In Chinatown, they've got something nice; and I'm not talkin' about the rice! [Oct. 16th, 2006|09:43 am]

I think it was "Dancing With The Stars" that got me into a 1950s/1960s kick, so much so that I popped in an old Paul Anka tape and had to put this lyric up in my subject-line because it cracks me up. It's from the song, "Love (Makes the World Go 'Round)".


Not much of an update on Real Life here! yenesi cracked me up with one of her posts about the broken toilet seat - because you know what? One of the toilet seats in my house broke too! A few days ago, I think, and so my mom and sister went to Home Depot to get a new one, and now we have the plush/cushiony seat instead of the standard hard/flat/white one. Yes... my life must be pretty boring if I'm telling you all about my toilet seat!

Got my TB test read today. Negative, of course. Now, I just have to do that physical on Friday. Scratch my previous posts - I don't think my co-workers know I'm leaving yet... only because if they did, I would be bogged down by their nosy/curious questions on why/where/what/how/who/etc. This past weekend when I worked, no one said anything (I kinda half-expected one of the supervisors who I like and he seems genuinely friendly and such to say something like 'we're going to miss you' or something... but he acted like he didn't know...). So, it's more than likely that they don't know yet - which is a bit of a relief because I really don't want to answer their questions. I think on Thursday - which will be my last day - I will email everybody and tell them 'it's been great working with you all'-type thing and then leave an email addy in case they need/want to keep in touch with me (which I doubt, but I'll give them the option anyways).


Onto LJ, okay.... who submitted my name into the H-E superlatives? I know I wasn't active this past term, so I'm betting it was one of you on my flist. I was surprised - pleasantly - that I was nominated for best Hufflepuff and Ravenpuff, but since I couldn't vote for myself, I know I won't even get one vote ;D. Still, it's the thought that counts, right? So... *HUGS* to unagieater, smammers, sevarem, mari4212, and cheshire23, of course. I voted for each of you!

HH - posted about the new HB/HG! I hope I did that correct ^_^. I wasn't sure which comm(s) they're supposed to join, but thanks to Starlight for correcting me on that. ^_^ Because I have both admin-comms on my flist, I don't pay attention to where the HB/HG's have been posting to... so I thought both were general-staff comms.

HiH - hmm... now that TG is not part of HiH, I'm wondering if I should drop HiH. I don't think I really do much there, except sort and play TG...? (and most of the Claws I've made friends with are already on my flist now). Hmm... I guess since the comm doesn't bog my flist too badly, I'll stay for now. Might as well give my points to Ravenclaw. ^_^ We'll see how that goes.

Now, I'm off... to put a couple posts up for TG and work a little on Gackie before I go to work. :)

I'm amazed that you can keep track of so many comms.

The posts you made about the HB/HG look good. Quite a few of the staff belong to both comms, but we created the Lounge so that the Office didn't get bogged down with class stuff. Nope, can't tell that our Headmistress is an actual teacher.

I'm really glad to hear that your coworkers don't know yet, would be easier.

You can only vote for one category! So Hufflepuff OR Ravenpuff but not both!

Ooo... I get ONE vote! ;D

hahahaha... secret stalkers! ;D

honestly though, I was more active my first term there - so it was more "disappointing" not to win certain things - but now? I'm just surprised anyone knows my 'name' since all I do is SORT there, with one word answers and no explanations. And I play a little M-E (or try to) and I doubt anyone remembers me from that (since it's easier to associate characters/names than the actual player).

I know, back when I was first sorted there I was booming with activity and just dying to sort and these days I'm kinda... meh. I like belonging in a sorting community (that's why I got sorted in so many!) but these days it seems like my interest is slowly dying off. D:

hehehe... lots of people like collecting stamps/sorts ;D I had been throwing around the idea of joining stamping communities, just to see which character I'd be labeled (though right now, I'm not sure if I want to keep filling out applications ;)) but the idea kinda died down.

Stamping communities have EASY apps! Though, most people follow the sheep mentality and don't really read your app. I hate the communities that ask for a photo though. D: (Get stamped at mine, cough)

I was referring to HP, but I'll go join yours! It'll be fun since you don't require a pic (right? <.< >.>) even though you already know how I look! ;P I just have to read up on it... and I guess I have to vote on 3 apps before?
