I am SO happy I realized i could use THAT ONE before we go! *snirk*


So I FINALLY finished the shirts I agreed to make myself, taraleesg1, and godzchild96 for the Chicago Con!  It was something we figured would be fun and woul represent us as how WE see ourselves... because really, we are the Procrastination Musketeers (i have proved it in making these shirts!)....



The only thing that's missing now are the autographs we're planning on getting ON these shirts! (hence the reason the designs are so simple and there's a LOT of white space left!)

I've got to brush up on my Great Ace quotes for when we go to Chicago... nothing is a better ice breaker than walking up to a stranger and going "Bumblebee Tuna... Bumblebee Tuna!" *snirk*


I FINALLY got Madre and Smurfinator to watch Continuum!!! *dances* We actually just got finished watching it a little while ago...*sigh* That movie is so much love, and they actually LIKED it. Okie donkie, they liked AOT too, but THAT is neither here nor there. The point is they didn't complain AT ALL about it (though Smurfinator made some frelling comments to Sam - and i mean literally to her during the movie...yes, he is the type that talks to the movie characters - that REALLY pissed me off). Of course he was asking a BUTT load of questions about five seconds before the answer to the question would come on screen. *headdesk* And he didn't get the significance of a lot of the stuff going on in the movie (like the hardcore fandom stuff that made a lot of us squee or awww, i mean). But they enjoyed it and that's the best I could hope for.


Madre just yelled upstairs (because we yell across the house... a lot) to put it on the tv guide channel. That special about Comic Con is on...so I figured it HAD to be about SG-1. And it was, but I caught the tail end of it. *headdesk* Just my frelling luck... I'm sure it'll be on again, but I never know when and it's always such a hassle to try and catch stuff like that. GRRRRRR - hey, maybe it'll be up online eventually. What am I saying - this is SG-1 stuff I'm talking about! OF COURSE it will be online! XP



If you were to ask me what's the question people have asked me the most in the past month it would HAVE to be - 'when are you going back?' OMFG, it's starting to grate. Really! It seems I know A LOT more people than I thought I did because it seems every damn day SOMEONE is asking me that question! It takes all i have to POLITELY tell them it's about two weeks until i go back to school. Honestly, all i want to do it go out on the porch and shout 'IT'S TWO FUCKING WEEKS, ALRIGHT!?', but that won't stop people from asking me, will it?



OH, we saw The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor last night!!! XD Thoughts behind a cut to save flist space. Don't worry, no spoilers! )


I think I'm getting sick... My head is hurting, my nose and throat are bothering me, and for some reason my teeth have been hurting me. Maybe it's my sinuses...I usually don't have a problem with them, but when I do, it's not fun. Honestly, though, I'd rather be sick NOW than in three weeks when I'm gonna be at the con!


Worked on some fic today while in the box. I'd been feeling a little lost fic wise, but today after pontificating (if you want an explaination for THAT one, just let me know! *snirk*) a little, I decided just to go ahead and get back into a fic I started a couple weeks ago. I'm actually happy with the part I was working on just before packing it up in the box. It's classic DV mischief stuff - it's always so great when the banter flows so freely and easily! I don't know if I'll finish the part tonight, but it definitely should be done by tomorrow.



I'm thinking about doing a centerpiece for the contest in Chicago...thoughts, opinions? Yes/No? I know I can make a mean Stargate out of aluminium foil and masking tape, but I need to know if I should go through the trouble of getting the other stuff I'll need to do it. So, flist thoughts on this idea?


Okie donkie, on that note, I think I'm gonna end this here. I really need to get ready to bed and try and fight off this ickyness!

P.S. - Pimping both the icon in this post AND my new default icon! The default I made on my own - even capped it myself (YAY for having the movie on iTunes!)! XD And the one in this post was made by the awesome [livejournal.com profile] magnavox_23!!

*sigh* 


I have watched it again (Wally World DID have it, so i now have it on iTunes and on DVD - AND I will be getting the one from Creation! XD), and am still in love with it. I'm gonna try and convince Madre and the Smurfinator to watch it tonight - so it might be a watching it three times in the first day kind of day! 


Also watched the special features (not all of them - the Making of Continuum one, and the Arctic one), of course! Loved both of them...had several LoL moments, INCLUDING my subject line! XP 


Continuum pwns all at the moment, and i think i will be plenty fine with it until CHICAGO gets here (yep, still coming down south!) in 24 DAYS!!!


I've got a few things Madre wants me to do around here, then I'm planning on posting several things. Also am inspired to write fic! XD

dannysgirlsg1: (Burn Notice - Fiona)
Let me just say there is nothing quite giggly mood inducing like con reports and pictures. Thanks to MSOL (they've updated for the day, for everyone who doesn't check the page a bazillion times a day like I do!), I have been able to look at lots of fun pics and reports from the Continuum panel. XD And yes, it HAS put me in a GREAT, giggly mood! (Not that I wasn't in a good mood before - it's just better now!)


