So I was all set to go to work today. Then I got there and discovered that the manager I am beginning to despise with every ounce of my being was working alone. I can't stand working with him when he's by himself because he has me do a bunch of crap that's not in my job description. I've worked for theatres so long that I know how to do most everything. It wouldn't be a big deal if he asked, but he NEVER asks. He tells. Like it *IS* my job to do these things and I'm falling down on the job. Piss off, ass clown!

So since I wasn't scheduled and I was just going in for extra hours, I left and went and watched Pride and Prejudice.

Now what can I say about that? Matthew MacFadyen is sexy, but he's no Colin Firth. It was all right, but there were some parts where I wanted to scratch my eyes out. Plus everyone had loads of hair. I don't know why I noticed this in particular, but they were a very hairy bunch. I dunno. It wasn't bad or anything. I think I just wanted... more. It could have been better. Though it had some lovely cuts and shots to it. And I was pleased that they left Keira Knightley with her naturally flat chest. That was wonderful. I like a heroine who doesn't have to be weighted down with a D cup and cleavage up to her chin. But i suppose that's because I have always been rather flat-chested myself. LOL.

eta: I think I'm going to have to kill my brother's ex. She's become very annoying. At the very least I'm punching her in the face at least once. She has been calling here since yesterday afternoon. About every half hour. My brother doesn't want to talk to her. Can't she take a hint? I'm about to hint to her face with my fist. She even called last night at 2:30 in the morning. And when she calls every 30 minutes or so, she doesn't just call one time. She calls like three times in a row and hangs up when the machine picks up. Gonna kill her. It's getting on my very last nerve.... which my nerves are already very frayed right now.

HP GoF sneak tickets... check

Wednesday Addams costume aired out for tomorrow night... check

rum... check

Nothing dulls the pain of a crappy job where they don't give you the next Harry Potter movie like rum. Not that that's the only reason I'm drinking tonight. It was just a bad day. I think I need to put in PotC. I must say I was really liking all the scenes with Lex and the professor in Smallville tonight. That was a yummy-fest. Might have been heightened by the consumption of rum though. And did I hear right? Is JM's character's name Professor Fine? Damn skippy. He's very aptly named. Professor Fine indeed. LOL.

Yes, I am breaking one of my own rules, (never drink alone) but I was danged thirsty for something with an edge.

Please excuse me while I throw a f*cking tantrum.

LOTS of cursing ahoy )

We are NOT getting Harry Potter. People think I am joking, but I am so finished with that theatre now. I am tired of being the only person who is able to fully do my particular job around there. It's not worth it anymore. I was only sticking around for HP. It's so not worth it now. I'm out. I'm miserable there, and I'm tired of having nothing to look forward to. It's always the same, and it's been far worse since Patrick left. I've had enough. I've got more pride than this, and I'll go flip burgers at McDonald's if I have to. This company is starting to make me feel bad about myself for working there still, so it's time to go.

F*ck you, *company named removed*

Eat a used tampon, you money-grubbing vulture penis holes.

eta: [livejournal.com profile] tthjinni, I am going to get tickets for the sneak preview of GoF tomorrow at another theatre, so no worries. We'll still be watching it on Nov 17th at 11:59 PM. LOL. Also, one positive thing, [livejournal.com profile] txrangermark hid a final GoF poster for me. That brings my HP poster collection to 4.

UH!

I work for a shitty money-grubbing company. I just realized really how shitty they are today. There was this staff meeting yesterday that I didn't go to. I honestly forgot. But also, we always talk about the same things. Except there was one thing different about this one apparently. We are not supposed to offer butter for the popcorn anymore. If they ask for it, yes, but we are not to OFFER it any longer. Because our butter cost is too high.

What the shit is this shit? The butter cost is too high? WTF?

Honestly. It's F*CKING butter. How expensive can it be? If they didn't spend money on crap we don't really need like a new time clock with barcode readers, digital slide projectors that play video ads so this company can make even more money, and new computer sales systems, then maybe it wouldn't be such a big deal to ask someone if they'd like butter on their popcorn. Not that I'm in concession often, being the one and only projectionist currently (another subject for bitching about), but when I am in concession, I'm gonna be pimping that grease like it's ass at a whorehouse. I'm going to be hollering out if they'd like butter with that. I may even offer butter whether they have popcorn or not. I really need to find another job. That sort of penny-pinching BS goes against my comfort zone. Don't get me wrong. I am all for saving a buck, but this goes beyond being ridiculous to me. I feel like I'm working for "The Man" or something. I can't contribute to that. I'm too bohemian to work for such a place.

