Okay, so I've been thinking about this since I found out about it and am not sure exactly how I feel about it, but maybe writing it out will help me get my mind around this. Right, so, this is the project I'm publishing next.

so i'm on the tail end of the flare. i was able to put my rings back on yesterday and i don't feel like my body is screaming at me. head, shoulder and hip/knee are the main problem points left, but that's no big surprise as they usually are. chronic headaches are not fun. :( plus side is that it's my friday and i have nothing planned beyond straightening up my room for a showing on monday for my days off and i can spend them in bed if i need to. i hate fibro flares. they suck yeggs.


i found this gif yesterday on the Sherlock tumblr i follow. i was really depressed at work yesterday - my friends who are also friends on fb would have seen the post - and i needed something to take my mind off things. seriously, max four players for a shift is crazy. this should not be so funny.

the Sherlock fandom is warped and i love it. Moffat is still trolling us with season 3 stuff and they don't even start filming until January next year. *sighs* i love and hate both him and Gatiss. then again, i don't want to see one part of the show if the trolling is true. my eyes would not survive.

i wonder

so, i've had two "i wonder" moments in the past two days and guess i should share, if only to see what everyone else thinks.

1) WSGC WAC/RCW codes state that all fills going from the cage to the table must be tracked with a PTZ camera. only one of our PTZ cameras is recording at the moment - i don't know - and it's too old and slow to track fills with. so if there's no way to tell if a fill is being tracked, does it, indeed, need to be tracked? yes, i actually sat and thought about this for a full 10 minutes at work yesterday.

2) I wonder who would be the more snarly/sarcastic one. Who would win an argument between Dr. Greg House and Professor Severus Snape? just the mental image has me in giggles.


** there's a severe weather system on the way in. don't talk to me about fibro symptoms and flares. so i might not even be on the computer when i get home. not that i've been on chat and social the past few days anyway....

the latest "great idea" from work is mandatory state safety training. so they signed up with a state online company to give us the training and we have to learn about every single bloody thing that is on there. this includes how to handle hazardous chemicals. i don't think we have anything stronger than industrial cleaner....no, wait, i tell a lie, the polish for the bowling lanes is pretty nasty stuff, but it's only handled by a couple of people.
this training brought such gems as:

"electical equipment" i don't know what this one is, other than you have a choice whether or not to use it. i have a feeling, based on context, that it's supposed to be electrical equipment, but who am i to argue with such an obviously fine program.

"infected employees" this was for employees who would be handling such chemicals. to their credit, it does say affected (although i think it should be effected) in the text and the person reading is the one who said infected. but why would you even publish something so stupid?

"managers will assure that documentation is on site" that's good. i feel ever so much better to know that my managers are going to reassure us about paperwork. i always get nervy around paperwork.

those are the first three that come to mind. there are tons more, but i've been too busy being sarcastic at my computer to really remember too much more. but it does rather make me want to run for my favorite high school english teacher and sic her on them. Carole would have a blast.

******
okay, now that that's done. *sighs* i still have one more test to finish tomorrow. it keeps crashing my browser so i'll try again tomorrow. just what i want to do on one of my days off. *rolls eyes*
work was slow. i read Stephen King and wrote a little more on my current story. have i said before how much i love king's turn of a phrase? today's was "reality can go screw a rolling doughnut." my all time favorite is "plums defy!" lol. no, i don't know what it means.
and i found that Snoopy i was talking about yesterday. i love this one.



and i find it exceptionally true for my writing career right now.
lexxiescott: (kaidoh ii data)
i will say one thing about work. words are powerful and tone is important. if LY doesn't learn to watch both, i'm going to lose it one of these days. *grabs russia and points him in her direction* kolkolkolkolkolkolkolkolkolkol *then sics ERHP on her*
i finished another chapter with 3282 words for a grand total for the month of 36,488. this was a rather short chapter that needs a little more work, but will stand as it is for night now. but it will get more fleshing out in the next read through/rewrite.

i decided to divide next week between three projects, so i should be able to finish some things, get some other things working, and keep on with the novel. one more shift and i'm off. that makes me happy.
lexxiescott: (plot bunnies lurk)
i'm so sleepy that i'm having issues typing. for example, shall is not spelt sahhl. *sighs* i wrote 1631 words tonight for a total of 22,289 for the whole challenge. i also made a slight attempt on the smut piece i'm working on but the characters are being stubborn. this might not be a good idea after all and that's the reason. but the weather is also still screwy so that could just be making me sick/tired as usual.
not to mention i spent an extra 40 minutes at work after my shift going over things with one of my new officers. and i work a six day week again with more training to be done. *sighs* so ready for my mini-holiday next week. thank heavens for dillon.

