    • I Have A Weird Hobby

      8 years ago

      nlea

      Aside from the whole 'over analyzing fictional sci-fi, cartoons and machinima for fun' thing I mean.

      See, I have these cameras, well, one real camera (kind of) and the one on my phone, and I like to take pictures with them. So far no weird, right? The thing is, sometimes I get it in my head that I want to be "artsy" and I grab a camera and snap shots of whatever catches my fancy. They're all mostly rubbish and they spend their lives mouldering away on memory cards or computer hard drives. Which is fine, and exactly what they deserve.

      The point is, I always have at least one picture taking device on me at all times. And I take pictures of whatever strikes my fancy as I'm walking. And lately that's been signs. Street signs. But not just normal, on a pole, securely in the ground, in one piece street signs. No, it's gotta be fallen signs or broken signs or signs that have been in some way mutilated or molested. I seem to have quite a collection. It's like a compulsion. I realized that this afternoon. I was walking home and I passed this sign:
      IMG_20110402_131213.jpg
      My phone was out of my pocket, in my hand and taking the picture before I even really thought about it. It's a sickness.

      Step two: Make turkey bacon sandwich.

      Step three: Hope page is finally loaded on my return.

      Step four: Enjoy bacony goodness either way.

      Moral of the story? I have bacon. And it's nummy.

    • It's A Vicious Cycle

      8 years ago

      nlea

      But I've learned to accept it. Back again. *Waves timidly*

      So, about three months. That seems to be my limit. I can only be away from you wonderful people and this fantastic community for three months before I'm pulled back. Good lord, I've missed you all.

      "Why disappear for months at a time then, if you miss us so much?" I hear you ask. (Okay, I didn't really hear anything, but just go with me on this.) Well, I dunno. I don't do things in moderation I guess. After some time on here I find I've gotten so drawn in to this site that it all gets a bit overwhelming and then I just disappear, like *poof*. But I'm back to try it again (again), and even though I'm still a bit RvB'd out (and so probably won't be that verbal in the usual places) I missed the people, the community, and I want to catch up. How are you all? What have I missed? Any major life changes since we last spoke? Or any minor ones? Hell, have you seen any good movies lately even? Lemme know. Drop me a line. And as always, I adore the lot of you. smiley0.gif

    • So That Was Just Awesome

      8 years ago

      nlea

      Actaully, it wasn't that bad. Especially for not getting a nap or anything before I went in. And we did manage to get a bunch of stuff done. Didn't manage to get out of bed til three this afternoon though. So I guess, all in all, it didn't cut into my day off at all. And I don't feel like quite a lazy bum as I usually would getting up at this time. So all in all, success. smiley0.gif

      My boss, she managed to talk me into coming in tonight.

      Well, at least the store'll be closed, so no customers. And, you know, overtime. So yay...

    • Oh My Freaking Lord!!!!!!

      8 years ago

      nlea

      I hate the "Holidays". A lot. Freaking people coming into my store, buying crap, making me work. Bastards.

      So, yeah. We're fantastically understaffed at work while being over budget on the payroll. Which amounts to me working my geeky ass off. I've been lucky for the last few weeks to leave on time. (On time in this context being no later than 15 minutes after the scheduled end of my shift.) So that's been fun. Add to it all the customers who come in to bitch about things like how busy we are, the prices of things, that things are on sale and not just that price always, and assuming that the shelves stock themselves the carts wrangle themselves and the ad signs hang themselves so I have nothing better to do than be their personal shopper. Seriously, I don't mind helping someone find something, telling them where it is, taking them to the product. It's when they come to me with their entire list and expect me to find it all for them that I lose it. I mean seriously? I really don't get paid enough for that.

      And apparently our store has gremlins because yesterday every single register went down at the same time. Every single one. Holy crap.

      And then I came home (eventually) and went to bed.

      Now I have a day off and it's glorious.

      Hope you enjoyed the rant. It's been a long time coming, I just haven't had the energy to touch my computer really lately. There's been enough trollish behavior I've had to deal with in the real world, I really didn't want to deal with it on the internet, too.

    • Overwhelming

      8 years ago

      nlea

      Technology can get to be a bit much at times. Here I am, taking part in forum discussion here on RT (well, making inappropriate comments to MissZ, but still...) and texting a friend and holding two instant message conversations on Facebook* (they ambushed me and now I'm stuck) after having sent a private message to someone else on Facebook*. Holy crap. Too much communicating.

      *I hope they don't sue me.

    • I'm Cold...

      But now I have tea and lemon pound cake. So I guess things are good.

    • Venture Bros. Season 4 Finale

      8 years ago

      nlea

      The problem with a really awesome show airing an hour long awesome season finale? I want more. Now please. With lots more 21. SPOILERS(Or, I guess I should just call him Gary, what with the quitting and everything) And what's the real deal with 24 anyway? And the Moppets? LFTO, ASSEMBLE! Then again, I've been enjoying allowing myself to experience the twists as they come instead of seeking them out ahead of time.

      I don't know if I can cope with this. Not only is there the waiting for more RvB, but now there's the Venture Bros. withdrawal. I don't know if I'll make it to spring.

      Yeah, it was great to be home ^___^

      I took LFTO off watch when it devolved into AI RP-ing and image spamming...I know some people like the off-season lulz, but I don't really. However, the new season starts SO SOON =D

      Now that I think about it, I should probably put LFTO back on watch...
