Kristy: I just read that thing you sent me. (in reference to something I'd pasted in the chat window like half an hour before)
Me: Dude, that was like...
Kristy: Forever ago, yeah, I know. I was, you know, working.
Me: Work? What is this you speak of...?
Kristy: MY job consists of more than just leaving voicemails.
William: Oooh, ouch.
Me: Meh, it's true.
Kristy: Hey, she's way meaner to me than I am to her. She deserves everything she gets.
Me: Well, you're an easy target, at seven foot three.

In other news, I get to see Sam in...about five hours and forty minutes. Give or take. But who's counting? XD

The tech support guys were joking around, but Frank/Pancho just said something rather profound, I think.

"I'd rather be laughed at than be ignored."

I can so see that in play in my own life. "Sarah, you're a dork." "Yeah, Nico, but admit it, you wouldn't have it any other way. I wouldn't be interesting."
rena_librarian: (Default)
Sarah says:
so I went spelunking yesterday
The Awesome Kristy© says:
i hate you
Sarah says:
o_O
The Awesome Kristy© says:
EVERYONE BUT ME GETS TO GO
Sarah says:
well, if you're going to hate me, hate Nico and Brandon, too
Sarah says:
it wasn't that impressive, really
Sarah says:
Nico and Brandon found the cave a couple of days ago but for whatever reason didn't go inside
Sarah says:
there were two tunnels, we went down the left one first, and it only went back as far as from, like, here to the staircase
Sarah says:
so then Brandon tried the other one, because you had to get down and crawl to go through it, and it went back even less, lol
The Awesome Kristy© says:
lol
Sarah says:
if it had opened up at the back to something more to explore Nico and I would've gone back there, but at the farthest back point we could still see his feet, lol
The Awesome Kristy© says:
hahahaha
Sarah says:
and he said HE could barely squeeze through the opening that he found, so Nico and I would never have had a prayer


Sarah says:
my "home keys" aren't asdf jkl;, they're more like asdfjop'
Sarah says:
DAMMIT, I was going to bring masking tape and label my keyboard for Dvorak
The Awesome Kristy© says:
you fial
The Awesome Kristy© says:
lololol
The Awesome Kristy© says:
lail*
The Awesome Kristy© says:
fail
The Awesome Kristy© says:
:(
Sarah says:
*points and laughs*
The Awesome Kristy© says:
--crying emote--
Sarah says:
lol
Sarah says:
my job
Sarah says:
it makes me happeh
The Awesome Kristy© says:
why?
Sarah says:
because funny shit like that happens all the time, lol


...and as I was typing that, Tech Support Joe told someone "I don't need another angry customer calling me and telling me that...I killed their mother, or whatever." I asked if someone really said that to him (giggling like mad, lol) and he said yeah, but that's because he was shooting at her. In Iraq. Lol.

Convo overheard from the next row of cubicles:

Woman: Ooh, a red phone. I really want a red phone. Is that one of the slidey-uppies or is it...?
Man: No, it's one of the flippy-opens.

And I work for a software company. Lol.
rena_librarian: (Default)
It'd be easier now that I can post them in realtime, after all.

My cubicle is in the row next to the one row of tech support. Tech-support Joe (as opposed to...the other Joe? Lol. There's another one here, and he seems to be in charge of outgoing mail and tool guarding. I have no idea what his official job is, just that the walls of his cube are 8 feet tall) just walked by and said:

"Blah blah blah, they all sound like Charlie Brown's mother." ~~on people who call for tech support

X3

Random interesting link of the day: The World, at night

I had a copy of that photo back in 2000, when it first surfaced on the net. Someone's made it into a Google Maps-style map. Sweet. (And if you go to the main site, there's a similar map but it details what parts of the world are in sunlight and nighttime, in realtime.)
rena_librarian: (Default)
*phone rings, Taco Bell ringtone: "The Sweet Escape" X3*
S (me): Hello?
N(ico): *TB noise in background* Hey, are you busy?
S: If I was busy, I wouldn't have answered my phone.
N: Touché. So, hey, I just wanted to let you know, the word of the day is Mennonite.
S: ...Mennonite? *visions of people who dress Amish but use computers pops into head*
N: Yeah, a religion where the main practitioners are women by day, you know, women... (TB-related distraction in background, something about the DT window)
S: ...Yeah?
N: Women by day, and Mennonite!
S: *snerk* Men a' night...ha ha...you're so funny.
N: Yeah. So I get off at 4 today and close tomorrow, so give me a buzz when you get off work.
S: Yeah.
N: Ohhkaybye.
S: Ohhkaybye.

...screw converting to Quakerism, Nico, you should be Mennonite. According to you it's a religion full of drag queens. XD

And yes, ohhkaybye is all one word, after which you cannot say anything else. Ever.

