Progress...

What I speak of:

ye ye ok ya you bum ill be ur grrrrantur :P now read that gibberish!

The reply I sent him got ROT-13'd, after which I told him to "read *that* gibberish!" :p I did give him a hint, which was to go to rot13.com though, so hopefully he's able to read it~

But that's good :3 I sent Michele an email too to let her know I wouldn't be able to come in this Wednesday, but that I could on Tuesday or Thursday if she needed me, as well as asking her if I could use her as a reference on the application, so hopefully she'll say "Yes".

Also, it is half an hour. Took that longer way home tonight, which was a nice change (I've been taking the main roads thus far for safety, but the side roads are alot better for just being able to be by yourself and have time to think about whatever (at least in my case)). I left at 1:15, and got home at 1:45, so tomorrow night, I'll try walking that way there and see what happens. On the topic of work as well, that week I just had off will apparently be affecting the pay after next, so that's another good thing there. Not when you consider that said pay is the first one of the month, but otherwise it is.

One bad thing about work though would be that I opened the time off book to may planning to write my name in for the 19th, and found that it was already completely booked off :\ It *is* a holiday, yes, but perhaps just trying for going to the furmeet again next month would be a better idea...

Oh, and to Cola: that "*wave*" was supposed to mean. "I'm leaving for work. I know it likely doesn't make a huge difference to you seeing as we stopped talking about ten minutes ago, but I left the chat window open, so I figured I'd say it." I know it's alot to say in a single word though, so maybe I'll be slightly more specific next time. If I needed to get your attention, I would've said "*poke*", or possibly "*jab*" or "*shove*" depending on how long I'd been waiting ^^; Just because you said it though, "Hey" back~

Anyways, it's only 4 right now, so I'm going back downstairs to see about finding something to eat, then I'm sure I'll figure out something to do afterwards :3

Once Again

Woke up at noon, and I cannot get back to sleep. Well, I probably could, actually, we'll see if I'm still tired after I write a couple things in here:

For one, when I woke up I had to go to the bathroom, so I opened my door, and Adam was standing there talking to Mom I think. He turned to me and asked "Oh, and are you downloading or uploading more to the internet each month? Dad says it's starting to cost more and more, and we may have to..." I download / upload a certain amount of stuff a month, sure. Lately it's just been music and the like (in terms of significantly-sized files), but perhaps it has something to do with me finding seasons 6 and 7 of Home Improvement not that long ago :\ They totaled about 10GB, so that might be what they're talking about there. uTorrent will remain closed on my laptop though, unless I absolutely need it, and otherwise, we'll have to see if Naomi is downloading anything. Last time I saw her uTorrent window, there were easily 30 torrents, all complete, seeding at the same time, which is just ridiculous. I appreciate trying to maintain at least a 1:1 ratio, except in the case of sites that actually keep track, or for files that are hard to find. Simple as that.

Getting away from that though, I have one reference now. Michele said I "may most certainly use her", and I'll be going in Thursday afternoon this week, so I'll just get the information I need from her then. As for the other one, I'll likely see Josh at work tonight, so if he hasn't replied to my email by then, I'll ask him if he thinks his Mom or Dad would be willing to give me one. I know it's something I should ask for myself, but I'm not sure where either of them are at these days :s Last I knew, Shelia was in the hospital for her hip surgery or whatever it was, so I'm not sure if she's home yet. Ron is my second-last resort (that I can think of right now, anyways), simply because although we've known each other for at least two years, I feel as if I don't know him well enough to ask for a reference. My last resort right now is Manoah, simply because he's been working at Taco Bell since I started there, and we've grown to know each other fairly well. Not really outside of work, mind you, but then again, Michele doesn't either. And that's at least that I can think of right now. Maybe I'll be able to think of someone else, but I'm not sure about that, and I only need one more to begin with. Actually, I *might* be able to ask Penny, because she's known me for a long time too. Hmm. I'll just wait to see what Josh says about Shelia for now, I guess.

Anyways, I also booked the 12th and 26th of next month off at work yesterday night. The 12th seems a bit soon yet, but I think for the 26th I'm going to look into going back to the furmeet again. Looking at the pictures Cola posted from the rollerskating event this past weekend makes me really want to go to one of those, but the chances of doing so in May seem to be rather slim :\

I might as well get up though. I've been filling out the online passport application with as much as I can for now, and I'm stuck at not knowing how long we've been living at this address for. The only thing I know is that we lived on Van Allen when I was a kid, then we moved to Wellington St West, which I don't really remember the details of, and we're still here right now... Dad should be up though, so hopefully he knows~

"1ik5.info"

I was IMed that link by Zaz yesterday morning (except it had his email address before it), and upon clicking it was greeted with a site asking me to log in with my MSN username and password. At the time I figured "No, this doesn't sound like something I'd be interested in", so I sent him an email to ask what it was about (he was offline, and I wasn't sure if he was just faking it, or really was), and received a reply from him this morning: "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T CLICK IT." I'll spare you the long explanation of what it was, only because the comments here explain it quite nicely. Even though I am using a throwaway address, I'd still rather not fall for something like that :s

So tonight, I'm closing with Ange and Cindy, as far as I know. I'm not exactly looking forward to it, but it is Monday night, so hopefully it'll be slow. Wednesday, however, I work my first supper shift of this week, after which I plan on heading up to Shoppers, followed by going home a completely different way (the longest stretch will be along Victoria), and I'll be stopping by 7-11 on the way. I haven't been there in a while, so why not ^^

There are dishes to be done before I leave for work though, so I might as well wash those, lest I end up having to do them when I get home again~
