Angela, Zolac no Miko


So while I was in Honolulu they moved me to a new desk. I will miss our group! T_T But Mimi's still there, and the other people near me are cool. The guy sitting next to me is an outgoing redhead dude named Lucas, who's totally awesome, even if he is leaving me already for a new job. We spent like all day Friday chatting about Miyazaki movies, anime, Star Trek, and science fiction franchises. Also he got the WEIRDEST CALL EVER. Weird as in it seemed totally normal until the weird part, which came out of the blue. He got a call on the PGE Refund line, some lady from Portland, he filed a claim for her over the phone, blah blah, he read her her confirmation code, spelling out each letter like we're required to, "Y as in Yellow, I as in Igloo, P as in Paul"... and then she spells it back, okay, to double check, and she's like, "D as in Deathcamp...." ...WTF?! It totally threw him off for the rest of the call, and we've been laughing about it ever since. Like, seriously, wtf?! WHO SAYS THAT?! WHY WOULD YOU THINK OF SUCH A THING?!

This weekend was super lazy. I spent all day Saturday marathoning Battlestar Galactica, and then I went to Crystal's Chocolate Party. We ate brownie bites and fudge and triple chocolate fudge cake, and dipped angel food cake bites and strawberries in a chocolate fountain, and we watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and gossiped about ex-boyfriends. It was fantastic. Oh, and she cut my hair, thank Zolac.

It was the fracking weirdest day at work today. (Yes, I said fracking; see above.) I get there and my computer won't turn on. The thing is freaking BROKEN. So I sit there for a long time while Doug rushes around fixing everyone else's tech problems, and I help Mimi out with some of hers, and then Doug moves me to the desk of some lady named Sam, who's gone for the week, and I try to do my NavTime, but I can't, because I don't have Sharepoint. So I chase down Doug (easier said than done) and he prints my stats out, and I do my NavTime, and I prepare to go to work. ...But I can't because my email is broken, and my Claims Matrix is broken, and I don't have the Chrysler Bankruptcy Call Log. So Doug gives me a new copy of Claims Matix, and tries for about ten years to fix my email before finally giving up and telling me to get on the phones. So I move all my stuff over from my desk and set it up and dig up a new headset (someone has stolen mine while all this is going on), and I finally go Available for calls (an hour and a half after I got to work, now), and I get my first call... and my headset is BROKEN and the lady can't hear a damn thing I'm saying. So I have to hunt up another one before I can actually get to work. So then things are ok, except for Interaction Client crashing THREE TIMES during the morning (and by morning, I mean, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.). And then just before 2, Ami comes through and tells us that anything not work-related needs to come off our desks right now, and I'm like, whatever, Big Wigs must be coming through (they did warn us on Friday not to wear jeans today), and I toss my book in a drawer. Like 30 seconds go by, and THE FUCKING FIRE ALARM GOES OFF. So the entire freaking building files out into the parking lot and stands around in the sun, and fire truck comes and goes, and then we all file back in, and I go to lunch. So, you know, all of that was weird, and I got very little actual work done, but I didn't stress about it. I mean, it's not my kuleana... so long as I get paid, right? It's all good. And Doug fixed my email while I was on lunch, so whatev.

And also... meme!

1. Put your music player (iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc etc etc) on shuffle.
2. For the first twenty-five songs that come up- and no cheating!- post the first line of the song.
3. If the title of the song comes up in the line, you have two options: you may replace the title with (song title here) or, if that would make it too obvious, you may skip the song. This is the only time you should skip a song! Skipping embarassing 90s pop songs takes the fun out of it, guys.
4. Let your friends guess the songs.

1. You're always ahead of the game, I drag behind
2. Once when I was thirty-one, I woke in the dead of night
