I have been at the liquor store for less than 3 months. Yesterday, one of the managers came up to me and said I'm going to be in charge of the water section. This area includes our bottled water, sodas, juices, energy drinks, and possibly our frozen foods. The deli ladies will begin training me sometime this week.

It's not the beer section, but it's a great start. I am excited, mostly because I can come in and I don't have to be on the register all the time.

The floor banana is ready.

I'm still alive. I'm just working and gearing up for the holiday season. My new job is working out great so far. My co-workers are friendly, management actually communicates, and even the customers are pretty cool. I swear, liquor brings people together.

SO! That said, I won't be able to make my usual candy packages this year. I have a strict budget due to previous commitments involving one Socks. But I am planning on sending out holiday cards this year.

If you want a card from me, just comment with your snail mail address. All comments will be screened.

Austin folk, I will do my best to plan a weekend trip this January!

And Spec's is doing a background check on me. After that, drug test.

Then orientation.

And employment. With a family-owned company. Plus beer.

Bad news: still no sign of my HS diploma. I know it's packed away in one of these millions of boxes.

Good news: I managed to reduce some clutter in the closet. Woo!

I've decided to give up my cigar box collection. I'm keeping a couple for storage purposes, but the rest I might just sell on craigslist. But if anyone's interested in them for craft purposes, let me know. I have... quite a few boxes.

Also, I located a recipe that I was supposed to give [ profile] faetan ages ago. So for you, here's a recipe for easy Chocolate Mousse:

(Note: it's supposed to be a low-calorie version, buuut I threw that idea out the window and used full fat everything.)

3/4 c milk (it says use 1%, I say go for whole)
1 pkg whipped topping mix
2 envelopes fat-free hot cocoa mix (I used dark chocolate mix)
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
Whipped topping and chocolate curls for garnish (optional, but go for it >:3)

At low speed, beat milk, topping mix, cocoa mix, and cocoa powder until combined. At med-high speed, beat until fluffy (aboot 4 minutes). Toss in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Garnish with whipped topping and curls before serving.

There's a tiny ray of hope in my July work schedule.

Yeah, I work 6 days, but I get morning on Friday and Sunday with SATURDAY off. I'm going to go ahead and sign up for EVO on Sunday evening. From then on, I'll probably be spending a lot of time at Todd's place getting used to SSFIV. It looks like I just might be able to partake in my own legacy.

...Gonna burn some muscle.
dominochan: (huh?!)
That was odd.

This thing erased the cookies while I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF POSTING A COMMENT. How does that even happen?
dominochan: (maturity)
There's nothing like starting your day with This!

My co-worker was listening to it, and I don't know why, but I found it vaguely amusing.

dominochan: (does Ollie have to shoot a bitch?)
Damn, it feels like forever since I posted an update. It's FINALLY started to go back to normal at work, so starting tomorrow afternoon I'm back in full non-hiatus mode. In the meantime, I'm gonna share what I've been watching at work.

Chuck - Since co-workers are responsible for getting me into House and Psych, I counter with Chuck. The second season needs to start already. Okay, maybe not, since I'm trying my damndest to catch up. XD

Dexter - Season 3 is shaping up to be GOOD. Yes, I watched the leaked season premiere. Sue me. :p Seriously though, check it out if you haven't already.

Life - I'm surprisingly liking this one. Kinda annoying and quirky, but it has its good moments. I love how he's all WTF when it comes to cell phones.

Fringe - The X-Files for the next generation? Possibly! I'm keeping an eye on this one, because so far, so awesome.

Heroes - Just watched the giant season premiere. In all honesty, I'm a little worried about it. The plot has potential, but it's getting too convoluted too early. I'll keep watching and pray that my billion questions are answered. For the Jojo's lovers out there, listen for Hiro's Star Platinum impression! At least I think it sounds like Star Platinum...

That's all for now! See ya Wednesday!
dominochan: (Needs an energon keg stat!)
Round 1 of my hair project: Complete!

I left the dye on a bit longer, but overall it lightened my hair to a pretty, tea-brown. There were some lower parts where the dye didn't get along with a couple of grey hairs (for some reason, the lower parts are more resistant to dyes other than semi-permanent creams), but those will be tackled later.

