I confess I was lost in the pages - Mood:Good
Monday September 10 20181:44:44 PM |
In case anyone was on the edge of their seat, I did get a porg popsocket and I like it. It's nice to have a different, easier way to hold the phone if you're going to be on a long phone call or goofing off on the net for a while.

Yesterday at the grocery store this lady approached me just to complement me on the entirely OCD way that I had my grocery cart arranged. She even took a picture of my cart with her phone to send to her daughter to show her that there are other people like her, lol. She was very nice and she said her family gives her a hard time for being organized.

My newest coworker is this total nerd, who is a guy who's in his 50s and retired from the air force. He's into LEGOs and we've spent some time talking about those, but this morning he must have gotten a better look at my desk and he asked "Are you a Star Wars nerd?", haha.

I'm glad there's another nerd here.

Are the stupid things really helpful or just a stupid fad?

There are some cute ones out there and I verified that they're *allegedly* supposed to stick to my phone case.

I'm super ready for the 3 day weekend, dudes. We're having New Mexican food at the office for lunch tomorrow, too, woot woot.

The trials and tribulations of The Last Jedi... - Mood:Good
Friday August 03 20186:18:38 PM |
The new girl at work is really personable and seems like she will work out pretty well, tbh. As suspected, my old coworker, which I have mentioned in past comments, was phoning it in over the last several months and the new girl really wants to do things the right way, which is SO refreshing. My attitude at work has improved since she's been here.

Anyway, I wanted to get a copy of the teaser poster for The Last Jedi for my bathroom to fit into a 12x18 frame that I already had in there with something else in it and BOY has that been an adventure. I ordered one on ebay, great, THEN it turned out I accidentally ordered an actual piece of canvas with the poster printed on it, which is actually of great quality, but what can I do with that? Any ideas?

I got some Dick today! - Mood:Good
Saturday July 21 20188:34:21 PM |
Sorry, but those jokes are absolutely always funny. Maybe I'll earn a brownie point with skyfish for this purchase. I was done once I saw the photo on the dust jacket.

Here's the totality of what I bought at the used bookstore today:

The only one I've read before is Where the Red Fern Grows, which I loved as a child and read multiple times. We'd never been in this bookstore and it's only been open for 7 months, but it's down in our hood and I think we'll be back again. The only thing is that it's small and they had an author there signing books, but she was some mystery writer and I'm not into that genre and felt bad because I felt like I was stepping over her, lol.

Workplace stuff (WARNING)... - Mood:Good
Wednesday July 11 20185:50:14 PM |
I am indifferent to this situation, but maybe I should be miffed, you tell me.

The gal who did our accounting at the local office took another job and we have a new gal here who started on Friday.

Anyway, my coworker found out that my boss is paying the new girl $22.60 per hour to do A/R, A/P, and some other miscellaneous office duties that "Accounting" has always handled.

To put it out there straight, I've worked here for 10 years and I make $16.25/hour. My coworker does a very time-consuming, but simple job and has worked here for 6 years; she makes $9.25 per hour.

Santa Monica? - Mood:Good
Monday July 09 20186:24:51 PM |
We are likely going to do our usual Disneyland trip next February for our anniversary and I've been jonesing to see parts of California other than just Anaheim and San Diego.

Californians and others who have been tourists, who has been to and has advice about visiting Santa Monica? My in-laws have been, but it was a super quick trip in conjunction with a doctor visit.

There's the pier and the beach, but what else is cool there or in the area?

I am feeling kind of off and on today, if that makes sense. Bad hair day, so it's been in a ponytail since lunch time.

After today, I have a two day work week next week and the following week, it's a three day week, so I'm looking forward to that.

I'm pretty sure my coworker that I've lightly complained about is taking another job and I feel a little guilty because it's a bit of a relief as I'm tired of having to do some of her stuff when she's not here and also answer a billion questions about when she'll be in or where she is.

Need opinion on wedding gift quandry... - Mood:Good
Thursday June 07 20182:08:29 PM |
So we're attending my friend's wedding back at home at the end of the month and they've registered at this kitchen supply store (2+ hours away by car from home and where the wedding is taking place) that's kind of odd in that it isn't a place where you can order from online or that even shows their products online. The website urges you to attend one of their seminars and they show you how their cookware works. The slip inside the wedding invitation says this is the only place they're registered and that gift cards are available.

Rather than going to this trouble and hoping they are responsible enough to mail the gift card or certificate in time, what if I write a check for the amount that I was going to put on a gift card? Is that rude? What you think?

