Getting A Little Better, Day By Day (As Told In Bullet-Points)  
  • Chapter is in for beta. I want to do one last polish on it before presstime, but I think it looks pretty good.
  • New video started. This one is my millionth attempt to get something good out of a Little Secrets trailer, although it's really too long to be. We'll see. A preview should be up shortly.
  • Will get back to comments tonight. Things have just been so busy and stressful lately. Just know that I love you all and the well wishes are really keeping me going.
  • The good news is that I'm no longer clinging to be ceiling in terror. And I don't work with the bully again until Sunday. He's not closing and will only be there until 6. I'm also getting a little more confident about the selling. Even if I can't sell it, I'm trying to make the effort. That's all they can ask. The boss even said that we have to at least TRY to sell it, but you can't force them.
  • The bad news? He closes on Monday (I work his department 6-12) and Tuesday (I'll be in Harmon doing four pallets where he can't get me). It think that's it, though. If I can just stay out of the line of fire, I'll be fine. And I'll deal with him and the rest of the stress when I get home. Don't care at this point. And I was right. Straight-shot from Sunday to Friday. *makes face* Oh, well. Will make for a good check.
  • And a million and one kisses and thank you's to januaried , for trying so hard to make me laugh with the crackbunnies yesterday. ILUSFM, bb!
  • Since I'm not counting today, as it's already started, and not counting tomorrow, as I'm off, SIX DAYS TO GO! SIX! I WILL MAKE IT!
  • I'm getting some Lush delivered shortly, thank God. I NEED the pick-me-up. :D

Aww bb. I'm sorry work is sucking ass right now. If it were me I couldn't do it. But then you only have SIX DAYS left until hols so that's the golden carrot right?

Omg. I want to go to Lush right now but since I discovered my alcohol in products allergy it's severely reduced my buying options but luckily Lush do a non-alcoholic range! Is it pervy if I just go in there and smell stuff?

spelling fail.

Is okay. It's not as if the job hasn't been sucking for the last couple of years; it's just that I think living under the doom cloud is finally taking its toll. I never seem to stay in one job longer than four years because of the high turn-over at most of them. I really just wish I could find my niche and stay there. *makes face*

Ohhhh, yes. I actually dreamed about the route on I-40 through the mountains in Tennessee last night. It's so close, I feel like I could reach out and touch Mount Pisgah at any moment. Soooo close.


*deep sigh*

And God, no! I have to admit that it's a total fetish for me, too. At the location that glitter_my_glam works at and we frequent, you can start smelling it subtly as you walk up the concourse. I get the addict-twitches whenever we can start smelling it full-force. AND IT CLINGS TO YOUR CLOTHES AFTER! *dies of happy*

*points to self* LUSH WHORE AND PROUD OF IT!

Yikes! Huge pic is huge on my flist but smaller on your entry. *puzzled*

You're very welcome! I really do want to write this crackfic, though. XD

Is because your F-List has a crush on Lois. Don't bother denying it. The proof is irrefutable.

And I will cheerlead you from behind my heavy black curtain. So as not to make horrified faces. :D

I'm so glad you're doing a bit better, hon! *snugs lots* Was so worried there for a while. O_O

Chapter's back in your inbox (I was on it with the quickness when I got it ^_~), so you should have more time to polish before posting. :p

*more snugs* :)

I vacillate back and forth. At this point, I'm forcing myself to stop caring so much about the politics of my job, although they are trying to make me because they know they can. It disgusts me more than anything else when someone uses a person's weakness against them just to further themselves or get out of doing something when they know someone else feels responsible. FUCK THAT. XD

So, it looks like this chapter's subject matter worked out much better. Wait until you see what we have planned for next. :D

ILU, BB! Thanks for worrying over me so!

Yeay for getting better :)
Hello Lois,
Charles here :)
I hope I am not bothering you when you are obviously so very busy.
I have 3 things I'd like to say:
1. I do not believe anyone should feel forced to work where they are unhappy.
2. I praise you for your intelligent and wise choices to better your situation.
3. I have read your complaints about a previous chapter you helped write, Why can't you just rewrite it and replace the old bad one?
P.S.: I've never had any problems with your work, I expect you are being too critical... Imho :)

Chaaaaarles. You will never be a bother. Period. I love hearing from you.

I do not believe anyone should feel forced to work where they are unhappy.

Me neither. It especially sucks because I used to LOVE my job. And the crew I worked with (with the occasional exception). Now I understand why certain stores always had a high turn-over rate. :(

I praise you for your intelligent and wise choices to better your situation.

Thanks! *blows kiss* I tried it once before and couldn't get either the hours I needed or the asking price I needed, so I'm hoping for better luck this time. :D

I have read your complaints about a previous chapter you helped write, Why can't you just rewrite it and replace the old bad one?

I think I was being a little too hard on myself, looking back at it. Some of the scenes needed to have a little more description instead of just telling the reader what to see. The biggest problem was that I was just starting into a depressive funk when last chapter was almost finished and unfortunately, it showed. I think we shored some of it up this week, though.

Also, once it's been posted, that's all she wrote. It's like a newspaper. Once the edition's out, it's out. The public has already read it. We may go back a fix tiny details at times or the occasional missed typo, but once she's to bed, she's to bed. Better luck next chapter. :D

And thank you, love, for standing behind me. I really am my own worst critic sometimes. *♥*
