I must have been really evil in a previous life (Updated)

September 19, 2005

What. A. Bloody. Day.

It’s torture but I am getting paid for it!

I know I went out last night. I also know I felt a little wobbly this morning when I got up. But by 10am I was actually feeling human again.

Until the evil people that I work for decided that today would be the day that they shut me in a room inputting fake orders onto our computer for testing or something else as random as that.

It was bearable to begin with but now it is 4.55pm and I have been here for hours! My ipod battery ran out so all I have to amuse myself is my mutterings – ‘control c, control v, tap tap tap, account number tap tap, product tap tap, amend spreadsheet….and start again!’ I swear my brain screamed with fright, jumped out of my head and madde a run for the hills about 3pm.

The good news is I have done 100 today. The bad news is I have to do 500.

It is going to be a BORING week!

Update…Day 2…..

I am desperately trying not to whine on about this but I would just like to say that I have been at it since 9am this morning with no end in sight…help me…it is so hard not to get distracted and end up staring at all your lovely blogs all day. Bad Kelly! At least I have a break this afteroon as we have a company update meeting. Which will actually be even more boring than this so GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!

I do however have a working Ipod today as I bought the charger with me. However on the subject of my Ipod I would just like to say that it is possible to have too much choice. I just cannot decide what I am in the mood to listen to!

On another note I seem to have been unable to even think about posting anything of any substance recently but I feel that the fog in my head is starting to lift again. I’ll be back soon.

    I hate doing that sort of work, which i’m sometimes forced to do. At least you’ve got your ipod… i’ve got my boring boss sitting next to me peeking at my screen to see if i’m working or searching the internet… so the times i’m on the internet usually means he’s in the kitchen making a tea, or at lunch. I feel for you, i really do!

    Shuffle, baby! I can never decide what to listen to on my ipod, so I usually keep it on shuffle and just skip through songs that bore me. Sometimes something fantastic happens.
