Come on, lady.  If you are a "professional fundraiser," you should at least get the name of the organization you are representing correct.  It is "National Rifle Association" -- not "Rifles".

Yes, it is official, my boss is trying to discredit me, belittle my work, and get rid of me, or at least make it socially/politically acceptable to promote a person with 1/10 my experience, 1/2 my education, but -  who also has 10x the kiss-bosses-posterior skills. And I thought it was just a coincidence that I was being given the dirtiest jobs around while the little darling did some light filing and talk about her new shoes.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
You know that I have a really bad habit of beating myself up when I feel guilty or ashamed of things that I've forgotten about.  That doesn't entitle you to drop a guilt trip on me whenever you want to come up and spend time with me, or if you want to bully me out of playing what I want to at the local convention just because you can't bear to see me doing something without you if we're in the same three-mile radius.  I'm really fruiting sick of you doing this.  No, I'm not interested in steampunk. No, I'm not interested in live-action mafia, I play plenty of it online. I am going to plunk my rear down for seven straight slots of Pathfinder and to see if I can't reconnect with my old Society group, and if you don't like that, well, too fruitcup bad.  Go do your live-action stuff and try not to drool over the women in corsets...

This will likely be the only chance I have in the entire year for me to play Pathfinder. I'm not going to agree to play the same stupid game demos with you just so you can show me off, that you can prove to the rest of your friends that you bagged a "gamer girl" and then hint that I'm planning on dressing up as Ivy from Soul Calibur for Halloween if you get me drunk enough.

How many times do I have to tell you people where we were going on the dang ship! The Carribean, people.... And are all of you really incapable of creating some of the story yourselves? Really? If I'm going to come up with every single little detail in the whole game, why the heck do I need players in it? I'd rather just write a darn book! Good lords above, what happened to the imagination in people today? What happened to paying attention and knowing what the heck is going on around you? Telling everyone the same exact thing within a one hour period of time should not have to be explained again!

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Missed my friend's stand-up comedy show last night.  For some inexplicable reason, management at the club decided they were only going to have him do one show, instead of the normal two (one show a night during the summer makes sense, the crowds are pretty much always smaller then...but during the winter?  ESPECIALLY after the holidays, when people don't have fifteen or twenty other places to be?  C'mon...)

As a result, when I got there twenty-five minutes before showtime (they normally start seating half an hour before), they were just starting to announce that they'd sold out for the night.  Twenty minute drive there, just to turn around and drive back home.  Thanks, guys...

Flu season is raging like a wildfire around here and I'm up to my knees in snot and sick people.  Flu shots are widely available for the first time in years and no one seems to get them.  Why don't the people MOST AT RISK GET THEIR POMEGRANATE vaccines?

If I don't answer my phone the first time, what makes you think I will answer the next three consecutive calls?! YOU are a grown woman and you can figure out how to manage a class yourself, thank you very much! I am not your little pamphlet on how to score good with the Nursing profs. Ya annoying creampuff.

What are the known outstanding issues we should be aware of?
->The new server will introduce new issues; this is all we know at this point.

Got to love working with an outside client. Mind you we are suppose to release the software application tomorrow and received this nifty note yesterday. Joy.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Really cool game concept in GPIA. Express interest, but don't hear anything. Go back a couple weeks later to find that the GM created a game (but forgot to tell me)! Game is still accepting players! Huzzah! Create RTJ, read SRD, get really excited about new game, then nothing. Then nothing. Then why does my main page look different? Oh, because the game was deleted :-/

Hey, game designer. Instead of telling us to change things that don't make sense, how about you design them to make sense in the first place?

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
I've done it to myself again...overbooked and getting stressed.  Go into tech rehearsals for one show this weekend.  I can't be there the first day of tech because we're doing call-back auditions for the musicians for our summer show that day, and since it's the end of the fiscal year and our boss is tight-fisted, we have absolutely no hours available for any of our non-salaried personnel to help, so it's all up to the three of us who are on salary to handle it all (at least it isn't an open-call audition...these guys all have appointments.  That simplifies things, A LOT!!!)

However, I also have to have a bunch of costumes finished for ANOTHER show by this weekend, as well, because one of the performers is going out of town and Saturday will be the ONLY time the group gets to rehearse with him before the final dress rehearsal.  I need to look at the newly-revised rehearsal schedule and see if that means all the other costumes I've got and will be getting also have to be done by then, or if it's just the stuff for that number.

AND I have a production meeting for NEXT MONTH's show on Wednesday night.  I should really not be sitting here on the computer, I should be doing something about getting all this stuff done...but at the moment, I feel so mentally overwhelmed at everything that has to happen this week that I can't concentrate on the project I'm supposed to be doing.

Hopefully, this will be kinda like primal-scream therapy and release enough tension that I can focus (or at least go to bed and sleep, so I can be more productive tomorrow...)

AND, to make me feel even happier about the situation, my shoulder had been kind of improving, until the last couple of weeks when we kept getting several inches of snow each day for several days straight.  All that shoveling did a number on me.  Even though I don't feel like I can spare the time to go see a doctor about it, it's getting to the point where I'm starting to feel like toughing it out for another couple of weeks is really going to screw something up (if it hasn't already, at this point).

Too many irons in the fire...and someone used one of them on my shoulder.  It's gonna be a long week.

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Weather called for another four to eight inches of snow on top of the two and half feet we already have... What happened? It freaking rained.. So now the snow is a wet nasty collaboration of mud and just plain nastyness. Oh yeah, and the packed stuff on the roads are now ice... Thank you weather man, you really know what you're doing huh?
