either would be bad.

In this case though, neither.  It was actually very shipshape.

Nothing much. Was awakened at the bottom of the sleep curve by Mrs T getting up to see to the dogs and I'm still clawing my way up the slope. Think I'll take a stroll while it's still cool.

Puking.  I've never puked so much.  I think it's norovirus.
Never tell me the odds.

And...peace is restored in my guts.  Definitely norovirus due to its rapid course, there's a current outbreak in the west.
Never tell me the odds.

Well, at least the timings work out well - 48 hours quarantine after symptoms leaves you with the weekend to yourself and back to work on Monday...

Sitting with a glass of brew dog IPA having done a turbo session. About to make an omelette.  Just heard I have to go into work tomorrow!

I am about to play some Bach preludes & fugues.

And a couple of inventions.

And a bit of French suite no 5 in G.

I may be some time...

Wondering whether the miniature bottle of absinthe I've had kicking around since about 2000 is ok to drink.

No pathogens would dare grow in that - I'm sure it's fine.

Every so often I eye up the miniature of Hennessey on the top shelf, bought new from the distillery in 1982, and wonder the same thing.

Almost. IIRC it was Dowson who said "Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder".

Trying to decide what to do with my day.  I have to collect a parcel from the parcel depot, I have an online course to finish and then a whole week of leave afterwards.

waiting patiently in my Marseilles hotel room for a BP tanker to turn up in port for me to audit.

I've just recreated that scene in apocalypse now where our hero is resting on the bed waiting for the fray.

Without any real fray of course, and with aircon in my case.
How does one audit a ship. Yep, that's a ship. Ok next job. ;)

Environmental audit, hopefully it's not leaking
Well that should be fairly straightforward then, because in my experience boats with holes in them have a habit of sinking. So if its not sunk, job done. Ok, ok, I know  ::-)
You'd think, wouldn't you?

We once paid for a barge to be craned out for a survey. It was afloat, looked fine in the water (we had been aboard). Bilge pumps weren't running. It didn't even smell damp, just had the usual barge smell of diesel and barge grease.

When it was craned out, there were multiple holes in the hull. Water poured out. About 2.5k in costs down the drain (surveyor fees, crane fees, costs of getting surveyors to Netherlands).
