Neoscream's Life: Christmas Week 2014

Koromaru from Persona 3
Welcome to the Neoscream's Life post. This is a weekly post of some of the things I have done during last week and news on the great Geek Goddess, AJ.


On Monday I went to the cinema to watch the new Hobbit movie with Darren H, Richard and Roxy. Also before it me, Richard and Roxy also had dinner out beforehand at Revs. It was a great night out with my friend.

Work felt very uncomfortable during the start of the week due to the stuff that happened last week. But Christmas Eve was a real good day, I will not go into details way. OK, I could name several things that would have made the day even better, however it was still a great day. I wish that there were more days like that. Friday felt like there was still a lot of tension, but the weekend was better most of the time. At a guess I just found a way to avoid it. The only real problem on Sunday was that it felt that there was no me in team. Most people helped everyone else out than me and when I try to help people out (especially ones I class as friends) and they do not want my help (even when management tell me to help them). It was really getting annoying. I will leave it as that as if I go on I might be going into too much details and take too much time writing it.

Matis from Persona 3
I do feel a little disappointed with my co-workers on top of all this. I got all of them Christmas cards and gifts and only the Area Manager got my something. I know not all of them celebrate Christmas and I was not expecting much, but not even a single card from anyone did felt a bit hurtful (on top of a couple other things that I will not be covering).

Like normal I sent Christmas day watching TV with my parents, however I did also work on blog posts too. Like the Christmas day post, Friday's "Gaming News from Neoscream" post and this post too.

I will be changing the ending of my posts from the start of the New Year like I do every year. Here is a little history of the ending. In 2010 it was “Until next time enjoy”, in 2011 it was “Until next time, have fun”, in 2012 it was “Until next time, Mecha up”, in 2013 it was “Until next time, Armour Up” and in 2014 it is currently “Until next time, Keep Rolling”. What will it be in 2015? Excelsior! No that is the comic book God Stan Lee. Ummmm!!! I will have to do some thinking.

"AJ and the WWE"

Sadly there was no AJ the previous week and last week. She is most likely spending the holiday time with her husband CM Puck, getting him ready for UFC next week. I have a strong feeling there will be no AJ this week too.
