Good morning! Today is Wednesday, February 23, and what a beautiful day God gave us! Yesterday was a pretty wonderful day, as I woke up around 9:00. You won't believe what I did next....HOMEWORK! Hooray! Brad was productive! I knocked out four or five assignments for my various classes, so I was pretty stoked. I have a couple more to do before the parentals and hermanos arrive on Friday, so I still have some stuff to do. Plus, on Friday, we have our housing inspection-eeeeeek! If an apartment is messy (beds not made, food on the table, etc), they take pictures and send them back to your school. Isn't that weird? So, I have demanded the White Glove Award, where only the cleanest apartments get a big box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

Anyway, I basically spent all of yesterday morning doing homework, and then I left for work around 3:30. My shift was from 4:30-10:30, and it flew by so quickly! I worked Aladdin for about 30 minutes, Comix for the same amount of time, VenturePort for like 3 hours(where I stand and talk to people), and Buzz Lightyear Astro console and exit. My favorite was definitely VenturePort, where I can be as aggressively friendly as I please. One of the more disturbing parts of my day was when I was talking to a crazy group of late twentysomethings from Masachusetts. I asked the one female "What is your favorite thing you've done on vacation?!" She replied "My husband." I obviously started laughing and made the TMI symbol. From now on, I will be more specific with my questions.

You might be wondering what my title is all about, so I will tell you now. I had a group of two teenage girls and a boy around their age. Well, I noticed one had a pin with "Happy Birthday Rachael" on it, so I obviously told her happy birthday, asked how it was going, and we chatted for a solid three minutes. She turned sixteen yesterday, which is obviously a big deal. Well, I ended up seeing this trio at least at least six more times during the night, so I figured I should make sure they knew I didn't forget them. Thus, whenever I saw them, I started chanting "Rachael! Rachael! Rachael!" They always started laughing when I did this, and Rachael would always say "Thanks!" However, everyone else in the area would always look at me like I was crazy, but that's ok with me.

Oh my-I forgot to tell you about my Waffle House experience! Laura and I did end up going on the 20th, I believe. We went to a really sketchy looking one, connected to an awkward gift shop. We couldn't understand a word our waiter said, even though we think he spoke English. I had a buttermilk waffle and a triple-size thing of hash browns covered in cheese. DELICIOUS! As we were finishing up, this group of 8 people came in and started talking to us. They were definitely intoxicated, but they were really friendly and entertaining. So, I went up to pay the ticket, and they asked Laura if she was from Georgia. She said she was, and they all wanted to know what town. She said she currently lives in Athens, which was apparently the answer they were looking for. All eight started cheering and doing random UGA chants-it was pretty funny. After we left, we thought it was especially funny because they never mentioned being from that area. However, the lady I was paying kept telling me "Those drunks need to go back to where they came from!!!" Seriously? You work at a Waffle House in Orlando, and it is 1 am...are you expecting Emily Post?!

Last night after work, 5 coworkers and myself dined at Pizzeria Uno's for half priced appetizers...yummmmmmm! I had a mini deep dish (for 2.99!) and muchos nachos (for 2.99!). Then I decided I needed this mini macadamia nut cookie pizza, and that was fantastic as well. Perhaps the best part of the day was when we were on our way back to Chatham. My friend and coworker Adaisha was trying to make sure she understood what a Mormon was, as we just had that discussion. She said...and I quote..."So, a Mormon is a Muslim who also wants to live life as a Christian?" Everyone else in the car laughed for about 5 minutes, because it was seriously that funny. In case you didn't know, Mormons actually aren't Muslims. :) Well, in a little over an hour, Michael is driving me to the Post Office to get my Passport. Hooray! I will be glad to have this nonsense over with, so yay for that. Today, I work from 4:30-10:30 again, so I should try and get some cleaning done before I head to work.

Tomorrow, I have the day off, but I have class from 8:30-11:30. We have our first assignment due tomorrow, which had to deal with answering questions from the Year in Review from the Annual Report. I also have some more homework for UNK, so I should do that now. Have a magical day!
