I'm home much earlier than I usually am for a Friday cuz they have extra people there tonight and the need for me isn't there. Its also cheaper to have one of them stay longer than it is to keep me cuz I get paid a bunch more than the other kitchen people do.

Today I woke up and I was actually in a pretty decent mood. I knew it would be busy, but I wasn't going to let that get me down. Besides, maybe if I was in a pleasant mood, it would help keep everyone else from being down. Well, it lasted for about an hour. I was told that I have to work tomorrow night, closing. Its fucking bad enough that I have to close 2 nights already this week, but on my day off?! That completely depleted my good mood. And I was pretty lifeless the rest of the day.

It kept steady, Gary {who I'm not happy with right now; he's been lecturing and scolding me about everything ever since Wednesday night} helped me with a few of the prep things. It was appreciated, but as I said I'm not happy with him.

Anywho, on to a slightly happier note. David has been hugging me lately. He doesn't seem to have any qualms about it, and he's the one who's been offering them up. I haven't asked for one. Its really nice. To fully understand, you sort of have to know the whole story and I'd rather not go into it right now, but lets just say its been quite some time since I've not had to ask for a hug from him.

I haven't eaten anything today. I probably should do that, but I'm not hungry right now. I was earlier, but since I was busy I couldn't stop to eat. Even if I were to eat while I was working, I didn't have the time to make whatever I wanted. Oh well. I'll eat sooner or later.

There are some really good comedians on Comedy Central's Friday Night Stand-Up tonight so I'll be watching that. Hopefully that'll lighten my mood again. One can only hope right?

Alright, I don't know what else to say so I'll write again whenever.

Wine
Thursday. 2.15.07 6:37 pm
Today started out well. We had a wine class this morning at work. We got to learn about and taste the different bottled wines that we serve. It was slightly surprising cuz I don't normally like wine, but these didn't taste too bad.

We tried Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chianti and Pinot Grigio. I liked the Cabernet the best, though the scent wasn't the most appealing. But I was surprised at how good they all tasted. I now have a better idea on what kind of wines we serve.

Anywho, I wasn't as blah today as I was yesterday. It was pretty mellow business-wise. We had a bunch of prep to do to make up for the crazy ass day yesterday, but since it was fairly slow, I didn't mind the busywork.

I've got my normal Thursday night shows to watch in about 10 minutes.

Tomorrow is Friday and its probably going to be a busy one. Oh well. Its all to be expected.

Alright, I don't know what else to say and My Name is Earl is about to start so I'll write again whenever.

V-Day nightmare
Wednesday. 2.14.07 10:53 pm
Today started out with me waking up in an iffy mood. I wasn't mad or depressed, but I wasn't happy either. I was just eh. When I got to work, there wasn't a whole ton that needed to be done, but just the norm, so I wasn't too worried.

No one was expecting it to be busy tonight so I just prepped for a normal Wednesday. Ha! Were we all fucking wrong!

The night shift started and people just started calling and showing up.

Now, hold on a sec. Lemme ask you this: Since when did everyone decide that Valentine's Day was a pizza joint holiday?! What the fuck happened to going to a nice, fancy restaurant with lobster or steak or some shit like that?!

We tied our numbers with a Friday night. And we did it with half the staff that we usually have on a Friday night. At one point I had about 20 tickets and at least 2 things on each one. I was by myself {for the most part, cuz my 'help' doesn't know jack fucking shit about what her job is}.

Gary got pissed cuz I got behind so now he's telling me that I have to work two night shifts next week to 'refresh'. I fucking hate working night shifts and he knows it so I don't think this is just to 'refresh'. I think its punishment. Actually, I know its punishment; he's just not phrasing it that way. What-the-fuck-ever.

Tomorrow morning we have an alcohol/wine class that we have to go to. I have to work in the morning so its not a big deal for me. I just have to get up half an hour earlier than I would be. I get to taste the different wines so I'll have at least some alcohol in me. Maybe I'll be able to calm down slightly tomorrow.

I'm so tired right now, so I think that after I eat {I've been up since 9am, at work since 10:15am, got off work at 8:10pm and this is the first I've eaten today} I'm going to just lay down and pass the fuck out.

I've got plenty of other shit to rant about, but I'm just too damn tired. I'll comment tomorrow. I promise.

