My carpets are getting cleaned tomorrow morning! I'll take any improvement I can get, but I have secret hopes that it will be a truly miraculous change.

This is the trait I have been working on overcoming, and I don't want to lend any more credence to the idea of self-fulfilling prophecy.

Funny aside though: sometimes I'll play a silly little game in the car: the next song that comes on relates to (insert whatever event I want it to describe.) On my way to my 2nd interview, I turned on the radio and We Are the Champions was in the middle of playing, so I said "OK, the NEXT song is my omen song."

Next song was Tom Petty--"Baby even the losers, get lucky sometimes."

:lol: Have you even known such a weirdo who isn't afraid to admit it?

That actually sounds like a fun game! I might have to use that one for road trips. I usually create mad-libs in the car. ;) Heh.

The condo sold, the condo sold, drinks for everyone on sweetwater today, the condo finally sold!
It's been a year. A year! Gotta love this economy.

:happy dance:

I have wrestled with the stinkin time zone debacle on my citrix server farm for a couple weeks now. It's been like having one last rat in the basement. It's there, you know because of the chewed boxes and the pee and the turds...

Sometimes users would login and get the right time. Sometimes not. Maddening. But today I found almost all of the solution, deleting some of the wrong entries, adding some of the missing ones. But the best I could do was one hour off on one of the servers.

Just a little while ago, the guy that works for me found reference to a registry entry that looked suspiciously like a recent malware attack suffered by this machine. We replaced the bogus reference with the correct one and all is well.

It works!

It works for admins and civilians, for rdp and ica, for same time zones and different time zones. I'm so happy I could spit.

I have tendonitis!! :jig:

Why is that a happy thing you ask? Well because it means that I DON'T have carpal tunnel, and therefore don't need to have expensive owwie tests and surgery. I'm so excited! Wooo

:D :D :D

Got a phone call from a real estate agent today.
I had applied to rent a property, and of 27 applications ... they picked ME!

I offered more money. $155 to 170 per week - still very cheap for the market and location.

Since I got back I have been staying at my mum's place, which has been okay but kind of cramped.
My new place is a one bedroom maisonette made by dividing an old 1920s art deco place, with polished floor boards, with a lot more space that I am used to, in an excellently convenient location.

Photos will follow in due course.

You are paying less for your maisonette than I am paying to rent a room in a house (sob)

Clodfobble 10-01-2008 01:06 PM

Yeah, that's about what an efficiency or a crappy one-bedroom apartment would go for around here.

I used a sick day (I do feel like crap), slept in, drugged up and went to surprise my kid for lunch today. I felt like a giant in the lunchroom. I got to meet some of her friends, including her new best friend who seems like a really nice little girl. I also got an earful from the boy sitting across from us about how his girlfriend wants to hold his hand all the time. :lol: It was a riot. I wish I worked closer so I could do it more often.
