So I had my testy thing at Voicestream wireless today. The chick, Meredith [who was attractive, w0ot!], sat me down in this little room with a computer and said to take the warm-up typing test, then do the real test, then answer the 12 windows user-skills questions as fast as I could. I said okay. Sat down, finished 3 paragraphs in the 3 minutes of the warm up — I didn’t feel so hot about that. I hit the button for the real typing test, and it was 5 minutes; I got right around 6 paragraphs done; I didn’t get to practice the last 3, so I had to do the last half pretty slowly … then the windows skill test came up. Click click click click and I was done. Meredith then came back in to check my scores …
She looked at the papers coming out of the printer and she was floored. She told me that I had the highest scores of any person she had ever seen. 93 words per minute typing, and 17 seconds to finish the skill test. WOW! I am stoked at the fact that I am just about guaranteed a job @ a minimum of $12/hr [goes up once experience is reviewed], but I’m even more super happy about typing 90+ words per minute. That is freaking crazy! It makes me feel good =) And so I am just about guaranteed a job … with paid training!
Update: so yea, I went and saw tomb raider … with Angelina “Got Tit?” Jo Lee …. it was good. then i went to get gas and found out somzoesne vandalized my truck and put some of cemenet in my gas cap, so i can’t put any gas in. so i was bummmmmed about that, and then over here at tore’s house, i wasjn all sad, and then we decided to drink, and it’s coool, cuz i’m drunka sa a funking skunk it’s coool as hell hahahahahahaa. like, i just ook a shot and im’ so fucked up. i can’t ucking typea dnd i’m laughing so hardhahaha it’s cool. why is this so funny i don’t know but i am luahging my ass fof hahahhahaahaha, rock one ~~~~ g’night eveyrone

Today was the most boring day I’ve had in a long time. Work consisted of me playing starcraft and thinking up things to do. If VoiceStream offers me $13 or more tomorrow, my term at HPI is done.
I was thinking about this today … what about gay people and gym showers? I mean, gay men get to go into the men’s shower room and view the cornucopia of manhood that abounds there. But they can’t quite go into the women’s locker room — I can imagine the looks the girls would give at a buck-naked guy waltzing into the showers. Never really thought about it, but gay guys have it made — chicks dig them, sex is, afaik, usually random and non-committal, and they get to go into the men’s locker room! they have everything going for them [except that ostracizing thing]. whack, huh?
I’m thinkin i’m gonna go party friday night … unless something else comes up that is better. Interview @ 3:30pm tomorrow, I need by beauty sleep — night-night!
Have you ever noticed how when it’s really hot out an ominous, oppressive heavy silence falls on everything? Saw that the other day at lunch: cars go by silently, people look to be moving through the air like it’s syrup, everything is muffled. Really quite intriguing.
Put together a working format for randominc.com — please check out the two possible layouts: randominc.com/new.html and randominc.com/new2.html Let me know what you think — yes, they are similar, but still noticably different.
What is up with people in general? I feel like I don’t have a clue about much anymore … seem to be getting a *lot* less outgoing as the days of this week go by. wtf, huh? I’ll look into that tonight while I’m relaxing. Oh, and I have no nic for my laptop until friday or saturday. [sigh] take care …
it’s tuesday, another lame day of the week. i have had a pretty blah day, very not-invigorating, and a little depressing. i didn’t sleep really well last night. that sucked. i wish i knew so much more than i do about everything. [sigh]
i haven’t ate a single thing today. i am starting to feel tired. i wonder if eating small amounts of food in combonation with being more active will make me shed some un-needed pounds.
registered randominc.com/net/org today — i think this site will move to randominc.org sometime, not sure when, though. i’ll put up a redirect, and eventually put up a business page at randominc.com. maybe a mailserver, so all you chitlins can have nifty email addresses. next on the docket: office with broadband =)
i’m off to go rot the night away trying to waste time. i think i might make the business site.
