The joys of no bathroom
Also happening this week was one of my baristas decided to go on a 10 minute break & never come back or tell anyone what was going on. Now this is a barista who has been working in my cafe since January & has never done anything like this. She has not returned any calls. One of the other baristas contacted via email but she just told him she "had things to do". So after training the lunkhead & had to spend the rest of the day trying to work out a schedule in case she decides to never come back. And while I have two baristas on vacation & the rest of us are already close to 40 hours. Yep, it's been a fantastic week.
So in spending the day outside of my apartment, I am:
- Going to the gym so I can use the showers. I am also of course working out, but I am much more of a afternoon to evening workout gir. Let me tell you, I love love love the fact that I have to cart my clothes & toiletries around all day. Not to mention I will be wearing this hat all day long because I have no desire to carry around my hairdryer as well.
- Going into the store to whine to friends about my delima. Just where I wanted to spend my day off - back at work. But I figure if I'm going to be hanging out in coffee shops all day I may as well get a discount.
- Coming here to the library to use the computer for an hour. Whine on blog about life.
- Going see Pride & Prejudice, even if it doesn't have Colin Firth in a wet shirt & the BBC version will be superior.
- Hanging out in my LYS to exchange excess Foliage & making myself feel better by choosing some yarn just for me. Perhaps for some fingerless glove/armwarmers, I'm so tired of having cold hands.
- Hanging out in coffee shops to knit & listen to Something Rotten to pass the time.
Hopefully that will fill my day up enough so I can go home & at least do the laundry that has piled up.
Okay, knitting. Started Fuzzy Feet slippers for sister - using Brown Sheep Worsted in black & dark teal. I think she'll like it. I need to finish them both by next week so I can felt them at my moms. I also found a pattern I really want to work on in the Loop-d-Loop book. I can't find a pictuer of it but it's the Slip-Stitch Intarsia Kilt. I'm in love. It looks like it will be quite a challenge for me but I love the way it looks. Not that I need another project of course [sigh].
All right, about outta here.
But first what I should be studying (from And She Knits Too!)
|You Should Get a PhD in Liberal Arts (like political science, literature, or philosophy)|
This seems to be a popular answer in the knitting blog world. What does that say about us?
