Hello to All my fellow twilight series lovers !
Ok I've been lurking around and decided to post. I just wanted to know what this thread was about. Hope to chat with some of you
G'Day from Australia. I'll need you to post again for me to think of more things to say to you!

And I "have" to watch some more true blood, 'cos the friend who fell head-over-heels for the series keeps bugging me so that she'll have someone to talk about it with. And since she read Twilight-saga (and the Host) for me, I guess I'll better be that good a friend. I started her on the Swedish version of Vampire Diaries, she too prefers the books to the series so far. I figured out why it took me so long to connect them, in Swe the series are called "the Vampires Love" or something like that. Oh, I gotta go find the originals... Jeez how I loved those books as a tween...
I did some googling of True Blood yesterday - seems to me this show is rated R - damn. It has (apparently) the first ever screen sex scene between a vamp and a human that shows nudity. interesting. I know that Anna gets her gear out, but I also believe that every dude goes around without shirts at one point or another. Should mean my wife will get all the stuff she'll enjoy - vampires + melrose place-ness.
I'm going to whine and I'm using this board because the person that I'm whining about is spying me always on FB. The bitchy boss is always bitching on me for pete's sake! I dunno what's her F*ing problem on me but she's just a b ! t c h always. I wanna strangle her right now but I just cant. I dunno what's the problem with the people "with title" in the office and they act like they're Gods and they own you and they simply p **s s es the sh !t out of you. First, she instructed me not to undergo OT (the fact that we a lot of things to do everyday) and every morning I have to cram because there are some unfinished tasks that are due early morning. Second, she always "make up" stories and tell it to the boss in the U.S. about what we are doing here. (The boss privately E-mail me and tell me about if this' true or something and of course if isn't true I deny it and eventually the boss there will believe me), Third, she give me tasks that needs more time but she didn't give me enuff time. Fourth, she's always walking behind my workstation, acting like she will just pass or she will get something, but in truth, she'll just look on my monitor to see if I'm doing my work. and I f-en hate it!!! Fifth, I caught her doing something on my pc without permission and she just shrugged it off as if she just didn't violate my privacy or something.
Now I remember Sonia's boss. and I'm having the same dilemma. Now seriously, how I will deal with this stupid s h i t boss who is not really a boss but really bossy and act like she's the most efficient F-en boss in the whole freaking world. Well, in fact she's not and I can do her job more accurately. Argghh! I f-en hate her. She's getting on my nerves!!!
I'm sorry for the filthy mouth there.
OK, I'm a manager, and I don't treat my staff like that. Of course I have a balance of staff who work best left to their own devices, and staff who need to be "monitored" to ensure they aren't slacking, but her behaviour sounds a lot different to that.
It's good you've received the advice to put a screen saver and password on your station. It's not so good that you're using the board here during working hours - that, unfortunately, is giving fuel to her behaviour.
I think it is very good that you are being factual with her bosses; next time they send you an email, reply with a question at the bottom - "is it true that all correspondenace from myself to you needs to go via (bosses name), because she advised me that this is the case recently"
This is a very fair question to ask, and will set their hackles up, because they'd have to ask themselves, why would a supervisor want all correspondence to her superiors from her staff to be vetted? If I was asked that question by one of my staff, I'd immediately be suspicious of the supervisor in question.
Also, Janny has given some great advice - see if there is a specific set of rules/regulations/obligations for the workplace, and specifically ask HER for a copy of them. I'd be careful about putting in complaints though - office politics play a lot into these things, and sometimes, it doesn't go the way you would expect.
Me stuff - yesterday my wife tripped over and hurt her arm, and we thought there was a potential for there to be a broke bone.
Today, I took time off work to drive her to the hospital for an X-ray (she can't drive with the temporary cast in place because it put her thumb in an awkward position, and was not firm enough to prevent pain in her arm when she put pressure on it.
Anyway, the chick taking the X-Ray didn't remove the cast, and when we went to the doctor (already an hour out of work by this point, so that was my lunch hour gone), she took one looks and noticed that the cast was still one. We had to go back.
The radiographer then had the nerve to be pissed off that she had to do it again, asking why didn't we tell her the cast had to come off, and was really rough placing her arm, so that it hurt more.
Of course, this pissed me of severely once I heard about it (after we left), especially since my brother is a radiographer and ALWAYS makes sure he is careful with placement. And as a professional in the health industry myself, it is always important that you NEVER blame anyone else for mistakes (I'll personally take the blame for another pharmacists mistakes, so that patient's don't think we're trying to dodge responsibility).
In the end, I ended up missing my lunch hour and another hour of work. Damn.
On the good side, turns out there isn't a break, or if there is, it is very small and should heal normally. We'll do a follow up X-Ray in 10 days to see if there is any development (sometimes scaphoid bones in the wrist can break without showing up on X-Ray immediately, and after a few days, with movement etc, the break widens a little, enough to be seen). This is important because scaphoid bones can die if a fracture in them doesn't heal properly.
Also good was the news that the new Paramore album had arrived. I bought the boxed set direct from the US, which has all types of mcGuffin in it (posters, stickers, etc), but the 3 things I wanted were 1) CD (obviously), 2) DVD, 3) little vinyl (I'm a sucker for vinyl). I'm pretty happy with it - less energetic songs, deeper themes. It's a good album, and is not a carbon-copy of previous albums they've done - important!
