The ::Kachunk:: ::Kachunk:: Of The Pricing Gun

This week is kind of a blur of busy work and then evenings spent at the Buddhist centre getting ready for the conference next weekend. Fortunately I'm sleeping pretty well, but I've been waking up progressively earlier and earlier. This morning it was just after 5am. Urgh. The upside though is that I have to be at the conference venue on Saturday at 6am, so if I'm going to be getting up early all this week then Saturday shouldn't feel like too much of a hardship, right? Right?

Oh look at that, the glass is half full!

Last night the lovely Morgan volunteered to give me a hand, which was very sweet of him. We were a book counting and pricing machine people. You could hardly hear yourself think for the ::kachunk:: of the pricing gun. (Ok, slight exaggeration, but we did get a lot done.) Having pleasant company made the job that much easier, and certainly more fun. Afterwards Morgan and I went for a quick Indian meal, had a pleasant stroll through Newtown, and then I headed home for an early night. Good times.

What a gorgeously satisfied sounding statement Morgan 'Good times, indeed'
I can almost feel the smile.

The Other Andrew said...

It's a very nice smile too, 60s Girl.

OK, we need to stop this. If he gets spooked it will not be a Good Thing. :)

Bodhi said...

You two are just sooo cute. Even if it is somewhat of a blushing swoonfest ;-)

Michael said...

Oh God, if he's into Martha, just fucking shoot me. ;-)


OK, I'll stop now, having finally found a use for this fainting chaise in my bedroom.

The Other Andrew said...

Ok, that's it, I'm going to have to stop mentioning him because you all just can't restrain yourselves. Bad, bad readers!

Bodhi said...

Mikey, you have been a bad boy.

Go to my room. Now!

Michael Guy said...

Oh, Mary...I can't tell you how divoon this is all playing in the heartland here.

"Program. Programs...getcha' program here."

Even my hardened heart is thawing. Is there a big musical dance number in ACT TWO?

The Other Andrew said...

There may be a sad and poignant number in Act 2 if all this attention scares him off. Followed by bloodshed.

I know, I know, I started it by even mentioning him. I should have known you all have poor impulse control...

Bodhi said...

restrain

impulse control

Where does he come up with this weird and wonderful vocabulary?

I am assuming that will be a Bollywood muscial number? And of course your inner Martha has caused you to both make all the costuming yourself, edit write and produce the programs, and provide the catering?

morgan said...

Spooked? Scared off? Not at all. It's early days, but good ones...

My Marthas come with Muffins or Vandellas, btw.

morgan said...

And there's stuff that could scare TOA off, too...

The Other Andrew said...

...and, we're back.

Marthas also come with Wash and Graham where I come from. (You know that I'm just dying from you mentioning both of those Marthas, don't you? I'm mean, Martha & The Vadellas! Be still my grooving heart.)

I do love a nice smile TOA.

I had an elderly patient who told me i had a cheeky smile the other night. Then she wanted to hug me, "Come here, come on i want to give you a big hug you are gorgeous!" Ok so her brain was a bit shook up but i do believe that this could have been a lucid moment. LOL

Gee i like the look of the words 'restrain' and 'impulse control' in italics its very sexy.

So back to the Bollywood(oh i love Bollywood)catering would that be Morgan, TOA or both on a platter?

Sorry couldnt help myself there..i really want you to have privacy at the Bollywood catering moment.

My oldest sister worked in a nursing home for a brief period of time, and there was one old dear who was convinced that one of the other workers (female) was her son. "Come here, son." She used to croon to this woman. Always made my sister smile, and I don't think it bothered the other worker too much.

I'm sure that the woman you were dealing with was having a lucid moment!
