As the one or two of you who actually bother to regularly come to this site may have noticed, the updates have been few and far between.
This has been mainly for two reasons. The first was my ill-fated attempt at working again, which took up quite a bit of my time and was excrutiatingly annoying.
The second has been my recent addiction to an innocent little computer game that goes by the name of Anarchy Online. I haven’t had this much fun playing a game in ages. It’s fun and I keep finding new things every time I play (which lately, has been every day) and I know there is soooo much more that I don’t know or haven’t seen.
I’d tell you more about it but that’d waste time that I could spend playing, which is what I’m off to do now.
Well, work only lasted a week before someone tried to fuck me over and I told them where to go. So now I’m back to being blissfully unemployed for the time being. I don’t really mind quitting all that much though as this is the first job I’ve had that I’ve loathed from the very first day I started there.
The Training was abysmally non-existant. There were the one or two staff members that were cut-throat and underhanded bastards when it came to sales stealing. The management were indifferent at best.
I could go on, but I don’t really care to talk about it much more.
Tomorrow is another day. I may go watch a matinee of Signs or Triple X or something to cheer me up.
The job offer may have fallen through. I was told they would call me back either later Saturday or on Sunday, but it’s now Tuesday and I haven’t heard anything. *sigh*
I gave them a call earlier today to check to see if there was anything going on and I’d missed it but they’ve yet to return my call so I’m guessing I didn’t get the job. *sigh*
Damn, I really wanted this one too.
And in other morose news, it seems like no one is bothering coming to the site anymore. There’s been an extreme drop off in hits (and subsequent poll votes) ever since I changed the layout around. I guess people either don’t like the new look, or just can’t be bothered anymore.
I guess this is bothering me on some level because I’m always grumpy when I come to check the site and see if anyone has voted or even if my hit counter has moved. Call me pathetic but I guess I like to know that people enjoy coming here. I need that validation that I’m doing a good job and that my hobby is appreciated.
Bleargh. And to top things all off, the damn weather is getting me depressed as well. It’d be nice to see something other than a 10°C (50°F for you philistines) day filled with: ________ (insert and combination of the following: Solid iron grey clouds, Fog, Rain, Wind)
I’d just like to have a couple more 20+°C days to enjoy.
Blah… Anyways, that’s enough moping for now. Later.

Or at least that’s how I hope it’ll go. I had my first job interview in a donkey’s age today and it went really well. The interviewer was really friendly and we hit it off right away. They want me back tomorrow for an aptitude test and possibly a second interview so things are looking good.
It is retail sales again but I’m not going to complain too loudly. It’ll pay my bills on time and give me some extra money that I can put towards destroying… uh… I mean bolstering… (yeah, yeah that’s the ticket) the world economy. And hey, it’ll be the computer department, or as I like to call it… THE TOY STORE!!! So I’ll be set for gadgets galore.
