Help me out peeps. I'll be getting my new tattoo in a few days, and I can't decide which font I want to use. I like them all, but I'm leaning towards the first.

So...I went and got myself a tattoo on Saturday. I love it! Finally posting pictures since the swelling and redness has mostly gone away.

I'm really, really saddened by his death. I spent my formative years watching him and Bam and the rest of the guys act a fool for my entertainment. You were my favorite, Random Hero. RIP

I just watched Steve Carell's last episode of The Office.

I'm not crying, it's just been raining on my face.

So, I've actually had things to post about the last couple of weeks. Surprised? But everytime I tried to post, LJ was being a bitch-face.

First off, Mom had surgery two Wednesdays ago. Surgery went well, but then she ended up getting an infection. Fairly normal happenings from what I understand. She was admitted back into the hospital for 2 days while they got her sorted out. She's out, and doing well. Still very tired, but that's to be expected.

Our dryer broke, so now we have to go to the creepy laundromat in town that smells like the inside of someone's asshole. No lie. Getting ready to go in there in a few hours actually. Pray for me. Ugh.

Work has been going about the same. Apparel did get a new assistant manager about two months ago. So, that's taken my stress level down quite a few notches. Me and the old assistant DID. NOT. GET. ALONG. You think she'd be a bit nicer to me considering I have quite a bit of dirt on her, but whatever.

Finished up season three of Sons of Anarchy. Good God in Heaven. This show. I fucking LOVE IT! If you have not ever watched it, I HIGHLY reccommend it. I think the thing that I love most about this show is the fact that even though most of the main characters are not blood related, they are a FAMILY. No one fucks with a member of the club without serious retribution. Considering I have quite a few issues with my dad's side of the family, this really hit home for me. Because for the most part, the people that I consider my family are not blood relatives. To quote Bobby from Supernatural : "Family don't end with blood." Speaking of SOA, does anyone know where I can get screencaps? I'm itching to make icons...

That's about all I've got right now. How have you all been? I miss talking to everyone. I'm mostly on Twitter or Tumblr these days. Feel free to come visit me over there. Username is the same! :)

"Dear Mr. Sawyer, You don't know who I am but I know who you are and I know what you done. You had sex with my mother and then you stole my dad's money all away. So he got angry and he killed my mother and then he killed himself, too. All I know is your name. But one of these days I'm going to find you and I'm going to give you this letter so you'll remember what you done to me. You killed my parents, Mr. Sawyer."

Just wanted to throw an update up, and wish all of you a very Merry and Happy Holidays! Off to work in a few hours to do the post-Christmas conversion. Joy.

Pics of the Stef Christmas haul to be posted sometime tomorrow!
Two updates in two days. Has hell frozen over? Possibly.

I had the worst case of the Mondays today. Let me tell you about it. I was due at work this morning at 7am. What time did I wake up? 6:20. Keep in mid that I have a 20+ minute drive depending on traffic/weather. Fun times. Did make it to work on time though. Don't ask me how I managed that.

Also, I woke up with a sore throat, itchy ears, sinus pressure, and general contempt for the world and everyone in it. Got to work and found out that we had had a surprise visit on Saturday, and that the douche that "walked" the store said that apparel was the worst he had ever seen. Blah, blah, blah. I know I touched on all the problems at work in my post yesterday, so I don't really want to get into all that again. But I will say this: I do the best I can possibly do on a daily basis. If these people won't get their heads out of their asses and hire some (decent) help...not my problem. They can eat a bag of dicks.

About to pass out. Took some NyQuil. Bring on the crazy nightmares.

Hey all! I'm updating from my bright and shiny new laptop! Walmart was having a really good deal on a fully loaded Toshiba laptop, so...Merry Christmas to me! Best part? It was put on my Walmart charge account, so it's ZERO interest for 18 months. Yes. Payments. Good deal.

In other news, work has been a BITCH lately. I cannot deal with the utter stupidity of upper management. Our store is ridiculously short staffed. And the warehouse has been sending us tons of stuff. Do you think that we could hire some people? Nope. So all of us are running ourselves ragged. I cannot tell you how many times in the last month that I've had to work 5-2 or some other crazy ass shift just to play catch-up. Ugh, It's frustrating as hell. And I am wiped out when I get home.

So, how have you all been? I miss talking to all you guys, but until work calms down a bit, I'm sure I'll have very little online time. In case I don't post again before all the festivities: HAVE A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY!!!

