So, anyway, I used to be able to save £6 every day by going on the train. Now it's £1. Either that or I start out a little earlier and park in a nearby residential street - which is, I am sure, the effect the council was looking for.
There is a station which is slightly closer to my house and slightly further down the same route which would, in theory, allow me to get the same train 8 minutes later and only pay £2 for parking. However, at this station there are only 4 parking spaces and they are normally taken. Oh, and the traffic is shit that way so it would take me longer to get there.
Mrs. H. pointed me at an article in her TES the other day which said that there are actually plans to put "Intelligent" design on the biology curriculum in the UK. WTF?
Anyhow, a while ago, I was speculating on the entertainment possibilities of going into PC World and asking for landscape A4. If questioned, pull a bit out of your pocket and ask them to examine the grain. Anyhow, so far, so unfunny. One of the new analyst fellows at work (who I didn't reckon to be very sharp) has perfected a way, with his documents, so that the sections which are landscape demand the paper to be fed in manually (separate sections, same document). The joke's on me - there is such a thing a special landscape paper.
So, yesterday watched the Passion for Churches programme which featured my dad in a non-speaking part and my mum in a "lots of speaking" part. Also in a playing the organ, showing people around and generally giving the impression that she runs the whole church singlehandedly part. Hmm. Also she printed a Word document flawlessly - I wonder how many takes they needed.
Many people at work fail the Tebbit Test.
Think I might get on with it and join the National Secular Society. Religion is pissing me off at the moment.
