Well, hello again ladies and germs.
It hasn’t been all that long since I’ve written last but somehow it feels like an eternity. To a certain point, every day seems like it’s about three years long. This week has been strange, due to having Thanksgiving off, and my mother and brother having Thursday and Friday off school.
Let me begin by describing Thanksgiving. We planned to go to my aunt and uncles’ house which is an hour and a half away. I was awake at six am, had to shower, get my stuff together, eat breakfast, all that jazz. Surprisingly enough, we left by our deadline, 7:30am. We rarely, if ever, get out at the time we designate, at least not without wanting to kill each other before we leave. This time it all went off without a hitch, which was a nice start to the day.
The car ride was uneventful, what with me listening to a mix cd that had everything from ‘Fool in the Rain’ by Led Zeppelin to ‘I love a rainy night’ by Eddie Rabbit, taking pictures of the gorgeous sunrise, and daydreaming.
My uncle is a teacher at the high school in that town, and they have a foreign exchange student from Thailand whose name I will only butcher if I try to spell it. The morning was spent watching part of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and playing with my aunt’s dog, Barkley. He’s a cute freaking dog.
The meal was amazing, what with mother, my brother myself, and this foreign exchange student chatting it up. We got to explain Thanksgiving and Christmas to him, which was kinda cool. After that, we finished the movie and played with the dog more, while the ‘adults’ were upstairs playing board games (I almost spelled that ‘bored’ games, roflcopter). We stayed for dinner, which was chips, turkey sandwiches, that sort of thing. Anyhoo. The car ride home and the rest of that evening were uneventful and will as such be left out of the blog.
Now, yesterday felt like Saturday since I usually have to work on Thursdays, but work was closed on Thanksgiving.
Yesterday at work was less than interesting. The little twit I work was, as usual, extremely annoying, and even though it was my turn to leave early, I told him to GTFO around 8pm when JD said one of us could leave. Hey, I need the money. I might leave early tonight, or I might just tell the twit to leave early again, depends on how I feel. But honestly. The twit was extremely, extremely annoying. Trampling on my nerves as usual. The whole time it was, ‘Don’t mess around, don’t waste the plastic wrap, wash this better, stop that, put that down, quit eating your damn burger and put some dishes away…” I mean good god people.
I honestly don’t care who leaves early tonight. Either way, I get rid of the twit a whole two hours before the kitchen closes which is fine by me. Although, Adam is working tonight and if I could temporarily go deaf for any like three hours a day it’d be when I work with him.
Anyway. I stayed after work and bothered Mitch, although I figure, if he were that bothered he’d have told me to go away. It was a nice bit of conversation even if there wasn’t a whole lot said. I was about to say I’m not all that talkative but I actually am, just not in situations where I don’t really know what to say or how to start a conversation. I honestly don’t think I’d talk to Mitch at all if it weren’t for music. Or my fishnet arm covers. Lol.
Luckily I saved the jukebox from the country they were playing before I got off work. Then it was like, revival of the 80s, and I wasn’t even playing anything. These people that were in, I swear they played the entire Hall & Oates catalogue, which doesn’t bother me since I like Hall & Oates. I did hear ‘Private Eyes’ and ‘Rich Girl’ twice, though. I played ‘Take On Me’ by A-ha and was humored by all these drunk people trying to hit the high note. I’m pretty sure I was the closest, although at that point I was pretty drunk so perhaps not. Thank god for the bar running out of peach schnapps on Wednesday though, or I’d have never discovered my new favorite drink, a fuzzy navel but instead of peach schnapps, use strawberry schanpps. Great stuff, guys, I promise.
Last work related thing.
I do have a bone to pick with people I work with about what they say and do around myself and other co workers I may be talking to at the time. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Pick a different damn topic if you talk to or even about me around others. I push people away enough without getting help from you lot so just stuff it. Good god people. I don’t wish to be unreasonable and drive my friends away, thank you. So just stop it.
But yeah. We’re supposed to be putting up Christmas decorations today, but with my mother and bro gone to Christmas shop for me, and dad having worked at the radio station this morning, who knows if it’ll happen. I wanted to pop into the second hand store today but I’m going to wait until Monday. I have other shit in town I could get done anyway.
It honestly seems so much like Sunday right now, it’s odd to think I have to work tonight.
In other news, I’ve got a few measures to this great song I’ve begun to write (on piano). There is a problem, though, in that I already can’t play what I’ve written and the left hand is going nowhere. And I still have this other bit of song that I can’t do anything with because 1, the music’s on the computer that isn’t working, and 2, it’s supposed to be on electric guitar and I can’t really go anywhere else with it because all I have is an acoustic guitar, and I can’t really play electric anyway. Frustration. If you’d like to help me out in some way you’re more than welcome, although if you steal my songs you will have nasty things done to you involving butt screwing and pitchforks.
Toodles. I have places to go and people to see. I lied. I have no life. I’m just getting bored.
