Job update

I haven't done an update for a while. Life at the Kelcey/Bazos abode is going well.

I forgot to mention in the last post that the goldfish made it though the ordeal of moving house. It was a close call there for a while but he's going great again. I think he's almost taken the record for the fish that can survive the longest. My deceased big black angel fish holds the record of about 15-16 months (the goldfish he's been going for about 15 months now).

I applied for and accepted a promotion at work. My new title is project manager which is cool because I get to boss everyone around. Well, not everyone, but a few people. I did about 18 months of project management work about 8 years ago now. I decided at the time however that I wanted to focus more on the "hands-on" side of things for a while longer so that I could really sharpen my technical skills. I'm at the point now where I feel like doing something additional to the raw technical stuff again. I'm really enjoying the role. There's a lot of technology involvement still even though I'm not the one actually writing the code. I even changed my ring tone to the vanilla one that you get when you buy a phone so that people know that I'm a manager.

Speaking of ring tones, my manager's ring tone is Master Of Puppets. How did he get such a cool ring tone? My manager has a cooler ring tone than me. I have shame dripping from me.

I've been on a sugar and computer game purge lately. I haven't had any sugar nor played any computer games for a couple of weeks now. It's not that computer games stop me from doing the things that I should be doing, like socializing, house work, eating etc. I just found that it was cutting into the time that I could be using for more constructive pursuits like programming, learning new technologies, trolling hysterical left-wing people on SMH blogs and updating my web-site. We'll see how long it lasts. If I can last until Star Craft 2 or Grand Theft Auto 4 comes out, I'll be doing well. I think I just wanted to prove to myself that I wasn't addicted. Anyway, so far, so good.

I've been going to the gym regularly recently. I have a good weights program and a good cardio program working. I wouldn't say that I was ever fat at any stage. But I could shed a few kilograms. I look back on some old Taekwondo videos and I look a lot a bit thinner than I do now. I always call myself fat boy to keep the shame levels high so I do something about it. I like watching Dr Phil whilst I'm on the tread mill at the gym. He can indoctrinate me about relationships whilst the treadmill indoctrinates my butt.

Good idea. I was thinking a cricket game would be good. When Billy Bowden gave me out I could whip out my +6 warhammer and split his head open.
