I'll Still Be Me

I got a job!! Well, I already have a job, but I got another one! Yay! I am now in charge of infants to three year olds at Slide Baptist Church. I get paid $10 an hour (whether there are kids there or not!) and work about 8-10 hours a week. Sunday mornings and evenings, and Wednesday nights. I am so excited! This extra money will pay for my rent, so that is a plus.
Now combined with my other job, I will now be working 40 hours a week and taking 17 hours of school. Whoops. I dropped A&P so now it is only 13. I've never taken this few hours! It's kind of nice, actually.

Katie's birthday was on October 20 we had a big party for her Friday night. It was held at Linsdey, Katie, and Emily's apartment, and what a cute place they have. Katie was BJ from M.A.S.H, Lindsey was a nurse, and I was a nerd. Seriously! I was going to wear a cape and be a super nerd, but the cape I had was just way too big. It looked more like an invisibility cloak that Harry, Hermione, and Ron used. It is a major character in the last book. Great book by the way. You should all read it. I called it from the beginning though and knew Harry would not die. Oh well.

It was a great party! Katie rented 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later and we put in the first one while we ate hot dogs and hamburgers, and then we turned it off and played games. In one room there was karaoke! In the living room we played Scene It and then Apples to Apples. For Scene It we had Team A and Team 1. Team A (my team) won! Yay! I guess all that useless movie knowledge went to good use. Melissa and I helped our team win. After Scene It Melissa, me, and Emily's sister played Six Degrees to Kevin Bacon. Wow. You can link him to anybody! Amazing. We even linked him to Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant.

We started playing Apples to Apples and got to meet Jim from Dublin. Jimmy from Denver City was there as well. Many others, but two dudes with the same name. Kinda cool. Katie and I were not too sure if Jim was really from Dublin but his accent was great. Nicole kept calling him John. Awesome. I wanted to just call him James, but I was too distracted by his accent. He left because I am pretty sure we freaked him out.

Becky came in after she got off of work and had a story to tell. We work together, and she is just great. Apparently there was some altercation with a customer. We have a pretty standard policy when it comes to looking at animals. You have to be 18 or older and you have to give us a picture ID. No problem. Once we have your ID you can take the puppy (except the small ones) into the puppy play room. This dude apparently wanted to take the puppy out of the store and show his family. Yeah right, dude. You ain't leaving our store without buying the thing. He got angry that he was not allowed to leave the store with the animal. Luckily Becky had not given him the dog yet. He became beligerent and refused to leave. Security! 10 minutes later they show up and by this time he apparently grabbed Nancy's (the manager) arm and shouted profanities at her. Wow. The assitant manager and Becky looked on and were pretty much terrified. That all happened on a Friday night. At 5:10 p.m. She got to the party around 9:30 and was still pretty freaked. I would have been scared too. Idiot guy.

Anyway, back to the party.

After the game Melissa just starts singing Willie Nelson's The Gambler. Wha? What a random song choice. I start singing along with her and I asked her if she watches The Office. "No," she said. I told her of the episode where they sang that song on the bus. She laughed.

Later on in the night we all drew names for door prizes and I drew Michael Meyers. Halloween!! Coincidentally, Melissa drew Dwight. She had no clue who that was, but we told her he was from The Office. She laughed. I won a spider goblet and Jimmy won a nerf gun. Haha! I think he was Frodo or something like that. Maybe he was a zombie. Blah! I'm going to get you and then he shot me in the eye. True story. Thank goodness I wear glasses or that could have been one big ouchie. Come on! It was a nerf gun, or something like that. I know nothing about guns.

Saturday I worked. Ugh. Katie called me and I went over to their apartment and we watched 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later. Wow. I really enjoyed the first one, but the second one is a little scarier. Oh. My. Gosh. Pretty creepy. Plus, zombies are awesome, and these were pretty cool. Great movies.

I got home and wanted a lighter movie so I put in one of my favorites, The Princess Bride (Inconceivable!), and fell asleep to it. Awesome movie. I love the R.O.U.S's. Totally great. Buttercup. Tehehe.

After church this morning (did I mention I got another job?) mom and the sister called and wanted to go shopping. I needed new clothes and I knew mom had money so I went along. I got a few sweaters and it was great. We went to Johnny Carino's and I took home leftovers. "I think I'm in love with Italian food." Sigh. I love that show.

