HEY GUYS, IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW, ROUND ONE HAS STARTED OVER AT [livejournal.com profile] f_march_madness! YOUR FAVOURITE CHARACTERS NEED YOUR HELP!


IF YOU DON'T WATCH THE SHOWS, THEN MY FAVOURITE CHARACTERS NEED YOUR HELP!





ALSO SAMANTHA CARTER AND CHLOE SULLIVAN. THEY HAVE NO CHANCE AGAINST SCULLY AND OLIVIA, BUT THEY'RE STILL AWESOME AND DESERVE SOME LOVE.

AND I THINK I CAN OFFICIALLY SAY THAT I'M NOT GOING TO WIN THE OFFICE POOL! I SERIOUSLY OVERESTIMATED THE LEVEL OF KONO SUPPORT. WHILE I'M HAPPY THAT BRENNAN IS WINNING HER POLL SO THOROUGHLY, IT DOES COMPLETELY SCREW UP MY BRACKET!

It's MARCH!

OFFICE POOL

crystalcazzie: (Roslin Airlock Time)
THE FANDOM MARCH MADNESS PRELIMINARIES ARE OVER AND THE OFFICE POOL IS OPEN! THIS IS WHERE WE NEED TO PREDICT WHO WE THINK WILL WIN EACH ROUND AND TAKE THE CHAMPIONSHIP!

OMG THIS IS HARD! I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO BE PUTTING DOWN WHO I THINK WILL WIN BUT I DON'T THINK I CAN BRING MYSELF TO PREDICT AGAINST MY FAVOURITES. I'M GOING TO HAVE TO PREDICT OPTIMISTICALLY AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.

IT WASN'T A PROBLEM FOR THE FIRST TWO SECTIONS BUT THEN I GOT TO THE SCI-FI BRACKET AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO! I WANT SAM CARTER TO BEAT DEAN SO MUCH BUT I DOUBT SHE WILL. AND HAVING AERYN SUN AGAINST DONNA NOBLE HURTS MY SOUL BECAUSE I LOVE AERYN BUT EVERYONE WAS RALLYING AROUND DONNA IN THE PRELIMINARIES AND SHE HAS A LOT OF SUPPORT.

I'M NOT GOING TO PREDICT RIGHT NOW, I'M GOING TO TAKE THE SHEET OF PAPER WITH ME AND THINK ABOUT IT SERIOUSLY THEN FILL IT IN TOMORROW. I'M BEING THAT SERIOUS ABOUT IT!
crystalcazzie: (L&C Crazy Lex)
RPATZZ WAS ON JON STEWART! OMG IT WAS AMAZING! MY PARENTS WERE WATCHING IT WITH ME AND WERE ALL "WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIS HAIR?" AND I HAD TO TRY AND EXPLAIN WHY I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE HIM!

IF YOU'RE WONDERING WHY I'M CAPSLOCKING, WELL IT'S THANKS TO FANDOM MARCH MADNESS. WORK MIGHT BE MAKING ME MISERABLE AT THE MOMENT BUT IT'S OK BECAUSE I'M HAVING SUCH A GREAT TIME OVER THERE VOTING AND CAMPAIGNING FOR MY FAVOURITE CHARACTERS!



SO YEAH, COME AND JOIN IN! IT'S SO MUCH FUN! (UNLESS YOU'RE PLANNING TO VOTE FOR DEAN WINCHESTER, IN WHICH CASE THERE'S NOTHING TO SEE HERE, MOVE ALONG.)
crystalcazzie: (Christmas)
Today's Writers Block question: Have you ever walked off a job on the spot? What drove you to it? Did you regret it afterwards?

Hilariously appropriate because I am so very tempted to do exactly that and it's only my constant reminding myself of the consequences that stops me.

For one thing the stockroom is fucking freezing cos the heating doesn't work. We've got little portable heaters but they only warm the area directly in front of them, which isn't overly useful when the job involves walking up and down the stockroom. The result is a lot of unhappy staff who can't feel their fingers and customers who actually comment on how cold their items are when we bring them out.

Also, I can see my breath at the very back of the stockroom. THIS CAN'T BE RIGHT!

Another thing is that the company I work for is made up of miserable Scrooges. I suggested we dress up for Christmas Eve cos dressing up is fun and makes people happy. But no, apparently our area manager thinks it doesn't look professional. IT'S FUCKING CHRISTMAS EVE! WE CAN'T DRESS UP ONE DAY OF THE YEAR?! One of my colleagues is pleased with this as she hates the idea of dressing up and refuses to even put on a Santa hat. Miserable Scrooges everywhere!

