The thing about a microblog like Plurk or Twitter is that they make posting whatever inane stupid nonsense that pops into my head into the kind of casual affair that Livejournal just can't match.

Which i guess is my roundabout way of saying I know I haven't been around all that much. And also that I'm sorry about it. I've been preoccupied by things.

One of those things is work, where I am totally getting trained on the desk. Friggin' FINALLY, I've been there, what, four years? Thank goodness I'm also getting a raise! That takes the sting out of the wait, if just a bit. I still dunno if I want another job though, but I might as well stick this one out.

And also school things are happening! Namely two lit classes (Shakespeare and American to the Civil War), one math class, and one aerobics class are happening. I am pretty much psyched for all of this except I haven't read anything more complex then a tag in an age and a half. It's difficult going from Homestuck to the Bard, and let's just leave it at that.

Game things are also in play, although really, it's more video then roleplaying nowadays (my current Thing about roleplaying is a whole 'nother entry in-and-of itself, so I'll leave it for now). Dragon Age in particular has me...ensnared, I think is the word. I've eaten this lore for breakfast, and flossed my teeth with it's characters. The fate of Ferelden is my plaything, I am the Warden, and I make the rules.

No, seriously. Every single important thing that's happened since the first fight has been my character's decision. I know, I know, Player has to do everything or it's not fun but jeeze, nothing ever gets decided around here without some wandering elven schmuck sticking his skinny nose in everything. I like it. I'm the arbiter of everything, speaking through a sheltered sad-sack of a homeless elf bum.

I think that must say a lot about me. All I know is that I really want someone to geek out about this series with, like I can not even express.

Err, I have nothing else to say right now, which is good, because I should really get to bed.

I guess I'm due for some sort of life update, ain't I? I've been away for a while, so I guess I have to work hard to make you all sick of me again.

Sorry Carol I am a format thief )

I think...I started this, left it to go to work, came back and forgot what the hell else I was going to talk about. I end more then a few of my entries this way, so I don't suppose it matters any, really.

Um, well, I forgot to mention this but I went up to Blackhawk yesterday and stayed the night.

I took 100 dollars to gamble with, lost it all, won it all back, and lost it all again.

Physically I am worn out and I STILL have to go to work today and have eaten nothing but junk food all yesterday and today and am in kind of a salt/fat coma and will probably come home tonight and collapse in the front door sound asleep.

Mentally though, I feel loads better then I have in about a month. My low is gone, albeit replaced with a much better low, a kind of low that doesn't make me feel depressed or angry with myself as I was. And creativity-wise I feel so much less stagnant.

I could probably go back to roleplaying with any kind of regularity too. And stop writing bitchy things about it that would make only me laugh if I posted them anywhere. Bitter laughter too.

So there's something to be said for treating yourself, I guess.

I guess it's work time now. Pooh. Oh well. I'll get a good nights sleep tonight and be able to face the world full force tomorrow.

Putting this layout on trial. I like how it looks, but I'm not sure how functional it is quite yet.

So, I pretty much spent all of today playing video games and watching TV. I watched Soultaker from my new MST3K box set (yay!), finally broke down and watched Hetalia (eeeehhh…), rented Marble Madness (awwww!), played some more WarioWare DIY (hmmm), tried out The Path (bleh), got to the final boss in Beyond Good and Evil (auuuuuugh), and plan to play some Pokemon before bed (finally).

I haven't looked at my grades because I want to ride high for at least the rest of the week. I'm…pretty sure I did poorly in Biology, but I'm not sure if it was "failing" poorly. And I have actually NO idea how my Tech Writing went. At least I got an A in Western Civ.

Next week is my sister's graduation from high school. The ceremony is at nine at night, apparently in a bid to find the most insane time to hold a graduation ceremony. I'm not sure if she's planning a party or not but I do know that she's taking some friends up to Estes park for a two-day camping trip. So that should be fun for her, and make the house quiet for me.

I'm going to spend some effort at work on Saturday looking for something new to read in the fiction area. Anybody read anything good lately?

the POKEMON TYPE meme


Dear work: If I am doing something that is not procedure and could, in fact, hurt my back and shoulders, it's really great if you don't wait until two years after I start working there to tell me.

Thanks.

I know that the rival is there to test how strong your Pokemon are, but it really feels like a punishment when you run into him just because you walked too near a city gate.

The only reason I won was because my Beedrill fucked his Bayleef up (Which I really wasn't expecting because my Beedrill is lagging behind everyone else training wise.) Plus I'm still at that part of the game where "putting together a team" means "scraping a team from whatever dregs the game wants to give you."

