A Whole Lot of Nonsense

10 Jun

Life in a dumptruck

It’s what you’ve come to expect from me right? I know I haven’t been blogging as much as I should be. But my anxiety has peaked up a bit and I’ve worn all my ideas out on Twitter. Blame Twitter. Don’t join twitter though. Well wait do, but only if you’re sick of farms and cafes on Facebook. If your tired of ranting religious freaks and blah blah blah. Because on Twitter, they can follow you, but you don’t have to follow them in return. You don’t have to be friends on Twitter. Which is awesome.

Uhm okay so none of you that actually READ my blog read other blogs right? Except the few that do, and you know who you are, and you know why then I am going to scream for a moment. But my favorite blogger in the whole world is The Bloggess. She is wonderful. Go read her if you haven’t. If you have then you know what I am talking about. She honestly is what I wish I could be on my blog. Fearless and fearful all at the same time. Okay the point of this paragraph is: Jenny The Bloggess commented on my last post. I almost peed my pants. And then I was mad because I didn’t see it the day she posted it for some reason. (work) And then I was excited because she COMMENTED on my blog. It’s like I have arrived.
I read today on another blog at Mom-101 about blogging not being a contest. But if it were a contest I am now a participant because a blogger that other bloggers know and love commented on my blog. Not just emailed me like some have before when I email them, but COMMENTED. Because commenting is a big deal to bloggers. And since I blog, I want comments. This means YOU people. I know I don’t really open up in my posts to deserve comments but really. If you read, why not say “Jesus your a freak, Randa.” or something! Because in this contest of comments and awesomeness I am losing big time. And you know that in my competitive nature I also have this fatalist side that says “If I’m not winning then I shouldn’t be playing at all.” (OH MY GOD I HAVE DERAILED.)
Main point…I don’t know how many times I can say this but I felt really just “wow” and “holy fuck” about this one comment. And if I started getting more comments I think I would be like that all the time. (I’m kinda begging here now aren’t I?)

So I made new Twitter friends and a new Twitter Friend was bragging talking about all her ideas that she has for her blog and she has to write them all down. And I have those ideas but they never translate. I should just do a video blog. But then I think I’m more funny in a team than just by myself. So I don’t know how I would work so well just talking to a camera. One day I might just try it.

I applied for a job. I know I just got “promoted” but whatever. This job is better. It pays more then double what I make at WalMart. I have to take a typing test and a map test next Tuesday for it. I just tested myself on line and passed at 71 words a minute. Not too shabby. All they want is 40wpm. I think I can handle that. Oh and the map thing. I think I’ve been living in Spokane a total of 10 years or so, so I think I can figure out the streets. If not then how the hell have I been getting around all these years?! Still they suggested to study a map of Spokane. I don’t know what to study for, so I’ll just look at a map for a while and call it good. Oh the job is for Police Dispatch. There is only one position open so I think I have to score pretty damn good on the test to even be considered. Good thing I don’t get too nervous about these things.

Uhm what else is on my mind…I downloaded a whole bunch of new music. My iTunes are like a top 40 station now. Suck it. I like most of the top 40 aight? I am kinda glad Glee is over. I was getting to where I wasn’t liking it so much. And then ending was just a “meh” for me in general. I do love Idina Menzel (if you don’t watch look her up she plays in Wicked). Maybe I’ll do a whole post on it because you know that you have to hear my opinion about that show.

Oh, my brother is coming into town, I’m excited. I might actually get to see some basketball at Hoopfest this year. If they give me time off. Which they should because I’ll be working 6 days straight before the new schedule comes out and I will throw a fit if they make me work more then 6 days in a row. I will. I’m a Diva like that. Speaking of work. Man I really like not being on a register, or standing at the door. And I have been told by several co-workers that they are glad that I got the spot, and that I have the right personality for it. Which is always nice to hear. I also thought that I lost 10lbs in the first couple of days just because of all the running around crazy like and sweating like a pig, but no. No weight loss.

I am going to talk to my trainer, soon…about maybe switching up the training. Because I have to pay for the training sessions no matter if I quit the gym or not, which is BULLSHIT. But I think I’m going to talk to him about maybe meeting me at a bigger club and just playing basketball for an hour. Because I would much rather do that then lift weights while he stares at me. It creeps me out. I would also probably lose just the same amount of weight playing b-ball vs. lifting weights in front of a mirror at a place where everyone else is skinnier then me. I would pay someone to play basketball with me. This is what I have come to.

My new favorite song, that is playing right now is: Airplanes by B.o.B. featuring Haylie Williams of Paramore. (Who I LOVE!). I don’t know how to add music because I’m an idiot. But I think I can type out the chorus and first verse while listening, I am almost a trained transcriber you know…

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now.

I could use a dream or a genie or a wish to go back to a place much more simpler than this.
‘Cause after all the partying and smashing and crashing and all the glitz and the glam and the fashion and all the pandimonium and madness there comes a time when you fade to the blackness.
And when you stairin’ at the phone in your lap, you hopin’ but them people don’t call you back
But that’s just how the story unfolds.
You get another hand soon after you fold.
And when your plans unravel and they’re saying ‘what would you wish for’ if you had one chance.
So airplane, airplane sorry I’m late, I’m on my way so don’t close that gate, if I don’t make that then I’ll switch my flight and I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night.
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now.

I think I’m done. Maybe I’ll have more direction if I post more often then once every other week.

    HEEEYYY!! hi it has been a while since I have bothered you so I am doing it now. I wanted to tell you that the reason your personal trainer makes you lift weights is because weight lifting helps you burn calories longer than just running or riding a bike. After your lift weights your body continues to burn calories even when you go to bed that night. =) just tell your trainer to fuck off while your lifting HAHA that way you don’t have to deal with the staring because that would annoy me too.

    Oh Randa you are so sicotic (psychotic) (Jan had to help me). Are you really mine? You rambled on and on. I want you to have that job it would be wonderful for your whole family. I do love you and all that jazz.

    So, a blog about nothing? You could change your name to “The Seinfeld Blog”. Just THINK of the hits you could gain from that title!!!
