Nice Day

This morning, I woke up exhausted, but that was my fault since I decided to take a sleeping pill the night before. It worked, mostly, but it does leave me feeling really tired in the morning. Luckily, last night's nausea and pain were mere residues.

I got up, showered and dressed and all of that. After, I found Nim in my room, curled up where I usually sleep. When she saw me come in, she left, but allowed me to hug her before doing so, wagging her tail in a sleepy, crooked circle. Basement Cat Mab made a rare appearance, and she chirped and fell over for me and accepted my affections with no arguments or fear. Milo was a blob at the foot of the stairs, greeting me with a helium meow and a headbutt.

The air outside was crisp and cool - a little grey, but still nice. I couldn't help but feel cheerful, so I was smiling a lot. No one tried to run me over, and lots of people waited for me to cross the street, even smiling back when I smiled and waved in gratitude.

I walked past a woman on my way from the bank, with my head tilted back and looking at the clouds. She saw me looking up and said jovially, "It looks like that might be coming, soon."

For a split second I was unsure of what she meant, but then I got it and I grinned, placed my finger to my lips and said, "Shh, it'll hear you and then it'll happen!"

We both laughed and went on our ways, cheered by our mutual superstition of snow.

My coffee was prepared wonderfully today, nice and sweet. My bagel was delicious.

The store is very quiet, very empty. There isn't much to do, and not a lot of people have come in yet, today.

Right now, there are clouds dark with impending precipitation. In some patches, a glimpse of the sunlight can be seen.

It's a very nice day.
yukinoomoni: (Eh?)
There is a bee in the store. The stupid thing is, I swear it flew in the moment I thought, "Wow it would be really shitty if a bee flew in the open door!" FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU---

The door is open because the whole store reeks of gasoline. It's making me sick ;.;.

Maple Cinnamon French Toast Bagels are why I am alive.

I'm writing today! The idea came into my head after my shower. That happens a lot.

I haven't shaved in a couple of days but I'm wearing shorts. Do you think anyone will notice?

THE BEE JUST CAME BACK SDGKLHSDGKLH. I'm starting to suspect it's the same bee that tried to fuck my ear on my way back from Tim's.

All I can hear are saws, saws, saws. I keep telling myself, "Thai Express is worth it, the food is delicious," over and over again, but still! RAR!

Obligatory babble about 9/11 )

I'm really starting to enjoy meditation. I sometimes actually crave it. I'll be reading, and then my eyes slide to my straw cushion, and I'll end up putting the book down and doing zazen for like, fifteen minutes. The longest I've sat is only a half-hour, but hey, I'm a newbie. Leave me alone.

My shorts are too big. What the flying fuck. A year ago I had the opposite problem. This is stupid. Don't be mad at me for saying that ;.;. I don't like it. I like being chubby. It makes me feel Willendorf (if you don't get that, look it up).

Milo is a moron. He keeps trapping himself in the living room to sleep on the rocking chair. But he can't find his way out so whenever he wants out he CRIES and CRIES and I shriek at him not to do that and he does it anyway. And then when I rescue him he clings to me and purrs. STOP TRAPPING ME WITH LOVE.

I have a video and pics of him, by the way. I will post them tomorrow.

I had a dream the other night that my hair was loooong. It was scary and sad and weird. My hair will never be long.

My fingers are thin enough to wear my parents' ring again. It's pretty. I like it.

By the way, Terry, your stone is a Garnet. I always picture you with Amethyst, though. Probably the purple thing. And also, Garnet is more orange than red. Stupid picture.

I think that's it. Time to earn my paycheque, lol.

Bye.

Ha-HA!

I WALKED TO WORK TODAY.

Why?

I was running late because sleep loves me and I love it. So I missed THREE BUSES. So I was like, FUCK. Then I said "Fuck IT."

AND I WALKED.

I mean, I know that sounds pretty boring, but consider this: I haven't been able to walk to work in months. Additionally, certainly not without the help of a cane. I not only could, but I did it without hurting myself.

I cried a bit when I was almost done. Stupid, but happy. I suppose a few of you understand, but yeah. I dunno.

If it puts it into perspective for you, I was only mildly frustrated when I discovered yet another clogged and shitty toilet for me to deal with this morning. So, yeah. Again, that should help you understand how big a deal this is for me.
yukinoomoni: (Eh?)
I was dared to draw this. So I dared myself to share. Because honestly, I have to admit some degree of pride in this, especially since male anatomy is my Kryptonite.

