Hey, That's Not My Baby
What a fun weekend it’s been. I ended up working on Sunday because my backup needed the day off. I went in at about quarter to two in the morning and I didn’t get out of there until a little after seven. The payoff of course is that I’m going to be off this coming Friday. That’s right, three day weekend baby… say it with me now. Today I went into work at 4am, and then I was home before noon, damn that was sweet. The reason I’ve decided to start going in so early on Monday’s is we get a shitload of TPR’s on that day. Basically anything that was on ad last week will still have some allowance on it and we put it at a small discount, so I hang all of those signs which is usually close to 200, then I hang all the new ones that started that week, which is usually close to 300. Although I do know the store pretty well, hanging 500 signs is still a bit of a task. Actually hanging them isn’t the problem, I have to print them first, then I have to sort them by aisle and then I get to hang them up. I think the sorting part takes up the majority of my time especially now since we have so many things that have changed places. Once I get my way and I’m able to change aisle locations easier in the computer, I will have all my aisles set and I will just print in order of the aisles and I’ll be set.
Well, I’ve been plugging away at getting my website to look the way I want it. I think this look is what I’m going for. There are a few elements in the Flash Banner that I have to tweak, but what’s there will work for now. Every time I look at it I can honestly say it doesn’t look like anything I’ve ever done before, and that’s a good thing. The only problem I’ve seen so far is that in Internet Explorer my site looks wonderful, but in Netscape it looks like horseshit. That is one of the things that has always pissed me off about doing sites, the fact that the browsers never do the same thing. Look fuckers, I think it’s high time that you people worked together and make the browsers so they are able to do the same things across the board. I don’t care if there are 30 different companies making browsers, as long as they all jive and interpret the coding the same. Anyway, once my main site is finished I’m either going to redo the 3rd Bass site or Lisa’s site; well I’m going to do both of them, I just don’t know which one I’m going to do first. I’ve got a few good ideas for both sites as well and I’m hoping when I get done they’ll both look hella cool. In 3rd Bass news, I see that Serch is planning on releasing some unreleased 3rd Bass tracks and I hope him seeing the website and realizing that they still have a large fan base had something to do with that.
Speaking of music related news, I saw that Chris Cagle, who is apparently some sort of country music star, and his girlfriend recently had a baby. Well, once the baby was born he found out that it really wasn’t his baby. I’m just curious, because it sounded like she just had it not too long ago, but how did he know it wasn’t his? I wonder if it came out a different color or something. I guess on the bright side, he now has new material to write some more country music with. Nothing makes a good country tune more than your old lady cheating on you with the pizza boy and getting knocked up by him. I know some of his fans feel bad for him, but hey, it comes with the territory. If you’re going to live that country singer lifestyle, then you’ve got to be prepared for things like this. Hell, he could lose his farm next, or maybe develop a drinking habit, or any other medication worthy depressing thing that country music stars sing about. Just think, if he had only been a rap star, he could have just shot the bitch.
