i felt like i woke up in the twighlight zone of happiness today.

- first, i woke up feeling like my eyelids were glued shut. dangit, i so forgot to take my eye makeup off last night. RAWK.
- i open up the door and Bacci is standing there, giving me a little "meowp!" in greeting, rubbing against my ankles, and racing off to eat (ever since the exact day we got her, for some reason, being around me makes her want to eat.) i love it when she greets me in the morning.
- i stand on the scale. 188. oh, that's nice. ......waaaaitaminute. ONE EIGHTY EIGHT? um.. maybe it's broken or being charitable, i'm not THAT light. i stand off the scale and let it turn off, then climb aboard again. 188. oookay. that makes it.. 10 lbs dropped since last wednesday? i don't believe it, but sure, i'll take it. (it also makes me 2 lbs less than what it says on my drivers license, and 39 lbs dropped since april. woot.)
- i come downstairs, and am headed to the kitchen, hoping to get a cup of coffee in before i have to leave. i'm almost there, when the house phone rings. i answer, and it's Manager Rick "HELLOOOO! is aubrey there, by chance?" "this is her." "heeeeeeeey, this is OFFICEMAX! this is RICKY!" "heh heh, hey, Rick." "I was wondering if you would be.. i dunno.. heading out anywhere today?" "welp, i'm not sure... i AM going to be going into officemax around 10 am." "ha ha ha, are you now?" "yeah, roxana talked me into it. 10 to 4." "well, that's just SUPER! well, i'll tell you what, i'll have someone, say.. muriel.. come and pick you up around 945, since it's raining, and we can buy you breakfast, as well!" "well, rain never hurt anyone, i don't mind getting a little wet." "NONSENSE! i'll have muriel call you and get directions."
- after hanging up and getting coffee, it is thee best tasting cup of coffee i've had in a long time.

i'm not on a great mood, mind you. if anything, i'm a little wary. i feel... lol weirded out, i spose.

now, to sit and drink my coffee and watch season 2, episode 1 of stargate. need to get me some daniel jackson ON before work. just need it, unkay? i hear he dies in this episode.... ;)

You have AWESOME co-workers. But you knew that already, I'll bet.

occasionally, when i start getting VERY bored of my job, i think of changing where i work, just for a change of scenery. but then i remember how EASY i have it there. i know everything. i get priviledges that regular coworkers don't get. my coworkers give a rats ass about me.

what's COOLEST, though, is about half of the time when i come into work, everyone greets me with a gigantos grin and a wave as they genuinely happily say "AUBREEEEY! HIIII!"

that makes it all worthwhile.

WOw that is super cool! Here's to the continuation of such a good day :)

Kitty face does that too and I don'tknow why, she will just come around me and next thing she does is eat, I don't know why or understand. She starting to get a bit big because she don't play (no one or anything to play with) and I'm worried that I'm making her bigger because she will come around me or see me then go eat!

bacci still to this day will rarely eat without someone there to watch her. i wonder what that stems from.

Wow great co-workers. Are you sure he wasn't flirting though? LOL.
Aug. 17th, 2005 04:40 pm (UTC)
*shudders* The thought of Rick flirting is just a little... upsetting.
But yeah, I hear in some societies the ass of a rat is highly valued.

Thanks for covering today, I'm spending my 5 minutes of non-busy time reading and commenting here ^_^ and saying that we give MORE than a rat's ass about you. I'd say more of a New York Sewer Rat's ass. Those things are the size of a healthy kitty.

hee hee, thanks much!

yancey got back from his honeymoon and was all saddened to see that you weren't working there this summer! igor came back, which has everyone grunting, but i guess with joel gone, we have to have someone to irritate us!

Igor's back? Awwh, he couldn't stay away from the MaxAssurance for too long after all.

he got BAD by the time he had left, too, where we were all practically pushing him out the door. i remember a day he told me, for example, while i was racing around and fuhreaking out that i had so much to do on the ad, that he didn't feel like being a back up cashier, so i could just deal with it. (?!?!?!!) he would tell management repeatedly that he didn't get a degree to be a cashier, nor to sell anything but electronics. he would never help with closing stuff or go backs, just hang around in electronics.

we're so hoping that now he's seen how awful things are Out There in real retail and how easy he really had it, that he'll be better this time.

one can only hope.

I'm crossing my fingers for ye.

What a wonderful start to a (hopefully) wonderful day. Seems like you're being rewarded for being a good person. :)
Jul. 19th, 2006 08:48 pm (UTC)
hee hee, thanks. i always love it when kharma decides to repay, but sheesh, when it does it all at once, it makes me think that something's up instead of all good and happy!
Aug. 17th, 2005 07:13 pm (UTC)
you sure that wasn't a dream???
Aug. 17th, 2005 07:47 pm (UTC)
So glad you had a cool day! Hey, nice icon!

I have decided that there are going to be two journals I start out with, reading all the backlogs and commenting on everything I've missed. You're one of them. But the question I wanted to ask you, is in which order should I start reading them? I'll keep on yours till I've read all the journals of yours I'm friends with, but you still have the opportunity to pick which one first.

I love you.

well, my story really begins over five years ago (!!) on aubreystar. i was a very different person then. if you're feeling reeeeeeallly mighty energetic, then that would be the one to start with, switching to this one on july 31st, 2002.

ooh, my aubka-versary is coming up! wee!

all of the deeeeeeepest gut-wrenching stuff is in alix, and the more just sad stuff is in maia. and the ramblings are in the other maia.

and i totally forgot about laeka, too, though that was one i had jokingly started from the standpoint of my paladin in everquest, back when she was my main.
Aug. 18th, 2005 05:17 am (UTC)
Man I wish more of my days started off like that. By the time I get up and go outside the bedroom the cats are already fed and just lazy and acting like little speedbumps.
Jul. 22nd, 2006 05:43 pm (UTC)
i always feel that Something is Amiss of Bacci doesn't greet me at my bedroom door, though so far *knock on wood* other than the two times she had gotten out, nothing has been, she's just been too lazy or really didn't care.
