...FYI, being Multi-Case SUCKS. The call comes in, and I'm like *FLAIL* WBRGKZLMNAOACKLGHZ *FLAIL*WHERE'S THE GREETING SCRIPT?! And if I don't fail completely and miss the call, chances are I've never even heard of the case before, so when the caller asks me questions I'm like "A-durrrrrr, wha?" because they know more about the case than I do, and I can only scan the FAQs so quickly, and the caller usually picks up on my hesitation and the fact that I SOUND LIKE A MORON and get argumentative. On top of this bullshit call volume has been high, the calls I've been getting have been REALLY HARD and involve a lot of running around and fetching supervisors and doing callbacks, and I got called in today by the Adecco reps to discuss my apparent recent rash of tardiness (which, as I explained to them, was do to my computer breaking, and also my bus breaking). So, this week has been pretty stressful.
I had an awesome weekend backpacking along the PCT south of Mt. Hood with Richard, near Frog Lake and Little Crater Lake. The weather was off-and-on sprinkling but otherwise decent, and the trail didn't involve stunning vistas, but the trees were pretty. Our campsite was a really nice one under the trees next to a lake, and there were ducks and geeses and things, and a chorus of frogs at night. We did 9ish or 10ish miles each day, and I managed to survive without destroying my legs and feet too terribly badly, or getting too sunburned, or getting too many mosquito bites. :DD
This weekend I'm driving out to the Coast to hang with Lauren, like we'd planned to do earlier in the month, only this time with less fail. Also, Dar's gone home to Hawaii and James is opting to enjoy some alone time, so I'm going by myself. So it'll be just me and Lauren, yay! We make a good Adventure Duo (specifically, Chip and Dale, Rescue Rangers, btw... she's Chip, I'm Dale), I think, because we have damn near identical interests, and neither of us have phobias. ...No offense, phobics. This means that if there are bugs and spiders and starfish and caves, we will fucking revel in them. Revel, I say. >:D ...This is not to imply I do not enjoy Adventuring with Dar and James as well. Because, you know, I do. But. Still. Sometimes it's just nice to be like... SUPER ROOMMATE TWIN POWERS... ACTIVATE!! ...If ya know what I mean. ^_^
Finally, all you people waiting on my beta services, ARGH SORRY ARGH, I just have not had the time or energy for anything involving thinking this week. ;_; I am excited about your stories, and I will get to them, promise!
