Latest incident: it took literally five days for my work's moron IT department to figure out the reason for a problem affecting me that was spreading to other people on my team. I suggested something (which turned out to be correct) in my original ticket and throughout the five day saga, which was shot down (and laughed at!) by tech after tech. I had to get my male manager involved to pull in someone competent. And even that person didn't properly read what I wrote until I snarled at him.
I am so so so tired of encountering a problem, doing careful research and troubleshooting to diagnose the problem, and then being told I'm SO WRONG (hilarious! The woman thought she knew something!) by "professionals" in that area.... only for me to be right. And it's never acknowledged and no one ever apologies or says "hey we should have respected what you said and started there instead of fucking around ineptly for hours (sometimes months) and wasting your time."

I think the song is boring, but Malta's set/lighting is really cool and modern, esp for Eurovision. #eurovision

I'm making a ham and lentil soup on the weekend. I am kind of crap at making anything but chicken or beef based soups, so I am a bit nervous.
I want to put in brown lentils, onions, garlic, celery, carrots, bay leaves, canned tomatoes, and a small amount of diced potatoes because I love potatoes and lentils together. Should I put in another spice? The ham is very smoky (it's part of a picnic shoulder w/the bone)
I've been keeping my retired, bored, depressed mother busy by asking her to drive to libraries, archives, etc. to dig up information for our family tree. She's SO into it and it's really cute.
She won't just type her findings into an email, though. She has to put it in a Word doc and then send it to me. She emails me several Word docs a day. I finally got her in the habit of putting a subject on her emails, so maybe she'll come around on the Word doc thing.
