Hey kids! Just checking in, the new house doesn't have a landline yet (bloody BT) so I'm dialling up on a 14.4k mobile modem. I kid ye not. It's taken 9 minutes just to load PF, so I'm not gonna waste time. Oh well, maybe just a little bit.... The new house is cool: Good things: Brand new house, everything's clean, all stuff moved in, digital TV, my own bathroom. Bad things: No landline = no interweb. Electric oven chargrills everything you put in it. Not worked out how to use hot water boiler yet. Got new oven gloves today. The new job is cool: Not done all that much yet, except for inductiony stuff. Did some crazy vibration things with some pipes, and tried to work out why some cams had failed. Learnt how to use a big scary vibrationy tester machine. The work hours are amazing; I can watch 2 whole episodes of ChuckleVision in the mornings before I set off, and get back home after work in time for Neighbours (which is incidentally an anagram of Erinsbrough). It's my perfect job; I get to wear a shirt and trousers all day, yet occasionally need safety goggles, ear defenders and a visi vest! Yay! Getting sent to the Dirty South next week to meet up with all the other graduates, and live in a house full of hot finance chicks, wahoo! Maybe. Discovered 2 new words to add to my list of "naughty words which engineers can get away with saying" today, if Evo would care to find and edit my thread since I don't have the patience: Slobber Bonk test Hurrah! Catch you all in either a few weeks when I have some interweb, or whenever I can steal some off someone. Be good! xx Ooooooh and also, in case nobody's posted about it yet, The Great North England PF Meet was amazing! It might have had something to do with us being hammered and watching The Pixies together, but I reckon it was just cos we (me, matthyoueoiuw and sticky icky) all rock ass. Hooray!
