caja-dglh - Word to the wise: If you ever have to leave home before everyone else is awake, remember to switch off the alarm BEFORE you open the door. Not that I've ever done that or anything. Ahem.

It looks like I may be able to go back to working for my ex-ex-employer while telecommuting from here instead of the office in Maryland. There's been a change in management (again), so it should be ok.

The decision to turn the Hobbit into a trilogy is upsetting a lot of people. I've had this same conversation with several upset people this week.

Spent the time catching up on OTF threads.

gigantic wedge of cheesecake for breakfast, on account of a colleague.

refused's excellent the shape of punk to come on the headphones, and cracking on making the world better (for people interested in distance learning).

I remember when Ploughman's Lunches first appeared in the early '70's, they were dead nice then. They had crusty mini-cottage loaves that actually tasted of something, with a big slab of mature cheese, a proper pork pie, and loads of Branston. Quality.

**

Been on the horns of a dilemma these last couple of days. I've never yet brought my wife a christmas present that was in any way 'domesticy' - so no kitchen stuff. I've always figured if we need a kitchen appliance the family should just buy one, rather than call it a present. Well now for several weeks my wife has been dropping broad hints about a Magimix 5200 food processor.

Now, as you know, we don't have the cash that we used to have in our previous life, so that put me in a spot of bother. Because being that we both work freelance cash flow is up and down, so we can't just go out and get a food processor willy nilly like in the old days.

Anyway yesterday I abandoned my principles and ordered a 5200 from Amazon, now I just have to make sure I'm around when it's delivered.

I may yet weaken and buy her something else on christmas eve.

I'll take the opportunity offered by this double post to mention that my 'Cow Corner' blog piece on Joseph Stalin's speech to the Supreme Soviet of the MCC has been re-blogged as fact on a Russian blog.

I can only presume that Mr. Panchuk has limited knowledge of cricket or English, or more likely both.

Look, each to his own and all that, but cheesecake for breakfast? Are you Willy Wonka, or something? That’s just wrong.

I tried not giving a fuq once. I got all panicky and paranoid. Lasted for days, too. Now it’s mild consideration all the way.

I shared this on FB, but no one seems to care. This thread is a more appropriate place for it anyway:

Normally, the lights on the Empire State Building (ESB) go out at 2am sharp. I'm sure they're on a timer (but if you want to believe that an elf sits up there and flips the switch then don't let me ruin your fantasy). This morning, however, as I was feeding the cats at 6:45am, I noticed that the lights were still on. 'That's weird', I said to Mickey, who didn't really seem to care about anything but that bowl of food I had in my hand. I went back to the kitchen to get my cereal and by the time I discovered that Mickey had puked on my new rug sometime during the night (possibly because he was upset about the ESB lights being on) and sat down to eat my breakfast and look at Facebook, check emails, leave positive feedback on an ebay purchase I made a couple of days ago, I looked out the window again and noticed that the ESB was dark.

Kick ass, Reed. Let us know how it goes.

But look, as I told you before, this 'heart as a major organ' thing is really over. The future's in the pancreas.

Maybe they were testing some aspect of the system, FF? Or taunting night owls.

Good news, Reed!

The decision to turn the Hobbit into a movie and thus becoming part of my consciousness is upsetting to me. Fuck that wizard and elves shit.
