So, I just got done watching the fansubbed version of Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, and oh my fucking god, was it simply amazing. I may have to steal a line from Jody and just say that this should be the only Final Fantasy movie in existance. If they did this instead of The Spirits Within, maybe Square Pictures would still be around. I didn’t even play FF7 all the way through and it was still awesome.
Anyway, I have returned to San Jose, and everything feels all foreign and shit. Though, I sat back down in my chair at my desk and I realized that I missed my desk and my 19 inch LCD screen. I may even play one of those fancy PC games that won’t run on a Mac (yeah, I said it). I brought a whole mess of laundry with me, and I’ll prolly be dropping it off tomorrow morning at the wash’n’fold place because I’m too lazy to do it myself. I don’t care if it runs me around $14, they wash and fold it and then they give it back in a nice plastic bag thing. It’s fucking cool.
Today was my last day at Walmart.com (as a NOC monkey). My boss told me that he may ask me to do contract work for him on the weekends (as a tech writer, not a NOC monkey), but it wouldn’t start until after the 15th, which is fine by me. I need a fucking break, and I want to be able to spend more time with Julia. The one thing that was driving me crazy a little bit was that she works weekends and I work weekdays, so unless I pulled a shorttimer privilege and go home early or take a day off, we’re limited to after I get home and before she goes to sleep. Also, when we wake up and I drop her about an hour before my shift starts. This is no longer the case… until I find a new job.
Which brings me to my next point. I think sometimes it’s a little jinxy to talk about job prospects, but I have three possibilities right now. Two in the city, one in Mountain View. I really want one of the two in the city, because both are within the limits of my expertise in technology, but the one in Mountain View requires some blood and tears to get done (from the description). Plus, there’s the added hassle of moving back down to the South Bay after having already transferred some of my things up to Julia’s place. I’m sort of in a wait-and-see mode right now, because I need to find out if I even get the jobs in the first place. Wish me luck on those fronts, because I’d really like to go back to work before my unemployment starts to eat away my money to nothing.
Serenity opened today, and no I did not go see it tonight. I wanted to, but I saw Advent Children instead. I’ll be going this weekend sometime for sure, because I want to contribute to the opening weekend numbers. 🙂
There’s no place I can be, since I’ve found Serenity… but you can’t take the sky from me.
