Can I run over someone with my jeep?

So, there was this guy I used to work with oh... A good four or so jobs back. Right out of highschool. We flirted for weeks, I broke up with my then boyfriend at the time because of him, because I don't cheat, and I was pretty much out of love with my BF anyway. All over but the crying, literally. (That sounds worse than it was, I swear.)

Anyway, I went on one date with this guy on like a Saturday, and then found out Monday that after our date he went to see his ex (who, I would like to state for the record, I did NOT know was pregnant with his kid at the time.)

Had it out with him, broke it off. Left the job.

Years later, guess who shows up at my current location in a different department? THAT GUY! We nod to each other, never really talk, he leaves. I find out after he left that he told that department that we used to date. I set the record straight, but I get the feeling that they're just humoring me. I mean, he worked with them. Yes, I had been there longer, but still... Ugh

And here's the best part. GUESS who moved into my across the street neighbor's house? Go on, guess. I dare you.

So this fuck head now lives across the street from me. And I find out recently that not only was he telling people that we dated, he told people that we were having sex together, ON THE JOB, and the first place we worked together. Like, in the storage closets.

I just... He's a fucking fuckhead. His GF kicked him out, which is why he lives with my neighbor. I just... really want to run him the fuck over with my car. I don't even want to go in my front yard in case he's outside or looking out a window. I hate that he lives there. I just... Needed to vent for a moment.

EDIT:

ALSO!!!! In the last 2 days, I have seen more auto traffic on my street that I've seen all year. And most of it is going to that house. I just... When I would get out of the pool, I could lay in the street, that's how quiet my street it. And now, there's a car like every 20 minutes. It's freaking me out.

Have made the decision to finally buckle down and WATCH Teen Wolf rather than just read all the Sterek fanfic I can get my hands on. I've done the first ep, but never managed to go back and watch more. Well, no, that's a lie. I've watched chunks of the episodes, but not all in one sit through. There is a high embarrassment factor when it comes to the character Stiles most of the time, and as he's my favorite, some scenes are hard to watch. Like, I've had to pause even the little chunk I've been watching and walk away for a moment.

Which is a major reason I hate watching live tv. If something happens, then I can't just pause it, get up, and come back in a minute. It's suffer through and keep going. But then again, that might actually be better than stewing over whatever it is that bothers me about a particular scene. *shrugs*

But yes, actually watch all the episodes all the way through. Since you know, I know have Teen Wolf Fanfic pending in my GDrive. *hands head*

Don't try to buy my affection, I'm not that kind of girl...

So, it's been about a month since my job cut my hours down to only 5 a day, rather than a full 8. It's been... hard. I barely made enough to pay the bills before I lose hours. Now, it's almost impossible. Thank god I have a second job. I may pay the bills a few days late, but they get paid.

Today, the agency girl comes in to give us our stubs, and she has a present for me. It's a $50 gift card, given because apparently I have "Good Attendance".

I just... I need the money, but what the hell? I just want to find a job where I only have to work at one place and can pay all my bills. If that really to much to ask? No more of this Temp agency crap. Because it's the agency that's giving me the card, but my current location that's giving me all the shit. And it's driving me nuts.

Meta Thoughts - LOTR:TT

Watching LOTR:TT, and I occurs to me, that (Movie) Helm's Deep was not designed all that well. I mean, you're backed into a canyon, with a funnel approach. Why the hell to you not have posts on the walls to shoot people riding up to the wall face? Catapults are known technologies, they're used in Minas Tirith. Stick some of those behind your wall and lob fire bombs on approaching armies!

Speaking of the wall, make it higher! It's the OUTER WALL!! That should be at least level with the fricken main keep! And for god's sake, get rid of the hole. If you're going to have an opening that can destroy the entire base, do a better job of hiding it. Otherwise, it's the Death Star all over again.

And put a damn backside to that wall. I mean, for god's sake, all it takes is one miss-step and some pore Rohirrim is going to be pancaked on the ground!

This moment of Meta brother to you by me wanting to see the scene where Éomer first appears, and then just never turning off the movie.



EDIT: Also, Wilhelm Scream appearance!!! By a falling elf no less! *gigglesnort*

Does anyone know of a site where you can search for LOTR fanfic? There is one story that I remember and I have no idea where it is. I can't remember title or author. I think it was on ff.net

Help me f-list! This is driving me nuts!

New Year Resolutions: (AKA those things I think will happen but never do...)

1) Be more active fic wise...
I have a lot of writing to do to recover from loosing my fic folder earlier this year, but I have lots of ideas that I never wrote down that are begging to get out. And this year, come hell or high water, I'm doing it.

2) Pay off most of my bills...
There is a definite hope for a new, better paying job in the next few weeks, and I plan on buckling down and plotting out a payment plan that will let me pay off the smaller credit cards and hopefully more off the littler student loans. (Which reminds me, I need to finish that chart that has payment dates and amounts on it so I have excuse for missing things.)

3) Exercise more...
There is a gym in town that is reasonably priced, and I do have a Wii fit, so one way or the other, I plan on getting into better shape. Not that I'm out of shape at the moment, but I want to be able to play with kids for more than 2 minutes with out getting tired.

