what colour are you? Tripe in:
[font size=7 color=your user name]your user name[/font]

but replace [ ] with the html brackets

[Ed: oh it's pink. Ugh. How disappointing.

This year, my life has been a mixture of sturm und drang, depression, the construction of cheap'n'nasty furniture and grouting. It's like Ingmar Bergman made a film in IKEA. But now, have decided to be outward looking, optimistic and considerably less neurotic. I get to go back to my old job. Huzzah etc.

Spent the whole of yesterday completely elated. Everyone upstairs is talking like I made some brave sacrifice for the good of the ship, which I didn't -- I just wanted to go downstairs and for nobody where I am now to get the push. Still, have had several herograms, which was amusing.

Start again in old job on March 31. It will be odd but good. Mostly odd.

Max (who was passed over for promotion very publicly) and I have declared 2002 "the year of absolutely no ambition". We plan to sit on the backbench and just enjoy ourselves. Bugger all that career plan bollocks.

The Farscape tapes came today and will go in the post this afternoon. I'm taking them to Mount Pleasant because that's one of the biggest sorting offices in London, which should mean they get there quickly. (muffles laughter. Schyeah, right.)

I answered the door to the postman to sign for the package this morning wearing only a Wonder Stuff 'Construction for the Modern Idiot' T-shirt and knickers, having just woken up and looking like something a hedgehog threw up.

The things I do for y'all *g*

whoot!
Nothin' but good news today! Your old job and my tapes! Wheeeee! Fabulous!

Um, except for the answering-door-in-underwear thing. Not so good.

I'm all over the no-ambition thing except that doesn't appear to be an acceptable strategy here. Feh.

HOORAY!
Yay, yay for employment! We were all nervous over here (it came up during the Aussie/ChiYV fun time) and it's glorious to hear that you're not in need of work.

I think you deserve a herogram for coming up with "It's like Ingmar Bergman made a film in IKEA."

YAY! on the job front.

Dear sweet Jebus, this is GREAT.

I am all for no ambition and old jobs. I am all for you being employed and staying that way and having a decent frickin' bathroom and heat.

I am all for you.

you're green to me.
No, seriously. It's not pink at all. It's bright green.
