To begin with, wimp!Boss has been off all week with something and will be off next week as well. In replacement, we got probably the best section boss in the office - Paul's smart, funny, knows how the section works (you'd be surprised how many temp bosses we get who don't) and doesn't let slackers get away with it. That means people like Chief Moron #1 doesn't manage to get away with disappearing to break 10 minutes early everytime.
And that reminds me of Chief Moron #2, whose one week holiday before my week off has turned into three weeks away from week at the moment. Apparently, he went for 'the snip', there's been some unexpected swelling (not there, absolut_jmo!!) and he can't sit down very much. I know I shouldn't take humour from these unfortunate occurances, but hell - the guy seems to think it his life's mission to annoy everyone with what he thinks is funny. It's not, and I'm smirking. Karma is good.
I forgot to do FANFIC AUTHORS' APPRECIATION WEEK Day 5 yesterday. Bad, bad booster17.
March 6 through March 13
Post to your LJ each day at least one of your favorite fanfic authors and why you love them, their work, and why they need more appreciation.
Today, I pick my fellow British Isles author speakr2customrs. I'm a complete sucker for re-telling of episodes or seasons where one tiny little crucial thing is changed, and everything spirals away from there. Pandora's Boxer is a marvelous re-telling of season 4, based on the idea of Spike having his soul back then. Each episode follows a roughly similiar idea to that of season 4, but the sheer fun of the changes and the subsequent consequences is brilliant. For example, there's a brand new Hostile17 in town, but I refuse to give that darling little twist away. Book one (season 4) is complete and should be read.
Other littles gems include the parody Savage Beauty : AU, everybody’s human, no vampires. Buffy is the Prime Minister of Iceland. Spike is a Jivaro head-hunter in the Brazilian rain-forest. Can they get together? And not forgetting his marvelous Buffybot stories.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll have a stonking great time.
