Subject:Writer's Block: Talk to the animals
Time:12:10 am.
What would you do if your pet dog or cat suddenly started to talk to you, but nobody else could hear it? Would you assume you'd gone mad or simply be happy for the company? Would you try to convince your friends and family or would you be satisfied keeping it to yourself?



I would listen and be weired out at the same time. Maybe run away.

Subject:Craziness lastnight
Time:9:44 pm.
So my girlfriends decide to go to walmart, at 3:30 in the morning, and I am feeling like im gonna puke right, they tell me to lay down and they will be coming home to bring me food right. Well I get up off the couch to try and catch up with them before they left so I could go with them. Well I didnt find them. and I ran pretty far to go look for them, so I am like wasted, in a huge apartment complex and have no idea where I am. Tina thankfully gave me her phone, and said for me to call her if I needed anything, but she didnt have the other that was with her, phone number programed into her phone, so I call tinas roommate (the girl I am staying the night with) and she answers like 4 or 5 times, but I couldnt understand what number she was saying the apartment she was, I kept thinking it was something with a 1 on the end of it. I go up to one apartment, and knock on a guys door and I am saying Heathers name, and a guy answers and is like... are you alright? Do you need to come inside, and I wouldnt look at him, cause I didnt want him to molest me or anything, I finally got off the step of the stairs and went again in search for apartment, and then finally I call heather one last time, and finally find the apartment, this is like an hour later. Tina didnt even know that I was gone though, until I woke up this morning to tell her....

Mood: bored.
What to say. Lately I have been working 8-10 hour days or more with an hour half-3 hour break. Its been hard, on me body wise, but fine otherwise.

Its nice to be away from everyone though.

I've decided, things I am going to do in the next 6 months are, save up, all the money I can, learn how to drive, get a car, and go on a long over due road trip across the us of a.

I dont want to be around any of my family, only person I really care to be around is my grandma and everything is up in the air with her ill health.

I could go anywhere as being a server, so thats assuring.

Anywho, yes.

Subject:Work, at the O.C...I mean O.G and I am not saying Originial Gangsta!
Time:8:07 am.
Mood: anxious.
Yesterday, I had my first real day at work. It consisted of doing a training class of 7 hours. 1 santitation test. Lots of chanting, corperate slogans...like a cult...memormizing....reading like 80 pages in a handbook....reading aloud...endorse,inform and some other shit, that I guess I didn't chant enough, that consisted of me describing food to customers, for about an hour and half. Watching a 1990s video, and making a friend that reminds me of Bonnie.


I have 7 people in my training class and I don't care for any of them except for a girl named Katie, who is awesome. The rest of the people are lo-sers.

David - Geeky guy, really annoying obnoxious, wants to make friends too fast. Likes to listen to the sound of his own voice.

Daniel - Not up to par for the job he applied for.


Cristine - Use to be/could still be meth addict, stage 35 on the poster, who likes to act like our bullshit class is some sort of competition because shes 28 and looks like she's 55.

Alex - really have nothing bad to say about him - quiet. Around my age.

Brenda - Really bitchy host girl, who thinks she knows how to serve because she use to host. Likes to text during the class training

and then there is
Katie! Nice, girl, who sat by me in orientation, who isn't weird. Doesn't do meth, or make stupid comments about things I could care not discuss. She is also not from Phx, like me too. She is from Boston.


That is about it other than I hate the fact they have another Gina at my work as well.

Bah. Get a new name.

THEE END.

Subject:Just rambling.
Time:5:30 am.
Mood: cranky.
I woke up at 6:45am yesterday morning to go to work at 8am, for my first training day at Olive Garden.
I watched a video and did great heaps of paper work, that I can't believe existed. Read the employee handbook outloud...like I was in 5th grade...Had 8 other training people in the class, two who most likely use to be hosts since they were familiar with the manager that was teaching it.

Then since I got like 2 and half hours of sleep I went back to bed, after making everyone breakfast. I didn't feel well the rest of the day waking up and going back to sleep the rest of it. I watched the end of swingers, the d list and 200 ciggerettes.

Becca decided to talk indepth about some stuff, I didn't really expect. I talked about some things I didn't really think I would touch on. That's what I like to do though, surprise myself into doing and thinking new things. Unlike other people I don't board my feelings up like a shack and tell people, it's private propert, and there is no tresspassing if they try to get in.

I almost got arrested the other day. That was hot. In more ways than one. Oh the policia. Don't you have better things to do? I guess not.

My dad lands in Vegas today, he told me on the phone this afternoon. I guess he will not be stopping by though. Too long driving time. I don't think it's been long enough anyways. I would much rather it be, when I may miss him, a little, unlike now.

I am back on my vampire schedule. I hate it, when I am like this because I feel sick all the time, with my brain being all fuck you it's light out.


