blame pistol

I'm going to kill somebody

Either Problem Child #1 or his admin.

You may remember, I'm not even supposed to deal with Problem Child #1, because he thinks I'm incompetent, but his admin likes me basically because I'll roll over and do anything she wants, whereas Kathy exhibits more of a spine and actually says "no" sometimes. Also, Kathy was at lunch and the Admin was not willing to wait.

Anyway, since 9:30AM this morning, we've researched hotel in El Centro, started booking it and then stopped when she realized there was a logistical problem. Then she called back and we booked a two rooms in Anaheim. She insisted I book the more expensive room so they would guaranteed king beds. I told her they were inside cancellation and that I was guaranteeing to Problem Child #1's credit card. She said fine.

Less than five minutes later, she called back and said to cancel the hotel in Anaheim and put them at the Omni in LA. I called the hotel in Anaheim and groveled my way into waivers for both of them. I HATE HAVING TO DO THAT!

Another ten minutes later, she called and said Problem Child #1 had changed his mind again. Cancel the Omni. We're also inside cancellation at the Omni, so I have to call there and get waivers.

Now she wants me to call the W in Westwood and make changes to existing reservations that we didn't even make.

I've got next week off and right now I fell like I'm hanging on by a thread before I totally snap and tell someone to fuck off. Steve promises that if I do kill someone he will testify that it was completely justifiable homocide.

ETA-Got the waivers at the Omni. Waiting for a call from Westwood, and now I have do a bunch of convoluted limo bookings.

My job sucks, but my f-list rocks! Puppy - Love, rambling and babbling.

Go share the puppy love!


I'm very torn about whether I want to download either the new episodes of Ashes to Ashes or John Barrowman's new show. Obviously I want to see both, but I'm trying to be good about NOT getting the laptop all clogged up again. I guess the Barrowmania is in abeyance due to my feelings about Ego-fest and how much of Alex Drake am I willing to put up with to get my dose of the Gene Genie?


I don't have much to say about Aliens vs Monsters....Collapse )

Heat wave is now in it's third day. I'm carrying my leather jacket because I KNOW the fog could come in at any time and I don't want to be caught freezing when it happens.

Prompt #110

I just don't know what to do with my time
I'm so lonesome for you it's a crime
Going to the movie only makes me sad
Parties make me feel as bad
When I'm not with you
I just don't know what to do
