  • I have been dying for a weekend when I didn't have to do anything, so I could do the last of my unpacking, clean my "office" and set up all my sewing stuff. Now that I finally have one, I actually don't want to do anything. :(

    Ugh! I had forgotten how difficult it is to write a good resume and cover letter. So glad I don't have to job seek very often!

    I hate cover letters. Hate them. It gets exhausting cheerfully telling people how good I could be for their company, only have them mentally fill in at the end of it "if I were the correct gender for the job."

    I really sometimes think I shouldn't have gone into a traditionally male-dominated field, but I love what I do, dangit.

    o.o ...sorry. /rant

    @taarna23 Or be declined a job because of a stupid personality test.

    "Sorry, your persoanlity type just isn't what we're looking for. What do you mean these tests are utter nonsense, and the results easily manipulated by simply tailoring your answers to meet a specific criteria!"

    @The Stranger Oh, gosh. If I get those I make sure to answer what I think they want. ...which, if resulting in a job, unfailingly results in a terrible job.
    Worked until 8 last night, then stayed up until a bit after midnight watching NCIS. It was the moment I went to bed that my cat decided was the best time to wake up, then spent the next 3 hours prowling around the house with his pitiful meow/howling. I'm not exhausted AT ALL now!

    Well, at least it's good that you're not exhausted at all now ;)

    I hope you can get some much better rest tonight.

    You guys have the MasterChef that runs like 6x a week and actually teaches you cool techniques in Australia, right? I always wished the US version could be like that; instead it's just another overwrought cooking-themed reality competition show (though definitely one of the better ones).
    Shaz
    Shaz
    @Wavelength yeah, that's the one. Love it, esp with the new judges. They don't show many master classes anymore, but I think you can go to the network website and view them.
    Masterchef Australia started again a couple of weeks ago. Have You Been Paying Attention (my fave show) starts again tonight. They are both playing havoc with my NCIS viewing!
    Moving day tomorrow! Do I keep packing? Or do I play games and browse forum? Decisions, decisions!

    On the up-side... They are mice... Not rats. Or snakes, or scorpions or anything else a little nastier infesting the place ...
    Seeing as where you live Id say your still on the lucky side of things xD

    Uh ... also ... my hubby put stuff from the laundry tub into the washing machine this morning and found a green tree frog at the bottom. So that's a plus, though I'd prefer them to stay OUTside. (We also brought our frog family with us - they live in our empty plant pots and we weren't leaving those behind).

    The other plus is we have 3 cats. The cat with one tooth caught this mouse.

    I hate moving too. The only time I was happy to move was when I finally got my own place...and it still took me nearly a year to fully get settled in.

    Signed a lease on a new place today. Back into town, closer to shops, family and takeaway - none of those could be a good thing! 10 days to moving date.

    To be fair, moving home is stressful, even if everything goes smoothly on a physical level (no misisng stuff, move in on the date without any problems, etc), there's still the mental aspect of being a strange environment. It's your house in a legal sense, but it won't feel like your home for a while. I mean, I even have problems sleeping in hotels because it doesn't feel like my space.

    Moving is a chore, but it can be great. A chance to recreate your sanctuary closer to your ideal image, a new backdrop for your local adventures, and you said closer to shops! Congratulations Shaz!

    You KNOW it's gonna be a long day when it takes you 5 minutes to realize the reason your VX script is crashing is because you're coding in Javascript!

    Lost 6 hours when starting out because I didn't capitalize Math. Not only was this before I discovered VisualStudio Code (godsend and a half, I tell you), but it was using custom code in a notebox in a VS plugin. I got used to VisualBasic's IDE holding my hand the whole time and had never encountered the "misplaced comma" issue until then.

    I am really bad, no, I suck at scripting, so I try to do most things with events, and sometimes, yes, sometimes they work like a charm.
    I'm a eventing MASTER, hahahahhaaaa.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    I think it's good to try and do things via events. Being able to script can make me a bit lazy - I should probably look for eventing solutions for things more than I do.
    Why do you keep closing threads after 30 days? :(

    Not very handy for new users (like me) who try to find something.

    The thread you posted in was answered - 5 years ago. And the new question you added to it was also answered - by me, 5 years ago, immediately before your new post.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    But in answer to your question, we do it to keep the forum organized. Something that was correct 5 years ago might not be correct today because engines get updated. People who asked questions that weren't answered even a month ago might have gotten their answers elsewhere - if they didn't, they should come back and bump their post.

    The MV script calls spreadsheet is super helpful. There are a few tips and tricks in the other tab sheets, but it could be even better if there were maybe links to some of the tutorials on this forum.
    So who would use a VX to MV converter? Keeping in mind that MV files can mostly just be copied into MZ and they'll work.
    The Amazing Race Australia finale is on tonight. Hope Masterchef will be starting again soon. They're the only things we bother watching on tv, though I suspect I'm getting hooked on NCIS again. Anyone else watch these shows? We don't have netflix or foxtel.

    If you like Masterchef, Shaz, then on netflix you have a show called: The Final Table. I think you'll find this interesting.

    I now read that you don't have netflix in the title, lol, I stopped reading at Masterchef...
    I also like NCIS, now, gibbs, I would work for a boss like him, he's awesome.
    My preference does go to the older series with Ziva and Tony.
    And that weird lady with the black hair.... the scientist. (Abby/ Ally, can't remember).
    She's great too.
    House hunting (rental) is tough! First 2 places we wanted to view were already leased when I rang to arrange a time! Maybe today will be third time lucky ... having 3 indoor cats severely limits the options.

    I thank my lucky stars that we were able to rent a house from my in-laws, makes life significantly easier. I wouldn't want to go back to renting regularly, so you have my utmost sympathy. Hope you get a place that's perfect for you and the cattos!

    We rented a house from in-laws a couple of years ago. We moved from a house we really liked, as a favour to the family. But they were the most difficult and fussy landlords we've ever had.
    Aww crumbs! Just got an email from our property manager saying the owner of our home is planning to sell and our lease isn't being renewed. We really like where we are and were planning to stay here for another few years yet :(

    //Random knocking
    Oh hold on a sec, there's a knock at the door. :LZSexcite:

    //Goes to answer the door

    When someone helps you solve a problem, it's good to report the thread so it can be closed, but it's also nice to go back and post in the thread to let them know their suggestion actually worked. And, you know, to say thanks for helping.
