Do you know just how good fresh sliced turkey is? Let me tell ya, its frickin delicious. I wanted to actually eat food from work, and I was really in the mood for a sandwich. Since I had to slice a whole shit ton of turkey, there was some left over so I made myself a sandwich. I lightly toasted the bread, put some mayo on it, put a bunch of turkey, 4 tomatoes, and a small handful of diced red onion. Its awesome.

Anywho, the day was fairly slow. We did more business than it actually felt like we did though. I had a small amount of prep to do. I took my time doing it though. I got the two catering salads done for the party we're catering tomorrow. I won't be there, but I had to do something to help.

Joey came by with the fruits and veggies for the fruit and veggie trays for the Partner's catering order on Wednesday and Thursday. He also left a list of things he needed me to prep for the order. I had 6 1/2 pounds of turkey to slice {I just sliced the whole 7 lb turkey, thus having some left over}. I also had to slice 14.4 pounds of tomatoes {do you have any idea how many tomatoes are required to make 14.4 lbs?!} The last thing that required the slicer was the 13 lbs of shredded lettuce. That required shredding 11 heads of lettuce. Not the easiest thing to clean off a slicer. After that I had to count out 65 meatballs and cut them in half. Joey and Gary took care of the sausage and peppers and onions also required. There's acutally a lot more to prep, but its stuff that'll go bad if prepared too soon.

I'm so unbelievably glad that I don't have to go in to work tomorrow. I will be stopping by there though. By choice only. No requirement what-so-ever. I told Erin I'd stop by so that I can show off my hair. Its going to be slightly shorter and layered. Long layers, but layered none-the-less. And shorter than it is now. I'm also going to be wearing a shirt that will make it easier for me to show off the tattoo.

Speaking of the tattoo, I like the feeling of it being elevated. I can't wait till its completely settled, but I like being able to feel exactly where the different parts of the tattoo begin and end. Weird, I know, but whatever. Everyone seems to be liking it. I'm probably going to be going in in the next month or so to be getting the heart touched up. More color added to it so that its darker and more filled in. Unless you know tattoos, you can't really tell. But I can tell, so I'm going to get it touched up. It itches though. Obviously meaning that its healing, but I have trouble not scratching an itch. Its starting to piss me off. . . grr.

Alright I can't really think of anything else to type. I'll write again tomorrow.

One more day of torture
Sunday. 12.17.06 10:39 pm
I have one more day to work before I go on vacation: tomorrow. I'm off on Tuesday so that'll be a somewhat relaxing day. I can sort of sleep in, but not for too long cuz I have my hair appointment at 12:30. But I still have to get through tomorrow before I can think about Tuesday.

Tomorrow, I have to finish ordering the necessary things for the Partners order on Wednesday and Thursday. I also have the normal Monday shit to do. I have the Shamrock order being delivered tomorrow, but it'll be bigger cuz I had to order extra stuff. I also have to do my normal prep stuff. I'm not really looking forward to it. Its going to be a really long day.

Today was definately busy. We were supposed to have 5 people here today, but the 5th person called out sick. It the second time he's found some excuse in the last week to not come in. So much for being a reliable person. We were able to manage alright. The only thing that didn't get done on time was portioning out salad mix. But Tiffany and I stayed a few minutes later to do it.

After work, Tiffany needed to go to to WalMart to buy some Secret Santa things. She asked if I wanted to go with. I decided that since I had nothing better to do, I said okay. So I bought some new earrings and some Ding Dongs. I love Ding Dongs. They're awesome. And the earrings only cuz they were less than $5 for like a set of 8. And, of course, they were cute.

The tattoo got good reactions today. I think that Gary was the only one who saw it and didn't say anything. Everyone else liked it. Even Joe, who lectures about everything, complimented on it. However, he lectured afterwards about why it was a waste of my money. Whatever. I'm sure I'm not the only person who wastes money on useless stuff.

Its interesting taking care of it. I have to wash thoroughly with hot water and antibacterial soap and put A&D ointment on it 5 times a day for 4 days, today included. Which meant that I had to put some on twice while I was at work. I don't have an issue applying it that many times, but the location of the tattoo poses a small problem. Its right inbetween my shoulder blades. I'm just lucky that I can reach every part of my back. Its just slightly more difficult than if the tattoo were on my arm or leg or even lower back. Only three more days of having to do that. Then, I go to washing it with antibacterial soap twice a day and applying fragrance free lotion 5 times a day for 10 days. Two weeks total of intense care. Afterwards, I just have to keep an eye on it.

Right now it hurts whenever I lean backwards, causing the skin to fold, or when I pull the skin tight. I can't wait till that goes away. Or when I can sleep on it without it hurting. So hopefully at some point during the vacation, I should be good.

Anywho, I bought something that I owe to our very own Silver-Dot-. I decided that since I was going to be flying, I needed something to do on the plane. Rather than having to wait after being up in the air for so long before I can turn on my laptop, and then having to turn it off so long before we land again, I bought a book. I bought Twilight, to be exact. I should have plenty of time to get through a good chunk of the book during the hour long flight. And if I ever get bored during the vacation {which is highly doubtful} I'll have something to do.

