4 Day Weekends Ahoy!!!

I scheduled two of these using the last of my vacation/personal days. I already spent the first one with a new friend of mine. This past weekend went on a road trip up to Oklahoma to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] okidokicoyote. The only annoying thing was the 3hr. drive… :/ *gruffs* That was really my only gripe. He was going to come down the weekend after Thanksgiving, but had some car troubles. I had scheduled this a month or two ago and wasn't sure how to spend that first weekend and so I did that road trip. He and I have plans for something fursuit wise for the up coming convention Furry Fiesta here in the Texas area. I also recently heard some good news that their room block is close to full which is awesome. I'm glad I got my room reserved already!

This coming weekend I plan on being at my brother's graduation, and that will be another long drive… *grumbles* I wish it wasn't so far away, but *shrugs* cest la vie… I at first heard from someone it was a 3hr. drive, but seems from where I work/live it is only an hour and a half. I'm happy he's going to be graduated he's been chomping at the bit to be done with school. I may eventually go back for a master's degree, but not just yet. I have been enjoying this year of freedom from school.

I have plans next weekend trying to work out with a friend to come down to visit as I have another 4day weekend and he's been wanting to visit. He is also one of many I plan on visiting outside of a convention.

So… Here is my trip recap!

A thunderstorm blew through last night and seems we're in for some colder weather. I want this week to be over already. I want to have it be my brother's graduation time and give him a royal celebration for staying the course and finishing and not settling for that inferior degree and getting his Bachelors of Fine Arts. I'm very proud of him. I just wish things weren't so hard on him, he's been struggling to get a job in his field and I've been having a hard time myself finding a job in my course of study too.

Well I thank you all for reading… I know it was long, but I like to keep this journal and write things like I do to try to preserve memories and to let you all know what is going on in my life. I sometimes am not the most attentive to everyone in LJ I know I don't comment as often as I should but I do try to read… I had a lot of things to catch up on as this past weekend I pretty much was making sure NOT to be on the internet.

Take care! *hugs* I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!

MFF Con Report

I know this report is a little late. I’ve just been busy with Thanksgiving stuff, and things of that nature dealing with getting ready for this holiday season. I also worked “Black Friday” even though I had it off last year, but truthfully 2.5x pay isn’t so bad you know. I really did enjoy MFF and here is my recounting of the experience. Oh and if I forget some names, please remind me as it's been a while... I can't remember everyone... It was an awesome convention!Read more... )

So there you have it my belated con report. I've been doing lots of cleaning and I’m currently in the process of sending out Christmas gifts and other things like that and all the preparations for this Holiday season.

Texas Renaissance

I know I haven’t posted in the past week I’ve been a little busy… I just wanted to post about the fun weekend just had going to the Texas Renaissance Festival! It was a fun weekend and camping trip. I’ll need to make sure to be a bit more prepared next time around camping wise though…

I bought a sleepingbag that was pretty interesting with an inflatable pillow that has a felt cover so that you’re not exactly sleeping on slippery plastic. I left after work @ 4:30 and got over to Celyddon’s apartment. We got things packed and left with Savrin in tow, we spent the night Friday and Saturday and came back Sunday. The traffic was horrible getting out of Dallas , and unfortunately even though we left first another group consisting of Guardian and Jen got there before us. *shrugs* We met up with Neil, a friend of both mine and Celyddon’s, who was already camping there for the weekend. We got our tent setup by car headlights and where some people went to sleep I went out with Neil to the bonfire that evening and spun fire. He is a fairly accomplished staff spinner and we had some fun spinning and even doing one move together that set the crowd wild. We couldn’t get near the bonfire at all because of the crowd around it. Had some fun, gave the crowd a show, and then went to bed. It was cold and a bit uncomfortable, but did finally get to sleep.

Saturday morning got up, made some breakfast and got ready for the fair. The rest of the group that was going to join us that didn’t arrive the previous night were joining us today. It was also the birthday of a person in Neil’s group and we wished her a happy birthday. We then split up for the day. I was primarily with Guardian, Savrin, Jen, Celyddon, and some here and there got split up from them when looking at a shop here or there. Met up with my other roomie and roamed the fair together. We did meet up with the other half of the large fur group that was coming and met up at a booth that is also run by furs as well, a tail shop of all things. *chuckles* We even had a group photo done. I did bring my camera and tried taking interesting photos of things for a couple friends who wanted me to photo the experience. I didn’t take a lot of photos, but did of some things like an interesting dragon costume, a centaur, and things like that. The Texas Renaissance Fair is very fantasy oriented, and a lot of costumes people come up with are amazing.

