My hair looked really good today and I had nowhere to go. Dammit.

Eh....I don't know. I'm a little drunk right now, though I suspect I'll be quite a bit worse in an hour. I might have a problem. But I feel like talking...and I think I'm interesting enough. So I'll give it a good shot and see what I can come up with.

I believe I've solved my employment woes...I was just looking for something higher paying and with more available hours that at the ol' cigar store, even though I pretty much run the show there. I believe I have. Though I still have a second interview tomorrow, it's really just a formality. Starting in about a week or so, I'll be working in the plumbing department at Rona. Yes, I know NOTHING about plumbing. But thanks to my natural charm and people skills, I'll be working 40 hours a week for the next four months making a very decent $14-15 an hour. Good money, good hours and yet it scares the hell out of me and I don't want to do it. Everything scares me. I think I'll be nearing the point soon where I'm afraid to leave the house.

I hit my snooze today and slept in for an hour longer than I was supposed to. I just cannot seem to wake up, ever. I'm always frigging tired and I hate it. Maybe the 40 hours a week will force me to wake up. I hope, I pray.

Took my car in today because I needed to get an 'emission test'. What horseshit. All cars pollute the environment, so what it mine does so a little more than others? I had a bad feeling about it and though it passed last year, it failed this time around. Several hundred dollars to fix it. Lovely. What a scam. I think I hate the environment even more now than I did before. Instead of throwing my cigarette pack in the trash, I threw it on the ground today, just for spite. I also noticed that the crack on my rear windshield (which hadn't moved in a year) has suddenly spread 6" in like a week. And to get that part? Four hundred dollars. This my friends, is the price of driving a European car with fucking crazy-ass parts.

The Blue Jays did win today, which is nice. Three in a row now, all against the Yankees and Red Sox. I'd love to go to a game this weekend, but have no one to go with. C'est la vie.

Since I've been off (more or less) the last couple of weeks, I've been watching a lot of old re-runs during the day while I have nothing else to do. Seinfeld, Friends, Cheers, Chico and the Man, the old Star Trek. I just check the listings and the Star Trek episode on tomorrow is 'The City on the Edge of Forever'! Yes, I guess this makes me a bit of a nerd, but everyone knows that's the best one of all-time. And no, I don't watch all those loser Star Treks (Next Generation is still okay) or other stupid sci-fi garbage. I'm not that lame. Still it is pretty cool that the best episode is the one airing on my birthday. Makes me feel special, even if it is just a random coincidence.

I have to go now. My codeine water is almost ready. I had other stuff I wanted to talk about but I forgot.
