I Suppose This is a Change

Continuing with the whole cleaning my room thing, I moved the table at the head of my bed to the other end, then pushed the whole bed as far up against the wall as it could go. It's going to make it incredibly awkward for Dad to get in and out of his room, should he need to again, but I like it. Ever since I got the bed, it's been in the same position, so it's about time it got moved somewhere else :p

But yeah. So ends another Christmas. We're supposed to be heading over to Giant Tiger (at least) at noon or so, which is ridiculous (in terms of sleep), and after looking in their flyer, it appears those blankets aren't as great as I thought they were (judging by the price anyways). Mom said she might end up buying one for me though, because I only got two "big" presents (that "Laughter is the Best Medicine" book, and the jeans), and I'm not about to tell her no. Was hoping to go to Walmart as well, but nobody else wants to, so feh. Maybe they'll decide to come along after all, but I doubt it. Need to call Taco Bell as well to see when I work next. I'm pretty sure 8 to close on Friday night, but...

I'm also more or less certain that I am getting sick, because I have that telltale taste in my throat when I cough of... well, I'm really not sure, but I know I recognize it.

The main thing for now though: while cleaning the table in the corner of my room, I found something that I had to write for Grade 11 English in High School. A continuation of a play we'd read. As long as you can understand my writing (or printing, really), you can read it here :3

I'm sure I could've easily just typed it up and posted the text file, but that would've taken significantly longer, as well as there's something to be said for pen on paper, for a difference~

And while I'm uploading pictures, I'm sure this just happens to be a coincidence, but I like to think otherwise (and yes, I realize that's rather pathetic)~~

This entry really isn't going anywhere though, so that'll be it 'till tomorrow.

I Don't Recall Being Scheduled to Work on Thursday

But apparently I do. 8 to close. Wonderful. I suppose that means I'm going to *have* to finish cleaning my room tonight, but all that's really left is tidying everything up on my floor (clothes, mostly) and running the carpet cleaner over it, as well as going through the top two drawers of my dresser to throw some stuff out. I still have a binder in there of Pokémon cards. Literally full. Then there's other random stuff such as a lightswitch cover I could, but most likely won't use, along with a bunch of old floppy disks, and other such "wonders".

Then grocery shopping tomorrow at 4, but I'm looking forward to that, just to see if they still have any after-Christmas deals. Today didn't go too badly, considering we went from EB Games to Walmart to Real Canadian Superstore to Little Caesars to Shoppers and finally back home :s Picked up a nifty leopard pillowcase (or "sham" as the package said) along with a red one that's going to take some getting used to (there was one more that I plan on picking up tomorrow if it's still there), and a pack of 4 AA batteries, for my wireless mouse. Cost me ~$21 in all, but I don't think I'm going to get around to using the last couple dollars :s

And also, as promised, got a picture of my tail from Lionel today, which I think there's only one problem with right now, but I've yet to receive a reply back to tell me if I was seeing things the right way or not. For the sake of simplicity though, you can see it here. The email with the attachment actually said "Now THATS a tail .. long enough for ya!". I haven't the heart to say "Sure, but..." :p

It's supposed to be going out "first thing" tomorrow, which still might happen provided that third ring gets put on in time, but what's one more day waiting, with what I've had so far?

Dad also wanted me to find another copy of "The Point" for some friend of his, but not feeling like actually bidding for it, showed him the DVDs, and he likes those.

But if I'm going to do more cleaning, I might as well get up there now. Maybe I can get it done and still have some time left to come downstairs~
