battle with a paper-eating machine.

Another thing I hate. Printing in bulk. I designed flyers to send out to Athletic Alumni and I have to print out 1,387 of them to go in a mailing. The printer, the only color printer in the entire building, however, has decided that instead of just printing 1,387 flyers, it must also print out 1,387 blank pages between each flyer. Because when this gigantic hunk of crap from the year 2000 gets too hot, it prints out a blank page to cool itself down.

Apparently, one flyer with two colors on it is far too much for a machine like this to take. So while I could be finishing up my game of Sodoku in peace, I have to get up every two seconds to check on the printer and make sure it’s not dying under the pressure of all these flyers. Sometimes, it gets so hot, that it must print out multiple blank pages before it will actually take a stab at printing the actual flyer.

I have more blank pages printing out then flyers. Since I don’t want to risk completely blowing up the machine, I’ve just been printing out flyers in bulk of 100 instead of all at once. God helps whoever tries that. I think the printer might just take out the whole building in a large red ball of flames and paper cuts.

I’m never going to finish this game of Sodoku. Blah.

On a side note, I’m also completely sunburned, our oldest ferret Jingles just passed away, and my girlfriend is sick. I know I will be soon too since I catch everything. August isn’t proving to be the greatest month. Here’s hoping there’s improvement (there better – Ash’s birthday is on the 18th!).

Right – back to fight the printer into actually doing its job. Agh.
