    Morning

    Everything hurts, for no good reason. At least it's only a 3 day week for me.
    Weather's damp here at the moment but forecast to be scorchio later on so might try and get out for a ride later.

    No mid term break here. They're too tight for that.
    Me doing shifting stuff in the garden and building a fence me.

    Tomorrow sports day. Last year Shorty won 2 and came second in 1 out of 3. Tomorrow is 4 events.
    Say "You can do it Shorty".
    Please note: I have not been practising with her, I don't put any pressure on her and I have no expectations other than 'try your best and have fun'.

    Desk driving and a minor trip out at lunch time.

    Might go for a ride later to offset a bank holiday weekend which in retrospect, wasn't that heavy.

    Reminds me of the guy that dragged his kid (8-10) up a local climb, poor kid saying "no daddy I cant". Not one to try on bank or school holiday's as its right by a zoo so its usually got heavy traffic.

    Afternoon. Pedaled into work for a change. A bit cool this morning but I survived. Same stuff different day. Keeping the apprentice busy.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Does she know she's called Shorty?

    Not enough sleep last night given I was up at 6.15am to pedal in. Now demolishing a large chicken katsu curry to make up the calories. In the good news a I got a link from one of the lads at work for watching the EL and CL finals on youtube, as presumably they won't be on terrestrial.

    Afternoon folks,
    Same old same old here. Telling some of the sales guys how to do their jobs is mildly entertaining. Early bail to look forward to.

    I'm just looking forward to bailing, early or otherwise.

    Office moron has been annoying me today, my usual tactic of responding to his questions with random answers while not making eye contact is no longer working.

    Hes meant to be the person we go to when things don't work but he spends most of his time asking me for help then after I tell him what hes doing wrong he goes off comes back and announces its now working.

    I need a squirty bottle and some Nitric acid, SG, can you recommend a non melty spraying device for hand held use?
    I was going to thermite his desk but its effort.

    Just leave the thermite on his desk with a fuse and see if he lights it.

    Currently being royally fobbed off by higher management, need to check tomorrow whether I can tell them to fark off and find someone else to mess around.

    Wouldnt be too hard to be honest just leave some stuff unplugged from the mains or mess up his cabling an job done. i dunno I'll work out something, current thinking from minion is just have an air horn an when ever he talks to me stare at him blankly an use that.

    Matt, cant punch hes a big lad I doubt he would notice, plus he's likely to eat me, hes the kind of chap that doesn't grasp portion control.

    Take the fuse out of the plug?
    Swap a straight cat5 cable for a crossover one? (might not work on newer stuff)
    Plug someone else's mouse into his computer?
    Plug an extra keyboard into his computer then you can type into his emails?

    Wireless keyboard dongle isnt a bad idea!

    Just alter all settings for a left handed disabled person with visual impairment. And also lock out the ability to revert to normal settings.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    i'm with mf on this

    1 acid is not a man's weapon
    2 nitric, meh
    3 with a squirt/spray there's a high risk of splashback

    for close-in, a knife is more personal, and no risk of collateral damage
