Oh My Holy Freaking Cow

I think I'm going insane. No, really, I mean it this time. For one, I was lying in bed last night, and I heard a bird. Although unless he's a ventriloquist, it isn't Earl, it's more of a "chirrup" sort of sound. We only have weensy trees on this side of the building, why oh WHY is yet another bird coming to torment me? Do I have some giant only-visible-to-birds target on me? I think this has ruined my ability to appreciate birds. Perhaps for life. Darn.

Now onto the big news. Nope, wait, I can't say the big news yet. Because I hate spoiling surprises. Suffice it to say that I was very, very excited when I heard this news. And then I panicked a little, and went to giggling to myself all last night pretty much. I tend to do that when I'm excited. I want this to stay under wraps, for now, even though it's killing me, it'll be that much sweeter when the day come. Watch this space. And follow the links if you're dying to know.

I do have other big news, though. As some of you may know, I am not coordinated. I am a writer and a singer, but I can't draw worth anything. Or write legibly for that matter. But, as of yesterday, I am an artiste. A sandwich artiste. Because too much time plus not enough money equals- Nettie got another job at Subway. Although it may produce spectacular, linktastic blogs, sitting round at home don't pay those bills. I've only really worked twice, but some things are obvious:

At Bath and Body Works, we wear aprons to look cute and to carry all our female junk around in. At Subway, aprons are so you don't get mustard at your pants. When I'm in the mall, all I get to drink is what I bring, unless someone makes a Chick-Fil-A run and brings me free water. During my first shift at Subway, after pulling a double at BBW running off that water and half a Peach Fanta, I think I filled the 20-ounce cup with Sprite five times in the first hour. Use your imagination on that. Because I do just like to think that I can juggle it all...

Oh, and you may simply end up juggling time at the counter with time in the ladies' room.

Looking forward to hearing the big surprise.

Hope you won't be too worn out doing your studies, old job and new job - whilst hearing birds and cows at night that prevent you from going to sleep!

Don't drink too much - you will be in the loo all your shift if you do!

Very cool, Nettie! Now your presence shalle exude itself all over my local mall. Since I work at the mall, and your presence is there, I shall think of you every day! And we've never met. What a shame.

My favorite is Spicy Italian, which isn't shown on the menu anymore, but they always make it for me. Is it the same as the BMT??

Yes, bills must be paid. I love going to Subway. I wonder why they did away with the "stamp" program for a free sub? Good luck on your new job. Take your vitamins.

They eliminated it because people were selling the cards on Ebay.

Can I get a discount, or some extra bacon and cheese at least because I'm your best friend?

Good luck with the new Subway gig.

Don't work too hard Nettie--you and your bladder. :)

PS. I hate surprises. E-mail me...

You take good care of your sweet little self, honey girl. Nothing on earth is more important than your health.

Just checking in, guess you've been busy making subs! Hope you're having a blessed weekend!!!!!

Now I'll smile twice a day, once when I pass a B&B and once when I pass a Subway...thanks for the smiles my friend!

The two Stac(e)ys have such similar comments, that is bizarre. I guess Stac(e)ys think alike.

Technically, they're supposed to be honoring the promotion until August 9th, so enjoy it while you can...

Breed specific legislation otherwise known as "BSL" has started to sweep the world, Germany, Canada. The United States, France, and England are among the major countries that have enacted some form of breed specific law that restricts or calls for a complete ban on several breeds from existing peacefully with their borders.
