Elevenses

Postby europa » Thu Apr 12, 2007 11:41 am

It's eleven o'clock here. Rather than working, I'm playing bike forums. Should I address this? Ahh, the tyranny of working at home :wink: For a soft boss (me). I'm also feeling a tad peckish, grumbly tumbly syndrome and all that. Should I fire up the kettle and toast myself a couple of hot cross buns to go with the coffee, despite the dire effects that will have on my (lack of) weight loss?

Decisions, decisions.

elevenses are a regular happening in our house, then again, so are twelveses, twoses, threeses, fourses, etc... oh, and the halfhour biccies/snacks/cuppas ...

though i suppose living in a share house of five male uni students, so might not be quite an accurate sample of the wider population. :D

PS. I can empathise about work. It's uni break, I'm meant to be cleaning my room. Have meant to for the past 3 days.

That's strange. It's now knocking on for 10 here and I have the same problem :lol:

I would only address this if your post count gets close to 1,000,000. Most people who work for other people, also go web surfing when they are supposed to be working :shock:

Come on people, admit it. Who surfs the net from work? :D

The difference between me and someone working for someone else is that they only lose money if they get caught - for me it's hard to submit something for rejection if I haven't written the damned thing in the first place.

Negative thinking. You should be saying "submit something that is accepted". :D

Then you can become rich, and pay for us all to attend the forum's get together and go riding and meet each other. :D

I use the net at work when it's quiet or in between moves, pity the Co's filters won't let me see a lot of images or open links.

Richard, have you considered collating and binding your posts into a single volume? There might just be a market.
