Work has finally recognized me as part of the retention team, instead of being part time outbound. I'll be getting the nightly differential, which is $120 more a month. Also the monthly bonus, which can be up to $500 a month. Yay!
I also got 3 mystery calls last month, which are $50 each. I also got one last week. Which is good, cuz I just had to pay $311 car bill for an O2 sensor. And $306 to my car insurance. Good for another 6 months! Woo!
Last weekend Chris and I headed over to Dana's for the weekend. We got there around 1:30am, and hung out and watched tv. Then we got up at 12:30, and headed over to the Galleria. WE did some shoppaging. Dana got 2 dresses! Yay! I got more capris and tanks. Later that night we went to Dave and Buster's, and ate good foods. Then we played games. we got like 900 tickets, mainly thanks to Chris. Next day we went to Niagara Falls, Chris had never been. It was great, weather was hot, a bit cloudy, and perfect for some mist. We went on the Maid of the Mist, and got soaked. Pictures soon. Waiting to get on the boat was a bitch. Plastic stickiness. We got in the front of the boat! Never happens. We went by the first set of falls, and the wind was kinda crazy. I had my camera in a plastic baggie, so nothing would happen. Then we got to the second part of the falls, and i tried to take lotsa pictures. They were prettier than I remembered. Chris loved it. Dana and I were cracking up at how soaked we were getting. Loved it. Once we got back, we went up to the path around the waterfall, and got completely wet. We then had a picnic by the falls. Dana was excellent at packing lunches, she felt too much like a mom haha. We saw a some couples take their wedding pictures by the falls, it was cute. We got out of the place just before a really bad storm hit. Then we took a nap when we got back. Then we went to duff's, and ate a crapload of wings. Yum. Then dairy queen! Thin mint blizzard. It was good seeing dana, even though she came to visit the week before. We had wanted to see her again this weekend, but amazingly, she chipped a tooth. We were planning on doing fondue night! Next time.
Chris gets to keep his job! Amazing. He made his weekly standard of $600, just a one time thing. After that, his weekly standard $450. :) It was SO so so so close too. Those bastards at CCE are evil evil people, they don't tell you everything about the job till it's too late. I told Chris, if I see his boss ever, I'm going to punch her in the face. :) We went out to celebrate last thursday night, by going to see The Dark Knight. We went over at shopping town mall, and there were some people that got dressed up as some of the characters. Mainly teeny boppers. Lots of geeks out in the parkinglot. We went to Fridays to get some munchies. They're open till 12. Yay! Chris had his blue moon, and I had 3 LIT's. Yum. I was buzzed by the time we went to go see the movie. It was filling up quick, so we just sat in the reserved seats, since they were right upfront. They even handed out free comic books too. They were giving shirts away, and Chris almost got one, but this HS asshole hyperextended Christopher's finger and elbow. Just for a fucking shirt. Later on he turns to Chris and goes "No guts, no glory" I wanted to punch him in the face, but I was also buzzed, so I didn't. I told Chris that the guy's gf is a cunt. Then I looked over and saw she was pregnant. Then I felt bad. But then I didn't, cuz the guy's life was over. HS baby daddy trying to get everything for free. haha. I'm such a bitch. BUT.... the movie was amazing. Definitely worth the midnight screening. Loved it. Mostly. Except for the girl ratio in the movie. Sexist.
Last friday, we did nothing. We layed by the pool. Delicious. We were finally able to relax. Lovely. I got some color! So did Christopher. Mostly lobster color. I took the sting away by applying vinegar to his back, and it actually worked!
Next day was Krockathon. I wore my pants, chucks, and tank. Chris was able to wear his shorts. He also brought his soco, and I brought my rum. Took an hour to get there, so we listened to sickpuppies on the way. It was different from the last time I was there, there was acutally room for parking. I remember the last time, I had to park basically a mile away. I also came pretty late too. So we were in a lane with a bunch of cars, and there were sooo many beer cans strewed about. People were tailgating, playing beer pong, and grilling in their trucks. It was a pretty cool sight too see. Chris took atleast 7 shots of soco, i tried to suck it up and take some of my rum, but it wasn't happening. I can't do shots anymore. :( We walked over to the gates. The line to get id'd was longer than the line to get in surprisingly. We basically budged and hung out with drunk people. They weren't going to let me take in my excedrin, until they saw it written out on the pills. Then we made it in! Mass sea of people. Luna Halo was on, and we stood by the sound boards. It was an actually a good spot. Then it started to rain. Chris couldn't feel his nose, and I just laughed. Then we went to get some foods. We saw people getting high and pissing in the cornfield as we ate. We headed over to the beer hall/place. We got in line... well we bypassed the line by going to the outeredge. Some drunkies yelled at us, but we stayed there and got beer. After we had gottedn our beer, they still yelled at us, telling us where the line was. Does that make sense? No. They wanted a fight. I just kept drinking as they yelled. They were so drunk. All we had was a icecream and a fiber one bar. 12 Stones wasn't too bad either. All we wanted to see were Sick Puppies. We started moving up through the pit, and were only 2 people away from the front railings. There were these little girls infront of me. I knew they were going to get crushed. We were pretty dry before we got in there, but about a minute afterwards, we were drenched in people's sweat. It was pretty smelly. I guess this year they had firetruck hoses, which felt oh so good. Set change, and then Sick Puppies got on. They played a great set. Those girls in front of me suffered and tried elbowing everyone. Yeah didn't work. :) Sick puppies even played their Destiny Child's number, Say my name. They didnt throw their stuff out into the crowd, which I was a little upset about. We got some pictures of them signing stuff, and chris even played hackey with some random people. Shinedown came on, and played a good set. We were getting tired. Seether came on, and we stayed for like 2 songs and left. We were muddy, wet, tired, and hungry. We changed by the car, and chris wasn't wearing underwear. Typical. So he got nekkid in front of everyone at the parking lot. As we began to drive away, we get into this random pouring storm. we got out of there just in time. We headed over to buffalo wild wings, and had chili fries and wings. It was a full day. We were there from 2-8, then went to eat. We got back and watched tv.
Now I'm at work. Yay.
