Happy Birthday, Andy [livejournal.com profile] olstad!

Also, dang! I reset my browse preference to the old-skool Dystopia style, and the Update Journal page is still ridiculous. I may have to start using an LJ client just to find something that accommodates my poor Spiffy's screen size, which is too narrow for this bigass text box. Sigh.

So today I got to work a little before 7, like I usually do, and there was no one in the kitchen, although it looked like the usual opening was more or less in progress. I got to the registers to check in, and the first server I saw said, "Oh good! We have a cook!" Uh-oh.

Turns out the usual opener (Lisa) got to work but wasn't feeling very well and eventually got sent home. The manager on duty was on the phone trying to get ahold of another cook, but no luck. He ended up being my toast monkey while I held the line for close to two hours, running on nothing but pure adrenaline and the constant, dreadful feeling that I must've forgotten something It was the bacon, but even that turned out okay eventually. )

I had my first break at 11 and then it finally occurred to me to ask: did this mean I'd be working tomorrow? When I left a little after 2:30, it was still unclear whether Lisa would be sufficiently recovered to work (i.e. whether I'd have to cover for her). I rode my bike home the long way to relax, bitched to Peter for awhile before taking a nice long relaxing shower, but half an hour ago the phone rang and guess what? I'm opening tomorrow. Whee, ha.

I think it's time I asked for a raise. I mean, I held my own today under circumstances that would have made our other opener seriously freak out, and they're trusting me to open tomorrow, not him (although, granted, he's the 7 AM, so even if I'm super-slow he can probably have me caught up in no time). The manager who helped me on line today is the same guy who a few weeks ago gave me a bit of a talking-to, saying I needed to pick up the pace, but he's asking me to open tomorrow, so yeah. If they're gonna let me play like one of the big kids, then I'd like to get paid more like one of the big kids.

Oy vey. I stayed up kinda late last night playing with LJ style crap, thinking I only had to work today and could rest up over the weekend. I'd better go to bed early tonight, but before then I'm going to be really nice to myself. I see a lot of lounging around in bed in my future, even if the cat is being really loud and resentful at being locked inside so he can't make more trouble with the neighbor kitties.

I've reverted back to my comfy old rut for the moment, but the S2 system does seem to have some shiny bits that I need to explore further. Unfortunately now is not the night to stay up way past my bedtime learning about them, as I work at 7 tomorrow. On the other hand, I'm not working this weekend, which leaves me with all kinds of free time to learn about it then. For my convenience, here's a link to the LJ Customize page, where I keep going to explore this stuff.

Boring notes to self regarding LJ style crap )

Oh, and before I forget: many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jmpava for helping me with default page stuff, accessible via the former link and the "browse options" links on many a default page. Also big thanks to Peter for helping me find the Customize Journal page. Whee?

It is so definitely bedtime now.

I hate the new LiveJournal default pages, like the ones that appear when you're viewing comments and whatnot (and, it turns out, what appear for updating your journal on the web form instead of on a client?) The dynamically-appearing links that I can twitch and screw up on because I'm using a trackpad and I'm spastic? Oh yeah, those can definitely suck it. Guess that makes it time for me to learn all that S2 jibber-jobber already... sigh. At least then I'll have no one to blame but myself when something goes wrong on my journal, but still.... blech. I am a big lazy lamer! Why must I leave my rut? It was comfy there, dangit!

How about now? Now?

It turns out the Refried Paper style won't let me play fast and loose with the affiliated stylesheets (I mean, I'm sure it would if I actually paid for my LiveJournal account...) so I've switched to Generator for the time being. Now if only I could find a color scheme I like....

Update, 12:07: Yes! I found the typo in the stylesheet that was making the title/caption fonts the wrong color and boldness. I'm pretty happy with my current setup. Sexy background colors will have to wait till I pay LJ, I guess.

Okay, so I'm jumping on the bandwagon. All the cool kids have livejournals, right? (If that doesn't get me like a dozen "of course" messages, nothing will.) Anyway, I'm still setting things up and playing with all the bells and whistles and whatnot. Bear with me.

Update, 12:43 p.m. My goodness, there certainly are a lot of ugly, ugly themes and settings! If anybody knows how to get the default font size any bigger, I'd really appreciate a message about that. Squinting makes the baby Jesus cry.
