    See, and I LOVE the ikea layout. I like the path, and getting to see stuff. I don't generally have problems finding shortcuts, so on the rare occasion I'm in a hurry I can just skip ahead. But I like the wandering path on the floor!

    A friend emails me a wishlist of tango music; most of which i don't have and says can I download it for her..WTF! er no; you have a PC and an internet connection, do it yourself.

    Post-exam weigh in...only 77.5kg. Could have been a lot worse, all things considered.

    Back on the weightloss track.

    Worst shift ever.

    Problem customer one: Stupidest [witch] ever. Promotion tag says 2 [brand] 60g bars for $3. She's picking bars up from all over the chocolate section, demanding to know whether each one is included. When each one inevitably isn't, she whines, and complains that it's all too hard, and that she'd never have this problem in a supermarket. Well guess what, love? The supermarket's shut, which is why you're here. And if you read the sign, and stopped picking up 90g [competitor] bars, then everything would be fine! You can't just expect things to be on sale when they don't have a promotion ticket in front of them.

    Problem customer two: Drunk. Wants to know where Grey street is, and picks up a street directory. Rips street directory in the process. Asks me where Grey street is. No suburb, just Grey street. I don't bloody know. Go away.

    Problem customer three: Her boyfriend sends her in to pay for his petrol. I'm making coffee. She says he's done, and leaves the money on the counter. Then she just walks out. I look at the computer...he's put $50 in...she's paid $30. Great. Complicated paperwork.

    Problem customer all: Everyone and their dog rocking up at 11.50pm, when I simultaneously have to count and close both tills, and do the settlements. And also wanting coffee at the same time.

    Too stressful.

    Interview tomorrow. First stage of nerves going on: whining. I don't wanna do an interview tomorrow. I don't wanna get all dressed up. Don't wanna don't wanna don't wanna!

    At least you get to wear your fancy, new, more expensive, perfectly fitting, very flattering suit. :)

    Come home at 11pm. It's roughly maybe 18C outside. Housemate has the aircon on.

    It's too cold for this! She doesn't even have it on a timer, which means that it would have just gone on all night.

    What a ridiculous waste of electricity.

    I downlaoded some free software to copy a dance film recorded from TV - originally on VHS then copied over to DVD...but its a limited version and doesnt do what I want plus a few glitches of its own; the second attempt the sound fails, and its limited to 5 minute cilps....then
    a memory stick doesnt read on my mac. anyone had this? do memory sticks stop working on macs if they are used with a PC?

    have bit the bullet and paid for the software package....

    okay how do I find my signature to change it; Its going to be this:

    “Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”

    Have been awake since 6am when my brother called. Normally I wouldn't have answered, but his wife is super-preggers (as in, due the 27th) so I thought it could be News. Nope.

    Grumblecakes.

    hmmm...I just have to hover above my avatar....can you report this in either staff msgs or in the new software thread so that admin sees it?

    It's been reported in the forum software thread. Most users don't have the option. Mods do. For some reason (IIRC), a test-user did have the option there.

    Non-admins, non-mods, do not have the ability to add or modify their signature....or rather, still haven't heard a non-admin/non-mod user report they have access to it. It's been reported multiple times in the software thread...with a link provided insturcting how to change the permissions to fix the problem. No response or change, as yet.
