2: I contacted my brother. It's been ten years since I cut his father out of my life. I'm finding it hard to explain to him what happened without being honest about how terrible his father was to me and to my mother. He just asked for details...
Also, thanks to xmas and my birthday, I have a ludicrous amount of portable electronics. Please don't steal my purse or my makeshift laptop bag.
Gadgetz. I haz them.

I can't wait to weird the boy out with my little souvenir.

Has anyone tried this? I have a gajillion things stained by nosebleeds and I think I might now have the solution. Perhaps?
Q: A bloody nose left a stain on my son's mattress; can the stain be removed?
A: Put hydrogen peroxide on the stain, then sprinkle with unseasoned meat tenderizer. The meat tenderizer dissolves and digests the proteins in the blood. Blot the area with cold water after the stain is removed.

Sorry for going missing and ignoring everyone.
Nothing else has really been going on, other than looking for a decent job. Yeah, that's a blast.
Oh, I did get off of my meds. They helped me when I really needed them, but I became so complacent and stuck in my shadow of a life. I used The Road Back as my guide and it was a great help. I didn't follow it exactly, but it really did make a huge difference in how I felt during withdrawal from Effexor and Topamax. I'm confident that this is the right choice and I know that I have to be really careful about dealing with any changes in my mental state. I'm not alone in this anymore, so I think I'll be ok.
About Pokémon, are any of you playing Diamond or Pearl? Give me your friend code and I'll give you mine. Battling and flag-stealing will ensue! Also, trading. I know I'm not the only person over the age of 12 to get hooked on this.

Basically, I'd like some input from those in the know on:
- Reputable jewelers around Dallas or online
- Getting jewelry custom-made from an artist or jeweler
- What is the deal with "ring sets" and do I really need an engagement ring and wedding band?
Does anyone else find wedding magazines a little frightening?

On to better things, even if it's just not dreading going to work every morning.

I'm still trying to catch up on everything I've missed while I was away. It looks as if that might take a little while.

This photo is really tiny, but it's all I have to show for my costume, so...here you go. :D
There's a second, closer shot if you click through to my flickr page. I actually did an awesome job on the makeup, but it doesn't come across very well in the photos. People were scared and startled all day. heh
I lost the office constest to a girl dressed up as a banana. Grrrrr... Office zombie mad...
