    tyvm.

    Have you not smoked AT ALL for the last fortnight? Is it not making you want to just push forward and try to quit altogether?

    Don't do it PhoePhoe! If you've done a fortnight off the fags you should stay off them, you've done the hardest part now! Think of all the money you'll save.

    Oh I don't smoke cigarettes (they smell bad), I do hookah. Usually one everyday/every other day.

    I tell you what's doing my HEAD IN. All this "Storm Imogen" business and naming of a BIT OF FUCKING WIND. It's sending the country into a fricking FRENZY for NO APPARENT REASON. It's just FEBRUARY! It's not ARMAGEDDON!

    I think the naming of storms has just made people get RATHER SILLY about a bit of wind and rain. Hurricanes and typhoons, fair enough, but storms? It's just weather.

    I blame Sandy for all this nonsense. That was the first time I can remember them naming a storm.

    Ms Shirley have you missed the beard trend that we've had for years now? Everyone's getting their beards groomed there.

    I had to do the dreaded phoning in sick this morning. Even when I am genuinely sick I still feel really guilty and a little paranoid my boss thinks I'm lying!

    I've just dropped caponata all over the floor

    If this office wasn't as quiet as the GRAVE I wouldn't have to try and eat so SURREPTITIOUSLY

    You FUSSY OLD TROUTS who used to MOAN ON about the FAN NOISE from the old computers...personally I used to LOVE a bit of BACKGROUND NOISE.

    I mentioned this to my boss in my JOB DISCUSSION but he just LAUGHED :(

    I always do it when I've just woken up and I'm still in bed so I sound really croaky.

    TOP TIP

    I've also found doing it lying face up with your head hanging over the bed helps.

    I've just caused a bit of a to do and a hoohah by insisting I could smell gas in the office, when it was in fact just someone reheating last night's mung bean fricassee.

    I'm ill as well so I just set my IM status to "busy" and went back to bed. Unfortunately I suppose I had better do some work now :gross:

    At least you can do it from home (I'm assuming, unless your office is PROPER lavish). Everyone is ill recently, Spring can't come soon enough.

    How do sick days and holidays work when you're a contractor? I assume you just don't get paid.

    Correct. I suppose you could claim statutory sick pay if you could be arsed for the 2p per day or whatever it is, but you have to be off for more than three days.

    I didn't receive a reply to a text message for two days from someone so I stalked said person's social media presence and used their (PLENTIFUL, over the last few days) Wikipedia editing history to determine the fact that "being busy up in Newcastle" is a vile untruth. I feel quite ashamed at my level of stalkery persistence.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Username. It feels like a creepier but classier equivalent to scouring people's Twitter likes.

    God I thought I was bad glancing at a guys name badge at work and seeing something along the lines of J-O, finding 10 e-mail distribution lists knowing he'd be in one of them, exporting said list to excel to separate each name by cell, searching the sheet for any likeness to those letters and cross referencing the names on Facebook. Found him in 15 minutes. Totally worth it.

    That's an impressive level of commitment, I don't think I would have managed in my case if I hadn't laid the groundwork early on and hovered behind them while they were editing a random footballer's page, before carefully noting down their username.

    This time around, they might allegedly/actually have been in Newcastle for the funeral of a close relative, but I have to follow my instincts when I have a hunch. I think checking local papers in the North East for their family announcements pages might be slightly too far.

    Gosh stalking sounds much more fun than it was in my day when it mostly used to involve keeping your hairnet jammed up against the vestry door and general LURKING ABOUT trying to engineer COINCIDENCES

    The former. I think a combination of boredom and frustration has turned me into some sort of sexual Columbo (or just Columbo, he had a dishevelled charm).

    I wouldn't be above the coincidental walk-past, if I wasn't 200 miles away. The internet has made things like this a lot easier, although I'm still waiting on that Columbo porn parody.
