Stills, Done's and To-Do's

- Got my seasonal flu shot. Was not as bad as I expected

- Still liking my job. Got asked for an on the spot report regarding negative customer feedback I'd dealt with over the last week, and whipped up said report in 10 minutes flat; said report is to be presented to the high-up's higher-up. I think I did a good job and can defend every choice that I made and every action I took. I feel good about it. Heh. It remains to be see if I still have a job at the end of the week. *grin* Not that I really think it will be that big of a deal, but. You never know what's going to happen when you're a contractor.

ETA: Higher up liked what I'm doing, but wants to get more aggressive about reaching out to unhappy customers to make things right.

*facepalm*

Oh, you mean like the way I proposed we reach out to them a month ago? Great idea! *snort* Ahh, managerial level bizness peeple are crazee.


- Still need to call and book a night to go to the "Parenting after Separation" thingy. Yes, I am avoidy girl, why do you ask?

- Still need to clean my house. Will need to do that till the day I die. It is quite possibly the only way I will ever have a clean house is if mine burns down and I have to start over.

- Still need to finish sga_santa story BUT! At least I got it started. Kaliope is a great sounding board. Also, fun to hang out with.

5 day forecast of me:

- Tonight: Conflikt concom meeting.
- Friday night: Stargate/Browncoat Meetup to watch V and SGU
- Saturday: all day First Aid course to renew my OFA Level 1
- Sunday: VCon Concom meeting/post con debrief session
- Monday: Ahh, back to work, you are my relaxing thing right now...

Also, I have discovered that somehow, I need to beg, borrow or steal $570+ USD from SOMEWHERE. Why? I'll tell you why. DAVID FREAKING HEWLETT is going to be a Creation in Vancouver in April.

GAH!!!

I swore! I SWORE I would NEVER give those people my money again. I SWORE!!

I am weak. And David Hewlett, he is very pretty. And also, I MUST! MUST! MUST! make up a souvenir booklet from the Stargate Building Extravaganza, complete with photos from the construction and piccies of the action figures posed on the gate and such - oh, I have so many IDEAS!!! - anyway, I have *got* to give him that, for him and Jane and Baz. And also, I may have to write him a new song, and taunt him with the fact that this is a quick moving line and, hey I'm sorry but you really don't have time to hold the whole thing up just to read the whole damn thing and see if you can corrupt my lyrics with your slug white nerd rap and then smile sweetly and see what happens.

Oh yes. I need to do this. It's disgusting, it really is.

And it makes me *cry* when I think about how the money I spent obn #%*(_+*(&*^%$$ car repairs in the last 2 months could have paid for three (count em 3!!) Gold passes.

Oh, I think I'm going to be ill.

I SWORE!! *cries*

I am so caving if I can pull the money together. Evil creation, evil corporate cons EVIL EVIL EVIL!

I'll be there. If you check the Creation website there are a lot of good gold seats left. But it's very pricey. Good luck!

As for the flu shot- I went in a few weeks ago and asked about it. I was told if I was not pregnant nor in the medical field, that I would have to come back. I asked when I could come back and they told me that they did not know. Grr.

It's the same situation in this neck of the woods. The general population is not allowed to get shots till "more supplies arrive." If someone asks when the supplies are arriving, the powers that be are invariably struck dumb. Sigh.

In spite of my opinions, there probably is/was a celeb out there for whom Creation could make me whore, yes.

"Accept No Substitute"... - Popeye voice: 'Why, Iyoughta...'

the money I spent on #%*(_+*(&*^%$$ car repairs in the last 2 months

Is this (the [unprintable] cost) not just another reason to stop using cars and rely on bus service from now on?

It doesn't help that you are a single mom raising two (formerly three) kids with no help whatsoever from a [irretrievably vulgar four-letter expression] deadbeat ex.

Personally, I hope you get the money for a Gold Pass out of your ex's figurative hide. It would serve him right, no?

Well I had considered going to Creation right up until that announcement was made. Then I decided to change my name and avoid the con ;)

Apparently greatly different reactions to teh Hewlett(though that may be just because I need a chaperone/filter to be around him).

I mean I'd really like to go and get his auto on my lovely photo op...but I can't afford gold tickets. So am considering one day pass and Autograph ticket. Oh and hoping he brings his sidekick along ;)

I honestly can't see how I could possibly come up with the $$ for gold ticket, so I am hoping that they are going to sell one day passes.

However. IF they don't? I'll just make up the souvenir book and have someone else give it to him. Cuz I had serious fun last year just hangin' out in the bar.

Well I'll probably join you in the bar, just in a disguise with a fake name ;)

Because after the whole thing in Burbank I'm still a *little* gunshy about seeing him again. I mean really did I have to go and make him all speechless in front of *everyone*?
