Today: I woke up 4 hours after my alarm went off. I love doing that, but I forgot my dad was home. He hates it when I mash snooze for hours on end. Bussed to Chris’ house, I hate the bus. I love the weather outside though. We went for a run, it’s so hard to be motivated to run after running the 10K. I’m going to try biking and swimming too hopefully. Watched Idiocracy and...
Anonymous asked: not really a question but i just stumbled across your tumblr, you're very interesting.
At work we are now expected to have a retarded amount of product knowledge. Like we have to know every single piece of the camera inside and out. I’m talking about how the sensors are built and how it affects your picture taking. IMO customers don’t care how, they just want to know what it does for them. Also we are now expected to do cross training and have to work in the entire...
THIS IS WHAT THE INTERNET WAS MADE FOR.
I had my race today! 57:12.7!!!! That gets me 2092nd place out of 3477 for the men. So I’m pretty pleased with myself. I sprinted the last 200 metres and promptly felt like dying, but it was worth it. I had fun, but at the same time I don’t think I’m gonna do one again any time soon. I might do the Canada day 5K. Other than that, I’m very proud of myself. My goal was to...
With all the season finales happening now I’ve got nothing to do all summer. Well, thats not true. I’ve got things to do, but I’ve got no TV to watch. I want to watch a bunch of shows this summer: Fringe, The Mentalist, The Office UK, Community (again), Extras, Southland (oh my lord, I watched the first 3 of this show. SO FUCKING GOOD), and That 70s Show. OH! and I’ll...
PICTURES I would love to go here. I wish I could just travel around and take photos of everything. Especially animals in jungles and stuff. Crazy Flickr This guy is seriously good at what he does. Comb the dessert I love this movie so much. Magic Eye I have never ever ever been able to do these, and I ALMOST did this one. I could see part of it forming then i blinked and missed it. ...
I had my best run yet last night. 10K in 1 hour 2 minutes 52 seconds. I’m so happy. I really hope I can get my time under 1 hour for the big race saturday, but I’ll be happy if it’s around the same. We just gave Louise a bath. She promptly went outside and rolled in the grass. She’s all fluffy and awesome now. Louise is my dog. The kids lost again last night. I’m...
Tomorrow goes like this: Clean Garage: I will be cleaning the garage apparently. How many items in the garage are mine? 3. My bike, my hockey bag, and my baseball bag. How many of my items are out of place? 0. They are all where they are supposed to be, and completely out of the way. So now my Dad is making us all clean up his mess in the garage. BBQ Lunch: I’ve gotta head on over to...
Long Weekend! Despite the fact that it’s a long weekend I’ve not really done much. Friday night was a small celebration of Chris’ return with him, Tomek, and myself. Today I went for my run, and it was terrible. Needless to say I did not run 10K. I’m going to do it tomorrow. Today was like 5K and it was so shitty, I just was not feeling it. Tomorrow is going to be cleaning...
I watched Community, 30 Rock, and the Office this evening. I love love loved the Community finale. The others were alright. Matt Damon was good on 30 Rock. Once all that jazz was done I had to go pick up my sister at the Taylor Swift concert. I’ve never seen so many girls in the same place all dressed in plaid shirts and jeans / jean shorts. Well, I’ve never seen that many girls in one...
I’m really bored. This is just a stupid quiz. 10 THINGS/FACTS ABOUT YOU 1. I’ve got no appendix and no wisdom teeth. 2. I’ve broken my arm and dislocated my finger. 3. I play baseball. 4. I like taking pictures. 5. My favourite gatorade flavor is blue. 6. I have no idea what I’m going to be doing in 5 years. 7. My favourite colour is red. 8. I watch lots of movies. 9....
I got Prince of Persia today. SO BEAUTIFUL. Great graphics, and the gameplay is good, mind you it’s classic POP style. The movie looks like it will be really good, I’m curious how closely the game follows the movie. I’m almost done Skate 3, but I’m not ready to stop playing it lol. I am considering re-signing up for Xbox Live just for the online play. I found out today...
I woke up this morning and I felt dead. I went to work and I must’ve looked awful because a lot of people asked me if I was ok. It was really slow at work today, but somehow it was just busy enough at the wrong times. I didn’t get to take my lunch till 2:15. Now I’m home, and I have 15 minutes until I have to leave to try and impart some of my baseball knowledge into a bunch of...
Growing up is scary. I don’t know why, but I’m kinda freaking out a bit at the moment. There is no reason, I had a great day and things are going more or less good lately despite Algonquin’s attempts to break me. Becoming a grown-up just sucks, but being young sucks too. I just like it better because I’m used to it. It is familiar and comfortable. This video always cheers...
I went to Sakura Sushi on Merivale today with Jake, Jingjun, and their friends. It turns out I played baseball with this guy a few years ago. He’s a chill guy, and his girlfriend was really nice. We had so much sushi. They routinely forgot like orders so we had to re-order. That was a pain, but at least we got it eventually. I always love catching up with friends, especially ones I...
She’s easy. She wears a dress everyday, just slide it in there!– Melissa talking about Vana White.
I woke up today and went to work. When I woke up I felt awful and just numb. As I got to work the fresh air seemed to make me feel a bit better. Once I was at work the day seemed to sludge on super slowly. Also all my customers were so dumb today, not just ignorant this time. Actually stupid. Maybe I’m just not in a great mood. Once work was over my mom dropped me off at the game and she had...
Today I woke up around 9. I was going to go for a run, and then I was meeting up with Laura who’s back in town. I convinced myself I’d run when I got home and slept for another 2.5 hours. Following that I played some Skate 3, took a shower, and then bussed out to Laura’s. I met her dog who, despite her thoughts otherwise, is AWESOME. His name is Fitzgibbon and he’s super...
I didn’t get in.
We lost again. 11-1. Some of the kids don’t even care. We gave them a stern talking to after the game. It’s getting to the point where it’s just frustrating. Some of the kids work really hard and try hard but they just suck. Other kids don’t try very much and just dick around all game but they suck too. Then we have a couple of kids who are good. Apparently all our good...
Work was pretty sick. I worked with Davey Jones which was pretty sick. I had some weird customers today. One guy was just the foulest smelling guy I’ve ever had the misfortune of smelling. Another lady was insistent that we fix or replace her camera even though she was well outside her return policy because she did not want to use her manufacturer’s warranty. edit: we also had a ginger...
So I got back from my run, I wore a V-Neck, so I’ve got a super nice sun burn it’s very light though. I ran 10K, or 6.21 miles for my american followers, and I did it in the blazingly slow speed of 1:19. I would LOVE to get that time under 1 hour by the end of the month, but more realistically I’m aiming for 1:15 or 1:10 for Race Day. Is anyone else running on the National...
I was bored, so I re signed up for Last.FM. I found a few you of you I previously had friended, but please add me back if I’ve missed you, and while you’re at it here’s other places to find me online: Last.fm: jaaaamiedean Flickr: jd5ive Twitter: JamesDeanV Facebook: jaaamiedean
