As a followup to the MacGyver video, here's a much more unlikely mashup. Enjoy!

I already have so much stuff on my DVR that I haven't gotten around to watching yet. Revenge, Prime Suspect, Big Bang Theory, Community, Ringer, I haven't watched last week's The Soup yet... Jeez. I'm going to watch Community before bed tonight and hopefully the rest over the weekend.

New girl, S, continues to do well. She's so quite, not very outgoing but she's nice and she's learning. That's the best thing we can ask for at this point.

My mom is taking a course to get the paperwork that says she knows everything she already does from on the job training over 25 years and she's applying to get EI to pay for it (since she hasn't trained for anything in almost as long as she was at her last company back home). It seemed like she was approved yesterday but today she got a call from whoever is reviewing her app and was informed that they had called her last (only) employer since she moved out here and that person told them that she had quit the job due to medical reasons and said something about her inability to handwrite (my mom has terrible handwriting and I think she's embarrassed by it so she has to write slow to write even semi-legible, it's just who she is), etc. So this could potentially have her application rejected so she's pretty damn pissed. Because that's NOT why she quit the job. She quit because her boss was a fucking psychopath who demeaned her, gossiped about EVERYONE, was rude and expected miracles out of her staff. She has ONE person who has stayed with the company for 10 years. She's had about five personal assistants in the past 2 years and the last one only stayed two weeks.

We're hoping that the woman will understand from what my mom implied that this woman is crazy and there's a reason why mom left the job. How pathetic do you have to be in the adult phase in your life to be so deluded and vicious that you could ruin someone else's chance at excelling at life. I mean, it's one thing to not actively support someone for whatever reason, but to blatantly lie in a way that could take away the chance for someone to do something so basic in life... jesus.

I also have ANOTHER med to try to help me sleep at night. Woo.

Going to start posting some stuff to my new icon community, [ profile] rockstar_pink this weekend including, hopefully, some The Secret Circle icons. Come check it out and watch if you like what you see!

I am exhausted but I had to stay up to watch the premiere of Sons of Anarchy. I didn't sleep well last night and I was pretty busy today at work because it's just me and my boss, aS H is gone and AD has taken vacation. If anything it should make the week go by faster!

H, however, continues to haunt us with her errors. We had to write off a memoriam and I felt SO DAMN BAD for the lady because she was so emotional about it as it was her son and five years. I don't know what happened but it was just all wrong. When my boss came to the counter and asked, "Who did it?" I just looked at her and she said, "I don't even need to ask." She also somehow booked an ad into classifieds and retail, but luckily we caught it when the people clearing the ads for tomorrow asked about it and I was like, "Um, it's here." The money was attached to our ad so it would have used up lineage and would have had to be written off. OY VEY, YO!

AS is also trying to stir up shit again about the position in classifieds and is throwing H under the bus. She FB'd my boss and was trying to be conversational (using her kid as a means to talk to her!) but was just trying to get dirt and trying to get my boss to say mean things about H. I mean, we all think H is lovely as a person but, honestly, she's dumber than a sack of hammers. She was not cut out for this job. But we are NOT saying this to AS because that's all she needs. She doesn't realize that the position has been filled with a former employee of the news who won't be swayed by AS' deviousness. She flat out said in one of her messages that the news person had better be gone by March so she can come back. NOT GONNA HAPPEN!

The lesson in all this? Petty high school bullshit attitudes and mean girl mentalities aren't just magically grown out of. They stick with some people and make them mean, devious, nasty, dirty women.

In other, less dramatic and annoying news-- I have a new icon comm! [ profile] spuzz has parted ways with [ profile] morbid_girls after four years because our tastes are very different now and it's hard to be part of a "Girls" group when you're just a girl so I've created [ profile] rockstar_pink! Named after my new glittery nail polish (that's annoying as fuck, actually because glitter is SO DAMN HARD to get off your nails but this shit keeps chipping, ugh) and because I wanted a FUN name/look/everything. I love the layout and the banners and the colours. Ten years ago I was never a "pink" girl but now I apparently am VERY MUCH.

There's not a lot there just yet but I spent HOURS yesterday updating my Post Guide and re-linking broken icons and such and adding all the new stuff from the past motherfucking FOUR YEARS. This way I don't have to move any posts or anything. I want to try to make and/or post icons this week, too.

OH! And, I picked up Season 2 of Community on DVD, too! Whee!

Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions about them. Don’t cheat!

Want to know why you should be watching Community?

Watch this:

I have to go have dinner with my family now but I'd rather be doing just about anything at this very moment than that. Isn't that sad? *sigh*

I really need some Southland icons, goddamn.

I posted it to my tumblr, as well.

