It has betrayed me. It had turned into something in the last 10 years that is completely other from what it was in the nearly 20 before that. Before, I was strong for a woman, barely sick, capable of climbing trees and out-fighting a boy.
Now it takes a week or more to recover from a small stomach virus. My arthitis rides me like Hell's own bitch. Food is barely tolerated, and sometimes when it is it attacks my pouch with a vegence I can't explain.
I cannot leave now... I still have obligations laid on me. But, I swear, some days...

But then, considering how sick I've been over the last month, it wouldn't surprise me if my whole damn head turns that way.
And no, I won't color it. Puh-leeze. First off, I'd never find anything to match my color. Secondly, I shudder to think how many bottles of dye it would take to color my whole head.

We last took a picture like this 3 years ago, when Caleb was brand new, so it's nice to have an update.

Yes, I named her Sephiroth. Ya'll know my obsessions. ;-)
As soon as she feels comfortable enough with her surroundings to not crouch on the floor when I come in (she's very people shy), I'll take a couple of pictures.
Goldeneye, however, is being an incredibly butt about the whole thing, and is about to spend the damn day in the bathroom. :-p

Yesterday was back pain, shoulder pain, lots of pain. I've been told not to take much Advil because it could tear up my stomach/pouch, and I'd rather not have problems in that department. But I'm beginning to think I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to dealing with this. I'm either going to be in pain, or I'm going to have an upset stomach/pouch.

Even if you don't like Bush or Kerry, there's a good handful of third party candidates out there. Hell, write in your mother's name, or your brother's name, or anyone you know who's over 35 and born in America who can do their own math and think independently on occasion.
Then don't forgot all the little local elections. All of them. There's a ton of them, believe me, don't skip them. I know I have a senator, a representative, a state senator, a state respresentative, a sheriff, and a school board to re-elect.
Do feel free to throw all the bums out. My local sheriff, who likes to ignore most of the gang problem? He's gone. New senator? You'll excuse me if I don't vote for the local Republican moron who says gays and single parents shouldn't be teachers. School board? While I don't have kids, my siblings' kids will be going to school around here, and they're the ones who will be taking care of my as I get old.
You're damn right I pay attention. If you don't, don't come back and whine, I'll just smack you into the next millenium.

One thing that caught me in here is a sentence saying, "Experts say the average deaf child isn't introduced to English until age 6, upon entering school."
So these kids don't read? They don't have parents willing to sit down and sign out a book to them, like I sit down and read a book to Raven?

It's not really because of work, it's been quiet today and it'll be mostly silent tomorrow, since the lawyers are leaving today for a retreat and a lot of secretaries will take most of tomorrow off for the State Fair.
It's not the writing... I'm cruising along (23,621 words!), getting ready for the final showdown.
It's because I started a new game this morning, and I want to go back to it. Final Fantasy IV. I loved the 20 minutes or so I got to mess with it this morning, and I wanna go spend a few more hours on it.
I just know I'm not going to have a lot of time this weekend to mess with it, or even start on Demon Stone. I've got too much other stuff to do.
I've somehow got almost 6 days of leave. Don't ask me where they came from, I was 3 days in the hole back in May. I may have to use one in the not too distant future...

Over 17,000 words, if I'm remembering the count from earlier today. It's been slow since this weekend, mostly because of work rage issues. But I got back into it today, and only stopped because I needed to think more carefully about how to craft an important scene. Two things needs to happen, then a big thing, then all hell breaks lose and doesn't let up, if I've got this right.
Meanwhile, I have a 12-track soundtrack for this thing. ;-) Music helps me write. Hell, it was the lyrics to "Whisper" that started this thing in the first place. It's not finished, I don't think... I'll have to see what grabs me as I'm writing.

