The Friday Question Set — 9-10-2015

Did I mention it’s Friday … ?

Did I ALSO mention it’s Payday, for me?

Did I ALSO happen to mention that I’m working, today?

OK, I’ve a while before I start.

But I’m feeling a little … well … 

Rushed … !

To paraphrase regular Old Peculiar commentor, Debbi Mack: “Too much stuff, not enough time … !”


The Daily Teaser — 9-10-2015: The Music Of The Night … 

Wouldn’t you know it … ?

The OTHER cable turned up … !

You’ve possibly worked out I’m not exactly Mr Patient: and have a bad habit of ordering extra bits and bobs if whatever I’ve ordered from Amazon doesn’t turn up in good time.

I recently ordered a monitor: along with two lots of DVI cables, as the first didn’t turn up as promptly as I’d like.

Well, the second has turned up: yesterday, in fact.

Oy veh … !

One of these days, I swear, I’m going to learn … !

If NOTHING else, to keep an eyeball open on whether a vendor is Amazon, itself, or a third party seller.

The Daily Teaser — 8-10-2015: In California.

Hmmm … 

Remember me saying I had a job interview, on Monday … ?

I think I can safely say I haven’t bagged it.

Especially as the manager who interviewed me told me they’d be in touch by Tuesday, if they were going to hire me.

I think they were after someone who could start immediately: as well As do the four days of training, needed.

I’m disappointed, obviously.

There’s upsides, though.

I’m feeling rather pleased to have been interviewed: whatever the outcome, it’s done my confidence a favour.

And it’s garnered me a helpful or two thought, from folks at work, on how to deal with another.

All good … !

The Brentwood Gazette’s Weekly Teaser — 7-10-2015: Lucky Seven

Hmmm … 

Here’s hoping those get pushed through … 

Sorry, JUST had to get in touch with the Brentwood Gazette: just to make sure their push the version of this week’s quiz, live.


Those links will go live, soon.

At any rate … ?


The Daily Teaser — 7-10-2015

OK, now I’m pleased … !

Remember me telling you I’d ordered a new (ish) monitor from Amazon?

But was waiting for the relevant cable to turn up.

It finally got here, yesterday.

Which meant I could finally set up the new monitor.   (It’s the one on the left.)

It HAS to be said, the picture quality … ?   Is really rather impressive.

There’s absolutely no ghosting, static, what-have-you.

The fact it’s ALSO got built in speakers, and a USB hub?   Is practically incidental.

The fact my — admittedly cheap — new shoes turned up?

Is ALSO incidental.

But very practical: especially as my old shoes were leaking.

It means, given recent weather … that I’m going to have dry feet, walking to work …

Handy … !
