So I had this awesome job, right? ::LOUD BUZZER SOUND::  
In other news George and Fred are doing AMAZING. George (the younger) got a really awesome therapist and is even taking college classes now! Fred is talking to GIRLS and feeling confident in himself.

My step-brother is getting married on May 17th. Damon* and I will be in the Bay Area for the event.



Apparently I am not so much with the awesome job having anymore. I lost my job last week. ::SUCK:: Let me essplain to you exactly how this girl "lost" (WHERE ARE MY KEYS!!) her job...

My boyfriend, Damon*, had cranial decompression (brain) surgery on March 2nd. I took that week and the following Monday off of work to help him out. When I went back to work on Tuesday the 10th, I was Terminated and escorted from the office by 11:00.

So like... a whole month in advance I submitted some vacation days and they were approved. Upon returning from said vacation days I was axed. FOR NO GOOD REASON. There were no company cut backs. No tightening of the belts We Can't Afford IT Anymore. Nope. The NY office has just been systematically removing things from the CA office that were too antithetical to a NY Attitude. And apparently *I* am antithetical to a NY 'Tude.

Which is totally true. I'm bright, friendly, speak slowly and clearly so that the listener can understand me, oh and I genuinely LIKE and am exceedingly FRIENDLY with ALL of my co-workers/users. Not that NY peeps are all assholes, but I sometimes even nauseate my fellow Californians with my bright, sunny and perky disposition. Shame on ME!

\/\/ (whatever hands)

So I went back to Damon's house promptly picked up where I'd left off the night before, taking care of Damon while he recovers from BRAIN SURGERY. Damon was treated for his Chiari Malformation, learn here. He's doing AMAZING. In part because I'm an awesome care giver. No, really. I skeered a nurse. And am officially in charge of a six foot 220lbs Grown Ass Man until April 1st, when we will evaluate his ability to self-care and NOT over-flipping-do-it.

These days there's nothing shinier than: putting your tiny 5'3 self in front of a 6'0 tall man, slapping your hand onto his chest and calmly telling him to Stop and put the pliers down and he does. He actually goes limp and relaxed and sits on the couch like a schooled little boy. And if he's been very good and relaxing a lot he gets blow jobs and sex. Because we believe in positive reinforcement and we totally loves our Damon.

IZZIE WON THE EMMY?!! WHAT THE FUCK?  
When Izzie won the emmy my brain did this:

Not the older woman who yelled at Tony Soprano like ALL THE TIME.

Not the large woman.

Not the round black woman.

And certainly not the Chinese woman.

It was the tall young blonde woman who cries pathetically that won an emmy?

Riiiiiiight. Because that makes sense. TO LOOKIST RACIST TOOLS!



In other news. I'd like to show you an e-mail exchange between me and my geek boss, which was sent across the whole of our IT department - minus the tool who's quitting (so really just the 4 of us!). Oh and this is VERBATIM:

fashes: I found this utility (see attachment) through digg.com and I've been using it for a little over a year. It rocks.
Geek Boss: Hacker Alert! Run!
fashes: Yes, yes. I just hacked into a user's machine to stare at his event logs! OH THE HORROR!!

...



My job is SO made of WIN!! And the HR lady wants us (the new gals) to start exploring local restaurants! And I think the hot latina I lust in the general direction of was flirting with me today.

Maybe. ::tiny fist pump::

Firefox is TOTALLY FIRED!!!  
So I use ::counts:: four browsers at any given time. Opera 9 for *everything*, Flock for Gmail w/chat (which Opera can't do yet), Sea Monkey for all the other e-mail accounts that I have and Firefox for all work related stuff. Job hunting, job e-mail, client research, etc. The reason I used Firefox at all was b'c it was the only browser I didn't use my HTML/Proxy program Proxomitron with. And I, of course, didn't install any extensions/add-ons b'c Firefox always fails when I do.

Okay so you have back story. Now here's the travesty. No, no. Actually... here's more back story.

I have a black Macbook. Sexy isn't it? And of course I run windows on it with a program called Parallels. Giant geek that I am. And the latest update to Parallels crashes Windows ALL THE TIME! And occasionally it crashes the whole Mac! Okay, I think that's enough back story.

