Today the following email exchange occurred:
Shirley (our CEO, with whom Wendy and I had just met): “Does anyone have an extra meat thermometer or fan that they could loan Sarah & Wendy for the summer?”
Logan (a fellow developer): “That’s an odd combo. Are they trying to see how fast a fan cools the meat down?”
This is the point where I immediately emailed Schmack (East Dorm chat, for those of you who don’t know) and asked for meat thermometer and fan related puns. I ended up using none of them and replying:
Me: “Have you ever tried to cook a fan without a thermometer? It’s impossible to tell when it’s the right temperature.”
(I realized about an hour later that my response should have been something to the effect of “No, no, you misunderstand. We’re looking for a meat thermometer and a fan. You know, like someone who is very into something. Hope that clears up the confusion.” Oh well, missed opportunities. In any case, the saga continued.)
Logan: “When I was your age, we ate our fans raw! AND WE WERE GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY!”
Wendy (and me): “That explains so much about you.”
Then it ended, sadly. Oh well. It was fun.
Later on Wendy and I were trying to fix a problem and we were looking for answers to a problem and we found a method of something (httpresponse, I think) is “Append Cookie”. I find this funny to no end.
(Note: Thank you, WordPress, for wanting me to include links about thermometers in this post.)
WENDY AND I FIXED A BUG. It was very satisfying. I don’t care what anyone else says, I’m taking credit for being dedicated enough to keep researching that problem. We had this thing where the output never changed to pdf or html or docx like we wanted it to, it just always outputted as “DisplayReport.aspx”. It was distressing, and then it was fixed and I felt like a BOSS.
Then we went home and watched more Umineko. We got anime trolled SO HARD. I can’t spoiler but jeeeeeeez it is good. Please watch this show for the love of god.
I think I’m done for now. Thank you, blog, for listening to my thoughts as usual.
