    Have fun!
  • where? sounds like fun!

    i'm really happy for the weekend.
  • Well, I’m now in Prague - who’d have thought? :)
  • The work bullshit is reaching new heights. FML.

    Enjoy Pray-goo!
  • Coworker woes? You had to fire them?

    Morning (ish)! Sunneh as a bastard, I think I’m about to go in to the office for a couple of hours now... *yawn*
  • how is/was prague? we've wanted to go there for years...

    the stuff that happens around here. somebody attacked the main electricity office over the weekend with a group of people with machine guns. you know, because some rich family needs to send a message...

    this is exactly why i don't start a business here - seriously.
  • prague was lovely, from what we saw of it. we spent a lot of saturday in the north of country though hehe

    i'd really like to go back on a motorcycle tour up there! roads and scenery were pretty great. and then down to prague for a bit of city life towards the end of the break...
  • Wanted to fire them soooooo badly, but employee instead vaguely turned it into it being my fault, because i didn't send them a text message like i occasionally have done?

    rage.
  • Yeah, I’d read that, but thought you’d still got rid of them. I can’t imagine an adult would really require you to text them a reminder of what they had arranged :D
  • everyday electricity is out by 4pm. gun attack at the electricity office. two days straight electricity all night.

    maybe this is a life lesson for me about how to solve problems?

    grey skies, coffee, the sound of my dishwasher, screaming people from next door for two hours now, the handyman not showing up for some works on our house for the billionth time...livin' the life.
  • Hello!

    Late to the party!

    Ha. Well, I guess their technique pays off... maybe I need to get a gun!
  • livin' the life.


  • that guy is a moron.
  • Morning!

    Wow, is he for real?!
  • he's obviously not for real, and he's not livin' de life either - has to drive his own car, lol!
  • I ALREADY SAID THAT I AM LIVIN' DA LIF!

    haha...but what kind of life, is it?

    around here, there are these people who promote this image that they are rich and blah blah. sometimes when i see them at the grocery store, you know, buying their own groceries, i will say to them "oh wow, you buy your own groceries too". i've had some very confused annoyed looks.

    anyways, today should be a good day for a change! i hope yours is well.
  • Hello!

    Oh yes, things are good here Vask' we have sun, again!
  • What he said!

    Morning :)
  • FRIDAY!

    it's a national holiday here tomorrow so the week is cooked early.

    bonne weekend dooders!
  • hehe

    laurel.
  • Laurel!

    Morning, morning...
  • That graphic is amazing!
  • Mum had emergency gall bladder removal. Went well.

    Haven't spoken to my dad in weeks, last time after his stroke.

    I suck, but I have my reasons.

    FML.
  • yer a wizard, slater! hang tight, it's all gravy, and you're doing fine, sunshine :)

    Glad to hear your mum's doing okay @slater
  • hello there :)
  • nice morning
  • my wife is at a cocktail event with the queen of spain right now.

    i could be there...but psssshshhhhh...

    nevermind. ;)
  • pfft!
  • happy hump day, y'alls! also, sunneh.

    kids' sports day tomorrow - rain forecast.
  • Morning!

    So, you going to be taking part in the dad's races then?

    The queen of Spain hey, posh. Some of my sister's colleagues were at the royal wedings, it turns out. She works for a load of posh knobs in the city (which always bemuses me, as she's mildly socialist!)...
  • hah! i wish - i'd be asserting my dominance for certain. poor other dads :'(

    also, lol @ 'mildly' socialist :D
  • wow to the royal wedding. how many people were invited - like 3k or something?

    there were around 100 people and the queen greeted every single one of them. at a certain point a person came up to their table and told them they queen wanted to speak with them. everybody (friends and colleagues) pointed to my wife when the queen arrived and told her what she was working on - and then they had a 10 minute chat about urban planning. she had a really fun time.

    That sounds good, for the misses.

    There were two guest lists - yes, they put about 2.5k in the grounds, to wave. But these people (sister's colleagues), were in the church from what I've understood (some of them own big country houses! How the other half...).

    Bummer re the Rain @chris
  • Morning!

    Sunneh as a bastard, too :)
  • quiet day.
  • Ditto ^
  • it was too quiet. cranked the stereo. i don't care if people thought it was a shit album - In Utero rocks!
  • morning! back in the office now. in utero does indeed rock :)

    i also enjoy bleach, though, so take that however you like :D
  • /me is now listening to bleach hehe :D
  • bleach is awesome.

    i was at the famous HUB ballroom show where nirvana was banned for life from the university. i had no idea what was even going on, and i went to the back of the room to sit against a window and watch the show. the floor is a true old school ballroom - people were moshing and you could actually see it waving like the ocean. the lights on the stage were bouncing back and forth. probably the wildest show i've ever seen (aside from a bar fight).
