So far gone, I’m almost there

-Demolition Man, by Def Leppard.

Well, lords and ladies, it certainly  has been a while. In all actuality, after my previous fairly earth shattering entry, I was a bit apprehensive about writing again.

On that note, I know that Vanessa deleted this from her bookmarks so I’m basically saying it for my own  health, but I’m sorry. I’m not saying I was the only one who said inappropriate things, because we both did, but it didn’t need to get to that level. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss my best friend, but if it’s her choice not to talk to me ever again and she’s happier without me in her life, then I’d rather that’s what she kept doing. I don’t think  not talking at all bothers her as much as it bothers me, but what do I know, I haven’t talked to her since the beginning of January.

Work has been fairly normal. I only get three days a week, but I don’t have to work with the twit. Although, I kind of feel bad because I keep  hoping he’ll do something really bad so he’ll get fired so I can get more hours. What can I say. I never claimed to be nice,  non vindictive, or a good person.

As if it’s news, I need another job, but this time it’s not because I’m not looking, it’s because the shitty economy has severely limited the number of jobs available and the types of jobs people are looking for. Honestly, the last time I saw the classified ads, the employment section was barely a column long. And usually it gets at least a page to itself.

In entertainment news, I have two fairly new tv show obsessions. Heroes, and NCIS. Honestly. NCIS is so amazing my head almost explodes every time I watch it. I have a huge crush on Mark Harmon. He’s hot. It doesn’t matter how old he is. I also have a big crush on Sean Murray (he plays McGee). FREAKING HOT. Oh my god.

In other news, I haven’t been exercising as much as I want to, but I have been exercising more than I used to. Small victories are better than none at all, I suppose.

Back to work matters. Work on Thursday night was strange. For the first two hours, it was extremely busy.  I was starting to get worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up. After that, though, business twittered off. I decided to stay after work to have a couple drinks with Sarah (I think that’s her name; I’m not sure how it’s spelled though), Mitch, and this guy I didn’t know.

We actually managed to have an intelligent discussion about things like the environment. In rural, small town Iowa, it can be difficult to have an intelligent discussion about things like that, so it was quite refreshing.

On Friday, during the day, my brother had a couple friends over to watch a Cher concert dvd which actually surprised me. I didn’t think I liked many songs by Cher, but I found I kept going “Oh, I love that song”. I played MapleStory for the first time in a while, because once again, this computer decided to not work. The keyboard wasn’t working. I had to play musical chairs with which ports the keyboard, mouse, and wireless adapter (this computer gets internet wirelessly) were in, and magically, I found a combination which got everything working. My first attempt got me the keyboard working, but no internet. It was all very frustrating. (Unrelated note: I’m listening to Al Stewart right now, and goddam his voice is sexy).


After my brother’s friends left, I popped in my Def Leppard Rock of Ages greatest hits dvd, and because of that, I was nearly late to work. The roads really sucked. I missed the turnoff for work because the roads were so snowed and iced over I couldn’t see the turning lane until it was too late. So I had to keep going straight, trying to find a place to turn off. When I finally did, I practically slid off the road.

So I wasn’t in a great mood when I got to work.

When I got there, I’m not lying, there were three or four overflowingly full bus tubs. It was one of those days that I barely had time to unload one bus tub when an equally full new one was dropped off. At one time, I had both my bosses helping me, and we were still behind. Michael (he cooks on Fridays and Saturdays; normally he’s just a dishwasher though) helped me out a bit also, and for all the help I was grateful. If I hadn’t had the help, I might still be there. (lol).

Although, there were a few points in the night that were funny. I had a few laughs with one of my bosses, and Mitch decided to throw a snowball at me, which I politely picked up part of off the floor and threw back at him. 😉 I’d put an ice cube down the back of his shirt or something, but I kind of like having all of my limbs unbroken.

Anyhoo. Another funny bit was, he asked me how many times I’d listened to some New Kids on the Block song on my mp3 player (I don’t own any). He also once asked how many Ricky Martin albums I had (Don’t own any of these either), because he likes to poke fun at me musically (and otherwise, for that matter). We might agree on a few things musically, but he generally likes to bitch about what I listen to a lot. I don’t think it’s because he gives a shit, I think he just likes to mess with me. I would rather have friends that can give me shit sometimes, actually.  It’s more fun.

Anyhoo. Today has been pretty fun. I did a bit of shopping with my brother, as I got paid on Friday. (I gave my dad 100 bucks, for last month and this month’s student loan payment). I already had half a tank of gas, but I put like ten bucks worth in anyway. Anyhoo, my brother and I only ended up going to Target and Fashion Bug, but it was a successful day. I bought a tee shirt at Target (a peace sign made of branches, leaves, and the like. I was going to get another copy of my Led Zeppelin tee shirt (because the exact same shirt has been there for two years now), but of course, they didn’t have the same size that my shirt is. They had another Led Zeppelin tee shirt, but I didn’t like it as much.

Anyway, then we went to Fashion Bug. I got a short sleeved hoodie (something I’d been looking for for ages), a brownish blouse (shirt, I don’t know what you’d call it), a pair of sunglasses which I’d needed badly (as I’m always squinting really hard when I have to drive in the day light), and two bras (which I’d also needed really bad). Tomorrow, I’m going to put most of what I have left in the bank to begin building up for moving out.

That’s pretty much all I have to say for now. Well. I’ve said this before, but I’m planning a big blog entry or series of blog entries about music. Things I like and hate about it, and some related media matters. I don’t know exactly when any of you will get to read it, but I may begin the formal draft shortly.

Okay. If any of you have anything to say, feel free to leave me a comment. Toodles. ;D
