12:55 pm: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year & Glad we all survived the Mayan Apocalypse too!
   So, here it is the end of another year. Is it me or do they seem to be going by really fast? Just received notice of someone posting who hadn't since the end of 2011. Someone who I had wondered about. 
   So, as we are about to start a new year and one that ends with what is a supersticious number for me, I thought since I was on here, I would update a little. I realize that I don't spend anytime on my journals anymore. Sometimes I try to log in somewhere and the whole site will have just disappeared. 
   I turned 53 this year. Back in the day when I was small I thought my Grandfather was ancient and here now I am his age. Too Weird!
   I have been unemployed for almost 6 months. I had a Temp job for a month here in December and that has been all. Can't even seem to get any callbacks and when I do it doesn't pan out.  So money's tight but I am managing so far.  It will soon be time to get worried!  :)  Still, I and my dog Squeegy are managing and we have family and friends on the internet that put up with a lot of not hearing from me. Sorry about that. 
 I think that when you are younger you have more to say because you are more intrespective and when you get older you stop trying to figure so much out. Also, given my status, I don't really have a lot to tell personally and the fact is the web has become a slightly intolerant place to share your political and religious views and as I am a very Far Left Liberal and atheist that stuff just doesn't interest me in getting into any ... ?Flame Wars? or is that too out of date?  :)
  Anyway, 
      To anyone who reads this, I just want to say that I think about all of you often and I'm sorry that I don't show up more and participate. 
     Love and Merry Christmas to all and may everyone have a Splendid and Fantastic New Year!!!
                                                       Michelle

06:54 am: Stuff and Nothing
Haven't posted here for over a year. Need to keep it. I may have more time in a month to do journaling. I think for most ppl the journaling thing may have went the way of the dodo or you know ... facebook & twitter. how times do change. I started using the computer & journaling when I was laid off. may be doing that again. we will see. it is worrying as I do not know if I will have enough money to survive. Shit happens. just don't like it. Thanks for reading this if anyone is out there. buh bye

So, not sure when I last posted. I tried Semagic but my user names confuse it. :)
 What's happening. Well, lets see.
 I am working. I am on the internet. I spent a lot of time in September watching old archives of 9/11. I found this youtube video of a woman in the crater of the hole the 1st plane made in the 1st tower. It fascinated me & disturbed me to see her standing in the rubble waving. It brought perspective to the size of what happened. You can really see how huge that gaping hole really was. In watching the videos of the news coverage you can't really get a perspective on it and I never saw the Towers in person. I almost wonder if I didn't get a little obsessed.
  Me and my dog Squeegy are getting along fine. She is spoiled. I love her to pieces!
  Spend time with family. Live alone now. This last year and a half have been the 1st time I've done that in over 20 years and I find I really enjoy it.
  So nothing changes and everything changes.

Love to all who chance upon here!

03:44 pm: Another Squeegy photo


April 9th, 2011

03:20 pm: Squeegy
So, since I lost my dog Snickers on the 2nd of Feb 2011 I hadn't been exercising at all. So 2 weeks ago Friday we were near the Humane Society taking a break and I kept seeing all these dogs being exercised and I just decided to get another dog. Her name is now Squeegy and she is a small Pomeranian and we are finally getting to know each other. She is not the fluffy kind like you see but she looks like a little fox and she is so tiny and cute!

12:13 pm: Super Stuff & Such

12:07 pm - Choices
Back in the day, when I first started using a computer, ok ancient history! ha. Anyway, I used placeholders for images because I had dialup. And anybody w/dialup knows that large images & lots of flash or java cause a dialup to speed to a grinding downloading halt. So when I look at my friends pg I'm like, 'Why can't I see the pictures and what are those weird little boxes for in ppls entries and u know what a pain it is to find your way around DeadJournal if you don't know or don't remember the DeadJournalSpeak. But I have DSL now so I finally found where I wanted or needed to go & get that fixed. So now I can see all the nice pictures & stuff ppl post. Yay! And, Always remember to save if you want to go to 'rich text' as your damn entry will disappear! gotta love the back button! :) and why doesn't DeadJournal have the smileys or mood guys, Eh? 
  Found it!
 Gotta remember how this all works! I've forgotten all I knew!

