How do your

"How do your prepay plans do?" That's a question I was just asked. I can't wait to get out of this shit hole job. I don't even know what the hell she was asking me.

With the exception

With the exception of the jogging incident, it was a pretty good night last night. After work I went home to a home cooked meal, then out to Circuit City to buy up a few DVDs, including American Splendor, Kill Bill, and Ghostbusters. I got an introductory...

Yesterday was a

Yesterday was a good day filled with good yard work. I spent the morning digging a trench and the afternoon filling it back up with sand and laying down a nice little retaining wall for a flower bed. It looks pretty good, but I'll probably end up redoing a...

Nine working days

Nine working days left selling cell phones, and I'm hating every minute of it. Of those 9, six are days at Northwoods, which pisses me off.

Yard work today

Yard work today, which I love. Love, love, love. Saturday night was my family's Easter thing, so Jaimee and I headed to Brimfield to my sister's house for dinner with Sarah, Robert, Jack, Peter, Mom, and Dad. Jack is the cutest little guy in the whole...

I'm into my

I'm into my last 2 weeks at work now and hating every minute of it. My last 2 weeks will be spent almost exclusively at Northwoods, including an 11 hour shift on Wednesday. Which sucks. So yesterday I went out with Wolford and Jaimee to dinner at Agave....

I just got

I just got a call from Illinois Mutual about my new position. They're setting up both a PC and a Mac for me to use and needed a list of software I'll need for each. This is so weird to be getting back into my field and putting in requests for thousands of...

I just bought

I just bought a bunch of sweet ass toys from eBay from other countries. A 2" Optimus Prime from Japan, a 20" Optimus Prime from Canada, and a Superman and Batman set from China. I love eBay and the toys she gives me, but I hate waiting. Especially when...

I just sneezed

I just sneezed so hard it hurt my chest. Yesterday was the laziest day ever, and it rocked. Jaimee and I had been planning it for a while, since between all of our yard work and real jobs and whatnot, we haven't had much time with just the 2 of us to be...

Had lunch with

Had lunch with the old man today at Avanti's where we discussed my plans to buy a motorcycle. See, I've been tooling around in Jeepy for over 3 years now, and before Jeepy I owned a Camaro. I miss the fast cars and fast corners, but have been too broke to...

It's been a

It's been a long few days. Thursday I did yard work, then I went to work, then I went to Jimmy's to celebrate my new job. Friday I did yard work, rescued Jaimee's dog when it ran away, then went to work, then out to Donnelly's. Today I did a shit-ton of...

You know I've

You know, I've always been a big believer that everything happens for a reason. There's been times where that's harder to believe than other times. But let me tell you a story about when some of the worst news I'd heard turned into some of the...

Hour 6.5 into

Hour 6.5 into my 11 hour work day, and I'm so bored I could vomit. I'm also hungry. Still no word on the job that I may or may not have. Hopefully there's a message on my answering machine when I get home, but if not, I still have faith I'll hear a yes or...

My foot is

My foot is healing up nicely, but Jaimee and I decided that a trip to Ikea may not be the best thing to do with it half-broken and all. She's up in Naperville visiting Ikea sans me, and I'm down here finishing up yard work I didn't get done because I...

So it was

So, it was a long ass day of yard work. After breaking a shovel, an axe, and bending a pick axe on the bushes, I decided there had to be an easier way to remove the stumps. I haven't figured out what that way is, but I will. I decided to take time off...

Jesus I hate

Jesus, I hate today. I hate customers. Every fucking customer is a god damn idiot, I swear to God. Today a guy asked me how to unlock an AT&T phone to use on T-Mobile. I answered "We're Verizon, so I haven't the foggiest idea." Another asked me how our...

Alright so first

Alright, so, first things first. My second interview was today and it went pretty well, although not as long as the first one was. I also don't feel quite as good about the second as I did about the first, mostly because of the length. But it was good. I'm...

I got my

I got my new phone, and it's awesome. The pictures it takes are way better than my old one. Look [here][1] and check out the last pic I sent there. Neat. Uh, what else? The house is taking shape, and I'm spending a lot of time in the yard lately. This...

To everyone who

To everyone who kept their fingers crossed for me, or prayed for me, or simply wished me well... thank you. I got a call for a second interview at what will possibly be the best job in the world. Today is horror movie day. Today I get a new camera phone....

What a damn

What a damn weekend, right? Friday night I worked until 7:00, then called up pretty much everyone I know in an effort to find someone to eat pizza with me. No one was home or everyone had eaten. I went home, sad and hungry, and looked for something to...