Of course miserable Scrooges are not limited to work, they're in my family too. Once again I seemed to be the only person who actually cared about decorating the house this year. Mum did a lot too but I think that was because she saw how important it was to me. Dad and Robert didn't really care. Dad even suggested putting the tree in the side passage. For those of you who don't know my house, imagine a utility room attached to the kitchen. Yes, he wanted to put the tree in a room we only go into a few times a day and always with the purpose of doing something else. Surely the tree should be somewhere you spend a lot of time, like the living room.

Fortunately I was very insistent and there is a very nice, highly decorated (by Mum and myself) tree over on the other side of the room I am currently in.

But I am trying (and kinda failing) not to let it all get me down and I am determined to enjoy Christmas this year. I have high hopes for this weekend and seeing London's Christmas decorations. Don't fail me London!

Only a few HOURS to go now! Eeeeee!

Yes, I'm still doing my usual CAPSLOCK Friday. Just a bit EARLIER than usual cos I FLY out tonight. I took today OFF work and it feels kinda WEIRD to be sitting at home at the moment. I've DONE my last minute packing and now there's not much ELSE to do before heading off later.

It still doesn't feel ENTIRELY real. Sometimes it does and I feel extremely EXCITED, but then at other times I have to keep REMINDING myself that I'm actually going. I find myself thinking of what to have for DINNER tonight then remember that I'll be at the AIRPORT to eat.

I don't think TILLY is very happy. It's pretty OBVIOUS to her that SOMETHING is happening. She was climbing over my SUITCASE earlier and she keeps LOOKING at me now. I hope she FORGIVES me for leaving her for two weeks.

I wonder if MCGEE will take over my BEDROOM while I'm gone. It wouldn't SURPRISE me.

FURY probably won't care.

ALSO, BEHOLD NEW LJ THEME!
crystalcazzie: (Halloween)
So, it's FRIDAY and that means CAPSLOCK day.

For some reason writing feels HARD. I've been TIRED all week, possibly because of the CLOCKS (damn clocks) or possibly because work has been very BUSY (damn customers).

I've also been subjected to more CHRISTMAS songs at work. And they're not JUST Christmas songs, oh no, they're BELOVED Christmas songs covered by UNSIGNED artists and they OFFEND my very being. I have to LISTEN to these artists RUIN songs that I love OVER and OVER again.

But looking on the BRIGHT SIDE (if there is one) is that it makes listening to CHRISTMAS music in OCTOBER not so bad because it's not PROPER Christmas music.

It is still VERY ANNOYING though.

Well, ENOUGH of that. It's HALLOWEEN tomorrow! YAY! I have PUMPKINS to carve. Robert and Kat did theirs YESTERDAY while I carved some PEPPERS instead.

There were HALLOWEEN treats and CAKE in the staff room at work courtesy of the one member of staff who takes day even more SERIOUSLY than I do. It was truly DELICIOUS cake.

I am currently drinking AUSTRALIAN wine. Only ONE week to go!

Awwwww

HELLO EVERYONE!

Thank you for all your REPLIES to my last POST. They are much APPRECIATED.

Today was turning out pretty CRAPPY too, there were bouts of insane BUSYNESS and everyone was in a BAD MOOD but then these people came in with a PUPPY and everyone went OMG SUCH A CUTE PUPPY and PEACE and HARMONY were restored to the LAND.

Cute ANIMALS make everything BETTER.
crystalcazzie: (Default)
Today a customer told me I had a lovely smile and a great sense of humour. Then he complimented me to my manager, saying that he was impressed with how friendly I was and that I should get a pay rise.

Clearly he was a very wise man. :p And just a little bit mad. :)

I suppose I should be CAPSLOCKING since it is FRIDAY.

I plan to go get some AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS tomorrow. We fly out THREE WEEKS today and it's feeling a BIT more REAL now but still feels like I've got LOADS of time. Which I DON'T.

I am EXCITED though.
crystalcazzie: (Cat Spit)
So, another WEEK has ended and the WEEKEND has begun. I have managed to do SOMETHING to my ankle, although I have no idea WHAT. I think I should SUE my work though. I'm sure I can find some reason why it's their FAULT.

Also, I'm not writing this entry from my USUAL chair because there is a CAT in it.

Photographic Evidence )

See how COMFY he looks on MY cushion, snuggled into MY Leonard Cohen top. He was PURRING as well so of course I couldn't MOVE him.

That's MCGEE, the cat we have named after the NCIS character. And the new season of NCIS starts tonight. YAY.
crystalcazzie: (Default)
It is FRIDAY. I have a CAT on my lap and a VODKA and COKE by my laptop. Things are GOOD.

