So today was awesome. I was off work, and did absolutely nothing productive. Friday night before I went to bed, I put my phone on silent and threw it across the room, so no one could bother me and wake me up. I even put a note on my door that said "DO NOT WAKE ME UP FOR ANY REASON!". This was necessary because last weekend I tried to sleep in, and the parents kept coming in and asking me questions about trying to tell me stuff. I woke up around 11ish then kicked on the tv for about an hour. After that, I really couldn't tell you all that I did, but I am positive that it was most assuredly unproductive. Later that evening I did manage to clean up my room. I discovered that there was carpet under all my junk. Amazing! Tonight I went out with my dream girl and a couple friends to San Miguel (mexican restaurant) and ordered CHEESE DIP, among other typical Mexican dishes. They all taste the same to me. Btw, I don't care what part of the country you're in, it was in the 50's tonight, and it was flippin' freezing. After we willingly tore up our stomachs by eating that food, we went back to Jarred's house and my dream girl gave me one of those scratching/head rub things. For the less fortunate, it's almost as relaxing as watching Bob Ross paint happy trees. Yeah, I totally went there. bwahaha. So let me tell you what sucks. Tomorrow morning, I have a meeting at Best Buy at 6AM!!! Of all the horrible things in the world, this is the worst. Let me tell you what does NOT increase company morale: that'd be 6am meetings. I wanna burn that mother father to the ground sometimes. Anyways, I need to go count sheep. Don't interrupt me or I'll lose count. kthx.
So I pretty much haven't even thought about writing anything in livejournal for a loooong time. Well, the situation I'm in right this very second is an unusual case, so I figured it was blog-worthy. Right now, I'm locked outside my house. In fact, I'm sitting on the back porch, freezing, and typing on my laptop which is connected to my wireless internet. Interesting? I thought so. For future notice, it's freaking hard to type when you can't feel your finger tips. BUT, no spelling errors here. boom shacka lacka! So tonight I'm going over to Ocean Springs with my dream girl so she can do her laundry and stuff. It's gonna be interesting. Oh, I forgot to mention. The reason I'm locked outside of my house is...my car's being repaired right now at Firestone...about $450 worth. Fun. Money. Sucks. Tears. k. Anyways, they have my keys. I took my dad's SUV, but just took the car key, not thinking about needing the rest. 10 frozen fingers later, I proved myself wrong. I hope my brother comes home soon and unlocks this mamma jamma. The parentals are in a movie and won't be out until later. My girlfriend is going to murder me dead if i'm not at her apartment by 6!! My brother better speed. Peace out.
I don't think I've ever been this tired in my entire life, and I can't manage to get to sleep. I've got a million things running through my head right now, and all I can do about it is stare at the ceiling. I just got news of something that I sort of feared for a long time, and it sort of makes me sick to my stomach. It's funny how people think that people think that life will be predictable, easy going, and everyone will be happy...and nothing will change. I'm a victim of that thinking. I'm tired of this emotional roller coaster I keep getting on. I mean...I get tired of people telling me one thing, believing it, then a day later learning something completely and totally different. It really screws with my head. Why on earth is MY life so confusing. It's not fair. I'm the simplest, most what-you-see-is-what-you-get guy in the world. Why I am always the one plagued with all the drama and heartache. I guess I just run myself into the ground with all of this. So much for a good night's sleep.
I really don't want to lose a friend over this. I think we maybe all of us over-reacted a bit. Plus, I hate staying upset at anybody. So, I killed my previous post for now. I know I said a lot of things without knowing the complete "other side of the story." So...things I said may or may not have been true. I hope we'll get through this. This is something that should never have blown up this big. We both have conflicting and completely different personalities....which is probably the reason for that. I hope you both have great days. Dana, I'm sorry about the loss in your family. Hope this weekend isn't too sad for you. Talk to ya'll soon.
