{April 26, 2011}   Cartoons

So I’m still campaigning for Gotham High to get on the air. Specially after I learn that they’re coming out with a new Loony Tunes in May.

The thing looks like SHIT! They’re drawing the characters funny, they don’t sound right, Bugs and Daffy are roommates! It just doesn’t work. I use to say, the only wrong Warner Bros. ever did was Howard the Duck. But I think this will be added to the list.

But they think it’s going to be a great success. And if you say anything to the fans on their Facebook page, they flip out. I think, what they should really do it bring back new episodes of Animaniacs. Of course, with today’s shitty parents, they’ll probably have it banned in two seconds. I don’t know what’s wrong with people today. I don’t think they actually sit down and watch the shit their kids are watching. I turn on cartoons today and I just want to bash the TV in. They’re so stupid.

So, here’s the link to sign for Gotham High to be put on the air: Gotham High

Other then that. There really isn’t much else going on. Still expanding my Batman collection. I thought today, I should try and set a record! Most Batman stuff! But then I thought, where would I put it all? Maybe when I have more money.

Speaking of money, I’m well on my way to going to Toronto for Fan Expo! I have enough saved for a plane ticket! xD

I have no idea how much I’m going to need. I know it’s going to be a lot. I need a ticket, and a hotel room for 5 nights. Then food! And spending money. I wonder if I can scrape up 3,000 before I go. That would be wonderful. I don’t think I’d ever need that much, but it would be great!  And what’s left over would go towards an apartment! 

I’m also trying to get a computer next pay. I’ll have to put it on my visa, after I pay my visa off. Everything is such a money racket. I just bought a new video camera too, for Fan Expo. That’s what’s sitting on my visa right now. But next pay, that will be gone. I”m going to try to up my visa limit so I can get that computer.

It would be nice to be rich. I wish I could win the lottery or something. At least I don’t have any debt. I mean, besides what’s on my visa, and that’s only 200. Not that much. I’d have more money if I didn’t buy Quinn. She cost me 400 + dollars. She’s super cute though, so I guess that makes up for it.

When it gets closer to August, I’ll start putting my whole pay check into my savings. Besides my bills. And the vacation time I have is paid. So that’s good.

Oh! My birthday’s coming up! Not really looking forward to it. I know nothing special will happen. And I keep working myself up, thinking maybe my mom’ll surprise me. But I know she won’t. I told her the other day that I wanted a batman balloon for my birthday. She just kind of laughed. I know she won’t get it. It’s too childish. What a load of crap. Maybe if I nag at her, she might help me get the computer I want. MAYBE. Probably not. She wants me to get one, so she can have my old one. But she won’t help me pay for it at all. 

I don’t know if there’s much else to say. I have to work tomorrow and that sucks ass. But I guess you gotta work to get money. So the government can take it, then tell you, you owe them more. Bastards.

Between today and tomorrow I’d be rich.

So, there is a new client coming in to see if they want to work with Virtual Agent Services [VAS]. See, the company I work for, Kimpton, works with VAS. So I’m employed with VAS to work for Kimpton. It makes sense. Shut up, it does.

So now, VAS is trying to get American Express on board. And our “Pod” (That’s redneck for office) has been chosen to be the Showcase Pod. So that means we get awesome new upgrades and cool junk. And…. TWO-FACED LIES!

We are no longer allowed any paper on the desks. No coats at our stations, no personal items. now, I understand the logic behind these requests. I do! They don’t want employee’s stealing credit card numbers. HA! I bet some of you were thinking “Go green! Go green!” No.

So, what’s so two-faced about that? Well, If American Express wasn’t coming in, and after they leave, this rule will be fly out the window.

We got new security badges with our pictures and names on them. Well NEED to have them tomorrow. After that? Who cares?

They’ve had contractors and decorators in all frackin’ month, working on the place.

I thought about this when I was in the shower a while ago:

VAS is a stinky, smelly constipated guy. He’s sitting on the toilet, sweating, cursing, trying to squeeze a shit out. American Express is a laxative that works too slow. VAS takes it, jumps up, cleans itself up and goes to work. But… the problem isn’t taken care of. VAS just covered up the smell with Old Spice. And I have a feeling, when VAS is doing their presentations tomorrow, the American Express laxative is going to start to work, and we’re going to end up shitting ourselves.

God I love how my brain works.

