I had never left work so angry-- (but I didn't post it last night, because I needed to channel my anger into something productive, and hence the icons that I made) I am not angry now, but it may come back if I have to look at dumbfucks mug.

It was a busy day-- I had to do the ferring line (that has to do with estrogen medicines, and progesterone-- all of those ladybit chemicals) and it is especially busy on Wednesday. Well I rocked out close to 13,000 units throughout the day (give or take a hundred, who knows) and I didn't get done until 8 pm (after having worked on that line since 11:30), so afterwards I take myself off to the desk to count then I get on the white golf cart since I have to go to the back to count stuff in the freezer.

*side note: first time I've driven the golf cart, so I was marveling about how wonderful it was-- it was a fairly joyless day so ANY simple pleasure I can take

Well I drive past the lines, going 'wheeee' loudly, so I didn't hear what was said. I say, "What the fuck, I earned this ride" so I took a few victory laps around the bins.

Then I park the golf cart, give it a pat and then head over to give my counts to Cheryl and Owen.

Only to be told by both Cheryl and Owen that when I was driving past, Michael StalSHIT said "Get to work"

They have no reason to lie to me, and being that I know PERSONALLY what a fucking pathological liar he is-- I know immediately that what they said was true.

So I go on a rampage, I can't believe that the King of Slowasses told ME to get to work, especially since at my slowest work pace, I am STILL faster then him. I am loud and I am not hiding the fact that I am completely and totally furious, because he needs to BUTT out of my life and focus on his own work; but hey-- maybe he wouldn't take those 20 min bathroom breaks every two hours (in addiction to regular break) if he didn't keep his CELLPHONE in his pocket the entire time-- hey nothing more fun then facebook on the shitter at work!

He comes up to me and vehemently denies saying it--- but I know him and I don't believe him for a second-- then I tell him to get out of my face. Michael refuses, insisting that he didn't say anything. That is when Owen says "Drop it"-- I mean, I have never heard my boyfriend sound so very menacing. Michael continued to, he wasn't stopping-- and Owen kept saying "Leave her alone" and "drop it". I believe without a shadow of a doubt if Supervisor Mike hadn't come by when he did-- there would of been a 5 ft 6 guy completely jumping and beating the shit out of a six foot dude, seriously-- my boyfriend was pissed and looked like he was about ready to go to war for me.

Since I was a bit frightened that Michael was going to be at my car-- Owen, Cheryl and I went to go talk to Cindy. Michael hung around away from us a little bit but then he gave up and went out to his own car to go home. And when I walked out with Owen, Michael did the first wise thing that I think he's ever done-- he actually left. Oh, I know he wanted to pursue the matter but I wanted to have nothing to do with him, I'd rather just ignore his existence like I usually do.

To all you who read through this; thank you-- I know it was long and somewhat negative. (You can also see why I just wanted the icon love last night)

On a happy note-- it's my friday! woohoo!

because the kids' bedrooms are too small (i.e. it wouldn't fit a queen-sized bed)

Which sucks because I was already arranging furniture in my head, and have plans for the front yard etc.

*sighs*

I've wanted to move out of this house since four years ago... There's not enough space for the kids to have their own space.

It's been a long time since any AO3 alerts turned up in my inbox. A bit of a bummer, since I was getting at least a "You've got kudos!" email pretty regularly, but it's not like I post regularly. It's also not like my memory or attention span is that great, so it would only occur to me every so often that I wasn't getting said emails.

Long story short, they've been getting sent to my spam folder for over a month. Over a month meaning, of course, that some of those emails have been deleted and I'll never get them back. Which should teach me not to neglect my spam folder for so long, if nothing else. (Should, mind you. Not necessarily will.)

On the bright side, my inbox on AO3 at least has all the comments that I've not been getting. Now I just have to work my way past the embarrassment at replying so late...

Maybe Bubblegum Bitch by Marina and the Diamonds?