I think it may have something to do with CONTINUUM being available TOMORROW on iTunes (how early do you think it'll be up?? Midnight tonight, or some time tomorrow morning?? *snirk* Can we tell I'm in my 'one can only hope' mentality?!), or that Chicago is getting closer and closer every day (yes, the actual city is literally shifting closer and closer to south Louisiana!) Only...*looks at SG-1 calender next to the desk* 26 DAYS - DAMN, that REALLY isn't a lot. WOW....that just really hit it home. OMFG.....*DANCES*


 I have gotten a few things done today.... it's nothing like earth shattering or anything, but sometimes it's the little things getting done that makes the day feel like an accomplishment, right?


Went to Wally World to pick up a few supplies (most importantly for that FRIEND of mine... we would've run completely out today if we hadn't gone to the store to get some). While we were there, I looked to see if they'd gotten Robot Chicken in. Of course they didn't! The only way I'm gonna get it is if I order it online or pick it up at Best Buy. So that'll definitely be waiting until I get back to school and get my money. Surprisingly, it's A LOT easier to get to Best Buy there than it is here. Also while in Wally World, saw one of my all time favorite teachers, Mr. Lear. He was my Law teacher Junior year and my History teacher Senior year. He's also a fellow SG-1 fan, AND I'm one of his favorite students. So that was a delight.


Had to clean up the floor up here because the BAD cats have taken to using it to their liking (meaning PEEing on it - it's why i have to keep my bathroom rugs hung up!). They also are disgusting fuckers and dig in my trash, taking out my used tampons and the soiled toilet paper it's wrapped in and pulling them out. I know which cats do it too - it's Marishka and Nanny, the CONSTANT trouble makers. Plus, the dog isn't innocent in this either. He ate ANOTHER pair of my underwear (one of my oldest and FAVORITE pair of boy shorts. FUCKER!) today, AND stole a used pad from the trash and ate it. I swear, if we got rid of these three, our house would be a much cleaner and peaceful place.


Then picked up the room, which wasn't as bad as it usually is. Of course, that's when I found someone had PEED on my ipod dock! GAH! It had to be the dog from the way it seemed it had been pissed on from ABOVE (it's on the floor since that's the only way i can use it while still having it plugged in and being able to reach it). I swear, i'm about ready to go out back and shoot him. He is WAY more trouble than he's worth! Anywho, back to the cleaning. I had decided to NOT vaacum at first (even though it desperately needed it!) because Sikozu was in here sleeping, and i didn't want to disturb her...


So after that, decided to fix one of the posters she managed to frell up the other night. It was the Ba'al poster i put up last week or whatsuch. The other night, just as I had turned off the light and settled down to sleep, she jumped up onto the windowsill and ripped a section of it clean off. I was pissed at the time, of course, and kicked her off the windowsill. But it was a rather clean cut, and easily fixable with tape. And how handy that I just bought a new roll of packing tape a few weeks ago (for those who don't realize - packing tape is PERFECT for self laminating if you don't have access to a machine or what you want to laminate is too big, like the SG posters from the mags. Just need a steady hand and a decent, unbubbled roll of packing tape!) I took pics of it, before and after:



Of course while I was doing it, the static from pulling the tape from the roll was attracting the cat hair from the floor. That's when I decided I NEEDED to vaacum before finishing it. So I did. And of course, Sikozu wasn't bothered by it at all! *headdesk* She just watched me from the windowsill the whole time! So all those times before today that I put of vaacuming because she was in here, sleeing on the windowsill, were for nothing!


Added to the Chicago Con Fund. It's now at $278.53. I'm pleased with this. I haven't spent ANY of it since coming home from school. XD And i still have 26 days to add more. That's a very nice number! 


I only have the season 1 finale to watch of Burn Notice (and I've watched the S.2 episodes the night they've aired, so I don't have to worry about that!). The show really is awesome, and it's definitely inspired some brabbit action. I've got a lot of spaces to fill with the AU table on mission_insane! Don't you think Daniel and Vala as spies would be a fun fic?! Also, Fiona is one badass chick! She is now one of my most favorite female characters in fandom (Gabrielle Anwar is just GOOD at playing tough chicks! I mean, Margaret on the Tudors was an AMAZING character. Her and Brandon= SQUEE!), and that is why I now have an icon of her on my journal. I actually made it because I found the selection on the BN icon comm was lacking in an EXCELLENT Phi icon!


But yeah, the more Burn Notice I watch, the more excited i get for MS's character! 


With only so many days to go until I head back to school and go to Chicago, I've realized I've got lots of lists to write (it came to me, mi amor, that not only do i need lists for the trip, but for the move back to school too! *headdesk*). And I've got to finish up the shirts for the Musketeers and make a few corrections on the Michael sketch (i've barely looked at it since last fixing it, so hopefully I won't be hatin' it as much as i was back when!). Time really is winding down to the big trip (though it still feels like FOREVER away!)


Thanks to [profile] dvshipper, I've lost the game! ;D (we WILL b spreading it on the trip - TRUST ME!)