So I got off work today at 6ish. I then came home, ate a bite, and watched some of Fight Club. With me so far? Then, in a frantic effort to not waste a monday evening off...I made the trek to my second home: Waffle House. Wait...no that'd be my third home since Best Buy is first....wait, no Ugly Mug is second....err..umm. Hmm. Regardless...I got the usual. Carol was there again tonight. She's been serving the waffle house community since 1993. That's just fantastic. She always seems to be my waitress...and always seem to have the most annoying/funny sounding laught out of any individual I've ever know. WOW. So, I originally planned just to go with my friend Drew...but then Jack called and wanted to hang out, so he went to. However, Drew ended up showing up with two girls that he works with, two sorrority girls. They weren't ugly at all...just a little too....high for me. Yeah, high. Heh. So one of them leaves early and calls back because she's "interested in me" and she wants us to "meet again sometime." Uh oh... She gave me her number...which won't be getting called back. Again, I have that "really high standard for girls" thing going on...and looks isn't everything. Besides, she smokes. Eww. So we hung out in the parking lot and talked for a good while, then I came home. Yay, i didn't waste my monday night completely! By the way, I've had pizza for the last 3 lunches, and waffle house for the past 3 dinners. At this rate I'll probably die before I'm 25. Good times...
*BREATHE* *RELAX* All I can say about today is "wow". I clocked in at Best Buy this morning at 4:45am...and there was already about 400 people in line. It was insanity. I walked outside and asked the first people in line what time they had gotten there. They answered "12:15am"!!!!!!!!! THEY HAD A TENT...A TENT!!!!! It was awesome. I love mad crazy holiday rushes. When the doors opened at 6, the line for best buy had passed the Super Sams, Old Navy, Goody's, AND had wrapped around the side of Barnes and Noble....SO, if you had been in line...from say 4am...to get one of the computer specials, you had to wait in line for 2 hours for the doors to open, THEN you had to wait about an hour or so just to get inside the store...since the line was so long outside....THEN you had to wait in the computer line for another 2 hours. The thing that just BURNED the customers was that they would have gotten through all of that, then get to the front of the computer line to find out that we were out of the computer specials in the ad. So many threats and cursing....wow. If I had some say in the matter, I would have scheduled more people in my department in the morning. That was the busiest time...and we were shorthanded. The afternoon was easy going, since we had so many employees at that point. I feel sorry for the a.m. ops workers. Their lines wrapped the entire store until about 11am. So many people.... I mean it really is pathetic how people go buy the sale items... I mean...I had customers come up to me with an entire buggy full of the sale items ready to check out, then they would ask me "oh by the way, what is this thing i'm buying," then i would explain it, then they would say "oh well, i really don't neeeeeeed it....but, it's like $5 after rebate....so i'm getting it anyway" ........ Whyyyyy? I don't think I came across one nice customer today. Hmm. So, I left at 4 on the dot. I went home, ate, then took a 2 hour nap...which I had well earned. Then, woke up, headed over to a friends house, then to Ugly Mug (one of the greatest places in the world), then came home...to livejournal. OH, there was some fight or something at the Mug right before I left. Some kid got tackled through the wall. It was nuts. Anyways....enough of my day. It all starts over again for me at 10am too. Lovely.
Why is it that every year I'm completely captivated by the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. That's supposed to be a little kids thing right? Wrong! I'll still be watching it when I'm 50. So I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I made the trek to Fort Walton Beach, Florida this morning. I pigged out with my cousins...ages 2,3,4,10,14,16,19, and of course all the aunts and uncles. It was fun. Little kids can wear you out...but they're fun to play with :) I should post some pictures on here...hmm. Anyways, so I ate more than intended. It was the seconds on dessert that really pushed me over the top. After lunch, I passed out for an hour watching Indiana Jones on tv. Those movies come on tv without fail on every major holiday. It's funny.
