Tumblr, Amuse Me

Long story short, I got punched by a homeless guy (don’t worry the cops got him) and now I’m waiting in the ER for them to determine whether or not anything is actually broken (it’s not) before they push my incisors back into place.

I’M FINE (my husband is here and I’m at the best trauma…

Oh jeez. Hell of a way to find you on Tumblr (this is the lapsed fic writer formerly known as lazyartisan- hi!). How can I make sharkflip’s day better. Hmmm.

I can tell you about the shop kitty?  He’s supposed to keep mice away, but really he’s just there to be a love bug and make the customers all gooey. He’s gigantic, about the size of a raccoon, and covered in three inches of fluffy black fur. Sometimes he doesn’t realize he isn’t kitten sized and tries to walk between things on the counter but doesn’t fit. Sometimes he tries to sit on the keyboard while I’m working, and sometimes he does sit on top of the papers I need to do that work, and then when I lean over to push him away he licks my face. And we frequently find him napping in boxes, even though most of the time he’s too big to actually fit and sort of oozes over the sides. 

SHOP KITTY!!! One of the reasons I’ve been planning to move on from my job in the next few years — and I love my job, so it’s not that I want to quit — is that one of the prospects lining up for me is to manage/buy for a small local store, and I could bring my dog to work with me. It seems like a really trivial thing to make a decision around, but it’s also kind of not. Because shop critters are just awesome.

Face update: just got home from the ER. Teeth are back into position and held in place by a splint that’s like temporary braces that just go from eyetooth to eyetooth. Turns out that my maxilla is fractured (like, the area around the tooth sockets; makes sense), but nothing started hurting until everything was back in place. Everyone who’s had braces knows how that feels — your teeth suddenly pushing on each other.

Anyway, that started to hurt, and we waited in the ER like FOREVER before being discharged, and then had to wait for my prescription to be filled, but now I have valium and oxy-something and am feeling much better (though still kind of shitty). I also had a milkshake and now I’m having soup and my dog has hugged me without punching me, so things are better. Going to acupuncture tomorrow, and back to the maxillar-facial people next week, and not going to work for a bit, SO THERE.

I did get all weepy again when I called my parents, and the thought of figuring out how to fix this problem (vagrants needing to not loiter at our facility, without me getting punched in the face again) is very stressful, but I’m doing pretty good all considered. I’ll probably go back to my therapist for a session or two (haven’t needed to see her for a while), and then to my orthodontist and dentist, and do all these grown up chores I’ve been neglecting for a while.

Anyway. <3 to my virtual peeps. We don’t talk that much, but thanks for letting me know you’re there.

What the ever loving fuck, homeless guy! I hear you on tooth related injuries being nightmare fuel. 

As for recs and stuff… I’d highly recomment anything in my bookmarks page here http://archiveofourown.org/users/AvocadoLove/bookmarks Though you may want to ignore the more angsty ones.

What are you in the mood for, bb? I can find something?

I want Alta/Pern AUs, for which you are exclusively to blame.

And yeah, I tell homeless guys to not sleep in my facility all the time, but this is the first time they’ve escalated it to that level. Dude was crazy, though.

I’M FINE (my husband is here and I’m at the best trauma hospital in five states and nothing actually hurts, I have health insurance and this is actually a work-related injury). But damage to my teeth like this is my own personal worse case nightmare fuel and I could really use a distraction — especially since I’m not facebooking this to avoid freaking out the parents.

So. Tell me stories? Drabble fix for me? Link fluffy pictures of retriever puppies?

austenchanted:

me too, Emma. me too.

Meanwhile, I am the other lady. 

Except I’m not smiling because I just spent fourteen hours reconciling a year’s worth of compounded errors in a someone else’s program budget.

*sigh*

This is probably just payback for being just a tad smug that I am always the first to turn in my monthly financials — I get asked to fix other people’s systems to that they work as well as mine.

On a related note, our interim Finance Director asked if I wanted a job as an accountant, because I do way better work than the two accounting temps she has right now. Very flattering, but I did not get a Master’s in an obscure, low-paying, and extremely satisfying field to become an accountant.

Yet.

when you are going to be an aunt, the babies are everywhere and they are real 

ITS SO TRUE. I got news that I’m going to be an aunt like three days ago, and BABIES.

You’re a watcher.

I really, really wanted to like this movie, and really did, until the plot hinged on suddenly Nick becoming a tactical mastermind, which I just couldn’t buy.

 personally I hate twilight but this one character is a legend.

I am Charlie

I would legit watch a movie that stars Charlie and Jacob’s dad doing their things and going fishing and eye-rolling constantly over their angsty teens’ antics. 

Even So, by Bea

A++ Zutara fic. 10/10, would read again. Features language play and subversion of tropes: my favorites!

Blue Sargent & Richard Campbell Gansey III + visions

He leaned across the gearshift toward her, pressing fingers to the place her collarbone was exposed. His breath was hot on her neck.
Gansey, she warned, but she felt unstable and dangerous.
I just want to pretend, Gansey said, the words misting on her skin. I want to pretend that I could.
The Blue in the vision closed her eyes.
Maybe it wouldn’t hurt if I kiss you, he said. Maybe it’s only if you kiss me—

It’ll be okay, Gansey told the other Blue. She could tell that he was afraid. It’ll be okay.
Impossibly, Blue realized that this other Blue was crying because she loved Gansey. And that the reason Gansey touched her like that, his fingers so careful with her, was because he knew that her kiss could kill him. She could feel how badly the other Blue wanted to kiss him, even as she dreaded it.
Okay. I’m ready—Gansey’s voice caught, just a little. Blue, kiss me.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH RAVEN CYCLE AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH BRB DYING SO MUCH <3<3<3

Tumblr, I’m still sick, and i’m doing end-of-month inventory reconciliation by remote because my database only gives me snapshot inventory valuation and I have to pull all my reports in the next 12 hours before we open in a new month, but I don’t know which of my orders have arrived because I’ve…

ugh, that sounds like a bunch of suck EVEN without being sick. My sympathies to you. I’m pretty much farting around in the Avengers fandom nowadays, but if you want recs I can give you some awesome ones for that. Until then:

A++ sympathy gif. <3

The inventory reconciliation is usually fine — it’s like a puzzle played with excel spreadsheets. It’s just a lot easier to do when you can, you know, see the shipment.
