I've had the last two days off work and I'm been insanely bored. I read a bit yesterday in the living room. I knew if I read in my room I'd turn on the tv or go online and frankly, I just didn't feel like doing either. But, if they were in my general viscinity, either one or both, would take precedence.
I took a 45 min nap in the afternoon. It would've been longer but my mom came home and I figured I'd be in trouble if she caught me sleeping, so I woke up.
Dave planted the idea of brownies and ice cream in my and Katie's heads last night, so we made him take us to the grocery store so we could get some.
I watched the House season finale last night. It was interesting, to say the least.
Today I woke up at 9, as always, to watch Crossing Jordan on A&E and it wasn't on and I am le pissed. After finding out it wasn't on, I couldn't go back to sleep *sigh*
Didn't do much today at all. Threw some laundry in to get clean, texted Amanda back and forth pretty much all day. I found out Josie quit work today. It's sad but completely understandable. It's about time one of us got out of there. She just couldn't take it anymore. She called in sick on Saturday and went out Sunday night and Natasha saw her and then came in on Monday and told everyone. I mean seriously, you just dont do that. It was none of her business, and Josie calling in sick didn't affect Natasha at all, considering she didn't even work last weekend. Anyway, so Josie is done for good.
Mia called me tonight to ask me to cover Josie's shift on Sunday, and obviously because I have practically no other shifts, I accepted happily.
I watched Canada's Next Top Model tonight. So far the three girls I wanted to stay are still there so that's good.
I'm watching Hidden Palms right now. I have a thing for Taylor Handley (Oliver from the OC). It's a pretty good show so far. Michael Cassidy (Zack from the OC) is a jerk though.
So, here's the rundown of the last few days:
Wednesday: I made my mom take me to the mall. I bought two hoodies (and yes, I'm aware it's summer and like 30 C and humid), a pair of jeans, Scrubs season 5 and Planet Earth (because let's face it, I'm a nerd). So I spent a ton of money on that to come home to the bill for tuition. Shitty. I need $1400 by July 18. Not happening. I think I'll try to apply for OSAP again. I better get it this year! Or even just a few hundred dollars. Otherwise I'm going to have to call the school and get a payment plan set up, which I am totally up for. Just not the actual calling part.
Thursday: Sat around doing pretty much nothing all morning and most of the afternoon. Ann-Marie called so I talked to her for a bit. I worked at 4. And I went in to find out we hired yet another cashier. Fuck. I'm already getting close to no hours, and now they go and hire someone else! Unless they're planning on firing someone, I don't see why we need another. Don't get me wrong, the new new girl, Lana, is nice. Shy and a little awkward because she's 15 and this is her first job, but she is nice. And Celia's grown on me. But seriously, WTF. I am uber pissed, as is Amanda and Josie.
Friday: Amanda and her friend Megan and I went to go get our hair done. Our appointment was at 10 and Amanda's friend Gianna, was the one doing all of our hair. We all got it dyed and Amanda and I both got highlights. She got pink and I got a subtle red. I wanted bright red, but in the end I really ended up liking the subtly instead. By 3:15 only Megan and Amanda had gotten their hair cut. Amanda had to work at 4 and Megan drove so they ended up having to leave me at the salon. I was ok with taking the bus home but then we got hit with a freak storm (and there was apparently a possible tornado by my house) and I called my brother to pick me up instead. I felt bad though because he had just come from Upper James (which was where the salon was).
Anyway, no more than 15 minutes after I got home Sarah called me to see if I wanted to go out. So I said sure and she picked me up a little while later. We headed to Denningers to get food (I hadnt eaten all day) and then went to the movies. SilverCity was sold out of all the showings of Pirates of the Caribbean so we had the brilliant idea of going to the drive-in instead. I hadn't been there in SO long! Pirates was good. I prefered it to the second one. The first is still the best, IMO, but I liked the third. The second movie was The Invisible. It was ok. A little odd. I ended up getting home at 2:30 am. That was fun.
Saturday: Woke up too early. I wasn't sure what time we were leaving for Toronto because Amanda wanted to go to Much Music first. So I got up so I could get ahold of her. Around 11 she called me (we had already talked earlier) and was freaking out because Megan (Who was supposed to be our ride downtown and home) was backing out because her cousin who was going with us was no longer allowed to come. So we had two extra tickets and no way home after the concert. *sigh* Amanda ended up getting her mom to pick us up in downtown Hamilton after the concert and I took my sister Katie along with us. She doesnt really like Fall Out Boy at all, but it was a free ticket and it got her out of the house, so she came along. And had a lot of fun. Her and Amanda got along well, which I wasn't worried about anyway. I knew they would. We took the bus downtown, stopping at the mall first so Amanda could get a phone card. And in front of us - Miss. Antolich, this teacher Katie and I had in elementary school. I hated her.
