Life updates

The right side of my face is numb. That's because I just came back from a dentist's appointment, in which two professionals chatted about Amy Winehouse and their dog and buying used furniture as they worked on my teeth. You see, when I was young - I forget exactly when - I went sap-collecting at my grandmother's sugar shack. Somehow, I ended up chipping my tooth on one of the buckets, and I got it filled back in. But that tooth's slowly been darkening, so they polished off the first layer to make it white again. Now, that's not what made the other side of my face numb - I've also had a problem with tooth-grinding at night, which caused some very deep grooves in two of my teeth. Thus, they injected some anaesthetic into the side of my face, and proceeded to make those teeth even. Which accounts for the numbness. It feels supremely strange.

I also called Sobeys to get my training hours. It's still up in the air, but at least I now know decisively the department they put me in - Salad Bar. I'm going to be chopping things all day! Yay! (I'm also gonna have to wear a hair net, but whatevs.)

Oh wow.

So apparently, I have a job now. Or no. It's training, really, and I have to pick up a training package at Sobeys tomorrow. Because of my terrible last job, I'm reticent about getting a new job, especially since they told me that part-time can go up to 32 hours a week. Which, if I'm continuing throughout the fall, I most certainly cannot do.

Nevertheless, it's exciting to think that I have a job. But in the interview, she made the job - cashiering - sound pretty hard, as I have a certain rhythm that I have to pick up. I have to ask customers if they've found everything, if they have their Sobeys card, if they want one, if they want their groceries bagged, etc. And it's scary to think that I have to read all the material in the training package. Still, that's one step up from Tim Hortons, who put me on the job with no training. My training at Timmy's was to stand and know how to use everything, immediately. So that's good to know. Plus, so what if I make a mistake? My mantra right now is "What do I have to fear?" They apparently have an incredibly thorough training program including shadowing (standing beside someone and learning how they do it) and knowing how everything works and stuff like that. The interviewer said it usually takes 3-5 weeks to get through training. Personally, I find going through a long period of training to be a hell of a lot better than having it said to me, "Learn everything! Now! While customers are in line and waiting for their coffee!" Plus, free uniforms. Nice perk. (And hopefully I'll get a name-tag this time! :D)

I didn't tell my flist about this interview, since I've had so many interviews that have led to nothing. And yet, this was what I call a "non-interview" - they explain to you what the job's about, what hours you'll be working, and how the company works, but ask you no questions apart from "Do you have any questions for me?" Every time I've had a "non-interview," it's a good sign, since it means that they're desperate and they don't want to interview anybody.

Oh my gosh, now I'm excited. I was so freaked out when I started writing this, and now my only fear is that training package. Which I will most certainly be able to do. I have a job!

Unceremoniously, the two poppers of the competition (in So You Think You Can Dance) were booted out, one by one. D: Yes, my beloved Patty Ann is gone. I'm sad that I don't get to see her own brand of thrilling androgyny anymore. And when it was announced that the two sisters (whose names I don't remember, but there's a big one and a skinny one and they're ADORABLE) were gonna be split up thanks to one of them getting injured, I was like "I'm done with this show." I'll probably be there watching with my mom, tomorrow, though :/

So incredibly cool :D

Excellent news: my mom and I got tickets to go to see the Idols on tour! This is my first year going, and I thought it would be an impossibility. But we'll be there! I'm so excited. Even if it is in September that we're going, it's still awesome. I love this year. This has truly been one of my favourite seasons. I don't dislike a single person in the top 11. I'm gonna get to see Haley and Lauren and Naima (hope she dances, omg) and Jacob (!!!!!!!) IN PERSON. IN PERSON! THEY'RE MY IDOLS. YAAAAY