Other than that, I'm done with my work for most of the night. I bought two Monsters so I won't crash and burn before my shift is over. I can't wait to get home so I can get some sleep.

dominochan: (Because Blink is a Badass)
I decided to make a new icon because Blink needs more love. That and she's a badass.

Anyways, did any of you ever have a co-worker whose very existence annoys the hell out of you? He/she can walk in the room and BOOM! Instant bad mood. I have a co-worker like that, and I hope by next month I'll be on a different shift so I won't have to deal with 'em anymore.

About ten minutes before I go home, the tech supervisor makes a beeline towards the bathroom...

Only to run out of there just as quickly.

He said there was a "fucking bird" (his exact words) in the bathroom. He refused to go back in there as he hates birds, so he had one of us chase it out.

I had no idea he hates birds. I may have to use this to my advantage someday. >:D
dominochan: (cfc twelve)
With all the hard luck and negativity in my co-workers' lives, I'm surprised I haven't developed diamond-hard skin and razor sharp claws like Penance.
dominochan: (cfc twelve)
I am currently the definition of bored.

I hate training new people. >:O

::huggles DS for helping her through a boring night::

We're out two techs and a dispatcher as of today. That means more hours for me. My aim for a second job is temporarily shot, but more hours = overtime... which means more money for me. :D I can shop for that swimsuit this Monday.

As long as I have Monday off, that is. XD

Also on the shopping list: 2 quarts of motor oil and more screws. And go to the car wash.
dominochan: (Ky doesn't like idiots.)
It sucks when you wait around for a radio show and 1. they start 5 minutes late every week and 2. the show kinda sucks this week. And then it goes silent in the middle of the song.

So I'm playing Breath of Fire II, and I spend what seems like one night trying to get enough money to buy weapons and armor in Windia. The monsters give out lots of experience, but a really pitiful amount of coins. Luckily I'm in a part of the game where I can level up and sleep for free near a cabin.

Why is it that right after I turn strangers down for rides, I get cell phone calls? A blocked ID called me about 4 times within a 10 minute period. Go away strange callers!

After this week I think I'll treat myself to a mini-shopping trip at Caesar's Palace. Oh, and aardvarks.

The aardvarks are plotting to take over the world.
dominochan: (Ky doesn't like idiots.)
Tonight's being busy and boring at the same time. Tons of calls, but the clock is moving slow, and people are being impatient. It's calmed down enough so I can post this piece of randomness.

@Tempest - I'm working on a sketch of the "new character" for DK. I hope to have it done by tomorrow. :3
dominochan: (kazuki)
At work we have:

-An almost full pepperoni pizza
-Mini sandwiches
-2 pumpkin pies with real whipped cream
-Cans of coke and sunkist
-Peanut butter fudge
-Magic cookie bars
-My peppermint bark
-Potato salad
-A veggie plate
-My secret santa gift (it's Avon bubble bath and lotion :3)

Oh yes, life is good.

I'd forgotten how awesome FF VII: Advent Children was. It made me fall in love with the game all over again.

Oh, and before I forget, I now work 10pm-6am. No more 10 hour shifts! Woooo!
dominochan: (Pissed!Al Gore)
How do you politely decline food?

Today my co-worker had me taste a Mexican stew with pork. It wasn't bad, but as most of you guys know, I'm extremely picky about my Mexican food. I did everything I could to thank her for letting me taste it, but I didn't want any more than that. No matter what I said, she wouldn't take it for an answer and still gave me some in a cup.

So it sits here, getting cold again while I have no desire to eat it. And I don't want to waste it...

Ugh, why doesn't anyone listen to meeee??

Oh, and the new Killers CD is cool. Not spectacular, but a good, solid effort.
dominochan: (veganess)
So I've found a new pasttime for these long night shifts:

Free Video Poker.

I gamble with fake money and see if I can score big. And it teaches me the rules of the game. Wednesday night I started with roughly 1,000 credits left over from a co-worker's slot game.

I just reached the 10,000 mark.

If only I could do that on a real video poker machine. Then I'd be all set.

I may try it sometime... on a quarter machine of course.
