I decided to worry about stupid little things for a bit: winter is coming and I need a new scarf. Of course it's going to be handmade, but I have no idea what type of scarf I should make. I haven't even decided on the colours yet. But I do know it needs to be able to compete with my friend Lea's BFS. That doesn't mean it has to be 12 feet long, but I do want something that stands out...

Worrying about this kind of stuff is fun.

Back in Phoenix.

Training for a new promotion... which is a great thing. The down side is it has me staying in Phoeonix for 12 days, then 2 at home, repeat until Thanksgiving.

Annoyances: Flew in yesterday and the hotel I was set to be in wanted to charge me $15/night for net (which I need for work) and put a $50/day hold on my personal debit card on top of $140/night for a room. With the 60+ nights I'm staying until the end of Nov... they're getting $8,000+ of room rentals from just me. There were 3 of us staying here for that length of time, all in separate rooms. $24,000+ in room rentals.

Last trip there were no issues, comp internet, and no mention of personal cards. This trip they hit us with the net thing and then when the first of us went to check in they asked for her personal card for incidentals... which was declined, because they tried to put a hold for $600 ($50/day x 12 days) on for incidentals and she didn't have it. I sent an email to have the company update info to accepting the hold for that and refax the authorization form so we could check in. An hour later, no fax. Called corporate and was told it had been sent. Asked at the desk and was told their fax machine had been down all day. WTF? Why not tell me that an hour ago?

Got pissed, called and had us rebooked to a place on the other side of our daily training point. New place is $80/night with comp internet and free breakfast, dinner, and cocktail hour. The first place lost over $24,000 in room rentals on this trip and was blacklisted by a company that holds this type of training almost continually. lol.

Happy things: Rental place was out of full size when I showed up so I got bumped up to a 2014 Mustang convertible that they just got in the night before for this 12 day stay. Not bad. Also brought my PS3 this trip and managed to disable OnCommand hotel BS and change inputs. I have 3-4 hours a night and a day off in the hotel free, and Phoenix is hot as hell, so plan is to unwind by grinding the hell out of Graces and Disgaea 4.

Little Lady and I bought an old steamer trunk today (circa 1880's). Neither of us noticed until we got it home but there is a really nice print of a mother and her daughter pasted on the inside of the lid, looks really awesome in the living room!

The project manager that hired me was talking to me today.

This is the first time he's talked to me since I started working here.

Two years ago.

I need a Jump to Conclusions map to help my indecisiveness...or whatever it does. 

Whatever, great movie.

It's too long to explain so I'll just leave my Facebook thread with names redacted here:



Sigh, Nintendo.

Damn ashton, that's horseshit. Seriously MS should take a page from Nintendo's book on underhanded bullshit.

In better news, 1 year ago I weighed 395ish pounds. Today, I weigh 358. Almost 40 pounds off and I'm not even on a diet, just weights and a mile walk to the gym and back again. I'd feel amazing if it weren't for a very large lack of work coming in, making money pretty tight.

TASTY!

Whoops, there goes my desire to buy a 3DS and more stuff on the virtual consoles.

Damn dude. That sucks donkeys.

Why redact the name, though? We all know your real name is Colonel Mustard von Puddlepants.
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.
