On a "Happy Thoughts Campaign 2013" i thought i'd make a counter thread to the very british annoying things thread. So to start things off;

Lunch hour at work; means i get one hour a day that no one is bothering me with things, do what i want and i still get paid and leave early.

random lovely thing: waking up slowly, then dancing the robot in the kitchen while I listen to the hifi, my espresso machine and an egg frying. oooh yeah :D

Lunch hour at work.

Lots of employers force employees to take one, unpaid. I'd rather work through it and go home early.



Oh, not annoying things? ;)

I hear your facepalm, Chilly, but fuck all these random threads tbfh.

A couple is OK - but too many will have the effect of reducing the (already hardly buzzing) forum to a tiny number of active threads that people will simply opt to post in.

There was a time when "random annoying things" would turn up in *gasp* their own thread - and we'd all debate and/or laugh at the culprit/victim. Lets not rob us of the possibility of having people post someting nice that happened to them today in its own thread too.

The threads are almost stickies because of it.


Or am I being grumpy?

My new Nespresso machine I got for Christmas from the in-laws. Coffee is good and it is fast, so I couldn't ask for more really!

Also passing my exam today, with a fine mark, besides me not being fully prepared and expecting to fail it :)

I get paid for my lunch (half) hour but often end up working through it.

But then it's pretty relaxed where I work and I spend plenty of time during the day going for a smoke, taking a dump or getting a coffee. Which is quite nice I suppose.

I sat an exam yesterday that allowed an hour but took 8 minutes (the actual test is online as a study guide). As I am seated I see the guy next to me has 2 hours of a Cisco exam left. After standing up to leave he looks at my screen clocks the you have passed message and just says "fuck my life" that set me up for the whole week :)

That's not an examination. That's a can-you-regurgitate-facts-ination.

What's it for? :)

Avaya phone systems. They had to make it easy because of the unions in America.

I had a really good job interview the other day. I prepared for it and anticipated all the questions they could ask. They even threw a couple of tricky puzzles at me but I managed them. They said they had had 200 applicants for 2 places so I'm not that optimistic but I still felt really good coming out of it.

Lad I used to work with came back from South America with a spot on his forehead. After a week it was mahoosive and moving.

I saw the first episode once, wasn't in the mood for that stuff at that moment but looked interesting enough.

Sitting in a park in central london on a bench, having a squirrel come up to you, jump on the bench and sit next to you for a minute before scampering off.

Putting on a new pair of socks. Not freshly washed socks, but never-before-worn-socks

When I win the lottery I will have a new pair of socks every day, and donating them after use

Warm underwear. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

Or when you finish tumble drying your clothes, take them out and wrap yourself in their warmy goodness. Mmmmmmm.

I like warm.

When I take the boy out of his cot in the morning, he always pats me on the shoulder in a really adult "good man" kind of way. Makes my day every single time.
