I had spent a bit of time looking over a figure, taking off a few mould lines, repairing a boot heel where I was a bit enthusiastic with the file, and finally priming. And as soon as she was primed, I saw a glaring mould line right across the face!  :swear:

It's far too awkward to fix, so I just have to chuck the figure in the bin. This would have been my first painted Hasslefree figure as well  :grrr:

It was Maria, the original version. I was annoyed at the time, but well, I have plenty more to paint.

Being the first Hasslefree I tried to paint, I was struck by how fine the detail was.

Kev, that's okay. I didn't need that figure specifically, and there's no need to go to the trouble of replacing it. The lost time was the most annoying thing actually.

Today's things that p you off is quite insignificant but bugged me none the less.  Took pics of a WIP, put them on the computer, deleted them from the camera (made sure it was from the camera), then found out they did not transfer to the computer. :hmmm

Work... Everything is going to cr@p around me (nothing to do with me) but I'm assuming heads will roll soon so I'm just going to keep myself well away from it.

Man, I know that feeling, except that our new Executive Director is single handedly responsible for the demise of a 160 year old organisation. We've lost a third of our staff in the last 6 months to resignations. I've been forced into a job I hate and have gained a whole lot of new responsibilities thanks to staff departures (things I know nothing about) as well as being forced to manage 6 staff and an entire drill core library facility ...on top of my old job. Guess how much extra money I get to go along with my good fortune?  ...yep, you guessed it, not a single cent.

I would have left already, except I need my long service leave for a 3 month holiday next year. If I last that long...  :swear:

That sucks Nosferatu. I'd rant here but it's not something I'd like a hard copy of that could get back to me... however unlikely that would be.

No not one of the FOD companies.They have all been great with sales for me.

 This is something else that is P*** me off.

 It just gets really frustrating when you cant get reply's to messages sent and this has been going on for months now.
Anything we could help you with? Depending on where the item/ items you're waiting for is/are located, maybe someone could pick it/them up and send to you?

Its not just a mobile though, its also the record keeper of my hours working for Andy. Also it is used for recording my fuel stops for my bike. I use it like a personnel organizer as well as a handy device for talking to people.

And to top it off, I went Ice skating today and the skate hire people gave my trainers to someone else.  :tantrum: Now I have someone elses smelly trainers till I can afford to buy some new ones  :crazy:

You can hardly call them mobile phones anymore, since they can do so much else.  Starting to frighten me, they are.

Mobiles aren't bad. Their overuse is.

Now it's the opportunity for Craig to escape from that Apple sect, and buy a honest-to-God android mobile.

You may be right, but I don't want to be contactable all the time... And every day I spend more than an hour on trains. I am constantly afflicted with the inane conversations of idiots, and if they're not talking they're staring at their mobile screens, and their inane interactions on Facebook (or whatever).

I may be an antisocial b@$%!@d, but I'd. Rather. Read. A. Good. Book! (in relative quiet without having to resort to my iPod to get some peace)

And don't get me started on the nuff-nuffs that drive while talking or texting, or walk along talking/texting totally ignoring their surroundings...  :swear:

drive while talking or texting

That's totally illegal here!! :yup: Not to mention fatal.  There was a local church that has a signboard out front that once read "Honk if you love Jesus, Text while driving if you want to meet him."

Oh it's illegal here too, in fact it is illegal to be holding your phone or even have it in you lap while driving. ...doesn't seem to stop the morons though.

The thing with a mobile is to make sure you control it, not vice versa. I use my mobile if I'll be late home, or my plans change, not for idle chatter, to send jokes, to download stuff, or to text. A 10 top-up lasts me, oh, the best part of a year...
