The 30th

I know I said I was going to find a job. I just haven't gotten around to it. I am such a procrastinator. If I am aware of being a procrastinator, does it make it somewhat better? Or is it better to be unaware of your shortcomings?

At least I have a new excuse - US Open is on. USA channel is providing me hours and hours of tennis action all day and most of night.

The only problem is new fall shows are starting. I haven't even finished watching last season's shows. I love to surf through my 700 channels. There is always something to watch. I even have On-Demand. So if I miss a show - chances are I can watch it at another time. My on screen channel guide changed recently. The best part about the change is that I can search for a longer period of time. So I can create plenty of excuses.

I watched Prison Break last night. I wasn't going to add this show. But there have been a ton of articles about it in the papers recently - mostly because of the fact it is being filmed in Joliet. It wasn't bad. I'm not sure I will be making it must see but if schedule allows I will watch.

There are going to be a couple of problem nights on the new TV watching. I have fallen in love with Veronica Mars this summer and have already ordered the DVDs but there are other shows on at the same time.

Well since the matches on right now are not really important - I'm going to try and watch a couple of the eppies of last seasons shows on tape before I have to stop watching Lost all together. Can't wait for that DVD.

I mean it this time

I am gonna find a job! Really!

I have my interview suit. I have some shirts to go with my suit. I do need to iron one of the shirts. My shoes are clean and polished.

I have started updating my resume. I have a good start.

I can't believe that the live feeds are off. Arnold sucks. Supposedly the feeds might not be back on until the show's over last night.

List update

After reading over my previous list I have accomplished some things.

  • I read Harry Potter. I enjoyed it very much. I did cry at the end. I have tried to explain to many adults that haven't read the books how good they are but they just can't understand. It's too bad, because I love them.
  • I have thrown away all but one of the empty boxes from my new computer.
  • I have eaten food.
  • I have called my mother. I have also visited and returned her cat. I miss the cat very much, but not enough to get a cat of my own.
  • My microsoft office is installed and working.
  • My rebate forms are all filled out and mailed. I spent a lot of money sending them with certified mail and return receipt. The mail lady thought I was crazy to send them like that, but I can't afford not to receive the money.

There are many things I haven't done.

  • Finish resume. I have copied the floppy disc, not really, I e-mailed the files on the disc from my friend's computer to myself. I don't have floppy drive, she doesn't have writable disc drive.
  • Find job. This ties into first. I did find some appliable jobs in this weeks paper.
  • Watch live feeds. See below.
  • Sell crap, I mean valuable merchandise, on e-bay. I'm just not really in the mood. I tried to research some prices and what I found wasn't selling. I think I will wait.

New things on my list:

  • Buy interview suit.
  • Buy some shirts to go with pants I already have.
  • Get rid of spiders invading my house. It's so gross and creepy to find spiders everywhere you turn. I think they are worse than ever.
  • Get more sleep. I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately. Don't know what the problem is but it better stop soon.
