Spent the last two days cleaning, beating, mopping, polishing, dusting and washing any vaguely inanimate object within my castle, now I finally have every piece of furniture, tech, objet d'art and bric a brac back within the house and off the back lawn and rearranged to Mrs Nonek's satisfaction. It feels enormously satisfying, and I must admit it was quite a good workout, though the amount of dirt one finds on such maneuvers is truly staggering. Well another year to go.

 

Fido still looks reproachful after his hosing down and shampooing, but his odour is immeasurably more bearable. I must say however that the chores passed a lot faster because of the pleasing sight of Mrs Nonek topping up her tan, the pleasures of Spring what.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

I read shady as sexy

Walking home is fun, when it's cool still at least, especially when people walk in front of me and then seem to think I am following them and get freaked out.

I have upped my game ever since I got a dog.. despite her being the most affectionate joyful creature, size matters and people in the street who aren't accustomed to dog jump out of my way. Which works fine for me original.gif Edited by Tort

Happened again, had to get close to overtake and she calls me a douchebag. No wonder no one can drive in this town :lol:

Just got home from work. Lady GD just called, she is brining home dinner so nothing left to do but sit on my porch, watch the sun set and enjoy a glass of 9 year old small batch.

Dude, if this is consistently happening, maybe it is you and you're giving off a skeevy vibe. Put on a friggin hoodie! Wait...that may not help...

Could have been worse, could have been a couple holding hands and moving at maybe 1 km/h, after people with the baby land cruiser strollers those are the bane of my travels. But to be real skeezy is to be like an old coworker - used to crack jokes in elevator about how easily it would be to ambush people as they are focused on their phones while people are doing that, ah good times.

There's something magnificent in the sunset, especially on warm spring nights like tonight, i'm off to do the same after a few lengths of the pool and a large G&T.

Need to do housework but unmotivated today. Which means I'll probably snort awake on the couch with a cat on my face again.

Thinking about dinner already...something done in the wok I imagine. Maybe there's a new movie on VoD that would seem interesting.

 

Hubby wants a metal/plastic lathe ... I keep telling him we should build a giant workshop in the backyard for him, vs. the cramped 1-car garage. I don't care about that big rectangle of grass at all, so he could cover it entire with a tall/long shed or something, but so far he hasn't done it. :D

Tried to get my daily dose of commentary from theatlantic.com on my desktop.

 

Grrrr.... curse the mobile format fad.

The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”

So the excitement/chaos of PoE's release is over, the forums have slowed down, I did finish the game (and tried another game's new alpha), and now, time-wise, there's a slight void, if that makes sense. A now what feeling. :)

 

I need a break from thinking about (any) gaming stuff at all I think. Seems like a lot of new things on Netflix added the last month or so. Time to drown in some of that. If I can stay awake. But first I'm going to pull a few cookies out of the freezer and heat those up while pondering whether it's time to get ourselves a hotub. It just might be. Soaking in one while having a drink and reading a book sounds pretty appealing these days.

Calax you are a smart guy and a college graduate. Unless they are considering you to manage many stores getting this job would be an underachievement. I'm not picking on you here, you are way better than this.

Signed up for Google's new phone service since I already have the phone for it. Can't be worse than T-mobile can it?

 

Can it?

They can monitor your calls and data usage and then robocall you with advertisements.

A small bench lathe is quite space saving and can handle most small jobs with the correct cutting tools, the soluble oil and chippings do however tend to go everywhere. I'm not sure whether you would even need 3 phase power.

 

Happy Saint George's Day everybody, cry God for cumpets, warm beer and world weary cynicism.

Construction worker died across the road from us. At least they covered his body unlike the last time I saw one at work - they left that dude in his boxers out in 40 C weather for hours.

It's management, Store or Assistant STore manager would be the start but I'd try to make it to District Manager quick as I can.

 

Right now it's not about getting a job that suits my degree etc. It's just about getting my ass employed.

Got a polyp removed from my colon. Doctor is still not entirely happy, so he sent a crapton of tests to the pathologist. He responded a bit evasively on my questions, so I guess I will have to wait the 4 weeks it will take to get an answer. I can't say that I didn't predict something like this.

The good news is you are off T-Mobile. The bad news is you now have T-Mobile with a google sticker on it: http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/22/us-usa-google-wireless-idUSKBN0ND27O20150422