The other day Parallels crashed. Just.... ::POOF:: So I restarted Parallels la la la. Opened Opera, Flock, Semagic, Trillian, GTalk (well okay some of those open automatically everytime I log into Windows, but still), and then I open Firefox. No home page. No bookmarks in the toolbar. No bookmarks at ALL! And my sessions are gone! Just.... I HAD SHIT SAVED THERE!! GONE!

::POOF::

No extensions, add-ons or plugins. NOTHING!!!

I'd feel betrayed but... it's Firefox. ::shrug::

But I still need a fourth browser with tabs. ::sigh::

ETA: Internet Explorer 7 does NOT count! TCH!!

ETA the two: AHAHAHA!!! It's like CANDY!!! WHICH ONE DO I CHOOSE!! WHICH ONE DO I CHOOOOOOSE!!!!

ETA the three: Review!

::seeeeeeethes:: I'm deep breathing. *From* my diaphragm. And I'm enunciating in my head.  
These are not good signs. Even Elvis isn't helping right now.

I hate incompetence. I hate willful incompetence. And DD's not new webhost? CAN NOT SPELL TO SAVE THEIR LIVES!! Which are the circumstances they're under right now. DD's website is www.namefg.com - which stands for Name Financial Group. What the webhost has listed under the Admin panel - where *I* go to set up e-mail address and FTP stuff is www.namefq.com. Which means that when I try to access certain parts of the site through the Admin panel THEY LINKS ARE BROKEN AND USELESS.

EFF MOTHER FUCKING QUEUE!!!!!!

I asked Dickwad (yes, yes that's his name now) to fix that THREE WEEKS AGO. HE EVEN E-MAILED ME THAT ALL WAS GOOD!!

I wanted to punch him in the face *last* time. DD told me to call him and I *looked* at her and told her I'd e-mail him. She saw my face and was all, "Ohhh, right. You can't be polite to him right now can you?"
"No. No, I really can't."

So I'm e-mailing the Dickwad. Last time I spoke to him I hung up on him. B'c he was all, "We all make mistakes. Are you saying that you're perfect?"

Yeah, bitches. It was like THAT! Dickwad didn't even *apologize* for the fuck up! WTF!!

::breathes, plays Depeche Mode, imagines Dean running around in her head::


ETA I OMG!!! The Dickwad is OUT OF THE OFFICE!!! And his minions won't touch his shit! Oh they will today god dammit.

ETA II So i talked to Fuckwit, Dickwad's sub, and she's all, "He wouldn't leave it like that..."

Did you just call your customer a liar? TO THEIR FACE? GAAAHH!!! She's all, "I don't know where you're logging into.
"Neither do I can you send me that information so we're on the same page?"
"Blah blah arguging Dickwould IS SO AWESOME OMG!!!"
"It's clearly not working on my end."
"Do you want me to send you the login info?"
"OMG I JUST SAID THAT LIKE THREE FUCKING TIMES ALREADY!!!"

So now I'm e-mailing them WITH COLOR CODED SCREENCAPS AND INSTRUCTIONS. So All Is Clear.

Yes I'll be posting the screencap when I'm done. *G*

digg.com is so very good to me and a confession  
I'm known for not really being up to date on daily news. I figure if there's something important going on in the world my people would tell me. But I check digg almost everyday. Oh god it's so shiny. Here are just a few things from today:
Shoot down a crash test dummy over the internet
What Search Engine Spiders See
How-To: Add USB power to your alarm clock
Picasa Web Album launched
[livejournal.com profile] tigress35! Check this out: The best Mac freeware
and there's always some cool space thing: A Meteoroid Hits the Moon



A Confession

I hate Firefox.

No, seriously. Hate. Firefox. It's fugly, the logo is stupid. There's no skinLESS Just Use Windows Colors version. I still primarily use IE to browse the internet and Opera (with tabs) for LJ. I *break* Firefox everytime I use it. I PWN the extensions. They KNEEL. But I don't really like IE either. It's fugly and stoopid - and so very tabless (blah blah never ever installing a daily tracker just to get tabbed browsing in IE 7 cakes.)

Today digg gave me Flock. Some of the shiner native features:
Drag and drop photo hosting.
tagged bookmarks that can sync with del.icio.us and other bookmark places.
LJ blogging tools
RSS and custom news feed building

I mean I'm at work and haven't even installed the thing yet. But soooo pretty. *wants*
