Yay! He's back!

And he had a good time, thank the gods.

This year was the first year Kent come back from draft weekend with more money than he left with.  *boggle*  He won the poker tourney AND the gumbo cook off.  Go, spousebeast!

My "bags of dicks" totally backfired.  The guys thought they were fucking hilarious. I am now the second most favored partner of the draft weekend dudes (the woman who is a chef at the Biltmore who packed bags of various kinds of breakfast burritos is number one, and deservedly so).  So much for pissing them all off.

Whilst left to my own devices, I did such profligate things as a) binge watch Law & Order and the Food Network, b) read four books, c) buy five boxes of granola bars (they were on sale 5 for $10!  And they're my favorite!) and d) start a new crochet project when I haven't finished my current one!  *gasp*

Oh, yeah...and I got called into the office by Big Boss and got an unexpected, unscheduled 25 cent raise.  Go, me!  *happy dance*

I got to train a new hire this morning.  WHY do they do this to me on Mondays?  Seems nice enough, but I give her a week, maybe ten days.

Hopefully I'll be wrong.  But our turnover rate is pretty ridiculous.

Oh, relating back to my previous entry, IAN HUNTER IS COMING TO CAT'S CRADLE IN OCTOBER!!!!!!!  Kent was off today and spending his poker winnings.  We've been discussing the stunning lack of Mott the Hoople in the Rock and Roll Dice cd collection, so he decided his prize was a cd from CD Alley (All the Young Dudes).

Needless to say, we're going to the show, come hell or high water.

Happy Monday, y'all!  What did I miss while I was computerless?

Just like a bag of dicks to backfire, isn't it?

Congrats on the raise!

Why were you trying to piss off your husband's friends?

Because they annoy the fuck out of me. They're misogynistic, homophobic, and offensive.

But I have a personal rule that I have to tolerate anyone/thing who predates me, as long as it doesn't cause personal harm to me or the person I'm involved with. But I wanted to tweak their noses with the whole "eat a bag of dicks" jokes I have to hear ALL. SEASON. LONG.

Imagine Beavis and Butthead, only there are 11 of them. I keep my contact to a minimum, but they ROYALLY pissed me off this year.

So I rewarded them with novelty candy. Clearly didn't really think that one through.

Boo for the bag of dicks backfiring. How frustrating.

Oh, and I wish I had a nickel for how many times I actually start new crochet projects without finishing the current one. I have about three of them going at the moment. What's your new project? :D

Dish cloths. I have a metric ton of kitchen cotton in fun colors that needs used.

I also may or may not have been slightly drunk and didn't trust myself with a granny square. These things happen.

Who wouldn't want a bag of dicks?

I was told they were delicious. Best tasting dicks they'd ever had.

And the wonderful thing is that you can almost always find one, day or night. :)

AND I was told I need to do more computer training (which I should have done in my first 90 days. Love how organized this place is), after which it will jump rather significantly (like at least $1/hour).

Which would mean, given my current level of tips...I'd be making more per hour than the spousebeast.


And could still avoid the headaches of management.

Glad he is back!!!

My friend's son is named Ian Hunter, so whenever I see his name I think Ian is doing something important!!! Lol. He does, as he teaches Montessori school, but not on a national scale. Kids love him!

Your backfire is seriously hilarious. Thank you so much for being you and chronicling your daily life. It is something I look forward to reading about.
