October 31st

Happy Halloween! I went to work and then I napped. And now I am tired. Am I super lame? I was gonna watch a scary movie buuut I think I'd rather sleep. Tomorrow is my first day off in what feels like forever. I'm so ready.

October 29th

Ahh, I did indeed mess with my sleep schedule. I could sure go for some sleep right now, in fact, except I'm about to go to work. Not too much to report from today - honestly, I just watched YouTube and ate leftover Chinese food. Ahh, Sundays.

October 28th

Sometimes you finally get good quality sleep...after you get home from work. Bah. I felt sick all morning, felt sick at work, got home, had some cereal and slept. This was no nap. This was real sleep. So, you know, good for my sleep schedule and all that. Work was good though, even though it was crazy busy.

I walked such a wonderful dog today! He was a super fluffy white Samoyed and I love him.

I also went to one of those in-mall "oriental massage" places. Kinda feel like I got beat up by a Chinese man but my feet feel pretty good at least.

Lots of work in the next four days! Whoop!

October 26th

I successfully slept all night, and then all day! I mean, pretty much. I also had not one, not two, but three work-related dreams. All of them were weird and stressful. And now I am wanting some dinner. It's gonna be a bean burrito. And I'm really excited.

This is the story of a really uneventful Thursday. I mean...at least I left the house to check my mail. On the other hand, I have a terrible head/neck ache. I need an ice pack.

October 25th

Today wasn't actually too bad. I am very ready for two days off in a row. It's like having a weekend! Except my actual weekend will be me working a lot! Ah, well. I think it should be just fine.

October 24th

Okay, time for dinner! Or maybe it's lunch...I truly did sleep all day. I've just been exhausted from the sudden shift in work hours. And tomorrow is going to be another long day, as is Sunday night. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the hours. And obviously I love this job so going to work isn't some terrible thing. It's more that I went from 15 hours a week to 15 hours in two days and my brain (and my sore feet) are still adjusting. Cheers to the holiday season!

I am so glad I have tomorrow off. I had a long weekend. And Wednesday is another really long shift. My feet are hurting! And it's so rainy!

...The Kat Von D Saint and Sinner palette is so beautiful. I actually go to see it in person today and I am in love.

All right friends, it's time to...go to work! Oh yes! Who's excited to work until midnight? Not me! But I'm gonna do it! And hopefully it's easy stuff tonight!

October 21st

Biting into things with my front teeth is so weird. I had to avoid it for over a month and I feel like I've totally forgotten that it's an okay and normal things to do. I was literally having a mini Rice Crispy bar and was tearing off pieces before it clicked that I could just...put it in my mouth and bite off a piece. It's funny how quickly habits form.

Anyway, I am completely exhausted. Work was loooong and it's gonna be long tomorrow too. But hey, the good thing about working a ton during the holiday season is you end up with a little extra money. And I'm always okay with that.

Oh my god you guys, I got Cas a little kitty bed hut thing and he loves it. He's sleeping in it. It is the most precious thing! And he likes his new scratching post and his new crinkle tube too! I just want to have a house full of things for him so he is happy and cute all the time.

October 19th

I have new teefies! I love having new teeth! They're so smooth! And they're not gonna pop off on me! And I'm so happy! And I get my whitening trays in just a few weeks! Yaaaay!

October 18th

I didn't sleep super well last night and then I didn't feel super well, but I was okay and work was okay and now I'm just chilling. Dentist tomorrow! Pretty teeth! And then lots and lots of work. It's that time of the year.

Why did I buy my plane ticket for MAGFest early this year? It's nonrefundable and MAGFest is a literal dumpster fire. Despite the fact that I was in the first group to preregistered for the convention - also nonrefundable - not only did the convention hotel sell out but so did literally every other hotel in the area. Because they just randomized the booking system. And then even people who got through to make reservations go screwed. Cards got charged for obscene amounts instead of the deposit. Websites were crashing. People were getting directed to two different sites.

Maybe I'll just go on vacation during that time. I'll go to Washington D.C., I already have the damn plane ticket.

Yessss new hair. It's more of a dirty blonde now. I'm into it!

Aaand I'm sleepy. Is it bedtime now?

October 15th

I went down to visit my mom and great aunt today! My sister was there visiting too! So it was a nice family day. I am very sleepy. And I get my hair done tomorrow! Whee!

October 14th

Today was a much better day! I got my tooth fixed, I stopped by a cat adoption shelter and played with cats, I hung out with Brad...good stuff. Now I'm here with my own cat and I'm ready for some snuggles.

October 13th

If you're wondering how my day went, just know that my temporary crown popped off and my dentist's office is closed all weekend. It hurts a lot. It also looks very freaky. Happy Friday the 13th y'all!

Testing another Imaginary Authors scent today, Memoirs of a Trespasser. I tested this one probably a year or so ago and liked it, and I still like it, but I don't feel like I need it or anything. It's quite similar to Diptyque's Eau Duelle, which I do own. Vanilla woody goodness. Definitely good for fall and winter!

