Been a while, I guess. Working two jobs since a year ago, last December. Contemplating quitting the gas station and going to school this summer... Or, more recently contemplating taking up running a game store. Not quite sure. Need to get more information before deciding that. I should... do more things.

In other news, job at hotel has been okay. Tom, the manager, had appendicitis earlier this week, but he seems to be okay now. He's growly, in general.
Got my brother-in-law's desktop computer last weekend, and have set it up at work a few times, over night. I take it apart once my shift's up. The ethernet port didn't seem to be working, but I've installed a wireless card, and it works just fine and dandy.
Not much else to report. Things at home are Hell.
Well, I cheated, but I think I could do it.

How very depressing. Over the past three or four years, I've saved up- and subsequently spent, $4608.
It'd help to save up moneys if I didn't get myself canned and then go for a few months without a job, though.

It's a good thing I've finally gotten a job again, because there's another problem to throw money at.
Late in to work today because of flat tire. Changed with a little drunken assistance. But it's okay, 'cause he was a tire guy, it's his thing.
Now doing clerk/night audit at a hotel. It's pretty sweet. Now I just need a laptop so I can play WoW while here.

Well, I am safely arrived. Sort of sprung up at the last moment, but I was asked to come and sit on my sister's baby for a month, and then help them move at the end of that month. One long busride later, and I'm here. Yey.

Well, there's another year of my life done with. Fired from Hamilton's for attendance issues on Wednesday. I think I could have fought it, but some things didn't occur to me until after I'd left, and I don't think I really care that much.
Only thing to really note is that it was one day after I'd started working there, one year ago. Heh.
Car's busted. Dad says that the water pump going out or otherwise just failing caused the accesory belt to skip. In attempting to put the belt back on, I busted the alternator. Don't ask how, it was retarded on my part. Dad also says that the alternater should be spinning freely, and it's sticking. So, it's going bad anyway.
Worst part is, of course, I don't have the stupid thing paid off completely yet.
Oh well, I've managed to save enough I should be okay for a little while. Back to job hunting, I guess!

Well, it's that time of year again. This year I get to go, too.
This will also actually be my first year riding up on my own bike.
That is all, for now.

You are the Hanged Man
Self-sacrifice, Sacrifice, Devotion, Bound.
With the Hanged man there is often a sense of fatalism, waiting for something to happen. Or a fear of
loss from a situation, rather than gain.
The Hanged Man is perhaps the most fascinating card in the deck. It reflects the story of Odin who offered himself as a sacrifice in order to gain knowledge. Hanging from the world tree, wounded by a spear, given no bread or mead, he hung for nine days. On the last day, he saw on the ground runes that had fallen from the tree, understood their meaning, and, coming down, scooped them up for his own. All knowledge is to be found in these runes.
The Hanged Man, in similar fashion, is a card about suspension, not life or death. It signifies selflessness, sacrifice and prophecy. You make yourself vulnerable and in doing so, gain illumination. You see the world differently, with almost mystical insights.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

Tomorrow's the second set of dance lessons I'm taking. I still owe Jen forty-five dollars, but I don't know if I'll be able to manage that. I think I should be able to. Hmm.
Salsa and West Coast Swing are the beginner classes this month.
Just need to remember not to speed on the way home again. Feh.

Well, this is fun. Internet went out some point on Saturday, and then the power a few hours after that. Power came back yesterday around three or four in the afternoon, but still no internet/cable. Oh well.
Had an okay Christmas, and New Years was... entertaining, at least.
Still alive and all that.

Today, I got accused of "instant messaging" at work.
Complete bullshit. Unless tying randomly into notepad now counts as instant messaging.
Okay, so I admit that previously, I'd been caught MU*ing at work, and gotten written up for that. Fine, yes, I did that. I also haven't done it since I was told not to. Big deal.
Apparently, I'm some sort of computer wiz, and any time I might be doing something that is even remotely suspicious, I'm going to get spied on and then terminated, after this write up.
Bunch of crap.

Well, Ed quit work today. Didn't want to be cross-trained on a second program.
That's too bad, he was a nice enough guy. Of course, it was a secondary job for him, I guess.

You scored 7 Violence, 17 Holiness, 42 Reasonableness, and 35 Focus!
You are the most goal oriented of the zombie survivalists: you believe
that all things have a source. And if you can find it: you can get rid
The problem with being this kind is... well, if there is no source.
Because odds are good that you simply look for the center of all the
zombies. And zombie central is NOT a good place to be if you can't stop
My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
|You scored higher than 1% on Violence|
|You scored higher than 88% on Holiness|
|You scored higher than 87% on Reasonableness|
|You scored higher than 64% on Focus|

Was watching Rome on DVD.
J.D. comes down and looks, saying, "Ah, watching Mr. Who? Professor?"
|Friday, July 14th, 2006|
Well, la dee dah. Another one bites the dust, I guess.
And not quite so polite this time, for being a much longer period.
|Thursday, July 13th, 2006|
Well, gave blood again. Still not lightheaded or anything. Bah.
|Monday, July 10th, 2006|
Well, I was having an okay day.
Funny how little, silly things ruin an otherwise good day.
