It ebbs and flows, its good currently but a couple days ago I had to explain to a guy who was prebooked to be working 35 days out of 38 available days why he wasn't getting calls to come in for emergency cover. Days like that tend to annoy me.

It was nostalgia at its best.  I felt like I was in my late 30's again and the world presented nothing but opportunity and wealth.  It evoked a time before Tina had a mid-life crisis and died, before michaels had a mid-life crisis and became a vagrant and before jeff had a mid-life crisis and ditched us to become a social media influencer.

In other news, as I am bored I have Shmidt Ocean on YouTube running in the background.

Basically live feeds from deep sea surveillance subs, with the audio from the scientists controlling it.

Very chill, and very interesting.

There’s a great thread on the rugby section about diversity that really starts to get fun in the later pages.

At one point, one of them hypothetically suggests England players could do a Nazi salute to support equality.

This made me chuckle - "committed genocide at the worst end"

As opposed to genocide at the good end.

I think the rugby diversity thread snowballed even further than the cricket thread that Joey had to intervene with.

My favourite part was the discussion around why people don't get booed for kneeling to propose or be knighted.

Morning, Peej, LIW

Wednesday first came to be known as hump day since at least the 1950s. The expression figures Wednesday, the middle of the workweek, as the hump people get over to coast into the weekend. Throughout the 20th century, Wednesday was especially referred to as hump day in an effort to liven up the drudgery of the workweek.

Morning all.  Just taking my kid to nursery when I noticed one of his classmates taking the knee to examine a snail - couldn't believe what I was seeing after the discussion yesterday.

I gave such a display of in-your-face booing my throat's still hurting.  Let's just say there's one little girl who's going to be reconsidering her actions once she's stopped crying.

Downing st is a long way from Greenwich Park - which as it suggests is a large green space and will therefore have plenty of pollen.

It reminds me. I really really do not miss the humid summer nights in London.

I used to work(?) at the Royal Naval college in Greenwich. The buildings are fabulous and amongst the most impressive you'll find anywhere in the UK. They are also very heavily used as a location for film and TV (especially Thor Dark World). Now one of the early years when we were there they decided that they needed to renovate all of the windows in the block we were in. This meant taking the windows out and replacing them with a frame with a perspex sheet and a little ventilator. They tested this is in a small office and thought what could possibly go wrong? This was also the age of the old CRT monitors that kick out a lot more heat than the modern flat screens do - and we were a maths and computing department.

It was a hot summer. Temperature in the offices was often in the mid to high 30's. Not nice. Not nice at all.

Yes, I remember it used to get incredibly hot and stuffy in London during my couple of summers there. It's a saucepan kind of effect I believe. Luckily it's not for long extended periods like here in some years. 2019-2020 was the worst. Ironically, last summer was not so severe and it was much easier sleeping in the lower temperatures and humidity.

Like me here I'm so unprepared for winter. I have an electric heater on plus the heater on the a/c unit which is set to 23 at the moment.
It's 12 outside which isn't cold... but I'm a bit of a wuss. Earlier today I was out with a short sleeve shirt in the sun. It felt 'warm' at 21 degrees C.

Getting through it, thanks. The tablets put a brake on the sneezing but the itching eyes are a bitch. Have used it as an excuse to up my intake to two bottles of Ruby Hobgoblin a night so it does have it's plus side.

That still goes on, every few weeks it seems there's another production. Does make for some good photo-opportunities if you can be arsed, from giant swastikas being draped over the buildings to women in Victorian dress smoking and tapping away on their mobiles in between takes.

We get lots of filming here as lots go on in Saltaire, which is a world heritage site, and I live in an old mill which has filming quite a bit, i can almost guarantee that a Chinese tourist has at least one picture of me scratching my balls in a window

Out by the box car waiting, take me away to nowhere plans. There is a wait so long (so long, so long). You'll never wait so long. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius.

Downing st is a long way from Greenwich Park - which as it suggests is a large green space and will therefore have plenty of pollen.

It reminds me. I really really do not miss the humid summer nights in London.

I used to work(?) at the Royal Naval college in Greenwich. The buildings are fabulous and amongst the most impressive you'll find anywhere in the UK. They are also very heavily used as a location for film and TV (especially Thor Dark World). Now one of the early years when we were there they decided that they needed to renovate all of the windows in the block we were in. This meant taking the windows out and replacing them with a frame with a perspex sheet and a little ventilator. They tested this is in a small office and thought what could possibly go wrong? This was also the age of the old CRT monitors that kick out a lot more heat than the modern flat screens do - and we were a maths and computing department.

It was a hot summer. Temperature in the offices was often in the mid to high 30's. Not nice. Not nice at all.

That still goes on, every few weeks it seems there's another production. Does make for some good photo-opportunities if you can be arsed, from giant swastikas being draped over the buildings to women in Victorian dress smoking and tapping away on their mobiles in between takes.

Best I saw was probably Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson on the set of Shanghai Knights. There is a scene on a 'busy London street' which was shot there.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz used to own a house in the same village I live in. Never actually saw them though and think they sold it.

Bond was too intimidated by me. Only room for one Alpha in the village. Also catching Galted riffling through her underwear drawer was the final straw for Weisz.

What Tino means is that the beta Bond caught me rifling through Weisz's underwear while she was still wearing it.
