Thanks Again, Earl

Before I get too angry or whatever, let me say that tonight went remarkably well, considering one of the closers' shifts was canceled, and when I started at 8, almost everything still had to be done. As for the details, another cut, just to separate the work stuff from the rest of this entry:

Otherwise, can't quite remember how I found this now, but there's a rather interesting movie here. I had to pause it and go back at the beginning, just to see if that guy was actually wearing a tail :p And even though it's far from the point of it, "real" furries in the year 2058? Fun to think about :3

Then there's another movie I just watched, that I'm not going to bother linking to, because it's been on several of those social bookmarking type sites. You should be able to easily find it by doing a Google search for "crazy coffee shop lady" or something like that~ I wish they'd shown what happened from the time she walked in there on...

I think I'm just going to head upstairs though. Not particularly tired, but I don't feel like doing anything else down here :\ Here's hoping I actually have a normal sleep tonight too :s

Way to Start the Day

Normally when I wake up (sometimes before I even get out of bed :p), I check for any new emails (for I am still waiting on replies from SPark and Zaz right now), then go through my various RSS feeds for anything interesting. Some days, you might as well replace "interesting" with "disturbing" or "depressing". Some examples:

From Digg:
"The Sixth Extinction is Underway"
"Anti-spammer fined $60K for DNS lookup 'hack'"
"The 5 Most Horrifying Bugs in the World"
"ND Judge rules that 'host -l' command constitutes..." (one of them is a repeat...)

From del.icio.us:
"The 5 Most Horrifying Bugs in the World | Cracked.c..."
"FSTDT Top 100"

From reddit:
"Ballot boxes found slit; NH..."
"The 5 Most Horrifying Bugs in the World" (third time repeat now...)
"While you were sleeping, a full-fledged war broke o..."
"White House: 473 Days of E-Mail Gone"
"School Destroyed Video It Was Ordered to Preserve"

At least from what I actually read :s

On the good side of things though, that "package" (which turned out to just be an envelope) that I've been waiting for all week has finally arrived. That brings my "Needs feedback" count down to 4, although right now, I'm just waiting on another transfer to complete, then I plan on going for the first Guitar Hero :3 Good thing we got paid this week.

So, work tonight. Unless Earl starts canceling shifts again, it should be Josh C., Steve, Ange, and me. Quite acceptable, with the exception of Ange, but for now, I'm going to take the attitude of "Don't bother her, and she won't bother me." Don't know about Josh C., but Steve is getting tired of her as well. But then I work 'till Tuesday or Wednesday after that :\ Five shifts a week is alright, but I wish they had the common sense to put the other two days I have off together. Maybe I'll have to talk to Josh about that next time I see him...

Anyways, I'm hungry, so let's go see what's in the kitchen~...
