Happy Halloween

Hi friends, thank you to Missie for the awesome tag above.That earthquake last night brought back bad memories from the 1989 quake that was a 7.2, the biggest one I have ever felt.That was a very scary day and one I will never forget. I was off work today and I went to the exercise room for a while, after my workout I noticed a honeybee on it's back in the swimming pool fighting for it's life.I took my keys and flipped it out of the pool so I did my good deed for the day.Hopefully the little bee lived.I hope you all are having a fun Halloween, I know all of you with little kids or grandkids had fun taking them out for treats, I loved Halloween as a kid.It is still one of my favorites as far as holidays, all fun and no hype , I hope you all have a great Halloween night , tommorow is Thursday, CSI night.I thought the crossover episode was tommorow night for some reason but tommorow is a Halloween themed CSI- should be interesting for sure.Have a good one everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Nothing like an earthquake to rattle your nerves

Hi friends, I was trying to relax in the bath tonight when an 5.6 earthquake happened and scared the hell out of me. It was centered in Alum Rock , near San Jose.The tub was shaking and all the stuff on the edges of my tub was falling in the water, I'm ok, there is no damage, but my nerves are a little shaken, Mr Diva is a little scared, made sure I gave him a couple of cat treats to calm him down, Hopefully there wo'nt be any more earthquakes tonight, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Happy Halloween All

Hi guys, hope you all had a good day before Halloween.I worked today and the first sight to greet me when I walked was Cyndie with her big tummy hanging out of the bottom of her shirt.There was also a man from Corporate there too Colin.I wonder what Colin thinks of how Cyndie dresses, guess she just thinks she is bad ass or something.When I walked by Cyndie I did'nt bother wasting a "Hello" to her, I just gave her a polite nod and went to punch in.She did'nt stay too long which in my book is always a good thing, she will be busy tommorow night flying on her broom in the skies, I'm bad I know ;) This lady and I got to talking at my register today and she told me that in her opinion the people of San Mateo were "The rudest of the Bay Area" Wow I am not alone in my thoughts then, she did'nt even live around here either but she said it was an observation , she said "People do'nt feel obligated to be nice" Yup that is pretty much the truth, it's really sad these days people have to be so damn rude , my heart goes out to anybody who works retail or works at a busy store during the holidays, it is truly a nightmare, bears are so lucky, they can hibernate through the winter.I wish I could transform myself into a bear for the whole month of December.That is my unmost favorite time of the year working, the real ugliness comes out in some people I see in my store and it's very unsettling.Anyhow hope you all have a Happy and safe Halloween tommorow night, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Trying to get out of my funk

 Hi friends, thank you to Missie for the oh so -cute tag above .I was feeling tired and sluggish today from Mr Red.I did errands and later went to work out for 40 minutes.I am trying to get out of the funky mood I have been in lately.Work can be a good distraction sometimes , but I do need more in my life.Being alone really sucks and I think going back to school would be good for me.I want to move from here in June and start fresh in a new town .I really do'nt like it here, I have never felt at home here and in almost three years time it's doubtful I ever will.I ca'nt believe Halloween is this Wednesday, I am off work too, working tommorow though, Robin wanted me to come in at 10:00 a.m. , should 'nt be too busy.We are sold out of most of the candy already, Costco or any big chain store probably still has lots left.It is dark already at 7:30 p.m. daylight savings time drives me nuts.I hope you all have a good Tuesday, I Love You All Lisa XOXO, By the way did all of you that I sent the World Market coupons to recieve them ? Let me know ok.................. I hope you all did, I sent one to my friend Anna and it was stolen in the mail :(

