A busy day

Posted by That Other Mike on 07/07/2008

Well, I think it can be said that the first day at the new office went well.

I found all of the stuff that I had packed sitting on my desk, and I mean all of it. A huge pile of stuff. I got most of it put away, and then we moved onto the filing. There were approximately 35 boxes of it, packed full. Not small ones, either – each of them is about 1 1/2 metres long, half a metre wide and the same deep. That’s a lot of filing, I’ll tell you right there.

I then spent most of the day teaching other people how to use the phone system and new photocopier-printer-fax-scanner thingie. This despite having only this morning been taught how to use them myself by the ICT people. Further real work was prevented by my database playing up. On the plus side, I do have a new computer, factory fresh. On the negative, so does everyone else, so I also spent a long time setting minor problems to rights with them, too… All in all, it’s been a busy day, but satisfying in a way: we’re completely moved into the fancy new building on the business park, and while the office is open plan and shared with other teams, by the time they move in, we’ll have been there months already and will have superiority and they’ll have to adapt to us, rather than the other way around. Office politics.

I’m still working on the bit about I Am Legend, but will have it soon.

In other news – the most popular search term for me right now is Charles Darwin, and untold numbers of people are looking at the birthday post I did way back when. And I have no idea why.

Speaking of searches, one of my most popular terms is dinosaur noises. Whoever is consistently searching for dinosaur noises and finding me, I salute you – your nutty persistence is a testament to human weirdness. As strange as that is, it pales in comparison to the newest persistent search term, which is pirate noises. The third most popular weird search is donkey in a bathtub and variations thereupon.

You people are weird.


I am currently damaging my ears with Electric Samurai (again) and Gone Gone Gone by Charlie Feathers. Yes, I know listening to a Japanese axe-master and a 50s rockability one after the other is odd.

On my film list recently: The Evil Dead, The Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. Look forward to reviews, campers.

  1. “Atheist literary agents” seems to be attracting a few hits for me, at the moment. And, of course, “Tommy steel Elvis London”-combinations. (I really must write a follow-up to that sometime soon… old Tommy never did get back to me with a statement!) Another of my favourites is “what famous person died from an ingrown”. I’m assuming that the full search term finished with “toenail”, but will we ever really know? 😉

    Variations of “me love you long time” bring in a lot of hits for me. Also “abstinence”, “abstinence only”, etc. The strangest one I get is “nude rambling”. Whatever floats your boat… lol

    Oh, and terms about dating, long distance relationships and stuff like that.

    I’m going to edit in those tags and see what happens…

    Well, did anything happen?

    Not so much. Maybe I should’ve added “thong” to the list…
