Bill Scream

You know your job is ridiculous when...

So I was totally right; got called this morning at 7am: "Can you come in for some Tinkerbell?" Well, I know they always call me first because I'm at the top of the seniority list, and my voice was kinda shot from last night, so I told Donnita something to the effect of, "Why don't you call the other girls first and then call me back?" (I don't really know what I said, I was still asleep.) Well, I didn't get a call back, so I assumed they had found somebody. Wasn't until 12:15 I get another call from Myrna: "Um, we're in desperate need for a friend of Alice for day parade, can you make it??" Mind you, this is an hour before I'm supposed to be there. So I rushed my ass through a shower and made it to work with two minutes to spare! Turns out that ALL THREE Tink friends called in this morning--Group 1, 2, and the Spare. So they pulled Jen from Teacups, which is why they needed me. Of course, if they had told me it was desperate this morning I probably would have come in, but as it is, I made 4 hours of overtime face pay.
Double Spectro tonight and It. Was. Freezing!! I was wearing five layers of clothing not counting my actual costume, and I still couldn't feel my feet. What makes it even better? Then fact that the second parade there was literally not ONE SINGLE GUEST from the Country Bears attraction all the way to step-down at Splash Mountain. Awesome. I got to wave to the pavement. And the other Cast Members who were just as cold and annoyed as I was. The whole situation was so ludicrous that I couldn't stop laughing. I laughed so hard I gave myself a coughing fit. Cripes. Was gonna watch my Inuyasha but I texted Tim a little bit lying down and now I'm tired. Sleeping in tomorrow!!

Don't Mess With Me

Day off. Got called at 10:30 to come in for UK at Epcot, but I said no; I don't think 5 40 minute sets outdoors in a British accent would be very helpful for my voice. Decided I was fed up with our disgusting bathroom and set about cleaning it. Now, you must understand, when I say clean the bathroom, I mean clear everything off the counters and pull out the little cabinet and disinfect and wipe down EVERYTHING. I even bleached the shower curtain and washed the floor mats. Missed a call around 2 asking me to come in for Pixie Hollow; thought about it, because I COULD use the money, but a) I wasn't done cleaning the bathroom; b) I had a lot of other things to do, like run errands and do laundry; and c) I was hoping to hang out with Tim tonight. Not to mention the whole voice thing still. So no 7th day for me.
Well, A and B got done, but C was a total bust. In fact, I haven't heard from him since 11:30 this morning; he just sort of stopped texting me back. I sent him 5 texts with no response; finally I just gave up. I'm really kind of hurt by it; I mean, if you don't want to hang out because you have something else you'd rather do, okay, but don't just ignore me. That's just mean. I hope he can get up by himself tomorrow morning, because I'm mad enough that I'm not gonna remind him. You know, I really thought we were making progress after the whole Valentine's Day thing. He spent time and effort thinking about me, and I really thought this could have been a turning point in our relationship. Turns out he's still just as immature as ever. Wonder what his excuse is this time. It's days like this that I wonder if he really feels the way about me that I feel about him. Sometimes I think it would be easier just to be alone.
Cleaned, ran errands, did laundry, watched Inuyasha. Might play some Final Fantasy, but I'll probably just go to bed. Castle Show tomorrow.
