Substituting

My boss is gone on vacation this week. Prior to leaving, he bumped up my hours (and everyone in the department) to cover his work. So I came in on Monday, which I normally don't work. And they had me scheduled to work receiving Tuesday as well.

But a funny thing happened. We got something like 25% of our delivery on Monday, so I went home after only 3 hours.

Yesterday I worked a full day though, because I shelved first, and then worked on the delivery that came Monday evening for some reason. Still, there's no scheduled delivery today, so although I am scheduled for a full day, it's likely I will come home early.

Next week will be funny though. I'll be doing newsstand Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday I was supposed to have off. Thursday was to be back to shelving. But while my boss is gone, the assistant store manager/person in charge of the schedule stole me away for the Customer Relations Manager for Wednesday and that Thursday. I get to dress up in a suit and sell books at an interior design thing in Sodo.

I will actually get close to 40 hours next week.

This better be a one time deal. I don't really want to be working that many hours.

Valentinr/Thiscrush

What's the difference between Thiscrush and Valentinr?

There should be a minimum 3 month break between these kinds of semi-anonymous-but-i-don't-really-want-them-to-be tell me you like me/would date me memes.

Secret Crush

I wrote this in January 2004 when another one of these secret crush memes went around.
Look, I'll make it easy, since the meme is going around again. Here's the people I had for secret crushes. So stop wondering. My criteria pretty loose, and it excludes a lot of disqualifying qualities. For example, you are married, you think I look like your brother, you are young, etc. I still put you on the list even if you would be disqualified for one reason or another. Basically, if circumstances were ideal, would I kiss you? So please don't take it as more than it is.

Since the meme is going around again, I'm updating the list:

These folks should already know cause I've told them, or asked them out, or they were on the original entry 3 years ago, or something like that: a_muse_d, amare, assassinpandora, betanoir, broken_teacup, burgunder, c_dawg, calimbrium, daemonwolf, daydream, dimenxia, drtydallas, dyann, efebruary, emmrldize, evillinn, faerieburst, hadaverde, insolent, jenny_i_read, kumimonster, lula_fortune, m_cobweb, magdalen93, malackey, mariquita, onlyjanica, psychik, raqsindira, rika_rayven, sirensanssmile, spacemage, squashcup, thevfrchick, turtlegrrl13, zanbaka.

The following people maybe didn't know I kinda liked 'em at least enough to kiss em, so here you go: aggrobat, bigdonkeyretard, butterbee, designmonkey_ko, dieszy, dreina, etyrniti, gargoylettelc, gothbitch, industrialvein, kaosqueen, la_roja, laurelfan, mercuryslavejq, missreagan, my_poison_apple, whatarewordsfor, skepticle, sunnnnnnnnnnny, whoronica.

I won't say it means nothing. But it doesn't mean much. So please don't be thinking I've been pining for you for years. Though, if you want to believe that, I suppose you have that right. And, as I wrote 3 years ago:

Now, let's see what kind of shitstorm this starts.
