V for Vendetta

November 8, 2007

V: But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.

V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.[carves V into poster on wall]

V: The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.[giggles]V: Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

Purchases

November 8, 2007

My moolah supply is dwindling down. I’ve got two bills I need to pay on Friday as well as purchasing about 40 bucks worth of pizza for a meeting here in an hour. Add in the costs of getting to and from Midland, and from getting to Midland to going to Frankenmuth for our annual trip to Bronner’s for Christmas ornament shopping and a dinner at the Bavarian Inn. I might even take Jill for a horse drawn tour of the city. It’s a tradition my parents started for our family in 1996 when we first lived in Michigan and since they have moved on to other cities, Jill and I have been keeping the tradition alive (because it is one that is very special to me, Frankenmuth in the snow and cold at night is magical!)

Then I got a hankering to support the music industry by purchasing a semi-obscure band’s album (Tourniquet’s “Where Moth and Rust Destroy”) because it’s a great album that kept the Biloxi drivers up on the trip.

On top of that, Super Mario Galaxy comes out on Monday! I really want it (looks to be THE Wii game), but I guess it will either have to wait or be a Christmas present (hint hint Jill 😉 ).

I do have enough money to do all of these things if my paycheck makes it in by next Friday (Thursday hopefully).

Oh, and Christmas shopping. Got to do that soon as well.

Once this Monday passes, I will be a much less stressed person. I have an exam (or equivalent) in all four of my classes that day. 9am: Structures (the one I am worried about). 10am: Safety management. 2pm: Equipment management (also worried about). 3pm: Project management (need to do well, but not terribly worried about). I haven’t really stressed it but it is imperative that I do well this semester (all B’s and above, preferably A’s)

I have been searching intensely all day for jobs to go after as a career. After searching the Tech erecruiting and going through about 235 jobs that I am unqualified for, I started scouring newspapers. As I have been told by several people (Jill, Mike, my dad, among others) I might not meet the qualifications but could still get the job. While this is reassuring to some extent, the majority of these jobs are for positions that truly sound like they need 8+ years experience or degrees that I do not have. I think I found one job that would be awesome and I could do (basically a full time graphic design job for an engineering firm, using Photoshop) but it is a temp job in the end and they aren’t accepting applications anymore. The other job was for an estimator, which I could do as well, but they needed the position filled immediately. No good.

It isn’t depressing me so much as getting my brain fried on a daily basis. All of my dreams are lucid again, and I’ve gone back to grinding my teeth at night; both sure signs of underlying stress to me. Funny enough, the way to unstress myself as of late is just to sleep. Sleeping just shuts me down, so I don’t think about anything.

Guitar has also been getting me through the situation. I’m going through Iron & Wine’s stuff and learning to play songs. The only thing I have actually been able to learn is Naked As We Came (because it is the only one I have attempted to learn).

Sipping on my new favorite tea: Lapsang souchong. It’s a very smoky, amazing tea. Go grab some if you can find it.
