    There's really not much to tell - my manager is in love with me for the work I did while she was away because apparently it was perfect. She didn't have to do anything or fix anything when she got back and all the paperwork that she hates was perfectly in order :D

    This is a big deal because usually when a manager goes on holiday for even two weeks let alone four and leaves their 2IC in charge, they come back and the shop is a mess and half the paperwork has been left undone and the pays are a mess... because 2ICs don't have the same amount of training that managers do so even with the preparation they're given in the weeks before the manager goes away they don't really know what they're doing. So yeah she was very impressed :D apparently one of the best things I did was call another store manager and ask for help if I didn't know how to do something rather than just leaving it for Shelley to fix when she got back... I'm ranting about how awesome I am and that feels weird but yeah I'm feeling pretty good about myself :D

    Other than that, nothing new really - I put in a request for leave and am taking a week off work from October 12 when the new Pokemon games come out OH AND I HAVE TICKETS FOR KATHY GRIFFIN WHEN SHE COMES TO AUSTRALIA ON OCTOBER 18 SO PSYCHED.

    If you don't know who Kathy Griffin is I will educate you in my next message

    OK I really think that's all that's new with me haha.

    What is chicken dip? Is that a thing in your exotic country?

    I'm sorry I haven't forgotten you (though it's quite baffling really; the number of VMs I waste on reminding you that I haven't forgotten you) - it's just that this manager thing has me chasing my tail constantly - i have no time for anything. I'm amazed PC hasn't fired me to be honest lol.

    It's only lasting until September 16 and then everything's back to normal - that's not to say that you won't hear from me at all until then, just that you should expect some delays . I'll tell you all about it once it's over!

    I will get to your PM soon - I did read it already, and omfg I loved your exam piece. That was awesome - no wonder you get perfect marks, you little overachiever, you!

    I don't know how it's coincidental that you were binging on Cassetteboy, but I'm sure I'll find out once I watch it. I can't believe it was four days ago you sent this VM already. My god life runs you ragged if you let it. Settle of mediocrity, my friend, it's a much less stressful life. And then you get to be one of those people who is like "I'm mediocre by choice, I sneer pretentiously at those doing better than me because I have much more authenticity than they will ever hope to accomplish"

    I'm sorry! I'm so sorry I have failed you again! I think the problem is that I see talking to you as so important that I feel the need to sit down when I have a good chunk of time and reply to you, rather than just dashing out a five-second job like I do to most other people

    Also I will never post you a Johnny Cash song, I'll post you things that are far more fabulous. Perhaps kittens playing with string, or dogs howling at ambulance sirens. Something in the animal theme.

    Or perhaps I'll just give you some Bad Lip Reading. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjGk_jU6t5A

    And some *****y Resting Face. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3v98CPXNiSk

    This should keep you going for the time being

    Soon the recognition of my importance will come to pass at work! In one short week I will be the manager and I am ****ting bricks more than ever :D

    Dare accepted, my friend. Dare accepted

    So something interesting happened to me today. Actually no it didn't, I just thought that if I typed those words out then some amusing anecdote may present itself to me in a Saint-Paul-on-the-road-to-Damascus-type blinding flash, but alas no. My life is boring.

    Oh! Have I told you that I'm going to be the store manager of my liquor store for a month starting August 15? I'm ****ting bricks about it, but at the same time I'm oddly excited. I'm happy about the prospect of feeling somewhat important. Like if there is any trouble with the store while I'm not there, it'll be me that they call to sort it out. And I'll be like, telling people what to do and stuff! The down side is the pressure and stress of being in charge of every aspect of the store and essentially doing my own job and the managers (because they don't give me an assistant manager for just a one-month stretch). Anyway yeah blah blah blah I hope I don't tank it lol.

    What's going on with you, Sue?

    I literally cannot believe that I just watched a Johnny Cash video from beginning to end. Furthermore, I cannot believe that I kind of liked it.

    I literally sat down to reply to you last night and then my friend texted me wanting to go for a McDonalds run and then all of a sudden I was at McDonalds as if by sheer lack of will!

