The Gadgeteer – Drool.
Six numbers is all it would take, six little random picked numbers from a limited range of 49. How hard can it be?! (Yes I know statistically there is more chance of me pulling Helena Christiansen, Katherine Heigl, and Jenny McCarthy for a night of baby oil wrestling, followed by a long luxurious session of… ohhh sorry.. what was I talking about?)
It startles me sometimes, how easy it is NOT to notice things. Whilst I make no claim to be the best manager (or team leader, whatever) around I like to think I can gauge the moods of my team. I try to be open with them, sometimes when I shouldn’t. I have a basic realisation that there is more to ‘management’ than facts, figures, resources and workloads. There are people involved. Now I’m not the sharpest tack in the box but it seems to be kinda obvious, yes? Then why can’t ‘senior management’ see it too? I’m debating about sending this link round (see point 2) – Communicating Corporate Change.
Visited a friend last night, she’s out from hospital after surgery and still pretty sore, kinda miss her being around, so I think I’ll be visiting quite often. Get Well Soon.
Thursday, one day to go before the weekend. Joy.
Nothing to do with my sister of the same name, but both share a similar, vaguely dotty personality.
Bush warns on terror – I remember various pundits commenting on the ‘gung-ho’ style of President Bush, and that how it sometimes seemed he was always itching for a fight. Has he just proven them right?
waferbaby ~ fusion. Join the fusion. I mean if an artistically challenged, clam handed goof like me can have a go, why can’t you?
Walked to the station this morning, about 25 minute walk in the pouring, no deluging rain (you know what I mean, right?). It’s amazing what you think about and it really helps clear my brain, woke up in a foul mood. By the time I got to the station I was calm. I’d ponder about work and what I need to do, about some stuff I really need to do at home, possible holidays for us this year.
Yes, a long walk in the rain really makes you realise things, most specifically that I need waterproof shoes, and a new jacket! Thank goodness I was in early, not a pretty sight to see first thing in the morning, a semi-naked Gordon trying to dry his clothes under the hand dryer…
To Blogger Pro, or not to Blogger Pro. As my site has been kinda dead for the past months or so, I think I’ll wait and re-do my calculations before deciding. Plus the fact that at the moment my house is sucking up all my monies, so anything to do with this site as to be classed under “frivolous”.

Isn’t it amazing how you manage to miss things? I mean really good things that have been there all along. Go visit, there’s more to it than tests! (and if you ask really nicely I’ll let you know my results).
