I started removing the wallpaper from the office room.
It's woodchip.
Shoot me now ::) :'(

(borrowed a steamer from a friend, watched youtube videos, but it will still be crazy hard/annoying)

Hmmm... I never saw Fitz like that. Oh well. Different people, different minds.

Try @Justan Henner short novel only a 1000 pages.
;D

I'll start reading Rotherweird, by Andrew Caldecott. I'd been curious about this one, and found it in the charity shop the other week.

Is that to do with the job you applied? Or is that still a possibility?

Anyway *sends biscuits*

(note: this year I'm attempting to bake some biscuits as a present. Let's see how it goes...)

Haha no it was just my mood. I need to get out of the US for a bit and go someplace where everything's not overpriced and shitty
Come here to Yorkshire: lovely place to relax and cheap-ish :D
(and ignore the UK politics)

I've now started In the Vanishers' Palace, the new self-published book by Aliette de Bodard.
What a lovely lovely book!
If you want different stories from the quest-plot/medieval-society/western-based stories, please read Aliette's books.
This one is a very loose retelling of Beauty & the Beast, where the beast is a dragon (the eastern type one) that transforms into a woman at will.
There's romance and sci-fi and eastern magic and words as magic and changellings and pain and walls that stretch into infinity...

And it's a standalone and short, so a good choice for those who want to take a break from long series :)

Now, what's next? I'd like to finish another book before the end of the year, and I think that I won't read Malazan 4 in 2 weeks, so I might choose another from my TBR pile at home before then starting the year with a couple of Malazan ;D

5s sounds more like they were teaching Lean and that's a 20 minute segment not 8 hours surely?
Never underestimate the power of stretching training stuff ;D

I just got home from a Carols Service and I'm all up and singing :D

Ah, but there are five Ss and six sigma, and they're quite different things, hehe ;D

-Paul Hoffman's Left Hand trilogy --> no, no, no, simply NO, these books are AWFUL!


Hahah what happened?
I heard very good reviews when it came out but now it seems everyone agree that it's 100% bad :P
Maybe in italian they're better written ::)
Honestly, it's very very badly written in the original english, and the story is super confusing and mixes a ton of earth references without making any sense.
Book 1 isn't *that* bad, but the others are firmly in the 'awful' category.

I think the deal she negotiated is the only one possible, the EU would never bend themselves backwards to give the UK everything it wants - the whole thing is a shambles and I'm sick to death of politicians only caring about themselves and their businesses.
This should never have gone to a referendum, it's such a complex situation, no "normal" person understands fully the implications (and I include myself in that group).
The country is being ruined and I feel very sad...

I have to go to an eight hour six-sigma nonsense seminar

Because Quality profit matters

If it's any consolation the analytical tools used in Six Sigma can by applied to pretty much any data set and used for identifying outliers.
Yep, I quite like most of the 6S tools (me = green belt certified)

Me too hahah! Coincidence? I think not.  ;D
If there wasn't an ocean between us, I'd definitely go visit Jmack :D
