Me: I need to take a shower.
Katie: Me too.
Me: Are you dirty?
Katie: Oh yeah. Can you clean me?
Me: Oh yeah, I'll give you the "white wash".
It took her like 30 seconds to get that and then she started hitting me and it was hilarious.
I need to find this Girls Gone Wild with Snoop Dogg in it. Maybe there'll be less begging and pleading on the guys' behalf this time!
Katie found this great porn video of some chick getting screwed while sucking dick and there's this LOUD sucking sound the whole time until she stops sucking and turns to another chick (also getting fucked and who was pulling the first chick's hair while she was going down on the guy) and starts spitting hot jizz all over her face. It's a riot! Look it up for comedic value! "XXX - Goth Gangbang, Aggressive!.mpg"
That's what I felt like for most of the day. Complete shit.
I had to be at Target by 6am. 6 in the fucking morning. It sucked ass but I got trained on how to put out the ad signs, something your typical idiot employee isn't trusted with.
And it made me think of something, Target gives me responsibility. I have a chance of getting promotions and shit at Target. And whenever I help someone out or even when I'm just doing what I'm supposed to do, someone thanks me. I hear "Thanks for helping us _fill in the blank_ today, Brian. Great job!" at least 4 or 5 times a day. And it makes me feel like what I'm doing is appreciated. And while working at Target isn't my favorite job ever, I'm beginning to enjoy it more than working at Gamestop because of these things.
Working at Gamestop is getting complicated. Shane being fired, Ryan being promoted, the new guy kind of being a dick, and the last string of new people John's hired being terribly unreliable are starting to add up. There's no fucking chance of me going anywhere in the company either, since I'm not a stool pigeon. And I think Chris and Krista are fucking great but I've gotta think about myself sometimes. So I think I'll be putting my two-weeks in at Gamestop soon. I get 10 hours a week there, new people are being hired for more than I get paid there, and the job's just not as fun as it used to be.
I'm just waiting for my Collector's Edition of Robotech: Battlecry to come out first. There's no chance in hell I'd pay full price for that and John doesn't believe in letting people work their last two weeks. And once I'm done there, I can get 40 hours a week at Target getting paid more than I do at Gamestop, I'll get at least 2 actual days off work a week as opposed to days where I only work one job, and the stress of rearranging my schedules around each other will go poof.
This started out as an entry for me to bitch about my day, really. So let's finish this; I passed out for 3 hours after I got home from work. I was fucking tired and I had a headache. Katie made me dinner (because my girlfriend is the best) and we watched Blow on Starz. It was a pretty good movie. Pee-wee Herman fucking rules. And I just watched the last hour of 13th Warrior on Sci-Fi which made me realize that I need more mindless viking action DVDs. And now it's 10 and I should go to bed but I don't feel shitty for the first time today so I don't think I will.
I have DSL. Oh yes. My own DSL line. They want me to leave the connection up for the first 10 days so they can gauge how much bandwidth I can handle which is just fine by me, the more the merrier! And then after the 10 days I'm going to hook up the router and everything wiill be A-OTAY!
But now I must shower before I go off to work.
Today in sociology we talked about how pointless life is when all you do is work and get ready for work. Whenever you're not working, you're making sure you're ready for work the next morning and it never seems to end and the only one getting any benefit from it is your employer. And it was a rather depressing afternoon.
I spent the whole night at Target. I got to work in my FAVORITE area, Health and Beauty supplies. I fucking hate Health and Beauty.
And then I come home and I find out that I'm a dick. I'm a dick for having my computer passworded at startup. I'm a dick for not telling Katie that I'll be working all morning Saturday and potentially through the whole time period when we're supposed to be adopting a couple of cats. And for this I'll be sleeping under the warmth of towels on the couch tonight.
This is what I come home to tonight. 7 hours of work at a shitty job to hear about how I'm a motherfucker for wanting my computer to be my own space and for not bailing out on a Saturday morning shift because I'm somehow supposed to know when she wanted to go adopt cats. And I wonder if the rest of my life is going to be like this because this is awfully fucking depressing. What if this IS the rest of my life? Doing shit that no one cares about with nothing to keep me wanting to do this any longer. What's the fucking point?
ten minutes later: Okay, maybe I'll forget it. Maybe I'll just crawl into bed, hope she doesn't notice, and try to get to sleep. Maybe everything will be a-okay tomorrow morning.
It's too damn early in the morning for this much comedy.
Katie's playing Silent Hill 2 right now. I love that game. If Katie wouldn't kill me for doing it, I'd change my name to James Sunderland. And she can change her name to Mary and we'd live at our estate, Silent Hill. Silent Hill 3 comes out in a mere 4 months. I'm just a little excited. Nick (of "Chester the Molester" fame) came into work last night looking for a good playstation 1 game. He left with Silent Hill. Not only is it a good game, it's right up his alley in the first place. Silent Hill 3. 4 months. Can time please go faster???
I need to make my own shack-ish spoiler tags. So I can go nuts with the Silent Hill 2 and Watchmen discussion.
I've finally gotten around to putting together all the parts of my computer. The webcam (which I'll NEVER update), the scanner, the Nostromo n50 SpeedPad. And Katie's telling me it's time for bed.
What the fuck is horny goat weed?
It's true. My back is fucking killing me.
