Goodbye tree

This used to be my pretty ficus tree. It had the coolest roots and pretty green leaves. Now its dead on my table and I have to throw it away. I noticed its leaves were turning brown, thought it got too much sun and so I watered it. I kept watering that sucker. One day I touched its root cause it looked weird, and my fingers squished into the bark. Bad sign.

We thought it would live if we stopped watering it and left it in the sun again. That didn't work out. Now hes waiting on the table to be chucked in the garbage.

I am sad about that tree cause I liked him. Well, all my other plants are doing ok. The basil is great producing more leaves for my food. The basil and the tree are separated just incase the basil sees the tree and drops dead.

I don't think Tony and the bird were discussing that the bird would share his breakfast, but it happened.

She tried to get her feets in the bowl too, she got shooed away promptly after that.

Presenting Pumpkin Pie!

That's right, I finally made it. I chickened out last weekend and didn't make it, but had all the ingredients for it. Today I woke up and felt I had to make pie. So right after getting dressed and breakfast, I set up all my stuff and went to work on Aria's Pastry Recipe.

First I didn't put enough flour on the counter and the pastry I rolled out stuck to it. Had to re roll it out and that wasn't so good, but it didn't stick. I didn't do anything fancy with the crust on the edges like Aria does, but that's ok. Popped the pastry in my pie plate (from Grandma S) and then went on to the filling.

Filling was fun, Aria's instructions said to mix it until it looked gross, and that was what I did. Filled it, baked it with the tinfoil on for 15 min (not sure if I was right in removing it, but it isn't burnt).

So here it is in all its glory:

mmm this was my sample. It was much tasty!

I am not dressing up, though it would be fun, but I am doing Mik's Makeup for that night.
Tested it out today, and its not bad.

I used a while eyeliner pencil to draw the outline and then a cream purple shadow then a purple and pink shadow to make the colour darker.

I am thinking of trying hot pink in there to see if it will work. I wasnt sure because the hot pink shadow (Sushi flower) isnt as dark as I'd like.

I am hoping she brings her guitar cause she cant be a rock star without it or a mic.

So that was what I was up to this afternoon, that and doing laundry :P

I just want to get rid of the ugly green background!!!

WHY WONT IT LET ME?!??!?!?! GRRRR Stupid template! I dont want to use another template cause I like this one...

Maybe the green will just go away if I leave it a while....

Please don't mind the ugly green in my winter ish set up.

The last thing I want to do when I get home...

is call Bell and yell and wait on hold for an insane amount of time to get things fixed!
I checked my phone bill and things weren't programmed properly...AGAIN!
My fault for not taking a closer look at the bill, but I shouldn't have to have my phones programmed 3 TIMES!

I called and got the evilest HAG EVER!! Oh my goodness, she wouldn't do anything, didn't care to understand or read any of the notes on my account.
Asked for her manager, and waited on hold while she got one. I so thought she was gonna hang up on me instead of getting him.

Well, after waiting for a while, her manager came on. He was so calm and patient and figured it all out. Hes calling me back to reprogram things right and to take care of my bills.

Well, I hope he can fix it up all nice, I am going to await his call on Monday. I will try to be nice to him.

I am kinda glad I work at a call center, I understand what you need to do to get things done, I wish it weren't so difficult though.

I dont care what they offer me when my contract is up, I am sooooo done.

THE LINE IS BACK!!! WRINKLED IN THE MIDDLE OF MY FOREHEAD!!! Not a good after work face. I need to find something to do to calm down. I think a trip to the corner store for a chocolate bar or some penny candy is in order.

ta ta for now
