    I have an almost uncontrollable urge to cut them off when I see such things in the lab.
    No, just copious facial hair. He hasn't even got a waxed moustache, or at least not on Tuesdays around 6pm, which is the only day and time I have to go on

    It must be said that the gentleperson in question can be quite amusing at times.

    I particularly like the way he spends his time picking up litter.

    Very quaint.

    Following on from yesterday's desk rearrangement shenanigans, I have finally got around to hauling the 34" 16:9 monitor (which had been serving as a TV until I got a TV) across the room and connecting it up to the 27" 5K iMac. The amount of screen real estate I now have is ridiculous

    As long as you don't mention "Bob" you should be ok.

    I deal with idiot BAs, Scrum Masters and PMs of all nationalities. In fact I would say the only intelligent people, as a nationality, I work with are Polish. I don't know what they do with the stupid ones....

    Ribs and chips for tea

    No sign of any rain here, and it's still very close. Apparently there's a slight chance we may get some overnight, which usually turns out to mean in the morning just as I set off for ClientCo, and then following me east

    This evening's entertainment was "My Man Godfrey" with William Powell and Carole Lombard.

    My Man Godfrey (1936) - IMDb

    It was rather good.

    Followed by S14 Ep19 of NCIS. Which had rather too much of the increasingly irritating Abby.

    Oh, indeed.

    I remember it.

    However it wasn't on every fecking programme that they put out.

    I'm all for gay lib, but FFS give it a bit of a rest.

    Just heard a plane flying overhead. Went on Planefinder, and it turns out it's a flight from Edinburgh to Cologne that's made a sharp turn just north of here, doubled back and is now heading south. Looks like this is so it can dodge round the bottom of the storms in the vicinity of London, which its previous course would have taken it straight into