i give up

I QUIT!!!!!!!
lexxiescott: (seigaku dorks)
seriously. i can't even count going to work as productive.
this is day one of thirteen in a row at work. and it was dead. dead. dead. i was really happy i had books with me. i learned a lot about the Granada Sherlock Holmes series staring Jeremy Brett and then started one of Stephen King's books on writing. or on horror, rather, as i'm reading that one first. then i'll read his "On Writing" and see if it lives up to the opinions of my writing group. it's rather the holy grail when i go to the conference every year. so i'm curious.
i also downloaded the Prince of Tennis memorial best CDs (all 8 of them) and i swear it's like listening to an extended 100 song marathon. so far every song has been in the exact same order. to the point that i even know what's coming up next. it's kinda fun. =^.^=
more ideas for where stories are going, but no energy to sit and type. not to mention that there really is such a thing as cat nightmares or a kitty boogieman because Nina came out of her nest very abruptly last night with her tail four times it's normal size and looking like she'd just been shocked. and she only just went back to the nest. she's been insisting on sitting with me since i got home from work. i have no idea what got under her fur, but i'm just going with it.
lexxiescott: (da ne)
There's something on fire out in the fields. I can smell wet wheat burning. And it's not a real pleasant smell either. We're completely surrounded by and being hammered with thunder storms. Okay, it probably seems worse that it is to me because i hate storms, but there seriously was lightning showing all around me while i was driving home. At least it only started a fire in a field rather than hitting someone's house or doing damage in town. With a field they'll just let it burn and keep it contained to that one area. i just wish the wind was blowing a different way. *snorts*

tomorrow is my one day off. then i'll be starting a countdown. i'm working either 13 or 14 days in a row, hence my being late to movie night for the next two weeks. i don't know when our new guy is going to be cleared for training or to work, i'm kinda hoping near the end of it all so i can get James a day off in there. he's not really happy about the schedule, but because of what i'm working, he didn't really complain. but i can tell. he's been in my department for four years now.

i think i'm just gonna go to bed. storms make me hurt and i'm sleepy.

Codeine is good but I refuse to take it until the pain level is so off the chart that a "normal" person would be in hospital knocked out. Yeah, my pain scale is warped. I was at that point last night when I got home from work, so I kinda got a good, if somewhat unusual night's sleep.

I think the contractors showed up before 0730 this morning, but they were quiet enough that I slept until my alarm went off. Kinda. I did hear them moving around and talking, but it wasn't enough to get me out of bed.
I love the drive down to Lewiston and Clarkston, as long as I'm not the one driving. :) it is pretty and, for once, I didn't get turned around or lost going to the doc's office. He did his usual full body check for skin cancers and other problems and set a record this time. He only had his assistant take off one mole. The doc hurt his hand so he can't do biopsies rigt now. but I've had the other guy work with me before, so that was cool. Now pain for a couple of days while this starts to heal up. And at least 2 weeks before the lab results come back. I'm not horribly worried, but there is always a chance for skin cancer with these.

Now for work. At least it's not a full shift. James is coming in early for me.

I can always tell when there is about to be a big change in the weather. There are days I wish I could be surprised by the weather, but just live with it. It does mean, however, that I'm not likely to be on chat until wednesday for movie night. And I will be posting another reminder note.

Perky, I got the bears ordered and they will be in the mail in a day or so. As soon as I get them, I'll box everything together and get it to you. :) I hope you can handle so many rikkai guys together *snickers*

I'm planning to work on some fics the next couple of days. They're some of my procedurals not anime based ones, so keep an eye here for updates. There's one I think I'll have finished tomorrow night if everything goes right. But with me, who knows. ;)

And I'm debating dipping into my summer savings fund for some Hiro-Kim CDs. I will probably end up doing it. There are so Manu projects he's been involved in that it's impossible to think I'll have everything before the end of the year. It gets expensive afterall.
lexxiescott: (puri)
It'd have an A if I didn't hurt like hell in about seven different places. The most notible being my bad knee and where I fractured my left arm this past winter. I hate weather changes with a passion. It also means typing more than a couple of paragraphs are out of the question. Meh. I can deal. Hot bath, pain killers and bed. Sounds like heaven at the moment. Just have to hop on chat to see if one of the girls is there to tell her a couple of things and ask a question.

Dillon 2.0 (yes, that really is the nickname he ended up with at work) is going to be a good fit. After eight years of this, four as a trainer, I have a bit of an instinct for how well people are going to work out in surveillance. He's got the right blend of instinct and crazy to make it work. I don't know his previous work history and I could be totally off the mark, but at the same time, the last two people I had this feeling about worked out awesome in the department. And this kid likes anime too. He's also a fan of British humor and loves to talk words. If he didn't already have a girlfriend, I'd be considering..... *winks* Nah, he's a good kid. I'll have to wait and see what James thinks about him, but at the same time, I don't have the worries I had with the last idiot I trained. Now to talk to management tomorrow to see if we're on the same page with when Dillon starts working and we'll be good to go.

