It was so pointless I removed it and Diane's response.

God, you must be bored.

Odd when there's so much good music around . . .

I see your John Berryman and raise you a William Shakespeare:

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Boredom must be great for Zen/Bhuddist exponents. It means you can get on with BEING bored.

Thanks Dayna. The job (which is Information Co-ordinator for Staffordshire Fire & Rescue) is going well after four days. Though what happened to my leisurely lunch, followed by my leisurely afternoon, followed by my relaxed tea time? Work eh, what a "toad". (anyone?)

What do I do? Ahh there's a question. Well I have to wear a uniform, well a shirt with a badge on it, so don't get too excited ladies, I mean fireman and mathematician!!! I think my job will be to produce statistics, but when these are directed to saving lives, well it has some meaning.

Here's the thing. When I started having trouble at school 18 months - 2 years ago (crumbs) I had one lad who was particularly obnoxious, followed after I shouted at him by vehement complaints from parents. Anyway, first day there I am being introduced to personnel in the office and one senior guy says: "You know me I think!". I though uhmm you look familiar, looked at his name badge, and yes, it's the father of the noxious boy! Uhmm, should I have a heart attack now or just leave!

Anyway we had a private chat later and we'll be okay! What a life eh.

Shakespeare - ha. Big ruff-wearing ponce.

Philip Larkin.

Work is a really strange thing - I'm stressed AND bored at the same time hence my puerile contribuions to SOTW during weekdays. Apparently boredom can be just as stressful as stress.

Well done Gordon on the job. (Gordon on the job? You know what I mean.)
