   Good God
Good god, it's been over a year since my last post. It's been so long I really can't remember how to edit my site (any reminders would help). I would like to change my quiz now but can't even remember how i use to do it. Well, there is to much left to say so i'll just say a really really brief summary. I now work at Best Buy, college is still a pain im my ass (but now i go to Ivy Tech to save a bit of cash), me and my ex have broken up, I play WOW (world of warcraft) like it's my job, I still watch anime like no other, and I have a new appartment all to my self. Well, how have you guys been doing? Hopefully i'll be able to post again soon after this long long week. Well, next week is going to be "Black Friday" and i work 10.5 hrs that day so it won't be much better. Later guys.

   Hey Guys
ey guys!!! Man, it seems like it has been forever since I was last on. I am at my college’s (Ball St.) campus checking up on a few things, so I thought I’d take this time to quickly post something. Well, work has been going all right. I am looking for a job that’s closer to my place now though, but other then that it is pretty good. Summer has been pretty slow though mostly work, playing video games, and watching anime. Do to work constraints I almost never get to hang out with my friends (my usual work hrs are 3 p.m. to 12 a.m.). It is a good job it’s just a little far away now and doesn’t leave much time for socializing. Speaking of my job, some changes have been made and I want your opinions on it. We recently moved some of our “more adult” manga out of manga and all the way over to the Erotica section way at the other end of the store. Now, I know that kids shouldn’t be reading it, but to move it to the opposite end of the store to very remote section is a little drastic in my eyes. You would be surprised at how well some most of it sells (for some reason it consists of most of or yaoi collection), but ever since the move I have not seen a single customer one. I figure that the customers just come in and look for it, and assume we don’t have it any more. In my opinion we should put it back in the manga section. It always comes wrapped in plastic (to protect it from kids). If it really needs to be separate then they should at least keep it in the same section, but put it under a different sub-category. We do have a sub-cat. divider that says “Adult Manga” but we don’t use it. I wonder why? I am not a reader of yaoi (though it doesn’t bother me), but I think that all manga should be in the manga section. That is just my belief. Anyway, that is the force behind my new poll. Sorry for the rant. Well, tomorrow is a day off, so I think I am going to spend most of the day fishing with my friend (this is the first time we have had the same day off all summer. Well, on a good note my mom just got out of surgery yesterday and everything went fine (well, she did get a lot sicker then expected but she is fine now). Both of my sisters just got jobs. One works at a swimming pool were she gets paid $6.25 an hrs just to sit there and tan. Her only responsibility is to make sure people aren’t acting stupid on the slide. My other sister is working at a Christian music/book/coffee house called Gaithers. The funny part is that she is atheist. Well I need to get going soon. I am going to go buy some manga and see if the new issue of Newtype is out. Man, I miss getting on here. YOU GUYS ROCK!!! I’ll try to quickly comment on some of your sites, but if I don’t make it please forgive me. Take care everyone. Later.

