I have nice friends

(viewed 787 times)
Because they give me their hand-me-down ipods! I really wanted a smurf-blue one as well! AND I beat her own 6-year-old child to it *blows raspberries at the blond kid*! Thanks Stefny!

Things that shouldn't happen

(viewed 818 times)
On Sunday:
Part one: Mowing the cable of your lawnmower. Doh!
Part two: Watching your mother-in-law attack your husband's shoulders with an epilator!

Big nose

This is the navigator-dog from the front. I have papers that certify she is a pedigree Scottish Terrier but I have my doubts. I think she may be some kind of rare Central American long-eared fruit bat with a disproportionately huge schnose! She is a loon, but a gorgeous loon.

New toy

Not my new toy, it's the other half's. I zoned out within about 3 seconds of his explanation of what this actually is, but it's some kind of bass guitar pedal. Apparently it's amazing but I have no idea why... I just think it's really pretty!

Sod headaches

(viewed 815 times)
Friday frikkin' night, I've been at work all week and NOW my head decides it's had enough, it couldn't possibly allow me to relax or go out or anything, noo. From the top, my view from my bed, me in pain, and the tablets that just don't seem to be working, dammit. And I shall shortly be rendering myself blind from this weird compulsion to stare at a computer screen to blog this agony! Argh!

The only perk of my job

(viewed 735 times)
...and to be fair, it's a pretty mighty perk, is that I get free booze! The rest of working for a brewery isn't so great but hey ho, never look a gift horse in the mouth etc.

At work today...

(viewed 696 times)
I have this sign above my desk. I was also greeted with the terrifying sight of Beer Mat Collectors blocking the way betwixt the door and my car. One such "enthusiast" had obviously just driven over from the Netherlands to play swaps with fellow nerds!!

Chessman and Roof

(viewed 860 times)
My tortured soul! I used to work here and see these things every day! Just managed a quick visit on a conference trip the other weekend. The interior of the Royal Museum in Edinburgh and The Lewis Chessmen, who are just groovetastic little dudes. I miss them...
