Not Much

So last night was another quiet rainy one. But at least the heavy grey clouds have now disappeared and the sun is back out in Joburg :)

Varen & I hung out at home watching some series - I'm so totally not getting the Sarah Connors Chronicles ... although I do like the robot girl, sometimes she's hysterical :) But I also started Lost Season 4 and am so far quite impressed with the route they've gone with it story-line wise. Like in the first season when they looked back on everyone's life off the island. Whereas now they keep looking forward to when they're off the island. Which is good, you've got to find ways to spice things up after 4 seasons :)

The new job is going well. I had a induction-type meeting yesterday and am getting adjusted to using Thunderbird (instead of Outlook). It took 2 days but I finally managed to get my calendar items imported and my address book sorted ... I even figured out how to add a signature at the bottom of my emails (it's way different to how one does it in Outlook, but still an easy process if you know how!) and filter messages into different folders. Things are looking up :) The rest of yesterday was spent with more software installation and this afternoon I have my first training session on the software I'll be developing for. Exciting times, people.

YAY. Glad you got that sorted!

Wow. You are so on another level to me. My Outlook won't let me add signatures. Stubborn PC I have. It won't let me archive either.

Glad yuo're all sorted. And that you enjoyed the YouTube clip ;-)

@jane - thanks :)

@tamara - so you're not a computer type, but I'm sure you're far from alone :) Sometimes it has it's perks tho ... and yup, that YouTube clip was brilliant!

@sweets - new jobs can be fab, new people, new things to learn and that blissful settling in period. Although I have it on good authority that my time is up and The Real Work will be starting tomorrow - eep!

Phillygirl.. where you been.. you got to watch Gossip Girl. Ok admittedly the demographic is 12-13years old, white female and American. Lets see... thats so not me in every sense. Still its trashy as hell and so much fun.. like candyfloss with a bite. Watch it watch it.. it so rocks (see I am speaking like a Tween)

@mrjones - pahahahaha, you crack me up. Maybe I'll try an episode or two tho ;)

i swear there’s nothing more daunting than a job change and having to learn new systems!

phillygirl said...

@angel - yep, generally. Good thing I knew so many people from here already ;) Cept not the systems ... I'm still in the teething stages of that :(
