I go to work...

I worked yesterday.
I always think there's nothing really to blog about regarding work because it's kinda boring sitting at the front helping customers.

But then I remembered about the 6 foot 9 guy who came in yesterday with blue dreadlocks, velvet pants, blue painted dots all over his face and no shoes... who walked in and just stared and me and Gerry as we sat at the front desk.

Gerry very politely said "ummm. We kind of don't like it when people come in without shoes."

The dude slowly walked to the door... then turned around and stared at us like we had just blown his mind. I think he didn't realize he didn't have shoes on or something... it was very bizarre. We all laughed about blue haired man for hours after that.

I also met a really sweet girl who came in just to say hi to me and tell me she liked the books. I shook her hand and tried to talk to her a little... but she ran out of the shop like a cute little mouse. I think she was nervous to meet me or something. *tee hee*

Or how about the guy who came in to ask me if tattoos hurt (duh) and to tell me that tattoos are FOREVER and did I know that? (double duh)

Today Gerry let me take the day off so I could take photos of Bettina for her website. It's gonna be fun... and I'll try and post a few when I get home tonght.

You know....I was just set and ready to bring my resume to the Zoo for the receptionist position, but I have a phobia about being stared at by blue-haired people.

Sarah, this guy could have come out of the Earth Day Fair where i was today! I was tabling for Farm Sanctuary and talked to a lot of peeps but many, unfortunately, didn't make it over --- and i'm actually disappointed that i didn't get to talk to some of them. A spiky pink-haired 20something wearing a bright pink shirt comes quickly to mind. Hare Krsnas doing their thing. A little girl dressed *exactly* like her mother. Then again, humongous sign-holding religious fanatics screaming about the end of the world make me glad not EVERYone stopped by.

What a people-watching place this was... your Blue Man would have been a perfect part of the Group!

Tattoo studios sure bring out the crazies.I should know Ive worked in them for nearly 10 years.I remember years ago a guy coming in with his pet snake in a bag(no thats not a polite way of talking about his trouser snake).Then there was the phone call from the farmer who wanted us to tattoo his sheep.Weird.I could go on and on.Sarah you too must have a million or so crazy stories.
