I went to Uni to use the free internet. Productive? Maybe. Fun? HELL YES.

Isn't free internet and money what uni's for?  Huh

To be perfectly honest, that's all I ever use it for...

Boy howdy has uni changed...whar my gen used it for, on both sides of the water, was drinking...  Cheesy

Productive today...hm yep...work related things about which I should share no details, by now there is no need...

I mostly used it for access to nifty equipment and lab space, and to meet interesting people.  Grin

Pretty productive day.

Finished rough shaping and sanding the stock for my new SP rifle and started on the glass work for it.
I am now sketching the silver wire inlay that will be the one single "fancy" part on it. The rest is pure function.

Potted a load of Yucca "pups". Planted the (dead?) Yucca in the garden, just to see if will grow. Doubt it though.

No productivity.  I had the day off and it was raining.  Even so the angels are furious with me...  Wink

Spent every spare moment bar these copying and pasting reports together that I was assured 'the system' would do for me.

Did it?  My arse it did!

Still, on a positive note, put all reports into word docs, and told two fellow teachers they were welcome to use them as templates for their own reports in my subject area.  Big smiles all round from two particularly stressed individuals.  How many karma points do you think that's worth?

Had good intentions of going into town, depositing my paycheck in the bank, going to the car wash, picking up some groceries, and meandering around the thrift store for a bit.

Instead, I took a nap. Undecided

I should be getting ready to go to my friend's place for D&D. Instead, I'm still sitting here in my pajamas. I need to leave in ten minutes. Oh well.

I love my days off.

I went to Rennenger's today- it's a flea/ antiques market- I bought a temporary replacement wedding ring, a few broken watches for the parts, and I found someone wiling to sell me clock gears, she had a few, but evidently another steamy type cleaned her out last week.. Oh well.. she still had some bigger gears to sell...so I bought them!

Is eating a 1/2 bushel of steamed crabs considered being productive?
