i'm praying for a positive phone-call to inform me that she's solved the problem. in the meanwhile, i'll just remain angry with the bastard.
i have an amusing ant problem. if there're any remains on the sink's metal cover, i have an almost-instantaneous stream of ants flowing around it. when it's clear, they disappear. so no problem :)
the day began with me being too honest about my SC with another SC on the way to work - and then wondering if maybe it'll pass on to him as a rumour... i don't think it would really help, but it couldn't cause too much harm, either.
i discovered this morning that it's illegal for me to study, on my own time and with my own money, in an institute of learning without applying for and receiving authorization from my unit. our unit commander has decided, in his infinite wisdom, that there will be no more authorizations. i *love* the army.
we had two lectures this morning, one from better place and another on defensive driving.
a) the better place solution isn't perfect, but it's a far sight better than the situation than we're in right now. and that's OKAY. some idiots were nitpicking and suggesting that it's a waste of time.
b) the driving tips and "insights" are basic tenets, common knowledge and general rules of the road... just not in israel. it's really aggravating to see so many puzzled faces and hear so much arguing when the lecturer says things like "you should look ahead" and "concentrate on driving".
i sewed a shirt pocket decently, ate too much cake, and spent the afternoon's free time fixing a useful excel file and planning a really interesting assistant application. i was most pleased when my TL turned to me and said "wow! you're actually using your development tools! i thought you were going to waste them like everyone else".
obviously we're not talking here about our primary work tools :P
it's nice to be appreciated, though. especially by the guy who's been holding me back for the last half a year.
