    Oh worse happened in the evening but I'd rather bleach my mind of it.

    I ended up apologising over and over for how some of my colleagues acted after drinking. Spent more time with the workers than my colleagues. Didn't blame them for calling us arrogant !!!!s. The same girl who refused to remove her heels threw a fit when they didn't get diet coke. Urgh

    BTW I would not recommend paintball when hungover. I just climbed up a tree house and napped. I woke up enough to shoot my hated colleagues in the private parts.

    Company was lucky they didn't arrange proper shooting. It'd have been Battle Royale

    Didn't you know? They are alien life forms that mind-meld with their human hosts who then have no control over what pics they take with them.

    Phone apps. Today I opened an app and got told it is not longer supported and that I should install the latest version from play store. I do that and it did not overwrite the old version and the old version turns out to be one of those apps that you aren't allowed to remove. I wasn't going to have both versions so I deleted the new version and will just have to tolerate the old version taking up room.
    Another issue with some apps is if you don't give them the permissions they want like access to contacts they stop working by claiming you are not connected to the net when you are. Give them the permissions they want and they suddenly stop claiming you have no internet connection.

    people who tell people to share something on facebook. if its about them it often says if you share i know you are a true friend. this implies you arent a true friend if you dont. or if its about puppies dying they say if you dont share you dont care. why not just post what you want to post and let people decide for themselves whether they want to share it or not. telling me to share guarantees that i wont.

    Some had those horrible selfie sticks as well - they deserve a belt around the bonce with the stupid things, 'cos some of them have no control over them.

    It's annoying now as with film cameras, they had to wait until they got home and have photos developed. Now they probably delete the photos of anyone pulling faces in the background.

    I must be in millions of Japanese photos as a kid

    I am fed up with work on the house and waiting for one thing to be done before the next can proceed.

    The dust seems to be all over the house. OH keeps adding to things, too.

    This is a quote from a story about a man who caught a fish:

    The investment banker from Basildon, Essex, told the Sun he has been inundated with abuse, particularly on social media.

    "It started within 24 hours and I think it is going to get worse," he said.

    "Part of me regrets catching it.”

    Such is the vitriol among the angling community that even one of Tom's sponsors, PB fishing products has received calls.

    Boss Paul Meehan confirmed: "There have been death threats and threats to Tom’s girlfriend and child. It is unreal."
    HE CAUGHT A FISH.

    A few days ago, I answered someone's question on the Benefits board. I spent half an hour looking up the relevant legislation for them and explaining why it may not apply to them. They haven't responded, they haven't clicked Thanks. I thought maybe they hadn't been online since, so I looked at their profile. They have, so they're just being a selfish !!!!, probably because it wasn't the answer they wanted.

    Up early for the plasterers to sand the ceiling down - bits not dry, do try tomorrow. Stayed in waiting for the fancy new vertical radiator to be delivered - they've lost the order!

    Why do we bother decorating and updating! I'd like to go away and come back when it's finished.

    And OH will never phone tradesmen - he says 'I'll see him down the club.' I'm trying to point out that these lads want to enjoy their rugby and don't take their works diaries, anyway!
