Which isn't all that exciting, to be perfectly honest. I've had another day where I actually woke up as early as I wanted to. Unfortunately, I haven't managed to get much done beyond a couple of chores around the house. On the other hand, it's still been a good day.

Today I decided I would finally fill out all the satisfaction surveys that have been piling up. Oh right, did I mention that I have a talent for getting satisfaction surveys when I go to places? I get one from Wal*Mart about 95% of the times I go there. I got one from Target when I went there the other day. I get them at Satellite Coffee all the time. So yeah, when I say I'm filling out all those surveys, I'm referring to about 6 surveys (I got through this exercise about twice a month). Anyway, I guess we'll see if I manage to win any of the contests this time around. I could definitely make use of a $5000 Target gift card or a $1000 Wal*Mart gift card.

Meanwhile, I've been watching "Super Size Me" on the instant Netflix. I already wasn't that into eating McDonalds, but damn. I can't believe he gained 11 pounds in the FIRST WEEK. If I wasn't opposed to eating fast food already, I'd certainly be a lot less likely. I should point out at this point that I only eat fast food a couple times a month. That is, of course, if you don't count pizza. I eat pizza every week or two. This movie is amazing. I think it's something everyone should watch, if only because it will make us all more aware of what kind of crap we're putting into our bodies. It makes me feel a lot better about my eating habits, even if I don't always make the best choices.

Because I just love this video... (and the song, of course).

Especially since it's a throwback to one of the earliest motion pictures... Le Voyage dans la Lune.

A guy in my british fiction class found this... I thought you all would enjoy it, particularly [ profile] killbox and [ profile] cryptosporidosi.

And it was virtually pointless. I got there at 945, and realized I'd forgotten my swipecard. This wouldn't have been a problem, except that they didn't have any more. Eventually I came across someone who had an extra (at about 1100), but still never got clocked in. Why? Because the guy I was supposed to follow got there at 1130 and then got us sent home at 1200 because we didn't have any tables. So basically I sat there for 2 1/2 hours training myself by working on these quiz things that are supposed to prepare me for the 12 page test I'll take on Tuesday. I may as well have slept in and not gone to work. So yeah... now I get to go back in at 400 and actually DO something. Which will be fine, but it would have been nice to sleep later than 800 this morning instead of going to work and not getting paid for it. Eh well... it would have only gotten me about $10 anyhow.

But yeah, other than the fact that in terms of the menu and such I am mostly training myself, things are going well in terms of the new job. I have been told by multiple people that about 95% of new servers cheat on the test. They have also told me various ways to accomplish this. So Monday night I will be getting that put together in order to take the test on Tuesday.

Other than that I had a chill night when I got off work last night. I didn't really feel like doing any homework or going out, so I watched The Piano on the Sundance channel last night. Very strange but good movie. And commercial-free to boot. I recommend it, if only for the great piano interludes through the movie.

Time to go write a paper though... Catch you kids on the flip side.

"This has been another fabulous report of 'What's New?' I am your host, Mando Calrission and you're listening to KMND, Mandy Radio. 'All Mandy, All the Time.'"

Something I can't quite pinpoint has me really irritable lately. I wish I could figure it out, because the negative emotions are spilling over into the good parts of my life. It's annoying.

My dog opened up my closet (because the door doesn't shut all the way) and chewed up my new sandals and a pair of underwear. I spanked him with the shoe and then tied the underwear around his head as punishment. Maybe that will help get it through his head that this is negative behavior on his part.

I went and saw Episode III at 1205 today. Definitely the best of the trilogy. It is quite impressive.

Feeling much better now than I was the past couple of days. Talked to Greg about things and got that worked out. A satisfactory conclusion.

Painted on Monday night for the first time in like two months. Turned out quite well and I think I might make another painting tomorrow sometime.

I need to quit procrastinating about my homework. This is not a good way to start the semester. After all, I'm only taking 4 classes. This shouldn't be such a difficult thing to accomplish. I mean, I have hardly any homework!

I didn't go to my English class at all this week. Which means I only get two more absences in there for the rest of the semester or I get dropped. That would not be good.

Well then. I think that is all.

Going to watch Altered States with [ profile] asleeponthesun and D. now.

So I was supposed to go to the movies with Renee and see The Forgotten at the dollar theatre on the west side. So not happening. I called her when I got off work at 9 and she still hasn't returned the call. Movie starts in 20 minutes and I'm still at home. Something tells me this isn't going to happen. Eh well, we've only been trying to see the film for about a month now, and such things keep coming up. Guess I shouldn't be that surprised.

The countdowns continue:
<2 days until VNV Nation
63 days until my 21st birthday (whoo!)
70 days until drunken spring break time in Daytona Beach with my sister

Things just keep getting better and better. I'm trying to focus on the positive anyhow. Believe me, there's plenty I could bitch about, but I don't think I will. Hmm... think I'll go paint something now. Catch ya on the flip side!

Again. But I'll get to that in a minute.

I went and saw Spiderman 2, and I must say I was quite impressed. I continue to find the storyline acceptable for that of a comic book to cinema translation. Definitely recommend it.

