We Apparently Have A Verdict

well seems that aunt flo decided to make a visit this afternoon. naturally i did not have a tampon near so i had to make do for a little while. im so putting some tampons in the bathroom at the precinct from now on. so yes i am not with child. which is probably a good thing! lol! and this means that i can give garrett the big middle finger. i hope something explodes near you in iraq and your snatch gets blown off. and yes, lesson learned. ok, many lessons learned here.

and yeah despite the fact that the world is a boy buffet im feelin very dissatisfied with the choices out there right now. im just not vibing with anything on the menu. sadly theres a couple really cute guys at work, but alas they are either married or engaged. tis a pity. but of course i dont need that kind of drama at a new place anyways so its a good thing. though there is one who is single and hes in a different unit. oh well, i got more stuff to worry bout in the next few weeks anyways. lol!

but speaking of work its going well. so far i havent felt my soul being sucked out of my body so thats a good thing. i generally laugh quite a bit lately at work. theyve got me moving to evening hours in dispatch the next two days so maybe i wont be so tired. and i managed to show proficiency with my firearm and shotgun so thats a good thing. hopefully things will keep rolling in a good way.

in other news, kt and i are speaking again. i finally got tired of it and called her and she actually answered. of course there was no mention of the hiatus and thats just fine. this is typical of our relationship, we have a period of seperation and then we come back together like nothing was wrong. no worries. i do need to figure out a bday present for her to make up for the last few bdays and xmases. yeah im bad about that kind of thing but i always end up sending something pretty good eventually. lol! she has in fact requested a lawn boy that can fan her and do needed chores around the house. funny enough, i could probably find somebody down in norcross, some poor mexican dude lookin for a job. maybe not quite what she was lookin for. lol! the search continues.

anyways, thats bout it lately. course im still havin sleep issues. we shall see how it goes tonight since i dont have to be up until late. fingers are crossed. and btw, i looked great in my new uniform. go me!

Babies and phones....

I've read it before, & can't remember which blog it was, but babies LOVE phones. And remotes. Not fake ones, but real ones. They know the difference. So I had to laugh a couple weeks ago when daughter K called and said heart squatter # 2 (now a year old) had gotten ahold of her cell phone while she was in the shower. HS #2 had pushed whatever number necessary (redial, hit send twice, whatever) & called my dad, her great grandpa. He answered, heard nothing......saw the caller ID (which is HUGE for my new millenium-challenged dad)...saw is was daughter K's number. No one talking? She must be in trouble! RUN LASSIE RUN, SHE'S IN THE WELL!! He dropped EVERYTHING, drove (going 9-0 I'm sure) the 10-ish miles out in the country to her house. Found her & HS #2 happily going about their day.......and after talking, thinking, etc.....figured that HS#2 had called him while K was in the shower. FUNNY. They got a good laugh. And he breathed again.

So K called a bit ago, we had a good talk - they are in town getting ready to watch the fireworks. Her M-I-L is in town, so she was with a bunch of people. We hung up......after a bit, my phone rang. My phone battery is going AWOL, so I didn't get a number showing up. BUT, I heard this little voice saying "hiiiiiiiiiiii". "hiiiiiii". I know this is HS#2's latest fun word we've been practicing, & it's about the only word spoken when we "talk" on the phone that doesn't sound Russian. So I laugh. And talk. She doesn't hear me - most of the phone is probably in her mouth. We are soon disconnected. I wait awhile, and call K's cell. Yes, it was HS#2, calling "Gamma Titty". The fun has begun. Thank GOODNESS she had already played this trick on my dad, and I had just talked to K - I knew all was OK, and I could laugh.

And just for the record? Build A Bear workshops have cells for the bears......I bought one for HS#2 - she thinks this one is REAL close to Mom's...

Vagina Vegas

well period watch 2006 continues. no sign yet but i did purchase a lovely three pack of the ept test and so far it says negativo. i figure ill wait a few more days and roll the dice again. im split about the whole thing. part of me wants yes because i think it could be a cool situation and part of me wants no because garrett has gone and disappeared again and i just dont need the drama. cutting bait is the plan if its negative. go off to iraq and get blown up or whatever yo, aint my probs.

as for the new job, its going well. im getting along with everyone. ive been learning dispatch for the last few days and its fairly fun. im doin ok on it. tomorrow i shoot with my new gun and holster. i like the new holster a lot. hopefully that will go well. next week i go out on the road. good times. stressful, but good. so yeah, so far its been a good time. i need to go and put my new uniform together and make sure i got everything and all that jazz. should be interesting to see myself in a whole new getup. good times yo. ill keep yas updated.

other than that, ive just been tryin to chill yo. i still keep having trouble staying asleep especially later in the morning hours. totally blows. i had some kind of wacko dream too but i cant remember. ive even been using the prescription sleepy pills my psychiatrist gave me but they arent keeping my asleep. not cool. hopefully that will work itself out eventually.

anyways, happy birthday kt. i owe you like 4 or 5 holidays worth of gifts now. pretty soon itll be a bentley's worth of swag. im so bad about that but i always come through eventually. i got your 6 yo.

anyways, its time to chill the fuck out yo.
