Second one started where I went to see if DR was still around, just on a whim, and found that it was. Got to looking at some of the old threads, and one of them was a "Give me your address and I'll send you a Christmas card" type deal. I'd made a post in it, saying something about how I'd love to take part, but that circumstances prevented me from giving that information out, but then went on about how I was trying to find someone else's address, to send them a card. Suddenly, I was holding a printout of an email in my hand that I'd sent to said person. It said something about how after a bit of digging, I'd found their email address, and that I hoped they didn't have a problem with me contacting them out of the blue. I remember the email address was "email@example.com" where the underscores were replaced with two numbers that were either threes, fours, or fives. I can't remember exactly what they were though.
So anyways, I ended up getting out of bed at 10 this morning, to phone EB Games. This time, I got a more polite lady, who actually said "No, none came today. Sorry." Went back to sleep after that (well, more slept for an hour, woke up for a couple minutes, went back to sleep for another hour, and so on), 'till 3. Waking up at 10 wasn't fun either. I had both the alarm on my DS and my alarm clock set to go off, so I'd be sure to wake up, and they did. Problem was that when they went off, I didn't know what they were, because I was still half asleep. By the time I got them both turned off, I'd turned my DS off and back on again, turned my PSP on, and turned the actual alarm clock off :s
After I got dressed and everything, I did a bit of stuff on the computer, and went to the bank. The people there must think they're really clever. I walked up to the lady at the desk, handed her my book, and told her I wanted to withdraw $50. First thing out of her mouth was "Are you going to buy a jacket?" Really nice. I don't set foot outside that much right now (really just when getting to work, and while waiting outside after we're closed), so I really have no need for a jacket. If it did come to that point though, I've still got at least one upstairs which fits me quite well. On a somewhat related note, I do need to get new shoes for work though. The ones I have now are literally coming apart.
We get paid this week though, so I suppose I'll wait 'till then to get them. I figure that right away Mom and Dad are going to get close to $160 of whatever I make, plus new shoes are going to cost at least $40, so I'm going to be spending $200 of my money right away :\ I might just forget about getting new shoes until I absolutely cannot use the ones I have right now anymore. I figure they've still got at least another week left in 'em, and anyways, it's only the left shoe that's coming apart right now.
Work tonight shouldn't go too bad. It's a Monday night, so it'll be dead, it's snowing (and the snow's staying) out, so fewer people will want to be driving around than normal, and me, Kevin, and Glenda are on tonight, and we usually manage things pretty well together. While I'm thinking of Glenda though, she said something really out of place to me last night. She told me that Taco Bell was looking to hire three new managers, and that I should become one. To be honest, yeah, I've thought about it in the past, and although it could be fun at times, the stress and hassle wouldn't be worth it. I've been there long enough to see several good examples of just what sort of stuff ends up being your responsibility as a manager, and also, as Josh put it such a long time ago "Everything is your fault", or in a more positive light "Everything is your responsibility". If something doesn't get done for closing that should, and you left your crew members to do it, you'll be the one to get in trouble for not checking everything once before setting the alarm, just to make sure everything was done.
It's like, I'm willing to learn the manager-specific stuff, but I don't want to actually become one. I much prefer there being someone else working, that's actually in charge of the shift, while I just do whatever I can, rather than actually having to be the one running things.
Oh dear :D I just clicked a random link in an ad on another site, which led to "fastfortunenow.com". After glancing over the site, took a look at the source code to see if there was anything special in the comments. Let's just say "fastfortunenow.com/_private/form_result
That'll be about it for now though. I feel like playing StepMania for a bit :)
