Thrift Whore

Right now I'm literally drowning in neon post-it notes, I've been bursting to blog I almost returned to the blog scene last week after having lots of techno issues. Only soon as I logged on I had to log off AGAIN.
Why? Well my email account got hacked into:yeah because having my blog account hacked into and a computer virus wasn't enough in the space of Oh three weeks.
So far October has been one dead blog post month, due to all the annoying above. And wow have I been feeling the blog void, being unable to post daily is a similar shit feeling to not brushing your teeth twice a day everyday.
Returning to the post- it notes. I have a whole months worth of various fashion notes/ topics and rants in draft form ready, that should have been posted up. Perhaps its a good thing though? God knows the fashion blog scene really doesn't need my random musing inputs, and especially rants!

Anywhos apart from screaming at my PC and calling hackers every name under the sun I've been working (yep I got that waitress job, and what a joy serving starters, wiping down ketchup stained tables and dealing with rude customers is. One customer treating me like a piece of shit, I put him straight,'why don't you shut your trap and think before you speak, and if your not capable of the latter then go chock on your food'.
I got in a 'ickle bot of trouble with the manager. But I can't tolerate people assuming I'm 'thick' because I'm "just a waitress" when unknown to them I have brains and ambition. I can't help but think sometimes it might be easier not to have any ambitions at all).
I achieved to get some tips the other day, so I decided to be bold live on the edge and instead of attempting to pay off my student debt (which really isn't do-able on the minimum wage)I morphed into a thrift whore.

I stuck my headphones on and in, turned up Paloma Faith (who I adore I saw her ages ago and so glad at long last shes beginning to get some acknowledgment. Though why its took this long baffles me?)and hit the charity shops/ thrift stores. Rummaging around, playing dress up in the changing room escapism at its best.
Exiting the Salvation army with a big smile stretching from ear to ear across my face, feeling content and very delighted with my cheap and cheerful thrift purchases.

I love the Salvation Army! And that dress is so great. I love the cut and colors. And on another note, I entered into a contest (Project Green Search) to be their next Green It Girl. You should totally vote for me, there's a link in my last post :)

OOo soo horrid! But guess what I adore your rants! It's what makes this blog so you, it's got passion and you want and need to make a point and believe me you do, so don't change that. I can totally relate to you job-wise, it's awful hard to serve people and sometimes they are so annoying and mean. =/
Hope all goes well for you dear!
