Bang! Transfered.

June 22, 2010

I was recently transferred to work at the newer but smaller location of my salon. And I am the happiest girl in the world. Now instead of working across the street from a gas station, I work on the same block as cupcakes, pedicures, coffee, and….PIZZA. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT????

Also, the pedicures are the best pedicures of your life. Especially if “Anne,” is your provider. I told Anne that I didn’t believe that Anne is her real name and she told me her real name is Yummy, but Americans laugh at that for some reason.

The one bad thing about my new salon is that the old salon remodeled and we got their hand-me-down shampoo bowls with those hair traps that make me cry when I have to clean them out. My co-assistant, Marcus, literally threw up last time he cleaned them. So I don’t think that I’m going to get out of that job because I’m a lady. He’s kind of a lady too.

I am also the happiest girl in the world because So You Think You Can Dance is in full swing again.  This season is weird, they brought back “All-Stars,” from other seasons, and it’s wonderful to see them again, but now there are fewer contestants to love or be grossed out by. Which is sad. But I guess fewer contestants=fewer tap dancers. So that’s something to be thankful for.

Uncle Eddie

June 14, 2010

I know I haven’t “blogged” in 4-ever. I hope you don’t teach me my lesson the hard way by never reading my blog again.

This is my Uncle Eddie:

Here are some facts:

1. Eddie lives on the Big Island of Hawaii. In a tent. A tent surrounded by man-made ponds and streams.

2. Eddie grows his own coffee (among other things he grows for himself) and grinds it up with vanilla and macadamia nuts. It’s totally bomb bomb.

3. Eddie only has one leg but he still surfs and spear fishes.

4. Eddie always smells exactly the same.

Sean and Paul Quintana are currently in Hawaii with Eddie.  I couldn’t go because of work, and I feel really left out.  But I talked to Eddie about it on the phone and he said “Try not to worry about it too much, Ashley girl, we’ll get together soon.”   He also told me, “Just always try to do the best you can, that’s what you have to do to be a good girl.”  Apparently they all went spear fishing, with sharks, in the middle of the night. So that sounds like a good idea.

Oh, also, Sean graduated. And he wore some reeeeeally high pants while he did it.
