Finally, a good haircut!

Posted in meow meow on November 30, 2007 by Mitsu

I’m so glad I finally got a nice haircut!! It’s just what I wanted! I went down to Rideau Centre after work, and I stopped in at the “Hair Centre” to get a cut. The guy who did it, knew exactly what I meant when I said I wanted it spiky. He thinned it out (my hair’s really thick) and then razor-cut it. Nice! I’ve never had that done before, and I like the choppy look that it creates. Too bad it’s winter, and I have to wear a hat most of the time, but I’m going to get that guy to do my hair from now on. I took his name (Kal) and his card, so that I can get an appointment next time. Best of all, it was cheap! Only 26.50$ for a wash and cut, that’s not bad at all! I’ve had 40-50$ cuts before, and I was not as satisfied as I am now. I left him a huge tip, since it cost so much less than what I was expecting. But don’t take my word for it, you might not like what he can do to your hair, but I really liked it.

Another slow day at work…My eyes are burning from being sick, and it’s really bugging me. I’m going to get some eye drops on the way home as well as stop in for a haircut. It’s not that long yet, but it’s been bugging me. Too much puffiness, and it’s getting time-consuming in the mornings, to try and flatten it and then slap a hat on… It’s got such a weird texture too…straight on top and wavy at the back, so growing it out is almost impossible.

Anyways, what sucks about this, is that I’ll have to go to the mall where someone I’m trying to avoid works at. I’m just fed up of her immaturity, and she’s just excruciatingly boring to be around. I don’t like to spend all afternoon walking around malls and gossiping about people, thank you very much. I’ve never done it as a teen (seeing how I had no friends in the first place), and I’m sure as hell not going to start now. The best way to deal with someone like this, is to just say a quick hello, and then move on. That’s not being rude, it’s just being too busy to talk.

I know Hottie will be annoyed with me cutting my hair again, although he never says anything about it. He knows better than that. I mean, it’s up to me, and I’m not the type to be told what to wear, how to look, etc. I’ve dumped guys who do that. I’m just independent, that’s all. Well, I should get back  to work, I suppose…Meow.

Buy Nothing Christmas

Posted in meow meow on November 28, 2007 by Mitsu

Here’s a site that I stumbled across while surfing today, and it pretty much sums up how I feel about the holidays:

Buy Nothing Christmas is about celebrating the holidays without all the mindless consumerism and excess. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind shopping, but I hate how everyone goes so nuts about this one day! If I buy something around this time, I’ll use it right away, and if I give a gift, I want the recipient to open it up right in front of me, on the day that I give it, not on December 25th! It’s pretty much been that way when I was growing up, since my younger brother’s birthday is the 24th. He would open his gifts then, and that was it.

This time of year also gets really depressing for me. I mean, it’s not just all the people who are forcing themselves to be happy, it’s also the beginning of winter. I’m starting to feel down right now, and my dose of antidepressants has been upped, as it usually gets, around this time. Hopefully, it will make me feel a bit better. I just can’t stand this! Everyone has to be so fake, they all come out of the woodwork asking for donations…People are hungry and needy all year round! I help out and do my part whenever I can. I’m not going to max out my credit cards and put myself in debt because of “christmas”. I never have, and never will. I usually give little thoughtful gifts, like a book that a friend really wanted, a cute stuffed toy, or something that I made myself, and I don’t mind receiving something similar (like the stuffed Hello Kitty I got last year; thanks Yuki!). There’s no need for excess, it’s the thought that counts.

Anyways, check out that site, and let me know if you decide to post some of the flyers around town! I know I’m going to be putting them in my complex, the gym, the grocery store, and anywhere else I see fit! We can do this! I’m already feeling better just thinking about it!

Neko’s in heat…

Posted in meow meow on November 27, 2007 by Mitsu

among other things. This will be her last heat, as we’re getting her fixed in January (unless she has another one between now and then). I didn’t go in to work today, as I had a really bad sore throat, and it hurt to talk and eat. Now it’s a lot better, afetr I spent all day sleeping, then taking all these drugs to try and feel better. One more dose, and it’s off to bed for me.

On Neko’s heat, I found out really early Monday morning that she was “hot”. I was awakened at 3am, by something like this: “Mao…mao…Maoooooo, maooo, mao…MAOOOOOOO!!!” Oh, the joys of owning a horny communist cat! Just lovely, eh! Last night wasn’t too bad, but having her rubbing up against the paper that I was trying to read, got annoying fast. It’s her last one, so I won’t complain anymore…I’ll miss her acting like a total nutcase, it’s funny!

Hot dentist

Posted in meow meow on November 22, 2007 by Mitsu

The appointment was yesterday, and this left me with both good and bad news. Let’s start with the good news first:

• My teeth are in great shape, for someone who hasn’t seen a dentist in 6 years.

Now for the bad news:

• 3 of my 4 wisdom teeth have to come out. There’s not enough space in my mouth for them, which was causing the pain that I had. The fact that they’re not completely exposed, is why. They’ve started going bad, cause food gets stuck between the exposed part of the teeth and my gums. Lovely.

So, that was the verdict of my visit. At least the dentist was really hot, so that helped to relax me a bit. I’m also glad that besides my wisdom teeth (which I knew had to come out eventually), I have no cavities. It is kind of impressive, but I do take care of my teeth a bit compulsively. Yes, I’m one of those geeks who brushes after lunch. It’s saved me a lot of trouble though, but I digress.

The hot dentist referred me to this place that will put me under while they do the work, which is nice. It’s nice to see that there are health professionals who understand that people can get nervous, and there is nothing wrong with it. Well, that’s all for meow, time to go home! 🙂

facing my fear

Posted in meow meow on November 21, 2007 by Mitsu

So, tonight is the night I face my fear. I have to go to the dentist. I haven’t gone in quite a few years, since I’ve moved out and my parents can’t drag me there. I’m really freaking nervous, even if it’s just a check-up. I’m worried that I’ll get bad news. I know that one of my teeth has a small cavity in it, that’s why I’m going. Hottie’s going to drive me, cause if it was up to me, I’d miss the exit, and just keep driving off into nowhere, or just never leave my parking lot.

I feel ridiculous though. I’m just going in for a check-up, yet I’ve had butterflies in my stomach all day, and even last night. I was reading up on my phobia, and it says that it’s an “associative” fear, which makes lots of sense. Every time I’ve gone to a dentist, it’s been either painful, or bad news. As a kid, I used to burst into tears when they’d tell me that I had a cavity, despite my brushing. (But I found out that brushing too hard doesn’t help any) I have needle phobia, and this is one of those things that is associated with it. Just the smell of rubbing alcohol at the doctor’s, or the smell of a dentist’s office, is enough to put me on edge. Anyways, I have to face this part, and then, when I have to get a filling, I’ll have them put me under…It’s the only way I can get that shot in the mouth.
