Boss, can I get an hour off to get my hair cut?

What?! You want to go to the barer during office hours?!

Well, my hair grows during office hours so . . .

Not all your hair does.

No, sir, but I don’t want to have it all cut off

Upgrading laptops.

I got two laptops (well, some more but that's another story) with 4GB of memory. I wanted an upgrade of that memory, definitely for the more recent one that I want to use for learning/developing Java stuff.
So I got me some 8GB memory sticks.
The ide was to put two of them in the new laptop bringing it to a more then comfortable 16GB and, using the surplus 4GB from that notebook to upgrade the other older one to 8GB.

The prime objective succeeded. The new laptop boots and runs on 16GB. Nice and fast. No surprise there, it got 128GB SSD storage and 1.5GB spinning disk stuffand, with 16GB RAM no need for a swap disk. Just an i3 chip but that's OK.

The other, older box is not a success. I didn't check before upgrading but it didn't have a 4GB module in it, it had 2 sticks of 2GB each. So the best I could go was 6GB. But the 4GB module from the new box is not the same speed as the 2GB sticks so mixing them doesn't work. The BIOS sees 6GB but both Linux and Windows hang during boot-up.
So I put the old sticks back in and I now have a 4GB stick to spare.

Gone see later if that fits and works in one of my brother's notebooks.
Ye never no

Peter and his wife have another quarrel. She curses and insults him at the top of her voice.

An acquaintance that just passes later remarks “I don’t know how you can stay calm like that when she goes on again”

“Oh, but I am used to that, I have been a football referee for years.”

Fast cycle home.
Practically windstill, as in hardly a ripple on the canal. And nicely cool but warm enough to not need gloves of coats. Also known as 13C.
Ideal cycling condition so no wonder I did it in about 40 minutes. For 20Km

After work running.

Doing slower or shorter. My knee is still not 100%, giving serious issues last week after running two rounds at speed. So now I cut down to one round, just 3Km, but keeping the speed up. OK just under 20 minutes is not real fast but I will never run for gold.

Feels OK for the moment.

Anita “How can you stay so calm when your husband is angry raging against you?”

Julia “Oh, I have a good trick to get rid of the frustration. I go clean the toilet.”

Anita “Clean the toilet!? But that doesn’t make sense.”

Julia “Oh but it does, it’s so satisfying to clean using his toothbrush.”

"Waiter!" a customer calls out "there is a fly in my soup!"
"Hush, not so loud." the waiter replies while rushing in. "we won't charge extra."
"What the . . ." the man sputters
"No, really, we won't" the waiter quietly replies, "but please keep it quiet or the other customers want the extra protein as well."

A cyclist arrives at the finish-line well before the rest of the pack.

With people all around cheering and applauding rushing to greet the winner.

“People, people, please” the cyclist fends them off, “you are mistaken”

“How so, you just finished the race first” they insist.

“No, no”, he explains, “I am not the first of this year’s race, I am the last from from last year’s race.”

Saturday afternoon. All the guests are in church for the marriage. The bride is pacing up and down in front of the altar. looking back at the door whether the groom comes in or not. The priest gets nervous as well, he’s got to prepare for a funeral later.
