Month: June 2006

Who wants to buy my Mac?

Blahhhhhhhhhh. I need a lap top. That’s all there is to it. I haven’t been to class in three weeks, because I’m dumb and I can work on it at home, but only if I have Windows. I also need a lap top so that I can get a Night Assistant job at school next year. I’m already up til 4am so why not get paid for it? But I can’t do it if I don’t have a lap top, otherwise I’ll just be sitting there staring off into space for five hours. So I wake up and there’s a lap top for me. But it’s a freaking PC. I cannot believe my Mom would even CONSIDER buying me a PC. But she said it’s because it was only $500. But I just can’t…no…I can’t. I get so frustrated even trying to use those Pieces of Crap (yeah, I know, real creative). And Macs now have the ability to have Windows on them.

So if I can do that, then I may as well just get a Mac, because then I can sell my other computer and only have one computer. But the problem is selling it, because I don’t know anyone who would want to buy it from me, even though it’s less than 11 months old and in really good condition. So I don’t know what to do. As it is I am struggling to get out of debt. I just don’t know what to do. Blahhhhhh.

All of a sudden I have several people who want to hang out with me. becky Peadro just moved to Vernon Hills a few days ago, so she is asking to hang out. I might be going out with Kate on Sunday night, I was invited to go to rib fest with Josh and Melissa on Sunday, but it’s pork, Kristel wants me to go clubbing with her for her birthday next week, and Mandy is going to be in town this weekend and this weekend only and she wants to hang out. It’s just weird to me haha.

Monday I am driving out to Naperville to meet Melissa because we are going to the Ren Faire next week and she is going to make me a dress and we have to pick out material.

At last MySpace has the option of making your profile private without having to say you are 14 or 15, so mine is private now and says I’m 21.

I’ve heard from Martina a couple times this week. She’s gone back to Slovakia and all of a sudden her English is bad: “I’m eating pills for baby and I go nuts.” Spencer will get a kick out of that.

Miri is going to be in Chicago in August and needs somewhere to stay and I said she can stay here and I’ll just go back to school a day later, but I just got a comment from heidi on Facebook and ugh I miss my friends so much and I just can’t wait an extra day. I feel bad, but I just need to be around my friends again and I can’t wait any longer than needed.

I wish I could go back to college.
Life was so simple back then.
What would I give to go back and live in a dorm with a meal plan again!
I wish I could go back to college.
In college you know who you are.
You sit in the quad, and think, “Oh my God!
I am totally gonna go far!”

How do I go back to college?
I don’t know who I am anymore!
I wanna go back to my room and find a message in dry-erase pen on the door!
I wish I could just drop a class…
Or get into a play…
Or change my major…
Or f**k my T.A.

I need an academic advisor to point the way!
We could be…
Sitting in the computer lab,
4 A.M. before the final paper is due,
Cursing the world ’cause I didn’t start sooner,
And seeing the rest of the class there, too!

I wish I could go back to college!
How do I go back to college?!
I wish I had taken more pictures.


Dumb laws of Mundelein, IL:

1. You are not allowed to post signs in town if your pet is missing (which Ivy still is)!

2. Ice cream trucks are not allowed…because little kids might get run over!

Jami86e (1:48:03 AM): cuz he might be coming clubbing with us
Jami86e (1:48:11 AM): i plan on taking advantage of him while he’s drunk
twztdbuttafly420 (1:49:55 AM): =-O
twztdbuttafly420 (1:50:10 AM): who is this jami??? and why havent we been friends longer!

So Kelly and I were going to go to this the other day, but it didn’t work out.

Ivy is missing. We haven’t seen her since either yesterday morning or the night before. We have had her for 4.5 years and the longest she has been gone is maybe a couple hours. My Mom’s friend, Leigh, who is a guy but spells his name like a girl, seems to think there was a spaceship outside of our house and Ivy wanted to get on it. *rolls eyes*. I don’t like her, but I don’t want her to be dead. She should come back. If anybody in Mundelein sees a cat that looks like the one from Meet the Parents, send her here.

And now some videos:

Look at this Frodo Graph, everytime I do it makes me laugh.

Methinks it’s time for an entry.

First of all, I know famous people. A lot of them. Okay well three.

1. Robyn. Go here and vote for the video by ComedySportz Chicago. It is clearly the best video on there, but they need your votes anyway. Robyn is the skinny one with the sun glasses. She was one of the coaches when I was on the HSL. She is awesome.

2. Katherine. Another awesome one from CSz. Probably my favorite coach. She is going to be on a show on VH1 next month called “World Series of Pop Culture.” It will be on July 11.

3. Scott Thomas. I met him through the ex in 2001. He’s in a competition with Lollapalooza called “Last Band Standing.” So go here and under “Find artists” click on “S” and find Scott Thomas and vote for him.

