LJ: The land of bandwagons and sheep.

Earlier I had complete ideas and sentences and now they just won't come. But the gist of what I was thinking is that it's amazing to see. Stuff spreading across LJ, that is. One person does something and then another and suddenly it's everywhere. And I hardly ever do because it seems like a lot of effort for nothing. I don't really believe anyone reads the quizzes and surveys I do. I only do them when I'm bored or if they're highly amusing. And even then I don't usually post them. And I won't even bother to ask if I have any lurkers. Why? Because I don't think I do. But this sounds more harsh than I mean it to. Really, I don't care who jumps on what bandwagon. I just think it's amusing to watch. You can see the progression on your friends list. Geez, does any of that make sense?

On another not pleasant note, I am in a foul mood today. And it seems I may be prone to bursting into tears for no reason. I mean, like every song on my NSYNC CD made me cry. And people (and when I say people, I mean one person in particular) at work are just working my last nerve. I'm a proofreader. My job is to catch mistakes before the documents are sent out to the customers. And I think I'm good at it. But when I hand a document back with about 20 spacing errors (i.e.: spaces before commas instead of after) and she says, "Well, go ask so-and-so if I'm supposed to fix those or just leave them," I want to tear my hair out. I'm like, what do you think I check the document for? Do you know how stupid our company would look if they sent a document like that to a customer? And these are legal documents like mortgages and such. This is the woman that was proofreading before I got here and who trained me. I don't know how she ever got the job.

Also, I am so stuck on the Joey mood theme. I cannot find pictures for some of the moods. What the hell does quixotic look like anyway? If you want to see what I've got so far it's here. I think I got the link right. And, please, if you have any ideas for the one left send me pictures. I think I'm going to go crazy looking.

Quixotic means to be sort of other worldly. Like, feeling outside of your body.

A perfect picture would be of Joey's bobblehead. It's him, but it's not his body

I'd be happy to snap a picture of my bobblehead tonight, if you like.

see, and the definition I was going by was:

quix·ot·ic [kwik sóttik ] adjective

1. romantic: tending to take a romanticized view of life

2. impractical: motivated by an idealism that overlooks practical considerations

3. impulsive: tending to act on whims or impulses

But whatever works. Because I can't figure out what picture to use for those definitions :)

so that's a yes on the picture. :) Thank you.