Not much to say

  Hi friends, this is my second attempt writing this entry.I was feeling a little sad today , it is starting to sink in that Jorja will be leaving the show next month and it sucks.I am so afraid that once she leaves CSI she will disappear from TV forever and that makes me so sad.I may not want to watch CSI after she leaves because I am afraid the show may become stupid, I mean I am not liking those articles about a so-called new love interest for Grissom after Sara leaves.It does'nt sound very Grissom -like to me for him to quickly move on to someone else right after Sara leaves, I mean he did state in Living Doll that Sara was the only person he ever loved so seriously WTH ? I just think once Jorja leaves I wo'nt like the direction the show will go in, Just my thoughts, I know some of you may think I am being ridiculous about this but picture your favorite person leaving a show you loved to watch and how you would feel.I told you guys way back in September if Jorja left I would be sad and it was true.Ok enough CSI bitching.I did errands today and now it looks like it wants to rain out, Chrissie thank you for posting the daylight savings time entry this morning, I swear I thought it was this weekend, but wow it is late this year being next weekend.Halloween is this coming Wednesday and I am off work for the first time in years, maybe having Greg around wo'nt be so bad, he seems like an ok guy so far.Cindy you have been in my thoughts all day, hugs to you.Angie I am glad you are home safe from your trip, I missed you.Missie you are in my thoughts too,  I hope you all have a good upcoming week, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Saturday Thoughts

  Hi friends, hope you all had a good Saturday.I worked for a few hours today.Greg was there and he helped me do a online return .I never realized what a pain in the neck it was to do an online return in our store.Thank God I do'nt get them very often.The store was pretty busy today and the 6 hours I was there flew by fast.I ca'nt believe Halloween is this coming Wednesday, OMG it came fast.I thought for sure I would be working that day but I'm not.I am off for the next two days , yea !!!!! My new glasses are ready so I have to pick them up tommorow, also sometime next month I have to take Mr Diva to the vets in Pacifica for some shots.He seems healthy though being an indoor cat but sometimes shots are still neccesary anyway.Let me know you guys like the candy bar cookies that make them.I have'nt tried them yet but I am sure they are delicious.Have a good Sunday everyone,I ca'nt believe October is almost over, it went by so fast ,  I Love You All Lisa XOXO

The Return of Mr Red

 Hi friends, I was'nt going to do another entry, but what the hell ? I went shopping earlier and suddenly was doubled over with killer cramps.I have'nt had a period in two months and then boom it came today, sorry to my male readers if that is TMI.Anyhow I came home, slept for a while and feel a little better now , just really tired.I have noticed lately in the mornings it is really dark , daylight savings time will soon be here.I do'nt like when it gets dark earlier , it affects my moods.Maybe I should talk to my doctor about that next time I see her.It happens every year like clockwork right after Halloween .Work should be interesting tommorow, hopefully I will get to know Greg a little better, he seems alright, I do'nt know him too well yet, I am still a little depressed about Jorja leaving CSI in November, it makes it even worse then her leaving is timed around November sweeps , usually during Christmas season when the shows take a month long break it drives me nuts, but this time it wo'nt even faze me,  but I think after Jorja leaves CSI I wo'nt watch it anymore except reruns.It would be too sad for me to watch the show without her.Lately I have been getting into Cold Case and I'm sorry I did'nt start watching it before.It's a really good show.I hope you all have a good and relaxing weekend, Cindy you are in my thoughts, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Thursday Thoughts

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Thursday.I worked today and it was a pretty quiet day.I noticed there were huge crowds out in the Food Court , When it was around 3:30 p.m. Robin imformed me Cyndie was coming by for a visit, ugh not again, thank God by the time I was going home at 4:00 I heard her and Robin talking in the office so I quietly left thanking God she did'nt see me .Tonight's CSI is a repeat and not really a very good episode, however next's week's show is going to rock because it is the crossover episode with Without A Trace which is my other favorite show.For those of you who are CSI fans be sure and pick up the new TV Guide with William Petersen and Anthony Lapaglia from Without A Trace on the cover, I ask a favor of you all, if you could say a prayer please for Cindy, her sister passed away a couple of days ago at the young age of 34, please say a prayer for Cindy, Cindy is one of the sweetest friends I have ever met online,  Cindy I am so very sorry about your sister, if you need to talk I'm here for you hon, Thank God tommorow is Friday, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Hump Day Thoughts

