Juliet daydreams

Me on Oct 15

Again I must apologize...life keeps getting in the way of LJ updates. I really don't know what to do about my work. Some days I love it, some days I hate it. I really don't like anyone I work with. The money is terrible. The travel time can be frustrating. For the most part though they leave me alone to do my job and that is what I like about it. That and the extremely casual atmosphere. Still I really don't think it is for me and yes I am looking. I just won't take something unless it really and genuinely is a positive move forward. Also, I need to be sure that the new job doesn't have overtime...I'm taking a couple of DE courses now and I plan on continuing with that for at least the next 2-5 years to finish off a couple of diplomas and a degree.

As for the rest of my life, hmmm...what's been going on? The condo fiasco...some of the units (approx 7) in my building (huge building - probably over 150 suites) were treated for bed bugs. Thankfully mine is fine (but i knew that...). However, because a couple of the units near mine were affected my unit had to be given the "preventative" treatment which turned out to be such a hassle. I'm not going into detail but suffice to say I'm glad that is over with.

More positive was attending the Chapters/Indigo Rick Riordan event. For those of you who don't know, RR is the author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series (and the subsequent Heroes of Olympus series...and the Kane Chronicles...). He is my JK Rowling...as a Greek mythology loving classicist I'd rather Percy than Harry any day. It turned out to be a great lecture and the accompanying a/v presentation was rather enlightening. Those German book covers are atrocious...just sayin'. A the event I was fortunate to receive a free 'Camp Jupiter' purple t-shirt....SWAG bonus! (OK I really should have gone for the Camp Half Blood one...but purple...SPQR....laurel leaf crown....how could I resist?). I'm rereading the Heroes of Olympus series now. Ahh youth! Where were these books when I was a teenager?

More negative was the Doctor Who Series Seven Part 1 season finale (I'm not even sure if that is what it should be called). Really? That was it? It seemed kind of blah. Honestly...I expected more of a finale for Rory and Amy. Even the Weeping Angels weren't that impressive. Remember when Rose and Donna left.....now THOSE were finales. And now all the lucky people in the UK are watching Merlin Season Five...while I wait patiently for it to air here in January. Ho...hum. And speaking of British series NOT showing in Canada, there is not a peep as to when The Hollow Crown will air here?? Anyone? Anyone?

With the returning North American series now all pretty much back in full swing I'm so happy to have back OUAT. I forgot how much I LOVE that show. There can never be enough of Rumpelstiltskin, Charming, the Mad Hatter or Mulan IMO. I like the premiere of Arrow but could give or take Beauty and the Beast.  I was on the fence at first about Copper but it is filling the Sunday-night-Game-of-Thrones-Lost Girl-True Blood void quite nicely. I'm not sure if I'll continue watching The Vampire Diaries though as it keeps getting progressively more lame...or maybe it's just because I can't tolerate Elena's bad acting any longer. Person of Interest is still brilliant as is Hawaii Five 0. Quite truthfully I think Grimm just keeps getting better and better. Big Bang Theory...when did Amy become the highlight of the show? That just seems wrong. And get Howard back to earth, pronto. I'm tired of him in space...unless he bumps into Doctor Who, of course.

Now you know what I’ve felt like for the last six years but I couldn’t leave until NOW! So yes I can empathize. I think you should find something else especially since the commute is so long and pay terrible. Here’s to both of us finding new jobs shortly that are fulfilling!


The condo fiasco...

I still have to write that letter….prolly this weekend and send it to head office because it was really a FIASCO!!!


More positive was attending the Chapters/Indigo Rick Riordan event.

RR was made of awesome! I loved the way he presented and spoke. I only hope that one day I can emulate the type of book event.

Yes Amy and Rory got kind of shafted when compared to Rose and Donna finales but at the same time I think that they didn’t know what to do as technically the Ponds left the Doctor already when they went home albeit that was anticlimactic as well. Still Amy following Rory is fitting and it was indicated they had a good long life so all is well in Whoville. I have a funny feeling they had something else in mind and something happened to change things plus I don’t think anyone expected Karen Gillian to announce she was leaving the show when she did either. IDK.


OUAT. I forgot how much I LOVE that show.

It sucks you in…


I like the premiere of Arrow but could give or take Beauty and the Beast.

Completely agree plus BB is on at the same time as POI and there’s no way I’m leaving my ex VARP lol.


Person of Interest is still brilliant as is Hawaii Five 0.

I <3 my Varp!!! (and he cooks :D)


I was on the fence at first about Copper.

I really like Copper….but then I’m a sucker for Westerns….no idea why.


I'm not sure if I'll continue watching The Vampire Diaries though as it keeps getting progressively more lame...or maybe it's just because I can't tolerate Elena's bad acting any longer.

I know what you mean….not missing VD at all.


Quite truthfully I think Grimm just keeps getting better and better.

I can’t get enough of this show...it sucks you in even more than OUAT.


Big Bang Theory...And get Howard back to earth, pronto. I'm tired of him in space...unless he bumps into Doctor Who, of course.

LMAO but so true! Space station to TARDIS come in TARDIS...lol
