Learning to adjust to the new store. I'm about to head on in for my second day. First day yesterday went great. Not many complaints about the work, just some worries. But I think I can do it.

The boss seems fantastic. Very patient. Laid back. Still a bit intimidated by her for some reason.

Other members of the crew are pretty cool, too. Not very talkative, though. As it is, they don't seem to speak english very well.

Wish me luck.

As a little toy to play around with when I'm not doing something else, I've been experimenting with Paint Shop Pro 7. Since I've never actually had an advanced image editing tool like this on my own computer, it's been an interesting learning experience. I get the impression that I haven't even scratched the surface, but it's not my first time to the rodeo. I've played around with these things before, but that was back in high school when I dabbled with Photoshop.

I've made a few LJ icons, stylized around Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei's wall-of-text blatherings. The concept I had was to take the wall-of-text gag and have it poke fun at some of the shortcomings of LJ, it's users, and the internet in general. Have a look.







This last one was a collaboration between myself and Kamitra. I did the images, she did the animation.

Well, technically, it's not my FIRST DAY, per se, but it's much like that. After having been away from work for over a month, I'm returning to my job for the first time today, and it couldn't have come at a worse time. *downcast face* I spoke with one of my old mentors at Banana, and he informed me that one of the company head honchos will be visiting the store today, which will keep us busy. I'm not sure if I'm *sad face* over the news, given that it'll keep me busy.

Pros: It'll keep me busy.

Cons: It'll keep me busy.

I'd rather have an active day at work than a slow, lazy one, but I'm not sure what my energy levels will be like today.

Also, ever since earlier yesterday morning, my mind has been swimming with thoughts, but I won't talk about it right here.

Other stuff has happened, too. Tuesday I went drinking with two korean girls I met on Craigslist. Had a great time, but they haven't called me back since then, which is kinda *sad face*. They were pretty hot for their age. (they were older women)

My ex called my house, as well. Said she 'remembered my number', which is either a horseshit excuse or a backhanded comment, but given what else she said it's likely the former. She also said that she wanted to 'apologize to me'. I ended up rushing her off the phone, stating that I was leaving the house (true) and that I'm not ready for this conversation (true), and that I'll unblock her from MSN (half-true). I haven't unblocked her yet, hence 'half-true', and I'm not sure when I will. Presumably when I'm ready.

Wish me luck.

My stomach pain won't stop.

I think I should go to the emergency room.

Prilosec isn't helping anymore...

Neither is Tagamet or Tums.

I'll be going in for an EGD (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy) procedure sometime soon. The procedure will consist of sedating me, and then having me lay on my side while the endoscopy, a thin tube with a camera and a light source, is passed through my mouth and my throat to examine my esophagus, stomach and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine). According to this paper, this procedure has reduced the need of transfusions and surgery in many patients. They will be taking samples (each of which I, apparently, will be charged) to be tested for cancer.

Yeah. I'm so excited.

There are a number of complications involved with this procedure that I may need outside help with.

1) I have no idea if I'll be able to afford this on my own. I've been told that the procedure MAY be covered and that most of the drugs they will use on me MAY be covered as well. In hospital talk, this always is a no. Even with my tax return coming in sometime, I don't know if I'll be able to afford it all on my own.

2) They're gonna drug the shit out of me during the procedure, and I'm being told that there will have to be someone arranged to accompany me home after the examination. Essentially, I'll need a ride since they're not going to let me ride the bus home. If worse comes to worse, they suggest having a taxi pick me up, but it would be best if someone could pick me up and drop me off at home.

3) I have no idea where this place is. It's the Moanalua Kaiser Hospital, and I don't recall how to get there by bus or how long it takes to get there.

My stomach constantly hurts nowadays, and it doesn't look like it's going to get any better without a procedure.

I'm scared. I don't know if I can handle it all on my own, and anytime that happens I start to feel overwhelmed..

My birthday is on Thursday, October 18th. For those of you who wish to celebrate, there will be a parade in Waikiki consisting of all the women in the world who want me. They'll be carrying balloon floats of various anime and video game chicks that are hawt, in desperate attempts to capture my attention, the fools.

It should be noted that the women, as well as the floats, will be invisible and amongst traffic.

For those of you unable to attend the parade, there will be a party/get-together over the weekend. Here's the details:
