What "working" day? - The Paranoid Android

What "working" day?
Today has been amazing! I got into work today at 10:00 ... had an hours meeting (that nice alternative to real work) ... it was decided that we cant progress very much further on our project, cos we're waiting on a load of other people to finish their stuff ... we also want to "play" on the new system so we know how it works. We arranged a meeting in London at 2:00 with one of the guys who's been using it for a couple months. We decide to lunch at 12:00 and straight from lunch get a train into town. Noodles again (damn I love that place) we finish about 12:40 - we've misjudged it a bit - and end up in London at 1:00 ... so we find a bar and sit and chat for 3/4 of an hour. We get to the London office about 5 to 2 and find out he is running behind - can we amuse ourselves for 30 minutes ... which we do by raiding the coffee room, stealing a conference room - and having another chat. The meeting goes well (and lasts just over the hour) and Dave has to rush off for another meeting straight after, so me and Andy are making our way back to the station, passing a bar that does nice food, we decide we're a tad hungry (Chinese food never fills you for long) so we pop in and have a sandwich. These were *goooood* sandwiches, and were bloody expensive too! (two sandwiches and a bowl of chips : £12:00)
We eat a leisurely meal - and then head back to our office, and manage to get back at 5:00 ... I work for about an hour, when Andy comes to my desk and says "fancy a trip to the pub" ... that guy just cracks me up!

So I go down the new "Life" bar in Romford (which was very nice!) ...

Now that's the sort of working day I could do with every day! .... I might have managed about an hour and a halfs real work! Shame it's back to the normal crap tomorrow ....

I was very good today! ... all that time spent in bars and pubs, and not a drop of alcohol drunk! ... I started on the orange juice, but moved on to mineral water (thanks Sherri - you're a star!!!) which works excellently!
