My uh, Noon PM guy called back and argued with some more people about whether or not it was really Noon or not.

For whatever reason, that reminds me of the one tech support story my ex had from work... A customer had called in to try and figure out what was going on with their TV decoder, since it was showing an error code "LOS".

Of course, nobody in the department remembered what LOS was supposed to mean, and the documentation is as poorly managed as one would expect, so nobody in IT knew what to do about this. More and more people get dragged into the ticket to try and help figure out what the heck is going on.

They were starting to get really confused, and were planning to just schedule sending someone out for a physical inspection when the customer mentioned that the error code had now changed, and was displaying code "BES" instead.

...[sound of brain gears crunching]


The decoder was upside down.

Pffft... So, Spotify just handed me the 2019 "Here's a fraction of the data we collected on you" report, showing me my listening habits through the year and what my seasonal songs were.

Year start was pretty much expected, just listening to various things I'd filtered down to after a very Iron & Wine Christmas, nothing too out of the ordinary... Then spring rolls around and there's one song in particular that's miles ahead of all the others.

"Huh," I thought, "I sure did listen to that track a lot. I wonder wha-... oh."

Yeah. That was the song I binged on repeat after getting heartbroken. Whoops.

And then summer rolled around, which was when I started trying to make a habit of going to the gym, so most-played track was... BFG Division.


I dunno, I thought it was kinda funny...

This is the second time I've heard Iron and Wine mentioned in like, as many days. Wtf is going on?!
Kagus, was it you who mentioned it the last time? I think it may have been elsewhere, though.

So, is this where we act surprised the head of Gainax turned out to be a pervert/shitsack?

I guess they're regretting promoting that guy. He only got that job recently, in October of this year.

Not that it makes it much better but

Fuckin' weebs.
...Wait, it's a Japanese studio. You can't technically call them weebs, then, can you? Oh well they still suck.   



In other news I slept in well past my alarm and had a series of bizarre dreams. Also a moment of panic when I thought I was supposed to go to something starting at one, before realising that's tomorrow. D'oh.

I've slept, not quite uninterrupted (was awake for maybe a combined 2 hours in there), but close to it, from about 10:30 pm last night until roughly now, around 4:20 pm the next day. Something approaching sixteen hours not-quite-straight? Still kinda' feel like taking a nap, too :-\

I do that once every few years, when I have a fever. You wake up a bit tired, maybe a bit thirsty, then you're just better.
