Well That's Awesome!I just got an email from Game Stop saying this: www.gamestop.com/nextgenoffer. basically they will let you trade in the Xbox 360 games you order for the Xbox One version when they come out later for $10 extra. That's pretty cool. I understand it's solely a business strategy because they saw a decrease in pre-order sales due to people waiting on the next-gen consoles to come out, but as one of those people, I think this is awesome. I might get GTA V for the 360 now, and I already preordered Saints Row IV, so I'll be able to trade that up too.
It's a Small WorldI love going to different places on this site and seeing people I have personally interacted with, or who have interacted with me via "liking" something I have posted or commenting on something I've posted, interact with other users in various parts of the site. I don't know why, but I like to see people being active and passionate in this lovely community. I'm not "friends" with everyone I've ever interacted with here, but I see friendly/familiar faces every where I go on the site. I don't know what the point of this journal is, I guess something along the lines of "I love you RT community, no matter how big or small of a part you play on this site."
WELP!Apparently it is popular in cheap hair cuttery to give people "Ray haircuts." The lady asked me if it was ok to use clippers on the back and sides, and scissors on top, and I replied "yeah, I usually like it shorter on the sides than on the top," and without asking how short I wanted it she said "ok" and took off about 4 inches of hair from the back (in other words, ALL OF IT), too late now, I just sat back and "enjoyed" the rest of my haircut.
It didn't turn out as horribly as I was expecting, but it is much shorter than I had planned.
I Dun GoofedSo I bought GTA IV yesterday, but I fucked up and accidentally ended up purchasing the Lost and Damned DLC first when I was trying to buy the game, then I bought the game, and then I said "fuck it. Might as well get the Gay Tony DLC as well." So I ended up spending $25 on a game that should have only cost me $10 (BTW if you didn't know GTA IV is only $10 right now). Oh well...
ConfessionSometimes I feel like a sociopath. I tend to connect with characters like Sylar from Heroes, or Dexter Morgan from... well, Dexter. It may stem from the idea that being able to separate myself from my emotions is a sort of superpower... Seriously, am I the only dude who didn't cry after playing Telltale's The Walking Dead?
RWBY Ep. 2So it seems they're definitely going for some stylistic choices that will appeal to those already familiar with anime, and the storytelling that will appeal to Rooster Teeth fans. Great combo IMO, it may seem odd, but it is done well. This episode was a bit slow, but I get the feeling that when put together on the DVD it will fit very well together much like RvB does (that means I'm definitely buying the DVD/Blueray?). Not every episode will be action packed (they seemed to stress this at the RWBY panel as well). Looking forward to more.
God Damn ItHey, it's story time (short story, don't worry)!
So yesterday I was sound asleep when suddenly at 6:05 AM my phone starts to ring. I check who's calling and see that it's my store. I yawn and say to myself, they'll leave a message, I'm not supposed to work today, so it can't be too important. My phone rings a second time 2 minutes later, this time they leave a voicemail, then it rings again at 6:17. Every time I ignore it. When I finally wake up for real around 10:30 AM I check my messages to find that my manager had called saying I was supposed to be there at 6 and he's wondering where I am. I quickly double check the schedule I had gotten the week before, and to my relief it says I'm working Monday and Wednesday. So I call back and tell them this, and all I get in response is "oh..." So I'm off the hook. No problems, it was an honest mistake and just a miscommunication.
Fast forward to today. I wake up at 3:30 AM in order to be at work at 5 AM. I have my coffee, shower, get dressed, and walk out the door by 4:30. I start to think on my drive that it is possible that because I was supposed to work Monday and Tuesday this week due to yesterdays mix up, perhaps I wasn't supposed to be there today. I get to work and quickly check the schedule and... I was right. WELP! I'm awake now, it's 5:30 and once I'm up I have a hard time going back to sleep. Shit on my fucking dick! I guess I'll just watch some Always Sunny until a less ungodly hour.
