Mood: Great =D
Listening to: Hang on.. I need something.. There – EclipseTen playing Diablo 2 with some people.. posted on Youtube. He had a video of the Beta of Diablo 3 a few days ago. I’m so jealous…
A new week has passed and I’ve been working. I’ve also gotten sick. Yeah, that happened last Sunday while I was at work. I was hungry, got an apple, ate it without washing my fingers first. Stupid of me, I know. I felt a scratch in my throat on Monday, Tuesday my nose started running, Wednesday I was even runnier, Thursday I started getting a little better, Friday better still, Saturday even better and today I’m good. Not all the way back to normal, but hey.. when will I ever be. I’m still sniffly, but not as bad as I was. Worst part is that it’s all caked goo… like when I blow my nose it comes out all pale yellow and icky. And what I caught up is about the same. But it’s better to get it out than keeping it in.. seriously… blarch. I’m pretty glad that, even though I did get sick, I’m getting better so fast. I think I only had a slight fever when I was at work on Wednesday. But it’s not the first time I’ve been working with a fever, feeling like death.. not that I did on Wednesday… At the factory I worked before I had to work… I could of course have called in sick, but then they would have been one person short.. and being the duty conscious person I am, I worked… did the best I could… almost coughed up a lunge in the process… but that’s how it goes sometimes. Sick Days are for when you’ve got something serious the matter with you.. not when you just have a cold… But that’s just me. I’m pretty sure people will be rawr at that, but it’s my opinion.
So… Less than a week till Christmas. My mom gave me money to get me something nice I wanted. Ages ago I bought 12 dinner plates, small plates and deep plates from the store I used to work.. and I noticed that, the store that started up when the other one went bankrupt had the same series, so I noticed them having serving-plates and -bowls, and I had mentioned to mom that I wanted the serving plates.. cause it’ll look really cool… But unfortunately it turns out that the series is discontinued and there were only two serving bowls left… so I got them… Oh, yes. Imma rock them! Thanks for the lovely gift, mom. I really love it =D
My dad gave us all our gifts when we were visiting, and I loved that too, dad. Thank you very much.
From my grandma I got a decorative tree thing… acrylic… with lights inside that changes color. It’s really cool.
From my brother I don’t know yet. I think I might get some Stephen King books.
OH!!! And when Jan got home from work yesterday I got a note from the post office telling me my MOM has sent me yet MORE Christmas gifts… O.o Whaaat??? I’ll pick it up tomorrow. Wonder what it is.. Yes, when I get it in the house I’m sure there will be gift squeezingness.
And then there is the movie today. We’ll be watching Santa Claus conquers the Martians. I’ll be starting drinking soon, so I won’t be too worried. Oh, yes. I’ve discovered that 7-up and vodka is DELICIOUS!!! Almost as good as Captain Morgan and coke… but yeah.. that will be my poison of choice tonight.
Other than that nothing exciting has happened. Except that I hate people.. lol. No, not really. But some costumers are really annoying when they get all buddy-buddy with you just because you’re nice to them. I mean, seriously. I’m nice to all my costumers. To think you get special treatment doesn’t make it so. If I REALLY like you I’ll give you that little bit extra, but mostly it’s reserved for nice, little old ladies. I made one of them squee on Saturday when I was at work. She said she was just a little old lady pensioner and I told her I didn’t believe for a second that she was old… and she squeed. It was kinda cute. The girl I worked with also told me something I had forgotten. We had worked together earlier and a costumer asked me if we had some specific candles, and I asked her how the candles looked and all that, and the more I asked her, the more excited she got… until I had to tell her that “sorry, we’re all out”. She, my coworker, almost pissed herself laughing… and when she told me about the incident, I almost did too.. I wasn’t aware that I was doing it.. like raising a persons hopes, only to dash them on the rocky shores of “sorry, we’re all out”… But the thing is, we have so many things that look alike, that sometimes you have to get to the bottom of what they are after to know what they are after. Like one costumer called us and asked if we had a “Kii-boward” (that’s the closest I can get.. remember this is in Norwegian). I asked her what it was for, I thought she was talking about a key-closet thing, which we don’t have. And she told it was to play on and that she wanted to talk to someone that knew what she was talking about. As soon as she said it was to play on I realised it was the cheap ass keyboards we sell, and I told her that, yes, we do in fact have them. So yeah, you have to have a thick skin working with people. Some of them can be really nasty. But then there are those nice, little old ladies that just makes your day. And not only them, really. Just a costumer that takes your joke and laughs… I was wrapping a lantern for a costumer. It was round and when I finished I told the costumer that I hoped the person receiving the gift didn’t have a volleyball at the top of his or her wish list, cause he or she will be very disappointed… and she laughed. I guess that’s what I really enjoy about the job. The interaction.
Well, I should start dinner. I’ll update if there is something worth updating with, but I doubt it.
