Three days…

of prison at work.

Oh well, they were kind enough to schedule me for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday so the bright side is my weekend good, er, at least until Saturday.It’s hard because at the register, you literally are like a veal, stuck in the cage of a register. Me? I sneak out with the price gun to ring up people’s soda cases and spring water cases so I have an excuse to move 10 steps over and 10 steps back.Today during break, I walked back to the bakery to find no one there and then in the back of the store to find out the scheduling was done because a new bunch of “kids” hadn’t gotten their register training done yet.

I have a distant neighbor who comes to the job and acts as though she is my nearest and dearest, and she didn’t talk to me before I had this job. She runs an illegal day care here and I am just waiting for something to happen to ship her out.

This job has lost any entertainment value, especially when I am on the front end .Suffice it to say, I am looking for one to replace it.

Apocolypse Now

It is the most dreaded day in my business.

The deadline for filing real estate tax appeals.

Today is the 29th time I have been through it and hopefully my
last.

Jim tells me to look at it as entertainment, but to me it is a
sad reflection of the state of the city.

Today is one day I will more than happily leave behind me to
pack up to Undisclosed.

Buh-bye….lol

Emmy Awards for Behind the Candelabra

Well, when I first saw the HBO show,I was intrigued by it.

After all, i was a nice Polish girl whose folks always enjoyed
his music.The historian in me was intrigued in the behind the life
scenes and story. It was truly a love story with its’ ups and downs
and they played that they were both truly in love with each other.

Steven Soderburgh won for director and his work behind the camera was
awesome. I was familiar with this work from the remakes of Oceans 11,
12 and 13.

Congratulations to Michael Douglas and Matt Damon on a job well
done. I can’t wait to see it again.
