i guess i won...|
Court went well yesterday I guess. I got all the points dropped, they let me take a plea to careless driving. No points, but I had to pay $650 in court fees & all that shit.
I just don't think it was very fair because that cop really didn't have a reason to pull me over. He thought I was drunk driving & when he found out I wasn't he gave me a bogus ticket. So yeah, I didn't get the points but I had to pay a shit load for something I didn't even do.
I guess I understand why people hate cops so much.
Current Mood: okay
Yesterday Andrew & I went to the zoo with Dale, Julie & their son. It was a lot of fun, alittle cloudly in the morning, but then it turned into a really nice day. We all got memeberships so we can go back anytime, it was onlt $5 more than it would've cost us for one day so we're definatly going to get our money's worth :)
me & andrew (i'm the carrot)

this is a worth while article. It's about a 6yr old little girl who went to the American Girls shop in New York for a doll hair do party & was turned away because her doll was fake & other mothers in line chastised her! Its crazy how rude some people can behttp://consumerist.com/consumer/american-girl/american-girl-place-mocks-6-year+old-for-having-a-doll-from-target-refuses-to-style-the-dolls-hair-246666.php
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I've been having so much bad luck lately. First I didn't get the promotion,then Andrew found out he couldn't take off for our vacation, then I got a kidney infection & was out of work for almost a week, now on Saturday I was followed by a cop & pulled over for absolutely nothing.
What happened was I was coming home from the Philly area & I wasn't speeding or anything because it was pretty late & I know how the cops are around here. Well a cop pulls out & starts following me. He wasn't quite on my ass, but he was really fucking close. He followed me for about 15min & was starting to freak me out, so I took the next exit & sure enough he fucking followed me. So then I'm going down that road & it's 3 lanes, I'm in the far right lane & that lanes ends & merges with the middle lane. So I put on my turn signal & merge. Well he puts on his lights & pulls me over. There was no shoulder on the side of the road so I put on my hazards & drove about 15-20ft & pulled into a business parking lot(which he later gave me a hard time for). So he comes up to my window & immediately asks me how much I've had to drink. It's 3 in the morning(b/c of daylight savings time) and I had been at the bar, but I had stopped drinking hours before. I told him I had a beer about 5hrs ago because I've found as long as I'm honest with a cop then I don't get in trouble. He didn't believe me & went on a rant about how he could smell the alcohol. Then he was asking me if I was high. "Did you smoke pot tonight, do any narcotics, are you on any pills?" I'm like, no, nothing. Then he made me get out of the car & do sobriety tests. I had to stand on one leg & count to 30, I wobbled once & said I was sorry & I was just nervous. So he let me start again & I passed. So then He made me walk heel to toe for 9 steps, turn around & do it again. I passed that one too. Then another officer came & he was talking to me about nothing, the weather & why I was on the road & if I liked the place I just moved to. I think he was checking to see if I was slurring my speech or anything, which I wasn't! So then he goes over to the first cop & tells him I'm fine & he should let me go. So the first cop gives me a fucking breathalyzer. So I do that thing, & I'm well below the .08 he would need to get me for a dui. So now it's obvious that he's pissed because I'm not fucking drunk. So he starts badgering me again about being on drugs & asking if I had anything illegal in my car. Finally after he asked for the 10th time I told him he was more than welcome to search my car because I have nothing to hide. He didn't search it. He told me I could get back in my car & wait for him. So I walk over & he follows me & I had the plastic wrap of a cigarette pack in the side of my door. So he starts to pull it out & was like "What's this?!? Is it for drugs?" I'm like, no, it's plastic to a cigarette pack, I just don't like to litter. So he throws it on the ground & walks back to his car. He comes back with a ticket for failure to turn because when I had merged earlier there was also an option of turning, but it was just a fucking turn lane. So it's an $85 ticket, but it comes with 3 points so that will make my insurance go up $500-$600! So now I have to go to court to fight it. I'm going to go take pictures of the place where he pulled me over to prove that it wasn't a turing lane. It's just such a pain. I was nice the whole time he was making me do all those stupid tests, he didn't have to give me a ticket. He was just out to get me & was pissed that I wasn't drunk driving. I'm scared that when I go to court they won't throw away the ticket or at least lessen the charge. Plus court fees around here are $475. So that's fucking great too.
Whatever happened to karma? I'm a good person, but bad things keep happening to me :(

