Another fabulous day!

I basically did nothing all day.

In the morning just stood in the front, pretended to do work. Gossipped like it was social event. Then went on my break.

I was stuck in the First booth over lunch.  Singing musicals, trying not to throw the interac pad at the customers who didn’t know how to use the cards. Or for not smiling.

While I was about to go on my break, I was waiting for my lunch when a ketchup packet was hurled at me.

Stunned, I looked around to see who could have thrown it.

There was Johnny grinning mischievously at me.

I scooped up the ketchup package and prepared to throw it back at him but he was at the grill, so I couldnt.

I waited until he returned to the grill table. “Johnny” I cooed. “Love love”

He turned to face me. Whack! I hit him with the ketchup package.

He laughed.

The girls began to tease me. “Oh Johnny and Becky are flirting. There is so much love in the air!”

I smiled. “So much love!”

“Too bad I will have to tell Ate!” Ems sighed. (Ate- elder sister or sister)

“Yes we will have to tell Ate!”

My eyes nearly bugged out of my head in shocked disbelief. “No!” I cried. “Dont you dare tell Ate! Does it look like I have a death wish! I do not have a death wish!”

“Sad, baby will come after you!” Ange mused mournfully. “She will fight you!”

It was a horrifying image that came to mind. Nope!

I grabbed my food and escaped while I could!

It was a great day.

Whenever a someone gives me a hard time, or whenever I want to run and jump off a cliff because a simple yes or no question is harder than a MENSA test, there is always somebody else that will the chaos and turn it into something better!

A customer pulled up to the window she saw me hanging out by my till. (Lane 1) “Rebecca!” she exclaimed, “I thought that was you taking my order! You have a voice of an angel!”

Everyone in drive thru stopped what they were doing and turned to look at me incredulous disbelief.

“Thank you” I replied, blushing.

“You are so sweet! An angel!” the customer went on. “Have a wonderful day!”

Steve reached for the waste basket. “You an Angel?” he echoed. “Does she even know who you are?”

“Steve I am the sweetest kindest person in drive thru!”

“I am going to throw up now!”

We all laughed.

I had been grumpy, trying to maintain a degree of civility and that little bit of kindness made the rest of my afternoon so much better ♥


“You don’t know yourself and that is what is scary” he murmured. “I watched you blossom from a young girl into a woman who doesn’t know her own worth.” he frowned as if he was second-guessing his own musings. “I am watching you go through your life without purpose, without aim. Hoping someone will find you, fix your mistakes and guide you. An arrow through the universe finding its mark. It makes me angry because I know you have such passion such desire to empower and inspire others.”

Her silence was infuriating. “Guess what? Life isn’t like the stories you read. Or write. A hero isn’t going to appear out of nowhere and save you..”

Without warning, she launched herself at him. Nearly barrelling him over before he caught her in his arms. Straddled in his lap, she wrapped her arm tight around his neck, pulling his head down to kiss him. the brush of her lips against his startled him. wariness shivered along his shoulders down his back, however, the sensations that shot through him was anything but.

Her lips moved against his, a tantalizing play. He let her tease him, the taste of her imprinting on his senses. His fingers smoothed over her arms, noting the softness of her skin the warmth seeping into his fingertips as he moved up over her shoulders the fragile line of her collarbone. He thumbed her throat feeling her pulse hum with her excitement.

“Are you trying to seduce me?” he breathed over her lips.

She snorted. “You talk too much.”

He laughed.

“You make me feel vulnerable” she whispered. “You make my heart beat so fast I feel like dying. You make feel how inadequate I am, I have been so alone for so long that I don’t know how to be with you.”

Her eyelashes were wet with unshed tears, her face pale. the stark pain in her voice churned his stomach.

his forehead touched hers. “I had no idea.” he whispered.

“Yeah well, speaking is not my forte”

He kissed her brow, her eyes her cheek finally her mouth. “I guess I didnt make it easier by pointing out your lack of ambition!”

She smacked his chest. He winced. Rubbing the stinging pain away, he brought her hand to his mouth and kissed her fingers. “We are total opposites.” he pointed out. “are you sure we meant to be?”

She glared at him. “of course!”

Then Stop being such a dork.” he whispered. He cradled her close. “and love me. I dont want to be alone without you.”

She bit her lower lip. “If I must.”

His eyebrow lifted. In spite of himself, he began to laugh. “You are such a brat!” he kissed her.

She smiled. “Its what you love about me.”

He groaned. “Get out of here! There is no guarantee what I will do to you!”

She giggled and wiggled out of his lap. “Promises. Promises.”

“Go on! Get!” he smacked her ass. “You’re bothering me!”

Be happy

It was another beautiful day. +4C!

The sun is out, snow is melting! Spring weather! I am so happy!

However, walking to work in this gorgeous weather was another story.

Ice everywhere!

I looked like a scared penguin walking in the middle of the road! I was surprised no one honked their horn at me while driving by. It was safer on the road, then on the sidewalk. The roads were better maintained, then the sidewalks. Didnt feel like breaking a leg which is why I walked on the road.

