A day without a post? *gasp!*

Still at work. No matter that it's New Year's Eve, we don't get to leave early. Roads were sadly empty this morning (if I have to go to work and suffer, everyone else should have to, too!). Despite us never getting a single bonus or raise here in three years, I'm still grumping that we get no bonus this year. Spent the morning recalling how even sucky high school temp jobs gave bonuses or *good* holiday gifts. Wondered how the hell this company retains its 200+ employees. Recalled the economy. Oh, right.

All I want to do is go home and watch stuff, but I really don't have much waiting for me to watch... X-TV, Trigun, Escaflowne... I need to find some new series to download. (I thought there was something after Whistle! that I was planning on watching, but now I don't recall what.)

I looked at the Someday's Dreamers BT stats this morning, and grrr'ed. 16 people trying to get it, not one of them uploading at more than 2 Kb/sec. Most of them at 0, a couple at 1. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over? Do people not understand how BT works? You have to *share*. Everyone uploads and everyone downloads, don't be a damned leech.

Grump, grump, grump. Seeing how some of us havn't been reviewed here at work since we were hired (like me! three years without one!), we were supposed to get one by Thanksgiving. That didn't happen, so we were supposed to get one by the end of December. Guess what? Hasn't happened!

Hm, this wasn't really supposed to be a grump-filled post. I guess talking about work was a bad idea. Let's list some good things!

* Went to the fruit stand at lunchtime. Got fruit and nuts for the weekend. I like fruit, but I never have any at home, so buying some is an accomplishment.
* Been sleeping well at night, really really well. Like out cold until the alarm goes off. This is odd but cool.
* Four day weekend coming up. Yay!
* Tire hasn't gone flat again, and despite the shop's losing of my tire (!!!), it seems to match the others currently on my car.
* TeniPuri fanfic makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. The latest one was Beware the Juice, which almost exactly matches my icon! (I'm still new enough to the fandom to not know if Inui's juice making them all fall into bed together is a giant fandom cliche. I suspect it is, but I'm just seeing it for the first time now.)

Kay. Guess that's enough. Happy New Year's Eve, folks!

Silly people...

It's still two and a half hours till midnight here, but people are out honking and making noise already. I can only hope they're doing it early because they're going to sleep soon. Hee. :)

I don't believe in making resolutions on New Year's; ever since I was a kid, I didn't see the logic in it. Why on New Year's? If you want to make a change, you should start when you decide you need that change... or just ignore it on New Year's like you ignore it every other day. (Note: the "you" in this means "me", but using I/me made it sound odd.)

Since I'm "slacking" and not watching any anime tonight (don't ask me why that feels like slacking), I'm idly watching TV. West Wing actually looks like a pretty good show. I might have to track it down and watch it again in the future. I really like this... Martin? Charlie? Sheen fellow. He was in American President, which is my favorite girly-girly movie ever.

resonant8 wrote a nice little thing about weight loss/body feelings here. It's short but beautiful, worth checking out if you ever felt like you needed to lose weight. If I were the type to make resolutions, I'd resolve to try to follow that.

I'm really happy with how the Whistle BT project is going. It's up at suprnova.org and anime.mircx.com, as well as a private anime downloading board, and there are currently 70 people downloading it! The number of people jumping on increases by one every couple minutes, so this is especially nice. I'm really, really happy that so many new people are going to be exposed to it; hopefully lots of new fans will appear!

I doubt I'll post again tonight, so Happy New Year to everyone!
