A Working Saturday

A Working Saturday

If you read yesterday’s blog post you will already know pretty much all there is to know. Saturday 5th February was, for me, a full day’s work at the Day Job. Big changes are afoot in the company and I’m part of the project team implementing them.

Sightseeing While I Work
I started work at 8am and that was me until 4:30pm. Free breakfast and lunch was catered for and the coffee machine was the busiest piece of equipment in the office all day long. The office I was located for the day overlooks Lothian Road, thus providing magnificent views of Edinburgh Castle and eastward towards Princes Street while I worked. I took some pics, which I’ll post tomorrow once I get home and upload them onto my PC.

I was pretty tired after work and well aware that the real work for this project wasn’t beginning until today, when I would have to be up at 4:30am in order to get ready and be in the office for half past five. My plan was to do some writing and go to bed early to watch a film, but my wife managed to get a virus on her new laptop so I spent the bulk of my evening removing it from the system.

Larry David Annoys
I watched Whatever Works a film written and directed by Woody Allen and with Larry David as the protagonist. It was possibly because I was so tired but I just couldn’t get into it. I found it to be not that funny and Larry David quite annoying and unrealistic. His constant “witty” moaning managed to irk me more than entertain and I found myself wishing it was over so I could turn out the light. Thanks fully it was only a 90 minute film and I could do just that.

Look Ahead
Have a great Sunday. I intend to get out of here (the Office) as soon as I can and go home for a badly needed hour or two kip. I shall then get into some serious writing and I am already sensing an Indian meal on the cards for dinner – I don’t see why I shouldn’t have any part of this weekend to myself.

Before I Go
My Twitter pal, Kristin Pedroja, sent me this video in response to my Jedi Knight post yesterday. It’s superb, so here it is for all to enjoy. Thanks Kristin!

    Wonderful web site created for Gail – superb!!

  3. The whining in the film is just that — whining. It’s not satire, it’s whining, and therefore, I have no patience with it.
