Smell

You’ll remember that a couple of weeks ago I had my Big Scary Eye Test.

Because the eye drops they use stop you seeing for a while afterwards, I’d made plans to get through the rest of the day without having to drive: for this reason, Rockin’ Rob gave me a lift home from Hospital Radio that night. The first thing we noticed when we got in his car was that his new air freshener was a bit on the overpowering side: the second thing was that it was a bit unpleasant as well.

Before I got out, back at my house, he gave me the offending smelly and asked me to throw it away for him: I thought I could do better than that and said “I’ll take it to work tomorrow and put it up in the office. Better yet – I’ll HIDE it somewhere in the office and see how long it takes for someone to complain”. Ten days later there was quite an impressive argument between Cheryl – who works at the opposite end of the Portacabin from me – and Jean the Cleaner, based on Cheryl insisting that the new polish Jean was using smells horrible, and Jean insisting that she was using the same polish she’s always used.

I love it when I get to stimulate conversation between workmates ;-)

The other thing I need to show you is this proof that at least some people are getting into the Chrimbo spirit: I took this near Sarah’s the other night – and yes, that’s George in the centre of the picture.

On a technical note – I don’t think that’s bad for handheld on a little camera at night. Mind you, I was leaning against a lamp-post for stability.
