End of the weekend

At least it's the end of the weekend for most normal people. I still have one more day to work before I get my "weekend."

Friday and Saturday I had to work 9 hours both days. Apparently our area supervisor (my boss' boss) thought it was going to be uber-busy all weekend, so she scheduled all of us for 9 hour shifts. It turned out to be pretty slow and totally not worth it.

I did more today in an 8 hour shift than I did in the 18 combined hours I worked Friday and Saturday.


Last night I conducted a little experiment.

I'd bought a DVD and when I took it home and put it in my DVD player, it wouldn't play. A brand friggin' new DVD. And a pretty brand friggin' new DVD player.

I decided to see if the DVD would play in my 4 year old PS2.

It did.

So I tried another DVD I'd been having issues with and tried playing that in my PS2.

That one worked too.

Well I guess that's what I get for buying a $30 DVD player.

Oh hell, at least I can play all my DVDs now.

blah blah blah

I had to work a 9 hour shift yesterday.

I have to do it again today.

It'd better be busier today than it was yesterday. But I'm supposed to have a highlight coming in today, so that'll be good. If she shows.

I have nothing else interesting to add...

Monday stuff

I was off work today, whereas I'm usually not.

One of the girls wanted Wednesday off because she had a bunch of family coming in for Thanksgiving and she's gotta cook all day. So I'm working her shift for her on Wednesday and she worked mine today. So I'm off today and tomorrow, working Wednesday, off again on Thursday for Thanksgiving. 3 days off in a row would have been preferable. But it's all good. I'm a team player.

BTW...Jared is at his grandmother's and said to wish our mutual readers a happy Thanksgiving. =]

Also, I have recently come to the realization that I have a major crush on this guy:

Dr. Drew Pinsky: addiction medicine specialist, host of Loveline and Celebrity Rehab.

Smart, funny, attractive...Dr. Drew almost makes me want to become a drug addict just so I can have him take care of me.

Does this mean I have less love for my beloved Stephen Colbert? Of course not! There's room in my heart for both of them.

*fangirl sigh*

I didn't sleep well.

I feel like shit.

I want to go back to bed.

I don't want to go to work.

But I'm going to work anyway.

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Fuckity fuck

I'm in a pissy mood.

I get to work this afternoon, and my manager told me her boss had been in and was fucking with people's schedules, including mine. She didn't mess with it too much, but she wants me to work noon till close on Saturdays.

That's 9 hours.

Which is not even the issue, considering I could take an hour lunch.

The issue is that, THAT'S MY WHOLE FUCKING DAY!

My manager said she'd be willing to work with me on that. I'm gonna tell her tomorrow that I'll do 1 till close. I won't do noon. No fucking way.


It was so disgustingly slow today. I did one customer.


The $5 tip I made paid for my dinner.


When I got off work I stopped my the ATM to pull out $20 so I'd have some cash on me. I don't like having no cash.

I forgot my fucking PIN number.


I'm so glad this day is over.

Another message

Early this morning I received this text message from Jared:

"Let Blog land know I am out of town for a while and to be easy on my mail box."

No, I don't know where he's going or why. I just know he'll be back in December and that he'll touch base with me when he can. So there ya go.

By the way, since it was asked, Ms. The Weenie won my contest with 17 1/2 points out of a possible 24 1/2.

I didn't count the total possible points until just now. I wish I had. I would've done something to make it an even 25 points. Oh well...

Relaying a message to Blogland

As mentioned in my blog yesterday, Jared's laptop is broken.

Because he threw a hissy fit.

The funny thing is, Shannon did the same thing to his own laptop a while back, which Jared gave him shit about.

So yes, based on that alone, I think it's freaking hilarious.

But anyway!

Between the broken laptop and having a gazillion things to do, he's not sure when he's going to be blogging again.

I'm guessing he wanted me to relay the message because you all that read my blog read his too. So there you go.

Don't forget my contest!

Like a virgin....

So I have Yahoo IM forwarding set up on my phone. But I don't use it very often.

