I'm starting to wonder what two years professional experience and a masters degree is worth when I'm only applying for entry-level stuff. Maybe I am just that hopeless. Blergh.

My legs are fucked which has meant I've been walking everywhere like fucking Forrest Gump.

Also I have suddenly gained a cold which has left my right nostril looking like that of a crack addict.

And now I've discovered the knuckle joints in my left hand are hurting for no reason in particular.

:ugh:

they probably want people who are likely to stay for with them for a long time, and who arent likely to get a better job. just keep looking, you'll get something eventually :yes:

Dealing with a fucking idiot at work. Somehow managed to get put in charge of a department.

I write an e-mail detailing a test plan for some software that affects his department, asking him to agree it is adequate.

He replies:

"Is this about [subject] or something else?"

[subject] appears (verbatim) in:

The title of the e-mail I sent.
Within the first 20 words of the e-mail I sent.
4 times within the e-mail as a whole.
The final sentence of the e-mail - "Are you happy that the described process is a satisfactory regression test for [subject]?"

Have just asked my line manager if I can beat it into him with a claw hammer. Am not expecting my preferred response... :x

That sounds like, as my colleague calls it, a "24-carat cock".

I mentioned yesterday that my Mum was thinking of naming her new puppy the same name I had said I would name a little girl If I ever have one.

She was torn between two names, so I told her to go with the other one and reminded her why the other name wasn't appropriate.


She has ignored that and gone ahead and called it that anyway.

I need a drink!

If it makes you feel any better, my mum has the same name as my dad's childhood dog and they've been married 30 years

I actually can't find my ID. I've only been able to get by using my beard when purchasing alcohol. I bloody hope I can find it soon and that I haven't lost it
If it sounds good, listen to it

I keep having the exact same problem but the other way around :/
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

Still feeling like a wrung out jockstrap, still battling a computer system apparently designed by spastic gibbons, still fed up for no apparent reason. Fuck this shit.

To add to that my dads girlfriend has a friend over from australia and her 2 kids and they've invited themselves to stay for dinner. PISS OFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF I HATE EVERYONE TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!! :x
