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?

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.

B. Porgs on R2D2

I'm being torn apart.

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 am terrified to even look in the direction of the Harry Potter series.)

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.

I had to attend a meeting with my boss this morning that was held by the city government and it mostly went just fine, but he still scares me driving. I had a couple of instances where I was grabbing onto the door handle hoping we didn't get smashed, tbh. He's just very "jerky" and sometimes slow to react? I guess that's it.

Anyway, it was informative and he took me to a sandwich shop afterwards and thanked me for going with him. I like him, but he's something.

During the meeting (probably almost a hundred people in an auditorium), he took two phone calls and excused himself to the hallway, lol. Thank God I was there to get the information for our services that we were there for! I also saw this guy in front of me take a picture of the PP slideshow the city was using on his phone and internally rolled my eyes at how lazy that is and then my boss did it, lol.

I went to this local supermarket at lunch time that's closing and there were 4 or 5 dudes out front wearing construction-type vests holding signs to not shop there because the store's employees aren't unionized. I wonder if they even realize it's closing as what a monumental waste of time that is considering they've literally announced they're going out of business in a couple of weeks and everything in the store is on clearance, lol.

Anyway, let's talk about weird little sayings/things from different countries that we find funny. I think saying "expiry" instead of "expiration" like we do in the U.S. sort of adorable. (I noted an Aussie saying it.)

Let's not turn this into a the U.S. is terrible because they tip servers and don't have universal healthcare deal, though, k?

How often do you communicate with your S/O while you or they or both of you are at work? - Mood:Good
Wednesday December 27 20171:20:31 PM |
Just curious as I think it varies quite a lot. I used to work with cuck's boss and we eventually came to realize that he takes multiple calls a day from his stay-at-home wife. They have three kids, but I think all but one is technically an adult now. I don't know what they talk about; I think that would drive me nuts.

I might shoot my husband a quick message on yt or via text here and there, but some days we don't communicate at all during the day, especially if he's out in the field.

I'm getting excited for our Florida/WDW trip in February now that I've survived the office move. I haven't been to Florida since I was 13 years old, I think, so over 20 years, but some of my fondest memories were there as a child vacationing with my parents and visiting my aunt, who lived in St. Petersburg.

My boss is on vacay this week, too, which is also great.

My boss always drives me crazy at Christmas time with client gifts and cards, tbh.

This year we were moving and, therefore, did not order cards (literally no time to work on them), but he's at it again on the gifts.

Always waits until the last minute, I can't get the gift baskets there until the week after Christmas (again), so I just pick out a New Year's card and put down "Happy Holidays from Rag_Doll_'s company!" on them and forget about it.

He also has boxes of chocolates this year and these guys are too lazy to hand deliver (which is way nicer than shipping them), so I'll undoubtedly have to ship most of them very soon. He also keeps changing his mind on who to give them to and I finally said to him earlier "If you make one more change, I'm going to eat a box of this candy!".

It's all for marketing/client relation purposes, but he's also cheap as hell, which makes this un-fun.

A catastrophe. - Mood:Anxious
Monday November 20 20174:07:56 PM |
It's shaping up that way, folks.

Long story short, my office is moving again and our lease is up on the 30th. Moving day is the 29th and we are *way* downsizing.

My boss only secured the movers TODAY and we are renting totes from them rather than buying boxes and those aren't guaranteed delivery until Wednesday morning, so that gives us three days to pack because of the holiday. I'm probably going to have to come in over the weekend.

We had a sale on Friday for used furniture, filing cabinets, and miscellany, but there is still a LOT of stuff left and my boss is dragging his feet on donating stuff. He thinks we can call a charity next Monday and have them pick up a large quantity of items on Tuesday, lol. You can't just count on that, ffs. Maybe, but no way assume.

He's supposed to do a walkthrough on the 30th with the landlord. Yeah, right.

Tile flooring... - Mood:Good

Has anyone ever had a tile floor, or more specifically the grout, sealed? I love the tile flooring we put in years ago, but I made the mistake of letting Lowe's pick out my grout color and it's light and it's getting a little dingy in high traffic areas.

I wonder how much it would help if I had it sealed. Any thoughts?

My coworker invited everyone in the office to his 3 year old's birthday party in a couple of weeks. Is it me or is that a little weird? I've always thought children's birthday parties are for their little friends and close friends and family, no? Luckily we are going to celebrate my stepfather-in-law's birthday out to dinner that day so I have a pretty good excuse not to go.

The little girl is darling, but we were just at his house a couple of months ago for a housewarming party and we also brought a gift.

My friend/coworker that I share an office with is like "enough already", totally channeling George Costanza.

We went to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon Nation Park with my in-laws last weekend and we all had a great time. There are some photos in the Autumn thread in Generals.

We bought hiking boots before the trip and they were GREAT.
