I was going to call my entry "when it rains..." but keenween already used it, the punk  
Lots of work and orders to fill. And I can't go *fill* them because I'm waiting for some people to call me back. *mutters* I think they lied about this job only being 8 hours a week, since the girl who normally does it is FULL TIME.

And, heh, apparently once a manager, always a manager, because this woman just asked me to cover so she can go to dinner in case the girls on the floor have questions. I'm all "But I don't REMEMBER anything." Her: "You still count."

I think it's just because I sit in one of the offices and have my own phone. That automatically gives you managerial status in a place like this.

My wonderful friend and shop manager known to me as The Captain (as in Picard, not Morgan) had her last day today, but hopefully she won't shun us and will actually hang out with us underlings more now that she's not our boss.

And L stopped by work with her beautiful new baby!! *freaks out* Baby Zoe is healthy and adorable and has a full head of hair at 5 weeks old (apparently the cuteness is only while she's sleeping and not screaming, says L), and L is *much* healthier now than she was when she was pregnant, thank God. I'm in so much babyswoon right now I can't even cope.

But mono is an amazing thing -- I'm actually too tired to want one of my own right now. (*gasps* all around)

*glares at phone* I don't think these people are actually calling me back. I suppose I'll go in the shop and fill orders and... manage. Or something.

Also: rejoining the rat race even in my limited capacity means I'm way behind on emails and really every other form of personal communication. Sorry. Working on that.

elly, who is jealous you have a shredder AND a toll-free number. These are things that should be exploited. yo.

I know!! If I were MacGyver, I could probably find a way to power a small nation with just those two items.

Or turn them into nuclear devices and blow something up. But yeah, power. Riiiight. I'm not all about destruction. Nope. Not me. *whistles innocently*

Don't know where it is now, but your fanfic meme was cute. Of course, I could only appreciate the XF bit, but appreciate it I did.

Hmm. Did the meme disappear? I can still see it, but I was messing around with filters to try and spare my non-fandom-inclined friends from having their friends' pages comandeered by such nonsense... but I *know* I put you on the list of fandom-inclined-friends... *puzzled.* The ways of livejournal are many and mysterious!

Sorry I missed your online truth or dare thing, hope it went well! My ex-boyfriend spent today here after a few months of world traveling so my presence was needed in the real world. Some other time!

The meme is there again. I cannot explain where it went.

You were missed at Truth or Dare. I will leave you with the dare though, which you can stare at as people do when they pass a deadly accident on the road; they just can't help themselves though they know they shall be horrified. Enjoy! http://xfmufic.tripod.com/stories3/notwhoyouthink.txt

HAHAHAHA. Oh, xfwriter how we have MISSED you!! And by MISSED I mean NOT AT ALL! Hee. I can't believe you found that. How spectacular.

Did anyone make it through to the end?

And yes, tis sad about Truth or Dare :( It went well, though? Next time!

Re: *dies*
I was just browsing through the new stories at XFMU mainly looking to see if that story by Karen you were drooling over was in there...but there it was. I looked. I did not make it through. I read the first page, then skimmed as little as possible. I think I'd rather peel my eyeballs layer by layer than actually read the whole thing through.

Re: *dies*
That's a really unfortunate image. Given the choice, I pick xfwriter. I really do.

Oh, as long as I don't have to beta for her. Or play ridiculous rpg games with her online because she harrasses me EVERY FIVE SECONDS. Aaarrrrghhhh. *beats things*

Okay, nostalgic fit of rage over now. G'night!
