Talking to [livejournal.com profile] carinthea right now on MSN messenger.

My theatre is working out a deal where the Katrina survivors being housed in our city can come and watch free movies to provide them with some sort of escape for a while. I do hope our corporate office agrees to it... but they're so damn cheap. Oh well. If they say no, that's just another reason for me to hate that company, the cheap bastards. I can't wait until I find another job. I'm actually almost sick with wanting to work anywhere except where I currently work. They treat their employees like dirt. I just got a raise though. Get this... it was a WHOLE quarter.

In fic news... will be working on the R/T fic today.

to do list:
* Snape/Willow drabble
* Faith/Charlie fic
* next part of Eternal Sunshine
* next next part of Eternal Sunshine
* Remus/Tonks fic
* Draco/Blaise fic
* finish Duets with a Remus/Dru and a Faith/Charlie
* next part of Trick of the Light
* smutty piece with currently undecided characters
* I owe [livejournal.com profile] carinthea a mini.
* Dawn/Connor fic of at least 5 parts

I am thinking of doing this. Seen on [livejournal.com profile] emeraldswan's LJ. It's something *I* specifically can do that will actually help someone. Visit [livejournal.com profile] the_fund.

Please read the info page:

So thoughts? Comments? You think anyone would even be interested?

So this business is very close to home now. The school my mother teaches at... which is not even 5 minutes from our house will be getting 23 students who are hurricane victims. They have no idea where their parents are. Very sad. These students have had care packages made for them with stuffed animals, blankets, clothes, and school supplies. They will be housed at a local church and with some local families. Their meals are being donated by the school and the church. I've already volunteered to help. I feel glad to be better part of the help, more actually involved... because our community is a good one here, but at the same time this all makes me very sad. How sad to not know if your family was alive or dead and to be away from home and things familiar during it.

Grand Prairie EMS and Fire Department, you guys rock my socks!

They were out in this heat collecting donations for Red Cross... ALL DAY. It's not often that I am proud to live in this pit called Prairie, but today I was. I even donated my lunch money. Now I'm pretty darn hungry so Sarah needs to hurry up and get over here so we can go to dinner, but it was *SO* worth it. I probably wouldn't have done it if the guy hadn't been cute.

*is such a sucker for bleached blondes*

wtf?

From now on September 1st will be known as Insano Day. More weird has happened today.

*There was the sad news of Dave.

*This girl I work with, who is one of the nicest people ever, her longtime boyfriend cheated on her this past weekend. I found out today. I never would have thought. She's an excellent girlfriend. He completely never deserved her. I can't believe he threw something that good away... for a piece of ass. Guys, ass isn't that vital. If you have a good woman, you'll get the sex. Just treat her right.

*I gave Bossy the Cow a look today that made her stammer. That was actually kind cool.

*I can't believe certain people are entertaining the notion of NOT rebuilding and helping in New Orleans. Have you no sense of pride? Does something have to happen outside this country to get the support it deserves?

*There's these friends I have that got busted for dealing drugs several years ago. We'll call them Dudley and Harry. Dudley got caught. Harry did not, but Harry was blamed by Dudley's parents. And as in HP, Harry and Dudley are cousins. No one in the family believed Harry except her parents... and me. Because I've known Harry and Dudley since we were little kids. Well, it finally came out that Dudley had been lying. Dudley's mom, we'll call her Petunia, sorta went into denial... even though Dudley had admitted to the lies. In front of witnesses. So today Harry's mom, we'll call her Lily, called my mother to say the latest was that Petunia was telling people that the reason my brother was in jail was because Harry had ratted him out. So ridiculous. My brother got caught because he's stupid, not because of Harry. My brother didn't need any help getting caught. Also, harry hasn't even SEEN my brother in well over a year. Hell, *I* haven't even seen Harry in at least 2 months. So dumb. So I have come to the conclusion that Petunia has her Crazy Flakes for breakfast every morning.

And now I have to go back to work

If you've been watching the news at all, there *IS* something you can do.

And while I know a lot of people, like me, don't have money, I will still be donating $5. It's about all I can afford, but I can't do nothing, you know? I'm not that kind of person. I gave to the Tsunami relief, and I couldn't afford it then either, and I didn't even know anyone who was there. I have family in Louisiana.

This morning has brought good news. I have heard from relatives in Mississippi AND Louisiana. I wasn't expecting to hear from the ones in Louisiana for at least another couple of days. Last I heard from them, they were battening down the hatches there and waiting for Katrina do hit. Everyone's fine. Except a niece of mine will have to go to a different college now as Tulane's kinda not there anymore. I'm just glad she's ok.

The fam in Mississippi are far enough north that all they're getting is seriously rained on. Not that any of this helped my tossing and turning last night, but perhaps I'll take a nap this afternoon before heading in to work. At least now I can concentrate enough to maybe write something today. The relief... it's A LOT right now. I hope everyone who's waiting for word from someone gets good news and soon.

Thanks to everyone who offered some support.

Now back to my cup-o-noodles.

So the more news I watch, the less good I am feeling. I have family in Louisiana and Mississippi. Have not heard from anyone yet. Prayers appreciated. I don't think I'll be getting a lot of sleep tonight. I've tried not to worry, but that's about as useful as telling a dog not to pee on a tree.

Glad to know people like [livejournal.com profile] houses7177 are ok.
