Level 70 and random statements.

*Lonely
*given up on friends
*gave up on clinic
*sleeping tons
*wishing i had more local friends
*need money
*need to recycle
*need to ebay
*reading "The Tale of the Body Thief" by Anne Rice
*reading "Absolute beginner's guide to ebay: fourth edition" by Michael Miller

It sounds like some birds have moved into my livingroom wall. They are quite loud and it sounds like they're actually inside the house. Fluttering around in the corner.

Reached level 70 in farmville. This is the top level that has been created. Now instead of telling me how much XP needed to reach the next level when I hover over the XP bar at the top it says "You are at the max level!" Okay now what? I guess just play to help others get xp and to earn the rest of the ribbons? Whatever. Guess I need to find new hobbies.

one million dollars


You are given a gift of 1 million dollars (kindly adjust for currency in your location). There are some restrictions on how you can spend some of the money, as follows:

$100,000 must be donated to charity. What charities will you support?

$100,000 must be given to one person that you know. To whom do you give it? What would you expect him/her to do with it? Would you put any restrictions on its use? Would it make a difference if you could make the donation anonymously?

$100,000 must be given to someone who has recently been in the news. Who gets it? Why?


$100,000 must be spent on a public beautification project. You can build a park, commission artwork, etc. What do you do, and where do you do it?


$100,000 must be spent on a memorial to someone/something that you have loved and lost. What form does the memorial take? Who is it for?


$50,000 must be spent studying something you have not formally studied. What will you study?


$50,000 must be spent establishing a scholarship. What's it for and who will you name it for?


$50,000 must be given away in a contest. What kind of contest do you hold?


$200,000 must be spent doing as many things as you can on your "lifetime to do list." Always wanted to see Alaska? Take a boat trip on the Rhine? What things would you do first?


