I Should've Anticipated Difficulties

It would figure, right? Brandon stopped in at work tonight to get some food and check when his next shifts were, so I used the opportunity to ask if he had any money for me. I wasn't expecting it right then, and indeed, he said that he didn't have any at the moment, so I told him I'd be in again tomorrow to talk to Melissa, and that his ticket had arrived today, so if he was able to go to the bank, we could trade items, and that would be that. He, however, said he'd "have to see" tomorrow, which I was and still am annoyed at. He asked me to buy said ticket under the sole condition that he'd pay me back on Thursday, but he didn't send me the link until the weekend so I couldn't, and as such he presumably spent that $70 on something else. Not that it's really annoying, because if anything, I'd have either put some of that money toward buying dual layer DVDs, or used the entire sum to buy 8GB of RAM for my MacBook Pro, but I want to say it shows that he doesn't really care all the same. Whatever the case though, I have the ticket, and it's on my bookshelf directly across the room from where I am right now, and he will not be getting that until I get $70 from him. Simple and reasonable, I think.

As for the more serious things I mentioned earlier today, where do I start? With a list, I suppose.

As such, I should have at least one update of interest tomorrow, but other than that, I'm going to use the day as an actual day off. I do have to go to work for a bit, yes, but I plan to stop at the candy store on King Street on the way home to see what they have, at least. After that, the 8GB RAM upgrade for this laptop would be nice, but it's also fairly expensive, and I would like to buy something else that's fairly expensive for Christmas next week, so it wouldn't do to spend $70 unnecessarily right now. On the other hand, between this weekend and next, I'll be working ten shifts, so I might be able to afford both, and if not then, definitely on the pay after next week's, which will be just after Labor Day. I'm going to bed for tonight though, without my alarm set, so hopefully tomorrow goes well all-around, and I should at least have a more coherent version of this entry to post then. I feel better having said what I did, however, so that's good, at least~
