If I were a man...

...I'd wear cologne ALL the time. Because it smells ridiculously amazing. And I don't care if you're not Marlon Brando's level of attractiveness, or if you're slightly creepy...if you smell that ridiculously amazing, I will automatically become less creeped out by you, and you will become about 5% more attractive. Win/win situation, eh? ;)

So I started my job at Harry & David. They're big on pears. I never have been. But I tried one today, and oooh my goodness my gracious, it was delightful! And it's cool, because at Harry & David, the customer is the first person to ever touch the pears that he or she is buying. As in, all throughout the picking and shipping and such of the pears, they never have any direct human contact. Which is kinda nifty. And they're delicious. Anyways, I've had an interesting time so far. There's this guy there who's probably 15 or 20 years older than me and he's been...friendly. In our first conversation, he first made a point out of pointing out how gay he was not *cough cough*(unfortunately for him, 20 years my senior is a bit much for me), then he offered me a cigarette (which I definitely turned down), and then he gave me moose munch. Thus, ladies and gentlemen, the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
This'll be a fun job :)
Plus, I got a free chocolate bar today. And it's incredible. Boo yah!

Today was the third time I've gone somewhere early in the morning and left the lights on my car on, and thus become stranded after the battery ran out. Three times. I hate not having automatic lights. Because I never remember to turn the lights off when it's light outside! And then my dad scolds me. And I don't like when he gets mad at me...It's so rare that when it happens, it's just plain frightening. He has to go get my car after he gets home in a few hours...*gulp*

My baby cousin's coming!!! Well, soon. Tomorrow or Friday. Oh gosh, I simply cannot wait!! Another baby!! *squeal*! Yay :D :D :D

I just love this picture. *sigh*

Well, I have a four hour window of freedom today. I'm going to go deliberately take a nap. I haven't done that in forever! And then I go back to work :) I kinda like this whole three jobs thing...;D


  1. it should be illegal for Marlon Brando to look that hot. seriously.
    And your job sounds quite...interesting:) lol! hope you enjoy it=)

  2. Ditto what Mary said. Seriously, i just want to smooch him. any who...great post! wow...that guy is not weird at all.

  5. I love it when guys wear cologne.

    I totally agree with guys-smelling-good. ;)

  7. Ok, I am going to risk it and say that I don't find Marlon Brando super attractive? **ducks head from tomatoes** sorry! I do like cologne though!

  8. Well, I think Marlo Brandon is cute in an old-movie know what I'm sayin'? I think there's two kinds of cute: like I already said, the old-movie kind and the new-kind-of-cute-and-handsome thoughts anyway. Love the pics, as always. :)

    Congrats on your jobs, btw...hope you enjoy them (it sounds like you already are), and that they're a good experience for you).
