    Thought this was about you and SimonMac for a second. Misread the title as The Golden Girls.

    Just done the same thing! LOL!

    A slight mis-timing means my clearance for the new gig has only just come through - so I'm at home this week. Agent just asked can I start 'now'?

    I really can't be arsed with half a week so told them no. Monday is good though.

    Their reply - oh, all the new starters have told me the same thing.

    From experience their response is 'can you give us his / her number and we can get them in direct'.

    Alas I hear that he has caught they eye of someone else who is trying to steal him from me, it was fun while it lasted
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    My subconscious is annoying. It's got a mind of its own.
