Uuuuuuugh. I'm waiting to find out if I'm approved for an apartment I want and the waiting is KILLING ME. Like, I feel like I might barf from nerves.
Because this week needs to fuck off already, who's Groupdrinking with me?
1. Realtors, what part of "I have a dog" do you fail to understand? Sending me listings of rentals that allow only cats is useless.
Look what I got today!
WHAT HAVE I DONE. Please tell me to what degree this show is going to take over my life.
So I spent over an hour last night on a work conference call in which my function basically ended up being "here, let me Google that for you." This was last night and I'm still steamed about wasting my time. I offered to help out another group after hours under the assumption that they actually needed my help/opinion…
RIP Pebbles. I have a sneaking suspicion that my fish, assbutt that he is, is the prime suspect in this frogicide.
Or at least this stupid program I'm trying to use to analyze data. JUST BEACUSE A PROGRAM HAS BEEN AROUND THE LONGEST DOESN'T MEAN IT DOESN'T SUCK, FELLOW SCIENTISTS.
....drop what you're doing and go to Netflix to watch it right now. It's the best hard sci-fi movie I've seen in a long time. It literally had me holding my breath and biting my nails in the middle. I don't want to say too much because spoilers, but it's SO GOOD.
So my hair is now a really ugly brassy blonde, AND I have a nice little contrasting ashy blonde spot in the front where I missed putting the color on. Shit shit SHIT.
He's super cute. And there have been no tank cage fights with my Betta (yet). He looked REALLY pissed off when he first noticed the frog was there, but now he just looks at it like "wtf is this thing flailing around in my tank?" and swims away. So fingers crossed they can peacefully coexist.
Just a heads-up for my fellow science peeps/Cumbercollectives - Benedict Cumberbatch did a segment on The Naked Scientists podcast last year to promote the Cambridge Science Festival - I don't know how that escaped my attention before, but I just found out about it today on Tumblr and it's still worth a listen. I…
This is what my job search is starting to feel like.
So, I got a new phone yesterday (I know, I know, I almost bought an iPhone but I caved because this one was such a good deal too) that has Android Jelly Bean. And, it has this new-ish thing called Google Now. Apparently it periodically checks your GPS location (I know, Big Brother much?) and tells you how long your…
Who wrote a supremely nasty anonymous comment on a survey about a facility I manage as part of my job, which was seen by my boss and various department higher-ups: joke's on you, because I know exactly who you are. I remember you bitching about the same issue numerous times, and each time I patiently explained to you…
Winter can go fuck itself already.
...because it was a stupidly good deal, until PayPal shopblocked me. I think that's the universe's way of telling my dumb ass to not spend my money on shiny things I don't need. Even though I'm pouting right now as I look at my sad little outdated (but still perfectly functional) Android. :-(
Is it hidden somewhere obscure now? Or am I just being blind and not finding it?
I've been in a real slump lately, and I'm trying to figure out if it's just winter doldrums or actually being emotionally burned out. I find myself getting REALLY impatient (not with anyone at work, but then again I often work on projects by myself), but at home. I usually have a really long-burning fuse, but now I…
I am SO DONE with winter's bullshit. The weather this morning said we would get "some snow", not a fucking foot and half within three hours and THUNDERSNOW.
