ARGH!!!  
I'm about ready to kill the new person they hired in my department. She has zero...ZERO computer skills. She's never used email. How is that possible in today's business world? She's been with us for two weeks now and I still have to hold her hand through just about everything and trust me, its not that difficult. I had to explain to her 50 times how to add a tab to an Excel spreedsheet!!! Once, maybe twice is enough for most people. I want to beat the piss out of the director of my department for hiring her. Surely there had to be better applicants for the job.

I've come home every night mentally exhausted to the point where I had to take a nap...that is so sad. She is wearing me out. And on top of her lack of ability to retain information, she gets flustered way to easily and gives up. We need someone in my department who can pick things up fast and can handle change. This is not the person we need. She gets another week to see if she can improve. In not, then a decision has to be made. I can't be holding her hand all the time. We have a lot of huge projects in the works and she needs to step up her output.


Bleh...in other news, I watched the first episode of a new anime that looks promising. Darker Than Black. Check it out. I'm too tired to give a synopsis. Just trust me, its good. And while I am happy Bleach has a new theme song, I'm not liking it all that much. Ah well, I guess they all can't be "Ichirin no hana." So, that all the news thats fit to print in my week of silence. Here is a meme to occupy your time.

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

Ugh, that sucks. Her lack of computer knowledge makes me think she's an older lady. Either way it's hard to just come out and say, "YOU SUCK. Quit already!" But I kind of hope they let her go so you're not passing out as soon as you walk in the door.

*Adds Darker than Black to my list of things to check out.*

I haven't heard the new Bleach opening/ending, but I guess one is done by the band that did a Naruto ending I hated. So yeah, already not really looking forward to something new. I'd just memorized the last opening to sing along when I watch, damn them! ;p

The formatting was too long to post,
but here's my quiz result.
(Surprise, surprise.)

Your Result: Anime Nerd


If anyone is likely to dress up in a crazy outfit, you are! You enjoy the visual stimulants of intense art accompanied with deep plots of fantasy, science-fiction, real-life; or you are just obsessed with Japan and everyone and everything in it. They love to gather with people like themselves at conventions and act crazy! The anime nerds are often associated with the stereotype of being the "psychotic" nerd, because they tend to be obsessive over their characters and series.

You psycho! I'm just kidding! But seriously, all forms of art should be appreciated, and anime is definitely one of them.

YAOI RULES!! okay, I added this last part

She is older, prolly late 40's early 50's. But still, unless she was working at some Mom and Pop company, how do you have accounting experience with no computer skills?

And if yaoi nerd was an option, I so would have been that^^

Just the fact that Bleach got interesting again is fine with me. Kon singing the opening made me laugh.

Good luck with that girl at work. Might sound tough, but i understand your point, it's hard to work with people who don't seem to have any motivation at all... But then having to make a decision must be terribly hard... Don't think of it during the week-end and have fun instead !

yay, i'm a hippy !

You're interested in things such as politics, psychology, child care, and peace. I wouldn't go so far as to call you a hippie, but some of you may be tree-huggers. You're the type of people who are interested in bettering the world. You're possible the least nerdy of them all; unless you participate in other activies that paled your nerdiness compared to your involvement in social activities. Whatever the case, we could still use more of you around. ^_^

evilkat_meow: Ishida- open shirtevilkat_meow on April 14th, 2007 01:53 pm (UTC)
Re: XD
At least I won't be the one to have to make that decision, I'll just advise as to her status.

I'm sure the new Bleach op/end will grow on me. The previous one did. I'm so looking forward to the next ep. The return of Ishida and some Quincest elements! *huggles Uryuu* I lurrve him.

LOL! You're a dirty, tree-hugging, hippie ^__^

Re: XD
yep, that's meh XD

To be honest i adored (really and i don't even know why) the very first opening... I even think i had it as ringtone for a while... ^_^;
You're right by the way, where's Ishida been all this time ? I miss Chad more though, he's such a cute teddy-bear ! and I'd like more about Isshin too, totally loved the way he burst in as a shinigami a while ago XD
