11.28.12 - Same camera, different settings...

Today was extremely rainy and windy. The clouds are starting to clear which makes for a beautiful sky... so I rushed out with my camera (Panasonic LUMIX DMC-SZ7)
 w/o flash or any setting adjustments...

w/o flash and with "scenery" setting
w/ flash and with "night scenery" setting

All in all, I love how all of them came out... I really love the colors! This is a total and completely random post.

11.26.12 - Working on Thanksgiving & Black Friday weekend leads to shopaholic tendencies

Two more days...just TWO more days and this weekend will be over. What am I talking about? Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and my very own Tragic Tuesday.

The parents came here on Wednesday night. I told them before that I was working on Thanksgiving. In fact, I volunteered to work on Thanksgiving because no one was going to be home but myself. I thought I'd just go to work. Two of the cashiers (luckily, it's people I get along with) also volunteered.

I didn't know that my manager (actually, ALL managers in all the departments and the store managers) was going to be there. 

I had made my Thanksgiving dinner early (on Wednesday). I baked a chicken and some potatoes and made some rice. Yep, that was it. Lol! I slept early so I could go to work at 8:45am on Thanksgiving day.

When I got to work, I noticed all the usual Black Friday barriers we put up every year, but I noticed the employee's side of the parking lot had a lot of cars; but no people in line. O_O; so I kind of panicked and thought I was late. It turned out that the other departments were there earlier to set up for our day.

11.11.12 - Oatmeal baths?

I think it's kind of funny that no one likes the new supervisor. I think she's okay. I think the other supervisors don't like her either because she's not going to close, ever. Which isn't fair. We, also, found out how she got promoted before me and the other supervisor that applied. Basically, favoritism and not from our side...but on the corporate side. Oh well...

Last week was kind of a bad week. I had a paid day off, but didn't get to have any fun because of my car. My car decided it didn't want to work on Monday. I had orders to ship off and was planning to go to the nearby "post office" (a tiny counter in the Bel-Air market a few blocks away). I planned on getting some almond milk too,  but my car didn't start. I tried a few times and it still didn't work.

I didn't know what to do, so I called the only person I knew that knew about cars. Edgar, my co-worker. I don't like people knowing where I live and now he does. Oh well... He came and checked it out and he said it sounded like something with my battery. He said it might have died.
