I am, an hour late and being one of only three people who have managed to get into the office out of ten.
I won't be in about 2 minutes. Have fun.
Pint in the Princess Louise at 12?
I just went home
Drink soon yeah? :(
Look at my profile.
I don't plan to stay very long either.
Then where do you sign? (PS: I'm not in work because of the snow.)
I'm the only person here in an office of 10. I've just declared myself King and am taxing the stationery cupboard.
It is now a whiteout out there and I stand limited chance of ever making it home again :(
Should've brought a sleeping bag this morning.
i hope there is a shop of some kind near your place of work to keep you going through the night.
into my bag. I am well set to weather any storm.
but there is almost no snow here. lucky for me.
I have been told to go home at 2pm, so it aint all bad!
only one in my team too. i should actually make use of the quiet and do some seriously needed work, but can't be arsed.
tho I wasn't planning on doing much seeing as it is transfer deadline day.
my book is good though
so im in. It looks so pretty in manchester right now. I cant wait to get some hot soup and hot chocolate for lunch. Snow!
I like how this country basically almost collapses at any kind of unusual weather. We could be these guys... http://tinyurl.com/at5t7k
that makes getting wet socks from walking to work seem much less of a problem!
thanks to the Victoria line being unaffected by 'adverse weather conditions'. Is none of it above ground?
I noticed earlier on the TFL website that the Waterloo and City line was suspended due to these 'adverse weather conditions'. How does that work, it's 100% underground. Seems to be alright now.
and then got to "There is a good service on the Victoria Line".
Waterloo & City is basically a giant drain, so there's a lot of bits that poke out and it freezes quite a bit.
Most people seem to have made it in. I was late. Cleaning the snow off my car was like painting the Forth Bridge.
It's stopped now so I doubt we'll be sent home. Doesn't sound like many people have made it in though. WHO WILL SAVE THE BIRDS??
I R STALWART.
I'm sure a snowdrift is currently blocking the front door and blocking me in though. Lame.
pretty good office turnout due to my boss refusing to take the snow seriously. I'm refusing to do any work regardless because I'm a workshy scumbag.
A colleague who works elsewhere on site has been sent home but my boss is lame.
Football tonight is cancelled though :(
WHY AM I HERE?!
damn my relatively smooth journey into work.
It's like a ghost town here, I'd say about a fifth of the people who should be in today are actually in. I don't have a lot to do, and am hoping my boss calls me to say I can go home. One can only hope...
I have no idea why I bothered
and so far having a bog-standard, run-of-the-mill day. It's just some snow.
I was walking through it on the way to work earlier on and it came to halfway up my shin. It was mental. And I have really long shins!
It barely covers my trainers.
you do have longshins as well.
and looked out over Covent Garden all the way to the Houses of Parliament.
the snow was a foot deep, easily. Amazing scenes.
I am waiting for a bicycle courier.
it was a mission cycling to work today.
'go home' email but have a feeling the go home email people have gone or didn't turn up today.
Woohoo for me. I'm the only person in the bit where I work though there's a few other people about.
my boss hasn't made it in. 1-0 to the lbc.
So I went home
1-0 to me
but he still dont givva FUCK.
every monday for the next 8 weeks. It's my birthday present from my parents.
In all seriousness though, that sounds pretty cool.
Oh, did you watch any of the wire yet? (inane conversation ftw)
Amazing scenes. Photo course cancelled. Drink?
drink sounds nice. Sadly snow has caused parliament's bars to shut so would have to be another locale. Ideas?
There's a nice place opposite the parliamentary bookshop. Or there's a couple dotted around SJP station.
Going in 30 minutes, just attended a really interesting speech by the Chairman of the US Federal Trade Commission so it was kinda worth it.
Dunno why I bothered, it's quietly morphed into Just Another Day.
One guy at my work got knocked off his bike by a car. He's okay but I don't reckon he'll cycle home.
Someone's just told us the weather forecast says this is 'the lull before the storm' and it's going to snow loads in about 3 hours.
But in my living room.
Does that count?
and play in the snow.
can you help me solve a potential dilemma please? i've been offered a cab to liverpool street. should i take it and risk going at 5mph across london or walk to notting hill in the snow (which i liked this morning) and get the central line?
that because it's my turn to do phone cover in the evening for our department, I have to stay until 5.15 while everyone else in the building goes at 4 (except the caretaker and one person in each of the other 3 departments). What's the point keeping the office open for 4 people? The schools are all closing early, nobody is going to phone!! >:(
I'm the only one left, getting a lift at 5 and need to put some things on.
'Go home when you want' said the boss.
I are boss now.
