Seriously. The hilarious part is that the guy who was out sick is in today; he showed me what went wrong, and it was the easiest fix I have ever seen in my life. Could have saved us all a lot of time and annoyance if web guy wasn’t acting like a total dick and just did his job.
To be fair, he did eventually add the last item for me as a quick workaround, but his emails were so petulant. And I was pissed off too that my morning work plans got screwed up, but I just complained about it to my friends like a normal person, I didn’t send pissbaby emails to my coworkers.
This dude at work is really pissing me off.
Well, I have to give a pre-event intro and run a post-event discussion this afternoon. My first time doing this at my job. Meanwhile, one of my colleagues is out on vacation and another is out sick so I’m covering two people’s work. And I’m pretty pissed off about it. I really needed this morning to prep for the…
Screw exercising outdoors during summer.
So far Outline is spectacular. I was apprehensive going in because I was looking for something a bit easier, but it’s so thoughtful—and full of seeing through men’s bullshit.
Well, first off, I really appreciate everyone giving me book recs on my post! It helped me figure out what I want to read.
Do you listen to the Reading Glasses podcast? They just did an episode about prison libraries and interviewed Jill.
That sounds really cute. I have been thinking of delving into the cosy mystery world.
I just don’t think she writes good romances. She writes men who are total assholes and treat the women terribly, and then they fall in love. It infuriates me. But it definitely sounds like Temeraire would work better for me.
It’s not really the beach it’s the heat and the sun. My skin always feels like it’s burning when I’m sitting out in the sun, even though I very rarely actually get a sunburn, and no matter how much water I drink it also makes me feel kind of faint and nauseated.
I mean, it’ll be bad because I hate being hot and I tend to get sick sitting out in the sun. But in this case I’m willing to do it because I want to spend time with this friend and there are a bunch of restaurants nearby I can pop inside if I really start to wilt, so it’s like, it’ll suck but I’m making a very…
I am (deep breath in) going to the beach (deep breath out.) A friend who I don’t get to see much is bringing her kids to a beach near me so I agreed to meet up with them for a little while. I’m giving myself permission to leave after an hour. Why don’t people just want to be inside when it’s 90 degrees out?!?
I’m curious about those. I have mixed-negative feelings about Uprooted and Spinning Silver, but it’s because of the romances. I was talking to someone on GT (maybe it was you?) who was reading the first book in the series and said there wasn’t a romance plot, so I’m very open to trying out at least the first one.
Ohhhhh man that was one of my Book of the Month picks and I have tried to read it like 3 times and can’t get into it. I have trouble with books that have a lot of made-up terminology or jargon. It bums me out because the premise sounds fantastic.
Oh I see. You want me to break my fucking heart.
Antarctic research station! That sounds rad.
I unfortunately did not like that book. Not the book’s fault, it’s just that one of my storytelling pet peeves is when characters don’t tell each other important shit. I’m weirdly excited for the movie though.
YA is often my go-to for situations like this when I need something quick to get me out of a slump. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard other good things about Sabriel, too.
That sounds so good, but I have low tolerance for horror. How scary is it?
