The Sims 2: Pets

*dances around* If they’ve got any in stock, I’m getting my game tonight, and only because it’s supposed to be in short supply, and the fact that everyone wants it, :lol:. We’ll see if they even have it in. Josh checked at 7 am this morning and they hadn’t gotten any in, yet. 🙁 Stupid Direct!! Ship them already, FFS!!

Anyways, in anticipation of getting the new game, I’ve already started getting pets from the Exchange. *snort* Go figure, right? They upped the requirements again, but I should be okay. They’ve done it on EVERY SINGLE expansion and stuff pack, and I haven’t had a problem. Graphics all work the same, just a little slower, and that’s because I don’t quit everything, :lol:. I still keep IM running, along with my anti-virus/firewall. I’ll be getting the new graphics card come tax return. It’s hard finding a PCI card that has more than 128 MB on it, for less than $200. Hell, it’s hard finding a plain-old PCI card period. Most of the ones now are PCI-express, which we don’t have 🙁 *kicks PC for good measure* I just want the card for 2 reasons: 1. play the Sims, and 2. 1280×1024 on this 19″ is driving me crazy. It’s like 800×600 on a 17″. Well, to me anyway. The Wishlist has the one I’d like to have.

I still feel icky, but headache has gone away, thanks to 2 shots of Buttershots mixed in my hot chocolate and 2 Tylenols, :lol:. The hot chocolate really helped my throat too. Shoulda listened to Josh this morning, :lol:, instead of just whining at him. Right now I’ve got PC-cilin running, scanning for stuff. I had stuff sitting in quarantine that I didn’t even know about O.o That both freaks me out and makes me feel good about the program. Freaks me out, because one of them was from today, and I got no notification about it. The other was the day of Kathy’s viewing and I wasn’t even on the PC, just had it downloading. That’s freaky-deaky.

HNT – Oct. 19, 2006

*snort*

Nastiness

I feel like absolute shit right now. My eyes are burning, my nose is stopped up, and my throat hurts like hell. 🙁 I hate, hate, HATE being sick. I wanna just curl into the bed and sleep, but of course, can’t do that, because Josh needs to sleep. Well, at least good news is that he’s gonna get off pretty damn early tonight. He’s scheduled 9pm-6am, BUT, he’s got 4 hours clocked over already, and they don’t want anyone having overtime, so he’ll be off by no later than 1am or they’ll be paying for overtime *dances* That means I can actually sleep in and he’ll be fine *dances*

I feel so bad for my Jabber Gals secret sister. She hasn’t gotten anything from me in a while, because of what happened with Kathy. And now, I can’t even get up the “oompf” to do anything to make something, and I feel so bad about it. But, when you’re sick (and exhausted, since I’ve been falling asleep from sheer exhaustion every night), you can’t force yourself. Right now, I just want to sleep, and sleep, and sleep. 🙁

Yesterday

Yesterday was David’s Bridal visitation day. What the heck is that, you ask? Julie and I went to David’s Bridal and looked around, :lol:. That’s all. I saw some cute shit there that I want when Josh and I finally tie the knot. I told him I have to be married by the end of 2011, but in actuality, that means by Dec. 08, 2011, because I want to be married before I’m 30, :lol:.

The kids, while we were there, were awful. They kept running off, and Ethan kept screeching for no apparent reason. But, they did take some gorgeous pictures:

I also found some stuff that I’d like:

The dress is very slim-fitting, but does flare, and has a gorgeous train.

Possible jewerly and veil holders. I’m definitely going with a tiara, just because I’m spoiled that way, 😆 (that and Josh thinks I fit the stereotypical princess at times, so it all fits).

One last round of pictures: NEW HAIR COLOR!!