I believe that's all i've got right now (at least personal post wise) - i've got an interesting little 'meme' (cause it seems i've been 'making' a lot of those lately??) in my fron i need to work out. Oh, and i REALLY have to pee right now, so this is it for now! *snirk*


~Pip

P.S. - Madre just texted me and told me that the Smurfinator just told her that Shredder died. For those who don't know, Shredder was Trey's dog. She could be a bitchy dog at times, but she really really was a cool dog! *sniff* Poor Trey!

dannysgirlsg1: (Wall-E - Wall-e and Eve)

I realized last night that I was sorely lacking in the great ace inspired subject lines - so it all you see is Ace quotes for the next week, you know why...


I really don't have much to post about tonight b/c all I did as work today, but there are a few things I wanted to talk about...


First, before I lose the oomph to do it, I HAVE to rant about the thing at work today that makes me GLAD I'm heading back to school in a month. There are certain days when I work inside that I really cannot STAND the other cashiers. It's not something they do specifically,  like say something bad or act horrible. It's just almost all of them are selfish, spoiled, south louisiana raised brats. Kylie and Gabbie are probably the only two I never have an issue with. Take tonight, for example. Whitley and Janice were working (we always have three cashiers on Friday nights, since it is the busiest night of the week for us) with me. I know i've mentioned it before, but these girls tend not to talk to me because they think their hot high school shit and i'm not important. It's no big deal, really. I've taken to bringing my notebook to my register and writing to [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1 or working on fic when I don't have customers. And of course, i ALWAYS stop writing when someone comes to my register. Well, these girls (and it's not just these two - most of the other cashiers do it) will get caught up in talking to each other, or with one or more of the floorboys, and not be paying attention to customers. So I'll end up with three people lined up at MY register, when registers 2 and 3 have no one at them. And of course i always say, in a kind manner, to the customer that 'she can get you on register 2'. I shouldn't HAVE to say that - whoever's ON register 2 should be paying ATTENTION and let the customer know HERSELF that she's open. If i see someone standing in line at another register, and i have no one, I always let them know I'm open... And it's not just happening once. It's happening OVER AND OVER. At one point tonight, I was in the office helping Madre and Kylie walks in saying 'Mandy, there's someone at you're register...' I was like 'I'm not AT MY REGISTER, WHY is someone there?!' Because Janice and Whitley had let her put her stuff up on my register without saying anything. And Whitley had NO customers at the time! I was pissed, to say the least...


I actually prefer working with one of the floor boys on register than with any of the actual cashiers! I mean, at least the boys will let a customer know he's open. Jessie is the best to work with because he pays attention to customers and he makes me laugh and talks to me... But Jessie is off until after tomorrow. *sigh* So i've had to deal with annoying cashiers and mostly annoying floor boys. 


Yeah, I won't be missing my job when I go back to school. Knowing that it's waiting for me when I get back here isn't looking as good as it did last year...


Okie donkie - enough about Hebert's for now....


So my tongue is still a little irritated. It's not as bad as it was last night, but it's still annoying me. I listerined again tonight, and it has helped. I'm hoping it'll be gone by tomorrow morning...


OH, and I've figured out why I was feeling a little off last night. I got my FRIEND today (didn't i say I hoped that's what it was??). And surprisingly, even with getting it today, I was in a good mood all day. I've been bouncy and perky and...bouncy. I think the pics from the Continuum premiere at Comic Con helped. Oh, and I'm gonna get to see it in TWO DAYS, and Chicago is less than a month away!!!! And having all these people give such lovely reviews on ff.net! (even though i still feel horrible for spamming like i did. I really wasn't posting back to back to back like it came up...i mean, there were time gaps in between a lot of the fics being posted...but ff.net just put them all up like that!)... so i've had lots of things to keep me in a good mood!


Burn Notice is made of win - just thought I'd say that.


Also, [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1 and [livejournal.com profile] dvshipper both saw it today, I've been thinking about Wall-E. It reminded me that I wanted to try and find a possible list of all the Disney/Pixar cameos that they always throw into each of their movies! They're always fun to look for when you go back and watch it! I can't seem to find just a round-up of the cameos and I was wondering if anyone happens to know where I can find one?  (There is ONE cameo I saw on my own, and that was seeing Chomp from Toy Story in a section of Wall-E's earth junk collection. I tried to see if the Pizza Planet truck was in there because it's the ONE thing in ALL of the movies, but I never saw it! I'm SURE it's there though!)


Okie donkie, i think that's it for now... my PLAN (you know how those go *snirk*) is to work on Ch.13 of CoL.... hoping to get it done tonight!

And of course i always say, in a kind manner, to the customer that 'she can get you on register 2'. I shouldn't HAVE to say that - whoever's ON register 2 should be paying ATTENTION and let the customer know HERSELF that she's open. If i see someone standing in line at another register, and i have no one, I always let them know I'm open... And it's not just happening once. It's happening OVER AND OVER. At one point tonight, I was in the office helping Madre and Kylie walks in saying 'Mandy, there's someone at you're register...' I was like 'I'm not AT MY REGISTER, WHY is someone there?!' Because Janice and Whitley had let her put her stuff up on my register without saying anything. And Whitley had NO customers at the time! I was pissed, to say the least...


