Whoooosh went the deadline... right over my head
I missed my deadline on Friday (the damn reports failed to reconcile) so I thought rather than stay at work until the small hours I'd take the work home with me.

This plan was working fine (I got a big chunk of the rule-rewrite done on Saturday) until I tried to run the reconciliation program from home to find I was missing some important files. Bugger!

It did mean I found time to play a bit of World of Warcraft. My Death Knight needed some love so I spent a few hours getting her up a couple of levels. I really like the new class... there's no down-time as you can heal as you go along. I've decided on the "unholy" spec so my minion is now permanent and acts like a pet! This has allowed me to solo quests designed for two people and survive!

I had a long chat with the Guild Master about how he wants the website revamped. This could be quite an interesting side project. He seems to have no idea what is feasible/possible (or he has little confidence in my web design capabilities!) It'll be good to have the site used eventually!

Sunday was the traditional trip to the parents abode for Lunch. This week: fish pie!

Yesterday a large crowd of my work colleagues went to The Elbow Room for a game or eight of pool. It is perhaps the largest crowd we've been able to summon and we had three tables on the go at the start. The night ended with Ioan and I (as usual) but with the addition of a couple of ladies from work, and the Tinker who is now back in the country after his travels for the last two years! I managed to put on a couple of exhibition shows (I managed to pot all 8 balls in a single visit!) between not sinking a damn thing! If I could just play consistently I would rule the pool hall... but alas I have to make do with occasional flashes of brilliance.

Today my guv'nor is off sick, so I am taking the opportunity to update in the middle of the afternoon!

i've always wanted to play world of warcraft, alas, i stay away for i fear an addiction will be born!

random observation: i think this entry contains more exclamation marks than i've ever seen you use in 5+ years of reading your eljay.

It's like working for the Yanks has finally turned him into an American.

Nooooooooooooooooo!

I think I was just in a particularly excited state... I must have just finished my second coffee for the day.

At least that is the excuse I am going to stick with.

Your secret is safe with me, bruddah.

Holy crap I have just noticed all the exclamation marks. I have regressed to an excited teen... and feel a tad foolish now.

World of Warcraft can become an incredible time-sink but I think it is worth it. :)

Pool seems to work that way. You play really well one games and impress everyone. Then you play the worst possible and completely embarrass yourself in front of everyone while you try to figure out where things went wrong. After all, it is just a game played with sticks 'n balls.

Sticks 'n balls

The way you say it sounds mildly kinky! ;)

Re: Sticks 'n balls

Hahaha, I was thinking that too....but I also thought that it sounds a tiny bit gayish. It could go either way depending on the person reading it:p
