Hello hello, you lovely lot, oh my goodness, life happens!

Happy belated New Year, everyone, I hope you all got through with all fingers and other body parts intact!

I've gotten some really lovely messages the past few days(♥), and yes, I'm alive, just cramming for exams, passing exams, working like crazy and trying my very best to have some semblance of life besides all that. Work this weekend was hectic, chaotic and intense - January sales have truly started. Why never in the stores I want to pillage? But I digress, I meant to thank everyone for lovely messages and comments and I will get to them, I'm sorry for the snail's pace I'm working at at the moment! I know I owe a ton of messages, I'm sorry!

I've gotten my filthy paws on a new netbook as well, so I probably won't get any writing done until that one has been set up completely. I seriously can't wait to use a computer that doesn't need to be charged all the time!

I also got my Arafes DVD, which I will watch and flail over the minute Gati gets hers!

As I mentioned three sentences in, January sales have started, and customers this weekend were a bit crazy with it, which ensured that I had my share of crazies. I especially enjoyed a conversation with a woman, who wanted to buy a 16GB USB stick:

Customer: That's... it? It's rather small, isn't it?
Rikke: Yes, it is, but I assure you, all 16GB are there.
Customer: Are you sure?
Rikke: Quite.
Customer: But how?
Rikke: ...because that's a 16GB stick? It says so on the box, I'm sorry, I can't unpack it for you unless you're sure to buy it.
Customer: Why not?
Rikke: If I break the seal, I can't sell it.
Customer: So you're sure all 16GB are there?
Rikke: You're free to count them when you get home.
Customer: Really?
Rikke: (/mentally facepalming at this point) If you buy it and you're dissatisfied with the product, you can come back and claim it defective.
Customer: Oh, nice. But how do I open it?
Rikke: (/trying to strangle snickering co-worker and trying not to sound exasperated) Right at the middle. Where it says "pull".
Customer: Oh I see. It's rather small, isn't it?
Rikke: ....
Customer: Okay, yes, thank you!
Rikke: You can just bring it to the check out line.
Coworkers: /exploding

And the guy with the Nokia.

Customer: Do you guys have the Nokia Pio Mio?
Rikke: /blinks ...I'm sorry, come again?
Customer: The Nokia Pio Mio?
Rikke: I haven't heard about it, we don't have it here. I'm sorry, I'll check it online for you?
Customer: /waits
Coworker: What's up?
Rikke: Have you heard of a Nokia Pio Mio?
Coworker: /blinks
Coworker: A what? /starts giggling
Rikke: Pio Mio. /tries not to giggle
Customer: It's really new! I though the Pio Mio name was really cute!
Coworker and Rikke exchange glances
Rikke: /tries really hard not to laugh
Rikke: /gets idea
Rikke to coworker: Maybe he means the PureView one? The 808?
Coworker: Possibly. /snickering into sleeve
Rikke: Do you mean this one, sir? /turns screen
Customer: Yes, that's exactly it!
Rikke: Well, we don't have the Pio Mio in our store or at the website either, I'm sorry.
Coworker: /has to leave because of imminent death by attempt to smother laughter
Customer: Oh okay, but thank you for the help! /leaves

We all just started laughing really hard when he left, I really didn't want to correct him, he was such a nice older man set in his ways xD

I hope you all are having a good January <3<3<3

RL conversation I had a few years ago with a classmate (btw, the cellphone package deal of a mobile phone company here, used to be all named MOBI *sth/usually a bird type*, like, if you bought a certain cellphone, you had a mobi owl, and so go on. Anyway, the deal of buying only a sim card, without any mobile, was called mobi chickadee).

Me: Oh, you got the new Nokia...
V: Yeah, I bought it in Italy.
Me: You got the mobi chickadee then?
V: Yes.
I (turning from in front of us): What? This *points at the phone* is the mobi chickadee?
Me: No, the chickadee is only the sim card.
I: Oh, I see... and how much did you pay?
V: 20 euros (or sth).
I: Only? I'm buying it, too!
Me: But it's a sim card.
I: So?
Me: You don't need another one, you already can't remember one pin code.
I: I don't care, it's cheap. I'm gonna buy it!

The mother of the stupid is always pregnant.

CUSTOMERS. /giggles

You are so nice to them :'D /pets you good worker, you.

ARAFES DVD. I WILL BITE MY MAILMAN'S LEG OFF IF I MUST. BUT IT WILL ARRIVE. (If it doesn't arrive tomorrow, you can watch yours while I hunt down every single employee of that mothereffin' postal service company.)

You know, when you say filthy paws, I can just picture you with Nala paws, playing with an earth globe and pointing at the places you'll conquer next. Also, KENTAAAAAAAAAAA 8D the shiny. Btw you have to tell me if it's only a working name or the official one, I think I might be going overboard with this. (If I craft a UtaOni inspired pouch for it, will you sock me forever, is the real question here.)

Oh hey HAPPY NEW YEAR I am such a troll I'll stop commenting RIGHT AWAY why am I still here NO it is so annoying to not use punctuation, I can't even re-read the beginning of that sentence. I might be slightly high on account of Candy YOU gave to me (so you're to blame, ipso facto) and having just finished cramming for the day.

Also I love you very very much. ♥

I KNOW. Them crazies, I swear I attract them >.>

Well, I'm at work tomorrow, so no DVD watching whether you get it or not xD

You know me entirely too well, except for how it's a map and I decide on countries to conquer by closing my eyes and throwing darts at it. KENTA YAY. It's the official one, yay! I feel tons better now that it actually has a name xD And sdnsjfskhfkls of course not, oh mt god, you'd do that? ;;__;; /wibbles

Shall I ignore the last chunk of ranting right there? I think so, or I'll stop using capitalized letters in retaliation.

XD Well, at least they don't stalk you yet


I'm sorry to point out that you closing your eyes AND throwing darts is a very, very scary thought, and I hope there is no one else in that globe room with you.
KENTAAAA It must be so stylish and grumpy in the morning ♥ I WOULD I ALREADY STARTED DESIGNING IT 8D You know how happy making things make me, and making things for you? Pure joy right there. ALSO. FLUFFY-NESS.

Please do XD I'll be calm, I promise. (Typed clam; that works, too)

I broke down and begged for an early Mother's Day present (The earliest occasion where I can think of getting a gift heheh ) and ordered one. Sadly it isn't first press and sadly it's the Korean press, (It's cheaper *sigh*) well it will have Korean subs but what the hey ... it's better than not having it at all! ^_^
