New Jobs, yay! [Sep. 28th, 2006|02:11 pm]

[I'm not blue, I'm |itchy]

So I now have a gainful source of employment that I think I might enjoy for more than three weeks. I'll be a hostess/backserver at Cedar Creek once it re-opens in two weeks. :) I have no idea what it will entail or anything at all really; other than I think the restaurant looks nice so far, the people who are running it seem very nice and cool, and that I have to get lots of black pants and black blouses. Oh, and some sort of permit to deal with alcohol, which costs forty bucks. I understand that I need to have a foodhandler's one, and I do; but I wish they would reimburse me like, half of the alcohol one.

Foodhandler's class is the most boring thing I've done in a few months. The inspector was so incredibly soporific; his droning voice and the cadence of it, his slouchy posture, his vapid expression - it all just about put me into a coma and yet I still got 100% on the test. So how dumb must you have to be to fail that thing?

I've been feeling rather depressed of late, and not the sad sort, just the wholly unmotivated sort. I'm really hoping this will help me stop sleeping until 1:00 in the afternoon and staying up way too late. Blech.

My hair is getting rather long - it's down to my elbows now. Should I cut it yet?

Sarah, you would have me grow my hair to my KNEES if you could.

Yes.

Also, one shiny blue foil star for using the word "soporific."

I adore the word soporific, it's just *this far* from being onomatopoetic.

And Eric, you would have me cut my hair to like, 1/2 an inch if you could. Both your vote and Sarah's are null.

No, I would not. What a gross exaggeration! I'd have it be, say, 2 inches. That's like four times longer.

And in a very real way "soporific" is onomatopoetic; it comes from the Latin root "sopor," which is based on the sound you make while snoring. But I'll bet you knew that.

If so, one small red foil star for you.
