Bored. I iz it.

It's currently 4:11pm. That's exactly two minutes since the last time I checked. And the last time I checked? Was approximately the 500th time check of the day.

Today is going sloooooowly.

I don't know why it is. Perhaps because it's summertime and thus the slowest time at work. Perhaps it's because it's all nice and sunny outside, and I want to be anywhere other than in front of my work computer. Perhaps it's because I'm heading down to the parent's house tonight and I have about 15 things to accomplish before I leave. I dunno. I just know that I can only play so many games of Bejeweled, and I passed that threshold around 2:00pm.

I'm certain I'll be dreaming in blue diamonds and purple triangles tonight.

Given the excitement of my day, I'm sure you can imagine the excitement of my life recently. Basically there's nothing new going on, and thus you get no new blogs.

Oh wait, that's not entirely true. I do leave for vacation in a little over 108 hours, but really, who's counting? I will spare you the drama of how I purchased my ticket and say only that I paid more than I wanted to, but less per person than I saw anywhere else at any time. So at least I can sleep at night. Unfortunately, with vacation so close, my demeanor at work has changed. If a customer calls with a problem, I'm still just as nice and helpful as possible, but internally I'm thinking, "Don't care. Leave for vacation soon. Suck it." Yeah. Luckily customers seem to not be having many problems lately. I think someone up there wants me to actually HAVE a job when I get back.

Oh, and I went to see Public Enemies on Wednesday of this week. I figured that since I've been to Dillinger's grave, I had to go see this movie about his life. I would recommend it as a good movie....just be prepared for more violence and gore than I was originally expecting.* In the last two weeks, I've been asked approximately 5 times where Dillinger's grave is located. One time I actually tried to explain it, and three times I just said I didn't know.** It's just easier that way because trying to tell someone how to find a gravestone in a cemetery is much like trying to tell them how to find a tree in the forest. Next time I'm going to offer to take the person there if they want to give me and my pit bull a ride.


I don't think I've mentioned here that I got a new phone last month. This is the first time in the history of Emily that I've gotten a phone that wasn't the freebie included in renewing your cell phone contract. I've always sworn that I wouldn't pay for a phone (why should I? They give them away for free) and stuck to that when I got this one.*** But I think I may have made a mistake. Honestly, I'm never ever going back to the freebie flip phones. In fact, I may never go back to a phone that doesn't have Windows Mobile. Holy crap am I in love with my phone. It has everything. Addresses, reminders about where I need to be at any given time, a great camera....I'm in love, I tell you. In love.


Classes start one month from today. One. Month. Ah summer, I hardly knew ye. I'm not depressed yet, but I feel a sense of urgency that I need to get stuff done. Like my life is ending in a month or something. Seeing as how I'm taking Organic Chem and Physics II, it might just be.

Okay. I'm sorry for putting you through the boredom of this blog. But at least it helped me kill 19 minutes!! Have a great weekend everyone.

*Telling me, "It's a gangster movie, Emily, what did you expect?" will probably cause you bodily harm. Just ask the boy and he'll go into more detail for you.

**The fifth time I pretended like I only spoke Spanish.

***Rebates are my friend.

For future reference, pretty much any movie these days involving any type of criminal, real or imaginary, is going to have gore, and just about all movies have violence.

Also, I told you so about the phone.

Rebates are generally tricks, especially these days as more companies seem to make it difficult to collect, so make sure you get yours. (I've not personally had problems, but Consumerist has many posts on that subject.)

If I have things to post about, I'm sure you can find things to post about.
