Some real good things happened today!
First of all, sorry I didn't post back the other day, just in case you were checking up on me and my creative skills!
Instead of procrastinating all day, I went out and bought some sparkly wool, and some knitting needles.
Hmm, the sparkles aren't as visible as I'd hoped...
Anyway, I knitted this much leg warmer! Now it's just a matter of finishing it, then knitting another one - I'm pretty excited about the idea of me in sparkly legwarmers, so hopefully I'll stick at it!
And that was my day off! Woke up yesterday to the news that Obama won! So very awesome! And there's a real buzz in the air - I was walking to work and a complete stranger said "Think positively! Obama! Yeah!" It was nice. I love that everyone is so excited, and so ready to be vocal about it!
I worked yesterday and today, and I'll admit that each day is easier than the one before it. I still don't think those guys have a sound business ideology though.
Example: Last night (Wednesday night) was my first real shift. I did one trial shift prior to that. So, Nathaniel (my favourite trainer) decided he needed to go home for some "emergency bill paying" and left me to close up. How does that make sense? I understand, sometimes emergencies happen, but it didn't seem like he was stressed or anything, he just casually told me he was leaving! It all turned out okay in the end, but it's not great, is it?
Anyway, I closed last night, opened this morning, and was quite tired by the end of the day. My new shoes are a bit rough on my feet and I was really relieved to get home. Then I got a phone call from the coffee place in Brick Lane where my friend Dan used to work when he lived here! I applied there weeks ago, but they're looking for people to work over Christmas, and I mentioned in my application that I'd be going to Iceland for the holidays.
Lucky for me, they mustn't have found anyone - I have an interview there tomorrow! I think I may have sounded a bit weird on the phone, the guy asked me if I had a job, and I said "Yeeees, but it's not really working out for me". Probably not the best first impression to make, but I was pretty excited by the prospect of maybe working there. Hopefully that'll work in my favour.
After that I checked my emails, and Kristinn should be able to wiggle his flights around so he can come to our wedding! Yay!
On an unrelated note, this is the teapot Anna mentioned in my comments. Such a pretty thing.
