Dear Hot Topic [Apr. 10th, 2005|12:41 pm]
Inside Scoop Jelly_Pop

You have been awesome. And even though it feels like an era is ending soon, I want you to know that it was the best couple summers of my life working there. You made bad times good, and good times fun, and introduced me to some of the best people I've ever met. The people I've met working at HT feel like friends, not just co-workers, and I'm going to miss them all ever so much. This summer will not be the same without that store in my life. Thank you for all the fun times, and the scarey times, and the crazy times.

And to the people who work there... You are my friends. Don't lose my number. I love you all and I'll miss you all. Thank you guys so much for being there when things got crazy, thank you for all your love and support these last couple years. I feel closer to you than just about any of my other friends, because work was always like therapy, or better because you guys understood.

It's time for some of us to move on. And that's a good thing. Some of us have already moved on and are better for it. Some of us are just stepping out. Some of us are still trying to get their asses fired ( ;) ). Good luck. Good luck to everyone in everything they deiced to do. And like Jaye said, one day we'll be so Sex In The City about this and laugh at it all over lunch, I hope we really do. Seriously. And may one of us one day come back (or move up) and be in a position to fire Lauren.

I love you guys, and I love that store, and my summers will never be the same. Keep in touch guys... I'll be around all summer, and I'll probably be in the mall. You know where to find me. And I know where to find most of you. MWAH!!!!

I'm bored too, so I'ma bite off Ashley :) [Jan. 24th, 2005|01:01 pm]

[mood |boredbored]

Personal Information

Name: Jess, or some variation thereof.

Hero And Why: I don't think I have a hero in the normal sense of the word. I admire people... Like my mom, or my law prof this semester (she argued Planned Parenthood vs. Casey in front of the Supreme Court and won) or my polisci prof (he's got like 10 bachelor's degrees, four masters, a couple doctorates, and has minored in just about everything else, and he travels all over the world doing development work in third world countries, and he's been in the Air Force, and on top of it all he's like the coolest, most laid back teacher ever)...

Nobody Knows That I: If no one knows, wouldn't I want to keep it that way?

What About You Makes You Stand Out In A Crowd? Well I used to be able to say my bright red hair, but since I went back to brown (and truth be told, I really don't miss the red)... I'd say the fact that there's no hiding the boobies. That and I'm probably the one screaming about politics or dancing on the table.

Possession That Brings You Luck: Frank, the green quartz frog Dave gave me, and my three year old too-small red cherry unders (whenever I wear them, things go right with whatever boy I have my eye on).

Things You Collect (i.e. stamps, Star Wars memorabilia): Purses, ladybugs, clothes that look pretty on the hanger but I'll never wear them.

What Do You Want To Be Remembered For? Changing things up a little bit.

What Would You Want Your Last Meal To Be? Wow, that's tough... Since, ostensibly, I'd be dying within an hour or so of eating it, I'd say steak, a baked potato, broccoli and carrots, some shrimp, and maybe some corn or something. And an apple martini and a big slice of chocolate cake. Or just Elio's pizza.

A Superhero Power You'd Like To Have? teleportation.

What Gives You The Chills?: hearing someone hit a solid note when they sing.

Your First Crush: Ha, this kid Dave in grade school... I think he hated me.

Anything Else You Feel Like Sharing? I dunno... No?


The Best Part Of Your Job? The people who work there... Duh!

The First Thing You Remember Buying At Hot Topic? Those blue Sugar sneakers with a rainbow platform.

Your Most Prized Hot Topic Possession: Hrm... I dunno. I guess my nametag (that better be there when I get back!)

Your Best Customer Experience: This lady was looking for a shirt from this band... "E-something... E... Or maybe A..." And I was like, um, Evanescence, and the woman looked at me like I just saved her life. Turns out it was like her daughter's favorite band or something and it was the girl's birthday.


Oldest Item Of Clothing In Your Closet: I have a bunch of my Mom's old dresses... One from her junior high dance (that my grandma made and it still fits me).

Item Of Clothing You Can't Live Without: my jeans.

Worst Fashion Trend: Oh god, where to start... Nevermind,I know... Those damn tinkerbelle skirts. And the ruffle ones that flounce.

Celebrity Most In Need Of A Hot Topic Makeover: Lil Bow Wow.

Item Of Clothing You Would Never Admit To Wearing Even Though You Did: Ha, I admit it... I wore stretch pants and scrunchies and Jnco's (I was even pissed when they started making flares) and the big bellbottoms with panels in the sides and oh... Catholic schoolgirl skirts and mallrat-goth and Spice Girl-esque clothes... Oohh I was a nightmare!

One Accessory Nobody Should Be Without: Scarves.


Best Band To Ever Walk The Face Of The Earth: Wow... That's a tall order... And I'd have to say the Beatles, in that sense. I mean, they're not my personal favorite, but objectively...

