I'm here! For a change! Work is going well. I had a terrible day on monday. We've had a communications problem with the waitresses. They seem to think that if they sprint to our tables ahead of us, and take all of the cocktail orders, and then hand it to us to go run to the bar, they're entitled to our entire tip. So the manager talked to them. So then they set out to prove the we cocktail waitresses are superfluous. Let me put it this way. It was so horrible I cried. How many of you have ever seen me cry? So right now we're treading a very narrow ledge as the management tries to sort us all out. The waitress in question has been talked to, not that it really changed anything. At least tonight it the Barbeque. I can have the wine all to myself tonight -- sell as much as I want with no interference. We'll see how it goes!

Drea and I are working on a quilt. It's been very exciting so far. Good bonding time and all that. Last night, we discovered that we'd put three of the strips on backwards and had to undo nearly half of our work. Suddenly quilting isn't QUITE as much fun anymore!

Here I am. I can assume that everyone has now stopped reading this, since I haven't been able to update it more than once every fortnight or so (yes, I'm reading Jane Austin again....) Work has evolved into a schedule. I only work evenings, so I spend my days finding stuff to do. I've been working on a quilt, jogging or biking almost every day, playing with my kitty (her name is Chloe - she's the sweetest cat ever!), cleaning my sister and my very diminuative room, or going to the library. I'll soon be volunteering there a few hours a week. No dating yet. I hope that will change soon...
