Agile Made Good

I find this funny, right here and right now. I suspect special courses, and special spectacles, exist that allow management to interpret what might essentially represent a good idea in this uniquely horrific way…

The Chair in Boo Garden

I’m sitting in the garden right now writing this blog entry, having already twittered, Boo’d and updated my Facebook status. Despite approaching social networking with uncertainty from the outset, I now embrace Facebook, Twitter and similar outpourings like old friends. In many respects they are just that.

Reading Firsts

Yesterday, I started reading ‘Dreamsnake’ by Vonda N. McIntyre. My reading this book presents all sorts of personal firsts. Firstly, despite her success and science fiction literary awards, this will be the first time I have ever read a book by McIntyre. I like the idea of coming to an author for the first time,…

Zuitable for Everyone

In the distant past, Channel 4 provided an oasis of incredible alternative comedy that turned heads and raised smiles. In those days Vic and Bob were having a Big Night Out, Frank Skinner resided in My Blue Heaven, Robert Lindsey was funny in Nightingales and in the wee small hours of the late evening we…

If Molly and B&Q Got Together

Sometimes you can’t keep a good post down. And, OK… this one definitely comes from an old post from the older than old version of Boreders. That promise of Summer in the not too distant future reminded me I had this lying around. The question I had to ask myself was – what if Molly…

Corpsing Today

Charlotte Green had a fit of the giggles this morning on the 8am bulletin for the Today programme. I listened, with a smile spreading across my face, as I drove into work. This little moments make that commute all the more bearable. Dear Charlotte Green reported the news of an American researcher team who have…
