short changed... feel strange....

long day.

hoowee, doggay, it was a long day.

not overly BAD of a long day, but eesh.

i could not for the life of me sleep last night. i FINALLY fell asleep at 630, my alarm going off at 730. well, i take that back, it's SUPPOSED to go off, but i blessedly woke up naturally around 750 and wondered why it WASN'T going off, when i realized the volume was completely down. huh.

*throws Bacci the ball to go fetch since she was dropping massive hints to*

tons of inventory preparation. it was quite like i had left something important at home. my pants? well, yes, but that's because i wore my skirt instead. keys? no, they're in my coat pocket. brain? ooooh, crap. i was so out of it i had to ask not one, but TWO managers to come over and help me do a return.... for $10.... that was pretty durned cut and dry. merchandise in tact? check. within return time limits? check. i ran into things all day, the best of which i was NOT looking where i was going and was heading out the front door.. right as it broke, slamming my right shoulder into it and sending me spinning, literally.

i think betty will laff and laff for a week.

for some reason, wearing my skirt to work instead of pants makes me want to engage in lots of heavy lifting. not lisping, as i originally typed. i'm sure heavy lisping would get annoying fairly quickly over the radios at work. bad enough everyone had to listen to my kabob-speach, which basically consists of lots of 'uhs', 'ums', the occasional clicks, and heavy moaning. not even erotic moaning, but a moaning which changes pitch every second as i try to scramble my brain back together and remember what it was i was asking for in the first place.

i was nice enough to stay until closing, putting in a nice 12 hour day on 1 hour sleep. i kept wiping my mouth all day, for fear some spittle had freed itself on one side.

and with my being so out of it, yanno what they put me to work on?

ink pens.

not just any ink pens, but the PEN CASE, meaning all the expensive, gaudy pens that haven't been organized since 1943, give or take a month or two. very mind numbing, which is what i SO didn't need.

my hair has slightly grown some more, to where i can make slightly more prominent ponytails in my hair.

unfortunately, because it's coppery, everyone calls me pipi longstocking. GENIOUS! one called me annie (tony did), which caused me to roar loudly "I DO NOT HAVE AN AFROOOO!" as i shook my fist in the air in mock rage. aaaah, the looks i get from customers.

anyhoo, if i slump in my chair any more, methinks i'll fall on the floor.

night!

ha ha, yes, us retail workers definitely are able to sympathize with each other, no?

mmm, sleep. i love having 3 days off, and although i'm angry that my back is KILLING me during it, i would rather be at home and (hopefully) healing instead of having to either go to work and deal with it, or miss work all together.

where do you work? Sounds like another one of those lovely retail stores! *gag* Retail is hell!

My hair is growing, too! Right now is the first time I've had "long" hair in 3 years! It's an amazing thing. My hair used to be really, really short in the back with super long bangs. (I've got pics somewhere if you ever wanna see it.) I can pull my hair back successfully into one of those "pony tails," with a small amount of hair still being too short to be put up. It's nice for a change!

i work at officemax. better than other retail i've worked (imaginarium, wal*mart, warner bros. studio store, hollywood video) for sure, though i'm getting SO bored with it. ugh. and you know i'm always game for pics, missy! that's how my hair was for a long time, really short in back, but super long bangs (which is how i got it cut in my nose picking icon here!)

i'm FINALLY able to pull my hair back into a ponytail, but the bottom sides and the bottom keep falling out, no matter what i do. i keep telling myself 'one more month!', but it seems like my hair never gets any longer. bah.

Oh, retail... I have memeories that are all but fond of setting up racks and racks of personalized pens, license plates, and lazer (sic) cut keyrings. Alphabetizing... Is there anything better?

if there is, i don't wanna know!

i got my lifetime's FILL of alphebetizing when i was a receptionist at a VERY busy lawfirm. i was the ONLY receptionist, meaning i had to do all the phone answering AND filing.

hooey, do i not miss those days!

*hugs* for your long day. I've had that happen with the alarm volume turned down. I never know how it happened because I'd never turn it down for any good reason while conscious, so I assume I do it while half-asleep. Freaky.

I am jealous of your coppery hair...I bet it's lovely. :)

and now because of rearranging my bedroom, for some reason, my clock radio doesn't pick up the music station that it normally does, which is dumb, because it's sitting literally 4 feet from where it was before. because i know it's just a temporary set up in my room, i don't want to lose the station i always listened to, nor make adjustments in order to be able hear music instead of loud fuzz when i wake up.

amazing what i'll put up with because i'm too durned lazy.

My radio is suddenly not picking up NPR as well, and I think it's because I moved it around when putting in the new night table. It's in the same position, but I used to have the cord held up higher against the wall, and for clock radios, the cord acts as an antenna.

So with yours (and I'll be doing this tomorrow), try looping part of the cord above the clock somehow...be it around a lamp, bedpost, pin on the wall, etc. You'll have to keep letting go of the unit, though, since it'll also want to use you as an antenna. But you might find that if you can get the cord just right, you'll get your station better.

Good to know I'm not the only one who's sleep - deprived!

egads, and it always sucks when it is so, because there seems to be NOTHING you can do about it.

the last company meeting, i had two GIANT cups of coffee before i left, two large diet cokes, and a freaking venti cappuccino (with 3 shots), and i was STILL one step above keeling over.
