explosions and the blucas factor

my uterus exploded yesterday. it's feeling much better today, thank you.


weird dreams about running from exploding washing machines that were controlled by an evil mastermind. i would be able to live if i were able to find my way out of this weird corporate building that seemed more like a janitor's building than some corporate bigwig's. i would run through the corodors, the evil mastermind's voice booming in my head, cackling that i was going the wrong way, that he loved to see me run like a terrified animal. i would open doors and see stairs going down, and i would get confused, because i could have sworn that i had started on the ground floor. occasionally, i would open a door and see a washing machine sitting there, and i would shriek and turn to run in terror because i knew that if i stayed near it, i would eventually die, as it would explode, too.

meanwhile, in the dream, marc blucas (of buffy fame) was living in the backwoods of somewhere, going through military training. his best friend kept chiding him, telling him he needed to find some nice girl and settle down, and marc would chuckle and say that there was so many more important things in the world than love. he would do repetative pull ups on a tree branch, or show his expertise with a butterfly knife (i think that worked its way in there because andrea and i saw butterfly knife key chains in chevron last night) and such things. he said he had to go downtown to this janitor's building and help out a friend soon.

back at the ranch, i'm still a runnin, but now i have two female friends. we've been running for days it seems like, and we come across a buffet. i stop and grab some orange juice because i'm parched, and then grab some hotcakes with my hand. the cashier demands to know who i am so that she can bill me. i tell her 'um... katie holmes!' as i stuff my two limp hotcakes in my mouth.

and, um.. that's it.



so it seems like my mini fear at work is coming true: starting next week, i'm officially on days instead of closing, due to the day customer service desk people going to school (damn further education, damn!), so if i continue to get the same days off, i'll be there from 8 - 3, tuesday through friday, and 9 - 3 on sat. but Girl-I-Can't-Stand's schedule may be changing due to her getting a second job, so i might have to start working sundays again. curses. CUUUURRRSEEEES.

angry at EverQuest(tm) because ever since the new expansion went live yesterday, i cannot log on. this makes me angry.

i had one of my usual 'awkward aubrey moments' yesterday, which i will put in a friends only cut, because, well, this one is just a TAD to awkward to share with EVERYONE. but funny.

i should write a book.

i guess a few others are having problems, though not everyone, since omens of war went live.

i downloaded a full patch last night (which took about 7 hours), so i'll try again before work today.

I didn't get a chance last night, but I sure will tonight. Matt's out of town. Maybe I'll be nice and download the patch for him too.

It's too bad we're not on the same server, it'd be fun to play together.

yes, it IS too bad! and if i wasn't so in love with my guild, i would change or at least play there part time! which server are you on?

i still had issues after the patch, the only possible way that i was able to get in was deleting all my ui and .ini files, which SUCKS because i am having to go back through each character and reset all my hotkeys, etc.

OMG
That does suck. I only have four characters, and when I re-formatted my computer I remember having to do that. So irritating. And it takes forever to remember how you liked it, and get the windows back to where they're the best.

My husband and I play on Morell Thule.

I have Pinadweni: a 37 Pally, Fwenae: a 27 Cleric, Harwen: a 17 Magician, and Silvanelf: a 13 Rogue.

Maybe I'll start someone on your server, if only to say hi.

Re: OMG
you know you want to ;)

and free powerlevelling would be had! i love doing that on occasion, using my cleric to pull with her reverse damage shield, bringingthe mob to you and rooting it, then running off to get another one.

rawk.

I downloaded everything in about 10 mins....you must have dial up?
aubkabob
Sep. 19th, 2004 09:39 pm (UTC)
nope, i have cable. the original download was about 10 min, but because it kept dumping me to my desktop, i had to run a complete 10000% patch that they had on sony.com in order to try to fix the problem, which took the 7 hours.

and downloaded into the complete wrong spot, screwing up my computer.

and didn't fix the problem.

but it's fixed now! squee!

You know I started reading this and thought "I'm afraid to look for *that* icon" and noticed it wasn't there. Just as I'm thinking this, my dear GF links me to a rather disturbing community here on LJ that I'll be kind enough not to link to for real.

Screw the working Sunday, the having to be at work at 8am would be killer to me :)

well, sundays are 'short' days, meaning that we're open from 10 - 6 instead of 8 - 9.

the ending result, though, is that we usually get stuck working open to close, and since most of us usually work 6 - 8 hour days, and knowing that we're usually there at LEAST an hour or two after closing....

makes for a long day.

plus, sundays are the first days of our ads, so it's also a day of working out kinks, discovering what's not in the system, getting yelled at by customers because we already ran out of whatever, etc.

Greetings
Actually found you in a community call 'newfriends', well you can kinda guess what I was doing when I popped in there for a looksie.
At this time I would formally like to know if I caould add you to my friends list, granted that I get your permission first.

(uhhh sorry to hear that your uterus exploded yesterday, I can relate to an extent, but I dont think mine has gotten to that degree....)

I found your journal on ljfriends. Hope you don't mind..

Working on Sunday=Highly Overrated. But then again, is it potentially a slow day?
aubkabob
Sep. 16th, 2004 07:40 pm (UTC)
sundays = hell on earth. it's always the first day of our ads, so it's a day of mass amount of customers, finding out what isn't in the system, what we are completely out of, being yelled at by customers because something isn't in the system or we're already out of whatever is in ad (when we never get to see the ad until the night before it comes out, for one, and for another, we can't actively order stuff, it's on automatic replenishment, so we get it 'whenever'.

*sigh* not a fun day.

and i'm happy you found me! thank you for joining me in my world!

Well working the first half of the day is safer. This way when you go home the sun is still out. And you still have a job.

exactly. the job market up here is still entirely terrifying and we still have entirely too many people rushing in every. single. day. to pick up an application.
