Top Pizza!

So can I just say how much I am actually enjoying my job?? I know, right?!?

I was a little worried at first... the other employees are a little rough around the edges (to be polite) and they kinda take their smoke breaks in the back room... which I'm pretty sure is illegal.. I've only seen my boss once since my interview so the older staff kind of takes it upon themselves to run the place..

Besides all that, it's actually a great job. The pay is decent, the staff cracks me up, and they actually like me, which apparently is a big deal because they usually hate the new people and complain non stop about them. The delivery driver asked Colleen (the self-proclaimed boss) how I was doing and she didn't have anything bad to say about me. (I'm not lazy... that's pretty much all it takes I guess) Oh, and we were voted "best pizza in lethbridge" this year! Again! This place has been in Lethbridge for 41 years!

I've even started to get comfortable there, and come out of my shell. For those who know me well, know that when I get out of my shell ... I'm OUT of my SHELL! So I've already been called "sassy" a couple of times :)

I did, however, get "caressed" at work the other day. I was running around the corner and ran right into one of the kitchen guys. I guess he wanted to make double sure I wouldn't fall over because he kept his hands around my waist for what felt like a lifetime and slid them across my stomach as he walked away.... *awkward*

When I have to work late, the delivery driver drives me home. I give him 5 bucks which is still WAY cheaper than a cab would be. Often he has this girl with him who I guess is friends with most of the staff as well. They're both sweet people. I've been worried that I've been a burden to him lately, needing rides 2 or 3 times a week and his response was, "Are you kidding? By driving you home, I have an excuse not to hang out till all hours of the night with the rest of the staff watching them drink and do drugs. Ever since we've been driving you home, good things have been happening in our lives. It's awesome!" Isn't that great?? We have some great religious conversations during those drives too. The other day we even talked a bit about temple marriages. They're both fairly acquainted with the church. I have lots of hope for them :)

Ok I've procrastinated sleeping long enough. Here is a picture of my place of employment! (Because I'm sweet like that..)

The dangers of YSA dances...

So I went to a dance last night. It was actually pretty decent. It was outside, the music was plenty loud, and the song selection was pretty fabulous. The after party was a birthday party for my roommate's 19 year old sister back at our place.

However I ended this evening feeling older than ever! Here's why:

#1) The songs I enjoyed the most were at least 10 years old. For example, Destiny's Child - Jumpin', Beastie Boys - Intergalactic, Will Smith - Gettin' Jiggy Wit' it, etc etc

#2) I knew ALL the words to these songs... and some kids had never heard them before.

#3) A boy asked me to dance. I could tell right away he was a bit younger than me... He asked if I was in school, and I said I was finished. I asked him if HE was in school. He said he had just graduated! So I asked him what he studied and he said "no, I just graduated high school. I'm going to U of L in the fall for a year and then I will go on my mission"...... precious....

#4) As the birthday party took place upstairs, I was in the basement with a few other of the "older" folks listening to records. Some of the kids came downstairs as part of a game and couldn't wait to get back upstairs away from the "old people". I think they were shocked that we would enjoy sitting around reminiscing about the days of cassette tapes while listening to records.

I am officially in my "late twenties". I have to admit... a shed a tear that day... but now it's starting to grow on me. Now if only I could look a touch older so I don't have to embarrass anymore 18 year old boys with my "wisdom"...

My Birthday!

So today is my 27th birthday! Not sure how I feel about that, but I'm starting to accept it. Last night I went out for dinner with some friends to celebrate! This was followed by birthday cake back at my place. Linda's sister Gene make it! She decorated it like a pizza! People know me well :)

"Someday everything's gonna fall right into place.."

Random blog.

This weekend ALL my roommates went out of town. I discovered I hate being totally alone for too long... Not sure if I could ever live by myself unless I had friends/family close by to stop over all the time.

Making $100 in tips can take me RIGHT out of the worst mood ever!

I've fallen in love with the Paramore album and I listen to it all the time lately. Which is weird because I downloaded it ages ago and originally thought all the songs sounded the same. Not sure what I was thinking!

When Faith has babies, I'm moving back to Ontario. That should give me about a year or more to stick it out here which I'm ok with.. I'm excited to have that excuse to settle in Ontario :) If I'm going to be single for a long time, I may as well be around family, right?

I still crave pizza and rootbeer ALL THE TIME!

I had the best religious discussion today with a couple people from work. It's nice to be appreciated for my morals instead of feeling on display like some kind of freak show.

Ok it's bed time.
