Shakespeare in the Park

Hey all,

(e:ladycroft), (e:theecarey) and myself are heading down to Shakespeare in the Park this evening. It's 'The Tempest' at the moment I believe, and kick-off is at 7pm. We'll be aiming to get there 6-6:30, so if anyone is heading down or would like to join us, feel free.

Laters, folks.

Rory.

1 year quit.

365 days, 8 hours, 24 minutes and 7 seconds smoke free.

7307 cigarettes not smoked.

QAR2,190.00 and 1 month, 25 days, 19 hours of your life saved.

I think I deserve to be proud of that achievement.

Sweet lord....

Here are two articles that make me despair for humanity sometimes:



There is so much wrong with the story above I don't know where to begin. Who the fark feeds Maccy D's to a 6 month old?!?

And then this one (you may have heard this on the news in the US - it was on ABC according to the article):



Not actually that surprising, knowing what life is like in this part of the world, but still disturbing nonetheless. Especially the last sentance:

'The UAE said the police investigated the events, and found that "all rules, policies and procedures were followed correctly by the Police Department", according to a letter seen by Human Rights Watch.'

I really WANT one of these....



See if I can convince (e:ladycroft). I'm seeing one connected to the TV with a wireless dongle streaming video and music directly from a NAS connected to my wireless router, downloading obscene amounts of pirated DVDs from the interwebs.

Mmmm........ nice.

In reality however, we haven't had working internet at home for about a fortnight, and I have no idea why.

F1 Diffuser Appeal

I don't know how many of you follow Formula 1 (especially now the US Grand Prix doesn't run anymore after the fiasco a couple of years ago), but this piece of news just made my day:



And as we're in the UK for a portion of Sunday, I may even be able to watch some of the race (at least the start) before we have to head for the airport.

I'm so excited!

Promotion

Looks like I may be getting a Promotion at work (subject to CEO's approval)

The interview yesterday was for a Project Manager position - technically a step up from the Business Analyst role I'm supposed to do today (which actually includes Project Management anyway). It would involve a grade increase, so a little extra moolah and I would FINALLY get business class travel again for work and pleasure after they rudely took it away 2 1/2 years ago.

Thing is, I don't LIKE Project Management. I'm a tinkerer - I like to be involved in the nitty-gritty aspects like testing, development, design etc.

Whatever, we'll have to see what happens. Frankly I don't trust anything at this company until I see it written on paper, and even then it's suspect.
