PostSubject: To Various...   Mon Jun 18, 2007 7:14 pm

I've said many times that when I read what my little mate Various (Jaya to some) writes on here... I sometimes have the picture in my head that she just starts smacking the shit out of her keyboard.

I'm not sure many people know exactly what I mean by this... but now, I have finally found the perfect way of describing it.

Here:



As always, this is meant with much love and light fascination.

Look forward to hearing from you V-man. I hope you don't stop talking to me again. Because I'm almost certain this will have made you laugh.

Obviously a cheers

Lol your right FYEO is a very nice joint only ever been in twice both times absolutely hammered. Me and a friend ended up in their on the May bank holiday Monday, we only went in for more drinks (honest) because all the other places were closing early but ended up parting with large quantities of cash. We then hit the casino and, yes u guessed it parted with even more cash. Did u see a strange looking place over the road from FYEO with blacked out windows and huge suited bouncers called Wiggle? From what I have heard itís a lap dancing restaurant but no one I know has had the guts to actually check it out yet, its kinda shrouded in mystery. Itís also used to be a registry office, pretty ironic!

The place with Disco inferno in is Elements, good place when itís full, what was it like when you were in there? Next time your down there you should check out a place called Censo and The Old Fire Station especially on Fridays. In fact Bournemouth is like 1hr 30 mins from Reading and if you book early you get a train for £12, we should all take a trip down one Friday after work, I know a club the closes at 6 in the morning so we could train down, get wrecked (good 12hr bender) train back to reading and still be home in time to watch Soccer AM, result! cheers (Had to use it at least once)

Fucking DOWN mate!!!

I enjoyed it, but it would have been better with a couple of pros.

I saw Wiggle, and it made me laugh my fucking arse off for like 3 minutes. A lap dancing restaurant you say?

I'm not sure I could eat a steak while that's going on... I get self conscious when I eat.

Fantastic use of cheers by the way buddy.

Elements was ok... reminded me a lot of Route 66 down by me. A bit of cheese.

Didn't see a casino though... for the best I think.

So it seems my little buddy is in a bit of a fix, and I'd like to dedicate this little section to helping her out of her jam, especially since she feels this is 'her thread'. Which is cool. And should in theory be done for any of our guys in the Top6 until situation is resolved.

So with that:

1. Its a bitch that you had to go up against your friend. Not cool.

2. I think I want to hear the story about how you reacted. Because I just, love, the drama.

3. In the grand scheme of things, I think its fate's way of saying you were the best one for the job.

4. I think I've still got my emails about first day things. I'll send them over if you want (assuming they aren't person specific. I seemed to have received everything early on).

5. Serious replies aren't as fun as unSerious replies.

6. You probably should have done something before I threw in my two cents.

7. I've lost my track of thought entirely.

8. .......

9. Ok, so if it were me, I would find someone at HP to talk to in person, but I don't know what numbers you've received already. The hotline is always a safe bet.

10. Honestly, I just wanted to cover as many threads as I could to tie up any loose ends since I've been away. The other guys have definitely given you good advice. I just like to join in Very Happy and I'm feeling typey.

11. cheers

I don't know if any of that helped. But at the end of the day.... I think we all feel better about ourselves. I also hope this at least appears to some as though it was an attempt to help and not just to satify my chatty buzz.

Because I wanted to help. No shit. I could have just covered gambling and strippers again, but I thought you guys deserved better.

It is ACTUALLY EXACTLY an hour behind, yeah.

I doubt you're older than me though... most of these guys are straight out of college. That's not to be rude.

And that kid thing is just another way of me saying buddy or pal nowadays.

I think its got a ring to it. Its not as patronising in person.

Bollocks.

Well I don't need anyone else to have a conversation. That's what happens when you're cool.

<sigh> So how you doing Toniy bud?

Yeah not too bad fella, how bout yourself?

Yeah pretty good. Enjoy the weekend?

Superb mate actually. Went up to Wales, saw my buddy from up there, it was his 21st. He owes me £300. Well £250 technically now because I got pissed and said I'd knock £50 off.

Oh yeah? Bet you regretted that didn't you?

Little bit, but then again, he was off his trolley too, so I doubt he'll remember.

Well he did because he spoke to you about it today.

Alright, don't get pissy about it.

I'm not getting pissy, I'm just pointing out the obvious.

Well fair enough, but come on guy, there's a time and a place.

Are you just typing words now? I mean that last thing didn't need to be said at all did it? It had no frame of reference, it didn't add anything to the conversation, you were just saying words.

Alright, ease up.

You done?

Yeah I'm done. See you next time bud.

Yeah take care pal. All the best.

Love you man.

Love you too pal. Seeya

cheers

I saw that coming.

It was a calculated risk (or miscalculated in this case) that I'd be able to have my fun here, then not have to own up to anything until tomorrow morning.

But then you came along buddy. Which is pretty cool. I'm just wondering whether this pseudo real time conversation is gonna take off again, or we'll both manage just to chill and go to bed. Good idea in my book.

Night in advance fella cheers

Deadliest catch?

You remember the first deadliest things? Like... deadliest police chases / stunts / gun shootings etc. And they were GOOD?

Like the top 20 TV moments, when that wasn't on just every sunday evening with Harry FUCKING Hill. I hate that prick.

Yeah in fairness, most of my posts have been at about 4. Pretty certain I've made mention of that before.

I'm not being nearly as much of a grammar nazi now either. Look how much quicker things get done...

He does look like a porcelain lady boy in my opinion. Now where did I hear that?

And why am I so decidedly calm considering you just stole the 1000th view from me?

Its no bother, I don't think any less of you buddy, at all. I find the whole thing just... funny as you like to be honest. It was the last thing in the world that I was expecting.

Just got this email, as I am sure most of us did, but since Various hasnt been getting them I thought I would post it............


Hello All,

Your First Day

For most of you your start date is the 3rd July, so I would like to confirm the arrangements for your first day. Unless you are notified otherwise, you should arrive at the main reception of the office where your placement is based (according to your contract) at 10am and ask for your Manager or Current Intern. If you are based in the Bracknell office, you should ask for me Ė Ali Standfast. If you have any queries regarding your location / start date etc please donít hesitate to contact me.

If you need a map on how to get to your HP office please use this URL: http://welcome.hp.com/country/uk/en/contact/office_locs.html

If you are arriving by car you will need to inform security at the main barrier that you are a new starter. They will advise you where to park.

If you are based in the Bracknell office I will provide you with the forms to enable you to obtain a car park and security pass for the Bracknell office. During your first day we will have a time allocated for you to meet with security to arrange this. For other locations your Manager / Current Intern will organise your security passes.

On your first day you should dress smartly (suit or similar), however HP has a smart but informal dress code and your role will dictate your usual dress.

Induction Event

Each year we hold an induction event for new interns to give you an insight into HP and give you an opportunity to meet other interns. The induction event for 2007 will be held at the Bristol Office on July 11th. More information will be provided once you have joined HP.

I look forward to meeting you all next week.

Kind Regards

Ali
