Use Photobucket now. App is nice. Now, when I go into the Gallery on my phone, right next the the "share" button there's one to immediately upload to Photobucket. Super handy.

A rude awaking this morning at 3AM. The communal central heating system(Made in China ) self destructed in a torrent of hot water and a large cloud of steam. Should be all dried out by this evening.

Then there was a lot of commotion from upstairs.

It's not like domestic central heating in UK, with tiny microbore pipes and slimeline radiators. These are large radiators with 2 inch pipes feeding them, and I think it's pressurised as well.

Just looked back to the first page of the thread and seen this thread was started almost 2 months ago. 2000 posts in around 60 days. Needless to say I need to get out more

Will have to watch that sometime so seen as every film suggested here I've enjoyed.

I love family guy to but I don't watch it as much as id like to. In fact I hadn't watched one for a couple of weeks until I seen your post so I went I watched the first episode I could find. Forgot how stupidly funny that show is.

Can't say that me and my wife have the same taste in film but every now and again our interests overlap. Trying to think of an example. We both liked inception but she didn't fully understand it till I explained so I don't no if that counts.

I'd never heard of A Beautiful Mind, is it worth watching? Mind you all the students are excited, when I told them they will watch Skyfall. Although I had to use Google Translate for the subtitles.

Ah. Well, I've been thinking of going to China myself to brush up on my mandarin (which is practically non-existent), but it's not my most favorite place in the world.

Skyfall is surprisingly good. A Beautiful Mind is good until the ending, lol.

Family Guy, eh? I used to love that show but it's just way over the top now and overly political (which I don't mind per se, but just tired of it).

Our new favorite is Bob's Burgers. I love that show! The family dynamic is really sweet and the kids are hilarious. Plus, Kristin Shaal does the voice of one of the daughters and I love her's. It's so annoying but funny at the same time.

Pretty sure there's a new season on now. They're nearly all on Hulu if you want to catch the older ones.

Well, with what Hulu is now, 5min might get you through the first batch of commercials.

Other problem is AdBlock doesn't work with it.
You'll have to exempt it on there so have plenty of other tabs open to occupy yourself while hearing about some new car or something.

Oh hey, it's also on Netflix if you have a streaming account. (not sure if that's available in the UK)

Crap, I just realized my jury duty is for a MONTH starting next Tuesday.
Trying to read into what it entails (I wasn't selected last time I was called a couple years ago). Looks like it might be something like 3 days a week! Ugh. However, I do know where the closest bar is near the courtroom.

Looking like something about 3 days a week from what I'm reading.
I already gave my boss a heads up when I got this a month ago but I didn't read into it too closely. Can't imagine they'll be happy about this.
Problem too is I feel bad since my chef wanted to take the week of Feb 10th off. I had no problem working that whole week but now it's not possible. Hopefully he's okay with swapping it out.
And, reading more details said it's nearly impossible to get out of it (last one was a robbery case and I said I had been robbed twice, truthfully, and was able to get out of it). Whereas this is much different. You basically hear the beginning of a case and decide whether it's worthy of going to trial. Ugh.

Oh god, reading this comment on a local blog:
Quote:
I was on the RIP (Rapid Indictment Process) jury (I think it was #3 – 3x/week) and we heard about 200 cases. My first time was the sex crimes grand jury (5x/week) and we heard about 100 cases. I wanted to drink myself to sleep every night when I was on the sex crimes jury, as you hear mostly horrible horrible horrible cases involving the total dregs of society. Your jury summons will have the grand jury number listed on it. In the RIP jury you hear mostly drug cases from the weekend/night before.
Knowing what horrible crimes go on in DC, I'm NOT looking forward to this.

Maybe if your lucky you can somehow get out of it. I had jury duty this time last year but it only went on for a week.

It really looks like GJ is nearly impossible to get out of. Honestly, I don't have a big excuse. Will I have to use vaca days? Probably.
And, they take your phone away for the whole day.
May look into getting a temp 4G card from Verizon as it looks like there's a TON of down time.

I don't think so, payroll generally has a special code for jury duty hours so that you still get paid.
