So any other drones occupying the hive today? Our office is pretty dead. I reckon there might be about 15 people all up. Apparently we're supposed to stay til the end of the day, but I'm not sure that whoever is in charge of locking up will want to stay that long so I'm hoping they kick us out in an...

So I get to work today and go to the kitchen to put my lunch in one of the fridges, which are typically full of moldy forgotten lunches. Found a post package - cue me ranting about who the fuck leaves their post in the fridge when there's not enough room for food … I pulled it out and it was address...
I was in a $2 shop at lunchtime as a colleague was after a rolling pin. We didn't find any, but we did find these two items: Face stick Movable stick They also had wigs so you could dress up from that time when Britney Spears and Paris Hilton were in Fla...

Very good to see you teaching him the classics Hekate+Bain :)

Have you got Go the Fuck to Sleep? If you haven't already I assume you'll be getting a few copies of them as gifts shortly haha.

No but we've seen it. Very apt since Aedan was up for four hours last night …
Dog Dog has lots of textured panels and pull tabs to make dogs move. It has a rhyming story describing each dog on the page. Kids will love: touching all the furry tails, ears etc., trying to pull off moving parts and learning to work the pull tabs Pare...
Since there are a few of us with babies and little kids, I thought I'd start a thread on children's books. Where's Spot? It's dinner time and Spot is missing! His mum, Sally, goes looking for him. She seems pretty unconcerned about all the dangerous animals hiding around the h...

To be fair, that seems to apply whether you work in government or just any office.

The other two IT guys now also have standing desks …

That sounds like a really shitty situation for you, that sort of thing will really ruin your day / week. Sounds like a really shitty situation for him too since he's likely batshit crazy and in need of some serious help. Shitty situations for everyone! I just laughed it off actually. I've been rand...

My organisation, the Metropolitan Planning Authority, is frighteningly similar to the NBA in Utopia.

The entire show is an unsettlingly accurate commentary on the industry.

Bain finds it hard to watch because it's eerily similar to his government place of work

I went for a walk around the park at lunch with a work friend. As we walked past a covered bbq/seating area, some crazy bearded homeless guy with a trolley starting yelling at me, starting with stuff like 'you can shut up, four-eyes', then progressed to calling me a fucking slut. Not sure what I did...
