Efficient for no reason

Today was a busy day. It wasn’t manic, but I was on the go (still am) and got a lot of stuff done. The things that didn’t get completed were properly rescheduled and a plan put in place, and I also managed to move some things off my plate. Which is good. Thing is, I can’t for the life of me figure out why I’ve had such an efficient day. Just happened that way, and could quite easily have gone the other way and been another day of adding to my task list, rather than DOING stuff. No complaints. Just, well I’d like to know why/how so I can repeat it again tomorrow!

Instructions and ethics

Two things are currently making me GRRRRRRRR quite a bit. One is a minor annoyance that crops up frequently, the other a fairly fundamental gripe with a certain profession. In reverse order then, my main gripe is with the current batch of moaning politicians who are saying that it isn’t fair that they are having to pay back monies claimed because the rules have been changed and … well it’s just not fair.

Although there is a small chance my session will be recorded so you may yet be able to get the full experience, I’ll confirm that later though (and depends on whether it can be edited as well!). Wish me luck!

Roll up, roll up

Get your sensationalistic TV viewing here!! First we heard that an abortion will be seen on TV for the first time, now we hear that Christopher Alder’s death will be shown tonight. Christopher Alder, 37, died at Queens Gardens Police Station, Hull, in April 1998.An inquest concluded Mr Alder, who had been arrested for breach of the peace, was unlawfully killed.In the criminal trial that followed, all five officers were cleared of manslaughter and misconduct in a public office. I don’t watch much TV to be honest, and no doubt I’ll miss this programme tonight but I fear that these kinds of programmes are leading us further down a path of… well I’m not sure ‘of’ what. Sex sells, and …
