A wardrobe full of the wrong trousers – part 2

Posted by episode81 on November 29, 2013

Bar1It has been about a year since I last posted here. I have been busy at work and just haven’t found the time. I keep thinking of subjects to post about, but I can’t hold the thought for long enough to get to the keyboard. A few of the blogs that I read are also somewhat erratic. I am in good company.

A wardrobe full of the Wrong Trousers

Posted by episode81 on December 5, 2012

It has been an odd week. I had minor abdominal surgery last Friday and it went well, but was very different to what I expected. Everyone at the hospital was kind – expected. I got to wear purple socks and a snazzy hat – unexpected. I took a long time to wake up – unexpected. Pain was minimal, drugs were maximal – 🙂

Getting shirty

Posted by episode81 on January 3, 2012

Shirts? Or not. I'll go with not in this case.

I love giving presents to people.  Let’s be honest, I love getting them … slightly more 😀

ThinkGeek is a great source of ideas.  O. M. G.  They have Stargate coasters!  Want.

From Elvis to Neelix

Posted by episode81 on December 31, 2011

Not a great look

I have been watching Star Trek: Voyager on NetFlix.  I am up to Season 5 and I still loath Neelix.  Neelix’s favorite Talaxian poet?  Durex.  I kid you not.

Less is more

The first hit is free

I have accumulated too much stuff.  Too many clothes I don’t wear.  Ditto shoes. And <gulp> ditto handbags.  Yes, that’s right.  Too many handbags!

I started buying decent handbags after my handbag was stolen in Munich nearly 20 years ago.  I was there on business and someone took it from under the table where I was eating breakfast.  Creepy.  In the bag was all my money, credit cards, passport and plane ticket home.  Bugger.

I hurried to the UK Consulate as my flight was that afternoon.  I needed to get a temporary passport and some money.  I was declared destitute and given enough cash for a passport pic and to get the ticket reissued.

Ah, paper tickets.  How I don’t miss you.

I got back OK, but I was really annoyed to lose my handbag.  On the upside, my handbag was insured and I replaced it with a Coach handbag.  That was my first good handbag.

If I ever go back to Munich, I have to repay the money that the UK Consulate gave me.  Unsurprisingly, I have never returned.

Naked 2.0

Old Turkey

I have mentioned before that Alan loves to bark at nothing on the fence.  He seems to particularly love  barking at the place where the bird was rather than where it is now … but then he wouldn’t be able to see it it, so he wouldn’t bark.  Ah, there is method to his madness.

Apple. Nice people.

1955 - 2011

I have mentioned before my love affair with handbags.  I have bags that I have never carried because I am terrified of getting blemishes on them.  My most fabulous bag is a Fendi Spy.  It has been out of the house precisely once.  I carried a trash bag with me in case of rain, dust storms, tumbleweeds or plagues of frogs.

Cooler than Apple. Or not.

Posted by episode81 on October 3, 2011

Insanely cool

I arranged to meet a friend for lunch outside Borders – a great central landmark with shade, books to browse and seating while I wait.  Now that Borders has closed, there is no shade, no books and no seating.  As I am almost always early, this is a bit of  a pain.  However, it is right across the street from the very cool Apple store, so I switched our meeting point.  No books or seats, but, aaaaah, air conditioning on a hot day 🙂

Phil

Posted by episode81 on September 11, 2011

Santa Clara

I worked with Phil at Sun – even though we were on opposite coasts, our paths crossed frequently as we were both in the same group.  Nice guy.  We had a bit of a disagreement over a project and then our paths just crossed less often.

Quite a while later I ran into Phil in the corridor.  He stopped me to chat – I was just going to keep walking. We talked about that project.  We had a bit of a laugh.  We agreed to spend more time together, perhaps on his next trip, to see if there was a joint project we could collaborate on.

Phil’s next trip was on September 11th 2001.

I am so grateful that he made me stop and we had that chat.

Now I never delay resolving an issue.  I don’t even wait a day.

I went down to the old Sun campus today to take a moment to remember Phil.

Thank you for your friendship and sage guidance Phil.

Lisa.

RIP
