quick thoughts
  1. I hate working placement testing days.
  2. I hate working placement testing days in the summer with NO AC.
  3. What idiot created the lj "Find" feature? I assume they were drunk and had no idea what they were doing, because I can't "find" anything using it.
  4. I think I need to figure out how to get photoshop or something similar so I can make myself some more icons.
  5. I need to find my camera cable so I can make the photo posts I've been meaning to make.
  6. I wonder if I could get away with buying a kiddie pool and lounging in the backyard with a margarita.

Toilet Training 101
eddie izzard
Pee goes in the toilet.

Not on the seat.

Not on the floor.

Not on any other surface or area.

Just inside the toilet.

This is a fairly widely accepted commonality, yes?

Then can someone please explain to me why I had to spend 5 minutes of my omg-i-have-to-pee-NOW break doing the "i have to go really really bad" dance around a COLLEGE bathroom wiping pee off the seat and throwing paper towels on the wet spots around the front of the toilet which I was not going to assume was just water?

Also, your sanitary napkins etc.? See that nice bin attached to the wall right next to the toilet? Closer to the toilet than the toilet paper dispenser? THAT is where those things go. Not teetering on top of the trash can. That is where paper towels go.

I'm not even sure what the logic behind that move was. It's across the room from the toilet (single toilet bathroom, no stalls). How...?

I also have to assume that the feminine product disposal bins are not just to look pretty, that they are somehow required and are emptied seperately than the normal trash (at least this is what I have read), further adding to the question of why you would choose the normal trash over the one specifically for your item(s).

You used to try and put the square peg in the round hole for hours as a child, didn't you?

I swear I'm not always raging ;)
Wow, it seems the majority of my posts are my complaints and raging about this or that, but I swear, good/fun stuff does happen to me! I guess the rants are cathartic to write out for me. I'll try to include more of the other stuff that happens too, I have been meaning to anyway ;)

This weekend was really good actually, so I will have to post about that when I have time late. For now I am escaping work, Good ridance for the day evil place!


Grocery Shopping
(from http://omnipotentsushi.livejournal.com/12041.html fill out some more letters!)

Most of the time I really can't stand going grocery shopping. It's probably because I'm too much of a  perfectionist, so if I'm going to do something, it should be done right. So in groceries that translates to going down every aisle and checking everything, after of course making a thorough list at home, and spending a few hours in the store.

And I hate shopping in general too. Even for clothes. I have about an hour or two limit, and then I start getting annoyed with the whole thing and want to leave. And clothes are things I LIKE buying, so you can imagine how little patience I have getting groceries. Sure, I like the food I buy, most of the time, but it's not like I can use most of it right away, or should.

Another reason I don't like going is once I am home for the day I want to STAY home for the day. I get home from work at 12 (I really need another job), and I really rarely feel like leaving after that. I throw on my pjs as soon as I get home and I am done with the outside world. And grocery shopping is not nearly entertaining enough to make me want to venture out again.

Thankfully Dan doesn't seem to mind doing most of the grocery shopping. He pops by after work and picks up what we need, brings it home, and I put it up.

Maybe once we start planning what we want to buy better I will be more willing to go. I really want to start planning out meals, writing down exactly what we need to buy for every day of that week or two weeks and just buy those things. Cut down on wasted food, and maybe eat healthier.

And now I really want to go eat lunch :P

About ME
The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

boredom = meme...dom
athena and helo

So I'm here at work still, covering the afternoon person's shift, and I have an hour and a half left and absolutely nothing to do. So you can all join me in some memeing! Meming? Hmmm...

Either way, DO IT!!1!!one!!!!


Comment with something for me to talk about that starts with one of these letters. Make me babble about anything -- TV shows, actors, food, etc. Be creative. :D

One topic per letter -- it's like a claims list! I will cross off letters as topics appear. If you'd like to make more than one request (for different letters), go for it. Just don't steal all the letters.

I will post a new post talking about all 26 topics given to me! So you will all have more to entertain you :)

LettersCollapse )

This place is killing my soul.
Jessica, go check that computer for this program.

Jessica, call this person about that thing.

Jessica, explain to me again what the issue was yesterday that I saw first hand myself because I was standing right there.

Jessica, do this part of my job I'm too lazy to do.

Jessica, go run this errand.

Jessica, listen to me bitch for hours about how much work I have to do and how crazy Saturday will be, but don't notice how I'm not actually DOING anything about it.

OMFG lady, I'm not your fucking secretary. I am here to manage the students that come in here and some computer crap. I'm not your errand-boy. In fact, I never even WANTED to work in here! I came here to be a tutor. Just because our boss coerced me into working in this office instead of tutoring after 3 years doesn't mean I like it.

I need a job I enjoy. A job in my fucking field of study. Or I need to go back to school. Good thing I know fuckall about grad school. fml
