Odd Transformations 10, and a BIG bucket of posting...

My dream this morning:

I was on a reality Survivor-ish show, although it was set in a ritzy house, with a swimming pool in the back.

However, I was not Jago. Or rather, I was Jago, but I was playing a character, Eduardo. I was trying to fake being European, and not doing a very good job of it.

Not that it mattered. No matter how horrible my character of Eduardo was (not responding to the name, losing my accent, etc.), people didn't clue into the fact that I was not who I said I was.

What I SHOULD have done after having this dream at 6 in the morning was come out to my computer and flesh it out totally.

As it was, with D! on my couch these days, I decided to wait for a more convenient hour.

I'm currently in charge of the store, while Tom is on vacation.

Tyler no longer works for us. Last weekend, during my four day weekend (due to Tom working my regular shifts so he could leave on Friday), Tyler didn't show up to work.

Tom tried calling him, but never got an answer. When he did get through to Tyler, he was hung up upon.

Three days later, Tyler calls in. Too late, boy. You've been terminated.

So, we have two new part-timers. Anthony's from Capilano, and is a hard worker, although he's not that bright.

And, for some reason, he paints his eyebrows. Seriously.

He looks like a cross between a Groucho Marx without a sense of humour, and some old lady trying to reclaim her youth. It's pretty scary.

The other is Cody, who seems to be a good enough worker. He's doing evening shifts only.

I'm currently running the store, as Tom's on vacation. Which means now I can't get a hold of him for an entire week. WHEE!

On Friday, I went to an animation festival with Dev, D!, Canton, Marauder and Elimination. It was very fun stuff.

I found out that Don Hertzfeldt is one demented puppy. Of course, I have seen Rejected, his cartoon about being rejected by different media outlets, and how the cartoons spiral out of control. But Billy's Balloon was TWISTED!

Plus, seeing cartoons talk about the ultra mysterious third dimension was great.

"It's like I'm actually TOUCHING you!!!"

My favourite movies in the festival were Japan's Mt. Head and Germany's Das Rad

These movies have to be seen to be believed. Amazing stuff. It was definitely worth the eight bucks.

I turn 27 tomorrow.
