Pond Skimming!

So, long story short, I decided to say "Phuket!" to the stupid government job (possibly against my better judgement, but I'm going with my gut here) and stay with O.A.R.S.. I have way too much fun there to leave! Saturday was especially fun.

I give you, Pond Skimming in a RAFT! XD

ETA: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDGE! >____< Way to tell me AFTER I've told my O.A.R.S. boss that I'm leaving that the job offer isn't official till after your board meeting next month!!! Why not wait till it was acutal approved to ask me if I wanted it?!?!?! ;~~: I feel like crap =(



So, yeah. The job (mentioned here, here and a bunch of other places in my journal because I'm a boring old broken record) I applied for back in December, got tested for along with 68 others in January, got tested for again and interviewed for with 9 others in February, and eventually got rejected-from-yet-came-in-a-close-second in March.... CALLED ME AN HOUR AGO TO OFFER ME THE JOB!

Yes, I got the job which is great, but I've been back at O.A.R.S. now for three weeks. I love them, I really do, but I couldn't think of any rational reason not to take the other job. So I went in and talked to my boss, and she was disappointed but understood... So, staying with O.A.R.S. till the new job starts in May.

Wow. Life why do you do this to me? Why couldn't I have gotten the job 3 weeks ago so I wouldn't have to be such a hassle to O.A.R.S? I feel so guilty. =(

So, uh,

YAY! For new well-paying job with growth potential!


BOO! For making me act so shitty towards a company that has given me so much.

My layout looks so stupid on my giant work monitor. Waaaah! ;~~; (I'm on my lunch break!) My screen resolution at home is 800x600 so I always do my layout with that in mind. But it looks so ridiculous on a larger screen. =( I wonder if I should design for a larger resolution in the future, or just continue making them to my personal screen resolution preference seeing as I look at my layout more than anyone else ever will (friends see it on their friends page which is in their own layout)....

Blah... 2 and a half more hours till the weekend and I'm just hoping I have enough work to fill it. That's the only drawback of my seasonal position starting over a month earlier than it did last year, a lack of tasks. I need to keep having things to do or I won't have a job (well I would in a month when things get busy for the summer, but my hours would be cut) and I like being employed.

I especially like being employed here at O.A.R.S.. It's a cool place to work really. Beyond free/discounted river rafting and kayaking (two of my favorite outdoor activities EVER!) it just has a fun, laidback atmosphere even when everyone is swamped and stressed. Plus like last summer, in a 6 month span there was like 4-5 parties! XD It's a rather liberal "crunchy granola" company, but I like it. =)

I'm really excited for next weekend. O.A.R.S. is sponsoring Bear Valley Ski Resort's end of the season "Pond Skimming" party/event. If you haven't heard of it, pond skimming is where people ski down a hill and into a pond. Whoever makes it furthest out into the water on their skiis before falling in wins! =) The O.A.R.S. people are taking a raft down the snowy hill into the pond! Hypothermia never sounded so good. I can't wait! =D There's also free skiing/snowboarding for O.A.R.S. employees. I've never tried either, but I'm open to falling on my face.

At work right now were also doing 4-week-long "Biggest Loser" competition. I decided to to the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred... my everything hurts.... =(

Sorry for rambling about work, but I feel guilty doing LJ here, even on my lunch break, so my mind is kinda preoccupied. Got to go, lunch is over now!

Marry, shag or throw off a cliff?

Rules if you want to play!
1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures and the names of 3 people.
4) Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.

femmephantom assigned me: Kiba (Wolf's Rain), Zuko (Avatar: The Last Airbender) and Schuldig (Weiß Kreuz)... From the moment I saw the names I knew exactly what my answer was.


I mean, come on XD One's an adorable little puppy and the other's a crybaby mama's boy (I kid, I kid).

Schuldig, on the other hand... Well, look at him! X3 That explains the shag and marry answers. Anyone familiar with his character who DOESN'T think he'd totally deserve to be shoved off a cliff has a screw or twothousand loose..... and maybe he'd share Crawford with me. X3

If you brats didn't like this movie so much then Rock You Super Pets would never have made a Frank costume for you brats to use. And if they'd never made it I would never have had to have it randomly pop up in my battle arena and scare the ever-living crap out of me and nearly give me a heart-attack startle me.

Oh God I can barely look at it. D= It's creepy even in chibi form. ;~~; It watches me sleep, I know it! DO.NOT.WANT!... >_<

Hi everyone!

As mentioned in my friends-only whine fest, my sister is gone (and no longer stealing my internet by having it attached to her stupid laptop) so YAY HAPPY TIEMZ!!! The past 10 days have sucked more ass than Ron Jeremy. Anyways. To occupy my time/escape from my sister, I reverted to my childhood and made a collage and ate a lot of glue in the process.

I will try to catch up with everyone’s entries over the weekend. I am sooo far behind! With all the weissday entries (and people like mine XD I am so surprised and flattered!), a gazillion awesome looking writings from ahpookishere whom I was already behind on anyways and vicious_lullaby … I am sorry guys and anyone else’s wonderful stuffers I didn’t mention (I have only gotten a cursory glance through my flist from the past 10 days ;~~; I WILL do it this weekend! But I have to get early so I’m going to bed XD

a FAIL and a (possible) WIN

mood: optimistic optimistic

Well, I’ve been holding out on posting anything because I wanted to have news of my job interview results. Well, there is news and it is bad, I suppose. I didn’t get the job. Poop. But I did come in like second (though the anal perfectionist in me still quips: second is still losing!) And they’re going to keep me on file for however many months incase something else comes up. And hey, I didn’t cry! =D And I totally expected myself too, but nuh-uh! This upper lip is Viagra-quality stiff!

