dude! Where do you work?! That discount is just insane. I need to get me some clothes that don't look like I got them from Wal-Mart or Savers or Goodwill.

Polo Ralph Lauren outlet store. Regular discount is 30% off, and I can ge four dress code-approved items a month for 50% off, plus half off at full retail. It's a pretty dope gig, even if a lot of our clothes are somewhat lower quality than full retail stores.

AP: Workes another 10 hours on Saturday. 82 total hours, 20 of them being time and a half pay. Hory shet.

Dude, that's some serious discount.

It's pretty dope. They'll send us non-selling items from the full retail stores that's pretty deeply discounted. Then employees get an extra 75% off, THEN our regular 30% employee discount. Thus, $300 shirt I paid $3.78 for.

AP: This week was long as fuck, but my next check is gonna be ridiculous. 72 hours, about ten of which are time and a half.

AP: In the past month I've gotten close to $2k worth of clothes for about $50. And that doesn't even include th two $1000 suede jacket I got my sisters for $8 each. Employee discounts are the shit.

PP: Apparently I'm tossing and turning really bad at night. I wake up and my sheet is off the bed and my blankets are all turned around. I guess maybe that's how my stress is manifesting itself.

AP: Roasted lemon pepper chicken and homemade macaroni and cheese for dinner. Women ought to be lining up at my door to go out with me.

I'd be pretty pissed if I paid 14 bucks to go watch a zombie movie with a 20-minute sequence that showed exactly how soldiers were having their guns reloaded and how they slept in shifts. I'm told that the best way to watch it is to just pretend that it's just another story that would've been in the book instead of comparing it. But, I haven't watched it, so I don't know.

The thing is that the book is about a global response to a seemingly insurmountable threat, and how humanity pulled itself back from the brink of destruction almost entirely through sheer force of will, not finding a magic bullet. He'll the book even states at multiple points that there WAS no magic bullet, although not quite in those terms. There was so much in there that would have made it more than just the "search for a cure" movie it was. It was almost everything the book obviously tried not to be, and that was my problem. It's hard to watch it as another story when they changed so much.
I'm not upse about the quality of the movie itself. If it had any other title I probably would have liked it. But why make a movie based on a novel when youre gonna change everything that made the novel what it was?
But anyway, I guess I'm done ranting about it. A lot of people liked it, some didnt, I just happen to b part of the latter. It's how all movies are. But god dammit I wanted to see Yonkers.

The author himself wasn't a fan... Saying the only thing they kept from the book was the title.

Yeah I read an article that quotes him. It didn't explicitly say that he didn't like it, but he said "There are a lot of college kids who have been waiting to see the Battle of Yonkers and   I don't know if it's gonna be in there."
And it wasn't. And I was pissed. My roommate said he could feel my anger radiating off of me.
And now I'm rereading the book to get that awful taste out of my mouth.

PP: World War Z. Holy fucking shit. Fuck this movie in its rotten "miracle cure" asshole. My favorite book of all time is now my most hated movie of all time. I'm so fucking mad right now.

AP: After spending the weekend living in a house whose inhabitants only stopped smoking weed to sleep, we finally moved into our new apartment. Been here like eight hours and already met the neighbors, one of whom has a totes cute boxer puppy who's the friendliest puppy I've ever met

AP #2: Internet works, for some reason.

PP: Nervous about starting my new job on monday. :I

PP: Only schedule for 19 hours this week, but got a few on-calls for something like 21, including a 13.5 hour day Wednesday. If I work all my on-calls I'll have one day off this week, which is the week we're supposed to be moving.

PP: Working 39 hours next week. It wouldn't be a PP except for the fact that Tuesday I work 2PM-10PM, then have to work the next day from 4:00 AM-1:00 PM, then have to drive two hours home for my sister's graduation.

PP to end all PPs: I will never have sex with Natalie Dormer Sad

AP: Got a real, actual date this Friday, which is the first one I've had since two weeks after high school graduation. So almost exactly three years. But this one I can see going somewhere.

AP: An advantage to my nightmarish work schedule is that because all I do is work and sleep and eat maybe once a day, I've lost a good bit of weight. I call it my "Summer of 2010" weight loss plan, because that's how and when I went from a 36 to almost a 32 in about two months.
