Blog Job Seeker Hits 1209 | Last Modified 2007-05-16
I'm early, of course, so I sit outside McGill metro on a hard stone wall. After several minutes in the sun I realise that I'm beginning to sweat, a definite no-no at interviews, so move to the shade, where I'm cold.

Blog Badly-designed disabled toilets Hits 1028 | Last Modified 2007-06-22
The only seat left on the train was the one next to the badly-designed disabled toilets. Badly designed? Yes, very. The door opens and closes electronically at a pace that tears at the soul. So you step in side and press the close button. And wait, whilst people stare at you, as the door creaks and creeps shut. Most people at this point get frustrated and foolishly try to press the lock button before the door has fully closed. This is a mistake. If you do this then the door finally closes and then starts to open again. Then you must then wait for it to fully open, and press close again and repeat the process.

Misc Summer Punch Recipe Hits 4068 | Last Modified 2007-06-07
This is a traditional Shropshire Wassail drink that has been adapted for summer-time sipping. Basically we remove all the egg and cream from the thing, don't bother with the 10 baked apples and instead chill it and serve with ice. It's very refreshing in the sun! If you find it too bitter, then add more honey or sugar, likewise, if using sweet cider, then use less.
