We won't talk about work-- we just won't, because that is when I get angry and then I want to punch people in the face

Instead I will talk about how much I am enjoying "A Court of Wings and Ruin" by Sarah J. Maas.

I like her Aelin Galithenius series alright, I suppose; though some (most) of the characters don't resonate with me like the Court series. And I actually hated the first book when I read it, A Court of Thorns and Roses was not my most favorite because I didn't care for Tamlin, I didn't like Feyre (until things happened that made her a more interesting character) but I read the next book, and Sarah J. Maas rained down on me a sea of INTERESTING CHARACTERS (tm). I adored Mor, Amren, Cassian, Azriel and Rhysand, they were my squad goals right there, and then you got to see more of Feyre's sisters (whom also A++++), and that is quite simply a recipe for epic.

The Throne of Glass series was interesting but the characters for the most part-- Caleana was too cocky, I didn't really like Chaol, I didn't like her other significant other, her mate-- I did like Lysandra but only because I have a big fondness for bitchy bitches (*waves the Team Nesta flag*), and yeah, I did like the Blackbeaks, my favorite part of the entire book was that coven of witches.

But for me, a book hinges on interesting characters-- if a book doesn't have characters that I like (or enough of them), it falls flat.

Rome was saved for good characterizations.

Look at Twilight-- I disliked the main couple, but I did like the side characters and they were the only reason I kept listening to the audiobook when otherwise I would of been like "KILL THE BOOK WITH FIRE"-- so yes, I can say that Twilight has 'some' merit, not a lot but some; certainly not enough to think that a 20 year old werewolf imprinting on a 5 year old is fine-- ewww Stephanie Meyers, EWWWW!)

Now to start making some Sarah J. Maas icons!

How is everyone's week going?

Hopefully well!
alwaysbeenasmiler: (Halle☆Got a secret-- can you keep)
Midnight is what time we got out-- normally start time is 11:30 and end time is 10:00 which is a straight 10 hours' but today we came in at 10:30 and got out at 12:00-- which is too much time.. TOO MUCH TIME DEALING WITH PEOPLE WHO TAKE WAY TOO MUCH OF MY ENERY-- it's like everywhere, everywhere "STUPIDITY SURROUNDS", and you'd think that I wasn't an ENFP with the talk that I am indulging in.

But most people forget one vital function of the ENFP personality-- that is Te.

Ni (function-dominant): SPARKLES BUNNIES RAINBOWS BOOKS VIDEO GAMES ALL THE THINGS *grabby hands*
Fi (function-auxiliary): Hey, let me sit here and read sappy romance novels and listen to Keane music all day
>
Si (function-inferior): *the kid with the ipod stuck in his ears, playing bejeweled blitz on his cellphone-- every single minute of every single day*

Right between Fi and Si, there is Te--

There was a song written about my Te function, it was by Cake, entitled "Short Skirt, Long Jacket"-- Tertiary function, hates people, hates everyone, likes coffee, likes songs about shooting the balls off of men, is a mean ass motherfucking bitch-- it is the part that exists while I am at work-- there is no fun times with me (unless you are Owen or a chosen few who my Te has deemed 'hard workers' and therefore worthy of being exposed to the other areas of my personality), I will tell you exactly what I think of you and I will do it in the most blunt and brutal way-- the queen of the bitch slap (the ENFP bitch slap is as real as the INFJ door slam-- and the Te function pretty much invented it). There are many people who I have plotted out their deaths intricately in my mind, but unfortunately for Te, my other functions click into place once I leave that raging cesspit, and thus no opportunity to do so (also, as we've discussed-- there's no video games in prison, so murder is a no go, I'd be SOOOO bored)

Today Te was in overdrive, so much that I hopefully will sleep like a baby-- seriously 13 hours in that place like 13 hours too many

Did I mention that I have to wake up in 7 hours to do it ALL again-- motherfucking A-----~!!

What I wouldn't give to work with competent people-- and people say that I act way different on facebook then at work-- well d'uh! I'm happier when I don't have to deal with constant stupidity-- you'd think I was a babysitter or something.

Yes, I'm harsh-- I know--

Sorry for not responding to posts or anything-- I did read all of them (okay I skimmed them)-- but mondays are usually not ideal response days for me-- hopefully y'all had a better and more fufilling monday then I did-- guess I better throw myself at my bed and hope that this adrenaline pans out so that I can sleep!

ARGH!

I can't even-- not with the day that I've had.

I don't like to bitch and complain especially on a platform such as this, but sometimes it's unavoidable.

We recently got a new supervisor in our department. He's an alright guy but I don't have the rapport that I had with the previous supervisor (yes, he was an royal arsehole but I knew how to handle him, and I usually didn't mind when he teased me, because in 3 years, I was able to read him and what he said, between the lines and the whole nine yards). Well this supervisor really doesn't know me yet, and when you first meet me, I am like a cat that just sits back and observes you. I don't impress someone with my crazy enfpness right off the bat (I blame it on the fact that I'm a virgo-- so you have to tread very closely with me unless I instantly recognize you as a kindred spirit)

Well first of all Owen came in early, and so Mike (the supervisor) went up to him and was like "Your woman is picking so don't distract each other"

Okay, okay-- I can see that. But then as the day progressed, I noticed a trend...

I was being referred to as "Owen's Woman" by him. He didn't say it to my face, but he said it to other people including Owen. EXCUSE ME! I HAVE A NAME-- IN CASE YOU DID NOT KNOW, I AM CALLED NIA! But it was "Owen's Woman.. ad nauseum"

Granted, I am proud to be Owen's, just like he is proud to be mine. But for jesus fucking sake, this is work-- we are supposed to be PROFESSIONAL up in here-- but I guess somewhere along the line, the memo got lost. So I was enraged about that-- as well as the fact that I was being pushed to pick faster when there are people in our department who do little to know work-- You know, I'll pick faster when it doesn't require Michael fucking Stalcup to have THREE people over there to help his line, because all he can do is stand around and surf the fucking internet or wandering around like he lost his lambs. (no seriously-- his line is his own but he drags his ass so that he can get people over there to help-- yeah talk to me about picking faster and I'll tell you where to shove it)

Okay, taking sip of tea-- deep calming breath

Cindy, the order control lady told me that Mike was just 'joking'. You don't joke with me right off the bat, you earn that shit. You earn it by being who you say you are, by acting with integrity and treating me with respect.

Though it was funny to hear Owen say "I'm moving to LTL"; and with me eventually moving departments too-- I won't be stuck there forever, just have to wait until the new client comes in so that I can take the order control position back there, I will be moving to reunite with my old supervisor, and seriously while he is a stress bucket, I can handle him.

Sorry-- that was totally not a very fun post.

Okay you guys, I am going to have Paint Shop Pro in my hand tonight and you know, it's been so long since I've created ANY sort of icons that I am going to open up the floor and create icons for MY FRIENDS LIST. If you are feeling particularly guinea pig-ish.. here is the 411.

1.) Request 1 - 3 subjects that you want iconned. (or if you really have your heart set on a certain subject, then just tell me (if I don't know the series, I'll probably ask for some sort of reference)
2.) if you are feeling particularly daring, you can say "You choose!" and I will choose something from your interests!
3.) Profit.

Examples of my icons can be found at [community profile] isoylent as well as in my userinfo

GO!