I actually prefer working with one of the floor boys on register than with any of the actual cashiers! I mean, at least the boys will let a customer know he's open. Jessie is the best to work with because he pays attention to customers and he makes me laugh and talks to me... But Jessie is off until after tomorrow. *sigh* So i've had to deal with annoying cashiers and mostly annoying floor boys. 


Yeah, I won't be missing my job when I go back to school. Knowing that it's waiting for me when I get back here isn't looking as good as it did last year...


Okie donkie - enough about Hebert's for now....


So my tongue is still a little irritated. It's not as bad as it was last night, but it's still annoying me. I listerined again tonight, and it has helped. I'm hoping it'll be gone by tomorrow morning...


OH, and I've figured out why I was feeling a little off last night. I got my FRIEND today (didn't i say I hoped that's what it was??). And surprisingly, even with getting it today, I was in a good mood all day. I've been bouncy and perky and...bouncy. I think the pics from the Continuum premiere at Comic Con helped. Oh, and I'm gonna get to see it in TWO DAYS, and Chicago is less than a month away!!!! And having all these people give such lovely reviews on ff.net! (even though i still feel horrible for spamming like i did. I really wasn't posting back to back to back like it came up...i mean, there were time gaps in between a lot of the fics being posted...but ff.net just put them all up like that!)... so i've had lots of things to keep me in a good mood!


Burn Notice is made of win - just thought I'd say that.


Also, [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1 and [livejournal.com profile] dvshipper both saw it today, I've been thinking about Wall-E. It reminded me that I wanted to try and find a possible list of all the Disney/Pixar cameos that they always throw into each of their movies! They're always fun to look for when you go back and watch it! I can't seem to find just a round-up of the cameos and I was wondering if anyone happens to know where I can find one?  (There is ONE cameo I saw on my own, and that was seeing Chomp from Toy Story in a section of Wall-E's earth junk collection. I tried to see if the Pizza Planet truck was in there because it's the ONE thing in ALL of the movies, but I never saw it! I'm SURE it's there though!)


Okie donkie, i think that's it for now... my PLAN (you know how those go *snirk*) is to work on Ch.13 of CoL.... hoping to get it done tonight!

I figured I'd use an icon I hadn't used in a while - plus it kinda goes with the subject line, and my nicknamesake needs lovin to!! *squidges Pippin!*


So i realized i said I'd post about all that junk over the weekend.... obviously, that all didn't get talked about. But now I'm planning on talking about some stuff because I'm in a mood to post. Yay!!!


I guess we'll start with the Chicago Con stuff since that's probably what's on a lot of people's minds (at least...the peeps that are going! *SNIRK*)...

On... Thursday night, I went to the website for the con with the intention of getting just the Ben Photo Op. It was the one thing that i needed to get that i REALLY REALLY WANTED (I mean, I WANTED Michael and Lexa's individual photo ops too, but they weren't priority like Ben's. I mean, I've had my pic taken with Michael already, and plus I ALREADY have the Michael/Lexa Photo Op ticket for Chicago.), so I figured I'd do it then and not have to worry about it any longer (I had been meaning to do it since the Sunday before and kept forgetting). Clicked the nice littler order tickets link and went to pay for the sucker. Well, of course they have the Michael Photo Op ticket right NEXT to Ben's. And I knew I had the money.... so i said WTH, and went for it too. I made it all the way to the info page where you fill out billing address and whatsuch. I still had enough money, AND had seen the Lexa ticket JUST under Michael's. And, well - I went all out! Got all three of them Thursday night!


Now this left me with only $13 something in my account, but i figure it's worth it. I mean, I HAD the money, I didn't go overdrawn, and now everything I WANTED that i still needed to get is out of the way. I've already figured the next few weeks of expenses (netflix, fsu cable bill - which isn't still being billed to me, it's just spill over from unpaid months when i WAS still in school - cell phone bill), and have decided to stop buying lunch at the store and just bringing some with me. I'm also taking into account 'Continuum' next week, so don't worry about that. [profile] taraleesg1is already on top of making sure I don't spend unnecessarily, and I'm also staying on top of it myself. Plus, the Chicago Con fund has $236.91 in it now - and i'm planning on adding to it when i can. So I WILL have money for the Con - i'm just gonna have to wing it from now until then.


I also got all the paperwork printed and stored in a specific folder for the con. Itineraries, Confirmation Emails, Order Invoices. I ended up being emailed the Photo Op tickets I ordered on Thursday on the following Friday. I was so excited! But now I'm worrying about the other two tickets I have yet to get, when i know [profile] taraleesg1got them for sure. I'm thinking it's b/c I ordered them back in February and March. I'm HOPING it's because of that and I'll be getting them the normal way and not in PDF format. If not, like I said I printed the confirmation and invoice emails i received for both of them. I've also got my bank statements that say the money was taken it out. If I don't have them by the con, i'm gonna make sure they replace them when I'm there. I paid for the tickets - I WANT them.


Also, [profile] taraleesg1and I discussed our luggage arrangements (i still have a bag of hers from NJ con) and decided BIG suitcases were the way to go for this one. My original plan was to get my own luggage set, but those are way too expensive for me. But, thankfully, The Smurfinator has an UBER-SUITCASE of the type we were discussing, and I asked him if I could use it. And he said yes! 