Festa 11 has an hour and a halfish left on it's upload and all three discs will be there. For my gals, the link is the one I gave you in the chat last night. If you didn't get it, and want festa, let me know and I'll message it to you. With this one uploaded on other sites, I'm not going to do like I did with the last one and make a general upload post.

I am all for bowling as a fun way to spend an evening, especially with gambling afterwards, because that is how I earn my paycheck. But at the same time, I am firmly of the opinion that when you come bowling, you should leave your ukelele at home.

It says something about how my day went when the most excitement I could hope for was one of the poker dealers falling off of a computer desk chair while hanging the new plasma screen TV in the casino. Why he didn't get a ladder, I don't know, but it was entertaining, to say the least. Especially what looked like a human pyramid for a few minutes. I actually went on the radio for that one and asked how many guys it took to hang a TV?

And I find myself enthralled by the mental image called up by the phrase I read in one of my Sherlock Holmes books. This is an anthology based off of the saying "when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." In the introduction to the Mummy's Curse, it spoke about the group that found King Tut's tomb. They said the leaders canary died in a freak cobra accident. I find myself wanting to know more. 
lexxiescott: (house morons)
And no, I don't feel particularly stupid at the moment, just tired as hell. I realized, again, that I am surrounded by stupid people at work. We didn't start count today until half an hour late because someone didn't talk to someone or didn't do their job or something. I got the story third hand so I honestly don't know what happened, but we had no security guard. (I always feel very insecure when that happens) Our pit boss had to go into count and lock the casino so we ended up opening fifteen minutes late today. Luckily it's Sunday (I think) and no one shows up right at open to play anyway.
I didn't realize I was having issues today until, while reading Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett, I found that I had to reread a joke three times to get it, when it normally just takes once. That worried me. I got the next couple of with problems, and greatly enjoyed the plague of chickens. And the footnote about chickens. I think it will take a while for me to get that image out of my head. I love that man's books.
Maybe I can blame the weather and the cat. Nina has been insisting on being let out at 0530 every morning this week and I'm exhausted. Not to mention it's raining. Oh yeah, and I work six days a week. I'm going to bed now. Tomorrow is my one day off. I'm sure you'll see me at some point. I promised to post some files for upload.
lexxiescott: (eiji neko happy)
I showed Ro PairPuri 8 tonight. She actually jumped when Yagyuu and Sanada went bursting into the bathroom. Her reactions were priceless, but she didn't like Akaya's dress much. *snickers* I told her the theory that they set it up for Sanada and Ryoma and she either pretended not to know what I was talking about, or just ignored me. But that was so totally a set up. Yukimura is a manipulator.
Then we watched Day of the Survival Mountain and the four OVAs that she had downloaded. My favorite, of course, was the Rikkai one. I don't know why Sanada couldn't keep his hair styled like that for ninth grade. He's sooo cute. The matches with Shitenhoji were interesting. Ro finds the team (except Shiraishi) annoying *coughKoharuYuukuncough* but they just make me laugh at this point. Their way of going into the school was priceless. I could have done without Higa though. Can't stand that school.
We're getting closer to the musicals. *does happy dance* I can't wait for her to see them. She won't read the mangas - mainly because she only has the downloads and I won't loan her my copies - but the musicals are so much closer to the manga than the anime is. She's still asking me what's under Shiraishi's bandage and doesn't believe me that it's poison. So she's a little pissy about that one, but I keep telling her if she reads the main manga I'll give her a link to the new ones and she can find out more about his arm. Until then, it's poison. Besides, it's cute.

Starting Sunday I no longer have to work night shifts. I'm so excited about that one. I'll actually have a semi-normal schedule. Ed and James aren't too happy, but I explained it was because of my health and, face it, I am the supervisor. I try not to pull that role too often, but hey, it's true. I've paid my dues at that place and am the one that makes the schedule. I bend over backwards to let them have whenever they want off and keep the place running while they're gone. I don't think this is too much. But we'll have to see how it goes. I know Ed doesn't want to work nights with his classes, but I was careful and he doesn't have to get up early to get to class the days he works nights, so I'm not being heartless. And he has weekends off. Totally.

