Hurricane is over. Rigs are back in position and working at warp speed. After a super fun week off, I am back to work.
Presently, I am offshore for BP on a rig called West Capricorn. All the previous BP jobs have been on Transocean rigs. However, this is a SeaDrill rig. So far, all toilets are functional.
This is the first job I have made offshore with my crew and equipment that I did not prepare myself. Instead, I met Noelle at the shop 4:30 am Thursday morning, and came offshore. Noelle has written the following incident reports about me:
|Brief Description||Engineer observed sticking a knife into a toaster|
|Detailed Description||An engineer was observed sticking a metal knife into a toaster. She was attempting to remove a piece of toast that was stuck. The other engineer and the operators intervened to explain the electrical shock hazard and she agreed to refrain from using a knife as a toast retrieval device in the future|
|Brief Description||Engineer using hands to retrieve cookies|
|Detailed Description||An engineer was observed using her hands to pick up cookies from the cookie jar even though it was explicitly stated during the two previous pre-tour meetings that tongs were to be used to pick up cookies. Tongs should be used instead of hands to prevent the spread of illness.|
In other recent events: I have taken two violin lessons. They took place two weeks ago and I have not picked up my instrument since 😦 As soon as I get back to land, I will practice furiously for two days, then call my teacher.
I signed up for the Rock N Roll half marathon in New Orleans February 24th. Training will begin…soon?
