So I watched CVS videos for an hour. I learned all about the "Eye, Hi, and Help" approach to customers that all loyal CVS employees must follow. And I learned to say "NO" to sexual harassment. Tomorrow I'm supposed to show up at 10AM to get my name tag, and learn how to use the cash register and "other important procedures". And this will take until 4 in the afternoon. Oy.
Nothing else to report, since I'm here all alone with Ms. Hayley ... and she's pretty quiet.
My new favorite show is on tonight ... "Newlyweds" with Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. I can't help it ... I have a soft spot in my heart for Jessica. She's the poster child for Spoiled Princesses everywhere, and by damn, she won't deny it. She freely admits that she's spoiled. And she likes it that way. Heh. Also, she burps out loud just like my very own precious princess, Emilie. :-)
Here's my favorite bit of dialog from the show (so far!):
Jessica (eating from a white bowl): "Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish?"
Jessica: "I know it's tuna, but it ... it says chicken."
(Even longer pause while Nick stops watching TV to stare at her)
Jessica: "Of the sea" (giggles)
(Nick's still staring at her)
Jessica: "Is that stupid?"
(Nick looks down at his bowl, glances forward and then turns his head to stare at her again. Another pause)
(Nick shakes his head)
Jessica: "Don't make fun of me right now, I'm not in the mood."
Nick: "You act like you've never had tuna before!"
Jessica: "I've had tuna fish... like sandwiches and stuff... like this."
Nick: "You and I have eaten tuna like this before."
Jessica: "Why is it called 'Chicken by the Sea'? Or "In the Sea'?"
Nick (with a smile): "'Chicken of the Sea' is the BRAND."
Jessica (quietly): "ohhhhh..."
Nick: "You know, because a lot of people eat tuna. A lot of people eat chicken. So it's like 'the chicken of the sea'."
I'm sure you see now why I am hopelessly addicted to watching these two find their way through the first young year of marriage.
I told you before ... don't you be jealous of my social life!
