I have created another coworker

Sherisse and I are now coworkers. She applied about two weeks ago, got interviewed, and started working last Saturday. Now we have another AFer working in a retail store in Los Angeles. Actually, I think we have three now. Sherisse and I actually don't work together much. Not yet, anyway. So far she just works Thursday and Saturday nights. I just work Monday through Friday, from nine to five-thirty. I only saw her for about half an hour on Thursday, that was all.

As of last Monday, we started a contest in our store. So far I'm in the lead. It's a little tough because I have a lot of hours. But this week has been a good week. So it was a little easier. Hopefully I win! If I do, I'll let ya'll know what I won. And if I don't, I'll tell you what I didn't.

This is gonna be quite a long blog. I've been working a lot. Currently we're down an associate manager and a store manager. All we've got is an assistant manager (who takes a week to do what the store manager does) and a lead associate. And I'm the only associate who can open during the weekdays. We have one who only work on weekends and three who close. One of the three can open, but usually it's me. So I'm up at nine every day from Monday to Friday, working eight hours a day. Then on Saturday I get up before ten to take my mom downtown, and then there's Sunday (no explanation needed there, right?)

It's getting late and I'll check in another week or two.

Nothing Left to Lose

Don't worry! The title of the blog actually is the title of Mat's new CD!!!!!! I was so excited!!!! It finally arrived on Monday!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, I already uploaded the songs onto my IPOD. I should probably put the CD in my car so I can actually listen to it. Ever since I got my IPOD, I don't listen to my radio much anymore. Or my CDs. Guess that's what happens when you get an IPOD.

Anyway, I saw the cutest thing on Thursday. I picked up my mom in Chinatown and then took her to the market so she could buy fish. While I was waiting for her, I saw these kittens (a gray one and a black one) in the parking lot next door. They were playing with these Duracell batteries someone had thrown away. It was so cute. One would pounce on it, then other would pounce on the kitten and get the battery. They'd pounce on each other to get the battery. It was the cutest thing.

Then this morning on my way out, there was a kitty digging in the dirt in front of someone's house. Maybe it found a gopher (or whatever those things are called in our neighborhood). It paused when I drove by. It was so cute.

Drive Thrus

So, two of the last three times I've gone to a Drive Thru starbucks defeated the purpose of a Drive-Thru starbucks. I walked in, bought what I wanted, and walked out. Funny cuz I keep saying how I'd like a Drive-Thru Starbucks here in L.A. Yet, there's this one by this place I take my mom every week. and the last two times I went there, I walked through, not drove through. Makes any sense? And the one time I did go throug hte drive-thru and ordered something, we didn't even have to pay! The guy just said he'd give it to us.


So, I tried LaDonna's and thought it was cool. Therefore, I made my own! Nough said. go and tell me what you tink. its late nite
