We went over safety and customer service and I got my ID. We did have hot dogs for lunch, and you know how I love hot dogs. :)
After orientation I had to go grocery shopping so I hopped in the car and went to the store. I was debating on whether or not to go back to Jenny Craige because my diet has gone off track. I can't however, afford all of the food (over $100 a month). I'm happy to say that I got diet food including fruit, yogurt and milk for under $70. So, I'm not sure I'll go back to JC again.
When I got home the doom and gloom of the day lifted and the sun came out. (Which is good b/c somewhere between walking in the gate and getting my ID I lost my unbrella). Considering I won't have much time anymore, I decided to go for a little walk. Well, a little walk turned into a 4 hour walk which resulted in take out dinner and 3 books from Barnes and Noble. (I had a gift card leftover from Christmas, so they were FREE!!)
Now I am beat. It was a long but good day and I'm looking forward to work tomorrow-9am. In the kitchen at the park. :)
And tonight, my city is shining bright and looks beautiful from my apartment.
I'm bringing my camera-just in case I can sneak some pictures, but don't count on it. I'm kind of a wimp so if they say we can't take pictures, I won't try to sneak them.
And now, it begins...

In a booming economy they are careless with friends and take advantage of the freedom they can afford, forgetting about those ordinary friends who stuck by them when times were tough. Instead, they focus on the caviar and fine wines and gorge themselves on filet mignon and tiny cakes until the wee hours of morning.

The smell of the earth thawing and a cool spring breeze, an UNEXPECTED visit from someone special, the roar of a crowd and hearing "it couldn't have happened to a NICER person". I need to pay my bills. New KEYS and rubber bands, clean forks and spoons. "That's the ugliest car ever" in a drunken laugh. Red eyes and unwashed hair, PEACH flavored lip gloss and a $10 bill. Old pictures in new frames and coffee in a FUZZY cup. Murder down the street, perp apprehended. BU rapist on the loose, no more walking at night. Wondering when and not caring why. That's a lie. I wonder. $100 missing this week, I could have used it. Why does it seem like it's more than before? NAKED in the mirror. Lights out, clean sheets and white NOISE. Window rattles, bad dreams and HOPES to come true. $77 a month THROWN AWAYI am too gullible, too nice. There's no such thing. Promise of company and laughter. I can not wait. What's the right decision? WHO CARES? It is what it is. I hate that saying, but it's true. Swordfish on Saturday and training too. Fenway, HERE I COME. Doctors appointments and prescriptions filled, make the ouchies go away. I yelled at someone yesterday and now I feel bad, but he deserved it, so there. Long day ahead, could use a DRINK with a friend. Or a hug. Yes...a hug would be nice, indeed.

Having a 2nd New Year's Eve is a blast with 2 silly friends and lots of champagne. Especially when you're sharing good news.
I like it when I make people proud. Except when I make them hate me too. But making them a little jealous gives me a tiny smile. ;)
Hen in a pumpkin is funny on Hells Kitchen.
I need a signature dish! I don't have one and I need one. I have no idea how to get one. Any ideas?
I might possibly have the best boss in the world-considering he's letting me change my hours so I can work at the park.
Getting a card in the mail for someone who cares about you is really a fantastic feeling. When you get 2 in one week-it makes you want to do cartwheels.
For the first time in 6 years I will not be able to make Rye Bread a special birthday cake and I won't be at her birthday party. My heart is broken.
Boys, close your eyes for sec: Only have a cycle once a year makes that one time utterly painful and horrific.
Ok. You can open your eyes again. :)
Sometimes you just need ice cream.
It's sad when men don't step up when they should, especially when it's regarding a baby.
I don't have DVR. I thought I did, and now I won't get to see the shows I love anymore.
Did anyone get pranked yesterday?

Instead, I pass this award to:
Brian, who never fails to make me chuckle, blush, smile and think. And the fact that he's hot doesn't hurt either. :)
Frigga, from Any Apples for her spunk and the beautiful pictures she shares with us. And also for humoring me with my 1 point.
Rick, the Palm Springs Savant because not only is he a generous, kind man, he's also a snazzy dresser who loves good food and good drinks. And art. Ok, he's just awesome and he makes me smile.
Thank you for making my day Mo by giving me this award, and thank you Brian, Frigga and Rick for always making me smile.
1. In order to save someones life you must do one of the following: Tap dance in front of 1000 people in a red satin assless outfit, eat 25 live cockroaches or stuff 5 bananas (no peel) up your butt. Which one would you pick?
2. What talent do you wish you had but don't?
3. You have the chance to be reincarnated as something other than a human being: What would you come back as and why?
1. For sure the bananas. Just kidding. Did I just get you excited? ;) Tap dancing for me.
2. I wish I had the talent to prepare meals on the fly out of nothing like they do on those cooking competitions. I'm a planner, so I wouldn't last very long.
Oh-and I also wish I had the ability to make men swoon.
3. I think wind. Not the kind that comes out of a banana eating butt-the kind that brushes the cheeks of people around the world.
ps. I have no idea where the "stuff 5 bananas up your butt" came from, but rest assured, I cracked myself up.

...Do you get it?!?
I'm back in checks-I've quit the cafe & am literally on cloud 9. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but working for this organization might possibly usurp my time at Disney...
And just so you know-I'll be seeing all of the home games from a VERY nice place in the sky.
(I'm still working a day job-this one doesn't pay nearly enough to pay the bills. I know someone would ask that question so I thought I'd just put that out there.)
