I'm here as well.
Taking a break from writing Bill of Materials and listening to Pink Floyd to drown out the office chatter. Just had a pack of those toasted wheat crackers with supposed cheddar cheese sandwiched between them, and now my mouth feels like I ate the bait from a mouse trap.

I need more coffee, but the stuff they have here is so vile that even loading it with cream doesn't help- it's a distillation of evil.

Just here for a bit while trying to flog stuff on Ebay.

Am all of the miseries - I believe I either had my iPod stolen or lost while in Scotland the other week. Why has it taken me this long to confirm it? I had a sneaking suspicion but wouldn't check all my bags (still haven't tbh) as I don't want it to be gone. It was a Christmas present. :(
