    According to the child a few train seats away from me, the train on the bus goes choo-choo-choo, all day long.

  • Shame

    2015-08-18T17:25:25Z via Puma To: Public

    Always a shame to part allegiance with a local pub, especially one that used to be a great place to be (but a too-expensive place to run, evidently). My blind support can only go so far.

    Hopefully a continuing decline in takings will get the PubCo to realise that customers want interesting rather than inoffensive, and it costs a bit of money to make money. Eight cask handpulls but only two generic ales on ain't gonna get you very far in Liverpool centre.

    Back to the Moor Swen, then!

    Qu'est-ce un bon moment choisi mon équipe français, l'OM! Je suis bleu et blanc parce qu'ils furent les champions de Division 1 sur mon anniversaire, la même raison j'aime l'Arsenal.

    Après une victoire de pré-saison impressionnant contre Juventus (2-0, avec des buts fantastiques!), les premiers deux matches de cette saison a vu zéro but, mais deux en adverse, zéro point, et l'entraîneur a quitté!

    Alors, pourquoi ai-je acheter une chemise sur eBay?!

    So document early, test early, release early, document often, test often, release often.

  • Shaun the Sheep trail in Bristol, UK

    2015-08-12T06:51:25Z via Puma To: Public

    Visited my home city this weekend, totally not for the Shaun the Sheep (Aardman) trail but it was cool to see even four of them. Of course they're decorated differently depending on where they are, lots of cultural/local references; Aardman are a pride of Bristol giving so many funny and technically brilliant cartoons. Shauns are dotted about absolutely everywhere so would've taken a long day we didn't have!

    Came home to an estimated final gas bill for November last year. Every home service company ever is just shit.

    Claes Wallin (韋嘉誠) shared this.

    Ow. But that's _old_, check the Ofgem site to see if they can still bill you for it. I was surprised to learn that they have to charge within a certain amount of time.

    No link to hand though...

    Really? Interesting… I'll see if I can find out how long it is!

    It was for a silly amount like £8 after we switched supplier, so we phoned up to tell them to close our account and clear up their mess. Cheque for what's left is in the post to us right now ☺

    @seawolf@identi.ca "estimated" and "final" sounds like a contradiction.

    Lost two hours of my life trying to even vaguely comprehend what the numbers mean on my yearly pension statement.

    The only bits I'm sure of are my monthly payments, into The Abyss… ah, maybe I do understand it after all…!

    The words 'piss-up' and 'brewery' spring to mind... (and not "Who's for a" and "where’s the nearest")
