So, the Jen girl I mentioned last week is on vacation this week, which is both a good and a bad thing. Good, because hopefully I won't have to hear about it from the girl up at Long Beach all week. She didn't bring it up today, and I just hope it keeps up the rest of the week, but i'm not betting on it. Bad, because since she's one of our shuttle drivers, the rest of us have to pick up the slack. It means I stay for about another half hour or so, which isn't all that horrible. Today was a decent day, save for the rain. I normally like the rain, but once in a while when it rains while i'm at work, it gets on my nerves. It didn't really rain too hard though, thankfully. Although on the drive up to Long Beach, my windows started to fog up and made it hard to see, but I made it there and back no problems.

Today when I was pulling out of Del Taco from getting lunch, I saw the most beautiful girl walk past and into the building. I was pretty captivated when I first saw her...and I think i've seen her before. She looks somewhat like Johnna, which I think might be part of the reason I find her so captivating. Anyway...I saw her about a month ago or so when I went to Staples to pick up a few pens and if its the same girl, and i'm pretty sure it is, she must live around here. I hope I can run into her again sometime...I don't really know why, but i'm just dying to get to know her.

The past few days up at the Long Beach airport at work, one of the people I work with has been scheming to get me hooked up with one of the shuttle drivers at my station, but i've made it pretty obvious without outright saying it that i'm not interested. At first it was kinda funny, but now...four days later, its getting a bit annoying. I don't really know what sort of talk she's been passing back and forth between me and the shuttle driver, so I can't really say if she's just bullshitting me or not...but I think she is. Mainly because the shuttle driver (we'll call her Jen) hasn't said a word about anything like that. Of course, she could just be shy like I am, and I could be off...but my gut is telling me i'm right. But it's just getting on my nerves, hearing it day in and day out. Luckily its only for about an hour a day, but it still bugs me. I just feel like i'm being put on the spot, and i'm very uncomfortable on said spot. Another thing that bugs me about it, is that i'm all uncomfortable around Jen now, I just feel like i'm being lied about, what with her being told things about me that may not be true. Again, I don't know exactly what she's been telling Jen, but I don't like it either way. *shrug*

My trip to Arizona was great, and i'm gonna be going back in June, if I get a week off. One of my other friends that i've known for years on the internet is planning on making a trip down to AZ as well, and I hope to be there when it happens. There was only one uncomfortable moment that i'm not going to get into here, but it wasn't a huge deal.

Okay, time to go on a video game nerd rant. Stick with me, people!

Alright, rewind back to two weeks ago, when I pre-ordered the re-release of Metal Gear Solid 3. Konami (the company that produces the game) was giving consumers two versions to choose from. A regular edition, and a limited edition, which included two extra discs. One you were supposed to get when you pre-ordered the limited edition, and the other came with the LE itself. So, going into EB Games, I made a point to the guy working there that I wanted the limited edition, and not the regular one. So, he took care of it. About a week later I went back in to buy something else, and add some money onto my pre-order, and I asked again to make sure I was getting the limited edition. He said (paraphrasing, mind you), "don't worry, its taken care of." The other guy working that day even said he'd put aside a copy of the disc you got when you pre-ordered (I believe EB thought they weren't supposed to give them out until you picked up the game itself), with a note that had my name on it. So of course I went home satisfied that I had the LE in the bag.

Fast forward to last night. I was looking forward to picking the game up, so I put my phone off of vibrate so if they called while I was asleep, i'd be awake for it. I went to sleep, and woke up around 12PM, with no call. I figured i'd leave a tiny bit later than usual for work, just in case they called before then. 2PM rolls around, and I say oh well, and leave for work. I go to work, and around 3PM I get a call saying it came in. Great. I went in after work to pick it up, and the guy working at EB , after I mentioned what I was there to pick up, asked if I pre-ordered the LE or the regular edition. I said that I should've gotten the LE, and when he looked it up in the computer, it turns out I hadn't. Needless to say I was pissed, considering I came in twice, trying to make absolutely sure. But I kept my cool, and left disappointed. I got the game though, and in order to try and make it up to me, the EB guy started looking around for something else he could give me. I ended up getting what I assume you can only get when you pre-order another game, which was slightly comforting, but obviously not enough.

Anyway, I left uber pissed, and without what I wanted. Oh well, such is life I guess. On the bright side this is the only time they've screwed me. Since i'm in there enough, the guys recognize me and usually hook me up with stuff for free. I'm still gonna give them my business too, since they're all nice guys. I much prefer going to a store where I get a more personal touch when i'm there, its just a niec thing to have. Anyway...that was the "highlight" of my life recently. On Friday, I once again leave for Arizona, and come back on Monday. Nothing else to really update on, so this comes to a close. Ja ne.

Lately I find myself with no incentive to stay up late anymore. I've been going to bed around midnight (which is early for me) more often than not. I don't know what I expect to happen, but I get extremely bored by around 11PM, and just decide instead of staying up and doing nothing, to go to bed instead. Yeah...
