Looong Day at Work

Whew! Nine hours later I am finally back home from my killer all day shift at the mall. The thing that makes it sooo bad is that NO ONE want to shop these days, so the day goes by sooo slow. We did get some excitement towards the end of the night by catching a couple of shoplifters. It is so surprising to me how often this happens. At least once a day someone steals from us, we only occasionally catch them. I just was so unaware of how much this occurred until after I worked in retail.

So this morning I woke up bright and early so I could get ready and have breakfast before work. If I dont eat at home my only options are greasy biscuits from the food court! So I had my usual wheat toast with two kinds of preserves and cottage cheese. I always put the cottage cheese on top of the toast and eat it like that, I promise its good. Just another weird food thing that I like. :)


  • Two Slices of Wheat Toast with Apricot Preserves and Blackberry Preserves
  • 1/2 Cup Fat Free Cottage Cheese with Blueberries and a Sprinkle of Cinnamon

I packed up my lunch for work in an attempt to eat healthier/save money, but I did not get a pic! It was the usual Mighty Maple and Banana Sandwich with some Okios (for dipping). haha

When I finally got home I was completely exhausted and pretty hungry, so I made some spaghetti with some leftover roasted zucchini and squash that they had on sale at the grocery store yesterday.


  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Spaghetti Noodles
  • Hunt's Basil and Mushroom Pasta Sauce
  • Chopped Zucchini and Squash
  • Broccoli
  • LOADS of Pepper and Basil

Now I am ready to take a nice hot bath and hit the bed! But first let me just tell you what I am doing this Saturday, that I am kinda excited/scared shitless about. Im working as a model for Jack Daniels at the NASCAR race this weekend!! haha. My friend called me the other day and asked me if I wanted to do it with her and I said yes! I dont know how many of you are familiar with NASCAR, but it is HUGE around here. I personally do not follow it and have never even seen a race. But I live about 30 minutes from Bristol, where they have the Bristol Motor Speedway and the Food City 500. My city is always PACKED with people during race weekend. Im talking bumper to bumper all weekend long. Anyways, they always hire tons of girls to work at the sponsor booths and I'm gonna do it this year! I have no idea what to expect and I will be working there from 630 in the morning until 7 that night! It should be good money, but I am SCARED! Everyone cross your fingers that it goes well and that I do not die!

ALSO, everyone needs to tune into the ETSU/PITT basketball game tomorrow at 245. Its the first round of the NCAA tournament and it just so happens to be MY school against the lovely SAM"S school. And we may or may not have a small bet going on for the game ;). Personally, I have a feeling I am gonna lose, BIG. But I still think we win when it comes to cutest players. Just look at these our boys!

Hope everyone has a good start to their weekend tomorrow! Lots of Love, <3 Ems.

Good luck with your NASCAR gig. It sounds like it'll be a lot of fun!

My money's on Pitt. They're right down the street from me and I'm worried that there would be some crazy rioting if they lost. Actually, there will probably be some crazy stuff going down if they win, too. You should see what mayem happened when the Steelers won the Superbowl. Pittsburgh's college kids went nuts!

That is crazy about the shop lifters! Did you have to call the Mall Cops?

Good luck with he NASCAR modeling! Sound like is should be interesting. Hope you have a blast ;)

Stef said...

Whoa crazy shoplifters! Which store do you work at?

I know next to nothing about Nascar because it's not too big in California but this weekend should be a cool experience! I just hope you don't get your ass pinched by too many drunk guys ;)

Mica said...

Whoa, Nascar modeling. That's...way more interesting than my weekend plans (read, eat, run).

Hahaha, I laughed when I thought about you running down some shoplifters and saying, "STOP! In the name of the law!"
