what cha gonna do with all that junk, all that junk inside your trunk?

hehe that song cracks me up for no good reason. and like katie, now i'm gonna get that song stuck in your head.

last night at the brush was awesome. and when i say awesome, what i mean is, IT SUCKED GIANT BALLS. haha. well it started out with my first table, who had to wait FIVE minutes for their coffee to brew, got pissed off and left. five minutes. coffee. brew. OH MY GOD. what is wrong with old people in this town? my grandma would have waited 3 hours if it meant she got FRESH coffee. i suppose i could have served them the coffee that was leftover from 10 am that morning, but it being 6 o clock at night, i didn't figure it would taste too yummy. frickin evil brush bullshit. haha. that's a great new term i just made up. then, things were getting a wee bit better, my next table rocked, mostly because they stayed to wait for their drinks :). plus, they were a really nice couple from maryland furniture shopping, and they tipped me 10 bucks. hells yea. but then i spilled diet pepsi right down the front of my light grey shirt. blah. so i had to get another shirt from the manager. and yep, i have to return it after i wash it. of course, two seconds after i changed, i magically got honey mustard on me. from where? who knows. i swear i came nowhere near a container of honey mustard. it just sought me out.

but that wasn't a big deal. last night was cleaning night, since our inspection is coming soon. so as i'm scrubbing the glass rack, i'm moving trays of glasses around, and one tray of glasses magically falls off the shelf. this tray had about 30 glasses in it. my first thought: fuck. luckily, only six of them broke. also, all of the servers were standing there, and quickly helped me clean up without any managers knowing the difference. i stealthily (is that a word?) took the dustpan of broken glass all the way out to the dumpster to hide it.

immediately after this, a man in a white shirt walked into the restaurant and straight back to the kitchen. so of course the assumption is "Oh my god, it's the health inspector!" shit. of course, our kitchen is one of the cleanest i've been in, so i wasn't concerned, and we hurriedly cleaned up the wait station while he was in the back.

but then a few minutes later, we realized it was just some sort of repair man. shew.

after a few more non interesting tables, my night finally ended and i left at 5 til 10. earlier than usual... that was nice. plus, i got to work with carmen, always a plus.

friday will be better. friday will rock. i will have a good night on friday.

tonight is my night off. i could be going to boone with carmen and sattercrunk. but instead, i plan on sitting on my ass all night in front of the t.v. because i can.. i don't want to do anything or go anywhere. just sit there and watch the o.c. and e.r. and not worry about a damn thing. yea.

What you gon’ do with all that junk?All that junk inside your trunk?

it's like.. whoa.

so. you ever have one of those months where all you really want is a nap? but you just have to keep going to work. even when you get off work. then you have to go to work again. this week i have only 2 nights off, thursday, and sunday night. and i could spend this time being social and hanging out with friends. carmen offered for me to go to boone with her thursday night. but you know what i'm gonna do? NOTHIN. that's right. nothing. i'm gonna sit at home and wacth t.v. that's all i really want to do. clean my room and some laundry, but no more than that. because that's what i will enjoy more than anything else. and on sunday? my plan is to go see the corpse bride. seeing as it's been out for 5 days now, and it's a johnny movie, i should have seen it already. but what can i say? work. i know, i know, i am fully aware that it was my choice to get a second job, and that i don't have to do it. but i like a challenge sometimes. plus, instead of "breaking even" all the time, now i am able to save a little. i've already saved up 300 bucks. my goal is 5 grand. of course, i'm about to spend that 300 on a new computer, b's advice. but hey, i'm getting better at serving, therefore my tips are getting better. i'll have 5 g's in no time.

oh, and i've decided to give up poker for a while. i'm sick of losing money and feeling sorry for my lacking poker skillz.

what a pretty day it is outside. ah hickory. you know what i could really use? a full body massage. i've never had one. i think i would enjoy it. yea. by a nice swedish boy...........

digital digital get down

so here's a big surprise: the brush is starting to seriously blow. haha. friday two people were fired, including my favorite flirt buddy at the brush.. but now he's gone so the brush is boring as shit. saturday another server was fired. so of course i was asked to work all day on sunday. on football day. this seriously blows. as if that wasn't enough, today (tuesday) my first day off in forever, the manager called to ask if i could come in tonight and work, since they now only had 2 people to work. Crikey. i told her i would think about it and call her back. but honestly, i already feel like dying. so that's gonna be a no.
well, one good thing is that dustin (who has decided to wait until january to go to the army (YAY!!!)) is possibly coming back to work at sagebrush. at least that would be great cause i'd actually get to see the boy once in a blue moon. woohoo!
i'm ready to go back to sleep now. i'm already getting burnt out on the brush.. is that bad?
fuck it.

