One of the new rules handed down in work upon moving into the new building was that only directors are allowed to front door. The plebs must use the back door. What is the point of such a rule, when most of the parking is at the back? All it does is make the staff resent the directors. They aren’t better people than staff, they are no more deserving of going in the front door than anyone else. Things like this really get on my nerves. With this in mind, I’ve been wearing a suit all week in work, as you can see -
I’ve not actually had a reason to walk through the front door, but I’m just biding my time. I’d be interested to hear any reason why I can’t use the front door? Because I’m not smart enough? No chance of that anymore. We’ll see how that goes.
As a side effect of the suit, I have been waxing my hair into various styles during the week. It’s reasonably long at the moment, and Mum keeps telling me it’s too long for whatever I’ve done to it on that particular day. I quite like it though like this (although you can’t really see it in that pic), so I’ll just keep growing it until I get bored of it – got to get it long at least once before it inevitably falls out after all!
Lots of people on my links page seem to have gone on hiatus of late – which makes reading them quick work, if a tad dull. I guess they’ve discovered real life. Writing away on something like this is fairly theraputic, but I often wonder why I do it. Some people seem to be consistently funny on their pages, or interesting, but I don’t think mine is either most of the time. Which is strange really as I think of myself as quite a funny person in real life, but I think quite a lot of my humour is reactive, and you need someone else around to start the gag off.
Reciprocal linking is quite a strange business. Two people who read each others sites, but have never actually met. I think I’ve been doing this for over a year now, and most of the links for people I’ve not actually met are links of this kind. It’s a funny side to today society when we can get in contact with anyone at the touch of a few buttons anywhere in the world, yet I know more about some people I’ve never met and only read about on their sites. I guess maybe it’s related to this whole celebrity culture, which is really more of a nosy parker culture. We like to know what other people are doing, except we’ve moved from twitching the curtains to reading websites to find out about those we don’t know. Personally, I would love to meet and get to know everyone on my links page. I read their sites because they interest me, and I generally get on with people who interest me. I think other people probably think the same thing, but no one does because they prefer the lovely impersonal nature of weblogs.
Not that what I’ve just said makes much sense, I’m not the most lucid person when it comes to writing, and often forget words or sentenances because I’ve thought of the next one before typing the first. So sorry if it’s a bit nonsensical.
