Saaaturdaaayyyy [24 Sep 2005|06:30pm]
Let me just preface this entry by saying that 30 Seconds to Mars is the best band EVER!

Anyways, this week has been okay i giuess...

Actually, i dont even feel like writing anymore cause nothing has happened.

Coldplay concert Sunday was cool....I was seriously too tired to really enjoy it though.....

Work is going so good I could fuckin like...i dunno, it's just something's changed, i dunno if it's the general attitude or what but I actually enjoy going to work....its awesome. I've gotta plan out an hour long (waste of time) meeting for tomorrow night about the stuff we went over in Orlando. woowoo.

30 Seconds to Mars [16 Sep 2005|01:59pm]

Back [16 Sep 2005|12:12am]
Okay so i'm fuckin back bitches.

I had, the BEST fuckin trip EVER!!

So much shit happened, I cant even fit it on here...i dont even know if I want to try...I'll just put some dotpoints to illustrate my point.

Okay, saw Adema play Monday night, Grace got on stage with them dancing, tried to crowdsurf, they dropped her, lol. Tried again, more successful second time around. They invited us up to their room to smoke out, and we totally did. Already drunk off our asses from my boss buying us alcohol out the ass. Great Night!

Second night was a free night. We went to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville....less fun night, more demure and low key. Everyone went to bed around midnight-ish. Not much drinking that night.

Third Night, had vendor night which is we go to a HUGE warehouse sized tent with about 200 different vendors and get free shit. I got the Back to the Future trilogy, Seinfeld Season 4, met Scott Ian from Anthrax and had him sign some shit, met Cary Kane (?) from Slayer and he's a total asshole (FUCK SLAYER) but still had him sign a t-shirt for me, and I got a TON of other shit like free DVD's and CD's and stuff. Then we went to Hard Rock Live and saw Tierra Marie, Paul Wall, and 30 SECONDS TO MARS!!!!!!!!!!!! Most of the acts only did 3 songs.....30 Seconds did almost a full set! IT.....WAS......FUCKIN.....AWESOME! It was absolutely the best live show i've ever seen. Jared Leto came down into the crowd and pushed through with everyone grabbing him...then he walked right in front of me and i totally got to touch him, which sounds like "woo" but its fuckin Jared Leto for christ sake...they totally rocked and made this whole trip so worth it. I los tmy voice from screaming and smoking like a chimney this week. I went through 4 packs of cigarettes this week....madness

I'm off tomorrow, but it's back to work on Friday....which i'm actually pretty fuckin bummed about. I had so much fun with the other mgrs in my district man, i didnt want to fuckin leave....it was so cool to be around other people who work for the company who are positive and dont bitch and moan about ever little fuckin thing. They arent fuckin negative all the time about new stuff the company is trying to do to keep the fuckin store open. It's just nice to be around other people who actually care about what they're doing and arent just in it for the paycheck. I'm supposed to call Jay from the Nashville store tomorrow to see if he and Tammy (our former DM) can get Coldplay tickets and meet me and Shelley there on Sunday.

But seriously, I learned alot about how to better run my store, and I'm actually really excited about Christmas coming up. They've got alot of new tools to help us get more organized this season, and I think it's gonna go waaaay more smooth than last year. Of course, the whole district was a mess last year. I had a new store on Dec 9th that did way more than my last store, we had a new DM, half the stores had brand new managers, the fuckin store i took had a whole store full of shitty employees and ZERO xmas temps AND it was fuckin trashed....it was just a mess, i didnt know where to fuckin start last year.....lol

Anyways, i need to take my ass to bed. There'll prolly be more later i guess. I'm off tomorrow so i'm sure i'll have plenty of time on my hands....

fuckin ipods [11 Sep 2005|08:31am]
[ mood | stressed ]