People that I miss that it pisses me off - Anna, Adam and Andrew.

Yeah. I hate you guys.

I don't understand that. How can you be someones friend and then just up and decide one day, never to talk to them, or call them or anything? How does that work? And not just any friend, bestfriend.

Then I wonder if those relationships were ever real, or were they just false. I don't know if I believe in moving on with life, and losing contact. I think that's just a cop-out.

I don't know. I guess it wouldn't bother me so much, if I didn't think about it.

I also miss Ken, where the hell are you hmm?

Hey but I get health, and dental....and a 401k...and an emergency money with this company so why am I being so negative and needy? Tssh.

And I thought I may have lost you!


So yeah...



Well...in the past two years, I had gotten a job at a downtown restuarant called The Greek Cusina...I started there in the beginning of November. I was working as a Hostess, and doing banquets..a month into it, I got moved up into reservations, working in the owners office, basically being an admin for a 3 story restuarant...that had outside catering, a banquet hall...3 level night club, and 3 level bar area, on top of a deli being reopened... I did reservations for 4 days a week, on top of my full time schedule in the restuarant.
Then after doing that for 4 months, I was moved up to being a server after being begged by the staff...I never really wanted the hectic work enviroment...Plus the owner was a crazed psycho who would flip peoples trays if they were missing a spoon...But I gave in, a couple weeks after that, I was asked to help in the management department...A girl named Annie, and I became the general restuarant managers...right under the owners...I did that until I quit, in May of this year. I was working 100-150hours every two weeks...I don't know how I did it.

I left the Greek because it wasn't my home anymore. I escaped from my real life into my job, and it got to a point, I was trying to escape from my job...
Escape where though? To my life, that I was escaping from? No.

Restuarants are where addicts hide... Under the pressed shirts, and the smiley demeanor, thats where you can find all your common drug addicts.
They make fast money for even faster highs, and unlike most work enviroments, it is accepted....expected...If you don't drink.... You are an outcast, that has no social ties/interest for the other employees to relate to you.

I never really drank before I turned 21. I got hired a month before I turned 21 at the Greek. Within a couple months I was drinking on a regular basis...Nothing too drastic...A year later I started to cave...

There was a haze developing over the Greek... A white snowy haze that was, something that was very behind closed doors and hush hush when I first started, but after all the management changes, new additions to the staff and general chaos being ensued...it started spreading like wide fire....it was a bartender...server...I've been in the industry for this many years...thing, when I started. It was a rumor that you only knew as that...a rumor.

But in November...right before my birthday, when I turned 22, I tried it. Cocaine. With someone that I saw as under me, pee-on status. A host. Hosts weren't preeve to the partying scene. They were outsiders. They were the snitch, the bubble-gummer that you knew was in the news that O'Ded. They couldnt afford it for one, so that makes it one reason why they weren't playing with the devils dandruff.

The haze was let out, it started becoming a fog at work. Everyone at my job was on it, or was doing it on the weekends...Some were doing it while on shift in the bathroom, up in the break room, or in the cooks basement...It became so accessible that 2-3 people were selling that worked there.

When a bartender that had been there for quite a while found out I was doing it...he said..."What, Jeanna's doing it......it is an epidemic..." I was known for being able to set boundaries and not do what everyone else would do...but this was something different...Anywho. Thats the first chapter. There you guys go. Where I've been....

* RUMOR *

http://www.hitsdailydouble.com

MADONNA SEEKING SANCTUARY: Sources confirm that talks are ongoing for
Madonna and manager Caresse Henry to join Sanctuary.

The deal would include both Madonna as a recording artist for the
company's label and Henry within its management stable, though it's "not
done yet," cautioned Henry.

Subject:Madonna's university challenge
Time:3:54 am.
Mood: wacky!.
http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,4-2004452353,00.html

THERE are a few challenges left for MADONNA - and a university degree is
one of them.

Having pretty much conquered the world of pop, Madge is now set to read
Literature at Oxford University.

The Material Girl is to further her knowledge of British literary greats
such as Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy and Jane Austen by studying for a
Bachelor of Arts qualification.

But undergraduates should not get too excited about sharing halls of
residence with her - she will be doing the course from home.

A source said: "Madonna was always frustrated about having to sacrifice
her education when her music career took off.

"She is fiercely intelligent and incredibly well read and has always
taken a keen interest in literature. She is determined to get a
qualification.

"She sets herself new challenges all the time and the Oxford University
course is her latest.

"It's an illustrious place to study and she was delighted to be accepted
and will make the most of the opportunity."

Madonna is a dab hand on the computer and researched courses where she
could study from home and submit her assignments online - from anywhere
in the world. And distance learning at Oxford means just that.

Its Faculty of English is the largest in the UK with about 100
professors and lecturers.

Madge was 19 and learning dance after finishing school in Michigan when
her pop career took off.

