Month: May 2004

I’ve only been working for two weeks and this is what happened…

You can feel it in the air
A potpourri of fun
The good time’s just beginning
There’s a party going on
You don’t need to bring a present
Or bring a friend or two
We’re throwin a Six Flags party
Just for you

There’s a party going on and you’re invited
It’s an open invitation
A good time celebration
We can hardly wait
We don’t wanna be late
Cuz everyday’s a party at Six Flags

There’s Foghorn and Tweety
And Sylvester the party cat
The Tazmanian Devil
Bugs Bunny wears his party hat
*Search the something something
You’ll find your party home
With Yosemite Sam and Daffy Duck
You’ll never party alone

There’s a party going on and you’re invited
It’s an open invitation
A good time celebration
We can hardly wait
We don’t wanna be late
Cuz everyday’s a party at Six Flags

There’ll be dancing in the street
And music everywhere
Come on and shake your body
Everyday’s a party here

Come on, Bugs, get down and party
Come on, Bugs, get down and party
Daffy, it’s time to party
Daffy, it’s time to party
Sylvester, you’ve got to party
Hey now, everybody party
Get up, get down, everybody party

Ohhhhhh yeahh (key change)
There’s a party going on and you’re invited
It’s an open invitation
A good time celebration
We can hardly wait
We don’t wanna be late
Cuz everyday’s a party at Six Flags
Everyday’s a party at Six Flags

*I’ll find out this line eventually lol. They need to make an mp3 of this so I can dance to it haha. I love this song!!

Save me from this prison
Lord help me get away
Cause only You can save me now
From this misery
Cause I’ve been lost in my own place
And I’m getting’ weary
How far is Heaven
And I know I need to change
My ways of livin’
How far is Heaven, Lord can You tell me
Cause I’ve been locked up way too long
In this crazy world, how far is Heaven
I just keep on prayin’ Lord
Just keep on livin’, how far is Heaven
Lord can You tell me, how far is Heaven
I just got to know how far, how far is Heaven
Lord can You tell me
[translated from Spanish]
(You that’s in a higher place
Send me down a blessing)
Cause I know there’s a better place
Than this place I’m livin’, how far is Heaven
And I just got to have some faith
And just keep on giving, how far is Heaven
I just wanna know how far

I heard this song on the radio this morning and it was in my head all day. Then I heard it on the radio again just now. It was finally out of my head. WHat are the odds of hearing that song on the radio TWICE in ONE day?! At least it’s a good song

Well Erin’s comment definitely helped me decide that I AM going to try out for Jeopardy!

I decided after today that I am not going to be mean to Jim anymore. I apologised to him online. he said it was okay. Then I said “I’m just going to leave you alone because you obviously don’t want to talk to me anymore.” And he didn’t answer me. I just can’t put how I feel about this into words anymore. I’m just so…floored by it all. And I want it to go away. And it’s not going to. And then I think…

I miss Tom. I miss working with him. I miss talking with him for four hours straight with no awkward pauses. He needs to work with me again. He needs to always work with me. I don’t care if he’s obnoxious and immature. I want to work with him again. Forever.

I’m sorry that I’m so emo lately.

On a lighter note, this is definitely what is happening with gas prices (it’s a picture that wouldn’t show up on here). It is courtesy of Steve Solari.

My mom is going to be home in a few minutes. I haven’t talked to her since this morning so I dunno what’s going on. But obviously she’s okay enough to come home.

Jenny Gregovich has a xanga now. She put in her two weeks notice aww.

So like I decided that Jim is a jerk and is not worth my time at all. Well, I’ll talk to him, but I would definitely never consider dating him in the future if I had the chance. He barely talks to me anymore. Psh whatever. Then I was feeling sick today and he kept making puking noises. Thanx.

But I got him back.

Well not quite.

I don’t want to get him back.

Cuz I am not like that.

