Steam Sale, kind of disappointing.

Well the Steam summer sale is almost over. One more day of sales to come. Was waiting for Dark Souls 2 to come up on sale. It has not yet, and I am very doubtful it will come up tomorrow. Truly hope I am wrong in this case.

I did buy a few goodies. Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon, Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition, One Way Heroics, Shadowrun Returns, and Orcs Must Die 2. That is only 6 games, which is not much for a Steam sale.

This is all rather depressing. Hence a light post this week. If tomorrow is mind blowing you will hear more.

The Steam Summer Sale is here.

HELL YEAH!!! Cheap PC games out the ass baby.

Steam sales come but twice a year. Once in winter, around Christmas. Once is summer. Usually the summer sale is in July. This year we got it in June for no really apparent reason. Not a complaint, just saying.

It is day three of the sale. Haven't bought much so far, but there are many days still to come. Waiting for Dark Souls 2 to be featured on a day. That being the only big release I care about.

Oh, and go Team Purple.

The Interview.

Well that was... interesting. The interviewer was an overly perky former cheerleader. Would bet money that she opened her legs a few times to get into a management position. Not saying there is anything wrong with that, we all must use the advantages we have.

So I get to the store. I am told to wait over by the office chairs. Wait for ten minutes. Notice that the quality of office chairs has gone down considerably since when I first worked here. She comes out, bounce in her step, and far more energy than the situation calls for. We then start the bullshit-fest that is an interview.

"So what lead you to quit here the first time?". Well the honest answer is that I thought I had better options at the time, clearly that didn't pan out. Of course one can't say that, so instead: "I left to go back to school, it wasn't possible at the time to make the job work with the school schedule". Not a total lie, I did go back to school while not working for them, the dates might not line up perfectly, but they don't know that.

Over all I think it went well. Just need to wait and see if they call me back.

Got and interview, and I am freaking out about it. So nothing right now. After the interview, I will be back.

An old joke.

Little something different this week. A friend of mine died recently. He will be missed. He had a joke he liked, and I am going to share this joke with you this week. I hope you enjoy it.

A gorilla walks into a bar. He sits down on a stool. The gorilla signals the bartender over, who is a little surprised to see a gorilla in the bar. The gorilla points at the beer tap. The bartender says "You want a beer?". The gorilla nods. The bartender thinks for a moment, decides the gorilla doesn't know how much things cost and says "That will be 20 dollars". The gorilla pulls a 20 dollar bill out of his fur and gives it to the bartender. The gorilla sit and sips his beer, and after a few minutes signals the bartender and points at a bag of peanuts. Again the bartender assumes the gorilla doesn't know his prices and say "Sure, 20 bucks". Again the gorilla produces a 20. The gorilla sit eating and sipping. The bartender comes up after a few minutes and says "You know, we don't get many gorillas in here" to which the gorilla replies in a posh English accent "Well at these prices I am hardly surprised."