Hi friends, a huge "Thank you" to Emmi for one of the most beautiful tags I have ever had anyone make me.Thank you so much Emmi :) Your work is amazing and that was so thoughtful of you to think of me.I still get very emotional when I think of Jorja leaving CSI in November, I hope she comes back sometime on the show and does'nt vanish all -together from TV like some stars have that have left shows.Would any of you still like a World Market coupon ? I have a couple left here, one thing I have noticed in my store is that the customers love our music, I always get asked if we sell the music we play in our store, that is how I heard the song Crystal Ball by Keane but actually our music is Satellite Radio, so when those of you who I sent the coupon to go to my store let me know what you think of our music.When I was out on my balcony earlier I noticed a smoky haze off in the distance, I bet some of the smoke from the wildfires blew down this way, God bless all the people in Los Angeles who lost thier homes and had to flee, I pray for them all and also all the brave firefighters who are down there too fighting the relentless fires.Tommorow I will be posting a recipe for candy bar cookies in my journal, sure to be a winner with kids.I am working tommorow 11- 4.Tommorow night too CSI is a repeat from Season 7 , the episode Ending Happy, that one is ok, but I'm really looking forward to next week's CSI that is the crossover episode with Without A Trace, a two hour event that is sure to be amazing, have a good Thursday everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Here it is , my new favorite picture

 Well since Jorja is leaving looks like she and Grissom will end on good terms and in a moment we will never forget................. however I am still deeply sad Jorja is leaving the show "Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing"- Mother Teresa


 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Tuesday.Mine was ok, I met my new manager Greg today.He's ok, I did'nt really get to see much of him because he was in the office most of the day but he seemed alright.My day at work was quiet and uneventful.My stomach seemed a little upset today , I do'nt think it's the flu.In two week's I'll be going to get the flu shot.I try to get it every year .When I got home the new TV Guide was waiting , OMG that cover, wow !!!!!! And there are Grissom and Sara pictures inside as well and I went on some of Jorja's fansites when I came home and I saw a picture of Sara and Grissom from the last episode she will be on and I was like OMG !!!!!!! I would post it but for some reason I ca'nt but it's a great picture that made me smile.I hope you all have a great Wednesday, it is really hot here today, almost humid.I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Super Busy Saturday

 Hi friends, I worked today and it was absolutely nuts in my store, very busy and I had huge lines all day.I missed Anthony being there and I got 20 customers to sign - up for our coupons in thier email , I was sorry he was'nt there for me to share that news with, he would have been proud of me.After work I went to Barnes and Noble's to get a job application and to buy the new Entertainment Weekly magazine with Carrie Underwood on the cover.For those of you who are Jorja fans in the new Entertainment Weekly magazine there is a great Jorja Fox article inside this week with some stunning picture of her inside including the one I posted above.One of the things I love about Jorja is that she is a natural beauty and she is 'nt your basic big boobs and blond hair Hollywood type. .I love that Grissom is paired up with Sara, I could never see him with Catherine or Lady Heather for that matter but Sara is perfect for him.I am looking forward to the next CSI which will be on not next week but the week after with Anthony Lapaglia from Without A Trace.I love the show Without A Trace almost as much as CSI and I do'nt give it as many shout -outs as I should but that is an amazing show as well and I have enjoyed watching it for years .I hope you all have a great weekend, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Friday, October 19, 2007


