Work 

boost if someone calling you a radical leftist is a compliment

I've got an electrician coming to do some work this week, and had to send this message....

"The electrician may hear an alarm inside when the power is turned off. Just the UPS on the fish tank. Nothing to be worried about."

Because, of course.

Library folk, a question/request...

I'm looking for some of those old-fashioned library book slips. The older the better. Unused would be awesome.

Got any just hanging around that you'd like to declutter from your life? HMU.

I'm babysitting Pi. My brother's off on an overseas holiday, so I am looking after the little boy for a few weeks. He hasn't decided to be friendly yet

I met a friend's parents for the first time today.

I'm nearly 50, been married and divorced, bought and sold houses, quite successful in my career... yet still felt like I was 18 somehow.

How old do I have to be before I feel like an adult?

Pi has just come inside to inform me it is raining.

Not pictured: happy, wet cat.

It's my birthday can I get some boosts??

I just realised I haven't eaten since breakfast. Best get on to that!

I am full of sadness.

The rest of the team are off doing a team-bonding Escape Room thing (which was my pick, and something I've wanted to do for years), but I am home in bed with a head full of marshmallow and the throat virusy thing of last week making a last ditch effort to kill me.

when you think about it, the idea that software should scale is actually really weird. "sure this garden is nice, but how nice can it be if it doesn't grow to cover the entire surface of the earth?"
