Captain Kirk (aka Papa Smurf) treated me to lunch at Taste of Asia today. As we left, he said that his alternative reason for bringing me was so that I could carry the Barbie we were buying for the little girl my store adopted for the holidays. As we were heading to the checkout at Target, my arms were filled with Black Barbie(tm), three outfits, a tiara for the girl, a tiny makeup bag with glitter "makeup", a butterfly wand, and a stuffed poodle. I said "I see how it is, then. I get to just follow you like your little assistant and carry all your things." "Fine," he replied. "I'll carry the wand."

We then headed to the dollar store for gift bags and goodies for the employees for the second week of our Nondenominational Winter Festival. We were stopped several times by angry customers, demanding to know where things like "stencils" and "brick-a-brack" were. The last person that we informed that we did not work there puffed up as if she was about to call "bullshit" but calmed down when we both ran our fingers under our shirts where it said "OfficeMax".

I got to then spend the final hour of my shift gift wrapping the toys for the tot, and bagging the goodies for my lovelies. It amazes me, sometimes, what I get paid by the hour to do.

The roommates and I just got back from Vancouver Mall where bubble tea was had. I somehow got suckered into a massive sales pitch by a rather handsome guy with an accent and a nail buffer. Thank goodness I'm too poor to afford such silly things. I kept laughing at him as each time I tried to leave, he would suddenly come up with an even more special deal tailored just for me! Wow, as I was the final customer of the night, he was able to offer me a discount for a whole kit - started at $65 for one... then magically buy one, get one free... then only $35. Um, no. I still have a kit from the last time I got suckered - down at Clackamas Town Center by a grabby woman when I was on my way to potty.

So now I have one super duper shiny fingernail. Only one, and conveniently the middle one :)

That IS weird. The wonders of modern technology. I hadn't logged into Neopets since the Advent Calendar last year, and I find it highly annoying that you have to sit through a paid advertisement to play any game. Grar.

I also found my post about my sinus surgery, made years ago, if you wish to read it. You may not, though, as it's .. graphic ;) But if you have any questions or whatnot...

Okay, I'm an ass. I see you've already had it! That's what I get for not keeping up on my dearies!

i DIDN'T GET IT but then i think it let me have the neopoints but i didn't remember my total BEFORE clicking it and so it finally gave it to me - maybe because i reported the bug? i don't know. anyway, i forgot to post the stuff it gave me, and i'm glad YOU remembered to! thank you for the reminders :D


the only game that makes me sit through a full advertisement is the Fashion one.. the others don't, unless they changed it in the last week, which is possible...

hah
I used to bite my nails to the quick, then peel off the sides, so my nails were often infected, swollen, red, and painful. I was walking the mall one day and some woman grabbed my nail and started buffing it and I started screeching in pain and green puss started coming out the side of the nailbed, I think I scarred her for life

haha I used to shop in other stores and would get the same thing, people asking me where things are haha. I try to avoid those lotion stalls. One grabbed my hand which I thought he wanted to look in my shopping bag. Then I realized I was tricked because he wanted to have me try out lotion o_O;; They pick cute foreign guys too so it's hard to run away lol
