There's nothing to do. Well, that's not strictly true, I've volunteered to do the convention listing stuff for [livejournal.com profile] the_magician. But there's no sense of urgency to that. For some reason there's hardly anyone in the office. Maybe they've decided to spend their resource-pool time on holiday but I don't really have enough holiday spare to do that - and it would be a waste of days off anyway.

I spent some days at new year, some on Corflu, some on moving and that leaves me enough for recovery time after Novacon and 2 weeks in America in July. Oh, and the days between Christmas and New Year. I've got it all marked up on a mini calendar and my calculations say that leaves 2 days unaccounted for. And I can always drop the December days if necessary. So it's tempting to just change my plans and jet off somewhere but I'm not the sort of person who does that. And I'd only regret wasting the days later.

And where the hell would I jet off to, anyway?

I just ran out of work. And the beaurocracy around here means it will probably be tomorrow before they can add some more to my queue of things to do. But that doesn't stop them requesting - not quite requiring, but trying really hard to convince me - that I should work on Saturday to ensure this project meets its deadline. If the house purchase goes through on Friday then they've got no hope. But that's not likely to happen. In which case I'm happy to come in and get paid overtime for what will probably amount to very little work.

Doesn't solve my current dilemma, though. What am I going to do for the next three hours?

And to top it all I've broken my mp3 player/radio. I thought it was the earphones that were failing. The sound from the left was crackling and dropping out. I replaced the earphones and nothing changed. So I fiddled with the jack socket - tried to get the clampy bits to clamp harder by bending them inwards. I had to spend �2 on a whole box of safety pins just to get one pin to use for this. And it failed. Now the sound crackles and drops out on BOTH ears. Damnit!

Meanwhile, my brother's birthday approaches. He's a mechanic and sometime clubber, about to be 26. Any ideas what I should get him? My current favourite potential birthday present is this blowtorch but I'm not sure he won't burn down a house with it or something. And I lied when I said it was the current favourite potential birthday present. It's actually the ONLY current potential birthday present. Suggestions solicited.
