Ten Things  
1. Today is the last day of finals. Hallelujah.

2. MySpace is proving to be quite interesting and Friendster, notsomuch. It's only taken me a day to find my major pet peeve, tho' - people really shouldn't be posting music in their personal profiles; it really fucks with whatever I happen to be playing. Grrrrrrr!

3. Man, Rivers Cuomo is cool. He should be my close personal friend.

4. Now that I think about it, I haven't done one of these 'Ten Things' lists in a while. I do them when I've got a lot of short, choppy things to say that just don't really justify an entry all on their own. But I bet you figured that out before I told you, so I just wasted #4.

5. Last night I had this wacky dream. In it, I dreamed that a gal named Tami sent me an email called 'Love and Doves!' in which she enclosed a draft of her new WoE story and asked me to look it over and make sure it worked for me, and to let her know any changes I'd like so that we'd never need to encounter each other again. HA HA HA HA HA. AS IF THIS WOULD HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE.
That wacky subconscious of mine.
Sadly? I'm not joking. I really did dream that.
I blame finals.

6. Liripipe. Man, that's a funny word. I can't wait 'til the History of Fashion test is OVER, man, and I can start thinking in modern terminology again.

7. The other day I had a customer ask me if she could test a Lavender Vanilla pillow mist. I told her that we didn't have a tester available in that product but there was a Lavender Vanilla body lotion she could sniff if she was curious about the fragrance. She then wanted to know why we had a tester for other pillow mists, but not Lavender Vanilla. I told her that the company dictates what testers we can make, so we cannot make them in every product, as it creates inventory issues.
Am I crazy? This makes sense, right? We have testers in every fragrance and we try to have each product type testered in at least one fragrance, so you can always get an idea of what you're buying without trying the actual product.
The woman then says "Thank you for your help, Sammie" nad I get creeped out because even when you're wearing a nametag, it is WEIRD to hear someone call you by name when you don't know them.
A bit later I heard her asking to speak to the store manager, but luckily Lisa had just left.
I bet that woman's going to make a complaint about me.
I hate customers.

8. Why is it that I am only attractive to men nearly twice my age?
And why does this not bother me?

9. Kitty says I'm turning into Jeannie. I talk like her, I act like her, but I have yet to develop a physical resemblance to her. This is funny, because I actually haven't seen or interacted with Jeannie in a long time.
It'd be much more on target to say I'm developing Seanieisms, like his odd pronounciation of 'sorry.' Souwr-ree. I'm souwr-ree, man.
I only use it when I don't mean it, like 'I'm souwr-ree I just insulted that butt-ugly poncho.'

10. So apparently American Hi-Fi and Bowling for Soup are going to tour together next year. I think I should like to see that concert. I can tell from the look on your face that YOU think it sounds lame, but I think it sounds like an evening of campy fun.
Current Mood: okayokay

I actually like American Hi-Fi and have a tiny itty bitty crush on Stacy.

Hooray! I'm not alone!
...well, I don't have the crush on Stacy, but it's nice to know that there's someone who won't go "Who?" when I mention that band. :-p

The musical profiles annoy the crap out of me too. Another thing I don't like about MySpace is that all sorts of random people will just add you...it drives me crazy. Give me your profile name and I'll add you. You can be the first person I actually "approve" as a friend!
Suzik00kaburra on December 15th, 2004 02:44 pm (UTC)
Luckily I haven't had any random weirdos friending me yet. So far I've just been the random weirdo. :-p
Just look me up through my livejournal email k00kaburra@livejournal.com. :)

What about me MJ? Add me you crazy cat! frootijen@mac.com.

Those damned bands annoy the hell out of me. They try to friend everyone.

i don't get what myspace is??
if i had your job, i would probably forget i had the name tag, be freaked out, and wonder all day, "how the hell did they know my name?!"

My Space is way better than Friendster...add me if I don't get to it first. frootijen@mac.com. The music people annoy the fuck out of me!

Re: ....>_<
You're the exception that proves the rule!

I still haven't received the D/C orders from three months ago. Is there any way you could get the order to me sometime soon?

Since this is my first order, I'm not sure what the protocol is, but I'm starting to feel like I'm never going to get my products =[ Thanks for all your help!
Suzik00kaburra on December 16th, 2004 04:00 pm (UTC)
Unfortunately I've not gotten anything from the post office so I don't know where things are. Let me see if I am able to replace the things you ordered; I think I should be able to swap for the items since it wasn't a large order.

Thanks so much :)
