Today, Facebook's IPO is amusing me.

I think Zuckerberg is just trying to cash his chips in before the balloon pops. Who would by that shit? FB sucks. It's an evil company that everyone hates. People go there out of habit, but are doing it less and less. Some of my FB friends used to be pretty active, and they do nothing now. It's like a wasteland in there.

I only hope that none of my 401K funds are buying into that company.

Went to a pub for lunch today and there were two fire alarms... the second time the place started filling up with smoke. Both times the culprit was the steak sizzler... bad day to be that chef! Haha. We just opened all the windows and got on with our lives like nothing was happening. No one even considered evacuating, lol.

The kids have been playing "Just Dance Kids 2" on the Playstation recently. It includes the lyrics to the songs on the screen, I guess in case you feel like singing along with your fly moves.

One of the songs is "Come Go With Me" by the Dell Vikings. That name may not strike a bell, but you definitely know the song:



Except the lyrics on the screen have it transcribed as:

Dumb, Dumb, Dumb, Dumb, Dumb,
Dumb bee do bee...

Heard Roy Hodgson interviewed today (new England Manager, we beat Norway 1-0 last night).
Now thanks to The Soaraway Sun's nasty headlines I knew he had a speech impediment, but I didn't realise it was coupled with a great Sarf London accent.

I fell about laughing.
Not in a mean way - I hope - but because he sounded like Dave the Dealer from Withnail and I.
I kept expecting him to refer to a Camberwell Carrot.

I would link the (Withnail) clip but it would have to include warnings for racist language, swearing, drug use and all that and everything.

Two days at the new job, all is going well, but that is just background.

I was writing notes in an exercise book, so they gave me a nice hard cover note book. Lovely shiny hard cover, nice design, corporate logos, calendar inside, then you turn to the pages and find that someone, somewhere, interpreted the phrase "notebook" as "book of pages suitable for writing musical notes" and have produced a batch of beuatifully customised corporate branded A5 size books full of blank music score.

Yup.






eta: the calendar is for 2010 and 2011. Can't give these things away.

In my session with Mars tgoday we had a warm-up exercise matching different facial expressions in photos, and idenifying them.

I was pretty proud of myself for finding a set of ethnically diverse pictures on the internet.

Mars was laughing at the face on his card.
"What expression do you have Mars" I asked, "What is her problem?"
"Her problem's that she's Chinese" he came back immediately.

Obviously an inappropriate response, which I discussed with him afterwards.
But the snappiness of the reply and it's flippant tone did give me a little internal grin.

I'm impressed with your ability to keep the grin internal. I would have cracked up laughing, I know it.
