    • It's done.

      13 years ago


      I have posted my entry into JJMcFly's scavneger hunt. It is possible one of the silliest things I have ever done and will be regreting it for years to come.

      If you want to see it, find it yourself. I will not help you humiliate me.

      Please direct all insult, pointing and laughing right here.

    • Sleep goood.

      13 years ago


      I have come to a decision, I'm not getting enough sleep. And the reasonj for this, I have determined, is the internet. I always seem to lose track of time when I''m online, so I have decided to spend less time online.

      I have decided to cut myself back to one hour per day when I work, and 2-3 hours on my nights off. I am hoping this will allow me to get enough sleep thus improving my work. I'm been noticing myself taking longer and longer to stock aisles at work and I find it unacceptable. My boss hasn't said anything, but he doesn't have to.

      Now do not get me wrong, I will still be entering, and winning, Mr McFly's contest and getting a little WoW in, just not too much else. So if it seems to take me awhile to respond to something, it's not because I don't care or I'm ignoring you or anything.

      I have no idea how long this will last, but knowing myself as well as I do, I don't think it'll be long. smiley0.gif


    • What a boring guy...

      13 years ago


      I am. Why do people bother watching me? Two weeks without a journal post? Oh well, the wait is over, here is my new and improved journal post..... well, new anyways.

      Okay, so it seems I'm moving up in the ranks at work, as I am being trained on how to place the orders. It's a job a monkey could do, so they made a good choice. While placing an order may not seem like a big deal, it means that I have developed enough trust with my boss that he is willing to give me a bit more responsibility. Now if I could only parlay that trust into a raise. *shrugs*

      On top of that, I will be one of two employees in charge of the shift Wens. night, I think it's some sort of test to see who handles things better. That means it's up to me to make sure the load gets broken down and stocked, the store gets faced and everything gets cleaned up and put in it's place. Peice of cake. The ytricky part will be the anouncements. I'm gonna have to imform the costumers of the impending store closeing, and I'm not real good at 'public speaking'. I know it's only over the intercom, but I still get nervous. I don't want to screw it up and look like an ass. I just know I'm gonna end up sounding like a bad radio anouncer. Or worse, a game show host. Oh well, I'll cope.

      Other than all that things are about the same. Been workin' hard on McFly's Scavenger Hunt and apartment hunting. Okay, so Moonracer has been doing the apartment hunting, but I'm cheering her on.

      Hope you have all found this enlightening and I hope reading it has broght you one step closer to inner peace. Later.

      Edit: I like donuts.

    • Happy New Year

      13 years ago


      Okay, here it is 10:30 on the 1st and I'm finally getting around to posting a 'Happy New Years" greeting. Oh well, at least I didn't wait til the 2nd.

      Okay, so I'm sitting here thinking about stuff that happened last year and stuff that will happen next year and I had a thought....

      How many of you are where you thought you'd be last year? I mean, did you sit there at the end of 2004 and decide this is the directiuon you wanted to head in 2005?

      I certainly didn't. I didn't really plan on haveing a child, it just kinda happened. I didn't plan to be working, I just figured I'd still be unemployed and even more depressed. All in all, my life is alot better than I had pictured this time last year. Not to mention all the cool and interesting people I've meet here on RvB. I only hope it gets better through-out 2006. With luck I'll still be posting in here, so you can all know as it happens.

      Also, did anyone make any resolutions this year? Mine is a simple one, I resolve to be the best father I can be in the coming year. I still have a few months before I get the chance, but I think I can manage to keep this one.

    • A very funny video.

      13 years ago


      TCG_Chris has found a great machinima video using WoW. It's friggin' hilarious. You can check it out in his journal here. It explains, once and for all, what the internet was created for.

    • *sheds a tear of joy*

      It's back. My cable internet is back. I went to bed Christmas day (I work nights, so I sleep days) and when I work up Christmas night it was back. So now I can come back and say hello to everyone again.

      So, how was everyone's Christmas? Mine wasn't too bad, except that I had to work Christmas night. Total bummer. I'm serious though, how was your day/night?

      While you're thinking about that, I want to throw out an idea. As I'm sure many of you know, Mr. JJMcFly will be holding a scavneger hunt sometime in January. His hunts are always amusing, and his prizes are..... incredible. He gives out all his mods, and at this point he's up to 700+, so here's what I'm thinking.

