Workin' the 9-5...

Me and Gus gus

So I finally caved and got a job.... I was pretty ready for it. Actually I maxed out all my credit cards so I really had no choice. Either apply for more credit cards or stop being a bum and get a J-O-B. Since jobs are literally no where to be found I was lucky to get this one. My friend actually had been bugging me to come and apply at her salon and finally she just told me " This lady wants to hire you come in" pretty much served on a silver platter. All I had to do was walk in. Of course she was in love with me from the second she saw this big blond beauty... Who wouldn't be? HAHAHAHA I love how people say " Oh my gosh you are so beautiful, thats a plus I already love you" uummm... So if I was ugly I wouldn't get the job? The beauty industry can be quite brutal! Little did she know I had to actually LOOK for my make up bag because it has been awhile since I have needed it. And my hair for the past few months has been white trash roots. I forgot how much my back kills working in a salon. You get used to to it after awhile but MAN! I feel like I'm 80 years old. There is another Brook(e) that works there so they are trying to get me to go by a nickname and I am SO against it. The owner calls me "Marilyn" and its funny and cute but thats not my name. Yes thanks for calling me Marilyn Monroe (wow never heard that before since I have platinum hair and red lips I must be her) but do they honestly think I will respond to a name that is not mine? That I will change my name like I am a rockstar? UM NO! I am so far from someone with an alter ego... (actually that's a lie. My alter egos are little red riding hood and a big black southern gospel singer... )but the weird part is a lot of the ladies in there don't go by their real name... So random... But with a name like Brook you can't really shorten in. Anyways....

It was so depressing this morning I left and as I was driving away little Gus ran to the front door and was giving me puppy dog eyes... It broke my heart... I seriously almost quit on my first day. He seriously melts my grudged heart! hahaha I missed him all day and I could think about was givin' him some suga!!! He loves his mother love!
