Looking through a lot of posts just lately it would appear (I for one) a lot of us are off tangent.
So let's see how silly we can really get. Yes I know if no-one posts anything I will be the silliest.
Where would you find a tangent then to fall off
How about this ...
... politicians will always tell the truth, and will work in the best interests of the whole country (not just their pals or the people giving them freebies & perks) and won't waste endless time scoring points against the 'other side'.
Forget it ... that isn't just silly .. it's totally off the scale!
Seriously though, I like the silly threads. It gives you chance to get to know other members without opinions, and views, getting in the way and distorting your ... opinion ... of someone ;)
Well, I know what I mean ... OGA will hopefully translate for the benefit of everyone else ;)
what Shirley means is accountancy is boring and it's much more fun 'avin a larf in time out.
Spot on OGA :)
if Accountancy is boring how come it generates so much silliness and larfter?
@Marion. When you've fallen off as many tangents as I have it becomes second nature.
We only say accountancy is boring when compared to having a reet laf ;)
Accountancy is wonderful .... in small doses, and only when there isn't any fun to be had in Time Out :)
Just for info ... I looked back at the biscuit thread that John linked to in the opening post on the tea & biscuits thread. There were a lot of 'misery guts' around then! I don't think I posted much around that time, as I actually did some work in those days, unlike now!
... I think that is down to one of Newton's laws, equal and opposite reactions type thang - if all people are at an equilibrium, to descend into the depths of boredom that is accountancy, the opposite reaction is to be OTT on the frivolity and silliness scale to compensate!
Either that or it is causality with which the perpetual boredom of accountancy as the cause and childish mirth and puerility as the effect.
... it is the lull before the storm as we avoid thinking about 31st January!
it might be that Accountancy makes the brain work harder - to find answers etc. and has problems switching off. Are we as silly at home as on the awebb?
31st January - is that a festival like thanksgiving or thank something?
The festival of 'ThankGodThat'sOver'
Oh god yes! I have a life long quest to perform the perfect forward roll on a bed ... one that a gymnast would be proud of. I also expect valuable critique from Mrs H. As for her, she works out quite lengthy dance routines in our shower cabinet (it is a double). She will emerge wrinkly but with a perfectly usable advance freestyle routine ready to teach. I also find great delight in a annoying our dogs. One of them comes in from her walk everyday and runs to get on her sofa ... what fun to have gotten there before her and lay full length so she can't get up!
This lady bred border collies, which are very intelligent dogs!
She had an old bitch that always grabbed the best place on the rug in front of the fire. One day, one of the younger dogs raced ahead and grabbed the old dog's spot, and the old dog had to lay elsewhere. This happened for a couple of days, then one day, the old dog ran to the door and started barking, so all the other dogs ran to the door, at which point the old dog raced back and grabbed the best place on the rug.
The younger dogs eventually learned their lesson, but one day the old dog barked at the door, and even when the other dogs joined her she continued to bark, so the owner got up to see what the fuss was about ... at which point the old dog raced back and leaped into her chair ;)
Anya learned from a pup that if she looked sheepish and ran to the back door and back a few times then I would get up to let her out. A few times she has passed me on the way only to jump in my warm spot. She also hides last thing at night when it is time for the last wee. She will pick a place where neither my wife or I can see her .. wait 30 seconds and then trot back to my wife as if she is all done! Manipulation is quite high on the social skills ladder even for humans but dogs have no problems!
My doglet has a deal with my eldest cat - he starts morning 'I need feeding' routine from 5.30am onwards, progresses from miaowing by the side of the bed to jumping on me and bouncing back off, then jumps on dog (who is under duvet hogging bed) who shoots out, they have a game of chase a few times so she can keep returning to the bed before leaping off again using me as a trampoline, I finally get up in disgust and she dives straight back under the duvet for another half hour and won't be disturbed by anyone while cat saunters off downstairs.
But then I stop her from beating me up the stairs by walking up with one foot at each side so she can't squeeze past. It's not exactly dignified, more like a waddle, but she's not yet worked out that she could shoot through between my legs so I get to feel marginally superior.
And she does try nicking the chair when I get up but then I go and stretch out on the sofa so she has to decide whether to stick with her prize or lose face by joining me!
Bless 'em :)
Our big dog isn't allowed on the furniture, but our cats adore their cuddles, so they try to guess where we are going to sit and then they race there first and roll on their backs with a soppy look on their faces that just pleads for you to pick them up & cuddle them. We have to move them before we can sit down anyway ... so might as well give them a cuddle. Our male cat loves to be squeezed and he is like one of those teddy bears, except instead of a growl we get a very LOUD purr when you squeeze and cuddle him.
Yes ... our cats have got us very well trained :)
sadly however carefully you shut the door each morning by bed time it is completely unmade with lurcher shaped depressions all over it! Now that he only has a few weeks left I have taken to leaving the door open as I like to listen to him growling as he does tumble turns up and down it.
