This may be premature but...  
... I think I might be getting my life back again. It's Day 2 of having my boss back again (and therefore no longer being boss-person myself) and I'm on cloud 9. I LOVE HAVING A BOSS!!! *bounces* And to make this fandom-related... I think I finally get why Kara didn't care that much about being CAG. Because hello, it is WAY more fun to be the slightly loud-mouthed and rebellious offsider than the guy that has to do all the paperwork and answer for shit at the end of the day. :D And yeah, I may seem diplomatic online but in real life? Huahahaha, no. I have an unfortunate habit for telling the truth in meetings and a low tolerance of idiots--this does not get you far in management, I have found.

So what's going on round here?! :) I missed stuff! I owe some people mail--and I promise I'm working on it. My inbox is kinda scary... *guilt*

I do have some posts to pimp though. I'm always a big fan of people focusing on what they like and not what they like to whinge about... and in that spirit, I have really enjoyed:
- asta77's post on why she loves Lee Adama
- wisteria_'s post on why she loves Kara Thrace
- and daybreak777's post on falling for the Kara/Lee ship.

Also, Kara/Lee fans who haven't read this extremely hot fic by elzed are missing a treat. *g*

I feel kinda bad not having anything SV-related to pimp... but seriously, people, is there anything out there?!

Oh, and before I forget, I apologise to anyone who tried to dl my new vid the other day when the link wasn't working. I have fixed it now. And I'm even feeling thick-skinned enough (or stupid enough) to stick my name up on the vidding truth meme so if anyone feels inclined to tell me where my weaknesses are or how I could improve... pipe up. :) I do appreciate that it takes time and care to give people proper concrit, so if anyone does, I'll be very grateful.

Freedom!!! *yay* You must be ecstatic! And being the rebellious offsider has to be more fun than being in charge...unless...you work out a great way to abuse your authority and make everybody bring you chocolate and cookiesdo your bidding!

Speaking of chocolate cookies, I scored 500g of couverture milk chocolate buttons at Knox City for $5 the other day. I think some baking is in order ;)

The pilot love is great and very inspirational.

And I must read teh pilot!porn asap, who needs a shower and sleep, not me *yawn*

Turns out I was REALLY bad at abusing my authority. :( Woe!

You making cookies? mmm... that speaks to my chocolate-craving premenstrual status. I think I might have to stop off on the way to work for a raspberry and white choc muffin. :)

Yay! I was thinking about your situation just yesterday and wondering if you were close to being free, and yes! I am so happy to hear that you are, indeed, free. That is AWESOME. *twirls you*

Thank you! :-) I am definitely happy about it.

Glad to hear you're a happy bunny, bop! Yes, I can relate to the CAG/no CAG situation too, sometimes the responsibility of power is a pain in the ass. Hee - as I say that I'm watching the end of Razor (the extended edition, which I finally got on DVD) and I am amused because, hey, this is what it's all about.

And thank you so much for the lovely rec! I am honoured.

You're welcome. :) And yes, power sucks!

Aw, reduction of stress is always lovely and a much under-rated source of yays.

I shall read those links too, thanks!

Hooray! I'm so glad to hear this -- three cheers for getting your life back! And I hope this means your boss is all better, and that life in general is looking up for you and your office.

Yes, boss is all better! He is remarkably energetic--everyone is still astonished by this, which he's probably getting totally sick of. I'm definitely much perkier and I'm convinced everyone else is too... though to be honest they still seem stressed. Hmm. Perhaps the magic-boss-wand only works for me.

Yay! I'm so glad your boss is back and you're free of that hassle.

So this means that the evil one-eyed tyrant might survive after all? I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing ;)

It's great that work is starting to calm down for you. Soon, all the stress will have gone, and you can dance with all Clark's enthusiasm at the sudden inundation of free time :)

Oh, the tyrant lives large and in fact spent a good hour or so at my desk today...

All the stress will have gone you say? Not quite yet... I'm still managing 12 books (average workload is 4-6 books).

Congrats on being de-minioned! I prefer being minionless myself, what with being uncomfortable delegating (if you want something done right...) and with worrying over authority (minions cannot learn how young I am *eek*).

I'm always asking this, but ...asta77 and wisteria_'s posts have S3.5+ spoilers, yes? I really need to catch up.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: BSG hiatusthonbop_radar on January 16th, 2008 08:27 am (UTC)
Ah, yeah, I had the age issue too. I was managing someone who had at least 20 years on me... By sheer necessity of extreme volume of workload I got rather good at delegating. Of course it was usually done only once I'd reached the crying with hysterical laughter stage...

And yeah, sorry, I think those posts DO have 3.5 spoilers. :( They def'ly have ones for Razor at least.

Unfortunately for me, I am not about to be de-minioned (it's part of the job description), but at least they don't have 20 years on me. It's more that ...some of my student workers are probably my age. *is young, also: dropout*

Of course it was usually done only once I'd reached the crying with hysterical laughter stage...

Oy. I'm very glad for you that your boss is back now, then.

Thank you, 'tis a relief. :)

Yay for getting your life back!!

It took me a lot longer than you to realise that I am no CAG either. I must admit I a lot kinder to the CAGS these days as a result though.

Thanks for the recs!

Yeah, I definitely gained new appreciation for my boss--and I already liked him a lot. :)

Woo-hoo, Bop's coming back! I hope you have some time to catch up with yourself too, I'm sure LJ isn't the only thing you've had little time for. Still going to yoga?

I can feel it beginning, the long hiatus is heading for a close. Again, woo-hoo! There's BSG love coming out everywhere! Come join in! (And thanks for mentioning my little post.)

As for SV, I keep rewatching your vid. The end makes me grin all the time, like this icon.

(They are so gorgeous, like really.)

Yeah, yoga has suffered as well. :(

Awww, thanks for the vid love.