      Let's see if we can't make this hunt truly interesting, let's try to get Mr. McFly up too 1000+ mods. Every mod given will become part of the prizes that will be awarded and with 1000 the top prize will be AMAZING, I'm talking hundreds of mods for 1st place alone. This is just an idea, help if you like, I know I will be giving all of my mods for the cause... plus I plan to win first prize, so I'll just get them back. smiley0.gif

      P.S. Please excuse any typos, I'm using a new keyboard. My boss, TCG_Chris, was kind enough to give me his old Zboard which he didn't use anymore. What a nice guy.... sometimes. smiley0.gif

    • Experiencing technical difficulties...

      13 years ago


      Please stand by.

      Some of you might have noticed my wife, Moonracer, and I have not been posting lately. We haven't even been logging on lately, why is this? It's because our ungratefule, uncaring, just plain not nice cab;e internet isn't working for us. It seems that we have a problem somewhere in the line, and won't have anyone to look at it until..... THURSDAY! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Okay, all hope is not lost. I am lucky enough to have a father who works for the phone company. And he just happened to find a spare DSL lying around. Don't tell. So while I now have internet access again, it's with this slow ass DSL. I'll survive... somehow. The real test for it comes tonight, when I attempt to play WoW.

      How sad is that, Christmas Eve into Christmas morning and I'll be playing WoW. I need a new hobby. And my cable internet back. *weeps*

    • A little Christmas cheer.

      13 years ago


      I've been getting a bit too serious lately, so I thought I'd lighten up a bit and post a couple of cheerful Christmas stories for you too enjoy.

      'Twas the Night Before Christmas

      Frosty the Snowman

      For those who aren't aware, Uncle Burnsie would be former Vikings coach Jerry Burns. These are a couple years old.
      Thanks to 92 KQRS for posting these free MP3's on their website so I could share with others. They have a couple more on there, if you'd like to hear them just go to 92kqrs.com. You can also download their morning show daily.

      Okay, I'm done whoring now.

    • I wish you a Merry Christmas

      13 years ago


      Okay, I have one mildly difficult night and two (I'm guessing) painfully difficult night of work ahead of me before the big day. So with that said, and not knowing if I'm gonna be in any mood to chat, I would like to extend my heartfelt Holiday greeting to you all.

      I know not everyone here celibrates Christmas, though it seems the majority do. So those of you that do not may be wondering why I have it in the journal heading, the reason for this is simple, I do celebrate Christmas and think that everyone should. That statement may piss some people off, but stick with me.

      I think everyone knows that Christmas is a Christian holiday.... or at least it was. Well, I mean it still is, but it's something more as well. I feel there are two different Christmas' One religious, one not. The religious holiday is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. This is where the manger (no idea how to spell it, and too lazy to look), the wise men and all of that.

      The non-religious, I believe, is represented by Santa Claus, the evergreen tree and all that. This also happens to be where Rudolph and Frosty fit in. This is what I celebrate. I believe Christmas can be a non-religious holiday that everyone can celebrate, much like Thanksgiving (for American's) or New Year's. It can be a time of giving to those you love and those less fortunate. A time we can all get behind, not get ultra PC on. I will NOT call it a 'holiday tree'. This is just my belief. If you haven't guessed it yet, I'm not Christian, I'm agnostic. I believe the Bible to be the best selling work of fiction ever written and is more of a lesson in morality than fact.

      At this point some of you may be wondering what brought this on. It's what I mentioned earlier, the PC crap. I actually heard a report calling for Christmas trees to be called Holiday trees. Yet everywhere I go all I hear is Christmas music. No one seems to be complaining about that. I'm one of the least religious people I know, but I don't have a problem with any of the Christmas music, it's music. If people want to get all PC they need to remove Christmas and Easter as national holidays, but you don't see anyone lining up to give up those two days off work, do ya? My point is, just enjoy the holiday, enjoy the time with your family, give to the less fortunate if you can spare it and STFU!

      I apologize for this rant, I've been in a slightly foul mood lately. I hide it pretty well, but sometimes I just have to let some of it out. And I understand if some of you dislike me for all this, hell even I'm begining to dislike myself. I can be kind of an ass . So I'm ju8st gonna stop now.

      I truly do wish you and yours all the best on this week before Christmas and I wish you all a safe New Year.

      P.S. If I hear 'Baby it's cold outside' one more time, I might just strangle someone. That is the one Christmas song I can definately do without.
