OH JUST BY THE WAY, GORILLA PERFUMES (our perfumers, headed up by Mark and Simon Constantine) REBLOGGED MY SILLY WEBCAM REVIEW OF GINGER PERFUME AND SAID THEY LOVED IT SO I’M SCREAMING
The amount of personal connection it’s totally reasonable to have with the company I work for is insane. I’m on cloud 9. So. That’s a thing that happened. I’ll be at work from 10 AM-5, followed by a meeting at 8:30 for management team members and a full meeting at 10 PM and I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER to spend all day at work because the company I work for is AMAZING.
I have a fever and the chills so bad and it’s snowing out and I’m most frustrated about the fact that because of illness I am not at work today and snow makes it really hard to drive the next day because you have to dig your car out
And you try being a 4’11 female with little to no upper body strength digging her car out of the snow
Hey, no need to justify, I'm super flattered either way. I'm really glad you like it (still).
I do! And people always seem to enjoy it when your songs play on the music system at my work as well. There’s been like six times that little kids have danced around to it and I wanted to film it cause it was super cute but you can’t just film children you don’t know. Some hip 15 year old with an eyebrow piercing tried to Shazam Cannonball once and I mentioned who the artist was and she told me she like definitely thinks she saw your set at Bonnaroo and like oh my god it was SICK. So someone has officially pretended to know who you are. So that’s cool.
Shoutout to the 17 year old guy at the Auntie Anne’s stand outside my work listening to Say Anything and leaning against the back counter just daring people to buy a pretzel and also periodically staring into our store like he’s trying to burn lyrics into our souls
I know son, you are alternative, I get it, stop creeping our customers out
So this kid came in yesterday wearing a sweatshirt with a space background and giant cat face on it, OVER A CHECKERED PRINT COLLARED SHIRT, and would not stop chatting up one of our girls for about 45 minutes, who is a little spacey herself, and then came back later to ask for her number. And they’re going on a date.
Apparently they talked about acting and penguins and a bunch of other weird shit and she was super excited about it and it led to this whole weird discussion between Stef and I about people being meant to find each other and we wound up just referring to significant others as Space Cats, like, “everyone has a Space Cat, he’s her Space Cat, and we’re all just looking for our Space Cats”
Because she’s a huge stoner, and I’m not, but I was really tired and it felt normal for a second there
So I post a Facebook status about wanting to move to LA and asking about travel tips for traveling alone/etc. and if anyone knows anyone out there I could stay with/could show me around/etc. and I got this huge, immediate wave of support. And that’s really nice.
Like, I posted it and went back to doing work and my phone buzzed like three times, I had like six messages on Facebook, and half of them were just people saying “Wow that’s awesome!” Like, one of our holiday hires messaged me and was like “I lived in San Diego for 6 years, let me know if you want to talk about it! I fully support you in this adventure.”
So i’m a little emotional. Random support and encouragement from strangers and friends alike. It’s just so nice.
And a friend of mine was planning a trip in the spring and so was I so I mean that’s glorious. And she’s flown a lot more than I have so she knows the deal, which I don’t. At all.
THIS IS ALL JUST HAPPENING SO FAST. I’m really excited. So yeah.
