Malaysia Day 5 & 6

Day 5

We went right off radar for breakfast before my GF’s job interview when we went to Starbucks for a latte and a tiramisu dessert, but it was convenient and in the location of the meeting so n’ya! Continue reading “Malaysia Day 5 & 6”

Day 4 In Malaysia – Cats

2015-02-03 12.41.16

On our way to breakfast we walked past a restaurant and there were these two cats in a cage and I was all like “I bet those cats are happy in that cage” and my GF was all like “they’re pets”.

Aye, right.

Leave Science To The Experts

2014-12-19-kidssciencescientistsillustrationschooleducation.jpg

Science is hard. I completed my degree in chemistry some 20 years ago and remember how difficult some of that stuff was. Memorising the periodic table and the electron configurations of all the transition metals; trying to figure where the axes of symmetry are on a molecule, in three dimensions, in your head; figuring out what precursors you need to make Limonene (dead easy, Diels-Alder dimerisation of isoprene, ‘natch). Aye, science is hard shit, yo. Continue reading “Leave Science To The Experts”

Hi There How Can We Help You?

are you real?

Chrissie – WordPress.com: Hi there! I am very real.

Chrissie – WordPress.com: How can I help you today?

right, but you must get this a lot and I guess folks often wonder if you’re real and not a robot so before I tell what I need can I just ask you a few human sounding questions?

Chrissie – WordPress.com: lol. Too true. And I’m ready for human questions 🙂

OK, so you’re in the desert and you see a tortoise lying on its back gasping for air but you don’t help. Why is that?

Chrissie – WordPress.com:Guess I should re-phrase that to human questions regarding WordPress 🙂 But just to answer – non issue. I would help the tortoise.

ok, right, this is a good start. Next question, ready?

Chrissie – WordPress.com: If it’sWordPress.com related… 😉

right OK, got it. WordPress is in the desert and sees a tortoise lying on its back but wordpress doesn’t stop to help. Why is that?

Chrissie – WordPress.com: lol. WP always helps

awesome! so, um, final question, and I think it is likely you are human, WP can’t possibly afford to have chat folks with every WP user so I’ve obviously clicked something to get onto some kind of marketing list. Can you advise?

Chrissie – WordPress.com: We have the chat box open when we have operators available. It’s for those with any sort of upgrade on their blogs.

oh I see. I don’t think I’m after anything in particular because I’m happy with the product and if I’m being honest, needed a break from work and fancied a chat with a random

Chrissie – WordPress.com: Well, it was a fun break in my day.

Chrissie – WordPress.com: If you have any other questions, please feel free to open up chat and let us know 🙂

Chrissie – WordPress.com: I hope you have a wonderful day!

I will and BTW I am human 

Chrissie – WordPress.com: you sure?

oh bravo

I can prove it

Chrissie – WordPress.com: Not just a robot who loves tortoises?

Chrissie – WordPress.com: lol. Have a great day!

I’m a robot that loves Babymetal

QR Codes

So I was at work and when I was in the kitchen I saw a can of fly spray and that was kinda cool but then at the end of the ingredients I saw a QR code and I was all like “why would any one put a QR code on a can of fly spray?” and “I bet there are millions of folks downloading the QR scanner and then taking the time to scan this QR code on this can of fly spray”.

Marks & Spencer Deli Antipasti Selection

I went to Marks and Spencer yesterday for a spot of lunch and bought this Deli antipasti stuff:IMG_2363

Most of it was OK but the olives were really weird and I felt the need to complain to M&S customer services but I couldn’t find an email for them so instead wrote to Mr Marc Boland, Chief Executive, as he was probably on the ball with this kind of stuff.

Subject: Bitter olives

Dear Marc

I was in one of your shops in Glasgow and I bought a packet of antipasti olives and they were really bitter and I was all like “by Mark’s and Spencer’s unusually high standards, these olives are very poor”. So I thought that you, being Chief Executive, would like to hear about my experience.

When I went back to the office, I wasn’t sure if it was just me being all hyper sensitive because I’m a world class food blogger, so I gave one to my boss, Dave, who’s face contorted into a painful mass of anger, fear, confusion and revulsion. I asked if I could take a picture so you could see just how bitter the olives were but he wouldn’t let me.

Instead I got him to draw a picture of himself being all repulsed by the olive menace:

“I haven’t tasted anything this bitter since Paul Gascoine scored that jammy goal against us at Wembley”

I think this is a very important matter to draw to your attention; as a loyal customer of the salad bar section I admire your impeccable attention to detail and fine taste in dressings (not dresses, oh Mark! haha, lol)

Any feedback in this matter and a refund of the £2 I paid for the item would be great.

Yours sincerely