I think that's it for the Con news...


SW ROBOT CHICKEN ON DVD TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's about frelling time, ya know?! I've been waiting for this to come out since I watched it premiere on Adult Swim last year!!! I've decided I'm gonna convince Madre to go to Wally World tomorrow to see if they have it. If they do, I'm gonna use the $20 some idiot left behind at the gas shack yesterday that became my 'tip' to buy it. (The money things - it's not the first time he's done it. He'll insert his credit card into the pump, it'll approve it and let him pump gas. And yet he STILL comes to the window and gives me cash. BOTH times he's done this, I've tried to get his attention but he just goes on his merry way... and I save it to see if he'll come back for it. But he doesn't, and if I don't keep it, the store just takes it. So of course I end up with it - Hebert's gets enough of my dineros as it is!) If they DON'T have it, I'll wait until I'm back in school and have my fin aid money and buy it then. I really don't want to USE the $20 - I want to put it in the fund like I did the last one, but i've been WAITING for SW Robot Chicken for SOOO LONG! So it's a worthy sacrifice. (assuming Wally World has it, of course - and that I can convince Madre to take me.)



In other news, we have yet ANOTHER addition to our cat monarchy. Last Thursday, when all of us were getting to leave, Madre asked me to let the dog back inside from going potty. Well, I was standing on the stairs (for those who don't know, my house is 12 feet off the ground, so we have stairs just to go UP to the house), looking out at the yard and didn't see him (we have a big yard and a few little buildings on it, so it's easy to lose the dog). Then he appeared from behind the shed and was running around. And it looked like he was THROWING someting in the air, picking it back up, and tossing it again. I was like 'what has he got?!', thinking it was Marie. So I put my purse and shit down and started after him. Of course I couldn't see him once I was in the yard, but Madre told me he hadn't moved. I get over to where the fucker is, and I find a KITTEN. Not one of Sheila's or River's or Sweetness' (meaning none of the litters that have been around the house since I came home) - i have NO CLUE where this little cat came from. But OF COURSE the poor thing was in SHOCK and was all slimy and dirty. Harley wouldn't come near me when I walked out there, like he KNEW he'd been doing something wrong (smart dog - I still chased him down afterwards and punished him). 


We're not sure how old the little kitten is, but he can't be more than a month old - if that. His eyes are already open (though one of them is messed up from the dog), but he's still nursing. We bought kitten formula and a nursing bottle at Wally World and have been hand feeding him. After getting over the initial shock, and getting cleaned up, he perked up A LOT. And he's very open to people, which is weird considering Harley found him out in the yard. Madre has named him Riley (and no, she wasn't inspired from National Treasure. The name just came to her), and he's an active little puss. Never stops going unless he's SLEEPING. LoL. But he is so cute and earned himself a place inside among the other lucky little shits *shoots a look to Sikozu in my lap*. I was gonna take a pic of him tonight, but since he's ALWAYS GOING, I couldn't get a clear shot. I did video him though. Of course, I have lost my camera between then and now (and it was just a few hours ago!) But I'm off tomorrow, so I'll find the damn thing and post the vid.


Sadly, though, we didn't just GAIN a new addition. We lost one the three remaining kittens from Sheila's latest litter (for those who don't know - Sheila is now the cat that has been here the longest, and all the other cats here wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her. She literally IS the grand matriarch of the bunch. And people think I'm kidding when I say we could have a reality show on Animal Planet about our cats!). Madre had named her Angel... Back when we first brough this litter outside, Angel fell off the porch. She was okay, but didn't seem right after the fall. She got weaker and weaker each week (and she used to be such a rambuncious little kitteh - I even have video of her playfighting with Marie (who is her sister)), and we all knew she wasn't gonna be with us long. Well, Harley, the loving fucking dog that he is, decided to 'play' with her last Wednesday. We'd told him NO over and over and over again NOT to mess with the kittens. But did he listen? NO - he beat her around and tossed her all around, and she obviously went into shock (he'd done the same thing with Jake, our midget cat, back in January. All of Jake's fur was GONE from his head...), and was just too frail to recover. 


I sat with her until she was gone - and let me tell you, that is the HARDEST thing to do with a pet. Watching them go right before your eyes and knowing you CAN'T do a thing about it. It's not the first time I've done it, and i KNOW it's not gonna be the last. But it never gets any easier....


*sigh* And on that sad note... Now that I've flooded all y'all's flists with rambling, I'm gonna finish this here.

P.S. ONE WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AND ONE MONTH UNTIL CHICAGO!!!!
dannysgirlsg1: (Rommie and Remiel)
 I didn't even see that part, but I did watch the whole 'Big Bada Boom' stuff and whatnot, so I have Fifth Element on the fron...


