2 days in to my new work place, and it's not going to badly. I'm getting tired quite early - it's been over a month since I last worked, and over 6 months since I last worked full time. The people have been nice so far - I met my boss yesterday, and now she's on leave for 5 weeks. I'm sort of covering for her as well as the store's full time music dude, who recently snapped his ankle while playing footy - who says sport is good for you?

I had fun rearranging the world music section today. Whenever I go to a new store, I like to rearrange stuff so that it is how I like it (because I am best), but this store was already in pretty good shape. I gave the world section a bit of a shuffle, and the rest of the store just needs a bit of tweaking. However, that will all have to take a back seat for a week or so, because I've been given something of a baptism of fire - stocktake is next Tuesday! Aargh! I can already hear the beeps! So if you want to go to a JB store next week, don't go on Tuesday, they'll all be closed.

Getting to work is surprisingly easy. I cycled up the St George's Road bike path to Preston Station this morning (Preston is a zone 1/2 border station, so if I catch the train from there, I only have to pay for a zone 2 ticket - $20 a week as opposed to $50 for a zone 1+2 weekly), and then it's less than 20 minutes on the train, followed by a 5 minute bike ride - I was at work in about 40 minutes.

And you know what else I did? Because I am only catching the train - no buses or trams for me - I can use my Myki card! Today was my first day of "touching in" and "touching out" on Melbourne's public transport (sounds dirty).

In today's delicious news, [livejournal.com profile] nixwilliams made a delicious putanesca pasta sauce for dinner, followed by Golden Syrup Dumplings Of Awesomeness!!! (That is there official title - including the three exclamities). It is because [livejournal.com profile] nixwilliams is my Partner Of Awesomeness!!!™

I think it is time for bed. Good night

Bendigo is on the myki system now and I actually don't mind it. It's easier than i thought and there havent been any glitches as far as I can tell for me. very handy!

Have fun at stocktake :)

The trains in Melbourne have been on it for a while, but the buses and trams just have posters everywhere saying "coming soon...". I have no idea what their definition of soon is, but until it arrives, Myki is almost useless for me (or at least it was until this week).

And stocktake. Hoo, and indeed, rah.

BRETT YOU'VE GOT IT GOING O-ON
