    Morning folks

    Today I am mostly back on form so am not going to work and will be chainsawibg logs instead.

    So this is probably one of my last posts before I cut all my limbs off

    Will there be a post mid limb cutting?

    First of 3 on shift. Picking up the censored from previous shifts great.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    The soggy splashing of wet stumps against keyboard ........ Thing is, the bloke I got the chainsaw off is really nice, so I would be gutted to hand (well, foot/mouth - whatever it is I have left) back to him covered in claret.

    surely you'd just jump up and down on it until it's a tangled wreck, then kick it over the fence into next door's garden

    no upper limbs required for that, if you're agile it'd be doable with only one leg

    I've duck taped a hammer to my head so I can smash what remains of it before picking it up with the spoon I've sellotaped to my chin and flinging it over, Highland Games style.

    I do like your plan though.

    As it is, the frickin' chainsaw has just fallen apart so back to chainsaw man I go. Good job I'm bigger than him and have a hammer duck taped to my head and a spoon sellotaped to my chin.

    As an aside, I'm just going to put a Pot Noodle on before I go, so it'll be all ready for when I get back. Bombay Bad Boy jobbie.

    That's a relief.

    Me going pedalling me - just as soon as I have had 6 coffee, 4 bowls of porage, a whole bar of dark chocolate, 2kg's of Cashew nuts and a nap.

    What is it that Oxoman does? That is today's big question. I'd hazard a guess that he works in the City morgue.

    Laters.

    Morning ladies! Started today off with a short run, continuing it with some paper chasing and desk driving.

    Lunch will be boring, dinner slightly less so but nothing to set the world on fire. Such is the life of someone in search of a summer body but TBH I'm more likely to find the Holy Grail.

    Chainsaw dead. Clearing up bits and sawdust I've already done, Pot noodles, coffee, weights, Hound walking. That's me done.

    had a break from wfh and serviced front hub on commute bike as it'd sounded a bit dry, fortunately there was still a bit of grease left so no rusty balls this time, now restored to grease-packed happiness

    maybe time for another cafe break

    Morning, WFH today owing to a lack of voice dam work people coming in infecting others.

    debate today is lunch, then weather or not to splurge on some new glasses.

    Where tf is VN? Maybe it's panic stations down in partsville as they have run out of biscuits.
    Stevo's awol - perhaps he's been murdered by some black manyoo fans.

    You need to duck tape a Stanley knife to the hammer as well, Glasgow style!

    ...hang on. Article 69 has been declared as imminent and the pound has sunk. That's anti-depressants for Stevo.

    Au contraire, my US shares are doing quite well :D . Bally will be a happy boy as well.

    Been busy, tax doesn't just save itself you know. Only one meeting this afternoon then it's out for wine, women and song. Or something like that.

    In other good news my DPF is covered under warranty so just saved myself a few quid :)

    secure access and the interweb means i can work from anywhere there's a decent connection :)

    actually used to prefer going in, but these days usually only 2-3 times a week for variety and/or meet people, some days the place is almost empty which gets boring

    the increasing number of communters and weaving boris bikers getting in my way is another disincentive

    a long long time i ago i was persuaded to ignore my first impressions and ok hiring someone on the basis of skillset and recommendation, "because we really need him"

    he had his safety training, was issued with his ir energy detection card

    still decides to go into the lab and eyeball a live laser port, presumably to find out if he can see ir

    trip to hospital ensues, fortunately no permanent damage

    subsequently demonstrated his deep understanding of security by browsing the web for cockrings over our segregated internet connection, everything is logged and i audit the logs, hilarious discussion between me and his team leader as i requested administration of some discipline

    some people don't deserve to live

    You have been less than complementary about the wet and the dry boys before, so where does that put you on the scale?

    Example of a moron at work, request I declined from a business account manager, he basically "needed" a popular online gambling site enabled for "business purposes" seemed very angry I said no.
