One Thing Taken Care Of

Despite the fact that Paypal's down right now for "weekly maintenance", I've received an email stating the following:

"The electronic funds transfer from your bank account to your PayPal account for the amount of $2.00 CAD has been completed. The funds are now reflected in your PayPal account balance."

So good. $2.00 isn't alot, yes, but at least things should be alot more convenient now that I don't have to worry about sending money orders out :p No email from SPark yet though, but I simply keep telling myself "maybe tomorrow".

Work was decent, aside from the couple times I couldn't help thinking "Oh how I want to be at the furmeet", but feh. Michelle never showed up though (apparently she was sick), which was one of the worse parts of the night. Another one was that Mark got called, and asked to go close in Windsor, of all places :s Apparently *all* their managers called in sick (very very very slim coincidence, perhaps?), so yeah. I do look forward to asking him what it was like next time I see him though.

That aside, it wasn't terribly busy either, but something was wrong with each and every single headset battery, so a sign was posted on the menu board instructing customers to drive up to the window. Feh. I ended up closing the dining room though, and after that, was put on line so Ange could get her stuff done. Aside from frying some cinnamon twists and helping Jess with the dishes, she didn't do a whole lot :\

Back tomorrow with the same crew, as I already said in a previous entry, and hopefully Michelle actually shows up, because although she doesn't yet know how to close, the extra help will really be nice.

And one other thing about work. All of Alec's shifts have now been scratched out. I didn't have the nerve to ask "Do you know what's going on with Alec?", but I have two guesses. Either he quit, or they're doing the same thing they did with me after I didn't take very well to closing multiple nights in a row as soon as I started working there - give him one shift a week, and as soon as he's proven that he can handle that, bump him up to two, and so on. Unfortunately, that's alot less likely than him having just quit, but you never know...

But for now, it's time to send Michele an email to see if she wants me to come in this Wednesday, then off upstairs to put on a tail, then back down here to see if there's anything to eat. All I had at work was a nacho bell with only beef, nacho cheese, and sour cream on it (and that was at ~7:30), so I'm rather hungry now~

So... Hot...

I hate to say it, but this fan just isn't cutting it, and it's at the highest speed it can go :\ Unfortunately, I can't for the life of me think of a place outside of Staples and Walmart that might have others. Well, there is that place sort of over by 7-11 on St. Clair St, but looking in the window of the building before, it looked like they only had ceiling fans, and that's not what I'm after. Ugh. I suppose one alternative would be to simply move the tails that are in my chair somewhere else for the time being, then just lay in that, but I find it incredibly difficult to fall asleep standing up.

Well, there's that, and also I could try either sleeping downstairs in the living room or something, or in the basement, but even when I slept in the living room a couple times last summer, I couldn't actually fall asleep until I came back up here to my room :x

Feh. So it's time to try just getting comfortable in my chair for now, and if that doesn't do anything, then hopefully I can think of somewhere else that'd sell more... powerful fans. This one I have here is alright downstairs or whatever, but it's absolutely pathetic up here.

That's a relief. Got a reply back from Michele saying that she didn't need me in this week, but that I should email her sometime next, to see if she needs me in then. Not a word from SPark yet, however, I sent another reply off to her asking if it had arrived yet, so hopefully when I get home from work tonight I'll have a better idea of what's going on.

And as for the heat problem this morning, it was much better once I got to sleep. I'd like to know where I got "falling asleep standing up" in my previous entry from, but whatever. All I know is I finally drifted off to sleep, woke up again around 1, with no blanket covering me whatsoever, then went back to sleep again 'till 4:10, then 'till 5:10 again after that. The air conditioning is actually on right now, which is surprising, because just yesterday, I heard Mom say something about how Dad was trying to keep it off for as long as possible, in an effort to save money.

Meh. So he leaves tomorrow, and it's the only night 'till Sunday that I have off. Although I plan on seeing who's working Sunday, and if Manoah is, asking if he wants to switch shifts with me, because I really don't want to have to be there on Monday night. I still have it in my head that as long as I keep my Mondays open, I'll eventually figure out some other way to get down to London, so yes. I know it's pathetic~

As for tonight, I can't picture things going all that well, but all I really care about is 2:00 rolling around. These sorts of shifts (the ones followed by a day off) are always fun :3

... and there we go. The title of another tab I have opened here has now changed to "Gmail - Inbox (1)". Pity I probably won't be able to bring myself to read it 'till I get home from work. It's just... one of those things.

I should probably go get my uniform on now~
