Work. Big changes, consolidating operations and moving them and all sorts of other shit. But, they're going to start beta testing this shit with AZ, AK, and CA. Awesome.

Well, when is that?

01/2013 - 12/2013
We don't know, we'll let you know when we know more.
01/2014
We don't know, we'll let you know when we know more.
02/2014
We don't know...
Wait, you have 1 week to apply for the new jobs opening up, and we strongly recommend you do apply for all, as we will be evaluating everyone to retain the best talent...read: Apply or risk your future.
Okay, we'll give an extra THREE DAYS to apply. BUT THAT'S IT.
Okay, so we're having a meeting today to tell you that we'll be having meetings tomorrow to tell you what single job we will permit you to have, take it or leave it. But we'll give you two days to decide! (Wed)
Sorry guys, we know we said we'd tell you today, but we only told CA. Maybe tomorrow! (Th)

The irritation is that we are supposed to confirm our acceptance by Monday. I do not work Fridays, and I am not wasting my time driving in to work just to find out that our idiotic corporate lunatics maybe/sortof/kinda decided. Or not.

I told my boss last night that if he really wants to call me to tell me what I'm allowed, he can, but I don't generally answer my phone on weekends. And most likely, I'll wait until Monday, and then tell them that they promised me two days to decide, so I'll decide by Wednesday.

My mother agrees this is a clusterfuck of a mess, and pretty demoralizing, because a lot of people are reading this as, "this is your one shot to be part of the future," aka Your job is in jeopardy.

Edit: AHAHAHAHAHA...I got the one I wanted, in a later training date, but that's ok. This moves me to a building closer to my house, but the best part is, my roommate is in the same department, same training date, so same building. I just keep the seniority over him.

I cut through my thumb really deep. Spent all morning in the hospital and I'll be fine, but now it hurts like crazy and I can't work and I can't play because I can't use the thumb.

It's a weird combination of being in pain and being really bored. I just want today to end.

Probably while carving little wooden figurines in the shed where he runs and hides when his dad gets mad after one of his pranks.

Yay references that 3% of this board will get! :D

Yeah, is what Health & Safety made us do to vent frustration instead of pillaging the English. :(

I was cutting up chicken for lunch with a very, very sharp knife. >.<

To top it off, when I got home I ordered a pizza since I was in too much pain to cook (that's what I was attempting to do when I cut my thumb in hte first place) and now my tummy hurts like crazy since I shouldn't be having pizza dough when gluten intolerant. This day is in the top 3 of worst days of my life.

@Era thanks for the laugh, needed that :p

Hearthstone just crapped out on me as I was about to deliver the killing blow in an Arena match. I played my first card, then it all froze and wouldn't let me do anything else. I got a message popup shortly after saying I'd disconnected. The game didn't DC, though - it just booted me straight out to the arena page, and counted it as a loss. :(

People, expecially a couple core raiders and one of the other officers, behaving like 10 years old again for the 100th time.

This time I had to be the bad cop, and actually kick the 3 dramaqueens out of the guild. I may have seriously compromised our raiding roster, but it feels to me it had to be done.

I think I did something stupid when changing my mother's car battery this weekend, and somehow managed to strain a muscle in my back. Either that, or I slept wrong.

I want to change my prot transmog, but not my ret transmog, but they share their boots and belt. :(

Also, I've finished farming the Ivory Raptor, and I'm still missing one from the eggs. I didn't even find one egg during the last hour and a half of farming.

Somewhere in the office (or a neighbour), SOMEONE decided to cook the awesomest-smelling piece of veal in a long, long while.
And all I've had for lunch is a goddamn tomato.

I can't focus with that smell. I wanna go FEEEEEEEEED :evil:
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

New roommate has no job, very little work experience, not much money, and had been living with his mother until now (over 30). He hasn't applied for a job yet, but has applied for food stamps. This does not bode well.
