Should've Stayed in Bed

GG. If I'd known neither Michele or Janice were going to be in today, I would've just stayed in bed. I had my alarm set for 10:10, as I figured after having it go off then, I'd set it ahead two hours to 12:10, then actually get out of bed once it went off then. However, when it actually went off the first time, I simply turned it off, through a combination of still being tired enough that I didn't care / realize what I was doing. When I woke up again, it was 12:52 or something, which is when I usually leave to come here (I'm at Heart and Stroke right now, if it wasn't obvious enough :P). I actually gave a bit of consideration to not even coming in today, but then I realized that I couldn't very well be here tomorrow, as we're going to get our hair cut at an insane 10:00 in the morning, and odds are that I wouldn't be back in time. We go out to Tilbury to get it done.

OTOH, it has been a while since I wrote anything in here from volunteering. I just unplugged the network cable temporarily, so as long as the only other person in here today isn't trying to access PRISM, I should be fine :)

I'm thinking about finishing up here at 5:00 today, at which point my Mom will should pick me up, going to the bank to get some money, then either heading out to EB Games (if they have Dark Cloud 2 in), or to Zellers to pick up the Looney Tunes Movies DVD box set I saw the other day, then finally stopping in at Taco Bell so I can get some supper and my pay stub.

Speaking of Taco Bell, it's been getting extremely annoying lately. Take my last entry's content with what I'm about to tell you, and you'll see what I mean.

Last night, Josh, Kevin, Manoah, and I were working. I started at 8, and steamed 'till 9, at which point Josh put me on front cash, as he said he was considering letting me go once the dining room was done. Even if he didn't, I would still have been out of there at 2 in the morning. Because I wasn't actually staying 'till close, Manoah got put on drive-through. That rolled along smoothly, until Josh started telling him to get working on dishes. Of course, he's more the type that would rather kick back and relax while there are no customers to serve, so instead of going back to wash whatever needed to be while there were no cars, he stood at front cash whinging about how it was so unfair that he had to do dishes. Several minutes after that, all three of them were on line together, and I was out in dining room when I heard Josh say something like "He's almost 22 and he still lives at home (laughs)", then Kevin saying "Always playing Mario AIR", in reference to me. Now, I don't have a problem if you have something to say about me, but at least say it to my face.

A little while after that, I heard Manoah say something about how it was strange that I couldn't do dishes, seeing as I had a better opportunity to, although not in that kind a manner. It got to the point where I did a quick sweep of the hallway leading to the bathrooms, then went back to wash some of the dishes so he'd stop whining.

He came back about 10 minutes later, and said something like "You're doing my dishes? Bless your little heart." All I said to that was "Let's just say you don't talk as quietly as you think you do."

Long story short, I was still out of there at 12, even though I finished dining room at 11:30, simply because Kevin was in the middle of deckscrubbing, so I helped him by making the orders that were up on the boards. The real clincher invo...

FFS. Janice just got back. Figures.

Anyways, as I was saying, the real clincher involving Manoah doing drive-through was that I can still remember a night some time ago, where he actually wanted to do that as opposed to line. So much that he even threatened to go home for the night.

Apparently some people don't realize that you have to take the good with the bad :\

In other news, yesterday was a sad day for me. Adam wanted me to download more Sonic Comics for him, so I clicked the bookmark I've set, only to get told that there was so such directory as "Comics/Sonic the Hedgehog". After looking around a bit, I found that I'm going to have to get them from other sources now. Whoever owned "The Archive" has either moved everything somewhere else, or removed it from their server. The 10GB folder I've got on my external hard drive (starting with [FXC], mind you) should have a decent amount of interesting stuff in it, although most likely nothing recent.

That's life, I guess.

In happier news, I'm really liking the "custom" firmware I've got on my PSP right now. The word "custom" is in brackets simply because it's just an alteration of the default XMB, with a new gameboot movie. Here's what I like about it:

:: No startup movie. You know the "Sony Computer Entertainment" text that'd appear once you power the PSP on? That no longer appears. As such, the UMD no longer starts automatically.
:: Holding "L" while turning the PSP on automatically loads the last used firmware in DevHook. Right now, it's set to 2.71 :D
:: Similarly, holding "R" boots into recovery mode, which I haven't had to use yet, but from what I understand, will allow you to replace some critical system files to otherwise unbrick a bricked PSP. It won't work in all cases, but man, here I was actually thinking about ordering a new PSP with the modchip preinstalled :o

Honestly, as someone on PSPUpdates put it, we're finally caught up to Sony. The ball's back in their court now.

Anyways, I think I'm going to leave this as it is for now, as Janice is back, and I don't want to get caught with this open. If I can think of anything else to say, I'll add it in when I get home ;)