Chaotic Good characters are independent types with a strong belief in the value of goodness. They have little use for governments and other forces of order, and will generally do their own things, without heed to such groups.
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.
Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.
Solonor Thelandria is the Chaotic Good elven god of archery and the hunt. He is also known as the Keen Eye, the Great Archer, and the Forest Hunter. His followers respect nature, and only hunt when needed, but are quick to defend the forest from intruders. Their favorite weapon is the bow, and they tend to be extremely talented with it. Solonor Thelandria's symbol is an arrow with green fletchings.

Need to find gloves and bracelets for the costume.
Dad says we need to go to Lowe's to look at options for making the shoulder armor.
Local festival Saturday, those can be fun to go wander around in. Might do it in the jeans/boots/bodysuit combo I'm using for the costume.
Also must figure a way to strap my chest down without it being too obvious. Duct tape would work, but it might remove them when I take it off. ;-)

Say you're here and it's all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one's here and I fall into myself
This truth drives me into madness
I know I can stop the pain if I will it all away
If I will it all away
Don't turn away
Don't give in to the pain
Don't try to hide
Though they're screaming your name
Don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
Don't turn out the light
Never sleep, never die
I'm frightened by what I see
But somehow I know that there's much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be blinded by tears
I can stop the pain if I will it all away
If I will it all away
Fallen angels at my feet
Whispered voices at my ear
Death before my eyes
Lying next to me I fear
She beckons me shall I give in
Upon my end shall I begin
Forsaking all I've fallen for I rise to meet the end
Dawn, you asked which was my favorite song? This one. Sephi and Cloud and Jenova are warring in my head to this. I'm writing. :-)

Sorry for the delay... with the typhoon-like weather, I've been too busy with other stuff to put this DragonCon report up. :-p
It's been a long time since I've woken up and been out the door before dawn. Seeing Orion hanging over my head made me smile... he's always keeping an eye on me. I drove and Janice slept until Augusta, when we got breakfast. Those Banana/Macadamia nut pancakes at IHOP are AWESOME!! Couple more hours on the road, then downtown Atlanta.
I could easily learn to hate downtown Atlanta.
Finally found someplace to park where we could still see the Hyatte/Mariott where the convention was taking place. Figured out the automatic ticket-giving system wasn't taking money, so I used my debit card. Gave the bum who helped us out with the machine a $5 for his trouble and his rap/poem.
We go to register. By the end of registration, we're convinced we need to do the whole thing next year. We head up to the vendors. First booth I find is for Renderosity, a company that does figures for a fee. They have a drawing for free software. Who can turn down free software?
I go wandering around while Janice goes in search of her current favorite author. I drool over the tons of anime, anime soundtracks, game soundtracks, swords, clothing, etc. I also spend $10 on a Bahumut or Yojimbo T-Shirt (wish I could find pics, sorry) that's 3 sizes too big, but manage to restrain myself. More wandering around. Spend $4 on a poster of Sephiroth from FF VII: Advent's Children. I need it for my Halloween costume, I tell myself.
Janice finds me. "Ray Park is here." Me: "WHERE?!?!?!" We go downstairs. Crazy line, but we meet:
Craig, the guy who played Haldir Very nice guy.
Sala, the guy who played a few orcs and Sauron Very very funny guy. He took one of Craig's promo pics and doodled on it.
The kid who played young Boba Fett My, has he grown up.
Ray Park, God among men. Turns me into a blithering fangirl. Janice is much embarassed.
Wander around some more, pick up about half a dozen business cards and such. Go sit in on what's supposed to be a thing about Star Wars Episode III, but is mostly about everything but. We leave early to get some lunch. Alternately roll our eyes and shake our head at what some are (not) wearing in public. But there are some really good ones, including a dead-on Rikku from FF X-2 that causes second bout of public embarassment for poor Janice (I was a little loud in trying to greet the girl).
I go to meet Jacqueline Carey (OOOH! Imriel books soon!), but it's a panel of talking heads and I don't get to talk to her. Janice tried to get in on a Craig thing, but it was too crowded and they wouldn't let her in. We then try to go watch Tom Savini do a thing about FX in the movies, but that's also crowded with rude people who stand in front of us sitting people.
So we go back to the vendors. I spend $10 on a print by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law called Dragon Knot, and she is sweet enough to sign it. :-) I will get a frame for this and put it above my creating table in my home office, next to the Sephiroth poster that's already hung.
I don't win the software. *sniff* We go home. I quickly regret not having Advil, as my arthritis reminds me that standing and walking for 8 hours is NOT a good thing.
But it was worth it. See you there next year!

