Struggling, thinking of getting the IT bod to block access to this site.

 

Problem is, I'm in charge of the IT...

 

And that's before we take Twitter and other Apps into account.

 

Doing my best to soldier on.

I'm trying to find a job, but everytime I go on the internet I end up on here!

It's time to park the camels.

I have done very little.

 

I should probably be sacked.

It could be worse, if we go to war in the next six weeks, I'll probably end up in jail as an objector, solely on the basis of being unable to watch the Rugby League World Cup. That would definitely be a first!

My productivity today has gone from not very much (yesterday) to zero. I have also stopped trying to conceal it anymore. This has felt like the run up to Christmas only without the office party and Secret Santa!

Your secret santa present will arrive on Saturday in the form of a Kallum Watkins interception try to win the game with 3mins to go! :D

Let's hope so. Cos last year's Secret Santa was a book of RU anecdotes :fie:  (her heart was in the right place I suppose - bless).

Good job I'm self employed, I've done a little less than sod all for a week now.  Mrs Ponterover is starting to notice though, had to buy her off with a trip to a show in London next week.  Hope the theatre has wifi.

I have autonomously decided to work from home today. It is 11 o'clock and I have watched two youtube vids on the WC and done my usual trawl of social media and RL message boards. Absolutely shameful!

We're eagerly awaiting the blokes to start their "Northern Jobs" on Saturday afternoon.

A few weeks ago I didn't think it was possible to do less, at least I've learned something.

Well, I have 5 hours left in work before I start the first leg of my journey down to South Wales.

 

Like a kid at Christmas.

 

I don't mind admitting that s much as I've loved being a Wire fan in recent years, going to three Challenge Cup Finals and two Grand Finals, this still gets me far more excited than any of those trips.

 

Absolutely nothing beats a major International event.

Same here; Wigan have had a pretty good season this year (as you will know ;)), but none of that has come close to this.

 

International success means so much more to me personally than club success ever will.

Did they?

 

In my house when I watch the Grand Final back I watch the 1st half twice, which sees us romping to a comfortable victory!  :tongue:

Dave stop posting on here and get some work done. This is really distracting for some of us trying to get on (and look at the other forums)