That leaves you with $150,000 of mad money. If the rules say you can't spend that money on things that might be termed "practical," what do you buy on your spending spree?

~~~~~~~~~~



The $100,000 for chraity would be split among several charities. I would research charities to find ones that support children, mentally ill, people who cannot afford their medical bills, and food banks.

I would give $100,000 to my mom to pay off any bills, fix up the house for grandma and so she could take the kids on the vacation she's always dreamed of. I would not put any restictions on its use and I would only expect in return that she include me on the vacation.

For the person in the news who would get $100,000 I would give it to whatever child is local and extremely ill and who's family cannot afford to pay the medical bills etc. It would be for the child as well as the entire family because they need someone to step up and help them in some way or another to get through an incredibly difficult time in their lives.

For the $100,000 toward a public beautification project I would give it to a local library so they could make the library more appealing and get the publics attention so they can encourage people to read and use all the many other services libraries offer.

The $100,000 in memorial would be in meffypoo's name. I would want the money to be used to bring awareness and help those who have both physical and mental illnesses. Music would play a major part in the memorial.

With the $50,000 study money I would probably take a variety of different subjects in order to find something that I can actually be successful in. I wouldn't even know where to really start though since I've majorly failed at everything.

The $50,000 scholarship fund would be named for my mom and would help adults, especially parents, go back to school that aren't usually able to benefit from scholarships.

For the $50,000 given in a contest I would split the money between several winners who find the best ways to help people in need, and show the world that anyone can help others.

With the $200,000 to use on my "lifetime to do list" I would take my brother and visit every Disney theme park in the world.

With the $150,000 "mad money" I think I would have a hard time using it in un-practical ways. I'm a very practical type of person. There are so many practical things I wish for that using the money in what I would think of as wasteful ways would be difficult. Perhaps I would buy my way into Club33 at Disneyland though.

A few photos from Knott's trip on March 13, 2010


Though it was an extremely long day full of arguing there were a few fun moments. I think the minute or two on the Mexican Hat dance ride with the twins was the best part of the day for me. My mom's favorite part was when the guy guessed her age as 33 (she was turning 49 the next day) and she won the big stuffed banana as everyone watching was amazed and unbelieving her true age.

Keeping legs inside is no problem! The problem is getting them back out when the ride is over!!!!

29th birthday and Easter

My birthday and easter have now come and gone thankfully. On friday April 2 I went to Red Robin with Daneille, John, Emma, Goofio, Brianna and little Bella. Danielle gave me a card with $25 Best Buy gift card in it. Sergio gave me a card with $25 American Express in it. Emma gave me a bag of a bunch of different candy. Danielle bought me an alcohol drink with dinner. Since John used the coupon I had for a free burger they paid for my cheese sticks. Then John, Danielle and Emma and I went to karaoke at the English pub.
On Saturday evening Marcie and Eddie came over to my place and so did John and Danielle and we got Hungry Howies pizza and watched my mom's wedding video. Marcie gave me a $100 American Express gift card and a scratcher ticket from her whole family. She also gave me the Christmas/birthday stuff for my siblings. They gave Kylee and Dillon each a card with scratcher tickets in them for their birthdays and Hannah and Daniel each a Disney tshirt for Christmas. I took them to my siblings on Easter. Dillon, Kylee and my mom each called me at some point during the day to tell me happy birthday.

On Sunday I went to my mom's house. Mom gave me $60. Grandma gave me $40. I'm going to use the money to buy stuff I need at Costco (toilet paper etc) Mom made tacos. I got a chocolate bunny and $25 for the "cheap" movie theater from the Easter Bunny. Mom made 4 cheese cakes for my birthday and I got one of them for myself. Then Dillon and I went to Yogurtland where his girlfriend works and I stuffed my face. We took seperate cars and I went home from there and he gave Vann a ride home.

The twins each got a Toshiba laptop for Easter and a few dvds. I spent most of sunday afternoon working with the twins with their new computers.


On Wednesday Danielle and I went shopping. I used the gift cards from my friends to buy a Belkin coolmat thingy. It's a fan my computer sits on and it plugs into the usb port so the computer itself powers the fan. I also bought a WD MyBook Essential 1TB external hard drive. These were the two things that my friends actually intended their gift cards to be used for because it's things I've talked about wanting/needing for quite some time so I was able to actually get them now.



I've tried to keep up a positive attitude but I feel like shit all the time. Nothing ever goes right and when something does it never lasts and then I end up worse off than before. My butt hurts from this damn couch. The couch is at least 22 years old and is breaking down. I can feel the supports of the couch through whats left of the cushions. The cousins have several rips in them and stains and the wicker sides are all splintered and crap. I'm sorry I didn't take good enough care of the couch. Grandma says it was in perfect condition when she gave it to me when I moved here about 3 years ago. It was in better shape then yes but I dont think it was perfect. But it's my fault it is a crappy as it is. I am too hard on everything I touch.

written in late march

I'm a crappy friend. I'm crappy everything. I have not been there for friends when they are struggling. I want so much and take so much but give very little and often nothing. I'm so useless. I'm a burden.

I am so sick of feeling like shit. I hurt all over all the time. I have no energy.

I am a slob. I'm lazy. I'm ungrateful. I'm a bitch. I'm fat. I'm an embarassment. I do nothing. I just waste time. I waste time, money, space, resources.

I'm started my period the day I went and volunteered at the golf tournament thing to get my disneyland ticket. It was a long day but not difficult work. Most of the time was spent sitting in the shade in a golf cart waiting for each group of golfers to get to hole 7 and then marking off on the list we got their picture as the other lady snapped 2 shots of each group. Then I helped with various little things and sat around and waited for her to return with the developed pictures and then we glue sticked the pictures onto cards and gave them to each golfer. I was there from about just before 1 until almost 9. I only had to be there from 1:30-4:30pm to earn my ticket but I felt guilty that John and Danielle flaked out at the last minute. Not like I had anything better to do anyways.
