Too many notes.



I don't like being off Tues/Wed. It blows to come back on Thursday when most people are salivating at the thought of Friday. The chick who wanted my days off doesn't want them anymore because she traded with someone who had *Sunday* off. Shah. Fine, didn't want your stupid days off anymore anyway. The people with the best sense of humor seem to be off Thurs/Fri, making those days take just a *little* bit longer to go by.

They let other people who are brand new to the cookie factory watch me make cookies, which I find vaguely alarming. I barely know what I'm doing for Christ's sake. I got to watch a supervisor do their little cookie duties (I was just supposed to watch him make "general" cookies and I said fuck you, make complex "supervisor-type" cookies and I'm afraid my wanting to be entertained may have been mistaken as enthusiam for being promoted. I'm not sure where I sit on this pony ride: more money is nice but do I really want to deal with more assholes than necessary?), but in any case it was mostly just a glimpse into the dark side.

Anyhoo. On far more relevant news, moved onto the second Potter. Jesus I hate fucking Dobby. Those goddamn elves are totally the Jar Jar of the Potter series.

And yes, we have survived the recent downpours. I got to see what the backyard looks like flooded. I planted seeds last week, but I presume I'll still be seeing sunflowers in the middle of the yard and cilantro at the opposite end from where I originally planted it. Fun: weed or herb?

*looks around*

I haven't dared admitted this to anyone...I HATE the elves. Everyone loves them to tears and goes on about them. I do kinda find it funny Hermione was making hats and Dobby was wearing all of them, but that was more laughing at her about it. They really could go completely and I'd be just fine with that.

But Dobby just wants to warn nice Harry Potter, yes he does...mustn't let any harm come to nice Harry Potter, must keep him safe. *goes away to beat up on himself*

Is Dobby the poor man's Gollum, or is it just me?

(And by "poor man's Gollum," I of course mean "insufferable dickweed.")

Vel: It's been nagging at me for some time, I just the fuckers.

Blanco: Supervisor cookies are dangerous.

Tri: who are these crazy people who love them? I always get so bored when they enter into the story...esp when Hermione goes on about "saving them." I'm sure they serve the story...grumbles...

CSJ: lol, I think "insufferable dickweed," sums it up nicely! I guess something in the story had to be annoying...

It's totally bizarre but I know several people that just think the elves are the best thing ever. And they hated Jar Jar so I can't say their tastes are totally without merit. But I usually have to stop talking when they get on about the elves for fear I'll just say something totally inappropriate.

And honestly, it's just a little creepy how Dobby beats himself up.

That is so weird...people liking the elves...they always seemed like the weakest link to me...

Haha! It is creepy, now that you mention it. That, mixed with his creepy little voice...