I had to see a movie for the paper and I just got back from seeing Dan in Real Life. Wow. Great, great movie. I truly loved it. Steve Carell was amazing. Loved every minute of it. Please, go see it. I give it 4 out of 5 Chap Scratches. Whoohoo.

I have to write a story (due in the morning) and the topic is this: Moving Day! Your boss just got a promotion to another company and you are moving to a bigger cubicle(?). As you are cleaning out your bosses desk, you find some embarrassing items. What do you do with them? Intaresting. Say it like Dracula. The other is this: you go to the movies and on the marquee there are three movie titles that are up there but they are smushed together so it looks like one sentence. Ex: Seven Cars Gone in Sixty Seconds. Not mine, but it is great. So, I need to get on those. I have the article to write and then the little thing with the boss thing. Too many things. I need to stop saying things.

Hold on, if my boss got a promotion why am I cleaning out his desk? Am I getting his office? I don't get the prompt. Since I have not written it yet, can I argue that it is too ambiguous to do anything with? No? Well, ok then.

Hey, I like your picture of him on your profile. I might steal it and post it on my page. You know, just like the other one.

Not looking forward to the 10 (mom says 9) hour drive to Crosby for Thanksgiving. So far it looks like we are leaving Tuesday afternoon. Hannah does not get out of class until 2:15 so as soon as she gets out we will head out. Hopefully by 3. Cousin Macy might come as well. Steve, DeeDee, Matthew, and Micah will probably be leaving earlier. Yay for car rides. We will be leaving cold, wintery Lubbock for hot, humid Houston. Haha, an alliteration.

My 88 year old great grandmother might need back surgery so pray for her. Her back has been hurting for some time now, and she is in all sorts of pain. She is 88 years old, so if she is complaining, she must be in excruciating pain. I fell once and landed on my butt and had this shooting pain up my back for like a week. I acted like a little baby and it was nothing. "Oh Jordan, you'll be fine." Didn't help that the brother kept hitting my back to make it worse. "Jacob, stop torturing your sister" is all the parents would say. I punched him in his nose. I even made him bleed once. Another time we were fighting and...

This blog is boring. I should probably stop writing and begin writing....hmm.

Or not. The yearbooks finally came in and I am in it once. Yay me. I did not show up for individual pictures but they managed to sneak a picture of me with the Duster staff. Boo! I don't want people to know me. Plus, I am socially retartded and if people know me then they come up to me and start talking to me. That's fine. I don't mind that. It's just that I don't know what to say and I make a fool of myself. Something along the lines of "hey, I collect snowglobes!" Or, "Did you know that there are no such things as miniature Shih Tzu's?" They then look at me and wave to their imaginary friend conveniently located behind the bush and walk away. Since we had that one conversation we would of course be friends so if I ever saw that person again I could say "hey, let's share germs" and procede to hug that person. I love hugs. Not higs. I don't know what those are.

Is it so wrong to be socially retarded? Can I say the word retarded? Or is it retarted? Who cares. It's my blog and I'll spell it like I want to.

What's this I hear about an Office convention in Scranton?? If I had known about this awesome experience I would have possibly gone. Not like I have to money or whatnot, but it would have been cool. Plus, I hear the entire cast (except for the four big stars) are there. What a fantastic idea. People keep saying the "First annual Office convention." First of all, how can it be annual if it is the first time? Makes no sense. You can say annual when it the second time. Makes more sense. Duh!

Hannah got to intern Friday night for KLBK, the CBS affiliate here in Lubbock. I'm glad we live in a town the size of Lubbock (200,000) because it is just big enough, yet not too big. She was so excited and when she told me she practically had to pull her car over on the side of the road to tell me the good news. I'm so proud of my little sister. She's gonna be famous one day. Probably not me though, you know, the whole me being socially retarded thing. I could be one of those eccentric reclusive writers who only comes out for book signings and creeps out the fans. Awesome. I would wear a homemade shawl and never comb my hair. Since my hair is curly and frizzy it would look hideous. Sweet!

So, I guess it's been a good week for the Williams sisters. I did not fall once and Hannah is well on her way of becoming a news broadcaster. What will happen next??

Wow. That was lame. Oh well. Alright, guess I better go and begin writing. Take care, world. Or my limited viewership
