iki_teru: (Aqua// PMS sucks)
[personal profile] iki_teru
So hey guys! Here in Louisiana, aka the boot, we're getting "wintery mix" which basically means a lot of slush and wet and cold. This state is not equipped to handle these kind of shenanigans. Work refuses to shut down, I'm local so of course I made it but a lot of my co-workers live up to an hour away from here. They called in.

It hasn't been too bad yet, despite working on a skeleton crew and having NO WHERE TO EAT DINNER BECAUSE THEY CLOSED THE ASSOCIATE DINING ROOM, I HATE YOU GUYS TOO. The internet is working, which is a plus so I'll probably be skulking about lj most of the evening. Please talk to me?

So wait, work is open, but you don't have a place to eat? That sucks.

We can eat at the (one) restaurant that's left open but like, a six inch sub is almos seven bucks. totally not worth it.

Sure doesn't sound like it. I'd think that if I went into work on a day like that, the company should try to be at least a little accommodating when it comes to feeding the employees. What is it that you do?

sit around and get fat from lack of exercise


I make reservations over the phone. So I am now completely incapable of controlling my facial expression in any given conversation because I'm always making ridiculous faces at the phone.

ALSO!

I work for a stupid tribal casino in southwest louisiana. feel free to check out the website to learn more about how I suffer Here (http://www.coushattacasinoresort.com) but be warned: most of the pictures have been shopped and look considerably nicer than IRL (also. we're tucked away behind the front desk of the hotel and we still die of smoke inhalation)

hi, bb! aqua's grr face is extremely appropriate. that's the one thing that i liked about working fast food, i always got to munch while i worked XD *is a fatty*

wintry mix, pfft. that's child's play. we don't close for less than three inches. ALSO i am so bored that i am watching (500) days of summer in spanish and actually trying to understand it so yeah.

I now have a shameless collection of appropriate Aqua expression icons.

Dude. When I worked at McDonald's we used to pilfer the chicken nuggets ALL the time. I'm surprised I didn't weigh like, a billion pounds by the time I quit there.

Well yes, it's child's play to you but this is a state that dresses like they're going to the north pole if the temp drops to 40.

I'm reading Big Bang Theory fic because the fandom is actually fairly awesome and get the snarky bits just right and even if not everyone can use the stupid large scientific words it's still extremely in character and exciting AND BY THE WAY YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS SHOW SO I CAN MAKE YOU SHIP SHELDON/PENNY!!

so...how's that spanish thing going for you?

the only time i wasn't constantly eating when i worked fast food was when i was working in the back, coincidentally.

man, i'd like to watch the show! it's just that i cannot deal with a new fandom right now :/ like, maybe once i get caught up on school stuff? just maybe? but right now i've got band and ap and everything, which SUCKS because there are so many fandoms i want to get into but just can't. senior year is ruining my lack of life.

pretty well, actually! whoever is subbing zooey has a really easy-to-understand voice, i can dig it.

Mmm back drive was my favorite. I had relative peace and quiet and got to bring books with me and ate back there on my lunch and would often work THROUGH lunch because I wanted mah munny.

I CAN COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND THAT BB AND SCHOOL IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT AND THERE IS ALWAYS THE SUMMER AND TRUST ME, AS SOON AS YOU HAVE FREETIME I WILL ATTACK YOU WITH A SHIT TON OF SHOWS/BOOKS/SITUATIONS YOU SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN.

fun fact: I used to like turning on like, Harry Potter in spanish because ti was SO weird. (also, i've never seen 500 Days of Summer. tis it good?)

see, our back drive was literally two steps away from the front counter and the kitchen, so i basically stood up for eight hours a day and got yelled at if i so much as slouched :/ don't ever work for family, trust me.

ugh, i am just so done with this year, you know? SUMMER COME TO ME. (are you going to disney this summer, out of curiosity?)

IT IS MY FAVORITEST LITTLE FAVORITE QUIRKY INDIE ROMANCE EVER OMG. and tom is me, trufax.

I'm totally playing with my icons

Ugh. the only downside to our backdrive was having to chagne the huge boxes of soda syrup because that fell to whoever pulled backdrive for the day and I was literally incapable of tearing open the thick cardboard housing the syrup and usually had to go cry to the guy I was dating who worked grill.

YOU COULD NOT PAY ME TO WORK FOR FAMILY. SERIOUSLY.

we're actually going to Disney like, the second week in December. We did the summer thing ONCE and it rained like, every afternoon between 2-6 and it was so friggen crowded and hot and we were like "people! :hiss:" (also, um. when we went during the summer I had a panic attack after the fireworks BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE AND I KIND OF CAN'T DEAL WITH THAT MANY BODIES MOVING TOWARDS ONE TINY EXIT AT THE SAME TIME)

WHY HELLO AQUA'S BOOBS

the absolute worst thing about working drive-thru, i think, is when it's cold out and your skin gets all dried out and chapped from being out the window all day. AWFUL.

butbutbut i can't has quality ana time if you go in december D: actually, the one time i've been to disneyworld was for christmas when i was eight years old, and it, like, sleeted. all week. it was awful. (i only get like that when it's people trying to talk to me. if it's just physical, i'm fine. years of mosh pits have taught me well. also, the underground on new year's eve. if you are ever in london and tempted to go watch the new year's fireworks JUST SAY NO believe me)

DUDE I GET SO DISTRACTED BY AQUA'S BOOBS ANYTIME SHE WALKS BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST LIKE BAM IN YOUR FACE! (obviously I have issues)

Oh god. I used like, barely stick my hand out the window to retrieve the money and I refused to open my window at ALL unless they had their payment ready. too cold for that bullshit.

This obviously means you have to go BACK to disney in december!! (or maybe we can arrange some time the following year to fly to seattle and bug the fuck out of Ceci in a joint effort of ridiculous?)

videogame boobs are always more distracting than real ones, whether it's in a pleasant way or not.

lol, but we get the total assholes who will fucking reach out and tap on the window. that drives me INSANE. it's like, why the fuck do i have to sit here and have a conversation with you while you're counting pennies? like, really?

YES ON BOTH COUNTS. man, i need to stop being poor so i can afford to do stuff D:

This is true. Unless you're in a movie theater because there will ALWAYS be that one actress who went sans bra that day and all you can think is NIIIIIIIIPPLLLLLLE

HA! I had an angry guy at the front drive my very first weekend and the potheads messed up his order and I apologized and told him if he would wait a minute I'd get it fixed. He, instead, drove AROUND the store to be about the middle of our parking lot and lobbed the offending sandwich THROUGH THE WINDOW and hit me with it. Thank god it was a hot'n'spicy.

WE CAN TOTALLY WORK AROUND THIS I'M NOT SURE HOW YET BUT IT WILL HAPPEN AND THERE WILL BE SHENANIGANS AND THE WORLD MIGHT EXPLODE BUT THAT'S COOL BECAUSE WE WILL FINALLY HAVE SNUGGLES

You forgot to mention how all schools have been closed because of the 20 degree weather.

We coastal folk just aren't prepared for The Cold. No salt for roads, no plowing should it snow (and it actually snowed very very heavily in 1972. I was 2! We have home movies.

Everyone was at Wal-Mart today hoarding toilet paper and canned goods. It was hilarious!

I remember being like, eight and we had a hard freeze and the entire world shut down. I can't even imagine if it SNOWED.

ALSO! that thing about wal-mart is why I am glad I do not work in grocery stores anymore. My god. (we've had a shameless amount of people COMING FROM TEXAS because "the weather is bad" how does that make sense??)
