Another LJ user in one of the Twilight coms posted this and I think she did a swell job on it.

It makes me want to go see the movie again.

And I just watched part of an interview with "Edward Cullen," he talked about the makeup and how he has so many lines in his face that they couldn't make him as white as the others (it would have "erased all facial expression,") and made a joke that when they did his makeup he thought he looked "half cabookie and half transvestite." That made me giggle like a lunatic.

Another funny line (related to why he acted like such an asshole in the beginning of the movie) "Well it is kinda like real life when you really like someone, but then you look at yourself and you think, 'Don't like me, I'm a dick.'"

So Social Security has the form I need, online, to change my name. The only way it could be easier would be if, (A) the form was typable online and (B) I could do this crap by mail.

California DMV has a tab for changing your name on your license. There is a hyperlink under the form name that is needed. One would ASSume that the hyperlink would lead you to a .pdf form, considering they have other .pdf files hyperlinked.

Here's what ya get at the hyperlink:

The department does not provide the DL 44 or DL 44C online because original signatures are required on the form, and each DL 44 or DL 44C contains a unique barcode which must be scanned or keyed by the DMV employee.

To obtain a DL 44 or DL 44C form, call DMV’s Automated Telephone Service at 1-800-777-0133 (available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week) to have a form mailed to you or visit your local DMV office to pick one up. Back to Main forms page

So let me get this straight, you can't put the page online and make it printable only - forcing the user to sign his/her name - or have a note saying it is only valid if we sign it there AND the barcode can't print out on my printer and be scanned? Shit I work for the state and every month I type in my timesheet and my position number and social security number produce a barcode that prints on my time sheet. That's just nutty. Guess I have to go to DMV to get the form.

Now that I have posted my post wedding post to [livejournal.com profile] weddingplans I took them off my friends list and I am deliously happy about it. I will keep [livejournal.com profile] 2008_weddings on there until the end of the year, but then it goes too. I'm still in the newlywed phase, and these groups were fantastic help to me, but I no longer feel vested to the turmoils of table linens and save the date cards. Time to move on.

Now I can get through my f-page a lot easier :-)

And it's raining in SoCal. You'd think it was the end of the world and of course my commute in was fucked up. This was one of my views as I was on the 57 near Katella:
 



Which I guess was better than the poor souls headed south on the 57:


That's one sucky thing about my commute, not only is it longer than before, but I share the highway with a whole LOT of big rigs. I got into work at 8:30. Stephanie called in sick. I was going to run errands at lunch, but not if it looks like this. I got out of my car and the rain was at such a diagonal that my pant legs are still wet and I am barefoot so my feet and the inside of my shoes can dry out.

But hey, at least it isn't snow, and our temps aren't hovering at 10 degrees...

Also, note to self - don't let the gas gauge get below a quarter of a tank the night before you think it is going to rain. I am almost at the bottom of the tank and now need to go out in the rain and get gas either at lunch or after work. Yuck. I miss my dad at times like this - he always makes sure my mom's car is full of gas so she doesn't have to go to the gas station and he sometimes took mine when I was a teenager and making minimum wage part time. Kinda like a gasoline valet, LOL.

I took Little Sister to see Twilight to see what all the buzz was about. Mind you - I knew nothing of the story other than they were vampires and everyone seems to be all gaga over the books / this movie.

So um yeah, now I know who Edward Cullen is, and why so many LJ'ers seem to have them on their icons.

The movie was awesome and full of greatness and it reminded me why I liked vampire topics when I was a teen (and thus filed my canine teeth into points...don't worry I have no plans for a repeat performance of that and have since stopped using metal nail files.)

I probably won't ever read the books, but found the movie highly entertaining and can't wait for more. Little Sister leaves for Mexico on the 16th and will be back on the 4th. I got her a mall gift card for the Laguna Hills Mall (actually it is a Simon giftcard so she can go to any Simon Mall - I just know that she and her friends go to LHM a lot.) I also got her a pink notepad with a magnet (she can stick it in her locker or something) and it has a "C" (since her name is as odd as mine and neither of us will ever find personalized stuff with our names spelled correctly.) We went to Islands and got tiki tenders (chicken strips) and then went to the movie. Awesome way to end 2008, now I have 2009 to look forward to with her.

