Okay, so I'm probably one of the last people on the planet to get this done, but I have a NaNo journal up now.

[livejournal.com profile] misfiredsynapse, if you're interested in reading a crazy little YA thriller-with-a-bit-of-romance-that's-totally-based-off-of-an-actually-really-cool-RP-but-feel-free-to-ignore-that-bit.

If not, there, you can officially ignore it. :)

So, on my lunch today, on a whim, I picked up a dog magazine called Bark!

It had a poem in it that nearly caused me to have a conniption from giggling in the middle of the cafe. At any rate, I decided to share. Because it's an amusing poem on its own merits. (And DFers will more than likely identify the in-joke that made me nearly have a conniption from giggling.)

Clancy the Dog )

*snicker* Clancy.

Anyway, that is all!

Pure movie gold, my friends.

If you don't plan on seeing it...... change your plans.

Directly from #dfooc. Uncut cuz 1) It's not that long, really and 2) It just WINS THAT MUCH.

Erin> Gneil: ... Oh, really, which one?
Rainee> That is utterly the best single possible reply to getting that license XD
Erin> Justin: ... Neverwhere? (I loaned it to him a couple days ago.)
Erin> Gneil: Yeah, that's mine.
Erin> Justin: Actually, it was my sister who told me to read it...
Erin> Gneil: Well, would you like me to scribble something down for her?
Erin> I.
Rainee> K:JSDFM

Marika> DO TELL!
Erin> Or rather, an evening of them.
Erin> It was fine for the most part.
Erin> OKAY.
Erin> At around... 8, I think, I do a cash pickup from a drawer that has too much money. Get the money, take it back to the cash office, toss it in the safe, all is good.
Erin> About... fifteen minutes later, a customer wants me to unlock the DVD box sets for him. I'm like... SURE!... and then realized I locked my keys in the cash office.
Erin> Oops.
Erin> So I get Ben, have him open the door for me so I can retrieve my keys!
Marika> ...
Marika> Erin, you are stupid. XD
Erin> Oh, this gets better.
Erin> Then, at ten, I start closing drawers. Get the first two, count down the safes and the first drawer, all is well, go to the second.. realize that I left the checks and the hundreds that were under the till.
Erin> ... Have to go back for them. But that goes fairly painlessly.
Erin> Go get the next two drawers..
Erin> Come back...
Erin> Realize I locked my keys in the cash office AGAIN!
Erin> =D
Erin> At that point, I was like ......
Marika> ...
Erin> For the rest of the night, I obsessively checked my keys whenever I left that room. XD

For the record, the interview went well, in my personal opinion.

I also got to use the phrase 'Backstabbing lunatics' as WELL as the phrase 'So-and-so says you suck!'

So... Yeah. More power to me.

*cuddles Mr. Glitch*
dizmo: (df - never know)
Okay. So I'm off to work. Right after work, I interview for the open supervisor position.

I think I have a fairly decentish shot at it, but I'm still nervous as all hell. But perhaps that's as it should be.

Por favor, send me good luck vibes? XD

Mmmm.

... giving yourself a haircut is NEVER A GOOD IDEA.

...Yes. I am getting that fixed tomorrow.

Thank God I have a mother who at least comprehends a straight line.
dizmo: (nsync: chris jubilation)
Ahhhh, a beautiful concordance happened to me today.

1. Beginning of 5 day stretch of Borders Employee Savings Days. 40% off... pretty much everything.
2. Utilization of a 40 dollar gift card that had been given to me free as a result of our store's CSI results for the third quarter (that I got even though I didn't start working until after said third quarter.. ;)
3. Highest percentage of e-mail address collection for people with over 100 transactions for last week, thus entitling me to three free promo book copies from the GM's office.
(Corollary to 3: One of the promos available being one of the books I was planning to buy already utilizing number 2! Mwahaha!)

Final result of concordance:

There are just over 150 dollars worth of books sitting on my bed right now.

I spent just under 15 bucks to bring them home.

Life is beautiful.

....Pity I don't have time to READ them. XD
dizmo: (nsync: chris wooo)
It just popped up to remind me of my own birthday.

I should be very grateful.

... Or something.

*does a halfway to fifty dance?*

Aaaaaanyhoo..

Er. Spam post, to anyone who wants it. (Probably of special interest to DFers, but, y'know, all good!)
dizmo: (nsync: group awwww)
Okay. Time to sum up my positively fabulous weekend.

Thursday )

Friday )

Saturday )

Sunday )

That. Was such. A great. Weekend. The end.
dizmo: (nsync: group awwww)
I'm out like disco!

Anyone who'll be in Chicago.... See you there!

Wheeee!
dizmo: (nsync: group awwww)
My plane leaves at 9:40 tomorrow morning.

I plan on being at the airport at 7:30-ish.

This is roughly ten hours away.

Amount of packing done? ABSOLUTELY ZERO.

But my hair looks fabulous.
dizmo: (other - lemming)
But.. I totally fear what answers I might get.

Leave a one-word comment that you think best describes me. It can only be one word. No more. Then copy & paste this in your journal so that I may leave a word about you.


Oh, and... ALL FIVE CONFIRMED. THIS IS ERIN GOING SQUEE. ;)
dizmo: (other - me!icon)
... I've been around for a while. ;)

I'm about not to be.

Currently on my way out of town, four hours northerly to go camping for the weekend.

Just me, my brother, three other people, and The Great Outdoors.

Back Sunday.

If I don't get eaten by a mountain lion. ;)

Oh. My. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn.

*wibble*

For the first movie I ever went and saw a midnight (or, well, 12:40) showing for... I picked a DOOZY.

Damn.

*goes... to collapse in bed, or something*

SQUEE.

Platinum ticket has been purchased.

Section 110 Row AA, Seat 3.

*WIBBLE*

But... Did anyone else not have to enter their PIN? *confused*
dizmo: (nsync: chris such a geek)
My brother and I are officially going to go see Revenge of the Sith on Wednesday night/Thursday morning at 12:40am, after we get out of work.

He has three finals the next day. :b All mine are on Tuesday, so that's not a problem. But hey, it was his idea!
dizmo: (nsync: chris say cheese)
The few people I've asked thus far have given me the same answer. But I want a larger response-sample.

(And if you're one of those on my FL who will not remotely comprehend this question, feel free to ignore it.)

Since I have every intention of getting the expensive-CFTC-with-meet'n'greet-tickets (and, in fact, joining the fanclub JUST to do so...)... SHOULD I print out some HORRIBLE old euro-era picture for them to autograph, simply for the amusement factor?