 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Friday.I was off work today but I went into work for a little while to attend Anthony's farewell party.Robin had baked cupcakes and there was food in the break room from Panda Express.I was good with my eating and just had some chicken with mushrooms.I am proud to say I did'nt cry once today , I told him how much I had enjoyed working with him and what a great boss he had always been.He thanked me for the card I had given him Wednesday during my tearfest.I asked him about a picture but he just said he hated having his picture taken because when he was little his mom had forced him to model.At least I tried.Oh my God what did you all think of CSI last night ? I loved the proposal and Sara said "Yes" So sweet !!!!!!!!! One thing I am puzzled about is if they both do get married then why would it be neccesary after Sara leaves the show to bring on a so -called new love interest for Grissom ? What the hell ???????????? Tommorow I am working and sure as hell hope Cyndie wo'nt be hanging around like wet wash.I have had enough of her lately.Hope you all have a safe and happy weekend, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Please pray for me

Hi friends, This has been such a hard week for me, I have been in a low place for the past two days.Monday night was the night I read for sure Jorja Fox was leaving CSI and then minutes later Anthony told me on the phone he was leaving this week.I feel like such an ass for crying so much in front of him yesterday.It was like a dam that burst because once I started crying I could'nt stop.It was embarrasing but at least he knows I cared about him alot.There will be a small going away party for him tommorow at work, I want to go but hopefully I wo'nt lose it again and cry and yes I will bring my camera.Jackie to answer your question I asked him yesterday if he was going to another World Market and he said "Another store" but he did'nt say which one.Also he said soon he wants to move to Las Vegas.He has always loved Vegas as much as I do.I am experiencing fear of the unknown about our new manager but seriously I think I need a change so I am considering getting a job application from Barnes and Noble's tommorow and filling it out.I think a new job would be good for me, I have been considering a new job for a while now but Anthony leaving was the final push I needed.I need a change, 7 years is a long time at one job.I have mixed feelings about CSI tonight, on one hand I want Sara to say "Yes" to Grissom's proposal but if she does it will make her leaving in November all the more painful.Especially for the long time GSR fans who have wanted to see Grissom and Sara together as a couple a marriage prososal is a dream come true.I hope you all have a good Friday, Hugs to those of you who have had a rough week besides me, I know I'm not alone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Saying " Goodbye" sucks

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Wednesday.I went into work feeling sad today that it was Anthony's last day.I had gotten him a cute little "Goodbye" card and told him what a great boss he had always been and I had written my email address inside.It was a quiet day and 4:00 rolled around fast.I saw him over in the Wine department when I left and I gave him the card.He was busy so I waited .He told me how he had enjoyed working with me and what a great employee I was, I felt tears in my eyes that quickly spilled down my face.I hated myself for crying in front of him but losing such a great person as him hurt .Sorry you guys I was too chicken to ask him about the picture.He told me that he would email me and shook my hand and I left with a lump in my throat  still crying.Usually I can hold it together and rarely do I cry in front of others but today was hard.Also all the news about Jorja leaving CSI had made me sad too, thank you to everyone who emailed me all the articles.It is better in a way to know that it was her decision to leave and nobody forced her out , and I saw she wants to do other things.I want her to be happy and I will always support her no matter what she does.She is and always will be my favorite actress.I know that with her talent and amazing acting abilities she will find work on something else.Tommorow night is CSI night, now that Jorja is leaving for sure it does'nt seem like she will say "Yes" to Grissom 's proposal tommorow night which is sad but I guess we will see.Have a good Thursday everyone , oh and before I end this entry if any of you are interested in dropping a few pounds before Christmas one of my favorite J- Landers ( Emmi) is looking for members for her weight loss group Thinchicks, I am proud to be a member because I need a good kick in the ass and someone to motivate me about eating better and exercising.So if any of you are interested in joining email Emmi at Emmi is a wonderful friend and a great person, Have a good Thursday everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Tiring Day And "Good bye Anthony"

