My brother copied Apocalyptica’s Worlds Collide for me since he bought it recently. What he failed to tell me was that it was something like the most awesome CD of all time. There I was, listening along, thinking that it was really cool, despite that obnoxious guy from obnoxious Slipknot, and that I should buy it myself, when all of a sudden TILL FUCKING LINDEMANN starts singing A DAVID BOWIE SONG. Absolutely floored me. And just as I was recovering from that heart attack, three tracks later, on comes ADAM IWANTTOEATHIM GONTIER. I was like, HOW DID MY TWO FAVORITE BANDS IN THE FUCKING WORLD DONATE LEAD SINGERS TO THIS CD AND I NEVER KNEW????????? L claims he told me Adam was on there, but I don’t remember it. He certainly didn’t mention TILL SINGING BOWIE. Anyway, it was a very, very awesome experience.

So in response to this CD, I grabbed Lacuna Coil’s latest album (since their lead singer did a song on Worlds Collide), and I have to say… OMG boring. Not bad, just boring. Like, if there were ever hard rock designed to play in an elevator, this would be it. My first time through the CD, the music faded into the background to the point where I had to restart it and force myself to pay attention. My opinion may change if/when I get to know some of the individual songs better, but for now I don’t think I’m going to be getting any more of their stuff.

So I’ve switched to morning shifts mostly. They’re good shifts, but adjusting one’s sleep schedule is always such a pain. Especially because every day after work I’ve just been too tired to be productive. Yesterday I wasn’t, but I spent the last bit of work yesterday putting away a load of heavy boxes, which aggravated my carpal tunnel to the point where I couldn’t mouse, type, or draw after work. So I watched Shrek the Third (which my mom gave me for my birthday ^__^), hung around doing nothing for a while, and then went to bed. I got up twelve hours later and that was squee. You know, I never noticed before that when Lillian gets all dazed from bashing through the two brick walls wis her head, she’s humming My Favorite Things XD XD Oh, also I caught up on a webcomic.

Today is my day off, and I am working on HR finally. I freaking love HR.

Sometimes when Tokio is bored, she turns on my scanner.

Oh, I forgot to mention that at the zoo gift shop I got a big stuffed spider that is soOoOo cute. I named him Kuroudo, and right now he is sitting on top of my globe devouring the North Pole. Also, lions at the zoo will forever make me think of The Happening.

For some reason my neck keeps itching madly. It’s driving me crazy. Another annoying thing is that the sun is right in my face when I sit at the computer in this room at this time of day. I’ve never actually sat at the computer in this room at this time of day before, so this is my first experience wis this.

“So, Womsal Sti, what have you been up to lately?” “Well, yesterday I spent the day alternating between wearing myself out against Uhura and taking naps… after dark I picked my nose for a while and then went to bed.”

The other day at work, some stupid guy came up and said, “Do you have a bakery here?” To understand how stupid this is, you would have to be in my store and see how the deli and bakery are situated. Anyway, as I was trying to figure out how to tell this guy politely that he was an idiot, the fire alarm suddenly went off. Then the fire suppression system above out fryers and ovens went off, spraying this vinegar-smelling green liquid stuff all over the place. There was no fire; it happened because the construction crews that are remodeling our store had done stuff to the set-the-fire-alarm-off box and not reattached it properly. It took Joy, like, an hour and a half to clean up all the green stuff, and then after that the fryers and the oven refused to work. Ironically, the pizza oven, which we don’t use and which apparently hasn’t been used for, like, four years and which we’re getting rid of wis the remodel, worked fine.

My cat is a fuzzy jelly bean.

I dreamed that my parents had a lakehouse like my great-uncle’s, except it was a gigangtenormous mansion, and that on the top floor was a huge music area wis recording booths and all sorts of instruments. After that there was something about running from gunmen wis Michael Jackson through a mall.

I am Kenshin’s age. And I have no more to say right now.
