So today .. Work a 3 and a half hour shift.  And during that we had a group of Amish people come in.  They were so cute in their outfits.  : Pats them on the head. :  It took awhile for Dan to explain our menu to them.  But that isn't unexpected .. it confuses everyone the first time they come in.  Dan wanted me to come in early for my second shift but I said no .. because blah.  Bad enough I had to be there until close.  So during my 3 hour break I went and had a lovely lunch with my mom.  Then back to work.  Altogether I worked 9 and a half hours.   Ew.  Closed at 9 but I didn't get home until 11.  I hate closing shifts.  : Growl. :

We went at it like a couple of baby monkeys.  New favorite quote.

As I watch Buffy and look at bits from TJ and Amal's road trip adventure I've been contemplating my own stories.  And I really want to work on them.  But lack the motivation.  All stories are rehashed versions of other stories mushed together in different fashions.  I know that I've blatantly stolen ideas from books I've read or magazines or mangas.  But I have no idea what bits and from where they were taken from.  But they can't be original.  They came from somewhere or they are the compilation of a few ideas.  And I'm okay with that.  Never really expecting them to be published or anything.  Just for myself.  To know I can do it.  And yet .. I can't.  Merh.

I'm going to try and push myself and use a prompt table to get started.  Write drabbles or short fics.

The OLCC  training is so much better than serve safe.  It was things I already knew, and very easy.  The test took me no time at all to finish.  I think I may have been the first one done.  Or Nathan.  But at least Flynn and Renauda were there.  It was good to see them.  

And now I'm at the Friends office and have chit chatted with a few people.  Rachael is here and I had to barrow some bus money.  Seeing as I wasn't expecting for there to be no quilting class.  Oops.  And I was looking forward to seeing Susan.  And now I'm too far away from downtown to get there quick enough to storm in on my mom.  Oh wells... maybe I can get down quick enough to harass Jake.  He said he's working until close.  I've got an hour.  Nah.  I probably won't make it.  Though it's nice to see people I haven't seen in awhile like Joy and Rene.  <3

And now I'm idly typing on livejournal because Rachael is working on her expense report.  Fun times.

Thank you BBC for finally letting us non-UKers on the Torchwood website. 

I just got an e-mail from Ianto Jones.  And I will keep it in my inbox forever.  :3 

Even though it's just telling me there is a new mission on the website.

Work is really trying my patience.  On my day off I get to go to a serve safe class.  :/  An then the week after that on my day off I have to go to a stupid training session about asparagus.  ASPARAGUS!  The fuck!?!   Though knowing me I'll be eating it all the time.  I love me some asparagus.  Truly upset about two weeks in a row worth of me giving up one of my two days off.  So for the next two weeks I only get two days off total instead of four.  And probably no overtime at that.  :(

Gareth David-Lloyd's girlfriend is the same age as me. 

:/

Jealous.  :D But just decided to share.   I'm such a fangirl.

And now I'm going to watch Ianto and Jack make out.   Their love is avant-garde.

Last night was horrible.  I never want to go through that ever again.  And I can't imagine how bad it would have been without Adam there taking care of me.  I still feel gross but at least I'm not vomiting anymore.  And my headache went away too.  Now I just need a good back massage.  I'm hoping to feel good tomorrow and try to make it to quilting class.  Because I miss everyone and I really need to be creative again. 

Oh and giant pimpage to [personal profile] gallo_de_pelea because her art is wonderful and her characters are REAL.  A boy love story with people who could actually exist?  Amazing.

Somehow things just keep getting weirder and or grosser at work.  I did not need to hear H's sordid tale about her lesbian nurse giving her a rectal exam.  And you didn't either but I guess it was too much that I just had to share. 

Ant at ten in the morning this is not the kind of conversation you expect with your co-workers.  Reading a book about sex somehow inspires people to talk about sea or topics closely related.  The vibe you give off maybe?  Like subconsciously they know you've been reading what would almost be considered porn at work.  Dunno.  BUT I do know that I love the book Belle de Jour: The Diary of an Unlikely Call Girl.  Fantastic book.

Hmm. 

Had a good talk with Erin today at work.  At least I have so many great references for when I do have that new job hope.

Very tired of work so much harder than others who somehow get more money and more hours than me.  Not unnoticed by anyone except Dan I guess. 

When you tell someone you need hours in a very bad way and that you just don't want to close four nights a week but you tell them you are willing to close two or three .. you'd think that would be what they heard .. right?  Somehow Dan thinks I never want to close and so has lowered my hours because of it.  I'm so tired of stressing about rent money. 

No more stressing tonight though.  Tomorrow is my one day off this week and I need to fucking enjoy it.  YES!  Do do do.

Today was full of me being out and about.  Went to my Grandmama's house and we did arty things.  Talked to her friends.   Went to Trader Joe's and got a bunch of yummy food stuffs.  And while on the MAX a guy was making balloon animals.  He made a cat, a poodle, a parrot, and .. something else.  I wanted the poodle but my hands were too full with groceries, my purse, and my art stuff.  Sads.  Now is Buffy time.  Then bed.  Stupid one day off.  BUT I only work one day then have two days off.  I think.  I hope.

How inconvenient to have to work all day tomorrow.  I want to make a TARDIS card for Jane but I'm running out of time.  Guess I can bring all my shit with me to work and do it on my break.  Blah, stupid work.

So last night was .. interesting.

I got off work at 4ish but stayed until 4:22 to finish my peer reviews.  Load of shit.  Went over to my mom's work and talked to her clients.  Finished a book, got some knitting done, went and saw the MAX/bus collision.  The MAX was off the track and the bus was crumpled a little in half.  After mom got off work Paul came and picked us up.  We went to American Dream Pizza.  Yummy.  Chip, who has worked there as long as I can remember, took our order and when my mom was saying my order he interjects with, "Onion.  Just onion, you don't need to say cheese.  You [he points to me] haven't been here awhile but I know your order."  He's great.  Yummy pizza, yummy salad.  I love Am Dream.   We all sat together and talked and ate.  It was for my grandmama's birthday.  Chip bought my grandmama a glass of wine then a round for everyone.  Cept me.  Duh.  I was getting tired of them though.  I can only take so much drunk family before I'm ready to go.  We closed them out at Am Dream.  I got dropped off first.  I was getting ready for bed.  Was in the bath when Alex called.  He didn't have his keys.  Fucker.  And so Olga (thank goodness) came to picked me up and I locked the door.  Olga, Crystal and Lora were going to Coffee Time so I tagged along.  I was awake at that point.  We played Yahtzee and crank coffee.  Then Chris who works with Crystal at Sweet Masterpeices joined us.  We played another round of Yahtzee.  It was fun.  At twoish I was back at home.  I crashed.  And because of my late night I missed Linda's calls this morning.  ;-;

And I hate work.  But at least I only have one close next week.  Yay!  Because I hate closes.  Hate theeeem.

Would just like to say that I love the fact my uncle Mark is in the IMDB.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0898706/

Though it makes me sad that the movie he made for .. OPB or something of that sort was left off the list.  He was the main character.  And I even watched it in Health class.  That and he was the father in Wee Sing's Christmas.  Anywho.  He was in a movie with Madonna.  AND it was partially filmed on Edna's house boat.  Where I went to a Christmas party last year.  Edna is one of my grandma's friends.

Random family facts.  Brought to you by me ..
