I must've been one of the most popular wives in South Wales this weekend. Jay's been drooling over this James Bond box set (all 20 films) so I bought it for him. (While we were playing hooky in Cardiff. Yay.)

We also picked up a pair of NBX wine glasses that went straight into our "bottom drawer." (ie: for when *please, please soon!* get our own place) It'll be great...like visiting the Addams family, I bet.

BBBBOOOOOKKKSSS.

*happy, happy I have books dance*

I went down to the library at lunch time to borrow Frankenstein and ended up with a bag of 20 books for a pound! Wahoo!

Jay's gonna be home tonight when I get there.  I don't know what I'll do when he goes back to work. (At least he finally beat the damn game!)

I got two emails that really made me laugh. Thanks to Katie and Gabe for that. Lol.  I have the best friends in the world.

Jay and I sat down together and ordered a bunch of DVDs from America. That was fun. And cheap, which is even better. (Two zombie movies though, so I'm getting ready for the nightmares now!) I've been trying to download the trailer to Corpse Bride, the new Tim Burton/Johnny Depp movie but I'm not having any luck. Sounds good though.

Jay's had a couple of days off of work because he was sick. It's really nice to hear "I'll be waiting for you when you get home." Awwww.  He had two days off last week and I asked him to cook dinner for me when I got home from work. The first day he ordered pizza and the second day he took me to McDonald's! Lol.

I think I'm starting a course on Monday that will give me a certification for being a Teacher's Assistant, which will really help get my Teacher's qualification. Yay! *happy, happy I have direction in life dance*

Quote of the day: "She looks like a South American Transvestite!"

Well, it's only 1 and I feel as though I've already had an adventure for the day. Follow the journey of the immigrant hobbit and gnome tamer:

7:15am: While getting out of bed, trying very carefully not to wake the slumbering vampire, I accidentally head butt (head butted?) him. Don't ask me how these things happen, they just do.

8:20am: While trying to get dressed, I remembered that Sweep (aka: that bastard dog) peed across my legs last night, thus rendering my only pair of clean trousers a mess. So, I ended up wearing a pair of Jay's very old jeans. Result: 80's style jean parachute look.

8:45am: I arrived at Risca Surgery half an hour early because Sue was the only person who could give me a lift and I sure as hell wasn't walking that far in the morning.

9:00am: I took my novel along to work on while I was waiting since I had one test at 9:15 and another at 10:20. Unfortunatly, I haven't looked at it in about a week so I had to go back and reread what I have done so far to catch up. Bad idea. I ended up starting to *gasp* revise, which I promised myself I wouldn't do. The very first page looks like Mrs. Juel got ahold of it, it's been marked so much.

9:10am: I have my blood test done surprisingly early. Doctor's on time? Shock!

9:30am: Early again! I went into the asthma clinic for more tests. The doctor gave me a phallic looking machine to blow into twice a day for a month to test my asthma. Her thoughts are 1. my asthma is getting worse and they need to put me on a preventative inhaler or 2. I have something called Post Nasal Drip Syndrom which just sounds beyond disgusting. I think probably the latter.

10:00 am: The 151 bus showed up and actually stoped FOR A CHANGE. The bus driver was creepy though and gave me a dirty look when I got on. Grossness.

10:15 am: I almost missed my stop because I wasn't paying attention. The bus driver stopped about a yard after the bus stop and gave me a dirty look when I got off.

10:20am: During the MILE LONG walk from the bus stop to my job, I came across the local library. Well...I could just PASS it, could I? I wasn't suppose to be in until noon anyway. I wandered in and showed my card to the nice librarian. She explained that my card is only good for Caerphilly county, not Newport county. So, she finds some papers and offers to get me a library card.

10:25am: I am now a member at all Newport county libraries. *drool*

10:40am: I leave the library happily with 1. "historical fiction" novel and 2. Donna Kooler's 555 Fabulous Cross-Stich Patterns. I'm happy.

11:00am: I got to the sauna that is my office and found that half of the workforce is still off sick. More work for me.

11:15am: I got crap from a co-worker for making call outs because he was suppose to be making call outs. I can't wait for everyone else to come back.

11:45am: A bunch of suites came into the office. Terrible timing. I had a tuna fish sandwich sitting, half-eaten on my desk. Busted, big time. I'm really bad with that whole, "no food in the office" rule.

12:00noon: I went on lunch even though I'd only been in work for an hour. I don't care, I wanted to work on my novel. You should always choose creativity over monotony.

1:00pm: I wish I was still on lunch. Better yet, I wish I was still in bed with Jay... Don't know if he's mad at me for head butting him though...

Some JERK broke into our car! They totally kicked in the passenger side door and ripped out all the starter stuff. The locks are all messed up now and there's a big gap between the door and the car. There wasn't even anything valuable in the car. What a bunch of assholes.

Sue's car was broken into the other day as well at ASDA. What the hell is wrong with these JACK ASSES?

Jay and I had a really nice week off together. We didn't do much or go anywhere but it was good just to RELAX. My poor Jay got sick over the weekend though.

Katie called me! Yay! *happy happy someone loves me dance* I hope someone will take your cats, Katie!

So...I accidentally welded a pan to my mother-in-law's stove... and... yeah... that's all I'm gonna say about that.

Went to see my first pantomime this weekend. Believe me, if you go to a British panto, you will never forget to take your birth control again! The kids ran WILD! Heathens! Monkeys! Screaming, running, drooling, spilling, MONSTERS!

I feel SO TERRIBLE! I made some poor woman cry on the phone today. I didn't even MEAN to! I just told her that the number she called was wrong. So is she a total mess or am I a horrible person?
