"There is a Sony Ericsson phone ringing. Probably a T610.. I need to get a life, right?".
Our trainer guy is a big nerd. I think that's great. Actually, I'm really enjoying this training course. Fiddly sql exercises are a bit like maths homework and I always loved maths homework. Seeing the correct answer appear and being able to prove that's the correct answer is one of my favourite things. Speaking of which..
I got a note in my letterbox saying that the postman had failed to deliver a package, and that I should pick it up in Ballsbridge, so I went for a stroll at lunch to get it. It's lovely out there, walking along the newly-cleaned canal and watching the suits take lunch, though it's absurdly warm. My anti-perspirant wasn't exactly up to the challenge of a forty minute brisk walk in the dead heat, and I fear that the musty, musky smell that's assaulting this room this afternoon is at least partly me. Yicky. I'm glad that I'm sitting beside the window. Trainer-Guy brought in a fan, but it's still sweltering in here.
Mysterious packages are exciting
, even when you're sure it's tshirts from Internetland that you must have entered the wrong address for. When it turns out to actually be a mysterious package, well that's beyond exciting. I sang that "these are a few of my favourite things" song a whole lot on the way back.the_antichris
, you are absolutely old-definition awesome, and also mean and evil for adding to my over-stretched addiction pool. I'm going to be still trying to find Antonia Forest books when I'm eighty, aren't I? (Thank you! And the offensively cheerful bears are charming :->)
