So I made it 2 days before failing miserably at my sad attempt to keep up with those blog memes. Oops.

It's been a long few weeks at work, and even though I've been going to bed around 9pm most nights, I'm still exhausted. Thankfully I think I have both schedules worked out so that I won't have to work at more than one job per day, with the exception of an occasional Tuesday or Saturday. Currently, I'm sitting at my desk at the dealership wishing I was still in bed. Due to the absolutely fantastic communication skills everyone around here possesses, I didn't know I had to be here today until I got a frantic call because our part-time cashier didn't have keys or access to anything she "needed" to get going for the day. Either our office manager forgot to give her the extra keys or she forgot to tell me that I had to be here, but either way I was not too thrilled to start out my morning to the chaos of "WHERE ARE YOU I DON'T HAVE KEYS FOR THE CASH DRAWER OR ACCESS TO THE SAFE FOR THE DEPOSIT MONEY AND I CAN'T GET AHOLD OF DANIELLE AND TY DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING AND WHERE ARE YOU IT'S 9:04AM I THOUGHT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE HERE AT 9:00AM WHERE ARE YOU I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO."

I'm being a bit defiant today because it's Saturday and I was supposed to have the day off but I'm here, and service is ridiculously slow. So I have ESPN on the TV in the lounge and I'm telling customers the remote doesn't work when they complain about watching sports, I'm on Twitter, Blogger, and Tumblr when I'm not supposed to use social networking sites for anything, and I'm leaving to get lunch in about 20 minutes when I'm not supposed to leave at all on Saturdays. Guess who cares today? Not me. All I have to do is remember to clear my browser history before I leave haha.

Anyway. I'm going to try either later tonight when I get home or tomorrow if I don't work at AE to get things lined up for these meme things so I can actually do them without missing a few days again. Or weeks. Whatever.

Alsooooooo I might FINALLY be getting an iPhone =D! My parents are switching service providers and if they got with ATT then I'm going to get it. If they go to Verizion, I might still get one and take another plunge into adulthood and have my own cell phone bill. *gasp* We'll see. Either way, I need a new phone because the screen on mine is horribly cracked. If you follow me on DailyBooth at all you'll have already seen a picture of it, but the picture doesn't do it justice. It's cracked to the point that it takes me about 5 minutes to read a text message because I keep having to switch layouts and piece words together. It's rather obnoxious.

Well I think that's it for my whining and complaining today. I'm hopefully going shopping with my mom after work, and when I get home from that I'll try to piece things together and get posts lined up for the memes and then I can actually do those. Ha. For now it's back to trying to beat my solitaire high score and getting hit on by creepy old men that think they're hilarious. My life is awesome.

Day two: Your favorite movie

I always hate the "favorite" questions. I feel like they're asking me to make a definite choice that I can't go back on. Anyways. Movies. I hate making a decision for this, so I'm going to cheat and narrow it down into favorites by categories. Ha.

Favorite Musical: Mamma Mia
Favorite Chick Flick/Romantic Comedy: Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist
Favorite Action Movie: The Dark Knight
Favorite Disney Movie: Beauty and the Beast

And we won't talk about the fact that that list was 10 categories but I forced myself to cut it down to 4. Oh my life.

I really want to try to watch more movies this year. If you guys have any suggestions for what I should watch, leave me a comment and let me know!

Let's try this again, shall we?

I'm going to make an attempt to complete two blogging memes at the same time. Luckily for me, both entries for the first day are the same. One of the memes is completely music related, and I'm going to be posting those entries on my Tumblr in addition to the regular blog-like entries for the second meme which I'll be posting here. I'll try to link to my Tumblr post every day as well,

Day 1: Your favorite song.

Without a question, it's Cavanaugh Park by Something Corporate. It has been since the first time I heard the song 7 years ago, and it will be for quite a long time. Click here for a video of the song, if you'd like to listen to it.

If you'd like to do either of these at any point, or want to see what's coming up during the next month, I posted a list for the music one on my tumblr and the list for this one is as follows:
