cybermathwitch: (can I? Kara)
Well... as [personal profile] kadollan said: we got fired.  They eliminated several positions at that place we work, and ours were some of them.  

Remarkably (and any of you who know me much and/or awhile and know how, well, let's say "high strung" I can be) I wasn't particularly upset by this.  I didn't fall apart, break down, or cry.  I got a fairly decent severance package that gives me a little bit of room to work out what I'm going to do (and, especially if husband's family is willing to help out with somethings, which is entirely possible I hope if necessary) next.

Hand of the Gods, says I.

[profile] wintermoon3 (who's position still exists for the present) said that this was weird, because she's the one who's been feeling like she's not been where she's supposed to be for awhile now.  I pointed out that she'd already gotten the memo, and didn't need the kick in the proverbial pants.  I had a copy of the memo, I just wasn't trusting it enough and Bek... well... she really hadn't even gotten a carbon copy.  So yes, I see the hand of the Divine in all of this. 

So now it's on to better things.  Brian says that I seem happier and more relaxed already.

Yeah.  :)

My Day

It. Is. Hot.

It has been hot all month. We have had virtually no rain, and even our humidity is trying to go away. This makes me a very, very uncomfortable Koren. Last weekend our AC died (luckily in this heat the apartment complex sees that as a perfectly justifiable reason to use the emergency maintenance pager and it was fixed by Sunday evening) and we spent most of it at [livejournal.com profile] wintermoon3 and [livejournal.com profile] poetheather's house where it was cool.

It was hot again today.

Work: )

And I left early to go see...the Psychologist: )

This also brings me to Knitting: )

for lunch there was Bento: )

and much thought in general through the day about Fandom: )

Also? Totally AWESOME surprise waited for me at the World of Wal the other day. I was looking at the 19.99 DVD case, trying to decide if I should talk my husband into MacGuyver or Forever Knight, when what did I see, lying on it's side (cover wasn't visible) in the bottom far corner?



I do not lie.

It is, in fact, out on DVD. How I missed it on TVShowsOnDVD.com, I don't know, but DUDE! LOVE!

(Yes, Daddy, this is what Mom NEEDS for her Birthday. I'm serious.)

The ONLY reason I do not own this now is that, despite its proximity to the 19.99 DVDs? It was around 45.00. ::is sad:: My friends don't know this show. They have not witnessed the wonder of early David E. Kelly, or the glory of Ray Walston's impassioned speeches, or Don Cheadle and Fyvush Finkel's verbal fencing. (Not to mention Holly Marie Combs's pre-Charmed awesomeness.)

"Douglas Wambaugh for the defense!"

I must rectify this situation.

Did I mention it was hot?



I just found out that Nickleback, Finger Eleven, and Puddle of Mudd are going to be performing at the GEC (ok, now it's the Sommet Center. Not the point.)

WANNA GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I'm actively avoiding making icons for [livejournal.com profile] bsg_challenge and posting instead. After avoiding posting all day. 'Cause I make sense. Sure.

trip to my dentist - things you didn't want to know: )

And I missed work today because I was running late, and since I had to leave early yesterday for the dental appt. I was better off missing an entire day than clocking in 2 minutes late. Because that makes sense. Stupid policies. But since I was in desperate need for lots of sleep and have been running a fever of about 99 (give or take a point or eight) it works out just as well.

finally, meme, because I need cheering up (snurched from [livejournal.com profile] comedownstairs):

Leave a list of fictional characters in your journal that you would love to get a message from. It is readers mission, should they choose to accept it, to write you an in-character "letter" from a character on that list. The message can be anything, it could be a love note or even fandom related etc. Feel free to comment on each other's letters. And multiple takes on one character are welcome.

I'm gonna go paint Warhammer models.

cybermathwitch: (is it october?)
First, if anyone has been trying to get in touch with me via phone... "it's dead jim." Well, not dead like a dead thing, but dead like a "has no battery and I'm working on fixing that" thing. But I haven't been ignoring people on purpose, honest.

Second, a to do list (for the next year):

1. plan (loosely) a mini-shipper-con for October sometime. This may end up being just me and the immediate area (though fandom-peoples, if you wanna come visit Nashville, we'd love to have you! The more the merrier!), but even if it's 4 of us in a hotel room for a couple days being complete fannish geeks and watching bsg, hex, and vids, I'm ok with that. I need that.

2. start saving for VividCon, and a trip to Vegas to visit Triplet. (Seriously weigh option of asking parents for plane ticket as Christmas prezzie.)

3. get a computer we can make frakking vids on. (This will likely be christmas from my Puppy's side of the family.)

4. seriously inquire about online digital art and webdesign schools.

5. don't get fired.

6. have a Dionysia. Maybe Farscape-themed, cause I can. (depending on my mood. I just haven't been in as much of a Farscape headspace lately.)

7. Get engulfed in Hex to appease the Twin. ::eg::

8. Get Twin engulfed in BSG.

9. Get other Triplet down here for a visit.

10. super-secret-to-do: talk Triplet the second into coming to VividCon too... (super-secret-to-do courtesy Tiny Yellow Type (TM), which you can blame on [livejournal.com profile] theusual)

11. Oh yes. And plan my frakking wedding. ::meeps and hides::

I'm so far behind this morning.  Crap.  I blame it partially on the stupid stomach bug I think I had yesterday.  :oP  I didn't get this done last night like I meant to.  I'm updating the link in the previous post, but am also going ahead and linking it here to save people from having to back up on their f-lists.

So, here be ICONS.  Please take a look and feedback=love.

[profile] ez_as_pi is my hero.  She has scanned the Pilots! BSG Skiffy magazine article here.  (The article is SPOILER-Y, so you've been warned.)  She has also scanned in the Maxim BSG photo shoot, but has requested it not be reposted so I haven't linked to it.  But yay! 

Must go to work.  Blech.
cybermathwitch: (Witchy)
Firstly, happy (slightly belated) birthday to [livejournal.com profile] miss_mary_sue! ::hugs and smooches::

Secondly, I am now working at Borders customer care center. For the last three weeks I've been answering phones and registering borders rewards members. The call volume, unfortunately, has been as bad or worse than MSI was - ugh. Luckily (thank ALL THE GODS!) a position was available in the data entry department (no incoming phones) - and they gave me the job there. It's 75cents less an hour, but I'll stay saner longer. It's also a regular schedule, instead of completely random like it was before. I start that on Monday. (I'm still on phones today, and I have tomorrow off.) I had a panic attack last night about coming in today (because last week Saturday was the worst day) but I managed to make it in.

I'm rereading the Anita Blake series from the beginning now that I've read Micah. It's hard, because I don't really *like* Anita that much (at least not for that long a span) before Incubus Dreams because it feels like she's standing still for SO long. On the upside, I've finally managed to purge my mind of the pictures on the first several American release paperbacks - that awful skeletal Jean Claude and 80's!Anita. ::shudder:: So I'm hoping to get a fresh perspective on them.

I'm looking for any and ALL song recs for this series. I plan on going and scouring Laurell's blog for music mentions too.

Does anyone happen to know if you can both go to the guidance center in M'boro as a patient *and* work there at the same time? Because the Fates have a twisted sense of humor some times. One of the temp agencies I'm signed up with called yesterday and said that they had a medical receptionist job available and did I want them to send in my resume? I said sure. They call back today to tell me to go to an interview tomorrow, and I find out that the job? It's for the Guidance Center. Which is where I'm going to have to start going for mental health treatment. If there's no conflict, then yippy-skippy and it could potentially be great. If there's a conflict, if I got offered the job I'd have to turn it down.

::pulls out hair::

And WHY does MTSU take four-bloody-evers to even get names submitted for interviews?


(where's Eve to kick ass when you need her?)
cybermathwitch: (Witchy)
::pets the new Google desktop thing-a-my:: Pretty! Shiny!

Sorry - had a moment there.

So - work. And more work. Did I mention work?

Actually, I took Tuesday off of work, truth be told. I got across town, was falling asleep at the wheel, and had the overwhelming gut feeling of "don't go today". I don't know if it was my brain rationalizing something, or genuine, but I followed it and went back home. I think it was good for me.

I FINALLY went and got new glasses. (We're gonna be eating mac and cheese and tuna salad for a week, but it had to be done.) No more headaches! (Well, ok, still headaches, but no more constant-all-day-long-oh-my-god-exhausted headaches that I now know were eye-strain. So WOOT!)

Crap. 7:30. Gotta leave.

Quick question... who's reading? I'm not doing any kind of unfriending or anything, just curious about who I'm actually "talking" too.

Love y'all!

I'm a lowly customer service/data entry rep. Granted I've been here for 20 days shy of two years and all but the first 3-4 months of that in the same department, but I am still only intake.

Keep this in mind.

When I'm having to tell one of the clients HOW THEIR JOB/COMPANY IS SUPPOSED TO WORK (granted in very polite, couched terms because hello I don't have a work!death wish)... there's something wrong w/ this pic. The liason from said client is going to cause me to pull out my hair, I just know it. (Which is a shame, really, because I actually *did* my hair this morning (more than a quick pony tail/bun) for the first time in awhile. And it's quite pretty. I don't want to tear it out. kthnx)

My sweetie/fiance/betrothed (pick a term) has an LJ now. He hasn't posted yet - ::pointed look in his general direction:: but his username is [livejournal.com profile] korens_puppy. (All his idea, I swear.)

If anyone sees my Trio-fic muse ::glances heavenward at Kalliope in supplication:: (the one that actually makes me *write* stuff out for real though) *PLEASE* send her home. I want to write - I know what I'm going to write, but it won't go.

I'm actually having a really good day... even if it doesn't sound like it.
cybermathwitch: (migraines)
The universe is - well not *against* me, but is a little trying this weekend.

I took yesterday off, originally so I could go do a job interview, but the more I thought about the offer, the more suspicious I was of it (one of those sales/commission/insurance things - and I HATE sales), so I ended up not going. I needed the break though. I think it was good for me. I even ended up going to [livejournal.com profile] kadollan, [livejournal.com profile] dirocyn, and [livejournal.com profile] unforgrettable's house for D&D. (Well, I did japanese/study stuff while they played D&D, but still.)

I have a migraine. I've had a migraine just about every day for a month. So I'm going to the walk-in-clinic at my MD's and see if they'll give me something for it. And see if I can *FINALLY* get my blood pressure meds refilled. It's been 5-fuckin'-months and still nothing. Because that's almost certainly attributing to my migraines.

I found nifty links, but since I have to go to the doctor's I'll post them later.

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] tnbella and [livejournal.com profile] jessofthebugs - GO TO Virtual ScaperCon. Cause dude - it's ScaperCon weekend, dammit!