 Hi friends, I was enjoying my day off until I got called into work, I went in for a few hours today.It was busy since it was a rainy day and I was tired by the time I got off work.All of you who requested the Friends and Family coupons, they are on the way to you all.Tommorow I am going to have to say "Goodbye " to Anthony, that is going to suck so much.I really like him , he was the best manager we have ever had and he restored my faith that there are good guys out there and not every man is uncaring and selfish like my father is.I will be sorry to see him go and I pray that our new manager is a good one .I am a little nervous about another new manager.This would be the 6 'th new manager we have had in 6 years.I hope you all have a good Wednesday.I'm working tommorow , maybe I can Anthony to pose for a picture with me, we'll see.I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Damn it Aol !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I see Aohell decided to eat my earlier entry I wrote, thank you Aohell.I am sad tonight but I will get through this.I know that Jorja leaving CSI is'nt the end of the world , sure I am sad but I know that she is such an amazing actress that she will find work, I have no doubt she will get lots of offers.I will miss her on CSI though.She is my favorite actress and she always will be.I will always be a fan of hers and support her no matter what she does.I am crushed about Anthony leaving our store on Wednesday.He has always been there for me offering encouragment or a kind word when I have needed it the most.He is a great person and a wonderful manager and I will miss him greatly.I often wished that my dad could have treated me as kindly as Anthony did, Anthony made me believe again that there are good guys out there and not every man hurts you and treats you like garbage like my father did to me.I hope our new manager is a good one, I have to admit I am nervous about the thought of having another new manager, makes the dinner in my stomach turn in a not so good way.Thanks for all of your kind words from my earlier entry, I got to read them all before Aohell ate my entry, before I end this I am going to pimp Emmi's weight loss group Thinchicks, I am a member of her weight loss group  and she is a great motivator and a wonderful and kind friend with a huge heart for those of you who do'nt know her.Emmi is looking for members to join her weight loss group Thinchicks, if any of you are interested me know so I can tell her or email her  at I know I need a motivator and someone to give my ass a kick to motivate me.Kathi Jane is my weight loss partner and you will be paired up with a partner too if you wish.If you are looking to lose weight before the holiday season this group will be able to help you  get motivated, plus I love some of the delicious recipes and  helpful exercise tips as well.Ok going to bed now, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Sad Day

 Hi friends, a tear is trickling down my cheek as I write tonight's entry.I read an article from just now and Jorja announced it herself that she will be leaving the show after November 8'th.Yeah it makes me sad because I felt such a strong connection to her character Sara and she is and always will be my favorite actress.I will support her no matter what she does.Another sad thing I just found out just now, my gorgeous Anthony is leaving our store Wednesday, that will be his last day.Oh man that just crushes me. Now I have to get used to another new General Manager, ugh.He has always been such a great manager, kind and caring and always offering me an encouraging word when I needed one or a smile to brighten my day , not to mention he was easy on the eyes too.If any of you could send some hugs my way I sure would appreciate it, think I will need alot of hugs this week,  my heart is heavy right now, think I will soak in the tub for a while, at least if I cry in there it will be a good excuse, actually two good excuses,   I Love You All Lisa XOXO

 Hi friends, I am about to give a shout -out to some more of my new favorite products so here goes .....................

1) Ok my new favorite product right now is Angie's lemon meringue whipped body butter- I love this stuff !!!!!!!!!!! It smells soooooooo fresh and clean and delicious just like lemon meringue pie and it gives me a lift every time I put it on.Angie's products put the ones at Bath and Body Works and The Body Shop to shame, check out her skincare website to view all of her products -I highly reccomend the lemon meringue lotion.

2) I needed some laundry detergent the other day so I bought the Tide with Downy in the April Fresh scent.OMG this detergent smells amazing and all my clothes smell so good and fresh.I washed my bedspread in it too and it smells great !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3) Ok I know I've mentioned this CD before but I ca'nt get enough of the Air CD titled Pocket Symphony .If you are ever going on a long road trip this CD is one of the most relaxing and best chill ones I have ever heard.Seriously even if you hear it once it's hard to forget it.

4) For cat lovers , the 2008 page a day Calender called Stuff On My Cat- OMG I love this calender so much.It shows pictures of cats with hats on and scarves and pretty much anything, pinecones, empty Mac boxes, bubbles, you name it, I have the 2007 one now and just bought the 2008 one at Barnes and Nobles, it makes me smile every day.

