So I forgot my own blogiversary. 4 years on may 10th. I can't believe I've stuck around here for so long. I usually burn out and go on to different things, but I keep coming back here.

This week has been nasty busy. had an "encounter" with my husband, we made up, but still have a lot of work to do. We're getting a few references for a good couple's therapist. Hopefully we can work things out and continue to move forward.

Still recovering from seeing Mindless Self Indulgence and The Birthday Massacre. Totally effin' awesome concert. I can't wait for them to come back to Seattle again.

We also got to play rescuers. Jimmy (lead singer of MSI) asked for the audience to dress him. People started throwing up stuff, and as he tossed stuff back, there was a jacket that someone had put lots of work into, he tried to throw it back to the right person, but overshot it. A lady (who was very fat and decided she could still wear a vinyl corset) got it and decided it was hers. It ended up belonging to a friend of a good friend of mine. I went and told her he had had this jacket for over 10 years and would be devastated if he could not get it back. She actually DEMANDED that a band member come and tell her to give it back. We got the guitar player Steve Righ? to tell her to give the fucking jacket back. Totally awesome, and I got hugs!!! Man those guys were sweaty. Hug from Steve and Kitty made me all fuzzy and giddy back to the car.

Got up today and went to Toys 'R' Us for the Darkrai event (get an ultra rare pokemon), and got two, one for each game. Very exciting.

So all in all, a crappy start but a good end to a week.

P.S. Hubby says I can't have a bacon themed tattoo *sniff*

Urgh...

So... yesterday kinda sucked.

As I was getting out of the shower, something popped in my shoulder and made it so I couldn't turn my head without stabbing, horrendous pain. I decided that I promised people I would be there, downed some ibuprofen, and hopped on the bus to Seattle.

While on my way there, I was contacted by everyone that was going saying that they wouldn't be able to make it. I ended up being there all on my own, in pain, waiting for anyone else that might show up.

No one did. *sigh*

I made the best of it though. It was way too hot to walk outside at the festival, so I wandered around the stores inside, got some Tiger Balm at Tenzing Momo, and a few bumperstickers.

Jake came and picked me up so that I wouldn't have to ride the bus back home, we wandered around Bellevue Square, and went home to relax with no parental units around.

Today was a bit better. I'm still in quite a lot of pain, but I haven't had to move from the couch all day.

Two good friends I've made while working at Nintendo had their last day of work today. One was moving on to a "real" job, a start to his career, and the other is moving to Oregon to live with his soon-to-be in laws until he goes off to the air force. I brought them cupcakes, berated them for leaving, and wished them the best of luck. It's strange how close I feel to some people I've worked with for just four months.

As with the tears? Well my supervisor did it again. Long story short, my husband was stuck at work ALL NIGHT, and I had so much trouble sleeping. I got up, went to work, and realized that I had finals tonight and needed to prepare. I asked my sup if I could leave one hour early, and I would make sure that quota was more than filled. Instead of addressing that, she instead proceeded to basically "snarl" at me how five people didn't bother to show up and three have already left early because they felt tired. I was shocked at how fast she can turn. I can understand being upset that I coincidentally want to leave early on the first good day of spring, but considering that this was only the second time I've had an unauthorized absence, it should not have been a huge deal.

To be honest, she scares me to death, I have to take off my shoes and count my toes in order to keep track of how many times I've regressed to sobs and screaming because of this woman, and nothing was being done about it. I tried telling the temp manager, and she told me to write a report on what has happened, but did nothing to move me. I then went to my NOA manager, he said that he would have a talk with my sup, but I guess he didn't want to lose me.

I ended up bawling on my second aforementioned friend's shoulder on his last day, sobbing and shaking like a baby in front of all of my coworkers. More embarrassed than anything, I took off and tried to get away from everyone, hah, fat chance. I was rounded up and told that now was the time to talk to Andy (main temp boss guy) about what's been happening.

It's amazing the feeling you get when you get to the right person who will get things done. He asked for details, and wanted to know everything that I could remember word for word. He even stopped me before I left work to ask a few more questions and will follow up with me on Monday. Hopefully I might be moved somewhere else. To be honest, I don't mind staying until after our warehouse moves, which is in two weeks, I just don't want her to mess with me, or ANYONE else.

Ok.... now that that's off my chest, on to fun news.

I've been unofficially nominated, "Leader and morale coordinator" for our group of friends at work. A bunch of us are getting together tomorrow at 3pm to wander Pike St. Market to enjoy the festivities of their annual cheese festival. It started from a group of 2-3 to a horde of atleast 15-20 people saying that they will be there. We are so starved at work for some kind of fun and team building that people are starting to look for me to get going. It is a lot of fun because I can get people to laugh, and I'm making new friends, but I think it might be what's causing some frustration with my sup because I can get people to do things she has to crack her whip to get them to do grudgingly.

I'm also hoping to have a summer BBQ one weekend out on a lake. If I can get some more helpers, then it could include the whole warehouse. I'm hoping to pitch it to the temp agency and Nintendo to see if they can donate some funds/food to the cause. Would be fun to do summer games too like 3-legged race, etc. with prizes!

Well, that's it for now, just feeling wordy and getting it all out in one go. Parents will be gone tomorrow when I get home, and then 3 week house party!

anyone else interested in joining the shamble? I'm trying to convince my husband to go with me, so that would leave 3 seats in the back of our car we'd be willing to share.

It will be happening from 3-4:30pm on Oct 21st. Check the site for more info!

Went to the Seattle Gift Show today. My feet are swelling and screaming in pain as we speak.

Went to a lot of food places that have minimum purchases. The whole family is going through the lists and deciding what cases of what we want to order and split, mainly for food storage.

Jake and I found two Tibetan prayer bowls. They are absolutely beautiful and they resonate just like crystal glasses do. We have a small one that is decorated inside and out and has a high note. The other one is much larger and is plain brass. The tone from it is hard to hear, but you can feel it if you are near. Hmm... I wonder if a webcam + mic could pick up the sound.

Other than that, not much else goin' on. Just sittin' back and relaxing, resting up for the trip back to the show tomorrow.

'Ta ^_^

EDIT: Here's a video that has a lot of singing bowls in them, they sound so beautiful!

It's also one block south of Trax, so easy to get there and you don't have to pay for parking.