A Long Post, Clifford the Big Red Dog, and a Goodbye (for now)
*For those of you who want to skip the story and cut strait to the matter at hand, go to the next paragraph* Man guys, I just spent 4 hrs commenting and a few other things on My O. Wow, I really didn’t think it would take that long, but I think I got everybody. I added some of my newer friends’ buttons to “Good Friends” link and made a new poll for you guys. The last poll disappointed me. I was hoping to see a winner. The last time I check Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy 10 were tied, with Metal Gear one vote behind. So, I thought I would leave it up for a few more days and see who wins. I checked back and they all had more votes, but they were still in the exact same situation. Well, on to my day at work. Yesterday was something. It was our store’s grand opening even though we have been open for two weeks. We had all kinds of things going on. Well, at first there weren’t that many people there, so I was running a register by myself. This lady came over to check out a newspaper. I scanned the bar code and it said the item doesn’t exist (our computers have been screwing up lately). So, I try it again and it does the same thing. I type in the ISBN number into the system to find the product, but it doesn’t come up. I apologize to the lady and ask her if she wouldn’t mind waiting just a second while I call the manager down to fix it. She replies “Don’t you dare call down your damn manager!” I was shocked, frozen, and then slowly began to back away from the intercom. (Cut a long story short) After I somehow managed to check out her item without ringing it up (while being cussed out) I handed her the newspaper, she threw down the wrong amount of change and look off like the wind. I told me manager (after she arrived about 30 sec late) and now we are supposed to be on the look out for that lady, if she ever comes back. Well, after the grand opening got going I had a short break on which one of my co-workers (Josh) talked to me the whole time about the Xenosaga series. After that, I went back to the register. Then all of a sudden everyone started talking about Clifford the big red dog (Josh was supposed the wear a Clifford suite for the kids). All of a sudden one of my managers ran up to me and tells me to “Hurry up! Hurry up!” Not knowing what’s going on I took off with her. We get back into the back room and she says “Dustin, hurry up and put the Clifford suit on!” I’m like, “What!” She’s responds, “Hurry! Hurry! Now! Now!” After a long process of putting on the suit while my coworkers and managers laughed at me, I became Clifford the Big Red Dog (who looked like he had put on a few pounds). Well, to make a long story short (sorry, I’m trying to keep this post as short as I can) I ran around the store getting my picture taken with kids. Then, my manager says, “Hey Clifford, do you want to go around the entire mall?” I shake my head, NO! (Clifford can’t talk). But, off we go. Well, after a lot of kids pics, high 5’s from old people, girls waving, and some people making comments about how Clifford looked like he had put on some weight, it was over. However, right when we were on are way back, I saw one of my co-workers (Steven) and ran up to him like I was going to get my picture taken with him. He punched me in the face (well Clifford in the face)! Who would hit Clifford (well, actually I have wanted to kick a mascot or two’s butt before). Finally, I return to the laughter of all my co-workers (including Josh, the bastard), and took off the suit. I probably lost about 5 pounds wearing that thing because it was so damn hot. They never let me hear the end of it. I guess I was just so damn funny looking. Sorry for making ya read that long post.

Well, I would like to take this time to say goodbye (for now) to all of you on My O. As you know I was forced to leave my place prematurely, so now for a while I will have to move pack with my parents. I don’t mind that a lot, but there is one catch. They can’t get the internet (too far out in the country), so I might not be able to get on the O for a while. I may be able to get on certain occasion, but it will be rather rarely. I thank you all who I have gotten to meat over the past few months. It has been a lot of fun getting to know all of you (especially those of you I talked to on Yahoo and AIM). I was hoping I could say goodbye to everyone on Yahoo and AIM in person, but no body was on tonight. Well, I might be moving out tomorrow (depending on some things), but if I am not then I will definitely be on Yahoo and AIM as much as I can. This will not be forever. It could last as little as one month or could be more then 6 (depending on money). I’ll update my site when ever I can, but until then………Thank so much and goodbye (for now).

   Yes, I am still alive.
Well, just letting you guys know that I am still alive on this end. Well, what have I been missing, and how have you guys been? I have been working my ass off, beacuse I just found out that I'll be moving out in about 9 days. Damn, talk about short notice. My roomates mother doesn't want to pay any more rent, so I guess we have to be ready to go in 9 days (we weren't supposed to move out until late July). Well, on the bright side of things I finally got to go on the video game buying spree I had always wanted (finally, since I hadn't played a video game for about 6 months). I bought several games that I had been meing to play, but for some reason or another I hadn't been able to. The sree included Suikoden 5, Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires, Xenosaga 1, and Kingdom Hearts 1&2 (I know I am a little late on this series, but at least I'm trying to make up for it) to name a few. I would tell you guys about my weekend, but all I can remember (seriously) is buying $30 worth of flowers for my mother for Mother's day. I'll be around to check out your sites later today. Later