I`ve been a bit of a delinquent today. - Mood:Good
Tuesday May 22 20185:53:57 PM |
The dumb corporate office set up a Health and Safety meeting a few weeks ago, but forgot to notify us until after business hours the night before, so most of us didn't attend and, lo and behold, they send us a handout and some videos to watch and a QUIZ to turn in by the end of the week.

Like, if they'd made it clear we'd have to do something extra if we didn't attend, I bet more people would have logged in to the meeting and just not paid attention to it, haha.

Anyway, I watched and read the dumb stuff and then gave the answers to everybody in the office because I'm nice like that and it was literally zero new information there.

I also forged a coworker's initials for the accounting person because she needed to put a bill in to get paid.

I came into work late this morning because I had an appointment at the optometrist before my VSP runs out at the end of this month. My optometrist is a goofy guy and he talks nonstop the whole appointment, today it was about Disney mostly because he saw my Star Wars purse, lol.

Anyway, he said "These are the best glasses I've seen all year!" about my lenses, haha. He usually does complement me on the state of my glasses as I am very careful with them.

I got into work about 10 and my boss informs me my coworker had an "accident" and broke her finger and she won't be in again until Monday. I said to him "You'd make me come in if I broke my finger, wouldn't you?" and he kind of exasperatedly says "No comment", haha.

If you scream in a dream, you wake up. - Mood:Bored
Friday May 11 20185:43:00 PM |
Or it would seem so as that's what happened to me this morning. I only remember a snippet of a dream in which I was asleep/laying in our bed and the husband was taking a shower in my bathroom for some reason and a ghost appears at the end of the bed, but it's not humanoid, it's like a definite mist, and I screamed. That's what woke me up. Then, I was dreaming of doing exactly what I was doing sans the husband showering and ghost, so I was like "Was that... real?!". Kind of a spooky way to wake up today.

Anyway, I was thinking about which Star Wars planet would be the best to live on:

Naboo- beautiful, lots of greenery and bodies of water
Ahch-To- beautiful scenery, most importantly PORGS
Tatooine- feel like I live there already
Coruscant- too f*cking busy, omg, I get anxiety just looking at the bustling cityscape
Dagobah- a damn swamp, gross

This is just off the top of my head.

Ok, that's a lie, but I want you to choose the shirt I'm going to wear on May 4th because I can't decide and, obviously, this is very important! Behold, my Uniqlo Star Wars shirts that I bought in Orlando:

I'm going to have to iron the chosen one, obviously, they've been folded for way too long and crammed into luggage, etc.

Last Sunday my mom told me she was selling her house and moving out here and that she was going to rent for a year and then buy a house.

She's been wishy-washy all week (pretty unlike her, tbh) and tonight she tells me that they (her and my grandmother live together) are going to rent a place back at home if she sells the house. She's been very flippant about it and I've moved cross country and she has a lot of stuff, so I've been telling her she needs at least a GENERAL plan and I keep bringing up things that she hasn't even thought about and I'm just over it, tbh.

I'd love to have her out here, but if she's not ready to move yet, that's fine, too.

We went to a vintage toy store today and it was totally fun. I was the only female in there and it was cute. cuck bought me a few little things. I don't go out shopping too much anymore, but it was fun today.

Today totally has a Monday feel, but the day seems to be moving along pretty nicely, so I probably shouldn't complain.

I'm going to my friend's wedding in June back at home and I put the RSVP in the mail today. She had a blank on there for you to indicate a song for their "playlist". At first, my mind went to some pretty tired weddings songs (some of which I love, but eh), but I finally came up with one I was satisfied with- You Send Me by Sam Cooke. Nice and not heard at every wedding in the known universe.

They are getting married at the zoo, so that should be fun.

My mom is putting her house up for sale, so I don't even know if I'll have a place to stay when I go home, lol. "Also, btw, Rag, find me a place to rent for a year out there.", oh ho ho, no pressure or anything. There's more to it than that and I'm a little stressed.

I need streaming help, my lovelies! - Mood:Good
Wednesday April 11 20183:22:53 PM |
Disclaimer: I am old school and have illegally streamed ONE movie ever because someone else provided me the link (then I proceeded to by the Blu-Ray of said movie when it came out, lol). I have cable and Netflix (streaming and DVD), so this is generally how I watch stuff.

Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what my best way to watch the entire series of Girls would be. HBO Now & HBO Go seems to have a lot of complaints attached to it, though I could do a 30 day free trial (allegedly).

Amazon Prime will let me watch the first two seasons included, but not the last four. I'd have to pay extra for that.

Then I'm like, do I need the Chromecast stick if I do that or should I watch stuff on my netbook? I watched Call Me By Your Name on my netbook and I honestly didn't mind it that much.

What should I do? I'm good with this stuff when I get into it and generally don't have problems, but..

