      GODDAMMIT!!!!!!!!!!! *growls* I am just so damn pissed off right now. Seeing as how my dad is being such an asshole, and apparently "can't stand to be around you and Scott anymore", we're getting our things that we left over there and bringing them here. But here's the catch...HE'S NOT LETTING US GET THEM!!!!!!!!! We can't go on a day that he's working, because he changed all the locks and change the code on the garage door. All over the fact that he didn't get his way with us by living over there. And the fact that I racked up a $400 cell phone bill smiley7.gif That's my bad. But some of that is his too! He came last Saturday, and took HIS (my) phone away. So yeah, I have no phone now. *sigh* Like I care anymore...No one really called me anyway. I'll get a job and get a new one. Someone suggest a good phone company for me. Anyway, so we can't get our stuff. Luckily, I don't have a lot over there...the only thing I want is a box of stuff that Andrew sent me a while ago...I want it back. My BROTHER on the other hand, being the true idiot that he is, moved ALL of his stuff over there, and when he came back here he only brought back 3 sets of clothes. So it's gonna take longer for him to move all his junk out. Fucking moron. Who the fuck knows if my dad's gonna let us get our stuff. He could be a jerk and say "it's in my house, I can keep it here." *growls* I'm so tired of this shit, I really am. I could just scream.

      My anger isn't being helped by the fact that I'm extremely tired...the tornado sirens went off at around 5 this morning, and I couldn't fall back total, I got 3 hours of sleep.

      Also this week, I broke up with Patrick. So I'm single again. Yay for me.

      On a better note, went to go see Kyle in High School Musical last night. Even though I don't like HSM, it was still good. Awesome job ^.^

      Happy fishy. Maybe the happy fishy will enlighten the mood in my journal...probably not.

    • I'm Sure You All Have Heard...Or Not

      For all the dumb people who don't know geography, Minneapolis is an hour from where I this does hit close to home. I wouldn't have posted this if it happened somewhere else.

      Snagged from
      MINNEAPOLIS - The entire span of an interstate bridge suddenly broke into huge sections and collapsed into the Mississippi River during evening bumper-to-bumper traffic Wednesday, sending vehicles, tons of concrete and twisted metal crashing into the water.

      Kristi Rollwagen, the deputy director of emergency preparedness for the city, said seven people had died in the incident.

      Police Chief Tim Dolan said all survivors who were on the bridge are now off. "We've accounted for all the construction workers except for one," he said.

      Hours after the collapse, Mayor R.T. Rybak said rescue workers had searched 50 cars.

      "Obviously this is a catastrophe of historic proportions," said Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

      The Interstate 35W bridge, a major link between Minneapolis and St. Paul, was in the midst of being repaired when it collapsed. Repairs involved guard rail replacement on the joints and concrete work, Pawlenty said.

      "There were two lanes of traffic, bumper to bumper, at the point of the collapse. Those cars did go into the river," said Minneapolis Police Lt. Amelia Huffman. "At this point there is nothing to suggest that this was anything other than a structural collapse."

      At least 58 individuals â€' 10 of them children â€' were injured, said officials from the Red Cross and the Hennepin County Medical Center. Six individuals being treated were in critical condition, Dr. Joseph Clinton said.

      NBC News reported that every Minneapolis ambulance had been requested to the scene.

      A freight train was passing under the bridge when it collapsed and was cut in two, WCCO television reported.

      Police set up flood lights so rescue officials can work throughout the night.

      The Minnesota Department of Transportation told local media that 200,000 cars a day use the bridge.

      The bridge, built in 1967, was last inspected in 2006 and had no major structural defects or deficits, Pawlenty said. "We were told the deck would have to be replaced in 2020."

      A burning truck and a school bus clung to one slanted slab after the collapse.

      The school bus reportedly had just crossed the bridge before the bridge crumpled into pieces, and local broadcast reports indicated the children, none of whom were injured, exited out the back door of the bus.

      Ritha Boyle, 22, who said she lives about 200 yards from the bridge, witnessed the collapse.

      "At first I just heard a big bang and I thought it was thunderstorms," Boyle told "Then I looked outside I noticed there was dust coming up from the bridge, and then I saw it go down and hit a train. I saw some cars trying to hit their brakes and stuff like that, and a whole bunch of cars went down."

      Ramon Houge of St. Paul was on his way home from work at Wells Fargo and was driving on the bridge when heard a rumbling noise, saw the ground collapse and cars go down, reported.

      “It didn’t seem like it was real,†he said. Traffic was bumper to bumper, he told the Star Tribune, adding that he saw kids on a bus with blood on their faces.

      Sarah Fahnhorst, who lives in an apartment a block away from the bridge, heard a huge thud and then “the entire building shook. It shook the ground,†she told the Star Tribune.

