  • Mood: Tired
oi vey, this was a lonnnnnnnng week, one that was sorta-fun but mostly miserable and not-fun.

Sunday: goes to see "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in a stuffy theater with TERRIBLE 3D and four obnoxious douchebags sitting a row in front of me who will not SHUT THE F*CK UP throughout the movie. This caused me to have a rather negative view of the film so i decided to hold off any reviewing of it until I see ti again under better standards and with my sibling who returned from college.

Monday: Woke up with a headache and a slight fever. Drive out to a monthly theatre gig for rehearsal, take a detour to get lunch where I meet someone who recognized me from high school and chat. Conversation gets awkward quick when he mentions after 3 years of college, he dropped out and now works at a sex shop.
Awkward. 
Goes home and trees to take it easy, no luck, the headache won't allow that.

Tuesday: Now add sore throat to the headache as well as waking up to find parents are gone. Oh they're fine, they're currently in Mexico for their 28th Wedding Anniversary (May 16th, 1987), but it would have brought me some comfort to wish them their best and say goodbye in case...nevermind, I don't want to consider that possibility.
So, back to that theatre gig, things go smoothly, but the sore throat and headache makes it unbearable to keep myself going, but I don't have a choice as after that gig is done, off to work.
And work, by the way, is preparing for higher-ups to check up on it's progress so I'm asked to put in more hours to clean both the meat department AND the Bakery department. Now normally this wouldn't be a problem but all the usual cleaning supplies have been moved or have gone missing in the back (someone tell the ICC to get off their IcyAss.)
Oh and the floors of the bakery?
Nicest description is that it resembles a Jackson Pollack painting.
And the floors make it very difficult to mop the dirt up so the process takes up more of my energy and time than needed.
I return home at midnight.

Wednesday: Apart from waking up with a stuffy nose, things start off good. :iconavatarwolfman: and I decide to catch an early showing for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (this time, no 3D and in a theater that has fewer people, much better conditions, sadly the movie wasn't too great when i really sit back and consider it.) But this joy is ruined upon returning to work where it seems to be "No Polite Manners Day" as everyone is unbelievably rude to me while I'm still trying to fight off what I'm assuming is a cold while I seem to feel a painful sore in my throat and a canker sore develop under my tongue near my teeth (which rubs up ALL THE TIME). Floors in Bakery get dirty again, so who gets to clean that?
Yep, yours truly.
The effort, along with cleaning Meat department where the sink's draining system clogs and begins to flood, keeps me working until 1 in the morning. Despite that, I manage to at least get some chat time in with :iconfinjix: until light starts to break out. 

Thursday: Just sorta "there" at that point. Honestly don't even remember anything except a runny nose that kept getting runnier, oh and I'm told, by the same guy who told me two days before to "take as long as you need to clean up" that he can't pass out anymore overtime to me. My assumptions of a cold are starting to go out the window. Only thing that kept this day from feeling like another was my sister waking up to find herself covered in bug bites. This manages to at least wake me up enough to jump to it and take the sheet soft her bed and clean up, shake out the sheets, etc. Eh? what's this that landed near me?
Fleas.
and the dog that sleeps on her bed is to go to a dog show tomorrow with her co-owner.
Whelp! A bath with doggie shampoo and it's her problem now!

Friday: This time, my face it itching like crazy, my eyes itch, everything about me is aggravating to the point I'm starting to snap at customers and employees. A customer asks if I have allergies to all the cotton falling off from the cottonwood. It's a real thought but I've never had any problems before. Nevertheless, it's enough to get me some sympathy as well as help keep even out the stress and try and survive the rest of the shift.

Saturday: First thing's first, how the hell can someone who has never had an allergy problem to pollen, dog fur or falling tree cotton start to develop allergies to them now? To the doctor's office!
Well, good news is, it's not just me, as she explains to me that I was the second person to come in today with the same problem. Not sure exactly what words she described it for but she said it seems to point to hay fever. Either way, got medication for it and managed to squeeze in time for a haircut.
It seems to work, but I'm not sure, the canker sores in my mouth just make it difficult to focus on much else.
So friggin tired man.

Just a lousy week of misery with some sunny spots of joy shining through.
Hopefully next week improves, my sister and I heard all the praise for "Mad Mad: Fury Road" so we decided "what the heck?" and we're gonna go check it out tomorrow.

I need to crash now, can't keep my eyes open any longer.

Be honest, what do you think I do better with?

Me? Well, to be frank; I'm just an 21 year old film-making student who is hoping to learn the arts of the trade so I can create and receive an Academy Award for making a film that will make you all think.

I am 21 years old and I have a few student films under my belt, very little experience but I'd be damned if I didn't tell you I am an incredibly bright person who wants to offer the world something unique and something that isn't tired and cliched.

I have Autism but I am a very high-functioning person who uses his disability as a gift even when there are days it feels like a curse.

I enjoy playing video games, watching movies with a good well-written story with great actors and good music, reading good books when I feel like it and otherwise trying to motivate myself to actually do some damn work around here.

Apart from that, I don't try to reveal too much about myself, I'm choosing to try and keep myself below the radar. Have fun with all my deviant crap! ^^

What's a Paladin?

Paladins? Well the term nowadays refers to noble and chivalrous knights and mostly incorrectly associated with King Arthur and his knights of the round table.
Though actually, the term originated from the Latin word "palatinus" which was a name given to high-ranking officials operating in the royal courts in Europe during the times of Roman control.
The modern term "paladin" was derived from an older form of the French language when describing the exploits of knights that presided in King Charlemagne's court when France was referred as "the Kingdom of the Franks." These knights were known as "The Twelve Peers" and their exploits under Charlemagne's hand, though the term "paladin" changed by the 13th century with the translations getting mixed together.

Probably not the exact answer you wanted, but it's the same idea. XP

In the extended edition of Batman Begins, there was an extra scene where Bruce goes into a strip club and crashed a bachelor party and had a good time. After the party, he bought the strip club. Instead of using a check, he used a bat credit card.

Where would be the fun in that?
I regretfully had severe writer's block this month as the sequels I had picked just didn't have much for me to work with.
But make no mistake, I will finish "Highlander II" before April is done.
