JUST LEAVE ME TO MY DELUSIONS

mixing dwarvish and elvish styles for tauriel’s outfit was a lot of fun! i’ll probably try to do an elvish wedding version at some point…

SHRIEKING

I ADORE THEM BOTH OK
azurelunatic: The four quadrants of troll romance, represented by heart, diamond, spade, and club. (quadrants)
It was a Tuesday.

I arrived at a vaguely reasonable hour, and then did vaguely reasonable things. There was the 1:1 with my manager, where the room got sort of awkwardly pre-empted by people somewhat higher up who were apparently hoping to just have a quiet cup of coffee together. (We were the ones who wound up outside because while I'm sufficiently faceblind and unfamiliar with the galaxy of changing people up top, my manager is neither.)

Crunch mode on that thing is done for the month, and other stuff has been juggled. Next I get to have fun with juggling schedules! Yay! We still haven't gotten final word on our destination in the new building. I have got boxes, though, so at least I can start with that.

Yet another of my teammates is getting married in the upcoming weeks, and according to her wishes, there will be no trips down to the duck (in every sense of the word) pond.

[personal profile] jd's Eurovision party has been scheduled! Yay!

In the lull between things, I am working on getting somewhat organized again. And thus I proceeded until my brain and body were both asking me why the fuck I was on about this again.

Given that it's been crunch mode and I've been tired, I've let my step count slip. I also let my laundry schedule slip some, resulting in today's arguably gaudy pairing of the bright magenta shirt and the undersea blue-green skirt. It goes! But it's not my raven-sober usual look. (The conversation that goes "Yeah, I've been letting all kinds of stuff slip. Just look at me!" "Huh?" "No, seriously, look at me." "Laundry?" "Yep." depends on a working knowledge of my usual style.)

"Color blocking" as a fashion, even when it doesn't make you look like a Frank Lloyd Wright (or Vasa) stained glass (in the bad way), introduces so many opportunities for someone to make an utter hash of their wardrobe. I'm talking Cecil Gershwin Palmer fanon bizarre. Purple and I got to talking about the possibilities inherent in cultivating a look which was deliberately that awful, so that someone looking at their wardrobe might go "YOU HAVE ALL KINDS OF THINGS WHICH GO TOGETHER WHY DON'T YOU EVER WEAR THEM AT THE SAME TIME!!" because that sort of thing amuses us. (This apropos of my wardrobe, in which you could find things which go together poorly, but you'd have to try on purpose.) (Though the off-light-blue cotton workplace fitness challenge shirt with the neck cut out which fits too tight in the tits over the really elegant black and silver lace skirt would probably do it, especially if I threw in a bright pink boa and the purple glitter clogs.)

There's a certain amount of geek-culture cred to being able to correctly name which series of Star Trek the only color block shirt I own (unintentionally) goes with. Somebody had to google it. *smug look*

The Stage Manager has been telling me I'm evil. This may have to do with the doughnuts (no one wanted the last half, it seems like), the peeps, or the jellybeans. I'm not sure which. He snagged the last of the blue peeps, so I opened the purple peeps. (The pink peeps are next.)

I had occasion to mention to someone that the other uncle-manager was kind of an intense guy, and had more than once made me feel really stupid from the questions he was asking me which I ought to have been able to answer, and my complete inability to say anything while so very suddenly on the spot that made any sense. One either gets used to that (or pushes back, which is probably a better strategy), or one does not. But this is a thing to be aware of when having dealings with him.

It was still light out when I started meeping and wobbling. I'm not used to that happening except on 2nd Thursdays.

It occurred to me in the shower that my current love/romance/partner/Very Important People type situation could be summed up with a simple diagram. Read more... )

Another 2nd Thursday survived, despite the death of my work computer's hard drive. I came into work earlier than I otherwise might have on account of some research scheduling issues (I didn't know whether Researcher Sweatervest had all the information he needed, there was an early-ish study, and I was having troubles logging in from home, troubles which may have included an out of date password for the share drive) and while all that turned out to be unnecessary, it also let me get a good solid start on the last half of the notes. I powered through those notes and finished them! Whee!


THERE WERE DUCKLINGS BY THE DUCK POND. Everybody was pretty delighted by that. Apparently the ducks started out at the top of the hill but paraded down later. All the fun photos aren't shareable, alas. (As much as ducks in general horrify me, the babies are adorable.) (And just in time! Ducksies and taxies! <- this is a joke that only Tay and I will properly appreciate, because you had to be there, and "there" was our bathroom in the mid-90s with a billion little busy baby ducks.)

  • Sat, 03:38: Searching google maps for 'san francisco to portland road trip' is giving me GLORIOUS results.
  • Sat, 04:19: ROAD TRIP *giggling*
  • Sat, 04:20: No, seriously, given Vash's gas mileage and the current price of gas, a round trip in the car for just me is about equal to plane w/bags.
  • Sat, 04:22: If I can find someone else going from SF to Portland for osbridge, it may well be cheaper for both of us.

2nd Thursday happened. Nothing caught on fire. I like it when things don't catch on fire. I sat down with the magic pen and the computer on Wednesday night and made another whack at seeing if I could get it to autotranscribe my handwriting.

Reader, it turns out that the magic pen talks to OneNote.
The magic pen has talked to OneNote since 2012.
Poor Purple got to hear most of the cursing. There was a lot of it.

  • Wed, 17:18: "Oh, go open up Excel" is functionally equivalent to "get fucked" in my jargon with Purple right now. #andyetnotanorgasminsight
