I am away from the internet from 16th - 23rd January, 2009. (Pending a potential internet cafe on holiday.)

In case of urgent requirement to know what I think about things, just make it up for yourselves. 

See you all in a week or so.

(Thank bob I caught up on flickr uploading before going away, anyway.)

I am so tempted to just spam the crap out of this entry all week.

But I won't because 25-year-olds are not supposed to do fun things like that. I read it so it must be true.

One Hobbling to exchange emails with. The ideal candidate:

Must have gmail address.

Must have an endless repository of cult tv related subject titles at hand, often ones that could be embarrassing if viewed by a work colleague.

Must have a willingness to nitpick terminology and not lie down when a word is ill-defined until we have worked out a multi-page document explicitly stating its use dependent on who writes it and when is essential.

Loves alliteration, the creation of new words and the revival of old ones.

Philosophises and expounds on human nature.

Shares information about toilet visits.


Emails must be exchanged approximately once an hour between the time of 9am and 9pm GMT with occasional barrages of quick banter.

Some emails can compose of very little more than *waves* but must grow in length disproportionately to how much there is to say of any worth.

Duration of position: After one week, there will be a review.

Re: Wanted
Unfortunately I would be doomed to fail in that position as my ideal emailing time equals about, oh, 20 minutes a day. Less if possible. And my desire to nitpick is practically non-existent, so there's that as well.

However, if you want my services for any sort of paintchat application then I'm in.

Re: Wanted
I'm baaaack! Now, how to switch these auto-response things off...

*has to google paintchat*

Indeed, your emailing strength has dropped off sadly since I returned to LJ... but that's okay. I felt forcing you to complete more than a few gmail threads would probably make you explode, anyway.

And that job description seems lacking some mention of willingness to engage in tv discussion. Even tv discussion about shows where only one of us watches it (actually thank heavens for BSG, as at the moment otherwise we only share QI and it is hard to have philosophical tearings-apart of that...). Amused by the word definition thing though. Hee. I wish we actually drew up guidelines for the world to follow.

Re: Wanted
Yay! *gives the glomph of welcome back* *and also, cookies*

I have been very aware of the lack of email (from my end) since your LJ-ing started up again. Keep meaning to do something about it (and, actually, there are loads of things in the old threads that I never replied to but still want to). But I'm no longer doing the training thing during the week, and organising myself to sit and type without getting distracted and wandering off for hours at a time is not a strength...

But eventually. Give me time to work up some really strong, focused guilt. ;)

Re: Wanted
Eeeee*is glomphed*eeek.

I'll have you know we were attacked by a horrible vomiting bug and so I am still all feeble and may be broken by over-enthusiastic glomphing.

But ooh, cookies! Cookies and guilt. Mmm, tasty.

(And hah, there are things in the old threads that I still want to go back and dig out at some point too. That religion discussion, for one... hmm. I forget why now and what I wanted to say though...)