We got on the Go Bus, after feeding some birds at the terminal lol. When we got to Union Station in Toronto, we walked from there, along Lakeshore and whatnot all the way to the Molson Ampitheatre, a good 45 min walk away. It was a pleasant walk though, so no complaints.
Our seats weren't covered seats and when we got to them we saw that one of them was completely covered in a cobweb and the rest were covered in bird shit. So we sat on the lawn for the first opening band Cobra Starship...who I'm completely in love with right now. Right after they performed Paul Wall was going to perform. And since none of us are really into rap we made a beeline for the merchandise table where Cobra Starship was going to be. Amanda got an autograph and a picture taken with Gabe, the lead singer and she was completely in heaven. While we were over doing that, Katie was in line with our money to buy Amanda a t-shirt and me a FOB tote bag. (I'd post a pic of it but I dont feel like uploading anymore lol)
We made it back in time for the next bands, The Academy Is... and +44. We sat in some empty seats that we found and then moved up a few rows closer. And then MOTHER FUCKING FALL OUT BOY!!!!! Seriously probably the most energy filled concerts I have ever been to. I was so impressed with them. And Pete was hot (sorry, needed to add that). I realized I am scarily turning emo....moreso than before. But not the bad emo. Because I hate them. lol Anyway, after the concert we hailed a cab (my first time) and went back to Union Station. We got on the 11:45 bus and were back in Hamilton by about 12:40. Amanda's parents picked us up and we were home by 1ish.
Sunday: I had to work at 10. Work wasn't bad at all. I was the last one in so I was a floater. I bagged most of the day. Rarely went on cash, which I was totally fine with. Amanda and I talked most of the day about the concert and sang. I had Of All the Gin Joint in all the World in my head because I was so excited that they played it at the concert, and I ended up getting it stuck in her head. Go Team Kayla. Celia was happy to listen to us and tell us we were geeks. She's fitting in quite nicely lol. She went to Tim Hortons on her lunch and she got me a sandwich and an ice capp!! Everything is extremely relaxed at work because Annamaria and Angelo have gone to Cuba until Thursday. They should go away more often. *nods*
We had a smooth close and Celia drove me home.
I've had a busy-ish weekend. Let me tell you about it.
Saturday: I worked 10-6. It was crazy busy. I had 323 customers all on my own, not to mention the 200 + customers Josie had. And I made almost $11,000. Go me.
I was so tired after work, but Sarah came over and dropped off her TV which I am buying from her. I decided it was pathetic that my computer screen was larger than my TV screen so I had been talking about getting a new one for awhile. Anyway, then after I changed out of my work clothes we went to Niagara Falls and almost got ourselves lost...again. But we figured as long as the casino was in front of us we were at least still in Canada lol. It was SO busy, due to the fact it's the holiday weekend. It took us 45 minutes to find a freaking parking spot.
We finally did, and made our way to the....arcade. YEP! I prefer the arcade to the casino. At casinos you just completely lose your money most of the time. Whereas with the arcade you're a winner everytime. I had 1058 tickets so I got myself a talking Donkey from Shrek. I was pretty impressed with myself. Sarah had 1053 so she went to go play more games to get enough tickets (1500 was what she needed) to get a huge Pirate Patrick (from Spongebob). After the arcade we headed home in the pouring rain. Fun times. I got home at 1am.
Sunday: I worked 9-6. I woke up at 7:05 because I heard the tap downstairs in the kitchen turn on. But I was convinced it was my alarm clock so I kept hitting it until I realized it wasn't the alarm at all. *sigh* I was quite out of it. Work was meh. Amanda and I went all day going back and forth between whether or not we liked the new girl or not. Sometimes she justs rubs us the wrong way, but by the end of the night she was kind of out of it and spazzy, which amused us greatly.
I got home from work and could barely make it up and down the stairs. Amanda asked me if I wanted to go to Valley Park to see the fireworks but I was curled up in bed and not moving for the rest of the night lol. But it turns out she met a guy in Leslie Carter's (Nick Carter's sister) band and he was telling them all about celebrity parties and what not. I'm a little bummed I didn't decide to go.
Then she called me at 11, just as I was falling asleep and my phone was loud and it scared the crap out of me.
