One Last Update

I'll be on vacation for most of the week. When I get back, I'll update.

A quick aside: DA, I wish you could be there, man. I'm really gonna miss you.

--Weasel, needs this vacation bad

Fuck You, American

Seriously, fuck you.

I refuse to fly your airline ever again. I hope you asshats go bankrupt.

I got a really cool surprise when I checked the mail today: my Mew DS (which I laid claim to most loudly) was sitting with the rest of the mail.

It's in pretty good shape, for a used game system. I just need to bust out my DS starter kit, which is sitting in a layaway, and find the Mew DS top cover (doink, found it, thanks be to Prime for braving a box forest) I ordered from the Pokémon Center and I'll be ready. Ready to wait for the next six months to pass so I can get my hands on Diamond and Pearl...or more accurately, whichever of the two I will actually play, as Prime will get the other.

Things seem pretty quiet on the job front. My transfer is now in motion. I have no idea when everything will be finalized. It may take a bit; I'm one of a large group of associates who are trying to transfer out. No one enjoys their jobs anymore.

We are hemorrhaging associates. We are down 30 cashiers, have fewer people on the sales floor and in ICS, and the management is now trying like hell to hire new people. Not that they'll last. New associates never last more than a few weeks.

Oh well, enough of the downer. I'm going to admire my DS.

--Weasel, thinking of getting a few DS games to help ease the pain of waiting. Trozei, Nintendogs, maybe Magnetica for Prime if he's good...

Steve Would NOT Approve!

Seriously, stop it.

Acting like this will not bring Steve Irwin back. And do you honestly believe he would approve of this behavior? I sincerely doubt it. So, whoever is doing this: knock it off. NOW.

End of Summer

The calendar may still say summer, but I beg to differ. The leaves are beginning to change, the nights are getting cooler, the days are steadily growing shorter.

This sucks.

I really didn't have a chance to enjoy summer and poof, now it's gone. Never got a chance to hit the pool or the lake. Never got a chance to take a nice, long walk in the park. Never got enough free time to do anything I wanted.

On the bright side, I have vacation (and BotCon!) coming up in a couple of weeks. Gods, how I need the time away.

It'll feel damn good to see my friends again, to hang out, shoot the shit, and forget about my lousy job.

BotCon can't come soon enough.

--Weasel, "Nineteen days and counting."

Fuck You, Disney

Seriously. Fuck you.

And a big old
go fuck yourself, Scholastic.

Gods, how I wish another studio had gotten the rights to distribute Studio Ghilbi's films here in the states. Then I could completely cut that craphole called Disney out of my life.

--Weasel, "The Ministry of Truth couldn't be prouder."

Fade to Black

"Conserving koala bears is easy. When it comes to conserving the nasties like spiders, snakes and crocodiles, and things that kill you and eat you, it's a different story to get people to value those animals. People say, 'What the hell are you conserving them for?' and he made a strong contribution in making people think a lot more about the values of conserving these animals."

So long, Steve. I'll miss you. You did one helluva job.
