Received a 8lb bundle of joy in the form of 27 Chikara DVDs this morning. Was left a post office slip in my letterbox yesterday that it couldn't be delivered at noon and would therefore be available for collection for the next week. Got up specially an hour and a half early so I could pick it up and maybe watch part of one to get my fix. (Didn't work. I arrived at work all of twenty minutes early and had barely enough time to check the order against the box - all there. [As an aside, absolutely caned by postage. $60USD - I could have ordered another three DVDs for that.])
Have had a manic week - boss went down to Antarctica via Venzuala, he's out of the office for three-four weeks. First week of the month is fuel invoices and the program was spitting out 'duplicates' - regos that have been put into the system twice. Unlike what you'd imagine when seeing the word 'duplicates', the regos it spat out had one letter in common - the first one. They were so completely different it was like the computer was saying 'ABC123 IS THE SAME AS AZXYWV'. Then when we got smart and deleted ABC123 completely, since it wasn't used, the computer came back with 'NU-UH. AZXYWV IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS AFG890. AND IF IT ISN'T YOU'RE STUFFED.' Which basically meant we were stuffed.
Somehow between a complete reboot of the system and three very expensive phone calls to a cruise ship near the South Pole it decided to work. Ergo Jess is stapling and stuffing behind me. Glory.
Made rainbow soda cake on Monday, just to try to cheer people up after the realisation of the shitstorm the system plunged us into. Unfortunately no pictures of after it was cooked as it looked like...badness...and nothing of when it was cut because I forgot to bring my camera, but it was awesome. Sweet tie-dye colourings, nice texture if a little moist, plus chocolate icing makes everything better. Plus, having no egg in it meant the resident allergic IT guy could have cake. Deeper colouring next time, 'cause there's definitely going to be a next time.
I also really want some stuff from www.mcphee.com . Toast wallet, anyone?
