The last day of my first week at Primatech came with summer hours! I got to go in at 8:30 and leave at noon. This was very spiffy. Especially since it gave me plenty of time to go to Target, have lunch, take a nap, and still have afternoon time to spare! Whee!
Observations at the end of a work week, cut to spare flist since I got all wordy )
After Target, lunch two hours later than I should have eaten, whoops, and nap, I then moved on to a bit of tidying. I now have six bags worth of things to donate and will be dropping them off at Goodwill at my next opportunity.

Beyond that it is hot outside, my AC thankfully works, and at some point there will be dinner. Just as soon as I figure out what I want to eat. Woohoo!

FREEDOM!!!

I made it! I'm free! TBQ IS FREE!!!!!!!!!!!11

My final day consisted of non-stop reminders from all ends about why I wanted to leave this job. The boss was surprisingly nice though. He took me out to lunch and gave me a wallet as a going away present.

Thank you to all for the pretty nekkid icons :D And to [livejournal.com profile] bethcarielle for the lolly.

I have to admit it hasn't really sunk in yet. I suspect this is going to be something that hits me in stages. Like stage 1 will be when I show up at the new job Monday. Stages 2-infinity will be when I realize all the little ways my life is better now that I'm not carrying this stress around with me. (I believe all of you who've been listening to my work saga over the past year or so call this the "No DUH, TBQ" stage)

To answer a common question he finally hired someone today. Though this is due to what he in his own words termed "panic." Possibly because it finally sunk in for him that no, really, I'm not going to be there next week.

I never met the person he hired and there was no training period. At least, not on my part. He'll have to handle that all by himself. And since new person has to give two weeks notice that means he's got two whole weeks of flying solo. Next week he's only working Monday. The week after that he's currently scheduled to be working the usual five days but who knows how that will turn out.

Not me! I'll be elsewhere!

FREE!!!! I'M FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

LAST DAY ON THE OLD JOB EVER!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

NEKKID ICON PARTY AT MY PLACE!!!!!!!!!!

*puts on music and boogies down*
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (beer me strength)
Today is attempting to test my patience. Constantly ringing phone and fax, boss who talks for HOURS about crap I do not care about, amazingly stupid and weird questions from all corners (ex "May I speak to the doctor?" "May I ask what this is in regards to?" "I want to find out if you are accepting new patients." "Oh, I can help you with that. Yes, we are." "No, I want to ask the doctor if you're accepting new patients.")

ALSO LJ CAN START MAILING COMMENT NOTIFICATION ANY YEAR NOW, KTHX.

Mind you some of the problems here may also be due to a lowered tolerance thanks to my head being vaguely hurty thanks to the weather. After work is errands that I have to run tonight, including a doctor's appointment that I need to get in before my insurance changes on Monday.

Still - soon. Soooooon. I've already done so many things that I'll never have to do again! Only a day and a fraction left!

*clings to you all*
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (two thumbs up)
Two days! Only two days left! LAST THURSDAY ON THIS JOB EVER!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Hiro waffles)
THREE DAYS MORE!!! LAST WEDNESDAY ON THE JOB EVAH!!!!!!!

*dance dance*

Related to this, I find that I'm living my life like a fortune cookie. Only instead of "in bed" I'm adding "on a ---day" to everything. Like "This is the last time I'll make these calls, on a Wednesday" or "This is the last time I'll deal with these files, on a Wednesday."

Granted this is happening in my mind. Saying it out loud would mean I'm crazy. Moreso than usual anyway.

Also it's REALLY FREAKIN' HOT WTF???
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Free love freeway)
DAY FOUR!!! LAST TUESDAY OF WORKING THIS JOB!!! I AM THIS MUCH CLOSER TO FREEDOM, WOOOO!!!!
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (strippers)
Ahem.

*taps microphone*

FIVE DAYS LEFT ON MY OLD JOB!!! I'M ABOUT TO GO TO WORK FOR MY LAST MONDAY EVER! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Joanie w/ tea)
LJ can stop sucking with the comment notification any day now, really.

Today marks my second to last Friday. I believe the phrase is "WHEEEEEE!!!"

To answer the question of why I do not nap at work, it is not fear of being fired, it is the annoying ringing sound the phone keeps making coupled with people who keep walking into the office. Otherwise oh yeah, naps-a-plenty.

Tonight going to try (operative word: try) to get a pedicure. Tomorrow is haircut. I feel that there were other things that I was going to be doing but darned if I remember them. Ah well.

Hi! =)
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Seasonal)
First day of summer! This is a happy thing for those of you who like warm weather! I love you in spite of how you are TOTALLY FREAKISH AND WRONG!

:D

Been busy. I bought some new clothes yesterday to help me over the hump of having burned through all my office-appropriate stuff during the five billion interviews. This way I have enough mix and matchy nice things to get me through the first week, and after that I can suppliment as needed once I get the hang of what they define as business casual.

