It's Friday.
Another exciting day at work. I tweaked the colors on my journal/friends page, so now they're actually colors I like, instead of the random colors that LJ came up with when I picked the style. I don't customize my journal much. But I'm pleased with my new look. I even changed the words on the little "comments" tags!

I was washing my hands in the restroom, glancing in the mirror, when I noticed a piece of dry skin near my nose. No, wait, that's a pimple! Naturally I leaned forward to see better, then I popped it. It exploded violently enough that it left a little splut on the mirror. Funny how something can be simultaneously so satisfying, yet so disgusting.

This just in! I just got off the phone with a server programmer in Cleveland. (He interrupted my journal update.) I had just emailed him a stack trace I was getting whenever I pressed the OK button on a module we had worked on together (I do the client, he does the server). He said to me, "Oh, I made one change, but I didn't test the OK button." He didn't test the OK button?!? What the hell? How can you possibly presume an application works if you don't even try committing the data??? Sheesh.

Remind me not to check LJ while I'm eating. I'd just started chowing down on my meatball sandwich from Subway when I read that...

ew...

Test

Test, we don't need no stinking test! I kick off two weeks of QA testing next Friday, yep, the day after the 4th of July, should have been two months ago, the application launch should have been this week but the users are way behind on their portion of the project which slows me up.

Re: Test

I regard testing as a necessary evil. I hate doing it, but it does need to be done.

Re: Test

I don't like testing either, but it's got to be done. I like testing other people's stuff where I do things like imput all kinds of invalid data, hit the wrong keys, etc.

Re: Test

hm, I dislike testing other people's stuff even more than my own. Although breaking it is entertaining.

I like your new color combo - and the "talk to me" change. You can also make the "comments" change to "talk to mes ;)

I changed my journal about six weeks ago - I call the color "Candy Elephant Peanut Orange"!

Thanks, I like my new colors too. (:

I actually did change the "comments" bit, but only to make the "c" lower-case. I haven't come up with anything more interesting yet. On my friends page now, it asks me to, "say something?", and then it numbers off the "somethings"....but for some reason I liked "talk to me!" on my own journal.

Yeah, yours is kind of the color of circus peanuts - cute!

Finally looked at your LJ format changes, they do look nice.
