My surprisingly awesome day at the shops

I'm actually quite reluctant to post this, because it will take the much better post about the afterlife off the top, and people might miss it, but by saying that at the start here, I've alerted people to that, and the fact that they should read it. /subliminal messaging.

Last time I talked about a day at the shops, it was a bitch session, and while some people might like me bitching, today there is very little to bitch about. Other than that I woke up at 7am, but after all my late nights and waking up late, it might have done me some good to wake up early for once. I went to work at 10 like I occasionally do on Wednesdays, and spent pretty much all my time on the till. Not much to report from that, other than that I broke it a few times, but it's a till I'm still getting used to, I don't know where all the buttons are. I can instantly remember a game console controller, but give me more buttons and it takes a while lol. I can touch type at least, most of the time.

Anyway, while I was working, I came across a very nice little bookshelf, the first of what was to become a series of great purchases for me today. I finally have a place to store my games and books. Up until now I've had them on top of a cabinet like thing behind my bed, but it has no back, and it's not fully against the wall, so it looks messy and if anything falls off, I'm not too likely to get it back without a lot of effort lol. So yes, win for me. It was cheap too at only £10 (about 16 dollars, I know a lot of my readers are American).

After I was done working, I nipped intot he library before lunch, and requested the book they originally failed to get for me, Abhorsen, the third in the Old Kingdom series I wrote a small review on before, although I really only wrote about Sabriel, the first book. I am now reading the second one, Lirael, but I doubt the third will arrive before I'm finished lol, I'm nearly half way through already. After I've read this I'm also going to re-read Harry Potter, so I have some very good books entering my mind soon enough. Yay.

The last part of my awesomeness of the shops came with my usual shopping trip. As I was at the till waiting for it go through and what not, I noticed a small DVD stand, with cheap ass DVD's, and managed to pick up for myself a copy of X-Men Origins:Wolverine, and Batman The Dark Knight for £8 (12 dollars). Oddly enough Batman was slightly more expensive at £5 despite being older...at least I think it's older. Either way, it's a good movie, and I've watched it enough to warrant actually buying it. As for Origins, well, I love the X-Men, especially Wolverine, as my post about the X-Men proved, so even if it's a bad movie, I do get to stare at Hugh Jackman (one fine piece of man) for a while, so I'll be happy lol.

Now all I have to do is do some rearranging in my room, and get my bookshelf filled, which could take a while I admit, and I am really worn out, so we'll have to see how that goes.

Remember, this is just a boring post about my life, the one below it is one I consider much more important. It's kind of odd how sometimes I can end up stressing a little over not making a blog post every day, even though I'm about the only person I know who does that (and I follow a LOT of blogs) and sometimes I have so many things to say I have to make myself spread it out, to keep some material for later lol.

I hope you enjoy your day as much as I have enjoyed mine (so far), until next time, eat, drink, and be merry!

  1. Not every day has to be all interesting. As a matter of fact, it is more important how you feel while doing something than the actions you're actually doing. That's why something maybe boring for some and not for others.

  2. I agree with ebm93, sometimes a great day for you will be incredibly boring for others and vice versa, take the time to enjoy things that you like to do, disregard what others might have to say about it!