We did some shopping. I picked up a tankard holder that has a pewter wolf on it, as well as a wolf necklace to add to my collection. I also tried out a new pair of boots that will be shipped to me shortly. I was allowed to wear the boots the day to see how I liked them, and all. They are part of a costume that I wanted to wear, but one major piece didn’t make it. :/ *shrugs* Cest la vie, the outfit I was wearing was one I have constructed out of years of buying bits and pieces of costume pieces. I’d kinda say it is a mix of lower class noble, bard, and pirate/swashbuckler. I even have a replica flintlock pistol that I forgot that I plan on adding to that costume. We did make sure that Savrin and Jen were subjected to the Dead Bob Show. *snickers evily* We had some food and drink at the fair. I did try a new concoction that I think was part of the theme of the fair this year, called a “Romantic Drink”… It was tasty and all, but nothing all that “special”. Not like anything of that nature is “real”… I don’t believe in a lot of silly things like that, like love potions, or much on the whole “love” thing in general. *shrugs* :P It came in a souvenir cup and I left it with Amara… and forgot to bring it home. I’ll have to see about how to get it sent to me. We attended a cool pirate auction, and I won an item with a raffle ticket and got a real neat oriental fan! I did attend a bit of a joust and took some pictures, and accidentally missed seeing one side of the fair because we got informed that our campsite had been messed with. So we left and found that it was most likely wind that did it, nothing was stolen, and went back in. We missed the raffle for another giveaway, but no biggie. I went back to the boot store and gave them back to put on a new sole, and got my old boots back. I re-laced my current boots up and got out in time to watch the fireworks and then went out of the fair, got back to the campsite and the large group of us got food going.

It was nice hanging out with the large group, even though I hardly knew anyone. Once we were well fed, Neil, Celyddon, another poi spinner, and myself went to go spin fire at the big bonfire. We first stopped off at the next door campsite who helped Neil take such a large area for all of our group. We gave them a private fire spinning show and then all four of us went out to the bonfire and had a lot of fun. I posted two videos, one of me, and one of Celyddon spinning. I haven’t posted the group spin though. When we first got there, to kinda dazzle the crowd we all four went out at once, and that got everyone away from the bonfire and watching us. That was quite fun, and then we each individually spun here and there. There were a couple of other fire spinners out there, one with a staff, and another with a fire sphere for contact juggling. One of the guys did not know his own limits and definitely should not have been doing fire at all… *shrugs* We had one last group spin before calling it a night for the fire spinning. I stayed around the bonfire played some percussion adding to the drum circle there, and then eventually went back to the campsite, talked with people before going to bed.

Sunday got up early, which was weird. I slept fairly well, better than Saturday night, as I learned a vital secret to keep warm, and had breakfast that was prepared by people there and packed up, tent and everything. Said goodbyes and left for home. We made one stop off and then got back into town around 2-3pm. Then eventually went home, met up with my brother for a bit… Definitely found his weekend wasn’t the best for him. *grumbles and growls* We spent some time talking about things though over pizza. I just wish things would go right for him, and for myself in some regards… In the end, such is life and life goes on.

Oklacon Report -- Long Overdue

Here is my long overdue Oklacon report. I had tons of fun at this convention and more than likely will return next year. The theme definitely has my interest I’ll say that much. This was my first outdoor con and for next time I think I should probably get some sandals for my fursuit footpaws in retrospect and be sure to watch the terrain better. I met a whole lot of cool new people and had tons of fun. I’ll post about my awesome weekend at the Texas Renaissance Festival next post.
Read more... )
Sorry about the time it took me to write it, as I got busy and had some other things come up like going to the Texas Renaissance Festival before fully writing this out. I know it’s a lot to read, but I like to be thorough and even then I still forget things, people, and other stuff so I apologize in advance.

I have plans to hang with friends this evening and watch movies. What better way to spend it... Well I can think of one or two other good ways, but being with friends is always awesome.

Oh, saw some other people posting this meme and I decided to bite... So this is my "Halloween Treat" to you all. :)

Camping Craziness!

