Ok, so this past week has been pretty amazing. My girlfriends birthday was on the 6th. I got to officially meet her mom and step dad and some close family friends when I went over for her birthday dinner. I had a lot of fun. Friday we went out for diner and a movie. Had some great food at Waterstone and saw 50/50, which was an amazing movie. I got my car back from the shop. Still don't have AC but I can drive again. Which is good.
Yesterday I got to meet Hannah's dad and her step mom and all of their dogs and even some of their goats. :) it was really fun.
So, maybe passing out on the couch wasn't the best idea. Or maybe it was the decision to check out what was going on with the whole Adventure Time / Frederator / Cartoon Network drama before going back to sleep... If you don't know Frederator (the animation company which dies AT) does a weekly YouTube recap video, and in this one they shied some Princess Bubblegum / Marceline fan art and hinted that maybe Marceline likes PB like, more than a friend. There was a big thing that Cartoon Network made them take it down, and now all of the recap videos are down. The head of Frederator said on his blog that it was their decision to correct a mistake they made by going a little overboard with stuff from the fan community and they we not forced to take it down by either CN or the AT crew. I really hope that is the case because I don't want to be pissed at CN. They are usually cool and willing to push the envelope.
Also if it was just the guys at Frederator having some fun with themes running a mock in the fan community then that's cool. The drama was over the thought that the writers wanted to maybe explore a PB / Marceline relationship and CN aced it. That I would have a problem with, as I think that we should be abler to have a cartoon in America where a character has a non heterosexual relationship.
I am listening to the Sword & Sworcery LP: Ballad of the Space Babies by Jim Guthrie. Damn it's good. Seriously, if you have an iOS device, you owe it to yourself to check out Superbrother's Sword & Sworcery EP It is a really excellent adventure game and has some of the best music ever. if you don't, you should just check out the music Here.
Well damn, it's 5:00 in the morning. I guess I should really go to sleep. I want to be able to be awake tomorrow. Saturday I have a lot of work to do and the same on Sunday. I have a lot of math to get caught up on and it takes me FOREVER. Also I have some reading to get done for geology. Need to try to take care of that as early as possible.
Seriously. I am going to try to start using my live journal more often. Hopefully I can convince move of my friends to come back to LJ because I really loved the social blogging atmosphere. We had a good thing going on here. So yeah, let's use live journal some more.
Anyway. Short update. School is going good. I am taking geology this semester and really enjoying it. Looks like I may be taking oceanography next semester with the same professor. That would be cool.
It's getting a bit late and I have a lot of homework to knock out tomorrow. Too much math to get caught up on. Plus some geography reading I really should get started on.
So. I haven't heard from you today. This makes me sad. I miss you. Is it sad that even a silly text would make me feel better at this point? The only part that realy bothers me is that you were suppsed to be back today and when I called you your phone was off.
I hate my national manager. How do you start off asking what our offices expected hours are for the week. Then question them. Then tell me that since I sent them up our office is committd to hit those hours no matter what. When he knows damn well how high a turnover rate we have.
When you ask for expected hours I give you that. EXPECTED. That's not a definate ammount. That an estimate.
This job daily brings me into contact with people that fill me with disgust, fear, contempt, and occasionaly pity. But seriously, how do you graduate high school and not know how to read? How do you have nasty forty teeth when you are 20 years old and not find some way to go to a dentist? I mean I understand cavities, but when you come in wearing your expensive brand name urban clothing and your bling and have teeth rotten and broken into nasty little jagged points looking like something from a old REN AND STIMPY episode, I think your priorities are seriously mixed up.
anyway, its that time of year, Christmas. the Season of Giving, Compassion, and Love.
Being stuck in a Hospital sucks. Doubly so when you are there at Christmas time. ChildsPlay is a charity that helps get toys and video games to kids in Children's Hospitals around the world at Christmas time which helps make these kind of stays a lot less like hell and a lot more like life should be for them.
help out. even if its only a few bucks through paypal. you will feel good about it and i guarantee some kid will as well.
it wont cure cancer, but it will brighten up a kids life at a really tough time.
man do i need to learn. if i gotta wake up EVERY morning at 7am maybe i need to go to sleep a little earlier. last night i was sooo dead tired i fell asleep on the couch over at the HER at around 11:30
i have a terrible headache right now. and i really with it would go away.
cause i dont like it.
i never got around to posting about thanksgiving but it was pretty good. dinner here was great, and then when me and robbie and ivan went to my moms even that went pretty good.
last night i saw Rush Hour 3 with Stephanie. I love the entire Rush Hour series. i need to watch Rush Hour 2 again. i saw Rush Hour 1 earlier last week, but i haven't seen 2 in a good while. all very funny movies.
