Just had a huge argument with a colleague, in a packed meeting, over the fact that when the movie batman has his mask on he also has black make up on to hid his skin.
Reminded me how stupid, and unreal, my day job can be.

The argument was work related right?
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Yes.

We have a character who wears a mask for some time in the game I'm currently working on and at the moment looks stupid whilst wearing it.

I mentioned darkening their skin and features when the mask is on like the movie Batmen.

There was a reply...

and thus it began.

The most surprising part is that the person involved is management level and a very bemused client was in the room.

Someone has a secret hard for The Bat methinks.

Shit, I wish the arguments in our team meetings were about things like Batman's mask!

Just what I was thinking!
It'd make a change from all those heated debated about the correct number of links in a badge chain.

Finally the postman has realised that, if after gently knocking on the door and there is no answer, then he should leave any parcels behind the recycling bin!

...because after weeks of nagging, i finally sat down today and  completed my wife's showreel, and she's loaded it to her website.

Perhaps at last i can get some peace.

"You do realise that you booked today off, don't you?"

I do now! Hurrah! Work gear off, flip-flops on.


Edit: Oh yeah, it's only "sort of OK", 'cause I could have stayed in bed. Dopey sod.

Royal Mail lost the entire contents of the postbox round the corner a fortnight ago. My partner's mother didn't get her lovingly hand-crafted Mother's Day card, and a nephew didn't get his birthday card.

But on the bright side, they also lost the census form we posted. A guy from the census just called to say they hadn't received our form. Hahaha! Twats.
STRIKE !!!

Shit, I think I used to have this annual from my big brother as a kid - is it the one where Stark escapes from a cage and slides under and out of the mouth of a tiger skin rug to kill his kidnapper?

It certainly is! After escaping from a boobytrapped catherine wheel, he has to defeat some crazed Indians who want to murder their king, at a circus. In the second strip, he goes to India (in an unconnected story) and gets seconded by the British Government to humiliate a terrorist leader, with elephants.
