    cba Monday.
    Didn't get much sleep.
    Stomach hurts.
    Sore from riding yesterday - that's not normal, only did 40 miles.

    Hopefully something exciting will happen later.

    Morning, stuck at work for next 4 days. Suffering slightly from yesterday's memory walk carrying youngest grandson all the way around. May go for a spin around local TT course later.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning folks,
    Had to drive hopalong into work this morning and traffic was horrific, I really don't like sitting in traffic. Many years ago I was told how dangerous riding a motorcycle was, I replied that I had saved so much time not sitting in traffic I could afford to spend 2 weeks in hospital and I would still be up on the deal. The look of horror on the woman's face was priceless. Hate to think how much time people waste in traffic or watching reality telly.
    Hmm, JIS screwdrivers. Should really get one of them.
    Need to decide if I want to change jobs, think I might do as I've had enough of customers.

    Everything would be much simpler without customers.

    Take the MF approach and give the second job to one of the other personalities you keep in the bottom drawer. Then you can haggle with yourself for a better deal and get paid twice. Win.

    Pretending to work, need to remember to post a shifter later that is about the high point of my day!

    Looking forward to being able to cycle to work again at the new job although I timed it very badly with the dark and weather and cold!

    Afternoon customer avoiders,

    Luckily I don't have any real ones so that's a win.

    Mrs. 666 seemed to think I could cancel going to a work finance conference (attendance compulsory) on account of she wants me to come home early one evening and look after the hound while she's out with Stropteen at some show. I politely declined to do this and pointed out that I'm not the only person on the planet who can dog sit with 5-6 weeks notice :roll:

    Also thought I'd see if I could use a mates 'Friends and Family' discount on the car as he works for the UK head office. Dealer quite rightly told me no way as they'd already lost most of their margin (yeah, right) on the offer they gave me. Still, worth a shot and if you don't ask...

    a word of warning though: takes years of training, mentoring, support and encouragement to get the other personalities to all work together. it can seem a bit Minions at times but it will eventually work out.

    Chugging special brew with anubis over this end of town.
    Bl00dy busy. Rode bike to and from busyness. At least I'm banking quite a bit of flexi time. Minion starts in a week. Plotting what she can do for her first week so as not to scare her off.

    Put the hound in a flouro jacket and pretend it's a guide dog. They can take it with them.

    A pair of shades and security staff who'll buy the story of a 'guide cockerpoo' is all we need for this to work :)

    You're drinking with an Egyptian God? Impressive, or someone has spiked your drinks.
