The past two days at work have been really hectic.

 

Yesterday I made a small change to work's website. This resulted in a chain-reaction of errors that undoing the change didn't fix. The product list pages and back end were totally borked. It took absolutely ages to fix - I tried clearing the cache, then researching the problem and testing some fixes for similar problems. After getting it half-working I needed to update all the code for the back-end (luckily this part was a simple as entering a line of code and hitting enter) which resulted in the whole site failing and buried in the error code was a mention of our secret sister/sub-company so I had to quickly redirect all traffic to Google (it was the first site that popped into my head). After re-applying all permissions (the ftp software didn't do this too well so I had to go into about 50 folders and apply it in all those as well). This partially fixed the site (the product lists came up with an error, but at least it didn't mention the other site - however the back end was working). After discovering the hidden secondary and tertiary caches I was able to delete them and re-cache/index everything. I also had to alter one line to stop it from failing like this again.

 

Today was a completely different piece of hassle. It was fine for most of the day, but the container of softshell fabric was late and didn't arrive until 4PM. The main loading bay was full because someone was moving into the business centre so we had to get in contact with our friends next door (who were all out at the time) to come back and let us borrow their loading bay. Then the truck was unable to park close to it (due to cars in the way) so we had to carry/drag rolls (really thick 60kg ones) across a car park and up onto the loading bay. At 4:45 I had to leave - I offered to stay, but they said that there was no point in me missing my train - and when I got to the station the train was unusually late. After finding nothing from the guy in the ticket office I quickly checked the Android Market and found an app which gave me everything I needed to know: my train (and the one after it) had been cancelled. Nice.

 

Hmm...there should probably be more paragraphs in there to split up the walls of text.

Hope you are ok now, sounded dodgy then.

 

Interview went quite well today. Got asked an interesting question.

 

"Are you offended by swearing?"

 

Said no, as i hear it all the time. Probably because all the office banter contains a lot of swearing.

I worked till 5am this morning, slept till 10, got up, copied the questions I couldn't do from the work I was doing the night before off Donna, handed in said work, then went back to bed at 11am.

Slept till 4pm.

 

Went to my Groups, Rings and Fields tute at 4:30. First time this term any of my tutors have genuinely applauded my work - he said that it was really good and thorough (this was because I had an epiphany about rings, that stunned and made me do the whole sheet really well). There was blood in my mouth, because I had been biting my lip all week until that point.

 

I was great in the tute too. Answered his questions about prime factorisation really well. Came out at quarter to 6, had dinner in hall at 6.

 

Fannied about in my room and Kat's room for several hours. Put on Easy by Joanna Newsom, and my life was made when Laura, famously uncultured and philistine despite doing French and Spanish, said "This is really nice, what is this?". I gave her The Kick Inside.

 

Went to YoSushi at half 10, and because they were closing at 11, the guy gave us a 25% reduction on everything. I crave YoRolls every time I think about food. Actually taste so stunning - it's like never having heard All Is Full Of Love, then hearing it. You're held.

 

Came back to college, and lay about for a pointless amount of time in Laura's room. Ate Dark chocolate, which I've discovered an appreciation for. A more complex, interesting taste than milk/white chocolate. Entertains my tongue.

So yesterday was a mantabulous day of frail nuns. :grin:

 

In le morning was some revision for my exam that took part later on in the day!

 

Brain and Mind exam, it went as well as it could've though there was no clock and the examiner turned up late and didn't even apologise!

 

she was scary. O___O

 

CUTTING TO THE CHASE!

 

I made up with Wigmor (WelshGamer) in the afternoon. We were both wearing our Up Badges. :D He is winsicles. An all round JUMBO BEAN! (this is a good thing)

 

We went to see Lee Mack. Who was extremely Spicy. Hilarious. I've not laughed like that since Nosepass. :yay:

 

ALSO FREAKIN' MOTHERS DAY OWLS WILL EAT YOUR MUMS AND DEVOUR THEIR SOULS!

 

do not buy them.

 

and finally, I rarely urinate while wearing shoes. :p

I'm listening to My Heart Will Go On and it gave me shivers. I also may have sung along to a bit of it/all of it.

 

I'm terrified.

 

Milk It by Nirvana just came on next though, so it's all alright. I feel restored.

Urgh, weird phone number keeps calling me. Three times each day. And I don't know what it iiiiis. Dad tried to get it blocked, but the phone service person said we'd have to go to the police first to show I'm being "stalked" by this number. O.o

 

How weird. Why can't they just leave me alone? =(

Redecorating my room, basically getting a new bed but my parents are taking the opportunity to put in a new carpet and paint. So I've spent most of the day dismantling my stuff and boxing things away. I never knew I owned so much shit, whats worse is that some of the most pointless things I keep I can't throw away. For example I found a certificate for a regional sports competition from year 7.. A 10 year old certificate that means bugger all (It was for 1st place ;)) but I've put it with other crap that I'm keeping.

 

I swear when I move out I'm either going to have to burn/lose/destroy half of it or my parents will have a loft full of my stupid stuff.

Arnie called ReZ today, and it was amazing. He got well stressed until he realised the truth and threw in an Arnie of his own.

 

I'm pissed off that I deleted it in error.

Knob! That was epic! I of course knew what and who it was straight away, but only realised to Arnie back halfway through the call. It was amazing though. Fucker for deleting it. I'd hoped you were filming it.

 

PS Only just seen the missed calls. Was downstairs as Claires dads birthday.

I know! I thought I'd taken a second of footage after stopping the video and deleted it. Turns out it was our encounter.

I got my brother in his room as well, also amazing:

 

Bro: Hello?

pr0: Howdy stranger! How are you?

Bro: Nob!

*Hangs up*

 

About a minute later...

 

Bro: Hello?

pr0: S'cuse me I have a few more questions if you don't mind.

Bro: Fuck off!

Ah man, would have been epic if you'd kept the recording EEVIL.

 

Got a phone call today from the company i had the interview with yesterday, didn't get the job. Hey, i'm not upset about it at all. At least they bothered to tell me, unlike Newport CC who don't think it is in their interest to tell me at all. Until i call them.

Got free admission to an education show thing on Saturday. Me and a colleague are going to scope out the rival companies as well as to take a look at our own stand. We were also going to offer to help pack everything away at the end of the day. On the way out of the building the owner of the company called us over and the conversation went like this:

 

Boss: You going to the education show on Saturday?

Us: Yeah, we're already booked and got our free tickets.

Boss: You fancy getting paid for the day?

Us: Sure. Do you need help packing up or something?*

Boss: Well someone is dropping a van off here Saturday morning and we need someone to drive it down. We're not sure the van we have is big enough so a spare would help. If you could drive it down in the morning and help us load the vans in the evening, we'll pay you from the time you leave untill when you get back. We'll start packing up at 3, so the rest of the day is yours to wander round the show.

Us: Hyper Win.

 

 

*We were going to help anyway.

 

High five for looking like we want to help and then getting paid for it! Don't even have to pay for petrol now since we're using a company van. Ace.

 

 

 

 

 

Also saw about 20 deers in a field on the way home. It was amazing.
