This Week at Work

The week started badly. I got "told off" (by a Hungarian... yeah as if getting 'told-off' at aged 38 was not enough, it came from a foreigner) for using a red pen to feedback to students. Apparently it upsets them. Frankly I think they’ll be a little more upset when they read that the ink says “ 26%!”(MISSING)

Someone’s actually researched that. Yep, red pen makes students feel bad. Well, crap writing makes me want to shit on the carpet - research that. So, after two straight days of reading the ramblings of the grammatically inept it was time for a break.

Wednesday - Day Off

Having done nothing on "The Duke" since blinging the alloys last April I figured its about time I got my act together to start "the conversion." Phase 1 was to get a couple of windows in the back so that when I eventually get some passengers in the back, they don't throw-up all over my puke coloured carpet.

So, I contacted my V-dub man "Dave Lowe" to check out the scoop on getting windows fitted. Following his advice I picked up a couple of T4 windows cheap on ebay. At £55+delivery a shot, I figured what's the point in getting the standard windows, when the snoop dog, limo tinted versions are only £30 more. I think you'll agree - money (drugs money) well spent!

Next month - Phase 2: The swivel seat. Until then...
