Have you ever had one of those lightbulb moments which brings on a crushing sense of guilt when you realise that a big problem being discussed is, in all likelihood, down to something you did. Or forgot to do? By the time the lightbulb has gone on, it’s pretty much too late for you to… Read More 29 Feb 2008 – Automatic Guilt Complex
I don’t often blog about my pets but my youngest cat has to be mentioned. When he was a kitten he developed a habit of making off with watches. They would disappear from nightstands, tables, next to the sink and reappear in the oddest places – we found one half buried in the garden once… Read More 28 February 2008 – The Cat Burglar
It’s been one of those days. I seem to be having a few of them lately. 7am start at work. Broke something. Not my fault. Honestly. This is what sometimes happens when you work with ancient hardware, but why couldn’t it have happend with an unimportant server? That would be too easy I guess. So… Read More 27 Feb 2008 – Poisoned Arrows
Us Brits don’t normally do too well with showers. The one in my house SUCKS! The last place I lived had two floors’ worth of pressure and was fantastic. Then I moved in here and I’d probably get wetter quicker if I spat all over myself, albeit that wouldn’t really get me clean. So. I… Read More 27 Feb 2008 – Showers and All that Follows …
So – the guys at the office complained that I type too loudly. Can you believe that? Mind you, you know it’s bad when you’re on a teleconference and just quickly type an instant message to someone and one of the people on the call comments and says “who’s that bashing a keyboard in the… Read More 23 Feb 2008 – Noisy Me!
Maybe all the travelling back and forth has meant that I’ve become a little blasé about it all but nowadays I tend to be fairly quiet when I’m travelling (hard to believe, I know). I prefer to get into my window seat, check out what the groundstaff are doing, have a good nose about and… Read More 22 Feb 2008 – Unseasoned Travellers
Those of you who know me a little are aware that I’m not religious and you may know that I have fundamental issues with organised religion. I prefer to think of myself as spiritual. Every now and again, something happens and I seem to be tuned in to the world. There have been a number… Read More 19 Feb 2008 – Spiritual Callings …
I hate them. Honestly. I used to like them when I was a wee bitty girl and couldn’t wait for the day when I’d be old enough to paint my face with all these wonderful things. Then I got old enough and realised what a monumental pain in the ass it was to plaster this… Read More 19 Feb 2008 – Cosmetics
I used to wonder whether I was, in fact, a man in a woman’s body. I know this isn’t the case. I like to think that my masculine side is just better developed than some. I work in IT. I fix computers and I like it. No, scratch that, I *love* it. I know how… Read More 18 Feb 2008 – Girlie or Blokie?
An interesting day on the whole. I got to stare at The Beautiful Boy at lunchtime while I was having my lunch. And we had a few words across the tables. That man just got so many other men’s dose of Gorgeous that it’s criminal. Sigh. So I felt compelled after that to send him… Read More 15 Feb 2008 – What a Day
