I keep going... and going... and going...

this is crazy... my net income at Bungie has now surpassed my gross income in Michigan!!! this is exciting.... I mean... I work a ton of hours...and it seems like every week they come up with longer shifts for us... as of now it looks like I'm working 72 hours next week... (starting tomorrow)... it just seems like every week my paycheck gets bigger... I love it... but hate not having a life... but I love it anyway.

but I guess I'll need all the money I can get... I don't know how much longer I'll have luck with the Astro... it's still running fine... but it just passed 191,000 miles... and the windows are starting to act up a little... but it runs!

I don't know what kind of car I'll be able to afford, but I'm sure I will figure something out. I guess the next thing I need to keep in mind is that my last check from Bungie might be coming as soon as the 23rd of this month, and unlike some of my friends who were able to go v- (vendor... I'm an a- for umm... who knows... it means I have to take a 100 day break from MS every 365 days I work as MS so they can keep me as temporary... a v- stays until the end of the project.)...

other than that... Jaani and I have the house to ourselves this weekend. which kinda sucks for Jaani... he has to stay all by himself... all alone... all day while I'm at work tomorrow... he only had to stay alone for 2 1/2 hours today... and sunday Ev said she will be home by mid day...

Official word says that Ev starts work on Monday. At around 8:30AM... which works out perfect for me to drop her off... I need to be passing through Renton at about that time in order to get my breakfast on my way to work... seeing how I don't take the bus anymore... I guess I would make her take the bus if I didn't drive right past her work every day... I can actually read the sign on the building as I drive by... In the end it means I have to leave about five or ten minutes earlier...

(to the tune of Montey Python's lumberjack song...)
so...
I'm a game tester and I'm OK,
I sleep sometimes and I work all day,
I go to work,
I type a lot,
I like to break halo,
and if I could have my way,
we'd never make release...

well, anyway... that's the jist of how my life is not changing at the same time that it is changing constantly... so, I guess I'll say goodnight! I need to get some sleep...

Later,