Today I did a whole lot of sleeping. Tomorrow I've got work and I'm not sure how busy it's going to be. It's always hard to tell around this time of year. Sure, kids are in school, but it's Halloween-Christmas season which means it's just getting busier and busier. Once November comes I'm sure it'll get a little crazy.

So, I would like a Moana collection of Ufufy please. How cute would Pua and Heihei be? Even Tamatoa and the Kakamora would be cool. I wonder what they'd smell like. I would guess something like plumeria/frangipani which would be amazing. Disney, please make this collection!

I received my generous sample collection from the Imaginary Authors team this week, so I've been doing some testing. So far, I've enjoyed two of the three that I've worn. In lieu of that...let's do a review, shall we?

Violet Disguise by Imaginary Authors
Notes: Plum, violet, dried fruits, balsam, amber

I went into testing this with a word from Josh Meyer (the creator) himself, who told me that a.) the scent was more plum than violet and b.) it had the same dusty feeling as Yesterday Haze, which I had mentioned to him that I enjoy.
I agree on all counts. This is rich, dark fruits that have been dried and left in an old wooden chest. If you're familiar with the depth of the fruit notes in Slumberhouse's Kiste, that's how these fruits felt to me. Now, I normally don't go near plum-heavy scents nor am I typically keen on dried fruit scents. However, the "dusty" accord absolutely makes this great. It takes away the cloying feeling, it tempers the sweetness to a more reasonable level, and it brings a cozy feeling, like antique wood. As for the violet, I really don't get any sort of typical violet smell form this. Perhaps the inherent powdery-ness of violet lends itself to the dustiness of this scent, but I get no real violet. And I actually quite like that.
I can absolutely see this being an amazing fall of winter fragrance. I own Yesterday Haze and find them similar enough that I don't necessarily need both, but I will be happy to use my sample of Violet Disguise again.
Like all Imaginary Authors scents, this is a try-before-you-buy kind of scents. It's hard to grasp the scent from looking at the notes alone. All in all, I'm pleasantly surprised with this one.

You know when you go into the dentist after wearing your temporary veneers for a month and then find out that one of your permanent ones has a tiny crack in it so they can't place them? Yeah, that's good stuff. I go back next week though. I'm so ready for this dental ordeal to be over. I've spent so many hours there. (Though many of those hours I was sedated so I don't necessarily remember them.) But I've had to take time off from work, reconfigure my sleep schedule, eat with caution...for many months now. I literally don't even know what all I've had done because I was sedated for half the time. I'm getting closer to having an awesome smile though, so I'm super excited.

I am frustrated. I'm frustrated with my medication, my financial situation, my phone, my pet insurance, just...so many things. It's really overwhelming. But I did get to hold a ferret today.

October 8th

What a rainy day! And on top of that, work was crazy busy. Like, nonstop people for a good three hours straight. It's not even the holiday rush yet, who are these people?

I did hella laundry last night. I was doing laundry til after midnight. And it feels so good to have clean clothes, let me tell you. But amidst all of this laundry, I somehow forgot to wash my bras. I did not wash a single bra. Well, I washed two sports bras. But I mean real bras. How could I do this?

Cas has been extra cute and fluffy and cuddly today, so I'm going to take advantage of that by giving him some good snuggles before (or as) I fall asleep.

Saturday, October 7, 2017

October 7th

Ahh, just waiting for my laundry to be done. In my mind I started it earlier than I did...but it's actually going to be done close to 11:00 PM. Oh well. At least I'm getting it done.

My iPhone has been an absolute wreck since the newest update. It's constantly freezing, apps are crashing, everything is lagging, speakerphone doesn't work half the time...it's ridiculous. Not sure what to do.

I'm working 3:00 PM - close tomorrow, which will be a change of pace for me. I can't even remember the last time I closed. At least it's a Sunday so closing is much earlier than it is on a weekday!

As a treat from my dad, I got a massage/body scrub treatment today. Unfortunately, it was really subpar. Fortunately, the spa I go to is amazing and they were able to help me out. I was originally scheduled with my main massage therapist but it had to get switched to someone else...who was new and not good and VERY talkative. Like, I’m trying to relax here. I don’t need to hear about your divorce and your five kids. The staff was so helpful though so I’ll be able to rebook with my regular therapist at no charge. I mean...at least I smell kinda good?

I got to walk my buddy Ace again tonight! He was so good, as usual. Sometimes I can't even believe how small and fluffy he is.

I really want to meet Keyboard Cat someday.

October 4th

I am so sleepy tonight! I am also in need of a massage. I have so much tension in my shoulders!

Work was good today, but I'm off until Sunday. What do I do? I gotta walk some nice doggos!

October 3rd

I just got home from a walk with my buddy Ace! We had a bit of a longer walk tonight just for fun, and because I just love hanging out with him. He's like a slow little puff cloud. Now it's time for pizza!

When "the largest mass shooting in recent history" happens every year or two, something really needs to change. Unbelievable. It's just so fucking sad. I don't even know what to do.

October 1st

Happy first day of Halloween! I still have some cleaning yet to do tonight. Cas is all rolled up like a cinnamon bun. It's that autumn time of year!
