The fruit tray I bought for our office food day today promised "delicious if used by 4-15".

I'm going to hold it to that.

Today, I saw my director making a Philosoraptor motivational sign.

Apparently, certain boys in the office have been less than good about following bathroom etiquette, and he decided that a Philosoraptor sign was the appropriate response.

I find I cannot disagree.

I have no idea what the context was (as sadly happens with most of these things) but my director just referenced Pedobear. He is truly of the interwebs. He is one of us.

And now, unrelated to Pedobear (no matter how Serah's default outfit makes me feel), my current thoughts on FF13-2 )

So, I just spent like a half hour trying to explain purchasing a bus pass to a very sweet man of unspecified Asian descent (although from the name, I would hazard a guess at Chinese) who tried very hard to get his point across and understand mine but which was still one of the most unintentionally* frustrating conversations I have had in ages.

I don't blame him at all for not understanding, but this is why 'Common' is such a convention in Scifi/Fantasy. Can you imagine the Council of Elrond if everyone got stuck on the name of the One Ring?

*Notice I specificy UNINTENTIONALLY frustrating. We get plenty of people who call or come in and are intentionally frustrating. They can all just go to hell.

So, in scrolling through my icons to pick one for a comment, I realized something. Something that really doesn't surprise me at all.


have basically the same expression.

Although that could be the cold meds talking. Just came home from work sick. It's just a cold, but colds always drain me way more than anything else, brain-wise. So I figure if they're going to be paying me to stare at a wall, it might as well be a wall in my own home. About to go lay down for a nap, but figured I'd waste time on the intarwebz while I ate a bit of lunch.

How've you been, flist?
corellianrogue: (Dug- Hi!)
Sup, LJ. Been a while. Seems to be my MO these days. Oh well. I have a meme to do, but I'm at work, so we'll see if I get around to it in this post. >.> See how sneaky I can be~

But for now, I have a story for you, LJ. It's a fun story. If by 'fun' you understand that I mean 'FULL OF IDIOTS.'

So, for some reason, the city decided a regular street wasn't good enough, so we needed not one, but TWO roundabouts down by where I work. Like so:

How could idiots possibly ruin that? )

*sigh* So, yes, you'll have to forgive the crappy paint drawings, but I couldn't wait until later to post these. I needed to get it off my chest. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? I could have told the city that people who live here aren't smart enough to handle these. What do they think we are, British?
corellianrogue: (Wookiepants)
Icon appropriate (sort of).

Is it weird to think one's department director is adorable? Cause mine totally is. (He's not that much older than me, anyway, maybe ten years or so, so I don't feel totally weird.) The University's fiscal year runs July 1 to June 30, so we just got our pay statements telling us if we got raises or not. (Hurray, I did. Very tiny one, but I'll take what I can get, right? Even if it is something like $.30 an hour.)

He delivered them personally to each of our desks together with a short note saying how much he's proud of our team and enjoys working with us. He was practically skipping. I love working for this man. He's so much fun. (And not just because his phone makes lightsaber sounds. Although that is a big reason, too. Maybe I should make this my permanent 'talking about work' icon.)
corellianrogue: (Bad Idea Bears)
So, yeah, thanks to the horrible enabling of [ profile] mellow_dk and [ profile] rhosyn_du I decided to sign up for [ profile] hc_bingo and now I have my card, and it is seriously the awesomest card to ever awesome. No, really, it is. See?

See the awesome of my card! )

I already have ideas for a good portion of them, as well as some extras. I think I'm going to attempt a DBSK blackout, then go back and pick up other bingos and extras with different fandoms. Hopefully that offer of betaing still stands, Rainy? ^^;

The stories will most likely all be posted over at [ profile] envious_muses which is my sadly neglected writing journal. I'll try to remember to post links here whenever I get a bingo, though, and I will keep this post updated as I remember.

Let's see... anything interesting been going on IRL lately? Hm. Well, I'm making a cosplay again for the first time in years. It's all [ profile] transitorial's fault. I'm making two of them, actually, for Nebraskon in November. Vanille from FF13 and Merrill from Dragon Age 2. If you don't know Merrill, this is Merrill.