It’s official. I am going to be on the University Board Comedy Committee next year, which means I get to help decide which stand up comics we get to come play at Eastern.

The hamster died. A few days ago. She figured out how to break out of her cage, so we bought her a ball. She figured out how to break out of that and wound up eating something she shouldn’t have (we think) and she spent 24 hours in the process of dying and then she finally went. It was sad because she was just lying there…ugh I don’t want to think about this. But the guy whose hamster it was wouldn’t come get her or pay to have her put down, so we just had to leave her there to suffer. Then after she died he wouldn’t come pick her up, so Marni brought it over to his house and left it on his door step. s the story goes, his six year old cousin found it. Poor girl lol.

Christy came home last weekend for the weekend and wound up sitting next to Barak Obama on the airplane (in coach, not First Class). It’s funny because she was so excited to talk to him even though he’s a democrat. She said he was really nice and he said something like “I hope one day you realise which side you should be on” haha. He’s awesome.

So I went to go deposit my paycheck today and on the way I decided I should stop at MHS to try AGAIN to get my freaking diploma. I don’t understand why I don’t have it yet grr. So I walk in and find the woman I’m looking for who has told me several times over the past few years she needs to make me a new one, takes down my name, when I graduated, and my number and says she’ll call me when it’s made. June 22, 2006, 21 years old JAMI STILL DOES NOT HAVE HER FREAKING HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA. A while ago I had wanted to apply for a police dispatch job that would have paid prolly between $17 and $20/hr plus amazing benefits, but I couldn’t apply because they needed proof of high school diploma and I not not freaking have any proof. So now I am getting mad. No, I am not mad, I am ANGRY. PISSED OFF. WANT TO POP A CAP IN SOMEBODY’S…okay so I explain to her that I have tried several times over the past few years to get my diploma, using my assertive voice. No, I am not yelling. Oh, believe me, I am not even CLOSE to yelling. I am using my assertive voice. So she asks me who I have tlaked to over the phone who said that NO I HAVE TALKED TO YOU IN FREAKING PERSON. I am so sick of this BS, but I’m still not yelling. So she says she’s going to see if she has it. So I am about to follow her and the idiot guidance counselor that overheard the conversation says he needs to talk to me and he tells me he understands that I’m frustrated, but I need to be nice. OH BELIEVE ME, THIS IS ME BEING NICE. He said I shouldn’t take it out on her because it’s not her fault. No, buddy, it IS her fault, because she keeps telling me she’ll make me a new one blah blah blah. I walk away from him. I know that the guidance counselors at MHS are idiots. I went through like five of them in high school, but even they were smart enough to leave after Stan Fields became the superintendent. The fact that this guy is working for Stan Fields is proof that he is incompetent. And he doesn’t know me at all or the situtation, sow hat right does he have…grrr. So I go to her office and oh look at that, my diploma. In her giant pile of other diplomas she has been hiding from people for years. So I take it and walk off in a huff. Not onjly did she not call me when they made me a new one, but after further examination, I realise there is no possible way that is a remake. First of all, it says on there i graduated in May 2003, which is not true. Yes, it is possible that they could have made another one that said May 2003, however, the superintendent who signed it is Arthur Newbrough, who retired in June 2003. By the time I graduated, Stan Fields was the superintendent. So even if they HAD made a new one, they would not have gotten Arthur Newbrough to sign. UNBELIEVABLE. I cannot even believe how upset I am. No, I have cooled off quite a lot, but before I was so angry. I don’t understand why they had to lie and couldn’t have given it to me, it’s not like I had fines to pay or anything. Man.

I finally got around to scanning my new driver’s license pic. I can’t decide whether or not I like it.

You Are 16% Sociopath

You’re empathetic, loyal, and introspective.

In other words, there’s no way you’re a sociopath… but you can spot one pretty easily!

You Communicate With Your Ears

You love conversations, both as a listener and a talker.

What people say is important to you, and you’re often most affected by words, not actions.

You love to hear complements from others. And when you’re upset, you often talk to yourself.

Music is very important to you. It’s difficult to find you without your iPod.

You Are 32% Lady

You tend to make up your rules of etiquette, throwing all conventions aside.

And while you try to be a lady (sometimes), your behavior is often quite shocking.

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are a warm hearted and open minded person. It’s easy for you to forgive and forget.

You are a very grounded, responsible, and realistic person. People may not want to hear the truth from you, but they’re going to get it.

You see yourself with pretty objective eyes. How you view yourself is almost exactly how other people view you.

Your near future is calm, relaxing, and pretty much what you want. And it’s something you’ve been anticipating for a while now.

For you, falling in love has never been easy. You can only fall for someone who is very patient and persistent.

