Rockstar Games released their official trailer for the upcoming game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The trailer alone is enough to get you excited. But you’ll also want to check out the site for the game. And then realize that October 26 is just over a month away!

Well, that great piece of news which was supposed to happen on Monday, and then got moved to this coming Friday…

… has been delayed. It looks like the date will be close to the second week of October now. Man… can this drag out any longer?

It’ll be OK, as long as it does indeed happen.

Just FYI, I’m still not going to reveal what the “great thing” is yet (don’t want to jinx it), but once again, there’s a hint in this entry.

37? … In a row?!?

Just being silly… Anyone know where that quote comes from? Just for shits and giggles, find the answer here, and find out lots more 37 relavancies.

Hint, hint… I’m not even supposed to BE here today!

We’ve just hit the first “normal” week at school this year, and I’m exhausted already. It’s not a physical exhaustion either. Yeah, I messed my back up last Monday (although I am doing better, thank you!). It’s just that I am mentally and emotionally drained.

These past 2-3 weeks haven’t gone as smoothly as they could have at work. And although some of it is my fault, much of it is beyond my control. But being the department head, it’s my responsibility — even when it’s not my fault — even when the slacking of other departments lend to delays in my department. It just sucks.

And between opening a remodeled kitchen that simply isn’t as functional as it should be, and between training a new manager, and between trying to not be dragged into a campus full of gossip-encircling cat-like stirrer-uppers, I’m down-right tired! It’s not like I was looking for more of a challenge.

And now I have to make it up to them? to the folks who’ve propagated much of the mess to begin with? Ugh… seems like such a fallacy… but that’s the curse of being in the service industry… “they“‘re always right, even when they aren’t. I just wish that perception wasn’t looked at as a reality. Enough about that!

So… if all goes well, then this piece of great news should be taking place in the next week. We’re closing in on a probable September 20th date by which the news would become a reality. Nope, I’m not going to spill the beans yet, but I will say that there’s another little hint in this paragraph, too! Lastly, once it’s all done, I’ll write about it. Countdown: seven days!!!

Lastly, as many of you know, I’m a big Kevin Smith fan. I have all of his movies on DVD, including An Evening with Kevin Smith, which is basically a 2 disc stage-interview, where he further explains some of his storylines, and gives some funny tales about some of his other experiences (his story about working with Prince is the absolute funniest). Well, in the last week or so, I’ve had some good Kevin Smith news!

1) Go buy Jersey Girl. or at least rent it. It’s a different type of humor than Clerks, and Jay & Silent Bob, but it has a really funny, and really sweet storyline. Ben Affleck having the “sex talk” with his 7 year old daughter, and then having it happen in reverse comes close to the ever elusive “classic” moniker of comedy.

2) Beginning filming in early 2005 will be “Clerks 2: The Passion of the Clerks”. Yep, Kev’s going back to his roots. He’s going to make this a low budget (he mentioned $250k, which although is nearly 10 times the budget of the original “Clerks” pales in comparison to most movies today) film, and I’m sure it’s going to go back to the style of humor that started it all. I have no idea on release dates, but this is one I can’t wait for!!!

Oh yeah… only two weeks until “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, 3 weeks unti “Mortal Kombat: Deception”, and 6 weeks until “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas”. Some fun’s ahead!!!

Lastly (and really this time), go rent or buy “Jersey Girl”. I’m tellin’ you!

Fingers Crossed

I may have received the absolute best news this morning. I’m not going to post what that news is yet, but once the situation has been assessed further, then my whole world is in for a great change!!! (and this news has nothing to do with what I hinted at in the Keep on Movin’ post!!!)

I should know more in the next few days, and all could potentially be put into place before the end of the month!!!

… and to think that I found out about this accidentally!!! Methinks that my going to church might be starting to pay off!!!

Oh, by the way…

There’s a big hint at what I’m talking about in the entry above!!!
