carnivale finale: good, and bad. biggest question unanswered: when will there be more, dammit. i have a cough again. i just knew this would be one of those lingery things! it does feel kind of good to be back at work though. i have to wrangle information out of HR as to how to cash in on the obscure counseling services they offer. i'm so suspicious of something like that, nigh unto paranoid. it's like, if i use this service, won't they put a big ol' red "crazy" dot on my file and move it to the front of the "potential layoffs" droor?

if you hate vapid questions about shopping, please ignore this. which wallet is better? the birdie one or the kitty one?

I like darker colors, so the kitty one.
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:00 am (UTC)
It also looks more functional... but neither would fit in a back pocket. :P
Dec. 1st, 2003 10:56 am (UTC)
The birdie one, definitely!
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:01 am (UTC)
I'm all about those colors and that style. Was it you that posted something from this webpage a few days ago? I can't remember who did!

Should there even be a question? THE KITTY ONE!

Also, ceasing the smoking will take care of that cough. ;) ::hugs::
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:02 am (UTC)
Yeah, I had stopped for like a week. Then I was being social and wanted to do the smoker thing outside with people and well, this is what I get for it. Stupid me!

*hug* :)

Call me shallow. I like the birdies.
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:11 am (UTC)
I will call you having good taste!
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:01 am (UTC)
The kitty one, but not because of the kitty.
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:06 am (UTC)
Oh but why!

I like the kitty. I love cats, soo...

Its also about the colors..simple, straightforward.

I guess it all depends on which one says YOU better :) Which one do YOU prefer?
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:11 am (UTC)
That's the problem. I prefer the aesthetics of one and the functionality of the other, and I can't. freaking. decide. :)

1) if the obscure counseling services are called an "Employee Assistance Program" or something similar, i guarantee it's totally confidential. if they gave you a handbook or some paperwork or something and you still have it, their number might be in it; otherwise, yeah, ask HR. they shouldn't ask you why you need it, and if it is, indeed, a confidential service, it's probably illegal for them to ask you anything about it. don't even say "counseling service", say "EAP" or something. those things usually offer a variety of services, which include but are not limited to counseling. this public service announcement brought to you by my ever-changing state of mental health.

2) the kitty one, duh! unless you really have a thing for the partridge family.
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:39 am (UTC)
1) Yeah, you called it. It's called an EAP. I need some sort of login they sent me in the mail which is no doubt in a pile somewhere in my room.

2) what's wrong with the partridge family? ;)

Ugh. I'm sorry you're still sick! I had my cough for a month, literally. I hope it's not the same. (I think I vote for birdie, but they're both cute.)
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:46 am (UTC)
I blame myself about the sick, really. I had a few guilty cigarettes (stupid) and have not been getting enough sleep from anxiety and stuff. But thank you :)
Dec. 1st, 2003 11:39 am (UTC)
Okay, MY opinion is that the kitty is cuter, but.

Flip a coin. If it's heads, buy the kitty. If tails, buy the bird.

If you hate the way the coin comes up, then you've learned something. :)

Dagnabbit I forgot to watch Carnivale. :(

I vote kitty.
Dec. 1st, 2003 01:24 pm (UTC)
Most definitely the birdie one. It's all about the style.
Dec. 1st, 2003 02:23 pm (UTC)
You asked for it...

ok, I can totally see the birdie working for a more retro outfit or if you're going for the middle school/high school cuteness thing. The kitty one is more elegant, while still holding on to the cuteness and innocence of the other. It might go for a more dressed up look. I'd consider which would fit your wardrobe better as a factor. Another thing... this is going to be in a purse or bag, yes? Think about which one would be more likely to make you smile when you pull it out. Then think about which one would be more likely to make other people smile when you pull it out. Whew. That's enough shallowness for me for today. ;)

Another thing... this is going to be in a purse or bag, yes?

That's ANOTHER thing - sometimes I like to carry my wallet in my back pocket, and neither would work for that. Grr. :) Thanks for your thoughtful answer... although I still can't decide ... maybe that means I shouldn't be spending the money!

unfortunately, the current question for Carnivale is not 'when will there be more' but 'will there be more', as supposedly HBO has not actually given it the Official Stamp of Renewal yet.

Of course, HBO let some really subpar series like Arli$$ and Mind of the Married Man run forever and a day, so we should be safe.

More unfortunately, the current rumor is that Carnivale if renewed won't be airing until very early 2005. :(
Dec. 5th, 2003 01:53 pm (UTC)
I was worried about that. I was thinking, how can they let the momentum die down? But this is the high-powered world of HBO I am sure they have more important shows that people can relate to (???) to air first.

I can't handle losing Carnivale and Firefly in one year!! :P