Also having to book a few thousand appointments as some of my doctors don't take my new insurance, so I'm trying to get myself to a point of having a month or two where I don't need to worry about tests or meds or what have you. I will admit that some doctors I shall not be sorry to get rid of, as I was mostly waiting for new ins to kick in so it could be a clean break all around.

I know my hours! At least for now! 8:30-5:30! Half an hour earlier than my usual right now, but OTOH I won't need to get up much earlier and plus I get out a wee bit earlier! This shall be helpful, esp. for my multiple trips to Trader Joe's as I hit it on the way home from work.

Current boss continues to be an annoying moron who gives every impression of not thinking my leaving is a big deal or even significant event. I am so feeling the love, really.

Saturday? New haircut!

Now I resume wishing I could nap at the office.

Old Boss:

* Still has shown no real reaction to me leaving
* When I listed the things that I was writing down to help my replacement know what to do (9 pages and counting, so far), dismissed it as "not that important."

New Boss:

* Emailed me today to see how I was doing
* Asked if there was anything he could do to help ease my transition

So... yeah. Very much looking forward to the new job.
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (fucking wonderment)
Last night I went to bed at 9:30. NINE THIRTY. Stupid migraine.

On the upside it would appear that I'm headache free now, which is good because tonight my knitting group is having a picnic while we watch a little outdoor Shakespeare. No clue how we'll knit when it gets dark, but hey! Picnic and Shakespeare and at least the possibility of knitting.

Over in my work life my boss has asked that I write out instructions for the person who replaces me. As I do so much more than he gives me credit for I suspect this is going to be a lot longer than he's expecting. Anyway, if I'm slow to reply on emails and tags and such, that would be why.

And since some folks asked - I haven't posted the details of the new job yet b/c these posts have been public and I'm leery of giving out specific information. But once I get half a sec I'll do a general post. And also decide what sooper sekrit code name to use for the company. (Though I suspect I already know which one it'll be.)
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (confused)
So I gave my notice.

The conversation went something like this )
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Dexter orly?)
So today is the day I give my two weeks notice. I'm planning on going in a wee bit early since my boss is usually there early on Mondays and that way we can rip this bandaid off in private and before the day begins. I figure I'm just going to be matter of fact about it, keep anything personal out of it, and whatever he does is whatever he does.

New company (...I should figure out a name for that) has been spiffy so far. The HR person I've been dealing with has been very nice about answering all my n00b questions. Plus she sent over PDFs to explain my benefits. Health ins and such will be starting day one of me being there. Vacation and all that will kick in after I've been working there for a while, which is to be expected.

I haven't been sleeping well these past couple of days due to my mind being occupied with everything that needs to get done. Caffeine shall be my co-pilot today, methinks.

Note to self: Grinning like a loon and occaisionally boogieing down while at the office might be a giveaway to the boss that Something Is Up.

Ahem.
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (strippers)
SCREW FLOCKING THIS!

I GOT THE JOB OFFER!

I GOT THE JOB OFFER WITH A PROPOSED SALARY OF $8,000 MORE PER YEAR THAN I'M MAKING NOW!!!!!!!!!

PARTY AT MY HOUSE, BABY!!!!!!!!!!!
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (beer me strength)
Today is trying to kill me.

Tonight? For dinner? Carbs. *nodnod*
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (woman knitting)
Started out this morning with a mild headache. This only got worse when I got to work and the internet was down. Luckily I was able to futz with it and get it up and working again. *clings to internets liek woah*

Clouds rolled in just in time to DUMP rain right as I left work for the day. I got fairly soaked which was fun considering my uniform includes white pants. But I don't mind rain and it was big and wet and warm, so kinda fun.

Hit the store for some groceries, then headed on down to Stitch n Bitch. We're at a new location now and it's marvey. It's a little cafe that just opened downtown. It serves sandwiches and such and has a small alcove with comfy chairs so we can sit and eat and knit and not be in the way of the in and out crowds (and vice versa). The owner's thrilled to have us, so hopefully this relationship can continue.

I ducked out early to hit The Body Shop before it closed. Also Hallmark NOT THAT I FORGOT WHAT THIS SUNDAY IS OR ANYTHING. (Father's Day, for those needing the reminder.)

After that it was home to snuggle with the kitties and catch up on email.

Which pretty much covers it. All that's left to add is that [livejournal.com profile] silverthoughts is a pimp and an enabler and any other purchases I may have made today are NOT MY FAULT. So there.

ZOMG!!!

There is a weetiny child here who is so agressively adorable I am tempted to club her parents just so I can steal her away.

Unrelated to this, last night I had a nightmare about being chased by an 800 pound gorilla. I can't tell if the worst part of the dream was the actual chasing, or that whenever I went up to someone to ask for help the conversation would be:

Them: "Well the thing about an 800 pound gorilla is that it can go pretty much wherever it wa - "

Me: "YES, I KNOW. IT WASN'T FUNNY THE FIRST TIME EITHER."
