Me lately

Today I got a job! Woo! It is at a bakery/coffee shop and I will serve up the food to the customers and make their tasty coffee drinks. Finally, my dream came true and I was offered the job at the interview. We were chatting and then the manager said, "I'd like you to start training next week." I am sure I did a double take as I didn't believe I heard him right, but it was true! I am scared to cancel my other job interviews, though, as what if something happens to this one? It is a big relief to have some employment, even though it is only $8.25/hr. At least I have an idea of what I will have to work with. If my financial aid ever comes through I might be all set.

Tonight I am going to watch the Oscars at a friend's. I've got my and Melinda's predictions all printed out and ready to go, so we can see who rules the Oscars this year. She always sneaks up on me by predicting the best short animated film and such.

Also, dude, what rock am I living under that I didn't know The Amazing Race started? I am so sad! I missed the first episode, and tonight I must watch the Oscars. What I am I going to do about the conflict between it and Grease: You're the One that I Want? My life is so complex and I own no VCR.

Ooops. I forgot to post that I am going on a "media fast" starting Monday. No TV, movies, books, internets or podcasts for me during the week. It will be interesting. Anyway, I am not sure I post enough any way that you will notice, but I won't be reading and commenting on blogs either. I'll let you know how it went next weekend!

Yay for job! Coffee shops are fun places to work--you get to mix up all the fun drinks. And good luck on your Oscar picks. I haven't really made any picks this year because I haven't seen many of the movies, and the ones I have seen I wasn't all that excited about. Except Pan's Labrynth. I want that one to win everything it is up for and more.

Congrats on the job! I always thought that would be a fun thing to do.
Good luck on the media fast! I could never do it. I am seriously addicted!!

How do you do on your Oscar picks? I did not get my act together to compete with you two...

congratulations, Laurie! Hooray for gainful employment!

Even though it was Starbucks, I kind of miss working in the coffee shop environment. However, I do not miss the Saturday and Sunday drive-thru crowds. hate hate hate.
