In Other News – 4 November 2015

1 min read


I have concluded that meetings are like a vortex for time and productivity. No, seriously, I went into a meeting at 12:30 this afternoon and when I came out, my baby had been born, grown up and married off already. Ban all meetings I tell you, ban this sick filth.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Nothing like giving birth to a baby but not knowing anything about it hey Zoe?

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

      Dude trippy

  • Mark Treloar

        Yip, email sent out notifying that it will change from the 10th of November.

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          I just checked my gmail and saw. No more nasty surprises or having to rip out the calculator when trying to see if a special truly is a special

  • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    If a meeting goes on longer than 45 minutes, I start stacking papers and fiddling with my keys to send not so subtle indications that the Admiral is now unhappy with the length of the PointlessTimeWastingExperience

    • I usually turn of the dimmest light in the room to send the signal across, works is morse code as well.
