I was laid off this morning. Our company just lost Centura Health, which was more than 50% of our business so Samantha, Heather and I were all let go. They're leaving Rick, Christina, and Katrina, but Rick thinks they'll all be gone within the next 6 months.

I honestly don't know what's upsetting me more. Losing my job, or losing my second family. Those girls meant the world to me. As we were leaving, I got a hug and an I Love You from everyone in that office.

Rick started crying when he had to tell me the news. For some reason, that meant a lot.

This entry is about to get really rambly really fast, so I think I'm going to stop here.


In honor of the best group of coworkers I could have ever asked for. Thank you all for 2 1/2 amazing, wonderful years. I'll miss you all so much.

Wow. Today was even more stressful than yesterday, believe it or not. The owner of our company and his wife were down, and we had a visit from the Colorado Springs Police Department. They took every single paper Annette had on her desk into our breakroom and spent 2 hours pouring over them. Then one of the detectives came out and searched her desk and trash. After they left, Rick called us into his office and told us Annette is being fired then accidentally let it slip that it is for credit card fraud.

I keep swinging between feeling REALLY bad for her that things were so desperate she had to resort to that, and being REALLY pissed off that she would do that to our team. We fully admit we think we're better than the reps in the Head office. We do our job better, faster, and plus, we're just nicer. The fact that someone from our team would fuck up SO badly almost feels like a personal insult. I asked Rick how he's doing with it, and he said it does feel like she slapped him in the face. We could tell he was really down about it, so as we were leaving tonight we all went over to him and drilled into his head how amazing a boss he really is, and that he did nothing wrong. I hope it helped. :-/

In other news, it is exactly 24 hours and 32 minutes until I will be seeing Green Day. Damn did that come fast...

What does Harvey, Red Dawn, Short Circut, Karate Kid, Highlander, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Robocop, Child's Play, Poltergeist, and many, many more movies have in common? They're all being fucking remade. All of these great, amazing movies are being butchered because Hollywood has become to goddamn fucking lazy and greedy. It makes me sick.

We've had some pretty massive changes in the last week or so. First off, The Nocturnal Tomatoes are no longer together. Craig had a major freak out last week and quit. Johnny and Jeff wanted to try to find another drummer and start doing bar gigs again. Parker is beyond tired of that. He thinks what they should do is sell at least one song, which could sell for around $60,000, and each go their own way.

Speaking of going their own way. Parker and I have been talking a LOT lately. He is going to go look for a part time job here soon. All of the money he makes will be going into a savings account. Then when my income tax refund comes next year, we're planning on moving out of this city. We're looking seriously at Boston. This is a place neither one of us had ever even dreamed of moving, but there are some good opportunities out there. Parker has a friend that has great connections in the Music world out there. He's already told Parker he can get him gigging, earning about $500 a week. I've been looking at jobs in the medical collection field, and they pay WAY better than here. Right now, I'm getting $10.50 an hour. I'm seriously underpaid. In Boston, they pay between $15-$18 starting. Now granted, the cost of living is higher out there, but if Parker is bringing in money, I think we'll be good. :) It's a huge change, but I'm excited. I've lived in The Springs my whole life. It's time for a change. I'm so glad Parker feels the same way.

By the way, if any of you know anything about the Boston area, I would LOVE to hear some advise.

It's been a very bittersweet evening. I just purchased 3 tickets to see Green Day in concert. Not even 5 minutes later, my MP3 player crapped out on me. As in, it's totally fucked. I am dreading tomorrow. I listen to that thing constantly. Which is probably why it crapped out on me... 

But shit. We're going to see Green Day! I've always enjoyed music, but it's become so much more important to me. And this will be the first concert I've ever been to for a band I love, not just kinda sorta not really like. Plus this will be such an amazing experience for Jordyn. I am so tempted to go wake her up to tell her I got the tickets. It's going to be interesting to see what she thinks of Denver. She's only been up there once, and she was about 2. 

Now I've gone completely braindead. I didn't go to bed until 2am last night. I managed to find my childhood best friend on Facebook. I never would have done this before, but I sent her a message. Lets see what happens. :) The weird thing is,  I don't even remember signing up for a Facebook account, but I did have friend requests from people I actually know. I don't know how you all found me, but I'm glad you did. :) 

Okay, I'm going to bed so I don't pass out at work tomorrow. Good night.

 I need to preface this post by saying I'm a little not quite sober right now. So please excuse what you're about to read. 

I went to the Tomatoe's show tonight. It was fucking amazing. A packed fucking house which is always nice. Means i'm not the only once up dancing. Yay. :) I went with my coworker Sammantha, her husband, and a friend of their's. They left after the 2nd set though. Which is okay, because I made a new friend because of it. Parker has talked about Wendy for a couple years now, about how great and cool she is. I've met her at shows before, but we never got close or really talked. That all changed tonight. We kept stepping outside for cigarettes and chatting. She ended up driving me home. One of the biggest reasons I never go to shows is because I don't have a way to get there and back. Wendy said that's ridiculous. If I ever need a ride, she said to call her and she'll come grab me. She only lives about a mile away, so it's not too far out her way. So yay. Maybe that means I'll get to go to more shows. :D 

Craig actually complimented my mouth tonight. He said I have beautiful, full lips. He said this while grabbing my mouth. But then he ruined it a little bit by saying if I ever do anything to stand in the way of the band making it big, he'll punch me in said beautiful lips. I guess one of the girlfriend's is causing BIG problems for the band. Like, huge fucked up shit that I can't believe she's getting away with. I really hope the band knows how much I support them. I'm seriously one of their biggest fans. That rough patch Parker and I went through a couple years ago actually helped, much to my surprise. It made us both realize how much we love and need each other. I wouldn't leave him for anything, even if I don't see him much because of the band. Even though lately, I've seen almost a little too much of him. Hehe. I haven't watched Heroes, and it was on on Monday, because Parker and I have been hanging out so much.  It's all good though. I'm not complaining. :) It's great spending time with the love of your life. 

Parker tends to get very emotional and lovey when he's drunk. I think he's rubbed off on me. Right now, all I want is to give him the biggest hug ever. But he's not going to be home for a while. They hadn't even started loading the trailer up when Wendy and I left. 

Oh, totally random, but Beaker just reminded me of this. The other night, I was taking him for a walk. I came up the stairs on the far side of the building, which I don't do very often. There was this huge, scary looking Mexican guy standing there. He looked at Beaker and said, "I kid you not, that used to be my dog. He ran away about 8 or 9 months ago." Which fits how we got Beaker. We found him about 9 months ago, starving in the stairwell of our apartment. He did say he's seen us walking him before and knows he's gone to a good home. So I'm not worried about him trying to take him back. It was fucking weird though. 

Okay, I'm done rambling now. Good night everyone.