man, this morning....oh my god...lol

So, I got up at like 6am because I fell asleep yesterday night at like 8pm. So, i decided I'd better get my phone and my iPod all charged up because I'm flying to Orlando later today. SO i get the phone on the charger and i plug my ipod into the USB cable and iTunes starts to load up to update it and all of a sudden there's this "iTunes is unable to find all the files necessary to open. Please reinstall iTunes" so i was like okay....so i reinstalled it and tried to open it again and it was like "iTunes is unable to open and must shut down - Send Error Report?" and i tried over and over and I kept getting the same message. I spent the next 2 HOURS trying to figure out what was wrong with this shit and finally I figured out that my Quictime was fucked up that's why iTunes wouldnt start. So, I tried to uninstall Quicktime and it was missing the uninstall file, lol. So, i tried all this different shit and nothing was working and you cant JUST install quicktime anymore, you have to reinstall iTunes also, but the iTunes installer wont reinstall Quicktime if you already have it on your computer, lol. So as you can imagine at this point I was livid. I had to hold myself back from throwing the damn laptop across the room. FINALLY i find an older version of quicktime alone online and install it then uninstall all copies of Quicktime, then reinstall iTunes so it will install a new copy of Quicktime and voila it worked!

So, while I was doing all that I noticed there was a new version of teh iPod software so i go to download it and update my iPod and everything goes fine until it installs it on the iPod itself and it's like, unplug your iPod from teh PC and plug it into the wall charger to reflash the software, and i'm like MOTHER FUCKER!! So, the iPod wont work until i find the fuckin wall charger that i havent used since I got the damn thing a year ago. I turned my fuckin apartment upside down looking for that damn thing, and I finally found it tangles up in the cords behind the TV, which is actually the first place i thought to look, but I was like "There's no way it would be behind there".

This morning has kicked my fuckin ass....I'm already ready to go to bed...but, I've gotta do some laundry and finish packing..I just know i'm gonna forget something like shoes, lol...oh well...I've got a flight on 9/11, how well was I expecting today to go?

[ mood | blah ]

My sleep schedule gets so fucked up on my days off. I was up until like 5am yesterday trying to finish up the last 2 discs of Lost. I forgot to set the alarm, which I have to do even on my days off because I have the sheets over the windows in the bedroom so no light comes in, which means I'll sleep forever if I dont set the alarm. So anyways, I slept till 4pm, lol. Completely wasted my whole day off, which is no biggie because I didnt really have shit to do anyways. I did laundry on Monday and washed EVERYTHING I own. It took for fuckin ever because apparently everyone here does their shit on Monday.

People have the trickiest, most manipulative systems of doing laundry on busy days. Like, I dunno, I couldnt even figure out their systems but it's like once I finally got my shit washed, I couldnt get a dryer to save my fuckin life. I remember people coming in and getting their shit outta the dryer and then they'd leave but somehow there still wouldbe be a free dryer. Sneaky bitches. It's all good though, I had my "Chronicles of Narnia" book which I've been trying to finish forever so I got about 3-4 hours of reading in, lol. I fuckin hate doing laundry. I'd take it to a drop off laundromat like I did the last place I lived, but I dunno. I havent really seen any I'd trust....with my dirty ass clothes.

That new show, Weeds, on Showtime is pretty good.....

Not much else going on. It's now almost 3 in the morning and I havent even been up for 12 hours....

My boss is supposed to be coming to my store tomorrow to check on the remerch and see how its coming along or whatever. I dont see the point but whatever, guess he has to do his job. Doing remerches is ALL I like to do at my job, so of course i'm gonna be all over it. I dont like helping customers because they're generally all morons, I dont like merching sections because its boring and that's what part-timers are for, I dont like ringing customers because we have to offer then like 15 different things and you have to be all fake nice, which I'm actually quite good at. They should give out Oscar's for the best retail performances....I'd totally win..."Hi! Welcome to Sam Goody! What can I help you find today!?" "Oh I heard that Hootie & The Blowfish CD is REALLY GOOD!" "Yes, we have the Miss Congeniality 2 soundtrack right over here. I havent heard it but we sell out of it almost every week!" God...I'm so fuckin good.

I was talkin to Jon earlier and he was talking about moving to Knox after he gets a car. I dunno...at first I was excited and was like, i'll help you find a job (notice I didnt offer to HIRE him) and all this other shit, but now, especially after the "fight" we got into, I remembered how much we got on each other's nerves the last time we lived together. I mean, it got to the point that for the last 4 months we lived together we didnt speak at all. If he was home, i was either gone or in my room, and vice versa. I know it wouldnt work out anyways, I was just happy to have someone i've known longer than 6 months and doesnt work for me here in Knox.

