» Redundant technology

WoW, AoC, Aion, MIR3 me and my mates have played them all and more. But every Sunday night and for the last 23 years, good old fashioned pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons. No amazing 3D graphics, just a few dice and a good imagination.

» Easiest Job Ever

Chief Fuel Analyst
It was a two week assignment to cover the very important role of Chief Fuel Analyst in a power station.

A grandious job title and at the age of 18 and seemingly hired purely on the basis of my recently acquired A Level in Chemistry, how could I say no, it would just look so awesome on my CV.

However, this was no ordinary powerstation - the fuel to be analysed was poultry litter, or to use the technical phrase, chicken and turkey shit. Fifteen or so 25t loads of it a day, had to dig down, get a sample, do IR moisture test, to physical loss method mouture test, ash content. My Lab, which was in the same shed as the 1000t of fuel upfront of the incinerator, had a certain odour that made you both high and nausious at the same time.

But the work was easy, and the other lads let me play (PLAY!) with the forklift truck, even allowing me to join their FLT Racing League, as well as dick around with the cherry picker!

» Bizarre habits

I have a weird habit in the morning...
... get up, kettle on, select mug from this order

Large pink "Piglet" mug if clean. If not clean but in sight, then use.
If not, then select Blue and white striped mug.
If none of those clean, use GenCon 2000 mug (so on and so on)

Put tea and sugar in mug, unlock back door, have a smoke, by which time kettle has boiled. Lock back door, finish preparation of tea.

Take said tea to back door take a mini "oooch ouch hot hot" sip, unlock back door have another smoke. Lock back door and have a proper mouthful of tea. Shit, shave, shower, back downstairs finish tea and leave for work.

Monday to Friday this is my routine between 06:45 and 07:22 without fail and has been for 5 years. The missus says we are all a little bit autistic.

Length? Exactly 37 minutes.
