I love all libraries except this one.

Funny story:

I went to the library the other day to check out a book. Since I don't live in Dothan I cant check out books. (What's the point of a library if you cant check out books! How selfish of them). BUT Im employed in Dothan so I can. I brought a letterhead of Wiregrass Church with me. They also needed a document with my Graceville address to prove I live there. I politely asked them if I really needed that since I didn't have it with me. They gave me a hesitant look, the look as if they would let me go ahead and check it out...then they explained in a soft voice that their boss was very anal about that kind of stuff. I said 'its no big deal, for your sake I'll come back tomorrow!' So then they said "Don't worry about bringing the letterhead back since we've already seen it." I go back the next day (with my address doc) and explained to the new lady my situation. She immediately asked for my letterhead. I said "Oh the ladies yesterday said not to bring it back since they saw it!" She snapped back and said "WELL HONEY I HAVE TO HAVE IT TO LET YOU CHECK OUT A BOOK!" I said well I don't have bc they said don't worry about it. She said "WELL WHAT WERE THEIR NAMES?!?!" (She gave me that look like, AHA! Gotchya. Booyah. Yeah). I said well I don't know but one was a heavier set black lady who helped me with much courtesy, and the other had grey hair in a pony tail with bangs and glasses. She replied "WELL SWEETY, WE ALL DONT WORK AT THE SAME TIMES NOW DO WE!!!" I understood and said 'let me go check in my car for my letterhead.' I thought it was hopeless at this point. I found it in my purse on the way out!!! I marched back in there and said "HERE JERK!!!" Not really, although I wanted to at that point bc of her impoliteness. To make the long story short I stood there for 15 minutes while she filled out my info for my library card on an old typewriter. Ya know, the ones that take 5 minutes to type out one sentence? Those. (In the end I think I figured out who the "anal" boss was.) I got my book. I checked out "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath, which parallels her life. After I got it she then FIRMLY explained to me they don't renew books. What library doesn't renew books?! ...This one.

I just don't understand how people can be so rude for no reason. Couldn't I have been this ONE exception? Bc they probably rarely have people come in from out of town wanting to check books out. So its not like she has to deal with this all the time. Well it nevertheless gave me a chance to show Jesus. We are called to be the different ones. Even though SHE was the different one in this situation.

2 words. put a little love in your heart.

i am going to tell you a secret. A secret from the heart. and soul. my heart and soul to be specific. when i get ready in the morning sometimes i listen to really weird and great music to inspire my outfit. true story. ill give you a list in a second of a few examples. if i dont know what to wear i just simply play a song that will inspire me. then the ideas start flooding in.

sufjan stevens- we are what you say.
rusted root- on my way.
veer zaara- aisa es hai mera.
cat stevens- peace train.
donna lewis- always and forever.
my polka vinyl.

ps cat stevens inspires me period. thats all. he is one of the grandest. he has a special place in my heart.

toy story was excellent. its sort a kids suspense thriller movie. i wish i had seen this one with my best friend. bc we saw the first and second in the theater when we were younger. i nearly weeped at the end. it was truly touching. it made me want to go home and play with my old toys. they will never be forgotten. i love them.

dear barbie, im sorry for always cutting your fake hair. your long curly locks got in the way of my tom-boyish lifestyle. they also got extremely mangled. probably due to rolling you down the street in your scratched up corvette. sorry about that too.

gassy grassy glassy.

Wanna know something weird I do? Ok. I'll tell you. Since you asked. Occasionally when Im in my car listening to music I sometimes lip-sing. Then...minutes later I'll realize what Im doing. That's the sad part...I dont even realize Im doing it. Dont get me wrong, I love to sing, outloud, but sometimes on accident I lip-sing. I dont know why.

I have a few paintings I will be painting soon. I think they are good ideas. I hope they turn out the way Im picturing.

I like the sound of banjos. and good voices. and I like the taste of good food.

I am super excited about Toy Story 3. Those are some of my favorite disney movies. and Pocahontas. I want to be just like her.

Adventures. Adventura. Ace Ventura.

I am in serious search of some Binoculars. See, I capitalized it because they are currently so important to me. I am going to be doing much exploring this summer and am in desperate need of them. Yes, desperate. I think they can only help my explorations. Probably even increase them in number. My eyes can only see so far. I am far from blind. I am also far from seeing small things from 2 miles away. I have been looking, not as much as I should, at local antique stores, but havent had much luck. I did find some great perfect ones but they were out of my price range. I also dont want them to be heavy. Aka I am going to wear around my neck. 24-7. Holla back.

I am really missing the Olympics. They are so grandiose. and grand. My Aunt Betsy and I had the most hilarious commentary. Ever. We also wished we were in the olympics ourselves. We are talented in so many areas. My dad alwasy said he could see me as a Speed Skater. I have always said I could see myself as a Speed Skater. I like speed. On ice. I love the Olympics. And cannot wait till the next showing.

I have never called them "Fireflies."

Just the other day I was thinking about bugs. Lightning bugs to be specific. I am fascinated by them. I have one question...Where do they go in the daytime? Are they sleeping in the trees? It is not unusual for me to climb trees in the day time, and when I do there are no sign of them anywhere. Are they sleeping in the ground? No. Or...Do they just become a completely different bug in the day? Maybe they transform after the world is asleep. By night they are lightning day they are.....beetles. The ones that shine blue and green when exposed to the sun.

Sunday I was deathly ill. Let me explain. I was perfect all day. I ate chips and salsa for lunch while watching 27 Dresses. People say I remind them of Katherine Heigl. I dont look like her but maybe act like her...? Anyways, later that afternoon, around 6:30, I made a hilarious rap video that I will post soon. After that I got really hot and started feeling nauseous. I watched The Incredibles and Toy Story 2. It was downhill from there. I started throwing up. Which I havent done in forever. I was up most of the night. 4:00 I turned out the light and went to sleep and got up the next morning feeling better. Monday I laid around all day. I watched Finding Nemo, Ice Age, Tarzan, Alice in Wonderland (the new one), and The Wedding Planner. Tuesday, which is now, I am at work, feeling good. Maybe it was bc the video I did was by Eminem, Lose Yourself. I ate macaroni and cheese for dinner that night. I know it couldnt have been that bc thats my favorite food. Ever.

Wiregrass Church is good. It is my second week. I am still trying to learn everything. That part is going faster that I thought.

I am currently in love with orange scented candles.

I thought The Prince of Persia was going to be retarded...turns out I loved it. and still do. I thought it was corny but thats why I thought it was funny/good.
