hollybrooke: (not my fucking day)
Dear Holly,
Here is your AstroSlam
for Friday, December 7:

If it seems like people aren't listening, it's because they aren't. You've lost your audience. No one cares what you have to say, so don't take it personally. Do the world a service by keeping your mouth shut!


Oh, and then there's this lovely one from Astrology.com:

Greetings Holly --

Here is your horoscope for Friday, December 7:

You're not in the best of moods right now, but you should still be able
to get on with your daily business. Don't let anyone push you too
hard, though, or you may end up biting their head off!

Wow, that makes me feel soooo much better.

As you may have noticed, it hasn't been a good birthday. (But nothing tops the shitty one I had in eighth grade.) Mom suggested just making those holiday cupcakes. I told her that I was holding off on making those until Christmas. Then she said, "Well, you could probably get yourself a nice carrot cake." I told her, "Um, that sounds like something you want. It's not your birthday; it's mine. And I'd rather have something I want, like cheesecake." She says, "Well, we've just been kind of cheesecake'd out."

When was the last time we had cheesecake? Ages ago. Woman doesn't pay attention. *rolls eyes*

Then she had the nerve to be all, "I'll splurge and get your a scratch-off Lotto ticket. You always have such good luck with those." Yeah, not so much lately. If my luck had been any better, I would've been able to call in and get that car payment paid, I'd be in a way better job than what I'm in now, and my bank account would be stuffed full. But none of that is true. And I'm sorry, but getting a Lotto ticket on your birthday is, in my opinion, a big insult. It's like saying, "I spent a dollar on you, and you can scratch this off, but the chances of you actually winning anything are slim to none, and if you happen to win something big, split it with me! Have a shitty birthday!"

Here's hoping age 27 is a better year than 26 was, because I just got put through the wringer last year.

Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes.

Dear Holly,
Here is your AstroSlam
for Thursday, November 8:

Thoughts of a promising career dance through your head like sugar plum fairies, but just like sugar plum fairies, they are a fictional construct. Prepare for a lifetime of dead end job opportunities.

Great. Wonderful news for the rest of my day life.

I am frickin' tired. After I got home from work last night at 12:45 PM (yeah, I had to work another midnight shift during the school week), I stayed up for three hours working on my paper for my composition class. I got maybe two and a half hours sleep. Then I got back up to work on it a little more. Now here I am at school, scrambling to get it typed up because the computer was being stupid at home.

Plus, I'm starting to get sick. Everyone's starting to get sick. There have been lots of call-offs at work, and it's not fun. I keep getting called up to fill in for whoever has called off. Minutes before I left for campus this morning, Diane from work called me up to see if I could fill in for a call-off today. They KNOW I'm in classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

I just...I don't know. This job isn't going to work out. I hope I can get a better paying job before Milijana decides to bump me up to working the customer service desk, because it's going to happen after Thanksgiving. And frankly, I just don't want that responsibility.

....My 27th birthday is in a month. Joy. Not really looking forward to it since my birthday always tends to fall around finals' time. Not like I'll be able to enjoy myself. I just hope that being 26 years old was nothing but a bad year for me and being a year older will usher in a new promising era.

Dear Holly,
Here is your AstroSlam
for Monday, October 1:

You're feeling unusually decadent today. Make it your mission to find someone to climb into bed with tonight. If that doesn't work out pick up a dozen double glazed donuts on the way home.

Well, friends, it's October. Halloween's in less than a month. (BTW, happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] sweetvirago. How was JemCon?!) It's time for me to revamp the LJ in Halloween-ish colors. Or Misfit colors, I dunno.

I haven't written a "Rock of Love" season finale recap yet. I got home about 20 minutes into it and I need to watch the repeat tomorrow to write a full recap. My thoughts? Kind of anticlimatic (especially considering I knew who was going to win)...I feel he used his diabetes as a ploy to see who wold truly stick it out with him, and it was hard because I liked both Heather and Jes. It was easy with "Flavor of Love" because New York was just obnoxious and it was easy to hate her; this is why Bret should've just rode it out with Lacey towards the end. Lacey made for good TV.

Dear Holly,
Here is your AstroSlam
for Wednesday, June 13:

Someone who has recently put a lot of energy into building you up will put an equal amount of energy into tearing you down. Tread carefully; stay away from dark alleys and wear platform shoes.

Gemini & Sagittarius

When Gemini and Sagittarius come together in a love affair, it can be a truly spectacular match! These two are extremely compatible; any rough spots they encounter during the course of the relationship are sure to be smoothed over with a minimum of effort. Gemini is quite able to provide pioneering, adventurous Sagittarius with the independence Sagittarius requires in a close relationship, because Gemini shares that same need. While Sagittarius needs physical independence, Gemini needs mental freedom, but the need is the same at base. These two both love new experiences, people and sensations, and are sure to have great adventures together. Both have attention spans that love to move quickly from one thing to the next in order to absorb as much experience as possible.

Gemini and Sagittarius are great friends, besides being well-matched lovers. They share a deep understanding and a very similar life view, based on a general, refreshing optimism and enthusiasm. Sagittarius can sometimes be a bit too blunt, saying things without thinking beforehand about whether they'll hurt someone or not, but Gemini is a hardy sort and, like Sagittarius, can forgive and forget quickly. These two don't have time or the interest required to hold a grudge.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury (Communication) and Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter (Luck). Mercury lends Gemini their chatty, intellectual demeanor; Jupiter is about both luck and philosophy, and lends Sagittarius their constant questing for knowledge and truth. This is a great match -- Gemini comes up with a new idea and Sagittarius jumps right on, ready to explore it to its limits.

