Ok, that doesn't work out phonetically very well.

But yes, out of boredom, I am listening to the third movement of Chopin's Sonata no 2 in B Flat Minor, better known as the Funeral March. Personally, I blame this.

At least I finally have a job now. Now just to sign papers on Monday (whatever that means), and most likely start on Friday. Now I get to get back into semi-shape, or at least somewhat skinnier than I am now.

Speaking of which, I finally spent the Old Navy gift card I got for my birthday. I got two shirts, three pairs of boxers, two pairs of socks that are just odd (and very comfortable), and two pairs of shorts that actually look damn good on me, and fit. Oddly enough, the waist sizes are 33 and 34, which are smaller than I had predicted. I started at 38 and went down from there. o.O

Also, on the same day, I got five movies from Target:

The Boondock Saints
Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels
Snatch
Mirrormask
Stardust

Somewhere in there is a theme (or maybe even two), but I don't see it. Plus, I got a pillow I've really needed, which has really helped with my sleep, at least last night, because that was the first night I used it.

As it is 4am, and probably not the best time for writing, I should be sleeping. Also, my English seems to have deteriorated.

i can has job!

Application in on Sunday: Check
Interview: Check
Drug test: Check, but not sent back yet

Basically, I'm already hired, though I have to wait for the drug test and background check. But, with my experience, I was already qualified for...

Overnight at Kmart. Again. xD

This time, though, it's only for the summer. I'm only staying until the end of August, until my sister goes back to school.

Also, TWEWY OST is amazing, and I can't stop listening to it.

So I called FedEx back today, and was told that all positions had been filled at this time. In other words, no job for me. ;_; However, the manager told me that he was expecting a higher volume of freight, and that he might call me in the future, but when that is, I don't know. So, I'm back to being a lazy unemployed bum. Again.

In other news, I CAN HAS CAT NAO?



That's Max. Midnight doesn't let anyone hold him for more than a few seconds at a time.

Also, I was watching BBC World News America (I assume it is as such, in that it broadcasts at 10pm EDT, which is 2am or 3am BST, depending on whether or not they have switched to DST), and Midnight fell asleep in front of the TV. I guess British people talking about news in places that aren't America (and therefore things I don't have to care about) in soothing tones really does help people (and animals) fall asleep.

Well, it's been a week since my interview, and nothing. I even called yesterday, and I got a "OK, we'll pass your name and number off the to evening manager, and he'll get back to you." I don't know if this is a bad sign or not. o.O

Other than that, nothing. My life has been a waiting game, waiting for a call that still hasn't come. Bleh. xP

Step three in my quest to feel old: Interview. Apparently, this is how people get jobs in the real world. o.O But now I have to wait a couple days to see if I get called back in. I think I have a pretty good chance of getting this job.

Woo sleeping in? Normally I can get up by 11, 11:30 at the latest. Today I finally managed to drag myself out of bed at 12:30. Tiredness rears its ugly ugly head again. -_-

Snow what? There's not a damn thing around here, and yet the county saw it fit to cancel school for today. I will say that it's ass-cold here, the temperature below 32, with the wind chill in the teens at this moment.

My application? Filled out and submitted yesterday around 10am. By 4pm, I assumed I wasn't getting a call today (and hell, I just did it that day, I probably wasn't getting a call for a while). After 6pm, however, I get a call, and now I have an interview tomorrow at 3:30.

Now that was, like, nothing. All we (there were 10-11 of us) did was walk around the warehouse while (I assume) our manager-to-be explained to us what we would be doing. Basically, take the packages out of the trailers, sort them, and load them into the trucks. The whole walkthrough took fifteen minutes, and then we could go to the front office and fill out an application. However, whoever was supposed to do that had left at 5:30. The observation was at 6:00. So, I just needed to hop into a time machine and go back 45 minutes. Or, I could just do what they told me and go back tomorrow between 9-5. Lacking a suitable time machine, I opted for the latter.

Let's start with Monday, with me finally watching 300. I'd even owned it for a couple weeks prior, but never got around to watching it.

In summary: Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta RANDOM BOOB Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta RANDOM BOOB Sparta Sparta Sparta Arcadia? Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME Sparta Sparta Sparta RAWR I AM BONDAGE KING Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta Sparta FIGHT IN THE SHADE Sparta...

The random boob wasn't even that good, either.

I will say that now I feel less a man, having not spontaneously sprouted a full beard. No, I have just the pitiful facial hair I've always had, though it needs good weed whacking.

Then Tuesday I watched disc 1 of the Invader ZiM set I got on Friday. I have yet to watch any others, but now, I'm gonna sing the Doom Song. Doom doom doom doom doom...

And yet, we don't have six months to kill, so moving on.

For Valentine's Day, I got a $15 gift card to Barnes and Noble and a Hershey bar. Nothing says "Happy Commercialized Love Day" like a sugar rush and maybe 1/6 of a normal run into a bookstore.

Last night I got carded for buy cans of air. Apparently I don't look 18+, and seriously, what am I going to do with two cans of compressed air? Snort it? Also, I got a Tshirt at Old Navy (for three whole dollars) and two pairs of boxers that I kind of needed.

Tonight I went to the mall. I used that gift card at B. Daltons, which is nice and convenient, being owned by Barnes and Noble, even though there is an actual B&N just down the hill from the mall, and then a Books A Million right across the highway. I got I Am America (And So Can You) and all four volumes of R.O.D. (the set based on the OVA, not the ones based on the series, which is coincidentally also four books long). I also got the OVA at FYE, so it can go with the series I already own.

I will point out here that the Sweetheart Blast at Sonic is ok at the top, but when you get into it, it's fucking nasty.

I have an observation, as it's being called, at the FedEx right up the road on the 25th. Basically, they get to watch me for an hour or so, and then I get to fill out an application. My choices are 4pm-whenever, or 3am-whenever. Basically, it's a part time job, so there's no set ending hour, I suppose. I'd rather have the 3am one, but A) I can't drive, B) It's 3am, I can't just walk out, and C) Even if I could drive, I don't have a car. Dad works nights, and he'd have his car, and Mom has to work at 6am, so I wouldn't be able to take either car. With any luck, I'll have this job, another screwed up sleep schedule, and be going back to school next spring. I need to get off my ass and start looking into it again.

I will also say here that working on a picture for two days, in Paint, with a mouse, at 800%, in little areas, makes for an extremely cramped shoulder. But, here is the result of my work:

That's my current Gaia avatar, minus the cane. Yes, I wasted my time on that. -_- But I likes it. And it looks better at smaller resolutions. xD You can't see a lot of the flaws.

Now, release the pig!
