Continuing my ongoing theme of jobs
So, I got the job I wanted last Tuesday, and got the call on Thursday about when I could work, then was asked on Saturday to go for induction stuffs on Monday (tomorrow). Great.
So, this meant it was time to tell my current boss I'm leaving - which I resolved to do. And at the end of my shift I said to her I was leaving, and we talked about that and it was fine.
As I drove home I started to feel really sad about leaving it, and ended up moping all night about it. So, this morning, I text her and said if she got rid of my Thursday shift (which I hate), I'll try and work it so that I can do my friday + saturday shifts there, and do the new job as well.
Madness, I tell you. I mean, I guess there'll be more money as a result, which will be nice coming up to Christmas, and I'm saving for a trip to Rome next year too.
Just received my email telling me that my UCAS form has been successfully completed and received by the appropriate powers that be. Now we play the waiting game and see which establishment of university wants me to come study history there next year.
Thank. God. That's. Over. :o
Weekend is obviously off to a great start when the first thing that happens when you get home, is to read a letter that states:
"Dear Customer *************
We are writing to inform you that due to highly suspicious activity on your card we have blocked certain transactions and temporarily disabled your online account, please telephone us to confirm these activities are not fraudulent and your account can be restored."
Then I checked my e-mails, and the company who I ordered some DVDs off on Amazon have replied saying the courier lost my parcel, and I have now been re-funded, and the item I wanted is no longer being sold.
Well, it didn't really look like it was off to a flying start when I tried to photocopy my passport for their records, and the printer ate up about 15 pages before it finally worked. In my delight at this I hopped into the car and sped off towards the Spar - (I found out which one it was at for sure!) - and 30 seconds up the road. Huge ass farm vehicle driving at 5 mph on both lanes. Woot.
So, after 20 minutes driving to a place that is only a ~5minute drive, I pulled up into the car park and got all the things I needed. National Insurance Number, passport photocopies, page with reference number on it, passpo.... Where's my passport?!
I called home to see if I'd left it in the printer, and my sister confirmed I had. Several profanities later I say "Right, be by the door in 2 minutes" *Long pause* -> "What door?"
Stupid bloody woman. Good God. The door!
So I sped back home at something stupid, fairly confident I had 15 minutes to get back there, no big deal, got the passport and off I went.
When BLAM Learner driver.
(After 7 months of driving I'm totally qualified to flame those no-good, road-whoring, disrespectful, slow learning, slow moving wretches )
So I once again drove at 20mph and the drive took 5 times as long as it should have. I got there with about 60 seconds to spare. Made it, with everything this time!
Questions were pretty straight forward, "What is good customer service?" "Are you flexible? (<_<)" "What can you bring to the team?". I thought that part went quite well, had a good wee chat and the people seemed nice, and I was quite at ease.
Should hear back in the next ten days - maybe it's finally time to cross another thing off the list to your right!
The Royal Wardrobe would be this, and nothing but this style of clothing. I'd also declare "Huge Ass Fridays" (In reference only to the grand thickness of the clothes!)
Mandatory wigs would be worn all day er'ry day.
I've spent all day today nursing the mightiest of mighty hangovers, watching the 4 hour mini-series "Charles II, the Power and the Passion". Had a huge difficulty in changing from disc 1 to disc 2, as the xbox was on the other side of the room. I stood up to change it once, fell back down and slept for 2 hours until someone came in and I asked them to change it for me.
Now I'm moving on to Elizabeth I! Dame Helen Mirren, meeeeeeeeeeeow!
Ye' are far too good for Argos. Don't let the man keep you down! Get a new job and make Argos regret the day it was conceived as a brand name!
(And if you find out tomorrow you actually got the job, remind them the opinions and views displayed in this blog no way reflect the opinions of Gonzyy or those affiliated closely to the Gonz' ^_^)
This is undoubtedly the most excited I've ever gotten over a video game - and this video is the reason why:
Now can you dig that - Suckaaaaaaaaaaaa?
Also - I bought myself a card holding binder, a starter pack and ten more packets of WWE trading cards today -I am now an official collector of WWE Slam Attax ^_^
I've been offered a job interview on Monday, at a petrol station that would pay me around ~1.30 an hour more, which all adds up on a monthly basis.
Trying not to get my hopes up too high about it, but this is the first interview I've been offered since I got my current job back in March, (nothing like a dead job market to cheer you up).
Hopefully, very hopefully I'll get it, it would be a little easier on petrol to get to as well, and there's good chance of getting time and a half by offering to do the scummy shifts nobody wants to do (late Friday and Saturday nights basically).
Oh well, can but hope, now I must go to my current job :s Anything to get away from fast food.
I also think I've been inadvertently charged with destroying the Catholic faith in 17th Century England.
We've been watching a 4hour production by the BBC of King Charles II of England, and he's by far my favorite monarch ever. I actually cried when he died in the DVD, I get very emotionally invested in silly things. I cried last year when Elizabeth I died in the DVD we watched :P
But, for some reason, I keep having this recurring dream, in which I'm standing in the House of Commons with Charles II, repeatedly screaming at him:
"What is this ardent Popery?!"
I also insist that all Catholics are heretics and should be aptly hounded for their faith, and demand that James II be blocked from ever obtaining the Throne of England, this is the will of the mob and must be done to secure the line of the honorable James I.
Is good for the soul.
I had a pretty tough week at school and work, basically just trying to get through the week and get back into the routine, and it put me in a very bad mood for a couple days. So I decided to sort it by spending all the money I've earned and saved.
So I set off for town with a list of school supplies to buy, and with other shops to visit in mind.
I spent about £20 on my own and my sister's supplies - buying myself an epic WWE document wallet and file in the process. Randy Orton represent yo'.
I then popped into Sainsbury's and Tesco's and picked up a 3 disc best of RAW 2009 WWE DVD for £6, bloody bargain!
By this point I was feeling pretty good about my limited spending and went to GAME to take a quick browse, maybe purchase a new strategy game...
£40 later I have Shogun: Total War 2, Civilisation IV and a game called "The Settlers"! - honestly, it's good for the body and mind this retail therapy malarky.
Then I decided to finish the day off by buying a large big mac meal, and eating it whilst driving to the nearest JJB and Tesco express to pick up job applications.
Now I'm at home, with two complete job applications to drop off, a full belly, new games - and I even bought a money box to stop myself doing it all again! What a good day!
Was a great success, I'd say. We had 8 people turn-out for the event, and I don't think there was anyone who couldn't get all ten penguins.
They were in great locations and it was a good event, until Xaria got PK'd in the Dark Knight's Fortress getting all 3 wilderness penguins at once (what luck!)
Then we all gathered at the end for a quick message - where Vearl disappeared in thin air as it was snapped!
And for anyone who's interested - it took us about 30 minutes to get them all. Not bad at all.
The event will run again next Monday, same time - then will probably move to Wednesday, so start saving your penguins and go the cool way - with Sal's!
