Giving UpSo after realizing that some of the journals sitting on my watchlist are a couple years old I have given up and hit the 'Clear All Alerts' button. It was original intention to go back and read journals after having been away from the site for awhile. Then they kept piling up and I kept not making the time to read them. So if there are some of you who saw me pop up every once in awhile but not comment on your journals that's why. Instead of just clearing it out a long time ago, I kept all those things sitting in the list and because of that haven't kept current with what everyone is doing. If anyone was upset at all that I stopped reading their journals I apologize. So I am starting with a blank slate once again. I can't promise I will stay on top of things this time, but I'm going to try. Maybe along the way I'll get reacquainted with some old friends.
HrmmSo, somehow it's been four months since I put anything in this space. Whoops.
I've been keeping busy at work recently, getting plenty of hours and am still able to enjoy going to work every day. Plus about a month ago they decided to make some changes in how they ran things so I ended up with a little more responsibility and getting paid a little more, so that's a good thing. Plus if all goes according to plan we will have some new steady business added in a few months so that is also a good thing. It's nice these days to have your management talking about expanding the facilities, not cutting back.
In other news I am in the process of building myself a new computer. I would have already been done but when my parts showed up last Wednesday UPS had managed to pretty well destroy my new case. Not only was the front panel cracked and broken off from the rest of the tower but the whole thing is actually bent out of square. Fortunately Newegg rocks and is sending me a replacement at no cost, unfortunately it's not supposed to be here for another day or so. Once that gets here I'll be able to get things put together. I'll try to remember to take some pictures.
Also I'm looking forward to next week for several reasons. First my sister will be home for the first time in about six months. I saw her around New Years, but that was at a wedding for my cousin and we didn't really have any time to hang out then. So we will get to hang out and we are also going to the see Watchmen, and hopefully the theater will have a midnight showing for it.
So that's about it for me right now, how's everybody else doing?
That Time Of YearSo I'm walking through the store the other day and I heard a weird noise coming from a few aisles over so I went to investigate. Upon nearing the source of the noise I begin to see Halloween products. As it turns out they had a large boombox on a shelf that was playing music very loud. While I was there it happened to be playing "Thriller", not really a classic Halloween song to me but whatever. The point of this is that I had a realization upon viewing this area of the store. If they are selling decorations and costumes they must also be selling candy! Upon walking a few more aisles I did indeed find candy and one of the best things ever, edible ghosts, as seen here: This is why I love being a grownup, I can buy my own candy and toys.
The Dark KaniggitI saw a midnight showing, and the movie frickin' rocks. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone so I'm not gonna really comment on the plot or anything here. Visually the film is great, very well shot with some good visual/special effects. The score is good too, and the writing is excellent, there is some good commentary in there, but it doesn't hit you ever the head with it either. Everyone in the cast played their role very well too, no one seemed like the were just in it for a paycheck, solid performances all around. So in short go see it, in my opinion this one is even better than Batman Begins.
Note: The movie is rated PG-13, but if anyone knows someone who is 13, I wouldn't recommend you take them to this movie. It's a lot darker than the first one, as well as more violent. Plus the Joker is creepy as hell.
So anyway nothing all that new or different happening in my life. I'm at a different job than I was last time I did a journal but it's still a low pay menial job, so it's not like the difference is all that huge. I wish I could say that something really cool has happened in the past few months but that isn't the case. So anyway, I hope everyone is doing well and that their lives are alright. Also I know that this is old hat but yes, I still haven't gotten caught up on anyone's journals. So I have no idea how things are going for most of you or what direction life has taken you, that's why I hope that if it's taken you anywhere it's taken you somewhere good. I hope everyone has a Happy/Merry Whatever You Celebrate and I'll see y'all around.
Still Kickin'I'm still alive, just not doing anything interesting. So anywho, that's about it for now. I don't really have anything worth sharing, and I mostly likely will still be pretty inactive on here. If you have something worth sharing please feel free to do so, cause I have no idea when, if ever, I'll go through the hundreds of unread journals sitting in my watchlist.
Oh yeah, since I don't know if I will be back on before Wednesday I'm reposting this now.
Have a good holiday, drink a beer, grill some burgers, and blow something up for me, I'll be at work.