The last few weeks at work, I've just been really eye-rolly about this place. I hit 10 years of service in January and the work is pretty routine at this point, there hasn't been enough of it for the day to go by quickly, and several coworkers have just generally been irritating me. My boss has been pretty good to me lately, so I feel a little guilty.

My boss has actually been one of the lesser annoying people lately, lol. He is def procrastinating on a submittal due next week, but that's par for the course.

The gal that does accounting here really takes advantage, if you ask me. She takes personal calls almost every day, doesn't keep the exact same schedule all the time, etc. I like here, but it's so hard to stay motivated when other people are f*cking off. Why did it fall on *me* to clean up the Accounting drive, which I did today? She was in another employees office for...

Toys & other evolving/dying industries - Mood:Good
Wednesday April 04 20181:50:20 PM |
I hadn't really thought about it until yesterday when I was visiting another forum site, but someone was talking about how kids want different kinds of toys/entertainment than when I was a kid.

Like, action figures are apparently not as big of a thing as they used to be and kids want to play on their tablets and want digital content instead of actual physical stuff these days.

I've recently been in Target and Wal-Mart's toy departments and it really seems to be true. I know LEGO is pretty big still, even though I've heard their sales are declining a bit recently, but no fad stays hot forever.

Speaking of, my SW LEGO sets were delivered by Amazon on Easter Sunday, but I haven't started putting them together yet.

What other industries do you find have changed dramatically in the last 10-20 years or are going through a big change right now?

I think tv/movies is def a big one.

So I read recently that "fandom" is short for "fanatic domain" and not just some shortening of "fan kingdom", lol. I know just enough to be dangerous at times.

I'll probably be cheating on yt some now, because I just joined a new forum. It's a Star Wars one and I'm kind of surprised at how intelligent the conversation is at this place. The funny thing to me is that they asked a basic Star Wars question when you're registering or else I guess you fail the requirement to join, haha.

Anyway, I'm glad it's Friday and payday and all that jazz. I've been meaning to watch The Force Awakens again all week, but have been too tired at night to do so without falling asleep, so I'll rectify that tonight.

My new purse is supposed to arrive tomorrow, so yay.

How it go, lovelies?

So just looking for opinions and discussion here. I was talking to my mom right before we went to Disney World, so this was recently. I'm not sure how we got on the topic, but she kind of said something derogatory about people (adults) who dress up and go to ComicCon. I kind of stopped in my tracks and said "OK, well, who are those people hurting? Is it better to be an ADULT and go out drinking/go to clubs/do drugs, etc.?" I told her a lot of folks would probably find it ridiculous that an adult couple goes to Disney frequently, but that's what I wanted to do and I find it a better alternative for myself than the "adult" things I'm supposed to be doing. Different strokes and all that.

Probably the only thing to stop me from being one of those dress up and go to ComicCon types is my husband, lol. If he were half the nerd I am, I'd be in trouble.

How feels you on the topic?

Confession: I seem to love Star Wars.

I've watched in release order through The Force Awakens. Rogue One is probably in my mailbox from Netflix right now. I'll probably watch that on Friday, then I've pre-ordered The Last Jedi. I'm on the verge of ordering all the Blu-Rays from amazon. I bought some cool SW merch when we went to Disney World a couple of weeks ago.

I love Kylo Ren. I'm hooked.

I saw the most hilarious thing on the way in to work this morning on the freeway. It was this Ford Ranger from Washington state, covered in dirt, but above the Ford badge on the tailgate, the guy had written in the dirt "MY" over the Ford badge and "SUCKS" under it. I genuinely laughed out loud to myself for a minute.

Our trip is almost here and I am equal parts excited and nervous about it, tbh. I have done a lot of planning and question asking of the disnerds and I feel prepared, but it's still all pretty new to me, ya know? Getting somewhat acquainted to 4 theme parks is a little daunting.

Also, I think I'm a little in love with Star Wars. I think I was somewhat afraid that would happen, which is why I put it off for so long. I've only watched episodes I-VI so far, however. I will watch the 3 newest ones in the next month.

What's up, home fries?

Yeah, surprises! I guess mostly good ones, but bad ones can be mentioned, too. Get to it, this place is boring.

-I didn't name this journal with song lyrics, which is rare.
-I have been working my way through the Star Wars movies in release order (have watched through Episode II) and I actually like them. I like the original trilogy better than the prequels thus far, though.
-My boss is going to Disney World at the same time we will be there. Not sure if this falls under "good" or "bad", lol. He'll only be there the second half of our trip.
-Saw a Bentley SUV in traffic on the way to work last week. Unremarkable.
