Wednesday Hodgepodge #23

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014 | General with Comments Off on Wednesday Hodgepodge #23

Been a long time. Still slammed with a lot of school work but I carved out a little time this week.

1. What summer activity most takes you back to your own childhood?
We used to go to grandpa’s house every summer for a week and also visit our great grandparents as well in Florida.

2. What’s your favorite summer smell?
Freshly mown grass. That is the best!

3. It’s beach season in the US of A…so how do you feel about sand?
I could do without it going into cracks it should not go to.

4. Sun tea, SunChips, sunflower seeds, Capri Sun, Sunny Delight, Sun-Maid raisins, sun-dried tomatoes…your favorite food or beverage with sun in its name?
Sun tea is awesome. You could really make it during the winter down here too.

5. What’s your favorite way to cool off on a hot summer day?
I like to just sit on the back porch when there is a nice strong breeze.

6. Share a favorite song with the word sun or sunshine in it’s title.
Nothing comes to mind at the moment.

7. Tell us about a time you had an exceedingly good or truly awful customer service experience. If it was awful, did you report it? Ever go back there again?
I think AT&T could be the worst. Going through their hoops to get things accomplished when they are in the wrong is pathetic. Complaining does nothing.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
You ever feel the summer just flies on by? It seems this whole year has been like that. I really want to enjoy my summer more by being outside doing things but I’m the idiot that scheduled myself with 2 history classes and a C++ programming class for the summer to get some more prereq’s out of the way towards my Bachelor. Starting next year I’m taking summers off!

brokenpc Haven’t been over here in a while. Things have gone crazy this summer and I’m not really doing anything except working and taking classes. I also took the kids to camp like I do every year. Never set yourself up with TWO history classes and a C++ programming class in one semester. Either way, I’m getting it done until the research papers are due next month and then I’m gonna drown in writing.

Today was a disaster at work too. I got in a 6 AM as I am early shift this week and hoping to get some homework done prior to the due dates so I can work on the research papers. So far I haven’t managed that as I got home at 3:30 and it’s over 2 hours later now.

So what happened today? Well, anything that could break essentially did. One of the modules in our medical record system went kaput because apparently they wanted us to use the new updated module that we received just last week but haven’t tested yet. Over the weekend they killed the older version without letting anybody know. Of course the module they killed off was the communication module between the staff and doctors.

So, we were getting tons of emails in from that as well as phone calls UNTIL the email went down. Yep, both servers had a failure. Go figure. So then we were getting phone calls only to then realize that the phone system was going wonky too and you couldn’t call certain numbers and it was a hit or miss as to the number you were dialing that worked or not. So essentially every single form of communication was hit lol

Fun times eh?
