Life goes down the hole.....

December 11th, 2003 (12:08 pm)

The good news: My new job is going well dispite the stuff I'll have in the bad news section. I've fought for and recieved a raise. All I really wanted was the pay rate they said they would give me but they gave me a six cent raise on top of it so I'm all good. My co-workers are pretty cool. The manager doesn't do much which is to be expected but my boss and my three other co-workers are pretty cool and are fun to banter with when it gets too boring.

Christmas is almost here and I'm happy. I've got presents for all but four people so my life and bank account will not get too terribly depressed during the holidays.

I've also bought a new monitor and video card recently so now I can enjoy some stutter free game play and not have to smack my monitor every so often when it shorts out. The monitor wasn't a big change, just went from 15 to 17 inches. The video card was though. My previouse card was a tnt2 32 meg card that could bearly handle freespace 2 on higher resolutions. I now have a Geforce 4 128 meg card that should allow me to continue enjoying those explosions and other eyecandy that developers throw in for us sad little gamers. :P

Bad news: I'm moving. I need to start packing my stuff in a couple of days and get it to the new apartment. My apartment phone is going to be shut off because I'm tired of paying thirty bucks just to call acrossed town. I've got the cell phone now so it should hold me with its unlimited night and weekends calling.

I found out my boss wasn't really my boss a few weeks ago. We have a grocery manager that just moved in from a chain of larger stores to just our one podunk store here and is trying to reshift the work load with everyone it seems. I complained to my boss about her adding three more jobs to the lobbies work load and he told me there was nothing he could do about it because she was my boss. Which really doesn't track because I'm in general merchandise with a manager and boss while this new person is in grocery. How does she have any say in what we do and how we do it. Anyway even with that little hiccup all goes well. As long as the customers don't hit me with too much stupidity I'll be alright.

Anyway, that's my splurge for this month. Take care people.

Your alive! :P I think the answer to your q depends on where you spend the most of your time. I'm sorry I haven't been able to send out your gift yet. It should arrive in a few days. I still need to find a proper box for it :P. Anyways, take care and I'll talk to you soon! Happy holidays!

Re: *Huggles.*

I got a new PC game, so maybe the monitor... But really I spend more time on the computer at work. But if I get a new TV I could just connect the computer to it. XD So I dunno. :\ You don't have to send me a gift. :P