4) Get out more...
I want to DO things this year. Take Yoga lessons, go to a pottery class, meet people and hang out and generally be somewhere other than my house every day after 4pm. Not that I don't love my family, but I want to do things other than see them all day long. (Sadly, this one is kind of dependent on the new job. I barely have money to pay the bills at the moment, but as soon as I do... Yoga is top of the list!)

Most of these should be easy to pull off. The kicker is just starting them. Wish me luck!

I live!

Things have been.... stressful in my family as of late. We lost my Grandmother at the end of October to old age/Alzheimer's, and then 5 weeks later, my Uncle lost his fight with lung cancer.

I just, haven't really been in a chatty, fic writing mood. I'm hoping the job interview on Monday goes well, so that I can get the hell out of my shithole of a job and tell the office that I've been half-timing in that I have somewhere full and don't need them any more. Because as nice as my new boss is, I can only take 14hr days for so long.

Things that are new:

I have a new car! A Jeep Compass, 2007. Red, sun roof, 6 cd changer. I like, though it's been odd adjusting from my Grand Cherokee. (Yes, they are both Jeeps. I live in New England. SUV's and trucks are a requirement. None of this car crap. We get snow out the wazoo, I need something that can clear a snow bank without a plow.)

Have a 3rd job, as mentioned above. Another lawyer, who is super nice, and wants me full time, but can't do insurance or take taxes out of my pay. I'm not paying in at the end of the year with no insurance. Hence, Job interview on Monday. It's another temp agency, but this one should get me temp to hire with an actual hire, rather than cutting my hours, as current job has done.

Thank god for other part-time, as I can actually pay the bills. Kinda. Some are a day or two late as I wait for pay-day, but they get paid.

***

Anyone doing anything good for New Years? I think, after we finish moving the aunt into her new house, we're just going to sit on her couch and watch the ball drop. I'm all for sleeping there and then hanging out on Tuesday, but we'll see.

Hope to get the fic juices going. I have a Bond/Sherlock that looks promising, I just need to flesh out a few things. It's been hard to find the drive since I lost all my old fic. 10+ years of stories gone. I just kinda gave up after that. Maybe Bond/Lock will get it going again.

Dear New Boss:

If you're not going to be at work, please to be letting me know, so I don't sit in your drive way (again) for 40 minutes freezing my ass off while you never get back to me.

Also, as this is the second time you have left me cooling my heels (read freezing my tits off), I'm looking for other part time afternoon jobs to pay for my new car with.

Since you know, your job was supposed to do that, which is kinda hard, as I'm not WORKING!

Also, thank you ever so much for never getting back to me at all today, and for not telling if I'm working tomorrow, or if you're just going to keep ignoring me.

(TL:DR)

Sent message to part time boss, who never responded ONCE to the THREE different texts I sent to them about working today. AS this job is paying for my new vehicle, you can see why this is a problem.

I'm getting really tired of setting up for something good, only to have it slap me in the face.

I just....

Went for a job interview today. And while YAY! I got the job, it wasn't what I though it was. I had though that it would be full time in a law office. And while it is in a law office, it's part time, three days a week, on top of my regular job. Which , I still have to keep, dammnit! I was so looking forward to walking into work tomorrow and telling them to suck it.

This is the place that has promised to hire me on full time several times for the last two years. Every time, it fell through. Or something came up. Or they just never got back to me. Or the fact that I passed on a change in departments two years ago meant that after I was forced into a change a year ago I was refused a chance to be hired due to the original refusal.

I just.... really wanted this to work, so that I could tell my job that I don't need their bullshit and broken promises. I want to work somewhere I actually want to go in, not somewhere where the though of work makes me ill.

If you look at the definition of crap luck, then guess who'll have a picture right there.

What a horrible week. Between my Grandmother passing last Thursday (I'm fine. No, really. This was more of a mercy passing than anything else. She had Alzheimer's, and had a stroke back in April. Trust me, what she was doing wasn't living. And it was super quick. The nursing home said it looked like a massive heart-attack and she was gone in a manner of minutes.) and then essentially being told "Sorry for your loss, you get no bereavement, enjoy your unpaid time off", by my job.... Yeah.

Let me tell you, having to go in for overtime on Saturday just to get paid for a full week? Blows chunks. Took Friday off though. I was going to work, if only for the distraction, but Mom wanted me home to help clean and get things ready. And then just sat on the couch with her once she got most of the Funeral things planned, and just hung out with her. I would have loved to be with her more this week, but of course, this is the one week of the year where we have 4 10hr days and then Friday off.

So me having to work today wasn't overtime, but again "Get as close to 40 as I can."

And of top of that, the ass-hat that I was paired with for counts today... So I was farmed off to another department by my supervisor in a converted effort for me to get as many hours as I could. Which meant that I ended up helping the drivers inventory their trucks. And by that, I mean that I got to sit there and wait for him to tell me what a part was and to divide everything up because I had no idea what anything was, since you know, I was in a completely different area. I mean, I work with the coin side of my job. This is bar-guns (those things at bars and restaurants that waitstaff use to get soda and such. And vending machines.)

I thought me manager was going to pop something when he came over at 3 (I was leaving in like a half hour), and found me counting and the rest of the guys just standing around smoking. I though he was going to pop something. That was it though. I just grabbed my stuff and left early. I mean, I was taking time out of my day to help you, and you just stand around and let me do all the work?

Please, please, let me get a callback somewhere soon. Or I'm liable to just quit and then get into fist-fights with my debtors.