Just got back from Oklacon! I had a lot of fun and may return again next year if able to. :) Just wanted to post that I'm back. I'll post a con report later, but I want to thank all the Oklacon staff for the fun time, and all the new furs I met! You all made it a fun experience! ^_^

Haunted Happenings

Last night was pretty fun actually. Went out to Screams with a group of friends. We had a grand total of 10, 2 shy of the group rate, but I was very happy with the turnout. We got there around 9pm and went through all the attractions minus the one you had to pay a bit extra for. We all had a lot of fun, though while waiting in line for one of the newer attractions the line pretty much went to a dead crawl because it looked like someone assaulted one of the workers. :/ Stupidity abound it seems especially at a place where alcohol is involved because at the concessions they sell beer. It is at the same grounds that Scarborough Fair is and it is legal. I just am annoyed that someone would assault a worker. You go there to get "scared" or whatnot. In the end as I said went through all the rides, it was good hanging out with friends. Going to be doing laundry and whatnot this weekend and get ready for Oklacon next weekend.

Frightful Friday

Since there is no gaming this Friday I propose to my fellow local friends the possibility of going out to Screams as this will be the last weekend before Oklacon to do anything for Halloween before the actual Friday of that particular magical and scary night.

I propose we meet at Savrin's apartment as a gathering point to carpool from there and leave around 8pm. I know a couple people like [livejournal.com profile] guardlion wants to join and he gets off work @ 7pm. Costumes are optional. I'm not sure if I'm gonna dress up.

Any who want to go don't have to carpool with us, and we should be at there around 9pm. I hope to see people there. ^_^

Birthdays and Stuff

I just wanted to wish a happy birthday to the awesome [livejournal.com profile] dingybatty!!! :) I hope you have fun today and all the best of wishes. *hugs*

The past weekend was actually very eventful. I hung out with a local group of furs on Saturday for the usual "First Saturday Meet" I even picked up a Wii Fit that I've been searching for. I've been looking for one for months actually. I still have yet to play with it, but I think I'll try to use it to help in the interim of not going to the gym as our apartment still has no deal with the local gym after the gym went 24/7. They have an issue with the gym being unstaffed after a certain point even with all gym members having to sign a waiver and understand that there are times when it is not staffed. *shrugs* I may just up and pay a regular membership as I just want to get back to working out and such.

Sunday I went with a group of friends including one of [livejournal.com profile] savrin's co-workers, to the State Fair. The outing in general was quite fun indeed, it was a shame though that my brother wasn't able to join and his bf from out of town. We saw lots of people selling wares, ate some interesting foods, including the new "fried" thing there chicken fried bacon. It is just regular fried bacon that is then battered and fried. Nothing all that great in my opinion. Rode some rides, as well and won't soon forget the cramped ferris wheel. *snickers* Lots of fun antics were had by all parties, also had fun with a roller coaster, some bumpercars, and a centrifugal force machine. Then afterwards I ate dinner with my brother and his bf, then watched the movie Iron Man.

The rest of the past month has been uneventful, though gonna hang with friends tonight to wish a local a happy going away. Hope he comes back to Texas soon as he seems to yo-yo back, leaving for a bit and always coming back to Texas. :P This night bodes to be much fun.

What's Been Up With A Wuff

I know my last post was mostly fluff, but here is a regular post on what things have been going on here lately. Oh and check out my Fur Affinity account as one of the recent submissions is in reference to my previous talk like a pirate day post about some, visual "treasure". Had photos taken by Regek near my apartment at the lake, trying to make a RL version of a pic I had commissioned a few months ago.

Truthfully... everything else in life? Not a whole lot out of the ordinary. Things are ok. Nothing worthy of note... I wake up, go to work, go home, and the regular routine there. Still looking for another job. I'm going to again revamp my resume again, but current work schedule 8am - 5pm makes interviews kinda hard to schedule. Speaking of jobs and interviews Celyddon got a new job and recently had a friend gathering to wish her well with this new job. On the homestead side, I recently visited my folks with my brother as it had been over a month since seeing them and had a good visit. I have also hung out with the local group of friends here and things like that.

