10:03PM - real update
oh yeah, forgot.
finished moving out of my old place.
finished moving my stuff into my new place.
...will be unpacking for the next [enter length of time here]...
9:59PM - Ooops! I did it again!
Yeah, i shouldn't be bothering with this silly things. Giving me a bit of a flashback, actually....
I am impressed at how accurate this was, though. I'm almost exactly midway between Sexy & Cute (slight bias towards Cute), HEAVILY biased towards Dark over Light, and also heavily in favor of Artsy over Stylish.
...now if only i could grab the attention of a woman like the one in the picture...
Your result for The Your Type of Girl Test...
The Suicide Girl
Cute, Dark, and Artsy, it's the Suicide Girl. A cousin of the Goth Girl, she's a little more on the cute side than the sexy side. Her interesting hair and impish smile make a certain kind of person wonder how her unique outfits would look lying crumpled beside the bed. By the way, if you don't get this category name, you don't know your Palahniuk... or your internet porn.
If you liked my test, Please rate it highly! Thanks!

subject says it all.

9:11PM - post scriptum
55+ hour work weeks fucking suck, ESPECIALLY when paid a salary!
(side note...i LOVE the fact the company states we get "paid holidays". My paycheck comes showing 8 paid holiday hours...at a rate of $0 per hour! Fucking salary.)
Having 2+ weeks of vacation time but only being allowed to use 1 week at a time SUX0Rs!!!
Having your District Manager make you feel like shit because you have to leave and miss a managers meeting to attend your LAST GRANDPARENTS FUNERAL is utter bullshit.
Desperately needing more staff but being on a hiring freeze because other stores are closing creating a abundance of trained employees to be spread around to needy store and having your DM NOT give you any of those employees is in-fucking-sane.
Have I mentioned the company requires the salary managers to work a MINIMUM of 45 hours per week, recently forced manager to work 6 days a week, but has an absolute freeze on any employees getting overtime.
Oh, and at my previous store, I had an employee who'd worked for the company over 4 years as a full-time employee. The DM flat REFUSED to give him any kind of raise. A new-hire full time employee at that time would have made MORE than a 4-year vet! HOW FUCKED UP IS THAT??!?!?!?!?!?! I still say he should have sued the shit out of the company for discrimination. (he was Hispanic)
Ok, gotta go to bed now. Something about waking up at 5 AM doesn't sit well with me. I could probably sit here for another few hours with these little gripes...
...if no one has a winning lottery ticket I could have, is anyone hiring?? I've got years of tech experience, years of customer service experience, and years of management experience. Oh, and I LOVE to travel!
8:23PM - where'd the time go?
Damn, how did 8 weeks slip by?
Well, i promised an update, so here one is....here is one....whatever.
My diploma is useless. Should have majored in something totally different. I was too you to make a wise choice, just like many many MANY others. Who knows what they want as a career when they're 18???
Anyway, I'm managing a major chain camera store. Have been working for the company about 2 years. After being screwed and kept in a "training" store for 1.5 years (about 2-3 times longer than any other manager anyone could remember), I've finally been promoted to one of the largest stores in the area. (mind you, I did better in the "training store" than anyone previously for many years, so I wasn't kept there because of lack of ability.)
...just in time for a major f*cking recession...
So, i kinda like the job. I mean, cameras and photography are a bit of a hobby. They have been since high school and earlier. However, the pushy sales bit (goals goals goals...quotas...why can't we just sell the customer what they need & want and not add bullsh!t on top to pad the sale??? OK, I know the extra padding is how the company makes money and stays open, but it's still damn annoying.) and the corporate environment is really wearing thin. Yet another company I've worked for that has no loyalty towards is own employees. In fact, major big-wigs (high level VPs) have said straight up that "trained monkeys can do this job". Suuuuure....trained monkeys (or someone right of the street with no experience or knowledge of the technology) can do proper manual color correction on photos, fully explain a camera's features and functions, and troubleshoot & explain why a customer's pictures aren't coming out well.
sorry for the mini-rant.
Isn't it the belief that experienced and knowledgeable employees one of the major reasons that Circuit City closed? About 2 years before failing, the higher-ups thought it would be a good idea to fire all the experienced & knowledgeable employees because it was cheaper to hire minimum wage workers who didn't know a damn thing.
So, where was I? Oh yeah. Managing one of the largest stores in the market. Ready to find a job I actually enjoy. Sad thing is, the most fulfilling (and best paying, but that has nothing to do with the fulfilling part) job I had was shortly after college. It all failed when the tech bubble burst, though. And even that one wasn't a "dream job".
Anyone out there got a winning lottery ticket?

