micaturtle: (Importants!)
Blah. I've been feeling really out-of-sort lately. (like this whole last week or so) It's a strange feeling... Whenever I try to read fanfic (something I usually enjoy doing immensely) I get distracted and just don't feel like reading it. :\ I'm not sure what it is... burnout of some sort maybe? (Even though I don't know WHY I'd be burned out, I haven't been reading any more or any different types of fanfic than I usually read.) I've also been feeling that way about my job, like I just don't wanna do it, and also about a lot of other things in my life. *sai* I hope it's just a temporary thing and I can snap out of it. :P

Thankfully, TODAY the "funk cloud" I've been moping around in seems to have lifted a bit. (Again, not sure why, but it's appreciated.) So at least I've felt motivated enough to write this LJ entry. So that's good I guess.

Jenn, Mandy Anne, & I are going to Convergence, a sci-fi convention in Minneapolis, this weekend. :D It's going to be fun (I'm starting to get excited about it, but like I said it's hard with the funk I'm in lately. Which is strange because usually I'm MEGAexcited about cons.)

Jenn, Mandy Anne, [livejournal.com profile] moronqueen, & I are going to do the sexy turtles cosplay again on Saturday XD It's going to be a lot of fun, I hope. I think it will be better this time because since the Con isn't as huge as NYCC, we can stay together as a group more. (It's *TOTALLY* a costume that needs to be done as a group.)

I'm thinking of pulling out my red Loli dress (or maybe my purple one) and just going as a normal lolita on Friday. Hmmm....

Ooooh! A three part post!! On things COMPLETELY unrelated to each other!

Part 1
Piss off, Kia. My Kia Rio has an ANNOYING "feature" where if you lock the doors using the keyless thingy, and then use the key to open the trunk, the car alarm goes off. WTF?? Argh. Because EVERYONE knows that if you someone is using the keys to open the trunk of a locked car, THEY MUST BE A CAR THIEF!! Argh.

Okay, I thought maybe it was an overlooked little thing, BUT NO. THEY TALK ABOUT IT IN THE USER MANUAL! SEE?

JEEZ! In the stages of planning/designing this, I think the conversation went like this:
Engineer 1 - Oops! The alarm goes off when you open the trunk! Crap, I don't wanna have to fix that!
Engineer 2 - Ah, don't sweat it dude. We'll just stick a little blurb in the user's manual and tell everyone it's a "feature".
Engineer 1 - Awesome! Then we can go smoke a bowl! Plus, everyone knows that anyone trying to get into the trunk of a locked car is up to no good anyway. No way that they would be someone with their hands full of things to put into said trunk.
Engineer 2 - Exactly! What was that you said about smoking a bowl? I was going to design a button to open the trunk onto the remote start and fix the front fog lights so they stopped falling off whenever you looked at them funny, but your plan sounds a lot more fun!

There, writing that little thingy amused me and now I'm not as annoyed at being embarrassed by the Mikey Mobile making a racket when I tried to put something in the trunk this afternoon.

Part 2

WTF?? South Dakota is the second "free-est" state?? SOUTH DAKOTA??? Whatever! They must have somehow overlooked the fact that we've tried to OUTLAW abortion like 3 times, and that we've tried to get something passed to outlaw gay marriage? *facepalm*

Part 3
I KNOW that everyone's got this lil Turtle pet thingy, but I wanted to make one :D

I am sorry about the entry I posted yesterday. Many of you were right in your comments that I should keep the stories I told off a public forum. Thus, I have set the entry so it is viewable to me only. Many of you had very good points and things I wanted to reply to in your comments. However, doing so would be just prolonging drama.

Looking at the entry now with a new day's fresh eyes, I can see that it was rather petty and I was throwing a tantrum because I was hurt. I appreciate that I have a f-list that can tell me when I am wrong. Thank you all.

As for my friendship with the person in question, I think it's better that we just remain acquaintances. We are both good people, but we tend to bring out the worst in each other, so it's better this way.

The wound is just too fresh right now and I don't want to get into it. So, like the Mikey-type I am, I will ignore it and do nothing right now. Hopefully time will heal this wound again.


FYI: Just for those who don't know, yesterday's entry was an entry about a ex-friend of mine who kept her wedding a secret from me, and I delved into some hurtful territory of how she had wronged me and it came off very attacky.

Hi all,
Okay, I know this happened last thursday, but I didn't have a chance to type it up until today. I am in charge of doing the mail run at work, which means I run around to all the differnt VOA buildings and deliver inter-office mail. I just started doing this last week, just so you know. Anyway, I accidentally put 2 of the mail bags on the top of the car and then drove off, leaving them in the street (YIKES! BIG WHOOPS! :-O ) according to the receptionist in the place I was parked in front of, some guy in a gray suburban picks them up, puts them in his car, and takes off (WTF? DONT TAKE STUFF THAT'S NOT YOURS!) Anyway, I get a call from my boss's boss (whom we'll call J) as I'm stopping at the next place on the route, and she chews me out for my mistake. I continually say "I'm sorry", almost in tears, and she says "I know you are sorry." (WAHHH!) Anyway, I spend the rest of the mail run feeling sick and scared that sensitive information (and maybe money) has been stolen.
Here is where I find out God answers prayer : Between my last 2 stops, I start praying that God will help that person decide to return the mailbags. When i arrive at my final stop, some nice person tells me that the person who took the mailbags called and he's returned the bags to the place they were taken from (still weirds me out that he didn't just do that in the 1st place) But, a wieght lifts from my shoulders. YAY! See? I should have started praying earlier. Sometimes I think when I have doubts about god's existance that he has to little things like this to smack me in the face and say "DONT IGNORE ME!" hee hee

Ok, and here's the part of this whole situation that annoys me. I get back to my workplace, and my boss comes in and tells me the good news offically, and soothes my feathers and tells me that it's all okay. But he says "J wanted me to wait a while to tell you, and let you 'stew' a little, but I didn't want to. I know you stress out enough as it is." I'm just wondering... WTF??? What kind of manager thinks it's a good idea to let a person who is so upset that they are almost crying "STEW"? WTF? Did she think it would help me learn something or something??? I don't understand people sometimes.

But I'm better now that I've had the weekend to relax. NYAR!
