The fridge delivery

So there we were on Friday afternoon at Oporto getting lunch when we got the call from the secondhand furniture shop that they wanted to deliver our fridge to the flat. Twenty minutes later and we arrive at the flat clutching our take-away bags to find the dude waiting outside for us. Then we get upstairs with the fridge and he decides to provide an inspection of the flat for us for free. So he wanders around looking in all the rooms and offering unsolicited advice while we stand around in the kitchen area wondering when he's going to leave so that we can eat our damn lunch already. "How much are you paying for it?" He asks. "Hey look, you have an ocean view" (referring to the inch or so of sea visible from the window). "It's pretty good for the price" (Thanks dude..)
Anyway, he did eventually leave us to baptise our new flat with the aromas of cheap Portugese chicken and chips.

The work stupidity goes on

One of my coworkers told me in all seriousness that although he hadn't seen the first three movies, he still enjoyed Fantastic Four.

The self-referential test: One of these days when I have an hour or two spare I plan to sit down and complete it. Basically it's a fiendishly difficult logic puzzle, making Sudoku look like a game of Tic Tac Toe by comaprison.

The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas: A short short story by Ursula Le Guin, it's an interesting look at the philosophical utilitarianism arguments. Is it ok to torture one person if it means one hundred people can prosper?

Boomshine: It's one of those addictive Flash games. The gameplay is very simple and I love the music.