Alright, I do believe I have other stuff I want to write. however, I am paying way too much attention to the TV. I'm watching How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. Its alright. But I'm paying more attention to the TV. {Five minutes later} So I'm done with this entry for the night.

Here ya go...
Sunday. 12.17.06 1:50 am
Since I didn't take the pics, the person who took them isn't that good at it. Though I'm not that terrific at it, I'll keep retaking the pic till I like it. I didn't want to make her keep retaking it. So this is all you get:






It hurt more towards the edge of the tattoo. I think what hurt the least {besides the small signs} was when he was shading the heart. It went numb after a while. I could still feel it, but I couldn't really feel the detail of the needles.

This tattoo is completely original. I did it all except the words. I chose what it would say, he chose the design for the words. I drew the rest. I know that next time I'm going to take it to a person who can draw it up their way. I'm not the best artist {obviously} but its only the second tattoo, and its all my own. I'm happy with it.

The only thing right now is the Scorpio sign. Its yellow ink and since the stencil is a purple-ish color, the yellow won't be just yellow until a couple days from now. The stencil will wash out in the shower.

I have to take extra care for it over the next week or so and it should be fine. Its going to be interesting taking care of it since I have trouble reaching that section of my back. But I'll find a way. As long as I don't completely neglect it, I do believe it'll be okay.

Alright I need to work tomorrow. I'm going to get some sleep. I'll write tomorrow after I get off work.

More stress, though not as much this time
Saturday. 12.16.06 7:09 pm
I did not want to wake up this morning. I am so used to sleeping in on Saturdays that my body and mind were just not wanting to function propperly. I woke up with my alarm, reset it for ten minutes later. Then when it went off again, I turned it off and layed there for a few minutes thinking 'I need to get up'. Finally after a couple minutes I sat up. I sat there for another 5 minutes staring at the clock again thinking to myself 'I really should start getting ready for work'. I finally got up and started getting ready for work.

When I got there I was still half asleep and it took me about half an hour to wake up enough to work propperly without screwing anything up. I was in a fairly good mood this morning, considering I was working on my normal day off. Maybe its just cuz ... actually, I really don't know, but you don't have to have a reason for being in a good mood.

We got our first order at 10:30am and we didn't get another order for two hours. It was slow for a while. Then the power went out. Although it was only out for maybe 15, 20 minutes, it completely fucked up out computer system. We were unable to complete an order on the computer. Which meant that we had to hand write all the orders. Also, since the computers weren't working, we were unable to open the register drawer. And the key to open in manually, was locked in the other safe. The only people who could get in there are the owners.

That's when people decided to come in and order food. It was a headache that we didn't need. It also caused me to leave two hours later than originally planned.

I was going to leave at 2 so that I could come home, shower, get my laundry done and nap for a couple hours. It didn't work out that way. I did, however, get home in time to do laundry. I needed to. I'm out of clean clothes.

There is one good thing that happened today. These two guys that work up at my bank came in to order food. They're both cute so me and Diana were flirting with them. One of them is cuter than the other, but I think they're both cute. Abel {I do believe I've mentioned him before} and the other guy's name we found out is Tino {not sure if that's how you spell it}. Abel is 23 and Tino is 24 so they're not too much older than I am. I'm gonna get my flirt on next time I go to the bank. Which is Tuesday. After Lance made a complete ass of himself, I went out and appologized for his idiocy, and told them that we {Diana and I} think they're cute. Tino said that that made him blush, and told me that I was more direct than expected. I told him that I had no reason not to be. I wonder what's gonna happen when I go to the bank again. Now the two questions are: Are they single? And are they interested? Who knows what could happen. Although, I'm not sure if anything is going to actually happen.

Anywho, I'm getting my tattoo in 2 hours. I'm excited. I just hope it turns out good. No, actually, I hope it turns out awesome.

Ya know, I feel fine working with Lance. Its kind of like old times. My only problem is that once I leave work and no longer have to focus on working, that's when he comes back into my mind. That's when I start thinking about how much I want him. That's when it bothers me. Hopefully, this vacation will help me clear my mind of all thoughts pertaining to wanting him. And have it go back to the way it was before. Then again look how unbelievably long it took me to completely get over David. I hope that it doesn't take that long for this whole Lance thing to blow over. Its good though that we're friends. I do like that.

Alright, I'm watching Gladiator right now. I love that movie. Its one of my all time favorite movies. I would have probably never watched it when I did if we hadn't been playing the score to it in band. As soon as we started playing the music to the movie, I got intrigued and decided to watch the movie. I'm glad I did. It was right after it came out on DVD. Back in freshman year I think, so 2000 or 2001.

I think I'm done writing for now. I'll be back later tonight to hopefully post pics of that tattoo. I'm probably write an entry under a different name though. You all know how I feel about writing an entry under the same name more than once a day.