It wasn't a fun surprise, that's all I'm saying.

If I had a fire type...

ANYWAY, the schools were closed because of snow, but the libraries aren't (???) so if I can get out of the driveway, I'm going to work. It kind of...really sucks.

OH WELL, back to training and I'll probably do homework today too. EXCITING LIFE, I LEAD IT.

ETA: OH OH OH And Sam and Max season 2 finally came! And it lags more on the Wii port then the first one did! Throw us a fucking bone, Telltale!

It's still really funny though...

I want to do that character meme, but my hands are killing me and I'm pissed off about work, so not tonight. Tomorrow.

Let me just say, though, that I hate the fact that most adults think they don't have to clean up after themselves or put things away or push chairs in because I don't even know why. Add to that the fact that my co-worker never showed up to help me out and I could go on for pages if my joints weren't seizing up.

1, is that I don't feel well at all.

2, is that I am far more hooked on VDex then I expected to be, but I've hated all the partners I've chosen so far. Fourth times a charm?

and 3, is that I would like to rant about work, which I imagine is dull for anyone who isn't me, and some people who are. Ergo, a cut for easy skippage.

You're boring, rambling TL:DR is here! Huzzah! )

Well, I feel better now that I've ranted a bit. Emotionally, but not physically. I think this year calls for the changing of the diet, cause I can't think of anything else that would make me feel this queasy.

Whoooooooo's icons are terrible?

[livejournal.com profile] fools_fly_in~!

Recent RP ideas inspired me to finally kit out at least one of my OCs with actual icons. They look...OK. They work for what I need them for, at least.

I'M JUST NEVER HAPPY WITH THE ICONS I DRAW MYSELF, OK?

Thanksgiving was fun! My aunt came down and we took picture for the passport she wants to give me and we ate far too much! But goddammit I don't want my Thanksgiving break to end! Because after Thanksgiving comes the end of the school year and boy do I not want to go back. It's bad enough that I have to go to work tomorrow, which is going to be SUCKY busy with the holiday closure and work-study people gone.

Oh well, I'll just go and complain the whole time, which is my favorite thing to do at work.

the ~mirror-me~ meme


Meme's is fun things.

And now for an edition of Scary Thoughts Thunk at Work:

*sniff sniff* Yeesh, someone smells like a goat farm.

Wait...I'm the only one in the room.

Oh god, do
I smell like the goat farm?

It didn't turn out to be me, but geeze that was a scare. I've come into work looking less then stellar before, but I'd like to think my hygiene is at least good enough that I don't stink like goats I haven't been around.

After work, I ate lunch with my dad at this new authentic British Fish and Chips place that sprung up a few mounths ago. Great fish, passable, if bland, fries, and a bowl of peas that tasted exactly like cigar smoke smells. I...don't know how you make peas like that, but it was a bad surprise.

Roleplay news: I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things once and for all after this weekend, which I am going to use to finish at least most of my school work. I...kind of want to app Nanny Ogg from Discworld somewhere, and I keep looking at [livejournal.com profile] mayfield_rpg, but I don't know. We'll see.

I went into Gamestop today to see if they had Let's Tap and I walked out with Persona 4 as well. That's pretty cool, as I've wanted to try it for awhile. I'll probably get a start on it tomorrow. And let's hope I don't suck as terribly as I usually do at RPGs.

I have to train some of the new people at work tonight. Oh god, that's going to...really be kind of irritating. I know they're new and can't be expected to know everything, but they do tend to do things that really grind gears for the older employees (ordering carts of books at the end of their shifts so they get left for other people to put away, leaving media carts to take up space, shelving the paperbacks when we save them for the volunteers...stuff like that).

I'm going to start setting up a new roleplay here in the next...I dunno, few months? Don't know if I have enough time/energy to run it right at the moment, but I'm going to spend at least half hour a day or so working on it. I've got something going that I think won't be too serious but have equal parts premise and plot, and it's coming together pretty nicely.

Yeah, I'm in that kind of giddy "man I think I have a cool idea that could be really cool" euphoria. I haven't felt that in a while. It's fun.

I went through the whole work day yesterday thinking I was going to throw up and/or pass out the whole time. That was fun, so much so I want to excise the memory, with a power drill if necessary.

And then today I woke up with the phrase "Roleplay A-Go-Go" running through my head. That idea might need some poking at later, after I get home from school.

Ah, it's finally a real school year for me. You know how I know? I forgot an assignment. Not just any assignment, but a three page paper on whether or not World War II would've started without Hitler.

Three page papers aren't really all that hard, but they sure seem that way when you remember them at 11:00 at night just before you're about to fall asleep. That's the best way to remember an assignment; When you don't know if you have the mental capacity to write a sentence, let alone three pages.

