    At retail work, I now have a key for operation of the mechanical forklift and scissor lifts. My direct training will be tomorrow, and all should go without incident. Here's hoping my actual use of the machines will have the same results. Days when I have to work and my wife are at home are rather long, just for the lack of taking a moment to visit her when she goes to lunch.

    Draft.

    During exercise (within which I had another 0CM stop in Densha de go Final) I actually heard about something interesting on NPR's Fresh Air for a change. A movie adaptation has been made of this story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve_Years_a_Slave . I've added the text to my reading list.

    Birthday and anniversary festivities went well today. Dinner was at a place we haven't been for years, dessert was shakes from the original location. Traffic was rather heavy on the way home ...

    My wife and I watched Pacific Rim while we did the Halloween candy duty today. The movie was OK. I made fun of it in spots and she laughed along with it, so that's good enough for me in general. The initial part of the movie might have been the most intriguing, in that it shown a world united in a common cause against an enemy; yet in this fictional world, such unity only exists when the threat is extraterrestrial. How much unity exists in our present reality now? Do we really need to have that ...

    Today's highlight was having to remove a dead possum from the backyard. The temperature was rather cool today, so thankfully, by the time we went out to get the carcass into the garbage bag, it was already very stiff. It didn't seem to die from a fight or anything, as it wasn't a scene of gore at its place of death.

    Draft.

    Things I need to do these upcoming three days off: More work on spamming business email. Go to folks place tomorrow for business reasons and to see my sister's child. Stop playing GTA5 so much. Try to write more in the middle of the day, if I hit lulls in doing business work. Thursday will be a day off, though, in light of the coming fifty anniversary and birthday.

    I went through the start of the day thinking that I wasn't as drained after The Friend Visit as I was in times past, but after a bit of the day went by without a minor but noticeable headache not going away, which was enough to prevent me from concentrating on anything, the only thing I felt compelled to do was to lie down on the floor of my wife's PC room and nap.

    In the course of festivities last night I consumed a third of a liter of Black Label, and had a few beers after that. ...

    They are upstairs and watching that new Avengers broadcast show or whatever the hell that is, and are awaiting my return. It's time for me to get my semi annual drink on. If games proceed today as last time, the order will be Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, and then Rock Band 3.

    Another visit and day of excursion with the now-16-year-old child, another day of total aggravation. I think the best way to summarize the day is by describing how it started, just as we were about ...

    The weekend visit is a go, so entries for these next few days will be minimal.

    Songs. Sim program had a crash in the middle of the session there, and it came after I thought I had given it plenty of time to flush out loading a song that I exited out of, and the crash came during the preload title screen, which is something that I can't recall specifically having occured before. My hands needed to physically warm up to get playing up to speed.

    Lunar Beat. Extra Mode. ...

    I seem to have figured out how to make a separate Google Plus page for my business entity, as well as have ways to refer that page to my personal Google Plus page. It appears that my business G+ page is already at +4, and I'm not quite sure how that has happened (as I haven't received any notification of who made those +1 entries), but at least it appears that I have a few watchers already. The next thing to do is to adjust my header image files to something that I have taken a picture of, and I ...

    At the start of the day today, I resolved that I wanted to get the main focus of GTA 5 over and done with, and the reasons for doing so are mainly 1) so that I can have more time to the day in which I can do things, particularly on my work days, and 2) so that I can have the money accumulate and appreciate in stock holdings in the meantime rather than wait for more time to pass and for the opportunity to capitalize to slip further away. At the start of the day the characters had $20 million apiece, ...

    I slept for half of the day today, and had the last part of that extended out because the cat decided to wake me up so that I could lift the blanket for him to burrow underneath it and lay down against my body. I was powerless to resist.

    In today's play of Densha De Go Final, I managed to get a no continue clear of a long course with a 4 (out of 5) star difficulty rating, and had one stop where I was exactly on time and only one centimeter over the stop point. I originally intended ...

    My wife and I both have tomorrow off of work, so we inadvertently ended up making the final push through GTA5 to get the main story missions completed today. Option C. I haven't sought out spoilers to see how much of a difference that choice actually makes at the end. Perhaps now's a good of a time as any to do so.

    I was a bit sluggish at the start of work, and long story short, I had to sit through an hour segment of training at the computer during the first few hours of the day, ...

    I think what I'll attempt to do this week is make a week's worth of Everstreets draft entries within my days off from work. Lately, it seems like I've hit something of a stride and have been hitting word counts closer to 1000 than 500 for my entries, so if I prepare a week's worth of material in advance, that should be something that I can do within a day or two if I dedicate enough time to it.

    Today's GTA5 discovery, or at least the latest thing found which my wife dearly enjoys, ...

    Today's work day introduced me to a third function in the job - binning. This task involves me taking a pallet of product, finding empty shelf space to put items into from the pallet, and printing lables on the items that I put onto the shelves. The tine consuming part is trying to make sure that all free space is utilized properly so that everything can fit in properly. This consitutes an exciting event of my work day.

    I haven't received any update on work that my in law might have ...

    Work was slightly interesting today in that a few things different from the new normal happened. I was sent out to assist in cart pushing for ten minutes, and once I was outside and was able to see what supply was on hand, I was able to determine that my assistance was completely unnecessary. One of the cart pushers was returning from his break as I approached, but neither door was close to being completely empty. The second point of interest is that I was one of the many people recruited to help ...
