[music| Before He Cheats//Carrie Underwood]


Oh boy, I'm stressin' out a bit. All of a sudden, I have so much to do! I'm leaving for Europe with The Boy on Dec. 18th. I have to take all my finals week after next. And do whatever final projects my profs throw at me. So, another paper in Geography, another test before the final in Math, a paper due next week for Poli Sci. I've still got to do more research, because I'm slightly changing my topic.

In your opinion, what's the bigger issue facing the government, concerning abortion: Late-term abortion or parental consent/notification? I can't just write it on states baning abortion, or trying to. Thoughts f-list?

I have to go Christmas shopping for the people I'm going to see before I leave. My mom is having a little going-away/X-Mas party a few days before I leave. So I have to buy for:
Godfather
Little Bro
Littlest Bro
Uncle Leo/Aunt Anne
Dani/LJ
Grandma

I don't see why I have to buy stuff for my bros before I leave. I was just going to buy them stuff in Europe, 'cause I'm doing that for my mom, Ingrid, and The Boy's family. Well, Hanukkah presents for them.

And I keep trying to get a credit card, but I can't. And my mother has really bad credit, so I can't have her co-sign or anything. I just found out today that I owe Bank of America $105 for something, 'cause it's on my credit report. I have no idea what the hell that is for. I'm gonna have to try and clear that up this weekend. I had an account there when I was a kid and my father opened an account for me. But I never over-drew from it. It was my confirmation money, so I was like 14.

*le sigh* The last thing I wanna do is go to class tonight. This is going to suck so bad. I can't sit for 3 hours. I can't take a night class again. I don't have the patience. If she let us out early it might not be so bad. But she doesn't.

Huh, I jumped around quite a bit in this entry. Sorry. Well, I do have some good stuff: Amount I owe the Boy as of yesterday - we're down to $1083. I'll just keep slipping him money when I can.

Ohh, I got new shirts! New shirts, I love new shirts. Just some long-sleeved t-shirts. Because I've recently lost a good amount of weight, so I had to get rid of (ie donate) a lot of my old clothes. So I needed new ones. Still haven't gotten any jeans though, except for one pair. Even though my jeans are really big. It's just that jeans are more expensive than shirts. :/

My father offered to pay for my car. Well, at least part of it. And I don't know how I feel about that. I feel a bit like a hypocrite.

Because I don't like, I don't like who he is and who he pretends to be. I don't get along with him, I don't really have a relationship with him. But I'll take his money?

I mean, it's not like it's not owed to me. He hasn't paid a cent for my college, for anything of mine since my parents split 5 years ago. Nothing.

Should I let him do it? 'Cause I really don't have the money for it. And I don't want him to lord it over me. "Oh, you can't say that, I paid for your car." Because if that's the case, I won't.

And my mother wants to have a mini-Christmas before I go away to Europe. And she wants to invite him. I don't want him to come. I feel very uncomfortable when he's around. I think she would too, but she's willing to try it. Why aren't I?

I don't want him to meet The Boy. That's the last thing in the world I want. I'll get so pissed off if he tries to pull the protective father shit. Because he has no right. I don't care if it's starting to hit him that his children don't want to talk to him and he'll end up alone when he's old. He hasn't taken an interest in me in 5 years.

I don't know. I hate anybody I know meeting my father. Because then I'm always so afraid it'll influence the way they think about me. I'm nothing like him. Nothing. I'm scared I will be, though.

Comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. After, post this in your journal, and give out some letters of your own.

CHICKCAKES MCCGHEE!!!!!

I GIVE YOU A P!

So here goes for my allagainst

Potato chips: My most guilty pleasure. With dip, cheddar and sour cream, honey bbq, regular, wavy, crisps.
Pumpkins: Always remind me of the fall, of Halloween, of my birthday, of Thanksgiving.
Payday: C'mon. Obviously.
Prison Break: Even though I haven't gotten a chance to watch it in weeks, the boys are still teh sexy!
Point Place, Wisconsin: I wanna hang out with the gang! And maybe bang Hyde. I'm just sayin'.
Pie: Apple. Oh man, I love apple pie. I had that for my birthday dinner instead of cake
Pink: Such a girly color, but I like it.
Potter, Harry: Yeah, I'm getting creative with the placement of the 'P's here. But c'mon, it's Harry Potter! Who doesn't love Harry? 'Cept when he was all annoying and moody and whiny in OOTP
Prettiness: Who doesn't love some prettiness now and again? A rainy day can be pretty, a new pair of shoes, the way you look today. Pretty is good. :)
Paper bags: So much nicer to put your lunch in than a plastic one. I remember taking those on field trips back in Catholic school.




