Well just when I thought the curse of roadworks was about to disappear they've decided their not going to go anywhere. As a new sign as just been put up announcing that when they finish the current roadworks, some new ones will start at the next set of lights further down the road. Argghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! Has the council got a whole lot of money it's trying to get rid of or something, or are roadworks my new Nemesis.
Work was loonnngggg today. I have no idea why. I suppose it could be the caffine wearing off from yesterday, which if it was I've only got myself to blame.
I decided to do something different for tea and go to a resturant of the generic High street resturant chain that Engineseer works for. Boy was that a mistake. I'm sure Engineseers resturant is great but this one, well wasn't. Lets just say it was a good thing I wasn't a mystery customer or those muppets would have been in real trouble. Watching them work behind the counter the only image which kept coming to mind was that of the monkeys finding the monolith in 2001.
Institute was a bit different this evening as Bro H was not there and we had a substitute teacher. Who was very good but spent too long on the first lesson and had to massively rush the second lesson.
There was also talk about the institute graduation ball. It's still a sixties theme but it seems somewhat late in the day that there could cause a problem. So the posters now say it's a sixties theme and themed dress should be worn but it also needs to confirm to the standards in the strength of youth booklet. There was a lot of discussion if it would be possible for the two to successfully mesh or if it might be a good cause. Aspiring Angel did ask jokingly if this was going to disappoint anybody who was planning to come in a mini-skirt. Several girls put up their hands to claim they had been thinking about it.....as did Engineseer. Who was joking just like the girls.........I hope.
The other problem is that their trying to organise the ball by commitee(never a good idea) this time. So one stake responsible for music, one for decorations,etc. The stake responsible for inviting people have apparently invited stakes outside of our area and also on facebook made reference to this years ball saying it will be great unlike the previous couple of years which were rubbish.
Which is when Leicester organised them by ourselves.
Engineseer is not impressed.
and you don't annoy a uber geek. We have patience. We will get you back in some form or another. Mwah, ha, ha, ha, ha......
I think it's safe to say one way or another this is going to be one interesting dance.
Grumpy was also out tonight as Media had come up to visit. He's working at a garden centre in Northampton for a little while so he thought he would come up and see us as he's now a lot closer. Well then he was at least :-)
see you tomorrow folks, same geek life, same geek channel.
