I really like working at Pier 1. I admit that I was nervous when my actual manager came back to work after her maternity leave. She is a young, direct and succinct person. This is an interesting mix.
She does like to talk about her baby though and I love to talk about babies and it is one of the few topics I will shut up long enough to listen to. I have also answered questions on pump problem solving and maintenance. Those years at Noble Birth have come in handy.
My manager has also laughed today about my cheerful acceptance of any task. My family thinks to is funny given how I often whine about tasks at home.
I actually dealt with some of those tasks today. I finally got Sprinklekit's clarinet to the shop and they actually had time to make the minor fixes right there. Just a couple of missing screws. Now if they could just do something about mine. (Ha!)
Also after putting it off for a month, I finally got the girls in for haircuts. I got a trim myself as well. Just a clean line and a little framing around the face.
On the way from school to fantastic Sam's the girls were playing Lily Allen's Him for me and I started singing One Of Us... Sprinklekit and I thought that they sounded scarily good together.
The girls also have me enjoying a few of the Psychostick songs. I love humor music in general, but sometimes I have a hard time getting past the combination of screaming and profanity in some of Psychostick's songs.
