Dept. of In Haste

Moar Stuff

1. I was unfriended the morning after I made my last post; a brief email conversation with the person in question made it appear as if my comments about the Puppies had done it, although I could be wrong. Given that this was when the Puppies and their friends were licking their wounds ... it doesn't surprise me. The person was reasonably polite in the brief email exchange; they said they were tired of reading comments about people they knew but that the commenters didn't. I understand the emotion. However, having friends myself who I am aware have been, not to put too fine a point on it, dead wrong about things, and who probably deserve to be called on those things, the argument "You don't know them like I do" has less strength than this person thought it did.  tl;dr: it was the person's loss, not mine. 

2. I finally got my Green Card renewal application done online, and paid online. That's not the end of it, of course; I still have to have a new picture taken, and the pics have to meet the rather arcane measurements required by the immigration section of the Department of Homeland Security, and I still have to get an appointment to go in and get my biometrics done (biometrics, in this case, meaning nothing more elaborate than my fingerprints, or thumbprint.) But at least the process is underway. Go, me. 

3. My current boss's final day is tomorrow. They're having a little get together for him down at the George Orwell Memorial Building tomorrow afternoon. I may have enough done to go down there, but if I don't get down there, that's OK; he's trying to set something up for his staff outside, possibly two weeks down the line. And he wants to invite my previous fantastic uber-boss; that would be fantastic. 

4. Work today sucked so very much that at one point I was in tears. I have recovered from that point. And I've been able to actually undertake a post for the first time - again - in days, and I'm listening to jazz. These things go a long way toward helping me forget Teh Suck. 

Right now, however, I'm dead tired, so I'm going to toddle off to bed, without telling you any number of things I'd undoubtedly meant to tell you but which I've forgotten. There were the Totally Unexpected Cosplayers wandering down a totally non-cosplay-type neighborhood street the other day, for example ... ah, but my bed is calling to me. All my love, my dears, and I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.

I hope you have a good sleep.

Random cosplayers are always good:)

Random cosplayers are indeed, always good; one of them was arrayed in brightest pink, with many, many crinolines under her skirt, and she looked just like cotton candy. Cotton candy with ankle boots and a hat, and white pig-tailed hair (or as the Japanese call them, "twin tails")

Sleep was reasonable, and now I'm trying to shake it off and do my job. Wish me luck!

Well, I'm glad the visa thing is (nearly) done; that's something. I hope work isn't so bad - and, well, I suppose at least it's Friday (if weekends apply here)? :-/

It's sad to lose an flister, but... well, what can one say about people once they deliberately try to game the system of an important award? Points of view and however nice they may be to their families or whatever, that's definitely a step way over the line & maybe you've enough stuff going on to need someone who thinks that's reasonable behaviour on your flist. ♥

It is indeed. I remember the craziness I went through 10 years ago, and I don't want that to happen this time.

And you're right; this former f'lister may indeed see the times when some of the Pups are really stand-up, lovely, generous people. It doesn't eliminate or negate the loathsome things they've done.

*hugs* You rest up and take care! Good luck with everything ♥

Thanks. I'm just going to take every day one at a time, and I imagine that will help.

Hope you got some rest, honey...sounds like it was a doozy of a day! And a couple more to come...yikes.

I survived the day, and got a bunch of things done in the time between then and now, so things aren't too bad.

*hugs back*
