My one, my only, my pppprrrreeeecccciioouuss...

I just got my copy of 5000 Years of Chinese Costumes. Whenever it was $100, I didn't have the money, but when I did have the money, it was $300.

Scored it two days ago off of Abebooks.com, for $50.

The Rarity (QTAF)

Quirky Traditional Alpha Female

You have an unusual and unbelievably precious combination of traits, especially in a woman. Not only are alpha females extremely rare, but traditional ones with nerdy/geeky interests are even more scarce. Unlike the other types, I can't give you a description because I'm not sure if you actually exists. I know this is not a compatibility test, but you are the girl of my dreams. Please, oh please message me! (Not to sound desperate or anything.)


You are more QUIRKY than NORMAL.

You are more TRADITIONAL than LIBERAL.

You are more DOMINANT than PASSIVE.

When picking a date, consider: Lord of the Misfits (QLAM), The Late Bloomer (QTAM), The Snowball's Chance in Hell (QTBM), or The Manga Geek (QLBM).

Well, this weekend I graduated from Catawba College with my Bachelor's in Business Administration! It was a lovely ceremony, and my husband and children came, along with my parents, my paternal Grandmother and my Aunt Vickie. We went out for dinner afterward at La Cava, which was fantastic. And then I was gifted with things, the height of which is a three day, two night trip to Asheville, with Biltmore tours and lunch at the Biltmore, for my husband and I, no children allowed!

Now, I am in the process of applying for the fall semester at University of North Carolina - Charlotte for their Master's in Accountancy program, which should take me 1-2 years to complete, depending how many classes I can take at once. I will also still be working at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in the Tutoring Center, and as a part-time instructor this fall, teaching accounting.

Now, all I have to do is study for the GMAT, which is why I am posting to lj instead...

Your result for The Elemental Beauty Test...

Etheral Beauty

42% Water, 17% Earth, 25% Air, and 17% Fire!

You scored 42% Water! Superb!

You have the etheral beauty of a god or goddess. You love things that shine and shimmer, are soft and flowy, and have a dreamy quality about them. You gravitate toward natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, silk, or hemp. You love the colors of the sea like the deep blues and sea-greens. You love the see-through sheer fabrics that you can layer, or perhaps loose shirts and pants when you seek the comfy side.

You inner beauty shows a sentimental side. You have keepsakes and heirlooms and love things that have emotional attachments or a history.

With water emotions run deep. It is a feeling sign. (Astrologically signs for this include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.) Your emotions can be like a hidden treasure hidden below the surface in the subconcious. This may cause you to have some mood swings. But the beauty of what you are is that you will, in spite of fears, look inside yourself.

You also scored:

17% Earth: Earth is the natural beauty. They tend to stick to classic styles and colors. They tend to be more grounded. 0% Earth may indicate that plain old common sense is not your strong suit. Even percentages between Earth and Water indicate someone that is a hard worker that requires security and an attachment to possessions.

25% Air: Air is the fearless beauty. They are offbeat and funny. The mix old fashions with new and love to make new trends. They aren't afraid to be new or crazy. 0% Air could indicate that you have trouble looking at things objectively. Even percentages between Water and Air usually indicate a dreamer-typer person who tend to be fantasy prone.

17% Fire: Fire is the alluring beauty. They like to wear bright colors and show some skin. They are sexually minded and spicy. They use a lot of charm to get what they want. 0% Fire can often be seen in someone that pushes and tries to force self-expression. Equal percentages of Water and Fire show a person that is rather impulsive and shows a great deal of emotion.

I had THE CRUD last week. THE CRUD consisted of stuffed sinuses, green junk in the nose and lungs, and a nice, hacking cough. It was bad. I was sorry to miss Chansons de Sacred Stone, the baronial business meeting and the canton business meeting, but you didn't want me there. Really. I missed a class Thursday and a meeting with the dean, with whom I had left a VM that I was sick and needed to cancel. She replied back saying she was scared to call me, as she was afraid she would catch it over the phone I sounded so bad.

So I basically lost a week there. I laid on the couch and played WoW.

Today was my first day back at RCCC. I had to help a student connect to blackboard and his email this morning - it took us an hour and change. Why this student has not yet had the mandatory computer class I do not know. You are supposed to have to take it the first or second semester you are there. I'm wondering if they are still testing you on this when you take your entrance tests. They were...