I knew I'd do it eventually, so at least it's out of the way. Not to say I won't do it again at some point, but I always do it at least once.

I spent the rest of the morning after class getting my car taken car of (fill-up and oil change). It was actually a nice day, though I'm really kind of not looking forward to going to work tonight. It's just...going to be a long night tonight.

I think the elevator at work is trying to kill me.

First it tried to crush me in it's doors. Now it tried to take off my leg.

It's cursed. I swear, it's cursed.

My boss called today asking if I could sub Thursday for a girl who broke her foot. She said that I was the first person she thought of, and while I'm not certain if I believe that, I'm going to take that as confirmation that she doesn't hate me. She may be insane and terrifying, but she doesn't hate me and think I'm a crap shelver.

Good to know.

I checked out The Malcontents, which is this huge-ass tome of classic satire. I AM SO HIGHBROW YOU GUYS. SO. HIGHBROW. MORE HIGHBROWER THEN YOU. Anyway, I am not at all. It's actually been kind of tough to get into, but I haven't really set aside any real reading time lately, so I probably will once I do.

I wish I knew why the sleep I'm getting hasn't been making me feel like I, you know, got any sleep. I've been in this place where I get up, have a sliver energy for an hour, then crash right back down again. Hurr, probably my diet messing up my hormones. I haven't been eating all that well lately, admittedly.

I had some RP stuff to rant/talk about, but I don't feel like it right now so I'll save it.

Today, I took Um Jammer Lammy in to the local game store to be fixed (but it still skips dammit >B[) and lo and behold, I found Megaman X4! Which is way better then X7! (To be fair, I saw it three or so days earlier, but the price tag was over the number and I hadn't heard anything about Megaman X9.99.) But, yeah, despite the goofy-as-all-hell cutscenes, it is kicking all sorts of ass. I'm kind of stuck because I still can't find my memory card and I don't want to get too far into it until then.

And I played Overlord all day anyway.

I found my cellphone! I'll do that voicepost meme right after I finish this. ETA: It isn't letting the call through, which is irritating. I'll try again later.

I feel...slightly better about roleplaying. To the point where I don't want to drop from everything ever, but I still don't feel like jumping back in just yet.

Work tomorrow is going to suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. The backup of library crap to do after a holiday weekend always suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

...Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

At what point in adulthood do people start thinking it's OK to not clean up after themselves?

I'm serious. When I do the closing shift in the children's section, it takes me a half-hour tops. When I close for the adult section, it's always an hour and a half, sometimes more.

Most of the kids take their books to the little carts like they're there for. Most of the adults just dump their crap on whatever table is closest and leave.

And then I have to go on this scavenger hunt to each and every table and find everything that everyone has left everywhere and put it all away, because I get a reprimand if I don't.

I don't know...I'm just sort of irritated at everything right now and this has got my hackles all up in a dander. I'm gonna go sleep, like, for a day. See if that fixes anything.

List 10 of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, and if they're so inclined, to draw conclusions about you based on the patterns they've spotted.

Yeah, OK. My "favorite characters" change, like, a million times a second so I dunno what you're going to learn. Actual change time may vary

Mother - Claus
Klonoa - Klonoa
SGT Frog - Dororo
Sonic the Hedgehog - Tails
Discworld - Detritus
Parappa - Parappa
Okami - Waka
Red Green Show - Mike Hammer
Mario - Yoshi
MST3K - Tom Servo

Uuuugh, I woke up an hour before the alarm was supposed to go off for work and now I am really sleepy and shit. And it sucks a lot.

ETA: Random, but I think I want to host one of those big-ass all-of-LJ memes, but I have how you're supposed to go about that. Do you, like, just post it and hope people post back or is there some kind of advertising or what?

I.

HAVE NEVER.

SEEN THAT MUCH CANDY.

IN ALL MY LIFE.

I swear I come into the break room to put my crap away and there are SIX 3 lb bags of candy. Six! And when I go to sign in the basket for pens is just FULL OF CANDY. And then I go to up to my work area and I'll be damned if there weren't 3. MORE. BAGS. 3 lbs each!

That is 27 lbs of candy! Good god, just when I decided to go on a diet arrrgh. It's going to be there all week because not even a staff as big as ours can finish off 27 lbs of candy in anything less. To top it all off, it's the good stuff. You know what I mean, the good stuff?

And then some idiot dragged this big chair into the asile to look at the books? Yeah, I don't know but I had to carry it back and I think I pulled my shoulder doing that because it hurts like a mother.
