Just got back from a shopping excursion. Replaced my pants, but was unable to find cute rain boots. Got myself a new pot because I couldn't find just the replacement lid-will try not to let this one explode. (Or catch on fire, or melt, or become possessed be elder gods.)

I went to a meeting at work today, wherein lunch was served. Unfortunately, lunch was full of eggly deadliness, so by the time the meeting was over I was half-starved. Like any sensible person, I went to McDonald's directly afterwards, ordered a cheeseburger, and sat down to enjoy my repast.
The first bite was, quite possibly, the worst cheeseburger I've ever had in my life. I couldn't figure out what was wrong- it was awfully dry-maybe the bun was a little stale? But I figured it was late in the day, and I was starving, so I tried another bite.
Still terrible. I took the burger apart to see if I could figure out what was wrong with it. For want of a better word, I flipped through the burger: bottom bun, cheese, pickles and onions, ketchup and mustard, top bun.
"Wait a minute", I said to myself. "Do that again!" So I did: bun, cheese, veggies and condiments, bun.

Yep-my cheeseburger was missing the burger. And I was two good bites into it before I caught on.


Lessons learned: (1) I can be downright oblivious when I'm ravenous. (2) A cheese really isn't all that bad, and in a pinch would be almost as good as a cheeseburger.

Holy Smoke!

We had this running joke back home that God smelled like Brut cologne. Apparently we were wrong-He's candle scented.
Experience The 'Scent Of Christ' )

It's really bizarre what you can find when you google search. That link was hit from the search terms "dying with dignity" and "terminology". I was trying to find the article I read that suggested that people tended to talk about needing to protect women who were dying (i.e. keep them on life support) whereas men are talked about in terms of dignity (i.e. have their living wills respected.)

I had a really crappy day at work today. Mostly as a result of my own stupidity-last night I forgot to put a check in the bank deposit bag. When I realized my mistake, I cut that bag open and put everything in the new one-everything except a $50 bill. This wasn't discovered until this afternoon, long after the trash and the original bag were gone. It's very likely that I'll be written up for this-even though my manager knows what happened, it's standard procedure when the deposit is short like that. I don't think offering to pay the difference would prevent the write-up, so I'm not even going to try. Then the ceiling started leaking, directly above our cash register/computer. That was tons of fun.
We also have to do inventory again, due to the huge amount of shrinkage from the last one. I'm getting really annoyed at the whole bloody system-no one's ever apologized for leaving us manager-less for three months, and now we're getting slammed with all the consequences of things that happened then.
Definitely looking for something new for this summer. Wouldn't have to be anything stellar, just pay a touch better than what I'm doing now and not be retail. Bonus points if I get a spiffy uniform shirt with a little logo.
