little me

Look what Kent found today and decided it needed to be hung up (in addition to my *original* Labyrinth movie poster, the Aladdin Sane poster I bought at the poster sale last year, and two art prints we bought the first time I visited for Valentine's day.  Little me has some interesting, if possibly shady company.  Our kitchen is...interesting).  So I decided it also needed to be a user pic.

Damn, I was a cute kid.  You never would know from that picture what was happening behind closed doors.  Never mind.  I was fucking adorbs.  And i *still* do that damned head tilt in, like, every picture.

I came home late because part of our relief didn't show up.  Why do I even think that is worthy of note any more?

Oh, yeah.  Because today, I STOOD UP FOR MYSELF!

It was determined that because we had three first shift people (for once) and one relief person was there, one of us could go.

I claimed it.  And when there was grumbling, I pointed out that a) I got there first, b)I don't take smoke breaks, so if I am not at lunch, I am on the floor, and c) both of my coworkers have bounced first when they knew full well I'd been there the longest.  Besides, I'm the only one who is at the mercy of the bus schedule.

As I was leaving, I heard "I am so sick of her and that damn bus."

Cue me whirling around and responding, "Yeah, and I am sick of hearing about car trouble, flat tires, getting stuck in traffic, your kids taking your car, and inclement weather.  I at least get here.  Buh-bye."

Luckily, Kent and I never *did* get around to opening the bottle of champagne for the UNC/Duke game on Saturday, so it is now the "Yay!  Alicia made it through the last four days without stabbing anyone!" bottle.


[ETA: in the time it took me to type this, they actually called to ask if I would come in tomorrow.  I laughed.]

I feel your pain with being at the mercy of the bus schedule. DX Fortunately my co-workers were not dicks about it, and management did their best to make sure I got out in time to catch the bus.

Re: champagne--when the bottle is empty you can then use it to stab somebody!! :D Possibly somebody asking you to come in on your day off!!

For once, the Comeback Muse arrived ON TIME! That almost never happens!

And thank you. I love having her hanging around. Maybe it's weird, but having that picture where I can see it regularly gives me a sense of...accountability? I know what's going on behind those eyes. I owe it to that fierce little girl to be the best older version of her I can be.
