my pet!

I'm so happy :) Maybe I'm just delirious from being sick. Yeah, I'm still sick, unfortunately. I ended up leaving work early because I felt like shit. My head is fuzzy and I'm dizzy and congested. Off and on I felt fevered but it's always cold in the office so who knows.

I'm loving Audioslave. I've liked them for awhile now, but I've grown to love them. They have a really good song out right now they play alot on 92.3 which I happen to love love love. :) I think Chris Cornell has the most calming voice. Of course Soundgarden was terrific too. Billy got me the Velvet Revolver CD for Christmas which I'm fucking stoked about. I'll always love Stone Temple Pilots more though, there's no doubt about that.

This cold I have is getting annoying. I can't think straight.

Well, I didn't see Nick tonite which really bummed me out. But he did tell me he wishes he could be here so he could figure things out, meaning if he lived here, perhaps we could explore. That is what he said.

He said I am an amazing girl. :)

Nick is amazing. He's one of the brightest people I know. He's creative and insightful and brilliant. How many times do I have to say, I wish he still lived here? He grew up here but, he's happier in Arizona. They probably have a better climate. I've been to Arizona before. I stayed in Phoenix with Eric for one night. It was 100 degrees (quite literally), there were a million palm trees, and I got dehydrated as we drove our rental convertible through the desert (also quite literally).

The Window Shopper
Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDf)

Loving, hopeful, open. Likely to carry on an romance from afar. You are The Window Shopper.

You take love as opportunities come, which can lead to a high-anxiety, but high-flying romantic life. You're a genuinely sweet person, not saccharine at all, so it's likely that the relationships you have had and will have will be happy ones. You've had a fair amount of love experience for your age, and there'll be much more to come.

Your exact opposite:
The Stiletto

Deliberate Brutal Sex Master
Part of why we know this is that, of all female types, you are the most prone to sudden, ferocious crushes. Your results indicate that you're especially capable of obsessing over a guy you just met. Obviously, passion like this makes for an intense existence. It can also make for soul-destroying letdowns.

Your ideal match is someone who'll love you back with equal fire, and someone you've grown to love slowly. A self-involved or pessimistic man is especially bad. Though you're drawn to them, avoid artists at all costs.

BEWARE: The Hornivore

CONSIDER: The Gentleman, The Loverboy, The Boy Next Door

Realizing more about myself, not being afraid to seize the uncertainty.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
I have had a couple of colds and a bout of the stomach bug

11. What was the best thing you bought?
It's not anything I bought, it's the money I spent on my vacation this year. It was one of the best weeks of my life.

Many people. Andrea, for taking a leap of faith & going where her heart was taking her, that's always a brave thing to do. Katie, for being her strong self.

"Playboy Mommy"-Tori Amos

& so many more.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

Depends on the day

Gone down to Columbus more to see Katie

Dwelling over Tom and berating myself for everything that went wrong with our "marriage"

20. How will you be spending Christmas?
Christmas is over but I spent it with my family and it was glorious

The war shit.

37. Who did you miss?
So many people. Andrew, Trisha, Nick. My family in Maryland and New Hampshire

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Oddly, it was this guy I met at Josh's Halloween party. His name was Brett I think. We only knew each other for a few hours, yet we ended up crying on each other's shoulders. I haven't seen him since. He was fascinating and dark and he gave me a hug when I left and told me, "I hope you feel better soon"

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2005:
To have faith that everything happens when and how it's supposed to.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
So I know it's just a spring haze
But I don't much like the look of it
And all we do is circle it
And I found out where my edge is
And it bleeds into where you resist
And my only way, way out is to go
So far in
Billowing out to somewhere
Billowing out
Luna riviera
Billowing out to Somewhere
from "Spring Haze"-Tori Amos

Christmas was good. It was unusually mild. Now it's windy and it was snowing when I woke up. And now I'm getting sick. My throat hurts and I hate standing up. I'm just blah. Ryan gave it to Billy, and Billy gave it to me. I thought I would have been able to sidestep it, but ever since my stint with mono in September, my immunity to colds has become poor. I thought, more colds..no big deal. But then you get dizzy and your nose is full and everything else.

