A lot of people got fired today... again.
Since spring, they've been cutting left and right at my corp.

What pisses everyone off is that things are going well and we are actually making good profits.
They're just cutting people to make the big numbers even bigger and get even more huge bonuses.

Corporate greed Greed is a fucking awful thing and it will fuck the whole world over eventually.

Ever since corporations had to let so many people go when the economy tanked, they've learned they can get by with less of a workforce than they were originally keeping on. They pass this information on to other corporations, and now here we are. The unemployment rate is no longer an accurate measurement of the economy.

I'm eating a granola bar and it has pretzel rods in it and I'm like, looking at a half-eaten pretzel rod and it just dawns on me that I'm eating wood.

Bought a 32 inch 1080p LED Smart Samsung tv for $297.  Did this online of course.  I am too afraid to venture into stores on Black Friday.  Also did a bunch of my shopping for family the day before Thanksgiving.  Lots of stores have 50% off sales Thanksgiving week.

Ordered a Threedy Sexul from target. It's bundled with Linkventure Time. Hopefully it's just the game + system and not some pre-installed garbage. I didn't get the Gold Edition system so

Also I spent the weekend in Chicago and may or may not have killed and ate Yoda. TEEHEE.

Amazon had a crazy deal on a 11piece copper cookware. Basically 62% off.

That's awesome, Yodes. I love copper everything. Nan and I would love to get a copper cook set, but they are expensivo! I have a bunch of copper pots and such in my garden.
Finally finished outdoor decorating, plus all my winter garden decor. I'm sore and tired, but am satisfied. Not thrilled about going back to work tomorrow, but I'll probably be doing some Cyber Monday shopping, so no big deal, really.

My brother got a new monitor and video card, and gave me his old 30" monitor, which replaces my 24" one because I'm a cheap asshole who doesn't want to fork out money for anything new.

Playing Fallout: NV on this monitor is awesome.

I want this shirt.

Now idea how to get it, though.  It's only being sold at Comiket (the website is just for reserving it...) and I'm not exactly going to Comiket.  One of these years I will...but not this year.

It also costs like $63...OK, enough of that silliness.

Geeeeee golly have I been busy. This time of year I have to make more of those creepy sculptures I occasionally post on here than I can handle. As such I have NOT had ample time to come and correspond with you fine folk.

I haven't posted in the anime journal in like 2 freakin' months... daily game journal in like 2 weeks... hell, I don't think I posted ANYTHING in a week or two. When I'm absent from here, I feel like I am somehow doing something wrong... it makes me feel sad in a strange way I can't really describe. I think this feeling is, in some sense, disordered somehow.

Anyhow I have lots to say dammit!! I just need more time to say it. And, no matter how irrelevant, its important I say it because it is here and only here that I can appropriately express all the irrelevant things that tumble around in my brain.

That is enough inter-personal philosophizing for one post.

I want this shirt.

That shirt is gorgeous but I could never pull it off personally. For a guy who has had his hair purple, red and abrasively bright for years I feel "too loud" when my attire ventures outside the realm of blue jeans and black/grey shirt. I literally own 2 weeks worth of black/grey shirts and jeans and wear the same thing almost daily.
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Hmmm, something similar might be do-able with imageboard pictures and a bit of photoshopping.
What's the name of the 'girl' ?

There was a shooting near my apartment this morning :T

On the plus side, the third copy of Layer Section I ordered arrove, and it's actually the one I wanted this time.

3DS is still pending. I reeeeally hope Zelda isn't pre-installed :(((

Is it the Zelda 3DS? If so, it's not. It comes with a card with a download code.

No, it's a normal 3DS XL that was bundled with LBW. It was some Target thing. As far as I know it's not one of the standard bundles and based on the price it looks like it's just system + game.

Right as I was saying.

That's where MOMO2 used to be, which is where the hosted Seasons Beatings up through like... 2011?

Well, I found the image on the shirt with Kongou girl and Kongou battleship behind.
Same exact image.

Just needs some sparkles and shiny text.
If you really want the shirt, I could read how T-shirt printing works and make you a photoshop file.
