Macy's Moments

So I realize that it is VERY stupid for one to blog about their work, however since the only thing happening in my life right now involves Macy's I feel I have no choice. Therefore I will proceed with a little series of posts I will call "Macy's Moments".

Dear Macy's,

What is the protocol for an associate to follow when a customer has an entire conversation with themself in another language while you are ringing up their purchases?

A. Ignore ignore ignore
B. Ask, "would you or your friend like to open up a Macy's credit card?"
C. Offer your opinion on any subject you desire in a third language
D. All of the above

The bad news:
Have had 2 colds and one stomach flu since arriving back in Texas

The bright side:
Thanks to my poor health I have lost 7 we know how to keep off those holiday pounds.

Making the rounds

So my plan to join a gym has been somewhat faltered by the fact that I make a whopping $100 a week on average, making a monthly gym payment a bit unreachable right now. In an effort to not have to run outside when it's REALLY cold (as in your lungs start to burn) I have started my tour of Frisco health clubs via the genius of the "7-day free pass".

So far I have worked my way through LifeTime Fitness and 24 Hour Fitness. Next up LA Fitness. That's nearly a month of free gym usage people! Clubs I can still mooch off of include Bally's Total Fitness, Snap Fitness, and if I'm desperate enough Curves. 4 out of 5 of these clubs includes the word fitness in the title....just had to mention that. Anyway, between 24 and LifeTime I vote LifeTime, however if you are unable to pay the $79 per month to join you may want to join the gym rats of the Frisco 24 Hour Fitness for the small price of $29.99 a month. The only downside to this evil plan.....gym sales people calling you non-stop to find out how your pass is working and pressuring you to join now before the incredible deal they have offered you expires!

Something I've been wondering

Why does Charlie Brown have male patterned baldness? He's a little kid. Does he have alopecia?

Things that are hard to do:

1. Get Jenna's dog Max to wear a Christmas wreath around his neck
2. Putting a Santa hat and beard on her other dog Hogan
3. Making them pose for a Christmas picture

But the outcome was pretty funny.

You may experience some discomfort

So yesterday I went into Denton to do a little returning of things/purchasing of Christmas gifts. I went into a dressing room to try on some clothes in Target and there was a women in the room next door. During the some 15 minutes I was in there she managed to sound like she was birthing a child and produce an enormous belch. I have to say I was pretty disgusted...and also wondered whether she managed to get on what I can only assume was her very own sausage casing.

My New OCD

So I recently joined My Food Diary in an effort to keep better track of what I'm putting in myself. I realize this service sounds crazy and has the potential to make me truly obsessed with keeping tabs on myself, but so far it has been pretty interesting. You put in everything you eat in a day, the exercise you do (if you are doing that) and it tells you whether you need to make changes to meet your goals. So far I've found out it likes when you eat healthy and is not so fond of you when you decide to have some Blue Bell Cookies 'n Cream ice cream.....who'd have guessed. Anyway, I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.