Today: I worked 8:30-5. I was a little late leaving the house this morning so I took the shorter, scary route to work. It was busy today, but I made a lot less money and had a lot less customers than Saturday which I just find plain odd. Amanda and I were plotting our joint homicide plan. Neither one of us could take it anymore today. We were both so tired and stressed. It got really busy just as we were trying to close, which is nothing unusual. But Mia let us make an announcement that we were closed AND she locked the doors 5 minutes early and we got to turn people away. I enjoyed it.
I had the worst headache today. It started off feeling like someone was poking my right temple and then progressed to feel like someone had their hand over my head and was digging their fingers into the sides of my head. And from there it went into a full blown migraine. I stepped outside after work and the sun hurt me SO much. I got home and took a regular Advil, hoping that would work, but 45 minutes later when my headache was still incredibly painful, I had to take a migraine Advil (they make me tired so I dont like to take them if I dont have to). And thankfully the headache has dissipated.
I got home from work and set up the TV and I'm still finding it odd watching shows on a bigger screen, but I love it.
I'm off tomorrow, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Yes...I have a shitty schedule this week. BUT, I have plans already for Friday and Saturday so go me! I think tomorrow is going to just be a relaxing day. Wednesday I'm going to see if Ann-Marie wants to hang out. I was supposed to call her last week and didnt because I was working. Friday Amanda and I are getting our hair done and Saturday is FALL OUT BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm about to head off to bed, but before I do I want to formally congratulate Jen, who made mod on the Sarah Wayne Callies board on Fan Forum!!! We're mod buddies!!! *high five*
Anyway, good night!
The other week Patti from work said when I get married I'd probably kill my husband. I said something and it came out wrong, and she said it sounded like I was already planning the murder...
Does this look like the face of someone who could take someone else's life? *flashes toothy grin*
I find it amusing, at least.
I mean come on, I'm not that psychotic!
The oddest thing happened to me today. My cousin Mandy, from my Dad's side, added me to Facebook. I haven't talked to her in a good 11 or 12 years. My mom and I were just talking about her the other day as well...which really makes the timing odd. But it's even weirder that when looking at pictures of her that she had up...I couldn't figure out which person in the pics were her...it's been that long I guess.
Oh, and my mom now has Facebook. *sigh*
Work today was annoyingly dead. Maureen, Mia and Celia (the new girl) all worked....so four of us. I wasn't allowed to leave Celia alone on cash, and I didn't even have my own till so I was stuck bagging for Celia all night. I was going stir crazy!
Anyway, off to bed with me!
Today was pretty much a 'blah' day. Didn't do anything fantastic.
I didnt sleep much last night because I was worried that Amanda wouldn't call into work for me this morning and that I would therefore not end up going in.
But, just after 7:30 she sent me a text telling me I was working Tuesday and Thursday at 4. What the hell kind of crap is that!?!?! If I find out new girl got more and BETTER shifts than me, I'm going to be uber pissed. *waves hand frantically* I've been there FOUR years!!! */ frantic hand raising* I figure I'll see if the schedule fixes itself next week and if not...I think I'll have to start looking for a new job...and I'm sure Josie and Amanda will do the same. How are we supposed to pay for school when we're only working 8 hours during the week? I mean, some nights I sleep more than that!
Anyway, so after getting up early, I was paranoid that she had gotten the schedule wrong, so I didn't end up falling asleep. I watched Because I Said So this afternoon and talked to Ann-Marie who had her first mother's day yesterday.
I seriously cannot get over Thursday's episode of The Office. Everytime I see icons for it online I crack up. It's just way too funny.
My cat scratched the hell out of my hand today. It hurts and it was purely accidental on his part so I can't be too mad.
Scrubs was renewed for a seventh and final season. That makes me immensely happy! I love that show. I find it to be bordering on genius. Season 5 comes out on DVD next week...I must buy it.
Anyway, I'm heading to bed.
I worked Friday and Saturday and both days were so dead. Minus the last half our or so on Friday where a swarm of people showed up.
Annamaria's (my boss) mother passed away on Thursday morning, so when I went to work on Friday there was just this cloud hanging over the entire store. Understandably, considering it's family-run so most of the people there are related to her in some way. Poor Anthony didn't look like Anthony at all. He looked like a child who was just so lost. I dont generally get the urge to hug people, but he just looked so sad that I just wanted to give him a big hug. She was his grandmother, afterall, and I know all too well how much it hurts to lose a grandmother you're close to.