Anywho, much of today was NOT made of win. Not only did I wake up feeling more than a little tired (and i don't know why - I got up at 11!), I had to work a register today, and that is never something that's fun when you're feeling lethargic and blah! Well, i get there and start doing the whole 'nice cashier' thing because I know I hate getting a bitchy cashier when i'm at the store. Things were slow today, so it wasn't that bad. There was this ONE guy that came to my register and was HARASSING me. First he walked in the store and said something to me, and i didn't understand him. So I asked him to repeat it, and he said 'nevermind.' Then he bought a candy bar at my register (after 'pretending' to walk out with it), and then hovered around. One of the floor boy brought a watermelon to my register for the guy this man had come in with, and the creepy dude walked off to find that man. Then he came to my register AGAIN with two bags of chips, and walked away. A woman came up between the creepy dude and the man he was with, so the man he was with let her go. But the CREEPY dude was like 'who put that  up there? Who put that up there?' the whole time I was ringing the woman up. By this time, his badgering was getting on my nerves and I was trying to ignore him. So i wrung up all the stuff the guy he was with was getting (including the watermelon, which the creepy guy kept asking if I've wrung it up. 'Did you get this? Did you get this?' Finally I said yes, and he said 'Yes sir!' all snippy - like i was gonna sir him.), and started to bag it. Well, creepy dude (who kept calling me 'young man') began snatching up the bags almost right out of my hands before i even had a chance to put them on the register. Then when I had finished with all the bags, he reached out and snatched my wrist. I told him to leave the store, which he did. But  I was so aggravated and upset I started to cry (remember i was feeling groggy and crappy to begin with), so Madre took me in the office to calm down. 


I swear, if I didn't know Chicago was gonna be worth all this, I'd quit in a heartbeat. 

I calmed down after a little bit and got back to work (though I told Madre later that if that guy ever came in the store again while I was working, I wouldn't help him), but not without some serious contemplation on quitting. Why do I put myself through all this hell week after week?!


As [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1texted me during my break - CHICAGO MY LOVE!!! CHICAAAAAAAAAAAGO! (I have to repeat this mantra daily or I'll sure walk right out of that hell hole.) 


I know some of you are thinking 'well at least you have a job and i'm sure it's not that bad.' Yeah, try working in South Louisiana at a grocery store where arrogant meets stupid! These people think they are the greatest things to walk the earth, and are too damn stupid to realize just how messed up they REALLY are. GAH!


Moving on, the crappiness reached it's peak when I managed to spill Mountain Dew Code Red all in my purse. Thankfully I realized it before anything got majorly ruined (such things as the current SG-1 Novel I'm reading, my camera, my iPod, the RETURNED letter for [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1), but it's still the fact that is happened to me on THIS day. Now I have to wash my purse and use a spare for now (in all honesty, i want a NEW purse but can't be spending the money on the type of purse I want. *headdesk*)


The crappiness did ease up eventually and I found myself in a good mood by the time i clocked out, but it's just the fact that i always seem to have my worst days WHEN i'm working that pisses me off. I hate that i'm only working for the money right now. If I didn't need it so badly for next month, I probably wouldn't be working at all!


Right now I'm seriously debating DLing the Wall-E OST. I really want a new OST (there's a few of you who understand this NEED for a new one!), but I want to wait and see if Wally World has it first b/c I HATE DLing whole OSTs from iTunes. It's just more satisfactory to have the CD in hand and the case to display with all the rest of the OST cases. *sigh* And also, I shouldn't be spending the money. *headdesk*


On a fanfiction front, I stayed up last night to work on a post AOT DV piece who's brabbit was insistant and whiny and wouldn't leave me alone. I actually like the way it turned out because it's friendshippy DV stuff, with a HINT at something more. I have a hard time keeping it away from the relationship stuff with them, so I'm proud of myself that I stayed within that friendship box. Of course there is another post AOT DV fic that would have them breaking free of that box into the romantic stuff (it actually could work as a follow up to the one I wrote last night), but the one last night turned out as i hoped it would - Friendshippy with a splash of future something thrown in! XD


I'm also planning on posting the rewritten chapters of Family (which was the first fanfiction I ever posted) tonight before bed, along with the latest fanfic done for [livejournal.com profile] mission_insane. Speaking of my mission_insane, if you go my master table post and see a prompt you want me to write something for, just comment here or on that post and let me know with the prompt. Right now, the only prompts that aren't linked to their proper fics, or don't have the fic posted for them yet, are Bite on the Saucy Table, Don't Dream it, Be It on the Phrases table, and Worthless on Un-themed #4. Feel free to pick any of the others. I know I'll think of SOMETHING for them!


I have just eased my need for a new OST. JUST ordered the Mamma Mia! OST from Amazon (okie donkie, preordered) because i am SOOOOOOOOOO excited for this movie! I mean WOW, you have no idea how excited I am. I am the biggest sucker for musicals EVAR, and this one looks to be an EXCELLENT one!


Okie donkie, I think that's it for now. Time to go perused the flist one last time before posting all that fic!

Moving on, the crappiness reached it's peak when I managed to spill Mountain Dew Code Red all in my purse. Thankfully I realized it before anything got majorly ruined (such things as the current SG-1 Novel I'm reading, my camera, my iPod, the RETURNED letter for [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1), but it's still the fact that is happened to me on THIS day. Now I have to wash my purse and use a spare for now (in all honesty, i want a NEW purse but can't be spending the money on the type of purse I want. *headdesk*)


The crappiness did ease up eventually and I found myself in a good mood by the time i clocked out, but it's just the fact that i always seem to have my worst days WHEN i'm working that pisses me off. I hate that i'm only working for the money right now. If I didn't need it so badly for next month, I probably wouldn't be working at all!


