Speaking of bone-stupid mistakes:

  • One of my other team members requested an environment refresh on the environment I was using (with my permission, of course). The team that does the refreshes messed up, so now she and I are sitting around without that environment.
  • I switched to the backup environment, and it has a known bug that the environment team forgot to fix, and I can't fix myself without corrupting that environment.
  • My bugs are currently getting misrouted by (*gasp*) the environment team, I can't even report the issues. And my direct contacts on that team are in a 2-hour meeting (of course)
  • My final backup plan is to update one of our old courses because Marketing doesn't like one of the words we're using. (I really hate Marketing...). But I'm still waiting on what precious, precious replacement word I can use.
  • So, I'm all ready to work, but nowhere to go.

    What to do, what to do?

    I know! Post to Paizo!!!

    EDIT: And being naked is a privilege, not a bone-stupid mistake. And two pages in a row! Woo hoo!

    So... pot is now "legal" in California. I had no idea until a few weeks ago on the eclipse trip when I saw all the billboards advertising it, but meh... whatever.

    Except today my neighbor smoking up a storm, and I'm having to close my windows to avoid the stench.

    I dunno, is it impolite to knock on someone's door and ask, "Could you please smoke your doobs inside?"

    Took the kitties to the vet this morning for their annual checkup and shots. Naturally they hated it, although the vet is always so surprised at how friendly and cooperative they are. So now they are both cranky in very different ways. Eris is all glaring at me and doesn't want to be touched and has tucked herself in a hidey hole to sleep until everything stops hurting. She might possibly consider forgiving me in a few days but thinks I shouldn't hold my breath on that. Mordin is all agitated and follows me from room to room because everything hurts and I need to give him attention to make the ouchies all better. Near constant ear scritchies are required as penance for my crimes. :P

    Edit: Eris decided that Mordin was onto something and that she too deserved ear scritchies as penance, so she came out for a while and got fussed over before she stalked off to go back to hiding. :)

    I once got undercharged $5 and went back to the store to try to pay it.

    You'd have thought I was offering to poison the employees' children...

    You know how yesterday was all productive and going to plan? Yeah....today was nothing like that. I spilled coffee in my ear this morning. (Tripped as I was holding my travel mug and the lid popped off as the mug hit the top of its arc, splashing right into my ear.) The rest of the day went pretty much like that. It was a splendid show of klutziness and incompetence. Like the three stooges with one person playing all the parts. :P

    You're not to take after me.

    Speaking of employees children, it just occurred to me, I don't necessarily have to wait for the wife to get off work when she's working OT, I can just put Pea Bear in charge.

    It's easy, all I have to do is say as I'm walking out the door "you can watch whatever you want on YouTube"

    That should occupy them for the hour until she gets home.

    So I know this was meant tongue-in-cheek, but isn't beating a dead horse what FaWtL is all about?

    And if it isn't, doesn't that just give CY an excuse for another alias?

    Beat that Horse:
    So here's my overall take on the universe:
    Step 1: Something bad happens. A server crashes. A building falls over. The supposedly-thoroughly-tested course fails on lab one. Someone is loudly chewing Grape Nuts during a conference call.

    Step 2: Blame Someone At this point, I strongly feel that the correct and proper action is to ask, "Why did 'bad thing' happen?"
    Instead, most people in a very visceral, reactive way, immediately say, "Whose fault is it?"
    Someone gets blamed. Everyone else says, "Meh, not my problem."
    This is fine if the issue was one of sheer incompetence. Culprit found. Record updated. Third error? Out on your butt you go. Or whatever the process happens to be.

    But nobody ever learns (except the culprit), and bad processes are never uncovered.

    NobodysHome's Step 2: Determine the root cause of the problem. Was it a bad process? A person not following an existing good process? Plain old human error? Until you know what happened, blaming someone is really counterproductive, as it makes everyone who didn't get blamed tune out the entire conversation.

    NobodysHome's Step 3: Once we've ferreted out the cause, then if it was human error, then you write up the human. If it was a bad process, you revise the process.
    I've had waaaaaay too many arguments with kids where the point of the conversation is supposed to be, "Don't climb that tree because its branches are rotten," where the focus is instead, "*I* didn't climb the tree! Impus Major did!"
    Not a useful conversation.

    Guess what? When something happens, 90% of the time I already know whose fault it was the moment it happens. Another 9% of the time I do a little digging and figure it out. I don't need help assigning blame. I need help analyzing the root cause of the issue and rooting that out.

    So it's not forgiving incompetence. It's making sure that it was incompetence in the first place. And blaming before making sure everybody knows what happened and why it happens ensures that those people who weren't involved, but may make the mistake in the future, don't learn from other people's mistakes.

    Yeah, I think Hermione needs to spend more time on a Midwestern lake, so she can fully understand exactly how evil mosquitoes are.

    Bad does not exactly equate evil, though she is indeed doing alright for first grade.

    On another topic, the game tonight went well. I'm still trying to call the players by their character's names, but about half of them just sit there until the third or fourth time I call on them, and then say "Oh, that's me, isn't it?" It is kind of odd to me that last week they progressed so slowly through the investigation, and then this week they tore through it so quickly. I guess that's what happens when they finally start asking the right questions.

    It resembles one of those giant inflatable bubbles people climb into and roll down hills, except it fits over your head and waist with arms.

    When I went to bed at 11 it was 73 degrees, when I woke up at 5:25 it was 72 degrees.

    There's usually more variance then that.

    It cracks me up how little people pay attention to weather reports and radar.

    I looked at the radar this morning, saw the storm had successfully pushed through, then looked at the forecast saw it wasn't going to rain again and dressed accordingly.

    Everyone else apparently saw the dense cloud cover end the wet ground and decided an umbrella was needed.

    Of course, now they'll be saddled with an umbrella all day as the sun comes out and the temp climbs up to 89 degrees.

    My cat, Tigger, was the same way. She would run off and hide the instant the carry case came out. We would have to struggle to get her in it. She'd let out the most pitiful meows during the trip to the vet, and all the time there, she'd visibly shake. When the exam and shots were done, she'd enter the case willingly. Once home, she would demand that I pet her until she was satisfied.
