It's almost three in the morning...my alarm is set to go off at seven...this does not bode well for Homestar Runner...
I figure while I'm sittin here not sleepin I might as well update you as to the goings on and assorted...uhm...goings on in my life to date:
I might get promoted at my store for the Holiday period, I know Ellen got temporarily promoted last year to "Holiday Assistant Manager" so the same might happen to me. I dunno if it will, but if it does that makes me eligible for at least one bonus if we make plan November and December.
So my dear friend Beans (xjadenx
) likes to, for some reason, find me people on MySpace to hook up with. I dunno why... Anyway one of the people she linked me to was this guy I've seen around who I thought was rather the hottie. So I sent him a friend request, if nothing else it might up the ole social life scale to something higher than "That of a Slug."
The battery on my laptop is fucked. I don't know what it is but every laptop I've owned, all three of 'em, the first major issue is always the battery. Here's what happened this time. I emailed Gateway Monday afternoon cause the light on the front is blinking and I didn't know what it meant. They told me to run a battery recalibration, so I did. I started the re-calibration at 5:30pm Monday night before I left for work. When I got back home around 10 it was still going. So I call Gateway, find out that it can take anywhere up to 24 hours, say OK and let it be.
I come out this afternoon to check on it and it's still going...ok, hasn't been 24 hours yet, it was only about 1:30 at that point, whatever. I go to work, get home at 10...it's...still...going... So I call Gateway again and I ask the guy, "Hey, I sent an email yesterday they told me to run this, how long does it normally take?"
He replies, "Well, they say it can take up to 24 hours, but I, personally, have never seen it run any more than 8-12"
"O...kay," I reply, "I'm approaching 36..."
His response was, and I quote, "...wow." He then told me that if it runs any more than 12 hours it means the battery is toast, so they put an order through, they're gonna send me a new battery, cause the computer's only a few months old and still under warranty, and as long as I remember to send them the dead one all will be hunky-dory and I won't get charged a penny. Good times.
...did I just say "hunky-dory"?
Anyway, what else... Another entry in the "Everyone else gets laid but me" file, my friend/semi-godsister Carole dumped her boyfriend two weeks ago and has already shacked up with a guy she's been seeing for said couple weeks. A) What the Fuck and B) Why does this never happen to ME...
Zack feels my pain, though, so it's all good.
I bought a 15-inch HDTV to use as a monitor for my XBox 360 so that it makes everything all pretty-like. And dig this, it cost me less than 200 dollars, so all you people out there goin, "Blah blah wastin' all yer money grar grar grar" can suck on it...
And if I do get that temporary holiday promotion I do believe there may just be a temporary holiday raise involved, too. But, if not, I still qualify for bonuses, which will just be another incentive to sell my soul to these godless consumer heathens.
Ellen called me shameless the other day for selling an Extended Service Plan on a DVD, but hey, it qualifies! If they want to waste their hard-earned $3.49, who am I to stop them?
Whyyyyyy am I not tired?! I have to be at work in six and a half hours...I should really be asleep right now...
Alright, it's now officially three o'clock...guess I should go try this whole sleeping thing again...
