Hey all! What a month this has been!
I’m still considered to be a “temp” worker, although I’ve been at my job almost 4 months now. Then again, some people have been at that place for over a year before getting to become “permanent”. Work has been steady, which is great for me, as some nights I can actually get some OT in….so that’s OK. The other job is going OK too – and yes, even though it’s fast food, it’s actually great to be around. I get a 50% discount on food and the hours are pretty steady. I still need to take some time and actually visit the ocean again – preferrably when it’s getting to be near sunset.
I did some exploring over the weekend, and found a bijou collectibles place that really takes me back to the olden days (like the 70’s and 80’s), and I found a poster for Liquid Sky that really must find it’s way onto my wall! The problems with the windows on the van persist, so I really must find a way of correcting that little issue, and soon. I’ve also found some places to find some nice clothes – and in my style too! Hmmm…perhaps this state DOES have some cool things to offer after all!
Man….what a week this has been! Working at the bank has been B-U-S-Y! OMG, I’ve not seen such activity in quite some time. Guess I got in my cardio this week! Working 2 jobs has been working out quite well, and even though my 2nd job is fast food, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be….quite relaxing by comparison really. Tomorrow is OT day at the bank, so I’m gonna catch some of that action, and get some more moola comin’ in, which should help get things smoothed out a bit.
I still need to explore Fullerton, but I’m sure I’ll get the chance soon enough….gotta get in another ocean trip too. Heck…we’re within an hour of it, so why NOT go, right? RIGHT?
It’s been a great week…….all the way through! Hugz to all my friends!
We knew it had to happen someday, and I’m glad the time is now! My wonderous friend, Ray-Ray, is coming up from San Diego to do a movie & coffee – woo-hoo! I’m excited about this! Now if we can just get our 3rd member, Steve, to come out, then the triad will be complete! It’s gonna be a hoot & a holler, that I’m sure of! I’ve needed this for about 4 months now, so I’m sure it’ll be way-kewl!
I finally found some GOOD goth stores down here in California, and pretty soon I’ll be checking them out in detail. Not to say the ones in Denver are bad (although I’m not mentioning ANY names, so don’t ask), I just think the ones out here are about 100 times better. I’m sure I’ll find whatever I’m looking for in Cali as far as fashion stuff goes. Heck….it’s a fashion nation out here unto itself, so that’s gotta say something! There are some people at the job I work at that are a bit “gothy”, so I showed them some of the stuff I’ve collected over the years, and they thought it was pretty cool.
I’ve collected some clothes from Shrine that are really quite cool, like some stuff that would seem to come from the Matrix – as well as some Axel rings that the artist created using a lost-wax casting process. Pretty neat stuff really. I’m just waiting for the right time to bring this stuff out and get it cleaned, prepped up, and ready for wear! My SQ stuff is going to be sitting idle for a bit longer, but that’s OK….I still have my spirit, and I’m not giving up the good fight!
I got a nice surprise on my schedule at my second job this week – more hours! This IS a good thing, as that means more money on the car payment checks, so it’ll be easier to cover the expenses that it brings along with the pleasure of having tons of room to move around. The BTO concert last Saturday was kewl! 30 years later, and they STILL know the meaning of rock and roll! I can’t wait for next year when Peter Frampton comes around. Heck….summerfest is a series of free concerts, so why NOT go? Right? Right?
I won’t know the outcome of the AOL resume for a couple of weeks yet, but in the meantime I still have my many hours at Wienerschnitzel and the full-time temp-to-hire gig at B of A (when it becomes permanent, I’ll probably never know *shrug*). At least they’re steady checks, so that’s all that really matters right now.
Time to go watch LotR again, so I’ll have to write about later on. Keep the faith!
