ugh i have a really bad feeling about the rest of this week.

how am i gonna move in by myself, train for team leader, train for work, finish inventory for my camp job, baby-sit, and attend a funeral all in one week???

i dont think i can handle more than one of these things at a time. this may be a problem.

i remember, as a kid, thinking that maybe if i broke enough dishes while cleaning up after dinner, i would never be asked by my parents to do the dishes again. but, being the non-rebel that i was in my younger younger years, i never got enough balls to really do that on purpose.

however, my last night of waitressing has made me really wish that i had broken a few of those dinner plates when i was 9. it seems that i screwed up the salad bar so bad that one night that i walked out, they made the other waitresses do it for me tonite!

so yeah last nite of grahmms was pretty hot. too bad i dont get to see the cute little oh-so-easy-to-seduce 16yr old busboy one last time. i'll have to wait until i go back there on one of my breaks from college.

oh well. he can just be my christmas present. :)

I'm back. I was down the shore, but it seems as though I either didn't tell anyone, or else everyone forgot. Anyhow, big props to Sheri... it was nice to know someone would call with 5 days if I went missing for real. I mean, technically, I could've been kidnapped and thrown into the Schuylkill by now, but no harm, no foul.;)

Oh, and Linda, you should invite your boss... that is if he's not really old. Egyptians? Sounds dark and mysterious to me.

And I am doing that google thing, cause it was really funny.
Directions: type "(your name) is" with the quotes, into a google search then pick out your favorite five responses. copy, then repost your responses:
1. Christine is nothing if not entertaining during dinner. (well obviously)
2. Christine is looking for investors to help her to produce two television programs. One of them will be entitled "How To Connect To Your Spirit Guides And Angels" and the other "Haunted Places In Canada."
3. Christine is part of a team that works for United Mission to Nepal (UMN) in the rural district of Sunsari, which is located in the Tarai region, a lowland, tropical area of Nepal, 500 kilometres south east of the capital, Kathmandu.
4. Christine is a 300lb woman, but people who have known Christine tell me that this number is a bit too generous.
5. Christine is the place to be. (open bar and free for ladies on Wednesdays... what's not to like?)

Hmmm, as I was searching, I came up with this weird site that has all these "Christine is" phrases... basically the same game I was just doing. Here's the page... http://www.googlism.com/when_is/c/christine/