So, it's officially almost-Christmas time. That means...Christmas music!! However...I've got to wake up at *gasp* 4:15am tomorrow to go in to Best Buy early. Man, it's going to be crazy. And for all of you that are planning on waiting in Best Buy's line tomorrow morning...Bundle up! It's supposed to be in the 30's. *BURRR* So...everyone, Happy Turkey Day.
So it's a Tuesday night, well Wednesday morning. There is nothing fun that's open late on weekdays. Tonight my evening was filled with a short shift at work. Really, I'm not even sure why I went in. Employees outnumbered customers by a good bit. So...I went home. When I tried to think of something entertaining to do, only one place came to mind. WAHO!...aka Waffle House. Man, our waitress was great. I forget her name. Haha, she has quite possibly the worst laugh I've ever heard in my entire life. HAHA. Oh wow, I haven't laughed that hard in who knows when. Drew kept making fun of her in conversations with her. He goes there a LOT and know her fairly well. It hurts to think about it. I've gotta go back there again tomorrow. I went to Wal-mart after waho with the same group of people. Maybe I'm crazy, but I don't think my parents would have ever taken me shopping at Wal-mart when I was a toddler at 1am. I was suprised to see a couple families with 2 and 3 year olds running around that late. Hmm. Annnyways. That basically concluded my evening, since we couldn't think of anywhere to go after that.
On a side note, girls are way to confusing. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to be so sweet to girls. Is it wasted effort? Do they even care? I get tired of guessing games. *sigh* I'm still hoping to one day find that girl who can be as sweet to me as I am to her...or at least tries to be. Hmm. I wonder if a girl like that even exists. I think this whole conversation is proof that I listen to too much emo music. Also, back to the whole "I sometimes overthink things too much" post....maybe I do/am. Anyways, three cheers for midnight at the Waffle House. I'm off work the next two days. Hip hip...
So it's monday....wait, tuesday. I'm just now getting home from work...note that it's past 4am. I went in at 1:30pm, with a small break in between. Great scott!! I definitely have to wake up for class in ohhh 4 hours, oh and there's a test too. So yeah, I stayed up at work setting up computers for the after-Thanksgiving sales. Work goes so much easier when there's no customers there to annoy/bug me. I just love how all the other colleges out there get out a whole week for thanksgiving. Not good ol' USA. *sigh* I guess I'll be heading to bed now. Man i've got a lot of sleep to make up. I've averaged 4 hours of sleep the last 3 nights...but with the amount of caffiene drinks I've chugged, it probably makes it more like 7 hours. heh. Peace out.
So today was verrry interesting. So...let's recap. I was up reaaaaaly late last night...and completely managed to sleep through 2 different alarms that went off 5 times each. Yeah, I was out. AND, my 16 year old brother managed to sleep through his alarm too...and missed some really important field trip haha. I laughed forever when I woke up and saw him still here. hahaha. Anyways...so, because I have really cool friends in the class I slept through, they took the quiz I missed for me. Horray! I slept until about noon, then showered and met some folks at Moe's (it's such a great place to eat...wow). After that, I drove up to Best Buy with Drew, then we headed to Guitar Center. Man...that place just makes me wish I was in a band. Depressing :( Drew dropped about $350 in $1's on some new drum equipment. I still can't figure out how we fit all that stuff in my compact car. Goodness. So....after all that, we came back home and watched tv. Eventually, he went home, and I saw "Across the Sunset." It was a fairly decent movie. I'd give it 3.5/5 *'s. Later that night, I went out and played a little bit of poker with some guys from work. I definitely was the chip leader the entire night. You can't touch this. bwahah. On the way home, it was SOOOOOO foggy. I couldn't see a THING. Like...I had to stop at every intersection because I couldn't see what color the light was on the other side. It was sad. So...that's my glorious Friday evening. Tomorrow's the Alabama/Auburn game, and guess who's working? This guy. OHH, and tomorrow is 70's-80's day. I have this horrible disgusting jean jacket i'm gonna wear. Good times. But for now, I must sleep. Ciao.
