Smiley Frown

Not much to report today. Gallagher is out of the house as of the end of this week, thankfully. I don't mind helping out a friend, and I understand what a bitch her situation is, but one more person in the house is just too much. The place looks like shit, because no one cleans up but me. And I'm tired of peeps in my room when I'm not there. Christ, I'm gonna have to start locking things up or something. Common Courtesies 101.

One cool thing: I got 2 pet rats today. Maybe I'll get pix later. A girl at work had to find a home for them, so I said I'd take them, and now they are running around on my desk here at work. A black and white one I've named "Ben" (the horror movie nut in me), and an albino I've named "Eightball" (the ex-cocaine-addict in me). Hee, hee, I have pets again!

So I heard recently that there were 30 new computers, 1 Gigahertz processors, that were being set up and given to the top performers in the call center. Now, normally, when these little incentives come up, I'm not really concerned that I'm not in the running for them because I'm not taking calls, and therefore have no stats to be on top of or compete with. This is because most of the incentives are either boring, crappy, or pointless. But this, this was desirable. Some of these machines are old, and slow, and beat, and a GHz box would be sweet. Oh well, i think to myself, I'm used to my machine. But then my Supe walks up to my desk today (the rats running around on it, exploring) and informs me that i am on the list to get one, it seems! Hoo-Ah! That made the afternoon better...

I had mentioned a while back that Alice was supposed to pay me the money she owed on her next 2 paydays. Seeing as how she has basically burned all bridges, I'd have hoped that she would honor this one. Well, one of those paydays has already passed, and the other is rapidly approaching, and when I try to contact her about it, she either logs offline, ignores the question, or blows it off. Well, this is the final straw. She blows this off, and I wash my hands of her. I tried.

On a slightly related note, Alice's boss, who I had a deal with (sample code for $100) not only has not paid me, but also doesn't respond when I message him. I'm about to get very upset with some people...
