Of course, unless we manage to drop boxes on the heads of the crazies, they will be coming with.

From what I understand, yours truly will have an office to herself - sort of. They are going to park the fax machine and printers in there with me. I was the only one not brought to go see the place. Which was bullshit, but you know. Whatever.


Have sent my parents the credit app info for the apartment, and have not heard from them all day. I'm not going to be able to sleep until this is resolved.
Just remember when dealing with crazy. Dropping boxes on their heads only works if the boxes are steel, or oak. Carboard only works if you fill it with heavy stuff, like, oh, cast iron. Try to make it look like an accident though.

I hated sending stuff like that to my parents.

So, you're going to leave your office everyday high on printer toner and unable to finish any work at all because of the constant interruptions from people coming in and out of your office and the noise from all the machines. That sucks. that really, really sucks.

actually, after the "internet intervention" meeting we had en masse last week and all the eye contact with the boss, I thought I would be put right in front of her for observation.

And with my job - which is order entry/billing, there's no way I wouldn't be interrupted every half hour/20 minutes. People are in my cube all day, bringing me mah work. I just hope I won't have to listen to the bickering and the swearing any more.

I may or may not be working on this movie right now. I find it awesome.

Mileage may vary, I've been told by Marvel comic readers that I am not allowed an opinion because I haven't read the comics, but I'm judging it on its merits as a movie.

My boss moved me opposite her not that long ago. I did wonder if I'd been put in the naughty seat...even more so when in the current office move-around I'm one of the few people staying where I am now. Anyway, my boss is based in Brighton, so she's only in our office in Aldershot for two or three days a week...and she's on leave now. Not that anyone is especially heartbroken when she's not there.

I have a scar from picking up a splinter when sliding down a wooden plank. Similarly to you, I don't show that one to just anybody. I was hospitalised for it.

And good morning Cantina.

Okay, I'm back from having the best hamburgers in Toyama. This is Japan, a country that really doesn't understand the hamburger. They think McDonalds is GOOD, for god's sake.

They are utterly shocked when you tell them that Macs probably doesn't hit the top 5 for tasty burgers in the national chains.

It was good. At least they have real meat, real cheese, and fresh veggies. Now, their onion rings, those were good.

I'm watching Thor right now.

Much of it is good, but I didn't feel anything for Loki... and didn't really see a Thor/Jane thing - I mean, she thought he was hot, but they didn't connect, at least they didn't seem to to me.

Holy crap - I did not know Kennth Branaugh directed! It sure was a pretty movie. I loved how Agnar looked. But the costumes/armor were ridiculous. They looked like spray painted plastic. Which they probably were.

Thor was actually my least favorite of the prequels, but it's worth watching, imo. And not to stare at the Thor actor...okay not *just* for that.



I'm not that sad, but let's blame Peter anyway.
I um, watched iron man. Is there a Black Widow prequel? And yes, Blame Peter (who is one of the SFF mods folks)

Feel free to mock mine in return. I have a row of four tiny spots on the outside of my right wrist. i tried to steal a chip / fry off someone plate one lunchtime at school, and he stabbed me. I never expected school cutlery to be so sharp.

I didn't hear any air guitar riffs when Ali posted, so I doubt she was mocking you. Scars are cool, don't worry. Doesn't matter how you got them, you can lie if you need to. No one needs to know.

1. You need to be quicker. They actually had time to stab you with a fork? Slow hands, slow hands.

2. Of course it's sharp, the lunch lady spends a significant part of each evening listening to the eagles, dreaming of broiled children, and sharpening the tableware. You didn't know?

How do I get transported to future movie watching land? And get paid for it?





Suppose it would help if I spoke more than one language fluidly, right?

I almost cut my finger off when I was five or so, but the rest are mundane things I got from falling off things or surgery in sketchy countries that like to think they are less developing than they are.

I saw nothing wrong with the costumes, but then again I read the comics. They fit.

Morning all,

Spending some time editing in a local coffee shop.

Did my piss test. As a reward, I bought a red velvet biscotti to go with my coffee.

I need to get these mms off my plate so I can do some writing. Wearing lots of hats can be a pain...

Once in my life have I worked for someone whose absence made me sad (work-sad, not real life-sad). It's a shame it doesn't happen more often.

Yeah, they felt very rushed. Like, because it was established in the comics they didn't actually need to include any organic development. I did enjoy Idris Elba, though, in his little role.

Mileage may vary, I've been told by Marvel comic readers that I am not allowed an opinion because I haven't read the comics, but I'm judging it on its merits as a movie.
Sooo jealous.

Holy crap - I did not know Kennth Branaugh directed! It sure was a pretty movie. I loved how Agnar looked. But the costumes/armor were ridiculous. They looked like spray painted plastic. Which they probably were.
Semi spoilery:
The love story was the worst in that. I mean, I get the attraction and all, but that went to undying love pretty quickly.

They're all pretty good. The Ironmans are my favorite, followed by Captain America. I think the plot and such was better in Hulk than Thor. But I'd rather stare at watch Thor.

I have to admit, I was quite surprised by how true to the original comic book origins Captain America was. I was sure they would update it, and take it out of the WWII era, but even the old Plucky American Can Do Attitude (tm) was retained, rather than glossed over with a more contemporary coat of Dark n' Gritty paint.

Regarding comics and movies:

You know what I'm tired of? Rehashing origin stories. It makes sense for some flicks, really, like Captain America needed to be what it was. But I liked how Iron Man dispensed with that part pretty quickly, and see no reason, NONE AT ALL, why the new Spider-Man reboot has to go through the "bit by a radioactive genetically modified spider" bit all over again.

Does *anyone* out there not know this story by now?? Can't we just move on to a good story??



Ok, done now.
