workity work work work...

i spose that i have SOME news to share since i haven't been around ;) note one is that i may be getting a slight promotion at work... our dearest muriel may be quitting, and although she's been a permanent fixture for... 7 years? something like that... i definitely wish her the best... and i want her job ;) so i went in to talk to Supervisor Roxana, and said "soooooo, i hear muriel may be getting another job?" and she replied "heh. funny that you mention it, because Rick says he thinks he would really like you to take her place."


i don't know or really care - too much - if it provides more money. what is REALLY wonderful is that i would basically sit in the dungeon (receiving) and deal with defects and shipments, instead of customers. wah hoo! no more smelly people. well, at least none that aren't getting paid to be there in one form or anther.

went to work yesterday, feeling... almost pretty :) for two days i hath decked myself out in full make up, complete with tons of eyeliner and dark lipstick and pale foundation. i didn't expect people to be so... shocked! i had guys be nice to me at work that normally don't give me the time of day... so i rolled my eyes and giggled like a chit and let them do work for me ;) serves them right. if they don't want to be cool to me in the fresh wokened up face, it's the least they can do ;)

ended up in the back, unloading a truck.

now. i used to help unload trucks and throw freight all the time when i worked at michaels. it's WAY different at office max.

for one thing, art supplies weigh slightly different than oh...... DESKS. cases of paper. gigantic chairs-in-boxes.

for another thing, the semi backs up to the back door and sits on an incline. this incline makes things QUITE interesting when you stick a pallet jack under a pallet and raise up the 6 1/2 feet of cases of paper, bookcases, and other random 438920837 lb merchandise.

it basically results in aubrey slipping backwards at an alarming rate, a look of sheer terror on her face, and the gigantic pallet of schtuff rumbling after. i believe there was squeeling involved, too. not quite as terrifying when i got to take the little mini forklift thingie in there to get pallets off the top of other pallets, and having THAT roll backwards and threaten to run me over. for some reason, heavy machinery scares me WAY worse than a trillion tons of boxes.

all in all, it was interesting. the night FLEW by, and i didnt' have to deal with customers once. granted, igor and i had neither one of us unloaded a truck before, and it was much like a gigantic puzzle there for us to solve. especially since we didn't have half the equipment that we desperately needed to accomplish this. it finally resulted in the truck driver poking his head in and say that we were taking ENTIRELY too long, and can he pretty please help?!?

i also HURT today. i need a hot tub and a massage. STAT!

for some reason, too, yesterday seemed like thee day for everyone to pester me about marriage (mayhaps this led to my wedding dream?) and why haven't i been married, and certainly i've been engaged? and what about kids? everyone my age that they know has several! i grunted and said that i have a two month curse, and if i ever find a guy that doesn't get sick of me after two months and that i don't want to strangle after the same amount of time, we just may have a winner. as for children? highly allergic.

customers were always my weakness. cuz i don't like dealing with them. ;)

i go back and forth on the matter. if muriel ever ends up leaving, and if i ever get her position, then i would be happy, because she has to deal with customers SOMETIMES, but not CONSTANTLY. that would so rock.

and why does 'chasing rabbits' ring some kind of massive giggly bell for me today?

wow you are too funny about the whole mirrage thingy, you know there is a question I'd like to ask but I can't because you never ask that of a lady.

Anywho *tries to remeber toughts - darn you brain get with it!*Oh yeah makeup!

I prefer a fresh face, I think that somtimes makeup gets in the way. Either I like people for their looks or I don't care. Although I must say the short hair picture from the post where you talk about you hair is quite the picture!

Two month curse that is too funny as well, what usually happens, is it just like a slow ticking to an explosion or just one day boom no more happy cupple?

ha ha, you've totally piqued my interest regarding what you were going to ask me!

as far as makeup goes, when i actually DO wear it, it's usually just a bit of eyeliner and shadow. i generally can't be bothered with the whole rigamarole.

as far as the two month curse goes... it really depends. things just sort of.. happen around that time frame that brings thing to an end.

my last boyfriend left me for his ex girlfriend, after a vacation in new orleans
the boyfriend before that left me after a vacation in new orleans
the boyfriend before that... *thinks* i think i had a massive dry spell, because before that, the boyfriend left me for his ex girlfriend.

hrm. okay, maybe 2 months is the time frame it takes for them to realize that they'd rather be with the woman they had left instead of me? ouch.

