They've just put a new sign up at those annoying roadworks I have to contend with every morning on the way to work. They now say the work is going on until the 8th May. Which means their running a few month behind. Which in turns means if they do finish on the 8th May it will have taken them 5 months, thats right five months! to put in some new traffic lights. No I'm no expect in road maintence or repair but even being extremely generous I can not for the life of me work out how not only were they not able to do this in four months, it's going to take them five. At least thats assuming they end on time...
Right rant over. :-)
We had to throw all the windows open at work again today. Not because of more painting, but because they had to do something to the floor in the new area the otherside of the wall. We don't know what but it obivousily involved solvent of some kind as it smelt. A lot. Lets just hope that the new department does move in at the end of the month and our maintence guys don't suddenly decide they need another month to get the place ready.
We also got a lot of new books in today. Which is always fun. The downside is it's very tempting to start reading them, so I always have to put them in what of my desk drawers so I don't.
I saw a report on the TV and in the newspaper today about those polygamists in Texas and neither one mentioned the word 'Mormon' once. Could it be? Are the media actually get the hang of making the definition between us and them clearer?
Drat's brand new blog is up and running. If you haven't gone and visited yet, you should go and do so. It's quite interesting. The Link's on the right.
Institute starts again tomorrow and from the sounds of things we will be quite thin on the ground for the first lesson. Oh well, at least I can use grumpys car to get there.
that's all for now folks, tune in tomorrow, same geek station, same geek life.
