lights off...nobody home

Today was quite interesting, having gotten to work and had our team brief we managed to get as far as starting up the TVs before we had a huge power cut! Top stuff! Plunged into blackness we shunted out the customers who only seconds earlier had walked in, to discover half of the shopping centre had no power (shopping center = mall for any Americans reading). It was beautiful not to have to do anything apart from turn customers away smiley icon: wink It turned out an electricity sub station had developed a ‘major fault’ and it took until 12:30 to get power back up. It took until about 12:45 for the shop next to ours to open again because half of the staff had gone to the pub! :lol
Other than that today has been rather boring. Windy and boring. Meh.

The other day i re-visited colour-quiz and discovered it’s as accurate today as it was a few years ago. Check it out and see what you get as a result, mine was (i think) pretty spot on:

The existing situation is disagreeable. Has an unsatisfied need to ally himself with others whose standards are as high as his own, and to stand out from the rank and file. His control of his sensual instincts restricts his ability to give himself, but the resulting isolation leads to the urge to surrender and allow himself to merge with another. This disturbs him, as such instincts are regarded as weaknesses to be overcome; he feels that only by continued self-restraint can he hope to maintain his attitude of individual superiority. Wants to be loved or admired for himself alone; needs attention, recognition, and the esteem of others.
Circumstances are forcing him to compromise, to restrain his demands and hopes, and to forgo for the time being some of the things he wants.
Trying to calm down and unwind after a period of over-agitation which has left him listless and devoid of energy. In need of peace and quiet; becomes irritable if this is denied him
Needs to feel identified with someone or something and wishes to win support by his charm and amiability. Sentimental and yearns for a romantic tenderness.
Has a fear that he might be prevented from achieving the things he wants. This leads him to employ great personal charm in his dealings with others, hoping that this will make it easier for him to reach his objectives.

Other than that i can’t say there’s much that’s gone on. Mike, Chris and myself went the pub the other night which turned out to be better than expected. smiley icon: smile
As for the website: I’m hoping to get the galleries up in a few days. I’ve already got the diary photo section 95% complete and the rest of the gallery content should follow resonably quickly. I may even get the diary photo’s completed tonight, depending upon what’s going on. It being a Sunday it’s likely i’ll stay in after tea, but to be honest i feel like a pub outing. Or at least an outing.
