|New job + other stuffs

So I got a new job! I now work in the framing department at Lenz Arts. It's a pretty exciting job. I get to do projects all day and I have minimal contact with people. I do have to deal with people sometimes though. I get to help people design their frames. It's pretty fun, but also slow work. People are often kinda stupid... and don't know at all what they want, or are very wishy-washy. It's very seldom that you get intelligent people that know what they want.
I mainly just work in the back though. I like making frames, but I do tend to cut myself a lot... especially on glass. Glass is sharp! haha. Especially the sides. I now have cuts on almost all of my fingers. It sucks. I was at work yesterday putting together a white frame, and I cut myself on something, I don't even know what, and I didn't even realize it until I started getting blood everywhere.
So work is going well, but I still need a housemate! It's very frustrating trying to find someone... No one wants to move in, or they say they're going to and then bail on me.
Besides that, Friday was Devin's birthday, so I got him some cake and ice cream as well as the best cupcakes in the world from a bakery called The Buttery, took him out to dinner, took him out to see Wall-E (which is an incredible movie), and got him a mini rose bush. He liked everything and said that he had a really great birthday. That makes me happy. I really enjoy making Devin happy. I'm quite taken with him.
I'm also getting a snake now. I went to the Trop-Aquarium store today and absolutely fell in love with this corn snake that they had. I held him and he wrapped himself all around my shorts (the ones with the chains so there was a lot to grab), and was very active and sweet. Diana has a corn snake that was soo pretty and nice, and Sam just got one too that I liked a lot. I put a deposit down on the snake today, so when I get my paycheck I'm going to get him and then try to pamper him as much as possible with a nice terrarium. hehe. I'm also probably going to name him Agro, after the horse in Shadow of the Colossus, but I'd like to hear other suggestions if anyone has one.
Devin and I spent the whole day together and didn't end up going to Pride up in SF, which is ok. I kinda feel that that's not really my scene anymore... Maybe I'm growing up...
We spent the day watching Weeds and shopping. He's going to cook me dinner soon. He's gonna make some sort of bacon thing and banana stuffed french toast. I'm super excited about that! hehe. We also went on a cleaning crusade. I made room for my snake's terrarium and we cleaned up my room, set up my demon computer and heavily cleaned the kitchen. It looks soo nice now! and my room is getting pretty swanky too. I hooked up the demon computer to my new monitor too so now I just have to press a button to switch between them. It's very nice.
Devin wants to help me make my house nicer, which is very sweet of him, and also much appreciated. I need a new entertainment center and maybe a new couch again. I super want an L-shaped couch to go in my living room.
I'll post some funny work-related stories later. I have a bunch of them. There's a lot of stuff going on in the back that the management doesn't know about...
