Tuesday saw more work on the musical. Chris and I appear to have produced something truly... longer than 25 minutes. We proved this by performing all we had completed, bar one song, in 25 minutes. So, if length is important, we're on the right track. In seriousness, there are bits of this musical I find myself humming incessantly - I feel like I've infected myself with a meme of at least partly my own devising - this is akin to shooting oneself in the foot, but feels a lot better.
The work side of things was interesting on Tuesday too. A fun meeting, coupled with some real progress on my project... good stuff!
Wednesday saw a marvellous revelation in the weight department, a chance to organise a work-related trip (and extend my non-work-related trip - thanks again CB!), a fun time debating and... well, does there need to be any more? Okay, I also got a chance to fix a problem which was considered very difficult to fix - it was a fluke, but I simply moved about 12 characters out of one file and into another and the program started to behave itself! That's some sort of result...
I also bought a bag for my trip. The lady in Woolworths took this sale-item bag and inspected its zip. I thought that was good - perhaps she is ensuring I'll not bring it back damaged. Then she took a quick peak inside. At that point, I realised she'd actually been distracting my attention from the fact that she was ensuring it was empty. I reckon if I'm going to be accused of being a thief, she should at least have the decency to do it to my face.
Then I managed to get a laugh from one of my favourite new catchphrases - Ancient Chinese Proverb: A man does not know patience until he has attempted to iron a fitted sheet - which I attributed to the Chinese Book of the Dead.
To top it off, I even got to buy some sweets and then not eat them - I had some fresh fruit later on in my own honour (see yesterday's weblog for what I'm getting at!).