So I keep getting in trouble at work. Well, not so much getting in trouble. More like, I find out that one of my bosses has been talking about me behind my back. This 50-something fat woman must have nothing better to do with her time than bitch about me.

All because I got one kid to help me clean up my floor at closing and we forgot to re-fill the paper holders next to the computers? Bite me. And I was reminded tonight that I was to clean up by myself and carry around the clipboard and sign off of on everything after I did it.

I'm sorry, am I a child? I'm pretty sure I can handle tidying up without you breathing down my neck making sure it's neat enough. And the boss that's talking about me is the head of the children's dept. and everybody is scared of her. So nobody will contradict her. And I think she's punishing me by requesting I be in her dept. every day this week. It's torture. I'm working an 8-hour shift tomorrow and I better not be in children's with her. I'll either curse her out or cry.

And it's kind of unsettling to not know which one. But we'll see. I mean, I'm pissed that she's talking about me, but her being unhappy with me is nothing new. Hence, the 'blah.' I don't really care enough to be pissed off or really angry. I just want it stop. I'm done.

Maybe everybody is right. Maybe I should start looking for a new job.

I should totally be working on one of these things:

3. Term paper for Poli Sci

But I'm not. And The Boy just dropped me off from his house and nobody is up and I'm feelin' lazy. So here's a meme thing I stole from allagainst. 'Cause ILU! Hehe.

[music| Give a Little Bit//Goo Goo Dolls]

Ok, so, my birthday.

I saw my mom when she got home from work and she gave me a few little things. A bucket of popcorn, two movies ( GoF and The New World), the new issue of Cosmo and ballet slippers. Basically, stuff for a great night in.

The Boy took me out to dinner to this Italian place around the corner from my house. I wanted to go to a different one a few towns over, but they were closed, like a lot of places are on Mondays. But this place was really good. I just wanted some good food at a reasonable price, 'cause I didn't want him to spend too much money on me. I mean, he has it, but that doesn't matter.

Afterwards, we went back to his house because we wanted to watch House. I've basically got his whole family addicted to that show now. It's so great.

I talked to his mom for a little bit, I chatted with his sister while she was showing me her Halloween costume for school the next day (seniors get to dress up in their school), the norm. I heard him and his mom talking behind my back about something, but I just figured it was family stuff, so I tune out. Then I hear "No, Mom, after her presents." I turn around, and his sister tries to distract me while The Boy is giving me this little smile.

He takes me upstairs, so I could put my stuff down and he could give me his presents. I got: A yard stick of bubble gum balls (which was more for him, I think), a long-sleeve shirt of his to sleep in (because I had asked him for one, it's too cold to wear his t-shirt), this warm and fuzzy blue blanket for my bed (he remembered that I was telling him my room is freezing), and a HUGE terry-cloth Mets towel. It was awesome. Great birthday presents.

And his card was so sweet! He wrote "Happy 20th!! You are an amazing girl and I am so lucky to have you in my life. -Matt. PS, I can't wait to go away with you." How cute is that? See, part of my present was for him to take me anywhere in the states I wanted to see the Mets play an away game, on him.

So then we go down into his basement to put in the DVD. His mom calls us up for tea, and he runs up the stairs. I'm all like "What are we going up for? Tea? Since when do you want tea?" I was totally clueless.

I get upstairs and he has a goofy grin on, and his mother is pulling a cake out of the fridge! It was so sweet. The Boy went running around his house, getting his two brothers to come downstairs and sing to me. His youngest brother was already down there, and I was shouting up the stairs, "No,no singing! Nobody needs to sing! Leave your brother alone!" But that didn't work.

