OS measurementation of what?

what's this for?One of the joys of working for an engineering company is learning the new language, the language of Engineering

For example, this item raised a smirk from me and so many questions. What is this? What does it do? Who would buy it? How would they use it? Does it come with any attachments? Does OS mean ‘Operating System’? Should I buy one in case of emergencies?

What do you think?

Mine’s a pint of Bass

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007 | tags: , , , , ,  |

My Seattle leaving do was full of a hand-picked set of local characters that  I’ve met  through blogging, tea parties, being a Lecturer in a past life, and being taken to bizarre mountain getways surrounded by gnomes and melon-eating hyennas (you had to be there).   LaCroix and I were able to indulge our predelictions for Bass ale,   while others drank iced tea,   all around it was a stonker!   One of the girls that arranged this party  had also attended my ‘leaving the UK’ party in April 2000!  

By the end of the excellent  evening everything was slightly fuzzy.    I had to hold onto the patriotic balloons in order to maintain a standard  upright position.   The infamous grin was on full display all evening.

a vote for yellow wonky teeth

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007 | tags: , , , ,  |

In October my facebook friends no longer described me as predominantly  arrogant and mouthy,   Hoorah!

They  have found that my frequent unveiling of yellow wonky teeth  is  my main virtue.   Needless to say, I don’t count any  US Dentists amongst my friends.  

Obviously I could survive on a desert island without panicking about the lack of a dental floss and could focus on the more fun stuff   like some serious splashing in the sea,   exploring,    then bedtime  with  a drop of fermented coconut milk and lashings of ‘goodnight John-Boy’,   ‘goodnight Mary-Ellen’   Waltonesque politeness.  

The total omission of the category ‘worst speller’ is because the Facebook applet  does not compare people on this dimension.   Otherwise I’m sure creative speller would be up there amongst my top virtues.   While I’m considering this I’ll have half a dozen a cups of tea because I surely can drink a lot of tea,   as indeed my friends conscientiously observe.

Then in November my wonky teeth got knocked off the top slot by my outstanding manners with new entries replacing adventurous and best companion on a desert island with loyal and dateable.     In the light of my repatriation this all makes good sense because while the UK is an island,   it is not a desert,   and returning to the UK can be viewed more as native loyalty than adventerousness.   Dateable?   Hmmmm….   this is questionable on the grounds that no-one has actually managed to achieve a ‘date’ in 2007.

Goodness knows where the manners came from,   probably mumzie.
