What a week it has been... We just finished doing the store's inventory today. This whole week was marred by a lot of events but in the end, it all worked out. We were short-handed, used a ton of hours but the end results will speak for themselves tomorrow. I've done 12 hour and 16 hour days this week. For some strange reason, I don't feel tired. Maybe I'm in denial. There are just a few events at my store where I spend a ton of personal hours: SWS and inventory. I know I'm not feeling it right now, but I'm gonna crash soon. Hopefully not but I really doubt it.

It's just a couple of weeks away before I find out if I passed or not. My mom has a feeling I passed. My aunt from a thousand miles away thinks I did pass even before the backgrounds (don't know the reliability on that, we'll see). The brass meets after labor day weekend. I will find my fate afterwards. This will be the last time you'll be hearing me talk about this till after the verdict has been handed out.

I need to sleep... inventory isn't done yet. I still have variances to finish and the truck to process tomorrow. Its an early start to another crazy day at HFT.

Just another day.... yeah right...

Yesterday, I was drafted to get a u-haul truck, and gather some store fixtures from a distant store by my DM. I was to travel to Sta. Maria and visit their old store and get the fixtures and drive back. Getting the truck was the easy part. What a drive!

I spent more time driving than loading up the fixtures in the truck and standing combined. When I was driving to and back, I thought to myself, darn, I should have brought my camera with me. There were nice spots that I thought deserved to be photographed. Nice shot of the ocean would've been nice. Then there were those spots that I observed from my GPS. According to the navi, there should have been a small lake in this area, but now it was dry and full of shrubs. Global warming. I believe I noticed 3 or 4 like that during my trip. It was a little hot in those areas that I drove past. Too bad, I didn't bring my camera.

Just a few more days till my inventory. If its gonna be like my recent audit, then it should be great!!!

Just got back from a visit with mom. We were watching the Zodiac this morning. I know what you're thinking. Its nothing better than to wake up, eat breakfast with mom while watching a movie about the zodiac killer. About the movie, it had a good ensemble and a great director, David Fincher. You might remember him from 7. Anyway, I had great hopes for the movie, despite what my spoiler of a sister said. The first 30 minutes was good but then it started to drag... then it kinda dragged some more... until I started to doze off. My mom was a total sport. She really stayed till the end. I never finished the movie because I had to use the little boys room. As soon as i came back, the movie was over. I jokingly told mom that, finally, the movie was over, huh? My mom agreed and gave away the ending! Nice, mom.

After watching the movie, I decided to pack up. At the last minute, I decided to head over to my brother for a quick visit and possibly dinner. I was outside his place, which was a gated community. I called his mobile, no answer. Tried his home phone, no answer. So much for surprise visits. I will never come unannounced again. I just drove home.

I'm on vacation by the way. I'll try and enjoy this one before I go crazy at work again.

Has it been that long since my last post? Dang!

I'll try and update as much as I can. After all, I am on vacation.

I got that 300 movie on blu-ray, so I'll try to do a little mini on that.

I saw the Untouchables on Blu-Ray. All I can say is WOW. The graphics sure are great! And my tv isn't a 1080p. I was impressed with the video transfer. That famous scene that took place by the stairs inside the train station was incredible. You could definitely watch it all over again.

Well, like I said, its been a while since I last posted. I'll try to correct that, but I said that before too...
