DAMN but I want to punch the designers of the PayPal interface in the face. I'm trying to get in and set up a shopping cart with them - and I know it's possible because I GOT HALFWAY THROUGH IT YESTERDAY - but there is NO intuitive link to click to set one up. Everything I click either ends up as a set of pages designed to demo the merchant tools to me, or to a page that logs me out and asks me to set up a Paypal account, which I ALREADY HAVE.

GAH. I mean, I GOT TO IT YESTERDAY although I have NO IDEA how. PAYPAL! I WANT TO GIVE YOU MONEY! WHY ARE YOU MAKING IT HARD FOR ME TO GIVE YOU MONEY?


(Once I have time, I'm going to set up ZenCart, which will allow me to offer Google merchant services as well as Paypal, but for now Paypal is it.)

ETA: OK, I *think* I ahve it figured out now. You have to go to the Merchant Services tab, and the go down to the ad that wants to describe the benefits of selling through PayPal to you, and then click on the teeeeny little "Shopping Cart" link under "Features".

God only knows why they can't put those links oh, say, NOT IN AN AD, but there you have it.

Ugh

5:45 and the party that was advertised to end at 5 is still going on, still alternating hip-hop and country with the occasional classic rock. I phoned the office at 5:30, intending to sweetly inquire if I was wrong in my assumption that the party was supposed to end at 5, but nobody was answering the phones, so I left a message that was a wee bit stronger, registering my annoyance at the advertising saying 5 and the noise still on at 6. If it's still going at 6, I may make my way over there and find one of the apartment office people.

I'm wearing earplugs and I can still hear the damn music.

ETA: 5:55 and they seem to have stopped. Hopefully.

Why didn't I follow my first impulse and attempt to trade my Saturday shift on the ref desk for Sunday when I found out that my apartment complex was going to be having a live DJ out at the pool today? The party is supposed to be from 2 until 5, but it's 12:30, they're testing, and they've unnerved the cat enought hat she's following me around.

And today I was going to do things like writing. Hah. It's times like this that I wish I had a laptop with wireless, but it looks like I'm going to have to do the low-tech thing of finding paper and pen and going somewhere to sit for three hours. Arg.

P.S. I hate coffee and there's only so much tea I can drink. Coffeehouses are not for me.

ugh

My internet connection went down last night. I ahve no clue if it'll be back up tonight when I get home from work; if it isn't, I'll be spending quite some time on the phone with tech support. :P
