immature enough to be a [swiss?] pirate....

i saw a guy that looked suspiciously like santa clause at work today. and a few minutes later a midget walked in.... coincidence? i think not.

actually, i've seen that guy before. he carries business cards on them that say santa clause and some hokey thing about not stopping believing. he said he gives 'em to kids. during christmas... a little cute.... a little creepy. but he seemed like a nice guy.

i'm auditioning for a summer job at navy pier being a part of a group of pirates who entertain the tourists. sounds like it could be pretty sweet, but i dont think i have any chance of getting a part. but hey, it couldnt hurt to try. at the very least it'll be a good experience. i want to do a play this summer if there's anything going on. i really liked doing the "reader theatre" style play last month, and am planning on auditioning for the one next month. being in that last one really whetted my appetite for theatre and acting. i got a lot of positive feedback about my performance. of course it was all from friends and family, so take it with a grain of salt, but i'd really like to get involved in the theatre program at cod. i wish i had gotten daytime classes so i could have the opportunity to be envolved in plays this semester. i'm thinking about only taking like 1 class this summer, depending on what i'm doing for a job, so i'd have time to do a play if there was one.

speaking of summer jobs if i don't get this navy pier gig, i'm thinking about applying to be a lifeguard at the lombard water park. who cares if the pay is crap and i'd be working with a bunch of sixteen year olds? i dont think i'll be able to handle working in the windowless environment of target... i'm just too immature. (they told me one reason i didnt get the position i applied for [the work of which i already did, just didnt have the title or extra pay] was partly because of the maturity level) and rob and i are taking the bartending class this summer so we can become bartenders.... right, griegs? you best be planning on that still.

okay. its almost 2 and i have to get up in the morning.

-vitamin water-that stuff is addicting
-75 sit ups with a 35lb plate. hurts so good.
-going to bed before 2 so that you can:
-wake up before your work calls to tell you you're 20 minutes late like they did this morning

today is a good day to send a slinky down an escalator

okay, so i was doing some digging through my old blog posts and decided 2 things: 1. i'm a good writer. and 2. i should start again.
so maybe i'm a bit biased, but whatever. thus here i write. no particular purpose, other than to account things. so i worked this morning, 8am yipee. i got off work at 230, so that was cool, but i'd almost rather stay an extra 2 hours since i was there anyway. i found out on thursday that somebody else got the position i applied for... the position i pretty much do the job of right now anyway. it hasnt been formally announced yet, so they wouldnt tell me who got it, but i think it went to this guy that never works in "blue world" (the side of the store i always work in) let alone electronics (it was the electronics specialist position). so i'm a bit disgruntled about that, but whatever. life goes on.
i'd like to get a job that involves being outside this summer, cuz i dont think i'll be able to stand being stuck inside the windowless trifecta of worlds that is target. i was thinking about checking out the lombard pool to see what kind of pay and hours i could get from being a lifeguard. sure its a high-school job. sure it'll pay shit. but what the hell? why not?
well, thats all i have to say for now.

-create. be it writing in a blog, creating pottery, or sketching in the margins of a textbook. just create. its fun.
-listen. listen to everyone. listen to everything. listen to nothing. take it all in.