I don't know about you, but I'll be celebrating Festivus on Thursday. I've already put up the aluminum pole. It requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting.

Hey all, I'm still alive. Been busy with RL stuff the last few weeks. Working retail during the holidays sucks. But, I did survive another Black Friday. And so did everyone else I came into contact with. LOL

In other news, I am now hooked up with AOL instant messenger, so if you all have an account let me know and I'll add you!

So, I got the results of my blood test. I am mono free. I have no idea what's wrong with me though. I am feeling better. Still tired as hell, but not quite as achey. I go to the doctor on Tuesday, and I'm gonna ask him for a release from my LOA so I can go back to work on Wednesday. I'm getting quite bored being at home all day long (even though I do need the rest).

I've read 2 books in the last week. And I need all my fellow bookworms to rec me some of their current favorites. Doesn't matter if it's a standalone or a new series. Rec away. quidditchkiss has already recommended The Hunger Games trilogy, and I'll be checking that out once my Amazon order comes in.

A hot shower is calling my name. Later peeps!
12 October 2010 @ 12:08 pm
I've been sickly (and off work) for a week now. Doctor has ordered large amounts of bedrest. I have no problem with this right now. I feel like I've been beaten with a large croquet mallet. Or something less ridiculous. I don't know. Head is loopy from medication.

I woke up at the ass crack o' dawn this morning to go to the hospital and get blood drawn for testing. Doctor is thinking I have mono (will find out for sure sometime this afternoon). And if so, I'm about a week into a 3-4 week illness. Yay. I need to get better soon. I don't want to have to use up all my sick and vacation time at work.

He also suggested drinking Gatorade, which I absolutely LOATHE. BRB, attempting to choke down some grape-flavored HELL.

Cheer me up, peeps!

Dear God in Heaven. I am FREEZING. It's 43 degrees out. It's time to turn the heat on. I tried to touch the thermostat earlier and almost got murdered. Exaggerate? Who, me? Never. JUST LET ME TURN THE GODDAMN HEAT ON!!!!!!!1

So I did what any sane person would do when faced with such sub-Arctic temperatures. I put three layers of clothes on, and am drinking a HUUUUGE cup of hot chocolate. In your face, Mom.

In other news, a couple of the girls at work and I are talking about going to Florida sometime in the spring. Namely, to Orlando to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If this actually happens, ya'll will hear me screaming from your respective states. (as xmaidelx was kind enough to point out, if you live in Florida, you will most likely bleed from your ears from my ridiculous screaming/flailing. I apologize beforehand for this terrible fate that will befall you.) Just sayin'.

01 October 2010 @ 07:14 pm
I'm about ready to do a rewatch! I haven't done one since the finale aired. I think I'm loooong overdue. What say the rest of you? Interested?

Ugh. Woke up with a sore throat from HELL and a runny nose. Dear allergies, DIE IN A FIRE. No, wait. DIE IN ALL THE FIRES.

On the bright side, Amazon has the first season of Community on sale for $17.99. Boom. Ordered.

19 September 2010 @ 09:40 pm
My freaking DVR just crapped out. The day before all the new shows come back. What is my life? RAAAAAAAAGE. Unamused Severus is unamused, and will also choke a bitch.

Also, welcome to new friend stillxmyxheart! We'll get along quite well, methinks!

Hello, my lovelies! How are you all? I've actually been pretty good the last few weeks. With the exception of working at Wal-mart. This is how I feel during the hours I spend there:

This job is really getting to me ya'll. To the point where I've been in the management office twice in the last week bawling my guts out. Either my anti anxiety/depression medicine needs a dosage increase, or I've just totally had it with Wal-mart in general. The feeling has been building for months now, ever since I had to take on two additional departments. All because the people that run Home Office are a bunch of dickbags. And when I say "Home Office", I'm making an allusion to the episode of Angel where the Home Office of Wolfram & Hart = literal hell. Seriously.

Dear Walmart,

We're so short-staffed anyway, but when they condense us down even further and do not give us any help my head spins around like that bitch from The Exorcist. No lie. I see red like you would no believe. Or when they pull us to work in other departments so we can't get our work done, and then yell at us because our departments fall behind. Fucking GRRRRR.

This is what that particular situation feels like:

I think I'm done making my point.

