Day before Christmas eve, in Norwegian we call today the little Christmas Eve (Lille juleaften).

Party went on till 3 last night. Had to carry a drunk girl to my car, pray that she doesn't puke in my car, and have to carry her to her house. (The whole time I was carrying her I was just thinking about Carson, had him been here, his 42 inch bicept would have been pretty useful). Despite her 42 kg body, it was not an easy task for me.

So I went to the office with only 4 hours of sleep. Shouldn't be a problem consider that fact that I expect today to be a slow day and I should be able to leave early. Only to discover that a crisis was waiting for me. My boss told me to check my email before I even sat down and I realize that some of the files didn't run correctly during the test yesterday. So I have to analyze the files to find the error and then try to fix it. That took me the whole morning. The good thing is that I don't feel a bit sleepy.

Then my boss told me during lunch that the client have to figure out if they can run another test today after I attempt to solve the problem (the error happens when they push 10,000 contract deals into the system at the same time, now that's what I call stress test) So in order to test it again, they have to simulate this scenario and that takes time. As of right now I am still waiting for their answer regarding the possibility of running another test. My boss, who left after lunch, will call me about that and I am to stay in the office until he calls me. Bah!

Most of the people were gone by 2, my boss left the canteen and went straight home for some last minute Christmas shopping. The manager left after a dart game with me and the other people quickly followed. So I have been sitting in the office alone for the past 2 hours and waiting for my boss' call while doing some random monitoring work. It is so boring here that I want to sleep and puke.

Here is a song to cheer us up a bit:

Take on me:

We're talking away
I don't know what
I'm to say I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love, OK?

Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
But that's me stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two

Oh the things that you say
Is it life or
Just a play my worries away
You're all the things I've got to
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway

Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two