In fact, up until today, I'd only used it once before about 3 months ago.

Jared decided to IM me on there today. Probably because I'd mentioned something to him about emailing on my phone using more of my minutes (I have prepaid).

Well I was having some issues.

Me: i just dont do yahoo on my phone often at all so I wasnt sure i was doing it right.
Jared: text virgin!
Me: its been a long ass time since i been called any kind of virgin.

Yeah. Thanks Jared. lol

Don't forget my contest! I only have one entry so far. You have until this Saturday!

You have one week to email me your answers. My email address is on my profile. I'm giving it a week because some of my readers don't get to check blogs that often, and I want everyone to get a chance.

Contest announcement! (ETA: Congrats guys!)

In honor of my 200th post, which will be my next one, I am having a contest.

And because he'll probably bitch if I don't mention it, Jared came up with the idea.
(LOL <3 ya J!)

Tomorrow I will be posting a questionnaire, the answers to which can be found throughout my blog posts. This is to see how much you've all been paying attention.

Answers will be emailed to me instead of posted in my comment section.

The person with the most questions answered correctly will receive any professional hair care holiday package of their choice.

So study up!

30 Seconds to Mars won 2 MTV Europe Awards last night.

Congrats! Love you guys!

Writer's Workshop

My 10 absolute worst pet peeves.

1) People who can't follow simple directions, or just refuse to read them and do whateverthehell they like anyway.

2) Ignorant people who are content in their ignorance.

3) Drivers who don't use turn signals. Or wait until the last minute, after they hit the brakes, to flip it on.

4) Customers who went to cosmetology school but never took their State Board exam, yet think they know more than I do.

5) People who embellish things about themselves to make them look/seem better.

6) When fast-food places only give you 2 packets of ketchup for a medium order of french fries.

7) People who immigrate to the US without bothering to learn the language first.

8) Racism, sexism, intolerance in general.

9) People who talk too loud on their cell phones in public.

10) People who don't even attempt to control their children in public.

So I had plans to hang out with Chele tonight. We haven't hung out in quite a while so I was really looking foreward to it.

So I just get a text from her.

"Raincheck on tonite. Denise (her boyfriend's ex) is coming over to spend time with the kids. Not sure how long he'll be here and if any drama unfolds, dont want u around it."

These things happen. I understand. But I'm still bummed. She's working every night pretty much the rest of the time I'm on vacation. =[

On a lighter note...
Jared mentioned in his blog today that he licks his lips a lot. Which made me think of this.

He really does. lol

Hot damn!

Bitten in the ass by Karma

Yes I believe in Karma...

or The Law Of Three.

Whichever you want to call it. Same principal.

Well, Karma is currently biting me in the ass.

I'm getting paid back for all those illegally burned CDs I have, or have burned for others.

Two of my Korn CDs have to be replaced. Self-Titled somehow got broken in half, and Untouchables skips.

Not that big of a deal since I have them both imported to my iTunes. But still...

Now I have to buy the deluxe edition of 30 Seconds To Mars' A Beautiful Lie...again.

I had the regular edition of it, but when I found the deluxe edition, I gave the regular one to Chele because she told me the copy I'd burned for her (yes, burned...I know) had started skipping.

Now the CD that came with the deluxe edition skips. Again, not a big deal since it's imported to my iTunes.


The DVD that came with it...which has all kinds of special goodies...won't play anymore.

At all.

I put it in my brand spankin' new DVD player, and it says "disc error."

I put it in the ROM drive on the computer and it does nothing. It just makes funny noises.

I've cleaned it and everything, but to no avail.

Yay Karma.

She blew her mind out in a car

I have recurring dreams of being in car accidents.

Like driving my car over a cliff.

Being hit head-on by a semi.

Hitting a tree and flying through my windshield.

I had another one last night about my brakes going out and ramming into the back of a Jeep.

Those dreams never fail to freak me out. I'm convinced that's how I'm going to die when my time comes.