I found the past weekend to be more than slightly depressing. Hell, one might even call it pathetic in terms of the small amount of excitement I found myself involved in. But hey, such is life I guess.

Friday )

Saturday )

Sunday )

Mom called me this morning and we talked for a bit. For some reason this got me all worked up and I didn't have the best of days at work. I don't really feel like going into detail, but to say the least, people suck and I ended up leaving work early. Thus, I decided that since I don't have to work tomorrow morning I would come home for a couple days. Spent the evening running errands with Mom, watching movies with Mom and Dad, and finally talking on the phone with my sister for the first time in what seems like weeks. I also finally got a chance to talk to the Chad today and took the initiative to tell him some things I'd really been wanting to. He was stunned, but happy. We'll see where this leads. Naturally, I'll keep you posted.

Well then, I believe that brings us up to date. Mom is going to get me up around 8 tomorrow, so I need to get some sleep or I'll be positively exhausted all day. Besides, my typing skills right now are absolutely horrid.

Catch ya on the flip side.

All I know is that I need to regain my previous dedication to the LJ so that I don't have to make long/elaborate entries to make up for it.

But as usual, I don't really have time for one of those even now...

But here's the list... )

Quite a lot there, and yet so much more I can say.

I've shown up sporadically at [ profile] djsparkydog's house a few times lately. Always a good experience. We watched The Secretary the other night. A very good flick.

I watched an 90s flick called Singles with Rob the other night. That was a good one as well. So very true. He thinks it has the best soundtrack ever. It had some really good music on it, but I'm not sure I'm convinced. I'm still rooting for the soundtrack to Grosse Point Blank. But with something this subjective, I doubt we'll ever come to an agreement, or perhaps even a standstill.

Well then... I have loads of other stuff I've been meaning to get done tonight, so I must be going now.

I'll be back... hopefully sooner rather than later!
mandy12052: (Default)
So I took this funny quiz "Which fantasy/sci-fi character are you?" care of [ profile] djsparkydog and was looking at all the possible results. And I came across Inigo Montoya and couldn't help but remember his signature line and laugh in spite of myself.

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Geez man. I kill myself!

Well then. I'd throw more into this entry, but it's like 1 in the morning and I should probably think about sleeping sometime soon.

Catch ya later kids!


So yeah.

I should be getting in the shower right now and getting ready for work, but I don't really feel like going to work and thus am taking my sweet time. After all, if I actually rushed into getting ready it wouldn't take me as long anyhow. Oh yeah, and there's this really cool movie on T.V. that I'm watching (and that certainly doesn't encourage me to take a shower anytime soon). I just wish I knew what it was. I think it's called "The Transporter" or something to that effect.

So I painted this abstract piece, but I'm not really impressed with it. I've decided to white it out and start over. Of course, that'll help me get the thick paint effect I want anyhow, so it'll probably work out better.

Well then, time to be responsible and not be late for work.
mandy12052: (isis-osiris)
And I can't quite say why. I just feel centered. It's nice.

Oh, and I haven't coughed for about half an hour and that's always a good thing. *sudden cough-age* Damn. Spoke too soon.

Well then. Nothing particularly eventful has happened recently. I've been doing fairly well at work though, managing not to screw things up to much and that always bodes well for me. Makes me like my job. Especially considering how things were going earlier this week, I'd say it's all evened out now.

So it's getting to be warm enough outside again to be flip flop weather soon. I'm excited! I don't much care for wearing shoes and flip-flops are practically not shoes, so they work very well for me. Oh, and my birthday is in 17 days. Exciting. I wonder what I'll do with myself, if anything. Hmm... I'll probably end up working a little bit, but I figure that'll be more eventful than lazing about all day.

Suddenly I feel inclined to write about nothing at all.

Hmm, this music is so soothing. "City of Angels" is such a beautiful movie, wouldn't you agree?

Well then, I believe I shall take my leave in favor of reading Anne Rice and playing with Magnetic Jesus Dress Up.

Fare thee well.
mandy12052: (Default)
And so I immerse myself into another episode in which I allow the world to delve into the events of my life if they so desire. Wow, I think that was a run-on sentence. Oh well. I should be doing homework right now or mailing my car payment or something else of equal importance, but instead I have chosen to take my free time between classes to make an entry. Such is the addiction, although I must admit I don't get into this as much as I did for a while. I just have too much to do. I have homework, class, work, and hell, even people to hang out with when I'm free. It's fabulous to finally have a good friend base going.

Anyway, it's difficult to say whether things have been particularly eventful since the last time I wrote.

Let me begin by saying I had one hell of a time getting out of bed to go to my 800 math class this morning. That can easily be attributed to the difficulty I had in actually falling asleep last night. I think I finally managed to sometime around 130am, which allowed for a measly 5 hours rest before I had to get up. Other than that difficulty, I'd say today has been a pretty good day. (Yesterday wasn't too bad either, by the way, and I think I will really enjoy my tech writing class, but I'll get to that later.) However, I am slowly realizing that my classes may turn out to be a bit more demanding than I initially expected.

The long of it )

The short of it )

Well then, time to get to class, so I shall be going now.
