I'm back!

Germany: nice country, shit food, people are ok.

The airshow was pretty good though – it’s good to get among the competition and find out what they’re up to πŸ˜‰ Spent a lot of time on the Mallaghan stand (aircraft loaders, toilet carts luggage handlers – not really our side of things) ‘cos they had Guinness on tap πŸ™‚ which was very nice…

Weather was great out there – 26 degrees yesterday πŸ™‚ so glad I managed to grab a free pair of shades from Dianne at the Semmco stand (gave her a stuffed cow in return).

What other freebies did I get? not many actually – some chocolate, Jagermeister, stuffed donkey…that’s about it…

And Corina arranged for me to goto Italy next week for testing in Rome – she’s arranged a flight out Monday morning and back in the evening so I’ve got to be at Stansted for 4am, and land back just before midnight – I’m sure she doesn’t realise this yet – but that’s a fucking long day!

Better get on with some work – just going through the emails is gonna take all morning…


Just got in – yet another hectic day in the life of snee…

I’m off to the Munich Airshow next week πŸ™‚ 2 days of checking out the competition (for work!) and trying to sell our company’s services – should be fun, even if I do have to shave and dress in a shirt and trousers (and shoes! proper shoes!).

And believe me, when I say I love my job – it’s not just the travelling – I seriously love my job πŸ™‚

I’ve got a Led Zep Too gig to see Saturday night – think I’ve mentioned it before – apparently they’re really good…tickets cost me nothing, so it’ll just cost the petrol for whoever’s driving (certainly not gonna be me – I’m having a few beers) – result! πŸ™‚

So, the plan is: win the Lotto tonight (ha!), judging by the emails in today it shouldn’t be too taxing a day tomorrow, finish at 1 Friday…and the weekend starts there πŸ™‚ )

My waking thought this morning was: green eggs and ham – I’ve been thinking about this at moments during the day, it’s quite disturbing really…

Well, that’s about it – gonna go cook and soak in the bath (at different times). Ciao

Another Friday

I don’t seem to be blogging much during the week do I?

Guess my life is becomming less-blogworthy…that or it’s too personal to put into the public domain πŸ˜‰

Spent the day in Munich on Wednesday at the air show. Turned out to be a l o n g day – got a taxi back to mine from Harriett’s at 4am, picked up at 5.30am to get to the airport, spent the day generally networking, eating and drinking, then back to the airport. Our return flight was supposed to be at 9.40pm but due to fog it was delayed – wait for it – 3 HOURS. The most annoying thing about this was I got a text message from Harriett saying she’d left the key under the mat and I should go round when I landed.

Had a few more drinks while we waited and finally got to board. As soon as the doors had closed the captain came on to say we’d missed our take-off slot and had a 50 minute wait. Well, contrary to regulations, my phone was switched back off flight mode and a text sent to let Harriett know I’d not be landing until about 2.30am and I’d not be over.

Finally landed at Stansted and I’ve not seen fog in the UK like that for years. And then began the saga of getting home. We’d parked in the short stay car park and got the ticket validated – got in the car and the ticket promptly slipped down the side of the seat. After about 10 minutes looking, sliding the seat back and forward, we finally found the ticket sitting on the seat mechanism so we were able to get out of the car park. Getting on the M11, it was slow going due to the fog – then we had a diversion – the M11 was closed and we had to go some way along narrow roads…in the fog. The day FINALLY ended for me at about 3am – I was so glad to fall into bed.

Didn’t get into work until just after 9am yesterday (sleep deprivation) and felt so tired all day.

Was nice to see Harriett last night – she did tell me that I should have turned up at hers anyway, regardless of the time.

Sigh…at least the weekend is now under 4 hours away…:)

Weee…Friday again


Spurs got a 1-1 draw in Cyprus last night to win 7-2 on aggregate and go through to the group stages of the UEFA Cup (draw takes place on Tuesday). Now all we need to do is pickup our League form – Liverpool away tomorrow, that wold be a great place to start winning and get us out of the bottom three…

Munich Air Show next week – boss asked me to ‘tweak’ his business cards for him to include the alliance with Singapore Technologies and also to get some for myself. This led me to ponder for 10 minutes or so – what job title should I give myself? of course the first thought was ‘refreshment co-ordinator’ (teaboy), that always makes me giggle like a girl. Then I briefly played with something in sales – but whether to be a manager or a director? nah, it’s got to be something in IT. This led to more pondering. Finally I settled on ‘Systems Administrator’ sounds pretty impressive but vague…a bit like what I do πŸ™‚

Anyway, it’s Friday, I finish in 4 hours – get a nice fat wedge in my pocket and start my weekend – did I ever mention how much I love Fridays?
