Fat Ash

Slept in, not feeling very motivated. Odd, because for the first time in a week I have a lot of work on my plate. I think I got to work about an hour later than usual. Made up for time I spent working at home last night.

No break room stop, I wasn't that hungry, and had stuff in my lunchbox. Made a tuna salad sandwich as part of getting ready for work, using two frozen slices of bread but salad from the fridge.

Updated the box which needed to be tested today (London manager leaving tomorrow) and it updated just fine but wouldn't get past the welcome screen. Emailed London manager, he gave me the clue I needed, which was adding a file to the USB drive which had let me boot the other unit (which he did not need to bring back with him).

Found time to call B of A. Once again, the app sent me to the wrong department, and when I was transferred to the right one I got a rep who wanted to argue, but she was happy to get her manager on the line, and once he heard the issue, he said he would figure out a way to refund the late fee. First person I talked to said she would reinstate the payment.**

Found lots of issues, ended up staying an hour late to finish. He wanted a second set of tests run that Boss had put together a couple of months ago, but frankly it was a waste of time because it is mostly a video format test, play every possible video format and make sure it works, except this box did not support half the formats. Lots of FAIL.

On my way home I stopped by the Official Hole and left it on Boss' desk.

The place they put the team is horrible. Too small, cramped, people are elbow to elbow and back to back and equipment is all over the place. Nice break room, though, if you like your break room to have a stripper pole and stage. The facilities clowns called it a fireman's pole, because it goes clear through the ceiling to the top of the second floor, but that raised padded area it lands in is for pole dancing.

Home, traffic was lighter because it was late.

Nothing delivered.

**Checked online, BofA did charge me, but did not make the payment, so I did that.

Dried off and boxed up the lame ultrasound (I ordered a better one online at work). Still need to RMA it.

Dinner was turkey leg - I still have a lot of those in the fridge freezer - mixed veggies topped with shrimp. Longans for dessert.

Watched PTI, and some of the Olympic slalom, and half of The Bachelor. One very confused woman bowed out. She did a lot of face sucking while she was saying goodbye. This bachelor doesn't seem to have a preference, all the woman who are left are very different, none of them seem to have a strong connection to him. Each date he adapts to whomever is there. I'll watch more later. The "missing person" girl is still in the race. Amusing because if she is given a rose, she gets to bring him home to her momma, the one who reported her missing when she was actually filming the show, and had told mom not to expect to hear from her till it was over.

Did a little on the Twitch stream, learned how to layer things, and how to create different views which can easily be switched between. One is a slide show, the other is a full screen of me from my PC camera.

Plans for tomorrow:
Maybe CHM, I can't remember if I made a reservation, so I emailed to ask, and be put on the wait list if not.
