Friday Five... >:(

WTF is wrong with the fridayfiver people. I just checked. There are 3 maintainers. 3!! 3 people to post 5 questions a week and they can't get that done. Damn imbeciles! So, again, I went and stole some questions from a previous week. What else can I do? I'm desperate here.

1. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I'd like to be invisible.

2. Which is more attractive to you: physical appearance or personality?

3. Who did you last fight with?
The husband.

4. What did you eat last night?
Uh. I can't remember now. Nice.

5. Who are you mad about?

I'm giving myself 10 minutes to read your journals and then I'm going for a nap because I got 3 hours last night.

5 Questions


What a week.

I saved this entry for today, because I knew that it would be a perfect ending to a shitty week. You don't need to read about my complaining. I'm just gonna post my 5 gratitudes and get out of here.

I'm grateful for...

... My grandmother, who knows me better than anyone else, and who never fails to remind me that things aren't as bad as I think they are.

... The husband. He gives the awesomest hugs, and smells fantastic.

... Help wanted signs.

... Cheese. Because it was worth cheating on my diet, even if I only had 2 bites.

... My LJ friends, who keep me entertained during the most stressful of times. Thank you! xx

I'm off to bed. I'll be back tomorrow to read and comment tomorrow.


What's in a Name?

I've felt somewhat iffy about my username ever since I started this LJ. I like Cinzie (It's pronounced tchinzie, in case anyone wants to know).

Some History
Cinzie's been my nickname since I was 19. I took a few italian classes while I was in university. One of my Italian profs, Guido Parisi (I loved his name) would always call me Cinzia. Everyone in the class thought that my name was Cinzia as a result, and nicknamed me Cinzie.

Guido's since gone back to Italy, and is now teaching there. I'm not sure what he's teaching though. Broken English maybe.

Which leads us to the poll...

Poll #1037486 Cinzie Business

Do you like my username?


Do you think that I should change my username to cinzielicious?

Yes. Your username sucks.
I don't care. Your polls suck.

Last night was hell. I don't want to talk about it out of fear that it'll ruin my great mood.

I need to get some rest before my next shiftfromhell, which means that I won't be doing anything on here at all. I'll be back to read about your weekends later.

Ciao ragazzi.
Last night, when I got home from work, I opened the door to my bedroom and found another house centipede under the door.

Again, it stood there, frozen, and waiting for me to make the first move. Suddenly, a great idea came to mind... I should call the husband to take care of it. It's what he's here for.

"Man up and take care of it yourself," he said, leaving me feeling all alone in the world, facing another evil centipede.

So, the husband couldn't be convinced to get off his lazy ass and kill it. I had to think of something, and I had to think of it quickly. I slowly made my way to the other side of the room, while trying to keep my eye on it, and picked up my swiffer sweeper. It would be the perfect weapon against the evil centipedes. Not only will it kill the bug, it will also clean up the mess left by my sudden, and merciless attack.

And attack, I did. I killed it! Mixed feelings of both pride and shame suddenly came over me, as I thought of what I'd just done. I was happy that there was one less house centipede in the house, and appalled at the measures that I had taken to ensure that the centipede was "taken care of."

I turned my swiffer around to see the poor thing one last time before I dumped it, and to my utter shock, it wasn't there. In fact, it was nowhere to be found.

Another battle was lost. But the war certainly wasn't over.
The friday five weren't updated today, and since I'm the anxious loser that I am, I decided to go back and find one that was posted earlier...

1. Do you gamble?

2. Have you ever rode a horse?
Yes. I used to take riding lessons when I was a kid, until I fell and broke my right arm.

3. Do you drink alcohol?
Yes. But I haven't in the last 2 or 3 months since I started this diet.

4. What is your favorite Mexican food?

5. Friday fill-in:
On Saturday, I plan to ____.
go to work. (I don't have a life on weekends.)

Gotta hand it to ihaveham to find the awesomest quizzes on the interweb. Apparently, I'm highly paranoid.

It was a year ago that I stood in the living room in front of my father-in-law, begging for GolTV. I was ready to start crying if I saw that there was need for it.

It's been a year that I've been able to actually watch FC Barcelona's matches, instead of reading about them in the news.

I love them. If I had enough money, I'd buy the team and dress everyone in pink. And I'd watch them play in their pretty pink uniforms. I'd be the happiest person in the entire world!!!

A girl can dream.

Me ♥s Ronnie. He signs the camera at the end! *squeeeee*

Every time I think about this season, I get uber excited.

I'm never gonna grow up... oh well.

FC Barcelona's YouTube channel won't let me embed. :(

News Bulletin

I found Handy Tweezers!!! They were under the bed. Heh.

But I don't need them anymore because the new ones are awesome.

What to do now??

K, i'm off to work.


DO NOT F*ck With Bob!

With over 40 years experience in show biz, Robert De Niro undoubtedly has the cred to call his own shots. Apprently the exec at Fox who was trying to direct him in that ad didn't get the memo.
