whew. just finished two more overnight shifts at Chapters, but it's done, and over. We are re-merched, and it looks pretty good if I do say so myself. Before I tell you a story from that experience, I have to say a couple things.|
1) school is brutal. I can't believe how many freaking assignments there are. I have done more work in the last month and a half than I did in FOUR YEARS of university. Also, I have completely read (cover to cover) THREE textbooks.
2) Lesley and Chris, I can't believe how big Peter is getting! He doesn't look almost 5 months. He's a big lad, but still preciously adorable, don't worry. He's not like some of those freak babies out there, like the obese ones on Maury.
3) We got kicked out of Oktoberfest for excessive drunkenness. I didn't know that was possible at Oktoberfest.
Ok, now the story. Helping us re-merch was a boy named Luke who used to work there, and is friends with Brad. He came to lend a hand. Last night we were eating lunch and he told us about a girl who moved here from India and has the most unfortunate name. Actually, it's a beautiful name, it's just an unfortunate spelling. Her name is pronounced SHHH-THH-EEED.
PS. does anyone else fight the urge to weep uncontrollably when they hear Amazing Grace on bagpipes? I do. Damn you Afghan Misson.