My arm is about 85%. I'm out of the brace for the most part and kinda able to type. Nothing hideously long, so I don't know when I'll get back to updating things, but I hope by the middle of February. I have so many story ideas running around my head that it doesn't work to hand write them because I need to be able to move fast, which is typing. So I promise to get back in as soon as I can. I see my PT tomorrow - thank heavens - and my doc on the first. I'll be curious to see what they say. Especially as my doc summoned me. I think I missed a bloodwork appointment.
lexxiescott: (oh lexxie)
It's been an hour since our last hand was dealt out. All the tables are capped and the dealers, pit, security, cashier and myself (of course) are all sitting around with nothing to do. Well, nothing they pay us for, anyway. I'm going through Masa's blog and taking pictures. He's so cute. Our soon to be ex-manager just walked in with her husband and just had a look on her face, like what the hell are you all doing? So now she and her husband are going to play a couple of hands. *sighs* I think the snow, wind and low temps are keeping players away. And it's not even snowing *that* hard, just horizontal. ;)

And Ro is at Uwajimaya. *iz jealous* She made it a point to call and tell me where she was too. :) Baka. Oh well, I'll be at the Seattle store in nine days and then it'll be her turn to be jealous. *snickers* I'm so excited for that trip to Seattle with my parents for the Andre Rieu concert. Another one of those shows that happen once in a lifetime. That's how I felt when I got to see Victor Borge live. I couldn't talk for two days after that show because I had laughed so hard.




Neko-tachi. Poor Mr. Jinx was just lying in the chair minding his own business when Zeri decided to use him as a bed. I think my dad must have been at bridge because it's his chair and he's never out of it when he's home.


Hey look, players. That makes four. Sad.
lexxiescott: (laps)
Anyone else hate Tuesdays???? *looks around* I've actually started a club for people who do. There are four of us at work so far. The only requirement to join is you have to hate Tuesdays with a passion.
*headdesk*

I'm too brain dead to do any writing. I can't upload video files until a download finishes, so I've been capping PatiPati Night 3. The pics aren't uploaded yet, but will be within a half hour, at least the backstage ones. Then I'll cap the concerts for singers I love, like and can stand (in that order). *grins* I'll let you figure out who is who. ;)


*EDIT*
I thought capping Masa was hard. Naoya and Kazuya (ON/OFF) just took the title of most difficult away from him.
lexxiescott: (masa)
Whenever I have a bad day at work, I think Masa knows it and puts up something that will make me smile.
http://blog.oricon.co.jp/windbreeze/daily/201010/23
His outfit in the third picture down is just so.....so.....Masa. *grins* And a pic of him with Ba-chon!!!! Kawaii. Now I really hope this is the concert that will become a DVD next year. *crosses fingers*

Ro and I are into the Junior Invitational arc in the PoT anime and I had an idea for a short fic when Akaya falls down the stairs. It involves a lot of kissing and tarundorus. You can probably guess the pairing. I do wish they had some of my other favorites there. I felt so bad for Dabide when he was making puns in the meeting and no one would hit him. That's another fic idea. He calls Bane-san in tears because no one is paying attention to his puns. *snorts* I need to start a list of ideas/pairings.

At work today, Sauce said something that annoyed me. I don't remember what it was, but I told him to watch it or I would smite him with lightning bolts. (the nickname for surveillance is God because we see everything). He said he was made of stone and lightning wouldn't hurt him. I said I'd just get Thor's hammer then. He asked me how because Thor was still using it. I told him I had connections and he let me have that one. :)
And then I had to wonder, after watching a particularly stupid yet difficult thing to explain in writing, what Donna would do if I turned in an evaluation on a dealer that simply said, "don't do that." Now I'm tempted.

hoo boy

I'm still out of breath/chest hurting from how hard and long I was laughing over one of my answers in the first PoT meme. I swear I didn't look!!!!!!
One more segment and I have all of the Rock Musical Bleach shows downloaded and ready to watch. *does happy dance* I can't wait to see the first gen. Momoshiro as Renji Abarai in Bleach. Talk about perfect casting. Ro and I are going to watch them together, so it might be a while before I get to see it, but still happy.
Work was loooong today. Not boring because it's WSU dad's weekend so it's busy as hell. Our poker room was my problem child today. I spent more time on the phone with Garrett and David than I did any of the other departments for the entire 9.5 hours of my shift. That's pretty sad. But they are still learning how to be supervisors and they had some pretty big stuff go down (a bad beat for $3000 and a monte carlo for $200) which meant paperwork for them and me and the cashier. The players were happy though. The money on bad beats and monte carlos in poker is just given to the player on top of whatever they won for that hand.
This will make folks happy. I finished a chapter for TDC. Well, with the exception of maybe one more hand-written page. I'll do that tomorrow and then see when I can get it typed up. And I'm working on some anime/manga based pieces as well. I have to get the bunnies out of my head before I can focus back on my other pieces. Still have the list hanging up though.
Look for a Takumi-kun piece within the next two weeks. ;)

I do wish I was in Portland with Ro for her older brother's wedding though. I couldn't get the time off from work and it's probably a good thing because both her sisters are there too and they drive me crazy. It would have been good to see the babies though. I miss Nevaeh.
