I'm not dead.

I am glad it is nearly the weekend.

I have been kicking ass and taking names when it comes to sewing for Pennsic. I may actually look like a proper viking for the majority of the time. (Or as proper as Pennsic vikings are... which isn't very, it's just too damn hot to wear layers of clothes. Besides I'm completely improper anyway, odds are I would have been back then too. I just would have been punished for it.)

Speaking of sewing, apparently I may poke my nose into the upholstering arena and see what I can do about redoing a seat cover for a street bike (crotch rocket). Perhaps my calling is really in auto and motorcycle upholstery.

Work is going okay. I tried to tackle the afternoon alone on commercial. Dan played a practical joke on me because I'm still new and don't know anything. I had to hound Ken for help all the time but I did manage to get things done (though I didn't get to leave early because 2:30-4:30 p.m. was crazy). I didn't have a ton of calls but I had a few with some complicated requests that kept me busy. But I think, in the end, everything was okay. And I didn't burn the store down. Dan is really nice and I feel like I could call him for help with anything (he's in commercial at a neighboring store). I thanked Ken profusely before I left tonight and apologized for being a pain. He swore at me and asked me what I expected after a week there, perfection? I am on commercial tomorrow by myself all day. I am worried. Mostly because Ken won't be there. I'll be stuck with Ray (the store manager), old man Dan (my driver) and HeeHaw (yet another Dan but redneck does not even come close to describing this boy). I could always call Dan from the other store though, and I expect he'll call me a few times throughout the day to see how I am doing and offer his help.

Apparently Verizon changed their new every two deal and now one can only get $50 towards a new phone but you can get that after 20 months instead of 24? They just didn't bother to tell people about this, I guess. Lame. But it does mean that I could go get a new phone now instead of waiting until October, which is cool. It just sucks that I only have a $50 credit to do so. I'm not sure how their online deals differ from their in-store deals but phones that are in my price range (besides another Chocolate, which I am not sure I want) are the Juke, the Moto and the VX9400. I'd like the EnV2 but I don't necessarily have $50 to put towards a phone. What to do, what to do.