Although I see NOBODY has replied to my post from YESTERDAY about THIS. Perhaps I would have better luck if I made it a POLL:

[Poll #1465518]

There you go. =D
crystalcazzie: (L&C Crazy Lex)
SOMEONE BOUGHT CHRISTMAS WRAPPING PAPER TODAY!

I FEEL THIS NEEDS TO BE IN ALL CAPS TO EXPRESS THE DEPTHS OF MY SHOCK AND HORROR.

I HAVE A LARGE RUM AND COKE TO HELP ME GET THROUGH THE TRAUMA.

YES...THE TRAUMA. IT WAS VERY TRAUMATIC. SO TRAUMATIC THAT I NEED MORE RUM.

YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE IS TRAUMATIC? THE, UM, LIGHT. YES, THE LIGHTS ARE NOT ON IN THIS ROOM AND IT IS GETTING DARK AND I AM TRAUMATISED AND MUST HAVE MORE RUM TO COPE WITH IT ALL.

(AND I HAVE JUST REALISED THAT THIS WOMAN'S ACTIONS HAVE MADE ME USE MY 'CHRISTMAS' TAG IN SEPTEMBER. THIS CALLS FOR EVEN MORE RUM!)

Oops

Well, WORK has certainly been an ADVENTURE this week.

Most of the MANAGERS are on HOLIDAY, the TILLS have been CRASHING, the PRINTER has been PLAYING UP and I FUCKED UP in the CASH OFFICE. I've CORRECTED the mistake though, and in my DEFENCE, I was left COMPLETELY BY MYSELF after being trained TWO WEEKS ago.

And today the TILLS refused to close down. I wonder if it's related to the fact that the SYSTEM randomly decided it was an HOUR later than it is. That was ODD.

Still, the WORK WEEK is over and the WEEKEND has begun! YAY!
crystalcazzie: (I Harth Darth)
Ok, I have a large GIN and LEMONADE and am ready to write my CAPSLOCK of doom entry.

I'm sure SOMETHING happened today and I thought "I'll MENTION that in my CAPSLOCK entry later" but I can't REMEMBER what it was. Epic memory FAIL. This is what happens when you turn TWENTY SIX.

Oh god, I'm TWENTY SIX. It hadn't really SUNK IN until just then.

It's all DOWNHILL to THIRTY now.

I need more ALCOHOL.
crystalcazzie: (John/Aeryn)
Greetings DUDES and DUDETTES. Another FRIDAY is upon us, and that means another CAPSLOCK post. Today is a SPECIAL Friday since it is my LAST Friday of being 25.

Tomorrow I am going to see AVENUE Q for the THIRD time. Apparently NOBODY at my work has heard of this particular musical and my attempts to EXPLAIN what is is have resulted in everyone I work with thinking I am going to see PUPPET PORN.

Lately I have been feeling very TIRED and CONFUSED and CLUMSY. I'm sure most people now think I'm completely INCOMPETENT.

I have SHINY new ICONS. I still want MORE.

FRIDAY

GREETINGS oh FRIENDS of mine on this fine FRIDAY before a BANK HOLIDAY weekend.

Yes, THREE whole days off work. I DID NOT put my name down to work on Monday because, while DOUBLE PAY is a nice incentive, I always HATE working bank holidays.

Hopefully this WEEKEND will be fun. And I will not EPICALLY FAIL at climbing again like I did last time when my ARMS refused to work.
crystalcazzie: (Default)
Happy FRIDAY everyone. :)

I was being CASH OFFICE trained earlier and I found an UNDATED 20p piece. YAY ME! Hannah currently has it and the plan is to sell it on EBAY. I would kinda like to KEEP IT though. I like collecting COINS.

LJ-wise, I still have a MEME I need to do. Hopefully PAUL will give me my WORDS soon so I can do TWO sets at once because I am just that AWESOME.

Real-life-wise, my IPOD is playing up. The WHEEL is no longer WHEELING. Perhaps it is time for a NEW one, although I am not sure WHICH. I did look at the IPHONE but I really can't justify SPENDING that much.
crystalcazzie: (Cedric Can't Dazzle)
So... it's Friday. CAPSLOCK day. Not that I feel very CAPSLOCKY. I've been ILL and I HATE being ILL. I missed out on WEDNESDAY goodness and this week was one of the RARE times when I got to finish work at 4, which I REALLY like and probably won't happen again for AGES.

But I did watch a hell of a lot of FARSCAPE, which is EXCELLENT.

I'm currently using GOOGLE CHROME as my browser because FIREFOX is being SHIT. I quite LIKE it so far, but I can't get SPELL CHECK to work, which is ANNOYING.