My day was alright, although I did want to throw a couple of cups.

“I come in the drive-thru 14 000 times and I still can’t read your menu!” a customer actually said that to me.

I wanted to say “Ma’am if you come so many times, you should be able to order without looking at the menu.”

What I said, “Ma’am the menu is labelled 1-10 right to left. Top to bottom. You have 1-4 down on the right side and the 5-10 on the left.”

“No, half the menu is missing! The menu isn’t even numbered. All I see is the salad menu!”

Oh my god, I could see the menu from the CVS screen. The salad menu was on the far right. The breakfast menu was right in front of her face! Above the speaker! Good grief!

The most annoying thing a customer can say to an order taker? “Make sure”

Unless its an allergy request don’t tell us to “make sure” of anything. We make all orders with the same diligence, quality and we try to improve ourselves and the quality with every order we serve. There isnt any special preference for customers, everyone is treated the same, therefore everyone gets quality service. (unless of course you are rude, and the manager calls you on it!)

“Make sure my feta wrap is completely full” – it is full that is why it cant fit properly in the wrapper.

“make sure there is half sugar in my coffee” no.

“Make sure my coffee isnt bitter” I had to ask them to repeat that one four times because I thought I heard wrong. Bitter? How will it be bitter? with 3 cream 2milk and 3 sugar?!

“I want fresh jr. chicken” yeah sure I will get right on it. I will go slaughter the chicken. Pluck them. Fry them and they will be super fresh! Anything else. “MAKE SURE THEY ARE FRESH!”

fuck off before I kick you in your fresh chicken eating face!






I think everyone wants this. Desires this. I do. 💕💕

four out of ten. Could be better.


One of my regular customers came in this afternoon. I never laughed so hard. It was a good thing he couldnt see me, I never blushed so hard in my life! My face was on fire!

He had ordered a large tea with sugar. Then an xtra large coffee black.

“I am sorry, I cant make that order. That takes too much effort.” I drawled.

He laughed. “Really? I know you cant handle an xtra large”

It took me a moment to realize what he was implying. I gasped “really, Victor!” I began to laugh.

“Really! Especially if its black” he teased.

I laughed harder. “Oh my god, Victor!”

It was a good thing no one else was paying attention to our conversation, wow!

Sexual innuendo much!




Ugh what a trying day. However, by mid-afternoon, my mood improved.

I was in drive thru taking orders, mocking the poor guy who had to come in and fix our espresso machines. Every month he has to drive up across the province and fix them. He just replaced the one. He was not impressed.

  • Ryan, have you bought stock in our company yet?
  • Ryan, I think there is a cot downstairs for you.
  • Ryan, how much do you love espresso right now?
  • Ryan, how much do you hate the grave yard shift right now?
  • Ryan, really Ryan why do you have to be in my way?

That one made him raise his head and stare at me in disbelief. “You are just standing there, leaning!”

“Yep time to lean time to clean” I chirped. I didnt move. I just grinned evilly. He was cleaning coffee grounds from a spout with a little brush.

“Really Rebecca!” he groaned.


Steve wanders over to see how Ryan is doing, and Steve sighed. “I guess we need a new one of those huh. You got one.”

“uh no, because I didnt bring one.” Ryan replied.

“Sad” I murmured.

Steve noticed Ryan’s wrench on Smoothie drink counter. “You know Ryan I wouldn’t blame you if you used this on her.” he picked up the wrench. “Look away Em.” he told the McCafe person. “I dont want any witnesses.”

My jaw dropped incredulously. “Give me that!” I grabbed the wrench from Steve. “Look away girls.”

“No witnesses” Em chimed in. The girls turned away.

Steve glared at them. “Oh come on!” he marched back to the presenting table.

“Sorry Ryan I might have to confiscate this and keep my team in line,” I told Ryan.

Later, it was just Sheryl and me in drive-thru. while Em did stock up. I handed a tea to Sheryl so she could give it to Heidi.

“You do it yourself! I am not your slave!” she huffed. I was so stunned by her response I turned to stare at her. She was struggling to keep a straight face.

“What did you just say to me?” I demanded. I was trying not to laugh because it was so bewildering to have someone so quiet and nice say anything so rude!

“uh huh 20 years vs 2 years!” Em chirped.

“Do it yourself!”

We stared at each other and I started to laugh. I was laughing so hard. “Oh my god! Sheryl how can you say that to me!”

“You are my role model!”

“Oh god, dont let Steve hear you say that!”

Everyone started to laugh.

it was a great day at work.

However, when I went to have dinner with my parents, that is when my mood soured.

My sister had signed K up for yoga.

“Yoga is bad!” my mom chimes in.

I almost spat out my food.

“How? Its exercise.” my sister argued.

“No not because of that.” my mom replied. “because of the other thing.”

I frowned. What other thing? “Meditation?”

“Yes. Mediation is the devil’s work”

I just about choked on my food. “How is it the Devil’s work, when it helps lowers stress, calms anxiety and is good for the spirit?”

“Because our pastor said so.”

