The Jazz, Wendover, and Another Weekend Gone Blogs - JenJo MySpace Blog

Shared via AddThis

Ok so the weekend isn’t over yet, but... it sounded good in the title?  Right?
Lance and I went to a Jazz autograph party last week.  It was super fun!  We bought this really nice Jazz ’07 - ’08 team plaque for them to sign for us, and an AK 47 jersey that Lance gave to his dad.  What sucked was my 2 favorite players didn’t show up!  Memo was sick, and Korver just had his birthday, and was probably hung over, or maybe family was in town...who knows.  It was still fun though!  Nicest people?  Andrei Kirilenko, and Jerry Sloan.  They wanted to chat, and they smiled asked how you were, and thanked us for coming out.  OMG!  Shocking!  On the other hand, it was pretty much obvious that Matt Harpring did not want to be there.  Kind of made me feel bad.  He even signed over Deron Williams’ picture on my plaque!  WTF is that about?!  Poor guy, probably wanted to spend the time with his family.
Unfortunately, of all the players that showed up, we didn’t get Deron Williams’ signature.  The time was up before we could get into his line.  Sadness!  I know!  It’s all good though.  There’s always next year!  We got tickets for the Playoffs this year, and season tickets for next year as well.  We ? the Jazz!  ?
So there was a Jazz game on Friday (yesterday), in which the Jazz blew out the Clippers 101 to 121.  And that’s without Okur and Brewer playing at all, and Kirilenko only played half the game!
After the game we went to Wendover, and partied it up.  Wasn’t as much fun this time as the previous time we went, but that’s ok.  We stayed the night up there, and drove back today.  It’s always nice to get away for a little while.  I just prefer to go somewhere where I can actually do something.  I’m not I can’t gamble.  Nor do I really want to.
Tomorrow is the first "Family Dinner" at my mom’s house.  It’s something we’re going to try to do every Sunday from now on.  Tomorrow my mom is making Lasagna.  I am so excited, that’s my favorite!  Maybe when Lance and I get our own place we can host the "Family Dinner."  That would be cool.  Have a little party.  Rockband it up!  Holla!
Until next time: Don’t get sad, get GLAD!  ?

What a GAY Night Blogs - JenJo MySpace Blog

Shared via AddThis

So I got home from work yesterday, at 6, as usual.  Freaking long drive...  anyway...  Lance was really tired and wanted to lay down for a bit.  Well guess how long "a bit" turned out to be?  All night.  Yeah, it sucked.  What a crappy day.
Tonight I have bunco, but I don’t want to go.  I’d rather go to the Jazz vs. Lakers game.  But Lance, planning on me going to bunco, probably already asked someone else to go with him.
One more thing to gripe about...  don’t call me "sweetie"  "honey"  "cutie"  "babe" or anything else GAY like that, unless you’re my husband.  It’s condescending, and it pisses me off.  Thanks.

Dear Sierra Blogs - JenJo MySpace Blog

You’re my best friend, and I care about you more than I think you realize.
You’ve been really depressed and down on yourself.  I feel really bad, and I don’t really know how to help.  But the things I have tried to do to help you seem to just be taken for granted, and/or not really cared about.  I don’t know if you just want attention, or if you really don’t want my help.  I’m getting the feeling that you want to be depressed, and I get that idea because you’re not really doing anything to really help yourself.
When you first talked to me, yes I was at work and I couldn’t give you 100% of my attention, but the ideas I gave you, you just shot down.  Instead of being willing to give it a try, you don’t think they’ll work.  Well how can you know without trying?
I invited you over the other night, and instead of saying "thanks for the invite" you said "now you tell me" and that you were going to a movie.  It’s as if you expect me to invite you to things...  but I don’t see you inviting me to anything.  Sure I live 20 miles away, but we both have cars.  All you have to do is pick up the least 20 minutes in advance.  I’ll admit, I do need to get better at this too...
So I’m out of ideas, so all I can do now is sit back and wait for you to be my friend again.  Yeah, you’re probably a little offended at that, right?  You think your friends abandoned you, right?  Well look again.  ’Cause I’m still here.
Love, Jenn

New Job! Blogs - JenJo MySpace Blog

Shared via AddThis

Ok I lied.  I don't have a new job... just a new position!  :)  I finished my first official week yesterday (yes, I only work in the office Mon - Thurs, aren't I lucky?!).  I feel like it went really well.  I realized that I know more about set-up of projects than I thought I did, and problems that seemed super foreign were a breeze to fix!
For those of you who don't know already, I am now the "Lead Checker" or "Manager of the checking department" or "Quality Assurance" etc.  I don't really like the "manager" one, because I'm currently the only checker.  So I guess I'm managing myself?  When we get new checkers I will be in charge of them, though.
Dana (my boss) and I had a meeting yesterday to see how my first week went, and to give me a real direction to take my new position into.  I know most of you don't understand my job whatsoever, but for those of you that do... 
I will be trying to stop specing errors.  We'll see how that goes.  But my plan is to track them by PD.  Maybe a certain PD always specs a certain point wrong.  If they spec the same point wrong 2 or more times, Dana will write them to notify them about it, so maybe they can clean up their specing.  Also, extra points spec'd differently on Stubs than they are on Banners.  I don't understand why they don't just copy from the banners... but whatever.
I will also be keeping track of faxed edits that are errors on our part.  If they faxed an edit of something they'd like to change, or a point they'd like to cut, that's fine.  We can't predict when they will do that.  But I want there to be absolutely 0 errors on our part.  That's the goal.  We'll see if we can reach it!
Lol... I just read through my blog, and I kind of sound like a politician rambling off their ideas for a better America.
? Until next time!
