Tuesday has redeemed itself!!!!!
(and here’s your context, from the episode “Qikiqtarjuaq” - which I have now quoted so many damn times, I can spell Qikiqtarjuaq perfectly. Every. Single. Time.)
NANCY DEAN LIEBHART: It wouldn’t have mattered anyway; I’ve seen your website.
ARTHUR: Oh, have you? Brilliant! You see, Mum, I told you people would go!
NANCY DEAN LIEBHART: Ohhh, you did that, did you?
ARTHUR: Thank you!
NANCY DEAN LIEBHART: Are you a professional web designer?
ARTHUR: No, not even a bit! But there’s this website that makes it really simple, even if you’re completely clueless, you can make it play music, and the words flash, and, you know, put in things like a line of dancing aeroplanes – you know, make it look, make it look really professional.
NANCY DEAN LIEBHART: Okaaay, Ms. Knapp-Shappey, I’m going to ask you and your crew from now on at all times to refer to this flight as being an Unbeaten Track flight, not an MJN one.
CAROLYN: Why? It is an MJN flight.
NANCY DEAN LIEBHART: Yes, but my concern is that travellers may Google you on their return and discover, no offense, what sort of outfit you are.
CAROLYN: When you say “no offense,” do you in fact know what that means?
everyone knows jensen ackles is the princess of tumblr
Once again, that line is DIRECTLY from the show. Yep. Cracktastic.
Yesterday was written off because of the headache, so I’m trying to hit the ground running today.
It’s weird because I normally take Tuesdays off from the job search. Otherwise, I get depressed when there’s not a lot of new jobs to apply for. Skipping Tuesday normally means that Wednesday is really productive. I like productive days.
But - so far today, I’ve tried to fill out my unemployment claim in Spanish (Je parle français, mais pas couramment.) and I’ve tried to drink from my stapler. I’ve also jumped off the couch and spilled my coffee all over myself when Brown rang the doorbell to announce the arrival of the much needed dog food.
Jimmy the Pimp’s well has run dry. I haven’t heard back from Tony the Pimp about the cost job. And I’m so desperate, I’m interviewing in NEEDHAM. NEEDHAM! (Je suis très stupide.)
About the only thing going in my favour today is that my Cabin Pressure fan fic is going well. I’m almost ready to print it out and edit the hell out of it. Almost. It’s going a lot faster than my Johnlock did, which is both nice and scary. Oh well, editing will take take of the scary. I hope.
And knitting’s tonight - so I get to see people who aren’t at day care, not my husband, and not my personal trainer - so there’s that.
Today will redeem itself, or it will get kicked squarely in the nuts.
incestuous gay fanfiction, anyone?
Had a really bad night.
Jimmy the Pimp called when I was on the way to my workout.
Sig Fucking Sauer is STILL hiring for kick-ass accounting positions.
If I could just suck it up and sell my soul, I’d have a job a half hour from home in the income tax free state of New Hamster.
But instead, I just scheduled an interview at a huge telecom company in NEEDHAM, MA.
Look it up on Mapquest, sparky.
The beautiful town of Needham is - straight highway, no traffic - an hour and fifteen minutes from my little home in the shadow of The Nuke.
Let’s do the math, shall we?
The Shadow of the Nuke + straight trip down 95 - Boston traffic = 1.25 hours commute
I have people in the city proper chucking my resume into the bin because they’re worried about my commute.
This commute is going to be much worse.
I’m starting to wonder if he even looked at my resume…
the best part of this show is that even the fans are on crack
I wish my drug dealer could explain to me why I go through TERRIBLE withdrawal when I take my happy pill late (or not at all). I slept in way too late this morning, and took my pills about three hours later than I used to when I worked. Normally, I’m only an hour late, but lately, I don’t give a fuck.
The only problem with not giving a fuck is that within a few hours, I do find myself giving a fuck.
A HUGE fuck.
The headache. The nausea. The sensitivity to light. It’s like a migraine, but it’s not. It’s a direct correlation of cause and effect, so I know it’s not a migraine. Luckily enough, OTC migraine meds do a decent job.
However, they haven’t taken the edge off yet, so I just want to curl up in a ball and die.
Taking today off the job search to do just that…
I was going through a bunch of photos this morning, looking for a few specific ones, and they’re not where they belong.
I had no ideas that pictures could up and walk away.
However, I found several family pictures that I didn’t know my mother took. I know she took them - outside of the obvious fact that she’s not in them - because of her fingers. I don’t know how many pictures I have of her fingers, but there are a lot of them. A metric shit ton of them.
Thankfully, the horrible photographer gene was not part of the genetic package she handed down.
I suppose it goes without saying that I’d rather have that than the bipolar.
Rewatching the remake of ‘Fright Night’ because David Tennant! And Anton Yelchin! I learned on tumblr that that’s the kid from the Star Trek reboot. I obviously don’t pay enough attention to movies when I watch them at home.
(The more time I spend on tumblr, the worse I get… I actually texted someone “Because fuck you. That’s why.” A perfectly sound response in that world. Not so much over here in the growed up/real world. My spelling is also getting worse. I! NEED! A! JOB!)
(Also, while I’m speaking parenthetically about my newfound terrible grammar, I’d also like to apologize - AGAIN - to my British friends. Writing fan fic based on British radio and tv programmes is killing both my spelling and my vocabulary and my pronunciation. If we should ever cross paths in public again, I promise I’ll try to sound like an American instead of a jackass.)
Really bad insomnia last night led to this Facebook status:
The best part of being the only one awake? Getting to listen to J and Guinness. J’s mumbling something and Guinness is barking in his sleep. Could you imagine what those two are talking about?
G: BUNNIES! SQUIRREL! BUNNIES! BUNNIES!!!
J: Guinness, stawp it.
G: DAYCARE!! DAYCARE!!! SQUIRREL!!!
J: Guinness, shut up.
G: KITTY! BUNNY! SQUIRREL! DAYCARE!
J: Guinness, shut up. Now.
I love those guys. They’re always good for some comic relief.
stormageddon wishes you a happy not mum’s day!
I hate Facebook on holidays.
Especially holidays banned by The Dead Parents Club general membership.
I can’t deal with the tributes to the dead parents.
I can’t deal with the tributes to the living parents.
I just can’t deal. Period.
Talk to me when today is over…
