Oh well.

Interesting to see what happens when you turn up at 10:30 and they tell you it's midday.

Singers who sing in an American accent, when they are not American.

The working day, what happened to 9-5? I My last job was 8-5pm, this current job is 8/5pm, I have just been approached by a job agency about another role and the hours are 6.30am until 4.30pm. She even told me that the company offer a good work life balance.

The receptionist said it's 10:30 but it says in midday in the appointment comments and she doesn't know what time I'll be seen - more likely midday but could 10:30. Excellent

And while we're at it give muggers and burglars a chance.

Grealish's stupid hair style. Hair cut I should say - there's nothing remotely "stylish" about it. :jerkit:

Are you still there?

People who describe their occupation as an 'Influencer.' Seems like anyone who does a Tik-Tok video, doesn't do a day's work, and has an Instagram following of nine can use this term.

Passport control in Nairobi.

Squeezed in in a free-for-all with 200 other sweaty *****, no AC and 2 open desks.

30 dollars buys you a fast-track service that lets you bypass most of that.

It was the state of breakfast in Belgium a few weeks ago. We see what you're doing here. Look forward to the next thrilling instalment.

France, thank you.

Having just had the privilege of a weekend scaling Table Mountain and other touristy things in Cape Town, and a further 3 days in Johannesburg, Iíve now moved onto an overnight stay in Nairobi before spending Friday in Dar Es Salaam.

Long week. (Cape Town is amazing, though).

Oh, and it took me 2.5 hrs to get through that ******* queue.

Cheers!

What's the commute like? 6.30am start is suggesting a 5.30am leave the house. And will you really be leaving your desk at 4.30pm every day?

It's about 20 mins so not too bad be the same on way home.

Watch the bloody game you've paid to attend in person! And if you want to see highlights then they are on YouTube or MOTD, put together by professionals whose video recording skills are considerably better than yours!

Not just at football, try going to a concert, loads of twats doing the same there.

Also art galleries and museums and famous public monuments/buildings. It's bonkers.

There seems to be a need for people to show their friends and family what exciting lives they are leading. No problem at all with the occasional photo of something a bit different, maybe in the form of a strong recommendation to visit. It gets a bit much when people are constantly posting their restaurant meals.

I might start posting up pics of every time I visit mundane places, fast food emporiums, banks, supermarkets, or the view from my toilet seat.
