Sometimes, I don't know what's wrong with me.

So, I have this odd mega-crush on Martin Sheen. He is, like, 40 years my senior, but I find him sexy. More like 10 years ago and when he was younger.

That's not weird, is it?

Also, personally, I disagree with just about everything he stands for politically, but I admire his conviction.

Plus, he's hot. Really, that's all that matters. He can also sing.

So, some background. I was in training all day yesterday for how to conduct a Root Cause investigation. I come back and my monitor is flipped sideways, my chair arms are at different levels and my chair back is set to ultra stiff.

I immediately knew who did it - David. So I turned to him and said, "You messed up my stuff." And he's like, "That's only because you messed up my chair and monitor!"

And I was like, "No I didn't. Maybe I have in the past, but I didn't do it today." (And I hadn't done it that day, lol - but I found out who did the next day. It was a girl named Lisa.)

And he's like, "I have two witnesses who saw you."

So I called him on that because one of the witnesses he said was Michelle, and she would never sell me out anyway, even if I had done it.

But he acted like he knew and insisted it was me, and it totally wasn't. So I was starting to get pissed. I told him I didn't do it over and over. Usually when I do mess with his desk, I just smile and say, "I dunno." But I was flat out telling him I didn't do it and he wouldn't believe me.

So at the end of the day, just before it's time to go, he gets up and leaves his desk unattended. Of course, I take the opportunity to shut down his computer and flip his monitor sideways, but I leave a note, "David - I didn't do it the first time, but as long as I'm getting blamed...."

I come in this morning to find that he has stabbed my sucker with my pen and left the note I wrote beside it. It took me 5 minutes to take apart my pen and clean out the candy that got stuck in it.

It's on.

When he came in this morning, I warned him that he had started a war he wouldn't win. He said he wasn't scared. So he leaves his desk and I unplugged his cell phone and stuff it in his pen holder, with firm warnings to my podmates to say nothing. A few minutes later, he comes back and offers a truce, which I accept (war crimes committed before the truce have not been resolved yet and I feel no obligation to tell him about what I had done to his phone). He doesn't notice that it is missing right away.

We work away for awhile...Collapse )

He still doesn’t know.
Sometimes, work is fun. :)

A conversation with my niece...

It's tradition that every Sunday we have Sunday brunch (bacon, eggs, toast, coffee, sausage) at my house with family. Today it was me, my parents, my brother, his wife, his son (Brady, who is going to be 3 next month), and his daughter, Paige, who is six.

So she's sitting on my lap this morning and we're doing a craft project, and she asks me, "Are you a teenager?"


"Well, how old are you?"

"Thirty-three soon. I'm old."

Paige gets this very distressed look on her face and says to me, "Older than mommy and you don't even have a boyfriend!" This is scandalous.

"I know!"

"You have to get a boyfriend TODAY!"

I tell her I will and she is appeased and declares that she will be the flower girl in my wedding. OMG!

I didn't tell her that I have no plans to ever be married. I don't have that desire at all, but I didn't have the heart to disillusion my six-year-old niece. I wonder who taught her that girls should have boyfriends/be married by a certain age? Hmm....

Gainfully (sorta) employed through science... I guess

So, I started a new job last week. It is a corporate job, 8-5 (and way to get my hopes up for a 9-5, Dolly Parton, you lying liar!), Monday-Friday, weekends off, 2 weeks paid vacation. It is glorious.

Sure, the pay is complete shit and I googled the salary for my position and this area is about $20,000+ under the average, so that blows. And it's not a laboratory, which is where I envisioned myself.

BUT... it is not valet, it is not the casino, it is not third shift, it is not waking up at 4 in the morning (and sometimes 3) and never getting two days in a row off because your place of employment is open 24/7/365. And it is where all my friends and family are. Like, all of them.

AND... it uses my education! (At least, I think it will. I still don't have access to all the programs I need to actually DO my job, but I am sure it requires knowledge that I have gleaned in college classes).

So what do I do? Well, it's kind of hard to explain. After hearing a long, drawn out, rambling kind of sorta explanation, my friend Wen dubbed it, "scientific paperwork". So that sums it up well.

And I am so fucking much happier having a regular schedule with regular days off that, despite the poor pay, will utilize an education that I worked hard for, I cannot tell you. Yay. I have learned that I am not a seat-of-the pants, go-with-the-flow kind of person that jobs with irregular hours require. I need stability to be happy. And I need to feel that I went to school for a reason; that it wasn't all wasted. So go corporate job, woo!

Who knew I'd like being a corporate tool? Yay, tools!

Two too much?

I'm thinking of going back to school for a 2nd bachelor's degree. Normally, one would go on to grad school and further their education in the same field they received their bachelor's degree in. However, I don't have the grades to go to grad school, and I can't find a job in my field with anything less than a Master's, but more like a PhD.

So, I'm thinking of changing my potential career track by getting another bachelors in a different field. Is this strange?

So, I graduated last year with a B.S. in Biology. I live in Michigan and so... I have been unemployed for just over a year now. The thing is, ALL of my family and friends live here. I am not moving.

I have been rejected by everyone, from Dow Corning and Dow Chemical, to freaking Evergreen Solar and local hospitals. It is very discouraging.

The only upside to this is that I have a lot of time to play golf. At the beginning of last year, Missy and I were scoring in the 60s through 9 holes of golf. At the end of last year we were scoring in the 50s. Now, we are consistently in the 40s.

If I keep this improving trend up, maybe I can qualify for the Tour and never have to get a real job. *sigh*

I would like to be paid, though, or I will not be able to keep my golf habit up. It is a conundrum.

Please let's forget the past, before I kick your...

So, Missy and I went to see Elvis On Tour in the theater tonight. We drove an hour and a half to get there. On the way there I bet her there wouldn't be more than 15 people in the theater. She said 50. There were, like, 100. WTF?! Good thing we didn't bet anything but words.

Also, it was $3.00 more than a normal movie! This thing was made in 1972, so it's almost 40 years old. We should have gotten a discount!

But whatever, it was pretty cool to see Elvis on the big screen. If only we didn't have to sit through the endless preview/documentary/whatever that crap was beforehand. Ah, well. A unique experience and I'm glad I went - even though the "remastered" sound and video wasn't at all.

Elvis still rules.

I don't get it

So I have this fandom pet peeve.

WHY...oh WHY do people bitch about certain authors and the way they write their stories? I mean, not as part of a discussion, but randomly bitching about it in a public forum. If someone writes in a way you don't appreciate, why bother even blabbing about it all over some community? What's the point?

Just don't read it! Don't like that author because they write only Saint Vin? Great, don't read, don't comment. Don't like this author because their technique is crap? Don't read, don't comment.

What good does whining about it accomplish, especially in a thread that has NOTHING TO DO with whatever they are whining about?

Didn't their mother teach them that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all?

Ah, the intarwebs.
