Corporate Nightmare continues...  
11:01pm 31/10/2012
So today I went to work today to the corporate nightmare dressed up as Vriska from Homestuck.


It was fun, but not as fun as expected. I had a meeting with the VP of the Company, who walked by me at lunch and gave me a friendly greeting arm squeeze (not hard at all) and said I looked great. So I was confused as to why she was being nice to me.

I think all of the antagonism towards me is purely my boss. Point in case, VP of the Company gave me a desperately urgent ASAP task to do, which over rode my boss' orders to train my replacement *coughs* I mean fellow coworker. So I tell my boss this and she's like *glare* you can have her work on it and train her that way. I was like "... I really need to get this done now."

Finally got to do it without having to fumble through training.

My boss is already speaking like I'm gone... apparently my roommate (did I mention I got my roommate a job at the company?) is now going to be in charge of operations and my replacement will be HIS backfill. It's like a double slap in the face. And tomorrow I train new girl moar while being watched by new boss in training. Fuck.

The nice side of it all is the new girl is genuinely nice and smart and has caught on really fast and I like her. Training a new person to replace yourself is not that difficult if you genuinely like most people and genuinely want to help most people. I've told her when she's done a good job and encouraged her. I've kept my mouth shut about the entire "you know that you're replacing me" thing, because no new employee should have to carry that. She's good. I wish her all the best.

I want to kick my current boss in her non-existent balls. She is a terrible person.

Oh yeah, and they fired the new HR for unknown reasons today as well. So no safty net there. *sighs*

Today at work was day one of being replaced. The new girl seems quiet, and I can't quite get a read on her. She'll probably hate the job.

I know for sure I'm being replaced though because new girl told me that when they were interviewing her they said a position was opening up soon and if she'd be interested. :P

The only thing that hurt today was when my boss told new girl (names left out for confidentiality haha) that "this was her task list" and these are all her new tasks.

Though are my tasks, I wrote that damn task list... argh. But I guess it isn't mine any longer.

Frankly my boss is an idiot for getting rid of me when she's going on maternity leave, leaving new replacement boss without much back-up but whatever. Scott's leaving and we just hired a new disputes guy too.

Also because I know I'm getting canned I pretty much don't care what I say anymore (within reason) and they were discussing the pumpkin carving the new people will have to do tomorrow. All of the unfortunate recruits (including new boss guy) were expounding on their lack of pumpkin carving skillz so I found a picture of the gold star with "you tried" written in it and e-mailed it to the entire department with the words "for tomorrow" written in the subject line.

It was hilarious and my boss made that disapproving uncomfortable "yes, well" comment and I didn't give a fuck because it made almost everyone else laugh. *She* was the one who thought it was hilarious to be like "well if you don't do well carving the pumpkin I guess we'll just have to fire you, haha" and NO ONE LAUGHED.


Yeah there are benefits to not giving a fuck.

I'm a jerk.

Today at work:

We're hiring someone to do the same job as yours. You're expected to train them, do a good job of it, keep on top of your regular work as well as book biweekly meetings with me to discuss how you feel you've improved over all in all the things we expect you to do.

I'm considering moving all of my fanfiction (except for the really old pre-2001 stuff) to archiveofourown.org based purely on the fact that I'm tired of having all my stuff scattered across the Internet. Turtlecest holds most of my embarrassing tmnt fic that isn't posted elsewhere (which isn't as embarrassing in light of the fact that ao3 has a well used watersports tag), adultfanfiction.net has a crappy interface and living in the fear that fanfiction.net will delete me due to content is annoying.

Make up test #2 - Dream bubble Vriska. The blue is a bit too bright, but there you go. My grey facepaint and wig have not arrived in the mail yet, so all you get is the blue and the creepy. :)

Just thought I'd update to say things. I went camping on the weekend, but only managed to stay out there one night. I flirted with a boy, but felt nothing when he kissed me. :( Ah well. I also when canoeing and hiking. It was far less exciting than it sounds.

I found out the reason why I was so exhausted last week is because I had a cold coming on, which camping managed to kick it into head-squeezy uuuuughhhh territory, so I've been suffering through that for the last three days.

... Also I'm nearing the end of Act 5:2 of Homestuck. I think I have less than 1500 pages to go.

I'm going to be Terezi for halloween. I have bought materials to make it happen.

That's pretty much it. I'll make fanfic recommendations when I stop reading this stupidly long comic that never ends and keeps on making me play mini-games and giving me Morse code and changing scenes when I've just hit a REALLY SUSPENSEFUL PART.

... and drag myself back into the land of the living. *waves warily at everyone*

I can't stop reading this comic!

Also: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14293468/homestuck-adventure-game Homestuck kickstarter. Started today. Already at 350k. I don't think he'll have any problem raising the money. Somehow.

There were hordes of people dressed up as astrological signs with grey skin and horns at the con last weekend, all from a webcomic called "Homestuck." (MS Paint Adventures.)

So I've been trying to read it. I'm about 300 pages in and I'm still "..." about what, exactly, it is and what's going on. Now I know why people at the con said "it's really good!" but for the life of them could not offer any sort of explanation.

I did enjoy the Sims parody that Sburb is.

I also have a feeling the end of the world will factor in here at some point. Also great use of flash or gifs or whatever the author uses to make his pictures move.


He must turn out a page or two a day, this is an insane amount of work. Perhaps whoever made it does not have a job, or makes a lot of money off of his comics to not need to do anything but work on his comics. EDIT: Looked it up - he does comic this pretty much every waking moment.

EDIT #2: Got to the end of Act 1. End of world apparently happened. Sort of. I still have no idea what is going on, but at least it has snagged my interest. :)

While my boss is off getting hitched this weekend I'm going to enjoy the utter amazingness of being able to write all weekend long! WHOHO!

... just as soon as I stop watching all the youtube videos and reading all the news articles... o_o

EDIT: Aaaannd now I'm watching South Park. Man I haven't seen this in years. XD I can't believe they're in their 16th season, I remember watching season one in High School...

... I'm officially old. -_-

Proposed 2012 Nanowrimo idea – 50K of Endings!  
12:12pm 21/08/2012
So I’ve done Nanowrimo 6 years in a row now, 4(5?) which I completed. It always comes to the same thing, I end up 50 thousand words of STUFF. This stuff usually ends up being one step away from crap with plotholes the size of the small planets, and they end up in far reaches of my computer on December 2nd, never to be touched again.


What has Nanowrimo taught me? I can write 50k of words in a month. That’s great! I can also finish really crappy novels. Even better! But where is the CHALLENGE in that? I already know I can do it. *yawn* Just the thought of producing yet another crappy book makes me sad.

So! Lets spice it up a bit! This year I want to do Nanowrimo a little different. Instead of writing a novel, I want to borrow the extremely supportive environment of Nano’s enforced plow towards 50k of writing to complete endings. I have at least 10 fanfics and two original novels that are not done, and all are sitting somewhere between rising action and denouement.

I’m going to prepare a list of fanfics that are sitting on the “I NEED AN ENDING PLS” pile and post it, and I’ll encourage all of you to tell me which ones you’d like to see ended. The endings might be crappy, mind, (very crappy and possibly OOC) but I’ll spend my 50k on working on the endings. THIS IS THE PLAN.

I know the TMNT fandom has about 10 fics in need of an ending. Seeing as the new TMNT cartoon is coming out on September 29th, I see a likelihood of these being worked on. *nods*

So yes, let me know which ones you’d like me to work on, and/or hate me the most for dropping and/or have already disowned me because I never finished. O_o