And they sang to me. And I got presents! A travel Scrabble for when we go away and The Phantom of the Opera DVD and book. It was great. I really like his family.

Apparently, his mother was freaking out that day. I had seen her while I was working that morning and I ran into the employee break room to grab something for her that my friend left. And we were talking and she goes, "Today is your birthday, right?" She was telling The Boy's sister how she didn't know I was coming back that night and she was totally unprepared and what should she get me? It was so cute. His sister suggested a DVD player, because mine is broken, but his mom goes "You guys work in a library. That means you like words, right? We'll go with Scrabble."

It was just really cute. Best birthday yet.

Except I don't think we're going to go away to see a Mets game.

'Cause I'm...

GOING TO EUROPE INSTEAD!!!!


In December with The Boy to meet up with his cousin. I don't have the money for the tickets right now, so he's fronting me the money for that. I had a talk with him that I don't want him to think I'm taking advantage of him or the fact that he has money, that I wouldn't care if he had none, because I'm not like that. So he goes, "Kerri, I want you to come, otherwise I wouldn't have asked you. I have no problem lending you the money for now, you can just pay me back later. We'll work something out."

I love him.

We're flying into Amsterdam and out of Paris. Paris!!

We're trying to figure everything out now. I have to talk to my professors and see if I can take my finals early. I dearly hope so. I'll just turn up the charm and wear a low-cut shirt. ;)

More details as they come!

It's my 20th Birthday! Yay!


I changed decades! Still can't buy a drink, but I changed decades! I think that's kind of a big deal. *smile*

I have to go get ready for work now (which kind of sucks), but I'm going out tonight with The Boy!

He said we can do whatever I want. I asked him how'd he know I wasn't going to pick something outrageous? His reply:

"It wouldn't matter if it was outrageous we'd still do it. 'Cause it's your day and we'll do whatever you want."

I'll update more later before I go out.

Hugs all around!!!

[music| Lips of an Angel//Hinder]


1. How do you deal with stress? Honestly? I tend not to eat. I'll be so focused on what I'm stressing about that I'll completely forget to eat.
2. Do you have a favorite "comfort food" and what is it? Potato chips. French fries. Mozzarella sticks. Oh God, pretty much anything fried. I'm bad.
3. Do you have a "comfort activity" and what is it? Used to be reading a fanfic, but I'm not heavy into a particular fandom at the moment. Watching bad reality shows on MTV might do the trick. Like that football one!
4. What days depress you and why? Thursdays. Because it's so close yet so far from the weekend and any fun. Plus, Thursdays are my longest days what with school and work and all that's in between.
5. What days excite you and why? Fridays. Saturdays. Sundays. Just because there's no school and I get to see The Boy. Hmm, maybe Sundays are best. I get to sleep in on Sundays.




Just got back a little while ago from a night out with some girls I work with. One of which was The Boy's sister. And we always have a ball, so it was fun. We wanted to take this other girl from work out. She always makes herself sound so lame, by saying she has no boyfriend, she doesn't see anybody outside of school, she's always home. She reminds me a lot of me when I was younger. So we decided to take her out for dinner and a movie.

And she was a little quiet and I felt a little bad. Because me and Abs can talk up a storm and we have a ton of inside jokes. But I really tried to talk to her and bring her into our conversations. I don't know. She said she had fun and she didn't seem like she was lying. This is probably the latest she's ever stayed out.




One reason why I'm so exhausted? I was at The Boy's house until nearly 2am last night. And we were pretty much just talking. It was really nice. I just...I don't know, it's just hard for me to find the words to describe how I feel about him, how he makes me feel. I can't get enough of it. I feel like gold. Nah, even better, platinum. *wink*

I was a bit annoyed with him last night though, when I found out he hadn't stopped at the store for condoms. *sigh* But it's alright, I'll probably see him tomorrow night.




Oooh, my b-day is in 8 days!! 20th Birthday for me!

Please God let them win.

Let us all remember the 6th inning.

11-3 Mets, Bitches!!!




I'm trying to remember other things I wanted to write about, but the playoffs are taking up too much room in my mind.

