I pocket dialed 911 last night, and that lead to a call from a dispatcher and then an officer stopping by to check things out. Both were nice and understanding, I'm thinking it happens often enough. And my phone actually called 112, but I'm thinking maybe all 3 digital calls that aren't to another service just get routed to the police? I need a new phone I think. I might start using my iPhone again, we will see.

Yesterday was a lot, and I mean a lot, of excel training. We use it quiet often, since we deal mostly with databases in collection, so that is a useful skill. But it is long and kinda boring. Might have more of it today, depends on how meetings go.

I was told I need to post more to facebook, for my friends who don't use twitter or LJ. So I'm having twitter post over there as well. Though I'm going to have to mentally censor some, since there are very different groups in those places. I'll have to @ reply to myself once in a while, I think. (And now I know why some people do that.)

This week is gonna be busy. I'm going up to mom and dad's on Friday, so I have packing to do, plus I want to make some chutney to bring up so I can give it to my aunt and uncle for their birthdays. And I need to wrap mom's gifts.

And in two weekends (Halloween weekend), Paul's mom and sister are coming to visit. So we need to start cleaning the house to get ready for them.

October always gets busy like this.

Remey has begun to play with toys now, as opposed to just sitting next to one of us on the couch. Which I'm taking as a good sign. Maybe he'll start to play with JP soon (which was kinda the point). He seems to be doing well.

I post office is draining my soul more every day. I continue to cut up my hands, it hurts to type I have some many cuts. People are getting crabbier, I guess. I've been yelled out for things that are not my job or I didn't do all week. And they keep asking me to work more, and I explain that if I do I loose out on a lot of unemployment money. And they are like "oh, right, well just this time?" I've been juggling it, but I'd like to find a better paying job soon. And getting up at 4:30am is getting really, really old. It'd also be nice to have Monday off, like everyone else at the post office, but us temps don't get things like national holidays off. :grrr:

Also I forgot my iPhone at home when I came to the mall today. So I have no idea what is on my to do list. So I'll try and remember some of the items, I guess.

It's been a low mood swing week. Hopefully it will get better next week.

I'm catching up on some podcasts that have been sitting on my iphone for a while. If I have work to do, I can listen to them. But if I'm trying to occupy my time, I have a hard time just sitting and listening. Looks bad. I'm not in the best mood right now, just low point in my mood cycle. But I'm noticing that all of the stories I'm listening to are kinda depressing. At least all of the sci-fi, horror, and fantasy short fiction podcasts. Do people write happy ending short stories anymore?

I upgraded my iphone to the new OS. I like the icon stacks, keeps the number of pages smaller for sure. I used to be at 9 pages of apps, now I have 4. I hope I don't have any issues, seems stable right now.

I've been thinking how proud I am of my sister for picking up her family and life and going on this adventure. I'm jealous too. I wish I had done something exciting like that with my life.

I don't actually mind working over time on the weekends. But when I had plans for Saturday to be a day of nothing just vegging on the couch with my BF, it's hard to show a happy face. And this time it is all easy work, almost too mindless as I was nodding off yesterday afternoon. Back again today. India is asking for us to get way too much done, so we are gonna do what we can. Most of the work is opening file (takes 5 min), see if there are corrections from the client (90% of the time = no), close file (another 5 min). Hard to keep eyes open on that.

Still enjoying Pandora on the iphone. I'd vote for less repeats on the channel I'm listening too, but maybe the genre I've got is too small, or something.

I finished Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner. I really liked it (this was an actual book, like with paper and everything). It's a good take on a medieval society, and the masks and lies everyone uses and accepts to keep up appearances. And it gives a believable amount of hidden gay lives of the aristocracy. It has a good ending, which is key in a story, IMO. And had a few twists that I didn't foresee. All in all, I recommend it. The copy I have has a few short stories that feature the main characters also, which were good. I liked the "end of the life" story a lot. I'm gonna have to look for the sequel that takes place like 60 years longer.

Grade: -A

Last night went well. My team played volleyball well, we only won one game, but the other team was good too. I felt I did a good job also. Then we had a few beers at Pooleys, apparently one can drink for free on his or her birthday. Then we went to the Malt house and met up with Keith and Pat for a few drinks. I found their list of meads and drank some of those. Also got to talk to my mom for a bit.

