    Right you peasants. Looks like the new SJC route is also using the latest planes, and so the entertainment centre looks great

    So Deadpool, Eddie the eagle and then Zoolander for me for the next few hours.

    Bye bye losers.

    Rubbish at security though, aren't you? Took you quite a few days to notice the "borrowers" had "borrowed" (alright, nicked) your precious test network...

    I'm sitting in the Concorde Room, where they've never heard of you. Being paid by the client to sit here. In fact, I'll hazard a guess that I'll invoice more for sitting here on a Sunday than you "earned" on 5 days of your precious permie holiday.

    Ah. Permiedom. Paid holidays, got to love it haven't you.
    Seeing as you posted every day of the last week except the 8th you are either incredibly sad, or considering you recently said you booked a holiday to Egypt you are talking tulip again, I am leaning to the latter
    ôLive a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.ö
