So a certain movie finally got finished and released (albeit only in certain cities)...   
07:00pm 28/11/2009
  ...and through some miracle of fate, the one theater in Wichita showing it is the closest megaplex to my house.

*fannish glee*

Three guesses what I just got back from watching. (And I'm only going to ignore three pieces of canon if I add it to my RP timeline.)

Random unbetaed unplanned writing alert.

  Fair warnings - Weird format, even for me. Second person, no names or dialogue, and I haven't really written fic in nine years.

This'll make more sense if you watched White Collar last night. Maybe.Collapse )

Like I said. Weird, but it wanted to be written.

  Yeah, I know. Epic fail on keeping up with any commentaries. I can only plead stress, lack of time, and the inability to say what I want to if I have to think it out after the fact.

Not a SPN icon, but most likely will be fitting.Collapse )

So apparently, some customer claimed I refused to change his order a few nights ago, stormed in the next day to demand my name from management, and called customer service to complain.

End result - unemployed, once again. Right after I went ahead and ordered the tickets for this, too.

Oddly enough, the last time I was fired? I was still saving up for The Gathering of the Fellowship in Toronto. It's like there's some conspiracy trying to keep me stuck in Kansas.

  Okay y'all, I'm going to try typing this out as I watch. No promises on how well this'll work, mind you - last time I tried this was the '02-'03 season of 24, and that didn't go so well....

Don't read if you don't want spoiled - I mean it!Collapse )

I got a haircut yesterday. Walked in, told the stylist to cut it as short as it'd go without becoming a buzzcut, and almost had a panic attack at my first look at the work in progress (I remember thinking 'all I need now is a lightning shaped scar'). Turned out good, though.

Granted, I have gone from just-past-shoulder length to the shortest it's been since I was a baby, but from everyone's reactions, you'd think it was the most important thing to have happened ever.

  Good news - Transfer went through this week. Co-workers and managers who treat me like a person, not a braindead screwup. Also am allowed to wear my mp3 player during my shift. *grins*

(Slightly) bad news - Seems I'm working six days a week now, rather than the four a week at the previous location. Good for my bank account. Not so good for having much of a life outside th' job, though.

Ah, well.

I hate my workplace.

My managers have, so far:

-told me several things about my job that I have later been informed "No, that's not how you do that."
-assured me that the important paperwork for SSI I needed them to fill out by a certain date would be taken care of, when in fact, it wasn't.
-insisted that I was mad about something when I wasn't (though I get this from quite a few people, for some unknown reason).
-this week's schedule (which normally goes up Wed. morning/afternoon) was apparently posted sometime late Friday. After 2 in the afternoon, because that's when I went in find out what happened with the SSI paperwork. They still had last week's up, and silly me, I neglected to check the dates as well as the times. End result, I didn't work Friday night even though I was suppose to. (The only reason I was not called about this, they said, was because it wound up being a far slower night than normal.)
-and in general, made me feel like a useless fucking cunt who can't do a single goddamned thing right, no matter how hard I try.

I'm checking about transferring to the other store (smaller and a bit farther from home, but the people there are are easier to get along with), but I'd have to switch from full-time third shift to part-time second and third shifts. Provided the part-time is more than 20 hours a week and I can keep my insurance, I'm going to go for it.

...then again, too many more nights like these and I'll go for it regardless.

KazCon - where "Scientific zombies? Good question." is an acceptible conversation.

  So as I said in my voice post Thursday, we're in Lawrence at the moment. (On a side note, I'll be switching off the auto-transcribe when I get home.) What I hadn't seen the first time we came in the hotel was the business center and its two net-connected computers. So I'll try for typed updates from hereon.

It's a small con - sixty attendees, I think someone said, and only two guys. Met agt_spooky at lunch, and the_other_sandy is updating her LJ next to me.

Still fun, though. We drove out to the Old Stull Cemetary earlier, and just finished up the vid premiere/contest a little while ago... though due to Windows being its usual piece of shite self we didn't get to see all of the sample vids from the indiviuals who've offered their talents for the Sunday auction.

Gotta run, but I'll try to post a clearer version of things later on.

“So, greetings from Laurence, Kansas. Mom and I managed to make it up here in one piece, surprise, surprise... and we got to the hotel and apparently we beat everyone - including the organizers. So, currently, we are at Wal-Mart, getting Mom a cheapo on-sale swim suit just in case we manage to snag a little extra time for ourselves. What the hell. And if anything else happens exciting, I'll let y'all know. Catch you later.”

My computer had a massive meltdown yesterday.

So massive, in fact, that the techies at the shop could not recover anything from my hard drive.

Which means I have to start trying to remember all my passwords, contact a few people to see if they've still got copies of chat/email conversations regarding various plots/plans, and figure out what Dad did with the disk for the ethernet setup so I can try to get back up to my previous working standpoint.

Change of Plans

Was about to call it a night back around midnight when Mum came in my room, no warning, and stated we were heading down to Bartlesville. Seems Neechan's boyfriend fucked up, fucked off, and sent her into a nervous breakdown.

So here we are, for maybe a couple of days. Further details as I get them.

So what do you do if you've got a week off from work?

Appearently, if you're me, you go out and get your first tattoo.

Celtic knotwork, just above and around my right ankle. Outline only at the moment, as I'm still deciding on color(s).

Only took me seven years to go out and do it. Think it'll take me another seven to finish the job?

  Turning 28 tomorrow.

So the gameplan for tonight is to take a shower, play online for a bit, head down to the RiverFest by 8 for a concert, pick Mum up at her job around 10 so we can drive down to Bartlesville and crash at Neechan's for what'll be left of the night, then finish the drive to The Castle of Muskogee in the morning.

Should be back home sometime Sunday, depending on if we want to try and spend the entire weekend down there.