So yeah, that’s lame. No bookoo paycheck, no benefits, no end to the incessant questions about school and what I’m doing with my life, and no business trip to Rancho Cordova (LMAO). Door slammed…. Buuuuuuuuut, because there’s always a big butt, there’s some cracked windows.

I got a call Wednesday from Curves (FYI ladies-only gym), asking if I was still interested in working there. Dudes, I applied there in like October XD But I said yes, because I never turn down a job interview, whether I think I want the job or not, because it’s good practice. I’ve been on 10 interviews in my life, have landed 4 and one is still undecided, so I think my track record is relatively good. But that’s neither here nor there, so anyways-

Went in for the interview. The lady was so nice and the job seems like so much fun! She seems to like me too and invited me to come in this morning for a work out and a little training/practice at doing the coach thing. (I don’t have the job yet but I think it all went well). One thing emphasized was being proactive in sales and bringing in clients (you get commissions) and guess what I instigated a sale! Don’t even have the job and I’m makin’ them money! LMAO. Hopefully that worked in my favor.

Right now my goal is to have gotten the Curves job, go back to OARS and balance the two out. I think it’d be an awesome combo. And if Curves doesn’t work out, I still have my beloved river rafting people. They tell me they miss me XD I just hope my boss getting a reference call from the CSS people didn’t put her off hiring me back ;~~; I have to e-mail her before Monday. It’ll all work out. Que sera sera, lol wut?, and all that jazz.

Funny thing about Curves though, if I get it, is the concept of me working as a coach/rather vanilla personal trainer. XD Seriously it’s a big case of this:

Seriously. After I got home from the interview I put on my “I ♥ Carbs” shirt and ate a piece of cake.

Answer me these questions thr--- er, five....0_o

location: Chair
music: "All the Things She Said" -T.a.t.u.

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

From delfeus:


My first experience with AMVs was way back in 2003 at this site when I was looking for yuri. First one I saw was Sephiroth’s Gravity of Utena vid. I was hooked. Made my first one a few months later.

Since then I’ve made a grand total of 88 of the suckers… I love AMVs =) In most cases (there have been a few exceptions) the story and inspiration has come entirely from the song, not the anime itself. It’s really about the music for me.

I love watching AMVs too. AMVs are a big source of where I learn about new animes and new musical artists. That’s why I feel it’d be dumb for the music and/or anime companies to press charges against the editors, because AMVs have cost me plenty in the purchase of music and DVDs, same with a lot of editors. Lol. They’re free advertising! A good AMV editor (not me XD) can make an anime look way better than it actually is anyways =P

Weiß Kreuz

Oh Weiß Kreuz, something always brings me back to you. I discovered Weiß Kreuz 7 years ago when googling self mutilation and a Farfarello profile popped up! Lol. I read about him and Schwarz and decided that I must watch the show! So I did, waiting for Schwarz to pop up, and happened to like all the Weiß boys too. I won’t lie, first go ‘round with the series I was a diehard Aya fan girl and spent a lot of time obsessing over Yohji/Aya. Lol. But Crawford/Schuldig has always been my OTP and I’ve never gotten tired of it.

Though I love the Weiß boys, it’s Schwarz that keeps me interested. They’re fairly unique to any other anime I’ve ever watched and I love what some of my favorite fanfiction authors manage to do with the four of them. =) My love for the series waxes and wanes, but it’s never died out. Right now I’m totally into it full-force again! Lol.

Yami no Matsuei

Oh Yami no Matsuei… Lol. I had a love-hate relationship with this series. I first watched it back in like 2001 back before it was all that popular or licensed. I was still totally obsessed with Gravitation and the thought of a new shouen-ai/YAOI series had me thrilled. All the reviewers really played up the YAOI factor. So I bought the import DVDs and watched it….. And was totally disappointed. Lol. I didn’t get the meaning of subtle back then. So I re-ebay-ed my DVDs and forgot about it for a few years…. Re-watched it with older eyes and loved it! Lol. Though I still don’t like Hisoka =P

Tatsumi is the best! XD


Oh Ran, my first Weiß Kreuz love. I went in to the series fully prepared to be nothing but a Farfarello and Schwarz fangirl (which eventually happened, the being a Schwarz girl part much more than being a Farfie-fan part) but your silent brooding stole my adolescent heart and filled the role that Yuki from Gravitation had. XD I was ->SUCH<- and Aya fangirl. I still have a couple collages of him hanging up here in the office XD

I have grown out of him since then. I still love him, along with almost all the Weiß Kreuz characters, but not in such a fangirly way. Lol. He’s just such a little black dress. Goes well with all the other Weiß boys, quite a few of the lady characters (I don’t care who you are, Aya/Manx is HOT!), and is the only Weiß boy that I enjoy shipping with Schwarz members. And, being Koyasu’s most beloved brain child, he gets some of the best footage in the series to work with for AMV purposes =3


Oh T.a.t.u. (why I am starting all of these explanations with “oh _______,” ???), how I love you. My newly realized bisexuality and love for the ladies burned intensely when I came across your video for “All the Things She Said” as I channel flipped so many, many years ago. I was so drawn in, but quickly changed the channel when my mom came back in the room. Lol.

Anyways, since then I’ve fallen in love with their other music. I know that their “relationship” and lesbianism was a front to get more fans and attention, but I don’t mind. I don’t mind because even if they aren’t gay and/or a couple, the integrity of their lyrics and the power of the Sapphic theme that runs in a lot of their songs is something not seen a lot in music. I love that they give a voice to some of the hardships gays face, and do it with emotional intensity, even if it isn’t something they’ve experienced first hand.

Certain lines of theirs just bring me to tears sometimes:

“Mother looking at me, tell me what do you see? Yes I’ve lost my mind” -All the Things She Said

“Are we in love? Do we deserve to bear the shame of this whole world?” -Stars
