Uninteresting Trivial Facts


Recommended Posts

Worked a night shift last night, and all I had to do was attend a "Cardiac Arrest", that turned out to be a hypo-glycaemic attack, and Resus for a bloke who got pushed through a pub window (With no witness's!), and did nothing because he didn't need anything doing to him apart from stapling his head lacerations up (Done by A&E SHO).

Today (Mon) I am on a strange shift, 1300-1800, which is fine because i) it gives me a lie-in and ii) I can watch Penrith v St George Illawarra on Premier Sports, after 60 it's 12-0

Some kind gentlemen bought me many glasses of Laphroaig from lunchtime onwards :)

Also, I may have actually posted something on Facebook... I don't think this social networking caper is really suited for miserable northern folk...

I almost bought a bottle of that yesterday evening, but plumped for the Sainsbury Own Brand Islay single malt. At just 20 quid, it's a Caol Ila under a flag of convenience and very nice.

I arrived at the library today only to discover that I forgot to bring a pen. Grrr.

Just back from 14 nights on holiday in Malaysia. I now have a new favourite holiday destination! Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang in Penang

The premier side of the resort (Rasa Wing) is proper old-style 5* service with exemplary staff

The inclusive bits of the Rasa Wing include high-tea (3-4pm) and free cocktails (6-7pm) where they certainly don't skimp on the quantity or quality like most other places with their "inclusive" content. A key benefit for us was the separate pool in this section that was strictly no children or loud behaviour meaning it was a perfectly peaceful place to sit with a drink and a book.

Pricey but it was certainly worth every penny.

2 years ago we stayed at the Royal Decameron in Jamaica, Fully Inclusive resort, with 3 pools, one of them Child Free, and it was bliss, as the Yank kids were too loud.

Proper inclusive drinks (Local of course) which included "Overproof" rum (80%). 3 big meals per day, watersports, and a complimentary bus to Ocho Rios

Very Nice, except for the name D. Cameron!

I've regretted that stuff at leisure on more than one occasion.

I got told off today for saving my client £60,000 and lots of extra goodies thrown in free. Finance guy got really upset because I signed a purchase order in June rather than July. Supplier account manager offered a straight £60k discount if we paid early as today was the end of their financial year.

He just didn't understand my point that for the sake of two weeks early I significantly improved the position of the company while securing the same discount for the next two years of purchasing.

This is the same guy who demanded I submit a full change request (20+ page report) when my cash-flow forecast showed that my £5m budget had changed by £1000 due to currency fluctuations.

I think I'll buy him a can of beans and a toothpick, he can amuse himself for hours counting them.

My current musing; on a car, what happens if you indicate with hazard lights on?

Last week I did what I think is the biggest journey between professional European rugby league towns. Wednesday afternoon I had a meeting in Workington (hadn't been back for years) and by Saturday I was in Perpignan for the Dragons v Hull game. Just outside Penrith I saw the Stobart lorry with Greg Mounis on the side.

No it isn't.
