And how, exactly, did it get so.... Sticky? Leave me your thoughts, I promise I won't tell.

All in all, it was a fairly decent work day today. The customers were decent, my coworkers were decent, and the weather was decent. I couldn't have asked for more.....

Well, maybe there is one thing I could have asked for.

A tissue for the mustache guy who had a booger resting on the wee hairs at the top of his mustache. I couldn't look him in the face.

People who know me in real life know that I'm a super kind and sweet person that tends to be a little on the shy side. Every part of my being wanted to alert him to his situation, but I just couldn't do it!!! I couldn't bring myself to create a possibly embarrassing situation for him and for me.

I do hope he looked at himself in the mirror when he hopped into his vehicle to leave.

I got a text today from a random number asking if I was at work.

Naturally, I was skeptical and hostile toward it, immediately demanding the identity of the owner.

The response surprised and embarrassed me a little.

It was a text from someone who I had considered to be a good friend. We have known each other since middle school and remain in frequent contact via email.... etc.

It didn't take long for me to realize that, for someone who was supposed to be such a good friend, I hadn't actually spoken to her in person for almost 2 years. The last time I had even seen her was on my 40th birthday.

She was in town for a funeral and wanted to know if I wanted to do a little shopping with her. A part of me is a little hurt that she just didn't stop in where I was working to say Hi. The rational side of me knows that, if she had stopped in, she would have had to put forth an effort and actually followed through with the request. With a text, you have the gratification of "I tried to get in touch with you" without the actual effort. She knew the chances that I was at work were high, and probably not able to check my phone anyway, so a text to see if I was at work was pointless. It just gave the appearance of "I tried to get in touch with you."

I have known for a while that our friendship is fading. This just kind of gave me clarity on the subject.

There was a time that I told her everything.....

Now we basically exchange pleasantries and keep each other posted on our 's accomplishments. I haven't even told her that I recently broke things off with the boyfriend.

It saddens me a little to know my friend has become merely an acquaintance.

There is absolutely no limit to the therapeutic properties of a glass of wine.

How could I have forgotten this???

Bad day at work? Feet hurt like a bitch?? Relaxing on a much needed day off???

A nice glass of wine goes with EVERYTHING!

Hopefully I'll be able to get a good night's sleep for a change..... I'm feeling pretty good after 2 glasses of wine and a bubble bath. I just wish I didn't have to work tomorrow.

The Best Things in Life

#1 My .... Cheesy and cliche, yes, but 100% true. It warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face when I picked my up from school today and she exclaimed, "I haven't seen you in forever!" I dropped her off at school yesterday, but because I had to close last night, she stayed the night at her dad's house.

#2 My old green t-shirt. It is now so horrible that I think Goodwill would throw it in the trash, but I just LOVE this damn t-shirt. Mainly used as a sleep shirt, it is always in the first load of laundry I wash and worn that same night to sleep in.

#3 Sunny days. Need I say more?

#4 A good, heartfelt belly laugh. I've been battling depression for a little while, which means this doesn't happen very often anymore, but it's still on my list.

#5 A good beer and a juicy grilled steak. Yum! No wonder I need the gut-hider bathing suit.

#6 Watching 'Ellen'. She does amazingly kind things for people who are in need, her philanthropy inspires me.

Now that you've read my list, I'd like to hear a little about what's on your list. What are the best things in your life?

And.... Cut!!!

Yesterday was one of those days.....

You know those days. The day where everything that could possibly go wrong, does, and everything you attempt to do backfires.

By 11:30 am I was ready to hide my head in the sand and pretend the world didn't exist.

It probably wouldn't have been so bad had it NOT been the 6th weekend that I've worked in a row, or the 6th day that I'd worked in a row. The customers were bitchy, my coworker was working my last nerve, and my feet were hurting to the point it felt like I was walking on pins and needles.

My breaking point came at about the point that one of the customers had a fucking stroke over the fact that we didn't carry her seasonal (Christmas) Balsam home fragrances in April.

Are you fucking kidding me?

Who wants their house to smell like a Christmas tree in the middle of April?!?

It took everything I had to not yell "And CUT!!" in the middle of her scene and tell my coworker "It's a WRAP!"

Somehow, I managed to continue on with a smile on my face.

