If you like to buy Doctor Who items from Amazon, I think you should stay away from pulseleisureltd.

On 5th November I've ordered Amy Pond figure.
On 8th November it was marked as shipped. Packages from UK to CZ usually arrive within 7days.
In late Nomveber I was told that packages to my area may take longer and to be patient.
On 8th December I was told to be patient.
On 12th December I checked with my sorting post office and I was told there was no package from me since the beginning of November and to obtain the filling number.
When I asked for the number I was told that my item was returned to them that very day, undelivered.
I asked for photos of the package so I could file a claim with my post office for not delivering/announcing my packages. The answer was they are too busy to deal with that now.
I asked for my item to be resent as recommended package with tracking number that I am willing to pay the additional cost (mind you, I think 5GBP for a P&P of a small figure that they sent without tracking number is way too much). Suddenly the item came back damaged and they cannot resend it, but I will get a full refund including the P&P.

So, if you want to buy Doctor Who stuff, stay away from pulseleisureltd.

Now I am glad that I got the free L sized men shirt with the Doctor Who Encyclopedia. Otherwise I'd be left with nothing to give my brother for Christmas.

Let's welcome Mr. Cough to the wonderful fellowship of "Virus caused illnesses of Seven's body". Here, meet Sir Runny Nose and his wonderful girlfriend, Major Headache. Also, you might want to consider getting acquainted with a great friend of theirs, Lord Sore de Throat. As you can see, they are wonderful company that could provide you with hours of fun while the tea is running out of Seven's ears as she is not watching Doctor Who.

Why am I not watching Doctor Who? Because all I can do is to listen. I think most of you know why contact lens and cold are not a good idea. Plus have you tried wearing glasses while having a runny nose? Not very practical, is it? Alas...not masturbation, but cold makes you go blind.

Now if you excuse me I'm going to watch listen to Doomsday.

Ramen noodles for breakfast. I'd make a mighty fine Ood. I had to go to the mall as I ran out of the nose spray and there is the closest pharmacy open on Sunday. Of course it is one of those that sells pseudoephedrine containing meds only prescribed, unlike my usually pharmacy that sells them when I show them my ID. So no help there, huh?

The night was terrible, I kept on waking up with my nose completely congested and I cannot breathe through my mouth either because my throat is so sore. And I have an epic headache as a result. Oh cold, why couldn't you find some other victim, someone less hypochondriac and bitchy?
sevenjetc: (don't want)
So I wanted to be creative this weekend. I have like five unfinished vids, the Ballad of Russell and Julie translation (because in my mind, it has to rhyme!) and of course I've let Kate talk me into continuing the fic. Instead I have this luxurious cold that came with free sore throat and red nose.

The vidding is of the table because my head hurts too much to listen to music. And translating and writing is off the table too because all I can think of when I am not blowing my nose is how comes that the human body is able to produce so much slimy substance in the first place.

Yes, I know I came in late today. I spent the morning at the toilet, I don't think that the sandwich last night was good. I know what time my job starts. Just shut up, f*** off and let me be. You are not even my boss! I met him when I came in, I apologized and he laughed and said that it's okay, 15minutes is not so much of a difference. So you shut and be blonde or whatever is your job here. You know what, my life would be much better if you got married and went to maternity leave, but you are so annoying that no one would even date you.

Uffff, feeling much better, even though my intestines aren't (they probably think that I need more exercise and therefore are making me run).
sevenjetc: (kill me)
Never have anything unofficial under your own name, 1st rule of the internet. So see...I am going to the job interview tomorrow. As a joke, I put the interviewing person's name to the almighty google. Now I know:

1. How does she look.

2. Is a year older than me.

3. Which schools she attended and that she finished college at the age of 27.

4. That she likes IT Crowd, Futurama and Twin Peaks, her favourite character is Sheldon Cooper and her favourite movie is 21 grams.

5. Likes the same tv station that I do, hates the same politican.

6. Has a blog in English.

Now I know all that, what do I do with it?

If she runs google search on my own name, she may find out what tv shows I like on facebook and that I run a program line at one convention and I happened to be successful participant in several math contests back in 1999-2003.

The deal that I made with myself not to cry about how fucked up everything is as of this day in my life was broken after a week holding back and the first tear is followed by a whole flood. However, I don't think that it would make me feel any better. Maybe puffy and unable to see.
sevenjetc: (Bored)
And I have been invited to ONE interview. What am I doing wrong? Am I really that ugly and stupid? I am really getting depressed by this all. I just want to...get the hell out of the night shifts and weekends. I am not looking for anything extra. I just want to get out. Make the same or little more money. Have some perspective, not a dead end job. Have a boss who has a brain in her/his head. Is that too much to ask?
sevenjetc: (Bored)
So I've spent most of the night today sending out my resume. I made sure to personalize each of the emails, using the name of the contact person, the company and the job description, pointing out my skills in the relevant area. I think that at this point I am starting to lie and exagerate, telling myself that I can always catch up as I go. It is hard to find even a temp job. However I do not want to work night shifts anymore, nor I have the need to listen to "great" ideas of a stupid person aka our boss, the author of the quote "The best view of Grand Canyon is from Canada" and with creative English.

Anyway, I've already found replacement for myself, all I have to do now is to find a job and then inform my boss. She better let me go and not hold me here for months, as it would mean hell on Earth for the both of us. I think that we are civilized people and seriously, three months notice? No way I could be held here for three more months.

I don't think I am going to be able finish the uni, after four years, I think it is time to admit to myself that the battle is done and the war is over and I lost. It is just too hard trying to juggle full time job and the university's requirements. I am too old and too tired and I just give up, right here, right now. I cannot do that anymore. Plus it would mean staying at this job if I tried one more time and I know I'd fail anyway. I just can't ever win, can I?

Three more hours before the shift is over, so I am going to work on this LJ layout, ok?
sevenjetc: (OMG)
So looking for a better job I have been once again going through the webpages of various tv stations. Well, some call it looking for a job, but by now (five years and not a single interview, a single answer) it is just sending of outrageous emails in vain hope that someone thinks I'm funny and asks me over for an interview. I guess nobody needs to employ a zero real life experience person whose main job experience is her House parody webpage and main career success running of a program line at convention. Actually, I should put that down on my resume, it's a business like any other.

Anyway, I came across AXN. And it's been three seasons now and I still cannot believe it.
The frakkin' show really is literary called TIME LORD in Czech translation. Like totally. I think they should change it to The Time Lord and the Earth Girl for season 4. And to Weirdo and Ginger for season 5, that would rock.
sevenjetc: (Cigarette)
I myself have done it thousand times.

Oh yeah, 39hours. Last night's How I Met Your Mother was very fitting. I am going to just stand at the balcony for 5minutes.
sevenjetc: (noes)
Meda died. His condition got worse this afternoon and there was nothing the vet could do. I will miss his doggy smile and the way he licked my face and gave me a paw everytime we were saying bye terribly. He was a good doggie. My precious doggie. I will remember the way he played in the snow and how we were playing together in my teenage years forever. He was a darling. I hope he is with grandpa again now.
