Somehow in the midst of pushing myself too hard to make a Halloween layout I somehow ended up making one for Christmas. At first I liked the direction it was going, but now I'm sort of undecided about it. Now that most of it is set up I think the background is a little too distracting. I'll have to work on it more tomorrow and hopefully I'll get an idea for a Halloween layout.
On to real life news; I've gone back to working at House of Humor. After I told Jack what had gone on at Old Navy and the aquarium shop he said, "Well why the hell didn't you come back sooner?" I had no answer for that.
I let Jack know about having friends coming down and he agreed for the first week of November. But as far as the last three days of October, in his words, "I can't have you screwing me over for those days." Unfortunately this means Amber & Brad will have to fend for themselves while I'm at work.
If I had a 'Get out of Hell Free' pass I'd use it for those three days, especially on Halloween. I hate all the fucking last minute, indecisive, whiney shoppers and their kids...oh God the kids. >.< "Can I see that one? Ok now that one...ok that one...can I see the other one again?" Then their parents come along and it ends up they were just there to pick up one last item for this little brats costume which did not include the fifty billion masks I busted my ass to get for this kid. (You can substitute kid with woman and masks with wigs.)
Then you have the assholes who think that just because you work there you're some kind of God damned costume guru and you have the perfect costume selection just for them. You know what? I have enough trouble planning my own fucking costumes year in and year out at the last fucking minute. Do us 'gurus' a favor and be independant for once in your life. We know all of you little people who know nothing about Halloween or costumes look up to us every year as your Halloween Gods, but we have our own problems which are more important than yours; like what wig we should get or what costume looks fabulously homosexual on us.
Well, I'm going to bed and I should probably change my message since Jack is going to call sometime this week and I don't think it'd be wise for him to hear Howard Stern's voice saying, "What're you calling me for? You're not that much of a loser are you? -BEEP-"
Goodnight. (Unless you're Japanese then it would be 'oyasuminasai')
While I was going to look for brushes at deviantART I got that magical little pop-up that gives you a free, one-week account. The only good thing I see about having a paid account there is I can search. Too bad I didn't get the free week until after I lost interest in supporting the site.

I saw my first Tag Friends visitor! ^_^ On the downside I accidently deleted/denied a friend request by a seriously awesome Japanese person. >.<

So the first trackback I get is from 完全見放題 on the previous entry I made. The name left was 吉郎 (Good Fortune). o.O
Summary (概要):I have no clue what exactly a trackback is but, that's what I got...lame.

I'm learning to speak Japanese from a series of audio 'tapes' in an attempt to extricate myself from the rodent wheel that represents my life. It's about time I learn from the rest of the world and take up a new language. I don't expect to be fluent from an eight course tape, but it's a beginning and I'd eventually like to learn to read Japanese.
My social life is as scarce as it ever was. To say it's in a state of decline would be a false claim. I need to remember to call Nicki and arrange to have lunch on Friday. I (regretfully) flaked out on her week before last.
Other than trying to learn Japanese, my lacking interaction with other human beings and the passing of my boyfriend and I's 7 year mark, there's not much else to report on.
