Pardon me. Need to whine.

So. Tired. Want. To. Die.

Whine, whine, whine.

Okay. Now that that's done, I think I can go to work now. ;)

We'll just assume that my being there with half a brain is somehow better than my calling in sick and not being there at all, leaving them understaffed instead of just... underbrained. My perfectionism disagrees. (Also, the part of me that keeps gagging whenever I try to eat anything. Hate that *that* symptom's come back, oh yes.) The objections have been noted. *plasters on a grin*

In fandom news, I finally saw Battlestar Galactica's "Six Degrees of Separation." Six and Baltar are so my new favorite characters, which is excellent, considering how much I wanted them both to just get written out of the series. In fact, this might be my new favorite episode. In other pressing Battlestar Galactica thoughts -- how did Apollo become SO MUCH MORE of a freaking girl than Starbuck when they actually gave Starbuck the girl parts?

Also, "Before I Sleep" is still excellent, and has reinspired me to sit down with my Whacked-Out-Time-Travel-Fic. Must make time for that.

Edit: *facepalm* It would help if I left the house wearing a shirt. This does not bode well. (Nor does the fact that it's my longsleeved uniform top when we have people come in about every hour and go "I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW HOT AND HUMID IT IS! AND I'M FROM FLORIDA!" -- for the record, I can't believe it's *actually* worse than Florida. I just can't. It's just that nothing's air conditioned around here.)

Edit 2: Bwahahahahaha. Aaaaand, now I'm closing by myself (note: this never happens, as is not really humanly possible), somehow, due to an apparently massive scheduling oversight. Oh well, no one here to see me screw up, right? *still amused, though I'm sure the horror will set in later* Horror overturned. Scheduling screwup a typo. I get to remain amused.

Underbrained is the best word EVER.

*cuddles you*

omg, Whacked-Out-Time-Travel-Fic! Yes! Do it. *tries to send more inspiration, if possible*

It would help if I left the house wearing a shirt.

Ahaha. *laughs at you* I've almost done that before.

omfg, icon love! Bill O'Reilly really is an idiot, isn't he?
Rose Wilde-Irishrosewildeirish on June 13th, 2005 05:26 pm (UTC)
Well, currently it's 88 degrees with 55% humidity, so...not so horrid here, really. *g*

*snuggles you* Tell your boss you need help if humanly possible. And then remember - one. moment. at. a. time.

*hugs and well-wishes*

I don't know who your Floridians are, but around here, the Southerners are coping with the heat far better than the locals. Last night we had a mix of Americans and Canadians at dinner. My roommate from Kansas said something about how she needed to do some of the outdoor things she'd been hoping to do before the weather gets really heinous. The Canadians all gaped at her as if she'd grown another head. I took a wild guess: "Em, I think this is probably about as heinous as it gets."
Emily: "Really?"
Canadians (beginning to recover): "Uh, YEAH! This isn't hot enough for you?"
Emily: {puzzled) "Oh. Well that's not bad, then. I thought people said it was really going to get hot."
Little Redmylittleredgirl on June 13th, 2005 07:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, don't worry, we're not hardier than Canadians -- the locals are wilting here, too. But... don't you think that people from your area are used to A/C, too? That's the only explanation I can come up with -- folk are used to humidity & heat worse than this when they're outside, but here they're sleeping and working out and eating without air conditioning, since our center (mostly) doesn't have it, and are freaking out at the lack of air conditioned crack. :)

Or... they're just really odd. Usually those are the ones who flip out in the winter, not the summer!

I want to go home! *whimpers* But should really drag myself around the shop and do chores.

No, you're right--we do function much better with air conditioning. And my roommate's comments about it being not so bad here probably have to do with the fact that we have it; if we didn't, we would probably all feel like we were about to wither away, too. I've spent summers in NY without it, and at certain points, even heat-loving me has felt like I was about to die.

I want to go home! *whimpers* But should really drag myself around the shop and do chores.

*hugs and strength and wellness* I'm sorry you have to work when you're feeling so crappy, hon!

give me a call sometime soon when you're not dead. I have a funny story to tell you

And did you really leave the house with no shirt on at all? Do you need a recording of my voice so you remember to de-sock before showering?
