in brief (but not in briefs)

Sunday: Enormous amusement on London IMAX Watchman trip (jinty's idea, thank you!). Forbidden Planet's tide has turned back to comics and I buy far too many, then wander to the river for ridiculous cocktails at Skylon in the fading spring afternoon sun. Watchmen is excellent entertainent. I feel the need to offer a tiny spoiler; the actor playing Ozymandias bears a faint but disquieting resemblance to dickonedwards.

Monday: Tabletop Pagan has her brief sputter of internet fame as Clonehenge decide to feature the miniature henge I made from p-p-p-Penguin bars a few midsummers back for my dinosaurs to skateboard in, in this post: Chocolate Henge and the Lizard People, just as we suspected. Who ate all the chocolate? I did. I may have given damiancugley some.

Tuesday: All afternoon, the faint tuneless boom of karaoke from the Irish pub a short vertical distance from my office window. I manage to avoid plummeting from my window, poignant with pot plants. When the Office move comes, limited storage space and the 8/10 principle dictate that I cannot take them with me.

Oh, and there's this:

re: resemblance. I thought that (just in the montage, with the Village People) but couldn't put a name to who he reminded me of at the time.

oh yes, he was with the village people, wasn't he?
Think there might have been some SUBTEXT going on there?

If you do it loud enough
it's just text

He does!

Hurrah, my extraordinarily wealthy friend! Perhaps you would like to buy this large but inedible sculpture that I own in the Wiltshire countryside...

thanks, but ---
I suspect you may be out of my price range

Two sold houses within 24 hours - are we starting a trend? Congratulations BTW.

I know, it's uncanny. If we have our way, another will shortly be sold -- to us.

Whoo-hoo! So glad you sold the house.

(What's the 8/10 principle?)

For every 10 staff there should be 8 desks.
19th Mar, 2009 17:06 (UTC)
Huh. I've never heard of that before. Is it good or bad practice to apply it?

Personalisation of desks, e.g. with photos or mugs, is discouraged
