New Fabric

So I have been sewing a lot lately. Nothing fancy. I have finished up a couple of quilt tops. I even finished and quilted my zigzag blanket.

My scraps are all almost gone. I am finishing up the last of my scraps. I think there will be enough for a small full size blanket.

I needed new fabric. I bought some! I love it mucho. I want to buy more. I love getting new fabric. It's one of my favorite games!

So I have had acne for a good 10 years. My mom told me to just wash my face better and it would go away. It worked that was for the rest of the kids... Not so much for me.

I have tried every type of soap. I have tried creams. I have tried just using really hot water. I have changed the makeup I use. I stopped using make up all together for a while.

My awesome acne feels like it will never go away. It hurts. My face is sore and tender all the time. I am angry about it right now. This is the face that Spencer will see last. He won't get to see a me. He gets to see this. I feel gross.

My awesomeness

I finished my zigzag blanket top. I thought it turned out kind of cool. No bad for a first try. It's not great but it's not bad.

Tuesday Story - Life of a dispatcher

I have decided to post a Tuesday Story today. I’ve not done that in a long time. I haven’t really had anything to post about. Today I do.

It is our inbound week at work. That means that we have so much more time to talk. Jeremy is a goof ball. I want to start the story with that.

I had a Spanish inbound so Jeremy Snow took the call for me. He learned Spanish on his mission. The lady was really grumpy and was swearing at him. At the end of the call he hid under his desk in the fetal position saying “I can’t take the pressure!” Seriously, it was pretty much the funniest thing ever. Jeremy is a huge goof ball anyway. That just took the cake.

I know that it doesn’t sound very funny but trust me, it was.

Another funny Story...

*** Name was changed***

The man's alarm went off. I call him.

Me: good afternoon. This is Gina with Vivint. My I have your full name and password please?
Mr. Smith: No

*** Mr Smith hung up***

That is when I Dispatched the police on him and his Grandkids because I wanted them to me safe... Or freaked out... Whatever.

I will leave you with Ryan juggling and Jeremy hiding under his desk. Hahaha

Memory Monday... Yeah

So it’s Monday. That means it’s Memory Monday! I’ve decided to start blogging again. It’s been a while. So, to get back into the swing of things I have decided to write about how I got my blog.

Dedra was living in Kansas at the time. She wanted to do something on her blog so we went to the Funeral Home to pilfer internet. :) After a rousing game of Hide and Seek in the casket room we got down to business!

Dedra posted things on her blog. She told me all the cool kids had blogs and that I should join the club. After a minute or two of me wanting to be lame I decided to join the cool kid club.

“Hold on, Dream away. You’re my Sweet Charade.” Are lyrics to a Goo Goo Dolls song. That is where my blog title came from.

Dedra helped me set things up. It was very nice of her. She’s didn’t stink that day.

Thus began my on again off again relationship with my blog. There have been funny stories, pointless posts and lots of typos. All in all it has been an interesting adventure. I am glad we created said blog.

I want you to know that I just wasted 3 minutes of your time by you reading this. Thank you for those 3 minutes.

August 31, 2012

5 minute Ramble!

It is 10:30am

This is what my work day has been thus far

· Pedro was hungry so he ate my fruit snacks and pretzels
· I had chocolate milk for breakfast
· Someone decided that they were going to petition the company to change the color on the logo because they don’t like Orange. haha
· We decided that Peggy is a terrible name.
· I found out that Norm is scared to talk to me about Spencer because I am very blunt about things. (I call a spade a spade. They are black and look like shovels.)
· People like to tease me because I ware Band-Aids on my pinkys. It helps me remember not to use them when I type. No, I do not use my pinkys when I type. They’re crooked and it hurts to type as much as I do with them.
· Pedro and I planned a road trip to Washington. I don’t know if it will actually happen.
· Pedro and I also made paper airplanes. HAHA
This is what we have been up to for the last 2 ½ hours. You would think that with this being out High week that we could be busy. We are busy. There have been a lot of people that don’t know how to work their systems. Some of them should be sent out to sea to die. Wow, I should talk nice…
It’s just another day at VIVINT. :)
Jadyn – One of the boss ladies, had candy. She walked around with this huge bag of chocolate saying it was the “party bag” It was a party. I need to learn to not eat junk. It gives me heartburn to eat sweets. You would think that that would stop me from eating it. Nope.
Speaking of sweets. Kyle wants me to come home for a doughnut run before he leaves for basic. I want to so bad! I want to drive 15 hours home, get on the hour long boat ride, walk the 2.5 miles, have Kyle buy me a doughnut and then come home. That would make me so happy. I love when we go on doughnut runs. I told him he should come down here and we could go get a doughnut at a shop here. We decided it wouldn’t be the same. Our date spot is Top Pot. I would have to go home for that.
I got a $0.50 raise. That was a good thing.
We had several call outs at work today. Shocker. Payday, nice weather, and everyone is magically sick. I guess being sick of work is a real thing. I can’t be mad at them. I was tempted to call out this morning too. I wanted to call out just because I can’t sleep at night. I wake up every hour or so all night.
There is a girl at work who I will call Nire. She bugs me mucho. She also feels the need to sit with me. I can tell she needs good friends. I just don’t want to be that friend. She is clingy. She also likes to talk about her sex life. I don’t care to hear about it. I don’t talk to her about my boyfriend. I wish she wouldn’t talk to me about hers. Sometimes I want to tell her to “SHUIT UP!” I wont though.

I saw Spencer for a bit this evening. I like him. He's cute.

That was my day...
