M's first day at Camille's! Yay!

Today was my first day working at Camille's, and I must say, I feel very sleepy now XD. I need to get used to working again, and being on my feet for so many hours. But Camille's already beats working at Summer Fresh, if only because I get to MOVE AROUND. It'll take me awhile to learn how to make all the coffee/smoothie drinks and sandwiches properly, but I shall do my best ^^.

I rode to Joplin with my dad for work today, because our schedules were similar'ish enough to warrant me waiting after work for him, in order to save money due to the retarded gas prices. While I was generally being a bum in the back, letting my feet cool off in the instrument repair area, I got offered another job XD. How did my dad's manager say it... "You're welcome to loaf around our store, but how about getting paid for loafing around our store?" XD. So maybe I'll be doing inventory at random for the music store my dad works at too ^^. It's not a sure thing yet-- depends on what the manager says. I wouldn't mind it, though.

I have no work tomorrow, so I'm happy about that ^_^. I'll be training again on Wednesday - Saturday though, so hopefully the recipes will stick better in my head these next few days o.-;. I suck at food-making in general, but I want to try for some reason XD.

I'm glad you're doing alright there! X333 How are the customers? Or are you just making stuff and not taking orders?

And whoo for another job opportunity. ^______^ M-sama is so multi-talented, juggling foodstuffs and music stuffs!

The customers aren't bad actually, or so far at least ^^;. Even when I'm making stuff pretty slowly, from not being familiar with how to make the stuffs, they're still always really nice, or at least not bitchy ^^;;;. The only annoying this is when people walk up to the register and say "What do you have here?" I kinda sweatdrop, and give a general list of things we sell (coffee, sandwiches, etc.), and then hand them a menu, which they hand back, because they don't want to read. ARE WE LIVING IN SUCH AN ILLITERATE NATION? READ THE MENU, PLEASE. I take orders, make smoothies, prepare the occasional sandwich when the shop is slow (because if I had to make more than one, it'd take me forever, at my skill level now XD; ), and just generally do everything that all the other workers would do, but at a slower rate ^^;. I'm getting better, though ^^.

Okay, so the second mini-job at the music store fell through ^^;. Oh well, I'll still hang out there every time I ride up to Joplin with my dad XD. I don't need to be paid, I just need a place to plant myself for a little while after work, as to let my feet regain non-hurt'y-ness ^^.

I have to do that a lot, waving at the HUGE-OH menu on the wall and listing stuff. XD Or I have to play 20 questions and narrow down what they like. Fun stuff fun.

GANBATTE NE!!! *CLINGS TO* At least it's not as stressful without all your classes. Homg how did you do it again? XD

I can't even see the menu that's hanging on the outside of the kiosk, but I have little laminated menus by the register that I gesture to. READING IS FUN, PEOPLE, SHEESH. CATCH ONTO THE CRAZE. Half the time I end up reading the ingredients lists off of the menu to the customers... agh XD. Annoooying. I don't know enough about all the stuff we sell yet, so I have yet the joy of working with someone to narrow down what their heart truly desires from our restaurant XD.

How did I do it? TEARS AND BREAKING DOWN AND BITING THE BULLET ANWAY! KINDA! Ahh, classes are no fun-- making me own up to the responsibility of being a student ^^;.

I love how people put their FINGER on the thing and ask what it is. We not only have it in two languages (Chinese and English) but it's COLOR-CODED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE IN CASE YOU CAN'T READ! Red for red beans, yellow for mung beans, purple for taro!

X_____________X M-sama is so hardworking for she is a better student than I. *falls to floor and worships*

Wow, your menu sounds fancy ^o^. In TWO LANGUAGES? That's pretty awesome ^^. And color coding! I don't think we do all that ^^;.

Wait... what are mung beans and taro o.o? Those sound mysterious!

That's crap, about me being a better student than you are XD. I think your latest grades proved that ^_^. *falls to the floor out of half worship / half exauhstion*

That's only for the sesame seed balls we sell. All those are the fillings we have. X3

Mung bean but we buy the ones that doesn't have the skin on them, so the paste my mom makes from it is actually yellow. Red bean paste she makes is the mashed kind, unlike the mung bean paste which is smooth. Taro is pretty good. It's a type of root like a potato and it looks like this when it's sold. ^_^

THERE'S YOU'RE MINI LESSON FOR THE DAY! XD;;

Um... naaaaaah. M-sama is so much more hardworking, doing summer school and all. ^_^;; Craziness.

Wow, that was really informative XD. Thank you for explaining that to me ^o^.

The taro stuff looks crazy o.o. Everything else looks fairly yummy though, so maybe I'll try finding something at the asian food store around here with those in it. Maybe I'll be adventurous and try the taro too XD.

We peel off the outside, boil it until it gets soft, then add sugar and mash it up. It does taste good, at least how my mom makes it anyway. XD;;