I haven't been able to work out here recently like I've been wanting to as our apartment's agreement with the gym we've been using expired. The gym went 24/7 and there are times it is unstaffed which made our apartment not sure if they wanted to continue their relationship with the gym. So what this means is either go find another gym, sign up as a regular member to the current gym, or just do some workout stuff around the apartment, like a situp, pushup, and that kind of routine. Maybe our apartment will get another workout room... Hopefully some decent equipment and not let kids ruin the stuff and keep tighter security. Means I don't have to leave the complex to workout. :P

One gathering of note was a recent party held at Damien's apartment. The place was packed! Lots of friends, new and old. Lots of fun was had. We were also kinda wishing Spike a fond farewell as he is moving away from Texas (but hopefully only for a little while). He's moving for some good reasons, job & to be with someone. I wish the best of luck there. In the end the party was much fun and next time I'm going to bring my fursuit. :P One other person brought theirs and I'm gonna bring mine next party. This should definitely be interesting. ^_^

I also recently got some new toys from flowtoys to play with. I got a set of crystal poi with flow handles and another set of handles to interchange if I don't want light up handles. I'm still working on trying to get some behind the back stuff, and with Celyddon was teaching my brother the other day as well.

My Xbox360 had problems and I had to send it off to be fixed. I should have done like what Loiosh said and said it was 3red rings, but I didn't... :/ Ah well it's gonna get fixed that's what matters. I've got other things to enjoy besides video games and whatnot.

Con wise I find that I might possibly be able to go to Oklacon, but that depends on rooming arrangements and riding stuff to and from the convention. It would be my first time there at that con. MFF is still a go and I used some of my airline miles for a free trip so all is good. The outdoors stuff definitely appeals to me as I have another friend of mine wanting me to go to Feral. There are some others starting up a new outdoors kind of con in 2009 that people are wanting me to attend as well.

Not much else really... No real big news.

SPORE!

I decided to ante up and get the game. It is actually pretty fun creating things. I bet lots of other people with better 3D modeling can make better stuff. I have seen some very well put together animals. This is actually pretty fun. The game doesn't fully live up to the "hype" that they were building up, but it is a fun game regardless and is cool to mess around with building things and whatnot. If you have an account lemme know your name so I can add you. Mine is GeminiTempus as sharing the account with my brother.

EDIT: Yea I know about the DRM crap but I'm not gonna let that crap keep me from enjoying a game that is fun and interesting. I haven't gotten past the Tribal stage yet and cant' wait to get to civilization and space. :)

Gaming and Work

Work today was horrid right from the get go. When I first got in @ 8am, we had over 250+ in queue and it seems there was some kind of outage, but I bet most calls were being routed to our center. I couldn't believe my eyes at that... *grumbles* No use in really whining about it... I just gotta take calls one at a time and all that... Speaking on work though... I’ll be starting my new schedule this Sunday with weekends off. working 12pm - 8:30pm most days, and working 39.5hrs a week... :/ Lame, but hey at least I'm not working mandatory OT like the full time people... I like having a life thank you.

In other news… today is also my last day of taking the steroid drops for my left eye. Since I got off @ 4:30 yesterday I hung out with Storm for a while. He was nice enough to offer to pick me up at my apartment after me helping drive him home a few times. We had a few hours before our usual Friday night D&D gaming session so we went to a mall and tried going to a gaming store that I bought some dice at a number of months back and turns out the store wasn't there anymore and closed. :( Quite lame, but at least I knew the direction of the store and where it SHOULD have been. *shrugs* I guess I'll have to find another store to pick up dice and stuff.

Gaming last night was pretty fun, nothing out of the ordinary, though the fluff was getting over being sick from getting con crud from A-kon. Other stuff I've paid off the LASIK surgery and after today I can start swimming! I've also been putting together a project with my brother for another fursuit that is going to be "just for fun" with a group called the [livejournal.com profile] drinkfoxes... ;) Will have to see what comes about with this as I've been working with [livejournal.com profile] joecifur on this...

So that's kinda what's been up. I've also been kinda wondering about some friends of mine as I haven't heard from a few in quite a while... Hope things are going ok.

Project A-Kon Report

This con was huge… It has certainly grown the 8yrs I have been attending it. I was looking at all my badges and I am still blown away how long I've been going to this convention! I've seen many things change, like hotels, and everything else. One thing I am not so happy about changing wise has been things dealing with costumes and weapons. I also changed how I did things at the con. I usually just "attended" and I got into dressing up and cosplaying like so many there thanks to the work of my roomie and Amberlee. I started doing that about 3yrs ago actually. It's just interesting looking back… :P Ahhh good times and stuff. That aside The long and short of it all this con was pretty good. There were over 15,000 attending here in Dallas and it seems that A-kon has gone more from an anime con to many things like Dragon Con and such…

So there is my con report... My next update is going to be a more introspective one I do believe...

