WHAT'S UP, HOW IS EVERYONE? I haven't done a HERE'S WHAT I'M UP TO update in a lot longer than I thought! Here is one!

0. Friday was my teacher's memorial service. I don't have much to say about it, only that it was devastating, and that I'm incredibly grateful that Robyn was there and willing to steer me around afterwards while I cried all over her.

1. I did a lot of work at work yesterday and then none of it ended up mattering so today I've just refreshed Tumblr and screamed a lot about Pacific Rim. It's been good for me.

UM, like two weeks ago I had my ANNUAL REVIEW, which I was expecting in like March, but whatever. Bridgette had hers a few days before mine and ended up FULLY VENTING TO DEBBIE about what a soul-crushing nightmare this place is and how she dreads coming in every day, WHICH IS LOLMAZING, and I went into mine fully prepared to back her up if necessary because even tough normally I will just silently hate everyone for years, I HAVE BRIDGETTE'S BACK ALWAYS. (Well, usually. There was this thing one time. We're not here to talk about that.) But what ended up happening was that Debbie and Paula were like "LOOK, BILL IS TERRIBLE AND WE ALL HAVE TO COPE WITH IT. CAN YOU COPE WITH IT? WE MAY NOT PLAN ON EVER GIVING YOU BENEFITS, BUT REMEMBER LAST WEEK WE ORDERED A PIZZA?"

ETA the other thing that happened in my review was that they were like YOU'RE PERFECT DON'T EVER CHANGE, AND IF YOU CHANGED ANYTHING, WE'D WANT IT TO BE MAKING YOURSELF MORE COMFORTABLE ASKING FOR HELP WHEN YOU'RE SWAMPED. So I will continue to not do anything ever.

ADDITIONALLY there has been some giant fuckup at Bill's restaurant in which they hired a third-party to handle their takeout/delivery system, and this ended in NOBODY EVER ORDERING TAKEOUT OR DELIVERY AGAIN, and I was sent a giant clusterfuck of a 30,000-name spreadsheet of every takeout/delivery customer they had in the POS database, and I was supposed to turn it into a mailing list for "SORRY, COME BACK!" postcards. I've been going through that spreadsheet, in addition to doing all my other shit, for over a week. YESTERDAY I ASKED PAULA IF THE POSTCARDS WERE IN FROM THE PRINTER YET BC I WAS CONCERNED I WAS HOLDING UP THE PROCESS AND SHE WAS LIKE "LOL YEAH NO WE'RE NOT DOING THAT." COOL JOB!!!!!!!!!!

2. Kate's getting MARRIED next summer and I went with her/her mom/her aunt/her sister in law/her fiance's friend Megan to go WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING, which was hilarious, because in terms of how much thought I put into clothes, the only thing that separates me from the average dude is the part where I consider how my boobs look in something. "That's much more of a winter dress." -EVERYONE, UNANIMOUSLY AND INEXPLICABLY. Something something necklines, something something sashes, something something ivory vs white? I DON'T KNOW.

WHAT A DAY )

3. LAST THURSDAY I MET UP WITH [profile] hongkongaton TO SEE PACIFIC RIM AND IT WAS GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT AND THEN WE GOT BERTUCCI'S AFTER AND IT WAS ALSO GREAT.

4. Yesterday's Morning Glories blew my mind. PROBABLY GONNA GO TO BOSTON COMIC CON THIS WEEKEND JUST TO WALK UP TO JOE EISMA AND BE LIKE "I HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS. NUMBER ONE, HOW DARE YOU? NUMBER TWO, CAN YOU TELL ME EVERYTHING?"

5. ANYWAY NOW I HAVE TO GO SUE SOMEONE FOR BILL OR SOMETHING. I'M NOT SURE WHAT FOR. GOOD TIMES.
