Welcome...to my Shed!
(from yesterday's sublime to today's ridiculous)


there's an old adage that states "always take a shit on company time" and that's as true now as it was 100 years ago. Of course, with the advent of mobile device technology, one no longer needs to stare at the back of the (flimsy) door, scrawl offensive statements about ones boss and/or try and levitate a lone sheet of paper off the floor with the power of one's befuddled mind; instead one can check emails (but that's kind-of 'working'), read the news or play games. I am reluctant to conduct verbal business (while I'm conducting other business) as the echo-ing nature of most water closets is a dead giveaway, so 'games' it is!

Popular (or should that be 'plop-ular'?) diversions in the Boydellian hand include:
- Take it Easy! (highest score: 247)
- Monument Valley (much re-completed)
- Rush Hour (well in to the EXPERT levels now) and, occasionally (when a longer stay is required),
- Le Havre.

I've toyed with the idea of taking physically-real, solo variant games in to The Porcelain Sanctum eg. Shephy, Lux Aeterna or Scythe, but the state of many cubicle floors is quite deplorable within 10 mins of the office building being declared open of a morning, so 'water damage' (at the very least) should be avoided.


"Who's there?"


"Harry who?"

"Harry up in there, I need to clean it!"

*flushes* (in both senses of the word)
