» Secret Santa

Not me but my girlfriend...
She was really looking forward to this year's secret santa at her office. She went out and found a tabletop bowling set for a fiver. (I really wanted it but she said it was under pain of death, so I let it be.)

Friday comes, everyone gets their secret santa present, and what does she get?

Oh no, not something fun, or even something worrying from the fellas at work.

She gets a Ream of A4 paper. 500 crisp white sheets of finest laser-quality cellulose. Which she had to carry home on the train from Liverpool St.

"I did need some paper though" was the only thing I could think of to say....

» Airport Stories

While Working ...
at Heathrow, airside, removing the reduntant watchman radar, we saw concord(e) take off twice a day for a week, while we were 100 feet up a tower, and no more than 250 feet from the runway itself.

Absolutely phenomenal. It's the most satisfying noise I've ever heard in my life.

Also, while working in Holland, I've been through Schipol airport security a few times with my skater style jeans nearly round my knees after they asked me to remove my belt. Mmmm, Dignified.

» Childhood Ambitions

When I was young, I dreamt of being...
An Engineer. Yes, I know. Probably caused by the fact I wasn't allowed any 'non-educational' toys, so Lego and Technic were my staple diet for playtimes.

When I left school at 16, I Joined an offshoot of BAE as an apprentice, got my qualifications, and was sent all over europe to play with fix and maintain Radars.

Great fun. I got myself some good qualifications and the standard Field Engineer's drinking problem (if you're overseas and haven't got anything else to do, drinking 15 pints of lager a night, every night is the norm).

I left that to go and play at sparking (electrician-ing) on the underground, had fun for a year whilst doing up a house, made some money, then decided I wanted to muck about with the web.

Then I got my current job as a Global web sites analyst (basically a helpdesk for web editors, not as fun as it sounds).

I don't think I'll be an engineer again, at least not overseas. There's no place like Blighty.