Bangs apparently make a difference, you know? Because I don't curl my hair behind my ears, people are really starting to notice the length. They then realise that I'm growing it out - they don't even notice that I actually cut some of it.

People are odd. And so is hair.

(In terms of cuts, I'm going to give it to June 1st to see how I feel about my hair. If I still hate it, I'll cut it. If I can tolerate it, I'll keep it the way it is.)

Also, I love the window washer. He just got me a large ice cap for free. He's so nice <3

Lol

Even when working in an ink store, I still manage to sell books.

I was in conversation with a customer about the quiet of my store, and how I use the quiet to inhale books. He saw the book I was reading, "The King's Man", and wondered what it was about. I told him, and he thought it would be perfect for his daughter.

He left with the list of three books in the series and intends to buy them for her.

I should get commission for this.

Customer: *peering at my Kobo* Oh! You have one of those ereaders, good for you! Oh, but you should get an iPad, they're multifunctional.
Me: I can't afford one of those.
Customer: Oh, yeah, well, the second generation is coming out, so maybe wait till it goes down in price.

Insert ink transaction here

Customer: By the way, what are you reading?
Me: The Twelve Kingdoms: The Shore in Twilight.
Customer: Oh, really? Oh yeah, that's a popular one! Have a good day! *leaves*
Me: What, no it's not. No one's even heard of it...

I have the impression he just had no idea what I was reading and wanted to sound cool.

lol wut

Both customers are male, btw.

Customer A: *makes some crass comment about Canada being good for gay people*
Customer B and myself: ...
Customer A: Sorry, not very politically correct, I know. I believe that God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
Me: *awkwardly* Uh, okay.
Customer B: *with a laugh* Come on, Eve!
Customer A: *laughing*
Customer B: Or is it Steve? Hold on... *pretends to spank Customer A*
Me: *cracking up on B's behalf*

I like it when people deflect other people's stupidity in clever ways. This is one of those times. It's like a verbal slap in the face - and it was done well. Customer B, you're my hero.

EDIT: He came back and kept calling me "Eve", and was being all nice to me. LOLWTF.

Toner Guy: *reading the note on the door* You broke the internet!
Me: Well, yeah, sorta? It's not really my fault!
Toner Guy: Yes it is. All of that internet porn. You crashed it!
Me: If it had been porn, a Trojan warning would have come up beforehand.
Toner Guy: Yeah yeah. It was porn!

Sometimes work is pretty hilarious.
yukinoomoni: (No)
You stupid printer
Why do you not work for me?
I need waybills, please!

You're embarrassing
You make me look very dumb
Also, full of fail.

I also don't get
Why you only do this when
I'm the one working.

That's very uncool
And a pretty shitty thing
To do to someone.

So please, stop it now
Or I may have to kill you.
I'm in a bad mood.
yukinoomoni: (Ahaha!)
I just spent the first fifteen minutes of my shift cleaning out the space beneath the work desk, due to waylaid papers tangled behind the computer and in the wires. It's so clean and pretty now, even though I was mad when I started (FIRE HAZARD, HELLO?)

Ryuuji, I totally understand you, now. I get why you go crazy when things are dirty, and why you make it into a battle - complete with RPG-attacks. I totally, totally get it.

Now I'm going to see how much of the store I can clean without going batshit. Bye.

So I guess this means you all have to suffer with daily posts once more. Poor you.

Come to think of it, there wasn't much of a silence on my vacation, so it won't be any different, then.

Coming back to work wasn't as bad as I anticipated. Although I do not understand why there is a large blue recycling bin in the back room. Since when have we recycled?

Hm. I really anticipated being oddly busy today. Now I'm pretty sure I'm going to be bored. Maybe I'll write something.

Blah. How are all of you today?

Brrrr

It's fucking cold in the store today. I can't say I blame it, what, with it being -10 with windchill and flurries blowing up my ass every five seconds.

I scored, though. I found an osculating fan that isn't a fan - it's a heater!

I have it positioned on me as I type. It is helping.

This office is too cold, though. Seriously. I wish I could fix the thermostat.

Brrrr

I just put away a parcel in the backroom, and I kind of had to shove it not very gently into the shelf.

Apparently I offended it, because it started singing and playing music!

It's been a whole minute and it hasn't stopped! I can still hear---

Oh, wait, it stopped.

Still, though. AAAACK!

Aaaah!
