Two Good Things

Good Thing #1:
Yesterday I booked my hotel and flight for New York City this December. Yay! Ryan and I will be heading there on December 7th and coming back on the 11th. I'm defintely looking forward to this trip. It'll be nice to get away for a little bit AND it'll be Christmassy and I love Christmas.

I've been planning on going to New York this December for the past ten and a half years. I went to NYC on a school trip back in May of '95 and said at that time that I'd be back in December of '05. I will be there for the 25th anniversary of John Lennon's death so hopefully there will be some memorial stuff to do. Even if I don't check out any organized memorial events, I can still definitely do some John Lennon related things for that day.

Good Thing #2:
Today I had an interview for a position within my company where I would be able to read medical information and actually be able to use my brain. I think it went okay, but I'll have to wait and see if anything comes out of it. I'm not a huge fan of interviews and I'm never completely sure how they went, but this definitely did not go badly. They still have all of the external candidates to look at, though, so I won't hear for a bit.

Fairly Random Today

This week seemed so long. Each day seemed to drag on longer than the last. It made me very tired and somewhat cranky. Today I'm at home. This is much better than sitting in my cubicle at work. I decided yesterday morning right when I got to work that I was going to take today off. Got to my floor, went to my cubicle to turn on my computer, and turned around to go to the vacation schedule. I booked myself off for today.

Tomorrow I head to my parents' house for Thanksgiving weekend. It will be quite the full house and Ryan's coming with me. Alison, Greg, and their kids will be there, Andrea and her kids will be there, and of course my parents and Allie (the dog) will be there.

It's not only Thanksgiving this weekend, but also one of my nephew's birthdays and my dad's birthday. Mitchell's 4th birthday is tomorrow (Saturday) and Dad's birthday is on Thursday. My mom's birthday is coming up later this month so we get to celebrate 4 occasions this weekend!

And now I will get back to my exciting morning. My coffee is ready and Degrassi is waiting. I'm entitled to some relaxation before I tackle some housework this afternoon.

Have a great long weekend, everyone! And who knows... there's always an offchance I'll update from the folks' place. But that may be on my Xanga.

Not From Work... but I needed to share my joy

I will soon not be filled with as many woes from my lack of Quality Canadian Television night.

For the past year or so, I have been working part time in addition to my full time job (I'm sure everyone figured this out from my previous posts). My part time shifts are generally Monday night, Thursday night, every other Sunday. This was originally my scheduling around both the overtime that was available at my full time job and the fact that my Quality Canadian Television night was Tuesday night.

Last winter, both Corner Gas and Degrassi: The Next Generation were moved to Monday night. I was very disappointed by this and have since missed out on most of last season and the beginnings of this season of the two shows.

Now this brings me to my original point: fewer woes. I have just returned from the mall where I have purchased some DVDs. One set has been purchased a week late and the other just on time as it was released today. I am now the proud owner of Corner Gas Season 2 and Degrassi Junior High Season 3! YAY!

Ryan was actually watching my Degrassi Season 1 DVDs the other day. I was so proud. :) I knew my love of Degrassi would start to rub off on him at some point.

And just for Marty I thought I would include some pictures. I didn't take them or anything and my camera batteries are currently dead, but they are pictures, nonetheless.

What I Learned at Work Today

Cutting an apple with a cheap, flimsy, plastic, serrated
knife is both difficult and messy.

The Day Will Come

Some day
I will have one job
and one job only
I will be able to:
survive on this one job
pay my rent
pay my car payments
pay my insurance
pay back my loans
pay for food
with one job
and one job only
some day