We had a new girl start on cash on Friday, but I didn't meet her until Saturday. She's pretty nice. Her name is Celia and she's 19. I was hoping for someone my age, since Mia is two years older, Amanda is two years younger and Josie is three years younger (then there's Patti, Maureen and Jenn who are much older). Oh well. But we weren't happy when she got to leave at 4 on Saturday. We figured she'd need to learn to close one day, and what better time to learn than when it's not insanely busy (And she can actually learn) and when I'm working? I dont understand why Patti sent her home...Me, Amanda and Josie teaching her how to close or Maureen? Which is better? (of course that's rhetorical for you folks).
My mom picked me up from work and she was in a baaaaaaaaad mood. Every second word was 'fuck'. I knew I should'nt have asked what was wrong lol.
I watched the last three episodes of season 1 of Supernatural last night. Now I just need to go back and watch the episodes that have commentary and I'm all set to start season 2. I also watched "The Queen." It's a very good movie. I enjoyed it.
I also decided to show my mom my ear last night. This was after she had calmed down and was in a good mood, of course. She just jokingly called me a fool and that was it. Good.
Today I went to go buy my mom's Mother's Day present (yes, I know, a little late). Anyway, I planned on buying her an MP3 player, but no one was around to open the case for me so I ended up just getting her a gift card that she can put towards one or whatever else she wants. Dave bought her a new digital camera. It's quite fun.
I watched Stranger than Fiction this afternoon. I really like that movie. I should buy it.
I had lobster for the first time today. It is not a fun process trying to get the meat out of the various shelled parts. My mom just ripped into them. It was quite funny. I played with one until she decided she was going to eat it. I named him Pinchy. I was upset that she devoured him. *tear* Cohen throughly enjoyed it though. Katie and I sat down at the table and the cat jumped up right between us, onto the table because he could smell the lobster. It was amusing. And he kept pacing back and forth on the floor, waiting for some to eat.
Amanda was supposed to check the schedule for me today. She failed to. Now I am making her wake up at 7:30 to call in to see if I'm working or not. lol
I went to have a shower tonight and there was close to no pressure in the shower at all. Turns out there was a water maine break on Amanda's street (a few over from mine) and therefore, it affected our water. She said her street was a river.
My ear isn't hurting. I'm pleasantly surprised at how little pain I've experienced. It didn't hurt too badly when I got it pierced and after a single Advil, I felt nothing for the entire night. Although Tuesday night I did have trouble sleeping. My room was extremely warm and I was tossing and turning and everytime I wanted to sleep on my right side I had to remind myself I couldnt. But, by last night (one day after the piercing) I was able to comfortably lay on my right side. Amanda said that days 3-6 were the worst for her. Day 3 is almost over for me and I've had no problems. Yay!
I decided I was going to wait to see how long it would take for my mom to notice my ear. And I'm still waiting. I havent been hiding it either. My hair has been up and my ear has been in her eyeline many times since Tuesday. And nothing. So, either she's pretending she doesnt see it or she's really not as observant as she claims she is.
Work was dead yesterday. And it made the day go by SO slowly. Not a fun day at all.
Bones last night was pure <3. Seriously, Angela and Jack are too awesome!! He is such a sweetie. And Booth/Bones...too cute!!!
American Idol...I don't know who I want to win anymore since Chris was voted out last week. Blake's a cutie and he's great with the beatboxing...but then Melinda has been paying her dues as a backup singer and she's great as well. Jordin is so talented for being only 17. I really don't think there's a clear cut winner at this point.
Went out to Sarah's this afternoon. We watched Music & Lyrics on her new big screen hi-def TV. It was awesome! And the movie was great too ;) Hadn't seen it yet (sad , considering my love for Hugh) but I loved it and now need to purchase it for myself.
After an hour or so of watching YouTube videos we went to the mall for a bit. I bought Catch & Release and Because I Said So on DVD. I was looking for the Planet Earth documentary boxset, but they didn't have it! I am saddened.
The Office tonight was too awesome. Loved the Pam stuff!!! The girl rules.
I need to get my mom a mother's day present still. And I work tomorrow and Saturday...so Sunday? LOL I suppose I could go before work tomorrow, but my mom will be home and will probably become a little suspicious as to why I suddenly want to go out.
Today I went and got my cartilage pierced. Yep....I finally did it! Go Team Kayla!
It didn't really hurt. Felt a little odd....but in a weird way, it was nice. It's hard to explain but in talking to Amanda immediately afterward (she went with me) she totally understood what I was trying to say (since she got hers done two weeks ago). But ya, didn't hurt, more like someone was pinching my ear for a few seconds. It hurt a bit afterward, but Advil seems to be helping.
