End of old thread.

I did everyone's favorite activity, nothing. Which I'm feeling guilty over because I need a replacement for my current job. Should have been looking at new ones and sending out resumes.

But... how did it taste?


Surprisingly well. Not the nauseating sugary stuff you get in chocolate bars and sprinkled on top of pastry. Harder in consistency than I thought too, unlike the grated, dried stuff you normally get.

I'm not quite sure how to take this, but whilst picking up assorted groceries (ie; parsnips, potatos, broccoli, mashed swede, salmon fillets, chicken kiev and such-things) I also picked up a bottle of Port.. and then got stopped and ID checked by the lady on the checkout.

Then, as I left the story carrying my goods some venerable gent glared at me, spat on the ground at my feet before calling me a "F'ing nonce!" and stormed off.


That was a slightly odd five minutes.

Found an old (ok, circa 1993-94) chess set from Radio Shack, one where you can play against the PC. So will muck around with that to reinforce the fact that I do indeed suck horribly at chess. Fun day at work, trying to test a release and it's a wonderful mess of a choking DB, non-existent or nebulous test plans and the fact all these changes were developed 9 months ago :p

According to Wiki a "nonce" is British slang for a sex offender. What a weird thing for one random stranger to say to another. Were you walking around with your junk out? :p

Well it was equal opportunity for "sex offender" or "gay" depending on your generation.

And nope. General laid back jeans, shirt, jacket, bags of groceries in each hand.. Just..bizarre.

Maybe he thought your groceries weren't manly enough.

Had a ridiculous time getting my computer setup these last few weeks. My first motherboard went up in smoke and flames and killed my i5 processor with it. And then my replacement motherboard did the exact same thing with my replacement processor. It turned out that it was my 1200w PSU dying, and overvolting every part with it. So I swapped it out for a more modest 750w. Running off my third mobo and processor, stable so far we'll see how it goes...

Sorry to hear that, Bok. Hope the new one works out OK.

EDIT/ASIDE:

What kind of sub-moron, in front of thousands of people and hundreds of cameras, deliberately knees someone during anything other than an arse-kneeing contest?

Same one that'd shag his best friend's girlfriend or call another player 'black ****'. So disappointed they won yesterday, damn English are insufferable when they win anything. *shakes fist at the heavens*

I'd be so raging/pulling my hair out in that situation. Hope the 3rd time's the charm. :cat:

I need a surefire way to keep weeds and weed grasses from ever growing back in one spot again. Well, as surefire as it gets anyway. And for lazy people. Not the lawn itself. A dirtbed area. Seems like I'd have to radiate the ground or destroy the water table with chemical dumping or something, tho. :disguise:

Hoping to write a few thousand more words tonight so I don't suffer from Have-Risen-2-but-cannot-play-is-becoming-psychopath condition.

Got drunk with several of my managers at work.... This is an odd feeling because last night and tonight are the first times I've been drunk.
