Clean and suave to down and dirty

Yesterday pretty much rocked. I went to an interview at 10:00 for NW IT Services. I met with the big boss, who was acompanied by my contact on the inside. It was an interview you’d expect from the kind of business it is. I think he tried to see if he could scare me because it’s ‘So much work’ and ‘there will be times when you don’t know the answer and the customer is going to be pissed at 2 o’clock am.’ Pretty much I’ll be on-call 24/7 in case certain companys have a server melt down. I’m like a super hero, lol!

Whiney office guy: “Tech guy! The sever crashed and our company opens in five hours!”
Me: “Have no fear, my friend. I’m on my way.”
HAXOR! POW!! CRACK! ZAP! DUCKT TAPE!!!
Whiney office guy: “You saved the day again Tech Guy! You’re the greatest!”
Me: “All in a day’s work… hey why are you here at 2am anyway? Get a life! noob!”

Or something… anyway, it’ll be a sweet deal. A real job that will make real money and give me a lot of really good experiance. The only way to go is up!

After that short little interview I went to help my brother-in-law put a clutch in his Geo Metro. Well… as far as we got was getting the transmission OUT of his car.

Note to self: front wheel drives are a pain in the @$ to work on. I’m still dirty from all that grease and crap.

Get clean… get dirty

Yesterday pretty much rocked. I went to an interview at 10:00 for NW IT Services. I met with the big boss Mark, who was acompanied by my contact on the inside, Phil. It was an interview you’d expect from the kind of business it is.

My computer is out of commission… in a good way… I’m supposidly getting my new memory tomorrow. I gave back the temporary memory because I need the money to register my car. That leaves me with my second computer sitting in it’s place in all of it’s crappy slowness. I couldn’t get it to work on the internet this morning either, hope I can fix that tonight… or I’ll end up bored. Or playing the piano.

Anyway… I saw a Lotus Elise today… wicked sick looking car. It’s so small too. I don’t think I could fit in it. But yeah… it was pretty.

Anyway… uhh… you rock. That’s all I have to say about that…

Battle at Pretzels

It’s almost christmas time… tonight there was a little party held at Jess/Heathers P.s house. Steve and Crystle were also there. It was rather fun. I’ve kinda isolated myself lately so it was good to hang out with people again. Apparently they were anxiously waiting for me before opening gifts, even tho I was too poor to even consider getting some for others. I may make up for that, but we’ll see. Anyway, it started off plesent. We started a video. I played with the dog for a while. Then war broke out… as with most wars there wasn’t really any purpose besides being the better. Tickeling fingers flung out from all directions, people were pinned and a little brused. It was a good bought. I came away unscaved. I got to know Heather and Crystle better too. Heather is ticklish under the thys… Crystol is tickelish most places. She’s one of those that flys just from anothers touch.

Anyway, can I complain about my car any more? No? Oh, ok. Then i wont mention that my brakes don’t stop the wheels. They slow them down… but it takes a good while to stop… *grumble* *grumble*

Yesterday… all my troubles seem so far away…now it looks as tho they’re here to stay…

Well, been a couple of days. I’m on book three of the book seriese I’m reading… I also am at level 10 in Morrowind. Something to be proud of, to be sure. I should get a raise for it, I think 😉

Hmm… sister came over yesterday. She and mom made stockings. I made pudding… we had spageti. It was a nice, relaxing day off.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. I almost died today. My car has this thing with the transmission where 4th gear doens’t work… rather than shifting to 4th it sifts to 1st. Anyway, I got out to get the mail today… without thinking I put the car into drive. All is fine until I get to the freeway. Bad times. Since 3rd comes before 4th, I’m going around 45 before it downshifts to 1st. So my transmission instantly over heats and locks up, which means my tires completely STOPED TURNING! I was in the second lane from the right, still not completely on the freeway of this particular on ramp, and since there was a staggering light before I got on there were no cars around me. Anyway, skidding to a stop from 45mph is no fun. Without rolling back tires you pretty much either just keep the car going the way it’s going… or spin. This didn’t occur to me as I instinktively turned right to get the heck off the road… AKA, spin we go! Amazingly I managed a 180 degree skid neatly parked on the right side of the road. I was facing oncomming traffic, but at least I was out of the way. I sat there for a couple minutes thinking about what to do… a few things popped in my head, none of them any good from the stand point of being broke and having expired tags. I turned the car back on put it in 3rd -the gear I’m supposed to use my car in- and hammered it. With a loud THUNK the transmission freed itself. I calmly turned the car around when traffic was gone… and here I am. Safe at work. 🙂
