the only way to express myself is this:
There, I feel better now.
Why am I in such an “arrrgh” mood today?
- Work has been driving me up the wall. Considering my height I think I am about to hit the roof real soon.
- We have a new member in our team whose whole and sole purpose in life is to surreptitiously read what other people are doing on their comps. If she gets noticed while doing the above mentioned activity, she doesn’t care. Nothing deters her from her favourite activity. Dirty looks, raised eyebrows, minimising windows- nothing works. If only she would do her work with such one-pointed concentration… I think that in the two weeks that she has been with us, she has joined to ranks of this other colleague whose sole purpose of coming to work is to listen in when people talk of the phone and invite herself into conversations she is not invited to. I think we need to give these two a few projects together, it is guaranteed to produce no results but it will be such fun to watch.
- I have been trying and trying to add a box.net widget to my blog, it just doesn’t work. Box.net has gone and revamped itself. Its all sleek looking and all that now. And that’s really nice. The only problem is that this new sleek look doesn’t work! I have been at it for two weeks. If that’s not persistence, what is? In other news reagrding my over enthusiasm to interact with technology and to make it work I have gone and opened an account with Feedburner. That’s about the end of my story with Feedburner. There is an account there and an account with wordpres. Neither seems keenn on integrating with the other. I have spent 35 minutes of prime time at work trying Feedburner again today and now I think I am ready to throw in the towel.
- The office has acquired a brand new shiny coffee machine. None of us know why. The last one was just fine. They keep saying the markets are down and business is slow. I think they all lie. If business is slow, why are we wasting money of coffee machines we don’t need? Anyway, the only reason the new coffee machine has made it to my list of reasons for arrrgh, is because it makes the worst coffee known to mankind. The tea is no better. In fact the tea almost tastes like the coffee and since the coffee tastes bad, the tea is as bad (or worse). I have got into the routine of making a cup of coffee/tea, taking a sip or two, pulling a face, draining the cup in the sink and then making another one in the vain hope that the next one would miraculously be better. So not only do I not get any coffee/tea I am also burdened with the guilt of wasting 2 cups in the morning and 2 in the evening.