Second Burn!!!

So... last night I went out with my brother to a club a few of my friends invited me to come to after last Saturday's party. It seems Wednesday nights are when in back they break out a drum circle and want people of all kinds to spin fire. We got there around 9:40 after picking up some food. It was an absolutely wonderful experience I must say and I plan on definitely going there more often. It has definitely given me a lot of inspiration to get even better spinning wise... Met someone who was quite a sight who spun fire and did fire breathing. He was also QUITE full of himself, and some the guy had right to be... He was thin, tall, and had a decent build... He was wearing a set of leather, full arm sleeves held by a ring in the middle... Quite flashy I must say... He even laid his fire staff on the leather for a bit for a bit of show... So as I said, he was very confident... There was also a lady who was getting over being sick, but wanted to be there to spin fire and she was quite a sight indeed. I still have to say Amberlee was the best poi spinner there that we saw... Some of our group left early and the lady and fire staff spinner let us use their can and oil lamp to fuel and light up. We didn't stay that late and other people who do fire or glowsticks came right as we were leaving around 11pm. I still semi wish I had stayed later, or gone back, but after getting home I didn't feel like driving back out there again.

So... Here is a video to go along with the pictures taken last Saturday!

I know it's sideways but I uploaded this raw from my camera. Anyone know of a good program on a mac to edit and fix this I would love to know what I need to do. I just wanted to upload it to get it out there for you all to see!

Birthdays are in order!

Oh... I wanted to wish both [livejournal.com profile] shadowtxhorse and an awesome Aussie tiger friend of mine [livejournal.com profile] darkentiger a wonderful day. I hope that there are no tricks, but you both have lots of fun my good friends. *hugs to the both of you*

I just wanted to say that I hope everyone has fun today and don't pull off too many tricks on people... You know what happened to the boy who cried "wolf"! :P

I also sent off for some fire poi, some leathers to wear while fire spinning, and measurements for turning my fursuit into a partial so I can wear raver pants and stuff while in suit. ;) One word... POCKETS... well lemme make that even more 'geeky'... POCKETS OF HOLDING! ;) I am still thinking of LASIK as it would be great to wear my fursuit and not have to worry about glasses and stuff. :>

Walk through the fires of hell...

And not get singed... That is something that I did last night actually. I will get to that part in a bit though... Work was just a normal day, and after it I went to a party held by a cool friend of mine that I used to game with and have hung out with on occassion, but normally only at the parties he's held. I'd love to try to hang out with him more often, as well as other friends. I hope we do keep in better touch. The party was a blast... I brought some nice vodka and others brought other alcoholic beverages of all sorts. There was much food and merriment. The party was kinda in celebration to an engagement that in everyone's opinion took far too long for him to propose to this lovely woman who he's been seeing for about 3yrs. now. So it was definitely "about time"! :P *chuckles* We even celebrated "Earth Hour" by dimming the lights for a bit too... Even google yesterday was black instead of it's normal white! :P

I found out that he still does that "Blues Dancing" and I truthfully need to find out where some of that is around here locally to just hang out and whatnot... They talked about some meet in Austin, but I don't think I'd go down there for dancing... I'd have to plan for other things, and there's a good fox friend among a few others I know in the Austin area and I have been meaning to visit at some point, but haven't yet... I'd rather visit for friends and not dancing, and I will at some point.

I met a lot of new people at the party, and one guy I met had his girlfriend who was just learning to spin poi and they brought some toys and because they brought toys another friend of mine rushed home and came back bringing his fire toys. Before the fire began I was helping teach her some... Perhaps our paths will cross again, but I can refer her to a much better teacher than I as I want to learn more moves from her... *chuckles*

Now onto the burning part! :P The part that you all have been waiting for... My friend brought a fire staff and fire poi, and after a bit of talking over things and making sure about safety I decided "why the hell not", along with the girl, who I was teaching, and her boy friend thought that I was "good enough" to spin fire... So I did... and it was my "First Burn"! @_@ I was definitely a little antsy and unsure of myself... I followed my friend's instructions on getting them soaked with fuel and then spinning off the excess. My friend started his fire up first and used his staff to light the fire poi. I stayed with some real basic moves and didn't even touch doing any behind the head moves or really anything over my head. I do have to say this... It was VERY fun! I can definitely see the draw to spinning fire. I was a little 'afraid' of the accidentally lighting myself on fire, but after actually spinning it I see the draw to those who do it. The sound of the fire spinning, the smell, and everything else... I think I will get myself some custom fire poi and begin spinning fire myself after this experience. That way I can do more tricks and be more confident while spinning fire... So now I can say... Yes... I have graduated to fire! ^_^

