It was a sleepy day. I pretty much slept from 7am until 7pm with a few breaks to let dogs out and check my email (both work and personal)

Some crazy stuff happened at work last night. I will have to talk about it more in another post but I want to see what some of the fall out was before I do.

I just finished my requisite Otakon phonecall for the night. So far I have averaged a phone call per night for the week relating to Otakon. I imagine that this will likely be the norm for a while.

I want a nap...

There is a driver who has been calling for the last 3 hours. He's called 10 times. I want to smack him. They know I do not work anytime between 7 and 10 and that I am only on third shift. In addtion, I work Sunday through Thursday. So this is my day off. I am highly annoyed. Since he woke me up, I am about this close to telling him to screw off. But he is probably not thinking and that pisses me off more.

Where does the time go? Really I wonder.

Let's see. End of month came and went with more than it usual craziness. We hit record numbers this month. My department accounted for 3777 repos and we are just one division. The total for the whole company was 9685 repos. That is a heck of a lot of cars picked up. It was a record-breaking month. The reward, we can wear jeans on Friday and they are buying Pizza for the office tomorrow. I laughed. I get to wear what I want all the time (I haven't looked at my work shirts in 6 months) and I can have Pizza when I want it which is about once every 6 months and I got my fill at Otakon.

Moving on, since noone wants to hear me talk about my work unless it is the fun part - like guys running out in their skivvies chasing after thier car at 3am, to Otakon Stuffage.

I am the Section Chief of Human Resources this year. I am working on my budget but I still need to get in touch with a few people. The budget is smaller this year than last so I am having fun with that. But it is coming together. I still need to talk with Hotels, Gofers, and Staf support. I know what Spec Ops needs and I still need to find a new head of that. The search for a Chief of Staff is going well. Hopefully there will be an announcement soon. There is so much stuff to do and so little time to implement it. I wish I could go to the meeting on the 25th but that is not happening.

Writing front. Well I am writing. But it is not on my fanfics. I know bad, Lark! But with everything going on with Work and Otakon I haven't had the inclination like I should. I am probably going to buckle down for NaNoWriMo and do something like "Finsh a story, Yo!" with that month.

Right now I am working on telling some Sims2 style stories. Let me tell you that I have never yelled at my laptop like I have lately. I am doing an Asylum challenge with [livejournal.com profile] lennoxmacbeth as the star. I like to torture my friends. But this shouldn't be news for you all. ^_^ Here is the linky -- don't kill me because of the crappy picture taking. Although for those of you who play, i dare you to play Spot the Cameraman Mode pictures. They are there. Just not many of them since they cause Blue Screens of Death when I use them too much. Hence part of the screaming. *Begs Mac for an Advertising like banner for the story* You know my photoshop skills suck the galactic muffin.

I still need to mail out the prizes for the Max Challenge contest. But Money is killing me right now. Thank you vet bills.

Speaking of the pets. Rikku is very cuddly needy. She jumps up on my lap while I am working and cuddle sleeps. It is very cute. Shika wants to, but his hip is still bugging him I don't think the weather helps. He is just so happy to be alive that he will bound around the house while being gimpy. I am slowly starting to harden myself to the fact that it is very likely that Shikamaru will not live for very long. I am going to do my best to keep him going and the walks and playing fetch help some. But I think that his hip isn't going to improve and there will be a time where his quality of life is going to deteriorate to the point where it isn't a joy for him anymore. That is the day I am dreading. Until then, he still loves to play fetch and tug the disemboweled remains of squeaky toys with Rikku. He loves her and is currently cuddled against her sleeping. The cats are the cats. Affectionate, easy going, although Rin has taken to fighting with Rikku over who can sit on my lap. He claims he had it first. And he is right since he is the oldest pet in the house.

But that is generally what is going on with me. Today I am going out shopping with my mom at the Asian food store and Farmer's Market. Then later I am heading over to Josh's for Battlestar Friday. But for right now, Coffee!!!! and Dinner.

I really like the people I work with at both my real job and Otakon. My being sick this last week has solidified this. I have gotten such a huge amount of support from both my drivers, management and other CSRs at work. And the people I deal with at Otakon have been also very supportive. It is nice.

I've been slowly going through my emails and trying to clean them up. I had over 200 story alerts that I have managed to whittle down to 92 - mostly by eliminating the duplicates. I need to go through my Otakon emails - there are over 800 and categorize them by year and see if I even need to keep them. It will be nice to get that cleaned up let me tell you.

I am hoping to be able to get more of my webpage updated this week. But I think my next focus needs to be my house. I didn't keep up with it this week and it shows. I don't want to get too messy -even though that is what I tend to default to. I also need to go shopping. Shikamaru eats 8 cups of food a day so I go through dog food really quickly. I also need milk and more fruits and veggies.

I am now working third shift, and have been for the past two and a half weeks. It's been interesting and the really nice thing is that for the moment I am working out of my home. YAY!

Well I am about to head off for bed. But I am amused as I go. I subbed today and that was an interesting experience. I haven't had a chance to work on my page with school and other things. Although I plan on it.

I am heading to Acen next week so don't expect to see many updates until after I get back.
