Things I have learned from Roz

Aaahh, how nice, a comment from my old friend Roz! We haven’t seen each other since last summer (tsk tsk) which is a shame because it is due to Roz that I know the following:

I look really hilarious in Rowing trousers.
The Irish really do love mince and tatties.
MSN messenger works best when you sit 1 metre away from each other all day but have private things to discuss.
Browsing on ESPC is an acceptable way to spend 4 hours a day.
Having frilly pink knickers is ok, even when you are 29.
Using fences on the CAD trim and extend command is much better than the way I used to do it. (I still think the stretch command rules though)
It’s ok to bitch about your job when you have to spend 6 weeks designing a piggery, followed by 4 months designing on a toilet block for a camp site. Then having to re-design it to make it cheaper. Twice.
Living round the corner from a needle exchange is not as scary as I first thought.
Irish people have 2 passports.
It is possible to attach a wing mirror to a mini using gaffer tape.

And many more such vital things fundamental to my life.

I should probably qualify that by saying Northern Irish people have 2 passports.

They have a British passport and also an Irish passport because Southern Ireland considers all of Ireland as one country.

Or something like that.

Not to be pedantic or anything (!) but Southern Ireland really only encompasses Waterford/Wexford/Cork/Kerry (i.e. the Southern counties). It is not a political term, but in Great Britain, it continually appears to be used as such by all newspapers/news readers etc. (so all British people can therefore be excused from thinking it is a legitimate term). However, to designate Ireland as a nation, I think the Republic of Ireland is what should be used. And people from the Republic of Ireland only have one passport but they can vote in England in all elections ... isn't that strange?
