I'm In One Dilly Of A Pickle Here, Guys!!

Greetings! It’s the Andy-San here with some questions.

Today at work, I found a $20 bill on the ground. It wasn’t in any of the self-checkouts and there were no customers around it. I picked it up and debated on whether I should put it in the coupon slot like I do for all the other money I find in the self-checkouts. Usually, I just find quarters or a $1 bill, but this is the first time in my life that I found a $20 lying on the ground. I held onto it and took it home with me. I feel so bad for doing that, but I came to this conclusion:

On one hand, when there’s change left behind, I’m supposed to put it either by my drawer or in a spot where customers won’t find it. On the other hand, the $20 bill in question wasn’t in the self-checkout machine, I didn’t see the customer drop the bill, and there was no one near it when I found it.

On one hand, I would be benefiting the most from the $20 bill because I only have one source of income compared to Wal-Mart’s numerous sources. I would probably spend it at Wal-Mart anyway so they’re not losing money. On the other hand, it’s still money that’s left behind.

I came to the conclusion that I should keep the $20 bill unless Wal-Mart asks for it since they most likely caught me on camera picking it up off the ground. I would be supporting the U.S. economy by buying something and I would be supporting businesses as well. Did I make the right decision? Please leave me a comment to tell me what you think about it.

Also, when I got off work today, I saw in the Electronics section a new Dell XPS 420. It has the same quad-core processor as the one computer that I want and it comes with a keyboard, mouse, 19 in. flatscreen monitor, Windows Vista Home Premium, and possibly speakers. All of this is for around $1,000. I could use my discount to take it down to $900, so for essentially $100 more than the other computer, I can get a monitor, mouse, keyboard, an OS, and possibly speakers. The only drawbacks is that it has 1 GB less RAM and I think the hard drive might be smaller. Other than that, it seems like a friggin’ sw33t deal!! What do you guys think?

In other news, my stepdad and I kicked out the jams today with Beat It. We heard it on the radio (the Fall-Out-Boy cover, which is pretty bitchin’, but not as good as the original) and decided to give it a whirl. I knew the main riff but I didn’t know the verse riffs and the bridge, so I look up the tab for it and away we went. Our timing was pretty crappy, but hey, it’s our first crack at the song so it’s all good. Also, I never realized how mixed-down the guitar parts are in Beat It. I could hear Michael and the drums, but the guitar was pretty quiet so it was kinda hard to keep time.

Well, I’m gonna get goin’. Good-night!

Here's An Update

It’s right here. Hey guys, it’s the Andy-San hurr with, you guessed it, an update.

I’ve updated my History page a bit so you can check that out if you want.

In other news, Ben’s band changed their name yet again to Eights On Aces. I wonder how long this name will stick lol? Until they play another show again and it’s recorded, I won’t change the tags and st00f on their other video. They’ve been working on some new stuff and I can’t wait to hear them play again! Let’s just hope that Ben won’t bust a string without a spare again lol.

Well, that’s it for me today. I’ve got to get to bed since I have work wayyy early in the morning (like 7am early). Nighty-night!

P.S: I noticed that I only got 7 views yesterday. I feel sad…

There's A Dick On My Truck, Isn't There?

Hello, it’s the Andy-San here with a sore shoulder.

I had what seemed like a quick shift today. It was getting near the end of my shift and I was gonna leave a bit early because there were no customers in sight and I was in between 2 other cashiers. One of them said that I had to wait until 5 minutes to the end of my shift to leave instead of 10 like I usually do. The managers have the cashiers do this so that they can prepare to close down their registers and take back items and recycle hangers and bags. Apparently, Wal-Mart hates it when you work past your scheduled shift; messes with the scheduling computer or something. No big deal to me since I get a good amount of hours. Anyway, this particular cashier, whose name I forget, said that it was discussed at the previous cashier’s meeting that cashiers are leaving too early and that it was up on the dry-erase board. Determined to prove her wrong, I looked at all of the dry-erase boards I could find and do you know how many had that written on them? A big goose egg! I found nothing about it on any of the dry-erase boards or on any of the cork boards or anywhere else for that matter!! So after I clocked out, I bought a new magazine by Guitar World Acoustic called Acoustic Rock. I haven’t looked at it yet, but it seems interesting. I get out to my truck, and I see that someone sprayed a dick on my door with shaving cream. Jeez… I cleaned that dick off with 2 buckets of water (wow, that didn’t sound gay at all lol).

In other news, I ran into Travis today when I was on break. He said that he’s got his newest project in motion. It has him on vocals and lead guitar, Kyle on drums, Chip on bass, and get this: Benjamin on rhythm guitar. No it’s not Ben Ben, but some other guy named Ben. And here Travis was so adamant about having only one guitarist in the band lol! But it does sound like a killer lineup and I’ll definitely check them out when they start performing live. Also, I learned part of a song that Marty Friedman does on Rock Fujiyama episode 12 called Mizuiro no Ame that was originally by Junko Yagami. Check out the clip of him playing it right here:

Here’s the clip of the original song:

It sounds awesome when played on guitar. And he mixed it with The Doobie Bros’ Long Train Runnin’. Now you know why Marty’s my all-time favorite guitarist, with Paul Gilbert coming at a very close second. Those bastards are crazy!!!1

Well, I’m gonna hit the shower since my shoulder is killing me from lifting some weights…to scan them lol! Good-Night!

