got the opportunity to enjoy a live concert by the talented 66-year-old
Bill Cosby at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. It was a great treat.

After the concert,
Anna and I went to eat at Carrabba's. And we had calamari for the first
time ever. It's really not that bad, surprisingly, but I'm not too big
on it. I saw what I consider to be a significant social commentary in there,
though. A small group of people -- dressed along the lines of Blink 182*
-- were dining there. Imagine that. Punks in Carrabba's. Have we really
regressed so far? It's not that big of a deal to me, mind you, but I do
tend to promote good etiquette for establishments that are making an honest
effort to be high class. Dressing like a punk is a serious faux pas, in
On the plus side,
they were leaving as we were coming in.
*Did I mention Blink
182 is overrated, much like its boyband successors (Good Charlotte among
some others), and that they suck monkeys?
theory, my job should be a little more accomodating tonight. I'm only working
from 5 till closing. 30-minute break (and possibly a 15), so it'll be a
little under 5 hours, if not right at it.

I've been feeling
a little stressed, today, for some reason. I shouldn't be, though. The
weather is far too beautiful to not feel ashamed for feeling upset.
I think what's nagged
me the most is that I had originally planned to check with Hobnob on any
job openings, but I've been too busy and it would be rude to call them
at this hour, I do believe. I'm going to have to wait until Sunday to check
up on them, because I'm going to be so damned busy until then.
I've decided if both
Hobnob and Casey's decides to be butts and turn me down, then I'm going
to head back into the pizza delivery life. Only part-time, however.
At least I'll have
3-day work weeks with Wal-Mart, effective upon the 15th of the month. If
I'm still stuck with them by then, it should be easier to cope with. I
am so sick of the Wal-Mart bullshit.
day off today has been a lazy day. A decent day, aside from a certain someone
being somewhat of a butt. I've pretty much been ready for bed since I got
up this morning.

am] - Cinco de Mayo
Anna and I went to
eat at the grand opening of some new Mexican restaurant in Hendersonville
to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, on account of El Paso's being packed. It was
pretty good, in most respects. They may show promise, but they seemed a
wee bit disorganized.
After we left the
restaurant, we got some books at the Blue Ridge Mall.
just now dawned on me that we're in the month of May now. April just kinda
flew right by, really.
I was scheduled to
work 05/04/04, but I got ill from food poisoning at pretty much the last
minute, and so I called in sick. The seriousness of the illness passed
soon after, so I spent most of my day ENJOYING MYSELF. I have never been
so thrilled to get sick in my life.
I did some shopping
with Anna, today. I got a really cool black dress shirt. I've been wanting
something like this for awhile. And I got some other stuff, too. I've been
in need of new clothes, lately.
