Friday, not a good day

Wow, did today ever suck!

I woke up and looked around my room with the feeling that I had missed something. Wait a minute, why is it so bright out?!? It was 9am – the time I’m supposed to be at work. I called the cab on my cell phone right away and threw on my clothes. Before I had the time to get my boots on the cab was outside honking. Then the bastard asks me “which laneway do you want?” and laughs at me when I told him to take a left onto the street where my work is.

I don’t use any laneway, my workplace is right at the front of a commercial condominium complex. As well, I just woke up… don’t laugh at me you jackass cabbie!

Anyway. After that I get to work, start working on translating some English CD-ROM content to French and my boss approaches me. I had forgotten to add an Excel spreadsheet to a CD-ROM I didn’t even develop. I screwed up bigtime and our company has to reprint 75 CDs at our cost. Needless to say, I was on edge all day. I’m pretty sure I have a job Monday morning, but nothing in life is guaranteed. Especially when the cards are stacked against you (and you’re the one who stacked them).

Couple this all with the fact that I’m just getting over something that has made me very sick and worn out for the past week and that pretty much wraps up a bad Friday.

Well, I think I’ll finish my work for the day and relax after work. ;_;

Anime Fan’s Strife

“It’s all your fault I can’t get any work done…,” she said to me on MSN, “…i keep watching elfen lied.”

It’s a common affliction among anime fans to watch episode after episode of fansubbed animation. The storylines are often riviting and end in cliffhangers or otherwise leave you wanting more.

I think my work is done here… ^_^

WoW!

World of Warcraft takes up a lot of my time these days. I have paid up a 6 month subscription on the service, which cost me $98 CDN with taxes (I think, I have yet to get the bill.)

It’s a great game, game of the year in 2004 I believe. It won a Gamespot Editor’s Choice award as well.

So other than creating this website, working and enjoying time with my friends & girlfriend (and trying to play guitar) – that’s what I do. 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day

Well people, happy St. Valentine‘s day.

My love is sleeping in her bed as the day wastes away… I suppose we’ll spend some time together later.

Myself, I like to wake up and enjoy the day. What is happy about today? If you don’t have a certain someone to share it with, could you share it with friends and/or family who have nothing to do as well? *shrug*

Well… This morning I basically did some work from home that I won’t get paid for. Server management stuff… and now I think I’ll be going out for coffee.

Cheers.

Jammin’ first birthday

Today I attended my friend Jake’s first born’s first birthday. The event was set in a historic building in town and lots of friends from out of town were there. It was great.

His son seemed to really enjoy it.

Afterward, we spent some time catching up at the local coffee shop – reminding me of how important it is to keep in touch with friends.

Yeah, like that’ll happen. 😛

When I left the coffee shop I went over to my friend Steph’s place and jammed a bit. We tried to hammer out One by Metallica. Yeah, we had fun trying.

Other than that, nothing productive really.
