    A coworker just sold me Tool's new CD 10,000 days for $10. I'm enjoying it now, even as we speak.

    (This is especially nice for me because this co-worker & I did like each other at all when I first started working here.)

    Oh! My bad! Your post confused me, SJ, so I went back & reread mine.

    I meant to say we did NOT get along when I first started working here. Not that we liked each other.

    Big oops! But, you can see now why it's especially cool when someone who used to go out of his way to aggravate you goes out of his way to do something nice for you instead.

    Good like on the gf, SJ. You know how long I've been looking for the cool, nerdy boyfriend?! Being a SW group, you'd think there'd be more single men my age...

    Good things at work: The phone hasn't rung all day so it's quiet and I'm getting work done!

    Let's see good things at work.
    I slept late and came in at 12:15. 12:30 I had lunch with JB. It was a tough 15 minutes though really.
    1:30 came back to my desk made a few phone calls to square away tonights move.
    2:00 Printed out the Comic Con schedule
    4:00 Showed JB how to use the golf cart. Funny story that is. I'll let her tell it.
    4:30 Read message boards
    5:00 Leave for Burbank
    7:00 Arrive at Pinnicle Bldg. Meet the movers and watch them as they load a truck.
    8:00 Wave good-bye to movers and go home.

    Today's workday:

    I entered the building, I worked inside the building, then I left the building.

    But no one said," JJ has left the building".
    Of course, I didn't sing "Heartbreak Hotel" even once today....
    Go Figure.

    I clearly need to learn how to read and type. 'Like' in my post above should be 'luck.' Geez,I'm slipping. Found a misspelling in my only other post for the day too!

    I just got a new mouse for my work computer. I wore out the old one, it literally began to disintegrate. Nice fresh new mouse.

    I am technically starting like my second day of work at my job today which is good. That means only another six months before I can reapply to Disneyland, and the better take me back this time.

    Technically yesterday, but yeah, SR taught me how to drive a golf cart. Something was wrong with it and it kept jerking like I couldn't drive. People pointed and laughed. It was embarrassing!

    But the good thing is that we needed the golf cart because we were taking my new life-sized Yoda (which had just been delivered to my office) over to my car in the parking garage. W00t!! I also got to show off my new permanent assigned parking space. Yeah that's a little on the pathetic side, but I'm easily pleased!

    This is sort of good in a way if it means more money for me. My coworker the one that does the same job as I do quit and her last day is next Friday. That means more work for me, but it also means more money. But since I don't do a lot of work to begin with doubling it doesn't really sound all that bad.

    I get to drive a golf cart at work, too (sometimes)! Today I drove for a little while. It's fun to floor those things. They don't really go that fast but who cares-- you still get to say you're flooring it.

    I wish I could drive a golf cart at work. All I get to do is go up and down an escalator. Very fun.

    There are no escalators at Sony.

    Yeah. I work at the bookstore at my school and we have 2 floors and have stairs that are outside and an escaltor that last week one side was broken and it was really hard to get upstairs.

    Yesterday at lunch JB called me out to the restaurant manager! It was pretty funny. I had brought my lunch but had used the plastic fork and spoon and some napkins from the restaurant. Well, the manager, who I've worked with during all the Wolfgang Puck take over stuff came up to our table to talk and asked what I was having. I told him that I had brought my lunch today but then JB spoke up and brought attention to the fact that I had taken the free fork and spoon. It was funny. The manager then said that if I brought my lunch again there would be a corkage fee for opening my plastic containers.

    So I guess I'm buying my lunch today.

    It just hit me earlier today that I'm on vacation next week...

    I know it sounds like my reflexes to something like that are slow, but I guess I realize things more as the date draws closer.

    Well obviously you can all see by the number of posts --- I have once again been abandoned & have caught up on this week's projects --- oops, the boss is back.
    Bye.
