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!
