Random thing you loathe right now.

Two things at one this morning:

- Our refrigerator isn't getting cold enough. Moved dial to colder to see if that fixes it. I hope it's not dying on us.

We had that happen on our fridge a few weeks back (on Christmas Eve, so no chance of getting someone out to look at it). The freezer section was still working OK, and it turns out, something was blocking an intake or something in the fridge section. After cleaning it out, it started working just fine.

I would also clean out the condenser coils on the back of the fridge. When those get gunked up, they're less efficient.

Already thought of the condenser coils. Thanks, though.

Repairmen came by and it's going to cost some cash, but not as much as buying a new fridge. Only problem: we have to be without a fridge for two days. Borrowing an extra cooler from a friend tonight.

Supposed to have seven people on a shift per our contract. Wednesdays right now we normally have five.

Today we have three. People know we're short, still f*ck us by calling out regularly.

Currently filling in as supervisor. Slowly going crazy.

Indecisiveness, crushing, depressing mood swings, and an inability to let go of things.

When coffee doesn't do its job in the morning, and I end up staring stupidly at the computer screen for an hour.

Man, that sounds like a typical night of Team Fortress 2 on a pub server.

75 minute powerpoint presentation. 58 slides, each one completely crammed with text and illegible diagrams. Nowhere to sit.

Did the presenter read each slide to you? That's the best, when the presenter reads the slides. Word. For. Freaking. Word.

That's the best. Saves on eye strain.

That's the best. I get to absorb it while sleeping.

I had a professor, who strangely looks like the doctor from Far Cry 3:

who all he did was read from the book in a flat monotone voice every class period after having assigned that chapter as reading the week before. I had him for two different classes, both programming related so they were both rather dry text books. Talk about sucking all the fun out of learning C++

After 4 decades or so of eating solid food, you'd think I would have learned to chew it before swallowing. Apparently that's a lesson that just just won't stick. Unlike the bite of chicken that I swear is about to pierce my esophagus right now.

You probably shouldn't have stopped to type that.

Also, it's best to pick the bones out, before swallowing the chicken whole.

No bones; just a chewing failure. Happens waaaay too often. And whether or not I'm using my thumbs doesn't seem to help me swallow

I loathe writing my own review. I just can't do the self-brag and self-criticism thing in a way that I would share with others.

My dad has always complained about doing those. My guess is that they don't really care about what you write. I think the task is there to force self-reflection and self-criticism. Still, it sucks, and I do not envy you. I hope I never have to do them.

I loathe buying popcorn chicken and midway through eating the first bite remember my horrible previous experience making every bite I take put fear into my heart. (KFC breaded a broken piece of bone...)

And I'll remember this for the rest of my life. Terrifying.

I HUG YOU

This is a first world problem, I get it, particularly in light of how fortunate I am to have a job and a job I love to boot. But after receiving a letter of commendation from our government customer, and having a very good review, to get awarded a 1.5% raise because the company is trying to contain costs is depressing. I'm happy enough in my job that I'm not going to be looking for anything new, but to work hard, receive recognition of that hard work from those you support and then to not get any payout is disheartening.

Nagging colds. This just sucks. I cannot be the only person who would rather have a few days of utter bone crushing sickness over constant congestion, and a general run down feeling. This is going on a week now. I am not getting worse, but not really getting better either.

Symptomatic medication for the win. Hit that sh*t with ibuprofen and ephedrine round the clock.

So this week, the following happened:

1) Refrigerator died. Fortunately it didn't require replacement but was a $300-something repair. (Not counting all the food we ended up throwing out)

2) We were told we probably need to think about getting new tires for the car. I suppose that was inevitable, since we've never replaced the tires for this car yet.

3) Found out the average hot water heater is built to last 10-15 years. Ours is 22. That may explain why we don't really get enough hot water for two showers in a row any more.

Now I'm just trying to get through to the weekend without spending any more money. Argh.

Watermain break. Citywide Boil Water Advisories. And the stunning revelation about how many coffee-shops/restaurants use tap-water for everything.

whoops wrong thread...

random thing I currently hate.. replying to the wrong thread.. doh!

Neverending sinus headaches. Also, the drug store nearby was out of flu shots when I went; will have to try a the ones near my home instead.

fwp; The instructions for the first assignment in one of my classes are 11 pages long... oi this is going to be a busy term.
