when does my weekend start?
iiit's picture time! coz i like pictures, and i'm in a sharing mood.
 my first comes to us from the giant eagle parking lot.
nice parking job considering how young the driver must be.
 i talk about dana-chan a lot and i figured it was time to reveal her face to all those of you who don't know her.
isn't she so adorable? oh yes, except for the fact that she has Drama. how much drama can one freaking 9 year old have? ...waaay too much... yesterday gave me a headache. she pulled her friend haley's hair, coz apparently she felt that haley wasn't paying attention when dana was trying to speak to her, and then it escalated into a soliloquy on Our Poor Maligned Haley, who apparently feels that when dana gets hurt everyone rushes to her side, but when haley gets hurt, no one cares. haley was just generally stressed yesterday coz her bike was stolen, but i swear, i've never seen such a disrepecful child. she kept interrupting her mother and yelling at her, and then meoldy -that's haley's mom- came over w/ this look of "oh my god, what is it this time?" and it was melody and my mother vs haley. haley is more afraid of my mother than she is of her own. melody's a little lax on the discipline, whereas my mother doesn't put up w/ any guff. from anybody.
 more on dana.
mainly this is for my fam. we all have some wierd thing about eating little candies in pairs, or all of the same color, or some wierd thing like that, and dana's always trying to pretend like she's immune to the disease of oddness. then she goes and seperates her skittles into colors.
 not the best sight in the world, considering the fact that gas here is $3.09/gal.
$3!!! and 9 cents!!! i live in freaking ohio, not california! i only work part-time, i don't have enough money to be spending $32 every time i wanna fill up my tank. which apparently i shouldn't be doing anyway, at least until the gulf has a chance to start producing gasoline again. man. i also don't have enough money to buy a hybrid. or a vespa.
 and now for the crowning goodness:
WACOM goodness. a pearl white graphire3 4x5 tablet. i spent last night on this:
and i'm positive there is more to come.
...so that's it, that's my slideshow. i feel a lot calmer than i did when i started this journal. i swear. the next person who can't be bothered to call me back when i NEED their POI is gonna get a spork up the nose.
