mini work rant

Dear Asshole,

Thanks for stealing tips from me and my awesome coworker of win Stacey. Bonus point because one of those dollars? Yeah, Stacey put that in there to encourage tips. I'm sure your kid who was with you learned a valuable lesson today.


I really like my job (worlds better than Toys R Hell) but seriously people! I love coffee to a very high degree but there is no reason to get all up in my face about it. Although it really is hilarious to watch people struggle with our sizes. Because small, medium, and large are hard to deal with. But at the end of the day, 20 hours a week in this economy? I will happily put up with the bullshit. And every day is one more closer to the wedding!

Oh yeah, I need to plan a wedding. Fucking A!

harder meme than i thought

Alright. Leave a comment, you get a letter. Make a list of 10 things you love that start with that letter. I got R from chenry .

1. Rock n Roll
2. R.E.M.
3. Rain
4. Rainn Wilson
5. Romero (George)
6. Red Hot Chili Peppers
7. Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)
8. Renji Abarai (Bleach)
9. Reefer Madness the Musical
10. Rice

luckily two of my favorite characters from Bleach have R names. Well played chenry , this was tricky.


wedding planning leads to frustration...leads to killing loads of things on WoW....why oh why am i doing this again?

oh yeah....the love and stuff.

So, last night I had this dream where I run into Robert Pattinson (you know....the guy from the Twilight movie) at a coffee shop. I walked right up to him and told him he was a pretty good Cedric in the Harry Potter movie. He thanked me, then asked what I thought about him in Twilight. Dream-Self then proceeded to give him a lecture about how Stefenie Meyer is leading the down fall of both young adult fiction and vampire fiction. It actually turned into a discussion between Dream-Self and Dream-Robert had a lovely discussion about vampire mythos and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Really subconcious? This is what I get?

Craig and I saw Star Trek this weekend.  We took his dad, a long-time trekkie and also proof that geek-hood is a little bit genetic. We all enjoyed it, but I think that not being a TOS-fan myself let me enjoy some of the AU-ness more. Also, Sarah, I have to say that your entertaining journal entries on the movie helped me quite a bit. And give me faith in the movie. Between Sarah and Mum, also a trekkie, I knew it would be a good flick. Sure JJ Abrams can be a bit....JJ Abramsey but I think his visual style worked with the film. It also helps that I've been watching some Lost with Mum Well, not so much watching, really I happen to be in the same room while she watches and yells at the characters.

Well that is it for now. It feels nice to dust off the ol' virtual journal.

because everyone else is showing off...Collapse )


</div>Clearly I need to watch more movies!
Sometimes after a sucktastic day of work, nothing relieves the stress better than blasting loud music on the drive home.

Today it was Coheed & Cambria.

Welcome Home
and Once Upon Your Dead Body and particularly nice the scream/sing along with to get the anger out.

Also, now I have the desire to make my own Ten Speed. There aren't any practical uses for a demonic bike, but that just makes it more intriguing.

Comment on this post and i will choose seven interests from your profile. You will then explain what they mean/why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

(got from Sarah)

COSTUME TECHNOLOGY: Part of my (hopefully) future profession. I love what I can do to fabric with enough time and the right tools. Spray paint, razor blades, dye, fake blood, ect. And now that I have a sewing machine of my very own (thanks Craig love!), I can have more experiment time with construction. When I get really good at construction, I'm hoping I can start making things for other people, and that they pay me. That would rock.

I loves duct tape. And gaff tape. Those two tapes are all the tape I need in like. I love how duct tape comes in so many fun colors, and I'd really love to work it into a costume somehow. Not like I'm going to wear a wedding dress out of the stuff. Something more like...I don't know. Shakespeare. Shakespeare needs more duct tape.

She was a costume designer of great talent and importance. She was nominated for 35 Academy Awards, won 8 (making her honored more than more than any other woman EVER), and was all around awesome. She did so many classic movies, see link . You know the costume designer in The Incredibles? She's based on Edith Head. She is a huge inspiration to me as a costumer. All female costume designers, especially in Hollywood, have Edith Head to thank for their careers.

Nerd Fighters are made of awesome. Its a term worked into my vocabulary by John and Hank Green, brothers who started the vlogbrothers youtube channel. They spent a year communicating with vlogs on youtube. Hilarious vlogs. John is an award-winning writer of young adult fiction, Hank is a huge eco-geek. Nerd fighters is a term for nerds who fight against non-nerds. It's a fun series of vlogs and fun little geekocity. Makes me laugh.

Bravo's hit fashion designer in the making. I know it's reality tv and all, but I can't help but love it. The bitches and criers and the drama, I can't help it. Some of the challenges get really fun and some of the coture-esqe challenges are way fun to watch. I even have a group of friends who I watch it with, so I think that ads to my enjoyment.

A Canadian television show that lasted three seasons (Hamlet, Macbeth, and King Lear) about a theatre company. My mum introduced us to it, and no Craig and I are obsessed with it. It's such an accurate portrayal of theatre and theatre people and the productions that get performed at the end are mind blowing. Some of the best acting I've ever seen. I watch episodes of it when I need to renew my faith in theatre.

Best. shoes. ever. Well, for sneakers anyway. Doc Martens makes the best boots. And everything else is girly and you'll have to ask a girly girl about that. In five years I have owned like....7 pairs. And it's not that they fall apart, they don't. It's that they keep coming out with awesome styles! My killer-bee slip ons remind me of the year in college when I started to find myself. My newest men's plaid sneakers are perfect for long periods of walking. Vans is the only brand loyalty I really have,


if you ever need work done at a copy and print center, here's a politeness tip. don't stand behind your section of the counter and watch the people working on your order. and especially don't talk about the people working on your order while you watch. we are not zoo monkeys, it does nothing to help with quality, it just makes us want to cut you and set your order on fire.

i don't care if you are some old lady who probably makes great cookies and gives $20s on birthdays. you're annoying. go sit down, we have stools in self serve for a reason.
