That does seem like a sod... Maybe the people who fixed it didn't fix it properly and you can demand either a refund or they fix it for good?

Maybe. I have no idea how to figure out if it was something that was their fault without taking it back to them though... I'm pretty hopeless with anything even mildy technology-related (see earlier posts about wrecking ipods, mp3 players and phones).

So with this new game release of Catalysm this week, I took the opportunity back in September, when I spied that copies curiously seemed to be in stock, to pre-order the collector's edition off Amazon. Knowing it was November/December release I was happy to let that sit in the pipeline and not concern me, unless an e-mail from Amazon came back saying their shipment of CE's from Blizzard wouldn't match their pre-order numbers. A rule of thumb I'd heard of these online pre-orders, is that the retailers will get the copies multiple days in advance of release date, allowing for shipments to reach the clients on the release day to competitively match what they could do if they walked to a local store and got a copy off the shelf.

Yesterday, with the midnight release of 6/7th Dec impending, I get an e-mail. Not that it had been dispatched. No. Rather, a payment issue. That the debit card I'd placed my order with in September, had since expired. *facepalm* Would a system that either a) periodically frequently checks if a pre-order still had a valid payment attachment, or b) assess a valuable desired product would not likely to get its order cancelled, and charge anyway - be too difficult to construct, hnn?

So today I get the statement it was dispatched around 4pm, and now the challenge of getting it to my place by abouts the coming weekend when I'll be returning from uni, falls to Royal Mail. And apparently Amazon had a sterling idea to ship out of Greenock Inverclyde - somewhere I vaguely believe to be near Glasgow and no doubt buried in 5ft of snow right now, with thousands of abandoned vehicles by the sides of the motorways blocking the route.

I suppose it's a hollow rant given I'm not at the package's destination for the better part of a week, but egh, still baffling it took them til now to remind me I needed to update a debit card number.

OpenOffice is insisting that when I say 0.1990 I actually mean 0.2. Which means I have to copy-paste my raw spreadsheet, and fiddle around with the tabling and OLE nonsense. Rounding off decimals isn't even in the autocomplete list, so I have no idea why it's doing that.

In format->cell, you can change the number of significant digits shown. You need to increase it to 4 decimal places.

This is in Writer. Typing the string 0.1990 into a table cell auto-corrects it into 0.2, for no apparent reason.

One side is intermittent depending on how you hard you squeeze it. Also, I had a headphone like that. I'd used a soldering iron on one side of it, and the other was fading too.

My wallet is missing. This frightens and angers me because my ID and debit card were in there (along with the last bit of cash I possessed). I need that ID to board the plane to see my family for the first time in four years. Oh yeah, and the plane ticket's already bought and paid for - it was my parents' Christmas present to me. This is why I'm angry.

I've turned my house upside down looking for it. I called the last place I knew I had it (which, conveniently, was the last place I went before discovering it was missing) and they haven't had a lost wallet turned in. I literally do not know what to do. This is why I'm frightened (it scares the bejeezus out of me when I can't even fake like I know what to do).

On the bright side, now my day-to-day troubles seem insignificant. :(

Do you have some other form of ID lying around? A passport? Driver's license? If so then I think it would be relatively simple to get a new ID. How long do you have until your flight? Try to find out those details. Perhaps the ticket's date can be changed. If you're in a foreign country, contact the local embassy. If you don't have any other ID, I'm not exactly sure what you're supposed to do, but surely there is a government office you can call.

Don't forget to cancel your debit card as well.

I asked you several times about how you want me to assemble that damn press. And now that it's finally finished you come and say that I assembled it wrong. WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T YOU TELL ME EXACTLY HOW YOU WANTED THAT THING TO BE WHEN I ASKED YOU ABOUT IT? And why didn't you give me any kind of blueprint for this?
You are the teacher. Is it seriously too much to ask that you actually know something about the assignments you give us? And could you please share some information about assignments with other teachers when you know that you won't be at the workshop for a week because you are in some kind of a course? It's very frustrating to work on a project when nobody has any idea about what to do.
I actually thought, that I would get papers that are worth something from here. But right now, I highly doubt that. And because of this I will not apply for any further courses here, and my review of this course for the employment agency will not be good.

This morning, I woke at a leisurely 1030, stretched a bit, remembered a dream about wild passionate sex with a voluptuous secret agent (TO SAVE THE WORLD) and wiped the sleep from my eyes as I drank a tall, cold, delicious glass of OJ. I made a sandwich, nay, a temple of taste, containing not less than 5 pieces of bacon, two spoonfuls of fresh salsa, an egg perfectly fried (over medium bitches), folded between a thick slice of tuscan rosemary bread, which, I must mention, was all fried in a seasoned cast iron skillet that's been collecting bacon grease for a week. Oh, and hashbrowns. Golden, crispy, delicious hashbrowns.

So there I was, ready to eat this Homeric Ode to Taste and Allthings Good, at about 1145, watching the sun lazily stretch across my apartment, when I remembered I have a 1215 lunch meeting with my boss.

Guess whats not in my belly right now? That's right.

I miss all the human contact I've been lacking.
First off it starts as me thinking about how I miss my family so much: I haven't seen them for about two months now and I'm used to going down about twice a month. Hugs from friends are wondeful but when I'm feeling like this and can only think about how I miss my brother, sister, Mum and Dad they really don't help. Talking to my Dad on the phone didn't even help today: All I could think about was how much I wanted to cuddle him and how I had to hide the sounds of me crying from him because I don't want him to be upset.
And then I think about how all this would be fine if I at least had a special someone to cuddle, and I'm in a pretty shit situation on that front too: I had a girl I was sort-of seeing about a month back, but she'd just broken up with her first long-term boyfriend and, although I was over my last girlfriend, I wasn't over the relationship (if that makes sense?), so we decided to take things one step at a time and see how we felt abouth things and to not get our hopes up because neither of us really knew what we wanted at that time. Well, we both figured out exactly what we wanted at the exact same time, so imagine my disappointment when I realised that I really like this girl and really want to be with her and then she tells me that she doesn't want a relationship right now. And now imagine my soul-crushing despair as on Saturday I realise I am, in fact, hopelessly in love with this girl and she, thinking I'm over her (well, to be precise, thinking that I managed to not allow myself to fall for her in the first place) tells me how smitten she is with this lovely young gentleman who (I have to admit) is absoloutly wonderful. And imagine how all I want to do is cry when she tells me all the things that she finds so amazing about him and how I remember that she once said these things about me.
And then when I think about all that I think how it wwould all be fine if only I could see my family...

And then I realise that even I had both of those things, I still wouldn't be fine because, according to the councelor, I have guilt-related depression stemming from an extreamly traumatising experiance and a strange inability I seem to have for feeling compassion towards myself. Fuck. I'm going to hug Jimmy instead and cry into him. (Jimmy is my favourite stuffed toy from my childhood)
