Yes, I am still alive and kicking, though my sanity was in question for a while there. At work, we were discussing if the wards had group rates...why???
Computer refresh from hell (there is no polite way to say it).
Every 3-5 years we get new computers at work. It is suppose to be an easy process. I assume it is an easy process for all the other areas but my own.
The main reason is they ask the wrong person a badly phrased question. The question being "Do we have any special needs that they don't know about?" The person being asked the one person in my department who thinks Print Shop Pro is the end all and be all of programs. If she could do all her work in it, she would be a computer expert. Not the person to be asking in this case. She said only that we work 7 days a week (well some part of my department does). What she forgot is we have (and what the man was really asking) specialized programs, fonts, etc. All needed for our unit to function. A two day computer install took over a week to do and I had to play go between and get certain computers back to where they were. Needless to say, it was very stressful and I had just come back from the first TRUE vacation I had in two years, I was relaxed until all this.
But there have been some great moments:
Felicia from Sweetgeorgia sent me this:
Sock yarn in some of my favorite colors and a Hello Kitty Charm she picked up in Japan. Totally cool...
My SP4 sent me this from Chicago before the reveal:
I hate all mint chocolate except for Frango Mints and Summer IK which could not be found for the longest time here.
