Today wasn't so bad. Well, getting up before the sun was bad, but at least I got some sleep. Spent all day at work trying to fill and rearrange the salads--tedious, but easy work--then showered and went to spend the afternoon with Corrinne. We went to Applebee's for dinner--I hadn't been in over a year--and then we went shopping at Zona Rosa, the new "Plaza" for the Northland. It was kind of weird; I hadn't been in that area since Mike left for California, and it brought back a lot of memories. But the best part?? There's a Hot Topic!!! I was a very good girl, and only bought a thing of Amy Brown's Fire Dance Incense. Even though they had Last Unicorn T-shirts that I really wanted. And Crow stuff. And Care Bears. But I digress. Corrinne and I talked about a lot of stuff--Faire, guys, relationships or lack thereof, or ones that should be but aren't, and had a really really good time. It was nice just to talk with her again. I hardly ever get to see her since we don't live together anymore. After we finished our window shopping (and making fun of teeny-boppers) we went back to her house and watched Peter Pan in Return to Neverland. It was cute and funny, I liked it. Drove home (the long way--I've got to learn to follow directions) and now I should head off to bed for another round of 6am festivities. Just keep thinking "They're paying me for this, they're paying me for this..."
Ho-hum. Work again today. WAY too freaking early in the morning. My alarm went off and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what that noise was. Kind of just stumbled around in a sort of half-daze most of my shift, managing somehow to be extremely productive. Bought my sister's birthday presents--a t-shirt, some recordable CDs, and a monogrammed wallet, since she hates carrying a purse. She liked them a lot. After dinner with the family, read the book I'm working on, The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown. You guys would love it--goddess cults, riddles, and the Knights Templar. Fantastic, and I'm only halfway through. Watched a taped show with my mom about wedding cakes; some of those creations were truly amazing works of art. I was impressed. Now I really must force myself to do homework, because the semester is almost over and it's due today. And I don't have to work tomorrow! Side note, it's Stephen's birthday; I'll send him an e-card or something, but I probably won't hear from him at all. *Sigh* I give up. I knew it wasn't meant to last, but I think I may be finally coming to terms with it. We'll see. But I still don't have to work tomorrow!
