A Little Bit You A Little Bit Me — October 31, 2020

A Little Bit You A Little Bit Me

This is not a blog about The Monkees or their song.

I watched this video early today.

I asked my parents if they knew this song. My dad the “music expert” said “no”. Then he suddenly had to go online. But this is coming from somebody who thinks “Modern Love” is not a Bowie song. I think it’s one of his more famous ones. Then later he tells me about mining and Pennsylvania. (I know because I saw it in Todd’s video)

My dad can’t contact his hair dresser. She has a full mail box. Then it’s my fault she doesn’t follow the rules or that you can’t contact her. He was so mad about that I got in trouble for sneezing. You know who doesn’t like sneezing too? VKM. No chance in hell! What is with old people and sneezing?

When I first got to work it was not so bad. The parking lot was not as crowded as it usually is. It got busy around 7PM. When I was washing dishes I had the song “Timothy” stuck in my head.

I had to pound dough with that new quirky girl. I know you are slow when you start out. I start throwing the dough into the pans. She’s not pressing them fast enough. She stops and just starts to stretch. Oil the damn pans! She was so annoying I just helped her for a little while and then left to go do dishes. And we kept needing dishes to be washed.

It was so crazy and hectic there. People had to wait 1-2 hours for their order.

I said she was right and she said I was right. So we were both right?

I decided I need to start working on my 2001 and 1991 blogs. Just grouping and compiling.

Dancing and Partying

I wrote about the Gwen costume before here. https://www.retro-daze.org/site/article/id/790

I had a hard time knowing which party it was because there were 2 big parties going around school that week. I had to figure which party the punk band was playing.

The sad thing was I really had to plead with my parents to go to this party. I don’t know why they complained I didn’t do anything and was not social when they were so strict.

It really wasn’t that bad. There were a lot of people from school there.

On the Eve of Prepration

Since I was a not show for game 6 of the World Series by calling I’d play it George Costanza style. It’s not like I got fired or anything. Wanted to see if my name was scratched off the schedule. But it wasn’t.

When I was bored and pounding dough I had “Zombie Jamboree” stuck in my head. “But the biggest zombies Tokyo to Rome
The zombies who call the city home”.

Are you saying this because you think I’m a bad worker? cause I am. LOL ok mediocre at best.

The manager called today Halloween Eve. Never heard anybody referrer to it like that ever. But I thought it was hilarious.

Neurotic Thoughts — October 29, 2020

Neurotic Thoughts

I’m upset I could not find my cool box of costume accessories in my storage space. I wanted to take a lot of pictures wearing them and possibly post them online. 😑😞😖😕🙁

Anyway watched some Halloween themed DVDs today. Maybe I’ll watch some more after work.

I’ve been stressing out about what items to buy for my secret hobby. If I buy this cheap item will they notice? But it’s all an illusion about what flies with them and what doesn’t.

Tacos and Shelving — October 28, 2020

Tacos and Shelving

I had a Halloween themed blog to post today, but moved it to Halloween day. Since I work that day and I will not be posting a decade blog.

I went to the store looking for some cookies and cream fangs been to a bunch of different stores and still never found them. But I did find Mini Brands balls. Why are they ¢.50 more at another Target another city away? Anyway I was going to buy 2, but I thought in case my hours get cut or I get in trouble for yesterday. So only 1 for me today.

I netted 3 items; A1 sauce, Shake ‘n Bake, and a candy shelf.

Thing took me like 15 minutes to build. The stickers were hard to put on. I don’t know if it is subliminal but the shelf colors remind me of Walmart for some reason. It doesn’t stand up very well by itself.

Here it is with some of my toys to show the scale.

When my dad and I went to get our first free taco. He ran into a couple from his church. Who were also there for the free tacos. I didn’t want to say in front of them about going to another Taco Bell later to get another taco. If you think about it you can go to multiple Taco Bells to get the free tacos at different locations. If you really wanted to and lived in an area with a lot of Taco Bells in it you could drive around getting free tacos. We waited a long time because they gave our order to someone else. My dad got really mad about it but I didn’t mind since that always happens at my work. Although that location is usually lacking. Got some Mexican Pizzas since they are going off the menu, but there are plenty of recipes to make them at home the way you like them. No taco pics they came in generic packaging this time.

Back to the Old Times — October 27, 2020

Back to the Old Times

I went shopping for shoes and I finally found something I like. Look how cute these are! A rabbit. So quirky! They would go good with a Sailor Moon costume or shirt or something.

I got these more plain and sensible LA Gear shoes. I loved the color combo on them. My first real pair! I had the Playless knockoffs.

I also got some boring slip resistant shoes for work. In the store they were playing “Then the Morning Comes” by Smashmouth and my mom was getting mad I was rocking out to the song. Now a days that is like an obscure song by them.

I think I got 4 calls from work? They called early too at 10:30 something AM. Earliest they have called. I was not scheduled for today. I checked the schedule 3 times yesterday. Maybe I would have come in if I had not worked yesterday. I knew they were just going to be freaking out. “It’s game 6! Dodgers! Starts at 5!” Just running around the place. I wonder if that assistant manager who freaks out about sports games had some kind of traumatizing work experience related to sports. The one thing I hope is that I don’t get in trouble. They won so now it is over until next season.


(I’m not psychic this is an old screencap from their 1988 win. Look at the old KCBS logo)

The Price is Right is still campy and terrible as usual. I remembered why I stopped watching it. Let’s Make a Deal in Prime time was ok. It’s been on all these years and never had a Prime time special? (the Wayne version) LMAD was very good compared to TPIR.

Dust in the Wind — October 26, 2020

Dust in the Wind

There was dust or ash in the bathtub and like always my dad blamed it on something. He said my dry foot made the ash. Who knew my dry feet were that powerful?

Are they having another cleaning contest? Again? Didn’t they just have one? How would you even clean the parking lot? There is more than one business there.

I was trying to get a picture of the unposted new schedule. But somehow I accidentally took a selfie. Saw the dumb guy got 19 hours 2 weeks from now. Eh. Figures *shrugs* It was only a matter of time.

Until I have to explain why I bought what I bought. I’ve worked so hard trying at my secret hobby for years. I will not let him stop or crush me.

And my phone is going on silent tomorrow. No calls from work.

That’s Not What You Do With The Old Pans! — October 25, 2020

That’s Not What You Do With The Old Pans!

Had this weird dream where the song “1979” played in it. Somebody once told me this was a bad thing? I guess so that person was very respected by others.

The dumb guy was not there. I looked around to see if he was there.

She’s kinda like quirky or whatever. Found her pinterest account. Pro Tip don’t make a pinterst account under your real name unless you are like a celebrity or something.

I hate pounding dough. It’s annoying and boring. There is just trash everywhere! It looks like a court show when they show people leaving trash bags all over an apartment they left. There is just dishes piled up there. There is very little space to wash them because of all the trash piled up.

She told me she knew what to do. Then she picks up the trays and takes those. *Face palm* I’m like “No! Not these! The round pans.”