As I came down from that particular bluff, tears still streaming down my face, i realized that i am not randal, nor any past incarnation of him. i am changed, for better or worse. i am, however, still fully incapable of understanding those things that are most important to me. after cursing god, this earth and myself, i feel a little purged, cleansed … but still slashed and bloody.
the road home was long; i hope i sleep like a newborn. i wish even more that i awake with such carefree innocence.
so yea, i’m layin there in bed this morning, after being out till early this morning, and my mom comes in at 8:30 in the fucking morning and wakes me up to say “hi” and to tell me that I need to go to church. i was irritated as hell. already.
ditched church, which was cool — fixed the comments deal on my site, went to the mall and checked out bags for my laptop, which by the way, is super-awesome to have. Got a Mocha-Chip blizzard from Dairy Queen, which was really good. Came home, took a nap, woke up, felt horny, did the one-handed dance and then proceeded to do nothing but post in the anandtech forums and talk to people on aim. Oh, I also set up a semi-public ftp server … and that’s about it.
On the docket for tomorrow:
1. wake up … i hate this part
2. get ready for work … i hate this part too
3. work … that’s three in a row. coincidence?
4. meet up with Sam after work … that will be good
5. leave sam, realize how lamely desperate and horny I am
6. go home, masturbate furiously until 1am
7. pass out in hopes of a better tuesday.
Sounds like fun — ready, set, go!
Update: I made is so that now I can use double quotes “””” and I can use ( and ) without the db wigging out. smilies here I come =)
Went and watched the Colorado Avalanche stomp all over the New Jersey Devils in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, making them the best in the NHL. Tore, Laura, myself and a little later Tony had a great time watching the game at Old Chicago — Go Avs!
The game ended and we met up with Janelle over at Josh ‘n John’s … the ice cream was good. Saw Lily, Amy, Keith, Adrian and Ryan over there, as per usual, which was cool. It was good to see janelle for more than 5 minutes. We had a good time, then everyone split, and Laura and I chilled for a while at the park.
About 1:30 Laura gets ready to go out to Hide ‘n Seek [club]. I walk her to her car, and she has a flat. And her spare is toast. hrmm … So I gave her a ride over there. No one else showed up, so at 2:40 am I gave her a ride home. I’m here now at home around 3:35 … that’s a lot of driving. Earlier today I was thinking about how much I enjoy a good drive, but I really don’t like driving around shuttling people. hrmm … oh well, it was good.
And that’s been my day. Oh, my mom is home. ‘Ungh!’ does not describe how I feel about that. I want her to stay not-at-home. More thoughts tomorrow … ‘night
Man, today has been dull. I heard and saw that a bunch of people went to phs graduation … that’s pretty cool. I have spent my day lounging around at work figuring out how to turn Database information into printable labels. not going to well.
As for tonight, i have no plans. as for tomorrow, i have no plans, although i think my mom comes home soon [suck!] — I really wouldn’t mind if I didn’t see her for another year or two. [gets back on track …] Yes, avalanche game, possibly over @ Tony’s place, starts at 6. Call either tony or I for details.
*rand0m goes back to doing almost nothing. breathing a little, blinking occasionally. that’s about it. someone should set something up tonight so rand0m won’t be so bored.
Update: The people page is now in the database and super-administratable — look for a plethora of updates soon.
Well, today it 06-07-2001. Inspired by fondly recollected memories, this is a rather sentimental day to me, for personal reasons of which I will not divulge.
Make the best of today because, well, there won’t ever be another one like it.
Welp, I went ahead and hounded some places about employment. Contact Tek Systems, a hiring firm, went and had an interview. They’ll see what they can bring up, but the lady said the best entry-level position for minimal-experience people is cable modem installers for Adelpha. She said they make $14-15/hr to start. Wow.
I also went and applied @ VoiceStream Wireless … they are paying ~ $12/hr to start, with zero experience. Requirements: English. Windows 95. 20+ WPM typing. yea, easy what? If I want that job, it’s definitely mine. At more than $12/hr too … it’s far away, but worth it.
Gonna go call Gateway and MCI again right now.
Miscellaneous nifty thing: open up aim, and start talking to someone. type a couple words, then hit control+backspace, and watch a word get deleted. Handy as hell, I’m tellin ya [grin]
So yea, I’m watching ‘Art of War’ over at the pad, and this racoon tries to break into Tim’s room. It was hilarious … it was just up on the roof chillin. hehehehe … on another note, played b-ball w/ tore and tony, and just about killed myself; it feels good to be tired, though. ‘night
