I have yet to go into the hydroponic tank.
Here are my hot tips for beginning a long vacation---
1. Don't have a retail job. The June sale at the Bath and Body has hollowed out what used to be a human about me. I have seen the depths of humanity and she wants cheap lotion. After only one day off the store since I finished school, I uttered my first smart alec comment today. "We have subtle marketing throughout the store to indicate prices" (go here for an idea of why this was funny). Also, I have to wear an apron with the words "The Big Semi Annual Sale". Man, I don't ever wanna wear clothes with the word "BIG" on 'em.
2. Just because you are on vacation, continue to suck up to your IT department. I attended the "How to get the internet on your laptop class" (nevermind that my laptop is in for repairs and I have been on the internet since November, I had to go). The head techno-troll looked at me skeptically and said "You dropped this, didn't you?". No!! No, no, a thousand times no!!! It seems I might be on my desktop, locky lockerson, for the next little while.
3. Never get a haircut after a sweaty retail shift. I did this yesterday, and I swear to you, I have a mullet. All I said was "I sure would like something with more shape". My stylist knows my inability to wield a round brush (the weapon of choice for all the blow dried) but when I gave my new head the old college try, I still think I looked like Richard Marx.
I plan to read and movie up next week for more interesting entries. Look forward to that and the true story of the first time I gave the ACT.
