There's an order
And another little order
Order order order order order order lunch.

Yesterday I discovered that I can run for longer in a pair of formal shoes with, admittedly, quite a low heel, only an inch or so, than I can in my sneakers. Not that this means much, it was only 100m or so, but I can't make that in sneakers without needing to stop to breathe.

Of course, I've lost some skin over my toes due to this silliness, but it was too hot to wear closed-toe shoes to work yesterday, and we won't get a non-stinky air conditioner for another 10 days. Work has decided that we'll wait for a non-stinky air conditioner in the office rather than suffer the stinky. My desk was one of the cooler spots in the front office that has a glass portal to the outside, and it topped 30 degrees.

Sooner or later I must go outside to see what heat damage will be made worse in my garden this week.

Grandpa is still in hospital with his busted hip, but Dad is back in Adelaide. At bridge last night he was grumpy about his fishing trip having been cancelled, and his shirt being creased due to having gone through Grandpas' washing machine, but vaguely cheerful, even prior to winning both their matches, which I interpret to mean Grandpa is recovering as well as can be expected.

Work has drama-llamas atm.

Here's a llama
There's a llama
And another little llama
Fuzzy llama
Something llama
Llama, llama, duck.

One day, this too shall end.

And on that day, I will not have to be anywhere, do anything, see anyone.

As you might be able to guess, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Cut for whiny, self-pitying arghs )

Anyone who needs me to do something more can get knotted. There are other capable people in this world, including yourselves, people! *sigh* Ask me after the ANC (bridge Nationals) - I'll be able to help you then. As long as it doesn't involve weekends, because that'll clash with worktrip, DanceMania, worktrip.

She-Boss is pleased; I've stopped wailing that the world is going to end. The shipment of packing peanuts arrived this afternoon. It's MINE! MINE! ALL MINE!

Oh, and my singing teacher has got in first with a response to the 'I want a guitar' wail. If there's anyone out there who hadn't got around to responding yet, I'm sorry.

And last note for tonight:

I think that Workshop Guys' suggestion of singing a barbershop quartet version of 'neener neener neener' at He-Boss may, possibly, have its merits.

Oh Em Gee I loooove this new EFTPOS machine! Something that used to take enough time that I could update my journal whilst waiting just took, like, six seconds. From 60 to 6 over the weekend!

Only problem is the incessant beeping wot will drive me nuts soon.

Work had their carpets cleaned last night. I can't have my rolly chair mat back until it dries. *petulant face*

Something I've noticed? Sometimes people get really disoriented when you answer the phone with "Good afternoon!" at 10am. And if you say "Good morning!" at 11:27 am, the people in the states 1/2 hour ahead are often really careful to tell you that it's three minutes off being afternoon where they are. Todays' was very careful to let me know that although it was still morning where I am, it was still morning where she was, by three minutes. By the time she got to the point, it was no longer morning where she was.

Tomorrow I get a haircut. Yay.

Dude, when you send us a purchase order, I don't really need a copy of every single internal purchase order that the company has generated in order to get you to this point. I don't need to know how many divisions and business units and so forth it's had to go through. I just want to know where it has to go, who's paying for it, and what purchase order number I need to quote to make your life easier.

Each of those bits of paper has a different purchase order ID. I really don't want to know the internal numbers, just the one I have to quote so that you don't ring me up and complain. Make my life a little easier so that I can return the favour. Thanks.

Also: There are small people watching Shrek2 in the next room. I cannot go and watch it with them, for I am working. Oh, the agony.

Damned computer decided that, for some reason, it didn't like the printer. So, it de-installed all the printers installed on my computer. Then MYOB froze. Resetting the computer helped with those problems, but according to the data file I'm still logged onto MYOB, which I am not.

Blasted thing.

I want a stamp. I want a little rotate-y date thing on said stamp, and something that says 'Received'. I want a second stamp with 'Entered'. These are the two most common things I write at work, and I could replace them both with a stamp. A little less work, and I wouldn't have to keep pinching back pens from myself.

This un-caffeinated ramble has been brought to you by the letter 'i'

*answer phone* You don't speak English. Let me just transfer you...
*answer phone* You have hearing difficulties. Let me just transfer you...
*answer phone* You can't understand the question "Do you need help with one that you already have or one that you would like to get?" Let me just transfer you...
*answer phone* You hung up.
*answer phone* You called me 'sweetie'. Let me just transfer you to someone male...
*answer phone* You ask how I am. I ask how you are. Now, I ask where you're from and the purpose of the call. Advertising. No we don't want any and the only person who is authorised to change that decision is in a very important meeting with her mug of tea and a biscuit and can't come to the phone.
*answer phone* You know what you want and how much it costs. I like you. I *encourage* you.

Am developing a slight headache ringing people about their accounts. I think the 'best' one so far is the one where I rang the place up, got transferred to their accounts department, who told me that they didn't handle the accounts anymore (!) and I should ring this other place which is now head office and here is the number. The number they gave me was attached to a fax machine. After looking around in the white pages for a number, I rang the first number back, told their reception person what had happened, and got the right number, where I left a message, and have just been called back to fix everything up.

I thought this was slightly better than the people who need to take a message because they can't do anything while their entire system is down, or the people who keep their records in a separate office to where everything else is done so that they can't access them easily, or the people who just didn't answer the phone...

I have a lovely red rose in a vase on my desk. I picked it as I walked out the door this morning (Shock, horror! I walked not ran!) It is slowly opening - so far today it has made it from bud to semi-open.

There is also an electrician here, trying to fix things. Good luck to him, I say.

I am still folding bits of paper to send out the end-of-month accounts. About half way through. There are a lot of them.

For some utterly unknown reason, today my work computer decided it didn't have a thingy installed, and so therefore it wasn't going to attach to the work LAN. Internet access was fine. But I couldn't see a single other computer. Which meant that all the bits of information stored on other people's computers was impossible to access. Which meant that I couldn't do a single piece of work that involved a computer until the bits got fixed. Which didn't happen until other people finished THEIR morning's work. And so on...

AAAARGH! Just finished logging all these blasted yellow pieces of paper, for some reason when I opened it next after finishing, the key numbers are all scrambled. So I start fixing them and then the bloody computer tells me that something has stuffed up, and it'll backup. So it does. Then when I next open the damn thing, it has gone back past my last save to the one before. There is no backup, not even the autobackup, which I know is on, because I put it on.

So I go back and redo.

Then there's the people who fax us an order 5 minutes before the courier who comes by daily is due. And they expect it to be at their place tomorrow. There's always a large batch that comes in 45 minutes before, because that's when we tell people that they have to have it in by or we can't guarantee that it will go out on time. But there's also always one that comes in when we're going 'Good, we've got them all done, and the guy isn't here yet'.

Oh well, I'm going to my SO's parents' house for tea because they wanted us (I like them, they're so nice, even if she's a bit pushy and he's anal-retentive and a fussbudget). Food good.
