I think I had something to say, but I lost it due to brainpain. Herp derp.

For the most part things are good. Home is always the best place to be for me. I've got family and I'm always so happy to be with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction.

As usual, work is work and drives me crazy most of the time. Cynthia is officially gone and I'm still feeling a little shellshocked or something. I think Sachiko will do okay as a manager, but I'm still having a debate as to whether I even want to be there anymore. I don't feel like I can safely ask for a raise and at this point I'm painfully aware that there's no room for advancement.

I'm trying to get more energy for RP, forcing myself to tag again even when I'm sleepy or just feeling a little meh. It's good though, I'm starting to have fun again and it's nice to feel like it's not the same source of stress that it kind of felt like it was for a while there. Not that I didn't enjoy myself most of the time, but sometimes I did wonder why I kept up with it. But again, it's nice to feel like I can be comfortable in playing and expanding horizons and all that. I need to continue to connect with people anyway, it's good for me.

And now...I don't think that I have anything else to add. Just thoughtful, I guess. Happy to be content save for the work issues.

I live, really.

Nothing much going on, just work and stuff and things.

Bossu waifu has been upgraded to preggobeast. I dread what's going to happen as she gets further along, but I'm hoping it at least means that she ends up taking some time off and giving everyone a chance to breathe.

I'm still trying to come up with something else to do, I just have days that I don't care about any of it anymore and I really do wish I had the ability to just walk out like so many other people have.

I have a few discontents here and there, some bouts with apathy that are mostly work and computer related, but they tend to pass.

[livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction really does help me through a lot of it and I'm really so grateful for it. She puts up with me and makes me feel better at the end of the day, I couldn't be happier about that.

dalekpatronus: (ALICE ✪ BROOOOOMAAAANCE)
So glad this week is over. Now just to see if I can feel better over the weekend now. It's been nausea and headaches and all manner of other things. Blah blah blah blah.

Finished the final touches to game stuff, so have an ad under the cut. If anyone is interested we're taking reserves and applications now, if you know someone that might be interested feel free to pass the advert along.



And have some pokemon too.

As usual I had a big post planned, but now I just don't want to.

My dad it getting just a little bit worse every time we turn around, his memory is really going and I'm waiting for the moment that it starts getting really scary. When I think about it I get this tension in my chest and I'm really not sure what I'm supposed to do or say. He's barely able to get around right now and stubborn as ever, I'm really afraid that I'm just going to get a call while I'm at work that something worse has happened to him.

Today was crappy in general, really, punishment pain was at a high. I spent the entire day at work trying not to vomit and at one point I had someone watch the desk just so I could go into the restroom and cry like a big baby. You know it's bad when I sit down on a dirty floor just to get a little bit of comfort. I know someone cleans in there all the time, but still the look of it...on a normal day I wouldn't walk in there without shoes. Work is work. There's always something to remind me why I really should start looking for somewhere else and just move on. Shitty management in general and I'm pretty sure I'm about to get penalized for a lost package that I didn't even misplace. Nevermind that the package arrived in fucking NOVEMBER and that cuntwhore Jocelyn is just now getting around to looking into it. Dumbass expects me to remember who took the damn box upstairs, but if they just got their shit together and kept it clean up there (like I was doing when I was helping up there) it wouldn't be missing in the first place. I'll be damned if I let them take a hundred some dollars out of my paycheck for something that wasn't my fault.

To add to frustration and pain, part of [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction's birthday present arrived completely wrecked. I was furious when it got here yesterday and called UPS to file a complaint. Spoke with them again today to do an inspection over the phone and then was told that they would contact Amazon and hopefully something would work out. Contacted Amazon too, just to cover all my bases and make sure that if I really needed to send it back for a replacement, I could. ONLY GUESS WHAT? They are completely sold out and don't know when they'll be getting more in. Once I hear back I guess I'll figure out where to go from there, it just pisses me off that it was the one thing I was sure I wanted to get her and now I might not be able to get another one in time.