      A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security said there is no reason to think that terrorism was involved in the collapse, NBC News' Pete Williams reported.

      "We continue to monitor the situation. At this time, there's no indication of a nexus to terrorism," department spokesman Russ Knocke said in Washington. reported that many vehicles were trying to get to the 7:10 p.m. CT Twins game at the nearby Metrodome. Wednesday's game was continuing.

      The team postponed Thursday afternoon's game against the Kansas City Royals in response to the incident.

      The Minnesota Ballpark Authority also postponed a groundbreaking ceremony for a new stadium that was scheduled for Thursday evening.

      Gnarly stuff, dude. Wow. Luckily, this wasn't a terrorist attack, and not a lot of people were injured/died...still sucks that those people died/were injured though.

      Finally, after about a week of intense reading (I couldn't read it all in a day, and I didn't have the time to sit down and read it for hours and hours and hours), I have finally finished the 7th and final Harry Potter book. It's really, really weird that it's all over...I grew up with Harry Potter...I'm part of what you'd like to call the "Harry Potter Generation". The book really made me sad with all the people that died in it... Well, it's not ALL over, there's 2 movies left XD Can't wait for those!

      Okay, I'm done now...I think I'm gonna go lay down for a while. My knee is still killing me XD

    • Pain Don't Hurt? Oh Yes It Does!

      12 years ago



      Patrick Swayze lied in Roadhouse. Pain does hurt. Dumbass.

      I hate the sun. I really do. This weekend I went camping up in Minong, WI (unlike my friend Matt who thought I went camping in China XD)...I had fun. Except for the part where I got sunburn on my arms and a nasty burn on my knee from when I went tubing...and because of that stupid, extremely painful burn (it hurts so much to the point where I can't bend my knee straight to walk, you can't touch it, and anything you put on it like Neosporin or aloe gel will sting horribly), I couldn't go wakeboarding T_T I'm quite upset. Oh well. We're doing it again in a couple weeks. Hopefully not at where we camped...God, I got really sick last night, and every 5 minutes I was running to the bathroom...problem was, the bathroom was like 150 feet away from where our campsite was...damn did that ever blow. Now I know how the people in the olden days when they had outhouses felt XD I think what got me sick was that pizza we ate at this bar place that was in somebody's basement...yeah, a bar in a was quite dinky. And with all the people in there that were smoking, I nearly died of smoke inhalation. I don't think I wanna go back up there to go camping again...ick.

      Other than that...nothing much else is happening...I think I'm just gonna sit in this chair all day long, seeing as how I can't walk...owie...

    • Christmas In July XD

      12 years ago



      Best Christmas recipe ever:


      1 cup of water
      1 tsp. baking soda
      1 cup of sugar
      1 tsp. salt
      1 cup of brown sugar
      Lemon juice
      4 Large eggs
      1 bottle of Vodka
      2 cups of dried fruit

      Sample the vodka to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the vodka again. To be sure it is the highest quality, pour one level
      cup and drink. Repeat.

      Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the vodka is shtill OK. Try another cup .... just in case. Turn off the mixerer.

      Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick fruit off floor. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, pry it loose with a sdrewscriver.

      Ample the vodka to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Who giveshz a shit. Check the vodka.

      Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven.

      Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the vodka and kick the cat. Fall into bed.


      Obviously as you can tell it's more of a Christmasy thing, but what the hell. It's funny.

      I'm going camping this weekend...yeah. Woo. Be back on Monday.

      DAMN was that ever awesome last night!!! I had lots of fun! Except by the time KISS came onstage my feet were hurting really badly...oh well, KISS put on a spectacular show!! And I got 15 feet away from them in the photo line! It was awesome!!! I do feel kinda sick though I'll admit...I had a beer to drink at Jerry's co-worker's campsite, and then I had about half of this fruity slushie drink that had Southern Comfort in it...yeah. That was bad. Anyway, I got a bunch of pictures, but I'll only put up a few for you here. I got the rest of them up on my MySpace and on my Facebook, if you'd like to check them out. Please excuse the fact that some of them are a little blurry, but give me a break, I was shakey and I didn't have much time to get the pictures. BUT HEY, at least it's them.

      Me and my bro.

      Me, holding a homemade bass guitar shaped like an ax. We were at Jerry's co-worker's campsite (which was sweet by the way)...had quite an interesting name, as you can tell. And that banner to the left of me they had shipped off to Iraq and a bunch of soldiers from all over and took pictures with it. Quite awesome.

      Collective Soul playing onstage.

      The Rock Fest stage with 2 jumbo-trons on both sides. Collective Soul was currently onstage.

      Another shot of Collective Soul onstage.

      Me and my mom with this guy who looked like Slash.

      Another one of us with a guy looking like Gene Simmons. Too bad this came out so crappy.

