I’m Not Drunk, You’re Just an Asshole

Maybe it wasn’t Bruce Campbell, maybe it wasn’t the Polkaroo, but someone said it, and that someone was me.

Sorry buddy, but I can quote myself, and I can quote myself well. I don’t even have to remember what I said.

Yay, Bots

At first I thought my Blackberry was going haywire (again), because from the other room I could hear it continually beeping, and I was beginning to get upset, because I did NOT want to go through the trials and tribulations of Rogers customer ‘service’ again to get it replaced.

The little tone that plays when I get an email is about 1 second long, and sounds like a doorbell. My phone was in my office, and from my kitchen, it sounded like there was a very impatient postman leaning on the doorbell, waiting to deliver a package, or a little kid wanting to know if his friend could come out to play. I was convinced my phone was dying. I was hoping that I was just incredibly popular, and that suddenly my friends had all decided to email me all at the same time.

I have 56 emails from an un-manned UPS device. Lovely. Good news? My phone is not broken. Bad news? I’m not as popular as I could have hoped.

That was…

… way too easy.

buh-bye!

buh-bye!

December

I haven’t posted that much lately. I’m finding it difficult (and annoying) to type alot through my blackberry.

Here’s a photo from my office christmas party. We played Rock Band in a bar, and this was our band. Clearly, we posed for the photo, as I was NOT just wearing my sunglasses inside a bar at two in the morning.

New office with new chairs!!!

My new office is clearly completely awesome. I can’t go in-depth about how great the setup is, or how awesome the wiring job is (it’s just amazing) because it would take three days and twelve pages to explain.

But here’s a brief video of me having fun, enjoying my new desk chair.

And here’s what our old Master Control now looks like. It’s even MORE ripped out at this point, but having worked there for over 3 years, I had to take a photo, no matter how cheesy:

Fight Club Channel???

Why does EVERYONE call it that! Then again, I don’t care what Telus calls us, so long as the fibre works, and we’ve never had a problem with it.

Psh, working all the time is easy.

I could seriously do it. I could have absolutley no life, and just go to work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. I would need to hire a laundry and grocery service, but I could do it.

In the past 5 days, I’ve worked 33 regular hours, plus 29 overtime hours. Today was only Tuesday.

I have a Grocery Gateway account, but I’ve never actually used it. I wonder if it works OK, or if it’s a pain in the ass. I can’t imagine what the produce would be like.

I took some photos of what Master Control looks like right now. We tore it apart. Now it’s a desk and 7 relatively empty server racks. There is still alot more ripping of cable to be done, but it’s much cleaner now than it was 2 days ago.
