Words n booze

If you’re curious, the script is been updated.

Weekend was a mixed bag. Friday didn’t do shite. Gloom had to work that night so I thought about heading out to Acrop solo. Ended up doing shite.

Saturday first plans fell through, ended up hitting the Magic Garden after work, which was cool, mostly. One of the old strippers came out of retirement (surprise, surprise) and it was good to see her again, even if she was pissy b/c the bartender wouldn’t turn the music up.

Then to Rialto where I ended up heading out with one of the bartenders and two of his homies. Much Old Granddad was drank and some chicks were talked to. Didn’t get anywhere but I don’t think I embarassed myself so it’s call good.

This week I have three 7am starts, including one on Saturday. Is poopy, dawg.

I just made my mom buy tickets to Cats all by herself. And I had to get kinda mean to do it.

Once she stopped freaking out she found it pretty easy. Funny how that works, eh?

Now, do I do my reading for Electrical II or do I watch an episode of Gray’s Anatomy?

School?

TV?

I am a few hours away from being three weeks behind on GA.

Hmmmm.

Registered for most of my classes last night. My trade classes, specifically. I’m going to hit one of my approved electives, probably the one that will also fulfill the last of my general education requirement as well. But I want to talk to an advisor, first.

Might have mentioned before, to complete this degree in two years (which is pretty much the point of associate degrees) one must attend full time all eight terms. Yikes. But a good deal of the credits from the last time I attended PCCcarry over, specifically the general education component. That’s 14 credits I don’t have to take, on a 90 credit program. Pretty sweet, no? So I figure I’m going to need to take some summer classes to graduate in June of next year (when I’ll be 33, *sob*), I just need to find out how many. Hopefully just two or three, because that’s all I can afford since I’ll be out of student loan money for this year by then.

Oh, shite, I need to apply for next year, and finish my taxes! Ay yi yi.

My bike is at the shop again because: it’s still making a funny noise; I think I broke the shifter getting it into and/or out of Gloom’s car; someone decided it would be funny to walk off with the rear tire while I had it at the MAX station. Which is what happens when you leave something out. They have bike lockers at the station but whoever did the purchasing didn’t get ones that would take a bike lock, and while I was trying to find my combination lock, well, y’know. I think I might find a way to leave the bike in my real bike locker downtown. Since I’m paying for it and all.

Today when I went on my lunch break the kitchen manager covered me.

The KITCHEN MANAGER was washing dishes.

Wow. Words don’t suffice. Wow.

Have any of you seen this? Run, don’t walk, no, don’t run, fly, sprint MOVE AS FAST AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN TO THIS WEBSITE!

You give it some favorite performers or songs and it programs a radio station for you. It’s the best user of the internet since free porn, and I don’t think I’m exaggerating on that. I put in “Counting Crows” and “My Morning Jacket” (I have none of the latter’s albums, I feel shitty about that, the situation must be addressed) and it’s already 90% accurate. I did get some Morrissey and Fleetwood Mac, but nothing’s perfect.

Why are you still looking at this? Go to Pandora!!

This is a very good viewpoint and something I’ve really wondered about. Are the qualities that the West dislikes about the practice of Islam integral to the religion, or a result of the Arab culture that generated it?

I think the general manager just mopped something. I hope I never work in a fancy or hip restaurant again!!

Sucking ass today at work. I’m on my lunch break right now, but so far I’ve been Laz E Slackerton. But, proving again that this is a pretty cool place to work, one of the cooks came in to help.

I think I was cocky. Figured I’m a veteran of some crazy ass busy shit. Elmer’s? No problem, it’s cake.

I bet this place thought that was funny. Wiped that smug little grin off my face.

Only scheduled to be here for a little under an hour and a half more, but we got that corporate coming in. So gotta do extra cleaning. Poo.
