I got a toaster oven, awwwww. One of the big ones that you can cook actual food in and not just toast. :) This means in the summer when it's already hot as hell, I don't have to heat up my entire apartment just to cook one little thing.

Cool story (this seriously just happened): Woman in the library asks me if I have a cell phone. I tell her no because wtf, I'm not letting some random person use my phone, even if it is a cheap piece of crap; it's the only phone I have and you can go to the front desk and ask to use their phone, okay. Five minutes later my mom calls me and ofc I forgot to put it on silent.

ALSO LADY QUIT ASKING ME STUPID QUESTIONS LIKE WHERE IS THE NEAREST AIRPORT, BECAUSE A) JUST FUCKING GOOGLE IT, AND B) YOU SEE I HAVE EARPLUGS IN THAT MEANS I WANT PEOPLE TO LEAVE ME ALONE BECAUSE INTERNET. This always happens to me too, I just want to be left alone goddammit, quit acting like I'm being paid to help you.

I have nice eyebrows? A lady complemented me on them yesterday. Random but I'll take what I can get, lol.

I've been sick off and on for over a month now and really, why is it always the busiest time of the year when my immune system betrays me :(

EPIC WORK DRAMA the so-called chef is fired woooooooooo. His drama queen stupid lazy shit starting wife is still apparently working here so booooooooooo but at least I don't have to deal with her very much so whatever.

COOL STORY; My apartment had the electrical outlets upgraded last week, and the next day, I got home from work and the only things in the kitchen that were working were the stove and the microwave. No lights or anything else. I flipped the breakers and the lights didn't come back on, so I called maintenance. And I told them I already tried flipping the breakers. They sent a guy up, and he had absolutely no equipment with him. He went straight to the breaker box, flipped the breakers, and muttered a puzzled "huh" when the lights failed to turn on.

YEAH, NO SHIT, I didn't do something stupid like plug in fifty appliances that caused the breaker to trip, your electrician bros fucked up the wiring in my kitchen, jackass.

I burned myself four times since last week, twice in the same place. Today it was hot bacon grease, and I can see the drizzle patterns it made on my arm. (I don't know if I ever said but besides doing all the baked goods that we sell out front in the deli, I also handle all of the breakfast catering orders, so. I cook a lot of bacon lol. Also ended up coming in at 3 or 3:30 every day last week, will continue to do so this week. Next week will be absolutely dead as far as catering goes, and I will be very thankful to return to my regularly scheduled job.)

ahhhhhhhhhhhhh My laptop is heeeeeere and it works! I can take it to the library and use the wifi now instead of the public computers!

The keyboard is bigger than my old one, and the delete key is in a different place so I keep hitting the page up key instead. NO I DID NOT WANT TO DO THAT.


FYI I got it from Usedlaptops.com

ALSO THERE WAS A GAS LEAK WHEN I GOT TO WORK THIS MORNING (at 4 AM, the general manager wasn't coming in until 6). WHY DOES THIS STUFF ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME I SWEAR. And then it was because some shithead left a burner on the stove on. The stove is ancient and the pilot light doesn't work; you have to turn on the burner and light it with a cigarrette lighter. Maybe now that the fire department and the gas company said we need a new damn stove, the stingy owners will actually get us a one.

About a month ago, I bought something from Amazon (first time in years that I've done so) and I signed up for the free trial of Amazon Prime so I could get free three day shipping. Course I was supposed to remember to cancel Amazon Prime so they didn't debit $79 from my bank account after the free trial ended. WHICH I OBVIOUSLY FORGOT TO DO, FML. OH WELL, I GUESS I'M BUYING MORE STUFF FROM AMAZON THAT I WOULD ORDINARILY BUY FROM WALMART FOR THE NEXT YEAR.

So, uh, there was this thing that happened back in 2004. Or it may have been 2005. Whenever. I had a computer, with lots and lots of my writings on it; fanfics and original stuff. Well, it crashed, and I lost it all. Devastating, I know.

WELL, not long ago I found a box in my closet. This box was labeled "desk stuff", and for some reason that is unknown to me, for the last three times I have moved, I just never unpacked it. Could be that I didn't have a desk in which to put all this "desk stuff", and so I just put in the closet and forgot about it.

In this box of desk stuff, there were some floppy disks. (lol the 90s lol) One of them was labeled "stories". My brain went !!! and I popped it in, hoping against hope that it wasn't corrupted--and it wasn't. It's a goddamn Christmas miracle, I tell you!

Sadly, it didn't contain all of my writings, just the one epically bad first novel attempt and some of my old high school essays. None of my old fanfics, or the other story I was working on. It is now safely stored on my laptop and flash drive. Perhaps one day bits of it will see the light of day, but for now this is just a cool story, bro.