    I will name my infant child Rasputin, do you think this will have a negative effect on his life? The biyatch I had sex with to create him is using this as Exhibit A in the court case as to why I should not be allowed within 50 feet of him, but I stand by my naming choices. It will build character you see.

    I swear to Jesus I replied to that last message lol - oh the days just go by so quickly lately it's hard to keep track of what I've done and what I haven't!

    I'm sorry I suck

    But yeah in answer to your question there is surprisingly little going on with me! Since the entire liking-my-roommate saga, my love life has run dry, so it's just a cycle of hanging out with friends and working... so much working. Oh the working. You don't want to hurry into full-time work, let me tell you that much.

    I'm about to go to bed because I have to get up at 7am for more of the working, but we shall talk again very soon!

    We'll even get back to the good times when I had the energy to exchange witty banter!

    (You really do need to get Facebook - suppose PokeCommunity shuts down one day without a word and I'm left with nothing but your name and the vain hope that one day you may appear on my Skype online list?)

    As much as I appreciate my cake, I am dying with anticipation over your predicament with the ladies! What happened tell me everything! I assume it's not good since you've taken a while to feel OK, so I worry about you

    You have not yet updated me on how the things in your life have gone since our chat!

    I wish for this to be rectified at once!

    I'm sorry! I only came online for a little bit and then had to leave again!

    Good news is though.... I HAVE THE INTERNET! I AM BACK FOR REAL-REAL (not for play-play!)

    Now that I'm back in the game, first things first. You are in high school. You are. I'm aware that the British people call it "college" in the last two years and go to a different building so they can feel all special and grown up, but it's high school. It's Year 11 and 12. Silly Britons

    Now - well I can no longer say that I no longer drink, because I've tried quite a few alcohol beverages and even felt what I think might be the early stages of feeling tipsy (note that I say the early stages, my tolerance for alcohol seems to be abnormally high considering i've never drunk before - then again I've mostly been drinking the girly concoctions that are like 4% alcohol). However, I will give you my logic for not drinking before.

    The logic I had at the time was a few things: Firstly, I believed I had an addictive personality which led to me being the obese thing I used to be, so I thought alcohol was probably not a good idea for me. Secondly, I had tried a few sips of alcohol before and found that they either tasted awful or left a burning sensation in my throat which I didn't like. Thirdly, I had this idea in my head that you don't need alcohol to have fun and that people who begin drinking start to become to dependent on it for a good time, which is very sad.

    Now looking back on it, I realise that I was lonely and had very few friends (none of whom would have wanted to drink) and was fooling myself into thinking I was above all the fun people in my age group were having to make myself feel better. Now, of course, I'm not a teenager anymore and I've wasted the last four years of my life sitting in a chair when I could have been out and about doing things and experiencing life like real lifelike people tend to do!

    So now I've wasted my clubbing and wild party drinking years, which is not something I want you to do. You use these years, have the fun I never did! Don't go too wild though, we don't want to lose our Barrels in a cloud of alcohol

    LOL that pic, my God I had no idea. I took like four or five of them trying to make it look just right and then it turns out my body does innuendo for me even when I'm not trying. That's how advanced I am, you see.

    I hope the sunshine has come back to your universe now that I have returned!

About Me

    Biography
    I was born. Then I grew up. But that wasn’t fun, so I grew back down again and started catching Pokémon.

    Most people are decent - and the more friends you make, the better life gets. So if you'd like to say hi, go ahead and do that thing! ;)
    Interests
    I like creating. Writing, drawing, vidding, programming… you name it, there’s a good chance I’ve failed abysmally at it. (Probably had fun though.)

    In general? Philosophising about stuff I’ll never know, reading Brian Michael Bendis, ordering things I have no need of from Amazon, arting around in Photoshop and watching old Munsters episodes. Not all at the same time.

    Snorlax. Since forever. I used to dream about getting a big ol’ Snorlax-shaped beanbag.

    …Who am I kidding? I *still* dream about that.
