On I Drank the Kool-Aid, and It Was Juice

i work at a juice bar! and i get a free giant juice everyday! i used to do smoothies but now i cannot live without my (one apple)(one cucumber)(two lemons)(spinach)(kale)(chard)(parsley)(celery) juice! sometimes i also add garlic which is not for the faint of heart. sometimes i also add kava which is not so tasty but is basically herbal xanex.
im a poor, but i get so upset on my day off at not having a juice that i go into my job and actually pay for one. BEST hangover cure ever! and as for nutritional concerns, i just make sure to not really use fruit or carrots because those will crazy spike my blood sugar.
IM JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT JUICE. my friends all laugh at me when i say i'm juicing. but they just don't understand.

On Asking for a Raise: A Series of Conversations

this is so timely! i just asked for a raise (i was SO NERVOUS OH GOD) and my boss has been putting me off all week. granted, i'm hauling butt at a low wage job so i can have a loose schedule to pursue music, but it is damn hard to live off 8 bucks an hour. i asked for 9 dollars an hour, which is what register people make, and i often work/fill in on register, along with being able to do at least four other jobs in the store. long story short, a sudden hire of a new register girl! maybe i'm paranoid, but....

and i work at a health food store promoting fair trade and local practices. god forbid i should receive a fair wage for the work i do though.

complaining to the commentariatttttttt

On Conned By a Mom

people are always trying to sell you these stories at penn station. i fell for it once and thought i had found a loophole- i told the guy (trying to see his girlfriend and son in nj or something) and i told him i'd give him some money since we were right at the ticket machines and i'd be able to watch him. i proceeded to buy my ticket while he stood at his machine hitting buttons and muttering like the thing was broken. i didn't feel like asking for the money back though- it was almost worth it just to watch him pretending to struggle with the machine. and hey, even if hes going to 'buy drugs' or what have you, addiction is hard and me not giving him five dollars isn't gonna stop him, its just gonna make him do something worse for it.

i also gave money to an older hippy man with a van at a mass pike rest stop. he said he was on his way to see rat dog. i don't think anyone can have any doubts that he was telling the truth. i know some kids who 'spare change' and busk to help them get around the country, and if it was me i'd want people to help me out too. its like paying taxes but to the universe.
