It's Friday!

That means it's time for the Friday Random 10. Try not to wet yourselves.


  1. You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison-My Chemical Romance
  2. Rabbit Fur Coat-Jenny Lewis
  3. It's All Good-Cold
  4. Red-Eyed and Blue-Wilco
  5. She's Like Heroin-System of a Down
  6. As I Watch the Sun Fuck the Ocean-Boy Hits Car
  7. Given To Fly-Pearl Jam
  8. Seed-Korn
  9. Number Five with a Bullet-Taking Back Sunday
  10. Root-Deftones

Favorite Song-As I Watch the Sun Fuck the Ocean. What they don't tell you is that the Ocean cried "No!!! Stop Mr. Sun it hurts!!"....but the Sun wouldn't listen.

Least Favorite Song-Rabbit Fur Coat. I like Jenny Lewis when she's with Rilo Kiley, but her solo album I only find to be decent.

Favorite Album-It's way too hard for me to pick a favorite between Korn's Follow the Leader, Deftones' Adrenaline, Cold's 13 Ways to Bleed on Stage, and Boy Hits Car. So I won't. Do something about it.



I got my haircut today. My new barber is named Michael. He took over for my old barber, Kelly. Kelly had a stroke a couple months ago.

Michael did not start off on the right foot with me though. For some reason he shaved off my sideburns without me telling him too. For the first time since I was 16 I don't have sideburns and I feel absolutely naked.

On the plus side when I comb my hair back, I kinda look like a young John Gotti.



Yesterday I had to work the camera counter all day. Linda's mother in law died on Wednesday so I had to cover for her. I seldom work the camera counter, and every time I do I'm completely shocked at the amount of people who buy alcohol at 830AM on a Thursday morning.

I feel like I live in a college town. This whole place is full of drunks.

Also I've learned that some things never fail. When I ring up an elderly woman who likes to talk a lot, no customers ever get in line behind her. This allows the woman to ramble on about a bunch of people I don't know nor care about for 15 minutes. The whole time I'm sit there forced to wear my fake smile and nod my head while inside I think to myself "Die already!!!"

Of course the second the attractive young Italian girl starts talking to me about 8 drunks with boxes of wine jump in line and demand service, prompting my new friend to tell me she better leave cuz I'm busy.

Assholes.

This same principle also works anytime a friend calls me. I could be sitting there for 45 minutes without seeing a soul, but the second someone calls me I get bumrushed by people.

It's like my boss is sitting upstairs watching me on camera and punking me all day long.



Speaking of my bosses. Here's an actual note I left to my boss Mark before I left today. Just so you all get an idea how seriously I take my job.

Mark,

I did the majority of the audits on Friday afternoon. Seeing that I am but one mere mortal I was not able to complete them all. I am a failure. While I ponder continuing this charade I call a life, I will leave you with a list of the sections that need to be done, and that I did. (I only include what I did cuz I still got 5 minutes to kill before I can leave.)

NOT DONE

  • Seasonal
  • Bulk
  • Canes
  • Checkstands

DONE

  • First Aid
  • Foot Care
  • Pharmacy
  • Lightbulbs
  • Endcaps
  • Wings
  • Cosmetic Promos
  • Bakeshop

After thinking about it, I've decided against killing myself. That would be the easy way out and I don't deserve such mercy.

See Ya Sunday,

Tom



Picture of the Day

Kevin in 20!!

I hope everyone has a good Memorial Day weekend. As for myself I am going to the Italian-American Cultural Center on Sunday before work as they have a new exhibit for Memorial Day in which they have included my late grandpa.

Monday I'm planning on going fishing with my dad and Jack King. So in case I don't see you all again before then, Happy Memorial Day.

Keepin It Real Since 1980,

Tom
