It really ticks me off when people don't keep their word.

My sister is something sometimes. I love her, and I feel for her because she's had a tough time of most everything in her life but sometimes I still just want to throttle her.

She's finally out of the military, she said she was going to be home in the beginning of June. When that didn't pan out she started making excuses and putting it off and putting it off until just this past week she said she'd be home this weekend.

If it was just me, I wouldn't give a crap. I still don't. But she's gotten the baby monster's hopes up. The baby monster and my mom even went out and bought a surprise cake for her expecting that she'd be home tonight.

She just finished texting me saying that she wasn't going to be home until next weekend, because she doesn't have the money to get home because she's trying to set up unemployment. I can sympathize with the no money, but at the same time, it still pisses me off because I know for a fact that both my sister and my dad via me sent her a total of 700 just last week. She should have something of that. Or should have planned to use part of that to get home.

To me it all just sounds like excuses.

I love me sister, but when I have to explain to the baby monster tonight that auntie isn't coming home this weekend, I'm going to be pissed all over again.

Feeling the nostalgia. One of the first non-anime fandoms I ever got into was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and one of the fics that has stayed with me even after all these years was The Charms of Dancing by Anastasia, a Willow/Spike fic.

I'm still heartbroken that fic was never finished.

I don't think she ever wrote anything else in any other fandom, and as far as I know I think she pretty much disappeared from an online presence. I think the only person who would even have any idea would have been [livejournal.com profile] inell.

This makes me a bit heartbroken. I absolutely LOVED that fic, and just thinking about it still gives me warm flutters. I can remember staying up hours after I should have gone to bed, reading every single bit of that fic, and desperately keeping an eye out for any update. That was more than 10 years ago, close to 12 years now I think.

*sigh*

Just feeling a bit wistful about the fic is all.

12 years is a long time to be in love with an abandoned fic. What fic are you guys still in love with even though its been years and years, or abandoned or forgotten?

Turned off the heat and the a/c more than two months ago. Saved over $150 the last few months. The heat finally beat me. Turned the effin' a/c on today. Two minutes of cool air blowing, being able to be cool this weekend in triple degree weather... worth it.

Also, my one day off during the week, I managed to get caught up on a few movies that I had bought on DVD. Looper, Safe Haven, and Premium Rush.

Still have a few left, but I think I'll catch up on some fic updates I have stored in my email from AO3 first. :D

Did not get the job that I applied for back in April out at the UC. Did not even get a no thank you post card or email (which is one of two ways that the automated reply said I would be notified). I'm a bit bummed of course.

On top of that, my boss at the law office found out that my coworker B has been applying to other jobs and found an old application printed out (and only because the garbage divers went through our old garbage and it was out on the sidewalk). He was of course a bit pissy for the next few days. After B spoke with him regarding the situation, which I have no idea what was discussed, everything is back to normal.

But the whole situation could easily have been me, I think. I don't check other jobs at work of course, but the situation was just so eerily close to mine, that I was of course weirded out.

I will still be applying to other jobs. I've been with both part time jobs for 6 and 5 years respectively, and its time I found something full time with benefits. I can't keep working two part time jobs, with no health benefits, constantly worried that if I have too much money in savings, i.e. anything over a few hundred, they'll kick me off medi-cal, and I won't have anything to fall back on if the baby monster should get sick.

There have been a few positions which have opened up at the UC, and I know there are a few at the local community college. Its just still so weird to be applying for jobs while I still have one, and at the same time, keeping it all on the down low so that it doesn't cause any weird tension at the office.

As far as movies are concerned this summer has started out great, continues to be and looks like it will end with a whole bunch of great movies.

I've seen Iron Man 3, and enjoyed it.

I've seen Star Trek, and with a few exceptions, loved it (and not only because I have plans to marry Chris Pine).

And now I've seen Fast and Furious 6 and really really enjoyed it. I have to say though, that I didn't always like Fast and Furious. I remember it took me something like 5 or 6 viewings before I could actually sit down long enough to pay attention to the first film and follow what was going on. Lol, and now 5 movies later, not only am I enjoying it, but my daughter has declared that we have to not only buy the other movies, like OMG immediately, but we have to go to the next one as well.

Still looking forward to Wolverine, and Man of Steel and a few others.

Just got caught up on S1x23&24 of Elementary.

I've really been enjoying this series quite a bit actually. Lol, its a nice tide over until BBC releases season 3 in September (or at least that's what I've been hearing as the release date).

Anyway. Elementary season 1. Loved it. I'm definitely glad that a second season has been greenlit. I'll want to see whats in store for these two.

So I'm going to attempt to apply for a job at UC Merced.

Surprisingly, there aren't all that many admin jobs available in town. I would have thought there'd be a bit more. But, like everyone else, blame the economy. 18% unemployment here in town, I suppose its to be expected.

Anyway, I've been consulting with an acquaintance of mine who works out at the UC and who has been going over my resume and cover letter. It looks and sounds alright, but its definitely a bit of a curve away from straight forward and business/legal professional sounding. I've been advised, that I want to target my resume and cover letter to sound a bit more academic leaning instead. I don't know. I'm a bit unsure as far as that goes.

So, anyone online right now and willing to give it a once over? I think I need fresh eyes. I've been looking over this stuff the last few days. I'm starting to see the same thing over and over.

Old e-books

I have noticed over the last year or so a lot of people on my flist posting about transferring or reformatting ebooks in order to be able to read them on a tablet or on another device.

So, I have a question, I have old .ebo books which I used to have on my old laptop. Before it died, I transferred them all over to an external harddrive.

After that, when I got my desktop, then transferred them over to the comp figuring that I'd get around to being able to reread them then. Never did obviously.