Oh, it's official. Me and The Boy are official. He's my boyfriend. And that feels so good to say. I think I'm loving this boy.

And more stuff happened with us, but I'll save it for another time when baseball isn't on and I can give it my full attention. :)

I was oooh so close to getting my laptop back yesterday. But instead, Brother's friend is going to delete everything on it, burn me a new copy of Windows XP and it should run fine.

That'll just take a little bit of time.

And then I will be back to posting more regularly! I'm sure you guys can't hold back the excitement. *rolls eyes*

It's just such a pain trying to get on the family computer to post a whole entry. I have to nag forever to get to do actual homework.

Which I should be doing now, but I'm not.

I'm either going to read my new Nora Roberts book, or see if this one Prison Break fic I've been reading is done yet. Hmmm, decisions, decisions.

But I have tons to share with you guys! Shit about work, school, family, The Boy. Most good, some bad, some just confusing.

Hopefully this weekend, if not, next week. Miss me?

Also, I'm really tired of my Prison Break layout. I'm thinking just something plain now. Maybe just a default layout from LiveJournal? It's hard to find layouts for free users, which is why I still have this one.

Thoughts, comments?

[music| Under my Thumb//Rolling Stones ]


1. What book or books were special to you in your childhood? The Witch of Blackbird Pond
2. What was particularly special or memorable about those books? It's what got me started on loving history. Plus, I really liked the lead character, Kit, 'cause I would've done the same things in her position. You really felt for her.
3. Have you re-read any of them as an adult? Yes, actually, quite often.
4. If so, were the books as good as you remembered them? This one was. I've read other books I was big on, like The BSC, but those aren't so good.
5. What do you think about movies being made out of children's classics (like the Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of The Rings, etc.)? I think it's pretty cool. Because now people are realizing that children's classics aren't just for children. That people of all ages can enjoy them.


Well, I'm off to go pack. I'll be in the city for a couple of days, hitting a few museums, doing some shopping. Told The Boy I'd buy him something. Have to get Ingrid's b-day present on Canal.

Hope everybody has a good weekend!

Brother's friend is fixing my laptop! Oh, happy days. And virtually for free, too. See, he's starting at my college in the fall. And he's taking several classes that I already have. And guess who needs textbooks? So, I'll be giving him my old textbooks in exchange for him cleaning out my computer. I'd say that's prettty fair, especially seeing as how I pay very little for my textbooks; gotta love the internet.

Don't feel like you have to read this next little bit. I just wanted to vent a little bit.

A little bit of Boy/Friend dramaCollapse )

I'm really not in the mood to go to work tonight. My throat is killing me and I'm so tired. I would call in sick, but today is the last day that two of my friends are working before they leave for college. So I'm just going to talk to them, not to do any actual work. Not sure if I'll get away with it, though.


I just feel like I've been tripping over my own words a lot the past couple of days. Things aren't coming out the way I want them to, they mean something different to different people, I'm afraid of opening my mouth so that I don't offend anybody. I think it's nearing that time of the month. I always think too much about what I say around now.

That would suck so much if I got my period next week. I have off of work next week for vacation, and the family is going to try and get to the city for a couple of days. And The Boy's (the boy I've been hanging out with) whole family is out of town next week, so he'll be having the house to himself. I'm planning on going over and keeping him company, since he asked so nicely. ;)

My laptop seems like it might have a virus or something. Everytime I try to open Windows Media Player, it tells me I have an Internal application error and when I click OK, it just shuts it down.

I can't open any of my music (all mp3 files). I can sign on to AIM, but I can't see my buddy list (blank space where all the names should be). I can't even view any websites that have flash or moving images.

I'm about ready to freak. I haven't had this for very long! My AVG tells me I have an infected file, but it doesn't tell me what to do with it. I tried to 'heal' it, but that didn't seem to do any good.

And the kid who fixed my laptop doesn't get off work 'till 7! I'm about to cry.

[music|Day & Night//Billie Piper ]


Ok, so I'm off to work. I've got to leave in about 15 minutes. This week is just kicking my ass. We did a kid's reading club all summer, and now we're having the big carnival for everybody who finished the right amount of books. No rides or anything, just a bunch of games and italian ices at the end. But it's going to be a long day. I haven't pulled a 1-9 shift since last summer. They suck.