In other news, I've been on a diet for the last 5 weeks or so. I've lost 20 pounds. I am so goddamned proud of myself, you have no idea. Allow me to do "The Dance of Joy."

13 August 2010 @ 07:21 pm
Ummmm. BOUGHT. The only way this shirt could have been better was if it were David Tennant, but Matt Smith is an awesome second choice. His portrayal of The Doctor has really impressed me!

And also this, because it makes me laugh:

Hola! Long time, no post. I'm not dead, just super busy with work. Inventory is 8 days away. Right now, if we keep this momentum, we'll be ready with everything. Key word being if. In other news, I've been on a diet for the last 15 days, and I've lost 10lbs so far. Yay! Feeling good, pants are fitting better, stress level is down (many thanks to the makers of Celexa). Good times. I have an interview tomorrow. Job is an administrative assistant position at a local dentist's office. Only about 5 minutes away from my house instead of the usual 20 plus is a bonus. Fingers crossed everyone! Hope you all are well. Miss talking to you all. I'm on Tumblr and Twitter most of the time, so if you have either of those, feel free to add me. My username is the same on both!

Also have a new layout courtesy of soulpoems!

Depression. Have been in a funk all day. One of the girls who works with me lost her mom today. Man, do I ever know what she's going through right now. Brings back memories from about this time last year. Been thinking about Nicole and her family all day, which naturally, reminds me of dad. I don't even know, guys...

Cheer me up, please. I need it.

LOST finale tonight. I'm so excited...I'm so scared. Allow me to display my affection for this show through gifs and macros. And just to be clear, although I think Matthew Fox is pretty, I am NOT a fan of Jack. Feel free to share your favorite gifs/macros and thoughts!

So, in all the hype surrounding the end of LOST, I started a rewatch. Why? Was off work a few days last week due to back troubles and decided I wanted to start the madness again.

Now, I fully understand that I won't be able to work my way through the whole series by the 23rd. But that's not going to stop me from giving it the old college try. (Sidenote: I've never been to college, so if I accomplish this monumental task it will be all the more impressive.)

Now, I know I have quite a few LOST fans on the flist, so my question to you is this:

Does anyone happen to have the LOST OSTs for Seasons 1-4 that they'd be willing to upload for me? Many thanks if you do!

Oh, and Terry O'Quinn should win a fucking Emmy this year! Just putting that out there into the universe.

I leave you with this:

When last I posted, the store was getting ready for a visit from the "big-wigs". Well, we had our visit, and for the most part, it was good. Our biggest opportunity was our backroom. Our backroom scorecard blows goats. For serious. Way too many hands in the pot IMHO. And now? Merchandise Supervisors aren't even allowed to be in our bins. How in the goddamn hell are we supposed to "know what we own." The only way we're allowed to work back there is if we use an instock team member's sign on. Nope. Not gonna happen. If I happen to screw up on something, that person gets coached. Not gonna be responsible for that. And the fact that our management team even condones that? Not cool. Eff Wal-mart.

Anyway. Mom and I have been working on our spare bedroom for the last few weeks. Getting it painted and whatnot. Was moving stuff around yesterday, and threw my back out. I have never been in this much pain in my life. I want to curl up and die, but it's hard since I can't even move without wanting to bawl. I'm loaded up on ibuprofen and Ben-Gay right now, and Mom went and got me some pain patches. I'm really hoping it feels a lot better tomorrow. Need to go to work. Place just falls apart when I'm not there to crack the whip.

Currently watching the Flyers getting their asses handed to them. Boys better pick it up. Just sayin'.

Hello, all! How have you been? Have the day off, so I'm trying to catch-up on some DVR. Watching the newest episode of Supernatural now. Can I just say how good this show has been this season? Wow. But this episode? Totally gross.

Back to work tomorrow. Big visit from higher-ups on Monday, so everyone is super stressed. I don't get it. Why do these people get so fucking crazy trying to get things ready only to be criticized like woah anyway? The higher-ups should come visit the store randomly to see how it actually runs from day-to-day. Then we'll see what's up.
First off, many thanks to those who sent birthday wishes my way! I had a fairly good day, considering that I was at work for the majority of it.

Best thing to happen Tuesday? The Madonna episode of Glee. I've been jamming to Like A Prayer for 2 days straight. It was my favorite Madonna song anyway, and the cast did it complete justice, IMO.

And because I'm curious:

i've always wanted to tell you