I cant WAIT for Sunday! My flight leaves for Orlando at like 4:20pm (yay 420!) so i'm gonna be all anxious all day. I actually had a dream the other night that I woke up and it was the day I'm flying down and I only had 15 minutes before my flight left and I was seriously trying to pack my bags (with dirty clothes, this was before I did laundry, lol) and get to the airport before the plane left. And hell, you cant get anywhere in Knox in 15 minutes. I dont care if you're going to the store down the street...someone will plop some damn orange barrels in the road and call it a construction zone and you'll be sitting in traffic for a fuckin hour. I swear to god, that's why UT's colors are orange...they might as just go ahead and make those barrels the damn mascot and get it over with. Anyways, lol....Yeah I'm super excited for conference, even thought it just means sitting in freezing ass conference rooms, talking about the same old "This is gonna be the best year ever!", and fighting like a mother fucker to keep my eyes open. But we do have some kick ass performances at night though. I'm really looking forward to seeing 30 Seconds to Mars, I cant wait. I'm ready for that Coldplay concert on the 18th too. Good month. But seriously, it should be fun...it's always fun at conferences because you can talk about all the shit about your job that sucks with the other store managers in your district, which you can't really do with the people that work for you because they really dont have a fucking clue what your job is really all about. They just think you boss everyone around and are "lazy". They all think you're supposed to be out there doing all the same shit they're doing, even though you graduated from grunt work long ago. I mean hello, do you really think they're paying me almost 3 times as much as you to do the same shit? Anyways, lol, thats a whole other post.

Shit, i'd better go to bed. Peace.

The world is a depressing place.

Gas Prices are crazy, the gulf coast is basically toxic soup (which they'll be pumping into the Gulf of Mexico....Go Planet!), our President is a Moron, soldiers are dying in Iraq for no fuckin reason, the U.S. Govt doesnt work for the people anymore....

It kinda makes you wish it WAS the end of the world...

Worried [29 Aug 2005|06:39pm]
[ mood | worried ]

I talked to my Dad today. My sister and her husband just bought a house across the street from my parents. Apparently they got 8 inches of rain today and their house flooded, and the sinkhole in between my sister's house and my parents house is completely filled up so with the hurricane aimed right at them, they're gonna get alot more rain. I'm just worried that my parents house is gonna get flooded. My family completely moved everything out of my sister's house today and put it in the strage shelter at the church....I'm like freakin out and I dont even live there, lol. I'm just really worried about everyone back home :-(

Anyways, i've gotta go do some laundry so i'm gonna go, peace out

I should have gone home today....

I'm SO BORED!!!!!!!!

okay. [19 Aug 2005|03:30pm]
OKAY, i'm about ready to go home already....but on the other hand, I'm so ready to just stay here.

So, I got a new car yesterday. The guys at the Toyota dealership were laughing at me cause I just got my corolla a year ago there. I got an 05 Camry, it's black, sunroof, i'm in LOVE.

This has actually been a pretty good visit home. I've seen so many people I know everywhere. I miss knowing everyone, lol. Hell, i cant walk from the door to teh car without sseeing someone I know drive by. I went to lunch today with Jon (i know, i know) and we went to the Applebee's I used to work at. Freakin' everyone is still there. PLUS, there was this guy named Patrick that I kinda had a crush on in HS, and he's working there now. He came over and we were talking to each other for a bit about mutual friends, etc...(he's gay btw), but anyways, he left to leave and like 5 minutes later he comes back and was like "Here's my number man, give me a call this weekend, or whenever you're intown man, we should really hang out." I was like "Sure thing man" I looked over at Jon and he was slightly fuming which made me feel even better, lol. We have such a fucked up friendship, lol...or whatever the fuck you'd call it.

I went out with Shelley and Leslie last night to one of their friends houses. We cat outside and drank and cut up. It was fun, but it was too FUCKIN HOT and HUMID. My shirt was like stuck to me, I just felt gross. Plus, the fuckin mosquitos were biting the shit outta me, and the chick had like 5 little dogs, plus Shelley and Leslie's 2 dogs they brought. Fuckin dogs everywhere, it was alright though...i'm pretty used to dogs now, i used to be terrified of dogs after my neighbors dog attacked me in Middle School. Good times.

I dunno what i'm gonna do tonight...or the rest of the afternoon....I knwo for sure i'm turning off this soap opera shit that Jon's watching. Turn on some Teen Titans or Danny Phantom, lol

I have spent so much freakin money since i've been home. I'm kinda scared to check my balance, lol

anyways, i'm outta here.