I don't know if I'm just having a Good Day as far as anxiety is concerned, orrrrr if I've hit a "I've gone so far down that I've come out the other side and NOTHING CAN HAPPEN TO ME" stage in depression. Hm.

Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.

Then again, speaking practically, I don't actually care that much about the details, as long as this "take no shit, give no fucks, if anybody takes issue with me, they can suck it" mood sticks around for a few days.

Existing is so much more fun when I'm actually feeling confident.

We won't talk about work-- we just won't, because that is when I get angry and then I want to punch people in the face

Instead I will talk about how much I am enjoying "A Court of Wings and Ruin" by Sarah J. Maas.

I like her Aelin Galithenius series alright, I suppose; though some (most) of the characters don't resonate with me like the Court series. And I actually hated the first book when I read it, A Court of Thorns and Roses was not my most favorite because I didn't care for Tamlin, I didn't like Feyre (until things happened that made her a more interesting character) but I read the next book, and Sarah J. Maas rained down on me a sea of INTERESTING CHARACTERS (tm). I adored Mor, Amren, Cassian, Azriel and Rhysand, they were my squad goals right there, and then you got to see more of Feyre's sisters (whom also A++++), and that is quite simply a recipe for epic.

The Throne of Glass series was interesting but the characters for the most part-- Caleana was too cocky, I didn't really like Chaol, I didn't like her other significant other, her mate-- I did like Lysandra but only because I have a big fondness for bitchy bitches (*waves the Team Nesta flag*), and yeah, I did like the Blackbeaks, my favorite part of the entire book was that coven of witches.

But for me, a book hinges on interesting characters-- if a book doesn't have characters that I like (or enough of them), it falls flat.

Rome was saved for good characterizations.

Look at Twilight-- I disliked the main couple, but I did like the side characters and they were the only reason I kept listening to the audiobook when otherwise I would of been like "KILL THE BOOK WITH FIRE"-- so yes, I can say that Twilight has 'some' merit, not a lot but some; certainly not enough to think that a 20 year old werewolf imprinting on a 5 year old is fine-- ewww Stephanie Meyers, EWWWW!)

Now to start making some Sarah J. Maas icons!

How is everyone's week going?

Hopefully well!

Daina Translations

yami0204: why must you do this to me (owie)
[personal profile] yami0204
Copy and pasted from my LiveJournal:

Repository of attempted daina translations/adaptations. It's hard to wade through old dialects of Latvian that happen to also be dead dialects, but I'm gonna try it. My translations are my best interpretations of the text given, since some of the meanings are a bit lost to history. I'll put add as much detail as I can, including daina number, but this stuff is really hard to work through. Even with a searchable "English" database, it's hard to figure out where these things come from or what they're supposed to be about. Not to mention that my grasp of the Latvian language is rudimentary at best.

So.

Enjoy my struggle.

✿ This long weekend was warm and sunny (except for the start of it) and I walked So Much and I am exhausted. But, like, in a good way. Exhausted and relaxed. (Blarrrgh I don't want to go back to work tomorrow. Oh well.)

✿ My mint seeds have finally sprouted! Hooray! I expect that once it catches, it'll grow all right. The rosemary still isn't doing anything. If it continues to not do anything, I guess I'll end up using that pot for some of the pansies I started growing earlier. They'll need to be separated eventually.

✿ I've started my letter for [community profile] raremaleslashex. I never really know what to request until I sit down to do that. This will be my first time requesting original fiction, how exciting.... so far the slots are SSSS, aRTD, and Original; undecided what to put in the fourth one. Hetalia or Year in Hereafter, probably. (I wish YiH weren't so hard to prompt for. I'd probably be happy with anything, and my brain refuses to come up with something specific. "I dunno, just gimme something with Sakari macking on Jaako, that'd be A++" does not a good prompt make, ahaha.)