I sort of stumbled upon this by accident, but I had to post it. Anyway, if you have not seen the Swingsationsw costume change from 2002 you need to watch the first 50 seconds of this video. It will blow your mind. This is literally one of the coolest things I have ever seen in my entire life.

Perhaps it’s time for a new entry.

First of all, to celebrate Spamalot, Ben and Jerry’s has created a flavour called “Vermonty Python.” Well, it was in my Spamalot newsletter, so I figure it’s because of the success of Spamalot. We interrupt ourselves with much hooting through tin horns to bring you this brilliant new ice cream, made from dried shrubbery and old cereal packets. This is a ripping good flavor, really, so buy it quickly and run away, silly person, or we shall taunt you a second time.

Let’s see, where to begin.

I’ve finally started floating now. For some reason they scheduled me to float on Friday and Saturday night. And, like I suspected, they took me out of it once it got really busy. Well jeez, they schedule me for the two busiest times of the week, what do they expect? I’m not Martina, jeez. But tonight I was scheduled to seat and Olga was floating and she is slower than me. She had to mark off on the labour card which tables were taken and she would pull it out and look at it, so I said I would float and I was fine. In fact I think I did a good job. I got through a wait and got us off the wait, and I did not have one single Safari Guide complain to me that they had been double sat or weren’t getting enough tables. And the biggest party that came in was a nine and we had the big eight top open so yay.

They’ve been short on Tour Guides, since they decided to fire six people in the past month. I have been scheduled for six shifts this week. They scheduled me for exactly 39 hours because there is no
overtime allowed lol. But they just hired six new people, and gave Amanda her job back, so next week I am scheduled for four shifts and one on call. Psh. Oh and they hired another woman from Slovakia named Martina as a Tour Guide. It’s funny.

Went to Denny’s with Hayley sometime last week. Not sure which night lol. Ran into Daniella.

I started my math class last week. After two days I found out if I do the self paced course, it is possible to finish both that class and the next class this summer and only pay tuition for one class. After tomorrow I should be done with the first half of this class, even though I started two days late.

I randomly got a message on MySpace from my cousin Brent, whom we have not heard from in nearly four years. He said he had a feeling I would be on there.

I was supposed to go out with Tom the other day, but we all know how that turned out. It doesn’t matter, all he wants to talk about is how hot he thinks Rachel is and then he expects me to put in a good word for him HAHAHAHAHA.

Saw the movie “Keeping up with the Steins” last week. And we saw it in highland Park too so everyone in the audience was Jewish. It was great.

Evelyn from retail came up to me yesterday and said, “So, Jami, since you’re Jewish you can’t celebrate your birthday right?” I’ve been asked a lot of stupid questions, but I’ve never heard that one before.

Marni told us the other day that the hamster will be joining us for ‘a few months.’

Pat Gonder came into Rainforest the other day. It’s funny because I went to his office a few daysd prior to that to talk American idol but he wasn’t there. So we talked American Idol, briefly. He really liked Elliott what???? Oh and as he was leaving his last words were “And Clay Aiken is gay!”

Last night we put salt in Sam’s water. And by we I mean Spencer. But she figured it out because there was pepper in the salt shakers. And I am pissed because she thinks I am the one who did it and Dan is telling her that I am the one who did it, even though all I did was stand there and watch lol. So now she is saying she is going to get me back grr. And of course when she asks Spencer he’ll say I’m the one who did it. Ugh. Dan is also trying to tell me that he did something to my water once and he said “Just ask Spencer” and Spencer was not even working then. Then he named someone else who was also not working that day. But oh boy did I scream when I was in the kitchen and Dan came up behind me and put four ice cubes down the back of my shirt. There were like 10 people standing right there who saw it and were wondering why I would scream. Well jeez I’m sorry I’m not used to people putting ice cubes down my shirt lol. It would be different if I had seen it coming.

Your Dosha is Pitta

You have a quick mind, a gift for persuasion, and a sharp sense of humor.

You have both the drive and people skills to be a very successful leader.

Argumentative and a bit stubborn, you have been known to be a little too set in your ways.

But while you may be biased toward your own point of view, you are always honest, fair, and ethical.

With friends: You are outgoing and open to anyone who might want to talk to you

In love: You are picky but passionate

To achieve more balance: Be less judgmental of those around you, and take cool walks in the moonlight.

You Are 48% Gross

You’re more than a little gross, but probably no more gross than the average person.

Maybe it’s time to drop some of those disgusting habits that could eventually embarrass you!

International Signs.


Since the show we want to see on Broadway (The Drowsy Chaperone) is nominated for 13 Tonys, we decided it would be best to try to get tickets before the Tonys air this coming Sunday. So I went on and we decided the seats were amazing, so we ordered them and we will be sitting OCHESTRA ROW F JUST RIGHT OF CENTER!!!! Be jealous. be very jealous.
