Movie channels

Now, I'm a very straight down the middle kind of guy, happy go lucky and always smiling, however I'm a tad miffed. Turns out some collegues are in a local hotel which offers superior quality films of a certain debatable content type on a free film channel.

Now, the moral high ground says that some of these collegues shouldn't be watching this content, however I'm just annoyed that I never stay in these hotels and have to pay £8 a time should I wish to relax in the evening with some of the finest movies ever made.

Mind you, the hotel in question also charges out rooms by the hour, so maybe some moonlighting is going on...the locals have been known to be a little savage!

It's back!

As I am working with a new set of people, I've decided that my favourite green jumper can come out again. However, I had a cunning plan the other week - I bought some look-a-likes. It means I can wear them each on a different day, thus maintaining my look without sacrificing that lenor freshness smell.

I hate training courses.

I'd been made to go on one for a new application. Before we got started, the guy teaching it asked us all for a brief introduction as to who we were and what we did. As the guy went round the room, I lost the will to live and by the time he came round to me I flippantly said I knew everything about software and hardware. That'll teach him, I thought, and should make him leave me alone and stop asking me questions so I can relax and read my cartoons newspaper.

However, my cunning plan seems to have backfired. Just when I was getting off to sleep, the guy (muttering something about xml schemas and drawing diagrams - why do these techies always draw diagrams? I thought they were all code monkeys?) turns to me and says "and of course, Sam you'll know all about this".

Of course I did. And it was then I reaslised - I'd spent too much time with the geeks. So I'm off into hiding, trying to get my business analysis mojo back by hanging out with some fellow BAs and playing with models. Now, where did I put that airfix kit?
