See You Next Wednesday
Only the words have been changed to protect the level of comprehension.
Today I have been mostly struggling to get a grip on this task:
We need to review big job handling during this project. All big jobs are handled from an important place and regular things need to be done to connect other places to the important place to allow handling of big jobs.
They are currently done in practice on a regular timely basis. Someone set up this process in effect to do so automatically but it seems to have stopped.
To review big job handling we need the following things to be done. They should only be done when the important place is connected to other places.
First thing to be done in two places (places A & B). This thing does something to stuff in a place and moves to a special place.
Second thing to be done in the special place. Step A and Step B are the only steps required to be done. This thing acts on the stuff moved by the first thing.
Third thing to be done in the special place. Step A and Step B are the only steps required to be done. This thing moves the stuff acted on by the second thing to the important place.
Fourth thing to be done in the important place. This thing undoes what was done by the first thing to the stuff moved by the third thing in the important place.
If you have any queries please contact me or someone else.
Could you please be telepathic.
Ouch! My eyes.
I've just spent two hours glancing at the Query Details screen and the Query History screens for three hundred test queries. I should be sending messages to those people assigned queries which are outside the resolution timeliness standard, but that would require me to look at those screens again so it can jolly well wait until after lunch. Anyway my fingers are beginning to confuse the keyboard shortcuts and that could have consequences. Yes, it could.
All my friends are moving interstate.
Yeah, they're all going home.
We're all getting drunk on the weekend,
And changing the speed dial on our phone.
Ted came to visit. He had a meeting at ANU on Monday so he arrived in plenty of time on Friday night. Ted is smart and cool. To disguise this Linda, Simon, Ted and I went shopping on Saturday before attending Meagan's farewell inebriation (with many more people) and watching two Rugby Union World Cup 2003 quater finals on the big screen at a pub. (The pub claimed the epithet "Irish" but the level of pine fixtures and fittings was more reminiscent of a Norwegian pub with Guiness on tap.) Later that same weekend we recovered by watching hours of telly including two more Rugby Union World Cup 2003 quater finals, Battle of the Planets
(G-Force is a pale imitation of Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, in case you were wondering), Insiders
, 7 Days
, Kenny Everett's Naughty Bits
(and More Kenny Everett's Naughty Bits
), Young Ones
, and Get Backers
These are the dreams of the everyday housewife
Simon and his belongings have been successfully instated to his new two bedroom unit full of furniture and boxes. Really, quite full. Last weeks highlight was handing over hundreds of dollars to have Emily's teeth cleaned. The lowlight was losing by hundreds of runs at indoor cricket (well, more than one hundred). On Saturday I did shopping, clothes washing, linen washing, dish washing, dusting, sweeping and weeding. On Sunday I watched telly and played computer games. If Anne hadn't come over to watch anime with Linda I might have spent the whole day in my dressing gown.
This may not sound like the snappiest line from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), but it evidently caught the imagination of John Landis, who has worked references to a mythical film of this name into most of his own movies - memorably as the grotty British skinflick watched by an assortment of lycanthropes and zombies in the climax of An American Werewolf in Paris [sic] (1981).
