FireSpinner and all her Obsessions

Fall is finally here October 22, 2008

And I’m freezing.  I suppose I should put on socks or something.  I only knit them all the time.

So, Halloween is rapidly approaching and it is one of my favorite holidays.  I love getting dressed up and decorating, especially since my credit union has a huge contest between all of the branches.  Last year we placed for the first time and that was a sweet taste of something beautiful, so this year IT IS ON!!!!  We’re not only going to place we are going to WIN!  We started planning about a month or so ago.  Our theme this year is Clue!!! (and if I find out that you told ANY of the other branches, especially Burlington, I will kick your ass!)  We’re making all the offices look like the rooms on the gameboard.  And we are all dressing up as the characters.  I got dibs on Miss Scarlett (obviously, she was the cool one when I played when I was little).  I even bought a dress on ebay!  It was very spontaneous.  I only went to ebay for some ideas, but it seemed perfect.  And one of our members of the CU is an interior designer and she invited me to come to tour the warehouse for ideas and things to borrow.  Big things, like a loveseat and chairs and stuff!!!  It’s going to be awesome.  I already have three huge bags of fabric for drapes and stuff!


procrastinating sleep August 30, 2008

Hi!  This is me procrastinating sleep.  I know I need to and I really want to, but my mind is running a million miles an hour right now.  I’m going to pop an anxiety pill and hope that when I’m done with this massive update I will be sleepy…

Back and medicated.  FYI, if you want to skip my rambling and get to the story of the day, skip down to the Romance part.



Most unreliable employee ever! April 30, 2008

I am the most unreliable employee ever!  And it’s really going to bit me in the ass one day.  When my future employers call Metro to get references, my boss is going to say something along the lines of: Well, she’s a hard worker and does her job well, but she’s very unreliable.  Always late.

Always late.  Today its because my brakes went out.  It was scary as hell!  I thought I was going to hit somebody for sure.  Fortunately I didn’t, but I came very close.  Yet another thing wrong with my Jeep.  Great!  The Jeep will never make it down to South Carolina or Georgia.  But I can’t afford to buy a new car right now.  I have no idea how long it will take me to find a job if I move.  Unless I can save a couple months’ payments AS WELL AS a down payment, but thats going to be really really REALLY hard!

Ok, I have to head out now.  Get my late ass in to work.  Yes, I realize this post only made me later, but still…

I have a crush. A kinda big one. Even though I know nothing is going to happen. He works kinda for the bank. More like he works for the company who sets up our Cash Dispenser and he is our guy for when it doesn’t work. Seeing as how we just opened and just started using this machine, this machine that is the first of its kind in the US, we see him a lot. He’s dorky-cute. Just my type. And now my boss and L knows about my crush. I told L myself and my boss kinda figured it out when he said the guy was coming in to look at the machine in the morning and I pouted cause I’m coming in late tomorrow. My boss was just like, “Why the pouting…. Ohhh” My turning ten shades of red kind of gave it away apparently. I’m just no good at talking to guys. Really, no good at all.


Work is hard June 6, 2007

Filed under: work — firespinner526 @ 2:39 am

So, work at the MCU is ridiculously tough right now. Our branch is relocating to a fancy, new, huge, state of the art building down the street. We are getting out of the tiny little office building we’re stuck in now, but until we are there, the testing and training for the new branch is really, really, REALLY hard. We have a small staff and are split between the two buildings and our head teller is on vacation, we’re trying to learn the new equipment and train two new tellers all at the same time. Really, really hard. I can’t wait until next week, when we are all in the same location, at least. Or really, till the week after that, when we are used to the new digs. Seriously, this was the worst planned move ever. They have another staff dost of the testing. A full staff that they hired for a new branch that isn’t opening till September (if they’re lucky, we we’re supposed to open the new branch in January). They are going to have their own branch to test in a couple of months, so they should be covering our current branch while we get set up in the new place.

Ok, I think I’m done complaining about work for today. My phone just rang and I’m curious to see who’s calling me.