5) These cookies are sold at my store, they are the Cadbury Orange Wedge cookies and they are to die for.Pretty much anything Cadbury is a winner though, the combination of chocolate and orange together is magic.

6) Also from my store the John Mc Cain Steel cut oatmeal- Mmmmm so delicious on a cold morning with a little cream and brown sugar.

7) One more favorite from my store, the Sticky Fingers muffin mixes -OMG these are so good.I love the blueberry one but they are all great .Ok that is my product shout -out for the day, make it a great upcoming week everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXOXO

Finally some good CSI news

 Hi friends, hope you all are having a good Thursday.I was relieved beyond belief that I was off work today after that disaster yesterday.I am starting to hate my job and I do think it is time for a change.It breaks my spirit when I say "Hi" to the customers and they just look at me and keep walking, I love when they walk in and ignore my greeting but then if they have a stupid question to ask me they turn around and come back to my register and they suddenly know who I am then.I know I have said it before and I'll say it again, people are rude around here and mean too.This is not what I want in my life, I think when June rolls around I wo'nt bother renewing my lease.When I was online today I read that on next week's CSI Grissom was going to propose to Sara and I cried tears of joy.I think they are such a cute couple and they are both so well suited for each other.I do'nt want Jorja Fox to leave the show, I hope that maybe the producers can work a deal out with her so she can stay, or even if she left for a month and came back I would be ok with that.I just do'nt want her to leave the show and not come back, that is a very depressing thought.It is supposed to rain again tommorow and the clouds are rolling in like clockwork.My mom flies home tonight , I will probably see her tommorow after work.Cyndie had better not be at work again tommorow or I will scream, I am so sick of her !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a good Friday everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Make one mistake and your name is Mud

 Hi friends, I guess alerts are down right now as well.What else is new though right? Today started off ok but ended badly.It started good , I woke up and read journals before heading off to work.Bret and Anthony were both there.I was happy to see them but then Anthony mentioned something about Cyndie coming by around 1:00 p.m. - Again ???????? Her visits are really getting old , by the way for those of you who do'nt know who Cyndie is she is our sourpuss district manager.Sure enough around 2:00 p.m. there she was with her usual scowl on her face all dressed in black.I fought the urge to hand her a broom in her store as she walked in.I said " Hi" to her when she walked in and she walked right past me and said nothing, nice.I paid attention to my customers and rang them up trying to greet each one as they came in but things started to pick up and I got really busy being the only cashier in front.I focused on helping people at the register and I guess some blond guy from Corporate came in and I was busy and I did'nt greet him so before I left Cyndie walked up to my register and said in a cold tone "There was a guy from Corporate here earlier and he said you did'nt greet him " Then she turned to Bret our new asst manager who replaced Cheryl and beamed at him and said "You were great with him though" Sigh................... guess I need to pull out my Lisa is a loser pin, then Cyndie made a big show of hugging Robin in front of my register while making eye contact with me.I gave her a fake smile and fought tears.Why is it I am always picked on or made to be the bad guy? I started to feel sick at work and I was trying the best I could to be friendly.I think I need to get the hell out of retail.Cyndie has hated me from the first day I started working at World Market, guess she told Anthony about my mistake because I saw them both talking outside when I was at the register.Knowing him he probably stood up for me because he is kind and caring but I am so done.I'm already dreading Christmas Season in my store and it has'nt even started yet.I'm telling you guys , Christmas brings out the ugliness in so many people, it is really sad.I can honestly say this will be my last Christmas working retail, I am shocked I have made it this long really.Another reason to get out of retail is to get away from Cyndie.I am sick of her crap.She needs to find someone else to pick on, I remember my first Christmas at the store how mean she was to me when she came by to visit, once a bitch , always a bitch I guess, sooooooo glad I am off tommorow, it's CSI night too, woo-hoo, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Feeling like an idiot once again

