More or less.


Work:
  • battling suppliers who I know are lying but they're obviously not aware of the fact I know or they think I'm stupid.
  • battling internals who want to keep polishing stuff until the heat death of the universe rather than risk taking the next step
  • attempting to create procedural history so that this doesn't actually kill me
  • trying to work out why a previously very happy and flexible person has become a rules lawyer
Health:
  • Not looking forward to dentist
  • Had a 4 hour headache today, couldn't find the paracetamol
  • Picked up the small daily exercise again. Have backslid by 15 situps
Other:
  • Listening to a lot of Pratchett audiobooks at the moment, preferably read by Briggs and containing Vimes. Vimes might be my hero.
  • Heading to Belgium for fruity beer in a few weeks
  • Can't get my piercings back in by myself after x-rays. Need to find somewhere to help that isn't full of teenagers.

"trying to work out why a previously very happy and flexible person has become a rules lawyer."

Someone has pointed out that they've been taken advantage of ? This happens to nice people quite a bit.

Something wrong on their end.  Maybe not with your project, but they're going into process to stall.

Kriek - the old fashioned sour kind. Framboise is too sweet for me.

So you are what people mean when they say women get unwanted attention online.

Now I understand.

Merekat, meet ammoniacal by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #11 Fri Apr 15, 2011 at 09:57:22 AM EST
ammoniacal, meet Mere.... say, wait, haven't you both been here for nearly 10 years?

Not condoning jerkdom, mind. by ambrosen (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Apr 15, 2011 at 10:11:24 AM EST
And re-reading, I realise ammoniacal was being more adolescent than I thought. What can I say? I'm just a little sheltered, is all.

It could always put a coat on, though. by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #14 Fri Apr 15, 2011 at 10:25:35 AM EST
Which would save us seeing the spots.

Something like that by Merekat (4.00 / 1) #18 Fri Apr 15, 2011 at 03:01:29 PM EST
Occasional flashing would be much more entertaining.

I never had you down as the sort of person who would have non-visible piercings.

Oh well - pub time.
