New phone and stuff


I checked out the Verizon website today to see if there were any specials on the phones I am interested in and I ended up order an EnV2 because it only ended up being $29.99 out of pocket. I can't wait to get it. So send me your phone numbers!

Last night Andy and I went to meet some of his new classmates. That was nice. We walked to the one girl's apartment and spent a few hours talking with 6 other law students. It started storming while we were there and we walked back home in a light mist of rain. It was nice but I was really tired by the time we got home, as it was about 10:30 p.m.. Andy is going out to meet them all again tonight at a local bar. I opted not to go because I have to get ready for the interview tomorrow.

As to the interview, I am going to make sure my portfolio is in order, look up directions (ETA: OKAY, GET THIS, THE GANNETT FLEMING OFFICE IS RIGHT NEXT TO HOLY SPIRIT HOSPITAL. SHEESH), hem my suit pants, compare my experience with their requirements and write down a few questions to ask my interviewers. Any suggestions as to questions I should ask or anything else I should do to prepare?

I have tomorrow off from AutoZone, so that's nice. After the interview, we are heading home. I am excited. I hope it goes well tomorrow.

I'm not dead.

I am glad it is nearly the weekend.

I have been kicking ass and taking names when it comes to sewing for Pennsic. I may actually look like a proper viking for the majority of the time. (Or as proper as Pennsic vikings are... which isn't very, it's just too damn hot to wear layers of clothes. Besides I'm completely improper anyway, odds are I would have been back then too. I just would have been punished for it.)

Speaking of sewing, apparently I may poke my nose into the upholstering arena and see what I can do about redoing a seat cover for a street bike (crotch rocket). Perhaps my calling is really in auto and motorcycle upholstery.

Work is going okay. I tried to tackle the afternoon alone on commercial. Dan played a practical joke on me because I'm still new and don't know anything. I had to hound Ken for help all the time but I did manage to get things done (though I didn't get to leave early because 2:30-4:30 p.m. was crazy). I didn't have a ton of calls but I had a few with some complicated requests that kept me busy. But I think, in the end, everything was okay. And I didn't burn the store down. Dan is really nice and I feel like I could call him for help with anything (he's in commercial at a neighboring store). I thanked Ken profusely before I left tonight and apologized for being a pain. He swore at me and asked me what I expected after a week there, perfection? I am on commercial tomorrow by myself all day. I am worried. Mostly because Ken won't be there. I'll be stuck with Ray (the store manager), old man Dan (my driver) and HeeHaw (yet another Dan but redneck does not even come close to describing this boy). I could always call Dan from the other store though, and I expect he'll call me a few times throughout the day to see how I am doing and offer his help.

Apparently Verizon changed their new every two deal and now one can only get $50 towards a new phone but you can get that after 20 months instead of 24? They just didn't bother to tell people about this, I guess. Lame. But it does mean that I could go get a new phone now instead of waiting until October, which is cool. It just sucks that I only have a $50 credit to do so. I'm not sure how their online deals differ from their in-store deals but phones that are in my price range (besides another Chocolate, which I am not sure I want) are the Juke, the Moto and the VX9400. I'd like the EnV2 but I don't necessarily have $50 to put towards a phone. What to do, what to do.

TEXT ME


My cell phone (LG Chocolate) has slowly been sucking out more and more lately. The battery has just stopped holding a charge. One short call completely drains it. My New in Two dealie comes around in October, so I'll be able to get a new phone then (Verizon has a deal where you get $100 towards a new phone every 2 years.). But until then I have transfered my number to another older phone that we had. This one is one of my mom's old phones that she didn't use for long at all. And it has a car charger, which I didn't have for the chocolate. Unfortunately, I can't use my blue tooth with it. But I'm not sure that will work anymore anyway as I accidently sent it through with a load of laundry the other day.

Anyway, my point is that I don't have people's phone numbers in my new/old phone, so send me a text (don't forget to let me know who it's from), so that I can save your number into this phone. If you don't have my number and want it, let me know.
