So important in this day of hustle and bustle.
Also very effective when used in certain ways.
We've had some compliance issues with some procedures, and I was asked to talk to the offenders. I don't have the time or desire to speak with
So I posted a sign instructing the users to follow procedures. And the sign went something like this.
"Blah, blah, blah. Don't try our patience."
Worked a treat. So far compliance has been good, and even better some people have been seen to skirt the hallway when I pass them.
In other news, I've been trying to be patient too, but not very successfully. And it's all got to do with the great Google Overlords to whom I've cleaved, to whom I've entrusted digital life, to whom I pledge all obedience, love and honour. The GGOs announced the launch of Android 2.3 in December saying that it would be pushed out to ID and his brethren very soon.
Well. It's now February, and nothing has pinged ID yet. He too is surely becoming impatient.
But now there are ]omens, even if some call them rumours that something may happen.
Be still my heart. Be STILL MY HEART.
OH GGO - I beseech thee. Let the OTA roll out. Forsake us not.
Let's see if this works. I'm keeping my fingers crossed now.
In other news, the masses of red tape continue to wind themselves around me. However, I did manage to outrun them twice on the weekend. Once in my nice warm kangaroo leather encased vibrams, and the second time in my regular vibrams. The transition is going well - I'm now starting to run on consecutive days in them to acclimatize the calves to the new motion. I've also broken the 60 minute mark. I'm also becoming used to the questions from the more evolved around me and have spread the word about these wonderful shoes. Arches - who needs them - aside from old bridges across the Arno of course?
The last person to ask me questions about the shoes even said, that the vibrams must work because, and I quote here, "You [referring to ME in case that wasn't clear] were going at a pretty fast clip". Yes I thought I was - but it's always good to have independent confirmation.
The only other thing I can think of at the moment is executing a most elegant, graceful and generally well-choreographed dismount from my bike one wet and rainy evening on the weekend as DWE was walking towards me. Well, of course I was going to dismount to greet his regalness and see how he was doing. He was most impressed by my dismount.
"Most. Excellent!", he said (I translate of course).
And that's all the exciting things to happen to me. At least the ones I can speak about.
