Sitting in my dream office?

Well, its back to the office tomorrow, though sadly, it wont be anything like this place!

Just to say, if you’re limited for reading time, Chapter 6 would appeal a lot to be done to me! I know, only person who would enjoy that, but besides all that…

In truth, I suspect that a few decades into the future, I suspect this method may well be used in some offices, especially for the more mind numbing duties, and yes, call centre work would definitely qualify for that! Oh please, computer controlled drone for work, then go home at night with free will, mmm? Oh, and those suits they get to wear sound quite something too! Oh fine, that free will thing at night, maybe we could come to an arrangement on that?

Sadly, no, for those of us with just about a maximum of 5 and a half years to go to retirement, its not going to happen in that period of time, I only wish it would!

Oh, and in the previously mentioned chapter 6, lets just say the lucky lady gets an upgrade on just being a  mindless drone for work, and fine, I’d be the only person jealous of her for that!

Yes, lets face it, I couldnt get my CV in quickly enough for a job, if that was for real! Let me just add, I’m yet to read this weeks update, so please, no one post on here how it ends, OK? But equally, if anyone wants to offer me a job, just like that, please post quickly! 😉

Right, video time. No, you’re not likely to find an office on a backyard fence, but we need some 30’s musicals love around here. Dick Powell, and Ruby Keeler might be the stars, but yes, one of those in the cat costumes, yes, its Clara! You do get a better view of her very briefly late in the video, just saying…

You know you’re getting old, when…

Up until now, when booking holidays and stuff, I’ve always tried to save every penny, by taking the lowest price possible. Well, except for when I’ve traveled by Premium Economy, for the extra room and stuff, but in the sense of the option which is non cancellable, but is just that bit cheaper than the more flexible deal, mainly with hotel bookings, I’ve always plunged for the non cancellable deal. In truth, of course, until last year, I was generally ‘young and healthy’ enough (thats a video hint, btw) not to need to worry about it. Well, healthy enough, anyway! 😛

I cant remember the difference for the Seattle hotel next month, but I know it was enough for me to be taking my chances with the cheaper rate! I just left the booking to a bit later, to see how the back was, and then just went for it!

However, when I looked at the trip to Scotland in September for a few days, I noticed that the difference between the cheap, non cancel rate was only about £20 less than the more flexible one, allowing the opportunity to cancel up to the day before, should I, or the person going with me, not feel up to the challenge. Fine, there will be a point where I need to sort out the rail tickets, so last minute will not be practical, but that much, to give the 2 of us (other is older than me) the opportunity not to panic if we dont feel up to it at the time, well…

So yes, for the first time in forever, I’ll be paying that little bit extra, just to be sure. Ah, the delights of getting old, lol! Sadly, unlike rail fares, hotels dont do senior discount cards lol!

Right, video time. One of those occasions when you dont believe the claim on You Tube. No, this isnt rare, colored film from 1932 as it claims. This is actually a Turner Movies colorization jobs from the 1980’s. Considering that, its not great, and I have no idea why audio is missing, unless Turner Movies really messed that up? So no, its not real color film of Clara Johnson (at 2:17 or so), but probably the best I can get!
