It's a momentous day, and the big news comes first:

I don't work at Wal Mart anymore. It's incredibly liberating to be free. I'm also broke, so if you're hiring...I'm listening. But I finally hit the point today where it had to end. I was going to get fired on Thursday for unexcused absences I got excused 3 months ago. So I decided to bring it all back to the present and quit today.

Furthermore, there has not yet been a post since my party Friday night, which I trust you all either enjoyed or missed entirely. I've decided, in place of writing an actual "who did what" party review that would get entirely skimmed over by most, I'm going to assign selected party-attendees titles, based on their actions at my party:

J.D. Fox: Crown Prince of the Ones and Twos, Micro Machines Grand Champion
Travis Monroe: Shrubbery irrigation specialist
Ryan Haasl: Chief assistant, alcohol acquisition.
Bridget (sorry, don't know your last name): Saint in charge of making sure Travis got home.
Laura McDonald: Winner of the 2005 "I hardly stayed long enough for you to know I was here" award.

To those of you who didn't make the list of titles, I'm sorry. Try again next time.

Finally, before I get to today's fun blog game, here's a quick movie review, as written by my new alter ego, Linkoman:

On Saturday, Ryan, Tara, Laura and I rented Owning Mahowny, because I liked Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous. However, Ryan pointed out that Lester Bangs is the only Phillip Seymour Hoffman character that isn't really Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I didn't like the movie much.

Finally, here's one of those fun games with the questions no one really ever asks you, but you post the info anyway on the hopes someone will want to know.