A: I don't really feel too good about asking anyone to vote at this time because I basically don't have faith in either one of the two parties. I would like it better if we had a woman president, seven of them, instead of one. ... American Indian, Mexican, Irish, African-American. We need seven women to really represent the United States more from an integrity perspective.
I love this man. ;-)
Needless to say, I'll be heading to Wal-Mart after work for stuff: kitty litter, extra cat food, batteries, maybe even a jug or two of water. Maybe powdered tea. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

The Teacher answered:
"There is no sin.
It is you who make sin exist,
when you act according to the habits
of your corrupted nature;
this is where sin lies."

Part of the old school, you like both historical sites and crazy

beating each other about the head and torso. Sometimes it works and sometimes
it doesn't, and you get very schizophrenic as a result. But your heart
is in the right place, and sometimes also in New York.

What Color is Your Brain?
brought to you by Quizilla
At work or in school: I work best by myself. I like to focus on my ideas until my desire for understanding is satisfied. I am easily bored if the subject holds no interest to me. Sometimes, it is hard for me to set priorities because so many things are of interest.
With friends: I may seem reserved. Although my thoughts and feelings run deep, I am uneasy with frequent displays of emotion. I enjoy people who are interesting and of high integrity.
With family: I am probably seen as a loner because I like a lot of private time to think. Sometimes, I find family activities boring and have difficulty following family rules that don't make sense to me. I show love by spending time with my family and sharing ideas and interests.

This is what it feels like right now, trying to write some stuff. It sucks ass. It took me 20 minutes to compose an email to someone.
I call ADT to cancel my account with them, since I've found a local place that is $20 cheaper a month. The first person transfers me to a second one, who starts reading off of her cue card.

This morning, I popped in FF VIII and was like, "Ah..." Old friends, re-met. Poor Quistis, irrational Seifer, moody Squall. People I fought with and for and against, when I had this on my PC.
You have to care about these characters. The story leaves you no other choice. That's what seems to set the Final Fantasy franchise out above the others.
And it's the problem I'm having with Kingdom Hearts... I just don't care enough about Sora to want to help him find his friends. I play it sometimes for an hour or so, just to see who I see next (so far: Wakka, Tidus (altho I didn't recognize him), Selphie, Squall, Yuffie, and Aeris), but that's about it. Also, the fighting controls are TEH SHITS, and the camera is TEH MASSIVE SHITS. Incredibly frustrating.

Then he turned around and killed me.
We did this as often as he could get away from some of his other duties and join myself, Dr. Cockrell, and Todd on our private little Quake server. He said it was great for stress relief.
Rupert certainly wasn't like most of the rest of the professors at Newberry College. He chain smoked, two or more packs a day. He cussed. He never bothered to try to keep his stringy grey hair neat. He married a woman (a former student!) nearly 30 years his junior and had a son 20 years younger than his other children.
But he was a great teacher. I wanted to be in his speech class so bad, I cooked up the colitis excuse so I could drop out of the speech class I had been slated for and took his over the summer instead. He got great things out of the students when he directed plays.
Newberry just won't be the same without him.
And, by the way, Rupert, I'm still winning the frag-fest. Send me your IP address when I get up there, and we'll go another round. Or two. Or three...