“right. You need a new pastor. He doesnt know what he is talking about.”

“You are being brainwashed!” my sister snapped “and I dont appreciate you telling my daughter yoga is evil!”

“Prayer is meditation” I went on.

Well, my mother almost had a stroke. “It is not!”

“It is! You are in a peaceful moment, in a peaceful place speaking to God. Mediation allows you to hear God”

“It allows you to hear the Devil!”

And that is when I tuned her out. It amazes me how people have no thoughts for themselves,  no ideas and no willingness to understand.





It is a beautiful sunny day! However, my vampire eyes cant handle it!

I love the sunshine!

I suffered a migraine yesterday, so after my niece left I slept all day. No supper. I didnt wake up til 10am! 18 hours of sleep!

I decided to give into my heart’s desire and buy books.

I would like to be so rich that I could be buying all books I desired. Rebuild my personal library so I could lie in the sun and read all the time!

is a book lover if they cry over a book lost?

I thought I would buy only 1 book to enjoy. However, I managed to find two Cassie Palmer books to continue with the series. Oh my god, I missed Pritikin!

I bought Kay Hooper’s latest Bishop series. I love Hollis Templeton. I think Kay should change the name of the series to the Templeton series because its no longer about Noah Bishop and his wife Miranda Knight and their taskforce. Just about Hollis and her special ability. I am not complaining! Because I adore Hollis!!!

I bought a book in a brand new series by Shannon Mayer. Its being compared to Anita Blake by Laurell K Hamilton. I dont mind the first books of Anita Blake. Later on (the one where she becomes a succubus? Ardeur.) ugh no thank you. maybe Mayer will be better. I dont pay attention to reviews or critics.

I also bought Lora Leigh’s book in her latest series Brute Force. I adored her Callahan Brothers Series. The ambience was dark sexy and of course a mystery. I also enjoyed her Elite Ops series. Livewire. Sigh. Then of course there was the Bound Hearts series. Only enjoyed a couple of them. Because the storyline became repetitive. I mean how many times can a woman fall in love with two men. Have a menage a trois. Fall in love with two brothers. etc. It was always two men. Somehow the woman was always broken. the men had to fix her. Or one of the men was broken and somehow being the Third would help him. I am hoping Collison Point will be better than the others!

You know what makes my day?

When I see my name in a book by a favorite author! If only a supporting character! ♥

Rebecca Hastings. In Til Death Do Us Part by Amanda Quick. AKA Jayne Ann Krentz




I had a dream early this morning that had me thinking about it all day.

We dream about people know or have seen. We dream about our past lives.

I wonder if we dream about our past lives, and our true love from that past life but dont realize it?

The dream was about a relative being married. It was an arranged marriage between the colony of Mennonites that my relatives grew up in, and the Russian Mennonites. (Immigrates)

My niece was supposed to be part of the wedding. However, she resented how traditional it was. How she had to be so polite, courteous etc. She couldnt understand the Plautedeutsch, High German, Russian, German being spoken among everybody. She was being very rebellious.

The wedding colors were red and black. (ironically the wedding colors I want)

The women of the church, brides family, grooms family were all in attendance to have a little welcoming party for the bride when my niece brought her girlfriend. My mother was not too happy about it. Especially since the girlfriend was dressed like a goth lolita. Her hair was dark black with an undercut. The rest of the women were so scandalized they insisted that my niece and her girlfriend leave. Oh my niece left, but not before kissing her girlfriend. A long slow french kiss.

The girlfriend realized my niece was using her to get back at my mom and sister, and fled the church crying


I was so angry by my niece’s behavior that I hauled her outside, “If you don’t start behaving, you will be excommunicated. Do you understand what that means? That means you will never see your mother, grandmother, grandfather or me again. Ever! You will be alone!”

“I rather be alone than be with these hypocrites!” my niece cried. “You dont even accept me!”

“I do accept you, but you’re ruining your cousin’s wedding by being selfish!”

“I hate you auntie!” she ran off.

I started to cry.

I went for a walk, crying in search of something. someone (I realized later who that was)

The wedding started, and my niece returned to the church. I had taken a seat behind the groom’s family. I was still so hurt and upset by her words, and she was making a scene about being part of the wedding party.

“You will sit down by your aunt right now!” a male voice snapped. I looked up to find the groom’s brother in law dragging my niece down the aisle, pushing her between the rows of seats til she was beside me. “You will keep your mouth shut. You will be seen and not heard. You want to act like a child we will treat you like one!”

He had blonde hair. Very good looking (looked like Twan and one of my customers Emil)

He moved to the seat on the other side of me, he sat down. His arm around me. He was so furious he was speaking to me in Russian.

“You cant treat me like this.” my niece pouted.

He leaned over and hissed. “I will take you outside and beat you with my belt if you dont shut up!”

I buried my face in his chest, finding comfort. “You ok” he asked.

We spoke in Russian, and in that moment I never felt a sense of peace or love as I did then. It was wonderful.

Then I had to wake up.

I dont know Russian.

However in some of my dreams I spoke fluent Chinese, French and now Russian. Hmm.
