Well, it's been a long week. I was home sick on Monday. But at least I have FMLA now, so they can't fire me for missing work when I get sick. Went and had my blood work done today, as I suspected, my ESR (inflammation and a couple of other things) came back really, really high.
Not as high as it was back in December last year, but still pretty damn high. I've been battling random pain all week.
I found out that they're expecting us to start taking calls staring in November. Only three hours a day, but it still means I can expect once or twice a day to hear either of the following two questions: "What's wrong with your voice?" or "Why are you crying?"
Those of you who've talked to me on the phone or over voice chat know my voice and what it sounds like. Imagine it in a customer service environment. Somehow I think always sounding just this side of tears due to permanent congestion isn't going to help when some angry guy calls in about both of what are the most touchy subjects you can possibly have a call center handle.
Money and cars. I kid you not, people get very, very touchy and angry when you are dealing with either Money or Cars. So combine the two together and you have an office environment where death threats are the norm. Seriously, we get them all the time.
Permanent business casual dress starts Monday and that's also going to blow goats.

and I were plotting - very loosely, mind you a YuYu Hakushou and Inu Yasha crossover game.
And I was wondering what canon characters I'd pick up for something like that and I think I have it down to Urameshi Yuusuke from YYH and Sango and/or Myoga for the Inu Yasha side. I don't think I could write Inu Yasha, but I could write Yuusuke.
There's something pure about a character who gets stronger when he gets ticked off and people near him get threatened. Who gets better the more he gets his ass kicked. And who fixes all his problems with his fists.
As Koenma describes him, he is a person who acts entirely without thinking. Who's emotional responses are based entirely on the physical. In other words, he's a Total Moron.
In the writing-esque mood, I'll put out another call for drabbles. I know I still owe Lex one from the last drabble call, but I really, really don't feel right writing your Mack. I can't make myself do it.So, here's the drabble call. Give me a fandom or a challenge and I'll cook something up. If you don't know my fandoms, ask. ♥
