Work SUX [Mar. 21st, 2007|01:48 pm]

Ok, I got my next two-week work schedule. ALL LATES. NO FAIR! Well, I suppose it's fair in the way that this is how seniority works and the ones with most seniority get the shifts they want and I end up with ones they DON'T want but still!

They really need to hire more people...

Mainly a work rant here. I was supposed to get off at 10:30pm last night. Guess what time I actually left? 11:40pm! Because the other girl called and said she'd be late and asked me if I could stay another hour. *GRUMBLE* and it's not like I could call the supervisor to come to work for one lousy hour. So I didn't get home until past midnight. I hope she doesn't do this to me today...

Since Allie posted her thoughts on the CKin2u perfume ad, I thought I'd ask what you guys thought of the Diesel's Global Warming Ad Campaign. There's actually a bit of a rant on the 'net about it ranging from disgust at using the seriousness of Global Warming to sell jeans to it bringing awareness to an egocentric society. As for me, I just think of it as eye-candy. Like art. Does it raise my awareness? No, but then I already knew about Global Warming and I've always been more posed to doing my little part (whatever it may be, e.g. recycling, water conservation, possibly buying a hybrid in the future) for the environment. Does it make me disgusted? No, like I said - EYE-CANDY. I don't take the ad seriously or with whatever message it's sending or supposed to send. Do I think it's lame? Not really... not as lame as say Paris Hilton trying to sell Carl's Jr's burgers in a bikini while washing a sports car.

GAH! My luck?

TMI... though all the girls on the list would understandCollapse )

On the plus side, LJ isn't so hectic (yet). I'm excited about Augury (Rho and Sam - SQUEE!), though I still need to post on BX (April, Ivan - BS!). And I still need to tally for the SS exchange from December for HH (will do tonight! I hope!) and maybe remind everybody about the ongoing SV exchange and comment-for-points post.

Day #6 - pbbt! [Jan. 5th, 2007|09:21 am]

[Current Mood |annoyedannoyed]

So, naturally, with my "luck" (*insert sarcasm here*), yesterday was the worst day of the week so far! (Of course, it would happen on the day I wasn't supposed to be there! but since I'm "too nice" and said I'd work, I got the short end of the stick! --btw, exactly how does that saying work? How can one end be shorter or longer than the other? Or is this like drawing straws and getting the shortest one? But no one ever says "short end of the straw". okay, enough digressing--

First, I receive a call - the woman wants to talk to the supervisor but they all went home at a decent hour (like 5-6pm) and I'm the only one left that is "in charge". She proceeds to tell me what a crappy department I have and that she's going to report us to Dr. So-and-So and Dr. Such-and-Such (blah blah blah), etc. So, here I am - just taking it. I can't really "argue" back as it wouldn't diffuse the situation, though in the back of my mind, I'm grumbling and thinking that I'm not being paid enough to deal with this. In the end, I help her and solve her problem to the best of my ability. Of course, the irritating part was that she actually sounded "nicer" (or perhaps, superficially sweet) in the end and thanked me.

Second, the next patient -not on the phone but in person- was arguing with me about her medication. I tried to explain to her about the procedure and in the end, I told her that she might want to speak to the supervisor in the morning. Still, the whole process took a good chunk of time that I could have been using to do other work -which of course, ended being piled up since I'm the only one there! that can do it-

*PBBT!* At least, tonight I get off a little bit earlier... but GAH!

"Last" Day - WHEE! [Dec. 27th, 2006|10:48 am]

[Current Mood |mellowmellow]

Yeah, I know I already complained about it... but I think you all know by now that my journal is BORING and if I don't whine about work, then *cough* you will read NOTHING! ;)

Anyways...

Traffic SUCKED yesterday! It took me almost an hour to get to work when usually it takes about 30-45 minutes. AND to top it all, I had to pee really bad. (Note to self: DO NOT DRINK COFFEE before you hit the road!) For like half an hour! And I kept debating if I should get off the effing freeway and use surface streets or stop by the McDonald's on the way to go to the bathroom. *grumble*

So I had no "computer/library" time yesterday because the library closes at 5pm and that's when I go to lunch. I usually try to leave a little earlier but my co-worker was like "No! Don't leave me here with all the work because the other girls do diddly squat and you and I are a TEAM! PUHLEASE!" -- well, she didn't say EXACTLY that, but you get the idea -- so I didn't go to lunch until 5pm.

