So, my Thingie has moved digs from the bowels of the Evil Empire to the heart of GreyDuck’s house… Hence my (not-so) triumphant return! It’s been a little more than 2 weeks and a lot has happened since then! Or, rather, it feels like a lot has happened!
Things have been crazy busy in my life… I’ll try to sum it up as succinctly as possible, but it will likely ramble on for a while… That’s just how I am, after all…
I ended up getting hired at the Sony Store and I agreed to work the closing shift all week, so I am tired as hell… There’s something about working from 7 AM til 4 PM at the office, running home to change and see Doug for 20 minutes and then running out to get to the mall in time for my other job and then getting out of there at 10:30 PM that makes me tired *grin*
It’s a fun job and they have lots of cool stuff that I just have to have, but I really could have done with some training… On my first day, my boss gave me some keys and a headset and put me on the salesfloor with about 10 minutes worth of training… They are REALLY lucky that I am a fast learner and quick on my feet… After 3 days of working, I have developed a procedure sheet for the front desk, so that the next person that gets hired won’t be stuck like I was… I also re-vamped their appointment book so it makes more sense and is legible… I’m also in the process of re-organizing the front desk so that anyone who works up there can find stuff without too much trouble… Yeah, I don’t think that they expected someone like me to work there…
My co-workers are mostly OK… one of them bugs the shit out of me and he is just such a sycophantic, brown-noser that it makes me ill… The other guy that I have worked with a few times is super cool and his sense of humor is really similar to mine… He watches a lot of anime (He attends Sakura-con, apparently) and so we have that to chat about… I loaned him the DVD of Mai Otome that GD made for me so he could try it out and he is going to burn me a few samples, too… I obviously need to beef up on my anime if I am going to flirt with him effectively *grin*
Other than that, Doug and I have been hanging out with our friends Jeb and Kaci more… Kaci is learning how to play VTES, which is awesome, so we’ve been seeing a lot of them to get Kaci familiar with the game… Turns out that Kaci is worse than me when it comes to stalking people on line… She has managed to unearth all of my journals including my super secret LiveJournal… Luckily all of the REALLY interesting posts are under a friends-only lock, so she didn’t read any of that… whew!!
April 16 at 11:30 AM — TeaZone in NW Portland!! I am planning on going out for their High Tea and would love to have a bunch of people attend with me… Even if tea is not your thing (like my would-be friend, Rob), they have some really yummy sounding food and it’s a chance to chat with people and hang out You can find out more info (Like what is on the menu by visiting the event website — If you want to go, let me know either via comments or email!! I will make reservations and we can coordinate meeting up!! I really want to go to this with friends (or future friends, Rob *grin*), so PLEASE have pity on me and attend… Thank you! *smile*
That’s it… I am outta here for now! Gotta go and drive home so I can go to my other job… Yippee!!
