I Keep Doing This!!

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

I know, I know. But I put in at least 45 hours in at work the last two weeks, only getting maybe one day off, worked ten days in a row, and every time I came home, I fell asleep!

Spent a little bit of time tweaking my theme yesterday, but mostly what I did was upgrade to WordPress 2.5. I’m a sucker for new releases. For everyone else waiting to upgrade, the new admin sucks and just completely doesn’t feel right AT ALL, but fluency admin fixes it all. Mostly.

I’m most likely going to a funeral on Tuesday, and interestingly enough, it’s not for my own grandmother. A lady I’ve worked with for the past year and a half had her husband pass away on Friday, so a couple of us are going, mostly to support her. Now here’s my kind of random/shallow question: Do people still wear black to funerals? I’ve only been to two funerals in my life… one was too far back and I was too emotional to remember, and the other was kind of awkward and I wasn’t thinking about clothes at all. Would it be bad to wear like… blue?

Oh, stop laughing at me!

Guys, Please Don’t

Where I work, there’s a posse of old men that come in every day (I mean, they’re like clockwork… every day) and sit in the front corner by the windows. Not a big deal in and of itself… pretty harmless. Just a bunch of old friends having breakfast together every day. Not so.

This is an open letter to any and all guys that stumble across this. When you (inadvertently) get old and find yourself with nothing really interesting to occupy your time, do not go into your local eating establishment just to sit there for three hours every day and ogle every girl that comes in the front door. Seriously. I’m sure you’ll be able to find better and more productive things to do besides hitting on random girls that are young enough to be your great-grandchildren. Find a hobby to occupy you in your old age. The girls of tomorrow will thank you.

Been a While

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

Sorry, guys. It’s been almost a month and most of you haven’t heard from me at all in that time. Life picks up, I suspect! Anyhow, since this is my first post of 2008… happy new year (again) everyone!

I hate these rushed updates, but I did want to let you all know about one thing that’s happened these last couple of weeks: I got a promotion at work! I got a raise, and now I’m “management in training”… which means that when I turn 21 next month, I’ll officially be a manager. Until then, I’m being treated as a manager and having to learn everything I can. This past week I’ve been really worn out by the time I get home. It’s like being trained all over again. I’m actually being trained for a higher-level job, just in case something happens down the line, I don’t have to be re-trained again.

Needless to say, I’m quite happy with this. Once I get in the swing of things, it’ll be great.
