Someone is vigorously bathing in my lap to make sure she looks lovely for her new human. :)

furiously grooming!

Barring disaster, we'll be transporting her in two weeks! And then she can get as much petting as she wants:

Thea getting lap scritches

Birthdays are pretty great. :)

Had a good day! Didn't do all that much, and even when I tried to do some homework my brain went flomp (I blame the lack of sleep, which, brain, this is all your own goddamn fault), but it was nice. :3

Vidchatted and played Terraria with Azy, my father bought me cake, and we went out for SUPER DELICIOUS duck, it was great. :D Also I got to see Yuki for a couple of minutes when we were picking Sibling up!

And now I go sleeps, yes. Yesss.

We have found a possible home for Thea and, although it's not definite, it's pretty likely and it looks like it will work out WONDERFULLY for everyone involved. \o/

Why awake??

I really dunno. I have a headache from playing a game (it's a problem I have with some games, mainly first person shit but not always, woe), so it might just be my brain went splat, but more probably I am just a dumb. *sighs*

Didn't do much in the way of homework today, either. But I did watch the lectures I missed, so that's something! (The nice thing about watching them at home is I can pause them when I'm getting sleepy and take a nap! The bad thing about watching them at home is they take much longer than they take at uni...)

I'mma turn thirty in a couple of hours. Technically it's my birthday *right now*, but I won't feel like it is until after I wake up, hahaha. I was born at some ridiculous time of morning, so yeah. Nothing much planned, though we are going out to dinner at a duck restaurant. :9 (Yes, apparently all they cook is duck.) Sibling's been there before and... knows someone who knows the owner or something?? IDK, Sibing's whole social network thing is massive and terrifying, and I don't understand it at all. Anyway, I like duck, but Mama doesn't, so since she's in India at the moment it's an A++ opportunity for the rest of us to go there. |D So, looking forward to that!

damn this week

Monday: go to work at 6am, leave at 9:30pm

Tuesday: go to work at 7am, leave at 11:30pm

Wednesday: go to work at 5am, leave...?

boss and I actually stayed at coworkers house nearby. i slept on the couch with their very adorable and fluffy and friendly cat. we were going to get hotel rooms on the company's dime, but literally all of the hotels nearby are booked solid, probably for the same event we're fucking doing all the signage for. and the event starts at 8am, and I'm still printing the programs which we only got approved at 9pm last night.

i have a headache of the type where there is a small intermittent ice pick being rammed up into one spot at the base of my neck, angled up into my head and bottoming out behind my right eye. it's not constant, it's not regular enough to be called throbbing, it just sort of spasms periodically (frequently) and makes me flinch. lacking drugs (including all my normal meds) I am heavily self medicating with fucktons of water and coffee.

and there's no break in sight, because as soon as this event launches and we can legitimately say we've done all we can for it, we have to hit the ground running to try to make some progress against the avalanche load of stuff that's backed up in the normal queue. we already reached the point yesterday of turning clients away because no, we can't promise a damned thing, not anything, not for the rest of the week, definitely not for same day fuck all anything.

thank god work only explodes like this once every handful of years. >_

Recovery day, I guess?

I didn't wake up until 3pm, so uh, yeah. Been sleepy all day, too, which. Oh brains, why you do the thing??

Still, hoping that tomorrow I'll be more or less back to normal!

EDIT: We have found a Very Probable Home for Thea! Go internet.

(Click any photo for a larger version!)

Hello, internet! I'm Thea. Here I am in my favorite spot (somebody's lap):

Thea in my lap looking up at the camera sleepily

I'm a female dilute calico, and the vet and the vet dentist think I'm about five years old. I grew up on the streets of Baltimore, but it's cold and lonely out there and I like people too much, so now I need a forever home! I'm an absolute sweetheart who'll be in your lap or draped over your shoulder the minute I meet you, but there's one catch: I need to be an only cat.

Thea asleep up against my legs

More about me! And more pictures! )

Does it sound like you could be my human? If so, leave a comment with your email address, and the humans will get in touch with you. (Or, you can email [personal profile] synecdochic at synecdochic@dreamwidth.org.) Anonymous comments are allowed; you don't need a Dreamwidth account. I'm in Baltimore right now, and the humans would prefer somebody within a few hours' drive or somebody who's willing to come pick me up themselves, but if you're the absolute right person to take me in, they're willing to talk about flying me to you, especially if you can pay for some or all of the costs. (Having all my teeth pulled wasn't cheap!) [EDIT: The humans have a friend who might be able to put a flight on frequent flyer miles for me, so they're willing to escort me outside the immediate area for the right home!]

I'm looking forward to finding someone I can help with everything, drape on top of, and sleep on!

(Please share this with your friends! For the first round of looking we'd prefer not much further than friends-of-friends, because we'd like to know the people she's going to or know someone who knows them, but if the first efforts don't pan out, we'll try again with a wider reach. We also already know the rescue organization we'll turn to if we can't find her a home through word of mouth, so you don't need to research rescue options for us!)

 ugh I really really need a better work/life/social balance

but work just keeps sapping all of my energy and creativity.

I love doing my best for the kiddos (especially in a system that seems designed to sap it out of them starting in middle school, but shit I really, really want to get home and be good for more than just game or read, then bed)

I should mention, just for grins and giggles, that we name our printers at work. Especially the large oversize machines. Those all have names. The tech who set them up for us and trained us on them applauded us for having one of the more unique set of names he'd ever seen a shop use (apparently simpsons characters are popular? or dilbert names?)

