People in California are funny. Or maybe it's just now that I am in California, people are funny.
Anyway, I've actually been sort of on-again, off-again composing this post for a while, but it takes effort to think of 'nyms for everyone that I will remember in the future. And I have met a lot of everyones in the past nearly-two months. Like*, seriously. A lot. But a recent conversation with the leader of TK kind of nudged me to finish the job so that I can prove my point (next time we hang out, I'm taking notes).
Curly: "I'm playing with pigs. I don't think I have any pride."
Christopher Robin: "I feel like you have to show your 'Mormon Stick' before they'll even let you into Utah."
Christopher Robin: "[Katria]. Now do you understand why everything you say should be a Hallmark card?"
Christopher Robin: "You're quiet for like 10 minutes and then you open your mouth and everything that comes out of it is hilarious."
Katria: "You do look like you're from Utah since you're walking around with 3 girls." Christopher Robin: "You just made the joke I have been thinking all day. I can't believe you said that!"
Christopher Robin: "I have the legs of a Greek god. I may be missing a few other things, but my legs are beautiful."
Christopher Robin: "Verbose is just a nice way of saying he won't shut up. Nice try, though."
Rip Torn: "Mater's eyes are hypnotizing. I bet if you watch them long enough, you'll turn redneck."
Katria: "It's Brigham Young University." Bartholomew: "Did you say 'Bring 'em young?'" Katria: "No, but that is very fitting."
Katria: "I watched some seagulls poop on the picture." Doc: "Did you capture the magic?"
Christopher Robin: "If I were related to Kohler, I wouldn't do anything except sit at home on my porcelain throne all day."
Christopher Robin: "I'm proud of the fact that people think of me in their most vulnerable moments"
Captain: "I know there're people in Africa, but there's a lot of work to do."
Geri: "What mountain is that?" Katria: "[Geri], that's a tree."
*As a side note, I'm trying to limit my usage of "like." It is such a Utah word to say, and I've noticed recently (like, as of Monday) that I say it way too much.
(When all else fails for creating Titles, I can always count on Hoops and Yoyo.* This time the title comes from my adorable Hoops and Yoyo perpetual calendar. Which talks to me. Daily.)
Just a few thoughts from my day. And pardon me if they're all disorganized and random, but I'm tired and about to fall asleep.
1) Waking up because the smoke detector's battery in the hallway is dying is really uncool. Coming home from work to find that the battery hasn't been changed yet (even though management has been told about it and it is, supposedly, their responsibility to fix it) is even more uncool.
2) When I went to Target to find some 9v batteries (to replace the dying one, you know), I found Muppets from Space on DVD for less than what the batteries cost me. I couldn't pass up such a good deal. Rizzo, I will love you until the day I die.
3) Chopsticks are so work appropriate. So nyah. (This is the sound of me sticking my tongue out, if you are wondering. Someday I'll have someone spell out my tongue-sticking-out nouse phonetically, because this one is not accurate.)
4) We played BINGO at work today. That was kind of awesome and made the time go by a lot faster. I was winning when I left, but I have a feeling that some of the people who still had a few hours left on their shifts probably got black-outs. Considering I only worked 4 hours, though, and also considering the fact that we didn't start BINGO until half-way through my shift, I think I did pretty well. Also, there were TOPS coins involved (which, admittedly, means basically nothing to the vast majority of my readership. Sorry. Just accept the fact that I am awesome).
5) And last, but not least, it was Family Reunion Day today! Today marks the second time in the history of my career that my whole training group has been working in one location at the same time. It was almost perfect. We just needed our Favorite Trainer there with us, and then life would have been complete.
*Dood, I never said my titles would have anything to do with my posts!
Remember those fun times the other day when the handle on our refrigerator broke off (partially)? Well, now let's just remember those newer fun times when yours truly found the smarts and know-how to fix it! All by myself, too.
So, like... our fridge handle fell off. Well, half of it did. I mean, that's cool, right? Sure, we keep wacking ourselves in the face pretty much every time we go to get some food or a drink, but at least it is all stainless steel and stuff.
Meanwhile, as I am thinking pretty definitely of staying on at Disney after my internship is over (granted, this is still like... 6 months away or something), I have started looking into housing. I've found this one place in Anaheim that's like, way nice looking and brand spanking new and I think I really want to live there. Problem is, living anywhere in California, especially when you want to live alone and not have to deal with the whole roommate thing anymore, is very expensive. So if anyone wants to donate to my cause, I won't say no. I also won't forget about you.
And my brownie cake is done now. So, you know, I'm going to go take care of that.
P.S. I've also finished seasons 1 and 2 of NCIS. I am now accepting seasons 3 and/or 4 on DVD.
A month ago today I moved to California. Hard to believe it has already been 30 days! Yesterday I had my 30-45 day interview/review thing. It was kind of awesome. Mostly because they were sending me home early on account of rain. That part was awesome.
Also, as you know, NCIS arrived for me yesterday. That was really awesome of it. (I've already watched 9 episodes. Pathetic? Probably.)
Then this morning there was supposed to be this whole working thing at 9, which meant leaving at 8, which meant waking up just before 7. So I did (wake up, that is), and put my face on and all that, but then I looked outside and I'm like, "Oh. It's very wet out there. I bet I can go back to sleep and be paid for it!" And sure enough. One phone call later I was nestled back under my blankets and being paid for 4 more hours of sleep. (For the record, I did actually sleep all four hours.)
So, yeah. Life is good. I have an awesome farmer's tan and I get to hang out with hilarious people all day. Can't beat that!
