I had a MFK appointment at 0750 the other week. Why does anyone choose to be at work at such a ridiculous time?

The sun rises, these days, at around 5:45. Why are you still in bed at 7? You are wasting the day.

IMHO we should be on double daylight savings time.

I'm at work by 07:30 every weekday except Wednesday ... then I get to be slack and come in at 08:30.

Migro's packing-designers have lost their plot.

They redesigned most of the packaging and it is not.to.the.advantage.of.the.customers.

Happy Children's Day! This is not a FWP, this is an excuse to have a nice cake. And balloons.

Dunno. But having to shave can qualify for a FWP, maybe.

Wax makes me think of skis I really want to cruise down a nice empty slope.

I'm trying to figure out whether I should water my plants or if there will be an other really wet thunderstorm right after I dragged all the water out there.

Just had storm through our place, although it was fairly gentle ... a bit of a soaking rain settling in now.

Yeah, I sat it out and it worked: 21.20h the daily thunder and about ten minutes later "they" kindly watered my plants.