Pictures will be coming soon as there were pictures taken! :)

Speaking of fire... I hope that the birthday candles did not destroy the cake [livejournal.com profile] pacerfox! :P *snickers* Bad joke, I know... I am wishing you a happy birthday and do hope we can hang out at some point outside of a con. :)

Comings and Goings... and SNOW!!! What a rush!

Yesterday was quite an eventful day indeed. Just a couple days ago I was told by my brother that his friend Beowulf would be in town and arriving on Thursday. I was definitely overjoyed at this as he is a very good friend of mine and so cool he was going to be in town, just the only snag was that this same weekend I also had my friend [livejournal.com profile] cassen_grrrl coming in on her way to Mexico. The other big thing that happened was that here in Texas we had a very freak snow storm come through on a severe winter weather warning. I got to work just fine at 8am, and it was my short day so I worked till 12pm. I found out that Beo already got into town and had breakfast with my brother so I let him know when I got off and he was surprised I got off early so we made plans to meet at a Jason’s Deli near my apartment.

The weather was very trying to say the least. Around 12pm it was more wet rain than anything else, but while we were eating that rain turned to snow. I ate lunch with Beo and his friend Cebelius who drove him in. Those guys were driving for over 30hrs, coming down from Maryland. Cebelius has actually lived in Texas and had some other reasons for coming as he may be looking into trying to start up classes, Beo, wanted to visit my brother, and me as well for his birthday which is tomorrow. So yea this weekend definitely got jam packed in short order.

After lunch we stopped off at my apartment. I took Beo there as Ceb wanted to stop off at some of his stomping grounds and talk to some of his friends. He joined us an hour later. While at the apartment I showed Beo a number of things, and we exchanged interesting stories and then Ceb joined us, and instead of going to dinner with us he had made other plans which was fine as well. We watched other videos and I was totally surprised by his reaction at one point to something I wanted to show him, but hey… I guess some people are just a little “scared” of things… It took me a bit to get him to actually watch it as he at first thought I said something odd. *shrugs* He liked the vid and stuff and showed me a number of vids as well. Then he left for Denton and my roomie Bob got in and I invited him to go out to eat with us, which he did. My other roomie we invited, but he wasn’t able to attend, mostly due to the weather.

We had an awesome time as the restaurant we chose was the Magic Time Machine. I made the reservations originally for 8pm hoping that Cassen would be in on time, but her bus was delayed. My brother picked her up as he works in downtown Dallas and he waited for her and got to the place as quickly as he could. We got to the place at 8pm, and just waited for my brother. While waiting we walked around the place as every single booth has a theme. Some booths are small, some large. There are places like you can eat inside a lunch box, or a pumpkin, or themed rooms like the illuminati room. :P (one of my favorite rooms) We got seated around 8:20, after receiving a call from my brother that they were almost there. We were seated in a tiki hut that had crayons as posts as well as wooden posts and were served by Jack Sparrow, and we were visited by other fun characters in passing like the Mad Hatter, Wonder Woman, Sinbad, Napoleon Dynamite (who scared the heck out of Beo, along with the Mad Hatter), and Woody. The place is just an experience one has to enjoy at some point in their life and before I knew Beo was in town I wanted Cassen to experience this place and seems as though she had been wanting to after hearing me describe going here after my graduation.

Five of us split a Roman Orgy, which is a wondrous feast and they had a fanfare and the staff seemed to love playing with us and we joked back as the servers are supposed to “play” with the guests while “in character”. If I were to ever try for a part time job… I’d love to work there just for fun. *chuckles* We even had them sing happy birthday to Beo and Amberlee even though their birthdays aren’t until Saturday/Sunday, but since we were celebrating in general, might as well and they even sung their renditions of “the birthday song”. After dinner Amberlee left for home as she worked early at 6am and was thinking of calling in as with the bad winter weather the roads might ice over. The rest of us went back to my apartment.

