One Night She Swallowed Up The Lake
11:58 PM CST
Okay, I was at an "outdoor" (not exactly outdoors; it was a shop with outer seating within a bigger building - there was a small fake sidewalk with a gate surrounding the area though) café with dad (who knows why). I ordered a salad which was brought in packets. the lettuce was in one, the dressing in another and the other stuff was wrapped in baggies within the dish. after I mixed everything together, I left the table cause there was a dvd sale going on across from the seating area. at first I was ecstatic cause I thought there were a TON of dvds I wanted, but after walking around with the one dvd (an anime series; that Mini Goddess spinoff of the Ah! My Goddess series in case you were wondering; it was vol.3 ...I rationalised that it was okay to get it before vol.2 since I may never see this sort've deal again) for awhile, I realised that was the only one that even looked halfway decent. suddenly I set it down and stomped on over to the table. dad was sitting there ready to go and I asked where the hell my salad went off to - he looked dumbfounded then perked up like a lightbulb flashed over his head and said, "the waitress took it away." I was slightly peeved considering I hadn't even started on it and at least wanted to take it with me to go. I blew up at dad and he just shrugged. yes, I want a salad badly (that is my interpretation cause seriously, I want one and dad is the one who is supposed to get me one. rather stupid dream, but I still liked the perked up dad look; bwah).
My lips have been chapped the past few days. it's rather unnerving considering they just get worse each day. perhaps I sleep with my mouth open - there is no other rational explanation for the worsenedness of it. I've tried gloss, ice, water, ice in water, showers, etc. it just won't go away completely. I have that cracked at the side thing that occurs sometimes, too. ya know? it's hard to open my mouth to yawn and I semi-have chronic yawn syndrome (CYS) right now, too. I have to stifle them which causes my headache to flare up somemore. ew. anyway, I think the cracked side thing is a vitamin deficiency caused by dehydration/heat and combined with the dry chappedness of my lips, it makes for unpleasant burning sensations and feeling like I just got punched in the mouth.
Making out suuure sounds like a good idea right now ..darnit! even if possible, it would have to be where the lips cannot be seen cause I'm sure no one would be turned on by them at this state; I've examined them. slightly better with gloss at least.
It doesn't help that somehow I got a blemish abit below my nose near my mouth as well just to emphasise the gross factor times two! at least that can be covered accordingly.
Mom said I looked very Lands End-ish today. not sure why - Lands End needs a helmet. at least she quickly corrected and upgraded me to JCrew-ish. it must be cause I'm wearing red argyle socks and ginger striped pants - they are from JCrew! I did tone down the preppiness with my "hardcore" achewood tee! I cannot get enough of it! I still haven't gotten the other one I had been expecting, so I emailed on mom's name about perhaps switching to a different shirt from the new store. yessuh, I'm impatient, but well, it had been more than 1-2 weeks, so I was patient enough for awhile. I think the main concern is that, yes, the past couple days there hasn't been a package for me. of course, I should get used to it cause once the holiday packages stop coming in, (I'm expecting my free amazon gift certificate package, an xmas amazon package from lindsey, and well, the achewood shirt) I'm setting a limit till I make more money. bleh. I need to start getting motivated.
