Home. homehomehome

It was a rotten day. I would whine more but I've had worse. Novelty: I have never had to take over #16 because the cashier running it locked herself out of the car while on lunch.

At the Famous Amos. Several miles away. She still hadn't got back by the time our shift was over.

Also I took advantage of things going to 75% off, and I have some candy gift-sets in mint and dark chocolate and coffee flavors. Didn't even pay as much for all 3 as I would have for 1 at the original price. And! *drumrolls and sparkly lights*

A Foot-Spa. A beautiful heat/bubbles/massaging thing that will make my achy feet happy. ..And possibly make me squeal, because I can be a bit ticklish in the feet, but that's okay. I've wanted one of these for years, but always they're gone by the time I have any money for it, or they're too expensive in the first place, but! Not this time.

Oh! And the gingerbread house kit, which will be something I've never done yet, and bits and pieces of necessaries. I have Loot!

Meanwhile, Yuletide has not revealed yet. :( I am all ready to glomp my writer and bounce around singingly and possibly scare her/him to bits! Unless crazy suspicions prove true. But I don't knooow, and while I was content before, now I am aware of Waiting. Wild irritation and speculations ensue.

Now to get things settled and put away and commence the using of the Foot Spa. Which so deserves capitalization.

Today: Had entirely too much fun watching a show called Dirty Jobs. I needed the amusement!

Did not get enough reading/anything useful done. But I'm not (too) stressed about it, as I have Yuletide ideas, it's just all imagery and no plot. Also, the fact I have no musics fit for this fandom? Solved! By ordering a cd from Amazon, after all my hunting and hunting yielded nothing that seemed to really fit - except something specifically created for the fandom in question.

Oh for %$#& XD So glad they have those little audio clip samples.

So, I went out to get my electricity bill paid and my driver's license renewed.

Two hours later, I have paid lights, the prettiest driver's license ever, (Good. License-Photo. It'll never happen again.) and some candycane scented candles and! Andes Mocha Mints. I had no idea this even existed, and would not have had I not had to pay for my renewal and then get some more cash out to cover the electricity.

Haven't even tried one yet, but I'm sure they'll be delicious. Andes makes damn good mints! And here I was disappointed they'd done nothing new for the holiday, like last year when they had these lovely fall-flavor things. Clearly, Walmart has reached a new low in sucking and I should hunt for my candies in Walgreens. >:P

Okay. Now to start bath water running, and play KH II until such time as it's done. Then sleeping!

Tonight: Ton of laundry that needs washing, more reading and possibly trying out a few of the scenes floating in my head. Perhaps letting the characters babble now that I'm getting a feel for the voices again?

eeee, Yuletide. ^^

So, here's the deal: Really crappy day at work. Seriously. I refrain from going on and on because I did enough of that there.

So. This did not prompt me to go in to the college, as I am exhausted and cranky and slightly freaked out. It did get me looking through the catalog on the college website a little more seriously, with an eye to what I might enjoy doing in the long run - or at least, enjoy more than cashiering.

Which is not asking for much, as I expect I'd enjoy herding pigs more than cashiering.

What I'm thinking of is the Digital Media/Multimedia Technology course. With the eventual wild ambition of possibly learning to/becoming somehow involved in the process of - making games. The very idea of which makes me slightly giddy, zomg.

But, with the more immediate practical goal of getting me into a job that might start out around 26,000 - I think I'm at 18,000 roughly? Latest tax return I could find was for 2004. And. Better than cashiering.

The only thing that worries me is the maths involved. But I think there is a placement test for such. *gulp* Really though, for this? I think I could make myself study math until I forced myself onto a level that's good enough.

Now to sleep, as I can feel my concentration dissolving, to be replaced with random silly images such as a tiny game-me doing battle with giant numbers, and making a game where you play a cashier whose goal is to tick off enough customers that they become a mob and attack the store.

Another fun meme brought to you by rfreebern.

Waaah! Lacey! No matter how many times I changed it, Toothbrush! XD

The first three days of the week? Evil Manager-free. It was so nice.

Then I found out I'd be seeing her again tonight, and was of course a little upset. Sure it was going to be a bad day, you know. Which seemed to be borne out with my earrings not even having arrived yet and then losing my passenger side mirror because I'd been parking too close to the wall ever since Dad complained that I was parking too close to him. x.x

But! I spent the day with the cutest ever Eeyore plushie watching me(he has a new home now ^^) , and about an hour after my lunch I found Evil Manager had dropped a pallet on her foot. Perhaps, morally speaking, I should not be happy about this.

But I really really am. And it kept getting better. It turned out it wasn't just a pallet, it was a pallet loaded with water, and she didn't just drop it - she was operating one of the mechanical lifters without a license and screwed up. One can be coached for operating machinery without the proper license. Upon being told this by Y. in shoes, I grinned and said 'Oh, I hope she does.'

She shook her head and told me that's almost what Sig (not even his real name anyway) said, and that he added "This is what she gets for being mean to us." ...only guy in the store that would phrase it that way. I died. Ha! >:)

And at some point in there, I got to thinking about having been poked about my art, and what a good cover for my NaNo would look like? And it sent me off on a tangent that has cleared up a block I was a little worried about. Didn't want to start NaNo without figuring this out, but now I have! (Mostly ^^; ) So, JOY! *glomps the [livejournal.com profile] shusu*

And now it is Halloween in Neopets, and I have Kacheeps! The Cute! XD Now I shall just continue poking about in Neopia until I've found all the shiny! Then I can sleep. ;p

omg Neopet Peeps ahahahaha!

work cut! )

Meanwhile I'm up to #29. Now it becomes a countdown - 10 episodes left, then the movies. oi

I'm taking a music break in the less than an hour remaining until work, though.

Things accomplished this weekend:

#25 through 28 capped! Starting on 29 once I finish this entry. ^_^

Washed my car, which desperately needed it. x.x

And really that's about it. The screen capping is eating my braaaiiins. :)~

At work, well... ranties )

So. I meant to be all relaxed and happy to start on what should be the Best Weekend Ever (until something else reallyreally cool happens).

Instead I stayed at work an extra half-hour to talk to one member of management about another member of management. ...and you know, I was going to rant? Except now I find I don't want to. It's over, I handled it, Watch as I rant anyway )

Now I shall just make a manager voodoo doll delicious coffee cake like I planned to do today. And then something else to distract me, so I don't fume needlessly.

ETA: I think cooking is good stress relief for me. I feel so much better now there's coffee cake in the oven, and the kitchen is cleaned. Like I've accomplished something - even if that something is fattening breakfast food. XD

...now where's the stuff for that voodoo doll. >:P