Yummy goodness
Tuesday. 2.13.07 6:06 pm
I went to the store to buy some V-Day candy, like I said I was going to do. I also bought McDonald's. I really wanted a shake and I prefer McDonald's over Arby's. I tried the grilled chicken snack wrap and I much prefer it over the crispy chicken snack wrap.

I'm now really full. But I was expecting that to happen. Shakes usually do that to me. Shakes are good though.

Damn, now I'm tired. I guess I was expecting that too since it was a chocolate shake that I got. The sugar is making me tired. Maybe I'll lay down in a short while.

I'm bored.

The second half of the dog show is on tonight. I love the doggies! Last night two of the three types of Poodle won best in their group. This means that the poodle has the advantage in the Best In Show. I don't really have anything against the poodle, but I'm sick of them always winning. Oh well. I can only hope that tonight one of the other breeds wins. Bill Cosby's dog is in the Best In Show: the Dandie Dinmont. Its a cute little dog. It has huge eyes.

Alright, I guess today is one of the days that I don't have much to say. So I'll write again whenever I have something to say.

Half hour
Monday. 2.12.07 7:03 pm
The title is significant in two ways.

The first being the fact that that's how long I had to get ready for work and to be there. Not because I was running late or anything, but cuz of Gary. At 9:25am {5 minutes before Gary had to be at work} Gary text messaged me asking if I could be at work by 10 cuz he had just woken up. He lives on the other side of town. Now, it takes me about an hour to get ready for work. So, yeah, I do live right across the street from work, but I need time to shower {20 minutes}, let my hair towel dry {10 minutes}, put my hair up for work {10 minutes}, and walk to work {10 minutes}. That's a total of 50 minutes. {I get dressed and brush my teeth while my hair is drying}. I managed to rush and get there at 10:05am.

Then I was rushed to get everything done that the manager is supposed to do before we open, as well as writing checks for the venders that delivered out beer and soda. Gary got there shortly after 10:30am. So the morning was rushed, but then it slowed down.

I had an awesome salad today. Romaine lettuce, grilled chicken strips, croutons {of course}, wing sauce {we make it ourselves and its delicious} and ranch dressing. It was awesome! I think I'll have it again on Wednesday.

I'm off work tomorrow and I'm thinking about going out to buy some V-Day candy. I was going to buy it today after work, but Gary's text rushing me to work prevented me from remembering to bring money with me. Oh well. Its supposed to be mostly cloudy tomorrow so I'm not going to be in the hot sun.

Anywho, the second is the fact that I only have half an hour to write this entry {which shouldn't be a problem} until The Class comes on. Then afterwards at 8, Heroes is on. After that, at 9, is the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show! A two night event that only happens once a year. I love the doggies!

I'm sorry I won't be able to comment tonight. I'll be paying too much attention to the TV to completely focus my attention on your entries so I promise I'll comment tomorrow.

Till then, I'm done with the entry and I'm off to get food. I have 8 minutes to heat something up.

I wanted to just throw something
Sunday. 2.11.07 7:11 pm
That's how I felt this morning when I got to work. When I looked to see what needed to be done today, it seemed as though nothing was done yesterday. Our prep list was 2 1/2 times longer than it normally is. I was pissed. I just wanted to pick something up and chuck it as hard as I possbily could across the length of the back kitchen. I didn't cuz then it would have meant I had to clean up whatever mess it would have made, but I came close.

Well, I got a couple things done before we opened and when I opened the doors there wasn't anyone outside. I was like 'oh thank God, no huge ass group of people'. Low and behold not even a minute later people just seemed to morph out of nowhere. The chime that signified a door was being opened kept going off and like 5 families of more than 4 people each came in. I was like 'where the fuck did ya'll come from?!?!' That took up about 45 minutes of our precious {and limited} prep time.

Once the lunch rush was over, it remained steady for most of the rest of the day. There were maybe one or two small breaks inbetween groups of people, but not long enough to get a large amount of prep knocked out. Most of it got done before the night shift though. I think only the freezer stuff was left. And a majority of that got knocked out before I left {and hour later than normal}. I can only hope tomorrow isn't as crazy as today was.

Anywho, I didn't realize just how much I wrote yesterday until looking at it just now. I guess I had a lot to say. So kudos to those who read all the way through it.

Tomorrow is the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show!!! It comes on right after Heroes; which is good. I'm okay with missing Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. But Heroes I have to watch.

Alright, I don't really have anything else to write about so I'll write tomorrow.