Since then the Queen of Pop has longed to get her education back on
track.

Subject:Prince meetup and Guy in Above Apartment downtown encounter!
Time:11:18 pm.
Mood: bouncy.
Okay so I had the best night, in a while!

So I went to meet up with my Prince friends at the Greek Cuisina downtown, where they have belly dancing and a singer and other greek things going on. I got there around 7:45ish and it started at 7pm so I was like crap. Anywho, I go in, and the guys like do you have reservations, and I didn't know if we did so I said if there were any, it would be under Bens name. Well he couldn't find any downstairs so he gave me a wrist band after asking if I was 21 which I said yes, and sent me upstairs to look for them there. I looked around and couldn't find them, so I went back downstairs and outside, and I was gonna go jump on the bus but I didn't want to...so I decide to hang outside for a while maybe they hadn't shown up. So I go back up the block and right then I ran into Ben, he had been upstairs and I hadn't seen him, he thought he saw me but wasn't sure. He had come out to get his cell to make sure I hadn't called or something. Hehehe. That was lucky in and of it self.

So I meet Dana and Gia new Prince friends, both live in Portland around my age, both graphic designers. Very very nice people! Sat by Nicole and Ben, which are both very nice and funny. So the Belly dancing and the food and all the hype at the restuarant wasn't even the best part of the night. It was cool and all, just hanging out but it was way way loud in the restaurant we were sitting like RIGHT by the speakers. BUT THE ULTUMIT THING!

We go outside right...walking to our cars - Dana and Gia said they would give me a ride home cause they are extra nice like that. But Nicole or Ben see these people in the above apartments downtown across from this wedding shop place, and the guy and some other people were starring at us, so we wave at them, and they wave back, so the guy goes and gets his guitar and I yell "HEY DO YOU KNOW ANY PRINCE?!!" And he yells back, yeah hold on a sec, so I figure hes going to like play on his guitar a prince song, we are laughing and being all giddy cause we are excited hes going to play something, and then he has BLASTING GETT OFF!!!!!! MY ALL TIME FAVORITE PRINCE SONG!!!! LMAO!!! It was fucking hilarious! And him, and his girl friend are dancing and GETING DOWN! It was so great, I couldn't believe it. He was blasting it so loud, so I take Nicole and go over and ask him if hes a big fan of him and if he wants to be invited to our next meet up and he's just like no you guys arent really meeting up for that and we were like, yes we are serious, and then Nicole explains what we do and he was like no thats cool, I just enjoy his music, people got to have a little Prince and then I asked him, does this happen to you a lot and he's like, yeah, sorta lots of weird people downtown, who needs TV?! I was just like wow. That made my fucking night even better than it already was. Dancing and yelling at some guy in his 2 floor apartment across the street in downtown! Then they headed out and said thanks again! Pretty freaking awesome! Did I mention he was cute to? Well yes that too. Hehehe WOO!

Subject: Madonna is praying for another child
Date sent: Mon 11/10/2004 4:13 AM

Pop icon Madonna has revealed that she visited Israel recently to seek
blessings for another baby.

The 'Material Girl' singer, who already has two children and is a known
advocate of the Jewish faith of Kabbalah, let this piece of information
out at a party at her house, which was attended by the likes of Victoria
Beckham and actress Demi Moore, reports the Star magazine.

"She talked about how the trip would renew their lives, and the hope was
that being blessed by holy people would make her wish come true," an
insider was quoted saying.

Subject:Madonna is a right Cowell
Time:8:27 pm.
Taken from The Sun:
http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2004471233,00.html

MADONNA is on course to claim SIMON COWELL's crown as the world's
toughest talent-show judge.
The Queen of Pop is stepping into Mr Nasty's high-waisted trousers in a
new US star-search programme to be fronted by hip-hop singer MISSY
ELLIOTT.

Madge got the thumbs-up from producers after destroying hopefuls during
a screen test with some of the most biting criticism ever seen on a
talent show.

Many of her comments were so strong they made Simon Cowell sound like
Snow White, so we've used some computer trickery to turn her into the
scourge of showbiz.

A source close to Madonna told me: "She doesn't suffer fools gladly. She
will have no patience with the have-a-go heroes trying to make a name
for themselves.

"If someone walks into the room the wrong way she'll say 'no' before a
note is sung and that will be their chance gone.

"She will reduce people to tears because she is so direct.

"Her comments really find their targets, they don't go flying past and
hit the wall. There is no pantomime about her performance.

"She plays the role of a judge as she is in real life. There is no
showing off like there is with Cowell.

"Only real hopefuls will get through to be judged by her. She is
brilliant at separating talent from over-confidence and the best thing
is that nobody can argue with her verdict."

Madge filmed her screen test for the show in a London studio a month ago
after she finished her Re-Invention tour.

