I Knew He Was Real!

My boss just texted me to say that her son who is at that age where it is questionable if he would still believe in Santa or not woke up and came running in saying Santa had put candy canes on his tree last night (each of the kids has a little christmas tree in their room, actually she has a christmas tree in every room of her house at christmas time). But none of them put more candy canes on the tree and he insists there are ones that were not here the night before! How cute!

P.s. paul you have 2 minutes to arrive at mom's before your gifts are forfeited and become mine!

Days of our LIves

I love the annual Days of Our Lives where the Hortons all get together and hang the christmas ornaments with their names on thme on the tree. It doesn't matter whose baby is stolen, who is possessed by the devil, who is sleeping with the priest, on christmas they get together and hang ornaments and i love it!

I will always clap for fairies!

I was reading this article in a magazine and the last paragraph I just really like and really is how I feel so I thought I would write it here. It was an article about Santa Claus by Alexander McCall Smith:

There is a moment in J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan when the audience is invited to revive the dying fairy Tinkerbell and told, "if you believe in fairies, clap your hands." And every time, the theater breaks into sustained applause. That is not to suggest there are theaters full of seriously deluded people. What it does tell us is that there are times when we need to pretend to believe in things we know not to be true. WE know that the world is a place of suffering and hardship, and we know, too, that justice and kindness and love and such things will not always prevail against these hard realities. Myths help us to get by. The day they all die and we tell our children exactly how things are, the world will be a poorer, less enchanted place. So don't be ashamed to clap your hands at Peter Pan or act as if Santa exists. He stands for kindness and generosity, and those things are alive and will continue to be alive- as long as we believe in them.

As a side note, as I'm sure most of you can imagine, I believed in Santa for so long and long after I was pretty sure it wasn't the real deal and everyone tried to convince me he was fake, I still wanted to believe so bad. I refused to give up. When it comes down to it, I still do believe, even if I put out cookies and noone eats them, I'll just assume Santa was full, not that he doesn't exist! It's just too sad to imagine!

Random Rascists

SO who does these things? These things are case number 1:

1. A customer came in and wanted us to transfer an RX from a different location that he goes to. Becasue he has medicaid his insurance doesn't allow us to transfer between locations so he screams out "DON"T MAKE ME GO BACK TO N***** TOWN". Like at the top of his lungs in a store. What a jerk!

then case number 2, prolly worse

2. I am cashing out a customer and his copays are high and he says to me something along the lines of "these copays are ridiculous we need another HItler to kill the jews and the rich people!" OMG!!! How do you freakin respond to that? I just didn't say anything! I am like wow I should rlaly say something cuz tough the customer is always right, that time I think I would be justified in saying they were not! Can you even believe that? Do you people still really think like that? IT was insanity! I just was like um your toatl is whatever and ignored it completely. BUT WTF WHO DOES THAT?

Glitter Glue

Glitter glue is never on sale anywhere! as a heavy glitter user the cost really starts to add up for the good glitter glue. Each bottle does not really hold that much when you really like to make something shimmer!!! i watch all year but never not once is it ever on would think maybe around christmas time with people making cards and stuff it would be cuz everythign else is on sale! I want my glitter glue and i want it cheap!

Call Me Sir?

So me and (e:mk) went to the Eastern Hills mall for some post thanksgiving shopping and while it was busier than normal it wasn't too crazy cuz that mall is never too crazy, except the bonton that was relaly crazy. There was one thing I wanted that was on super sale but i did not wait cuz the lines were redic!!!! That was the only place that was like that, i don't think they had better stuff it just was that thye had far fewer cashiers!

Anywho that is not the point of this story. I went to American Eagle where I am probably becoming a little too old to shop and I haven't bought anything in a while and the like 16 year old guy worker hands me the like coupon thing they were givin gout and says "here you go sir" and when I was leaving he said "have a nice day sir". Now i prolly have been called sir before but something about tihs time seemed so harsh , it definitely felt like he was saying it in a "Have a nice day old man, be careful not to trip on your wlaker on the way out" or "Here you go old geezer maybe you can find a nice gift here for your grand kids" it made me feel really old, like reals old!!! bleh, all in all though i got some good shopping done today. I even went to target at like 930 and they still had the doorbuster sale iten I wanted and there was like noone in line! SCORE!

Adam Lambert..

annoys me..he think she is so cool and controversial and I find him rather annoying. LIke I think if you have a like pop song written for you after winning American Idol about not being an angel and good but being bad then really you are not bad. If you're bad and so dangerous you don't need a pop song to tell the world about it. It is so contrived in my opinion. I know his performance on the AMA's last night was so controversial because of the sexiness of it but really I just watched it and it was like so like not really that bad at all. Oh the whole thing just annoys me. It was so I'm doing this to do this and be controverisal cuz this is actually waht i want to do or am about. bleh. bleh. bleh.

Sitcoms..I love em

So on Wednesday night I decided to stay home and watch the sitcoms on ABC. They were The Middle, Modern Family and COugar Town. Well I actually only saw part of Cougar town and they had two episodes of Modern Famliy. MOdern Family and The Middle were hilarious! I really thought they were funny and entertaining and I really enjoyed watching a sitcom which I feel like I don't end up watching that much. I feel like I see lots of murder, crime , police shows and it was a really nice change of pace to see happy funny times on sitcoms. I think I am gonna watch more sitcoms and less makes me happier. THe little kid on the Middle is sooo hilarious! You should def check it out!
