I kind of love this.

"The Lego Movie is showing at The Varsity this weekend."

"Date night!"

"Date matinee?"

"Yeah. And we should call Santa Pete."

"Brunch and matinee?"

"Yeah...wait. Is this what we call date night now?"

"We'll have sex afterwards."

"Okay. Date night."

This is the kind of stuff I need in my life right now to block out Lars' voice in my head. I LIKE my life. Yeah, it's weird and probably illegal in several states but you know what? Fuck you.

In other news, I started training on pizza line this week, and I kind of love it. I was dreading it (and going back to work in general), but I've been coming home all week saying "That. Was. FUN." Nic (my training guy) keeps yelling to whoever is manager on duty "Can we keep her?"

Which usually ends in M yelling back "I will cut you if you try."

It's nice to be wanted. Especially if I never have to set foot in the dough room again.

I found out that they will start hiring for openers at the first of next year. That gives me time to learn everything and get used to the idea of being away from Kent for 2-3 weeks at a time (which we've already established I don't handle well). It's scary to think about, but I REALLY want this. And Kent's okay with it.

So it's not fine dining. I would be working for corporate. But you know what? I can make amazing food when I'm AT HOME. And maybe that's the better option.

Jeebus, Lars, get out of my fucking head.

I'm so glad you have a job you love, and Lars is an asshat. <3 Also, if we had a discount theatre, that would so be us!

"Being away from Kent for 2-3 wks at a time"? Why?

And echoing everyone else about how your FIL is not fit to lick your boots. Ignore him (easier said than done, I know).

The job would be getting new stores up and running, which requires travel, frequently to other states. On the up side, it's salary and would be 2-3 weeks of hellish days followed by about four weeks off.

Four weeks off is good. My mother was a teacher for about 25 yrs. A few years into her career, the district decided to try year-round school. She really liked the schedule, because every six weeks or so the students and teachers got two consecutive weeks off. She liked that better than roughly nine months on, three weeks off. She actually found it easier to "recharge" and not tire so easily. Unfortunately, not enough parents liked the year-round schedule, and the district abandoned the idea after about two years.
