janegodzilla: (GOD I'M COLD)
Sweet fancy Moses, it's cold out today! Apparently, the snow level is going to drop (or has dropped, I'm not sure) to about five hundred feet, and in spite of my scarf, greatcoat and arm-warmers, I was still shivering by the time I reached the office this morning. We're only a few days away from April! This is bullshit!

On the plus side, there's cake remaining in the fridge and it's looking pretty good as a breakfast option, my workload is still pleasantly light -- not in an "oh god, I might get fired" way, but in a "most of the attorneys are still gone and the ones left don't want to work either" way -- and Nate continues to be one of my favorite people in the whole wide world. So, you know. Those things are always good.

Also, I started the second book in the Monster Island series, and it's already shaping up to be better than its predecessor. The Dark Tower series is like that for me as well -- I'm apathetic about the first book to the point of dislike, even though it's so essential for the rest of the series, but every other book is just so incredible that I can overlook the faults of the first. I'm hoping these zombie books with be similar, because hot diggity damn, I sure love me some zombies. ♥

As much as I complain about my job, sometimes I can't help but love it a little. A goodly number of the attorneys and staff are gone this week on account of spring break, and so things have been almost painfully slow. Seriously, none of us are getting any work done whatsoever.

The head partner's solution to this? Throw a party! At 3:30 in the afternoon! With sushi and alcohol and cake! He doesn't need a reason why. It's his goddamn firm, that's why! It's spring and it's a Wednesday and he wants some fucking cake and sushi!

I wish I could say I was paraphrasing, but I'm really not. My boss is a crazy man.

It should be noted that the only reason we're waiting until 3:30 is because the office manager objected to the idea of alcohol at 3:00. We don't actually close until 5:30, so I'm all kinds of amused by this. I'm not crazy about sushi, but I am all about the idea of booze and cake, so today is definitely shaping up to be a good one. Also, this cracked me up:

Today's turning out to be a pretty good day. It's cake day, for one thing. I fucking love cake day, because the cake on cake day is free, and free cake -- especially free and delicious cake -- trumps just about everything. Mmm. Cake.

Also, I'm going over to Nate's tonight to watch the first Hellraiser movie, and while I still can't figure out if this is technically a date (I couldn't really figure out if Saturday was either), I'm sticking to my prior assertion that I'd be happy with him as a friend and not necessarily anything more. I'd PREFER the something more, true, but we'll see how it goes. As per usual, I'm excited and anxious to the point of vague nausea, although I get anxious to the point of vague nausea over plenty of non-date-related things as well and I can only hope it's something I'll grow out of eventually.

On the "not so great" front, I just found out I'm going to have to sink another two hundred dollars into my car. The dash lights and electrical systems have gone a little wonky, so...bye-bye, two hundred dollars. *sigh* It would be nine hundred if I fixed the stuff currently wrong with the transmission, but they said I might still get another two years out of her if I decided to leave things the way they were, so that's what I'm going with. She's sixteen years old -- at this point, I don't think repairing the transmission is going to do much good when everything else is falling apart.

Still, it kind of sucks. My family's owned this car since new, and I've definitely developed a soft spot for her. Also, I can't afford to buy a new one, so it's no more car for me when she finally does decide to call it quits.