But this was funny anyway…

So I saw [Lindsay’s friend] Robert during lunch today while I was sitting with Jim, Chauncey, and Michael and I talked to Robert a little bit and he said he’s one of the characters who dances up front. He said he’s the one who always comes over wanting to be frisked and playing with the wand. So anyway, after that conversation, when we were all out front again, Daffy Duck came over and tapped Jim on the should and gave him a high five, hugged him, and walked away. And Chauncey goes “You know that’s a female in there.” So then Daffy came back later to PLAY WITH THE WAND. I realised it was Robert (who, btw is gay… {but if you know Lindsay you didn’t need me to tell you that haha}), especially since this Daffy is as short as him. So then he walked away and I was like “Jim, guess what, that’s not a girl. It was the guy I was talking to during lunch. And he’s gay.” Then Daffy came back again, so I was like “Hey, Daffy, would you like Jim to frisk you?” And he nodded. HAHA. Jim didn’t like that, but the rest of us did. And I plan on doing that as often as I can. Cuz it’s funny.

Wow I am a biznotch. Although Tom and Vanessa have both offered to beat his @$$ (and Tom offered to kill him as well) and I said that’s not necessary. See, I’m nice! No, I’m just really upset by the entire situation. Pray that I will be able to stop caring about this so much. It’s so frustrating.

The following people came in today: Sarah Roman, Chris Aske, Jim Redmon, Matt Santeler, Al Korte, and Danielle Allen. I had to wand the following people: Danielle Allen.

Jeopardy is going to be in Chicago this summer searching for people for the college edition. I signed up. They sent me an e-mail today telling me I have two days to let them know if I would like to try out on Sat, June 26 at 9am. I’ll have to take off work. Should I do it?

My mom is in the hospital right now cuz her blood pressure is through the roof. They’re keeping her overnight. I work 9-4:30 tomorrow and we’re not allowed to bring cell phones with us, so I won’t be able to know for a long time what’s going on and if she’s alright. So everyone reading this right now, please pray for her. Thank you.

Also, Fantasia won. Psh. Whatever. Neither of them should have won, but Fantasia should have won less lol. And my dad was here before getting some stuff for my mom and he was talkin to me, but he left just in time for me to hear Fantasia and Diana singing MY solo from Lights last year. I didn’t hear it all, but I heard enough to know I not the only one who sucks at it haha.

So yeah, pray for my mom.

I’m going to shower now.

Okay, I don’t own any of the Friends dvds. I’ll buy them when they release all 10 seasons. But I’ve got that on there cuz of a certain episode. Because Jim = Ross. The Jim update will be at the end of this entry.

Hmm not much to say. I’m not allowed to dance at work anymore because we’re ‘not being paid to dance with them.’

Jorge told me I look like 16. And he asked me if I’m always smiling and I said no and he didn’t believe me. HAHA that’s so awesome. It’s cuz he wasn’t there on Saturday when I was upset about Jim.

Some guy whistled at me last night at the RL community center.

Also, some guy sent me an e-mail a couple weeks ago that said he saw my pic on egoyk.com and wanted to let me know that I am ‘absolutely beautiful.’ Haha aww.

