ok off to bed.....my alarm is going to go off soon and I'll have to get up to go to my no good rotten job with mean people that want to buy things for gifts that we've been sold out of for months. "But it's all they want for Christmas this year and now YOU have ruined it for them........."

I can't wait until this holiday season is over. I'm about ready to murder the next person that yells at me at either job. Because everything is my fault for them doing last minute shopping!

One quick little story and then I'm really off.....

on Thursday I worked at WM. We sell gingerbread cookies in a nice holiday tin that everyone just loves. My store has been out of them all week. We sell them year round but during the holidays we have palets of them on the floor. Well the company put them on sale on Sunday and placed them in our weekly ad. We're out but other stores in the entire country still have them. The ad is for every single store, not just ours. People have been livid all week because they drove all the way out to our store for the cookies and we never should have placed them in an add in we weren't going to sell them all week.......even though the add clearly states "WHILE SUPPLIES LAST" So anyways people have been mean and rude all week over these stupid cookies. Yesterday this little old lady said to my manager, who is just the nicest guy I've ever worked for (seriously) "shame on you for ruining my families holiday dessert platter!" He told me that he almost said "shame on you for being so cheap to buy them full price last week when we had tons of them and shame on you for doing all of your shopping last minute...." She had a cart full of holiday stuff, that was all 50% off, that she threatened not to buy unless he pulled a tin of these cookies out of thin air. He just went on and on all day long with the "shame on you" comments to all of us. I think this little old lady almost sent the poor guy over the edge. He only worked a 12 hour day yesterday to make sure all of the customer's on the floor were getting what they needed. I felt so bad for him when she screamed at him in front of the entire line of customers.

I hate retail. 8 more weeks of it and then I hope I'm done with it forever. I can't believe I actually thought working 2 retail jobs over the holidays wasn't going to be so bad.

I gotta say that people here are now resigned to the fact that the stores are sold out of advertised mdse (our ads also say while quantities last). They have just been shrugging and walking away. A couple weeks ago it was worse. Truck schedule was shiffted so the ads would come before the advertised mdse..........not fun.

I was up at 6:22.............much earlier than I planned to be thanks to a large piece of ice sliding and then falling off the roof right outside my bedroom.
Was in the middle of a rather sweet and funny dream.
I left the radio on last night and the station was playing Christmas music.
My dream involved pretty much the whole Oceans 11 remake group...........George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle (don't know why it was this group ). These guys were rocking out on stage (George was the lead singer) to Santa Claus Is Coming To Town..........thanks to the radio still being on he sounded just like Bruuuuce

Then the damn ice (or actually it was the ice dam) fell off the roof.

I can't believe how fast you're going to get it. Did you buy it online because you don't have an Apple store nearby? I was thinking about getting approved for the card and then just running to one of the stores in town to get it. No one is home during the days around here anymore so I didn't want any problems with delivery.

Do you know how you're going to transfer your files from one computer to the other? That's the only thing I'm worried about with going from a pc to a mac.
I haven't thought of how I'm going to do that either .

I ordered it online because I wanted to add RAM and get a bigger hard drive than the original model. I'm not sure if I'm going to be home or not when they're supposed to deliver it. If I'm not, I know where the Fed Ex pick up place is, so I can drive there to pick it up if needed.

That's a gorgeous cake .

I went to Best Buy today, and they were sold out of the digital picture frame I wanted to get, so I just sucked it up and bought another one because I knew I went in there at the last minute (it's really Amazon's fault for not having what I ordered weeks ago in stock).

interesting time in church tonight..................
mom and I need to be kept apart tonight. not a big thing but it was enough for me (and the pastor) to be confused briefly..........it all happened so fast.

It was loyalty (pledge) sunday a few weeks ago and with work and the bizarre weather here we haven't been to services lately. I filled out my pledge card and put it in my jacket pocket and planned to put it in the offering basket. Well pastor walked up to greet us before the services and mom must have felt EXTREMELY guilty about not being to church in while cause it went down like this:
Pastor: so how is everything
Mom (me standing next to her): we haven't been here for a few weeks because of the weather and we missed loyalty sunday and are you still collecting?
Pastor: collecting????
Me: confused look on my face
mom reaches INTO my jacket pocket lighteningly fast and pulls out my pledge card (along with my envelope) and hands it to him..........before the services out in the lobby.........
Me: outloud, in front of pastor "good lord, mom!" (yes it is good to take the lord's name in vain RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE PASTOR). It all happened so fast.............pastor and I sheepishly half-grinned at each other and he handed me my envelope back. I glared at mom and headed into the church. Mom and I had a few words in the back of the church as we were walking in.

I really enjoyed it when during the services pastor made a comment about turning any pledge cards in via the offering basket......mom got a nice little nudge from me. / church rant

Merry Christmas

I think I'm going to head over to the apple store later this week and ask them how to do this.

and thanks! I really do love what I did. I'm shocked that I did something so delicate looking......so is my mom! It doesn't seem like my style to make anything like that but it just sort of happened on paper the night before I had to turn in my portfolio.

Thanks for the package Kelli! I got it last night. I'm going to also make up an 8 hour tape this week filled with a few things that I think she'll like on top of these dvd's. She's going to freak out when she gets it! I bought her U2 by U2 for Christmas and she said she's going to spend all of break reading it.

I send you some dvd's back later this week.

I think randoooooooooom just needs to plan a little vacation to Phoenix this spring to try some of my deliciousness I might not have too much time to hang out and stuff but anyone that's in the mood for a little trip is more than welcome to come on out to Phoenix and see what I do!

I can't decide if I want to stay at home today and do absolutely nothing but watch football or if I want to go out for a bit. I don't have to do anything until Thursday aside from a tiny little 4 hours shift at LE tomorrow, which I'm sure I'll get sent home early. So....I'm not sure I want to be stuck in the house. BUT, there's always a but....it is football Sunday

I do want to run to Ulta, Best Buy, and Trader Joe's today I have a feeling I'm going to be in my car driving in the snow in about an hour........