✿ The State of Yuu recently: busy as fuck on workdays, and then when I'm not working, I hardly want to be on the internet at all. I have been quiet lately, and this is precisely why. (You guys are nice and all, but... sunliiiight...)

Alright, I've poured myself a glass of wine and I'm raring to go.

House update: We went through the general inspection and there are a lot of really 'little' things wrong with the house-- a few things that could add up over time, and we've requested that the seller take care of those first. It is a 'flipped' house so there are some things that we are surprised that wasn't addressed-- a few plugs that do not work-- poor insulation on the deck steps right by the back door-- we have gotten the process going on the home loan but here's hoping that those things get worked out. The stuff worries Owen more then it does me-- or rather the cosmetic stuff, but I figure that there are things that I shouldn't worry about-- things that will have no bearing on how the house runs and/or will not be detrimental to the house in the long run.

I can still see myself in the house but Owen is a capricorn and worries easily-- so who knows.

We went to Meijers and I bought myself the new Sarah J. Maas book, "Court of Wings and Ruin"-- I prefer it before the other series of hers (blasphemy-- I know, but then it hinges on how I like the main characters, and I like Feyre and Rhysand better then I do the main characters in the Throne of Glass series.) I am reading the book now but I know it's gonna be slow going with everything that's going on in my life-- here is to finishing the book before the summer starts!

I watched Harlots and I think that was the season's end; I hope that it comes back for another season because it was really good and I think that those storylines really did come to a head and wrap up but I also see that there are a lot of open endedness so that they can find new things to write about in the series.

I finished the plotline for FFXIV, and while I don't have precisely what I want in terms of how I want to go into Stormsblood, I figure that I am close enough to being optimally geared up in SMN that I can make the direct crossover and it won't be much of a stretch to do so (it's hard running )

Okay that's all the update for today-- and yet I still haven't finished my glass of wine!

[personal profile] alwaysbeenasmiler
I've never done one of these-- so bear with me! Taken from [community profile] thefridayfive

1. How did you name your pets?

L.I.T.A and D.I.T.A came from this crack conversation myself and an ex-boyfriend had regarding his brother-- where this cybernetic kitty is created to take him out-- complete with lasers for eyes, machete claws and a stinger attached to the tail which emits highly toxic poison-- D.I.T.A which stands for "Death Incarnate To All". Then when I met D.I.T.A-- I decided I wanted her sister too and thus came "Love Incarnate To All"

Little did I know that their personalities would switch, L.I.T.A is the one most likely to kill someone while D.I.T.A is a little cuddlebutt. Generally pets are named after the current addictions of the moment, or some sort of crack theory.

2. Poirot or Miss Marpel?

Miss Marpel-- because girl power

3. Do you have a FB account too?

I do-- it is Here for all interested (feel free to add me, as most of you I know are pretty liberal and won't trigger me-- yeah, that's a pretty way of saying that for the most part I trust my flist).

4. Books - hardcover or paperback

All depends-- if it's a book that I seriously need RIGHT NOW (I am looking at you "Court of Wings and Ruin"; damn you and your stupid cliffhanger at the end), then I will cave and buy the hardcover-- but generally I prefer paperback)

5. Mobile(cell phone): Windows/Android or Apple?

I have an Android-- I wouldn't know what to do with an iphone even if I did have one (though Owen has an iphone and will ask me how to do things on his phone and I am like "Oh gods, I don't know how to apple!")

Well, the semester's over. I turned in all my paperwork, attended some last few meetings and did a mini presentation, got 95% on my take-home probabilistic programming exam, and am now just waiting on my summer offer letter (which lets me get paid to work). Z's gotten his already, so I was getting kind of nervous, but I just checked my email and last year I didn't get it until early June. Not time to panic yet, I guess.

