Deposited a check and took care of that whole overdraft thing.
I'm still broke as hell, but at least it isn't in negative numbers.
Through a lot of misdirection from a manager and said manager's repeated failure to listen to a word I had to say, I more or less destroyed an area of the store, making several other managers very mad in the process. They didn't blame me. I didn't blame me. And it was very telling that the HR manager called me into her office just to get the story on exactly *what* it was that he'd told me to do. And then said "this is what happens when someone who doesn't know what he's doing is convinced that he does."
And then I started to develop sinus/throat issues.
It was only a matter of time when I count up the number of very ill people I've had too much contact with lately. Working in retail is a cold waiting to happen.

Slept in.
Took my time getting up.
Had leisurely coffee.
Bought hairdye and face scrubby stuff to stop these random zit eruptions.
I don't get acne, I've never been prone to red bumps or big zits. But every once in awhile I get one and it's huge and refuses to leave.
Then I bought stripper boots.

And TechRadioShow tonight at 8 eastern time. GO LISTEN. They'll actually be *broadcasting* this week. You can catch them online through CNet radio (follow the links on the page) or on XM radio, channel 130. Or, if you're in the San Jose/San Francisco area, the CNet channel is 910AM.
I'll be loadly stating all my many and various opinions (sometimes even about the show...) in the chatroom. There's a java version on the techradio site or connect through IRC
Server : chat.hosting4u.net port: 7000 channel: #techradio

Very thorough plug, don't you think?
I'm sure I left something out though.

"Destroyed." I'm curious about precisely what you mean by that.

Woo! Stripper boots! Woo! (Calves!)

Is it just me, or is it actually kind'a funny that you post these "go listen to the techradio show!" things more often than akadashi does? (He should swap places with me-- there's no way in hell I'm going to get to do anything non-kid-related at five p.m., but at eleven, things are usually clear.)

These days I tend to post 'em here.

Besides, Holly has a bigger friends list. 'Cos she has a buh-gina.

And because I actually post on my journal.
And I post them so often because I'm *nice* and you guys are great and you deserve an audience.

::shrug:: or maybe it's because I have a buh-gina.

I mean several aisles were completely emptied out of merchandise except for the trash, the railings and the backer papers. Two other aisles had chunks of merchandise on them, but not enough to fill the aisle and nothing that actually looked... good.
The back wall was left with 20 feet of extra space.
Basically, I fucked it all up to a point where someone was going to have to scramble for the next several hours to try to make it look okay again.

I'm not too enthused about the stripper boots today.
I dunno if I'll ever really get a good chance to wear them, really. And ya know... anyone can look slutty.

Ah. So, you meant "destroyed," then. Day-um!

And, ya know... lots of people can't look slutty SUCCESSFULLY.

I think I've been convinced that they might be alright. Still slutty... but alright.
I dunno, Gates... It's just not very *me*...

But then, who the fuck is "me" lately, eh? I think there's a girly girl inside somewhere who desperately wants more shoes and some sexy little outfits and whos just decided to start forcing my hand.

I considered buying a little pallet of makeup the other day too.

I miss you, Gates. We need to start a letter writing policy or something.
