Revised Emergency Plan

Published January 31, 2013 by ia84

Tonight if aliens invade, or orcas attack, or I find myself suddenly at the mercy of a group of chipmunks who have somehow figured out how to invade my home and climb my loft bed, I have one plan and strategy alone.  I’m just going to lay here in bed and not move.  At all. I am that tired.  I seriously thought earlier that if aliens did invade I’d be super excited because either they would A. be wise and kind and have medical advancement that would be able to deal with my exhaustion and I’d feel fresh and renewed, or B. they shoot and kill me and the disintegration would be quick and I’d be in Heaven, and there would be no more exhaustion.  So, really, win/win.  I’m so tired, I don’t even care that my grammar is lousy tonight.

I still absolutely adore my job, even though it was a bit frustrating tonight.  I had three different people give me completely different sets of instructions about the same exact thing.  I was more than a little confused.  Plus, I felt my inner Sheldon trying so hard to scream, “You’re in my spot!”  Even though spots aren’t assigned at work, we all kind of have certain areas that are more or less our space.  My happens to have all sorts of helpful post-its hanging up with good reminders.  When I came back from supper, one of my coworkers had completely taken over my space.  Inside all I could think was, “You’re in my spot.  You. Are. In. My. Spot.”  Yeah, I’m thinking the counseling center might’ve been on to something by telling me that I have an adjustment disorder.  Anyway, I resisted the urge to actually vocalize my feelings, but I was a bit disappointed when my co-worker left, and didn’t put anything back.  That’s just not polite.  So, not only did I get to clean up the area I was working in, but I also had to put my normal area back in order.    Okay, yeah, I’m whiny and crabby.  I’m thinking I may need sleep.

I’m also thinking that I need to get my chimichanga and white queso on my way to work tomorrow.  I like having something special for lunch on Fridays.

-So, today I was at Hancock Fabrics, and I looked up from whatever it was I was looking at and noticed a couple of people at the end of the aisle.  Normally, I wouldn’t have thought anything of it, but what drew my attention was that two of them were wearing the Fourth Doctor scarves.  (Two different versions.)  They turned out to be pretty cool, and randomly meeting fellow Whovians totally made my day.

-I’ve yet to hear back from the job I interviewed with last week.  They told me they’d let me know one way or another by the end of this week.  I’m hoping that they simply forgot to figure in the fact that Christmas was this week, and I’ll hear something next week.  I’ve been in full blown panic since last night.  I know I shouldn’t worry, but being jobless is not something I handle brilliantly.  Plus, I really want the job at the lab, and the longer I have to wait to find out if I got the job makes me more and more stressed.

-The flu has been bouncing around our home since Christmas Eve.  It finally attacked me this afternoon.  Hopefully it’s about run out of steam.

-I’m super excited about the S Loom I got for Christmas.  I do loom knitting, and I’ve been drooling over the S Loom for a couple of years now.  I’m really bad at stitching panels together to create a blanket, so the S Loom was really appealing to me because it allows me to make blankets without having to mess with the stitching of panels.

-So, I’m not sure if I stumbled across something really incredibly stupid, or the most brilliant money-making scheme ever.  Yesterday, I was at the grocery store and one of the freezer endcaps had a deal featured that was if you bought 6 Lean Cuisines you got either a free pack of Skinny Cow ice cream treats or a free container of Edy’s ice cream.  Now, I thought people at Lean Cuisine because of the weight brought on by eating things like Edy’s.  However, if the person on the diet eats the Edy’s, they’ll gain weight and need more Lean Cuisine.

-Yesterday, I went to the Joslyn, and was once again confronted with the fact that while I really love art, I just don’t get modern art.  There was a piece of paper that was painted with a rectangle of black and a rectangle of grey.  Those were the only things on that piece of paper, and it was hung proudly on the wall.  I’m confused.  What about that makes it art?  I grew up believing that art was something you put your heart and soul into.  Maybe the artist is obsessed with rectangles.  I can’t think of any other reason that makes it make sense.

-I was introduced to Spotify this week.  It’s what I’ve always wanted Pandora to be.  I like that if I’m in the mood to hear a specific song, Spotify will play said song, and not one that it judges to be similar.  Although, I’m really hating that tonight Spotify is insisting on playing Trojan commercials every single time it goes to a commercial break.

-I can’t believe it’s almost 2013.

-Tonight I realized that the relationship of Sherlock and John on Sherlock is exactly like that of Sheldon and Leonard on Big Bang Theory.  John is Sherlock’s filter.  He’s the one who keeps Sherlock in check.  This is pretty much what Leonard does for Sheldon.

-Speaking of Sherlock, !!!!!!!!HERE BE SPOILERS!!!!!!!  I’m still trying to figure out how he survived suicide.  Obviously, he did, but how.  Mom’s theory is that there was a mask that he put over Moriarity’s face.  Possible, but it’s still bothering me that we were shown someone alive standing on the edge of the roof moving around.  I know that Molly had to have helped him cook up some solution, but I still can’t quite put my finger on what it is.

-So, I spent the better part of today with my parents making the videos for both Monday & Tuesday’s blog entries.  I’m super excited for all of you to see them, and hope that you all have as much fun watching them as we had making them.

-How about more snow pictures?  I took a bunch of photos on Thursday after Draco had finally finished it’s work here.  So, here’s what I took:

-I’m back doing job interviews.  I’d forgotten how much I truly hate job hunting.  It’s so incredibly stressful, and I have a terrible time judging whether an interview has gone well or not.  I went to an interview on Wednesday, and got a call on Thursday asking me to come in for a second interview on Friday morning.  At the end of the second interview, I was asked to sign the paperwork to have a background check done, and to also do a drug test.  The background check was no biggie, but not unlike others in this world, the whole peeing in a cup thing is just not the easiest thing in the world for me to accomplish.  The task proved impossible yesterday, so I found myself back trying again this morning (the place I’m doing this for is a lab, so the testing is done on-site).  My mom, knowing that I have always struggled with the whole bladder not cooperating thing decided to encourage me by quoting Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory episode about the ring from Lord of the Rings.  Basically, Sheldon does this whole bit about “Waterfalls…Leaky Faucets…Peeing!” in an effort to make the other guys have to pee.  Normally, this sort of thing doesn’t work on me, but when my mom was yelling it at me as I was getting out of the car it certainly seemed to help.  So, I guess I can say that Big Bang Theory helped me pee in a cup.  Now, I’m just hoping to hear from the job that they want to hire me.  The gal who gave me my second interview told me that the background check and drug test weren’t a job offer, but I know how both things are expensive, so I’m thinking that they’re at least seriously considering hiring me since they’re going ahead with the checks.

-I think I’m coming down with a cold.  Not my idea of a fun way to head into Christmas.

-Saw The Hobbit in the IMAX 3D yesterday.  It was so stunning!  Plus, I found that the second viewing was even better than the first.  I still hated to see it end.  It’s going to be a long year waiting for The Desolation of Smaug.

 

Friday Night Questions

Published August 17, 2012 by ia84

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Why do some stores already have Christmas decorations for sale?

If the TARDIS translates all languages, why is the Dcotor the only one who understands “Baby?”

Is it pathetic that if I had the option at school to get BBC America instead of Oxygen and WE networks, I’d chose BBC America?

Does anyone know how to get in touch with the Packing Fairy?

What if, after the credits rolled on The Dark Knight Rises, all of a sudden you saw Sheldon from Big Bang Theory sitting there and he said, “Bazinga!  I’m Batman!”?

Plant or fish?

If you had the chance to go anywhere in the world, and money wasn’t an issue, where would you go and why?