She's an elf. An elf wearing a chainmail catsuit. This is going to be a long few months.

Joking aside, the chainmail is coming along remarkably well, even if it doesn't look like anything yet. As for Vanille, I have plans for her weapon, we'll see if they work out. I'm also thinking of just dyeing my hair pink instead of getting a wig. Why would I do that, you ask? Because I can. Because my job is awesome and doesn't care if I have pink hair. Well, blue, technically was what I asked about, because this was long before the cosplay idea came up, and my boss was all 'sure, you can dye your hair blue. in fact, I'm expecting you to show up with blue hair now, so you'd better do it.'

I love my job. Have I mentioned that? It's the most boring, mind-numbing place to work that I have ever encountered with some of the most horrible, entitled, bitchy customers ever (I work in a Parking office at a university, in case some people didn't know, and oh lord the helicopter parents) but the people are amazing and I can dye my hair blue (or pink) and show up in tennis shoes every day, and check Facebook all day, and as long as I get my work done, no one cares! And just the other day, my boss was joking about me not taking ENOUGH time off!

And my department director changed his title to 'TK-427' in our official records.

I really love my job.

Today's installment of 'people writing stupid things after getting tickets for being stupid.'

No, we certainly don't post the signs in advance, and DEFINITELY not by Tuesday of the game week. Oh wait. We do. Well, then the signs must be really tiny, right? Almost unnoticable...

Oops. (Okay, that one's been run over, but it was the only pic I could find.)

But the kid did have one thing right. I do find it terribly amusing when people do stupid things and get tickets. So yeah, when you ignore those signs and park in illegal places and get ticketed, then yes! You are quite pleasing unto mine eyes!
corellianrogue: (DBSK- shhhhh)

In my continuing WTF mail saga, I have decided that some of these are just truly too faith-in-humanity shattering to keep to myself. So here's another.

Usually quite well, actually. Although sometimes I do have very odd dreams. None of them about my wracking guilt over being involved with the horrible act of giving people *gasp* $10 Expired Meter tickets.

I'll have to work on that.

corellianrogue: (Picard- facepalm)

No, seriously. Seriously? This is what I have to deal with. These are GROWN PEOPLE mailing in these tickets. Not like we're citing some four year old on a Big Wheel here, folks. ADULTS. In CARS. VISITING A UNIVERSITY!

I mean, all the angry ones, the 'get a real job' and 'you people suck' and whatever, I can kind of understand, cause getting a parking ticket sucks, yeah. But... 'You're mean :('? Seriously?

corellianrogue: (Boy Who Waited)
Hewwo thar, LJland! Been a bit of a while since I posted something of substance, but I've been sick and blah and [ profile] transitorial was in Georgia for two weeks on job training and I was aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah lonely (but luckily, I had my [ profile] krillia to keep me entertained and get me addicted to Doctor Who.) :(

(I mean, really, even though I talked to her every day either on the phone or IM. What is this? What has happened to me? I'm a woobie. :( x10000000000000000 Janel-withdrawal. No, seriously, you guys. It's amazing and really really scary all at once, and I never thought I could DO this and just... yes. Me. Forever. Stuff. I don't even.)


Anyway, that wasn't really what I wanted to talk about. There are so MANY things I wanted to talk about! :D I shall put them all under cuts, because this will get long, oh yes.

...For instance, I have just seen that David Tennant and Catherine Tate will be playing Benedick and Beatrice in a West End production of Much Ado About Nothing and ooooooooh, I'd sell a kidney to go. Any of you rich enough you feel like sending a poor, needy fangirl to London for a few days this summer? @_@

And speaking of David Tennant (sort of) [ profile] krillia has caught me up on the latest Doctor. Matt Smith is adorable, but his companions totally steal the show for me. Which is why Krill made me this Rory icon. I wibble so much over that episode.


