And you can tell I have no clue how to wrap.  All I can say is that I am glad that the kids are getting gift cards, because I'm wiped out with just wrapping four things.

I have a left over gift.  I am not sure who I bought it for.  Odd that.  I also got the kids sleds, and with the snow we got, I am sure they'll wanna use them when they see them.  I did not wrap those.  I wish to remain someone sane.

The snow forced the Eagles game to 4:15.  The Steelers played the Packers today so it was also a Fox game. At 4:15.  Guess who got bumped.  Not that it matters if the Steelers win today or not.  They're shot.

What I hate most about people, is when they stand in the middle of a common walkway to talk to other people they see every fucking day.  I had to get through TWO such herds today when I was at Wal-mart.  Good god people, move!

This is a weird week.  Leaving early from work tomorrow for therapy.  Then Tuesday I am off for a job interview.  Wednesday is a half day.  I'd take the rest of the half day off, but that leaves me with just 1.5 days to carry over.  Two is better.  I hate half days, but this year a half day at Thanksgiving and at Christmas made sense.

The interview.  Meh.  Not really into it.  Almost called to cancel, but I figure, hey they saw something in the resume I sent out.  Hopefully it's not like the time I thought I was applying for a IT job when in fact it was an insurance sales position.  Even after explaining I was in the wrong, that guy still wanted to interview me. I remember this all because I was also listening to On Writing by Stephen King, on the ride up.

I paid $8 for three rolls of paper.  I am not sure if that is good or bad but it had to be done.  I should have bought it in October.

Anyway.  Off to eat and call home and relax.

Did you say "Excuse Me" to the blockers? by muchagecko (2.00 / 0) #1 Sun Dec 20, 2009 at 06:51:56 PM EST
It doesn't work with rude people. Which would be the idiots at Walmart.

Maybe you should stop going to Walmart.

So a purpose is like a box of powdered donut holes?

Yes I did say excuse me.  I have to go to wal-mart out here.  That's all there is.  Well there is a Big Lots but that can be worse.

You just put your head down and yell it as you charge through them.  They always move for me, albeit as a result of simple physics.

"That's a terrible place to stand around." I also remind escalator-standers that it's not an amusement park ride.
Then again, I'm used to chewing out speeders, so YMMV.