Talking to [livejournal.com profile] carinthea right now on MSN messenger.

My theatre is working out a deal where the Katrina survivors being housed in our city can come and watch free movies to provide them with some sort of escape for a while. I do hope our corporate office agrees to it... but they're so damn cheap. Oh well. If they say no, that's just another reason for me to hate that company, the cheap bastards. I can't wait until I find another job. I'm actually almost sick with wanting to work anywhere except where I currently work. They treat their employees like dirt. I just got a raise though. Get this... it was a WHOLE quarter.

In fic news... will be working on the R/T fic today.

to do list:
* Snape/Willow drabble
* Faith/Charlie fic
* next part of Eternal Sunshine
* next next part of Eternal Sunshine
* Remus/Tonks fic
* Draco/Blaise fic
* finish Duets with a Remus/Dru and a Faith/Charlie
* next part of Trick of the Light
* smutty piece with currently undecided characters
* I owe [livejournal.com profile] carinthea a mini.
* Dawn/Connor fic of at least 5 parts
spankerella: (wtf)
Ok, so something strange happened at work before I left today. I didn't really think about it at the time, but now I'm sorta... wtf? I worked a little box office today while people ate or took smoke breaks. I should point out that I was rarely alone in there for this to make sense. If I wasn't sitting in there with someone else, there were customers at the window. Before I was leaving the manager on duty asked me if I had done anything "weird" with the money. Define weird. Well, because the money seemed to be short. Wtf? Seriously... wtf? All I did was sell tickets and someone was usually in there with me. But other times I was in there I straightened the money. Someone else was in there those times as well. I have this anal thing where I don't like the money all sticking up every which way. Because it get's snagged up in the drawer and gets stuck behind it... which is probably where it is right now. So I wanna know why I am being asked this shit because unless I knocked someone out or drugged them or became invisible, there's no way someone is not gonna notice me pocketing money if they're sitting or standing RIGHT THERE.

I'm probably being overly sensitive, but it bugs me because I'm not that dumb. If I were gonna steal, which I don't care enough about that job to even bother getting into that much trouble for it, but if I were, I'd at least be smart and attempt to hide it.

Now I am going to post new challenges at [livejournal.com profile] malfoy100, [livejournal.com profile] blaise100, and [livejournal.com profile] tthdrabbles. I am also going to try to finish the Blaise-y fic I started for Jinni tonight.

eta: Now if it's missing posters, they'd be right to question me. There's a Goblet of Fire teaser poster that few people ever saw before it went to my house to hang out with my PoA and CoS posters. There's also a Narnia poster that never even made it upstairs. And somewhere out there there's a print of CoS that's missing a good two feet of Snape and Draco.

I did not get that job. They sent me a letter. Must go cry about it now.

So I work with this girl. We'll call her... Bossy the Cow. She likes to order people about. Which wouldn't be so bad if she hadn't been employed there at the most two months. We kinda work on seniority or experience. She doesn't have either. I really don't like people who think they're better than me and most everybody else when I know they're not. She was telling me about my job today. She does that again... I'm handing her her ass on a projector platter. She's a braggart and arrogant to boot. I don't like that either. I usually just ignore people I don't like at my nothing job, but I found out today that I'm not the only one who has issues with her. The kindly my-grandma-aged lady who works box office some weekdays doesn't like her. And if Miz Jean doesn't like you, you are doing something wrong. I heard so many people complain about Bossy the Cow today it almost gave me an eye twitch. It was wild. Plus, she's also a suck-up. In certain situations, sucking up is fine. Just don't be so brown-nosy and smarmy about it. But this job? Not one of those situations. This job is not a place you want to be known as the suck-up. Bossy the Cow annoyed me so bad today that when she told me bye, I said bye back but in my head it was "Bye, super douche cunt-bag". *sigh* I am such a lady. *snort*

Anyhow, it's been a long day. I'm going to plug on on those rewrites for a bit then I am going to bed.
