Showed up Anyways

Got an email from Canada Post about an hour ago now to say the item had been delivered successfully and all that, so I went downstairs, and there was indeed a box sitting on the printer. It's sort of funny to think that last night, I'd at first decided I would stay up to see if someone dropped it off in the morning, but then remembered what the delivery date was, and decided not to :p

That's one less thing to worry about, although there are still at least four things left on my list :s Adam's gift being one, along with my tail from Lionel, second order from a certain source, and something else from eBay. Said thing still has to be paid for, which is why I'm anxiously awaiting getting an email from Paypal today, but if it's anything like last week, it won't be 'till tomorrow night, after I've already left for work that the transfer actually clears :\

Closet got cleaned out exactly as planned last night, but it took me four hours, and two large black bags full of garbage to complete :x I still have to get either the vacuum or carpet cleaner up here sometime today to clean up my floor too, because it's really a mess now.

Amusingly enough, behind a couple boxes, I found $10 worth of movie gift certificates. Yes, the same kind I got at Heart and Stroke's Christmas party only a couple days ago. I can't really tell the date they were purchased, unfortunately, but I think the numbers on the back(s) say more than enough:

Old: 191940
New: 203724

I'd give them to Adam, but there's a little note on them that says "Valid up to a year from purchase" (or something like that), and I don't know if they can tell the date from the numbers or not :\ Meh. I will anyways, and if he runs into problems, then I'll explain things :p

Don't think I'm going to be getting back to sleep now though, so I might as well get up and start playing Super Mario Galaxy again or something.

That Could've Turned Out (Very) Badly

First of all, know that I walked to work tonight. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, except for the having to walk all over uneven snow part. Made it there five minutes faster than I usually do if I walk though, which is quite something. Anyways, got to work, changed into my uniform (I'd been wearing my jeans and a long-sleeved t-shirt before that), and stuck my clothes under the sink in the staff bathroom (in a bag, of course).

Skip ahead to after we'd closed, and Steve pointed out that I'd forgotten them :s He was extremely reluctant to go back in, because he didn't know if he needed a different code to disable the alarm or not, so I told him I knew Josh's, and he agreed to let me go in. Heh. Just as he was opening the door, the thought flashed through my mind of "What if they've changed it since last time he had me go back in?", but in I went anyways, and pushed the buttons twice, which didn't work :x Then, in a bit of a panic, I tried pressing the "*" and "#" keys twice, then put the code in again, and it worked. Getting back out went without problems, but yeah.

The rest of the night sucked too, because Michelle called in because of the condition the roads were in, leaving me and Steve to close by ourselves.

But anyways, my Paypal transfer cleared while I was at work, so I've paid for that item on eBay, and am downloading the full version of Aquaria right now :3 Almost done downloading too, for the time being, so I'm going to wait for it to finish, then play it some more~