And while I'm busting my ass at work all week, Brother is going to be camping out (for free!) with his friend's family at the beach in their camper. Just shoot me now. Go on, do it.

Anyway, I had a date on Friday. And it went really well. Really well, actually. He's very sweet, and very nice. And he's been calling me every day (well, I called him last night 'cause I didn't want him to think I wasn't putting forth any effort or anything). I mean, a guy who calls when he actually says he will? That's just the ult.

I hung out with him and my friend (his sister) last night and watched That 70's Show. It was really fun. I only stayed for a couple of hours, though. Left right before his parents and the rest of his family got home. I'm not quite ready to meet the family and all that. He said it was my call and didn't seem offended or anything like that when I said I wasn't comfortable with it. I always thought that meeting the family was something you did when you decided you were serious. Maybe he's more serious about this than I originally thought.

He's even making plans in advance with me. He's taking me to a Yankees game (*gasp, croak*) at the end of the month. Guess he wants to stick around until at least then. *smile* This is going to be quite a change. Never been to a Yankees game. *mutters under breath about those smug bastards, thinking they're so much better than the Mets* Only reason the Yankees are better is because they have more money to spend on their players upfront. I believe they're over-rated.

I won't go into too much of detail of what we did on our date or anything, 'cause I don't think you guys wanna hear all that. But, we did go to this private beach (his parents know the people who live on the private lane) at night. And it was so pretty! It was so clear out and I saw shooting stars! Usually I don't go for romantic mumbo-jumbo, but it wasn't like he planned it to be so beautiful out. So I just enjoyed it. And...yeah. We were there for about an hour and a half.

Shit, I've got to run. I just wanted to get this up, 'cause I know I haven't been around much lately. It's just been work.

Should I tell him I have an LJ? Hmmmm. I'm thinking not. My fandoms might scare him off. ;)

Alright, so I haven't updated in a while. Mostly because I've been working so much. And next week is really going to be hard. I'm doing 8-hour shifts on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. Wednesday is only 4 hours, but Thursday will be a split shift (9-12:30, then 5:30-9). I'm going to be dead tired. And then I'll be baby-sitting all day and most of the night on Saturday. At least I'll be getting a good paycheck and some nice cash on the side. I'll sleep on Sunday. :)

So, I have a date tonight! *ahem* I'm not going to get too excited. It's just one date. Is it even a date? Or is it just hanging out? Well, he's picking me up (score, he has a car!), we're going to the movies (he may have already bought the tickets online, and I'll give the money when I see him) and then maybe to his friend's party. He was sweet, saying he wasn't sure if he wanted to ask me to go there, 'cause he didn't want me to feel awkward. Actually, his friend who is having the party isn't even sure if he's having it; apparently, his parents go out of town a lot and don't tell him, so he's waiting to see what they're doing. *shrug*

I haven't actually met this kid yet (ha, I call him a kid, and he's 21 - older than me). I'm friends with his sister at work. I think I may have told you guys this, I can't remember. Well, she told him she worked with a really awesome, sweet girl and he should hang out with me. He's been away for vacation (Vegas for his 21st), so this has been the first chance we've had to hang out. But I thought my friend was going to be there. That's what she had told me a while back, anyway, that her brother didn't want me to feel awkward just meeting him or whatever, so he wanted her to come. Guess he didn't want her to anymore.

She was really cute about it. Making me promise that me and her brother wouldn't gang up on her. As if, I love the girl. But he seems really sweet. I talked to him on AIM last night and we set up tonight. He's actually going to call me when he gets home from work to confirm our plans. It's funny, he goes to the gym right around the corner from me; God knows how many times he's driven past my house.

He asked me for my Myspace. I really didn't want to give it to him, but I did. Giving him the chance to back out or whatever. Then he goes, "My sister was right, you are sexier than her other friend Kerri." Lol! I'm entirely sure he didn't mean it, but it was cute.

