What you did today?

Recommended Posts

Came to work at 7:15. The nightshift was done at 9:50, now it's 9:59 and I've basically done all the hard work for the day. Just the arrivals to sort out as they come. 

 

**** me, I'm so bored already...

Watch porn ? It always provides some form of elixir  to boredom :sweat:

Ehh, it's a company computer, I don't want the techdepartment asking me why I'm watching latex transgender midget porn on the work computer. :p

It's a total buzzkill :p

It might be because smartphones hate my skin, but I'm very much faster with T9 than my workphones (Samsung Galaxy and iphone). It's also nice to be able to actually put your phone in the pocket of your pants comfortably. I only really need a phone to call and text on in my private life. I basically wear carpenters pants at work, and then it's not really an issue, but wearing jeans and trying to get that brick in the pocket?

If my boss didn't actively force me to use a smartphone at work I wouldn't touch it.

I'm overly excited today, one of my good friends from JHB is coming down to CPT for an Amazon partner conference tomorrow. He is going to stay with me and he loves Ribs so Im taking him tonight to this famous Rib restaurant. Then tomorrow night he is also staying with me and we going to go out partying where I can show him the numerous bars and cool eateries in the area I live in  🍹🥂 I am loving CPT but I miss my friends in JHB who I have known for 15-18 years so its going to be great spending time with him

Animal control showed up to my house today to return a missing dog which I'm assuming is the previous owner's so spent the last hour or so trying to track that person down just in case animal control stops looking. The person I got the house from was a flipper but I contacted him and the agent listed for the time the house was listed before that in the hopes they had his number or email or something and could get in touch with him. No luck tracking down the person themselves but I don't want to give up just yet. My dogs are my friends and I'd hope someone would put in the extra effort to see my pets returned to me.  

Other than that my new PC was finally completed last night so that's fun. I don't know what to play first even though I have absolute negative zero free time. So long sleep, even though I already barely knew ye.

Got new glasses.  Not sure if the change is actually correct or the doctor was wrong as one eye is so blurry it makes vision a pain.  Always love any small change to lenses, adjustment period always sucks.

I had a  very entertaining evening with my friend last night, we went on a major pub crawl and ended up eating an amazing Tapas restaurant call La Parada. We shared multiple dishes and I had the best Beet Short Ribs I have eaten in my life...yes thats a bold statement but I genuinely believe it. I mentioned this before but its so convenient living in the heart of CPT because Im basically at the nexus of 3 major streets that have  this plethora of bars and restaurants so we dont need to drive or Uber we just walk :thumbsup:

45 minutes into my workday and I've done all the things I need to do. Now it's a seven hour wait for things to do, it's highly likely that I'll get ordered to work overtime since a yard jockey colleague has "planned" to call in sick today. Not looking forward to it... Way, way to tired to be driving safely.

 

Also, I've got a bad hankering for some cyberpunk pnp.  We've played alot of Mutant Chronicles and D&D5e(🤮) lately, and while it's possible to do some light cyberpunking in Mutant Chronicles it's tantamount to WH40k so high-tech stuff is basically a big nono.

Sitting at work 7 hours not doing anything is pure hell for me. Torture and depression awaiting. I'd rather quit.

Trying to. 

I just need to either get fired, or get a loan from a bank so that I can get a licence for lorries and heavy trailers, then I'm set.

 

Edit; The coffee machine here has a counter on how much it fills in ml each time, thank you dear employer for informing me that I drink 300ml of coffee each hour.

Dang! 10oz of coffee per hour! I loves me some coffee (with cream and sugar) but I top out at 2-3 regular size cups.

Haha! If I were going to a pnp session the same night, it'd be coffee continously from 6am to 2pm XD

I do have me some milk in my coffee though. I have to supplement with some sugar at work aswell, 'cuz the coffee isn't very good...

Tonight and tomorrow I'm getting hit by Tropical Storm Barry... for the second time in a week! Oh well, it's just rain. At least this far north. The folks down river might have a harder go of it.

Continuing my long term project... printing out Sith Acolyte armour pieces.

C0IA2MdUQAAeoQ3.jpg.fdb1f56d41ea591872263bff168836c9.jpg

 

That.. is the eventual goal.  Probably going to take 200-300 hours of printing to get everything done. Then fix pieces together, paint it with epoxy resin, some spot putty, sand it down, prime it, sand it, repeat a few times, then paint it all and fix up webbing and such to hold the armour together when worn.

However, in the middle of printing out one piece from the thigh set of armor, 19 hours in , about 10 minutes before it finishes...the piece tips over and the final few layers get printed in midair spool.

I'm pondering on whether I can just tidy that edge up, and play it off as battle damage once everything is painted...

I have had a good and relaxing weekend, I had to work yesterday for most of the day and today Im doing some documentation and customers pipeline updates for 2 hours or so

I  also cooked some mince for weekly  lunch, watched various news channels  and some entertaining series on Showmax and Netflix. Monday is looking good from a work perspective 🤓

Guys  the final for the Cricket World Cup is on. Its New Zealand vs England and England really could win, they need 72 from 60 balls which  is very achievable and they on 170/4 :dancing::facepalm:

For those that dont follow cricket we obviously must support England...we dont want NZ to win.

Can they tie or both lose? 'Fraid I don't know the rules.

What an exciting final, they tied so now they have a super over to see who hits the most boundaries....its very unusual to tie so Im 100 % sure how the super over works