I followed the directions. I loaded the program. I dialed into the call first. I clicked on the link and entered the codes. People were talking, instruction was going on. There was a meeting.

So why oh why did I get the error message telling me the meeting ended? I felt so stupid having to pipe up and say, "Um excuse me, this is OCnative in Fullerton, CA. My online meeting is telling me the meeting is over."

She was stumped.

Now I have to call her at 11:30 AM to get my very own personal meeting / online seminar. Me - who normally likes to just put the phone on mute and follow along with the group.

They are going to slowly phase out the coupons, and confirmation that expired ones might still work (I've experienced this.) I wondered if this would happen considering they don't have the stellar sales they were hoping for.

But hey, they are still cheaper than the big box grocery stores. And the pizza dough is AWESOME. We are making pizza tonight with it.

Blizzard Fans Camp Out for Online Game Launch

Orange County Business Journal Staff
 

Diehard fans of “World of Warcraft,” the blockbuster online game from Irvine’s Blizzard Entertainment Inc., have lined up a day early to be the first to get their hands on the newest installment of the game at an Anaheim electronics store.

Fry’s will open its doors at 12:01 am Thursday to sell the “Wrath of the Lich King,” which goes for about $40.

Game developers and executives are set to meet players and sign copies of the game, including a special collector’s edition containing maps, music and art.

The group of fans, some who were said to be in full tailgate mode and cooking on portable grills, are mostly “a well-behaved mob,” the report said.

Blizzard is the biggest maker of what’s known as “massive multiplayer online games,” in which millions of players face off over the Internet.

The most recent “World of Warcraft” installment, “The Burning Crusade,” came out in early 2007 and sold 3.5 million copies within its first month.

“World of Warcraft” now counts more than 11 million active players, each who pay a subscription rate of about $15 per month.

The game enthusiasts formed a line at Fry’s Electronics in Anaheim as early as Tuesday, according to a blog post on tgdaily.com, a technology products news site.

Blizzard, a unit of France’s Vivendi SA, has been gearing up for the big launch of “World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King” by hosting midnight events at a handful of locations around the world.

Prop 8

ocnative: (Oh snap!)
Okay so I am obviously emotional about certain subjects, and Prop 8 is one of them. After dropping off some bags of clothes at Goodwill, I was sitting in an intersection behind a car with a "Yes on 8, reinstate marriage" bumper sticker. Standing on 2 of the corners were people holding "No on 8" signs. I got so excited I started honking my horn and giving them a thumbs up.

The driver of the car in front of me glared at me in his rearview mirror (he knew I was honking at them and not him) and I stuck my tongue out at him.

Then, when the light turned green, and me and another car continued honking our support, I started crying and the sheer seriousness of the situation. I may have resigned myself to who is going to be President, but I can't give up on this proposition.

This is from Rick Warren, the head of my former church.

Dear Saddleback Family,

Last Sunday we announced that Jaime, my daughter-in-law, (Josh's wife) was hospitalized Saturday night with blurred vision and headaches. Tests immediately revealed a massive tumor at the base of Jaime's brain. This is the second life-or-death health crisis that Jaime, age 25, has faced in the past two months. Seven weeks ago, Jaime had a high-risk and premature delivery of her first child, a son named Cole. Both mom and baby came through that, but now we face another.

I am writing from one of the best neurosurgery hospitals in the nation, where the chief of surgery has taken Jaime's case because of its difficulty. If you are reading this Wednesday morning, Jaime is, at this moment, undergoing a long, complex, and dangerous surgery on her brain. The team of doctors has said the surgery may last up to 16 hours.

Please stop and pray for a successful surgery. Thank you for sharing this burden with us.

"The prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up." James 5:15 (NIV)

"Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results." James 5:16 (NLT)
