    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Glorious weather outside though it brings out fashion disasters. Some women need to wear a top that covers their bra. Who in the right mind thinks wearing a bright blue strapless top with a white STRAPPED bra looks good? Bras belong to the clothing group underwear and they should be for UNDER what you are wearing.

    Paint colour cards.
    Paint colour names.
    Actual paint samples that you've paid for based on the colour card and the name.
    Do I need to say more?

    Yes, I do want to say more.
    Why is this one even categorised as a grey when the actual paint comes out of the tin looking like a hot dog sausage?

    The actual colour is another thing. It depends to quite a large extent on the "temperature" ie the colour of the light used to view it in. And that colour can be reflected from other colours remember.
    I imagine that paint companies go to a fair bit of trouble to get all the colour profiles right so that the colours match between the dry paint and the card.
    The only way to be somewhere near sure is to look at the colour of the sample on the actual surface you are painting, in the light it will be most sen in.

    Barbers somehow having an inability to cut my hair properly. My regular barber was ok but has retired and left the business to his daughter. She is rubbish. I have let her at my hair twice and not been happy with it. Anytime i have tried other barbers i havent been impressed with them either. So now i have said stuff it and got it all shaved off. I dont like that either but its the lesser of two evils.

    I was told off before as a few years ago I saw a girl wearing like a modern i.e barely covering body Daisy Dukes (what Daisy Duke wore would seem modest in comparison!)walking through city centre, without a bra on, certain body feature in full view, jeans cut into shorts so short in fact they are basically y fronts (if not smaller)


    Not to sound pervy but she was at least a DD cup, braless, wearing those short shorts and a top that basically was a bra walking through town centre on a warm summer day.


    People were staring more because of how she dressed rather than perving and through all this I heard her talk about how men are treating her like a piece of meat and couldn't keep their eyes off her, typical men.


    Anyway today I saw junkie up town, shirtless with his big beer gut downing cans of super Skol in town centre and shouting to his pals across the road drawing attention to him.

    Well it's all about the plastic all of a sudden. It's irritating that we've known it's a problem for decades, but it has had to become a fashionable issue before anyone does anything about it.

    I'm starting a new contract on Monday - the lady at the agency who helped me secure it sent the contract document to my umbrella accountant firm on Tuesday morning.

    They've sent it back asking me to sign 2 pages opting out of the Conduct Regulations 2003 (which I did on the last contract) and the Working Time Regulations 1998 (which I never do) but didn't send it back until 12:25 this afternoon.

    So if I wanted to take my own legal advice about the first opt out (as advised in the document) I can't do it today as there won't be any appointments available at local solicitors, nor can I do it from Monday since I'll be working at a different site.
    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    I think the Virgin engineers must be working in my area somewhere, my broadband has dropped 3 times in the last hour for about 5 minutes each time