She was given tapes of hopefuls and the producers recorded her reaction.

Missy Elliott personally asked Madge to collaborate on the show after
they got to know each other while making a series of Gap adverts
together.

They became so close they have given each other nicknames.

Madonna calls Missy "Miss Lissa" and Missy calls Madonna "Mad." The new
talent show, which has a working title of The Road To Stardom With Missy
Elliott, has been pencilled in for launch on American television early
next year.

I am told Madonna also expects it to be broadcast in Britain soon
afterward.

Subject:Rupert defends Madonna! Suck it Elton!

Subject: Rupert defends Madonna
Date sent: Fri 8/10/2004 8:17 AM

Rupert Everett has accused Sir Elton John of being "bossy and cranky"
after he criticised Madonna for lip-synching on her Re-invention world
tour.

The British actor became close friends with Madonna when the pair teamed
up in the film The Next Best Thing.

He has stepped in to defend her after Elton attacked the singer during a
rant at the Q Awards reports IMDb.com.

Elton slammed Madonna for charging fans upwards of #75 to see her
perform and then lip-synching certain songs.

Everett who appeared in Madonna's American Pie video said: "I don't
understand what he's got against her because this is the second time
he's stuck into her a bit. That seems really unfair to me. Listen, any
singer who dances all the time, you don't have the breath to sing all
the time.

"If you do a heavy dance routine, at some point you're going to do a bit
of lip-synch. But everybody does that. Madonna sings everything she can
sing but, if she goes into a dance routine, she's got to dance; you
can't breathe and dance and sing at the same time."

He added: She doesn't lip-synch her whole performance. I bet Elton has
lip-synched moments of his performance, even though he's at a piano all
the time. He's very bossy these days, I think. I mean he's lovely but
he's a bit bossy and he does seem a bit cranky."

Elton John Takes Swipe at Madonna Over Lip-Synching

By Paul Majendie

LONDON (Reuters) - British pop veteran Elton John took a foul-mouthed
swipe at Madonna Monday, saying she cheated her fans by miming on stage.

But the American pop superstar was swift to rubbish his accusation,
saying she does not lip-synch or criticize other artists.

While collecting a song-writing award from Q music magazine in London,
John suddenly launched into a tirade against Madonna when he discovered
she had been nominated for Best Live Act.

"Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage when you pay
75 pounds ($134) to see them should be shot," John said in reference to
ticket prices for Madonna's Reinvention tour.

"Madonna, best f---ing live act? F--- off," said the singer renowned as
much for his outrageous outbursts as he is for his outlandish outfits.

"Since when has lip-synching been live?" he asked.

He ended his outburst by saying: "That's me off her f---ing Christmas
card list but do I give a toss? No."

His tirade prompted a swift response from her U.S.
spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg who said in a statement:
"Madonna does not lip-synch nor does she spend her time trashing other
artists.

"She sang every note on her Reinvention tour live and is not ashamed
that she was well paid for her hard work."

And Madonna, 46, showed she was not taking John's criticism too
seriously.

"Elton John remains on her Christmas card list whether he is nice ... or
naughty," the statement added.
Madonna lost out to British band Muse for the Live Act title.

Elton John hit the headlines in Taiwan last month when, confronted by a
wall of flashing cameras at Taipei airport, he lashed out at the local
media, calling them "rude, vile pigs."

"The televisions and photographers at the airport were the rudest people
that I've ever met and I've been to 60 countries," the 57-year-old star
said.

His partner, David Furnish, has memorably captured the flamboyant star
at his most outrageous and demanding in a fly-on-the-wall documentary
appropriately named "Tantrums and Tiaras."

Madonna herself is no stranger to foul-mouthed outbursts -- as the
organizers of one of the world's most famous art prizes found out to
their cost three years ago.

Britain's Channel Four had to apologize for Madonna's "strong language"
when she presented the Turner Prize on live television.



What's funny, is I was there at her concert and I KNOW she didn't lip synch through her whole show, so he can go shut his british ass, I mean I hear him on the tonight show, and he stank, maybe he should warm up his voice before performing!

Madonna lost out to British band Muse for the Live Act title.

Elton John hit the headlines in Taiwan last month when, confronted by a
wall of flashing cameras at Taipei airport, he lashed out at the local
media, calling them "rude, vile pigs."

"The televisions and photographers at the airport were the rudest people
that I've ever met and I've been to 60 countries," the 57-year-old star
said.

His partner, David Furnish, has memorably captured the flamboyant star
at his most outrageous and demanding in a fly-on-the-wall documentary
appropriately named "Tantrums and Tiaras."

Madonna herself is no stranger to foul-mouthed outbursts -- as the
organizers of one of the world's most famous art prizes found out to
their cost three years ago.

Britain's Channel Four had to apologize for Madonna's "strong language"
when she presented the Turner Prize on live television.
