    Lunch was une pression, accompanied by steak haché (grilled burger patty, but more than that...), frites and a salad Nicoise...

    Dinner was un cornet avec noix figues et pistache. Rosé only drinkable south of the Alpes Maritime.
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

      *other genders are available.


        HWMBO has made me a Mai Tai. It's delicious.


          As predicted, watch stuff plus iPad stuff plus subscription services stuff. New phones are next month - well, rumoured to be.


            A light dinner of a fishfinger sarnie, with HP sauce and a nice chablis, for a change.
            ents: probably more MURDUR in the village of the damned*

              Watching Food Unwrapped all about store cupboard ingredients: lentils, anchovies, Marmite, peanut butter, etc.

              Oh and HWMBO has just dished up dinner. Chicken and something or other.


                Ribs and chips for tea

                Might have some blackberry, apple and almond flan in a bit too


                  Tea: Tesco chunky breaded haddock, stewed pears and custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  Entertainment: the seemingly endless 2nd dvd of Alien.

                  I found the deleted scenes eventually which added another 20 minutes or so.

                  Skipped the photos since I'd had more than enough by then.

                  Next: Skin: BBC1 22:45, Skin: BBC1: 23:05.

                  General, Specifically, seems even viler today than it is normally.

                  If any day, Specifically In General, might be termed "normal".

                  When the fun stops, STOP.


                    Turns out the chicken and something or other is properly known as "chicken and chicory", a Nigel Slater recipe.

                    It was very scrummy. I was going to save some to have for lunch tomorrow but failed.

                    In watching Ep.10 of University Challenge, I am left wondering if Jeremy Paxman's red rimmed eyes are due to age or weed.


                      The useless PM (UK based contractor) organised a call this evening to see how go live was going (the first call he’s had since before go live)
                      He didn’t show up on it. He starts work at noon, UK time “because he’s busy with the US team”, then doesn’t show up at an 8.30pm call because he finishes at 7.30pm.
                      He puts in 10 hours on his timesheet per day, claims to be in meetings, but not with anyone that works for the company.
