Coffee Experiments
Mar 13, 2021

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?

I should be sleeping
Jul 5, 2016

Another late night for me. My project at work is pretty demanding, with very tight deadlines and quite a bit to do in each sprint. I’m trying to keep on top of it, but it does mean I’ve done a bit more “out of hours work” than I’d like.

Public transport blues
Sep 10, 2014

It doesn’t take much: one smarmy bus driver and my mood has taken a dive. Transport NSW (I think it is) is rolling out a new NFC ticketing system called Opal, very similar by all accounts to Myki in Melbourne (but not compatible, right?

I wandered down to the Tower Of London from work one lunch-time last week, planning to mingle with the tourists and pretend/imagine I was one of them. Instead, I stumbled upon a demonstration of archaic weaponry!

Snowed under with work
Feb 2, 2009

Forward, soldiers
Oct 30, 2007

The week begins. For me it began with a cup of green tea, rather than a coffee, and I’m feeling somewhat weird so I don’t know whether it’s because of that or just whatever was giving me a headache this morning (which is still around a little bit, despite taking nurofen).
