Memo to self:

  • When walking down the street do not listen to Gift Grub. Laughing to yourself is the sign of a mad person.
  • Do not sing along with songs entitled Bloody Mother Fucking Assholes while waiting in the queue.
  • Do not pay more attention to the birds flying overhead while walking to work than to the people around you.
  • Do not think that the traffic will obey the lights early in the morning
  • Never, ever, ever get on the number 7 just cause it is passing by at around half eight in the morning. It only leads to squishing and squashing as half the world piles on the bus. Walking is also faster.
  • Do not believe IT when they say something will be ready by the end of the day. It may not be their fault, but some small problem wil always crop up, multiply and then kill whatever new software you have been trying to use.
  • The photocopier will decide to eat pages whenever it gets hungry. Nothing can be done to solve this problem.
  • The internet may help you waste time, but whenever you really need it, it won’t work.
  • ‘I was unhappy because I had no shoes until I met a man with no feet.”

    Title is a Pratchett ref, ne? The disorganiser or whatever.

  3. Fence says:

    Have you also been afflicted Anne?

    Yup NM, Vimes' disorganiser. That imp also provided the final sentence.

    Your blog swallowed my earlier comment.

    I will repeat it and see if it just has something personal against me.

  5. Alan says:

    Of course, you should know that workplace photocopier breakdowns occur in direct proportion to the embarrassingly personal nature of the document being photocopied.

  6. NineMoons says:

    Maybe you used a bad word. Like that time Anne (I think) pointed out that Carl (I think) had posted something that was like part of a word that frequently turns up in naughty spam posting.
    Or maybe Fence's site hates you.

  7. Fence says:

    For some reason your earlier comment got held in moderation Alan. Not sure why, possibly a "bad word" but I can't see any. I'll go delete the extras and the last one so that you can appear to be not an idiot :)

  8. NineMoons says:

    Didja ever think that the name of your site is very similar to something Chicken might say about an attractive woman?
    Just struck me now.

  9. Fence says:

    I shant even dignify that with a response, apart from to say yes. I know.

  10. NineMoons says:

    Can't believe it didn't occur to me before now. It's not awful or anything. I think it's kind of funny. Speshally with Jayne and Pullo having a lot in common.
    I wonder if Firefly had continued would Jayne have found an Eirene? How many years could he continue on without doing summat like that?
    Idle speculation complete. End communication.

  11. I love that song!!!

  12. Carl V. says:

    Me??? Naughty spam??? :) hmmmm…Naughty Spam sounds like a great name for a rock band!

  13. Fence says:

    Carl I'll buy tickets when you get your band set up.
