dispatches from the front lines

The latest news from the Most Over-Qualified Target Employee Ever:
Today I had my 90-day performance review at Target. I scored "below expectations" in the "fast, fun, and friendly service" category. Just thought you should know.

Although, just for the record, I am 99.9% sure I'm the fastest cashier they have.

I have no doubt. Keep up the good work, Sis!

Ellen reports that a pair of tickets for one of the five sold-out upcoming Arcade Fire shows in NYC sold for $1,525.00 on Ebay. That's one thousand, five hundred, and twenty five dollars. For two tickets. To one show. By a nice little indie band from Canada. I have officially lost all faith in humanity.

My Canadian friends said that, thanks to the internet, all 5 of Arcade Fire's Montreal shows sold out in just 3 minutes. Insanity! We'll never again see fanatics camped out for days in front of the box office to ensure their spot at the front of the line. Now the only people who do things like that are Star Wars nerds. And possibly RenFaire participants. Methinks the world is a sadder place because of it.