So! Summer! It hit 90 yesterday and today! The daffodils and dogwood are fading! I now have time for working on my million WiPs and to read books now! I impulse bought an ebook about what not to do when writing historical fiction because it was only $4; it was very geared towards western Europe, but at least it's upfront about that. And I don't think it really needed a whole chapter on how the hell English peer titles work - it was so specific - but all the talk about how people used names did give me an idea for something in my f/f historical fantasy work. Now back to Tibetan history.

I am most of the way through page four of the Japanese article I'm reading - I was sidetracked for a bit by picking up more context sentences for kanji I was having difficulty with, as it turns out that academic Japanese tends to use a lot of kanji I just have never learned. But page 2: 35 sentences/fragments into Mnemosyne, down from 48 on page one. Progress! There were even a few sentences that I could almost entirely read! Page 3: 29, with an entire paragraph I could more or less understand. Of course, it had to be the one about Searle's godsdamn Chinese Room :| I see in a couple of pages I will finally get to neural networks.

Oh, and Z got a cat! I don't have any very good pictures, but he is an orange tabby and his name is Koro. He is still kind of nervous but also cute and he loves attention and playing with the string I braided for him. I actually got to cat-sit him his first weekend in Z's place - kitty was supposed to come home earlier, but delays happened because of the landlord not getting in contact with the adoption people to confirm Z and his roommates could have a cat, and then they had to leave for a thing, so. I spent most of it working on my exam in the living room and taking breaks to go feed Koro treats in the bathroom while he hid in the shower curtain. Thankfully, he's come out of his shell a lot since then and Z says that he likes to follow people around the house.

Because I'm too tired for a proper entry -

✿ I went mucking around in the woods yesterday! I saw three deer! And found a trail that goes deep down to the stream! And did some bushwhacking, and scouted out the general location of a geocache, but since I had neither a pen nor swag on me, I decided not to prod for the exact spot. (Note to self, go back there this weekend. ...And wear gloves. And possibly thicker trousers. ROSEBUSHES EVERYWHERE, I WILL NEVER BE RID OF THEM.)

✿ Apparently when given the choice between nervewracking highway driving practice or parking practice on small roads, I'll choose the highways. Blurgh. WHY do people let their kids play on the road?! And WHY does nobody drive the speed limit here?!

✿ I'm working stacked shift all through this week, and all through the next (with the exception of Victoria Day). I'm gonna die. (When will this fic get written? WHO KNOWS)

✿ Pokemon Go victory: I FINALLY HAVE A BLISSEY. And I earned the 1000KM badge! It's too bad that the badges don't stack; I'd like to earn another one, for another 1000KM. ;) But at least it tracks how much you've walked even after you get gold. And ALSO I finally found an opportunity to stick a pokemon into the gym near my workplace, the one with low turnover - which means that I get 10 coins every day without having to do anything at all. It's glorious.

✿ I have discovered that our library has some of Sapkowski's Witcher novels, so I might have to pick some up this weekend, see how I like them. My mate Tik says she found them kind of blah, but I can't not give them a try, because holy shit, medieval fantasy Poland. I need more of that in my life. :V And apparently Netflix is going to be doing a Witcher tv series? Which is surprising - and I admit that I raised eyebrows a little - but maybe it will be good? Or at least better than the Polish TV series, which I am informed is terrible (of the "let's pretend this never happened" sort, not the "so bad it's good" sort).

Well house update--

We submitted an offer, and it was accepted! So that lovely house is gonna be ours!

This month me and Owen play at being adults, this will be interesting (Who am I kidding, I will be playing at being an adult-- Owen is a capricorn and thereby born old)

I NEED TO NAME THIS HOUSE--

I also have to do a wiccan cleansing so I'll probably go to one of the pagan stores in Louisville and buy stuff to do that. If anyone is pagan and has a cleansing spell, send it my way!

I have to scan this. Which means removing all of these staples.

Whyyyy meeee... No wonder work has been such a pain in the ass lately; this is a prime example of the fiddly shit that I keep needing to fix before I can actually get any work done.

...I hope you all are having a pleasant Tuesday. :V
