Time For Spoilers! :)  

It's been a tough week and we're trying to get this to you all as fast as we can. Christmastime is so busy! And we have SO many ideas for the next few chapters! If only we could both take a week off work and just write. That would be heavenly. *Sigh*

Oh, BTW, I want to reprint this just briefly. It was something originally posted for

sean_montgomery and ellalou73 :

The Cashier's Lament


A lot of people forget during this season that the cashiers and baggers and cafe workers, etc. are *also* people. The stress and hurry and worry they're feeling is pretty much mirrored by us. I had one man completely blow up at me last night and it took every ounce of strength in me to be nice and try to reason with him over the price of a washcloth. A two dollar washcloth.

In the end, after going over to the display and rereading the prices, he calmed down and admitted he was wrong. Turns out that he had driven down straight from West Virginia to Jacksonville, Fl, only to check into his hotel (he's having a house built in Ponte Vedra and it's nearly done) and find that they had run out of towels. Can you believe that? *LOL* And it was the Radisson, too. *snicker* He was just looking for a good price for stuff that could go to the new house as well. And it *was* 9:45 at night.

In the end, I think he took five minutes to apologize and thank me for having the Christmas spirit. After all of that, I really appreciated it, as last night was a chamber of horrors in that five people (including managers) were closing an nine-position store. Didn't mean I didn't want to kick him, but it was awesome that he even took the time to admit he was wrong.

For those of you behind the counter like me, Sean, and Ella, keep holding on. There's someone out there with you slogging it out. I'll be thinking of you every night until, Christmas and hope we get through it.

For the rest of you, think of every cashier as us. And hug your cashier today. Trust me, they need it! ;)

...

End of speech. Sorry, but needed to get it out there.

EDIT: Also, a new video from purplesunbeam! I didn't make this one! (Sorry for any confusion!)



And I plan to see what I can do for a Christmas video while I'm home today, as well as starting on the Superman Saga/'It's All Coming Back To Me' one.

Now *LOL* to the spoiler. :) 


The cell phone buzzed for a second, then played the first recorded message. “Lois, it’s Richard. I saw the news. We need to talk.” An abrupt click as he hung up the phone, and Lois pinched the bridge of her nose, wondering if this was what a migraine felt like. 

Next message…

“Miss Lane, this is Jimmy. I think the Chief’s really mad at you – he’s turning red and yelling something about you and the news? Call me before you come back to the office and I’ll let you know if the coast is clear.” Even as he whispered, she could hear Perry bellowing in the background.

Next message…

“Lois, this is your mother. I hope you realize you’ve just traumatized your twins. They were watching TV, and they saw all of that. Kala’s in her room claiming that there’s nobody named Kala home right now, and Jason’s in tears because he says you said you and Superman were friends and now you’re being mean. Call me.”

Next message…

:)

Mourning, exhausted cashiers at Christmastime unite! *raises fist*

Another nifty video... and another spoiler! This one helps me remember that I've still got a little left to read in LS. Since I've got time (and a teeny-tiny rut in my 12 Days fic), I'll head over to ff.net and get to reviewn'!

Take your time with the next installment. It gives me time to catch up! *ducks from the tomatoes being thrown at her from other fans*
Loiskalalanekent on December 7th, 2006 05:46 pm (UTC)
Awww, sweetie! Take your time. I'm going to try again to get caught up on Brian and Bisty's stories. It really stinks to only have one day a week to catch up. Especially when you're dying to read something! Too many irons in the fire, I guess. At least I'll be on most of the day.

And isn't the vid great? God, SO LS. I'm going to use that and 'It's Not Over' by Daughtry in an upcoming chapter. You wouldn't believe the amount of music that goes into this story that no one ever knows about. I was biting my lip through 'Stupid Like This'. Just a perfect, perfect song for them.
sean_montgomery: Clark - Booknerdsean_montgomery on December 7th, 2006 06:03 pm (UTC)
Awww, sweetie! Take your time.

Can't. Gotta do it now. Really. If I don't motivate myself to do it now, I'll never get it done (just ask Brian - I took a break from his one day and now I'm, like, thirty-something chapters behind... okay, not really, but you know what I mean).

I'm going to use that and 'It's Not Over' by Daughtry in an upcoming chapter.

Bisty's own video notwithstanding, all I think about with 'It's Not Over' is Lois and Clark. TOTALLY not over! Hello! She wouldn't have flown with him if it wasn't! :D But 'Stupid Like This' is right for the moment, according to the teaser (and the previous chapter). To quote Barb, Lois and Clark have some issues. :D
Loiskalalanekent on December 7th, 2006 06:07 pm (UTC)
And the worst part about it is that they're still totally in love, though one is still attempting hopeless denial for fear of the future and the other is tangled up in the fact that the other is engaged and he has no right looking sideways at her. Moral fibre can be a terrible thing sometimes. :)
sean_montgomery: Jason - Goofysean_montgomery on December 7th, 2006 06:11 pm (UTC)
Moral fibre can be a terrible thing sometimes.

Summed it up perfectly. It doesn't help that Lois was totally willing to go into that kiss in the closet. It might have helped things more if she hadn't jumped into the moment... really, they both made it worse for the other RIGHT THERE. Now they KNOW they're still in love... but, really, they can't (or won't) do anything about it. From my little peeks, though (bad Abby! *slaps hand*), it looks like Lana is getting Richard's attention...

Whatever do you mean?

*LOL*
sean_montgomery: Me-hysteriasean_montgomery on December 7th, 2006 07:23 pm (UTC)
(sorry, had to step away - dad needed the computer)

It's Lana, isn't it?! GAH!! *runs around the room*

I just posted chapter 49 this morning, so thirty sounds about right. *grin*
Loiskalalanekent on December 7th, 2006 07:12 pm (UTC)
:P Let's say it in a chorus now, Abby!

"BRIII-AN!!"

*Both cross arms and pout*
sean_montgomery: Me-amusedsean_montgomery on December 7th, 2006 07:25 pm (UTC)
Except mine wouldn't be quite like that...it'd be more like me stretching my arms through cyberspace and grabbing him by the shoulders, then pushing him back and fourth until his head wobbled. :D THEN, I'd say "BRIII-AN!!"
Loiskalalanekent on December 7th, 2006 07:13 pm (UTC)
BTW, she's reading the 'Pulitzers' next, Brian. *LOL*
sean_montgomery: Clark - Booknerdsean_montgomery on December 7th, 2006 07:25 pm (UTC)
And I'm reeeeaaaallllyyy excited about that! Whoo hoo!
Loiskalalanekent on December 7th, 2006 07:45 pm (UTC)
It's one of my favorite chapters. Watch out for that last line. ;)

Relax, I'm a bit behind on reviews, too. It's tough to stay caught up when there are so many good stories.
