In other news, December 2nd is a date of some interest to me. Unfortunately, it is a Friday, which means I will almost certainly have to work then (I do surprisingly have the 27th (a Sunday) off, but that's not Friday), but aside from that, it holds three special notes, at least in my mind. One is that it is Xion's birthday, which he told me the other night, but I don't know if there is much I'll do aside from wishing him a happy birthday, because I won't be there until the 13th. Secondly, Mom and I are going to get our hair cut then, which normally wouldn't be that special, but happens on the 2nd as well, and the third is, according to Laura, that Walmart starts staying open 24 hours then. Will I go out on that first Friday? Probably not, but I'll have been paid by then, so it might be nice to set aside $50 or so to go out there some night during the week proper. Maybe I can get edible things for everybody from there. Also, toward the gift-related difficulties mentioned in my previous entry, I think I will go through with those ideas outlined, as I also plan to get at least one gift for somebody here from the zoo. Boxes will still be an issue, as will be wrapping paper and tape, but as noted before, I still do have some boxes here that could be collapsed. I'm not sure if it's related to this at all, but I came home last night to find a message from Xion asking "You there?". I told him that I was, but was going downstairs to get some food first, and when I came back up, he was offline, and hasn't returned since. I'm going to go with the presumption that he asked because I said I would have to show him a new list of TV shows I have downloaded to see if he wanted any of them "tomorrow", but never did because yesterday didn't start out very well. Ah well. Maybe we will have a chance to talk tonight.
Otherwise, I think I will spend my remaining half hour this afternoon on games, or leave for work early, but then I'd just play those there, and I think it's overall better here, where there's less background noise. I have a new game going by the name of "Half Minute Hero" to try out, or I could continue unlocking songs in DJMAX, because I've finally figured out that beating them in any other mode aside from Freestyle is what makes them available for free play. I can't think of anything better to do, aside from waiting for the last remnants of this headache to fade away~
