Well, “odd” I suppose is in how you define the word.
Haven’t heard back from the company I interviewed with. Was told “a week or so”, so will wait until … next Tuesday or later before asking what’s up.
The weird part THIS week: I decided to upgrade WordPress yesterday morning. Like an idiot, I downloaded the latest version and just simply uploaded it over the top of my existing stuff on the server at Earthlink. That was a huge mistake, as the configuration files got overwritten, and it “forgot” where the data was. So, I spent a good portion of the morning (well, nearly an hour) dealing with a support person who kept insisting on installing WordPress (or re-installing it) rather than restoring the backup. After lots of idiocy there, I went out and deleted the contents of the WordPress folder, only … there was one folder that wouldn’t delete. Some permissions thing on the server, I assume. The whole thing got written up, and the second-level support people were supposed to get in touch with me. This morning, I decided to try the link, and … et voila, it works again. What happened to contacting me?
On top of it, I went to Orchard Supply and Hardware (OSH) to see about getting some magnetic clasps for some of the cabinets in the kitchen (getting tired of banging my leg on the cabinet door with the trash can behind it — it opens on a whim just enough … argh!) Did some looking. Couldn’t find what I was looking for. Went to the guy at the front and asked for help. He flagged someone down. We went to the same place I had been looking, and still didn’t find what I needed (a magnet and a steel plate — how hard is that?). More irritating, the guy, after a couple of minutes, just walked away — didn’t make sure I found what I needed, he just walked away. Not real amused by that. I actually went to their website and complained to a feedback email address. I doubt it will do any good, but …
Have found myself most of the week playing a dumb game on the iPad (well, it is addictive — blowing sh*t up … lots of it …). I probably ought to delete it at some point. (Angry Birds / Transformers) It is way too easy to get caught up in. Also reading a lot.
Our tax guy retired on us, so he sent us information for another person who does the same thing (and comes to your house, which is nice). He’s coming by this evening …
CJ told me this morning she needs to set up an appointment at Kaiser, she’s having problems getting to sleep because her heart is racing too much. That’s … disconcerting. Even more disconcerting — as we were getting ready to leave for work she made sure I knew the password on her phone and where she stored a lot of other passwords on said phone. EEP! I don’t think it’s as serious as that, I sure hope not. Not mentioning this on FB or elsewhere, because … well, we have no clue, and there are some things that you just don’t share all over the place. What it probably boils down to is that she needs a) exercise; b) to lose weight … but we don’t know for sure. Her work has been wearing her out, and the SCA exchequer job has been tough. She only has four months to go … will be glad when that’s over.
Ugh. Keep thinking I’m going to be productive but mostly am not. Need to lug the vacuum upstairs — thinking tomorrow I’ll do some cleaning upstairs.
Speaking of tomorrow — it’s our 22nd anniversary. However, tomorrow evening she has a deployment for work. Go anywhere for OUR FREAKING ANNIVERSARY? I guess not. Need to figure something out for Saturday instead, I guess. I may still get some flowers tomorrow and all that, but sheesh. Story of our lives. The good thing is that she’s working, and despite the frustrations (and there are plenty) she actually likes her boss and mostly likes the job.