On Friday I saw Nick which made me beyond happy. I met him up at this pub in North Hill and we watched the Cavs game and talked about everything. I'm sad that he has to go back to Phoenix on Wednesday. We might get to hang out today but I'm not sure. He mentioned he has to have dinner with his god mother today. I have always had feelings for Nick, but I disguised them for a long time. I exposed them and I think he might have some of the same feelings for me too. We have alot in common, and we can talk about everything. We see things the same way, and we make each other laugh. Not to mention, he's fucking hot. :) But he's such a breath of fresh air. He makes sense to me. Tom and I couldn't really talk about things. He didn't like having long conversations. In essence, talking to Tom was like talking to a wall. A gorgeous wall, no less. But looks aren't everything.

I feel fevered and drowsy. And I took a bath but the water was lukewarm because Billy was doing laundry. I went to see my grandma in the hospital on Saturday. She seemed better than she was when I saw her on Wednesday. She fell and broke her hip and her arm. It breaks my heart that she has to be in the hospital during the holidays. Her spirits are pretty good though. We brought her shrimp cocktail and chocolate-cranberry muffins. More than anything though, she wanted a cigarette. And she says that the hospital coffee is "damn awful". Ha :)

I hope everyone had a good Christmas.

The Cavs beat the Bulls, yeah!

Only one more day of work until a 3-day weekend. I am not sure if I'm going to Toronto for New Year's Eve or not. Well, the ex is still morose and icy. I haven't seen his face in a week. I try to leave my cubical and office as little as possible because I don't want to cross his path. I just may turn to stone. The sad thing is, I still care. It's obvious to me he doesn't, though. I am trying to let go, and I think as soon as I do, I'll be alot better off. I don't want to drag his name through the mud, because he can be a wonderful person, but not to me lately. I don't need this aggravation and bullshit, and I don't need his fucking agenda. He has come off as being the martyr to everyone, his family, friends. "You broke his heart" they all say. Where was all that sorry-ass pity when he broke mine? I broke up with him because I needed time to breathe, to think. I needed to sort myself out. I wasn't happy, in all areas of my life. So when I do get things in my head figured out, I expose it all to him. He says he can't love anything right now, that he doesn't know what his problem is. Then he is a total prick to me at that fucking party that I should have never gone to. He did not answer his phone when I called and he didn't call me back. So much for my fucking sunny message to him. He can shove it up his ass. Whatever. I'm getting pissed. My face is all hot now just thinking about how low I have felt and how he doesn't fucking care. Well, if he doesn't care, why the fuck should I? I need to move on. I have been putting myself under all this shame and scrutiny the past six months, and for what?

Fuck him.

In the work gift exchange on Friday I got the best of Frank Sinatra. :) It makes me happy.

My computer is up and running again, thanks to a brand new hard drive. Stupid computer viruses.

My Cavs just shut out the Utah Jazz. :) Ryan is back from Mexico but he's sick. He sounds all snotty and congested. I'm still pretty pissed at Tom. I have been going out of my way to avoid him. I don't even want to see his face right now. He is so emotionally stunted it's ridiculous. I never thought I'd say this about him, because I loved/love him more than anything in the world, but I am angry. Very angry. I'm knee-deep in shit once again. I can't stand how icy he is. If I wanted to be showered by chilliness I would stand outside in the freezing rain.

Today for a split second I thought that January had already come and gone and it was a happy thought. I hate January. If it was a person I'd kill it. I don't know why I thought January was gone already. I guess I was letting the optimism come through for a minute.

I changed the format of this journal-the pink cutesy stuff is just nauseating.

I have no tolerance for who he has become. I tried to reach out and be friendly and I get absolutely nothing for it. Karmic retribution? Perhaps. But I feel angry and hurt, as I should, because his behavior is absolutely childish and cold.

Christmas shopping yesterday. I still have to buy for my dad, stepmom, and Ryan. Other than that, I have it all taken care of. I bought the 1st season of Will & Grace yesterday, for me :) Made me feel a bit better.

Ryan gets back from Mexico tomorrow-I will be so happy to hear his sarcastic remarks once again. I have missed him. He has been in Puerto Vallarta for over a week and it's weird when he's not around. His laugh is goofy and wonderful.