OMG SQUEE!

Where to start? Work sucks, but the cooler weather (jacket in the morning! Yay!) is helping me cope. I was in back drive on Tuesday and came |--| that close to having a good day.

I made Candise (the last person left at Taco Bell that I really hate to be around) laugh. It started raining and I said, "Well, so much for driving topless." She gave me the most incredulous look--then remembered I drive a convertible. XD Maybe there's something to Nico's "Kill 'em with kindness" theory because ever since then she's been almost tolerable. ^_^

Ahhh...the fair's in town, that's all everyone at work wants to talk about. Including me, lol. Because, you see, I said to myself: "Why don't I ask Chris to go with me? Because, you see, that's not a date, that's not too forward or anything..." So he was there today and all, and it took me most of the day to work up the guts and find an opportune moment.

At one point I was sitting at the bar wiping off the menus (they get sticky and get the papery stuff from the peanuts on them and all) and I looked around and realized I hadn't seen Chris in several minutes. I waited a few more, and he never walked by or anything, and then someone said he was gone, and I started kicking myself mentally. I was so disappointed--mostly in myself for not speaking up sooner.

But then--oh joy!--he came back. Whoever said he was "gone" meant "gone on break." Major flood of relief, of course.

So then I asked him what time he got off (five) and went about finishing up my side work (today it was restrooms, which, barring a major mess happening, I usually leave until after I quit taking tables), and after I clocked out I went to the bar (where Chris was sitting) and was waiting for him to finish his conversation (so as not to interrupt), and one of the other waitresses said she was going to the fair tomorrow and asked if she'd see him...

...and he said maybe, but probably not.

So when I got the opportunity I asked why, and he said he couldn't afford it, and I was all, "That sucks..." and then something happened, someone yelled for him (he was still on the clock at this point, of course). So he went off and I waited a moment, got myself a drink, and then went over to where he was sweeping, and I said, "I was going to say that sucks because I was going to ask you to go with me."

And he asked, "Well, how much is it?"

I said I didn't really know, we talked over the price, and he's like, "Well, I could give you my number, and you could call me at five."

OMG! So I grabbed a napkin and the pen out of my apron and he gave me his number (which is already programmed into my phone, thanks) and asked if it was his cell phone (yes) and told him I'd call at five.

It took a bit of doing to find the prices of everything (you'd think they'd have it posted at the gate, or a website, but no, you have to call), but I did, and called him at five. He said it was still too much and he really couldn't do it, and just as I'm trying to find the courage to throw a "maybe some other time, then?" into the conversation, he says: "But you know, I was thinking, if this didn't work, maybe we could get together next weekend and go see a movie and have dinner or something."

*ELATION*

So I readily agreed, but then was like, "Well, wait, I usually work all day on weekends, so maybe a sometime during the week? A Wednesday maybe?" And he said that would work too.

So...I have a tentative date, details to be worked out when I work with him on Friday.

OMG! (Now all I have to do is not screw it up this time!)

(Is it just me, or do I use way more creative punctuation and parentheses when I'm excited?)

Laiken: In other (less important, no offense ^_-) Steak House news, I was going to tell you that on Friday when I worked I used a ticket book that had Jodi's name on it. And then I actually met her for the first time today, and I think she's a really evil bitch...JUST KIDDING! She told me to tell you that, though. XD (Well, she was kind of curt this morning, but she was in a hurry and she was super nice later, so that was okay.) Later in the day, when we weren't busy, I asked, "Don't you have a sister named Andi?" And she was all, "Um, yeah, how did you know?" So of course I told her I was friends with you ("Andi's friend Laiken") and she knew who you were and all, called you a cousin then explained that you're not really but may as well be, lol. And she told me something that surprised the heck out of me, and I don't want to post it, but I'm emailing you because I was so surprised I can't figure out if she was BS-ing me or not. (Or at least I'm emailing you if your email address is available on your LJ profile, lol.)

And that all being said, when I log off in about an hour, I'm headed to the fair. Because goshdarnit, I missed it last year because I was working, and I've been jonesing for an adrenaline rush. I'm trying to talk Nico into going to Celebration City with me sometime (there's an interesting thought, Nico meeting Shelly, lol), but the finances for either of us to be able to do that are probably a couple of months in the future. (Unless, Shelly, your family has season passes they'd be willing to loan...? Or something?) So I'm going. We shall see if I run into anyone--Craig from Taco Bell is going every night from what I understand, lol.

Which reminds me of a work wit:
Dennis: Me and Craig are going to the fair. We're going to ride rides. Maybe his leg will fly off!
(Which, if you know Craig, is funny...because he has a prosthetic leg. And Dennis can get away with saying it because they're best friends.)

