As I have been biting my tongue (semi-successfully) to keep from bitching at people and outright bitching at inanimate objects and websites for the past few hours and am feeling all irritatingly useless and stuff, I am in dire need of a list of gleee before sleep. YAY! (I hope this "whinewhine" biscuiting before the list doesn't disqualify its... listness. I should work on that part)

5 gleeeful things about today:

1. mystic_isles000 called me from her destination airport to say she had arrived safely. *bounces* YAY! Felt loved. I also wrote her an email from cash register 4 (it really only says "I am at cash register 4 and sending you an email!!" because that's all I had time for between customers).

2. Had some great interactions with guests today at work, but one in particular. I *love* people who come in happy and excited and get us all caught the staff in it. We had an in-depth and ridiculous discussion about cookies and the way people pick them out. It doesn't make much sense in the retelling. It was fun, and mostly gleeeful because I got all caught up in both the banter and in being an informative and knowledgeable sales girl when called upon to do so and felt like *me.*

3. TROT NIXON STARTED FOR THE SOX TODAY!! *fangirls Red Sox boyfriend madly* He's on my TV again! I am happy.

4. Talked to besyd. She is awesome even when has been recently scarred by songfics. She did not disown me for being excited that we live on a real actual planet (WHAT? It doesn't LOOK like a planet from here. She showed me a pic from space and I was surprised. It *is* really cool that the world is round).

5. Local cider! It's cider season! There is cider in my fridge! Eeeee!

3 things I did well:

1. Worked 4 hours! Bounced around on my feet the whole time, went the extra mile for customers, multi-tasked well and covered reasonably smoothly when I didn't and felt really good and competent at my job there for a while. YES!!

2. Read an upcoming aj fic to beta, in which she breaks Weir a lot. Those of you who like dark and pretty will LOVE this.

3. .... I feel like some variation of this is on the list *every day*, but it really *is* my priority in life, and I had the most balanced dinner *ever.*

Huh. Just scrolled back to the beginning of this post and don't remember what I was being all bitchy about.

I <3 Earth from space! :D

But how can you send email from a cash register??
Little Red: part of the job - amandamylittleredgirl on September 13th, 2004 05:01 pm (UTC)
We have SWANKY new cash registers that run on computers. We discovered they have INTERNET ACCESS the other week when a customer got behind one and started trying to check his email. *raises eyebrow at odd customer*

One night my sister and I were left alone manning the store (heh heh heh) and ended up sending SG-1 epostcards at each other between registers.

Oooooh! *drools over your cash registers* *looks at customer oddly, but realizes she'd have done the same thing--if they weren't, you know, store cash registers and thus off-limits*

Well, then to some extent, it looks like it did it's job for the day :)

Yes! *pleased* I guess it will take a little longer for a daily practice of gleee to make me enlightened and joyful *all* the time ;)

Yay! Cider!! Love that you posted 5 things :-)

*hugs you madly*

I really wouldn't be posting them without your encouragement, and doing it is making me so happy! And cider is just... mmmm. The REAL reason to live in apple country!
Lisa Yaegerlisayaeger on September 13th, 2004 05:18 pm (UTC)
I love apple picking, caramel apples and cider. Not an apple pie fan. Something weird about me- I don't like cooked fruit.

*hugs you back*

Me neither!!! People keep telling me I'm a freak and unamerican for not liking apple pie. (I do support strawberry/rhubarb pies, though)

When we get together in October we will have to make a point of not having applie pie :)

Maybe Key Lime or Banana Creme or Chocolate!!

I also hyate apple pie, but that's not the only reason for people to call me unamerican semi-legitimately
Little Red: ethermylittleredgirl on September 14th, 2004 01:19 am (UTC)
Yes, well, I suppose there's a legitimate reason to call *me* un-american, too... occasionally my canadian roots show through.

And I didn't know that about you and apple pie. No wonder we lived so well together.

Hey, are you still watching Stargate or Atlantis? My dad has set up VCRs so we can copy from one tape to another (and you know that I'm a big goober and tape *everything*), so if you wanted me to copy a bunch of tapes of anything you haven't managed/bothered to download, I could...

(or, you know, I could make you a chevron scarf or something for your birthday but I'm pretty sure you would 1) never wear it, and 2) NEVER FORGIVE ME)
Kim's Watermelon Gunkeenween on September 14th, 2004 03:58 am (UTC)
No, I don't need you to tape anything for me, I have been dloading and watching faithfully, both sg-1 and atlantis, though we'll see if I keep up with atlantis past this season.
And on the chevron scarf, a) feel no obligation to my birthday at all, b) I probably would wear it but only because you made it for me, and never where I thought someone might recognize it for what it was, c) I would forgive you, but I would totally harass you for being a big dork.

Note, however, that I have just joined netfix and 2 of the 1st 4 things I added to my queue are Voyager seasons 2 and 3. We'll see how that goes.