Stressed, drained and slightly bothered
Friday. 12.15.06 11:32 pm
Today was just as long as I had thought it would be. I got out of there maybe a half hour earlier than I was expecting, but it was still long.

I woke up at 8am with my alarm, took a shower, got ready for work and left my apartment at approx. 9:07am. I got to work and clocked in at approx. 9:23am. I got myself situated {changed into uniform, got some water} and immediately started working. I had the choice between slicing the cheesecake for the $1000 order or to filter the fryers. Since I haven't sliced cheesecake in a while and I really didn't want to touch the fryers, I decided to slice the cheesecake. I had to cut 3 {12" or 10", I'm not sure which} cheesecakes into 48 slices. That meant that I had to score it twice {we have a thing that scores it into 12 slices} and then had to cut each of the 24 slices in half again. So basically I had to cut 144 slices of cheesecake. My hand still hurts a little from pressing the knife into the frozen cheesecake and its almost 12 hours later.

The catering order went without a hitch. It went as perfectly as planned. The birthday party that came in later that evening also went as well as it could go. The actually went pretty smoothly. It was just constant and busy the whole day.

I'm stressed because I want to make sure that I get everything done that needs to be done before I leave. And I want to make sure that it gets done efficently and propperly. The stress of that and making sure that my other stuff outside of work gets done as well; my appointments {hair and tattoo}, laundry, packing, getting rid of the food that could go bad in the two weeks I'll be gone, etc.

I'm drained because i'm putting forth so much energy. More energy than I'm used to putting forth. And putting so much energy forward in such a short period of time, making sure I have enough energy the whole time, can be stressing.

Now, I talked to Lance today and I found out that he doesn't like me in the same way. I asked him straight out. He's not bothered or weirded out that I like him, but he doesn't feel the same way about me and that's what he told me. He told me that I'm a really good friend though, so that made me happy. I was mad at myself for letting myself like him in that way. I was so set on not liking him, but it happened anyway. I still sort of want a relationship with him, but it's probably much better this way. It most likely would have ended on a sour note and that would have fucked up the friendship as well. I don't want that. Besides, I'm going to be moving in the summer anyway. I don't want to do another long distance thing. I like that we're going to just stay friends. It's going to take some time to get over him, and as long as I don't sleep with him {though I do want to}, then it shouldn't take me long to get over him. So its not really a big deal. I'm sort of bothered by it, but I'll get over it.

My headache isn't going away. Its actually slowly gotten worse over the last few days. Also, in the morning, I've been waking up with a bad stomach ache. Its usually gone by the time I get to work. But the whole time getting ready its there, making me feel sick to my stomach. Oh well. Its probably cuz I'm stressing. And when I stress I don't eat. But whenever I look at food, or even think about food, it makes my stomach upset again.

Today I had a salad and a couple pieces of fudge. That's it. Yesterday I think all I had was a few chicken tenders and a couple chips ahoy cookies. I don't remember on Wednesday. I'm not hungry. Like I said, though, whenever I look or even think about food, I get sick to my stomach. Whatever. I haven't completely stopped eating so its alright.

I just want this vacation to come. I need it. I need to get away from here for some time. Just completely shut myself off from the life I live now and take a break. I doubt two weeks will be enough time, but I'll have to make the best with what I'm given.

I'm getting my tattoo tomorrow; I'm excited. I'm tired. I think I'll be going to bed in an hour or so. I'll write more tomorrow night, and I'll have pics of the tat to post.

Minor Dilema
Thursday. 12.14.06 10:28 pm
So, uhm... Lance is going to be working at the restaurant again. This will be the 3rd or 4th time he's quit and come back. This is what I was afraid of. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to work with him. This could cause some awkwardness. Another thing is that he doesn't know that the most of the employees {if not all} know how I feel about him. And that they all think we're dating. When he came in tonight to see when he could start working, it was almost as though he was trying to not make it look as if there was anything at all. Erin and Joey both noticed the tension so they were good and didn't joke or say anything. Which I am definately thankful for. I doubt that everyone is going to act the same way.

Ugh!!!!!

I don't want our friendship to get fucked up. Relationship or not, we're friends and I really care about our friendship.

Fuck.

My headache is getting worse. The next 4 days are going to be the longest days ever. I have to be at work at 9:30 tomorrow morning and 9:30 Saturday morning. Tomorrow I'm probably going to be there for about 11 1/2 hours. Saturday I probably won't be there past 6, but that's only cuz I already had plans before I even knew that I had to work Saturday. And I can't stay late. Sunday, I have to work more on getting the orders put in for the catering orders they have on Wednesday and Thursday. Then on Monday we have to start putting everything together and finish ordering stuff for the catering orders.

I have 5 more days till I leave for vacation. And even though I'm off on Tuesday, I still have to do stuff. I have my hair appointment, I have to pack, I have to do other stuff that I can't really think of right now. Ugh.

I just can't wait till this next 5 days are over. My headache will probably not be completely gone, but it'll be more dulled out.

*sigh*
