No business like snow business.... [02 Feb 2009|12:20pm]
And another one - accidentally left my white balance set to very red, so everything ended up looking very blue. I quite like it.

Christchurch, Ealing in the Snow [02 Feb 2009|11:59am]
Enjoyed taking pictures in the snow this morning, as the buses weren't running. Could have got into work about 20 minutes sooner, but was enjoying myself too much. This is one of Christchurch in Ealing.

Obviously it's desaturated and I'll admit to twiddling a little with contrast, but other than that it's as taken...

I've got to go to bed, but I'm hoping I wake up to a democrat landslide.

... Computer [06 Sep 2008|06:26pm]
I've just spent a rather considerable amount of money on a new computer. I'm feeling guilty about this. I don't really need it. It's just consumer gluttony. I've got computers(!) that work okay - they do the job, but I want to do more!

To offset the guilt I've given my old G5 to the Mo Needs a Better Computer So She Can Play The Sims 2 Society. I could sell it, but I know I'm too lazy to do that. At least by giving it to Mo I know she'll bother me if I don't send it. Plus the excitement in the poor girl's voice - so very endearing. Or was that just because of the walrus she was going on about.

Plus we may have arranged for her to give me a house in return. Fair trade I'd say.

Maybe I put too much value in computers.

Who pays their credit card bill of £1400 twice? I do!

What a dick.

It's going to take about a week to get it back.

Bulgaria [18 May 2008|03:18pm]
[ mood | Bulgaria-ed ]

Well now, something interesting has happened to me at last. I'm in Bulgaria.

I've been sent on a "business trip" at the last minute, so I'm sitting in the hotel "room". I say "room" rather than just room because I've lived in places smaller than this - it's ridiculous! The bed is wider than it is long. All I can say is I'm glad I'm not paying for it.

I did considered asking to be downsized, because I just don't feel comfortable knowing I've got all this space to myself and some people don't have anything, but I didn't want to cause trouble. Also I keep thinking there must have been some mistake somewhere, and I've got the wrong room.

Sofia is interesting. I went for a walk earlier to take it all in. I'm considering this a brave move, as I haven't even looked at a map yet and I'm not sure I could even say yes or no in Bulgarian. I can look around and see snow-capped mountains in the distance, whilst boiling in the near 30 degree weather.

Everyone here seems to speak English, which also makes me feel bad - we expect visitors to England to speak English, yet expect to be understood when we go on holiday. My excuse is that I couldn't really learn Bulgarian in the week I had as notice.

I will keep people posted with my progress! Hopefully I won't die.

Why can't all spam email have the subject line "Cheese Egotism"?

I suppose if it did it would get boring.

My friends are still awake from the night before when I'm getting up to go to work.  That's just not fair!

It's 8:46 and I've been in work for 1 hour and 46 minutes.

I'm in a foul mood now, as whatisbiscuits will testify.

Should I still go out and ruin the evening for everyone, or should I hide in a hole? I'm thinking hide in a hole.

Right, so my early start to London is rapidly becoming a late start. I just can't be bothered!

Not having any interview experience is really making the whole thing rather daunting. I should have tried to get a real job at some point before now. Emily just ran through a practice interview and it was pretty awful.
