Today at work the two CEOs of my Facilities company were in, and then they said they had a meeting with someone from the new company that's bought out our bank. I can only assume they were discussing our contract with them, or something to do with our relationship with them. I asked vaguely about it, and my boss said they'd apparently talked about cost-cutting measures and our services - but it seemed very much like they were discussing both companies working out some cost-cutting measures, and they weren't just flat-out refusing the contract the previous company had with us. Which makes me feel a little bit better. Even though they could absolutely fail to work out cost-cutting measures and just decide to go with a different Facilities company, or do it all in-house. But as long as they aren't just outright getting rid of our company, they'll always need receptionists, and I'm already doing the job, so there's a good chance I'll stay. So it's a little selfish, considering they might cut down on any of our other staff, but it does make me feel a bit better.

Internet news is so stressful these days, but apparently Anita Sarkeesian stood up to a cunt, so that's much much more wonderful than what I was imagining when I heard she got harassed at vidcon.

The other day I was looking for that clip of Jimmy Carr wrangling kittens on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, and I found this lovely clip too:



Like a fool, I also looked up old Ben and Jerry's flavours the other day, and now I'm desperate for pear ice-cream and plum ice-cream, and none is very findable.

And if I had to recommend any Let's Play that the company I watch do, it would probably be this one where three of them put on Southern accents (even the Southern ones) and pretend to go out hunting Bigfoot, ala Mountain Monsters, a show one of them watches.

Just when you're getting depressed with life and all people everywhere, a ray of sunshine falls upon you.

Speaking of rays of sunshine, in Trails of Cold Steel today I chose to do a bonding event with the commoner boy (who I love). It was a visit to a technology institute, and I thought they'd finally talk about his love of technology that he obviously has and they never mention. Instead, as the main character and he were about to go through the doors, they were interrupted by some scientists who were testing out their newly-invented remote control cars. It turned into a situation where they were asking the main character and the commoner boy to have a race with the cars, and then they said ideally there should be three people racing. And I thought "Am I going to get to choose the third person, I will choose the noble boy!". But no, the commoner boy chose himself, and HE CHOSE THE NOBLE BOY. Then at the end of the race they were neck-and-neck and got consumed by a desire to defeat each other, and the noble boy's offering to the situation was "Kneel before me, fool!". Like, SLOW DOWN THERE JUSIS. Maybe keep some things under your hat.

A happy thing: one of the Let's Players I like talking about how he 'really misses' the other one I ship him with, in a video the other dude wasn't in.
