Can I add 'people who quit without any notice' to my list of MAJOR pet peeves? Please? One of the other women who works here just up and left without any notice at all, which is why I'm here at work on a Thursday afternoon when I would normally have this time off. In my jeans and Tevas, no less, since I didn't know I was gonna be here until about an hour or so ago, so I can't exactly work out... Rarr.
So! In an effort to stay positive, here are some things that have made me happy lately...
Before I got called into to work today, I was spending the day with Kat and her brand new, 8-week-old, as-yet-unnamed-but-we're-rooting-for-Tristan absolute charmer of a tri-color collie pup. He's just darling and fluffy and wee, and him plus a tennis ball = instant entertainment like you wouldn't believe. He spent half the time we were with him absolutely conked out from all the playing he was doing during the other half. I've needed a doggie fix so badly lately! Am dead from cute now.
Also, I love my family very very much, and I will miss them lots when I go back to Seattle, but at the same time... I'm ready to come back. Ready for classes to start, now that's another story...
TV, games, etc.
Well, it's finally happened. My dad bought the first season on DVD, and I've been slowly but steadily burning through it. Am up through the first 6 eps, and am determined to finish it before I go back to Seattle. I'm honestly surprised at how much I like it: I was all set not to, but then I wound up totally drawn in.
Hiro is the cutest thing that ever cuted in the history of all things cute ever, and what Japanese I know only allows me to enjoy the cute even more completely. Also, Claire (the cute blond teenage cheerleader) is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters (much to my surprise.) Hayden Penetierre (or however you spell it) is a much better actress than I'd expected. Same goes for a lot of the cast, in fact; the acting and the writing overall has been very geeky and impressive and fun to watch. Also, while I'm thrilled that there's a TV character with my name (shut up! This happens less than you would think, considering how many Jessicas I know) this one is just terrifying. O_O Holy crap.
I'm sure this goes without saying, but no spoilers, please! I've already been spoiled enough just from having niwatorimegami and casaval geek at me. >_>
More than a year after it's completion, I finally sat down and finished season 2.
Um. It can be season 3 watching time nao plz? According to wikipedia the dvds come out in December, and the 4th season starts in February... not a whole lot of time, but I think I can make it work!
Shut up, shut up, shut up, and shut up. XD I'm still weak to these games, and since I finished Phoenix Wright 2 and don't have much access to any other kinds of gaming (other than cell phone Tetris, which is addicitng in and of itself >_> ) so I've been spending a LOT of time leveling up my pokemans. Gonna wait on fighting the Elite 4 till I can evolve some of the ones that only evolve when traded, so right now I'm just accumulating a box full of level 50 critters that make me feel all accomplished when I look at them.
I've been spending a lot of time on this site lately, as I've been rather short lately with people to (A) discuss comics with, and (B) discuss feminine issues with, and this site has plenty of opportunity for both. The forums and some of the blogs are particularly interesting. My only beef is that I sent in an application for forum membership almost a week ago, and my account still hasn't been activated... I want to participate, darnit, not just watch. >_>
As much of my time as G-W has eaten, this has eaten even more. My God. It's like IMDB and wikipedia combined. I can start off reading an entry explaining The Xanatos Gambit and be at my desk three hours later reading up on moe. I swear, it's the best link-hopping site for comic/film/lit/TV geeks EVER.
Drawing remains my stress relief, my way to pass time, the Thing to Do With My Hands When I Have to Sit Still. Between sketching character designs for <lj user="ratzeo">'s new campaign (which I'll soon be joining!), redesigning the old characters as superheroes, and doing gift drawings for Certain People Who Have Birthdays, I've been very arty-busy lately, and that's a good thing for me to be. I love actually having things I want to draw, instead of aimlessly sketching and hoping for inspiration.
EDIT: How could I forget? Something which makes me obscenely happy is this fandom_wank post, which is chock full of entertaining macros and much goofing off. Beware of giant spiders and isopods while you're there.