My boss wants me to crawl around and plug in some new calculators we got. She's less flexible than me, so I'm the plug / cord monkey.

Tonight I am in my Visual Basic class. I have had the Java class, and the eCommerce class, so this is just the same. Just different syntax. But, since I am taking this course out of order (I should have taken this one first), he is going much slower than I need. So I have some down time...

Which means I can update LJ!

This week has been a fun week. My last one before work starts for me. Once again I will be back in the tutoring lab at RCCC. It has been nice having the time off. Yesterday I took [livejournal.com profile] elfsea_escapee out to breakfast and we chatted awhile. It has been far too long since we had done that.

I need to rewash some linen I have at home for a new under-tunic. I had already washed it, but that was with my old washer and dryer. My new ones get so much hotter!

I am sitting at school, bored, as my teacher is going over beginner stuff...

Ok, not necessarily the week in review, but a start!

My friend Sharon (also known as Kellia in the SCA, and [livejournal.com profile] kellia_ironrose on LJ) went to the hospital with a brain aneurysm. She was bowling and just keeled over. After moving her from the small Salisbury hospital to a large Charlotte one, they were able to stop the bleeding and she is now in stable condition. They expect her to be in the hospital for 1 - 2 weeks.

The only other person I have known to have an aneurysm died from it. Almost instantly.

This is scary. She's only like 15 years older than me.

We had a nice Christmas this year - everyone got a new computer this year (except me, since I did not need one). Instead I got a nice diamond and rose gold ring. I still need to get it sized, but it is beautiful.

We were invited to [livejournal.com profile] elfsea_escapee's New Years Eve party this year, but we decided to lay low at home. I had trouble staying awake until the ball dropped.

School starts tonight. I have a bad case of senior-itis. Four more classes and I will have my bachelors. I just have to make it four more classes...

This week has been a nightmare. While a lot of my stress went away as school and work stopped for the winter break, my stress level has been elevated again. Mostly it is the normal Christmas stresses appearing. But then there was last weekend.

Last Friday, as I was running laundry, the kitchen sink started to gurgle. I monitored it, but ignored it, as I had other things to do. As Geoff and I were taking showers Saturday evening, it happened again. So we searched on the internet - either we had a clog, or the tank was full. We have lived in the house for over 3 years now, the tank theoretically could be full, but it shouldn't be. Sunday, things were getting worse, so we dumped a bunch of Draino down the two most likely drains to clog - the kitchen sink and the master shower. Nothing changed.

So Monday I managed to catch my neighbor at home - he owns Carolina Pipe Cleaning and he and his wife are fantastic people. He said either the tank was full (and it shouldn't be) or the problem was with the drain field (which would be expensive to fix). He said he would put us on his schedule for pumping.

When a septic system stops working, everything water related does also. I could not was dishes or run laundry. We could not shower Tuesday evening. Heck, we couldn't even flush toilets. We're still debating which is worse, no electricity or no septic.

Anyway, our septic system was pumped yesterday and guess what they found - a 6 ft by 4 ft by 3 ft mass of solidified toilet paper floating on top of the septic tank. That's right, 72 cubic feet of solid toilet paper. The septic guy had to use his shovel to break up some of it so the vacuum could suck it up. At least it was a cheaper fix than fixing the drain field would have been.

So, I should be running mass loads of laundry, but I am now just sitting on my butt, watching Blackadder I, relaxing.

One of my regulars, the Goggle lady (see this entry) needed to put down her instructor's name as she signed in. She said she could not remember his name, "because it was one of those Eastern European names, and who the heck can remember those?" She wrote Mr. W in the teacher's name spot on our sign in sheet.

I, being the good person that I am (and to keep our records up to date), look in the directory for Mr. W's name. No Eastern European name that start with W. So I pull up the fall schedule of courses, because they list names when they can.

Mr. Pleszewski is her teacher. She couldn't even get the first letter right of a teacher she has seen 2 or 3 times a WEEK since AUGUST.

This moment of tutoring brought to you by Sarah GROCHOSKI (pronounced Gro-husky) --> which is a Polish last name, and therefore Eastern European.
