OH MAN I LOVE MY JOB. Granted we've only been actually independently scoring this prompt for 2 days, so maybe soon it will become a drag, but right now I'm just like YES THIS IS EXCITING. Math has officially usurped reading in my heart, test-scoring-wise. I would sooooo much rather just count up the points in seconds, with only minor quibbling over whether a written explanation of their work is sufficient to meet the criteria, rather than read a whole essay and try to assess the quality of the writing. The speed with which I can tear through these is just exhilarating. And it's fun! Plus, whenever an explanation is partly right but not enough to meet all criteria for the score, I get to yell "Not good enough! *whip*" in my head.

Tonight someone even brought in these delicious chocolate chip cookie bars to share with the room. That's the kind of people we hire. Well, they hire. I just really love this company and continue to nurse a secret plan of one day following the internal job postings closely enough to work for them in some capacity permanently, so I think of it as mine.

Where was I going with this? Oh right! Glee! I'm gonna put it in its own post tonight, though. Hang on...

I NEED AWESOME TITLE LYRICS, STAT. Preferably not from episode.

I am not declaring myself as having officially watched this episode, because I skipped through it on mute and only un-muted when I saw promising Kurt scenes. But I am very happy that I chose to loosen my NOT-CAUGHT-UP!spoiler restrictions so I can bring to you an extremely condensed preview version* of my response to it, which will probably be better than anything I write later, anyway.

[*edit: "extremely condensed preview version" apparently meaning "since I'm only going to talk about a few scenes, I can go into EXCESSIVE VERBOSITY about them!"]

I chose Klaine over pretty dresses, not sure if right

In other words, I accidentally stayed up all night flailing about Glee instead of sleeping or doing work. Since I only got about 3 hours of sleep last night, I made myself go to bed at 6am and got another 4 hours, but that means I woke up late and now night work starts in 3.5 hours and I still have to take a shower/wash my hair, plan for a 30-minute commute, get gas, and also I still have to make EPIC shop contacts and review half of my new work, so I don't think I will have any time to detour 15 minutes out of my way (round trip) to browse Savers for their 40%-off-dresses sale today. :( :( :( I mean that's not a great deal, but it was an excuse to go to Savers and see if there was anything I ~absolutely adored~ that I could get a discount on.

Not sure if I regret last night or not. Because I was really, really happy when I woke up this morning and made a beeline to gaze fondly at my screencaps and Tumblr gifsets again. On the other hand, now I am a huge ball of stress.

[edit: was almost able and ready to leave at 3:40, but then I lost my wallet and spent an hour tossing my entire room and every crevice of the car in vain, so I never got to go to Savers and I didn't have enough energy to enjoy wearing the pretty dress I'd been waiting for today's 70-degree high to wear; was exhausted and furious at everyone by the time I got to work. Snapped at and shut down Chris, who was absent yesterday due to a conference at work and had showed up early today so we'd have time to talk before work, and had also brought me a present of a thermos with a dog on it, after I expressed a wish for a thermos so I wouldn't have to keep wasting the Styrofoam cups at work. Just a super fantastic crap day. Also, my wallet turned out to be inside my nightstand drawer, buried under all the stuff I had pushed over it while looking for something else in there, wallet originally in hand because I was transferring it from one purse to another and foolishly put it down inside the drawer.]
