Jobs, friends, mothers, birthdays, and betrayal...sounds like a hit to me!

     Tuesday I received a call from the Rent-A-Center in Vandalia about an application I turned in via in early September. I went in for an interview because he told me how much starting pay is, and it’s even more than what Cooper B-Line starts out at. So, everything went great. I took their little test to see if I was qualified, and then had an actual interview, and he invited me in the next day to have another interview with his boss. I said sure. Had that interview, thought it went pretty well, and no one has called me since. I called yesterday trying to get a hold of the first guy I interviewed with (because his boss said that the store manager, the first guy, actually got to make the final decision) but he was out to lunch. I left a message, but he didn’t get back to me. I kinda knew it was too good to be true.

     Yesterday I had to work 11-4 at Casey’s, but neither the girl who was supposed to relieve me from the register (someone I considered a friend, but now that consideration is in question) and the girl who was supposed to come in and do pizzas never showed up, so I ended up staying until 6 trying to call people to come in. The manager finally had to hire back a girl who quit a little while back to come in and make pizza. It was nuts. I was supposed to go shopping with my sister in Springfield, but she understandably had to leave without me because I didn’t know what time I was getting off. I finally did, then when she came back, we all went to the bar and had a few drinks ( I had vodka and 7up with a twist) and then I went home and had my first full night of sleep in about 3 days. We’ve all been staying up until about 3 o’clock in the morning playing cards. As a side note, I think I’m doing pretty well. I have yet to go out first (knock on wood.)

     So today, I have to make pizza from 10-2, and then my career at Casey’s is officially over. My last day before I start working at B-Line on Monday. And then later at about 4, we are all going to Six Flags. One of our friends got free tickets and is generously taking us all, we just have to drive. Fine with me. LOL

     P.S. Angie – how can you say that Adam finally got to see how unlucky you are? As far as I can tell, Adam got to see how exciting your life is! And he must be a nice guy if he emailed you to ask you if you were okay the next day! I can’t believe you never told me about this date! What happened to Wes? Love you!

     P.P.S. Today is my mom’s birthday and I’m completely broke and have no idea what to get for her. A card that says, “Dear Mom, thanks for all the money you’ve been giving me lately and the round-about gift of laundry detergent. Happy Birthday!”? Boo. Boooo!!!!

What Would Microsoft Do if Google Invented an OS?

There are some companies Microsoft is determined to defeat. The funny thing is that, despite what you might think, we are not talking about Linux, but about companies which will make lots of money out of fields not related to operating systems.

---I would definetly use an OS by Google! It would probably be extremely stable, always being updated with fresh new stuff... Can you imagine going to buy a computer somewhere and instead of it already coming loaded with the newest MS OS, they had to ask you what OS you wanted loaded on it? It would be so sweet.

This has got to be the most dangerous county to live in. People are going to go drinking and driving any time they want if they know they're not going to get in trouble for it.

I wish this little girl was up for adoption! I would adopt her in a second! How cool is she?

Yet another new job

     I was notified yesterday that they want to hire me at Cooper B-Line, and I’m going to take it. It’s a step up from where I am now, even if it is a risk. I can still look for another job while I’m there, and at least I know I’ll be able to pay the bills while I’m doing it. The next step: steel-toed shoes. They have some that look like tennis-shoes at Wal-Mart. Guess I’m getting a new pair of shoes!
Xbox 360 Kiosk Map
This a map of where Xbox 360 kiosks are located. Most of them are at Wal-Marts, which means one just might pop up at my local one. Hope so! I can't wait to see it up close and try it out. I already know I'm going to want one. I'd definitely sell my GameCube and games to get closer to the goal. Well, maybe... (I do love my GameCube)

Your computer for my groceries

     I had an interview at Cooper B-Line in Highland yesterday. They’re looking for a Shipping Coordinator. The pay is great (a 3 dollar raise from what I’m making now), the hours are great, and the job sounds easy enough for me to do (data entry). However, Highland is about an hour away, and with the gas prices so high, that will get expensive. Also, there’s no guarantee that it will be permanent. If I just do an average job, and they don’t really like me, there’s a chance I’ll get laid off. I don’t know what to do. If I stay at Casey’s, I won’t be able to pay the bills because they don’t pay well enough and the hours are shitty. If they want to hire me at Cooper and I take it, what if I get laid off in a few months? I hate being an adult. I hate having to be so damn responsible. Why can’t I just lay around the house all day and do nothing? Life is so short. Why do I have to waste it making money? Can’t we all just go back to the barter and trade system? I’ll fix your computer for some groceries. LOL

...and these...

I guess I've gone a bit logo happy onto Tivo stuff!

...and this...
This too...
I want this!!!

Stupid bitch

Whatever happened to common decency and manners in the business world? I’ve called that girl from Family Video I don’t even know how many times, since she told me she was going to call me back the next day and never did. I’ve left countless voicemails on her cell phone, and even left a message at her house! She could at least call me back and tell me that they’re not interested in me for the program! She doesn’t have to be a pussy about it! It’s not like I’m going to bite her head off!  AAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!

*deep breath* On a lighter note, the Nine Inch Nails concert is tonight!  Whoo hoo!

Thanks, Apple. Thanks a lot. I'm trying to get over my addiction to just having to have the most modern technology...and get out of debt. I hate you. And yet, I can't...stop...looking... LOL


My husband plays in a weekly pool tournament at a local bar. He told me that he doesn’t want me to go with him tonight because I’m bad luck. Doesn’t feel so great.

...I want this...
This site will let you virtual "make" a pizza, and will in turn show you the nutritional value of a slice or a whole pizza. Invaluable to a girl who makes a living making pizzas and is on WeightWatchers. lol
