I am finally moving out of my aunt's house. I've been so stressed out lately, I'm suprised I haven't had a heart attack yet. So my stepmom, well, okay, ex-stepmom has insisted that I come and stay with her so I can save up some money and go back to school and get a job that's better suited to my talents. Yesterday I threw my hat over the wall, in the form of one of my favorite things. I took over my box of Star Wars books because, I will admit it, I am a huge Star Wars geek. I couldn't bear giving her my West Wing dvds, though. I'm not ready to put them in a box just yet, lol.

So, hopefully by this weekend I'll be all settled in to my new, low stress invironment. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is having to adjust to a new surrounding. I have OCD, and here I've finally found a routine I can handle. Everyone here has already adjusted to my little... personality quirks. Now I have to get used to living with people I haven't lived with in years. I have never lived with my neices and nephews, so it's gonna be interesting. But, it's a good thing. I need to do this for my sanity. It'll be a while before I can get online, though, 'cause they don't have Internet yet. She said I could pay for it to be hooked up, though, and I'm going to have to since I plan on going to school online. So, yay for me! I'm excited. Nervous but excited. I think that's the name of a band who played a Pride Fest a few years ago.... lol.

So, according to the guy on the news, mold counts are high, as are ragweed and just about every other allergy count in the area. Which explains why I can't breathe! So I took a Benadryl. How is it that that tiny little pill can knock a person out for 8 hours and make them wake up feeling like they got caught under the tire of a mac truck and dragged for 100 miles?? I mean, seriously. It's tiny.

I'm not adjusting well to life without a dog. I miss Zoey. I've been sleeping practically all day long since she died. I sleep, get up and go to work, come home and sleep until I have to make dinner, then sleep some more. I keep thinking 'the dog's too quiet, what's she getting in to' or 'she hasn't been outside in a while, I've got to take her to go potty'. Yesterday I came home from work and saw my cousin outside on the porch and got pissed off 'cause she didn't have the dog with her. It's not going well at all. I miss cuddling. Zoey was my little cuddle bug... I screamed at my friend at work yesterday 'cause she asked me if I wanted a cat and I yelled at her that I wasn't REPLACING MY DOG!!! Not such a good day... there's dog hair all over my car from when I took her to the vet. I don't want to get rid of it, though, 'cause pretty soon it will be all I have left. Lisa from work is going to take the dog food so I don't have to look at it anymore. We've already put her bowl and leash up, and her collar got burried with her, a thing that I'm still upset about. The could've taken it off before they put her in the box.

...This is just a random post 'cause I have a few minutes before I have to finish getting ready for work. 9 hours today, yay fun. It's a long time to work with the public. I'm going to deserve my nap today.

So, my dog die sometime last night. She was sick for a week, suffering. We took her to the vet three times, and they kept her yesterday. They cut her open to see what was wrong, patched her up after taking a biopsy and sending it to a lab because they had no idea what was wrong with her, hooked her up to an IV and left for the day. She died, alone in a cold vet's office. They walked in this morning and found her. And then my aunt, without consulting me, told the vet that they could keep her body to find out what happened so it doesn't happen to anyone else's dog. My Zoey is not some fucking science project! She died alone! She shouldn't have to spend another second in that damn office and now I can't even go get her!!!! So, I spent all morning listening to KD Lang and throwing stuff. Now I've got to go to work, but not before I stop and buy myself some goddamn cigarettes. If I'm going to be depressed then by god I'm going to smoke. It's a coping mechanism. That and music. I'd still be curled up in a ball in bed if I hadn't turned on KD Lang. Now I'm officially pissed off. And I miss my baby girl. She wasn't even a year old!!! When I figure out how and have the time I'm going to post a picture of her. She was adorable. It pisses me off that she died, scared and alone, when she was such a loving dog. Now I have to get ready and go to work and try not to look like I've been crying since 8. Think it would look bad to have the first person people see when they walk in the store to be bawling her eyes out at the service desk?? LOL. RIP, Zoe-girl. Mama love.

So, yesterday at work some customer hugged me. She HUGGED me. Which, of course, caused me to have a panic attack because I cannot stand to be touched! By anyone, ever. Well, that's not true. I hug my nieces and nephew, and even my brother sometimes, but that's pretty much it. Unless I'm at a funeral or family reunion, it's an unspoken rule everyone knows. DON'T TOUCH ME!

That's why I don't date. Well, okay, one of the reasons I don't date. The other one is a six foot tall blonde who tore my heart out, ripped it into tiny pieces, stomped on it and put it back in my chest upside down with her fingerprints all over it. But that's beside the point. The point it, some stranger hugged me and I had a panic attack at work. Think they'll let me wear a shirt that says "Please don't hug the help"?

Who are your favorite television or movie villains? What makes them so deliciously evil?
Ann Stark from The West Wing episode The Leadership Breakfast. She's my favorite! She stirs up all this trouble and angst and looks good doing it. Does that count?

What tune do you regularly find yourself humming or singing in the shower?
It's usually a Broadway song. "I Know the Truth" by Sherie Rene Scott from the musical AIDA, or, if I'm feeling catty, "My Strongest Suit" from AIDA. But I only sing when I'm home alone, lol. Wouldn't want someone else to hear how bad I really am, lol.

When I got home last night, my aunt handed me a paper she got from her church about ministers being punished for officiating same-sex weddings. In it, the paper said they were calling for a vote to shoot down the, I dunno, rule or whatever that said they couldn't marry same-sex couples, and I said good for her church. We then went on to talk about New York making it legal, and she said they were in a lot of trouble. Which, of course, lead to the inevitable argument about my sexuality.

She doesn't get it. She doesn't get how I know I'm a lesbian if I've never been in a relationship with a woman. But I've never been in a relationship with anyone! I have known who and what I am for a very long time- for as long as I can remember. My inability to have any sort of relationship has nothing to do with my sexuality and everything to do with the fact that I can't even hold someone's hand. I don't hug people. I don't do touching at all. Why go out and try to find a date when, at the end of the evening all she'll get is a wave and a smile??? The only people I'm comfortable enough to touch are my nieces and nephew, and my little brother. But he's getting older, so I don't really hug him much anymore. My nieces and nephew just don't take no for an answer. They jump on my lap when I read them a book, and love hugs. I can't deny them that because I really don't want to be that kind of person. And, maybe it's helping me. I don't know.

What I do know is that I'm tired of people doubting my sexual orientation because I'm not acting on it. I'm not the sort of person who can or will run out and have sex with some random stranger just to prove a point. If I were straight, I still wouldn't be in a relationship. I have no doubts about who I am... I just wish she'd get that and stop pestering me about going back to church because I'm really not a lesbian and they'd love to have me. Yes I am, and no they wouldn't.

It's the beginning of the end, according to Harold Camping. How will you spend what could be your last day on Earth?
I spent today the same way I spent everyother day. Breakfast, talked to my family a bit, work, home, played with the dog and talked to my family a bit more. Yay, fun. He's a crackpot.
