last tuesday, mostly computer problems (stemming from certain damaged phone lines) that really slow down our work flow. then on wednesday we had a water outage... chemistry analyzer had to be manually pumped with water to run tests. thursday, more chemistry analyzer problems some kind of overflowed wash valve. friday, another minor network outage while they repaired the fire-damage cable. then, my first weekend off for this year! quite relaxing. :3 back to the grind on monday night... don't even remember what happened. i got off work on tues morning and headed straight to leahi to do a 6hr campy experiment. then on tuesday night, chemistry analyzer wasn't reading barcodes again (turned out they switched the network lines for an hour and forgot to tell us.)
last night, wednesday, a different person, in the same area, cut the same network cable as the one that was damaged last week. really guys? again? i'm pretty sure lasers were coming out of my eyes, i was so mad! luckily, the IT guys came to the rescue and we were only down for a few hours. then we spent the next few hours cleaning up unresulted tests from the down time. then a bleeder got transferred to us from another hospital; i ordered platelets and BBH accidentally switched my order with queen's! haha. would have worked out in my favor because i only needed one but a box arrived with six (!!!) but we switched orders with them and all was well. :)
i'm working chemistry again tonight, makes me wonder what else could possibly go wrong. :X
on the other hand, working hard makes you appreciate your time off more!
nothing like a long night of work and coming home to your minecraft house and finding
a present in your living room!
or a cat on your roof!
or an enderman rearranging your cave!
what else did i do on my day off? checked out this book about jello at the library.
watched new episodes of young justice (zatanna is back! death stroke is back! angry roy harper joins the team! lex luthor is going to... form The Outsiders? i'm calling it! heard here first, on the blog!)
discovered li'l gothams has a series (it's only 99¢ so no excuse in missing out in the batman cute overload!)
but the real highlight of my weekend was meeting the great and infamous sau!he's super cool and has lots of interesting ideas!
he professed he doesn't really want pictures of himself so here's a picture of his awesome bicycle
which he let me ride
but most of the time i had pained expressions and looked ridiculous
so i gave it back.
we went on a rapid jaunt to moiliili where i met another bicycling lad- the cycle manoa organizer! (i'm sorry, i don't recall your name) together, they righted my bicycling wrongs (thanks for flipping my quick release to the correct side) before i departed.
thanks for the bikeventure, hope we can ride again some time!!