 Hi friends, I am happy to report my tummy is better today but I went to work on the wrong day again so I'm sitting here feeling like a fool once again.I really like our new assistant manager Bret but I ca'nt imagine what he thinks of me at this point.He looked on the schedule for today when I walked in and said "Did I make a mistake?" I said "What do you mean?" and he said "I think you are working tommorow" Me, "OMG I did it again" Calgon take me away !!!!!!!!! I honestly do'nt know where my head is at lately. Hope you all are having a good Tuesday, Love You All Lisa XOXO

Not Feeling Well

 Hi friends, that girl is the picture is me today.I have'nt  really felt well all day.Angie maybe you and I have the same virus.I felt like I wanted to throw up all day and felt really tired and out of it.Hope it passes by tommorow so I can go to work.I think it is too early in the season for the flu to be going around.Not really too much to report today, It was a Monday and Monday is my least favorite day of the week, wish I could just slash Mondays out of the week, lol.Too bad I felt so lousy today because it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day.I have to admit every year when it is daylight savings time the day getting shorter and it getting dark earlier makes me a little depressed.There is a name for it, ca'nt think of it at the moment.Does this happen to any of you too ? Just wondering.Hope you all have a good Tuesday, Angie hope you are feeling better and Donna , hope Robert is feeling better by now too, I Love You All Lisa XO

I'm back

Hi friends, I'm back !!!!!!!!!! Anyone miss me ? I was feeling a little bummed this weekend and a little sick as well but I'm trying to keep my head up.I've been thinking alot lately and I think after this Christmas I do'nt want to work in retail anymore.I dread Christmas time in my store every year and it can be very stressful on a cashier.I do'nt think I am strong enough sometimes to deal with the mean customers at Christmas time too, I get my feelings hurt easily so I think I am in the wrong line of work.I want to go back to college and see what my options are.I hope you all are having a good weekend.It's a beautiful day here and I went for a walk earlier.I am still hoping that a miracle will happen and Jorja will stay on CSI.I'm hoping all the fan support for her pays off and the producers realize what an asset she is to the show.My mom is living it up now in the Panama Canal, She will be flying home Thursday night.I hope she has a safe trip home.Flying makes me nervous as hell nowadays.Have a good upcoming week everyone.I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Thursday Wind Down

There they are, the cutest TV couple ever.I figure everyone got my letters today.I am hoping this campaign Jorja's fans are having for her works and she stays on CSI.If the Jericho peanut campaign worked to save Jericho, hopefully this one will as well.I ca'nt imagine CSI without Sara, It's unthinkable to me.I am looking forward to tonight's show, looks like a cute moment between Grissom and Sara when they are sitting in a car talking tonight.I was off work today but I went to meet Debbi for lunch today since our lunch got screwed up yesterday.It was nice seeing her today and I was glad that we could try again today.I am so glad Debbi moved back here , I needs my friends and she is an awesome friend to me.I admit I am a damaged person in some ways but I am a great friend.If I love you , there is nothing I would'nt do for you.I am loyal forever.Think it may be an Aries trait.When me and Debbi were hanging out at lunch I have noticed in the past two days one of the Mall Security guys has been staring at me .Hopefully that wo'nt become a problem.I have had issues in the past with strangers who would'nt leave me alone and it can be quite a nuisance to say the least.I am so glad tommorow is Friday, I am working a long day 9 -5 , hope it goes better then yesterday did.I Love You All Lisa XOXO P.S. Donna I hope you read this before 9:00 p.m. tonight, I want you to see the CSI tonight !!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh on today