On a more positive front, even with all the frustration at work I still know that when I come home I have someone wonderful to come home to. ❤ For all the shit I put up with lately, it all just doesn't matter until I have to go back in and deal with it again. She's so amazing, putting up with all my bitching and ragefits over stupid things. She made my birthday extra awesome too, which is just another reason that I'm so frustrated over this package fiasco. I just want to make things as wonderful for her as they were for me.

I've been playing Sims 2 quite a bit, which is probably more time consuming than it should be. Well, alternating between that and Black. I need to start connecting with people again, I've realized. Last weekend Toaster and I got back in touch and kind of caught up and it was really nice, now if I could just keep it up. :| I still have to watch more of Battlestar Galactica too, now that I think about it. Aaaaand, I think I quit writing now. I didn't feel like writing something huge, but I did anyway.

dalekpatronus: (MINION ✪ DEEEERP)
Ho hum, pig's bum.

I gave in and got myself a userhead. I couldn't resist the pirate.

Also, sometimes I just want to make a trufax section when I do entries. Starting now.


I judge people that solely come into the store to buy bottles of Crystal Palace or Importers vodka. I know it's terrible, but to me that's just the lowest of the low and a sign of true alcoholism. I'm not a vodka fan, but even I can tell a difference between cheap vodka and something more high end.

Also, something about work that I forgot, blah blah blah blah.

Yessss. This week is over.

I need to dye my hair tonight and possibly go get a hair cut tomorrow. We'll see how that ends up going.

I had something else I was planning on doing, but I can't really remember it at the moment.

I think maybe I was going to be lazy and do this post in the form of bullet points, but I could only come up with two things. And I'll do them anyway.

☆ A manager wears really inappropriate lipstick to work. There's no reason to wear WHORE RED when you're supposed to be management. Then again, I shouldn't be surprised since she pays 100+ dollars to have someone make her hair look like crap.

☆ I judge people that let their small children go out in public looking like they haven't bathed or had their hair combed in a week. There's no excuse for it.

And...something else, but I've lost it now.

dalekpatronus: (BOWIE ✪ SOB)

I will be so glad when chinese new year is over.

Today went by quickly enough, but by the time I was able to relax at home I just felt like I wanted to hit my head against the wall until I passed out.

Busy in the morning. Then the coolers went out and we had to take everything out of them (which meant eight shopping carts full of cheese and weird jarred fish from sweden). Then the building right across the walkway from our entrance (which they rent the space from us) had one of the pipes burst. Trucks were delayed from the weather and blah blah blah. People were calling in and late and buuuuuu. Just tomorrow and Friday and then I can relax for a couple of days. I think maybe I'd like to actually go and watch the dragon dance on Saturday, but we'll see how I feel about that when the time comes.

Had to switch out the cable boxes tonight for the den and my room, but the box in the den still doesn't seem to want to work. My mom is pissed about it and I'm so tired tonight I really don't feel like I can be arsed to care. When I called the second time to see if they would send a signal I did get a bad service/reception/technical difficulties message, so I wouldn't be surprised if that had a lot to do with the problems they were having today. My mom was freaking out over it because they plan on sending a tech to look at everything on Sunday but she's like WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITHOUT THE TV TO WATCH?!SDLKFJSDF. Not even considering that there's still two working televisions to watch in the house. :| Not to mention all the books she's been reading lately. She could just read a book and my dad could stay in bed and watch tv all day. PROBLEM SOLVED. OR MAYBE HOW ABOUT ALL THE MOVIES THERE ON THE BOOKSHELF? Idk, I think this is one of those I'M CRANKY SO I'M GOING TO COMPLAAAAAAIN WHEN I DON'T NEED TO.

I had too much caffeine today. I'm extra ragey. I think I'm done now.

I'm cold and my joints hurt. Maybe I'll take a shower after I'm done watching this dumb movie.

dalekpatronus: (AD ✪ Seriously?)
I wonder when people will learn that elementary school logic doesn't work when you're trying to return something. When I say you can return something and point out the various notices that say ALL SALES ARE FINAL, shoving it into my hand doesn't magically change my response.

Seriously, why all idiocy, consumers?