11:11 am - Nothing Much
Spring comes tomorrow. Tonight is the Super Moon. Still getting
use to not having anybody but myself to look after, although there
are still the sisters and nieces and nephews and such. I got
my income tax money & other and it is now all gone. Spent it all
too too fast. Such is me & money & life. So much in my head, so
little patience to get it out.
Don't know. Don't get it.
Still, I am in a realatively good place right now. Boy the cynic just can't quite let go.
Well, I'm off now. I must try to check in more. I have lost touch with so many ppl that I knew on the web. Is that how it goes. Just lose touch & move on. Maybe. Maybe I am just that sort of transient sort of person.
Love to All!

Oh & yes. I fear it may be true. I may be a GLEEK! Oh My!

10:46 pm - still here
So, DeadJournal is still here and so am I. I haven't been blogging in over a year. I lost the interest to do it I guess. LostJournal seems to be gone & so too LiveLogCity. I just don't get it about LostJournal tho. What did I miss?  I guess I should really check more often, eh? Just checking in so that I know this is still here.

10:26 pm: Time and All that cool stuff
Posted in LiveJournal first:

So I came here just to check. Most of the time anymore I'm on Twitter or playing games on my desktop.
 Its been 1 year 3 days since I last posted here. Mama had just died.  This year has been a starting of crap. My dog, who was 14 years old had to be put to sleep Feb 2, 2011. His name was Snickers.
 Its strange how I still check to make sure I won't step on him as I get out of bed. Or how I still miss him the most at 10 at night cuz that was our last walk before bed. Or how I look for him to be begging when I fix something to eat.  I think about Mama practically everyday. Just random stuff. 
 Anyway, here I am. Its funny how the whole blogging thing just ... went away for me.
Well, that's about it. I wish everybody is well and Spring can't come soon enough. 2011 ... another year!

05:39 pm: Cash For Clunkers


CASH  FOR CLUNKERS..........I QUALIFY
IF MY BODY WERE A CAR...

If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish, and my paint job is getting a little dull. But that's not the worst of it.
My headlights are out of focus, and it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose
veins. It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it --

Almost every time I sneeze, cough or laugh, either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires.

CASH FOR CLUNKERS..........I QUALIFY - How about You?

08:54 pm: Bored!
Journaling. Kinda let it go for a long while. Only seem to want to post intermittently.
Lets see, how far back shall I go?Got laid off Jan, '08. Got rehired October, '08. Since then I can't seem to balance my budget and am 2 months behind on all my bills all the time. I seem to spend all my money on food. I guess that might mean I'm more depressed than usual. Seems like I just can't get a handle on my finances. F**ked up that is, ... I am?
 I have dsl which is great or bad depending on how you view it. I spent much more time with my journals when I had dialup because that was easier to do. Now with dls I can watch youtube and vids on news sites.
  I moved last July and now it is a year in this cottage ... cottage literally, how cool.
  My mom spent three years no going to the doctor or taking medication and her diabetes and high blood pressure caught up with her last month and she had a mild stroke. This time she was aware of what was happening and it frightened her. She is now on meds and now that her mind is clearer she is bored. Its kind funny how she is now more aware. Its was scarier this time though. She really did have a bad episode.
  Me, I just move along as always. Doing nothing and moving on nowhere. I get most of my news and entertainment off the web now and don't spend as much time watching tv as I used to.
  I don't really have much to say. I think of a lot of stuff but ...
  Well, that's it for now. Life is as effed up as ever and I wish for more ... but what?

05:09 pm: What in the Hell is it ...


So, I'm going around updating my journals today while I feel like it. It turns out that you can't update GJ or leave comments anymore, but what you can do is edit your entries. Tricky, eh. so technically you can update by editing old entries and just dating them in the text of the update. woo hoo.
Anyway, nothing much doing here. its hot, Im sick and the punctuation is failing as is capitalization. I'm getting lazy and bored.
I don't really have anything to say. really. nothing. out of work, out of money, out of sorts, but ...
I'm OK. so hello IJ peoples!!! :}
Still around, lurking. :]

Happy New Year to everybody at IJ.
When I first found this place, it was small, quiet, quirky, and an undiscovered corner of the internet. My, what a year makes, EH! I have enjoyed IJ more than just about any Journal I've had. The friends I have made here have been wonderful. I wish everyone on IJ a prosperous, healthy, joyful, safe and productive 2008 ! ! ! I cannot put into words how much this place has meant to me this year or how much all of my friends here have meant to me!
