gah, i feel like a heartless bitch as i remove people from my friends list. again, it's nothing overly personal, and i wish you nothing but wonderfulness in your days to come. and though i feel like an Utter Bitch, it's something that i feel needs to be done.

having that said, i made it through c's and d's. my list hath dropped from 417 friends to 388. hopefully, i'll get to the point to where i could keep up on what's going on in your personal lives. i've missed out on so much: pregnancies, house purchases, other eventful things.

i'm sick of being a bad, bad friend.

work yesterday wasn't hardly bad at all. i actually jogged to work (well, as much as my lungs and side would let me, i think i made it 1/3 of the way total... but not at the same time!), and spent my first 5 hours of working (michaels) downstocking giant HEAVY boxes of photo albums and metal hole punches. my arms are a bit wonky this morning, not to mention the EXCELLENT workout i got for both my arms and thighs: climb up a ladder, pull a box down that is still higher than my head... slowly back down the ladder, holding box over head and using only thigh muscles to balance... bringing out random overpriced merchandise... lifting box over head and climbing back up skinny, rickety ladder, using only thighs for balance.

my 3 1/2 hours between shifts wasn't long and arduous at all. had a nice lunch that i didn't have to race through for once, and went to barnes and noble for tea.

holy MOLY, if you haven't tried their cinnamon sunset tea yet? you MUST. it's freaking ORGASMIC. i read lots (of the r.a. salvatore book i've been trudging through for awhile now). it was so nice being able to just... SIT... next to a window with a beautifully green bush outside, the sun shining through it just so, and nice quietness all around. it makes me almost look forward to the days i have to work both jobs.

my last five hours of working... i got there, supervisor said "you can hug me now, because i'm not putting you on a register tonight!" i squeed with glee...d. (all of our cashiers recently quit, so although i'm excellent with my electronics knowledge and pulling any piece of furniture that does not require a Big Scary 10 Foot Ladder, i have been forced to stand behind a register for almost EVERY SINGLE one of my shifts lately. no bueno. i always feel like i'm being punished when i'm told i have to cashier instead of roaming free.)

so i roamed free! until a couple of hours into my shift, when supervisor roxana said i had to count into one. d'oh! i think i ran like 3 transactions off of it the entire night, though. i was sleepy and loopy, though it was an excellent customer service night, where whenever i answered the simplest question, i was thanked immensely and told i was SOOOO helpful and SOOOO knowledgeable. (versus the nights where people won't talk to me because i'm a GIRL, neveryoumind that i'm the most knowledgeable about said subject over anyone else currently there.) realized that my favorite trio to yak to is debra and don johnson. good times, though not a lot of work got done.

have i mentioned how much i freaking LOVE my coworkers there? love them. now that one or two are gone fairly recently, i have no qualms, most days!


a 3 1/2 break between jobs seemed PERFECT: my feet didn't hurt until right when i got home (lovely scary walk after dark.. uphill...) i wasn't hating humans... yup.

schedule next week? tuesday/thursday off at officemax. working tuesday/thursday at michaels. *sigh*

Your break sounded like so much fun, and I simply MUST try that cinnamon sunset. Sometimes I wish I had a bit more than an hour to break, but then I dont have any cool bookstores right close by! I used to though..spent all my money there too :-P So maybe it's a good thing I dont live near anything..

did you ever get around to trying that cinnamon sunset? still one of my absolute faves, though i've been getting immensely into green teas lately.

it makes me sad that i usually have less than a half hour between school and work at barnes & noble now. funny, that.

i also had a recent splurge at used book stores in the area, until i came to my senses and realized that at the rate i read anymore, i'll never get to them all!

All I have to say is yay for Office Max Clearance School Supplies...

I needed a new binder for my bills, since the one I've got is making me pissed off, and ducked in there because it was the closest office supply place to me. I got a really spiffy one, with a built in pencil pocket, and file pockets in the front so I can file unpaid and paid bills, for $4. Officesupplygasm.

I still think they should give you back the keys.

i own SO MANY school supplies because of working there for 3 back to schools now. (though i admit that i was able to refrain more this year than in years before...) but egads. i own SO MUCH PAPER.

i keep wanting to buy letterhead on clearance (they have some geeky teacher like ones on clearance for $3 atm) so that i can TRY to motivate me and my plans to do snaily maily stuff to people on my friends list. but no matter how much of it i buy, it still hasn't motivated me ;)
Sep. 29th, 2005 07:17 pm (UTC)
And I thought 120 friends on my list was too much. I'm down to 83 and thats still probably too much. HA
Sep. 29th, 2005 07:18 pm (UTC)
well, thank you for keeping me around :D

I need to cull my flist as well - it's over 500. I'm keeping you though since we just met and I'd like to find out more.
Sep. 29th, 2005 07:27 pm (UTC)
goodie! i'm keeping you for the same reason... i have so many people in my list that i just met, and i had added them for a reason: because i had liked what i had seen.

but it's difficult to get to know someone better when you scan through 32874923478 posts a day.

thanks, hun *happy hugs*

Thank you for keeping me! You shouldn't feel like a bitch - at over 400 friends, it's understandable that it's hard to keep up with everyone. I'm having trouble at 96!
Oct. 16th, 2006 01:33 am (UTC)
no problem, my dear!!! i'm happy that you've stuck around as well, though i haven't been the most attentive friend evur.
Sep. 29th, 2005 07:50 pm (UTC)
*checks her info*
Whew! I'm still on the list!
*rereads the post*

"having that said, i made it through c's and d's. my list hath dropped from 417 friends to 388."

C...D........ E!

*"OH NO!"s like Mr. Bill..*
Sep. 29th, 2005 07:52 pm (UTC)
HAHAAHHA reading that made me giggle, just because it's been a long time since I've heard the voice of Mr. Bill in my head.

You totally missed out on my pregnancy, you heartless bitch. You also totally missed out on my abduction to the spacecraft Narfacft1 and my ensuing conception by transparent tentacled versions of Tony Danza. I'm 17 months along right now, in case you were wondering.
Sep. 29th, 2005 08:29 pm (UTC)
Argh, I meant fertilization, NOT conception.

I used to run into this stuff when I worked at a hardware store. I can remember once someone literally asked to talk to a man. I said, "Sure, and he will tell you exactly the same thing." So, I called up my boyfriend (now husband) to answer his question. And he repeated to him, VERBATIM, what I had told him.


It's STILL a man's world, no?
Sep. 29th, 2005 08:48 pm (UTC)
You kept me? Thank you so much sweetiepie!
Sep. 29th, 2005 09:02 pm (UTC)
Noooooooooooooooo! You cant cut me.....I just got here! please....****
Sep. 29th, 2005 10:19 pm (UTC)
You're going to cut me aren't you? :( I'll be sad. :(
Sep. 30th, 2005 12:18 am (UTC)
*breathing a sigh of relief*

I really thought you would cut me! Because we barely know each other, or talk. But I love your postiness.

I know I'm not much of a poster, but it sounds like you have plenty to read!
I cannot imagine having 388 lj's to wade through, not to mention over 400. eep.