So, I'm going to stop and enjoy cloud nine for a while--later, people!
rena_librarian: (Default)
Someone left a flyer at work (you'd think that the lack of any kind of bulletin board would tip people off to the fact that we don't post them, lol) and it was on a really bright piece of paper. Nico picked it up and I was all, "WOW, that's yellow!" At home, this remark would have tipped people off to the fact that I held the opinion that it was a very bright and obvious shade, but apparently at work this makes me sound stupid, because Nico proceeded to fold it up, write on it, and hand it to me.

I'm here, having fun. Played more Barbie tonight than I have in the last ten years combined... O_O

So on the way here we stop to get taco shells, because we're having Mexican food. I sit at the counter not five mintues after I get here and I'm watching Jason in the kitchen, and what does he do but pull out a big plastic bowl...

...of PICO.

OMG. I can't ever get away from it! GAAAH!
rena_librarian: (Default)
WORK WITTICISMS!


Me: *standing at counter waiting for order*
Sara (L.): *over mic* Order #365, please, order 365..."

Nico: This bean burrito is bean, no burrito...

Nico: You have some updog on your chin.
Me: Some what?
Nico: Updog, right there...
*several moments of exchange, me asking where, Nico insisting I missed it*
Me: *frustrated* WHAT IS UPD-- *gets it and cracks up*

Rachel: *sticks new scrubby pad in Steve's face*
Steve: Oh, my toothbrush!

JoJo: *uses scoop in wrong pan*
Nico: You dirty cross-contaminater, you!

Nico, Frank, and I: *have discussion about the ugly uniforms Taco Bell had before having the purple ones, end with conclusion that designers of old uniforms were definitely not gay because they had NO fashion sense*
Me: Yup, they were straight.
Frank: Not necessarily.
Me: Huh?
Frank: For example, I'm not straight.
Me: *utter confusion*
Frank: I'm not homosexual, but I'm not straight. *taps temple with finger*
Me: Ahhh.

I'm in most of these...I feel egotistical now...if that wasn't a word before, it is now.

The auction was interesting last night--the power went out about an hour and a half in, so we all ended up going home. (It was only out a few seconds, but our tower took a direct lightning hit and we had no more internet with which to WORK the auction, so we decided to call it a night and come back tonight.)

Free pizza tonight! WOOT!

The other night I was working on something for school (I don't even remember what) and I was typing "samples" and typo'd it as "smaples." This amused me. If I hated Canadians I would start using that as an insult in a punnish sort of reference to their flag--"those smaples!" would mean, more or less, "those d**n Canadians!" But of course, the snag is that I <3 Canadians. *huggles Kat and Hobbity*

Witness my mad MS Paint skillz! I made Shelly an avatar! But since she, like, never reads this anymore, and since her heart races for a different Josh these days (her RL boyfriend) I thought I'd post this in case some other Josh Holloway fan stumbles through.

Someone who is better at making avvys and can animate them should make one that starts out: "Fly Oceanic!" then shows the Oceanic logo, then says, "Earn free HEAD trips!" then shows a bunch of people running from various things, then ends with the Lost logo. Lol.

I made a PowerPoint for Fine Arts: Visual! Go me! Sadly, you know where I learned to USE MS PowerPoint? ...from watching Shelly edit her "Top 15 Guys" list. XD But hey, it paid off!

Poor, poor Van Gogh. (I researched him as part of this PowerPoint.) He was a genius (I have Starry Night as my email background ^_^) and yet he had such a sad life, I really just want to hug him and tell him it'll be okay. (Yeah, okay, I know he's dead. But you know what I mean.) I want to adopt him. (I'm seriously thinking of starting a list of people I have adopted--Locke, Van Gogh...)

I still hate that class. Mrs. Bailey: "Half of life is following directions, have you noticed that?" AARRRRRRRGH. So narrow-minded! So disorganized! *screams*

Okay. Okay. Accentuate the positive. Random quotes time!

  • "These are the three mantras of Biology: Energy cannot be created or destroyed, there are no T's in RNA, and Dry is king." --Dr. Dry, in lecture one day
  • "She sells seashells on eBay!" --Nico
  • "Luge is the only sport where the winner is called the luger..." --Peter (a lab partner) during a "meeting" where we "worked on our presentation"

So anyway. Everyone on the planet (writers especially) should read Eats, Shoots, and Leaves. Even I actually got more picky about punctuation since reading it. ^_^ Like the sign hanging in every classroom at school:

NO
Food or Drink
Allowed in
this Room.
Absolutely
NO
Exceptions.





(Of course it's centered IRL.) What's with the capitalizations? It's a Capitalizer Run Amok! Gack!

You know you're obsessed with LotR when...you see a car labeled "LTZ" and the first thing that you think is: "Lurtz!" XD

I have to be at the auction in 20, so this randomness fit is over. Thank you for listening.

FREE PIZZA!