totally sucks

dustin left TODAY. * sigh *
and he told me that when he gets out of bootcamp & infantry school (in JANUARY!!) that he will immediately be moving to Tennessee to go to school.. Boo on that. who needs school? that's ridiculous. oh well.. i guess one day i'll be ok :). he'll come back and visit, i know he will..

visions of the future?

so last night i had a strange, yet awesome dream.. Ben Roethlisberger was my boyfriend. Except, he had Tom Brady's pretty head. and he was all mine... and we went to a Beck concert where barely anyone was there, so i got to talk to Beck. and my boyfriend Ben/Tom got all drunk. he was hot. tom's head on ben's body... yikes.

must be football season.

yes, i took that on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Cone Mountain, near Blowing Rock NC

pretty damn good weekend

well what can i say, i live a pretty lucky life.. granted, i have to work 2 jobs to stay afloat, but hey, i have great friends, and i'm happy with my life.. friday night was pretty awesome.. work kinda sucked a little cause one of my tables stiffed me on a tip. but that happens. some people just suck for no reason whatsoever.

doesn't matter cause after work i went to play poker with carmen and sattercrunk, brian, and dustin. i lost of course, but this due to the fact that i didn't want to be up all night and at a certain point i just gave up and decided to go all in with a king and seven. i would have won too, since another seven came up, but then a six came up (on the river of course) which made carmen's pocket six's a nice 3 of a kind. whore. at least she gave me five dolla back. that rocked. and then i went home...... and eventually went to sleep.

saturday i got 2 wow cards at work because i fucking rock.. wow cards are given to employees at the brush who show extra enthusiasm and are awesome.. yep. and then after work i went to el paso with daniel and katie and drank a big ass beer.

which led to a kick ass day on sunday, when katie, daniel, and i drove up to boone for the day. we went hiking on the parkway, took some pictures. then to howard's knob to see the lovely boone from up high. and to mellow mushroom again, where i had the greatest sandwich in the world AGAIN. except they fucked up and put mushrooms on it the first time. ew. so i told them i was allergic and they made me a new one. kick ass.

beer, and good times always happen with the bugs. went back down the mountain after picking up some free milkshakes from arby's (i have connections). and to the bug house for MORE BEER!

good times. and then monday it was back to the grind.. partly anyways.. the brush...
which was fine until i got FIVE tables at the same time. I am new. this is a lot for a girl to handle when she is new.. i even messed up and forgot to put in an appetizer order until after i'd already put in their food order. the manager had to give it to them for free. but apparently i impressed tim, since i stayed calm or something, because he gave ANOTHER wow card. i kick ass.
finished the fifth harry potter book and am 1/3 of the way through the sixth. she better publish the seventh one in the next week or i'm gonna be PISSED. ha.

ok i'll get it out of the way, hickory is going to run out of gas.. i'm not just saying that...they really are. but you know what, i'm not gonna panic. i filled up last night. it'll last me about a week if i don't go anywhere. i'm not gonna panic. i'm not gonna let it get me down. even if we do run out, we'll have more in a week. and if we don't? i guess i won't be going to work... nobody else will be there either, so no harm no foul. i'm not afraid of paying high gas prices.. nothing to be done about that..
i donated 20 bucks to the american red cross this morning... i know it's not much, but i figure if a whole lot of people donate 20 bucks, that's at least something.

in other news: NORTH CAROLINA IS GETTING A LOTTERY!!! this makes allison muy happy as i'm tired of having to wait for oppurtunities to go to south carolina to get a powerball ticket. they have taken a lot of my money. i know that the lottery is really a waste of time, and i won't win. but hey, it contributes to the public education system, doesn't it? so ha! all yall skeptics out there who won't be gettin any of my winnings. ha!

first thing i'm gonna buy with my winnings? EDUCATION. (pay off my student loans). therefore, this lottery is a great thing. Easley is the shit. i don't care what anyone says.
