Someone came into the office of the game company I work for, and I'm not quite sure why they took this video, but they did, and the company is using it as their company video for the moment, and I'm in it! ^_^

I'm the only girl in the video. Not in the company, but in the video. Only half of us or less were there when the video was shot. But more importantly, the game I've spent the last few years working on and is now just about complete is featured. At 1:39 they start talking about Orion's Odyssey, the game that I did all the backgrounds for, and there's quite a few shots of the game, so you can see a bunch of the pretty backgrounds I made. ^_^ I also did a smattering of items and characters in the game, but my main contribution was the backgrounds, including the background of the box art (which, since this is going to be distributed digitally, will likely never see the light of day :P) but it's the art to the sides of the screen.

Link to the video. I orignally had it embedded, but it was stupidly huge for some reason. :P

I need to make another post sometime in the near future about what else is going on, but yay for showing my stuff off. ^_^

So apparently some website interviewed Ryan Morrison, my boss at Island Officals, about the game company recently. ^_^ Here's that interview along with random shots of our office. Oh, and there'a screen shot from our upcoming game, Orion's Adventure, the game where I did all the backgrounds! :D So you can see one of my backgrounds. It's not my most impressive, but it's mine, so yeah.

Camden County College, where Morrison talks about being the game design professor, is also the college where I work as a circulation assistant in the library. That's not how I met him, though. I just also happen to work there.

Dear woman with her fucking cheek pierced,

I know your bratty child is just as trying to you as he is to us, but maybe if you thought to, I don't know, discipline him or show him any attention instead of smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day, he might be better behaved. And no, no the copier will not take your print card. You can look at me like that, but it's not my fault the machine only takes change. And yes, when you reduce something that's 11x17 to 8 1/2x11, it's going to be very, very small. And I'm sorry you're "wasting your money" on copies that aren't coming out right because you apparently don't know how to use a copier. Yes, those little marks that tell you where to put the paper? That's where you put the paper. And why are you copying the entirety of your text book anyway? There's a week left of school. I just...please stop bothering me now. Please?

No love,
It's kind of a double edged sword. The coworker who was supposed to be leaving has (for now) decided to stay because of how sketchy the other job was. It apparently didn't even have a written up job description, nor any job security at all, so I don't blame her. And it's nice that we get to keep her as I am quite fond of her, but that means I don't get her hours, and I stay broke for the remainder of the year. Ah well.

[edit] *stabs work* You know it's sad when expecting the populace to be able to READ is asking too much of them. How hard is it to fill out a form with LAST name, FIRST name and COMPLETE address, in that order? For South Jersey, apparently very hard.
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..."

O_o Qua?

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.

Kevin, the evening librarian just got reamed out for saying to a smoker on campus "I hope you get lung cancer, mother fucker." God damn. Yeah, and the smoker was a seargent in the army. So he reamed Kevin out big time. Unfortunately, he's the only one who reamed Kevin out. I don't think any other disciplinary action is going to be taken against him. Dude, that's the kind of shit you get fired for. Well, at least I know my job is safe if I ever go off on someone here. :P Seriously, though, I do hope he gets in a little more trouble beause that's seriously unexcusable. I've been fired for saying less than that to a customer, and it was perfectly understandable, so to see him get off scott free kind of ticks me off.

In other news, I've started my trick or treat stuff! Yay! Just barely started, though, because I have a lot of work for IO to do this week. But I seem to be making pretty decent headway on work stuff, so it looks like I can hopefully finish up my first TorT picture tomorrow. Now if I only had any idea what do do for the rest of them....

The rest of the weekend is shot work-wise because it's party time! ^_^ I'm just so eager to give Kat her birthday present. I hope she likes it.

[edit] Ha! I know where I've seen her now! She was Maureen on Freak and Geeks. Yes. Thank you, brain.
In my random post yesterday, I neglected to mention the thing about work that's really pleased me as of late. I was an art/design major in school, and my job likes to take advantage of that. It's little things, but it really does please me.

Like, I was put in charge of making a sign to advertise that we're carrying school supplies in the vending machine, which is hung up throughout the building now. It's a stupid little sign, but it makes me smile to see my work on display like that.

Currently I'm making a mall type map of the library to put in the online catalogue for patrons. Again, it's just a stupid little map, but thinking that lots of people are going to view this and that it's going to help them makes me happy. ^_^
