Since yesterday, my company has fired four people. And that's just the beginning...

I sometimes get asked why I don't like people. And there's oh, so many reasons, both general and very personal. But most of all? You can't count on them. Not really. Everything is fine, as long as it's they who need anything, come asking for help, are so grateful when you do. But when the tables turn? "Sorry, no can do".

I'm so fucking angry right now.

On my way to work, I saw three different car accidents sites. At least one person didn't make it.
I mean, I was hit by a car once, but that's totally different. I never had the chance to see all the gory details before. Never wanted to. But I just didn't close my eyes in time. I'm freaked out beyond words.

My comp died today.

After the latest problems, couple of months ago, my IT guru warned me, that those were its last days.
I didn't even manage to back up everything I had there, because for the last week or so, it refused to burn anything.

I can't afford a new comp. I don't know when I can afford new comp.
For now, I'm using company's laptop, good only for checking e-mails. And they may ask me to give it back any moment really.

I'm going to cry a little and generally feel sorry for myself.

This is what they've killed SGA for. "Beverly Hills 90210" in space.

Well, damn. Not the news I'd like to wake up to.

And yes, it's not a secret that I wasn't happy with the show for quite some time now. But it still sucks.

Luckily, we have some fantastic writers and artist in the fandom. And most of the time they're much, much better than the actual creators of the show.

Edit: I really planned to do some work today. But now I think I'll go back to [ profile] sgabigbang.

The laptop I was using (while my usual comp was being repaired) died on Friday afternoon.

That meant I was cut off from the world for the whole damn weekend.

Add the fact that I'm still feeling funny, and you can imagine how unhappy camper I was. Am.

So, after all, it was pretty shitty day.
from_the_corner: (BB)

Under the cut, because it's very long, very hysterical (and not in a good way), and very work-related. You have been warned.

I'm sure you're all sick and tired of me repeating how tired I am, and screw things are lately.
So I'm gonna shut up and disappear for a while, since - apparently - there's nothing else I have to say.

Three weeks ago, I was dying because of an abscess on my gum. An experience I don't wish to anyone, unless you like climbing up the walls because of pain.

Now I've caught an inner ear infection, and quite a bad case, too. I'm on antibiotics again, deaf on my right ear, and it's painful like hell. Luckily, this time the doctor didn't have to cut through anything, and if the drugs work, he won't have to. But I'm miserable and have to stay home , with all windows closed, to avoid any draughts. And it's over 30 degrees outside...

I think I'll go now and cry myself to sleep.

If you want to know what it takes to almost completely destroy a company, in just ten weeks (a company, that for the past 13 years was growing and showing constant profits increase) - just ask my new boss. I'm sure he'll happily provide all necessary details. He may even has a Power Point presentation for this.

People are so pissed off. Soon, things will happen and they won't be pretty.

Jan Mazoch is kept in a medically induced coma. His skull was crushed, so there's a risk of a brain damage. The doctors will probably try to wake him up tomorrow.

If you look down, from the top of a jumping hill, you always wonder – how can they do it?
Going down 100-something meters, then being catapulted with speed about 90 km/h (or about 105 on flying hills), fly for 3-5 seconds, to land on 120-140 meter (of 180-240, if it’s flying hill). With only skis on your feet.
Crazy, right?

There was an accident in Zakopane today. Jan Mazoch got some bad wind (or “lost” it at all) for a second, and fell on the landing, tumbling several times. Looked very ugly, and I’ve seen several bad falls through the years.

You don’t think about what can go wrong, when competition starts. You just cheer and keep your fingers crossed for your favourites. Even if the conditions are harsh, and the feeling that it’s getting dangerous is stronger. Curse the race director, when he pushes the competition against common sense.
And then it happens, and there’s dead silence on the stadium, and you have lump in your throat, because the guy you just saw laughing few minutes ago, fell, and he’s not moving. And there’s blood on the outrun.

I remember Matti's fall in Innsbruck in 1990. Mika's, in Ga-Pa in 1996. I remember when Goldi fell right on his head, 10 years ago, in Lahti. Risto, in Neustadt in 2002. Robert, Simmon, Thomas, just to mention few from recent years.
Just this season, in Kuusaamo, I almost had a heart attack, when Janne got strong blow at the end of the inrun and barely made it.

It happens to all of them, in one point or other, during training or competition, just bruises or worse. But the guys are strong, and keep coming back. If not this season, then the next. They’re like cats, but even cats only have nine lives.

On the side note – it’s a testament how much the climate has changed in last 20 years. Even ten years ago, we had two, maybe three competitions in the whole season, that were disturbed due to bad weather. Now it’s a miracle, when everything goes smoothly.

We don’t know how serious Mazoch’s condition is. They say, he regained consciousnes in the hospital and now is going through series of test. We can only pray, he’s gonna be fine.

Right now, at this very moment, I hate my fucking job.
I hate those fucking people, who doesn't give a shit that I work 12 hours a day, correcting their mistakes, when all they do is shrug and say "I won't be in until Monday".
I wonder when it stops being still December 29th for me...

It's official. My eyes have put down their feet and said, ten hours at work, staring at computer screen, is absolutely enough. Therefore I can't read any more fics off screen.
I can only print that much and I already have some 50+ links saved.

Do you, people, have to be so prolific?? (kidding, just kidding now).

I've watched "Irreversible" the other night. And for the love of God, I have no idea what made me do it. I felt sick watching it, feel sick even now and - what's worst - I can't throw the images out of my head. Nothing helps. I'm this close to banging my head against the wall. Jesus.

I know there is a name for this. This disease, sickness or whatever it is - when the mere thought of interacting with other people is so frightening that you simply stay at home (except from occasional visit at nearest grocery, 'cos you can live without human beings but not without coffee).