I get a bill from ADT for a service call last week. "Hell no, I already paid for this, I'm not paying twice!" says I. So I call them. Beep through their phone system until I get a person on the line. "Ignore the charge, the technician must not have filed it yet." says she.
Then I ask, "So when does my contract expire?"
"Let me check... July 18th, 2004."
(looks at the calender) "You mean yesterday?"
"Yes, July 18th."
"So I'm not under contract now?"
"No, now you're month to month."
"So when were you planning on telling me?"
After some hemming and hawing, she finally says, "We don't tell you when you go month to month."
Needless to say, tomorrow I will be talking to my boss about the local folks he and his wife use at their home.

3) Went to Goodwill, dropped off clothes that no longer fit (goodbye, size 4) and bought ones that did (hello, size 6)
4) Came back home
5) Did 2 loads of laundry
6) FINALLY BRED A DAMN GOLD CHOCOBO in FF VII
7) Am now leveling up Cloud & Co. to 70ish before heading to Sephiroth and the One Winged Angel showdown.
I've also been downloaded a ton of cool new music, reading (Drizzt is

Instead I am in front of the computer, with a bowl of Mayfield's Moose Tracks ice cream (I pity you who don't have Mayfields ice cream in your freezers) and a more empty than not bottle of Jim Beam Kentucky Straight Burbon Whiskey.
Should be fun. :-p
Your score as a human being is 77.3.
Middle of the road, eh? Does that mean you're yellow? Yellow as a salamander frying on blacktop? Yellow as a urinal cake? Yellow as a delicious marshmallow Peep? Mmmm. Peep. Sometimes I think if it weren't for Just Born candy, I would just expel my life force and expire. Hot Tamales. Mike and Ikes.
But I digress.
Nicely done. You are robustly average, and I approve of it.
20 Questions to a better personality
You are an SECF--Sober Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a hippie. You are passionate about your causes and steadfast in your commitments. Once you've made up your mind, no one can convince you otherwise. Your politics are left-leaning, and your lifestyle choices decidedly temperate and chaste.
You do tremendous work when focused, but usually you operate somewhat distracted. You blow hot and cold, and while you normally endeavor on the side of goodness and truth, you have a massive mean streak which is not to be taken lightly. You don't get mad, you get even.
Please don't get even with this web site.
Whoa, that last one is pretty dead on

4) Out of Time (Denzel Washington rules, no matter what he's in)
5) DS9 season 1 disc 4
6) Ghost in the Shell (the sequal should be hitting American shores at some point; I fully expect Columbia NOT to get it)

8) DS9 season 1 disc 5
9) Justice League (I keep hearing good things about this cartoon)
10) The Emporer and the Assassin (Chinese movie)

I'm back in FF VII. Just met Cait Sith and ended up in Corel Prison. I spent nearly an hour running around getting Yuffie before we hit Junon. I was determined to get her before we moved on, no matter what level I ended up at. Yuffie does some kick ass damage out of the box, more than Tifa or even Barrett. Plus, I renamed her after my neice Raven, so I have to use her. ;-) Vincent will definitely be renamed Izzy (for the 3 people who read this who'll get it).

Watched the first of the Deep Space Nine discs. I'd forgotten how much Avery Brooks kicked ass as Commander Sisko. Can't wait for more to come in.

It's now 11:50 with them still here, and her lunch break is damn sure going to interfere with mine, considering that when they go out, they can't keep it to an hour.

|How to make a Jennifer|
3 parts success
3 parts self-sufficiency
1 part joy
Combine in a tall glass half filled with crushed ice. Add a little sadness if desired!
All right now, these damn things need to stop reading my mind...
|How to make a JLSigman|
5 parts intelligence
1 part crazyiness
Stir together in a glass tumbler with a salted rim. Serve with a slice of lovability and a pinch of salt. Yum!
I have to laugh at the last one... 3 parts what? I'm sure others can fill that in in many different ways.

