Yet again I'm writing this from Leah's store, only this time we're not the only people here: no, the place is full to bursting with store emplyees and their siblings or significant others. Why are we all here? It's a party! A pricing and tagging and inventory party! Yup, we've been here since 8:00 and there's no end in site; we're supposed to be here to midnight (and Leah told me 10:00!), but the boxes keep coming.
What we're doing is, the store got a big shipment from Canada (Lululemon is a Canadian company, and this is their only US location so far), and somebody needs to take everything out of the boxes, count all the items to make sure the invoices are right, reprice everything with price tags more appropriate to US currency, and put on the security tags. All told it takes, oh, thirty seconds to a minute for each garment, and there are about a million... a billion garments to be done. It's kind of fun... for a little bit. But now my back hurts and I'm glad to take a break to write here. I'm glad I don't have to do that sort of thing for a full time job! Poor Chinese factory laborers. On the other hand, I did work on web sites all day, and by 5:00 my arm was dying with pain. The desktop is too high for comfortable long-term mousing, is the problem.
In other news, other people at blog.evula.net had been reporting spam in their blog comments in the past week or so, and today I joined the ranks of the spamees. Four junk comments deleted from two IP addresses, which have been banned. But I'm sure they have more. Pretty irritating. I'll think about what can be done about it if the problem gets worse.
