So it’s been a few days, but I’ve been busy! I’ve met new people, gone to parties, and have perhaps picked up a new hobby, Dagorhir! <= Click for more info!
Basically it’s LARPing, something that I know I’ve giggled at in the past, but going and seeing it in person, and meeting the awesome people involved in it really piqued my interest. The dressing up, and beating each other with foam weapons are just bonuses. ^_^ It’s something I may be trying out, though I’m a little nervous about starting out, I have no gear, and I don’t want to look silly out on the field waving my foam bat around stupidly… but everyone has to start somewhere, right?
I am debating putting purple back into my hair, so far my job hunt has been unsuccessful, and I can always color it black if I get an interview, right?! Oh who am I kidding, there will be purple in my hair before the week is out, I already bought the hair color. Now I’m just waiting till I talk someone into doing it for me, the back is always so hard to reach…
I work a retail job in my local mall. I won’t try to bullshit you here guys, I fold t-shirts for a living, and I have been at my current job since 2004. While this typically may be seen as a shitty job, I love the people I work with, and we have all been at the store for ages, I remember quite a few of them from when I started shopping there in high school.
To quote Randal Graves: “Why because I enjoyed what I did? I got to watch movies fuck with assholes and hang out with my best friend all day, can you think of a better way to make a living? Yeah maybe it wasn’t what everyone does but it was pretty fucking good.”
Of course you’ll need to replace watch movies with folding shirts, but you get the general idea.
Unfortunately, as much as I may adore my co-workers, this job can’t continue to support me- silly things like bills, and health care grow increasingly important as I get older, and so the job hunt begins.
Hopefully, now that I’ve told you this, dear reader, you can keep me motivated, because my job is like the most comfortable pair of chuck taylors I own, and a new one seems about as foreign, (and comfortable), as nine inch stilettos.

Well, this is it guys, my first post.
I’m not sure where to begin, I feel like my first post should be more auspicious than this… But trying to break the ice is hard, I can’t even buy you a drink, make wild hand gestures, or show you what I can shove through my ear gauges, ( a personal favorite of my mother). Actually, perhaps I’ll show you that later…
Anyway, before I get completely sidetracked by gross things I can do, I suppose I should give you the reasons for starting this little venture. I love reading Blogs and Web-comics, being quite in awe of people who can keep me coming day after day, so this is my New Years resolution- I’m going to write about my life and put it out there for the internet to see. I really hope a few people out there will find me amusing!
Well guys, that’s it for now, there will be much more coming- I mean we’ve just met, soon I’ll be telling you embarrassing stories about work, and my love life.
