Oh Goodness, So Much Packing

Hi Internet People,

I was so busy packing and working on The Nerdy Girl Express articles last night that I didn’t get the chance to write a blog post. If you don’t already know, I have training for a new job starting on Monday and it won’t be done until Wednesday around 3 pm. I’m going up today and staying at the hotel instead of trying to figure out how to battle rush hour traffic and not miss check in.

I spent last night getting all my stuff together, but I wanted to make sure I got some recaps done and a video prepped for next week. I’m hoping I can still watch the Preacher finale tonight and fingers crossed I can watch Scream on Tuesday night. I brought my camera just in case I can film my Autopsy of a Scream video. I also might just film a random video, we shall see. I got my Fangirl Freakouts one done for this week already, I wanted to make sure it was done.

With the training I’m not sure what I’ll write up here for Tuesday and Wednesday. We get done pretty early in the evening so I think I’ll still have time to write, even if I can’t do my normal Scream video.

That’s it really, just wanted to say that my posts might be a little random the next few days, not like they aren’t already random, because of my training.

My Kinda Recaps: Inhuman Condition Eps 15-17

Hi Internet People,

I try and fit all the drama from this week’s episodes of Inhuman Condition on KindaTV into a video that you can watch in less than 15 minutes. Tamar and Graham, Clara and Linc, Dr. Kessler and Will, Lycan Superior, seriously there’s a lot going on. I also whine about the hiatus and scowl at whatever Will is doing.

Last Day at the Video Store!!!!!!!

Hi Internet People,

Guys!! Hey guys!!! Guys!!!! It’s my last day at the video store!!!! LAST DAY AT THE VIDEO STORE!!!!!!! See that, see the excitement, I’m so excited!!!! Okay, I don’t hate my job, though it stresses me out, irritates me, and frightens me. Yes, frightens. At my job I was berated by male customers twice my size, not often, but it did happen. I was also yelled at by women, though admittedly I was much better at talking down women than men. I was also robbed. It was okay, no one hurt me. The guy distracted me and just took the money out of the drawer while I was getting a movie for him from the wall. I did have to call the cops, but because I called super fast and a customer saw the dude’s license plate number they caught the guy in a matter of minutes. Though after the cops left I had to stay in the store and put movies away. My brother came because my family didn’t want me to be alone.

I’ve also had to clean puke out a drinking fountain. Yeah, that was disgusting and if I weren’t already a vegetarian I would never eat Hamburger Helper again. It was so gross! I have a strong stomach though so I didn’t puke in the puke. I had to stop an overflowing toilet, while the store was completely full of people, scrub said toilet two weeks after a plumber fixed the clog because no one cleaned it after we closed it to customers, and was sprayed with toilet water from the back of the employee toilet when it refused to flush. On top of that I’ve had to cover shifts when people didn’t show up, including a girl whose mom called and said her daughter quit 20 minutes before she was supposed to be at work. That particular day was also my mom’s birthday, our air conditioning was broken, and my friend Bri was keeping me company in the store because a different location in the city had been robbed earlier in the day.

I worked hours off the clock, including two hours of weeding that I shouldn’t have had to do because we have landscapers. I also don’t get any breaks or time to eat, even if I’ve been scheduled to work 10:30 am-8 pm. I’ve worked without a working bathroom, no heat, and no air conditioning. I was never trained by a manager to take on an assistant manager position because she didn’t trust anyone to do anything connected to her job. Oh and I have been hit on countless times by men of all ages. Last thing, I have had to work while sick. Like doctor said do not go to work and I still had to go to work.

I did get free rentals and the ability to watch movies early. Like I have The Killing Joke in my house right now, I’m going to do a Fangirl Freakouts about it next week because I also read the comic. I met some nice people and I did get a chance to catch up on shows and movies I got behind on. Really the video store provided me a nice break that gave me the time to recuperate after grad school and get involved on the internet. Without that job I wouldn’t have had the time to start a blog, become a writer for The Nerdy Girl Express, or start my YouTube channel. See, there were moments of happy from my video store job. So in conclusion working at a video store is not like Clerks, though you will have to touch a lot of porn because that stuff rents like crazy!

Autopsy of a Scream: Episode 8

Hi Internet People,

A party, sexy times, and some very interesting sleeping situations were all part of this week’s episode of MTV’s Scream. I recap it all and give some theories about the killer, possibly killers, in this Autopsy of a Scream.

Big Trip This Week!

Hi Internet People,

I just have three more days of work left at the video store and though it isn’t technically to celebrate, my siblings and I are going to Cedar Point on Wednesday. I work today, Thursday, and Friday, but we were all free on Wednesday and decided to have some fun. My sister goes back to school soon and I have job training starting on the 1st so we don’t have a lot of time.

I haven’t been to Cedar Point in ages and I am super excited. I love roller coasters, though I don’t really love being outside. It’s going to be super hot out, but I’m busting out some shorts and a lightweight tank top. I just have to make sure to hydrate and coat myself in tons of sunscreen. I burn like crazy unless I am completely covered in SPF like a million. We have a ton on hand, my sister burns pretty badly too, so I should be good.

I just need to make sure to find a bag that’s perfect for carrying everything for everyone. I used to have a bag perfect for this, but I’m not sure where it is or if it’s still around here. I might have gotten rid of it, not on purpose, but some of my bags got messed up when our basement flooded a few years ago and I had to pitch them. I’ll have to see.

I hope you get to have some fun this week too! You can find me on Twitter, @kleffnotes, on my kleffnotes YouTube channel, I write for The Nerdy Girl Express and run their Snapchat, thenerdygirlexp, and I post recipes on the iZombie Support Group site.

You See I Have This Fanfic Idea

Hi Internet People,

As you might now I am not the most experienced fanfic writer. I have written some here before. I was working on an iZombie fanfic with Jonathan from iZombie Support Group for a while, but we never wound up finishing it. I did sort of flesh out how I would have ended the story, but I didn’t type it up anywhere. I used to daydream about possible Buffy the Vampire Slayer plots, I still occasionally think about those stories I made up, but I never wrote them for others to see. I created a vampire character who was connected to Spike and Drusilla. Her backstory was super random and I kind of gave her super intense powers, but there were limitations to keep her from basically going crazy in Sunnydale. If you get bored and want to know more about her I could write up some sort of character profile. I made her up in middle school so she’s not the best character ever.

Okay, so after babbling about my sort of background in fanfic here’s the actual story I’m thinking about. I love Wynonna Earp and Jessica Jones, both of these women are kick butt, strong women, who can hold their liquor. I feel like they would get along together and I really want to see them interacting. I’ve been bouncing around an idea for the two of them meeting through a crazy turn of events. I want to try my hand at writing this fic, but I’m curious if people would actually want to read it.

If I started posting periodic fanfic things on here would you check them out? It’d be all about Jessica Jones and Wynonna Earp, and I might even do some poll the readers stuff, if I feel comfortable enough with the characters. I think working with these characters would help me build up my fiction writing skills. I’ve been reading The Fangirl Life by Kathleen Smith and there’s a chapter all about fanfic, which made me think about writing the stuff I’ve been thinking about. I’ll talk more about her book later this week, just as an fyi.

Let me know what you think about my fanfic plans in the comments or on Twitter, @kleffnotes. You can find me on my kleffnotes YouTube channel, I write for The Nerdy Girl Express and run their Snapchat, thenerdygirlexp, and I post recipes on the iZombie Support Group site.
