Better than a Chocolate Sundae?

The last few days have been a little crazy. I had reported on Twitter that in attempt to further simplify my life, I was going to get a mindless job. So I evaluate what is behind my house close by and come up with Sub.way. Perfect! They pay well, have benefits, and a food allowance.

I drive over to see if this particular Sub.way is hiring. They are. Manager who hands me an application is absolutely gorgeous! It is the closest I have ever come to love at first sight. After wiping the drool off the side of my face, I fill out the application and return it to the manager.

After the holiday, my phone rings. RING RING! I’m overly pleased to see that it is gorgeous Manager calling from Sub.way. Can I stop in? Sure! I’ll be there this afternoon! I throw my pajamaed bum in the shower and get all prettied up for Manager.

Arriving promptly a few minutes before three o’clock, a take a seat at one of the tables waiting for Manager to finish up with a customer. He comes over taking a seat and flashes me those beautiful pearly whites of his. We do some general questions and then some not so general ones. I start drooling again assuming manager is going to ask me when I can start. Instead he begins to go on about how his father owns several Sub.ways  and More than Noo.dles. Hmm. Okay. He must need help at another, more far away store. Boo!

The next thing that comes out of his mouth is that he “was thinking I would be perfect for a Manager at More than Noo.dles. ” Say what? ME a Manager???!!! So fast forward a couple hours to the phone call from his father. One of the first things that comes out of his mouth is “I don’t know what you did to my son, but he sure thinks very highly of you.” OMG! It was love at first sight! He he he!

So yes. Meet the new Tinsley, Manager in training. With all the positive strangeness in the air, I took it even further by chopping off all my hair. It is now to my chin and I’m totally digging it! I promise pictures are to come, but things haven’t slowed down since my first drooling incident over the Manager. He–J–and I will be spending all day tomorrow at work because I get to cook some more. That’s the first thing I have to be trained in because of course if a cook doesn’t show, the manager has to cook. Sweet! A man who knows his way around the kitchen (and believe me he does)!

The training thing should take a month or two, so I won’t be making a whole lot until I’m done, but once I have completed the training portion I will be put on salary and raking in the big bucks. Even if J wasn’t totally gorgeous, I would still be in debt to him for this wonderful opportunity he gave me. He is a saint. Hell, he is yummier than a chocolate sundae. I have a job and am totally in like. Life is good.

Get With the Program

After much huffing and puffing as well as many hours spent in the mirror hatin’ on myself, I made a decision. It was not something I decided easily. I have never attempted to do anything of the nature before, so careful thought was required. I’ve joined WW.

Some people who know me may be rolling their eyes thinking ‘why in the world would she do such a thing’. To me that is actually flattering. I love that people don’t notice all the rolls and cellulite that I spend a fair amount of time to cover up.

Truth be told however, it is I who must live with this outer shell my creator has supplied me with. After the last year of have little mobility and those horrible steroid injections, my outer shell has gone to shit. I just simply cannot tolerate it any longer which is what was the ultimate decider in the decision to join.

So far, so good. I’ve been to my first meeting (yesterday), and officially started my counting today. I had lunch today at Applebee’s since they have a WW menu. My taste buds were pleasantly surprised by the Onion soup Au Gratin and Teriyaki Steak & Shrimp Skewers. Yummy! Moving on.

After my outing to Applebee’s I went across 71st to my temple, aka Barnes & Noble. I can’t be sure how long I was in there. Three days could pass by and I wouldn’t have a clue. If it weren’t for the Starbucks I was sipping on I could have easily laid down between bookshelves and taken a nap as I inhaled the smell of books. Once I finally forced myself out the doors I headed for home sweet home.

After relaxing at home for awhile and reading nearly an entire book, I made my final step in operation WW. I compiled what I found to be a well rounded grocery list. I do my shopping at the Neighborhood Wally World just behind the apartment, so I was worried they wouldn’t have much of a selection of products. I was pleasantly surprised at what they did carry, and the rest I improvised by reading the nutrition labels on the packaging.

Now I can go to sleep tonight not having to worry about having the proper foods to accommodate my daily point intake. I am doing pretty well so far, so I can only pray that my commitment to the program works. Wish me luck kiddies, I’ll need it!

Take the Phone Off the Hook

Who would’ve thought being on the phone all damn day would be so exhausting? Don’t hear me wrong, I love the people I’m working with at my temp job, but I HATE being on the phone all f-ing day. It is soooo not my thing.

In the meanwhile I’ve been doing the usual of trying to balance my social life with my quest for the ultimate job.  I’ve been contacted by some people whose work shows some real promise. I can only assume one of these opportunities is bound to work out for me. I don’t know how much longer I can take this onthephoneallthefreakingtime shit!

In the whirlwind of everything that’s been going on, I suppose I could mention a few things:

* I spent all afternoon on Friday in urgent care. I was unable to breath and they had to hook me up on oxygen. The doc also had reason to believe that I may have a blood clot in my arm. This has since been labeled as “looking within normal range”, however I have been experiencing so much numbness in my arm I no longer know what to think. Blah.

* I had a run in with a man last night. I’m not going to get into much detail other than this. I have met him several times before. He is a good kisser. I don’t know if I will bother calling him or not.

* According to Bloglines I have at least ten posts that I have yet to read from my blog subscriptions. I cannot wait until things slow down a bit and I am able to get all caught up on my blog reading.

* I am exhausted.

That is all.