Harmony of Dissonance is a wonderful, wonderful game. And on Tuesday, Edd is selling me his N64 (provided it's in good shape) with an expansion pack for $11. So now I can finally enjoy the games my friends went nuts and paid out their asses for at a much lower price and only a couple years late.
I'm going to arbitrarily ask for a couple days off soon. From both jobs. I need time to relax a little. And they'll probably occur after Robotech: Battlecry comes out so I can enjoy the fruits of my labor.
I'm going to have to seriously rework this digital cable thing. All the cool movies are either on HBO or Cinemax. Starz and Encore keep showing shit I've never heard of or don't give a damn about. Not to mention I still need to look into satellite and tivo, as per Katie's brother's suggestion. Everyone I've talked to say satellite is cheaper and Katie and I can get the local channels we like (NBC, FOX) perfectly clear with an antenna.
So everyone keeps asking me when they can come over and see Katie and I's place. Well we're working on it! Our living room is almost presentable but our kitchen could use some cleaning/organizing and so could the rest of the house. And I need to get some posters framed (LAURI!) so our walls aren't so naked. Namely, the Clockwork Orange poster Matt got me for my birthday a couple years ago, the Radiohead poster Katie got me for one of our anniversarys (six months, a year, something goofy I think), and the Poe poster we won off ebay. I'm thinking the Clockwork Orange and Radiohead posters are going in my room and Katie will probably want Poe in our bedroom or the living room because Poe is dead sexy.
I'm also thinking of some new furniture. I want a futon couch for my room. Katie hates futons but I think they're just great and I could a place for taking a nap that isn't the couch in the living room or our bed. And I'm still moving stuff over. I brought over 4 boxes full of stuff like CDs, game guides, and video tapes this weekend and I still need to get probably 4 or 5 more as well as my CD tower, my dresser, my nightstand, and my bookcase (as well as the books all over it).
I'm going turn AIM on now, after I save this. My computer hates this dial-up shit and keeps crashing because of IRQ conflicts with the modem. Thank god DSL gets turned on in 5 days.
So crazy stuff happens when I disappear for a few days. Cable man was on time. REALLY on time. And now we've got wonderful cable and movie channels but I think I'll ditch the Starz channels because they suck and get HBO instead. HBO always seems to be showing something good while I deal with Josie and the Pussycats 3 times a day.
A week from today, my DSL gets turned on. Now where's my fucking installation package!?!?
Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is possibly as good as Symphony of the Night. It's almost just like playing SotN as Richter even. Add that to my list of reasons why I haven't had time to sit here and write shit.
Katie came up with the GREATEST idea ever. When we own our own "estate", we're naming it Silent Hill. And we also came up with the idea of a "silent" porno. Both are possibly the best thinking we've done all year.
From the Gamestop department, still working on severely tarnishing Ryan's glowing image to John. Wednesday Chris found out that not only did he do a REALLY shitty job of making sure recovery was done (it looked like they didn't even vacuum), he didn't file any of the paperwork. Cue 2 write-ups.
And last night he offered me and the new girl a used N64 system (no power cables, no video cables, no controller, just the deck) and two used SNES's (in the same condition) and said we could just take them if we wanted because he had to get rid of them. Sounds fishy but I took the N64 and Ryan ended up just tossing away the SNES's. And so this morning I paid a visit to Chris while I was out depositing my Target paycheck and let him know. His reaction? "I should call John about that. Those were supposed to be field-destroyed." Oh really? Well, I've got the N64 at home, the SNES's are probably long gone into the garbage system, and Rachel was there for the whole thing. Here's to another part-time job opening at Gamestop.
Maybe I'm bitter. Maybe I'm vindictive. But Ryan's a dickhead in the first place and he can go fuck himself.
The cable man shows up today, between 12 and 4. Finally, some quality entertainment! Okay, so I'll at least get my Cartoon Network fix and my Comedy Central, and FINALLY, my Sci-fi Channel and Starz package! WOO HOO!
I forgot that my computer science teacher wasn't going to be here today. I'm the only one here in the lab right now. One of the middle-age people was here before but he left and that's good because he talks too much and I never say a word to him.
My back is killing me. I think today will be a day where I won't HAVE to move anything and that's fucking great because I'm in a hell of a lot of pain.
I miss having DSL. I haven't even hooked up my computer yet. I should do that, it's probably getting bored. And when I get it hooked up, I can keep playing Icewind Dale! Frank helped me drag all of my computer, stereo, VCR, PS2, and Gamecube crap over to my house last night so I've got all of that waiting for me in my "office". It's the 2nd bedroom but it's MY office because that's where all my cool stuff is going.
If I have one complaint about my new place it's that there aren't enough fucking power outlets. WE NEED MORE POWER, CAPTAIN!
Until the 27th. So any entries I make will be from the computers at school, which means nothing except that I won't be able to do anything on weekends. Oh and no one do anything interesting. I don't like reading journals or diaries from public computers. And I won't be able to check Camwhores but that's okay, Camwhores sucks now anyway.
Tuesday is going to be the busiest day ever. Cable guy comes to install our cable between 12 and 4 and the carpet cleaner comes sometime to clean all the carpets.
I don't have a hell of a lot to say because this weekend has been so fucking crazy and now I'm tired and sore and I still have to move all of Katie's stuff out of her apartment.
