My day

I got up early again, around 5:30, saw J off o work, then watched some tv, had some breakfast, washed some dishes, and made it outside earlier today, but it was still hot as hell. I am over summer. I love warm weather, and my flowers and veggies, but this heat is just ridiculous.

I planted morning glories in one pool, and elephant ears in the other. I also watered and fertilized everything and sat on the porch cooling off a lot. And I cuddled Lily a lot, when she wasn't chasing cats away from HER porch.

I came in early, around 1:30 and had a much needed shower. I had a sandwich of left-over meatloaf fr dinner. I hadn't had that in a while.

Sadly, I go back to work tomorrow.

My day

I got up early - - on purpose - - and took the flower arrangements I made to the cemetery, before it's time for autumn flowers. I went by the house in Rhine to check on things, and discovered the people who bought my aunt and uncle's house have repainted it, which made me kind of sad. I wasn't up to Walmart, so I ran by Piggly Wiggly for a few groceries. J and I had some lunch when I got home, and I intended to go outside and work in the yard, but it was so hot out there and so cool in here, Bucky and I napped for like an hour and a half(and were joined variously by Shuri(more than once), Misty and Fitz. After I was finally able to wake up, I did a few dishes, then went outside, where I sat with Lily and let her nap as long as she wanted. Then I got the garbage together and out to the street. After that, I watered everything - - just watered, didn't do anything strenuous - - and nearly got too hot. I sat down and cooled off, then came in and made dinner.

Loki S1 finale

We watched the last episode of Loki, and I felt it was anti-climactic. But, J and I have watched so much CinemaSins that when THAT character started eating the apple, we both thought the same thing - - "Have him eat an apple, he'll seem like even more of an asshole."

My day

For a Saturday at Walmart, it wasn't awful. Smallish truck last night, so I was free to do stuff that needed doing. It's a small thing, but ever since we got top stock shelves over first aid, I've been trying to get all the first aid overstock off the eyecare riser, and today I did it.

I usually get outside every afternoon, but it's just been to hot lately. 98 degrees when I came through town. But J was very nice and helped me with my latest project. I bought two plastic kid's pools, the $5.88 ones from Walmart, to go in the back yard. We had a small tree cut down and there's a bit of a stump, just enough to trip you. I got J to cut some of the bottom out of the pools, and one's going over the stump, and one down from it, filled with some type of hardy green plant. J even filled them with potting soil for me. We didn't stay out there long.

My day

If we didn't have Thursdays at work, I might feel like ding stuff on my days off. Even if Tue, Wed, Fri and Sat aren't bad, Thu is guaranteed to be. 3500 piece truck last night. Even with getting everything worked by 7, I was running all day, setting features, finding room for sidekicks, working topstock to make room for overstock to keep stuff out of the bin, marking down clearance stuff in pharmacy, labelling overstock(which I whittled down from 3 carts to 1), checking exceptions, telling people no, no school supply lists yet... it was just a long, super-hot day. I picked up dinner and came home - - 96 at the bank when I came by. I actually felt nauseated, maybe from the heat? I didn't get outside at all, just stayed in where it was cool. I'm gradually accomplishing less and less in the afternoons. I'm going to bed. No truck tonight, maybe I can accomplish stuff tomorrow.

My day

I was sorry as hell today, y'all. I did get up early, close to 6. I did my reading, watched tv, maybe napped a little... Shuri and Misty loved that, because they napped in my lap. I finally made it outside at 12, but didn't do much, transplanted a few flowers, watered some stuff, and cuddled Lily.

Dolemite is my Name

Dolemite is my Name

Has anyone seen this? The language is rough and there's some nudity, but I'm a Richard Pryor/Oz/Deadwood/Tarantino fan, so it didn't faze me.

Eddie Murphy is really good in this. The rest of the cast is pretty amazing, too, especially Tituss Burgess, Craig Robinson, Da'Vine Joy Randolph and Wesley Snipes.

But, in all seriousness, is Kodi Smit-McPhee okay? He looks almost anorexic.

My day

Today at work was pretty amazing. It was marred at first by a 2 hour tour of the store, but I still accomplished stuff. I filled the new family planning mod, got some of the magnetic strips on the magnetic strips on the toothpaste mod(something I've been trying to do for a week), finished tidying up the last overstock cart in the back, did price changes, and the customers, for the first time this week, weren't completely insane.

And get this, after work, I called Village Pizza here in Hazlehurst, they answered, had the order ready when they said they would, and it was correct!

I went outside after I ate and tidied up the yard, because weather permitting, the lawn people will be coming tomorrow. Then I sat down, because the humidity was about 100% and I was sweating like crazy. It was so hot and humid, Lily didn't even demand cuddles.

My day

Well, it's been a hell of a day. Work wasn't bad, no truck, so I prettied up the overstock carts in the back.

It was after lunch that all the nuttiness happened. It got busy, too. Nothing brings people to Walmart like rain.

I came back from lunch and an old man, one I knew from previous encounters. I made a major error in judgement and asked if I could help him. He wanted a men's 50+ vitamin. I showed him the Equate, One a Day, and Centrum. He picked up the One a Day and asked, "What brand is this?" I told him(yelled, he is stone deaf) it was a One a Day. "They're all one a day. What brand is it?" I even showed him on the label where the brand is clearly One a Day. I showed him a Centrum one and tried to get him to understand. He did not, but he took the One a Day and left, thank God.

Next, a man came up and asked me where the gift cards were. I told him up front by customer service and took him to them. He asked whoever was on the phone what kind he needed. I figured it was his wife. Turns out it was some guy with an Indian accent, telling him he needed a Visa card and needed to put $200 on it. I told the man I was worried this was a scam and he shouldn't do it. He wasn't elderly. He told me later he was 53. He started talking to the guy, asking him questions and the guy cussed at him. That made him mad, because apparently the scammer had told him earlier he was a Christian. He finally hung up on him when he upped the amount needed on the card to $250.

The last bit of nuttiness was mine. The story starts a few days back. Chocolate melted in my work bag, and I had to wash it, but I forgot about it until Monday night. So I'm using a different bag this week, without enough compartments. I had my keys in the outer pocket, which I was also using for my badge, marker and fan. This afternoon, I took the keys out, and I thought, laid them on a table in the break room, so I could put them and my phone in my pocket and wouldn't need to search for them. Then I did some shopping, got out to the truck... no keys in my pocket. I had emergency ones in my bag, so I found them(no small feat, either) and put my stuff in the truck, then went back inside, asked if anyone had turned in keys... no. No one in the break room had seen them. So, I came on home, and a little while ago, started checking my bag thoroughly. My dumb ass had put them in my vest pocket.

It wasn't all bad... I got to see Ms Betty.
