New year musings and funny vid

Ten days into the new year, and I'm already feeling that this will be a better year than last (not that 2010 really stank that bad). We've got a new supervisor at work who I can put my trust in 100%. I respect her wholeheartedly, and I know it's returned. Work, with all the computer software and procedural changes, has evened out, stress-wise. It's gotten to where I don't dread the workday starting. That's an accomplishment right there. I can see a definite decrease in my credit card debt and a rise in my savings. Makes me pretty happy. My oldest puppy will probably pass this year, but it's not unexpected so I'm braced for it. So all in all,  a pretty good outlook for 2011. :)

I've started rewatching BSG in my rare spare time. While browsing Youtube, I came across this DVD extra from the Season 4 boxset and nearly DIED laughing!!! Go enjoy the frakkin'  craziness!

Merry Xmas to all.

Well, I feel accomplished this year. I've had my gifts wrapped for a week. We've already looked at lights a week and a half ago. We had our tree up and decorated by the 13th. This has been a good holiday season with tons of good cheer and sweetness (a wee bit bitter in that it's Xmas number 4 without Dad). I've enjoyed the decorating, the gift-giving, and the snow! Though, I could have done without driving in it. LOL And so...

To everyone, happy holidays (whichever holiday you celebrate in Dec). May you be with family and friends in a giving and loving environment. I wish everyone Merry Holidays where ever you are in the world.

Meme stealing!! Five questions about [insert character]

Found this fun meme over at scrollgirl's DW account and decided to steal/alter it. Since I'm such a huge Daniel nut, I'm just gonna fill it out for him. But if anyone wants to see my take on other characters or fandoms, let me know. :) Fandoms I'm currently competent (semi) are:

Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Merlin, Harry Potter, Kyou Kara Maou, and Gundam Wing

Name a character from one of the following fandoms and I'll give you:

(a) Three facts about them from my personal fanon.
(b) A reason he/she sucks.
(c) A reason he/she is amazing.
(d) Five things that I'd like to see happen to them.
(e) Five people that I can't ship that character with and why.

Gotta love the fandoms!

After spending so much in the Stargate world of fanfiction, I find myself recently revisiting old fav fandoms and finding new story gems in smaller fandoms. Watching the recent Harry Potter movie last night makes me want to look up what's new in the HP world. My only stopper there is how frackin' big that fandom is..... I'm almost scared to dip my toes in. On the other hand, my rediscovery of Kyou Kara Maou has been a delight! I'm currently rewatching the 3rd series with plans to go further back and rewatch the first one. I'm also reading more stories from that fandom. Oh if only life gave us more time to indulge in all these fan choices! :D

Case of the nerves.....

My brain is getting more and more keyed up as my first assignment as a temp approaches. My first job is going to be filling in as a receptionist for a month; my mind just keeps jumping to all that's wrong with this. A receptionist is the first person of a company many people meet. They're supposed to direct calls to appropriate personnel, answer customer basic questions about the company, and they're supposed to present a competent face to the public for the company. How am I supposed to do that if I only ever heard of this company three days ago? I can just see myself transferring a call to the wrong person 'cause the customer asks for something specific to the company, and I don't understand it. A customer asks me questions about specific medical options, and I just stare at 'em blankly..... I know that companies know that temps are coming in blind with no knowledge of the company, but that doesn't alleviate the stress of not knowing my temporary employer enough to do the job they're asking me to. People always say that they think temps are stupid, and they don't like 'em at all. Well, I say look at it from the temp's POV. I'm going into a job that I've got the basic, basic skills for (i.e. knowledge of how to operate a multi-line phone system, basic customer service experience and knowledge on how to deal with people situations), but with no specific knowledge of the company or even the business. All I know is that it deals with medical stuff..... That's it...... *sigh* I know I'm going to be so keyed up tomorrow that I won't be able to eat breakfast. Wonder how much sleep I'll get tonight.....

If it rains, it pours....

Everything just has to happen at once, eh? Just got done taking my Mom to the airport so she can fly out for my uncle's funeral in New York. So not only is she going for a sad event, I've got to worry about her in all that snow back east. Not to mention all the terrorist threats against planes..... My older 13 year old dog will probably be dead within the year. I know when she goes, I'm going to be a wreck. She's been a loving addition to our home for five years and will leave a big hole in our hearts. And then my brother-in-law lost his job last week due to budget cuts. *sigh* Nothing bad happens in singles, eh?

At least the weather here is TONS nicer than Mom's destination. It's already 40 degrees outside with temperatures like that predicted all week. Bye bye snow! :D I've also got my first job assignment with the temp agency I got hired with last month. I'm a bit nervous as I'm still learning this temp stuff, but I'm glad to finally be earning some money. I didn't want to have to rely on Mom's help to pay my bills come April-May when my money ran out. That's all that's new with me in a nutshell. Now it's back to fanfiction!!
