Poignantly and coincidentally, my son was in the midst of reading the first Earthsea novel as she was breathing her last.

And my students were reading "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas."

Taxonomy of Choral Shitness

* Spanners
* Bag of Spanners
* Rank
* Rank on Rank (as in, the host of heaven)
* Shithouse
* Total Shithouse
* Choral Terrorism

- Additional category, generally reserved for T&B: Louder than Lovely (as in, never be... oh but you were!)

- Special category for the Spent Alto: It's Over Dear (on receipt of the special card, proffered on the special cushion, along with a silken handkerchief to mop up the tears and snotters)

I regret to report an act of Rank, bordering on Rank on Rank occurred during this evening's rehearsal.

Sopranos were required to make the first entry in the AG on F#, marked mp, in context suggesting a rather dreamy quality, certainly necessitating some attention to ensemble and a tiny, tiny bit of technique.

One of them was sharp, more than one was flat. One was unsure of what an F# sounds like, and therefore scooped.

Fuckers.

Remedied by the Assistant Organist walloping an F# on the piano on the next pass, and therefore avoiding categorisation as Shithouse.

TICTH a day which was supposed to promise fixing a bunch of bugs before a ship deadline. This turned into repeated sessions with the corporate firewall locking me out and Windowwas a s requiring updates on two machines.

The final moment was at lunch when the smoke detector in the dining area began to bleep loudly every few minutes. A comic time was had by me ending with me knocking the damn thing off the ceiling with my crutch. I thought it was the battery but the detector said to replace it by 2006.

The situation with the elderly man with hygiene issues I mentioned above, again, not the man but the issues. It's gotten to the point where we are starting official banning procedures, and I feel awful about it, not that it's any responsibility of mine. We can't have him here, the reek is awful, and he's left feces and urine around several times, but the library is his life at this point, and I don't know what's going to happen to him. [Frown]

Maybe this is more of the same, but all PIP claims are to be reassessed. I guess the DWP have realised that those who do the assessments can't find their arseholes with both hands behind their back.

You were blessed by one of the more kindly firegods. A couple of nights ago my Dear Wife, who has a quite dreadful cold, decided to inhale the steam in a very hot shower at 3 AM. The smoke alarm went off. There was no way to cancel it except remotely by the alarm company. The house is rented by her mother from the church and is listed under the church name at the alarm company, who properly called the police and fire departments, who then came out looking for a church. By the time the alarm was cancelled and they had found us, we had two police cars and the fire chief here and I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the police officer while clad only in my boxer shorts, everyone else having vanished. The fire chief didn't stay, as it was the second time it had happened at this address. I could go on...

I suppose Mel is in need of redemption.

On this note, I'd like TCTH redemption. And well I'm at it, heaven. To hell with heaven.

The use of 'impact' to mean 'affect' or 'impacts' to mean 'effects'. And if there are any soi-disant grammatical descriptivists around who think that this escapee from the worst management speak is a neutral piece of language drift I would kindly appreciate them to de-incentivise their opinions going forward.

MOTHER. FUCKER.

When I hear stories like the above, or about senior citizens being scared out of their nest egg by tax scammers I try to tone down my hostility by reminding myself that the people who do this stuff are most likely working in economically sparse areas and to send up a prayer that these people find work that does not require them to act like (or work for) scum sucking bottom feeding dickbags.

In the meantime, double-fuck anyone who makes Dulce sad. [Mad]

TICTH the undoubtedly nice and well-intentionned lady who spread herself so loudly and intrusively over the fund-raising quiz last night. I spent the evening tuning her out. A voice that cut like a knife, and a barrage of comments which tended to drown out the quiz-master. All meant in fun, no doubt, but gave me brain-pain.

Dear people who employ freelancers, every time you decide not to reply to emails, take 3 months and counting to pay invoices, decide that it's not necessary to inform us that a job has gone elsewhere after numerous statements of enthusiasm, synchronising diaries and turning down other work, decide that 20 hour days and having to cancel social events isn't worth remuneration, you should realise your actions have consequences for real people.

TICTH

Events that tell you the ticket price is from £x, then use a single vendor who also charges a booking fee.
It is therefore impossible to actually buy a ticket for £X and by the time you have bought tickets for a group of 4 to go, the whole process has added a further 15% onto the price.

If I can never ever buy a ticket for £x because there is no other vendor but you, why even mention it? Just tell us the whole bloody price up front so we don't find ourselves spending 15% more than we had anticipated. [Mad]

Synthetic fibres. Or possibly detergent. Whatever the hell it is makes my skin itch like the stings of a million ants.

Sodding supermarkets pushing in-house inferior concoctions in preference to superior serviceable products.

And while I'm about it, manufacturers "improving" and reformulating products. Surcare, I'm looking at you.

And changing the recipes for well-known products. Not good for those of us try, occasionally, to cook for those with allergies.

Vegetarians. The evangelical variety. Food sheriffs of all kinds can eat their carrot weiner hotdogs* quietly without all the fake superior lipsmacking gusto and trolling comversation). Pass the bacon!


*this really exists. while we are at it, to hell with the internet where people find such culinary abominations. Fake cauliflower pizza crusts is another one. I want meat that pretends to be veg.

Fucking ex tropical cyclones. Sick of them and all the other bloody crap like earthquakes, fires, threatened tsunamis etc.

and the way they all tweak PTSD. At least with quakes there's not the build up of days of earnest people from the Met Service warning you - just a rattle and bang! it's all over, and you are either alive or not (and not sometimes feels preferable).

Huia - totally pissed off, and waiting for the 4 Horse riders.
