While Flo and I were waiting for our lunch yesterday, 2 old dudes were on the table next to us having a conversation about something

Old Dude 1: blah blah blah transformational change...blah blah
Flo (loudly): He said "transformational change" daddy!
Me (reddening): Yes, he did honey. It's not polite to listen to other people's conversations though.
Flo (loudly): What's "transformational change" dad?
Me (quietly): A tautology honey.
Flo (indignant for no apparent reason): He said a tautology dad!
Me (to stunned old dudes): Errr...Sorry.

I am the mudder!

We're trapped in a cage!

Come on. Up this mountain daddy!

When Awesome Attacks!

Yes I am on a bit of hiatus from the blog. Got a fair bit going on at the moment, but none of it of interest to the internets (at least not all of it and not now anyway).

I've been mighty annoyed with work recently; it seems that to do anything (e.g. restart a server) I have to attend 2 meetings (to get clearance), get someone to write a detailed instruction sheet (and I mean like "...and then press the [ENTER] key..." detailed) or write it myself, get that "validated" by an "architect" (from a team called ARS...heh)...and all of this 7 days before I need the work done.

Bureaucracy. Gotta love hate it!

Anyway. Coupla things happened today which cheered me up...

- I got a Sony Ericsson Rika (on trial) nice.
- I am apparently known as "the device management guru"...[fingernail buff]...should get that as my job title!
- I found £20 stuck to some wet leaves outside my house this morning (at 6am)
- I am so looking forward to being "The Professor" at Es's birthday party it's untrue
- I have Friday off

I spent yesterday sat (or laying) on the sofa in front of a fire alongside Mosh.


Flo's got impetigo (the grubber little bugger) so she's being doused with antifungal soap every half an hour and admonished not to touch anyone.

Maybe bedrest?

Or cake?

I Am A Mountain [updated]

As Flo told me the other morning.

Another thing I never expected to hear her say is (at the top of her voice)...


What she actually meant was that she hadn't quite made it to the toilet and she was worried I'd step in the wet patch on the stairs.

I laughed so much I nearly fell back down 'em.

Let's ride daddy!

Chillaxin in front of the fire (note "cushion wall" so "Moshi wont prickle me")

UPDATE: Sanity in an insane world! Thank you Mr Brooker...
