Mystery Shop

March 3rd, 2018 at 08:03 am

I signed up for my first mystery shop. I signed on to the service months ago, but never accepted an assignment because I got sick, and C was dying, and I was caring for the boys after school, and there was just too much going on.

But now I think I can handle it. I have an assignment on Monday which will pay $12. There seems to be a lot of detail to it, but I suppose I will get used to it.

Yesterday I spent $13 at Aldi on peanut butter, California Medley veggies, cheese puffs (to have on hand for the boys), frozen pizza and crackers.

I also spent $5 on Girl Scout Cookies.

This morning I spent $34 on gas.

I am baking bread today. It's in the oven now and it smells great.

I did manage to clean the fish tank yesterday and it looks better, though not perfectly clear yet.

I have my last movie to see today: "Call Me By Your Name." It's been fun, but I'm also a little relieved. That's a lot of movies in one week!

I'm sending a $100 check to my cousin for his wedding, which is going to take place in one hour, in fact!

Believe it or not, my son is pursuing a job at the museum where I did contract work last year! I was able to provide him with a contact name, and I am hoping his conversation with her went well.

    I loved "Call Me By Your Name," mostly for the scenery. It felt like being on a summer vacation in Italy. It was very relaxing to watch, although there were a couple of sex scenes I could have done without.

    Which movie(s) did you like the best?

    My local independent movie theatre has been screening all the nominees and will host an Oscar Viewing Party tomorrow night. I may go if I get enough done before then. I haven't watched the Oscars in over 30 years. When I was a kid growing up in L.A., it was a ritual, but I stopped watching TV regularly after I left home, so all the viewing rituals of my youth (the Olympics, the Oscars, the Rose Bowl Parade) were things that I now associate with childhood.

    Good luck with the shop. They get easier over time. Although I forgot a photo on one of mine today and rescheduled it for tomorrow. I have no excuses. I have done shops for ten years!

    When I lived in Texas I did mystery shops every so often. It is detailed, but kind of fun. (Especially free meals out!)

    Dido, I think the movie I liked best was "Darkest Hour," which was surprising to me; I didn't expect I would like it much. But the performances were great and it was well-crafted, with a triumphant ending. I'm afraid I found "Call Me By Your Name" a bit tedious; I thought the plot was pretty thin.
