Hi everyone, big news (as usual).
I'm starting my new job at Stage-It Inc. working as an A/V Technician and Driver next week. This position earns a shitload more money than my last job and we're tickled pink that I got it.
I've got a job interview with Staples tomorrow and I'm going to go, but they probably won't get me if they don't throw in benefits (preferably medical and for family, too). The advertised salary is also much lower (<$4000 or so) than Stage-It. So barring a sudden salary correction, it looks like Stage-It will get me.
Also Stage-It has an office dog. His name is Hudson, or as everyone calls him, Huuuuuuudsoooooooon.
Hey, I used to play this a long time ago, and I forgot all about it until a few weeks ago - anyone heard of Kingdom of Loathing
? I'm on there, my username is Niq (obviously) and it's pretty darn fun if you ask me.
I haven't been reliably online in like two years, sue me if everything on here seems new to me. Like youtube. That shit...is incredible. Wowee-zowee. Whoa whoa wee wa.
I'm excited again about Tekken. Tekken 6, that is. New characters include a female Voldo and Tekken's answer to Lion Rafale. Customizations look deeper than ever and the official movie even seems to indicate that custom items will be available to use as part of a combo - the trailer ends with Bryan Fury shotgunning (!) someone at the end of an air juggle. IS IT REALLY REAL OR REALLY IN-GAME CUTSCREEN?! WHO CAN SAY.!?!,>.

My wife and I are off to Montreal on Thursday to see her dad. We'll be back on Sunday.
HEY MISSISSAUGA PEOPLES. I need you to give me your phone numbers as I don't have very many of them at all and I'd like to reconnect with you guys. I'm screening comments so that random peoples can't see them. Looking forwards to talking and seeing you guys soon.

( Huge picture of me and my wife.Collapse )
OK? We're moving to Ontario, because we're sick of BC. Olympics suck, psycho roommates suck, jobs in BC suck. Life here was neat for a while. I am bringing the best things I found in BC back home with me, those being my lovely and loving wife and our child (still in development).
So yeah, a few days before Valentine's Carolyn is admitted to the hospital with back pains. Surprise! We're 8 weeks pregnant. Despite two home pregnancy tests. Despite three doctor's visits, the last at 6 weeks. We're not happy that we only found out that far along, but what are you gonna do? We have a baby on the way and it's great, even though it's more or less all we think about.
My roommate flipped out because I wanted my brother-in-law to move in and basically threw all of us out on our asses, but that's ok because unlike her, Chris (said in-law) and myself have places to stay (as I've been living with Carolyn for a while). Oh well, my name's off the lease, and she gets to be evicted and have the nasty references from the super now. Seriously, all she had to do was leave us alone for two weeks and everything would have been cool, but some people don't have any sense.
Anyways I must move my stuff out of there pretty soon, I'm just waiting for Chris to get off work so he can give me a hand. I realize I haven't updated in a good long time, but as you might be able to tell, I've been busy. Also the internet connection here is terrible. WAS terrible, anyways. This is our first day of Shaw digital cable and it kicks the utter piss out of Telus. We see ads for Telus that say something like "Honk if you like high-speed internet!" and we just sigh and roll our eyes like we've seen it all before. Like our world-weary attitude excuses us from our cynical outlook on what we think is a fairly crappy internet service.
Yeah, so the tone of this particular journal update seems rather melancholy, but that's just because I hate moving stuff around, and emptying out my apartment seems like a big load of nasty-pasty work. I made that word up. That one over there, in that sentence. Because I am not speaking you have to guess how it is pronounced and either way, I will probably tell you that you are saying it incorrectly. It is actually pronounced "sweaty".

Hi everyone! Major things have been happening to me lately.
Firstly, for those of you who didn't know, I did indeed marry Carolyn on the weekend in a small ceremony in which a large number of people made complete asses of themselves. Actually only a few, only a few did. OK so yeah, you can stop asking if I was joking or if I've just been kidding about this for the last 3 months. Specifically, people from Ontario, I'm looking at YOU. You can ask George Sljivic - he was my best man. Everyone probably had too much to drink, and whatnot.
Secondly, my new stepsister-in-law stole about $1200 from us. We are not happy with that. I will say no more about it because it will serve merely to infuriate me.
Thirdly, just because if you're skimming, you should know I GOT MARRIED. READ THAT PART AGAIN.
Pictures of our wedding day soonish, my dad is sending out a CD and we've got my mother-in-law's camera already.
Just a reminder, we are still registered at Home Outfitters - if you wanna get something for our registry, feel free.
Lastly, birthday wishes go out to my REAL older sister, the one who REALLY cares about me - I'm talking about JESS (in Sac'mento)! Happy birthday, sis, I love you.
Getting married is fun.

ABC news just aired a 2 minute safety clip on how to properly open a champagne bottle without injury. Then followed it up by citing a study saying common housework can help prevent breast cancer.
PEOPLE ARE GETTING DUMBER ALL THE TIME BECAUSE OF SHIT LIKE THIS.

Dealing with government is not fun. It is instead something akin to tying a knot in my foreskin; I'm sure that I CAN, I just probably don't WANT to. And yes, I am deliciously uncut, folks. Deal with it!
So me and my bride-to-be apparently need to get us a marriage license before we can get a marriage commisioner to get their ass to the wedding. In fact, they won't even talk to me until we file one, which is not extremely helpful but I'm sure we can probably get that done in the next day or so.
So yeah, I bet you guys probably want to see pictures of her. In a side-note, I nearly typed pricktures. This is because I read too much Leisuretown. If you know what I'm talking about, then you know what I'm talking about. If you don't, you should learn better.
Watched some football highlights today and was greatly entertained. I'm heading out now to see if I can't get a haircut and a dye job. First dye job ever, actually. Let's see if I'm even more handsome as a blackhead.
Also Guitar Hero 2 has the most kick-ass ironic ending song ever. This bird you cannot change, indeed. Clive Winston is cool.
Who would win in a fight between Eric Clapton and God? The answer may surprise you!( The AnswerCollapse )