At my apartment Cassen got to meet my other roomie. Then before I turned in we played a bit of Rock Band to have a bit of fun, and then Cassen crashed on my couch. I helped with getting her a cab as with my work schedule changing a couple weeks ago from 2pm – 10:30pm to 8am – 4:30pm I wasn’t able to drive her there myself as originally planned and the roads were not slick so I am here at work. I called her on my first break and found she had gotten into the cab and was on her way and by now should be on the bus and on her way to Mexico. She wants me to visit, and I will at some point, but I have a whole bunch of people I need to visit.

Beo is still in town and after work I’m gonna pick up my friend Teser from work and take him to [livejournal.com profile] savrin’s apartment for gaming. I may be late as I will be going for dinner with Beo and my brother at The Cheesecake Factory, that they planned on going to tonight.

So far this weekend definitely turned out to be jam packed… that’s all I gotta say! I’ve not had a weekend like this in quite some time… Quite a lot of it off the cuff, something I’m not really used to and spur of the moment. I’ve managed ok, but *sighs* I don’t think I let my roomies know about these plans, and I thought I had when Cassen first planned coming through here on her way to Mexico staying the night… I think I may have gotten [livejournal.com profile] guardlion mad at me… Perhaps I’m just over thinking… *sighs* If my head wasn't screwed on properly I think I'd even leave that behind sometimes... I can be such a scatter brain sometimes...

Other than that things have been going great! ^_^ The weather shaped up nicely after I got to work and stuff. I can't wait to get off... I have to pick up my friend Teser, since his car is in the shop. Then I have those dinner plans and gaming. Yea... definitely jam packed.

Errands and stuff...

I got a whole lotta errands taken care of today. I mailed off a number of things like a letter to one of my aunt's, something for an ebay auction, and shipped off something to WhiteWolf for some fursuit stuff. I also returned RockBand and the stupid Circuit City right near me said yes I could return it, but had to purchase the new one at another store so I drove to the one in Denton. So I have the new set of instruments that I haven't opened yet. Had a good time though before doing errands talking on the phone. Had a good talk with someone very close and special to me. :)

So I'm back home and things... I'm gonna try out the new RockBand and see how the guitar works. Other than that the past two days have not been anything "exceptional", but not bad either. Yesterday had Amberlee over and we watched some Elfen Lied. Then later we got food at Ban Thai and went to the usual Tuesday meet. Nothing real special. I do rather enjoy hanging with friends... I'm working on finding other stuff to occupy myself with as well for sake of stuff to do really...

Oh and here is a funny meme thing I saw being passed around...

I don't think I'd ever charge for such, but this little quiz was a riot and funny to take. I probably got a lower score because it was me judging myself and I am a very harsh critic. :> In any case I'm gonna keep this short... Take care people.

Daily Happenings

The past few days have just been fairly regular actually. Received some stuff I ordered from ebay, and did receive something from a new friend made @ FC. I was a little surprised especially considering only barely meeting the person. Though FC was truthfully the first time for me meeting quite a few people who I definitely hope to keep in better touch with and get to know better friend wise and such.

Yesterday was just another "SSDD" at work... I don't look forward to coming in, and things like that. The only "good" thing you could say was that my direct supervisor called me in for a "coaching" going over my month's stats, and looks like I'm doing well actually. Looks like I've been bringing down my AHT (average handle time), but still not happy about how work has been in general. I don't like the idea of having to brush off customers and get them off the phone in 13min. or less. At least it was a bit over an hour off the phones and we did talk about some interesting philosophical/religious stuff... Anything to keep off the phones... I so am looking forward to hearing back and getting interviews from companies I put my resume in with at the recent job fair I was at. I at least have one interview with one of the companies on campus February 26th. If they are the only ones offer me a job right here quick... I'd take it in an instant just to get away from my current dead end job...

I spent last night after work with friends at the usual movie meet that I've not really been able to attend with my current crappy work schedule. We watched Casino Royale. It was good hanging and being social on a Saturday night. Did get to speak lots with Amberlee on a few things. After the movie we did watch an awesome music video, and then I went home and played a bit more Lost Oddysey. If any of you are RPG fans and have a 360 I'd advise getting the game.

Other than that, can't wait for my "weekend"... I'm not sure about looking forward to Tuesday or not though... :P No real plans or anything... My schedule kinda makes things hard to plan around anyway, as does my brother's school schedule.
