So I got asked to make a cake for my boss at work. First they suggested a 3D Porsche, and after reading this, I decided that was a decidedly bad (read screw that no way in hell can I do that, ever) plan. So I set about making a Porsche crest from fondant and icing.
Instructions and Pics after the jump (more…)
change passport $150
- change name on drivers license $31.50
- change name at the bank
- close my old bank account that is accruing interest like crazy (not the good kind)
- make photocopies of important docos.
All of this so I can go travelling without worry that I have changed my name recently… sigh. Its so expensive!!
Ahh well at least I get new passport photos, hehehe
Well having just spent 5 hours of my life trying to work a Vista MCE remote I am asking myself why, why did I not research this more before I did it. Sigh.
I bought the Hauppauge PVR150MCE edition. Why did I not just get the normal edition? I think the name sounded cooler at the time or something. Sigh.
well this week I did a bit of a crazy… me and 2 of the other guys at work somehow ended up working thru most of the night and cramming 2 hours of sleep in before waking up for another full days work :S
well, thats not entirely true, its not like we worked entirely thru the night… we had many breaks to retain some sanity that involved…
- quake 3 LAN
- swiss ball soccer (highly recommended – just make sure not to do indoors over other peoples desks..)
- wrapped one dudes entire desk and everything located on it in newspaper
- a multitude of drinking games…
Ok that sounds like we didnt do much work but I swear we did. I probably got another whole days work in. However this was possibly counteracted a tad by the fact that the next day I was only at 1/2 productivity or so, sleeping on the meeting room floor on 2 couch cushions with NO air conditioning was definitely the low light.
And even better, there is still crap loads of work to do. Ahh. Thank goodness its Friday, woot. I can guarantee I wont be doing that again though. I have missed 4 gym sessions in a row this week