      He was such a cute little kid ^.^ We hung out with him and his parents before KISS came onstage.

      A shot of the stage as I was leaving the photo line.

      As you can see, the last S in their sign was on the fritz XD That kinda sucked. But all the fireworks and shit they had made up for it.

      The guy who's supposed to be Ace Frehley (I don't know his name XD).

      Paul Stanley!

      Gene Simmons! Too bad this one didn't come out so good...he had his tongue sticking out!

      Paul Stanley ready to smash his guitar at the end of the 3rd encore, which was of course, Rock & Roll All Nite!

      I got a couple more in my images. Check them out!

      Yet again I have realized that I have not posted a decent journal in quite a while. So here's a decent one XD

      You all remember Jeff, Mr. Faggy Fruit of a Boyfriend, my mom's boyfriend? Well lately, he's been driving her absolutely insane with his constant whining and neediness. He gets upset when she can't come up on the weekend to visit him (like she was gonna go this weekend, but she can't and I'll tell you later why), and says that he needs to see her more than just twice a month. Dude, get over it! That's what you get when you meet someone who lives far away! You're lucky you even get to see her at all! Ugh, he just bugs me. Anyway, my mom has had enough, and she's driving up to Barron to meet him there, where they will break up. She'll give him all of his stuff back (which includes the boxes he bought for her for when she moved up there, which she's not, and the engagement/wedding ring he gave her), and that'll be the end of it. Thank God. That family is filled with a bunch of liars. Why? Well, the last time I went up there, me, his son Jefferey and his daughter Lauryn stood in the kitchen talking about them. Jefferey told me that he had anger problems, and that he's apparently had like 7 girlfriends and he's driven them all nuts to the point where they break up with him. I told my mom this, and later on she told Jeff what I had said. He said it was all a lie. She called Jefferey and Lauryn to verify, and they said "no such conversation took place.'' So everyone thought I was lying. Dammit, everyone always thinks I'm lying. It really pisses me off...well, like it matters, she's gonna break up with him anyway.

      As you all know, the 7th and final Harry Potter book comes out tomorrow!!! YAY! And I'm gonna go pick up my copy tomorrow at Borders! Weeeeeeee! I won't be able to sit at home and read it all day though, there's gonna be lots of fun stuff to do tomorrow. First of all, tomorrow at Chilson Chrysler-Dodge in Chippewa Falls, this car will be there:
      The Challenger concept, weeeeeee! And I'm gonna go see it! Possibly sit in it! Feel like a god! It's only here for today and tomorrow, then it'll be gone. I'm going tomorrow! I'll be sure to get pictures. Because seriously, like I'm ever gonna see that car again, and possibly own one of my own later on in life.

      Then, later on tomorrow, my mom, me, and Jerry are gonna go to Rock Fest to go see these guys in concert:
      Granted, yes, only 2 original members will be there (Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons), but hey, those two are the ones who make up KISS. I don't know who the other two guys are...but who cares. They'll all have on the original makeup and costumes and everything, so like you'll be able to tell. You know what I'm wondering...I'm wondering if they'll have to cut down their pyrotechnics and fireworks because they wouldn't have that big of a don't really think they would...I mean come on, it's not a KISS concert unless they've got fireworks and explosions. I'll be sure to get some pictures of that too, because this is only 1 of 3 shows they're playing this year, and God knows if I'll ever see them again. I'll try to get's gonna be a madhouse trying to find a good spot. But then again, I think most of the crowd is gonna be at Country Jam, where they have Bon Jovi. Seriously, does anyone know who else is playing at Country Jam? All I've heard is BON JOVI! BON JOVI! Eh, who cares. I hate Country Jam anyway.

      I BETTER be able to go to Sean's graduation party on the 28th...if not, I will be terribly upset. You see, my dad's not too sure he can drive me down to where Sean lives (Plymouth, WI), because he used up a lot of his money for a plane ticket to Texas, because my Auntie Susan died last Saturday. He should be home today. And he doesn't know if he'll have the gas money to drive me there. Oh come on, you can drive there on a half a tank of gas. I really, really wanna go...if I don't I'll be extremely upset! I'm buying/making his birthday/graduation presents today!! This really makes me wish I had a car and a job...that way I wouldn't be worrying about this...*sigh* If I don't go, me, my mom, Jerry, and my siblings (minus Scott because he moved to my dad's) are gonna go camping on the St. Croix. And we're gonna go boating!! Hopefully, for all you people that know, under the bridge that you cross to get into Minnesota when you're going to the Twin Cities! FUN! So if I don't go, it's not like I'll be totally out of luck...but I still wanna go to Sean's grad party!

      Well, I'm gonna head off and go play with the puppies. Oh my God you should see them now! They're so big!!! I'll post pictures soon!!