I left for work a half hour early today cuz traffic was bad yesterday and it wound up taking me like 40 minutes to get there and I clocked in at 9:03. So anyway, I left at 8am today and was stuck on Washington for so freaking long…it took me a freaking hour and 15 minutes to get there and I was so late. Stupid flooding. So now I guess I gotta leave at like 7:30 tomorrow. Bah.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Jim update~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well since I came late today, I figured I wouldn’t have to deal with Jim, but I was playin set back sort of near where he was. I noticed that he kept looking at me and I was trying to look away cuz I was really upset. So finally I looked at him and he waved to me and said “I can explain.” So I walked over to him, cuz no guests were coming in and he said “I really did have to paint my basement.” So I asked what colour and he laughed and said “White, but my dad has to put on the primer..” and I was like “Okay, I get the point.” Lol. But he was like “See, I was going out with this girl…” And I said “And you’re getting back together?” And he said yes. The thought had crossed my mind, but I didn’t want to put any ideas into his head, in case I was wrong. So he pulled a Ross. Great. I just wish he would have told me that to begin with. I asked him last week, after we made plans, why he doesn’t have a girlfriend and he said “I dunno really,” when the right thing to say was “I do, but we’re on a break.” Then I never would have agreed to go on a date with him in the first place. Seriously, that’s not cool. If you’re on a break, you don’t ask another girl on a date. He asked me if we;re cool and I said yeah. I’m not mad at him. I’m upset that he would do something like that. That is crappy. And I am upset that I cared so much. Because I hadn’t cared about any boys in over two years. And all of this happened so quickly. But it was better that this happened before I had fully developed feelings for him, and also that we hadn’t actually gone on a date. I just don’t understand what I was supposed to learn from this. But if he did that, I guess he’s not someone I’d want to date anyway. I dunno. I would just like to go back to last Saturday when I didn’t care about boys at all. It was so nice then lol. I’ll be fine though. And tomorrow is my day off, so yeah. But I’ll be fine. I know that for sure.

AquaraChik (9:37 PM): hi, can you talk now?
JimmyJck84 (9:38 PM): ya
JimmyJck84 (9:38 PM): sorry
AquaraChik (9:38 PM): it’s okay
AquaraChik (9:39 PM): i have reason to believe that you lied to me the other day. and i need you to be honest with me now. please
JimmyJck84 (9:40 PM): i know
AquaraChik (9:40 PM): why?
AquaraChik (9:40 PM): if you’re not ready to go on a date with me, why couldn’t you just say that in the first place?
AquaraChik (9:40 PM): i’m feeling the same way
JimmyJck84 (9:41 PM): sort of……
AquaraChik (9:41 PM): sort of?
JimmyJck84 (9:41 PM): you see….
AquaraChik (9:41 PM): you don’t want to go on a date with me at all
JimmyJck84 (9:41 PM): one sec.
AquaraChik (9:41 PM): ok..
AquaraChik (9:56 PM): are you going to come back?
AquaraChik (10:06 PM): alright, fine
AquaraChik (10:06 PM): but if you can’t be honest with me
AquaraChik (10:06 PM): and talk to me about this
AquaraChik (10:06 PM): then you’re not worth my time anyway
AquaraChik (10:06 PM): cya

What was that? What was the point of all this? It was just last Saturday that i didn’t care about boys at all and I was so happy with that. How can all of that change in such little time? I think I am most upset with myself. That I let this affect me so much. And in such little time. I don’t understand this. I am so confused. And the thing is, I can’t just say goodbye and forget about him. Because he’s going to be there. All summer. Oh man…

Lacuna? There is no Lacuna. *sigh*

I got to work early today and met up with Jim. I knew right away that something was wrong, cuz he wasn’t talking and when we were walking to the front gate, he was walking ahead of me a little bit, instead of next to me and putting his hand on my back when nobody’s looking. And I figured it was because he was have second thoughts about tonight. But I didn’t say anything to him. No, instead I just made it worse by saying that my dad wanted me to tell him that he used to work in Cary and asking what he was doing tonight and that I just realised I told Danna last week that she shouldn’t get involved with this guy if she works with him and that Laura and Rachelle came in and asked me who he was and said he was a good catch when they saw him. Yeah, good job, Jami.

So then when he was right about to leave he came up to me and told me that he was gonna have to cancel, because his mom probably made plans for him behind his back, like she does all the time (and he’d call me just in case). And he had told me last week that she does that, so I should believe him, but I know better. I mean, seriously, he had all day and waited til the last minute to tell me. He didn’t even tell me when I told him I’d call him when I left my house tonight. I’m smart enough to know that the real reason is cuz he’s not ready to go on a date with me. And that is fine, cuz I feel that way too. So I don’t know why we were gonna go on a date, I mean, we still aren’t sure how we feel about each other. And I guess the being not ready made me talk about it more, which definitely made it worse for him.

