Thank you, thank you… it’s great to be back.
Of course, “back” is a relative term given that I have been commenting here most days anyway. But I have missed you all, or would have done if I hadn’t been on here commenting most days, but if I hadn’t been you can bet that I would have. Really.
I think I have made myself clear.
Today I made An Enemy at work, thanks to my unruly sense of humour. Most of the time I manage to keep my streams of consciousness out of the workplace but every now and again they just sneak out when I’m not looking. I was being shown how to use a new computer at work by a training lady:
Training lady: “And this computer is broadband connected so it is much faster than the ones upstairs.”
Me: “And we can use any of our databases from this too?”
Training lady: “It’s a real minefield of information.”
Me: “A minefield?”
Training lady: “Absolutely, a real minefield.”
Me: “Er… is that a good thing?”
Training lady: “Of course!”
Me: (chortling) “Perhaps you should put some signs up. Like, ‘Beware of Information!’”
Training lady: (eyeballing me suspiciously) “What?”
Me: (hastily) “But tell me about these pamphlets over here.”
But it was too late; the damage was done, especially when my colleague Ginger and I started squabbling over the contents of our promotional goody bags (he selfishly refused to swap his bookmark for my post-it notes) whilst she was trying to sell us some on-line courses. She is my enemy for life.
And now it is over to you. What have you been doing this week? What plans do you have for the weekend? And what bitter, implacable enemies have you accidentally made recently? Share it all with us on the open thread… and remember, kids: the open thread is a politics-free zone…
