I just don't know why these people think that I can pull stuff out of my ass, I really don't. I mean, I admit that my bottom is rather large, but I can't pull people or staplers out of it!

No, no, this doesn't mean that I like my job any less, but it does mean that I'm having a bad day.

I had one lady call and get mad at me because one of the analysts wasn't waiting at her dest for this call. A call, I might add, that she had no way of knowing was going to arrive. And I had an analyst break our high end stapler. He stuck industrial staples into it, jambed it, and then tried to pry the thing open with a letter opener. His excuse? Apparently staples are staples and all sizes fit into all staplers ... I just ... I have no words for that kind of special.

Then, adding to my mood, the city is terring up Bank Street. For those not in Ottawa, Bank is one of the major streets through downtown. Traffic is being rerouted, sidewalks are closed to pedestrians, and it's become bloody difficult to get from point A to point B. Now this has been going on for a while now, no it's nothing new. What is new, however, is that the construction workers have gone on strike. Now I'm all for Unions. They serve their purpose and, honestly, I don't know what the beef is so I can't comment. But this? This is slagging annoying, it really is! And I can't help but wonder how many of the small businesses will go under in the meantime? They've been terring up Bank Street for about 6 months now, and now, they're on Strike ...

But, calmness will return, and in an attempt to relax, I am speding my coffee break doing mindless quizzez.

I have spent my day calling people to confirm their address with us. I tell them that I'm with Foreign Afairs and they don't know who we are. My boss refuses to believe that, even though the name was changed 15 years ago, most people still think we're External Affairs. Yeah, minor difference, I know, but to the public, it's the difference between the government and a telemarketer.

On the plus side, I've been able to practice my french. Chaque Quebecqois que j'ai parlé avec ont seulement communiqué en français, et ils ont parlé très, très rapidement. C'était bonne pratique pour l'essai français du gouvernement, ainsi je ne devrais pas etre désolé. So even though the job sucks, I will keep at it, so that I will be able to pass my damned French Test and get a decent job with the government, or better yet, with a museum.

Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy working as a temp, but really, something stable would be more than nice ...

On the other side of the coin, life is going well. My creative juices are flowing and I seem to have gotten a handle on the Transformers Filet crochet. The pattern seems to be working out well, and I'll try a test run later this week (possibly this evening). And I finally have my cell phone how I like it. Betty Boop is the screen image, and the Munster's Theme is the ringtone. Two different eras, but all happy kitch. And I admit, I also downloaded The Transformers Theme ... I couldn't resist.

And that's really about it. Well except for a quiz that I nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] julie_ann. ... Hmmm ... I like that. I've always had a soft spot for Mystique. I do love the bad girls.

You're Siddhartha!

by Hermann Hesse

You simply don't know what to believe, but you're willing to try
anything once. Western values, Eastern values, hedonism and minimalism, you've spent
some time in every camp. But you still don't have any idea what camp you belong in.
This makes you an individualist of the highest order, but also really lonely. It's
time to chill out under a tree. And realize that at least you believe in

I'll have to look into this book. I've never heard of it before this.

Of course I have way too much on my plate right now. I have to finish Walking the Bible: A Journey by Land through the Five Books of Moses before I can move onto anything else.

You Passed 8th Grade Science

Congratulations, you got 7/8 correct!

I don't remember any of those questions from 8th grade science. ... Of, course I don't remember much of the 8th grade, but that's irrelevant.

After you die...
Parallel Universe

After death, you will continue to exist as if nothing has ever happened. You will continue to be yourself, but because you are in a parallel universe, some things will be different. You may not have married the same person, you might live in a different spot, but you will be the same person underneath it all and you will continue your life unaware that you ever died.
