Saturday was AMAZING!

Big Boss brought in donuts to celebrate the 100 on our health inspection, ANS she remembered I like pink frosted with sprinkles!  Turns out Paco does, too, so we shared.

And everybody think we're weird.  Okay, my eating habits have already gotten me labeled as weird.

The Bully called out for the fourth time in a row, so it was just me.  I could get used to this.  It gets a bit hectic from time to time, but it is SO much easier than dealing with someone who has a perpetually bad attitude.  Plus, I don't have to share tips. (Big Boss noted that I make more money when I'm working the dining room alone.  We'll have three people on the floor and have to split 7 bucks.  I work alone, and there's 20 or so ALL FOR ME)

I'd planned to buy dinner before heading out to the concert, but we were running one of those incentives where if you sell six cookies, you get a free meal.  And I sold 24 (hey!  Highly motivated by free food!).  Big Boss just rolled her eyes, uploaded $20 to my gift card (eared during the selling refillable tumblers promotion), and we called it square.  With my discount, that's....a lot of food.  I had "weirdo salad" before the show. and am bringing dinner home for me and the spousebeast tonight.  And probably have enough left for two more meals.

Between this and the metric ton of naan and hummus I bought Friday, I don't see me doing much cooking this week.  Which is good, because it is flipping HOT.  I was not mentally prepared for it to go from 70s to 90s like that.

(I could say that about decades too, come to think of it....)

Anyway, I left work Saturday, stopped by Light Years to replace the chain Kent got me for my birthday (I wore it ONCE and the clasp broke.  I think he was more upset than I was) and found...Erin the Baby Dyke!  We'd lost touch, and now she's working less than two blocks from me!  Yay!  We're going to exchange work schedules and get up to shenanigans on Franklin St. after work one of these days.  I really need that in my life right now.

I sauntered up to Carrboro, met an amazing busker (is there anything better than smooth sax on a hot "it's not yet summer, damnit!" day?  I lightened my tip money load a bit), stumbled across a pile of free magazines (all the better for my collages), and got the show set up in record time.  I am SO MUCH stronger than I was this time last year.  Last year, I was two months out from getting hit by that truck, and *everything* hurt.  This year, I was slinging amps around like I was born doing it.

It was a FUCKING AMAZING concert.  I am so lucky to know these women.  Dianne even played a song she's never recorded and rarely plays about her Meemaw.  She started it out talking about herr Meemaw and how difficult this is for her, but "there's a special woman in the audience--well, actually at the merch table--and I know she needs this.  Because I know.  And she knows."

I fucking lost it.  I could almost FEEL Granma there.

So, yeah.  Great night.  Great women.  Great music.

I am so lucky.

I'm glad you had such a great Saturday! YEY FREE FOOD! Ya know, whenever I worked alone I got better tips too, and not because I tried harder. There are just certain people who don't connect well with others.