And I'm on disc 3 of FF VII, with FF Tactics, FF VIII, and Xenosaga waiting in the wings.
And I'm one of the leaders of my clan on Aardwolf, which means I do have to log in there at least daily to keep up with things.
And I need to go to work. And sleep.
I think I need at least 5 more hours in the day. :-p Or I need to hit the lottery.
Dawn, when I get paid next week, I'll finally get that CD out to you I've been meaning to. Really. :-p

I'm just at the beginning of disc 2, and my main thought is, "WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE?!?!?"
Jenova isn't an Ancient, but an alien? So Sephiroth is maybe half-Ancient half-Jenova? And WTF is up with Cloud? "You are..... a puppet." A puppet for whom? I'm so confused...
And I hope my snowboarding time/score doesn't have too much of an effect on the game. Man, I brought teh suck to that. ;-)

Goddess of Hate: Hey, Greeks, go kick some ass!
Greeks: You got it!
Rest of the Gods: *pout*
Zeus: *gets popcorn and settles in to watch*
Agememnon: *kills a lot of Trojans*
Zeus: OK, Isis, tell Hector to hang back until Agememnon gets hit. Then he should
come up and fight and I'll let him drive the Greeks all the way back to their ships.
Hector: OK *riles up Trojans*
Koon: *stabs Agememnon*
Agememnon: OUCH! *kills Koon* OK, that's it, I'm outta here
Hector: Alrighty, then, let's kick some Greek ass!
Trojans: You got it!
Hector: *kills a lot of Greeks*
Odysseus: Come on, stand your ground!
Diomedes: We'll try, but Zeus hates us today
Zeus: *slurps a soda*
Diomedes: *dents Hector's helmet*
Hector: Ouch! *runs off in chariot*
Diomedes: Cowardly dog!
Paris: *shoots Diomedes in the foot*
Diomedes: Damn elf!
Odysseus: *pulls out arrow*
Diomedes: *heads for the ships*
Odysseus: Damn. If I run I'm a coward, if I stand I'm dead. Guess I'll stand.
Sokos: *stabs Odysseus*
Odysseus: OUCH! *kills Sokos* Help!
Ajax: Me too!
Paris: *shoots Machaon*

Achilles: Hmm, looks like the Greeks are getting their asses kicked... Patroclus!
Achilles: Go find out who Nestor just brought in.
Patroclus: Hmmm, it's Machaon
Nestor: What does Achilles care? Hey, why don't you go put on his armor, you're just as good as he is?
Patroclus: Ooh, sounds interesting...
I also sent a freebie trial to my parents. Might as well share the addiction. ;-)

Additional Comments: Jennifer came to us with a wealth of experience plus an undergraduate degree in Math & Computer Science. Her experience and education far exceeds that of her peers and in the position she presently fills. This has resulted in some conflict, petty sniping and some exclusion in social situations from her peers. In all of this she has never complained nor has she let it affect her work or demeanor. She is very well thought of and respected by her upper echelons and most users. Her personality tends to defuse hostile and stressed situations. I’ve had many positive comments about her from attorneys in particular.
Jennifer displays great leadership qualities & I am hopeful we can retain her here for a long time.

I'll be heading in to work today... we'll see how long that lasts. ;-)

The stitches around the stoma dissolve in a couple of weeks.
I'm crazy/bored enough to try to go to work tomorrow.
Sunday, May 23, 2004
I'm doing OK. I'm in some pain, but not a lot of pain, and it's getting easier to move each time I try. I have staples from my belly button on down, stitches around my stoma, some scratches and abrasions on my abdomen, a hellacious bruise on my right arm from a heparin shot, and a smaller bruise on the inside of my right elbow from a blood draw. My stomach muscles are weak (coughing is a joke), and my back muscles are tight from holding myself funny.
But the fistula is gone. Removed. Not coming back. And there's no sign of inflammation anywhere else, so it wasn't Crohn's. I'll pay this price gladly.

