My complete fail......

I'm temping as a secretary for a fabric store,for just a couple hours, but still. So, here is one conversation on the phone gone completely bumpy:

Me: "________ upholstery, Abby speaking."
Them: "Can I speak to _______?"
me: "he isn't here right now, but can i take a message?"
Them: "yeah, can you tell him that _____ from _______ wants to talk to him."
Me: "sure." (awkward 10 seconds of silence).
Them: "don't you want my number....?"
Me: "yeah, that'd be good..."
Them: (mockingly muffled 'ugh') ____-______
me: "okay."
Them: "and what was your name?" (what's he going to do, have me fired from my volunteer job?)
Me: "Abby."
Them: "alright, just have ____ call me."
me: "alright, bye."
Them: "..." (hung up)
Alright, so not that bumpy, but still pretty much a fail. :)

I'm on vacation from vacation....

Well, school is out for summer vacation, and I'm off on vacation from vacation, sitting on the beaches of wonderful Florida. Typically I'm not a Gulf of Mexico girl, usually I'm West Coast all the way, but hey, a beach is a beach. I'm staying with my Uncle Jeff (nickname Jeffey) for a week, and then with my Aunt Julie.

My iPod is dead, and I'm dying of music withdrawal. It's almost as bad as the time my brother and I drove 7 hours straight while my Dad was sleeping in the backseat, and my brother played continual country music, and I became pretty much physically ill from such bad music (or it was the McDonalds and Mountainous terrain). I probably deserved the endless country music because when I was eight, and we were driving to Georgia, I threw-up on his XBOX (maybe my aim was on purpose, maybe not).

What was I talking about? Well, anyways, now I'm relying on my Walkman from 2003. Luckily I brought some good CDs: The Cure, Bright Eyes, Be Your Own Pet, Giant Drag, and the Beastie Boys. Hopefully I will survive... Maybe I will have to make a stop to Target, or wherever they sell CDs down here. Usually I boycott big store chains (except you, Urban Outfitters) just because I like to support all the small stores, and I hate corporate America, but, seeing as they don't have many stores except giant chains where everything is made in China or Indonesia, I'll endure. :)

It's summer!

Yea!!!!!!!! School is finally out! ...And I am already bored. I need to get a job, but no one is hiring. So I've been in the library this entire week trying not to lose all my brain cells. Sleeping in has been cool, but then I wake up and only have half of the day to do things.

In other news, I'm going to Florida for like a month!!! So, yea. My life is pretty uneventful right now, so I'll just stop this sorry post before you die of boredom. Hope you are having a better summer than me.

Ps. If you are in need of a music fix, try out these bands:
The Who
Iron & Wine
The Moldy Peaches

My big splurge of the season.....

I have been saving up money for a trip to Half Price Books, which is one of my favorite places on earth!!!!! I bought 4 books, and 14 vinyl albums. This totaled up to be 90 bucks!!!! I've never spent that much money at one time (that's a lie). It was so extraordinary, my hands shook as I digged through my pockets looking for my wad of cash. So I fork the money over in one large ball of cash. That was yesterday, and already I have read one of the books, and listened to 5 of the records. So yeah, I'm spending money in a recession!

Ps- if you're looking for a good book, get Go Ask Alice by: anonymous. I finished it today, and now it's my favorite book.