Hi friends, what a day I had.It started off ok, I went to work and Bret our new asst manager opened today.I just met him for the first time yesterday and he is so refreshing compared to Cheryl.He is sweet and friendly and kind of cute too.Things started picking up around lunch, my best friend came by the store and wanted to have lunch with me but then Cyndie showed up unexpectedly so Bret and Robin were both busy dealing with her so that screwed our lunch up because my back up cashier had to stay in front for a little while .Thanks Cyndie for screwing that up for me.Cyndie had told Virginia she would'nt be staying too long but she ended up staying until 3:30.She was being all fake nice to the customers which made me want to throw up.She is so phony, when she is a really bad mood if you say "Hi" to her she just flat out ignores you so I never know what to expect with her.The rest of the time at work went pretty fast, lots of people buying Halloween cards and candy.Towards the end of my shift I made the mistake of answering the phone and this pissed off lady who had been on hold for 15 minutes was yelling at me to go over to beverage and demanding I look for something for her.First of all I had a line of 5 people so it's not like I could just walk away and leave them.Second I have no problem doing something for someone that asks me in a nice way but if you start demanding me around and being rude, well it makes me angry and my defiant side comes out.She was'nt even clear to me about what she was looking for, beverage is not my specialty, Joe is our beverage guy, figures too that he was off today.I could'nt wait to leave work today, tommorow I am off, thank God !!!!!!!!! I am so excited for CSI tommorow night, I really want to see that moment where Grissom and Sara were sitting in a car together and she smiled at him, I wonder what he said to make her smile at him, I love Grissom and Sara, they are the cutest TV couple ever and I am not liking these new rumors about a new character coming on the show and being a love interest for Grissom.Damn it anyway !!!!!!!!!!!! He loves Sara and she is his soulmate !!!!!!!! No new characters !!!!!!!!!! I want Sara to stay on CSI !!!!!!!!!! I hope Ecklie is'nt too hard on Grissom and Sara tommorow night about thier relationship either.I ca'nt stand Ecklie, he reminds me of my good for nothing father. Anyhow hope you all have a good Thursday tommorow, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Losing My Mind Today

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Tuesday.I'm not sure where my mind is today , but it's on vacation.I went into work and then when I inspected the schedule for today my name was'nt on it.WTH ? I checked the weekly schedule and I was scheduled for tommorow and not today.Sigh ..........boy did I feel like an idiot.Anthony being the sweet and kind person that he is let me work 3 hours today so I was grateful to him. My friend Anna came by the store and was feeling a little down so after work we both had a grease fest ( onion rings, fries and lots of ketchup.We sat and talked for an hour and I made her laugh a few times, when I left her she was smiling so that made me feel good.My second oops of the day, I had a letter in my purse for Margo with a little belated birthday present tucked inside and I had forgotten to stamp the envelope this morning.I came home and pressed two stamps on the envelope which looks a little on the tired side but is on the way to you now Margo.Have a good Wednesday everyone, I'm off to cook dinner , have a good evening friends, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Monday, Monday

Hi friends, I just read that tommorow and Thursday a banner will be flying over the offices of CSI at Universal City in Los Angeles complete with hearts that says "Keep Jorja Fox on CSI" Awww that is so cool , wish I could go there and check it out.Thank you again to everyone who wrote letters and signed Jorja's petition.I have the greatest friends, you guys are so awesome, I love you all so much !!!!!!!!! I hung out with my brother today and got some snail -mail out for you Margo.I figure by Thursday Carol Mendelsohn and Billy Petersen will get my letters. All the other CSI producers are going to get bombarded with letters from angry Jorja fans.I am really hoping all our efforts pay off and Jorja is so touched by how much her fans love her that she stays.I read online that Penny who had the online journal Pieces Of Ohio passed away today.I did'nt know Penny but from all I have read about her , she seemed like a really great lady.Prayers and hugs going up to her family and to all her friends who knew her. I feel sorry that I did'nt get a chance to know Penny. I am working tommorow, my store is all decked out in Halloween stuff.I love Halloween, too bad I do'nt get many Trick or Treaters around here,there is nothing on TV here tonight.Monday night TV blows .................... have a good Tuesday everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO
