About time you started working, LJ

Happy Birthday pombagira!! I hope this year brings all the things you've been working so hard for all this time. You've earned it.

Also, when are you kicking off your thing at Fidels tonight? Enquiring minds want to know.

Please hold for an interlude written especially for miryai:

In other news, the YoT's driving instructor is called Les Purvis. An unfortunate name. He informed me that since the government raised the skill level for a driver's licence to the equivalent of approximately 120 hours behind the wheel, it's affecting those without a car or money to pay for lessons in that they are often unable to practice enough to get a licence. According to this guy, about 25% of drivers on the road at any given time are in breach of licence regulations these days. I have no idea how true that is but it was interesting to hear.

We did the Shakeout practice thing this morning - all hiding under our desks, clinging to the legs of them, while the HR lady ran around checking we were doing it right and fielded comments about how she was totally doing it wrong. It was a bit of a joke but I got something from it in that I now know where the legs on my desk are for easy grabbage should an actual earthquake require it.

This reminds me a lot of the Melbourne shuffle, only it's from the 1920s. Well, the dance is. The music is Daft Punk.
