You know that GOOD kinda sore?

April 4th, 2006 (01:11 am)
current song: Cloudtalk

I feel it everywhere. An all over GOOD ache.

Balls of my feet, shoulders, hands and forearms...
Sunday was wonderful.

The day went by quickly at Opal's--heavy but easy.
It was a mellow crowd, and we were properly staffed.

Megan was a delight. I shadowed her and bucked her trays, and learned the computer.
There was time for chatter and and story telling and meeting my new family.

Why does my left butt cheek hurt???
The muscle groups are very confused--so slack for so long.
My body compensated in strange ways...
but a long HOT bath today--My Day Off--has me nearly back to full function again.

I went in at 5 PM Sunday, and we were cut at 11 PM.
By then I had the tables in my head, and a working knowledge of how orders play out
on the blinky-screen. And I had a lot of new friends.


The lot of us, sat down at #80-81 on the deck outside--and got to drinking what we had
been serving all day. *grin* I got slapped on the shoulder, and my drinks were paid for
by my co-workers. Little Adena told me she was watching me...and she saw me do a
little dance at one point, and jump up to slap the over-hang at full hustle--heading back
in to drop off dishes and pick up food. That was when I knew I liked New Girl!

New Girl was pleased with this information.

A group of about 12 of us, regulars and staff, sat around outside until closing, 2 AM.
Frank, one of the managers, came out several times to check on us, and ask me what
I thought of it all. I love it, Frank. I really love it. (he had subbed as both server &
MOD today...I like a place where people do what needs to be done regardless of title.)

Good, because you are doing a great job.

I grinned like a fiend, sooooo happy.

Only two more shifts until I'm one of the gang for Real!!!
I go in tomorrow at 6 PM.

It's so nice to be excited about waking up again...