Right now I'm seriously debating DLing the Wall-E OST. I really want a new OST (there's a few of you who understand this NEED for a new one!), but I want to wait and see if Wally World has it first b/c I HATE DLing whole OSTs from iTunes. It's just more satisfactory to have the CD in hand and the case to display with all the rest of the OST cases. *sigh* And also, I shouldn't be spending the money. *headdesk*


On a fanfiction front, I stayed up last night to work on a post AOT DV piece who's brabbit was insistant and whiny and wouldn't leave me alone. I actually like the way it turned out because it's friendshippy DV stuff, with a HINT at something more. I have a hard time keeping it away from the relationship stuff with them, so I'm proud of myself that I stayed within that friendship box. Of course there is another post AOT DV fic that would have them breaking free of that box into the romantic stuff (it actually could work as a follow up to the one I wrote last night), but the one last night turned out as i hoped it would - Friendshippy with a splash of future something thrown in! XD


I'm also planning on posting the rewritten chapters of Family (which was the first fanfiction I ever posted) tonight before bed, along with the latest fanfic done for [livejournal.com profile] mission_insane. Speaking of my mission_insane, if you go my master table post and see a prompt you want me to write something for, just comment here or on that post and let me know with the prompt. Right now, the only prompts that aren't linked to their proper fics, or don't have the fic posted for them yet, are Bite on the Saucy Table, Don't Dream it, Be It on the Phrases table, and Worthless on Un-themed #4. Feel free to pick any of the others. I know I'll think of SOMETHING for them!


I have just eased my need for a new OST. JUST ordered the Mamma Mia! OST from Amazon (okie donkie, preordered) because i am SOOOOOOOOOO excited for this movie! I mean WOW, you have no idea how excited I am. I am the biggest sucker for musicals EVAR, and this one looks to be an EXCELLENT one!


Okie donkie, I think that's it for now. Time to go perused the flist one last time before posting all that fic!

Before I forget, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] belisse!!!!! I would've made you a nice kind of present of some sort, but...i honestly didn't know what to make... *unsure shrug* But i do send birthday wishes!! XD



I have some other random thoughts to post on, so bare (or would it be bear? *snort*) with me as my thoughts jump from place to place...



How many Tudors fans do I have on my flist? I know of ONE sure one... I got her into the show, so I KNOW she's definitely a fan. For which I am very grateful, since I need SOMEONE to discuss characters, plot points, and theories with. ANYWHO, for anyone who is, did EP.7 make you cry?!?!?!?! I know EP.5 (both of these S.2, of course!) had me in tears, but 7 was just....POOR HENRY!!! Just the way he took it...it was SOOOOO SAD. And ANNE - OMG! I feel so bad for her too! She's going mental, and there doesn't seem to be anyone to help her!


Onto other shows....OMFG, NCIS! For those avoiding speculations and spoilers... )


Irked b/c Indy tickets for my area aren't available yet! Is it just b/c I live in a bass-ackwards state that is always behind in everything, or do no theaters have tickets available?? I'm really hoping there will be a midnight showing for it!! I'm so damn excited for this movie!!!! It'll be my first Indy in theaters!!! *dances i anticipation*


During the whole money crisis during the last few weeks of school, my Chicago Con Fund (that being the saved up change portion) took a big hit. After recalculating the amount today, it's at $33.67 ... and that's AFTER adding in all the change I've picked up since coming home. As depressing as that number is compared to the last time I did the figuring on it, I'm glad i still have change LEFT to make a decent 'fund' from. And it's still a promising amount considering I have until August 22nd to put stuffs into it!


I swear, when at the con, I'm gonna tell Ben that my cats just don't seem to like him...They pulled the head off my Mitchell doll, and out of all the possible faces to scratch on the Men of SG-1 poster from the mag several issues back, they're destroying the Mitchell one. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that one of my cats is named Sikozu?? IDK - but i find it amusing...not in the sense that my SG-1 stuffs is being DESTROYED by the little heathens, but just - it's ONLY the Cam stuff!


Anywho, i think that's about it for now. I know there was something else I WANTED to mention, but right now it escapes me...

*points to icon* Using this one in honor of the txt commentary had today while [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1 took part in watching AOT again. XD


Just have a few things to post about...


Finally got to see Ep.6 of the Tudors - Made of win, of course! Henry is amazing! He will forever be my favorite character. Brandon is a very close second and behind a cut to avoid spoiling anyone )


Watched NCIS after that, since I missed it on Tuesday (only because my bathroom needed a good deep cleaning after THAT MAN lived in it for over a year and DIDN'T clean it once. JIM is GONE, btw!). And the only revision to the earlier post is i'm not so confident now in one of the character's 'staying' power... But despite that, LOVED LOVED LOVED the Tony/Ziva UST through out the whole episode! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!


