Skipped go-go class tonight cos I’m feeling tired, although the legs have held up well after the gym yesterday. I had no probs with my run this morning. Since I had a free night, we went to Gurkhas for dinner. Yum but I’m so insanely full now. We had apricot goat and a pumpkin curry. Very delish indeed.
I might have another contract for a month after I finish this week. A different place and they want me to come in for an Excel test. I almost said that they could read my resume and if that wasn’t enough for them then tough, but it’s all $$$. Then tonight I got sent a 6 page specification plus accompanying spreadsheet to go through before the test! OMG.
It never fails to amaze me that people think contractors care about their projects. I’ll care while the meters ticking.
Now for rant o’the day. I seriously believe that people should be given a simple test and, if they fail it, they should be banned from all technology. Today at work a woman asked me about my ipod and how I got music on it so I began explaining stuff to her. I asked what software she used, did she use itunes? She hadn’t realised she had to use software! WTF! I mean, maybe if you sit your ipod next to your CDs the music will be eventually absorbed by osmosis or something…
Is this whole thing something that happens with age, like losing your hearing and your hair and your looks? Or is it that old people have always been dumb with technology but in the old days cos there was no technology so no one noticed?
