"Who let all of this riff-raff into the room? ...Get them up against the wall!!" [Sunday, July 16th, 2006 @ 1:33pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

Yesterday I got to work some more, oh how fun it was. Although I was only supposed to have to work 4 hours I got stuck there for 6 because we just had so much work to get caught up on. Fun times. That put me in a cranky mood, so to cheer myself up, and to reward myself for the quitting smoking, and because, well, I'm obsessed with DVDs, I went to Best Buy and bought a ton more crap. I haven't even finished half the stuff I bought last weekend, or even started the graphic novels I bought the other day, but I some how figured I needed to get more. I have a definite spending issue. I went there originally to get some shit that's been on my list for a while but had just never bothered getting, but of course I also had to walk around for an extra hour or so looking for other random shit to spend money on.

I ended up getting That 70's Show: Season 3, That 70's Show: Season 4, Jim Gaffigan: Beyond the Pale, The Girl Next Door, Ray, Family Guy: Volume 3, and Mr. Show: The Complete Series. I had never seen Mr. Show before, but I've heard it was good and I love David Cross, and for $40 for the whole series (while they were somehow selling each of the 4 seasons separately for $30 a piece) I figured I may as well check it out and holy balls am I glad I did. This show is fucking HILARIOUS.

After Best Buy I came home, watched some movies then Tess and I headed down to Lyndas house for a little get together. We ended up going to Wal*Mart to get some food and Lynda wanted to get Lost: Season 1, but decided it was too expensive and passed. She sucks, but I ended up getting Superman, Superman 2, and Look, Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman (a documentary about all things Superman) since they were all on sale for only $5 a piece. Yay for compulsive purchases. Anyway, we got food, went back to her house and watched The Machinist. It was good, but nothing too amazing, it was a tad predictable and rather unoriginal, but it was entertaining enough. Then home, then sleep.

Also, I am building a wall and doing a mass editing of my friends list because either you don't update ever or I just don't read your posts or, well, because maybe I just don't like you and find you annoying, who knows. Also after this entry I am going friends only because there is too many annoying douche bags that I don't know that just added me because we like 1 of the same movies or because they like my tattoos or some stupid bull shit and even though I have requested they leave, they still stay around and make retarded comments.

I know there are 2 of you (Jay and Lyra) that read my LJ that don't have LJs of your own, so this will pose a problem. So suck it up and just make one. You don't have to post your own shit, but if you're going to want to still read this you're going to need one.

So, first off, I must say
CONGRATULATIONS im_a_hot_dancer!!!

Today it has officially been 6 months since I had a cigarette. I have no desire for one at all so I think I finally have quit FOR GOOD. It only had to quit like 7 times for it to finally stick ;)

According to quitmeter.com I have saved $462.69 and have not had 2,501 cigarettes. So yeah, go me.

In work news, I am sooooo sick of working, when I left last night at about 9:30 I had 57 hours and I still get to go in and do another 6 or so today. The money is going to be hella sweet, before taxes I will be getting $670, just for this one week, thing is though with all the time I work I really have no need for so much money since I can't go out and spend it. We hired a bunch of new people and rearranged some departments so SUPPOSEDLY after next week we should be all caught up and not doing 20+ hours of overtime every week. According to the Head Boss Lady though, we don't have that much overtime. In our staff meeting yesterday she says she's sorry to make us work the weekend again but "it's not usually like this, this is the first time we've had mandatory weekend overtime 2 weeks in a row". Um..... 2 weeks in a row? We've been on mandatory weekends for about 9 weeks now. Oh well, hopefully shit gets caught up and I can have a life again.

In other work news, I emailed Andrew (my video Boss) over a week ago about a raise, he still hasn't emailed me back, so I am over that. I really was sick of the weddings anyway, especially for what I was getting paid, and I don't even have time to do them, plus I am making more than enough money at Fiserv, so sucks for him.

Lastly, I did have a semi-life last night. kimmandercool came over for a little bit. We sat on my couch and watched The Simpsons and laughed. To most people that probably sounds boring, but I had a total blast, it's cool to finally meet someone that enjoys just relaxing and watching TV. Kimi is fun times.

As for now I get to go back to work. Woo freaking hoo.

YAY NEW COMICS!! I been looking for these for ages and finally found them.

In other news, work was crazy today, we are rearranging most of our departments, switching managers, making new managers, making new departments, hiring people, and firing people, so everything is crazy hectic. All I know is my job stays the same and I get to keep it, so all is good.

"I crash my car everyday the same way time to let this pass" [Saturday, July 8th, 2006 @ 9:25pm]
[ mood | Amazed ]

So I just got in a little fender bender. How fucking fun, but lets Tarantino this and go back to the beginning.

So I was enjoying some Justice League while playing some New Super Mario Brothers on my DS and I get an IM from kimmandercool saying she was hungry, eventually we decided to get some sushi, so out we headed. Eat eat eat, yum yum yum. We say goodbye and off we go. As I am backing up I hear a quick beep then a bang. Yay accident. Not much happened, I was going maybe 1mph, I didn't even have my foot on the gas. I think dude was speeding through because I checked and saw no one, but alas, we made contact. Dude was surprisingly cool about everything. His car isn"t so badCollapse ), he was just glad no one was hurt and his car was still drivable so he could go out and party. Long story short we exchange info, call the cops, the cop gets there and was all "yeah?" and dude was "uh... we got in an accident...", cop was "yep, and?" and dude was "I dunno, I thought we were supposed to call" and cop says "you have choices, you can settle this yourself, or you can file a report and have it all go through insurance", so dude says "well, yeah, lets file a report" and the cop gets all pissy and fills out his shit. Bottom line is I got no ticket, cop was cool about that, he said "It was a small accident, you know to be more careful, and I'm sure you don't really want a ticket on top of fixing your car". I held back a laugh and said thank you. My new car will be here in a few weeks and there is like no damage to my car, so like hell I'm fixing anything.

Anyway, the shit that really gets me is all the shit that goes into the making of an accident, all the minute coincidences that go into. Such as follows:

*I have know Kimi via the myspace for about 2 years I think, we have discussing hanging out before, but nothing ever came of it, well today we finally went and did something. So that got me out of the house to begin with.

*We were going to go to Bonzai, but they were closed for a private party, so we went across the street to Thai Thai, which put me in the accident location

*Our server was shit and took forever to get us anything, and when we went to pay he was no where to be found, so we searched him down to pay so we could leave. We walked to her car, quick hug and good bye, then I walked to my car, started it, backed up and CRASH. Had we waited for our server to come get our money, had we had a faster server, had we said a longer/shorter good bye, it could've been missed.

It is just insane all the tiny little things that go into effect to put you in that one spot for that one moment to cause an accident. It completely amazes me how everything that happens, no matter how small, can have a bigger impact down the line. The universe is amazing.