Gemini is an Air Sign and Sagittarius is a Fire Sign. This is quite the active relationship! Air spreads Fire far and wide, helping it increase in power. Gemini and Sagittarius together have just this effect on one another. Theirs is a very fiery, passionate connection; there's always something going on. Sometimes what's going on escalates into a real argument and actually hurt feelings; these Signs are opposite one another in the Zodiac, which means they have quite a deep and complex connection. In other words, when it's good it's very, very good, but when it's bad it can be terrible. These two may fight most about who's in charge; they both have competitive streaks that can flare up at inopportune moments. The good thing is, although they may disagree often, their differences of opinion don't last long -- Gemini is too busy moving on to the next challenge to hold a grudge, and Sagittarius can forgive anything but a lack of respect from their Gemini lover.

Gemini and Sagittarius are both Mutable Signs and are thus extremely compatible. They're both flexible in the extreme, quite willing and able to adapt to change. This is a good thing; when Gemini changes their mind mid-thought, Sagittarius has no problem taking a 180-degree turn and keeping right up with their high-flying partner. When Sagittarius suddenly gets the travel bug, Gemini is very amiable about hopping in the car and going right along.

What's the best aspect of the Gemini-Sagittarius relationship? Their mutual interest in cultivating knowledge, utilizing intellect and turning it into action. They are well-matched in their enthusiasm, energy and drive. Common interests and similar personalities make them a compatible couple.

ha ha ha!!

Dear Holly,
Here is your AstroSlam for Tuesday, January 30:

Make good on your promise to finally clean out your closets and make a donation run. Then take a few minutes to pop into the store and replenish your supply of crap.
hollybrooke: (wake up call!)
Greetings Holly --

Here is your horoscope for Tuesday, January 2:

The urge to do a dramatic turnaround is hard to resist, but the stars
are saying to go slow and steady. Use this time to think about where you
are, where you want to go, and the best way to get there.
hollybrooke: (my little pony firefly)
Dear Holly,
Here is your horoscope
for Thursday, December 7:

Before your loved ones file a missing persons report, let them know you're still here -- you just need some time to yourself. Now is the moment to tackle a few weighty matters before they get even bigger.

Dear Holly,
Here is your horoscope
for Monday, June 19:

Act fast, or this opportunity may be lost for good. Believe it or not, the outcome doesn't matter. Trust yourself, and what you learn through this action will help you in ways that will serve you in the future.

What does it all mean, though? What opportunity? Sometimes I think astrology is such a scam.

As of June 12th, Blockbuster Video will no longer be participating in "end of late fees." It's official! I knew it! "End of late fees" was such a crock! We all called it when the idea was suggested! Customers keeping movies out waaaay past the due date with no consequence & turning it at the absolute latest without getting charged the retail price of the movie! Blockbuster's been losing money left & right! I'd like to meet the asshole in charge & smack him for his own damn stupid idea. Now we're bringing back late fees, but now they're gonna sugar-coat it & call them "daily rental fees": if the movie's not in by noon on the due date, they'll be charged 99 cents per movie per day late. And they can always choose the option to pay it the next visit.

So welcome back to typing in "Legit Late Fees" on each customer account when the movie is late. Welcome back to having to call up on the 49 day delinquent balance sheets. Welcome back to extra long late call lists. But best of all, welcome back to MOVIES ACTUALLY BEING AT THE STORE WHEN YOU WANT TO RENT THEM!!!!!

Oh yeah, customers are going to get pissed. But they have options:
A) go rent somewhere else. There are other rental outlets besides Blockbuster--go frequent them! I know I do! Netflix. Family Video. Movie Gallery. Hollywood Video. The little mom 'n pop joint in town.
B) suck up your pride & realize "Do I REALLY need to keep Wedding Crashers out for two frickin' weeks? I better prioritize & realize to rent a movie when I intend on watching it!" It's no big deal. We survived with late fees before. It's a small price to pay to have some guarantee that movies WILL be in when you come in to rent.
C) sign up for a damn Movie Pass. That way, you won't have a due date or late fees to worry about. There ya go.

Shit like this almost makes me want to consider sticking around for an actual management position. ALMOST.

*tangent* By the way, thanks for posting what you did Amanda, if you're reading this. It put things in perspective. And Christina's right. The last weekend will be just that--the last weekend FOREVER. Then no more Rocky!!

*tangent* Been in major crampy pain today. Didn't feel like doing shit at work. Ugh. Don't feel like doing shit now, either. I need a vacation.

*tangent* I was on the radio today! I bitched at the Illinois people on Kiss 103.5 to quit bogarting the free gas on Free Gas Friday & give us in Indiana a chance...or Kiss 103.5 can lose their Indiana audience. *ha* So THAT'S what I sound like...

Dear Holly,
Here is your horoscope
for Monday, May 15:

Sometimes the only step to take is forward, no matter how scary it seems. If you're so afraid of being wrong, you'll never be able to figure out what's actually right. It's time to move ahead. Now.

More tomorrow. Gonna go lay down

Greetings Holly --

Here is your horoscope for Sunday, February 12:

It's time for a change. Your sense of ambition is on the rise, and your
willingness to take action makes any and all challenges seem simply
laughable. Have you been thinking too small all these years?
