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

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.”

10 TV Shows from the Year 2000 Volume 6 —

10 TV Shows from the Year 2000 Volume 6

FreakyLinks
The Trouble with Normal A short lived series on ABC.
Dot Comedy (US Version) One of those cancelled after one episode shows.
Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue The last Power Rangers series produced by Saban. Also had the first American exclusive ranger the Titiaum Ranger.
Clifford the Big Red Dog A fun show still enjoy the reruns.
Hype This was like the WB’s prime time version of MadTV. Two of the cast members joined MadTV after. I forgot about this show until I saw an ad for it in my old WB planner. There was a very funny Creed parody they did that I mistakenly thought was done by MadTV. There is not much about this show online.
Sex Wars
Teacher’s Pet I loved this cartoon too bad ABC was always preempting it. Some of my favorite episodes are “Costume Pity Party” (there is a really funny joke about a disco themed costume in that one), “Taint Valentine’s Day”, and “A Lick is Still a Kiss”.
Pelswick This show was ok I guess…?
Between the Lions By the time this premiered I was 16 and could read. I have a hard time with phonics. They were never really taught to me as a child in school. I did like some of the segments like “Little Wendy Tales”, and “Gawain’s Word”.

Dough Train — October 24, 2020

Dough Train

It was a pretty meh day at work. When I got there it was pretty crowded. I came in with the assistant manager who was freaking out about game one on Tuesday.

I went to take a break I guess there was a fight with sauce. I don’t know I didn’t see it.

I was trying to check the score on my phone, but it was updating slowly. It was stuck on the 9th inning.

Dodgers crapped out again as usual.

Still 10 More Toys from 1990 —

Still 10 More Toys from 1990

Minnie ‘N Me Secret Stamp Club toy I got one of these for my birthday the Daisy figure. There was only one of Daisy in the set. The rest of them were variations of Minnie and a lone Mickey figure. They were really just bendy figures with removable clothes and an articulated head. I loved this toy so much I ended up finding a Minnie one a year later. These figures were in scale with the Playmates Darkwing Duck ones, and also in scale with the McDonald’s Epcot ones from 1994. They were small but looked good with some Barbie accessories. The stamp rings they came with were lost many years ago. They had these plastic lockets that could hold the stamp ring and doubled as a stand.
Rub-A-Dub-Doggie The Tyco version of this toy. That came pastel colors.
Rub-A-Dub-Dolly & Tropical There were 2 versions the plain and tropical version made by Tyco.
Secret Places A very obscure doll line who was a larger doll with a playset that opened to a bigger playset inside it with a smaller doll. They sort of remind me of Wish World Kids who came out a few years before. Read about Secret Places here. https://www.ghostofthedoll.co.uk/secretplaces.php
Water Baby I wanted this doll so badly. After all these years I still have not gotten one. I still remember the jingle for it.
Cupcake dolls Another toy I wanted but never got.
Hush Little Baby doll
Bubblins Combining the appeal of dolls and the fad of bubble locket necklaces.
Tiny Toons Plush I got a Babs for Christmas, but I really wanted the talking version. I was disappointed.
The Rescuers Down Under camera toys and ornaments from McDonald’s I loved those little camera toys. I only have the Wilbur one. I really wanted the Jake camera because it was pink. Makes good doll props. So the ornaments were not really toys but I liked to play with the Bianca one I have.

Not a Lush — October 23, 2020

Not a Lush

Found out I’m working on Halloween, but it doesn’t bother me. The county is closed and there is nothing to do. Might as well make money. I think I would be more upset if I was not scheduled on Halloween. I working the next 2 Mondays so I don’t want a surprise Tuesday shift. On Tuesdays I’m ignoring my phone.

When I get there I see there is a big pizza for 6PM pickup. There was a table with a bunch of uncooked cheese pizzas on them. I was just pressing dough and prepping chicken wings. We were in a frenzy but not as much as we were on Tuesday.

Washing dishes was slow, so when nobody was looking I was checking the score on my phone.

That crazy manger asked if brought beer or liquor with me to work. Why would I do that? I don’t have a problem. I think I’ve had 1-2 drinks all month. I usually don’t have alcohol on my person. Can’t you get arrested for that? For some reason I kept dropping stuff.

I’m surprised the Dodgers won game 3.

My dad got mad because I didn’t get enough hours today. Why? I got some extra ones on Tuesday. He also wants me to constantly complain about the dumb guy. I’m not a whiny bitch like my dad. I just know that guy is gonna be manager in a few months. Because well, I’m lucky like that.
