Glamourkin of the Day: Within these walls, wonder

I have a lot of things to accomplish today. Tomorrow I'm going over to my mother's to do stuff for her birthday so that takes most of the day out for getting things accomplished.

List:


  • Make cheese bread
  • Laundry
  • Trash
  • Make Oreo cheesecake bars
  • Make calzone dough
  • and then calzones
  • Dishes
  • Target
  • Post office
  • Bank



There's still snow on the ground and some ice on the roads, which means I need to do all the running around outside before night falls, the sun goes away and temperature plummet. I swear that I need to move somewhere warmer or somewhere with better public transportation pronto. I don't mind the cold, but I hate driving in the snow/ice/slush crap.

My weekend is shorter than usual. Or, well, I guess I should say that I got as many days off as normal it's just that I didn't take them all together. I swapped my Saturday for a Tuesday off so that a co-worker could attend a friend's wedding. I am a nice person underneath it all.

A lot has happened that really isn't anything at all.

I had a power surge that killed my cable modem (swapped at work), NIC (replaced), crippled the TV (gone for repairs), blew the HDMI port on the cable box (to be swapped once I get the TV back so I can finish recording things from the DVR that are irreplaceable) and killed the Wii (currently trying to decide whether to pay the $75 for repairs or save the $200 for a new black one.) I've also replaced (almost, one to go) my surge protectors. It's been a bit expensive because other than the devices I can swap through work and the TV, nothing covers anything. My renter's insurance has a $500 deductible, and I have to somehow prove that these things were damaged by lighting. Um. Unless there are giant scorch marks on things (sadly absent) it's very hard to diagnose lightning or power surges. As such I have basically rolled my eyes at that and given up the ghost.

So money is a little tighter right now than I like thanks to having to replace things. Not to mention that I tend to overspend on Mother's Day and Father's Day.

Fortunately there's one more back tax check to come in from Kentucky that should help me pay off credit cards and still stash a little away for my trip to North Carolina this October. I'm going to go see [livejournal.com profile] kcauac!

This past Monday I had something weird happen health-wise. I had a strange sensation in my throat most of the day. It was almost as though there was a big lump or my throat was closing up from the inside. It did not hamper my breathing or swallowing, but it was annoying and basically driving me crazy. I was distracted through work and there were times when I seriously had to restrain myself from clawing at my throat to try and make it let go. It would get better when I ate or when I drank hot liquids. Fortunately I drink a lot of hot tea at work because the place is kept so frigid I wear my jacket inside. It lasted pretty much all day long. When I got home I did a little research on the internet, and it actually sounds like it might have been a cricopharyngeal spasm. Based on what I found, I took half a muscle relaxer with some hot tea, which both helped, and then knocked out since I didn't have to work the next day. It did help. Just another sign I need to stop stressing myself out, I guess.

So.

Skill List

According to the documentation that was sent to me (assuming I'm reading it correctly) they're going to be interviewing me for two possible jobs tomorrow. They're close to the same thing but not exactly.

Required Skills:


  • good analytical skills--I'd like to think I do, but I'm not sure
  • good research skills--I'm all over this one
  • good decision making skills--This one kinda concerns me
  • good communication skills, including active listening in order to ensure understanding--I think I'm pretty good at this
  • technologically savvy--I'm something of a computer geek
  • share and use knowledge to improve business results--Maybe?
  • good at organizing and managing multiple projects and/or priorities--I'm like the queen of multitasking
  • financially minded--What does that mean?
  • interpersonal skills--I have a number of people who call Blueriver who want to talk to me. I have been told that I'm very good and professional on the phone, and I know Craig has gotten compliments regarding my performance because he's told me so. Still I doubt.
  • Excel--Not so much. I've used it before, but I barely know what makes the damn thing tick.
  • problem solving skills--Let's put it this way: I can't solve my problems, but I can probably help you solve yours.



As a side note, Panic! at the Disco rocks. I'm so glad I went ahead and bought the CD.

Well, I'm proud of myself.


  • tires fixed
  • plate renewal done online
  • laundry
  • dishes
  • cake (because I can, damnit!) postponed because I stopped wanting cake



ETA: Figuring out how to make the blogging tool for Windows Media Player work so my Semagic client will let me detect music. I downloaded and installed the plugin, but it does not show up in my Background options so I cannot turn it on so Semagic thinks that I don't have it in the first place. Grr. Apparently I had installed an old blogging plugin. Got the right one and now it works. I rule!