Tax refund has been acquired. I'm also getting paid tonight. My bank account will look awesome for a few days before I have to pay some stuff.

dalekpatronus: (POKEMON ✪ ~3~)

I seriously feel like I want to sleep for three days. It's dumb.

In other news I learned out to fold paper stars that pop up and are all...not flat papery. It's fun and I want to learn more origami/paper folding tricks.

Also cat fight old woman is also kind of unintentionally offensive at times. She's obnoxious in funny sort of way.

dalekpatronus: (FACILIER ✪ BOOM BABY)
Blah blah blah blah.

This week has gone by really fast, thankfully. Today was a gift shop day and tomorrow I'm pretty sure is a short day.

Managed to get my taxes halfway done. Federal is good news, state was a little disappointing. Not too disappointing, it really could have been worse I suppose.

Aaaaand, I can't think of what else I wanted to talk about. :|

dalekpatronus: (RYOKI ✪ hoho)
I had stuff to write about, but I'm feeling lazy now.

Work sucks. Probably need a new job at some point but that seems really difficult to achieve and the alternative could always be worse.

Hope everyone ended up having good holidays, Christmas here was awesome and new year's was even better. I'm certain the company helped and I'm really looking forward to what the rest of the year has in store for me. Last year had it's ups and downs, but ultimately I couldn't be happier with the way that things turned out.

School talk is coming up again, I do want to go back but it seems that saving money is just not happening for me right now. Something to think about in the future, at least.

I spent all day being cranky, but I'm feeling immensely better now. Getting the chance to rest and be with the person that means the most to me really did put a smile on my face. ❤

dalekpatronus: (VAMPS ✪ hoo boy)
So last week in an effort to stay a little warmer at night I switched the way that I set up my bed, moving my pillows down where I usually had my feet.

Since then I've been dreaming every night, some of them just a little wackier than others. Most of them I can't even remember, but last night was one of the more special ones. I dreamed that [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction and I were hanging out with a friend, I don't even remember who the friend was but that's not really important. She went off to do something else, so I took the opportunity to get snuggly on the couch because I could and I wanted to be comfortable and then this couple just comes at us out of nowhere.

All of a sudden this blond woman has a broken broomstick to my chest and she's trying to stake me, yelling over and over THIS EXPLAINS SO MUCH! XO Then it was less about me being gay and she was acting more like I was a vampire, so I wasn't quite sure why she was trying to stake me in the first place, but then it really did turn out that it was because I was so gay.

Anyway, after that she backed off and all of a sudden we were having to explain what happened to all these little black children what had happened. Even though I wasn't even really sure what was going on. And that's when I woke up because my manager was calling to 'remind' me about the meeting she had never told me we were having in the first place.

The day at work was mostly good, save for the creepy guys that made it a point to ask every single girl in the vicinity of the customer service desk what would be best to help with their sex lives. They were really something I could have done without. At least I managed to escape before they tried to get too personal with me, I thank god that my bladder decided it couldn't hold out any longer. Too bad they made Tanya feel like she had to huddle behind the desk to get away from them. It just made it more difficult because they were...polite in a creepy way? I don't even know how to explain it.

dalekpatronus: (HORRIBLE ✪ dsfdggffff)

That about sums up today. So damn insane at work, I don't remember it being like that last year. But then maybe I didn't have to work the Thanksgiving rush.

Now naptime. Maybe. If I can will myself to move from this chair.

I also need to dye pants tonight. Or tomorrow. Or maybe not at all since I already stretched them out again and the dye requires washing in hot water after. We'll see how lazy I am after I pass out.

Tomorrow is work and then family gathering. There better be beer there. Or else I'll be pissed.

dalekpatronus: (HIMYM ✪ GNB CARES)
Today I bought Hanukkah shortbread cookies at the request of my inner jew. They are delicious and shaped like awesome things. They were also cheap and I will probably buy more. Eighty nine cents for delicious cookies? IT DOESN'T GET BETTER THAN THAT.

Dinner was also fantastic MEAT AND POTATOES. YUM.

But I'm hungry again. I should fix that.

