How Are You Spending Today?

Fri Dec 23, 2005 8:33 pm

Im sat at my workstation in the office, beer has just been handed around to everyone, the music is on thanks to pandora.com and the food is on its way soon.

And the raffle is to be drawn in an hour or so.

Happy days!

You?

I'm doing even less than normal to be honest.

No beer here, but whisky has been flowin in some corners of the office for several hours now.

There's hardly any of us in though, just us hard-bitten technical staff who can't get peace at any other time of the year .....  Smile

I hope lying on the couch talking to Gordonsmall on MSN constitutes as a good way to spend the day, otherwise I'm McFcuked!

Oh, news just in. I'm about to walk to Tesco with my baby sister. Wow, now I'm going to look like a single teenage parent!

Hohoho.

Whiskey? Really? Can you send some down to the sunny (not today - bloody awful!) South Coast?

Probably going to bed sometime, since it's 6am and I haven't been to bed yet and am completely wide awake.

Waffles sound delicious right now.

Just arrived at work about 10 minutes ago (0550), getting ready to do the morning close out and book balancing. Then I'll sit around and stare at the computer screen until about 1400. Not a bad day, but it is going to be slow.

At the office, going home early, should be home by 4. I will then drink a bottle of wine and watch a Finnish film with one of my housemates. Quiet night in before the big weekend of partying begins!

Work till 12:00. Then prepare to go to a company lunch/party at a local restaurant. Then go buy some last minute gifts. Go home wrap presents. Go for a skate in the backyard before the warm weather arrives.

Spent most of the early hours on the net, then went to sleep for 8 hours. Now I'm having to stay around the house to wait for some family to arrive... only 40 mins late so far! Then this evening I'll escape the family by going out to see my friends at the local model railway club and run a bit of my stock.

Another fun day.

I slept quite long today, then I had a shower and went to my girlfriend's parents (where my girlfriend is staying currently). Later I drove back home and went to the beverage shop to buy beer, booze, wine, soft drinks, etc. for tomorrow because my whole family will come to my parents' house to celebrate Christmas (we always need many drinks  Wink).

I will spend the rest of the day with doing not much, i.e. surfing on A.net, help my father to install software on his new notebook, drinking beer, watching TV, calling some friends to make a few appointments with them after Christmas, talking to a few fools on MSN, etc.

I spent a number of hours in my laboratory working on my evil plan to wipe Australia off the face off the earth.

Then I got bored, and did something more important. The kitty litter wanted changing and I bought a new fridge in the (ahem) January sales online. That took up a few hours before I found it was cheapest in the first place I looked!
