My Karl Strauss job and Christmas :(

Well, first off, everyone should know that I found out last week I can't get off work to come home for Christmas/New Year's so I'm coming home to celebrate Christmas and see everyone in good ol' Minnesota from December 3rd-10th...it took me 6 weeks to find the job I have and I can't afford to look for one that will give me time off for Christmas so there ya go! I'm fine with it and I'm excited still to see everyone in Minnesota when I come back. I'm very fortunate to get to go back to Minnesota at all so yeah...it's all good!

And now, after working at Karl Strauss for an entire weekend I am happy to report that I do in fact like my job so far. Greeting at the bottom of the stairs gets very boring very quickly but I get paid 11.50 to do it so who's complaining, haha. Plus my co-workers are fun and when I do get a chance to have a real conversation with the people I'm greeting that's VERY fun...although the other day it got interesting when I got asked for my phone number twice in ten minutes! Needless to say, I was not quick to hand out my personal information, but I was also a good business woman and said that maybe if they came around more and I got to know them it would be a different story, haha. I'm COMPLETELY not used to getting that kind of attention though so it's kind of been throwing me off.

I've also done a little training at the host stand as well and I LOVE it up there! It's fast paced and high-stress and totally my "cup of tea"...so that's fun and I also get free meals while I'm training and our food is FABULOUS so that's been great too.

Anyways, that's all for now...goodbye from sunny sunny Hollywood...

Hey Cassie,
Its good to see that you have a job and are liking it too. Sorry to be the one letting you down, but I don't get to Minnesota until Dec. 16 or so. I hope we can do something with you still maybe later than christmas, but hey we did finally have bowling night together after 5 years of planning it. lol. It's been good over here in IL though and Mary is doing her internship right now. By the way you are invited for the wedding, but it won't be until New Years 2010. It seems so far away...anyway, I hope we will be able to do stuff sometime.
