Honey Why You Calling So Late?

Look! I'm here!

I've not dropped off the face of the earth, I've just been a vacation of sorts, I guess you could call it.

The good news is I am still making all A's in my classes and am coming along quite nicely...the bad news is i have hardly a moment to myself. But I'm getting the hang of it.

There are some interesting developments, and news I suppose. First, I've been promoted at work. Bet you didn't know there was an upper eschelon of waitresses, did you? I am now what we call a "certified trainer" which means they give me the new people and let me train them. Its a pretty big deal since the company policy is you have to generally be there a year before you're allowed, and I've not been there a year. Either way, its nice. And when I train I make more than my measley $2.15 an hour.

Work keeps me busy. Life at work has become less stressful than school, but more interesting as time passes. I have an admierer...her name is Daffy [for her big daffy eyes] Rogue gives me hell to know end about her. I usually retort somethign to the effect that she has girls lined up around the block for her. When I've got that propblem to she can make fun of me then....goodness.

Yes, Rogue and I are still on happy, nice terms. She's a sweet girl. I think she's gotten the idea of joining the military for scholarship moeny out of her head - which is good, I'd have freaked out had she gone. She's not even a war supporter, she just wants the money. But she is getting stressed thinking about college. I feel for the poor girl. I've been attending her vollyball games, its good fun. I also met her mom, who seems to like me despite all my flaws, which i appreciate. Then again, she doesnt know I like girls yet, either, we're holding off on that one until Rogue gets all of her female stalkers under control....

Beloved and I are blissful still, which is good. Our 5 year anniversary is coming up in November and I am very much looking forward to running away with her for the weekend.

In other announcements NaNoWriMo is coming up, and I think its a good idea to remind everyone, since we had so many winners, and fabulous writers, in our group. I've already got my story idea picked out, now all I have to do is find time to write...haha. Lots of midnight write ins for me, I think.

At the top of my current playlist:

1. Lips of an Angel, Hinder
2. London Bridge, Fergie [bite me]
3. Napoleon, Ani Difranco
4. My Buttons, PCD feat. Snoop [again, bite me]
5. Como Estas, T-Pain

Right, so thats me in a nutshell.

I miss you all so much. I am reading, I've just not the time to comment.

Hey you!
I've been a delinquent blogger too.
Everything sounds like it's coming up roses.
Congrats on your trainer status.
Nice to see you, gal!

hey tiger - it's great to hear from you, and good to hear that you're doing okay (all 'A's? nice work!)

Nano? already? say it ain't so!

Hey Hey Hey!!

Nice to see you back for an update and glad to hear everything is going okay too.

$2.15??? That's a joke right??

Yay! A post from Aleycia. It is a good week indeed.

With work and school and a home life, I can imagine you have your hands full. I'm not sure how you'll make space for NaNo, but as I recall, you are a superfast writer.

Adem - that wage is pretty standard for waitresses in the US. This is why tipping is also pretty standard. My College Friend who was here from London kept commenting on how friendly and nice the waitstaff is to customers as compared to Britain. This is why...they depend on your goodwill in the form of tips for their livelihood.

I'm just thining back to that scene in Resevoir Dogs when they're talking about the shit wages.

The minimum wage her [technically for people over 22 but generally most people] is £5.35 which at the current conversion rate is just over $10 per hour!! How measily does that 2 bucks sound now?

Flash and Alecya are both back, my cup runneth over.

Hey Girl!

Glad to see you doing so well in school. I'm very impressed and proud of you.

Happy anniversary in Nov, incase you don't get to post until then.

Missed you

It's great to hear from you again! I'm glad that things are going so well for you. Congratulations, too, on your promotion!

I'm really looking forward to NaNo this year. I wasn't into it last year; too much going on. But I was a winner the year before that, so I'm confident I can do it again. And so can you! :0)
