How did you get on with that? And what do you mean box ticking?
Very good performance. Top 10% in the building.

You will know all about it when you start working. HR departments love making people jump through hoops so they can justify their own jobs.

Cool I suppose working in HR must be a very boring job so they need something to do

True, they are always coming up with more and more innovative ways of pissing us off

Everything's fine apart from the lecturer situation. That's still going on. One girl heard the rumour and she was relieved when I told her that I would rather eat live bees washed down with sulphuric acid than sleep with the lecturer I hope the rumour dies down soon. I have the lecturer in question for Equity this evening and I hope she doesn't find out someone was spreading a rumour about me and her How's the new iPad?

I doubt she'd take much notice even if she did hear something. If she does say anything to you, just explain the situation. You're not in the wrong here and have nothing to worry about!

Didn't get home until 3:40 this morning, so I'm practically a Zombie at work today and I'm here until around 7pm tonight.

iPad's working well at the moment. The battery life is much better on it than my old one. I took it out DJing last night and it did well. Sound quality is better too I noticed.

Hi Mimi How are you today? Haven't heard from you this week, hows radio going?

Well if she did hear something she'd probably wonder what they were thinking making up silly rumours. She probably knows herself that nothing will happen between me and her. I have a lecture with her this evening and if she says anything to me then I'm gonna tell her that the whole thing is a load of nonsense and it's not true. I'll leave out the bit about the live bees

Did you have fun DJing with the new iPad? Do you play in clubs? Of course the battery life would be better, it's a new iPad after all

Doubt she will - she's not going to randomly blurt it out during a lecture is she? I don't know if she has a sense of humour or not?

Yes it was nice. I had to put it away and revert to old fashioned CD's halfway through as I get worried someone will spill drink all over it. It would just be my luck for that to happen.
I DJ at Cardiff Uni's students Union on a Wednesday evening. Had about 1,500 students in last night. Was a good night. Mainly played a mix of Rock, Cheese and Party anthems.

I don't think she will! She's not that type. She might ask me privately though. I'm not sure either, she's not one to make jokes about things during lectures but I've talked to her in her office and she seemed to show it a bit more then as she was chatting to me a bit as well. Nothing happened in there though and just as well She comes across as strict in lectures but she isn't really.

Glad you had fun with it You can't trust anyone with drink and tech If someone spilled drink over it you'd have to go back down the Apple Store to get another new one! Did going to the Apple store convince you to switch to Mac or are you happy with Windows?

The rumours will die down, I'm sure.

I'm not bad thanks. It's raining really hard today in the South East (England). I was driving in it earlier, not fun! I think that it has got worse since I got home though.

I'm just sat with my laptop listening to music with a cup of tea. Dinner is cooking. It smells lovely, I can't wait to eat it We have beef stew. Proper winter food.

I bet you're tired! I can't sleep during the day so I'd probably stay up as best I could until around 7ish.

I haven't been at the radio station this week, they're still having some work done. It's based at a holiday park so they are getting it ready for opening again.

You on at the usual time today?

I hope so. I'm sick of it. I have a lecture with her at 6 and I'm dreading it, but I'll come on here during the lecture so it mightn't be so bad Hopefully she won't notice! It's raining here in Ireland too but it's not as heavy. Sounds fun I'm in a lecture at the moment and then I'll need to go to the library for an hour or two before my lecture to finish my research stuff. Riveting

If it keeps going on, speak to somebody about it (your lecturer or somebody else who works at uni). It's a very serious rumour and it needs to be stopped. You'll be able to find out later on whether or not the lecturer in question is aware of the situation.

I might have to, but I'm gonna give it a few days and see if the whole thing dies down. In some ways it would be better if she wasn't aware as it could ruin her career and she might get sacked. I don't want that If it keeps going on then I might try and do something.

Yeah I will be very annoyed then. I don't think the warranty will cover beer spillage somehow, so it's best to abit old fashioned and use CD's. If one of them breaks I won't be crying as much.

I may go over to the Mac side one day......won't be for a while though, probably when this laptop stops working or starts playing up, not to mention I can't afford it at the moment. I'm trying to save .

Of course Hopefully it'll just die down.

I'm not too bad actually. I seem to have more energy today than I did this time yesterday. I got up about 10am today and got into work at about 11am this morning. I've been busy designing a power point presentation about the station to present a local charity group tomorrow morning, as well as answering phone calls all day.

Yes I'm on as per usual today. Just nipped down to the shop to stock up on snacks to keep me going.

What's being done to your studio's then? They're not taking your mixer away are they?