I'm watching the Community stop-animation Christmas episode. I dislike things like claymation. They freak me out. So I'm mostly listening, rather than watching. I love this show but not enough to get freaked out by it. :(

Shortest amount of time I've ever kept a layout, I believe. This one I haven't had time to customize but I had to change it because for some reason on the other one that I really liked the text kept going to the left, right off the layout so I couldn't see anything. I'd even stretched everything as far as it could go without me having to scroll horizontally but for some reason when I loaded it today it went right off the edge, moreso then I'd seen in the past couple days. Ugh.

It's STILL snowing. It hasn't been snowing constantly for a week but it's snowed every day for a week. We're not used to that here. The temps are -20 to -28 and the roads aren't any better right now. Sometimes I see proper road to drive on but a couple hours later there's been more snow and then a couple hours after that people have driven over it so much it's ice again. FUUUUUUUUCK.

Still haven't heard from student loan, either, so I'll have to call them tomorrow. Fuckers. My anxiety about it is hovering below the surface at the moment and I can think about it for a little bit without getting too worked up but then I start to dwell and then I start freaking out again. I don't want to go apeshit on them when I talk to them but I'm so far on the fucking edge right now that I don't know if I'll be able to keep it together without them leaving notes like, "psychotic" and "handle with care" in my file.

Can someone explain to me why there's this sudden need for the TSA to either a) take near-naked photos of you or b) molest you while flying? This is a serious question, I don't understand what prompted this new change. I knew the new scanners were coming but why the need to touch every part of my body now? I'm not planning on flying any time soon (see above, re: money, I has none) but I haven't heard if these new measures were prompted by something. Whenever I've flown I did the regular scanner, then the wand if needed and then, if they couldn't figure out why I was beeping, they'd pat me down and I was okay with that. So why the need to jump straight to the naughty places without reason? I honestly don't know which way I'd go, if given the option to do the new scanner or pat down now. I don't trust the supposedly safety of the images being taken not being leaked seeing as how they already have been but I don't want someone touching me all over without a few dinner dates first, either.

I hate those new holiday Futureshop commercials where people either open gifts or flyers or something and this weird cartoon red and white world flitters out to the took of someone taking a squeaky fart. They creep me out a bit, not going to lie.

And speaking of things that creep me out--the holiday episode of Community is going to be done in stop animation/claymation and I don't know if I'll be able to watch it. That shit seriously weirds me out and makes me feel uncomfortable. I think it's because they're close to being life-like but not and they're close to being animation, but they're not. Anyhow. I don't know.

summer_skin: (Twilight- (New Moon) Hold me)
--> There are two attractive young men helping my uncle tear the siding off the house. They have been working for a few days now. Today I came home to hear music coming from upstairs, where only I reside. In my room is now a GIANT hole where my window and wall WAS and instead was scaffolding, my uncle and the two aforementioned attractive young men. In my room/window/just outside. My room where I have a life-size standee of Bella, Jacob and Edward from new moon, a full garbage can and dirty underwear in the clothes basket.


Oh, and? I'm going to have plywood over the giant hole for possibly a few weeks. UGH.

--> Y'know, if you're going to crosspost icons and then not post teasers because of spoilers but half of your icons are facial close ups and completely unidentifiable from any other episode of the show... just don't. Post teasers.

--> We had a couple young people pass away so their obits were in our paper. They prompted my supervisor to ask us today what we thought we would look like in heaven. I said people would probably look like how they did when they were happiest in their lives. Which made me think about the concept of heaven and afterlife and I realized when I think about "after" it's a rather murky place. Not in feeling or to prompt fear but more as a waiting area. Not purgatory, just... kind of like waiting in line at some government office. Boring and tedious, than anything. And then I'll come back. I don't want to say be reincarnated because I'm not spiritual like that but I truly believe that I'll come back in my next life, and the next and etc, etc.

I can't say why I think this because I really don't know. It's just a feeling I have. And it pisses me off because, to be honest, I don't WANT to come back. I don't want to fade into non-existance or anything but the idea that I'm going to come back and have to relive things at this point seems so tiring.

There's no reason for writing this, I just wanted to record it for my own thoughts since it was a bit of a realization today. I believe that whatever people believe in is exactly what will happen for them in life/after life, so yeah.

--> Had some weirdness today over an email from a friend. It's something I've been trying to figure out how to deal with for a few months now but didn't realize I was still SO bothered by until he sent me a slap-dash email today. It brought all my kinda-anger back up so now I have to think about what I'm going to say to explain why I'm angry and how to do it in a way that doesn't make me seem crazy. Boys.

--> Started watching Community on Sunday night and finished first season Monday evening. LOVED IT! It was so funny! I lawled numerous times and enjoyed myself a lot. I'm also an episode into Modern Family, too, and I would be continuing it tonight if, like, I could go into my room and all.