Friendathon fic still an issue, but i'm getting help on that right now! If anyone else has any suggestions of their own for Daniel/Cam frienship piece with the prompt 'learning curve', just drop a comment. I'd really like several different 'thoughts' to work from. XD


The Michael vid - haven't had a chance to work on it since Monday, but will definitely dive back into THAT either tomorrow night or Saturday while in the box (definitely Saturday while in the box!) - There will be an available viewing of it (flist only, undownloadable, of course) when it's finished for feedback. So far, Madre likes what I have. Of course having actually FANDOM peeps check it out would produce more knowledgable feedback in the content used....


Crap, I thik i'm getting sick. I felt like shit all day yesterday (i ended up having to work 8-4 on a register b/c James is a dick and scheduled me then), so when I got home, I laid down. Slept until Madre got home from work, hung out with her for a little bit, then came up and went BACK to sleep. I felt better today (less BLEH), but my throat is still hurting, and now my nose is starting to stop up and I'm starting to cough.


OH, also, i ended up getting a HIGHER check than i planned, so I gave Madre $60, put $80 in the savings toward CHICAGO, and had a little left over to last me until next wednesday. And I should be getting another check like this because now I'll have four days this week instead of three since James had me working yesterday (so as much as working yesterday totally sucked balls, i got more hours so it'll be good in the long run).


And I think that's it for now - I need to get to bed soon, and try to keep this sicklyness at bay!

If I have that song in my fron for the next couple of weeks, you can totally blame creation - That's the song I picked to use for my Michael Shanks vid contest entry. I started in on it today while I was in the box... Yeah, ain't getting this one done in less then two days! And if this one's giving me major brain cramps, wait until I start the Ben one! *headdesk* I'm glad I have until the beginning of August with these...


As for my prompt on the friendathon - yeah, still haven't even sat down and put the brabbits to work on a general idea on where to go with that one. For all who are interested in my prompt, it's Cam and Daniel, the prompt word being 'learning curve'. If anyone wants to toss some possible beginning threads for the story my way, I'll happily take them!


So Ted just jumped in my shit about not paying my part of the phone bill - he didn't yell or anything (which really is a surprise, considering). And he mentioned something about being $500 behind - idk what that shit is about, cause the only thing I own them is the money for the phone. I haven't been HOME to owe them anything else. Madre and I agreed that I would be paying her back over the summer - which I will start on Wednesday when I get my check for this past week. She told me not to worry about the crap that Ted was saying, and I'm not. I'm just mildly irked that he's blaming me for his money problems again.


When I get my check on Wednesday, and see how much I'm actually getting (i clocked 31:48, I believe - I know it's 31:something 8 - I didn' quite catch the 'middle' number), I'll be able to divy (how DOES one spell that word?) things up the way I want. Depending on what I get, I'm thinking $30-$50 for Madre, $60 to put into saving for Chicago, and have whatever's left over to have for spending (probably for Madre for Mommy's day) - IDK though... Like I said, I have to see my check. It's probably lower than I'm expecting, which WOULD be my luck.


The baby that I mention last week? Yeah, the poor little kitty died the other day. Very sad - but he held on longer than I originally thought he would. Still, it's a smidge upsetting. He was so cute! So Sheila is now down to five kids - all of which are the cutest little balls of fur EVAR. Of course they always start out that way, and then they turn into the THINGS rampaging all over the house now. *snort* No, all joking aside, ya'll know i LVOE my kitties!


What else did I want to talk about??


Oh, my work schedule for the week - OFF Tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday (SCORE!), working Friday 1-9 R (of course! Abyss is on Friday night! GRRRR! and the fact that I have it on DVD (3 times), and iTunes is neither here nor there), 1-9 B on Saturday, Sunday off, Monday 1-9 B, and Tuesday off (Very happy I'm getting Tuesdays off - I would HATE to fall behind on ENKISS!). I'm pleased with this schedule - True, it's only three days, but after this week of 3 days straight on a register, I'll take it. It's still money, right?


Before anyone asks, no, I haven't read any in a little bit - I brought the companion with me today, along with the next book on my list just incase I got productive. But I ended up spending the whole time in the box working on the vid. It really is a complicated one. I'm thinking I might read after posting this since I'm not that tired, and I really want to get back into my frelling reading list! I don't want all my early progress to be for nothing!


Miffed 'cause Sunday's ep of the Tudors isn't up yet! I SOOOO wanna see it! That show is like my crack - it's seductive and addictive and amazing. True, it's not completely historically accurate, but that's why I always go in with the actual history not biasing my viewing. I watch for the entertainment and the storylines being weaved and the KICKASS costumes. It's a seperate entity from what actually happened, even if it's tied to it in almost every way. I honestly reccommend it! If you don't have faith in DLing it or buying the first season, it's up on surfthechannel (where I watch the current season). Again, definitely recommend it! It is LVOE!


Okie donkie *told you I would use it!*, I think that's about it. I'm gonna take one last look at my progress on the Michael vid, then it's off to read!


~Pip


P.S.: PIMPING MY LATEST ICON ADDITION!!! *points to shiny new icon*


P.S (squared): I'll be getting to the meme I was tagged on, and that meme from a while back where people asked me questions probably tomorrow. That is the plan anyways!
