Who figured out how to use if, then statements in google spreadsheets? This girl (with significant help from looking at the coding from the last viking week spreadsheet so thanks [livejournal.com profile] slumber?)

In other news, my new furniture is supposed to be delivered tomorrow, so by this time tomorrow I should be able to curl up in a snuggly chair. And yes, my shopping expedition did involve me assuming the "I'm reading a good book" position in each chair I came across, so I could choose the correct on for the activity.

You know what is not a fun message to come home to?  The we've turned off your gas to do maintenance but we can't turn it back on with out someone being home message.  I got that yesterday, but between crappy phone menus that wont let you talk to a person, so you can't tell then that it is a 'red card' like the door knob hanger told you to, and commitments that had me away from the apartment I couldn't get it taken care of until tonight.  Turns out the gas wasn't off so much as the pilot lights were no longer lit.  I probably could have taken care of that myself. 

Anyway, the commitment that had me away from the house this afternoon was the Tulane homecoming game which we lost miserably (31-10).  It was the first time this year that I got to see the band, and I will only have one more opportunity (if that, depending on what work rotation I get put on) which is rather disappointing.  I really want someone to explain to me the thought processes of the large group of girls in front of me.  Now I like wearing dresses as much as the next person (often more that the next person since I did refuse to wear pants until I was 10 or so) but it would never occur to me to wear a short little sundress to a football game.  Certainly not to a football game held indoors in a stadium notorious for its over use of air-conditioning.  I suppose it is a seeing a being seen thing, but really I don't think anyone is fooled.  I would think the guys they are trying to attract are also sitting there wonder why someone would wear a dress to a football game.  Not to mention I'm sure all the girls would look just as cute in a well fitting pair of jeans and school shirt.  So, I'm left saying WHY?

Rant - Why are people incapable of being on time.  I had two people lined up to look at my apartment tonight.  The first guy was supposed to come at 5:30 and showed up at around 6:30.  The second was supposed to be here at 7:30.  I'm still waiting.  Guess I don't get to go to knitting group tonight.  GRRR! - End Rant

I also figured out why the hospital sheets they give us are never the closest hospitals to the line.  When you're making the sheets they don't bother to give you a map of the line, you just get a list of the closest large towns and tell you to find hospitals in them.  Possibly not the most efficient way.

1. I have a new roommate.  He is going to graduate school for film and showed up to our meeting wearing a Sesame Street shirt.  I think that bodes well. 

2.  I bought a cute cotton  sun dress.  I've been looking for one for about a year now but couldn't find one that I liked.  See my general work outfit includes mom jeans, a wife beater, a tee-shirt, a long sleeved button up, safety vest, and a hard hat.  My entire body is covered in briar scratches and bug bites.  Seldom do I get to feel girly.  So I wanted a cute, light weight, not-too-dressy dress that I could kick around the hotel in, and I finally found it.  Then I preceded to spill garlic butter down the front.  Hopefully that will come out. 

3.  My idiot moment of the day:  My crew chief and I are in rooms next door to each other in the hotel (256 and 258).  When we got back to the hotel today he walked up to the door and tried his key - it didn't work.  I tried mine - it didn't work either.  Now this happens about once a week so we went down to the front desk to get the keys reactivated, but first I dropped my bag in front of the door.  Coming back from the front desk I notice that my bag is outside room 254 not 256.  No wonder the key didn't work!

I am once again in the process of looking for a roommate.  I seemingly have horrible luck in roommates, at least with regards to their turnover rate.  I feel like this shouldn't really be the case.  I'm literally in the apartment eight days a month.  How much annoyance can I cause in eight days, spread over two four day blocks. 

The first one who left I understood.  Her boyfriend proposed and she decided to move in with him.  Totally fair, I just wish I had been consulted before she was let out of the lease not after. 

The second, much, much worse.  I came home from a ten day and she was just gone.  Her room empty, all her stuff removed from the kitchen - just gone.  And there was no note.  Now if I had needed to leave very quickly I think I would have a.) called or  b) put a note on the table or kitchen counter or my roommate's bed which explained where I was going and how to contact me.  All I got was the keys mailed to me two weeks later in an envelope with out a return address and once again no note.  She still owes me $600 and ignores my attempts to contact her. 

Anyway, back to the roommate search.  It amuses me all the people to reply to ads who clearly have not read the ads.  I clearly state no pets, because my landlord does not allow them, yet I continually get replies from people describing how well behaved their pets are.   I'd love to live with your sweet, cuddly, house-trained cat but not enough to get evicted over.  Also, when I say I need someone to sign a year lease, it is not okay for you to be here for three months, unless of course, you want to continue to pay for the other nine months while you are not living here.  I could get into that arrangement.  Finally, saying you like to remain single and there for need an open-minded roommate and then asking for my picture does not make me want you living here.  In fact, it really creeps me out and makes me worry for the person you do end up living with.

Anybody know someone who needs an apartment in New Orleans for the next six months?  I found out today that my roommate is getting married and moving in with her boyfriend and therefore is moving out.  Finding a new roommate is going to be fun, what with the fact that I'm never in town.

    I have a new apartment!  It is terribly cute with high ceilings, huge windows, and best of all my room is blue.  Not sad blue either, toilet bowl blue.  Also said apartment is within walking distance of pretty much anything I want to go to, so on my four days I won't ever have to get in my car.  Score!
    I also have a new roommate.  I'm thinking this will work out due to the fact that we discussed European men in speedo's during my audition.  For the record, we are both against them.  Well really any man in a speedo, unless his is, in fact, competing in an organized swimming event at the semi- or fully- professional level.  Just Saying.
