    Small, unworthy things: part whatever

    Trevor-Hilary the gender bending toad did she wear a pantsuit?

    Trevor is the sweet and dependable old man who likes to tend his garden come rain or shine. Barry is the alcoholic racist who props up the bar at the local

    To Tweet Or Not To Tweet? That Is The Question!

    Yep, LinkedIn is the same for me. Seems like a rather lazy tool for recruitment agencies. That may be different at higher level jobs or different industries but really not great experiences from me otherwise

    Careerchat III

    Had some great feedback lately at work, and today i stepped out of my comfort zone too. We had some training for a new process that our particular office has never done before this week, but that we will be getting a lot more of in coming months. I was one of the three who worked on what we got this wee so had more context than most in the training. It meant i had some ideas on how to improve, how to make the training clearer, some handy advice for others etc. I was apprehensive to share this as ive only worked here for 6 weeks now but i approached a manager and put forward my basic ideas and comments. She was thrilled with my suggestions and i have been put in charge of a group to create a suitable training exercise for this process and oversee its implementation! Bouncing off the walls i was so chuffed

    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    Hm, opinion much more divided than i once thought. For me the Heroes isthe weakest standalone. I don’t dislike it, i just find it less interesting than the others

    Aussie Thread: Democracy Sausage

    Australia (and the U.S.) have historically been somewhat resistant to ratifying international climate agreements havent they? Am I recalling correctly if i say they didn’t ratify Kyoto despite their high emissions?

    UK Politics: It's Life Pfeffel but not as we know it

    Would it be too much trouble to ask you to repeat your answer then please?

    To Tweet Or Not To Tweet? That Is The Question!

    I dont have a twitter account but will read through specific people’s feeds from time to time, mostly comedians and other actors. i have facebook. I havent updated it really since 2015 but still scroll through as it is a handy way of seeing how people i went to school with are doing. I have instagram. I dont use it though

    UK Politics: It's Life Pfeffel but not as we know it

    Did you? My recollection was you ignored when people asked what you meant by British culture. If i’m wrong, misremembering or overlooked your response i apologise but that is how i thought it went

    U.S. Politics: Moscow Mitch

    This is more or less the position the UKSC took in Lee v Ashers Bakery. You can refuse the order for a bespoke cake so long as it isnt the PC of the person ordering the cake that is the reason. I.e. whether the person was male or female, gay, straight, bisexual, transsexual etc. you would have refused the order. Bull and Bull v Hall and Preddy is quite instructive too. That case WAS discrimination, but from the judgment i dont know it would be discrimination now - at the time, it was not possible for gay people to get married, so the PCP of not giving double rooms to unmarried couples disproportionately affected homosexuals.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Midsommar Night Blues

    I loved Flowers! Didnt realise there was a second series, excellent! As for British comedy declining, eh. I love the older comedies as much as the next person but i feel much of that is nostalgia (they were my childhood, albeit they were re-runs and/or vhs tapes). If i stand back and try to judge them more objectively they aren’t exactly fantastic

    First look at Olivia Colman in The Crown S3, looking very much like Claire Foy.
