Mother in Law took the family out to celebrate #3 son's Higher estimates.
Last night so on the Eat Out bargain.

Location a Malay restaurant called Satu Satu near St George's cross.
Place was busy with chinese students and young families when we arrived - always a good sign.
I'm not altogether sure about the table distancing.

They had reorganised service through one person taking the order up to a front desk.
Waiters brought the order as usual, but were wearing substantial masks.

Helpings were generous, and we got to take some leftovers home.
I had a case of the KSG shivers this morning.
Shared the leftovers and some duck sausages for lunch.

Now I'm sitting here working from home thinking "Why the fuck do I continue doing this job".
I'll probably give it another month.

Woke up this morning at 6.30ish to a strange buzzing sound. I was in the spare room as I'd been 'working' (ie watching YouTube) until the small hours. Two wasps were trying to get out of the window. Opened it. Out they flew. Went to the loo, came back, saw another. Opened the window, it left. Two seconds later I found out that wasps can also crawl along the floor. "Flipping heck," I thought. "That stung a bit."

Another trip to the loo to clean up, another couple waiting to be let out on my return. Call made to the first, and probably most expensive, pest control firm I could Google at 7am and they're due later today. Things can only...

Woke up this mornin' to a strange ol' buzzin' sound
Said woke up this mornin' to a strange ol' buzzin' sound
Can't even take me a dump
Them stripey bastards buzzin' round

Gonna call me an exterminator in the hope of some release
Said call me an exterminator in the hope of some release
He's gonna kill them stripey bastards
So's I can crap in peace

We had a wasp nest up the chimney in the French house. Hundreds, nay thousands, of the little bastards. My record was seven stings in a day (note: if you are using your hoover to vacuum up dozy wasps and the attachment clogs do not, repeat do not put your fingers in it to clear the wasps out. They will be cross and eager for revenge.)

This is not related to the hornet - bollocks incident.

We've had a Man and a Lad out to sort the problem (the Man sent the Lad up the ladder - clearly he's not daft). It was at a price that might seem steep for the time they were here and the work they did, but I suppose it's the changing the fuse invoice breakdown* effect. They knew how to do it, they did it quickly and if they haven't done it properly they'll be back to make a better job of it. It's money I'd rather have spent on something else but at least it's fixed now.



*Someone's electrical thing went wrong and he called in a specialist electrician who changed a fuse in thirty seconds and charged him £100. When asked to break down what seemed an extortionate charge, the electrician wrote "For changing the fuse in 30 seconds - £1. For knowing how to change the fuse in 30 seconds - £99."

Well of course. Saving your fingers by attempting to clear wasps out of the hoover using your bollocks would have been taking foolhardiness to the extreme.

Remember the "it's a funny old world" in Private Eye ? One extract was from a health professional who had to deal with a patient who out a lightbulb up his rectum,which then....broke!

The A&E department have heard almost every bollocks / hoover excuse.
They won't be phased.

Still, loosely, on this drift, several years ago I used to see an FB* I met via work. She was attractive, had a slight look of Karen Danczuk, but didn't have a whole lot going on upstairs. I once told her that the lightbulb was invented by a German physicist called Otto von Lightbulb. She believed me!

When I put her right, the response was "aw, your mean you"

As I said frequently in my IT days, I don't get paid for what I do. I get paid for what you can't.
