I've got the blues...

Or maybe I'm just really bored. I'm not really sure. I'm kinda just in a funk. I'm not in the mood to watch a movie, (Wait, what? This is ME we're talking about here!) so I'm just sitting here on the couch wondering what to do.



I got the invitation to my friends' wedding at the end of the month, and I'm trying to figure out what I want to do. I'm planning on going up there (Santa Barbara) on Friday, doing the Welcome Barbecue thing they have planned, and then the wedding & reception on Saturday, then late Saturday/ early Sunday, driving back. I only say I'm going to do that because I promised Derrek that I'd drive him to the airport so he can fly back to Vermont. He's silly like that. The problem is, he's got something like an 8am flight, so we either have to leave the night before, likely during the reception, or dance the night away and leave at around 4am or so. I can do it either way as long as there's a Starbucks somewhere. I will need caffeine at some point, and I don't want to deal with 7/11 coffee. Blech.



So by now you should know about the whole ordeal with Paris Hilton. She had to go to jail for driving with a suspended license after getting a DUI. She deserved it. Then she got out of jail after something like 5 days to go to house arrest which was counter to the original judge's ruling, i.e. not allowed, and of course now she's back in jail. I'm loving this. All of it. As I have said before, she's a useless piece of fluff. She may be a smart girl, but she completely wastes it. She could probably be attractive if she gained a little weight so she wasn't 90 pounds. The problem is that she expects all this special treatment, and then she gets it, and she's completely spoiled. She was apparently dragged out of the courtroom as she was being thrown back in jail, screaming for her mommy. I have absolutely no pity for her. If I tried to pull any of the crap she's done, my parents would probably disown me and help the authorities lock me up. DUI? I'm not that stupid in the first place. I know I've got a crazy low tolerance for alcohol, that's why I don't drink. But driving on a suspended license? Really? There's no way she didn't know when it was supposed to be reinstated. And besides, this is Paris Hilton we're talking about: hire a frickin' driver!!!! She tried to use the stupidest defense in the book, "I didn't know..." and then she tried to buy a Get out of Jail Free card. Listen honey, they just don't exist. Not in real life. Not even in my version of Monopoly (I lost them all, I was collecting them to try to use in real life). So, suck it up, deal with the fact that you have serve your time (all 45 days instead of a shortened sentence), and Grow Up!!!



Now that I've ranted a bit about how much I really don't like her and everything Paris Hilton stands for, I can actually talk with a level head about what's going on. Supposedly, and I don't know how true any of this is, she's serving a much harsher sentence than is really necessary. Honestly, I'm not sure where the law actually falls on jail time for what she actually did, but I am aware that she is being made an example out of. She's a huge public figure, for God only knows what reason, the only credits she has to her name are a bad horror movie, a reality TV series and a sex tape. But nearly everyone has that stuff anymore. I'm thinking of getting dirty myself and making a bad horror movie. (You though I was going to say sex tape didn't you? Not my style.) The only other reason she's famous is because she's an heiress and because she's caused so much gossip and controversy ever since that sex tape came out.



I can't talk about this anymore. It's pissing me off, however, in other exciting news, I think I'm learning to touch-type. I type about 40 wpm, but I still look at the keys when I type. But if I just stop looking and let myself stop thinking about it, I can actually almost type with me eyes closed. (I just did that sentence, but I had to edit the Y's because I had put in U's accidentally. Oops! but not bad, eh?)



But I'm so neurotic about it all that I just have to stop thinking about it....



I had a training session for work today. I had to go to the learning center and learn how to be a shift supervisor. I already know a lot of it, so this was really just a refresher course, but it's still required, and the people there were kinda cool. I'm excited about this promotion. As you can tell...




Question of the Day: How did you learn to type?