Work has moved to "if you need OT to his a deadline, do it, but don't blanket start putting it in." So I have to judge how much the project needs. Lots of batches and stacks of pages to track, it's giving me a headache. I think we will hit our dates though.

I also have a lot of iTunes money to spend, need to read some app reviews to find out what I want. But soon I'll be able to check and comment on forums from the iPhone, which at the very least means it's easier to post for the Mile High Club game.

Fall volleyball league started, mostly a social night, but had a lot of team organization for those who signed up individually. Was fun playing and meeting some new people. One guy just happened to be at the bar and joined on the spot. Totally random, we did stress the gayness of the league, so he's not surprised. Damn good player too, jump serve and a wicked spike, but I blocked him the first time we faced off, so he hit around me for the rest of the night, occasionally hitting it out.

I also somehow ended up on two teams. My normal one, that one I've been on for like 3 years and a lower level one where I am the coach. Not sure where Dale came up with this plan. Basically for the lower skilled players or those that are new, he made teams up and then put on a more experienced player on as their coach. I'm kinda honored to be picked to be a coach, I don't think I'm that level of player--one that can pass on skills, but I'll do my best. I am a bit worried what will happen when my new team plays my old one. Do I have to choose? Gonna talk to Dale about it more, maybe the two teams aren't in the same league? Though I thought I heard that we were only having on division this session. And even so, there should be times when the two teams play at the same time, even if they aren't against each other. No other board members knew about this, so hopefully he'd thought this out.

I also got my iPhone synced to Paul's computer, finally. So I have my info backed up and can load new podcasts again. Very happy about this. Course if I do replace the dead laptop, I'll have to go though it all again. Oh well, such is the high tech life.

Paul's birthday bar hoping trip went well, we hit the Malt House, the Shamrock and Plan B. He's sleeping it off, as well as Jess. I'll get him up when I get home from the mall.

I have figured out how to get my contacts onto the PC without entering them by hand. I uploaded them to my.memova.com from my iphone and then was able to export them so I and put them into Windows Contacts (trying to avoid Outlook).

I couldn't figure out how to do that with my calendar, so instead I set up a google calendar and have it set up to text me alerts for events. I can update the calendar from the iphone, so hopefully this will work out ok.

And for your Labor Day enjoyment, a song dedication to Jared Padalcki's ass

I turns out when I exported my contacts from my laptop before I wiped it I only did one of them. So I don't have any data to put on Paul's PC and try and sync to the iphone. I'll have to put them all in by hand. But it will give me a reason to trim down the contacts list.

The calendar file I exported can't be read by the PC either. I might try and run it though a few other programs, then sync it. Else I'll have to start from scratch again after the first sync.

And the best part? I'll have to do this all again if I get a new computer and sync to that. I'm sure the iphone is worth it, really.

Internet is back at work. I took a half day yesterday, mowed the lawn, picked up applications for like 20 hotels (I'm thinking night desk clerk), feed and walked JP and did yoga. It's been too long since I've done that. I'm sore and my shoulder really, really hurts. Like I was playing volleyball for hours and hours and did a lot of serving and hitting. I must have just over stretched that arm.

Not sure what the plans are for Paul's birthday this weekend yet. We keep going back and forth between going out and having people over.

Yep, as soon as I posted that my computer wasn't having any problems, I can no longer connect to the client's server. Or it was that the IT guy came over to see why I was lucky and it decided to stop working. Whichever. Half the staff has taken a half day, I might also, we'll see.

To pass the time, I made an iphone icon. I was gonna go with the 2001: Space Odyssey one, but it's been done a lot. So I give you... iHenge

Apparently everyone at work is having major connectivity issues with the client's server and they outside world in general except me. Of course I've now jinxed that. B even started her half day early. Oh well, I keep chugging along.

Didn't get my iphone synced to Paul's computer last night like planned. Turns out my external was a Mac only hard drive, so it took us (mostly Paul) a few hours to track down the software we needed to get Vista to talk to the hard drive. Now everything is copied over, but the PC couldn't read the iTunes Library file from my mac, so I need to add all my music and stuff by hand. I'm worried that after I do this and sync my iphone, it will erase all my iphone data and I'll have to start over with contacts, calendar, photos, apps, etc.

Not good. Need to do some more research today/tonight before I make that jump.

:sigh:

Life continues to suck, beyond the computer/iphone issues.

I think I also need an iphone icon.