Definitely an Oscar winning performance. At some point, I will get the opportunity to witness these fucktards in their chosen places of employment. I only hope I get the opportunity to bestow upon them the same treatment and care they have shown me.

Be Kind to the Sales Girl

She is FORCED by her employers to cheerfully approach you and say "HI! Welcome to ". She could care less whether you buy anything at all, but her employers only care about whether or not she UPSELLS their products so don't treat her like shit when she gives you the rehearsed speech on the current sale items and what wonderful products they are after you tell her that you are just looking.

That speech? Not hers.... A team of executives sits around somewhere and ponders that speech for months before it is delivered to the lower echelon on a stone tablet as the Word of God. That speech is forced into her everyday conversations with practice demos and instructional videos she is required to take take part in.

She knows you could care less! She has no choice!

Most of the time, I really enjoy my new job. After working in an office setting for the past few years, it's kind of nice to work with the general public again.

Then I have days like yesterday.....

Days like yesterday reaffirm my belief that most people are fucking assholes.

To the woman who went out of her way to try and embarrass me for doing my job.....

You are a horrible person. I am paid well to approach you and say "Hi". It is my job to talk you into buying our products. When I say I'm paid well? I do mean it, and it is not commission based. You NOT making a purchase did not affect my paycheck in any way. By the looks of your outfit? And hair? You couldn't afford our products and used me as a crutch to save face in front of your friend. Sleep tight in the knowledge that I feel sorry for you.

Thankfully I have the next couple of days off. Time to relax, kick my feet up, and escape from the world.

working for a living? Fucking sucks!!

If given a choice? I'd be sipping frozen drinks under a beach umbrella on some white sand beach somewhere.

My boss was her usual bitchy self today. By the second hour I was there I was ready to stab myself in the eye just to get the hell out of there. The highlight of my day was watching the two elderly women gasp in horror as 'Salt N' Peppa' started playing on the store muzak, urging us all to "Push it REAL good".

Four days down, two more to go. Wish me luck.

The Gut Hider Bathing Suit

Ugh.... Took the to the water park today and wanted to rip my eyes out at the sight of myself in a bathing suit.

How on earth did I get to this state?

Four and a half years at my old job, that's how. It was a sit-on-your butt job that had a ton of free food involved.

I'm disgusted with myself.

I know I'm still cute, and still attract my fair share of male attention, but I can't help but feel ashamed that I've gotten chubby.

The recent warm, sunny weather has spoiled me.

Now that we have snow again I feel like I'm going stir crazy. I've never been one for outdoor sports. Don't ski.... Haven't been snowmobiling in years.... Not big on ice fishing....

Winter is pure torture for me.

It doesn't help that I've been in the process of re-evaluating my relationship with the boyfriend. I feel myself distancing from him, almost like I'm seeing him through new eyes and I'm not ok with what I see. The more I pull away, the more he smothers me with texts and phone calls, making the situation worse.

I have tried to explain to him that I feel smothered, that I need some space.

He isn't listening.

Perhaps I am one of those women predestined to be a spinster, meant to live my life with the companionship of 50 cats. I have been unhappily married.... I have been unhappily attached....

I'm struggling to figure out, what actually makes me.... Happy.

I've been binge watching 'The Sopranos' on Amazon.

What's even worse?

I'm starting to relate to the characters. It bothers me that Junior is getting senile and losing grip with reality. I felt bad when Johnny Sack lost his battle with cancer. Even as I sit here typing Paulie is being hauled out to see by Tony, possibly for the purposes of his being whacked.

Sigh...

I should really pick a better time waster than the criminal underworld.

My new job has me, once again, working with the general public.

It's a scary world out there.

A woman with a mustache gave me advice today on how to attract a 'quality man'. Apparently, as long as you can skin a deer and look good in camo while doing it you're golden.

I guess I'm screwed.

I don't own anything 'camo' and I feel a little sick at the though of skinning animals.

Maybe if I had the ability to grow facial hair......

Then again, I thank my lucky stars I don't have that ability!

A lot has changed since I was here last. It may take me a while to learn how to navigate around here again....

A lot has changed in my personal life as well. I'm still in the process of trying to navigate that too. I've missed being able to express myself here, anonymously, and the open, honest feedback I received in return.
