I haven’t really been in the mood lately to write up anything so that’s why there hasn’t been much in the past week or so. Life is being a pain in the ass and the last two days of work have stressed me the fuck out. Other than that I have just been home dragging myself along getting horrible amounts of sleep. Although I did pick up Lego Indiana Jones on Tuesday. It is awesome just like Lego Star Wars. Makes good fun of the original films and ties it up pretty well. Some of my favorite parts from the movies fit well into the game which made me extra happy. I also downloaded the demo for Civilization Revolution. It is going to rock when it comes out in July. I’ve been playing Civilization IV on the PC for the last few weeks like crack. I just love building up and fucking shit up.

As for work, Wednesday was pretty hectic. It was surprisingly busy when I got to work and had to shuffle about at the main register (I hate being the main). A select few customers annoyed the living shit out of me and made life tough. After it slowed down a bit I managed to finish up my duties early which made me happy. As for yesterday (Thursday), I wanted to kill people. I had two people early on that needed complete voids which slowed me down being I was the only register in the front again. The other new girl tried to help by rushing over to cosmetics (her new area) to open up and ring up people, but the lazy fucks didn’t go over and instead stayed in line and complained about how slow it was. I was about to blow but I kept it together. After the initial rush I managed to get things back in order. Unlucky for me this continued for most of the night until the last hour we were open. Then it tapered off and things got easy. I did my duties and we headed home. I had a day added to my schedule (this Saturday) so I have to go in tomorrow so I can get training for photo which I will be transferring to soon. Should be interesting. I can easily joke around with most of the photo team. As for next week I only work two or three days so it should be a relaxing week, which is a blessing.

Yesterday I went out with my parents to various car shops looking for find out who is the cheapest when it comes to getting some new tires. Back when I got my oil change (about a month ago) they told us that my front tires were dangerously low but my parents gave me the “whatever” look and decided to let me drive for a month before giving a shit. So we checked out a handful of places and decided on Les Schwab. We dropped the car off and went to Best Buy. At Best Buy I picked up Burnout Paradise and then walked over to Borders to waste time. After about two hours or so they called us to pick up the car. When we did they gave us a free box of various beef products which was pretty cool. I drove the car home and popped in Burnout.

The new Burnout is very different from the old ones. I’m still trying to get used to the “pick your own route” deal and making sure I turn on the right street going 150+MPH. Not the easiest thing to do. After about an hour or so of playing I hopped on Lego Star Wars to play with Tammi in Episode 1. The connection was off and on at first and then during the second to last level we encountered a pretty mean glitch that wouldn’t let us beat it so we had to start over. Once done with that level we got to the last of Episode 1. Here we ran into something worse. With the added lag and stuff it was hard to use our Force powers on Darth Maul during the battle. This led to a little frustration but we managed to make it through. Tammi and myself plan to continue our adventure later today.

As for today, I woke up and watched last night’s Stargate Atlantis which was really good and then loaded up Burnout. I unlocked some new cars and got a new license which made me happy. Right now I am downloading Service Pack 1 for Vista on my laptop. Hopefully it will improve performance and reduce some nagging load times. Don’t need any new problems. Other than that I expect an average day.
