  • It's December 1st. 24 days till Christmas. Baby Jesus' phony birthday can't come sooner.
    Took me most of the afternoon but finally got my new mobile up and running. Hurrah!
    Why am I at work on my day off? Work martyrdom.

    Smalltime martyr - I took the whole month off "on leave" to save the company some money, and have been in the office everyday bar a couple of genuine sickies...

    I can't take more than 3 weeks off, but since I only have 4 weeks it's not much of a problem. Work martyrdom is bad for you.
    Another four hours and I'll be sober for three days. Three cheers for Mormonism.
    Sake - absolutely worst way for an insurance man to get drunk. I've been through half a litre and I feel nothing.
    Reading my mother's Asia Pacific trip diary: underdeveloped, poor, isolation, or the piece de resistance - "frugal majority"

    Well, I hope that she actually enjoyed herself. I also hope that she wasn't describing Australia when she wrote "underdeveloped, poor, isolation"!

    I believe underdeveloped and isolation was end of the rail line in Taiwan from the capitol. Poor was for the Kiwis. Australia was expensive. Tipping was a challenge.

    No tipping in Australia as a rule, although you can usually leave a tip in restaurants if you like. Minimum wage is now something like $17/hour, plus penalty rates for weekends, public holidays and over-time work so hospitality staff are sufficiently well-paid to do without tips.
    How I want to spend my Canadian pilgrim turkey holiday - on a bloody conference call about an external audit for Finance.
    Why did my staff choose to earn the ire of legal when I'm busy all day preparing for an offsite this week?
    I was dripping all day. Humidex 36. Temperature was 30 or something. Bloody hot for golf.
    Just let the Trump Hotel's spire fall to the ground already and stop blocking foot and motor traffic in the blocks around it.
    I hope I didn't bugger up my hip in golf. Damned hybrid making me think I can rotate faster.
    Man does strange things when donations aren't allowed. NY lady still hasn't landed. At least I bar hop on Monday after 12a.
    Not drinking for 3 plus days and then doing 6 or 7 bourbon doubles on an empty stomach is not a good idea.

    Not a good idea, but a great one.
    Hitting woods and hybrids long and straight. Irons continue to be a challenge - too long of a pause in strike position (checking myself).
    I did 7 meetings, telephone screens, conference calls and a presentation today with one 30 minute break from 900-1600.
    My throat tickles and I'm knackered. I haven't smoked for days and it's 33c outside - can't be a cold.
    Good God, bars in Hartford close at 10pm on a Sunday. Let's hope tonight is better.
    Although I went out for happy hour after 7 hours of work, I have been back for 3 hours with my office bottle of whisky open.
    Left work after 11 hours yesterday. Statutory holiday for me today, but sitting here waiting for a telepresence meeting to start. US&EU
    I'm bored for female conversation and I can't go to the bar on my off days. I guess back pages isn't going to help.
    States are off. UK is off. Germany is off. I'm at work with only the Canadians. Quiet.
    Filling out some termination forms on a Sunday because redundancies are on the way this week.
    Having a cup of a tea on a sunny afternoon whilst catching up in front of my work laptop.