So yeah. Gonna wear my new jeans. Just debating on what shoes to wear. All of my sandals are either really high (cork platfrom) or really low (flip-flops). I could wear sneakers, but that seems too casual. I wish it were Fall. I have more shoes for the other seasons.

Ingrid got her boyfriend! I'm so happy for her! And he's not an asshole like the last one. He seems to genuinly care about her. And he's nice to me, and wants us all to hang out. He told her last night, "Ingrid, what the hell. She's like your best friend and I've only met the girl once." *smile* They've been circling around each other for what seems like forever, so I'm glad they're doing something about it. She's having dinner with his family on Sunday. Poor girl. She's nervous. I told her to bring cannolis. Always works on us Italians.

I'm off. I think I'm going to do my nails. The clear coat I have on has some kind of yellowish tint and it's bothering me. Wish me luck tonight, so I don't screw up and he thinks I was dropped on my head as a child.

1. Are you named after anyone? If so, explain. No, not at all. My mother just liked my name, and it slides off the tongue easily enough. Kerri Leigh. I like it. :)
2. Do you have your children's names picked out already? If so, is there any significance? Oh, of course. Don't most girls? For some reason I have more boy names picked out than girl names.
For boys: Jack (I know, shut up), Kincade (shortened to Cade), Francis (Frank, my grandfather's name)
For girls: Rose (I know, shut up; plus, it's a family name), Donnatella (shortened to Donna for my godmother who's passed)
3. If you were born a member of the opposite sex what would your name have been? Hmmm, not sure. I think my parents knew I was a girl. If I had come out with a darker complexion, I would've been named Jessica.
4. If you could re-name yourself what name would you pick and why? I don't think I would. I really like my name. It's different, a lil country. ;)
5. Are there any mispronunciations/typos that people do w/ your name constantly? Oh God, yes. I get Carrie a lot (you wouldn't think the pronunciation is different, but it does differ slightly). My name is never spelt right. It's always Keri, Kerrie, Kerry, Kerri Anne (no idea where ppl got that one from). Even Leigh is usually spelt Lee.


Oh, I have a question for you, allagainst. I know you've watched Walk the Line as many times as me, but did you ever pick up on a sort of undercurrent between June and Jerry Lee? They were all flirty in the car, and I know he was doing it to piss off Johnny, but I felt like there was something else there. But she wasn't really aware of Johnny there, and she was all girly and giggly, going "Jerry Lee, stop," but she didn't really sound like she wanted him to. And I believe he made a comment at one point about Elvis not being able to stop talking about her.

Oh, and while they were all drunk on stage, he was the first to say hello to her, and I think the two of them talked a bit more than Johnny and her. Hmm, I'll have to check that one. I just remember hearing Jerry's voice more.

Or am I just completely insane and looking for a reason to write new fic?

Ungh. Nauseous, achy, sooo tired. Well, more tired now than anything else. I took a long nap this afternoon, and when I woke up, I felt less sick, but more tired. Yeah, that works. I actually called in sick to work yesterday and today. I feel kind of bad. Yesterday I only missed a 4 hour shift. But today I was schedule for 9-5, and I know we're busy.

So, on to the fun stuff.

My cousin dressed as a pirate for his wedding. A pirate. Complete with sword. I swear, I kid you not! He even grew out his hair down to his shoulders and it was all greasy-lookin (how I imagine a pirate's hair would have looked), and he grew facial hair. He had the boots that went up to his mid-calf, tan loose pants, a white shirt with ruffles on the end and a bit at the neckline (which was low, and the kind you tied up), and a green velvet jacket. And, of course, the sword was stuck in his sash.

Classic. Tales of the rest of the wedding behind a cut for those interested or really, really boredCollapse )

So, now I'm just sitting around the house. I don't much have the energy to do anything else besides sit here and watch Kathy Griffin. I might go to the movies tonight with Ingrid and her older brother, but we'll see how that goes.

Oh, does anybody know who sings "Walk the Line" in the new Levi's commercial? It's really pretty.

Oh, and Rescue Me last night? Poor Tommy. He just can't win. And I can't wait to see what's gonna happen with Probie next week! Poor kid. And what's going on with Franco's kid? Does Susan Sarandon still have her?
