++ things that amused me yesterday at work:

- a woman returned a shredder she bought two days ago, saying that she needs one that can run for almost a day without stopping. i informed her of our shredding services, so that she wouldn't blow out another shredder in two days. this wasn't good, she wants something she can do herself. i show her one for $79 that shreds for 10 continuous minutes, that's still not good enough. i show her our largest model (which probably still only does it for like fifteen tops), and she freaked out "I'M NOT SPENDING THAT MUCH ON A SHREDDER!!" yeah. if you need one so industrial sized that it can run for several HOURS without stopping at ALL, you're certainly going to pay MUCH more than $200. i wrote down Sentinel, Fellowes, and Tech Solutions for her to google online and sent her on her way.

- a woman called on the phone "hi. do you have the.... what are they called.... i need a price on.... the thumb drives.... it says "san disk, model number five-one-two-em-bee." my reply "oh, you're looking for the 512 mb one? on sale, buy one get one free, $29.99." "no... that's the model number." "okay. they're still buy one get one free."

++ i love it when Bacci chirps long cute sentences at me. i don't love her hopping on my lap, curling around cutely, licking her crotch noisily, then hopping back down. .... out of the entire HOUSE, could you not find a more appropriate place to do that? do you view humans as your shower?

++ i've been building up all sorts of things i've been wanting to tell you, like about Duane the ex Delta airline pilot. and the lady whisper-shrieking "YOU DESERVE TO DIIIIIIIIE" in my ear at the bus stop. or Grandma Pun. but maybe i shall save them for a time when more people are actually on live journal. CURSE YOU, WEEKEND!

++ Pride is this weekend, and i have to work. puh. there goes another pristine opportunity for me to prance around with my closely shorn hair with hopes of a girlfriend.

++ got a finger-stick blood test done yesterday, they deemed me "normal" at 85. well, what about what happens after i eat? why do i get dizzy and feel like vomiting? why do i feel stoned after eating potatoes? "try eating yogurt." "um, i did, it made me ill." "are you lactose intolerant?" "no." "you sure?" "quite." "huh. well try eating cheese, then, and come back and visit a doctor during the week if you continue feeling dizzy." "thanks." the least they could do is give me a cartoon bandaid for my pricked finger. (i also realized i'm a TOTAL baby when it comes to a finger prick, though i can handle shots and blood takings all day long.)

++ went to school to sell my books back, which they wouldn't take, as they're getting new ones in the fall. welllllllll, poop. bought my books for next quarter for $120. combined with the hair cut, phone bill, and food, i'm pretty much virtually broke for the next two weeks. p.s.- i got a 4.0 in my math class, too.

++ went to the corner store this morning to get coffee and breakfast. realized as i was standing in front of a long line with my drank from coffee and my fist fulla burrito that i had left my debit card in my OTHER pants. I HAVE A DOLLAR!!! the lady said that she would get it, and i could just get her back some day. note to self: you owe Ruby $4. embarassing. i guess it could have been worse if i had ate the food or taken friends out to splurge on a giant meal... and then realized i had no card. faaantastic.

ooooh hoo hoo hoo, do i have an ornry cat this morning.

I really wish I would have eventually posted about him. I think I did about the DIIIIEEE lady, but I don't remember much about the ex-pilot, which makes me sad.

My cat tries to dig a hole in my bedroom door every night, which sadens me greatly. I have tried letting her sleep with me, but then she tries to dig through other things (like my bedding) while I'm trying to sleep. The door I can sometimes sleep through, the possible shredding of my sheets and comforter I cannot.

Re: pride?? you mean gay pride??
Yup. I'm not gay (as I've probably stated a million times, lolz), but I like to go with my gay brother and see the festivities and buy random things at the podiums and watch the drag queen shows and the naked women running around downtown. It's just such a .. weird experience.

I've only been hit on once by a woman, crispy tan (to where she was wrinkly tan), short shorts, no shirt, VERY saggy breasts and bleached blonde hair... "I'm Danieeeelllllle. Are you going to the Dykes on Bikes parade?"

"hopes of a girlfriend?" Obviously I've missed a lot in my LJ-dormancy period! Go for it!

BAH HA HA. You make me laff. I thought of her when we recently got one that can OMG shred for twenty continuous minutes.

In situations like that, I so hope that they go somewhere else and are told the same things by all the other people that they terrorize.

OMG LMAO! Sounds so like the highly overpaid people I deal with all day on the phone. I do internal helpdesk at Intel.

Yay! I have gone every other year so far, which makes this year the year to go for me. I'm hoping to go with mosspiglet, as she would be great fun, I'm sure.

Course, with enough beer, anything can be great fun ;)

I wasn't the ONLY one left in the dark about the pride thing and the hopes of a girlfriend thing.

Good. I was started to get a little scared!

Pray tell....

I haven't had that many interesting ones to tell at all lately, which is good, I guess. It's usually people that treat me like crap that cause the stories! I DID have a guy that was highly irritated that I couldn't check Staples' inventory through our OFFICEMAX computers, and another guy in fatigues that was a TOTAL jerk to me - omG, how could women know anything about electronics?

Makes me happy that I'll be able to spend more time in the back soonly.
