"Its bad when you annoy yourself ..."

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?"

(Long pause)

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)

Jessica: "What?!"

(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!

Thought For Today:
"Don't think of it as getting hot flashes. Think of it as your inner child playing with matches."

I hope you're not comparing me to Jessica Simpson....
I've watched that show once and was amazed at how baby like she is and how little she can do for herself. I really hope that other people don't see me like her. That would not be right. Well, I'm in between classes now and I'm really bored and really tired. When I woke up this morning and I rolled over and actually said, "I'm so tired", and of course there was nobody there. So I felt kinda stupid. And then on Monday, for some reason I decided to reach for my alarm on the opposite side of my bed and ended up hitting my laundry hamper a few times before realizing that it wasn't my alarm....and then I felt kinda stupid too. But anyway, I think that's a sign that I'm too tired. But then again, I take naps during the day and go to bed at a decent hour....the same time everyone else around here goes to bed....1 or 2. Oh well, I've just accepted that I'm gonna be tired most of the time. We had to get parking tags for the reserve because there are too many people taking up parking spaces that don't live there, so guests are supposed to park far away where not many people are parked and only people with tags are supposed to park in front of the buildings. We'll see how well that works. Well, I'm gonna go outside now because I'm kinda cold and I want to lay in the sun. I hope your first day at work went well! I love you very much!
Love, Emilie

Well, ya silly. Of course I know that you're not babyish, and that you can take care of yourself. Although the way her floors looked with clothes everywhere DID remind me of your room. But I really don't think people would think of you when they see Jessica Simpson's behavior. Until they hear her burp, anyway. :-)

Sorry you're feeling so tired. Consider this your Mom Reminder to take your vitamins every single day!

I love you! xoxo