It's finally snowing here, none of that ice shit we kept getting.
Andrew went snowboarding with our friend Cheryl tonight. I wanted to go so bad, but I have a conference tomorrow morning & I can't blow it off. Now I'm wishing I had gone because they're calling for around a foot of snow & I'm wondering if the conference is going to be canceled. I wish I had gone. I haven't gone yet this winter & last winter I missed out too. I probably suck at it now, but it would still be a lot of fun even if I was falling on my ass the whole time. So to keep my mind off not going I watched Little Miss Sunshine. That movie was fucking great, really funny. I've wanted to see it for so long, I'm glad I finally took the time to watch it :)
I also cleaned & tried to figure out where to put some stuff(we still have unpacked boxes)
I'm trying to find a hutch or china cabinet for a reasonable price, but it's not going too well. It also makes me feel really old. I've had a bunch of business meetings & I shop for furniture. When I buy new cookware or something I get excited. It's fucking lame & I'm starting to piss myself off. lol
I bought a hand made shot-glass shelf from this lady that custom makes things like that & I can't wait to get it. I guess I'm not too bad quite yet. I'm not looking for doilies (or however that's spelled) or flowered wallpaper. I think my purchases are still kinda fun. Plus I just want to get everything put away so we can have a big party!
I also got my income tax refund on Friday, I'm trying to decide whether to pay off my credit card or to get a back piece. I promised myself I wouldn't get my back done until I got my promotion at work, it was little incentive to work my ass off... but it's so tempting! I'm just not sure yet. I don't even want to go to the tattoo place to see how much it is because I know if I even walk in there I'll get something done. Stupid responsibilities.

Happy Valentines Day!
I didn't have to go to work today because of a big ice storm, unfortunately Andrew had to go in. But I get to lounge around all day :)
I'm hoping the weather clears up because I wanted to go to the grocery store & pick stuff up for a really nice dinner.
i was watching the Today show this morning & they were doing a piece on men's underwear since they already did a show on women's lingerie. Well this one pair of underwear was sooo funny. It was called the "Trophy Shelf" and had it little compartment for his junk so it didn't move all around & was comfy. They were so serious about this stuff, I was dying. I wish I could remember the name of the company, I would post pictures.
So I had my interview with the owner on Wednesday. It went really well! I don't meet one of the requirements, but it's a little thing I can take a class for, so he said we can try to work something out & I said I would be more than willing to take the class. He seemed really impressed by everything I've done for the company so far. We talked about my career path & he was happy with my determination to get where I want to be. I'll have another interview towards the end of February. At the earliest I'll find out if I got the job in March. I wish I would have gotten it right there on the spot, but I know that's not how it works with my company. I think as long as I work really hard the next month I'll get it because I know he'll be watching me.

I have my interview for my promotion today. I'm so excited, I hope I get it!
I was supposed to have the meeting last Friday, but the president was stuck in a meeting all day so it got pushed back until today. You would think that would give me more time to prepare & everything, but I did nothing. I think I'm prepared anyway, I mean how many times can you go over something?
I really hope I get this, it's a major stepping stone for my career plans. I would be an assistant buyer, then I plan on moving up through the ranks until I'm a director, which is right below the vice president. Plus it would look wonderful on my resume so I could get a job with any other company.
Cross your fingers for me!

stupid new jersey|
I went to get my license renewed today since technically I was driving with an expired one. If I didn't get it renewed in PA then Jersey was going to make me re-take my drivers test.
Then I had to go get new insurance, because you have to do that before you get a NJ license too. Well my insurance doubled in this stupid state! I'm so pissed, but I need insurance, so oh well, I just have to suck it up.
I'm going out for my mom's going away party in a little bit. Hopefully it'll be fun. She's been kinda stressed out about moving & everything, so she's been a bitch to me lately. But she's only around for a few more days, so I'm trying to be nice.
