the revenge of the web orders  
I feel horribly ganged-up upon by inanimate objects. And, I suppose, the total strangers (who are animate) sending these inanimate emails and telephone calls. Just... a *lot* of web orders. And emails. And the phone hasn't stopped ringing such that I haven't even *listened* to my metric craploads of voicemails yet.

*buries head in paperwork, like ostrich*

I will get through today. I WILL.

I probably shouldn't have hit mystic_isles000, though. That was kind of unprofessional. Even though it was totally in self-defense because she jumped out at me from nowhere. *snuggles sister* She has apparently forgiven me, because she just came into my office and did her Jack-as-velociraptor-in-"Broca-Divide" impersonation for me. My day is much improved.

It's so nice to work in the same place, even if our coworkers (justifiably) believe we are complete and utter loony bin escapees.

It's a fun loony bin, though!

Yes, a loony bin becomes a nice getaway when the company is good...

Also, your icon? HAHAHAHAHAHA *dies*

Dude!
I wanna come work with you people! I am easily trained and more than happy to go buy people coffee. I just require $11 an hour base pay and health benefits.

And I'd even give up everything but dental just for the company.

:GLARES AT CURRENT JOB:

I wish...
I'm sure there's somewhere in this building you could get $11/hr. Must be. Just... you'd have to be more important than me, but I think you could handle that :)

*sad for you re: current job*

Little Red, back to the metaphorical salt mines.

Is Jack mining naked there???

;-)

...there could be... shrinkage.. issues, there. Dehydration and all...

On the other hand, Sam could then be required to dose him nightly with aloe, or something. Mm. hands in new places.

"That is definitely not your side-arm, sir."

"I'm naked, Carter."

"Indeed, O'Neill."

"Yeah, Jack, about that..."

"AH! Daniel, I don't wanna hear you complain. It's not like *you* spent the day--"

"Sir?"

"Carter?"

"Turn over."

"Oh. *muffled* I feel like toast."

LOL! Classic SG-1 moment! If only TPTB wrote in stuff like that!!!
nenya_kanadka on July 12th, 2004 08:17 pm (UTC)
...!
That is just...so wrong, and yet rather amusing...

Did they ever mine in salt mines on the show? I remember one where Daniel went off to be semi-royalty and look hot, whilst the other three were mining *something*, but I don't remember what it was...Daniel got addicted to the sarcophagus, I believe...

Er. Yes. Eheh.

*innocent* Me, derail the conversation from naked!Jack to hot!Daniel??

Ah. I now feel bolstered enough with gleee to tackle the voicemails. Happy thoughts. YAY!

(and me and aj were just talking about Sam and Jack and aloe last night. Hmm. Must be a sign. Or... something.)

Dude, if my job involved Jack mining naked, do you REALLY think I'd be taking time out to post to LJ about it?
Lisa Yaegerlisayaeger on July 12th, 2004 11:25 pm (UTC)
Dude. Such a good point. So often, work interrupts my Jack daydreams...

You *work* with a fellow-blogger? That is too cool.

(I will refrain from asking, if you are so busy, why are you posting to LJ--because I *know* why, and if *I* had 'Net access & the ability to blog & not have my bosses hate me....)

Little Red: anise - amandamylittleredgirl on July 12th, 2004 08:51 pm (UTC)
She's new to the blogging and the Stargate universe. We were raised sort of collectively, and as such, she is my sister :) It's still very cool to work with her. (Why is that so surprising?)

I will refrain from asking, if you are so busy, why are you posting to LJ

Because I am a bad person. A lot of my job is fits-and-starts between calls but I can't leave my desk if I'm waiting for someone to call back (and the rest of the process of dealing with these orders takes place in other rooms), so... pretty much everyone with a computer has an internet vice in this place. :) And now you're making me feel guilty. Shame on you :-P

(Plus, it's a sanity-saving thing. "Okay. *breathe* Answer these 4 calls of doom and then you can check LJ again. *breathe*")

So...

...what is pants!verse? I am terribly curious! Obviously it involves pants, and possibly the strategic removal of same, but...

*looks inquisitive*
Little Red: monastery - ellymylittleredgirl on July 13th, 2004 05:04 pm (UTC)
*laughs*
pants!verse came from a long chat between me and elly427 and aj about how Sam and Jack really need to work on their *friendship* (a la Star Trek pairings like Picard/Crusher and Riker/Troi), and also, how we could arrange it that Sam and Jack date while on SG-1 (because ten thousand fanfic writers under the age of 14 can't all be wrong). We came up with the solution that they wouldn't realize, or admit, that they were dating. They're just FRIENDS! Who hang out. A lot. And go places, like to dinner and to the movies. And kiss, sometimes, because they are friends and care about each other. But they're not dating, so it's okay. And along the way, Sam would come up with a bunch of strange rules to make absolutely sure they aren't dating, because she's Sam, the most important of which is that the pants stay on.

Basically, this results in them building a solid friendship and being very very happy, because they get to be together all the time and get to know each other and *gasp* fool around without there being all this ANGST. And, incidentally, also makes it a lot more likely that they will be able to get into a "real" relationship without pants later without crashing and burning, because they had this long warming-up period of friendship and fun and pants. YAY!
