So I come into work today, and since it's just me and one other person, they leave a list of what needs to be done. I'm skimming the list as per usual, and then, at the bottom I see "I'll try to call you. Lisa's last day is Wednesday..."
Let me explain how my job works. I'm one of the two night people. I work half the night hours during the week and she works the other half, and we have alternating Saturdays (though due to switching and time off and whatnot, I've been working every Saturday for the past month). That "she" who shares the night horus with me would be Lisa. Who's apparently leaving. In 4 days. And I'm sure I'm not the only one who's just finding this out now, since they didn't mention it to me when I worked Thursday.
So what this means is that I'll be taking over most, if not all, of her hours for the rest of the semester, which is actually quite fine with me. I had been planning on buying myself a Netbook, but then car problems and other things meant I no longer had the money, but it looks like that won't be a problem now. :P But it kind of pisses me off being that, as I've mentioned, I've worked the past month of Saturdays straight in anticipation of two particular Saturdays off in the coming weeks....and now Lisa's screwing me over. Don't get me wrong, it should be okay. I mean, there's no way in Hell I'm missing out on DC or even going in next week (I want a Saturday off, damn it! ^_^) and I think they'll be fine with that, but my weekends will likely be shot for the rest of the year. Luckily I didn't have anything else planned.
But so yeah. Whoo money...? I guess.
In other news, finished watching Princess Tutu. Dorky name but great show. Quite intense, and though the sheer amount of dancing is amusing, it's quite lovely to watch. And the story is really intricate and twisty in the good way at times. :) The ending is also quite unexpected, but good.
It's about a duck who falls in love with a prince whose heart has been shattered so that he may seal away an evil raven. The duck gains the power to turn into a girl, and that girl can then turn into a princess, whose mission it is to return the shards of heart to the prince so that he may be whole again. The only problem? Other than the prince's over protective knight and the sultry crow, if the princess ever tells the prince of her feelings, she will turn into a speck of light and disappear. So it's all tormenty and fun. Also, what with the ballet theme, you not only get some intense dance numbers, but a running soundtrack of songs from various ballets that really lend an air of beauty to the show as a whole. I'd definitely reccomend it.
Youth in Revolt is coming out next weekend!! :D You have no idea how I've been looking forward to this. If I haven't mentioned it yet, I read the book back in the mid nineties, and it's remained a favorite of mine ever since, so to see it as a movie should be fun. I'm sure they'll butcher it all to hell, but the book is so good and so strange and so funny that there's no way it can't be at least a little good.
NaNoWriMo next week, too. I don't think I'm going to be able to get my netbook in time for the start of it, but maybe halfway into the month I should be able to. Which would really help me because of my odd insistance about writing outside, and what with IO and the prospect of working more hours at the library, if I can skip the transcribing step, it'll save me a lot of time.
Ahhh! Halloween. Yeah. I am nowhere near being done my TorT stuff. D: Maybe I should have taken on less than 5 pieces. No, I think I'll be able to get them done. I mean, I know I will, but I think I'll be able to get them all done and not have any of them look too sketchy. I just need to get my butt in gear. At least I have them all planned out now. *crosses fingers*
In suck news, I have no phone or internet at home at the moment. It went out some time yesterday morning, and there's apparently a guy coming to look at it today, but it'd damn well better be fixed by the time I get home. You have no idea how much shit we've had to deal with over phone and internet in the past few months. It's really pissing me off at this point. We pay for the service, we shouldn't have to have someone come out once a month every month to make it work. *grumbles*
Oh, and I got a new mp3 player! I don't talk about the little real life things a lot, but my old mp3 player died last week, so I got a new one, and I actually figued out how to do a playlist on this one! :D I bought Greg's latest CD a couple weeks back, and it's residing on my player teasing me as I shuffle through songs because I won't let myself listen to it until I'm on the road with Kat. The player died last time I tried this, so I'm trying for the drive to DC instead. But now that I've found the playlist function and successfully maneuvered it, I shan't have to listen to his teasing anymore.
