More Ramblings

So what's happened since last time that's note-worthy.

I hate my job at Sears, but it's easy enough to stick out for a while longer... hopefully somethign comes from teaching in the fall and I don't have to look back.

Not much really has happened.  I worked out mandy's anniversary gift I think.  I hope she's not too mad that I'm out of town for it.  I do feel bad over it.

I've started work on teh slideshow/dvd of the camping trip.  It's starting to take a life of it's own on now.  Kinda scary.  Release date... TBA.  Tentatively a week or 2.  Hoping nothing else pops up.  It's beeen such a busy week.  What, with the car, my broken permanent retainer, 10 day stretches at work.  Grr...  This weekend should be a nice release.  READY TO PARTY!

Hmm... what else.  OH YEAH

So I've gotten THE uber stereo comment the other day.  Any audio-nerds out there remember the ad that polk had in the magazines?  It was a 2 pager, with one page one half of a duplex and a little old lady looking out her door to the other side.  Other page was the other half with a sorry looking dude and 2 police officers.  I had tha thappen.  Ror came over to watch Constantine with me and we had the windows open 'cuz it was bloody hot.  By 2am there was a rap at the little window.  I thought it was like Chris or sometbody wanting in.  "It's the cops" is all I heard.  Apparently neighbours 'across the way' are complaining of the loudness.  Awesome!

Let's hope mandy doesn't notice my 2 new speakers [replaced my older smaller ones].  Should get more attention from the cops now!  Not really.  Same power, just taller and slimmer.

Just got an email from Don, saying he's in town.  Which is very cool.

Last point... if you're a student, or ex-student of mine.  Please... please, do not think that if you see me in the mall you're entitled to HANG OUT with me.  Stupid grade 9s.

A new entry

So... how did the day start out... Hmm... Well, I do hate mornings.  Grr.  I had a chiropractic appointment and hten I had to be at work for 10:30.  For the first time in a while I wasn't more than 30m early to work.

But then it didn't matter, 'cuz that day sucked hard.  Let me ask you... blog viewers.  If you ordered a tv to your older relative in a far away city to be delivered to the home and you had just previously sent her a universal remote control, THEN the relative says [almsot 5 months down the line] that she didn't get the original remote for the tv... all she has is A universal remote.  Somehow this universal remote works for the tv.  So... according to the customer she's saying that TOSHIBA puts in it's box a crappy GE universal remote.  Or, that sears did it.   Not that the possibility tha tsomebody in the old folk's home replaced remotes or lost the original or something.  She's admitted tat the relative is old and losing it ... sigh.  Never been sworn at by an old lady I must say.  Threatened once that one would bring in her shotgun...

After that... jsut some typical running around...and then a warning about how i might be hugged in the future [won't get into it].

Ending the day watching A&E's Airline show... i feel good watching that show.

Plus a little ego trying to help Cindy and her issues.  I hope you feel better kiddo.
