Out wit.  Out play.  Outlast.  That's the theme for today's shift at work, my lovlies.

Buh-bye, Bully.  I don't know if she quit or was fired, all I know is she is off the schedule and out of my hair.

I also know next week is gonna SUUUUUCK, because I'm doing six days again, and will be flying solo for most of them.  Ack!  I guess this is what happens when you're the only non-manager with the most seniority. (Scary, ain't it?)

Hey, but the days I fly solo, that's ALL THE TIPS FOR ME!  I'm gonna buy myself something nice.

Okay, I'm probably going to buy another Loot Crate, but that's sort of the same thing, right?

I got my Firefly crate this week, and it.  Is.  Awesome.  I used to love the grab bags at Spencers and the flea market when I was a kid.  This is the same principle, only much, much cooler.

Embossed faux leather Firefly journal!  *squee*!!!!  I don't know if I'm going to use it or just fondle it.  I have the perfect sepia toned fountain pen to write in it.  However, I have a bunch of notebooks ahead of it because 'tis the season for cool notebooks and pens, and I am a school supply junkie.

I may have squeeeed when I saw the journal in my box, too. I'm having to be thrifty about lootbox and not get it every month anymore, but I refuse to give up the Firefly box! :)

Plus the next one is "A Leaf On The Wind" - how can I NOT get it?

That's what so tough for me this time of year. All of the back to school sales make for ridiculously cheap pens. :)

I work in a big box store, and my usual route to and from my locker in the back room takes me right through the school supplies. I call it running the gauntlet. I need to purge pens and bring some in to work, not buy more!

So your work is kind of like Survivor. :P

(I named my kids after two Big Brother US contestants, I totally get references like these.)

Oh, yeah. This week feels like one of those reward challenges: make it through until 2:30 (or whenever. I've given up assuming I'll ever be out of there when I'm supposed to), and I get comfort.

And by "comfort," I mean booze, mindless television, and sleep. Not necessarily in that order.

I need to contain myself this year with the school supplies because I really cannot buy any more...no room!

I so know the feeling when a bulky or slacker is finally gone at work. I think I resisted the urge to turn cartwheels in the dining room when my poisonous ex-day baker was shown the door. Good riddance.


Boo to longer and more shifts solo, but YAY FOR ALL THE TIPS!!!

Isn't it a wonderful feeling when that pain in your ass is gone? Mine wasn't a bully exactly, but the day she moved out of my department to another one I was DAMN HAPPY!!!

We still work in the same building, however, I hardly ever see and that's a very good thing.

Love the Survivor reference :)

Glad to hear that girl that was being a bully to you is gone. Hopefully, she did get fired rather than quit (I'm a bit vindictive)

Here's to making a lot of money in the next week!
