End of the Working Week

Posted on 2007/03/03 11:56:26 (March 2007).

[Friday 2nd March]
I left work "early" this evening - in the new job I seem to have quickly slipped into the bad habit of working fairly long hours. This week I've been in by or before 9 pretty much every day, and have often stayed until 7 or later. By tonight though I felt I'd done enough for the week, and so after our usual end-of-the-week all hands wrap-up meeting (which includes free beer and pizza!) I was out of the office bt around 6.

It was raining, and Chie very kindly offered to meet me somewhere half way with an umbrella so we could then go and do a spot of shopping. I decided to wait for her in a little pub I had spotted, which is roughly inbetween where I work and where the flat is. The pub turned out to be a bit of a disappointment - a bit cheap and nasty and very smokey, so as soon as Chie turned up I made a quick getaway.

We popped into our local Sainsbury's and got some bits and pieces for dinner - I decided to make a batch of vegetarian chilli, which clearly had to be accompanied with a few bottles of Sol (it would be rude not to). This came out rather well, although I had a sense of impending regret over the amount of Jalapeno that went in.

Purely for geekiness, I wonder if we should have a "how small is your dock" contest, given what is showing on your MacBook's screen! Perhaps the old "less is more" should apply? ;) Mine's quite long and cluttered! (Oooeerr!)

Yes that did sound a little odd to begin with!

...but yes, just 6 or 7 items for me. Probably I ought to put a few more in, as I do quite often find myself going to the Applications folder for the same things.
