It's been an

It's been an eventful couple of days, I guess. On Saturday Mullens called me, letting me know that he's been called up from reserve to active duty as of today. Kind of shocking for someone like me who doesn't keep up on the news or have any clue what's...

So my 1

So, my 1,000 hours at the gallery today turned out to be about 9. Not too bad, I guess. I had to return some DVDs I got for Christmas and exchanged them for a ton of old, crappy movies. I got the Sleepaway Camp boxed set, Kung Pow, Big Trouble in Little...

How well job interviews go when you assume you don't have the job.

So, I went in for my 2nd interview at the print place today. It went fairly well with the exception of salary talks. The manager of the place told me that they would offer me $9/hour to start, with the promise that I would move up to $10 within 2 months....

Mystery interview finally revealed.

I was suspicious, and with good reason. They wanted me to sell air purifiers or some such thing. It was a crock. I feel like a chump for even going. Ah well, live and learn. On the other hand, my other interview today went great. I'm pretty sure I'm a...

Welcome back to the land of the working!

Well, not yet, but I'm busy applying to all sorts of jobs today. I just called 1 lady whose ad offers a $1000 sign on bonus and $530/week starting pay. I doubt that I'll get either of those if I get the job, but it's worth a shot. The problem is that I...

Mysterious interview REVEALED! Sort of.

Okay, so I'm back from the mysterious mystery interview, and let me say that I still don't really have any idea what happened while I was there. I got to the office where this interview was to be held and was amazed to see a room full of about 40 people...

Another interview?

That's right, kiddies, I'm on my way to employment! Tomorrow I have 2 interviews. 1 at 4:00 at a company which I actually know what they do. I'll hopefully be a 4 color pressman. The other is the mystery interview part 2 at 5:55. Exciting times.

As noted by

As noted by Bryan and Jaimee's journals, New Years Eve was an excellent time. I got driz-unk and partied like a rock star, all without throwing up. I did comeclose a few times, and I sure did feel really shitty the next morning, but I managed to keep the...

The official weigh-in

The official weigh-in today: 205. That means I did 4 or 5 pounds of damage in the past (almost) 2 weeks. That's not so bad. A small pothole on my way to 170. Starting tomorrow, I'm vegetarian for a week. This time I mean it.

Wow I sure

Wow, I sure am linked from [weird links][1]. junkmachine is finally getting some much deserved publicity. Maybe I should actually update it. [1]: http://www.weirdlinks.com/

Picking up where we left off...

So, Christmas was awesome. I got a lot of great stuff, including an awesome jigsaw that I will put to good use, a Homer action figure, a dust buster, bunches of DVDs, some silverware, and yadda yadda yadda. I've also gone out far too often this week, but...

So I semi-officially

So, I semi-officially weighed in at 200 the other day, which is a loss of a ridiculous 50 pounds in the last 7 months. To celebrate, Jaimee and I went out with a group of people to Hoops. I ate too much pizza and drank too much beer, but had a good time....

I can't decide if this is good or bad.

Yeah, so, I got an email from eBay today, saying an eBay member complained about the Within the Woods VCDs I had for sale, saying I violated a copyright. The eBay user... a mister Samuel Raimi. Can you believe that? So, this email from eBay included Sam's...

Goodbye, facial hair.

So, I'm not quite 200 pounds yet, but I have gotten really sick of my stupid beard and my stupid long hair. So, this morning, I decided to cut it all off. Now I kind of wish I hadn't. I look a lot like how I looked when I was 11 or 12. I've decided that...

Yeah so I

Yeah, so, I kind of have a social life again. And it's with Mullens and Angie, the people who I would have suspected the last people to be friends with if you asked me 6 months ago. We had a falling out, but I've had time to come to terms with the whole...

Holy crap. I

Holy crap. I just fixed my digital camera. It's supposed to turn off when you close the cover, but for the past few years, it hasn't. So it just sucks up batteries and is annoying to use. Since I've been taking stuff apart for fun the past few weeks, I...

Wow...

So, for those of you "in the know", I used to maintain a really, really ridiculously extensive and high-traffic website about the movie Army of Darkness. In it's prime, the site got close to 5,000 visitors a week, and I was kicked off many, many servers...

What an exciting

What an exciting week. I've been putting in more and more time at the gallery. I don't want to, and I don't particularly care if the jobs due get finished on time or not. I go because the people I work with will freak out if I don't, and I stay longer...
