Decisions... Decisions...

For a few days now, I've been debating on using my (oooh one whole day) sick time either tomorrow or Tuesday. Not that I've been sick or anything. I'm just sick of this job and (nearly) everyone on it. I kinda knew October was going to be like this, cause it was the first month where I didn't have some kind of day off.

During the late spring and summer I took off for Animazement and Otakon, but I knew I wouldn't be hitting any cons after that until Usa. In September I had off for Labor Day and I'll have off (1 day) for Thanksgiving. But I'll be off the Monday and Tuesday before the holiday. But I haven't decided if I was going to actually take that day yet. I mean I have that scheduled off, but I may not take it. I have to see what kind of mood I'm in by the end of Usa.

But I need to pick which day I want to take off, either tomorrow or Tuesday. But when I think about it, I can't... Or should I say, I shouldn't take Tuesday off, cause that's the day those bozos from JACHO are going to be here and I do have a doctor's appointment the day after that, which I will be leaving early for. So it's going to have to be either Friday or nothing...

Knowing how I am with this damn work ethic of mine, I'll more then likely not take any day off and come in tomorrow disgusted. They're supposedly having some "pot-luck" Halloween type party tomorrow, but I'm not feeling it.

However, this entire month I have worked straight through. I've never done something like that before. Even when I was in school, I'd either skip a day or something. No one should have to work like this. I mean for goodness sakes, I don't have Dec. 26th or Jan. 2nd off (But I'm sure the fabulous Mark has those days off) that simply isn't fair.

I'm office staff, not medical/ "field" staff. I don't have any interaction with patients, save for looking at their charts or having to deal with them when they call, so why should I have to come in on "Observed" holidays? And even though, both those days are "federal observed holidays", I'm sure I won't be getting paid time and a half like I really should be.

Oh healthcare (and the fabulous one) can suck it! When I'm done at this job, I swear the next job I get will be something where I do something creative and don't have to work with a group of bitey, whiney, gossipy, backing-stabbing, self-righteous women. And I'll never again work in healthcare! This is just an exercise in pointlessness and I know next time to choose something better suited to me instead of the first thing that comes along.

Woo-hoo: I wanna take some time off and I think tomorrow is going to be the ticket.

I hate to digress, but what comes in the Snake Eater DVD box thing?

Oh don't worry about the digression, it's cool.

The DVD comes with 4 disk, The Extreme, The Variation, The Intermission, and The Lovers (Most of these disks are tutorials on how to play the game, but they're really cool to see).

The Extreme disk (which I didn't watch too much of until now) has the entire game as played by someone from Konami and it's basically a huge tutorial on how to finish the game with what looks like the least amount of equipment, weapons, damage or time. Plus all the boss fights are non-lethal take downs. From what I'm seeing, they just took The Pain down, non-lethally in less then two minutes. The playing is a little too reckless for my taste, but it's really cool to see someone just breeze through this game and not kill anyone in the process.

The Variation has weapon and equipment training tutorials, area strategy tutorial, and the Boss battle tutorial.

The Intermission has a ton of stuff, all of which I haven't watched yet either. Plus it has a little game on it called Find Out the Snake, it's like Where's Waldo, but with Naked Snake.

And The Lovers has the demo theater stuff on it.

The pack also comes with a book (in all Japanese and has no pictures) called MGS3 Snake Eater Shedding and it also has the Naked Snake Kubrick figure. So that's what the DVD has. It's really good and worth what I paid for it.

I think I just figured out what my birthday money is going to.

o_O What job doesn't have those people? What place at all doesn't have those kinds of people. Look at the crap I'm in on LJ. My job is full of really nice people, not to mention a co-worker likes me. I dun date co-workers though. BIG no-no. The work I do is painstaking as hell though.. Like cutting fabric and putting away the remains... It's always busy because of sales, so I can't really talk to anyone unless I need help.

-_-; There's a severe nurse shortage in where I live. In fact, it's nearly impossible to get access to healthcare because the hospitals are too busy suing the hell out of poor people who can't pay the bills. But I can see why you wouldn't work there.

Pot-lucks are evil.

Yeah you're right all jobs have people like that, it just seems like where I work they have them plus a little bit extra just to make me go truly nuts.

I'm glad your job is going good. I know it must be really hard work, but it's only mega busy now because of the holidays and people getting ready for Halloween. It will probably so up again after the holidays and then pick up again in the late spring when people are trying to have their dresses made for prom season.

I still haven't decided if I'm going to work tomorrow. I have an errand I have to run after work, but I still may take the day off... I don't know yet. I could really use a day away from that place.

And pot-lucks are evil. I don't know why people insist on having them?

o_O I think it's to get all the cat-co-workers tamed. You know the real kitty co-workers. The one that hisses at you when you try to pet them, and scratch you if you befriend them. Rowr.. *cat-scratches*

@_@; Tell me about it. We were swamped the past month, and a new sale is starting. Because they happen constantly, it's gonna be hell all year. ;_; But you know what? I kicked so many damn doors, and I'm not gonna let some dumb sales, retarded customers or that Hooker-and-John Ryan and whore Heaven take that from me by starting drama over something dumb. (I tried to call you, btw.) I do the easy job. Cutting the fabric! ^^

Don't let the co-workers get to you. My co-workers are already trying to drag me into a nightclub and I just got hired..o_O I can't be THAT pitiful..am I?

I'm trying not to let jinkaku get to me. But I can't help the fact that I want to fight back, and I don't like losing. Blame the Taurean attributes I have; It's very hard for me to give up. You have to make me dead exhausted to throw the towel. Though I'm physically a helpless imp, I can put up a pretty damn good fight on, and offline.

(And so you won't be tangled in this by accident because of me, I suggest deleting chocochick from your friends list. She supports them in ridding the internet of me. You're like a mommy to me.)

Sadly, I still care. -_- Damn my stupid-kindness. I'm always nice and caring to the wrong people. ;_;
