Everybody loves Piccys! [Mar. 19th, 2006|04:10 pm]

I mentioned in my last post that I recently got a new dog a month ago. Thought I'd share some pics of the little beast <3 with you all. BTW, his name is Snoopy, named by his previous owners, not us. He's a mixed breed of Jack Russel and Chihuahua.

DOGGIE!Collapse )

Can't post much right now. Gotta be at work in a few so I'll catch you all later.

Well, I'd never thought I'd see myself do it, but I got myself a deviant art account. I needed a place to put all of my work, drawings and/or writings. Yet, while I'm doing this, I feel that this is going to be yet another dud in my creative skills. I know I shouldn't think like that, but it's a feeling that I can't shake off of me, due to my past (several years ago, actually) posting of works online and I haven't gotten any response at all.

Ah, well, at least this is worth a try. This is the site: http://tiduslionheart.deviantart.com/

Anyway, I'd better head to work. Ciao.

An Anniversary... [Dec. 8th, 2005|10:50 pm]

[Current Music |Enya - Watermark]

It was on this day at this time 25 years ago when the most horrifying event in music or indeed (for fans like myself) in the world at the time. John Lennon was shot in front of his hotel and was soon pronounced dead at the hospital. Though I don't have his albums, I am familiar with his work and the charity and notable things he has done in his life to promote love and peace in the world.

I got the following from a co-worker a couple of nights ago. After reading it, my admiration for Lennon is even stronger than before. I wish I knew who wrote it so I could give them proper credit. If, after reading, you wish to post this on your journal, go right ahead. I certainly don't mind.

John Lennon (Oct. 9, 1940 - Dec. 8, 1980), In Memorandum.Collapse )

NOTE: Yeah, my music isn't Lennon's. But I chose it for the somber mood for this entry.

An update to this entry ---> http://www.livejournal.com/users/cygnuslover/5630.html

Well, it's been three days since I've had my surgery. So far things are looking up. Right now, I can walk around real easily without experiencing any pain, able to sleep on my sides real comfortably, and sitting up/down has almost been mastered.

It still hurts like hell when I cough, so that's a challenge that has yet to be conquered. Some other things that need to be tested out include: running, bending over, lying on stomach, getting up from the bed without struggling with pain, lifting heavy things (that'll be much later down the line).

I'd just figured I'd update to let you guys know how I'm doing. While I'm thinking about it, I'm a bit curious. I know that no one spends all their time on their journal, and that they have a life 24/7, which also leads them to be very productive and busy. I admit that I am one of those people. But I just still want to know: Does anyone ever read my journal anymore? I would really like to know because my curiosity is killing me.

EDIT: I just checked my weight a second ago. Before I left for the hospital, I weighed in at 175 lbs. Now I'm at 167 lbs. Hmmm.... *thinks of Dr. Weird: "GENTLEMEN! Behold! I have lost weight.........MANUALLY!!!"

The fun with surgery (VERY serious entry!) [Nov. 20th, 2005|12:12 am]
[Current Mood |soreunbelievably sore]

I know that it's been awhile since I've updated. I've been too busy at home and at work to even have a little time for myself. Guess this is the sacrifice when you grow up. But right now, I feel that it's important that I get this message out.

Over the past week, I've been suffering from a bad head cold. Nothing too big, the major thing I suffered from was coughing too much. On Thursday, my cold got so bad that I had no appetite. I was able to grab a few things to eat, but later on that evening, I just didn't have the appetite to drive through somewhere for some dinner during my pizza route. Around midnight that night, that lack of appetite vanished that I was thinking that "If I don't get something to eat, I'll starve to death." I was able to get a few snacks and such in me before I went to bed. But the stomachaches continued. I tried Pepto and Pepcid AC, but around 3 in the morning, my cramps turned to a BRIEF bout with nausea. I couldn't sleep that night due to my stomach hurting so much.

Well, later that morning, as my folks got themselves ready for work, I went up to them and told them about meeting with our family doctor. Turns out that my Dad had an appointment with him early that morning, so I tagged along with him. After my doctor got through with my Dad, I went in and he examined me. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, could have prepared me with what he diagnosed me with. All of my stomach pains that I have been experiencing that night were all common symptoms of....


Yes, you heard right, my appendix was highly infected/inflamed that I had to go under surgery. Thankfully, it didn't rupture. I won't go into detail, but I was treated around 12:30 in the afternoon and started recovery since 3 pm. All through that time, I was in so much pain and nausea that I could hardly sleep through the night at the hospital (that and the fact that the nurses kept checking on me every 2 hours). Well, after having dealing with a bunch of liquidy foods (chicken broth, jell-o, etc.) I was finally released this afternoon around 4 o'clock. I'm still recovering at this time and I believe that I won't be going back to work within a week or so. So, I'm giving this heads up here. There'll be a permanent away message on my AIM for the next 1 or 2 weeks saying that I'm recovering from my surgery. More than likely, I won't be at the computer alot to respond, so don't expect me to reply back or anything until the message goes away. You can still send me "get well" wishes if you like. Heck you can even snail mail them to me. I'll even provide my address, if you like.

Anyway, I'd figured I'd send this message to you guys to let you know how I'm doing. Hope to hear from you all soon.

Dear Abby... [Aug. 19th, 2005|01:00 pm]
[Current Mood |goodgood]
[Current Music |VH1 Classic on the tube]

Okay, I'm not much of a huge fan of "Dear Abby." But after Vanessa showed me this article in today's paper, all I got to say is: YOU GO GIRL! XD

Dear Abby: I live in a family-oriented neighborhood. My next-door neighbor flies his gay pride flag in his front yard. Because we have a lot of families with young children who do not need to be subjected to that kind of thing, I have asked him numerous times to remove it. His response: It's a free country and he does not subject anybody to his lifestyle.
I strongly feel that in a neighborhood devoted to children's morals and the way life should be, he should not be allowed to have that flag in his front yard for everyone to see. I threatened if he didn't take it down, I'd call the police. I feel it's harming the children to see that flag flying, especially on a busy street that everyone travels on. What should I do?
-Righteous in New Castle, PA.

Abby says: Calm down. Your neighbor is hurting no one, and "young children" will not understand what the flag symbolizes. Unless there are codes, covenants or restrictions in your neighborhood governing the display of flags, your neighbor has a right to hoist his banner. Rather than picking a fight about something so insignificant, you should concentrate on cultivating our own garden and stop obsessing about what's going on in his.

Feel free to share this article on your journal if you want. ^^

Once again, another quickie. [Aug. 10th, 2005|01:17 pm]

Well, my days off from work has just started. The next few days are going to be filled with housework, yardwork, and other such tasks that'll keep me busy. So I may not update until Friday. Keep in mind that this is a MAY. I'll try my best to get here and put something up, but with how busy I'll be, I can't guarantee it.

I'll keep an eye on my F.List to see what you guys are up to, and comment when I can, K? Laters.
