Last Cup of Coffee

Last Cup of Coffee

Boggles my mind that I am the only person (not figuratively) that will search for coffee packets or the new shipment if we don't have any in our kitchen. Am I the only one who reads our division assistant's emails about where she keeps the coffee in the event that she can't deliver all of them.

Also, I steal coffee from other kitchens. Apparently most of the North 3rd floor comes to our kitchen to get coffee because the 3 North (we're 3 North A) kitchen has coffee coming out their ears. Either that or we're the true addicts.

I do loves me some coffee.

Yesterday, donut day died. No more new hire donuts. The original intention was to meet the new people on their first day, share a donut or bagel with them; it eventually became a "thing we always did." In fact, all new hires spend their first weeks in Verona anyway so we rarely see them. It's sad but I completely understand. I feel bag for the announcer; she received hisses and jeers - MOST in good humor, I believe - but still. It wasn't her fault and she was right.

We still get free lunch on staff meeting days which better facilitates eating with your team or friends. Unless you're me and have meetings for 36 hours that day.

I may be getting an Xbox 360 in the next few weeks, thereby confirming that I refuse to grow up. Immaturity rocks.

Taken Friday night after seeing art with kiwikat and narcissuskisses. I can never leave well enough alone and had said I was heading home. I eventually made it to my car about 45minutes and 50 some photos later.

I just can't be trusted to a schedule when I have my camera.

Lastly - why doesn't Windows Media Player have a CD drive listing in the Media Library? Stupid. also, Stupid iTunes drops the CD if I'm playing one, switch to a different application on my second monitor and return to it. Lamesauce.

Current Mood: annoyed annoyed

good planning re: xbox.
bad planning re: donuts.

I have no control over donuts.

Xbox - I'm waiting on my dad currently. he mentioned belated gifts for my birthday but didn't when he was here. So, I've cornered him into subsidizing my purchase.

I'm looking forward to Assassin's Creed. Also, fallout 3 in October. And maybe all the old Xbox games I missed - like Fables and Jade Empire.

Point: Buying gaming systems at 26 makes me feel childish. Discuss.

counterpoint: I'm 31 and am playing video games ON STAGE on friday.

fable 2 is coming out fairly soon and looks pretty good. The first one was damn fun.

counter-Counterpoint: You have turned gaming into a social activity and vague local fame. I beat up titans in god of war 2 which no one cares to watch.

yeah, I saw fables 2 at the E3 Microsoft keynote. I'm really excited about many of the exclusive Xbox titles. Uh.. PS3 has Infamous, which looks cool. But that's it.


Sony really is dropping the ball, stepping on it and feeding it to children with shrapnel.

Yeah, after PS2 whomped everyone's heinie so thoroughly, it is rather surprising to see microsoft as clear victor this time around. I am, of course, discounting the Wii here as that (while in name a "next gen" system) doesn't fit the needs of modern hardcore gamers.

oh, and there's a civ game just out. but it is pretty much suited for 8 year olds.

Civilization hasn't been the same since 3.

I watch...

You play Sims 2.

But I watch too... I love the gory beheadings.

and the throwing things into the fire.

Gore-monger.

Mmmm blood.

And guts.

I do not understand about the coffee thing, either. It is Not Difficult to locate, open, and utilize a pre-measured package of coffee.

However, now I am V jealous, because the coffee machines at Harley are all coin-op (read: crap in a cup).

I'm more confounded that no one else seems to try. The next kitchen over had 12 packets ON THE COUNTER.

Isn't this company supposed to be full of conscientious, driven individuals? Are they so tired in the morning that they can't think clearly enough to get coffee in the morning?
demi_deity From: demi_deity Date: July 22nd, 2008 02:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Your company is full of conscientious, driven individuals? Whoa. Here, we're lucky to get "conscious and capable of driving."
abmann From: abmann Date: July 22nd, 2008 02:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's no mean feat. I work my ass off to stay awake and not not drive erratically. I guess I should lay off the beer.
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: July 22nd, 2008 05:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not not, eh? So you're working hard to drive erratically then?
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: July 22nd, 2008 05:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ha, I can't say I'm surprised you stayed later and took more pictures. I like that one, she seems so lonesome and there's something unwholesome about drinking coffee at night when it's already dark.

I want free lunch! maaan.

windows media player in any new version is crap. I have media player classic on my PC, which is version 1.0 or 2.0 or something, but it's great. It plays everything and has none of the obnoxious "frills" that the new one does. The new one won't even load because it insists my copy of Windows isn't valid (I beg to differ, I paid for that shit).

You almost had me interested in seeking a position with your company in a couple years. But now that there are no donuts, the brain drain begins...
