wook77: (true tales from the case files)
[personal profile] wook77
Today was the workday from hell.

It started with an email from the payroll company telling me that they were unwilling to do further research and that I should seek legal counsel to sue an employee to get the duplicate paid funds back from said employee. Only catch? Said employee only got the funds once, as I've been saying from the beginning. It was clearly apparent that the fucktard hadn't bothered to look at my email let alone the email attachment showing the employee's bank statement illustrating that they only got the funds once. Fucking fucktarding assholes.

Then, we have our annual audit going on right now. (Annual audit for a non-profit to maintain the 501(c)3 status so, really, completely expected and routine, nothing to panic over) I'm in charge this year and boy howdy is there a lot of work with this. Payroll account is all fucked to hell and back. I've spent the past two days working on the same issue. I called my sister (who is an auditor) and she basically says "not your problem, it's between the auditor and the payroll companies." Well, huh. I wish I would've called her two days ago instead of wasting 10 hours a day on this damn thing. Only reason I didn't call her is because I really do not like her.

However, during this whole 2 day fiasco, I was told that both companies (we used to use ADP but because they're incompetent boobs, we switched to a different company) filed the taxes for a payroll. So, I go into instant panic mode and start filing for amendments. Then, after they both call me back, turns out one filed but didn't deposit so the other deposited but didn't file. I know, it's all accounting babble but what it really means is that I wasted 3 VERY stress-filled hours on a bunch of bullshit that should never have happened.

I've also discovered not one, not two, not even six but fifteen posting errors in the payroll accounts. Basically - this means that SLL fucked up numbers that I gave her and just picked whatever fucking place she wanted to put shit in regardless of carefully calculated (and explicitly detailed) instructions. ARGH. Why don't I want them to fire her again? Oh, right, generally a nice person other than that fucktard incompetent boob thing going.

Fandom-wise, I'm writing for fun and that is very very nice. I have a huge deamus that will eventually go along with the [livejournal.com profile] 100quills claim I made for Deamus but for now, I'm just tweaking for canon compliance before I start sending to beta and then posting. It's sitting at about 27000 words right now with IDK how many more to go.

[livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts is making me feel like the nose-picker in elementary school that's last to get picked for dodgeball. I thought I made relatively open requests but no one's claimed any of them. *le sad* All I want is kissing. That's it. However, I claimed something that is made of win and the only problem with it that I shall have is keeping it small. Plus the mods are made of win and have promised everyone who claims will get something so I still have something to look forward to, regardless of said nose-picker status.

UGH, speaking of nosepicking, I cannot tell you how many times I see people picking their noses in their car. I never saw this amount anywhere else that I've lived/driven frequently. Tucson is the WORST. It's like drivers here think that just because they have their windows up, you can't see them shoving a digit up their noses. It's just gross and GAH KNOCK IT THE FUCK OFF, TUCSON! I MEAN IT!!! YOU MAKE ME WANT TO VOMIT! Sorry about that, now on to the rest of the post...

[livejournal.com profile] thescarletwoman and I have assumed the reins at [livejournal.com profile] rs_prophet and we're looking to revitalize and relaunch it. If you have any current Remus/Sirius writers you think we should watch, leave a list here, please. Also, if you're interested in being an editor, email me? wook77[at]livejournal[dot]com.

Typing my email up there reminded me that my paid account is expiring soon. I'm really sad to be losing my icons and that whole LJ email thing.

Finally, a couple of recs.

Because I'm finally able to put coherent thought into it. At [livejournal.com profile] hpslashnotsmut, I received Observance and it's Dean/Seamus. Brilliant composition and form, unique and lovely. Add in that this mystery author's characterisations are spot-on and I'm in love. It entwines within the Deathly Hallows canon and it's seamless, really. Just little bibs and bobs of canon that I just love so much. It's extremely well done and I can't tell you that enough. There's these little idiosyncratic observances that really make the story completely full and vibrant. It had me from the first sentence, really. I wanted to know more and the author really gave me just enough to fill in the blanks ALMOST to the point of being satiated. I absolutely love a story that does that for me. I'm gobsmacked that it only has 2 comments on it. Surely more people have read it and enjoyed it.

[livejournal.com profile] kaalee wrote a stream-of-consciousness drabble-ish Dean/Seamus for my birthday - Deadly Perfection. We've had these conversations about how I'm a bit of a stream of consciousness author, I like giving insights into their heads and writing exactly what the characters are thinking and [livejournal.com profile] kaalee claims that she can't do that. Personally, I think and have thought, she's full of shit. This right here is my physical proof. It flows really nicely and gives you a fleshed out picture simply by what it implies in between the thoughts.

Go forth and heap the love by telling the creators of these (and more) works that you enjoyed them!

My friend has been on me to do Small Gifts, but I just can't. I'm terrible with deadlines. So terrible in fact that I have one Monday and I've just now got the idea for it! :(

YAY for more wook-fic though! :D.

Work sounds like major fail. Sorry :(

I might be able to help with the rs_prophet, but I'd be afraid to commit to it with the way my life works :/. Maybe I'll just send things along when I see them? Dunno.

<---off to read the fics you've linked. ;)

I know what you mean! My gift hasn't been picked either.. :( But I guess it's really cool that everybody is going to receive something anyway! :) And yes. Keeping things small is one of my bigger problems. I don't think I'm even capable of writing something less than 2,000 words, and sometimes it gets really annoying for me, because it busies me up like whoa!
