Hooray, finally got onboard early enough to get a bigger cabin, and above the waterline.


(I see the phantom had the last laugh, let's hope it went down with the ship)




FSL-What happened to Adam? Did he finally catch that milk bottle?

I go out for the day and when I come back all is changed.
No idea where my cabin is, can't find the bar and my sock drawer is nowhere to be seen.

I suppose I'll find my way around with the help of the insomnia fairies during the night

Hmmm, a interesting QI snippet,there was no word for the colour orange in the olden days,not until the actual orange arrived on these shores,ergo the orange is not thusly named because of its colour the colour was named after the fruit,anything before it appeared that was orange was just called red.

Evenin all.

See my old cumfy leather chair has made it over, so I'll settle in for the night, after a slight over indulgence of curry. Nice multi coloured pump and gadget button console to play with as well.

Seems,as a result of the size of the curry dose, I must issue a wind warning for the second evening on the trot.

Very interesting to the fact of how did they describe the 7 colours of the rainbow in days of yore, or was it 6 then???

Fingers crossed hard tonight. Been after info from R&D for ages to finish off the new manual, yes the one I spent 5 weeks on last year. Big boss even complains he is not privy to meetings across there. No info still he tells me to email them demanding answers as they are the ones pushing for the final version. Email tonight totally lambasting my manual saying x is wrong y is wrong z is wrong. My boss and big boss not copied, forwarded on telling them everything is BS. Told them if I reply will lose the plot totally.
So fingers very hard crossed for tonight so my reply will be **** you lot!

Other than that raining as usual.

No escape, I tell you.
Can't you do one of them there exercisy things?? You have the qualifications.

Don't think they had seven colours before Newton,if I recall correctly blue wasn't regarded as a separate colour in really ancient times, twere just a shade of red,tiz solution to the mystery as to why they called Sirius, "Red Sirius in ancient texts and as we all know Sirius looks blue not Red.
However stars can change colour,they can turn from blue to red when they reach old age,what they cannot possibly do is change from red to blue.