Nobody worry 'bout me
Why you wanna give me a fight?
Why don't you just let me be?
Things to do today: (other than the prep stuff, which starts full force at noon) watch "King of Texas" or "Seven Samurai"; watch "Kenshin"; shave (it's the polite thing to do); finish up some laundey (so I have all my scrubs to take to the hospital); update my MP3 player.
And if the prep gets bad, I've got Phenergan, anti-nausea medicine that is gaurenteed to knock you out.
Monday, May 17, 2004
Well, no shit, Sherlock. You taken a peek inside the upper echelons of state government lately? Or the rosters of the biggest law firms (mine included, unfortunately)? How's about who's on top in USC?
I figure this is my last chance to get drunk for a while, might as well take it. ;-)
Oh, and I'm ticked at myself. I didn't even think to check about whether or not old PS1 games could save on PS2 memory cards. The answer is no. I'll have to get one and start FF VII over.
Agememnon: Damn, what am I going to do? Menelaos, wake up!
Menelaos: What, you want someone to go look at the Trojans?
Agememnon: We need a plan. Go wake up the captains and meet us by the sentries.
Agememnon: Hey, Nestor wake up!
Agememnon: We need a plan.
Nestor: OK, go round up Diomedes, Aias, and the rest and let's go plan. Wake up, Diomedes!
Diomedes: What, damnit, I was sleeping.
Nestor: Meeting time
Nestor: OK, let's send a couple of folks out to the Trojan camp to spy. Any volunteers?
Diomedes: Oh, me! I'll go!
Nestor: OK, pick a partner
Diomesdes: I choose you, Odysseus!
Odysseus: Sweet, let's go! Athena, watch over me, OK?
Diomedes: Yeah, me too
Hector: Hmmm, we should send someone to go spy on them. The winner will get a chariot and two good horses from the Greeks after we kill them all.
Dolon: OH! Pick me!
Hector: OK, have fun
Odyssues: Hey, who's that sneaking off? Let's go get him!
Dolon: EEEK! *runs*
Diomedes: *throws spear and pins him to the ground*
Dolon: *cries* Don't kill me!
Odysseus: We won't if you tell us what you were doing out here.
Dolon: Spying! Hector would give me a prize for spying!
Odysseus: Oh really? Where's Hector?
Dolon: Holding a meeting over behind that funeral mound
Odysseus: And how is everyone camped out?
Dolon: Well, these Thracians just showed up ove there... Now, can we go so you can hold me for random?
Diomedes: SUCKER! *kills Dolon*
Odysseus: OK, there's the guys like he said, let's kill them and steal their horses
Nestor: Hey, what am I hearing, a lot of horses?
Odysseus: Lookit what we did!
Agememnon: OK, let's go home
Diomedes: Say what?
Nestor: Look, let's go eat and hold council.
Nestor: Ya know, you should make up with Achilles, we need him around.
Agememnon: You're right. I'll give him 7 girls, tons of gold, one of my own daughters to marry, and 20 girls other than Helen when we sack Troy.
Nestor: Sounds good. OK, Phoinix, Aias, and Odysseus, go talk to him
P, A, O: OK
Achilles: Dudes! Good to see you! Here, eat something.
Odysseus: Thanks. Now, look, Agememnon is gonna give you a bunch of uber-l00t, will you come back a fight?
Phoinix: come on, Achilles, I raised you from a baby boy, you know better than this, come back!
Aias: Oh, the hell with him, let's go
Achilles: Yeah, go tell Agememnon he sucks and I won't come help.
Odysseus: No go.
Diomedes: That jerk! Well, we'll just do without him.
Zeus: All right. I'm going to go down there. Anyone else come down there, I'll kill you. Comprende?
Zeus: *holds up scales* OK, today the Greeks lose. *zaps Greeks*
Diomedes: Hey, come back here!
Zeus: *zaps Greeks*
Nestor: Diomedes, let's go
Diomedes: But they'll call me names!
Nestor: Who cares, let's GO!
Hector: You wimp!
Zeus: *zaps Diomedes*
Diomedes: OK, we go
Hector: Woo-hoo! Let's go get 'em!
Poseidon: Nope, not crossing Zeus, don't even ask.
Agememnon: Come on, you dogs, fight!
Zeus: OK, enough interfering for one day
Agememnon: Teukros, can't you shoot Hector?
Teukros: I'm trying, but he's cheating *kills Gorgythion*
Hector: ARG! *kills Teukros*
Hera: DAMNIT, I can't take anymore! Let's go, Athena
Athena: Sounds like a plan
Zeus: Isis, remind them that that's not a good idea.
Isis: OK. Have you two lost your minds? Hera, this is normal for you, but Athena, you really should know better.
Hera: Um, change of plan, let's go
Zeus: Awww, are you two pouting?
Hera: Shut up, old man
Zeus: Oh, calm down, it won't go on forever
Hector: OK, night time, let's party out here
Trojans: Sounds like a plan!

FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU. You know fucking well I don't pass on shit without VNCing someone. Besides, how the fuck did I get the screenshot of the error on her screen if I wasn't VNC'd into her computer?
I need a new job.
I want to go home. I've got the FF X soundtrack playing. I want to go back to Spira, see Auron, smack around Seymour, and shelter Yuna.
Apollo: Athena, look, let's have a champ from each side fight
Athena: Sounds good to me
Helenos: Hector, I heard the gods talking, challenge one of the Greeks
Hector: OK. Hey, Greeks, pick someone to fight me
Menelaos: Y'all suck, I'll do it
Agememnon: No, you can't! We'll get someone else to do it.
Nestor: Man, y'all suck. If I was younger, I'd go kick his ass.
Agememnon: OK, we'll draw lots.
Aias: Sweet! I win! I get to kick his ass! Hey, Hector, that moper Achilles isn't our only champion!
Hector: Aw, shut up and bring it.
Idaios: Hmmm, this could go on forever, and it's about eating time. All right, boys, break it up, that's enough!
Aias: Make him stop first
Hector: OK, it's chow time, we'll do this again later. Here's my sword.
Aias: Here's my loin-cloth, see ya later.
Nestor: Ya know, we really should do something about all those dead bodies out there.
Greeks: Good idea
Antenor: Let's give Helen and all the treasure back, we're gonna lose
Paris: I'll give back the treasure, but Helen stays
King Priam: Look, let's go eat. Idaios, go down to the Greeks and see if we can spend a day getting our dead.
Idaios: Hey, Greeks, we'll give up the treasure, but not Helen. And can we burn our dead tomorrow?
Agememnon: We take all or nothing. And yeah, take a day to burn the dead.
Greeks: *burn dead*
Trojans: *burn dead*
Greeks: *build moat and wall around ships*
Poseidon: They built a wall and didn't sacrifice to me?!?
Zeus: Would you shut up? You can tear it down when they're done.

First, the guy shows up and tells me they don't take checks. Um, since when?
So then he calls in my debit card number. Now, 30 minutes later, he hasn't shown up with the slip for me to sign.
I finally (thanks for taking a 20 minute break when I go to lunch, Sandra) take a sip of the tea, and it's sweet tea, not unsweet. I call them, they say the guy has already left. She waffles about what they can do about it.
I know what I'm going to do about it...
edited to add: OH! And the fuckers don't bring napkins.

Thetis: *sigh* Hang on. Zeus, punish Agamemnon
Zeus: *sigh* Hera will hate me, but OK
Zeus: Shut up, Hera

Monday I sent her an email asking if she was still having problems, since I hadn't heard from her. She said they were still coming up, and to get around it she simply never turned off her computer. And that point, I turned it over to my boss, since she wasn't being cooperaive.
The person's boss, a really bitchy lawyer, sent an email to my boss saying that I had told the user to print out the errors, and that I often didn't have answers so they would go to Stephanie.
Mr. Bill is ticked. He says that if they were going to Stephanie, she should have been coming to me or him. He thinks that she's putting me down again to other people, like she did right after I got here.
And there's no other jobs for me to leave here and take instead. *sigh* I hate this shit.
