I just ordered my tix for Muse, who are coming to my city in March 2010. I'm so fucking excited and after the whole presale debacle, I'm just so glad that I was able to get a GA spot! OMG THIS CONCERT IS GONNA BE AMAZING, I CAN'T EVEN!! :D
I went to an appointment at the "Genius Bar" at an Apple Store to see if they could figure out what was wrong with my iPod. Ever since I upgraded to fucking iTunes 9, my iPod started acting wonky, not wanting to sync to my iTunes and then Windows wouldn't even recognize it. The iPod kept asking me to restore and stuff, but when ever I tried to, my whole computer became unresponsive. I guess my iPod got corrupted and I THINK IT WAS BECAUSE THE NEW FUCKING ITUNES 9 SOFTWARE. Even on the support boards on Apple, people have been having the same issue. So, I went to see if the people at Apple, who are supposed to be specialists, could tell me what was wrong. BUT NO! Those motherfuckers did the same thing that I did at home to try to get my iPod to work. Then the guy helping me was like, "Oh, there's nothing we can really do. We can replace the one you have for $129 or we can give you a 10% discount on a new iPod if you choose to recycle this one. But either than that, sorry about your iPod." SORRY ABOUT YOUR IPOD!!! Fucking bastard... as much as I love Apple for creating the iPod, I fucking hate the fact their products seem to die on you every few years and for the money I spend on them, I don't know if its worth it. I'll probably buy a new one, my fourth one, and get the stupid AppleCare on it too, even though I probably shouldn't even both since the assholes don't seem to know how to fix any problems anyway.
I'm thankful for my job... even with the stress its given me over the past month.
I'm thankful for my friends.
I'm thankful for my family, my mom and grandmother in particular.
I'm thankful for the band Muse, because seriously, I can't imagine what my life would have been like without their music in it. Its given me such joy.
And I'm thankful for the interwebz keeping me entertained on Thanksgiving, lol.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Like seriously... my friend came into the store that I work in on Sunday and she was talking about a mutual friend of ours and how she's going to be back in town in a couple of days so we should hang out. She then told me that she wanted to go to the movies. I asked her what she wanted to see and she says, "New Moon". I gave her a deadpanned look and said, "Gurlll..." I just didn't know what to say. I love her and she's a very good friend but I don't know what to do. Plus some people from work were going to hang out that night(Wednesday) to celebrate a coworker's 21st birthday and I REALLY want to go. But I just can't desert my friends who I haven't seen in months, plus I don't even have transportation to get to the club my coworkers are gonna be at... Ugh, I guess I'll go to the movies with my friends... see, I'm an amazing friend, lol.
So I went shopping today and I think I found a few good deals. I first went to this place called Buffalo Exchange, which is kinda of a "higher scale thrift store" and I found some some really cute grey heels there for about $24. But you know certain heels that have straps across the ankle? And you can buckle them and then you put it through a little loop to keep the strap in place? Well, that little loop was missing and I didn't realize it until I got home :( I'm still gonna keep the motherfuckers because they are really cute and the strap doesn't really stick up a lot or anything. And I got some dressy pants there for $20. Apparently, they're from The Limited and they were brand new/tags still on, even though I think the line that the pants came from was from '06, I don't really give a fuck, because I probably got them for more than half price.
I also did some expensive shopping at this other place and I'm still feeling guilty/trying to justify my purchases, so I'm not gonna talk about it, LOL. Then I went to Half Price Books, and I was thinking about getting that book "House of Leaves", but I didn't remember the author's name and I didn't want to ask anyone about it. I just decided to have a look at their CD section and I ended up getting Bjork's "Post" for $3 and Zero 7's "When It Falls" for $6.98, so that was DEFINITELY a bargain in my book. I did see some CD by NSYNC and I was thinking of getting it, but I decided that I spent enough for one day, so I didn't get. But I'm seriously thinking about going back and getting in a few days, lol.
I've been seriously procrastinating and I now have to write a paper that's due today in four hours!!! The paper is pretty short and once I get going, I think I can bullshit my way through it, it is just that we have to have at least 3-4 citations from "scholarly sources" and I don't really have any right now. The paper is about advertising on TV and I pretty much know how it works in regards to the relationship between advertisers and TV programming, but I just can't find sources that say the same thing. And fuck JSTOR, for not being available from my house. So... back to work.
So, today I had to catch the bus to work and the ride started off normal as usual, but then when I was about to get off at my stop something weird happened...
The bus driver was one that I recognized before and he's never acknowledged me before, but today he does. I rang the bell for my stop and he ends up passing it and I have to get up from my seat and tell him to stop. He finally does and then looks over to me and asks whether I live or work near this bus stop. I tell him no and that I need to catch the second bus here at this stop. He then asks me my name, telling me I'm pretty and asking me how many boyfriends I have(making assumptions again!), and just generally weirding me out.
I tell him that I don't have a boyfriend and then he says that he would make a good boyfriend for me and that I should give him my number. Mind you, this man was pretty old, probably old enough to be my grandfather, so I was just so surprised and embarrassed that I looked over to the other bus riders (only 2) for help and they were just gawking at the whole scene. He then asked me where I worked because he said he would go over there and buy me stuff(I said I worked in a clothing store). I just told him that I don't feel uncomfortable giving him that info because I don't know him, and he then asks how he would get to know me. I just said I don't know, and he replied that he would let me get off my stop, and that he would be looking around for me tomorrow or something.
I really hope I won't run into him again, but if I do, I might just skip that bus and risk being late for work, because I really don't want to see him again.
So, I did nothing for Halloween but work all day. I'm literally dead on my feet, because I worked a near 10 hour shift and had to help close the store I work at. I have the same schedule today and I feel like crying. Retail is already kicking my ass, and it has only been my 2nd day on the job. I don't how long I'm gonna last.