Burger King has these York Peppermint Patty pies that i just found out about. they are amazingly good.
i am so glad i didnt have to wake up at 7am today.
Wednesday i went over to Jeffreys house after work to ear Bear Stew. it was goooood! watched Talladega Nights and basically hung out with Jeffrey, Cullen, Drew and Charlie.
Thursday i took off early from work and went with my boss michelle to go see my co worker jason's band Hambone and the Bearcats at the drowsy poet. it was interesting. they are at the least very amusing. and i got out of work for it, so that is good.
Friday i had off from work and got to sleep in a bit. after that i drove all over trying to find a copy of Puzzle Quest for the DS, unfortunately nowhere had a copy. so i had to break down and buy a copy online.the only real downside to that is that i gotta wait for it to come in. however good shipping was pretty cheep so it should be here tomorrow. yay for that, cause Puzzle Quest is realy addictive. its like Bejeweled with an RPG character building element and a story line thrown in there. as if Bejeweled-ish game play wasnt addictive enough as it is, they throw in spells that affect game play, armor and weapons and other items that affect the game play and oh i know this game is gonna be bad for me. ^_^
Friday evening i went to see war with Stephanie, Karen and Karen's Roommate Ana, and i thought it was pretty good. Jason Statham war great in it. Jet Li was as two dementional as he is in most of his english speaking roles unfortunately. the plot twists were good though and so was the action. i would definatly watch the movie again. wasnt the best, but it was good.
Saturday i worked from 8:30 - 5:00 then came home and relaxed for a bit and then went to the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra thing, A Clutch of Concertos. it was pretty much amazing. i wasnt too big on the Organ Concerto by Handel but i loved Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 1. Alycia Hugo, the soloist was great. and then they played Spring and Winter from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The Four Seasons are among my favorite classical pieces and Spring is probably my favorite among them, it is just so powerful. and Akemi Takayama who played the violin solos was amazing.
Saturday evening after the LSO thing i went and played Halo a bit with Ash, Jeff Dunnaway and Emily. Legendary is seriously annoying with a crapload of them skulls on.... i also started what has turned into a baking spree...
Sunday i went to church with Stephanie and then came home and started baking some more... i swear i think i am addicted to making brownies... Sunday was spent baking, playing halo and just hanging out. Ash was here when i got back from church and Jeff Dunnaway came over, left then came back, then Jeff Carey came over and when Ash went to his meeting at work me Jeff Jeff and Emily went to Walmart and Target then came back and made Smoothies. why they wanted me and Jeff Carey, who have no idea how to make smoothies, to be in charge of their making i do not know. we made a tremendous mess and had to alter our smoothie mix and pour most of it out and half start over a ton, but the end result was something not altogether unlike a smoothie and it was pretty good tasting. Jeffrey and Cullen came over later in the evening and we finally ended up watching the Second Fantastic Four movie. it wasnt bad but i cant say it was good either. the writing was terrible.
lack of updates. been a lil busy. not enough to warrant my total lack of updating. that is pure laziness.
my car should be unbroke this week.jet li is gonna help me get the alternator out so i can get it checked out. this is good. i dont mind driving the jeep, but i miss my car.
i finished reading Angels & Demons and am now reading The Da Vinci Code. i likes. ^_^
been managing to play a bit of halo 3 online and this is also good.
also watched Superman Returns finally. i liked it a lot. Superman II is still my favorite of all the Superman movies though. i am a lil bit iffy on the ending of Superman Returns, but other than that i liked it a lot.
my new job thing is going well, i am learning all the office stuff pretty quickly and actually kind of enjoy some of it. it is much better than calling people on the phones, and starting this week i am going to be working 40 hrs a week, which will be a very good thing for mr. paycheck. i am really looking forward to being able to save up some money. not just saving up to buy something specific, but just saving. like in having a savings. this will be good. it will make me feel a lot better about myself if i can have some money in the bank and not have to do the whole paycheck to paycheck thing.
So here’s how it works: Open your choice of music player and put it on shuffle. Press play. For every question type the song that’s on. And when you go to a new question press the next button. No cheating. Ready? GO!