But I have this little tablet that I have downloaded the Kindle app on so I can read all the ebooks I've bought from Amazon.

What programs/apps/whatever would you recommend that I use/download so that I can access these old ebooks, or are they a lost cause?

So apparently because I'm not a die hard practicing Catholic like my mother... (who believes only Christians feel the need to give up anything for Lent, she's Catholic she doesn't have to, that Good Friday is likened to a death in the family and you shouldn't be leaving town to go and enjoy yourself [I took the baby monster to Marine World Friday], and if you're not baptized you shouldn't be allowed into the church [i.e. my daughter]), I'm not raising my child the right way, I'm not giving my daughter a good upbringing or a role model, I'm not teaching her anything valuable, I don't know anything about the bible, and I don't care about anything or anyone [you know, because I don't go to church].

I'm starting to get really irritated with my mother, and her insistence that I should get my child baptized like right this minute OMG or its like the end of the world or whatever.

I have no idea what has suddenly brought this on in the last two weeks, but if she doesn't cut this out soon, I'm liable to say something I'm sure I'm going to regret.

my boss is an okay guy to work for some of the stuff he says is just way out there. like today for example.  I've heard this argument before but I still don't understand people who think that legalizing gay marriage or awknowledging it or legally recognizing it automatically equates with wanting to marry an underage child or an animal.

 

On top of that apparently all gays want to get married but they don't want to share their money when it comes to California community property. So gay marriage is just an excuse for people.

 

I've heard these arguments before.

 

I was this close to just blurting out how much I thought his opinion was bullshit.

 

Luckily I was almost off work by then and it was time for me to leave.

I figure I've known of or my flist has known of me for close to ten years now. Or close to it.

So, I'm on LinkedIn now if anyone is interested. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/priscilla-martin/68/973/1b2?trk=fbr

As a step in establishing an professional online presence, I made a profile. Feel free to add, I need more network connections?

Wouldn't be very professional for them to find my AO3 account or my Facebook gaming account, I figure. Lol. I have a very small electronic footstep under my real name, surprisingly.

Tentatively thinking it is time I move on to another job. Not that there is anything wrong with either of my current jobs. I enjoy them both. But people have been talking to me about potential job openings.

Perhaps one at the Jr. College, or at the UC. On both counts I've heard there are going to be openings. One as an Admin Assistant, and the other as a VP of Student Services.

Jeeze, who is really really good at going over resumes and tweaking them to look presentable? Its been 6 years since I've updated my resume. And oh the horrors of cover letters. And panel interviews. OMG. I hated those.

Do I really want to do this? I think the draw of health benefits is whats really doing it for me for the baby monster.

You know, I didnt' realize, but its been ten years back in January since I joined LJ. Wow. That's quite a bit of time!

And to think, I remember mostly joining because a bunch of my favorite Gundam Wing authors had already joined up and were members, and I wanted to read what they were updating and writing about!

Lol, go me. Its my ten year stalking anniversary (belated at least).

On Fridays, if I'm not called in to work or cover for anyone, I usually help out at the baby monster's classroom. Sometimes they have a substitute and I stay and help her. Last week, the substitute was there again and she gave me a gift certificate to See's chocolates. I thought that was so nice of her. She didn't have to. I don't help out in the class hoping for anything back from the teachers. Mostly I do it so I can get to know the baby monster's classmates and what kind of kids they are that she's hanging out with.

I'm desperately hoping my tax return shows up in my account in the next few days. Mostly so I can go and buy tickets to go and see The Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses again. Last year my sister bought me a ticket to go see the symphony for my birthday. That was back in March. I couldn't take the baby monster because it was during the school week. This year, its in June, so I know she's going to be out of school by then. I have plans to buy two tickets for the both of us to go and see. We're both super excited.

I'm stupid excited about the new Die Hard movie (part 5), Its a Good Day to Die Hard, that's coming out in a few days. I tell people my plans for Valentine's day is to go and watch shit blow up. :D

Last week one of the day care mother's dropped off her little girl at day care. Her kid had a fever and she was leaving medicine for our day care lady to dose her kid with. I didn't say anything, and maybe I should have, but day care rules state that we aren't to bring our kid to day care if they've got a fever. I've never done it. I've always kept the baby monster home when she's sick.

Then I come to find out that just this week one of the little boys in the baby monster's class threw up in class. He'd been there most of the day, touching things, interacting with the kids in class, and that he'd been complaining all day that he wasn't feeling well.

The baby monster was sick last week with a slight cold. She seemed to have gotten over it except for an annoying cough, and some phlegm she's been trying to get rid of. The other day she came home from school with a rough throat and some congestion, and that night she woke me up because she had to puke. I figured she'd just had to get rid of all the phlegm or something. Too bad she woke up this morning with a fever of 102. Took her to the dr. Turns out she's got an ear and throat infection (probably still a cold). Stayed home with her all day today pushing water and medicine on the poor kid.

I am a bit put out that I've had to miss two days of work (one last week and today) because she's been getting sick. I wish people would stop sending their sick kids to school.

I feel pretty horrible wishing that my kid gets over this cold/infection whatever by tomorrow so I can send her to school so I can go to work. On top of that, I've got a continuing education seminar that I'm registered to attend tomorrow afternoon for my manager certificate for the apartments. I don't really want to miss it.

I know most parents wish their kids don't get sick at all; I just wish she'd gotten sick on any other week but this one. x.x

Also, on a whole completely different note, mom has been gone the last ten days to the Philippines for her sister's funeral. I'm not afraid to admit its been pretty damn nice to have had the whole house to just myself and the baby monster the last week and a half.

Last week one of the day care mother's dropped off her little girl at day care. Her kid had a fever and she was leaving medicine for our day care lady to dose her kid with.
