It's been a while.
Got Insurance as soon as I sign up.
Getting Delta Green.
Playing City of Heroes.
How's by you?
I guess I should pop in and actually say howdy instead of just posting a song.
I'm back at Domino's. I have been since...A week and a half after the last post. (Before Baba O'Reiley) Working in a call center, while a fine job and a wonderful opportunity, was not my bag, babies. My bag is making and delivering pizzas. I think. There's a local concern that makes and distributes computers and computer-related thingamobobbers. I might be sending in my resume.
I'm fairly happy at Domino's. I've worked out my problems with management, and they retaliated by making me a shift runner/team leader/guy a lot of people look to for answers. Plus, I get tips.
I got some new shoes yesterday, as my old ones were highly rank.
In other news, I just got a starter and 3 boosters for HorrorClix. It looks damn nifty, and I pulled a Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as well as a Deep One and a Brine Witch. I'm ecstatic about the fish folk.
My months-long search for UA has come to fruition.
I'm playing World of Warcraft, with BC. My City of X account just lapsed, and I'll get it back up as soon as I can get a little money in my special MMORPG account.
Love ya'll. Sorry I haven't written sooner.
Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals
I get my back into my livin'
I don't need to fight to prove I'm right
I don't need to be forgiven
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Don't cry, don't raise your eye
It's only teenage wasteland...yeah...
Sally take my hand, we'll travel south cross land
Put out the fire, and don't look past my shoulder
The exodus is here, the happy ones are near
Let's get together, before we get much older
It's only teenage wasteland
They're all wasted!
So, today was my first day taking live calls.
Well, I'm glad to be home. It wasn't horrible, but there's a lot to remember about the call, and I'm pretty sure I forgot a lot of it today.
Several calls were about PS3's and Wii's. People wanting to know when they're gonna get it, if it's gonna come in in time for Thanksgiving (!), etc.
Got a couple of "where's my stuff" calls, but they were generally very easy.
Welp, tomorrow's another day. More calls and cheap Chinese food.
Today is my first day on the floor there at the Walmart.com.
I'm a little nervous, as is to be expected. Also, I got 2-1/2 days less practice than my class, as I was used as one of the go-to guys to help solve problems and show folks how to do shit.
Wish me luck. I'll try to tell you how it was when I get home.
Today was the day my class started taking live calls. I managed to be a helpperson/supervisor/guy you snap your fingers at rather than an on-the-phone associate. This was pretty good for two reasons:
1) The Playstation 3 bundle
2) The Nintendo Wii Bundle
Approximately 800,000 people were sent emails telling them that Walmart.com would have these available today at 12:00PST, and we did. For about 2 minutes (really!).
People were not happy.
However, I got to act like I know what I'm doing and shit. That was nice.
Right this very moment, I'm typing from an Ubuntu live disc thingamobobber.
Whee, cross-platforming can be fun!
It's 3:47 and I just got over a harddrive failure.
Rather, I can use my computer without it beeping in a most upsetting fashion.
My 300 gig harddrive went out last night at about this time, making a noise (mostly beeps and clicks) that woke the house.
I was able to get hold of a 120 gig drive to replace it. Maxtor makes moving the boot-up stuff easy, so I've been able to to take advantage of an old drive I had laying around the place.
Still, I hate that I lost the data. Some of the stuff on it was irreplaceable (since I don't always make hardcopies of my writings. I should, bu I don't.)
How was your day?
I'ma going to bed.
For all intents and purposes, I have dropped out of NaNoWriMo.
This doesn't mean that I won't try to write the story I started, It just means I know that I cannot catch up to the deadline now, and work is a little more exhausting than I expected.
Thanks to all me fans.
