My new Compy arived today, 4 days early and the boss let me go home at lunch and its a long weekend :) :) :)
I like Dell, its one of them Studio XPS 8100 but with a bit added, upgraded the prossesor to an I7 2.8, put in the bigger Graphics card and wacked 8 gig of Ram into it.
Best of all its a Tax time bonus from my boss, i didn't have to pay a cent.

F%$k it, life isn't sort of okay life rocks at the moment.

I've got a new phone that lets me do internet type things. So I can look at this site while I'm on my long commute (and I don't have to worry about looking at threads like 2000ad The Porno at work).

I haven't figured out how to get the little spugger to show pictures on some sites yet (myfamily, here, facebook) but I'm working on it.

This also means I can work on scripts and email them to people from the train. So bad news for some of you.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I was supposed to be going to a piss-up after work today because somebody was leaving. But I hate those things. Absolutely despise them. I was dreading it all day and then, when I clocked out and got into my car...I just said fuck it and went home instead! And it felt marvellous. Of course next week they'll all be saying "what happened to you on Friday, Mr. Anti Social" but I don't care. I have three whole days to come up with a legitimate reason! :lol:

How about "I tolerate you as acceptable workmates, but I don't actually like you or want to waste valuable social time on you"

Today I had to awkwardly avoid the whip round for a workmate I don't like who has just had an (unplanned) baby. Bollox to that, I can barely keep up with the constant birthday rota!

You could pull down your trousers and say "I've got a legitimate reason RIGHT HERE".

Today I had to awkwardly avoid the whip round for a workmate I don't like…

Bloody work whip-arounds. At a previous workplace a group had gone out to the pub one evening and a work volunteer had her mobile phone knicked so some bright spark the next day organised a collection for her to get a new one. Very tricky in an open plan office to say "well shouldn't she look after her belongings then – WTF has that got to do with me?" I would see some of that crowd in the boozer just dump their bags on the floor and then be surprised when their stuff would go missing.

At another workplace a student was doing an unpaid placement and the bosses suggested we all chip in everyday to buy lunch for the intern!!

I had 2 very simple rules, back when I had a job.
1) I don't do work outings. Work time is work time and my time is my time.
2) If I like someone I'll chip in for a birthday or leaving gift. If I don't like them I won't. I will not tolerate comments if the answer is no.

I worked there for over a decade and most of the longtimers knew the score but there was always one or two newbies that needed 'educating'.

 In my defence though, I would never try to claim credit. If I didn't chip in then I wouldn't sign the card and would make it known to the person if they thanked me that I hadn't participated. Since this effectively told them I didn't like them, a couple of colleagues last days ended on a sour note. Ah well.

That was my philosophy in the army, I kept my civvy life totally separate. I had far too many skeletons that if entwined would have been devastating. Even now certain events could be catastrophic.
I even got a death threat letter off a woman once.

I just texted FiveLive and Clare Balding read it out but didn't know what "opiate" meant, so my point was kind of lost.

Dear Clare, I am a regular listener to your programme. It helps me to cope with the withdrawal now that I'm trying to put my opiate addiction behind me.
STRIKE !!!
