Almost speaking my mind

Following Microsoft’s announcement to cut 5,000 jobs a certain someone has flown into (yet another) panic.  Actually, it was just another thing which has made him get on the phone rather than engaging his own brain.

I finally said this to Dana the other day.  I got a lift back home with a friend early last week and as I was coming back into the house I saw Dana standing looking concerned on the phone.  I commented to my friend that she was probably on the phone to Tim.  She was, and I couldn’t help but overhear a bit of the conversation.

Long entry, but I want to catch up

Post length: 2,114 words, about 9 and a half minutes.

Well I have so much to write about!  I’m starting this now (just gone 1am, Monday morning), but I bet I don’t end up finishing tonight, lol.  So here goes…

Well, its the holidays from college now (yey) actually has been for the last week, but I don’t seem to have had much rest – my computing project was supposed to have been in for the Friday that we broke up, but it wasn’t despite my staying up all night on Thursday to attempt to get it done.  I took what I had done of it (something like 27 pages) to David my tutor on Friday and told him that he could have that now, and I would give him more as I got it done (ie, over the weekend), or I could give him it all in one go later.  He said he would be in college on Thursday so I could get it to him then.  That was great, and so that’s what I did.  It still wasn’t finished though, but this time it wasn’t my fault – the people I made the system for didn’t get back to me with feedback quickly enough to be able to put in an appraisal – and I didn’t want to spend loads of money on a print out of my program listing for the appendix when I can do it free at college!  So I took the rest of it in on Thursday.  When I got there I found that the staff room was totally deserted, and on his desk was Paul’s project as well.  I don’t really know if that’s a good sign – had I missed the time he was in, so he will get it really late, or had he just not been in that day meaning that it wasn’t my fault?  Either way, I left it on the desk and went.  In the car park I helped to get a car going, and then went on clothes shopping.
