I started a new job recently, at Crate & Barrel. I must say I quite enjoy it. I am a floor stock associate, it would be called a floor stocker, but that sounds like floor stalker and that conveys a much different message. Most people don't want to hear about the details of how one stalks the floor*, so to be polite they just say things like, "Oh, that's interesting." So they stick with floor stock associate. Basically I figure out what's missing on the sales floor and then bring it down from the stock room. It's a good gig. You may or may not know that Buster Burger, my previous employer, went out of business. So it was necessary for me to find employment with haste. I was lucky to get this job so quickly. I owe a lot of thanks to Tayler's mom for giving us a glowing recommendation.**
On another note, it's almost Christmas time. I would like to be able to say that I'm a "Christmas Guy" but in the last few years I have felt my Christmas Spirit dwindling. So this year I am making extra effort to get it back. I'm prepared to do whatever it takes. I already convinced my parents to buy and decorate a tree, which has been a tradition we've neglected. (I know, I know. I already had a post on the importance of traditions. So I'm a hypocrite. Sue me. Don't.) Tayler also suggested caroling. Which we may do, I haven't decided yet. (I told her that we would...) If anyone has any ideas as to increase my Christmas Spirit, post it in the comments. I'm interested to hear your suggestions. I want to love Christmas like I did when I was a kid! So get on it.
I'm very excited, readers. Excited for Christmas, I'm also excited that school is out and I can spend my free time doing whatever the hell I want, and I'm excited to be back on my blog, I've missed you all and I hope that you've missed me as well. (I know that you haven't.) This is usually the point where I would post a link to Earl's blog, but he's being a tool bag and not posting on it anymore. Until he gets the motivation to return to it, I'm not going to send people his way.
Until next time,
*You just stand in one place and stare at the floor. A floor stalker's best day is when there's an earthquake or some other kind of seismic activity, it finally gives them something to do.
**The recommendation may or may not have been actually glowing. I don't know, I wasn't there.