Most Overrated Band: Good Charlotte, HIM, Dashboard, Nirvana.

"Best Kept Secret? Band: Jump Little Children. I've been all about these guys for like six years and still no one knows who they are and I LOVE that.

Three CDs You Can't Live Without: right this second... Tori Amos "Little Earthquakes", Brand New "Your Favorite Weapon", and Joni Mitchell "Miles of Aisles"

Rock Star That Resembles You The Most: I dunno.... Probably someone boring.

Most Disappointing CD You Own: I don't buy cds that will disappoint me, I'm too cheap for that.

Type of Music You Just Don't Get: ICP and nu-metal and that bling-bling-I'm-so-gansta-look-at-my-nasty-gold-teeth rap.

Favorite Genre of Music: I guess it would be like alternative... I love 90's alt-rock more than anything, I think.

Best Concert You Have Ever Attended: Oh god... That's tough. Sigur Ros was INCREDIBLE, but the people I was with sucked. Red Hot Chili Peppers were fantastic. Tori Amos, both times... Liz Phair... Joni Mitchell...George Clinton and PFunk...Beck... Blue Man Group... David Bowie... Unlimited Sunshine tour was a great experience overall though, and even though now I have really bad memories of the person I went with, the memories of that day are still good, so I'm gonna say that... Unlimited Sunshine tour (Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Cake, and De La Soul).

Worst Concert You Have Ever Attended: Hmm... Probably those stupid VFW shows I got dragged to when I dated various members of Media Control and its various incarnations... I hate local hardcore.

Music Artist Have You Seen The Most: Tori Amos, Alanis Morisette, and Saves the Day are tied for twice.


Favorite Noise: music!

Favorite TV Show: Family Guy, Aqua Teen, Arrested Development, and VH1 in general.

Favorite Travel Destination: Barcelona was beautiful.

Favorite Book: Middlesex, Who's Who in Hell, anything by Roald Dahl or Allen Ginsberg, On the Road and Maggie Cassidy, anything by JD Salinger, White Teeth, anything by Hunter S. Thompson... It could go on...

Favorite Cartoon: Family Guy and Aqua Teen

Favorite Movie: I could go on forever, but the short list: Empire Records, Fear and Loathing, Frida, and anything involving Johnny Depp.

Favorite Indulgence: shopping

Favorite Thing To Do When You're Not Working: Hang out with Dave, read... I'm such a fucking geek.

You're O-Ren Ishii! Twisted and homicidal, you respect most people, but let them know not to mess with you. You have a talent for sensing danger, and keep only the most loyal and skilled people around you.

I know I'm posting this everywhere, but... [Jan. 4th, 2005|04:01 pm]
Inside Scoop Jelly_Pop

Hey kids... Jaye told me hours in the store are getting cut big time, so if anyone's looking for a few extra hours and some extra cash, come over to Watch World... One girl's father just had a stroke, so she's on leave taking care of him, two of us are going back to school, and our manager is looking at TWO surgeries in the near future, so if anyone wants some extra time, please come over... It's an easy job and it's comission... And I'd LOVE anyone who decides to come help us, cause we're really blitzed trying to find coverage... Or if any of you know anyone who's looking for work, send them over... Minimum age is 18, that's pretty much the only stipulation... Thanks guys!!!

Happy New Year! [Dec. 29th, 2004|04:59 pm]

So I'm leaving earlier than I thought for the Poconos (like, I'm leaving in two hours), so I just wanted to say hi and tell you all


Love you all, and be safe!

[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Yeah. That pretty much says it all... For all of you working today, I sympathize... I'm off, but I'm helping my mom prepare for dinner for twenty people. I think I'd rather be in the mall.

Anyway, Merry Christmas all! And Happy New Year, too, being as I'll be in the Poconos (though it appears doing more hiking than skiing, as Mother Nature has decided to screw us with this bullshit warm weather lately). Either way, hope you're doing something fun at midnight!

Hey guys! Just wanted to say hi... I'll probably be working a shift or two over my semester break, Jaye said he'd find me some hours if I wanted them, and I'm just nailing down some dates... I've got a crazy crazy break coming up (that is if I ever make it through the hell of next Tueday and Wednesday... I have three finals Tuesday, one Wednesday, from which I go directly to work at Hamilton, then come straight home to work the next day... I'm going to die). But I'll see you all then, and I can't wait! Anyway, I got class to run to, but I'll see some of you this weekend probably :)

so i just read what jaye wrote...
yea, i know, i'm always slow with jelly pop.

anyway, what he said is so true. and what sarah said is so true. i always knew that we had an awesome staff, but i didn't realize how much it meant to me until i started working at another store that lacks what cherry hill has. you guys ARE so awesome and this past week has been kinda hard on me. i guess i'm a lot homesick.

and i know it takes time to build an awesome staff, but i wish i could bottle up what you have and bring it with me.
