Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |blahblah]

Today I'm really scattered.. and a little down.. so it's just a list of random stuff today.. sorry:


  • For Christmas I say we all chip in and get Gerard Butler a new agent. Because "Timeline" made me want to claw my eyes out and the clips of "Phantom" I heard on the radio last night nearly made me drive into a lamppost just to get it over with.

  • Matt's office has given him next week off. Which is fine. But which would have been better if I'd known about it earlier in the month when I could have budgeted for the fact that we'd be short half his rent. *sigh*

  • I have two wee presents left to get and then am DONE DONE DONE.

  • Bets are now being taken for when my boss will let us go. The first slot up for bid is noon, which is when Ms. Perfect is leaving.

  • Matt will be gone all next week.. I have arranged for Netflix to bring me girlie movies out the yin-yang. YAY!

  • Last night I finished polishing up one or two little things on my resume and then listed it with Monster and applied for about twelve jobs around the area. I'm thinking of hiring a recruiter to help me find a job but I wouldn't even know where to start.

  • My father's birthday card arrived and made me laugh so hard I snorted a bit. It took 30 years but I think he finally *got* my sense of humor.



Pressies wot I got and loved and hugged to bitsy bits:

  • wilfulcait gave me ornaments.. WONDERFUL and GORGEOUS ornaments including hand-made snowflakes and handmade globes with blue glitter, and those wonderful curly paper ones.. they're just gorgeous and I love ornaments. *happiness*

  • maitheas.. dude.. I love that ducky. I love that ducky so much that I give it until Jan. 4th before everyone's like "KNOCK IT OFF WITH THE SQUEAKING!" :) Thank you thank you thank you. (Also, the snowman is firmly on the tree \o/)

  • berreh, oh Berry, I love my compass! I've been needing one bad.. and that book? Matt has it and I keep stealing his so now I have MY OWN COPY! YAY!

  • Also, more love for my Molly bracelet.. I keep stroking it. :)



How are you guys?

*big stupid grin* I'm so chuffed that you like the bracelet. That one took me the longest to make, because I needed it to be just right.

And I finally finished the holiday fic I was banging my head against the desk over. It's... okay. But I finishd it before the 24th, which is what I wanted. This is why I don't sign up for any of those challenges - I'd kill myself trying to get them done. (says the woman who has her own challenge coming up in a few days... eep)

I'm weighing in this morning. The scale at home shows me down, so let's hope it's not lying. I have to get food after the meeting, but I'll be sure to hurry back and post my results, so you can see them before you bail from work. :D

I really do love it.. I love the colors in it becaues I'm a gold/pale yellow girl at heart. It's gorgeous. Thank you again. :)

*fingers crossed for your weigh-in*

If I don't see it before I leave I'll be back online later to check... Happy thougths!

Well, Gerard Butler is going to be Beowulf with *happy sigh* Stellan Skarsgard as Hrothgar, so maybe things are looking up for him.

Oh thank God. Because he's made some Poor Choices so far. I mean.. Timeline? Lin, how did they manage to get that many good actors in one movie and have it suck so bad? They made Billy Connolly suck. HOW?! I had to watch it with the sound off and one hand on the fast-forward button. It was like watching a Britney Spears video.

We have faith in the power of Stellan.

When's it due out?

I didn't see Timeline, because wasn't Paul Walker in it? His acting is so bad he makes other people act badly. The only thing I like with him in it is The Fast and the Furious because it is already so ridiculous and unrealistic, he can't make it any worse.

Beowulf and Grendel</i>, 2005 some time. Eeeeee!

because wasn't Paul Walker in it?

Yes. *shudder* Hence the mute button. I mean, it was like he was just sucking the life out of everyone near him. He'd walk away from trees and they'd turn brown.

Didn't they film Beowulf in Iceland? I can't wait to see how that looks on screen. Yee!

Oi.. does one have to wait for a recruiter to come and sniff around one's resume or can one go hire one to find one a job what does not suck?

Yes, Beowulf is being filmed in Iceland. Lots of good Icelandic actors are also in it according to an LJ friend who lives there.

No, you don't have to wait for a recruiter to come sniffing around, although the problem with recruiters is that if they get you a job they charge the company for finding you, so a company looking at two equal resumes will usually pick the one NOT offered via a recruiter. Sometimes a recruiter is the only way to find out about jobs, though.

Have you submitted your resume to jobs on Monster and made it searchable there? That is often how I've been contacted by recruiters in the past, because a lot of the jobs on Monster are actually posted by recruiters. I can also ask the ones I know in NYC if they have colleagues in the DC area for you.

I remember flying over Iceland on my way to Scotland and thinking how wonderfully bleak parts of it were. Should be gorgeous.

Yeah, the resume's on Monster and it's searchable. That's how I got contacted by Manpower last time (and I went ahead and wrote to the local offices for them this morning just introducing myself). I'm just hoping not to get into the slightly dire straights I found myself in last time this happened so I'm trying to cover all my bases. If you wouldn't mind asking the NYC folks if they have guys down in Baltimore or DC I would really appreciate that. Thank you. :)

Melly. *loves on you*

I have a present for you. No, do not protest. It isn't much. I deliever it in person on New Year's Eve, yes?

And, as a friendly reminder, my tapes of Lost are always available for your viewing pleasure. *bows*

Oh Lala.. I just adore you, you know that?

You know that just being able to see you is going to be present enough, right? BTW, check your mail for home phone number later since I'll be without computer or cellphone as of either Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning of next week. Le sigh.

Lost? Rilly? I might could use that.. maybe.. um.. one night next week? I'm on my onesies for the whole week so... :D

The adoration is mutual, I assure you. *strokes your hair and tells you stories*

And just being able to see you and the other girlies is all the present I need, as well. <3 We should talk about the outing, if there's anything special you think we should do. I can't think of anything better than cheesecake for Lizzies, but I'm not that well versed in the ways of Baltimore. And there's always after...

Anyway, whatever you wish, sweetcheeks. My best friend from HS and College is in town for the holidays until Wed. morning, so I expect I'll be a bit busy with him Monday and Tuesday, but after that... (or before, if you want them delivered for you sooner *smooch*)

Clearly cheesecake is a requirement :) I can't think of anything specific really... should we do a group meal.. or should we invade someone's house (has cow potential)... um.. drinks and dessert somewhere? Little dingy Irish pub in DC? meep.

It's for earlier in the day on New Year's .. I'm still not sure where I'll be for that night.. though what'll probably happen is that I'll go down and see Matt after he comes off the water.. he's got no intentions of staying up until midnight so I'll be leaving when he goes to sleep and coming up to see you so we can head out for the Saturday debauchery :)