P.S: I got 3,492 views yesterday! Awesome!! Also, I’ll be updating my History page soon!

A History…of TheAndySan

What, no redunk-ya-mama-liss exclamation points in the title?!!1 There ya go! Hey guys, it’s the Andy-San hurr with an update.

I put up some st00f in The History of TheAndySan page, so be sure to check it out! Like I said before, I’ll be constantly adding to it and reorganizing it until it’s current.

That’s about all I wanted to say for the moment so g’night!

Today's Episode: Happy Mommy Day!!!…or…Change Is Good!!!

Good afternoon, it’s the Andy-San hurr with some news.

I’m sure some of you are a little tired of reading about my post count (liek zOMG, it’s ovAr two-hundreeeed!!1), so I’ve decided to post about something else. Something like pooping with your friends while listening to the soothing, totally original music of Crystal Castles. Not your cup of tea? Yeah, mine neither cuz I’m like Superman; I poop alone.

Anyhoo, I’ve put up some pages for my future sections of my blog. Answer The 60-Cycle Bum will be a column where I ask a guitar-related question and you my viewers answer it. Most of the time I won’t know the answer, but hey, that’s why they call me The 60-Cycle Bum.

My Stories is pretty self-explanatory. I’ll put up my manga ideas. I’ll try to get some illistrations of the manga instead of just the transcript. You see, I’m not that good at drawing manga, but I’m excellent at thinking of ideas for series that I wanna read about and eventually see realized as actual anime series. I’ll see if I can copyright register my ideas so I don’t get robbed blind lol. I also want to submit something to TOKYOPOP’s Rising Stars of Manga in the future.

The History of TheAndySan, besides being fairly self-descriptive, is more than just an About Me page. It’s where I will list my history; where I came from, where I’ve been, what I’ve seen, etc. It’s a huge undertaking, but I feel that I owe you guys some backstory. Of course, to protect my identity, I won’t give away addresses or complete names of people.

Well, I’m gonna get ready for work so I’ll see you guys later. Bye now!

Happy Mother’s Day from:

Sittin' Pretty at 2,132 Daily Views!!

Good evening, it’s the Andy-San here waiting in my Al Bundies (that’s my underwear. Hello ladies!!) for my laundry to get clean & dry. Even my backup pants are in there, so lameness.

I’ve received not only my highest amount of daily views at 2,132, but a lot of comments as well. If you guys have a question or a comment, please feel free to do so. Just try not to make comments like, “ur blog sux a$$!! I h0pe u diee!!”, that’s all I ask. It’s not that I can’t take criticism, far from it. It’s just annoying is all. If you think my blog sux a$$, then tell me in a constructive manner. Just remember, use your words; they’re there for a reason.

Some of you have suggested that I put up more pictures of myself among other things to, literally, illustrate what I’m talking about. I’m definitely down with putting up moAr pics of me cuz I do love me lol! However, my camera’s being a tool and not the kind that’s usable. I’ll get back to this subject here in a bit.

In one of my comments, Groverfan suggested that I do blogs or have a section of my daily blog for my personal history. I think that this is a grate idea! I need to get it organized and it’ll be up and running. Look forward to it!

Work today was boring again. They stuck me on paystation, which is the area that runs the self-checkouts. During the weekend, the whole place is packed and I’m kept busy. During the week, however, it’s dead as hell with occasional spirts of customers. You also get a lot of people who don’t know how to work the self-checkout and do stupid things. Things like trying to scan big-ass boxes, 24-packs of water, and flowers (my arch-nemesis at Wally World. Grr…).

There’s also a very large amount of people who buy certain items that require me to ID them that are not booze and/or smokes. Items like super glue, spray paint, paint balls, Headshot energy shots, diet pills, male enhancement pills (I had two incidents, both were women buying the shit and boy were they embarrassed when I carded them!!), paint thinners, Tylenol, the list just goes on! I do agree with Wal-Mart in that the abuse of these products should be handled within the best of our ability. However, I think that it’s also our responsibility to properly inform the customers that they will need to present their ID if they want to buy these products. We do it for booze and smokes so why not everything else we card for? I put that in the suggestion box and if my suggestion gets picked as the best, I get an extra $25 on my paycheck! Go me!!

I also got my mom an early Mother’s Day present: 2 boxes of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda for the fridge and freezer. Sure it’s not jewelry or flowers or a card, but I totally thought of her when I saw them. Happy Early Mother’s Day, Mom! Due to the accident, she gets that day off so I guess the accident’s not all bad.

Well, I’m gonna put my wash in the dryer (good-night, ladies!!) so I’ll see ya when I look at ya! ‘Night!

P.S: Remember when I said I’ll get back to the subject of pics and vlogs? Well, I’ll be getting my Paypal account squared away later on today and I’ll put up a donation button. So if anyone would like to donate, you’re more than welcome to (liek zOMG, theandysan has become an Internets panhandler!!!1). The donation button won’t go away when I get a camera, but getting the camera via my blog would be most interesting. Most interesting indeed.