I managed to get a cardboard cut through my sweater. It was awesome, only not. I also remembered why I hate Fridays.

dalekpatronus: (LUSS ✪ superstar)
Sometimes when I'm working in the gift shop I feel like motherfuckin' MacGyver.

Today I used pair of scissors as a drill AND a wrench.

Last week I took apart a whole display by using a pair of tweezers.

Now I'm hungry. Time to forage.

dalekpatronus: (VAMPS ✪ OLE!)

Yes, this was the highlight of my day at work. I swear sometimes I live for tasteless humour.

Someone also called today and their name showed up as "TU MAMA" on the caller ID. I laughed heartily, mostly because I know it wasn't meant in that way.

I was so exhausted today, I'm really hoping it won't turn out like that again tomorrow. It took forever for me to fall asleep, even though I wasn't feeling well and I was ridiculously tired.

dalekpatronus: (HORRIBLE ✪ BALLS)
Guuuuh. It would be nice if I could stop coughing. It was fine most of the day and then just a little while ago it started up again with a vengeance. I'm trying the really lame mixture my mom suggested the other night, but it doesn't seem to be working so well this time around. Maybe I'll try an actual hot toddy or something to see if it soothes anything. At least it would taste better, based on the recipe I found.

Blah blah blah, stuff and things. I'm really sore tonight and I hate it, there's no reason for it.

Work was good, WanWan make the time go by faster toward the end with his nonstop talking. Not that it's a bad thing, but damn that boy is a motormouth sometimes.

I wish my mom wouldn't pick movies where the main theme is racial tension. They might be fantastic movies, but they just depress me. Though, it doesn't really make me want to watch when my mom wants to watch them but doesn't really pay attention. I shouldn't have to watch a movie I don't want to watch just to tell someone what people are saying. :|

dalekpatronus: (PSYCH ✪ hold up)

I'm so tired and it doesn't even make sense.

I think a nap is imminent, or at least passing out on the couch for a little bit so I don't get bitched at.

Speaking of which I was told by a seemingly crazy homeless looking lady that I was rude and that she had planned on buying hundreds of dollars worth of stuff until she dealt with me. I'm not sure how wanting to keep someone from running into a door is rude, but whatever. At one point I'm pretty sure she wanted to hit me and I told her he was being aggressive and that she needed to leave. She even went as far as to tell me that I was going to get fired for it. It was pretty awesome and the highlight of my work day.

Now...couch. :|

Maybe nachos later if we still have chips.

dalekpatronus: (MONSTER HIGH ✪ hide yo' face)
I seriously spent most of the day today cutting up paper bags and making long strips for the front of shelves. I never did finish, but I have three days to work on it next week. :| I do like that I got some recognition for all the effort I've been putting in back in the gift shop, that's always something nice. Makes me feel less like I'm doing it all for nothing.

Mildly annoyed at the lack of communication over decorating tomorrow. My mom can't give me/get a straight answer for when those people are supposed to be here tomorrow. My nephew doesn't know if his brother has practice or not tomorrow. I don't know if I'm supposed to pick him up or not. Blah blah blah blah.

Kinda pisses me off that this is something really important to me and no one else really seems to get that. ffs, we have people stop by and ask when we're going to decorate it's gotten so big. SO WHY DOES NO ONE ELSE CARE?

I think I may or may not come off as mildly crazy when I can't figure out what song lyrics come from. I mumble and even end up getting looks from my mother. :|

dalekpatronus: (VINCENT ✪ ❤?)

Finally motivated myself enough to fix up some images and swap them out for a halloween theme.

I need to remember to send a message to my nephews tomorrow to see when they might be available to decorate the yard too. Otherwise I'm going to tell my mom that she and I just need to do it ourselves. All I know is I'll be really upset if it doesn't get done before I leave on the 19th.

Speaking of which so far everything is fine at work, maybe all the reminders paid off. I was even offered a few extra hours next week, so that'll be good.

Tonight the goal is to play more Ocarina and put together a halloween themed playlist for work tomorrow. I have an energy drink to keep me alertish and I don't have to go to work until eleven, so that gives me time for both!

Yesssss, I feel awesome right now.
