Employed Again!  
Managed to land a seasonal job at Toys R' Us. Not hard, actually. They told me during the one-on-one interview that between my already having toy store experience and my attitude during the group interview, I was pretty much a shoe-in (they had three spots and six applicants). The one-on-one was basically "when can you start?" and "fill out your W-2 and emergency stuff".

The problem is that I am working the 10 PM - 6 AM shift, which is good because I'm a night owl, I won't have to deal with people, and I'll get to listen to my MP3 player while I work, but is bad because what little social life I have usually occurs in the evening and at night, if I work on Tuesday I'll miss House (not a big deal. I can just download it the next day. Still, if anyone watches House and talks to me on AIM the day after it's on if I've had to work, don't spoil me), and I am not entirely sure how to get there and back. I'll probably have to drive myself, although I don't have my license yet (I am now qualified to get it, so I should probably fix that...). Plus it's a job with heavy lifting, so I'll have to wear my arm brace and probably end up crying in pain by the end of the shift.

Still, for $8.50 an hour and a chance (actually, a likelihood) of staying on or moving up, I'd let them beat my arm with a hammer.

Congradulations! Be careful with the arm, please, I'd hate for something relly nasty to happen to it.

*laughs* Yeah.. You don't have to deal with the idiot parents and grand parents all day. Really. I don't actually mind the crying kids.. it's their parents who I can't stand. ^_^ I work at TRU three days a week.

:\ Careful with your arms -- you don't get 'em replaced every 3000 miles!

Psst, if you guys are still planning on doing that Heroes RP I would LOVE to be Charlie.

although I sort of think I'd be an awesome Hiro, too.

Sure, we can hold one or the other for you. As I said, we're holding off our RP plans until after NaNo is over, but the comm is made (I wanted to claim a good name). We're just not starting the game until December.

Cool, all right. December = finals for me but hopefully I can drop in for a five minute reply once a day or whatever. :P

And yes, I wrote this reply five minutes into the ep. Hiro better save her cause she's just cute as pie.

I thought she was adorable when I saw her on the commercial last week. Ana guessed she'd end up being another plant, like Eden. I guessed she'd end up dead. My theory is that if Hiro can't save her, it's going to be one of the big things that turns him into jaded but awesome future!Hiro. Since our RP is obviously going to be AU, we can say that Hiro saved her. ^_^

Wish you were on AIM. Ana and I are exchanging some totally awesome theories about the show right now.

Yeah, but when I get on, even invisible, everyone IMs me and it's horrendously distracting. I want to be on, but I can't.

Time for a new secret name? I'd say we could hop on MSN, but I haven't had it for years and I doubt you have, too. ~_~ (You have my secret name. Seriously, maybe four people have it. It's the one I usualy IM you on, although I rarely if ever have a reason to be stealthy on AIM.)

I'm not sure if this human being was an idiot when pickinga screen name or if this is his genuine given name. But if it is his real name, he wins worst name prize.
