Merry Christmas Eve!

I really need to get out of my pajamas and get dressed, as I have to leave for work in 20 minutes or less. Instead, I shall compose this post whilst inhaling the last of my grape nuts.

I went to bed with the knowledge that I am out of coffee at the house. Being addicted to caffeine as I am, if I would wait until I get to work at noon to make a pot, I would already be dealing with a horrible and debilitating caffeine headache. As I lay in bed this morning, I remembered that I had picked up a tiny single pot package from the canned food warehouse type place! Wooooey hoooo!

I went into the kitchen and realized I have ZERO idea where I put it. After going through everything in the kitchen, I finally found it. I literally lifted it over my head and yelled "YESSSSSSSSS!!!!..." (Picture the stance in your mind, if you will, of He-Man and his sword, and a loud statement of "By the power of Greyskull... IIII HAVE THE POOOOOWAAAAH.") I started to cheerfully make a pot of coffee: put in the filter, poured in the water, cut open the package of coffee. As I pour the little shiny package into the filter, one word on the package stood out to me...

...

....Decaffeinated.

..... WHYYYYYYYYYYY?!??!? I'M MELLLLTING, MELLLLLTING!

Well, poop. I then discovered that I had two tea bag like thingies left of my Folgers instant, so I cut those open and tossed the meager crystals on top.

I don't know why I'm sulky about being the closing manager on Christmas Eve. I certainly don't have plans - the only family in the area is my mother and brother, and I live with one and will be visiting the other tomorrow. Maybe it's just the principle of the thing. It's also only a teensy six hour shift, not nine or ten like I usually work.

Well fuckity fuck. I didn't solve my non-caffeine issue today, so I have zero for tomorrow, too! I'm such a brainiac. At least I have beeer.

After today, I would SO rather have worked those two days instead of today. So freaking much went wrong. In doing the paperwork at the end of the evening, I discovered I had to be the closing manager last Christmas Eve, too.

My favorite was some people who came and POUNDED on our door a half hour after we closed (at 630) because they wanted to know if we carried a ribbon for their typewriter.

I don't know. I pretty much just laughed off the people who were pissed that they had to wait in line - the longest our line EVER was was four people deep, with one of those four in the process of being rung up. When I was at Barnes & Noble yesterday, the line wrapped around the freaking store!

I pretty much did all of my shopping at my work or at Walgreens at butt thirty in the morning! I'm soooo very much dreading the next 30 days, though, where customers are SUPER UBER BITCHY, CRUEL, AND SCREAMY.

ughhh I work with the public, but at least not in the same respect. We're just going to be full of kids until break's over.

Well shoot. Had I known you had no plans, but alas. Probably no way you could have made it out here anyway. You will probably have to drink a pint of stout in order for this comment to make sense. Gods know I have about that much in me now.

Two words:
You are Awesome!

Okay that's three but if I had said You Awesome it would not been proper english, not that I speak it all the time.

I was hoping that you day went well but I read the comments. Do you drink coffee on a pretty predictable schedule? Perhaps you could get a 'subscription' of sorts from the amazon grocery section?
