#3085341 Do you miss them?

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 08 March 2015 - 05:16 PM

Steve May always made worthwhile contributions to threads. His (self-imposed?) exile is a shame.


#3083502 RIP Ray

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 05 March 2015 - 09:21 PM

A gesture, whatever it may be, would be a true reflection of the esteem in which Ray was held on here. 




#3074832 Can you believe what you read in the papers?

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 19 February 2015 - 05:25 PM

To take this on a slight tangent, I have pretty much given up on the printed press. I take in my news from a variety of sources: Huffington Post, Al Jazeera and Russia Today (purely for an alternative perspective).

Reading through the above posts, makes me realise how inconsequential seemingly 'big' problems are upon reflection. 

 

I have my health, have kept all my friends and family in this year, so have absolutely no grounds to grumble.

 

To those who haven't had the best year; here's to turning the corner in 2015. 

 

To those who have had a good 'un; here's to more of the same.

 

I'll raise a glass to both parties when the clocks chime.




#3048273 so what's he bringing you this year

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 23 December 2014 - 10:14 AM

A jumper. 

 

Because I am a middle aged man with a job, so I tend to buy presents rather than receive them.

 

I thought it was just me. I find the positive, that is not being disappointed when nothing drops down the chimney.

 

PS

 

I will caveat the above, being a middle aged man with some disposable income, I usually get the things I want myself

#3040148 Fui Fui Moi Moi confirmed at Leigh

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 02 December 2014 - 12:32 PM

So MoiMoi's salary is known to all and sundry. It does make you wonder how all these salaries are known within the game. The HR/Legal departments in ALL RL clubs must have the loosest-lipped employees in any industry.

#3039588 Upcoming gigs

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 01 December 2014 - 04:25 AM

if anybody is interested, it was absolutely outstanding.

 

Thanks for that! A combination of being away and it being sold out has peed me right off.

Getting to 35 means you are past it. I wonder if Jamie Peacock failed to get the memo?




#3036737 £67000

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 23 November 2014 - 10:49 PM

£67k to work in London for however many days a week. No, it isn't a huge salary.

I'd rather have the likes of Skinner in Parliament, than not.

I'm bemused that there is an option to not participate.




#3021868 Uninteresting Trivial Facts

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 28 October 2014 - 12:37 PM

Having just been subjected to a remote Windows 7 'upgrade' I concur wholeheartedly. 

 

The upgrade got half way through then my computer locked me out. Now I am back in I find half my work essential software has 'gone missing' despite being reassured it would be reinstalled as part of the upgrade.

 

We use VOIP phone things so with no PC I am forced to use my Blackberry to phone the IT helpdesk despite having rubbish reception.

 

The joys of working from home.

 

I'm pretty sure you have just described my forthcoming Thursday, when I too will receive an 'upgrade'
