Last night, I only got I think a total of three to four hours of sleep…not uncommon for me, however, as I suffer from mild insomnia. It felt so nice to walk to work today. It was nice, and not hot for a change.
Today I opened with my store manager, Tweedledee, as since my office manager is on vacation, we have no choice to have just two openers sometimes. It was a very boring morning for her and I. We did have some people who came in to have some things cleaned, but that was about it. I checked in a watch repair from the repair shop…looked for a lost diamond in our sonic cleaner…wow, I really did have a boring day, didn’t I?
Well, the good thing was that since I stayed so late Monday night, I got to leave at 4:15 instead of 5:30, which was really nice. Edge called me at work and asked if I wanted to go to IHOP. I didn’t feel like being social enough to be in a public place, and I really didn’t have the money to go out, so instead we had Sweet-N-Low make some taco salad…Edge paid for the food.
When I got home from work, I cleaned off my computer desk, finally, and picked up two very interesting things that I have on it. I have a bag of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans and a little miniature action figure of Captain Jack Sparrow. Nickos got them for me from K-Mart, where he works, in addition to a little miniature Wii remote Pez dispenser. I haven’t broken into the Every Flavor Beans, or the Blood Pops that I have sitting in the fridge, as I am not sure how they’re going to taste, especially the Beans. I’m kind of scared of them . The little Captain Jack is kind of funny because he is standing like he is the rope in tug-o-war. So I have him guarding the Beans, just to make sure that no one gets themself into any kind of trouble.
Don’t mind me, I have no brain right now.
I was excited today because Blue Eyes got a new job, and I am so happy for him . It’s funny, but I have never experienced someone being so close to me before. I mean feeling so close to me. I know that, being the rational and logical person that I am, that feeling is not all there is to it, but feeling things are what make us human. I just hope that I am doing my best for him. I hope that I don’t seem selfish to him or anything. Being me, I always worry that I’m not taking care of people well enough. I’ve never been in this situation before, and I just hope that he knows how much I care for him, and Shining Star, and that I will always be there for him to lean on.
That being said, tonight Edge and I watched Gremlins…which I hadn’t seen in a huge while…and it was just so damn funny because of the animatronics or puppetry that was used…I’m not sure which lol.
Then after Sweet-N-Low got home, she finished the taco salad, and we watched Men’s Swimming on the Olympics…and all I kept hearing from the peanut gallery was,”DAMN! Michael Phelps is fine!” To which I responded, “He is a fine looking athelete.” I have someone that I admire in that way, thank you very much, but swimming is an interesting sport to watch. I mean the level of atheleticism that you have to have to be able to come as far as you do in swimming, it just amazes me.
And I straightened my hair for the first time in two months…it looks really different from the normal curl/wave I have going on.