6:36PM - Yup, no surprise here...
Your result for The Sexuality Spectrum Test...
Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.
This is not to say that you don't have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you--we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren't much of an outcast.
I'd say there's a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.
If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback!
Also, you might want to check out some of my other tests if you're interested in any of the following:

5:58PM - I am a Spiteful Loner
Just between you and me, I'm much more emotional than the test let on. I just suppress the emotions for a more rational/analytical view. I found that does a better job of keeping me out of trouble. It also help me keep that brutal side at bay! :-)

10:46PM - party update
Forgot to mention...
For those of you who have severe allergies, the party is in a home w/ a dog. Also, some of the furniture came from a home with a cat.
Don't want anyone showing up & not being able to breath! :-P
10:53AM - Party!
Doh! Never did get started on this like I had planned. *sigh*
However, I will take the time to announce (quite a bit later than proper) that I'm having my Housewarming Party this FRIDAY (12/15). This means I've gotta get the house presentable in the next few days....*shudder*
Anyway, Party's on Friday 12/15 and starting around 7ish. Working on getting a keg...
Since i don't really wanna post my address on LJ for all to see and have everyone in the area show up, send me a comment & i'll give you the info. :-)
OH...and toga's are optional. ;-)

10:48PM - Another political test
I'm moderately a Communist Anarchist. Go figure. :-/ (aka a left leaning Libertarian)
I have similar political and social views to Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and The Dalai Lama

10:07PM - WHOOOPS!!! New Diggs
After reading my last post (about surgery), i realized i never followed up about moving OUT of my last place. I coulda SWORN I had, but it's not there.
So...yeah. I've been in my own apartment since late October. Will be moving into a new (larger) place in October again when the lease ends. Kinda had to jump-ship before and ended up in a less-than-ideal place (pretty nice, but not perfect).
yeah, that's if for now. Finger's beginning to hurt after this typing, so I'm gunna take another Vicoden & go to bed. :-)
9:45PM - Surgery...really? wow
Since i haven't really gotten word out, i'll do it now.
I had surgery on 7/14.
Of all things, I had a fucking TUMOR on my left middle finger! I'm just now getting back the ability to use the finger again for some things (like typing).
Everything should be fine. It wasn't cancer or anything else that could be a risk to my health. It didn't even really need to be cut out....it was just annoying. It hurt occasionally & slightly limited the use of the finger.
When I get a chance (now that i can type again) i'll post the SURGERY PICTURES for all to see. Yes, i've got pictures. :-D I brought my camera & asked the doctor/surgeon to have someone photograph my surgery. It's surprising, but the pics came out pretty well!
Anyway, i'll be putting them up on my website for the curious folks to check out. They're not bloody (they actually drained all the blood out of my arm!!!!), but they ARE icky. :-p My finger was sliced open and the skin spread apart, tendons pulled, etc. Juicy. :-D
The 2 chucks of tumor pulled were about the size of peanut M&Ms. Imagine that stuffed in your finger!
Anyway, I'll post the link to the surgery pics (and current, post-surgery pics) when I get them uploaded somewhere.
I know this is a bit of an odd post, especially since I haven't posted in months. But, hopefully it'll help get me back in the habit of using LJ a bit more.

8:48AM - new update on Psycho Bitch
Hysteria has reached a whole new level now that It has read this journal.
Keeping to the high road, It has demanded that some of my stuff in the garage is moved within 24 hours because it's a "fire hazard".
It's at a door to the water heater. I don't know if that's a fire hazard or not, but some of it was placed there by the roommates.
Not a problem though, i'll just move it after work.
The REALLY "amusing" part is the complete mental meltdown of It today. I was trying to get ready for work, and It starts yelling outside the bathroom door. Since i was in the shower, i couldn't really hear, so It barged right on it! Spent 20-30 minutes screaming at me about different things, then finished by throwing my towels (and i don't know what else) at me in the shower, trashing It's own shower curtains & rod, and getting water all over the place (since i was still actively taking a shower).
This could probably be filed w/ the PD as assault...but i'm leaving so soon it's probably not worth it.
I just hope i don't regret NOT filing a report...
counting down the days to freedom....

1:16PM - Fina BITCH straw
Final straw time.
I went out on Thurs. night and got trashed. The Bitch had royally pissed me off that day, and i figured abusing my own body would be better than damaging It or It's property.
Came home LATE Friday after spending the day with a friend calming down...(slept in the bar parking lot...too trashed for anything else...i assume, i don't remember). When i arrived home, i found a big LEAKING bag of trash in the middle of my bed!
The Bitch, not liking that i wasn't home to take the trash out, threw the bag into the middle of my bed (in the process, walking right by the garage it needed to be taken to).
Obviously, i wasn't happy.
Since (1) i don't know what side of the bed It sleeps on and i didn't want to get it on my other roommates side, and (2) it might be considered assault if i threw the full bag on top of her while It slept in the bed, i just took the trash into the garage and put it in her car. I figured if i had to sleep with the smell that night, It'd have to drive with the smell the next day.
I then went to bed...after locking my door.
The next morning (this morning), around 8 AM (i was sound asleep), The Bitch came POUNDING on my door, yelling and screaming. It woke up the whole house, and possibly the neighbors, too. I guess It didn't appreciate the trash...but at least It didn't have to sleep in it.
So, since NONE of this was actually her fault (see, it wasn't her fault that the trash ended up in my bed because i was the one who wasn't home to take it out...doesn't matter than It put it there) i have now been denied any use of her stuff in the home. Plates, glasses, utensils, kitchen trash can, the mattress that i'd been using (since it had previously been in the garage), etc.
Oh, and in the process of taking all my stuff out of the kitchen where someone other than me might use it, It broke my glass butter caddy and sliced open her hand. *giggle*
i can't feel ANY pity about it because (1) It is being a cunt, and (2) i was trying to gather my stuff myself because i knew It'd break something, even though It told me It wouldn't...seconds before breaking something and cutting Itself. :-D