Hee hee hee, I don't remeber what I was going to ask, there are only two subjects that I don't really just come right out and ask, ok three :P. One of em is completely not relevent to this situation, the other needs to be done in person ;) and the last is just your age which I now know... 25 :P
Jan. 19th, 2006 10:54 pm (UTC)
ha ha, you flatter. 25 ;)...

and rereading what i had posted about the last 3 reasons that ex's have left me, it's no wonder yet again why i'm so insecure whenever a boy i like or am even slightly involved with is becoming chatty with ex girlfriends.

i USED to not be a jealous person. but i'm wondering if my lack of jealousy was just my putting up blinders to very obvious signs?

Its possible but at the same time you've gotta remember that the right key fits into the right lock. Don't go too hard second guessing yourself or you will always do so and probably miss out on somethings. If you really think its something that could have been done better, not different try a bit to change it, but the person for you will probably avoid these things or give you reasons not to worry.

thanks, stu. that is totally what i needed to hear. in retrospect, i don't know what even drew me to those people to begin with, but there you have it.

You know thats a very good question and somtimes I think we ourselves don't know what exactly draws us to a person. At the same time I just go ta though about abuse cycles and wonder if knowladge about them would help break them. All that is to say I wonder if we knew that something in our past would give us predispositions to certain individuals that would be helpful to us in the future, would that help us in making better choces?

Sorry for rambling.

haha, I read this after I posted that comment about your marriage dream maybe being about a job. What are your greatest passions? Does this new job fulfill them in any way?
Jul. 8th, 2005 07:22 pm (UTC)
hee hee greatest passions? hrm. when it comes to work, i like having a happy even amount of working hard to do stuff behind the scenes that makes everything easier for other people (i.e. freight), and head on dealing with customers and working the front line.

as far as OTHER passions goes... i was thinking of asking my friend drew to let me know if starbucks is hiring so that i can do something else. i can multitask like a fiend, so i know i would be good.. eventually. and i would get free coffee every week.

this will be until i can find something else in something that REALLY moves me, like music. but what kind of jobs are there logically out there for someone like me, who is only mediocre at performing, and has no education backing?
Jul. 20th, 2005 09:28 pm (UTC)
not greatest passions when it comes to work, but just your greatest passions in life. What makes you feel really accomplished and satisfied? What stirs you?

i like making a simple impact on a persons' DAY. even if it's a small one, if it's something that will make them feel that their day really isn't so bad. i like imposing optomism on others.

but yet, i really like having a bit of solitude, as well. i'm a very solitary person, so i like to recoup in quiet. like right now? sitting here completely by myself, drinking tea and catching up on old comments.

sitting and playing my guitar, when the right motivation hits me, is such a spiritual joy, as well.

walking outside and feeling the wind on my cheek and seeing how wind effects other things, i.e. trees, hair, leaves, garbage.

music in all its depths and glory.

i feel accomplished finishing a good book.

although it's hard to get started, how things look after i've completely organized/cleaned them.

the joy of a purring cat on my lap, when it almost looks as if she's smiling in her sleep.

recognition of a job well done.

I enjoyed reading that comment. ;-) 'imposing optimism on others,' indeed! ;-D

I can see why you'd like to be in the medical field -- I can just see you going from room to room, straightening people's beds and bringing them food, brightening their life with your cheery presence. Simple, but oh-so-desperately-needed. ♥

a couple of elderly women were pushing a cart with a chair into it into the store the other day; i met them in the parking lot and pushed it in for them. i did what i could to help them, and they were just overwhelmingly ecstatic that i was so helpful, and they said that they knew i would make an excellent nurse :) which i still will be one day, i just HAVE to pursue my passion first!
