- What’s the longest line you’ve ever stood in?
waiting to get in to TBS concert! we were pretty close, decided to check if our tickets were at will call, they said yes but we had to wait in line! got back in line... at the end. :(
totally worth it though. best concert i attended. ♡
- When did you have the most fun waiting in line?
black friday with yummiestars! one of the first all nighters i pulled in my life! unbeknownst to me, the first of many years of all nighters i would have. ;)
- What line, no matter how long or short it is, always drives you crazy?
they should have a separate, express line at the grocery store for people buying ice cream!
- When did you last behave in a manner that was over the line?
one time at work, i was having trouble with the coulter LH not advancing racks. our QC is dependent on a specifically barcoded rack so i couldn't run the QC. i called tech services and they said a part needed changing and they would send someone in the morning. in the mean time, i ran our back up machine and wrote a mailbox to the other hematologist explaining what happened. i also attempted to run the QC manually (with out the special rack) but the data was not going in to the QC folder.
the next night, the day shift tech had written me... CCed to the entire department that i should not have left the QC un-done and next time i should have run it in the manual mode and typed in such and such ID number so that it goes in the QC folder and the machine is still usable in the manual mode...
i was so mad! i did everything i could think of and i had a contingency plan (use the back up) for AM rounds and i left appropriate notes to let everyone know the machine was not running, i looked in the SOP for instructions on entering QC data manually but it was not in there, and even scheduled an appointment for the service tech to come in to change the part in the morning!!
so i wrote back a mailbox, in all caps, CCed to the entire department: I AM SORRY I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO RUN THE QC IN MANUAL MODE, I DID WHAT I COULD TO MAKE THE DEPARTMENT READY FOR THE DAY TIME, I AM SORRY YOU WERE DISAPPOINTED. YOUR INSTRUCTIONS WERE VERY HELPFUL AND NEXT TIME I WILL USE THIS INFORMATION.
immediately after i sent this sarcastic angry note... i regretted it. i was sure i was going to be called by HR and talked to by the bosses... but! the coworker i intended this message for did not take it as sarcasm! she responded to me- i am glad i could be of some assistance, please let me know if you need more instruction in the future. 8'D some how she didn't pick up on any of my wrath! this is a fortunate thing, seeing as i really enjoy having a job.
what did i learn from this?
STOP. CALM DOWN. THINK BEFORE YOU SEND.
- What are some lines of poetry you can recite from memory?
Not in cruelty, not in wrath
The Reaper came today
An angel visited this gray path
And took the cube away.
in other news...
i recently read this article about flourishing vs. magic: http://visualmadness.com/articles/magic-no-magical-hell-yes/
and he mentions the riffle fan as a visually stunning effect.
which led me to this video, i saw on theCuso. years ago (fyi, featuring mr. cuso, dimitri arleri) but it disappeared shortly after it was posted!
it is back! it's amazing! here, watch:
2:41 riffle fan, amazeballs, right?! i also love the 3:29 table spread to fan. both simple looking enough but really beautiful. (and if you try it, not so simple at first. deceptively, your left hand isn't moving...)
ok, that's all i got for now.
back to crunching campy stuff for the up coming poster season. X___X
