Oh dear, another angry post

Once more, I'm not motivated to post by a thing of extraordinary beauty witnessed in the early summer light.

No, rather I am motivated by being so incensed right now that I am having diffculty in breathing.
Why won't people just give me money and not expect work in return?
That's how clients should behave.

Instead, I get clients who ask when we can deliver something and get shitty as hell if we can't turn it around in 3 minutes, whilst also furnishing them with a basket of freshly baked muffins.

Surely there is someone out there with bucket-loads of cash who wants to adopt me?
I can be scathingly amusing at times and just require a steady supply of wine (red for preference)
Less hassle than having a cat, I promise: I can feed myself and don't wee on the carpet (all that often).

Eavesdropping of a sort

Am currently sat in the IT suite at the college where I part-time lecture.

Became aware of a general grumbling and kvetching behind me, with some students complaining about a course that they have to attend, and that the timing has changed.

"I can't believe it's been moved, just because some person can't make it on Friday. And 3 hours in a computer suite, how boring. Who is 'Matt Collins' anyway?"

Cue me turning around: "That would be me."

Kinda get the impression that course is going to be fun.

True sign of summer

No, I don't mean swifts, swallows or swift swallows;
Nor the fact that it is still rather showery;
Nor even that there were various celebrations all round the country yesterday.

Nope, the true sign of summer being here is that I went out yesterday without a hat and now have a truly sun-burnt head.
