One of those days

“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I'm not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you've felt that way.”

Charles Bukowski

  • Fri, 13:52: If they teach lawyers how to negotiate, I think they need to change the format. Brinkmanship is one approach but if the other side doesn't blink, then you'd best have a strategy in place and deep pockets.
  • Fri, 15:08: This 👍
  • Fri, 17:48: Having been up since 4 am it feels like 11 pm right now.
  • Fri, 18:15: Introducing Mrs S and daughter #3 to John Wick and The Equalizer.
  • Fri, 18:16: Off to a Japanese restaurant tomorrow. Their vegan menu is awesome.
  • Sat, 05:00: "This very second has vanished forever, lost in the anonymous mass of the irrevocable. It will never return. I suffer from this, and I do not. Everything is unique—and insignificant." — Emil Cioran
  • Sat, 05:36: Here now
  • Sat, 06:28: Having realised that cat pictures do a lot a better on LinkedIn than any of my writing or shares — which are never random — it's time to take an extended break from the platform, which might result, again, in me pulling the plug.
  • Sat, 11:04: I read job descriptions (which are as much hyperbolic as they are replete with vacuous slogans) and I think good luck finding someone who can tick your million and one boxes. A bit of honesty, openness and a few (we don't always get it right) homes truths wouldn't go amiss.
  • Sat, 11:57: Tired Alfie. Puppy is crashed on the other side of the room. What a life 😘.