 




I guess I never really had an issue with the government before, because until I turned 19, I never really needed anything. And Anything means, ID’s, Passports, Taxes. Etc.

My parents always did that stuff for me. I wasn’t old enough to drink, so I didn’t need an ID. My parents got my passport and my dad did any of my taxes.

I had to go into Passport Canada today, because I’m going on a trip for work. And I have to go to Boston. We’re going to look at Hotels and listen to presentations. So, My dad went in to bring in my passport. That was fine, except it wasn’t going to be ready in time. So he went back, and they said they can’t do express unless I am there.

I guess I kind of get that. But she had my id, my birth certificate and his. I think if there’s proof we’re related, or even if I wrote a note, she should have done it.

But whatever. I got up early today and went in.

First of all. It’s fuckin valentines day. Put up a god damn decoration. they have freakin robots working behind those desks, I swear it! Even we have a little heart on our door.

Second of all, while trying to be polite, the woman was very…. snippy. Not rude, just… annoyed. I work with people all day long, so I feel I have a right to say something about this. When someone is rude to you, you don’t take it out on the next customer. Now, I know people have bad days, and I don’t know who she was dealing with before, and I’m sure she gets a lot of stupid people. But even when I have someone on the phone, yelling at me about how I made the wrong reservation, and how I charged them twice, even though I don’t take the money, and I didn’t make that particular reservation, I don’t scream and shout at the next person.

And no, She didn’t scream or shout, but still.

So, enough about her, on the the more important matters….

Money.

So I wanted to get my passport done express. So my dad went in with it. Getting a passport costs about 87.00 Canadian. And I thought, if we pick it up, they won’t have to mail it, so I’ll get it faster. I don’t know if you know this, but, it costs money to mail something. But… Passport Canada won’t charge extra to mail it. But if you pick it up, which saves them the cost of mailing it, they charge you $10.00.

Makes sense.

So I went in today, and I told her that I needed my passport faster, because I was leaving. And she says “Proof of travel?”

Uh…. Proof? Why the hell do they need proof? All they need to know is that I need a passport! They do background checks on people before they give them a passport. At least, I hope the do. So if there was someone suspicious in my past, criminal activities or such, they would know, and wouldn’t give me a passport. I mean, that’s what they’re suppose to do.

Now that I sit back and think about it, I should have told her I was going across the border to sell cheap drugs to elderly Americans. Just to see the look on her face.

So I told her I didn’t have any proof of travel. Because I don’t. We’re going down either on a bus or in a limo. (I hope limo! but I hear it’s cramped with all of us in there.) I don’t have any plane tickets. So I had to write a statement. And when she found out I was going for work, I had to get work to fax over a letter saying that I worked for them and that I was going for work.

WHY!!?!?!!!!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!

All you need to know, lady behind the counter is that I NEED MY PASSPORT NOW!!! They’re suppose to do a background check! If I were a criminal and i was going over to anywhere for bad reasons, you’d pick it up there! What if I was just going on vacation and I was driving in my can and I didn’t have any proof!?

“Uh… I’ll bring you back the hotel receipts.”

And you know how much it costs to do express? $20.00. And you  know that if I don’t have proof of travel by the end of the day, I have to pay another $20.00. Yeah, so if I went to work, and said I needed a letter to prove I worked there, and they said no way, forget it. I don’t get my money back for express. If I went in and said, I need my cash back, I don’t need it express anymore, they say “Blow it out your ass. We’re keeping your money”

Everything in the world is just one big money racket. You know what. If one day, all the world leaders just said “Hey. Everything is free. Everything is free.” That would kind of be the end of everything.

And yes, I under stand that, if everything were free, people wouldn’t need to work. And if people didn’t work, nothing would get made. And if nothing was made, there would be nothing to get for free. But just…. sit and think about it. Just… enjoy the fact that for at least two weeks…. everything would be peaceful. Because no one would be fighting.

And some people say, “Well, Chaos would break out. People would break windows and flip cars and there would be HAVOC!!!”

And I say, “No. Because people wouldn’t need to fight for things, or be violent” Someone would be like “Check me out! I’m looting this wicked awesome 3D TV that won’t be worth anything in a year” and someone else would say “No you’re not. Because it’s free. Therefore, you’ are not stealing it.”

 

WELCOME TO MY LOGIC!!!
