Random Shit

Thanks for the Merry Christmases and Happy Birthdays.

I wish I could say things are better.

But life still sucks!

Yes, that's me. Courtesy of the boyfriend. And it's exactly how I feel lately. Like a floating head in a red sea of doom. I'm reeeeally hoping things are going to be better for me in the new year. But I've said that twice already on this blog the past two new years, and it's become a bit of a joke statement.

Har, har.

Things will get better on this blog, at least. So that's good news, right? I actually have a list of posts just waiting to be created. The topics are endless, my time is not. Blurg.

I have a new pet. It is my first pet since Moses, the canary I had to eventually give to my mother.

Moses sang so fucking loud, it was getting out of control. Like, I would be driving into the parking lot of the apartment complex and I could hear him wailing away. And he loved to compete with Rian's guitar playing, which didn't go over well. We started putting Moses in the closet to shut him up, but that didn't work either. So my mom took him in.

Anyway, this new pet doesn't make a peep!

My friend and I share joint custody over this betta fish, Mr. Sakana. Craig had him for the summer and fall months. Now it's my shift.

Like most children from broken homes, Mr. Sakana is stressed out and frustrated by the change. He swims around furiously, glaring at me and ignoring his new step-father, Rian. But that's life. We can't choose our family.

I wish I had more exciting news to share. Or, at least something way cooler than bragging about a fish.

Oh well.

I hope you're having a good week!

Gorgeous fish, is that even weird to say that?!

Lady, if I could you give you a hug right now, I would. Things are going to get better but the first thing you gotta do is change your attitude to whatever the hell is bugging you or making you upset. -You know I'm only saying this cos I care about you, right?

There is someone else out there who is probably leading a more shittier life and has more problems than you do... Be happy kitten, you have a lot to be positive about (your youth and your brilliant wit and writing) - Diamond earrings, I wish someone would have bought me some bling over Xmas in the form of gems!

I once had a cat named Moses.

But then again, I once had cats named Cheech and Chong. Cheech got ran over by a car so I just had one cat named Chong. That was weird.

Where was I going with this....

Just wanted to wish you a Happy New Year (things can only get better) x

Shybiker said...

Hang in there, buddy. Life will get better.

Shalini said...

Oh man, here's to hoping Mr. Sakana doesn't lash out at you or dye his hair red or write poetry in the basement. (Also, I bet this year WILL be better. I bet...a bajillion imaginary dollars it will be!)

This new year will be better, for the both of us Jen. :) I can't wait for all the posts you have lined up! I usually don't like fish but the one you have is pretty! I hope he becomes nice to you & Rian!

You are a good person. I would have been tempted to wring the poor bird's neck! He kept singing in the closet, really?! Yikes! At least the fish won't be such a pain, and don't worry: Children are adaptable you know! ;-) How is the new job going? You have not mentioned it for a while... Big hugs Jenny. Hang in there.

Hope 2012 is a trillion times better for you!

Oooo, a fish. I used to have tons, and know I wish I kept them. Have fun with it.

Gayatri said...

What a cute fish! And I just know 2012 will be better for you. Trust me! said...

Haha, I don't have any pets, I'd love a little fishy!

Jen, I'm so sorry that things are so rough for you right now! I'd love to give you a great big hug. On the bright side, new pets are the best.

haha- I love the idea of sharing custody of a pet! I could maybe do half-time, commit to that :)
