Exam

22 10 2009

Is this all I ever blog about?

My big exam is tomorrow, from 9am to 5pm.

Currently thinking about “business contextualisation” and “knowing the answer before you do the analysis”…

Really hoping and praying that this is the last exam!





What the?

Super-fantastic-happy prize for whoever can guess what the girl in the pink top is doing…

Also a prize for the most creative wrong answer.

Procrastination

17 10 2009

Funny that a post about procrastination can be procrastination in itself…

I am on study leave from work at the moment and with all the extra time on my hands, I have managed to:

  • Clean and re-organise the kitchen cupboards
  • Clean the manky grease out of the rangehood
  • Plant basil and tomatoes
  • Clean the balcony
  • Hang a picture on the wall
  • Pay all outstanding bills and complete about 3 months worth of filing and general organising
  • Look into mine and Adri’s superannuation and
  • Buy two presents for people (Dad and Tim)

Now, I should really do some study. It’s not that I haven’t done any yet, but it’s amazing how much more appealing household chores become when study is the alternative.

Time to hit some past case studies.





Mobile sites

16 10 2009

I like to use my iPhone on the bus to work to surf the internet. I look at blogs, email, facebook and the odd news website.

Some websites, even some blogs, have mobile phone versions so that the content is a little better suited to your tiny mobile screen. But my experience of mobile sites has been pretty ordinary. The mobile version of smh.com.au is terrible. It looks like it only picks up the most popular stories, which are often pretty ordinary.

Does anyone know of some good websites, news or otherwise, that have good mobile versions?





Doing what you think is right won’t make you popular

Exhibit A – Harry Connick Jr cancels shopping centre appearance because of concerns for safety.
Exhibit B – Catholic chemist “outrageous” for not selling pill

But who wants to be popular anyway?

I want to be a God-pleaser rather than a people-pleaser.





We’re back

4 10 2009

Back from holidays and back into the swing or regular life. We flew in on Monday morning 21st September from Hong Kong and we were back to work on Tuesday.

I’m a bit crook – picked up something in Rome and I have been coughing ever since. Have been to the doctor though and I’m all medicated up.

Lots of photos to go through and upload to facebook, but here is a taste…
