April 29, 2009

A lot of things to come!

Well I haven't been around much but things should be back to normal in the next couple of weeks. It has been a crazy month but it's finally ending. Now I can focus more on improving my collection of video games among other things. I promise there will be more updates before the end of the month. Cya

Things get worse! Working left handed!

So I was taking out the couch a couple of days ago and got mad that it wouldn't fit through the door so I punched it! I ended up punching it in the hardest part of the couch so I guess you know what's coming next.....excruciating pain! Oh man I couldn't feel my hand for the longest not only do I have to work pretty much double for most of the days but left handed since I can't seem to be able to pick up anything with my right hand. It just hurts too much! So I have had to cook left handed(not easy) do the register left handed(a little easy) and do orders and deliveries left handed as well(can't drive that well with my left hand only you know). Things just seem to get more complicated as the month advances. I have been placing use on my hand for days now and the pain won't go away and I can't afford to go to the doc right now because I have to be at work every single day even my day off which is tomorrow by the make things worse, one of the co-workers decided she wanted the day off so I had to cover her....things better turn out well before I go crazier!!

Finds 063: More Play n Trade goodness!

So I went this time around with my friend and found some neat stuff. I also got 50 percent off when I buy two used games so I got the other two for half the price. It was a great day overall especially with Earth Worn Jim for the Genesis....

Work is more stressfull than ever!

I have had a weekend and start of a week to can't I ever find any useful help anymore. I have a total of ten employees and half of them are not reliable while the others are already fired! The only people I can count on are the other manager, one cook, one cashier, and myself. That's about it! We have to come up with last second schedule changes which are never OK with everyone but sadly we have to use them. Anyways, that's about it for now I'll let you know if I hang myself or something lol!

April 18, 2009

Too much work....

Well sorry I haven't updated my blog in the last couple of days but I've been working a lot lately. Anyways, today I bombed my apartment for fleas and roaches and everything seems to be doing better although we have to do it again in two weeks to kill off any fleas left. Setting the bombs were pretty easy you know but the hard part was cleaning up after wards. I'm too tired to go into details so I'll blog about it some other time. I also got some kewl new games but I won't be posting photos of them just yet....cya later

Finds 062: Play n Trade in town!

Wow finally a play n trade store opened near my home(before I had to drive over an hour to make it there) and I couldn't be any happier. I manage to check out their games for various consoles they had. They didn't had much but I was able to get some games. Here are my finds for today and I spent a total of 15 bucks for all of these. Enjoy!


April 12, 2009

Finds 061: CIB Mega Man 3 for NES

Got this at the mail the other day. My first CIB NES Mega Man game! That's one down and five to go.


Being the boss is not easy!

Man what a day. I leave the store for a couple of hours and it flips upside down....I really need to start changing things around because the staff I was left with is not the most reliable one. There are so many things that went wrong today including a co-worker that wouldn't listen to me or the other manager. Well the only thing I can think of is fire his ass and find a replacement which I'm already working on. In the end, I'll have the last laugh har har har

April 10, 2009

Finds 060: Gameboy Lot

I got some awesome new games today! I used to have Donkey Kong Land 2 a long time ago and playing it again is awesome!! Check out the photos and leave some love!


April 09, 2009

I'm the boss now!

So I have been given the huge responsibility of taking over the restaurant I work in and be the boss for a whole month. There is so much stuff I'm responsible for but I know I can do it. The best part will probably be bossing around the co-workers hehehehe I don't know if they'll like me anymore after a month so oh well. Anyways, I also got a big race and paid vacation which I will use this coming June. I passed by tonight to check how my co-workers are doing. Things were alright but this is just the start. Well wish me luck! Everyone vow to me!! har har har

Driving a different car....

Today was an interesting day, I did a favor of driving my sister to her job except not in my car but hers! It was my first time driving a big car (I usually drive a ford focus) but this one was a big car Mitsubishi! It was pretty kewl though. At first after I dropped my sister off I started driving slow and thank god there wasn't any traffic at all so I could take my time. After a couple of blocks I got the hang of it and started driving faster and faster and before I knew it, I was home. Well I just wanted to share my experience of driving big cars for once! Oh yeah about two months ago I had to learn to drive a scooter in five minutes to help out a friend. It's a pretty long story but I did manage to drive it back to its was a lot of fun as well! har har har

The countdown will continue!

Yeah so I took a little break from counting my game collection but now it's all going to start again. I have to make some additions to the already counted Famicom collection:

334 Carts + 8 new pirate carts = 342 Carts + 3 pirate carts with no cart cases= 345 Carts

So that's it, that should be the correct number. I think I'll do the NES games now.

I'll keep you all posted!

Finds 059: Sega Additions + N64 Cart!

I went to the thrift store today and got all of these Sega genesis games at 95 cents each! I also got this N64 game for 2 dollars. It was a nice day to increase my collection. Then I got home and saw a package left in my mail and there were this lot of Game Gear games. It was a great day after all.

Cya later har har har!

April 06, 2009

No more selling on ebay

Wow it has been a bad couple of weeks for my sales. I have been selling everything at below its value.....what a horrible way to begin the month. Well I have decided I'll either sell my stuff here, forums or by friends. I'm done with ebay and their gay fees!

April 05, 2009
