Another long week finalising this bloody project. After this weekend we are about 40% complete. One more week and we will be totally done. I am also suposed to get my date for retrenchment this week, which would be nice as it would allow me to plan for the first time in 10 months. Bastards mad

I have done nothing but work on this project for...

My last project where i currently work is almost done; first data went over yesterday and the last data should be transferred in the next two weeks. After that is all done hopefully these bastards will retrench me and be done with it. Their incompetence seems to know no bounds.

I finally got a job interview for the first time in 5 months on last...

I went and saw Elling at the theatre on Saturday night. I was dubious about anything billed as a 'Norwegian Comedy' given that funny is not a term i would have associated with any of the rather dour norsemen I have met over the years. The play was based on a series of novels and the first half was very slow and consisted of what...

I went to the Australian Chamber Orchestra on Saturday night at Angel Place. it was a shorter program than usual and a smaller orchestra, with three sextets being presented. The most interesting was Schoenberg's Op. 4 ("Transfigured Night", 1899). I generally don't much care for Schoenberg as he was a leading proponent of the 2nd Viennese school's atonalist philosophy. To many of...

What a couple of weeks. I've been meaning to post for a while and there are a whole lot of group threads i have been meaning to reply to: no such luck.

The job still exists, but as it has for months, the company is hanging on by a thread. It is not that i care if this pack of losers close down. It...

It has been a very slow, very stressful few weeks. I kept thinking i should make a blog post and then thought: what the hell about? About how much I am working? About how pissed I am with the fools running my company? About how much I hate looking for work? About how much I hate dealing with recruiters? I did have one idea that...

I went to When the Rain Stops Falling last night at the Playhouse (which is at the Opera House for those not Sydneysiders). It is by the australian playwright Andrew Bovell and it was fantastic. I have never seen such a complex story - 4 generations of the same family - interwoven so well and without any narration. As the play goes on and you realise more...

Moving tomorrow. I hate moving. It is expensive and/or exhausting. Since I still have a gammy shoulder from moving all my shit into storage two months ago i am having to opt for expensive this time. At least I am not having to move much. It will be nice being close to work again; especially now the weather is cold and i have been...

Well I have my new place. Paid bond last night. Nice little weatherboard place. Ten minutes from the ferry to the city, same from a bus to the city and walking distance to St Leonards Station or to the shops and restaurants in Crowsnest. Not a bad place. Cheap too. Not much of my furniture is going to fit, my desk may not fit at...

I saw the new Wolverine film: nice. However; I wonder how anyone who had not read the comics as a child would have understood it. It was a series of vignettes strung together with no attempt to explain the linkages. Obviously it worked given how popular the movie is proving, but still it was like a meal at Maccas; tasty and enjoyable, but leaving you...
