Oh, ffs....



I mean, I don't know where I want to start over from, but there is a time period back a ways that could have prevented this, I'm sure.

By this, I mean, I have what appears to be a cozy meeting with my supervisor. For an hour this afternoon. For no particular reason, she says brightly, which is kind of like saying the check's in the mail and is, in fact, a total lie.

Also of note, because this Friday utterly sucks and I want to record this for posterity:

1.) I have an egg mcmuffin. This is my favorite food. And just looking at the bag is making me vaguely ill.

2.) I am freezing and wrapped in a blanket at work. It's an ugly blanket. I can't work out which part of this bothers me more.

3.) Did I mention cozy chat with supervisor? Does she not know the economy is in shambles and cozy chats can easily be seen as death sentences?

4.) Someone came in and moved things around on my desk around and untaped my phone number list. It--disturbing. I think they were cleaning, but I am completely special snowflake on my desk things being moved. I don't even like people breathing too close to it. Also, there's porn-like fanfic here that I forgot to take with me or shred. And perhaps, someone named Seperis may have wrote it. Yeah.

5.) See 3.

6.) Received actual lab results for thyroid, TSH test thingamabob. I don't really know what a thirteen means when the normal range is like, .67 to 3.75 (ish), but going to assume that borderline I was not. I just am mystified that this could have happened in two years or the hospital missed this two times. I am sorry, if you are growing samples of my lung tissue looking for legionaires or whatever and getting all excited about new and exciting ways to describe "It's like pneumonia. Except strangely not. THIS IS VERY EXCITING FOR US DOCTORS! Why is that pillow aimed at our collective heads?" and taking some kind of weird glee in draining me of blood on a daily basis while I cling to an oxygen mask and get a very pitiful kind of high (Later, I discovered it wasn't high; I'd just forgotten what normal oxygen saturation should feel like), there is no good reason not to toss in a thyroid blood test.

7.) See 3 again.

8.) I went to bed a little late--and got up at like, two forty-five AM and fell back asleep exactly one hour and fifteen minutes before I had to get up and go to work. There are no upsides to this, with the possible exception I did get the opportunity to rewatch Arthur killing people like, six times. Christ. He just has no bad angles, does he?

9.) I'll leave this blank for the next thing to go wrong. I am just feeling that doomed.

10.) Seriously. Have you seen his back? And that way he seems to not own a single shirt that is laced up correctly? Actually, he reminds me vaguely of Peter in Prince Caspian, but without the blank horror of feeling I am getting awfully close to Ms Robinson.

11.) I'm leaving this blank too, as I'm sure I will need it.

...yeah, that's it. Sadly.

*winces* Bad professor. that would totally freak me out.

And 2 - HEEE. Oh~! I read!~ Sorry, I was sulky last night, I'llemail for squee tonight!

*thoughtfully* I guess, as his manservant we can blame Merlin for that.
Or should I say thank?
;)

*hugs*

Let Merlin reach new vistas of incompetence so that perhaps all of his clothes may accidentally come unlaced, yes?

Re: #3 - ugh, that's the worst. I've had to tell my boss a million times that "come on in and close the door" is OMGLawDork code for "you are so fired." He doesn't understand this, and never gets why I freak out every time he does it. I wish you the best of luck.

(also, hey, at least you got to watch Arthur kill stuff. He really is ridiculously attractive, OMG. It's his shoulders that get me. No. Bad. Angles.)

GAh, yes. this. My second to last boss did that too.

I realized something had gone dreadfully wrong when I was leaning over staring at his chainmail. Chain mail should not be sexy. Yet there you go. Doomed.

#3. This is like when my dad leaves me an IM that says "call me" or "we need to talk". I have lectured him MANY TIMES why this gives his daughter heart attacks to no avail.

See, I know this is going to go badly. I'm just nto sure how much.

I rose to new levels of squee during Valiant. It had my favorite things. Well done blade fighting and DIRTY fighting at that. Just the way i like it, and the first shots of Arthur in chainmail and surcoat. Which does not cease to be hot at all, raaawr. I've had a lifelong love of men and swords. This show gives it all to me, along with well done enough fighting to make sure i'm not sitting there laughing at badly staged blade work. The snark and the pretty is a bonus to me, but eeeeh. I was cheering right along with Merlin when Arthur was kicking ass in the tournament. ^_^;;

I also love how seriously gorgeous Bradley James is with 'bad teeth' by american standards. It all adds to that look he has and its all just full of hawt.

I'm pretty sure my favorite Shallow Arthur Watch moment is that bit in The Gates of Avalon where he dives and rolls underneath the ... monster, and then spins his sword and then kills yet. (descriptions of real fight scenes are clearly my strong point.)

ANYWAY. SPINNY WRIST AND FOREARMS. Just to give you delightful mental images to combat your Crazy Day.

...oh God yes. That. Just. *breathes*

I need a moment.

I did get the opportunity to rewatch Arthur killing people like, six times. Christ. He just has no bad angles, does he?

Competence kink for the win, y/y? He's just... well, really good at his job. The fact that his job frequently involves perforating things with extreme prejudice does not at all detract from the hotness factor.

Open shirts, chain mail, and sarcasm. There is no bad here. *g*

You may already have googled this, but TSH stands for Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. (A handy explanation can be found here. Basically, TSH tells your thyroid to get to work. If your thyroid is underactive, your pituitary gland produces more TSH to remind your thyroid to do its job already. Consequently a higher TSH generally means an underactive thyroid, and a low TSH means an overactive thyroid. As for why you weren't diagnosed earlier -- I don't think it's usually included in typical bloodwork. My family is rife with thyroid problems, and my underactive thyroid wasn't diagnosed until I went to the doctor and said "My skin is dry, my fingernails are shattering, and I want to sleep 12 hours a day. Please take my blood." Long story short, I hope you start to feel better soon....

1.) I have an egg mcmuffin. This is my favorite food. And just looking at the bag is making me vaguely ill.

Hopefully this will improve with the thyroid meds. And hopefully casual chat with supervisor is really just a casual chat with supervisor. About your awesomeness.

3.) Did I mention cozy chat with supervisor?

It might be good - the last time that happened to me, I got all stressed and it turned out they were just letting me know that my pay rise was larger than I thought because HR gave me the wrong letter to start with.

Have you seen his back? And that way he seems to not own a single shirt that is laced up correctly?

Mmm, shoulders. And the open shirts let that nice pendant thingy be seen, and also the occasional bit of chest hair...

...sorry, I was off somewhere else there.

Also, armour is completely sexy, as is insane competence.

Augh, I hope the cozy chat turns out to be nothing.

Actually, he reminds me vaguely of Peter in Prince Caspian

Us Narnia fans have been aware of this for months now. *grins*

Yeah, the resemblance between Bradley James and William Moseley is really disturbing and I mostly try to ignore it. (I spent most of Caspian trying to figure out who to look at because my GOD there was a lot of inappropriate pretty in there. I felt worst about Skandar Keynes (Edmund) but I didn't exactly feel a lack of guilt re: Moseley or Popplewell (Susan). Which is why mostly I stared at Barnes (Caspian) a lot because at least he's not embarassingly younger than me. In fact, he's older! THANK GOD.)

The other day the Most Incompetent Admin Ever came running around to all the offices telling us that Big Boss wanted to see us all right then in the conference room. We all gather and Big Boss is sitting there looking somber. He waits just long enough for us to be convinced we're all getting laid off before announcing something totally irrelevant.

I really wanted to throw things at him that day.
