Working life

A diary about Netflix, bikes, lots of other stuff, and (amazingly) work

Update [2013-8-7 15:18:8 by anonimouse]: Arse - job finishes at the end of the month :'(


There's an aroma of weed coming from the flats next door and a couple are having a Jeremy Kyle type argument where each is accusing the other of sleeping with someone else...

all this on the day when representatives from a major international client happen to be visiting.

For the (local) offices of a subdivision of one of the worlds largest advertising agencies, they are remarkably nondescript. Although it has 3 floors, the offices are small and cramped, the furniture is down at heel, and I've brought my own 28" monitor in as its superior to the 1280x1024 work based ones. This week will also see my purchase of a comfy executive chair, as the current one squeaks and sounds as though it will break up any minute.

I have discovered the joys of accessing Netflix through a proxy so I can watch US shows. This means the number of DVDs I need to carry round is much lower.

Work:
seems to be going quite well (me and my big mouth), or at least it was until I got notified they'd found enough permies for next month and will let my contract expire. After 3 years absence, I seem to have successfully retaught myself Dojo Javascript, and StackOverflow seemjs to have helped me get through the bits I couldn't handle.

Shopping: Anonimouse has a planned shopping list:
2560x1440 monitor (I pissed Mrs Mouse off when I took this monitor out of our house and she wants it back because its really a Full HD Freeview and Freesat TV all in one)
Nexus 7 x 4 (2 with LTE, 2 without, for the Mice family). Please Google release them in the UK soon.

Bikes: I has bought Miss Minimouse her birthday present - a 21 (?) speed bike. When I was 12 I think I had 3 or 5 gears on mine

We've got the "Cambridge Early Music Conference" in this week and there's someone singing stuff on the South Court lawn.

Being drowned out by the noise of buses every couple of minutes mind...