A meme, specifically one stolen from Rainy~ :D )

And now some completely random, unrelated things that have happened to me lately. )

And finally, a bit of a rant on stupid people and why they shouldn't be allowed to use checks. )

Anyway, LJ, that's been my life lately. Lots of happy with Janel and my Krill, lots of rawr at work, and some other stuff here and there in the middle.

How've you all been?
corellianrogue: (Flail)

Man, it feels even better being able to say that as an adult. A++ perk of working at a school.
corellianrogue: (wickedhog)
So. Right. Work. Fun times, eh? The general theme seems to be 'get your work done, we don't care what you do in between.' So... here I am! :D (Okay, technically, I'm on lunch right now, but whatevs.)

And I gotta say, the sucky customers here? WAY more hilarious than the sucky customers at either of my previous jobs. Like the person I just got a letter from who was all I SHOULDN'T HAVE A TICKET I HAD A PASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Yeah, buddy, you had a pass. For a specific lot. Which you were not in. And your ticket was for an expired meter. Congratulations, you're an idiot.

Anyway, I'm feeling a bit better now that I'm back at work, oddly. Guess it's just the getting back into a routine thing. And learning new stuff. That's been helping. So maybe I'll get around to those posts sooner than I thought.

At least the plant mommy one. I have PICTURES! :D I know you all can't wait~

Gotta admit, they've got the best policy re: breaks that I have ever heard of. 'Screw customers. We've got a schedule!'

Blaaaaaaaah this job. Oh well. Still no computer access. Wonder what they'd do were this not a dept with things to do that DON'T require a computer. Although I don't believe I've actually managed to do anything in the job description I was hired for. Fun times.

Much comfier in khakis and a tshirt/blouse... thing. And sandals! And the lone guy in the office is in nice shorts today. Yes, my warddrobe options have increased nearly exponentially.

And I have a whole cubicle to decorate, flist! Whatever shall I do with it? (Sadly, there are no walls of sufficient size for a DBSK poster. Sadface.

Finally, every day I spend in the general workforce makes me more certain that my true purpose in life is to open a cat cafe. Yes. Yessssssss...

So, yeah. First day at the new job. It's not HARD but anything tossed at you all at once like that is overwhelming. Have been mostly cashiering cause I don't have a logon for my own comp yet. Hopeful of possible internet access when I do. We shall see. There's a girl here who also worked at the bank, although I didn't know her then. We had a nice talk about the wtf that was the takeover back in June.

Have already been informed by a coworker that I arrived during the last week of busy times until December. Not quite sure if that's great timing or horrible timing.

Either way, everyone wish me luck in the exciting world of parking and transit!

Well, shit.

So, you remember how I posted yesterday about my bank having shit going down?

Well, shit just got worse. One of the girls I've worked with the longest who is such an amazing networker she should work in PR... anyway, she texted me a few hours ago saying that people were getting random calls telling them that their services were no longer needed and not to come to work tomorrow. Neither she nor I have received a call (yet?) but at least two other branches in town have had their teller lines almost completely wiped out. And two of our girls are gone. At least. We don't know anything about the non-tellers in our branch.

I admit to being exceedingly scared. I mean, I understand cutting losses and everything, and that a business is all about the bottom line, but... we're a BANK. The bottom line is helping customers, so... why are they getting rid of all the people who do just that?

I hate this. A lot. Fucking... dammit. And they're doing this now, how do I know they aren't keeping just enough of us around to staff branches until they get all new people/people already from their own banks there to push us out?

...I need a new job.
corellianrogue: (You are here~)
I was very sad today as I realized that no one else at work would understand why I was giggling over helping a guy named Kon. :( It was even worse when none of them understood why I was giggling over newly installed Archbishop George Lucas.

I feel so alone. ;________________________________;
corellianrogue: (Harper- evil genius at work)
Downstairs in the university for training today and tomorrow, so that means internet usage at work, zomg. Gasp, shock, etc. Fun times had by all. Probably still technically illegal, but oh well. Class so far is meh. Already pretty sure I'm forgetting things. Wish me luck, ne?

I need more shirts that don't need to be ironed.
