Today I went to work from 7am to 10am. I have really bad manflu, so was sent home.
I then ate a chicken and mayo wrap, which was nice. Tonight I will do some computering. I need a film to watch from the safety of my bed

The 19th Century box contains a crucifix, pistol, wooden stakes and mallet, as well as glass bottles containing holy water, holy earth and garlic paste.
The box was left to a Yorkshire woman in her uncle's will. Oonagh Drage of Tennants Auctioneers in Leyburn, North Yorkshire, said she had not seen anything like it before.
Ms Drage said the kit was probably made in the late 1800s and was possibly inspired by the popularity of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula.
"It's probably a novelty thing. It's playing to people's superstitions."
As well as the weaponry, the box holds a copy of the Book of Common Prayer from 1851 and a handwritten extract from the Bible which quotes Luke 19:27.
It reads: "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me."
The box goes on auction later this month.
its not showing all the fighter jets flying about Aalborg for sunday's airshow though.
mind you, there's something epically win in watching a delta formation of F16's roar by over the city at around 500 meters, going fairly slow. (300 kmph or there about)
Had my last day in my old job today. i no longer work for Cornwall Council. Yay! Although the day was capped off with a very uncomfortable experience. We're having various building work done around the office building and when I popped to the gents to take a piss a crowd of workmen came in behind me and stood in a group behind me surveying the room and having a discussion about work that was needed in there. I don't normally have a shy bladder but it was like taking a piss in the corner of an uncomfortably small conference room whilst there is a meeting in progress.
I'm sure they must have been doing it for a laugh because it can't seriously take that many contractors to come in and talk about painting the walls.
Day has otherwise been good, I stopped working about 2 hours before the end of the day because it's not like I care if they fire me the last 2 hours of my resignation period and just wandered around the building chatting to people. I've got last months wages and no outstanding bills and a few weeks free now. I'm going to chill out with a pint in the sun this evening and decide what i'm going to do with the free time and money I have at the moment.
If you ignore the rules people will, half the time, quietly rewrite them so they don't apply to you.

Granted, these guys come of as a pair of douche bags, but this reaction