So then when I got off work, I went to my car and found this beautiful voicemail from him that went something like this…
Hi Jami, it’s me. Yeah uhh remember that thing I told you that my mom does? *Pause* Yeah uhh she did it again. She said I need to do da da da da da and paint the basement cuz it’s my brother’s graduation and stuff and I told her I have plans and she said she knew and there’d be other times to do that. So yeah, sorry. I’ll talk to you later. Bye.

Wasn’t that beautiful? *claps* Seriously. Wow I totally bought it. Oh wait, no I didn’t. I called him later to ask what colour he was painting the basement, but he didn’t answer his phone. I’m shocked.

I completely understand if he’s not ready to go on a date with me and I don’t blame him for breaking it, and I’m definitely not upset about that. but I AM upset that he lied to me.

Why would I want to go on a date with someone I’m not even sure I like? I know I’m not ready to kiss him or be in a relationship with him. So yeah. Well now I don’t know what is going to happen, but I highly doubt anything is going to happen between us, except for, maybe, umm awkwardness. Yeah that should be fun. This should be an interesting summer…

Also, I am not going to see him until Tuesday. I certainly don’t expect him to call me back. So we’ll just see what happens on Tuesday.

And just for the record, I’m not mad at him. Actually as I was thinking about this I just got mad at Tom haha. I’m never speaking to Tom again!!!! Haha j/k.

So I gave Jim my sn yesterday right before I left. He IMed me last night and we talked for two hours. He read my xanga. He said he’s feeling the same way I am. That’s really nice to know and I am glad we talked about it, so I’m not wondering for a really long time. But I don’t like not knowing how I feel. I have a feeling that I’m not going to know for sure until I do my stuff for Substance Abuse. God is like that. I am planning on doing them next week. Hopefully. Anyway, Jim and I are going to dinner tomorrow night. I’m driving out there. Sure hope I don’t get lost!

I had a dream last night that I decided I was ready to kiss him. And I did. And apparently he didn’t want to and he backed away and got upset. and I saw that it was Jimmy Stipanowich lol. Wrong Jim! Then I had another dream that I was driving to his house and I took a wrong turn and wound up in a part of Mundelein that I had never seen before. It looked like Mexico, except there was a Dominick’s in the process of being built lol.

This morning it stormed like a mother. And we were outside. I hate that stupid no PDA rule, he could have kept me warm! Chauncey told me he is going to call me JJ and when I asked why he said “You got a thing for Jim?” I said no. Guess I’m not as inconspicuous as I thought. And I asked Jim if tomorrow night is a date and he said it’s whatever I want it to be.That’s not a good enough answer lol. I told him I’d be fine either way and it’s his call. So it’s a date. I’m going on a date tomorrow. A date. Me. I haven’t been on a date with anyone other than Patrick. And he was my boyfriend. So yeah this is new for me. My work shoes suck so I walk really slowly and Jim was walking with me on the way to clock out. And I swear Chauncey was waiting for us, cuz after a while we met up with him and he was standing there and he goes “You guys are slow.” And I said “My feet hurt. I don’t know why he’s slow.” And Chauncey said “I ain’t stupid.” Well he better keep his mouth shut. This whole not being allowed to date other people in your department rule is stupid. And I really don’t care. They’re not gonna fire us for seeing each other. Whatever.

Emily’s gonna ruin it. I’m not even kidding. So I’m the middle Boylan sister. I am surprised I am one at all. I totally messed up the harmonies at the audition and I messed them up in Freddy My Love last year. Marc knows this. And I can’t sing second. This is crap. I’m gonna wind up getting really frustrated and cry. Please, God, help me with this. Also, Peggy..I don’t know who that is. But I have a name, so I have lines and or a solo. I’ll have to see when I get the script on Monday. Also, Shellie is stage managing, which is good, cuz I need my girl there! ❤
