The Minor Details

Last night was Book Club. Good to see the girls again. It was at Loulou's and kinda weird to be visiting my old home. But great fun and a good night was had by all :)

Other than that not much of note happened yesterday. My new job has started much the way they all do ... slowly and quietly. I'm still going to meetings from my previous department till end of March, but I won't actually be doing any work for them, I'll be there in a consultant capacity since I have 2 & half years of knowledge on the product and there are still too many newbs in the team to be making the long term decisions. TheBrad really has his work cut out for him and although I feel dreadful that I've left him in this position, sometimes you just have to do what's right for you at the end of the day.

Although as I said, it's still early days and who can tell yet how this position will go. I'm still getting login details and having the systems explained to me. Not much real work. Oh, and I have yet another team build (this time with the new team) on Friday - woo hoo :)

Oh, and I forgot to mention, I got to drive the MPS on the weekend. Not too shabby but hell it's hard to drive slowly! I forsee a spate of speeding fines in Varen's future! But the thing that would annoy me most is yes, blah blah boy-stuff, you've got the speed and the fast acceleration and the climate control (pretty awesome!) or whatever. But your car doesn't lock it's own doors! And there was something else ridiculously minor that they left out too that's also pretty standard ... unfortunately I just can't remember what it was :P

I think we should change it to Wine Club! Haha!

Hope the new job goes well :-)

@bb - Wow, sounds like you could've been there even ... Or are all book clubs much the same where the empty wine bottles tend to equal the books bought :)
