Mittwoch - Midweek - Mercredi

Yo!

0632 as I type this, sat on a bench on Platform 8 of Watford Jn. Dude sat next to me is chomping his way through a samosa which, as breakfasts go, feels a little on the rich side. Still, it makes me look unusually civilised by comparison…

Today I was supposed to be in York for a meeting, but that was SENSATIONALLY cancelled at the 16th hour yesterday. So, I have data interrogation to do for our tedious Scottish soulmates, finish my interim review form ahead of tomorrow’s ritual slaughter and then leave early to do the school pick-up.

Yazzle Yazzle Yazzle, eh? Enough about me, hbu guys?

Srsly considering pulling a sickie


#3

do it


#4

Yeah, pull it pniks. No good ever came of going into work when feeling lousy.


#5

Zzzzzzz

Got in from work at 9.45 yesterday evening. Couldn’t sleep, now back at work 7-3. Shattered. Still, have Friday off. Just got to get there first.


#6

Nothing wrong with a samosa for breakfast imo.


#7

Indian food of almost any kind is one of the greatest breakfasts ever conceived. I’m about to eat some cereal and yoghurt but I’d much rather have chana masala and a paratha.


#8

someone switch bodies with me


#9

Morning folks!

Today is my first day properly to myself since June to go out somewhere. Kinda just want to spend the day in bed though as I slept terribly.

Plans roughly consist of :station: :coffee::bento: :shopping: :whale2: :cake:

Morning all

WingFH today and doing the morning and afternoon school runs. (Question for the dads: how often do you have conversations with other parents on the playground? Me: almost never. Maybe twice in the last four years).


#11

I’ve seen too much Red Dwarf to consent to this.


#12

I practically never talk to anyone on the playground. The problem is exacerbated for me because our daughter goes to a Welsh-speaking nursery and I’m not a Welsh-speaker, but there seems to be a bit of an unspoken acknowledgement among the various dads anyway that you just don’t speak to anyone. It’s quite uncomfortable.


#13

Likewise - very rarely. There is one guy, the Dad of my daughter’s best friend who I will aimlessly and awkwardly talk about sport with for two or three minutes, but otherwise I keep myself to myself.


#14

I dropped my daughter off for the first time yesterday and one dad walked right up to me and started talking about my car, and how he wants one. I have a brand new hire car for my work, so I just played along.


#15

Morning all! Got a night in to my self tonight to do a podcast and finish sonic Mania. But first I have to do a shit tonne of talking to vendors all day. Brilliant.

Then tomorrow I’m on the road. Cannot wait for Friday m9s.


#16

don’t scroll through the photos and captions on the earthquake in Mexico :cry:


#17

I’m writing up an evaluation report on some presentations… and realising that the guidelines I wrote months ago have not been implemented and we’re going round in circles. why do they even get people to do things if they just ignore them.


#18

Morning all, today is my wednesday. I’ve got 2 weeks off after friday, boy am I ready to not be in this office.


#19

Found a note from someone called ‘the parking vigilante’ who seems to have decided to lightly key my car yesterday. Mildly baffled. What a fucking nerd.


#20

Can this be @chris-budget’s new user title?

N.B. sorry to hear about this man, what an absolute cock.