But no! We're geeks. So instead you get snippets of conversation like this:

Me: "Is the regular paper on Milano or Galactica?"
C: "Galactica! Milano has banner on it."

Boss: "If you want to print to Serenity you have to take the file over on a thumb drive."
Me: "But you can load the print onto Heart of Gold and send the cut template straight from Illustrator?"

Milano & Galactica - 60" roll fed Epson printers
Serenity - 60" eco-solvent Epson printer that can print opaque white and metallics
Heart of Gold - 60" oversize vinyl cutter

(Millennium Falcon was nixed for not rolling off the tongue easily. Enterprise was nixed on account of every damned version of it blowing up and we don't want to give the machines ideas.)

Yeah, I have no idea why I'm awake, because I barely fucking slept last night. I'm guessing maaaaybe three hours? And not consistently, either. =/ I finally gave up trying at about 7am, so um. Yeah. Fuck you too, anxiety!!

Ramble )

Still, am attempting to not be a dumb, so going to bed now! (If I can't sleep I may murder someone. Or at least take one of my anti-anxiety meds, which I probably should've done last night but I didn't think of it until this morning.)

Yes, I just earwormed myself with an old classic. =P

At work, carpooled with the boss in my car, and expect to be here until super late due to the SUPER IMPORTANT event starting tomorrow that we need to do all the print and install for. Or rather, the rest of the department does - my job is to stay on top of all the OTHER day to day jobs while everyone else is scrambling around appeasing this one event. Which mostly means I'm up to my eyeballs in badges, banners, placards, books, stickers, and all the other every day sort of junk. Oh, and our printer is still busted with a junked up transfer so it lays down pigment very spotty. So I'm waiting for the tech to get here and fix it. =P

Mostly a lazy weekend (yay!) in which we got all the plants into pots (yay!) and now have multiple pots of tiny seedling cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers, green onions, basil, oregano, cilantro, and dill out on the deck. And it's raining, so hey, welcome to real life little plants, here's more water then you really need! =P

Also played WoW. Finished all the zones except Suramar, already have the rep grind done, we're so close to flying I can taste it... and now we need to run dungeons. ALL THE DUNGEONS. Though, really, we're pretty much mythic geared... tempted to see what would happen if we tried to 2-man on normal. >_> Boss has offered to join and rolled a healer because he likes playing support, but he's only level 100 and is splitting his time with Destiny (where he's trying to tick off his achievement list before Destiny 2 rolls out, because apparently Bungee is awesome and will send you commemorative t-shirts. =P) So for right now we're either 2-manning stuff, or wait until the weekend and hope we can grab my dragon's side of the family for a few dungeon runs on west coast time.

(Seriously, it's, like, ALL THE DUNGEONS. Arcway, Neltharion's lair, Emerald Nightmare, Maw of Souls, Eye of Azshara, Halls of Valor, maybe Court of Stars too... I had to write a list. =P All for quests. UGH. SMH for the "force everyone to run dungeons" mechanic, though at least they've made it so that my PvE playing ass can be reasonably geared for mythic dungeons purely with quest drop and bought gear.)

it's been awhile. it's nice to see dreamwidth becoming more active as of late, although the fact that it's due to livejournal fucking up again is...less nice.

i'm not actually sure what else to put here. this is mostly a 'hey flist, i'm still around' post, i guess.

I'm talking about my assignment again. Because I do! I honestly enjoy doing all the ridiculous, sometime brain-eating, occasionally are-you-fucking-kidding-me-I-need-to-go-scream-now absolute fuckery that is coding. And this is for my webapps subject, so it's HTML and CSS, which I'm pretty damn comfortable with at this point, and JS, which is New and Difficult, but honestly not THAT difficult. I mean, we're only really doing very basic programming logic, I did more complicated things in intro to programming! It's just a new language and my brain being a giant buttface.

And my brain is. I mean. I didn't even get OUT OF BED until 3 this afternoon, and it still took me quite a while to make myself get started. Because oh my god we can't do the thing!!!! or some bullshit, I don't even know.

I'm not done, but I'm getting close - I have classes tomorrow so OH SHIT I FORGOT TO SHOWER fuck fuck fuck, I'll have to do that when I get up it's much too late now. Anyway, that's why I'm going to bed rather than finishing it. It's difficult, and it's time-consuming, and my brain needs a break, but it's actually really satisfying to do! So why the fuck couldn't we have started earlier, brain???

Brains are such bullshit, I swear.

Fuck you and your everything.

Seriously. I've been sitting here for... well, somewhere between seven and nine HOURS, not doing the thing I wanted to get done today.

That is a lot of hours to not do something!!!

Being this crazy is fucking exhausting, and I STILL HAVE TO DO THE THING.

(The thing is an assignment. So yeaaah.)

I am going to bed now. Have queued up Azy to help me stay on track tomorrow, and also here is a public promise that I am going to book myself a therapy appointment when it's not... 3am Saturday Night/Sunday Morning. I mean, I'm fairly sure Brainpoker doesn't keep her phone on noise at night, but just in case...

Fucking brains. Also bureaucrats.

Also, I got an early birthday present!! :D Mama's leaving for India tomorrow, so she gave me this poncho she knitted for me!! It's BRIGHT and CHEERFUL and SUPER SOFT and WARM and I LOVE IT :D :D :D :D :D Perfect sort of clothes for wearing at the computer, best idea my Mama is awesome <3
