Alright, people, it's that time again. Another year has passed us by, and though I'm not going to be all that busy as we count down to 2005, i figured what the hell, let's do this now.
Entries are arranged as follows:
Date - Title of Entry
"Quote"Any comments from me
Let's do it!
1/3/04 - Two Updates:
"a) Born-Again Sheila: Sheila is a born-again christian who insists on telling people her ENTIRE life story. She told Vicki on the phone when she called to ask us to hold a CD, and when she came into the store I asked her, "Hey, how ya doin'?" like I'm supposed to and she says, "Oh, you don't even WANNA know!" So I said, "OK!" and she replies, "It's not you, it's just I've had the worst holiday!" To which I responded, "You must be Sheila!" and handed her the CD.
b) The older lady I've lovingly named "Sandy Vagina". She came into the store saying that she's only here for the sale and that it's a good thing we're closing because of all the pornography in the records. I rolled my eyes and let her do her business. She browsed for a while, asked a couple questions, and brought her purchases to the counter, including a Christina Aguilera "Stripped" cassette, used to illustrate her point about the pornography. I said, "Well, we don't have any control over what they put on the albums." to which she responded, "Yes you do! You know 75% of people go to hell for sins of the flesh?" She then paid with a check and refused to give her phone number, because it could get out to everybody that way, and she said something about her daughter being a social worker...I tuned her out at this point."I had forgotten about these two ladies until just now...holy fuck we got some weirdos at Strawberries...
1/15/04 - And another:
"13. Get you kicked off your school's basketball team, thereby costing them the championship."Let's see how many of these came round the bend this year
1/18/04 - Oh my lord...
"I still like her mom, so I greeted her, and they came up to the register, I said hi to her mom again, and she paid, then she came up to the register and I scanned her stuff, told her the total, and her mom says, "You can say 'Hi' to her, she won't bite." so I look at her mom and say, "Nahh" and they're on their way."
"That's right, she used the crying face and said that I
was acting immature. Yeah...let's see here..."
1/19/04 - Gimme another one for the road...
"14. Make you miss the swim meet."
1/22/04 - FINAL UPDATE:
"Monday: Closing the store
Tuesday: Closing the store
Wednesday: First day of training
Thursday: Second day of training
Friday: First day of solo work"It's still crazy to me how well that whole thing worked out. Another one of those weird crazy karma-y things...i dunno
1/31/04 - You're about to enter a world...
"A world where rules don't exist...
A world where there are no allies...
A world where your status is judged by the amount of crap you've put into the car you drive...
The world...of the Greenland thugs..."I STILL remember these morons...good lord...MCfrikkinDONALD'S!
2/2/04 - Hi...
"Events like the one that occured to me today make me thankful and grateful for all the people i know and the things that have happened to me."Y'know...I've only told, like, three people what happened that day...
2/4/04 - A List of Rules and Guidelines for Toll Booth Patrons
"- No, my arm does not bend back that far, slow down
- No, if you drive past the booth and have to get out of your car, I will not get out and meet you half way
- No, I do not like stretching to reach you cause you stopped three feet from the booth
- Yes, if you do something stupid like drop your change onto the ground I will laugh at you when you drive away
- Yes, I was looking down your shirt
- Yes, you do look like a fool when you have to stop and open your car door to give me your change
- No, no one wants to see your winged eagle impression, roll your window down farther
- Yes, it annoys the people behind you if you don't roll down your window until you get to the booth
- No, neither, "Well, you're in there, i'm not using the basket," nor, "Just testing your math!" are legitimate excuses for including 35 pennies in your payment.
- No, just because there's someone in the booth, it doesn't make the express lane like a regular lane.
- No, having a loud exhaust and/or leaning three quarters of the way back in your seat do not make you any more ghetto than the white bread town you're obviously heading towards.
- Yes, I can tell when you're being facetious when you greet me.
- Yes, it is difficult for me to give you directions when you keep talking over me and asking me to repeat myself.
- Yes, your jokes are retarded and I'm laughing at you, not with you."
2/5/04 - Two more!
"15. Make you talk incessantly about nothing
16. Make your friends turn their back when you're drowning"

"My dearest Lindsay Nicole Hunter...you are my everything...you are the air that i breathe...you are the ground beneath my feet...if i could i would worship you 24/7...and yet i can't because my knees hurt...please be my valentine...because me without you is like that half-empty can of paint that's started to dry and has gotten a scuzzy film on the top...and that's not too appealing at all..."Greatest Valentine Tribute EVER
2/17/04 - Unarguable proof...
"Here's the second reason, for the fourth time in the five and a quarter years I've had my license, I got a warning...you know WHY I got a warning? According to the cop it was because I didn't have a past record. Let's think about this...so far I've been pulled over in Greenland, Portsmouth, Rye and now Hampton...but I don't have a past record..."Maybe the cops just find me incredibly sexy...
3/3/04 - *contented sigh*
"I WOULD say the only way this day could get better is if i'd gone camping, but only about four people or so would get the reference..."I'm so dirty!

"I'm not wearing pants."
"It has been brought to my attention that a bit of fiction regarding myself has been published in someone else's LiveJournal. Given the reputation and personality of this person, I, myself, am not too worried about it tarnishing my good name...though I'm not sure who cares about my name in the first place...ANYWAY...though I'm sure this person is anxiously awaiting some kind of response from me that's filled with anger and hatred...I, honestly, don't give a shit. Let him lie about me, it doesn't bother me, and, really, it just makes this person look like a fool for having to make shit up just to sneak one more insult into an entry."I really do hate that guy...
"With that...I'm gonna go put pants on...good day, all."Just for clarification, as of this writing, 12/31/04...i AM, in fact, wearing pants

"One week from now, June 29th, it'll have been an entire year that i've been single, and an entire year since i've had any sort of romantic contact with anyone of the female gender. Am I happy about this? Not particularly. Has it been one of the most incredible years of my life? Absolutely. This was a year of self-discovery, self-invention, self-exploration, and I'm thankful for every minute. Becoming single was one of the best things that could have happened to me, and I'd like to thank everyone who's listened to me bitch, whine, moan and complain over the past year, as well as those of you who've listened to me beat the crap out of myself and continually offered your support and well-wishes. It really means a lot to me to have friends like you guys, and it really means a lot to know that there are people out there who actually give a damn about little ole me. Thanks...thanks a million."These sentiments will be echoed again, later...at the bottom...
"I would like to thank joekickass
for directing my attention to that Rumble Roses game. It makes me happy...that is all."It's a cool game...though i don't really play it that much...
"I am 21-years old, almost 22, and goddamnit, I fuckin love Legos. Is there something wrong with that? All the boxes say "6+" or "7+" but fuck them, man, they don't say how MUCH +! 15+ is still +!"

8/10/04 - Alright...
"Here's what I gotta figure out, though. For the past 22 years i've done nothing to escape this comfort zone that i've built around myself and, tonight, while going quite a bit overboard with the whole thing, i realize that I need to break out. I've barricaded myself in this place in which i'm completely comfortable, and I've never done anything to test the limits of the zone. I need to test the limits, i need to push the envelope."So, here we are, almost 5 months later...and I'm pretty much still in the zone...bah!
8/10/04 - So...