And today, I promised to take the intern to the library at 4:30pm so we could figure out how to download that intranet program (see my previous grumble/post about it); maybe he can figure it out. :D

Tonight is the same night shift as yesterday. :P but at least tomorrow and Friday I have off. Tomorrow my best friend is coming over! I haven't seen her in over a year. And Friday, I probably will be taking my mom shopping and/or cleaning the house. We'll see. :)

And of course, I work the weekend... but I will gripe about that in my future posts. ;)

Start of Work "Week" [Dec. 23rd, 2006|06:43 am]

Yeah, yeah... you've already heard read me ranting about work... so what else is new? I'm just keeping with the expectation! ;P

--will be off to work soon. Luckily, I have the 8-4:30pm shift today, tomorrow, and Monday. Of course (insert sarcasm here), I work 2-10:30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday... and I still don't know what I'm working the following week. (dun dun dunnnnn....)

I'm done with my HiH Secret Santa gift. I hope she likes it. She's just so uber cool and I'm a dork that I'm afraid she might not. I'll try to work on a Quidditch fic for her later - maybe a post-Christmas gift - but I'm not as "into" Quidditch as she is, so I don't know if it'll be any good either.

p.s. sevarem, Amaury's player is still on hiatus. That weekend we hoped her computer would be fixed... well... nope, it's still giving her problems. :(

Rho is so silly... "Style of Jade"... CRAZY! *pats*

Okay... I'm awake, I've finished catching up on my f-list (I think) and my emails...

RL
Work: Did I mention that I had Wednesday and Thursday off this week? Well, SCRATCH THAT! Make it only Wednesday. Yesterday, my supervisor asked if I could work Thursday - the 9am shift (THANK GOD!) - and me being the pushover that I am (I come close second to Gabe, don't I?), said "okay". So, this week is six days! And it will be SIX DAYS IN A ROW! *headdesk* Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. *grumble* And of course, Monday and Tuesday are 2-10:30pm just like this week. *shakes fist*. To top that all off, the following weekend - I have to work graveyard AGAIN! (WTF?) So, Saturday and Sunday from midnight to 8am. *winces in anticipation of lack of sleep!*

As I paraphrase (make light of) April, it's a good thing my hands look young because it averages out the rest of my appearance. *laughs quite inappropriately and then sighs at own joke*

I did finally call the Help Desk, and after fifteen minutes (which basically wasted half the free time I did have), I was able to get my password to work... so now I have access to the library's computers. Yay! One small step for Jade here! Unfortunately, the library closes at 5pm... so I must type quickly and have my lunch breaks before then... (which is kinda hard if I work 2-10:30pm to have lunch around 4:30pm). *sigh*

We also have a Secret Santa Exchange going on at work. Luckily, I got a girl who likes Peanuts too... so I'm getting her some Peanuts stuff. But I don't know... I'm still kinda "sensitive" in the "worried if she'll like what I get her" type mood.

hmm... do I really have a RL outside of work? Not at the moment... I need to start writing Christmas cards, and today, I will call my best friend in Pennsylvania and ask her when she's coming back... as I hope that will light a fire under me to finish draft #3.

LJ/RP
HiH: Still debating whether I should drop out and reduce my f-list. Ho hum...

HH: Secret Santa is up to 14 participants. Wheeeeee!

RP:
1. WW: Read your email (just about an hour ago), will reply once I update application. :D
2. Augury: I know, I know... must stick Cho in some conversation... just haven't had time due to work, and I haven't emailed any of the other players lately to see what they'd like to do... considering it's close to finals, etc.

Ali: Kian is SO DIFFICULT to find pictures for! Why must you like models who don't have many pictures? First it was Brent - and then luckily we found some pics, which half are totally inappropriate anyways (BAD GABE! STOP STARING DOWN HER BLOUSE! and who said you could wear SUNGLASSES? and you need to shave!). And now Kian? GAH! help????? (at least, Brent is better than Pottsy who is ever harder to find pics for... although Soren shirtless isn't as far-fetched as Gabe wearing pink shoes.)
