it's been so fucking long since i've posted on this journal. my livejournal gets action every day if not a couple times a day.. this, nothing. as in action i'm referring to myself posting. let's see. i'm sick, i have to work tomorrow, helen is in a bad mood, the machine is fucked, i'm obsessed with the west wing now, i don't feel good.. as in i shouldn't have taken those diet pills this morning as they're now kicking my ass in a not so good way.
i'm very bored by the internet lately. the boards i used to post on have slowely gotten more and more uninteresting. my livejournal friends are slacking in their updates. the people whom i used to talk to online are no longer online. i want to join a new board and converse with people, but then i think.. what's the use? it's pointless really. i get excited about it for a night or so and then it's boring and i never go back. or by the time i get enough time to go back i'm bored with it already.
i was thinking of going to the caucus monday night. but i don't see it happening. honestly. oh well.. it seemed fun in theory. i was going to go exercise tonight, but never got around to that either. the west wing was on at 6, then celebrity poker at 7, law and order at 9 and west wing on again at 10. so that was my night. and soon i'll be in bed and waking up for work. oh joy. god i just hope tomorrow is a good day at work.
there's these certain songs that i can't hear anymore without thinking of tww. little drummer boy sung by a choir... in excelsis deo. i'd have to say one of my top favorite episodes, if not the most fav. tori amos - i don't like mondays, ronny jordan - the jackal.. duh. dire straits - brothers in arms, yo yo ma - cello suite 1, 1 prelude.
they're all fabulous songs. i wish i could listen to music at work. speaking of.. i went to the mall the other day. yes, the mall. for the first time since my last day or work at ritz.. about four years ago. (is that right?)
anyway, john and jerry were working. and some girl. i felt violated that she was working. like that she shouldn't be there.. i should be. i really miss working there. and maybe some day if i ever get the courage to go up and talk to anyone there.. better yet, scott; then i could tell them how much i want to come back. i know they'd hire me.. just don't know how long it'll be till they have an opening. with now only one store in the des moines metro area.. not alot of openings. i'd seriously consider a paycut to work there again. possibly. the politics and shit that goes on at sam's is ridiculous. it's mostly the way that management treats the members over the employees. the sad and pathetic excuses they use when firing people. and then wondering why they don't have enough employees to cover shifts. duh!
they have this fucked up sick pay thing that they do. if you miss one day of work due to being sick you just miss a day's pay. if you miss two days, then you can use one sick day and really only miss one day's pay when you actually miss two day's work. it makes little sense to me. it benefits us more. because people will miss the first day.. and instead of coming into work the second day, they'll take an extra day off cause that way they'll get paid for that extra day (or the first day depending on how you look at it). either way they're going to lose only one day's pay. if they stay home one day or two.. so why not stay two? i haven't been to work since saturday. i worked thursday and had friday off, worked saturday, had sunday off, called in sick monday, and was off today, tuesday. anyway, i'm going in tomorrow.
my wrist is aching very badly right now. so i shall bid you all adieu. and hope that there's someone still out there reading this and i didn't write it all for nothing. :)
