The Funniest Part of My Black Friday

I was walking towards a customer at work today when she shot me a look like I was growing a set of horns. Next thing I know she is staring at me and telling me how I look just like her sister.....did I mention this girl was black? It took a LOT of will power to not laugh at that moment.

Today I was passing by a Sonic in my car and there was a man dressed up as a huge sonic beverage. As I drove by a person was walking towards him. The sodaman threw his giant sign at the man, turned and ran away. It was pretty funny.

I joined the masses

Well this weekend I too went to see what some will call the blockbuster of our time....those people are most likely about 10 or more years younger than me, but it will be said. You guessed it, I saw Twilight....keep reading Jenny. I was surprised by two things:

1. The character called Jasper was channeling his inner Edward Scissorhands in order to play his non-speaking role. To make the likeness even greater he spent a lot of time shuffling around in the background and looking pouty.

2. Mike Dexter....of Can't Hardly Wait (in case you didn't know I LOVE THIS MOVIE....Annalise will attest to that) played the vampire dad to his clan of vampire children. You've come a long way Mike, and nobody called him a fag in this movie, movin' up.

Anyway for those of you who were even considering reading the book...or worse watching the movie instead of reading the book...don't do it! I must admit I enjoyed the book, but watching it being played out on screen made me want to vomit several times. Thank goodness Scissorhands and Mike Dexter were there to hold things together.

Training Day

Well I went through register training at Macy's today, 4.5 hours with me, a computer, a training CD, and a register. It wasn't too bad really, and the good news is I passed.

Now the bad news. I received my work schedule for the next 3 weeks.....I am scheduled to work two days. Wait, it gets worse, one of those days is the day after Thanksgiving.....and the shift is from 4:45am to 1pm. I know, there are no words.

I have news....

Some will find this to be good.....others, bad (Jenny).

I just finished Twilight.

So I hate to keep playing this card, but I got another job yesterday. After a VERY long group interview and this little scenario:

Me: (sitting trying to look like a good potential employee)
Ali: (guy applying to work at Macy's who did not speak English)
Ali: Pointing to the question "Why do you want to work at Macy's?"
Me: I would write what you like about Macy's
Ali: I like Macy's

And that's about as far as I could get with him. Anyway, after a 2.5 hour process I was completely signed on to work the holiday season, and the pay is a bit higher and there are more hours than the Bath & Body Works job. So there you go, job number two!

You speak about Chinese?

When I open up Firefox on my computer everything is in German. I know one German did this happen? When I tried to use my dad's scanner somehow the display screen with all the instructions changed to Chinese. Is this a new power and if so how can I harness it?

On another note I got a job today....don't get excited. You are now officially reading the blog of a Bath & Body Works employee...part-time....seasonal. Can't get much lower than that.

The Turkey Show

Tonight I went to Kate's 1st grade show honoring the great tradition of Thanksgiving. As they are singing a song devoted to McDonald's, Pizza Hut, and Kentucky Fried Chicken (you know the song I'm talking about) my brother-in-law Eddie turns to me and says....."this is what our tax dollars are paying for".

The right hand side of my facebook page seems to always have ads for some sort of diet food, diet plan, diet scam. I find this both annoying and insulting. Just had to let you know.
