not sure i'll be signing up for this - i'm being VERY careful with commitments i make because spoons are unpredictable - but it's interesting as always! nominations are currently open. i'm gonna hold on for a bit before nominating my faves, because i have a LOT of faves and not enough nomination spots and if other people have some of the same faves as me then i have more spots for other more obscure faves?

I've done most of the website alterations that I wanted and added all the artwork that's backed up over the last three years. I still have a few minor tweaks to do, but those aren't urgent, so I'll get to them as and when I feel like it!

Anyway, if you want to go poke about, feel free to!

The interview for the awesome job -

was this morning.

"The" interview (as opposed to the thousands of others I've had in the last six months, I guess) went well. But that's no guarantee, you know? There are seven other candidates - they did four yesterday and they'll have four next Tuesday, so the absolute soonest they'd have an answer is Tuesday night. I was first, 8:30-10:00 AM, and then I cooled my heels for an hour and worked 11-4 same as usual.

During the course of a workday, I might be at several different posts: I could be in the Welcome area, I could be upstairs at Adult reference, maybe I'm orbiting somewhere out on the floor, maybe I'm on the phones, which are tucked away in an admin area that may or may not have people near. It's where the staff conference room is, which is where I had my interview.

So in the afternoon I'm in the Welcome area, and a woman comes in, looking around. I ask if I can assist her and she says she's just looking around. I see her again later and she says she has an appointment with ____, and I realize, what ho, a rival.

Don't worry, I didn't scare her off. )

You couldn't make it up

Well, you could make it up, but who'd believe you?!

I was watching a show that goes behind the scenes at Paddington Station in London. On the 19th June, one of the hottest days of this year, they were having to slow trains down due to hot tracks that were threatening to buckle. Well, that's understandable. I mean, it's hard to make a track that copes with all extreme weather, after all.

But then, at West Ealing - where most or all trains in/out of London apparently go through - a poor pigeon somehow managed to earth an overhead wire, which sent the current into the steel beams in the reinforced concrete of the bridge above the wire. This resulted in concrete falling onto the track, and the track being closed for somewhere around two hours, whilst they checked if the bridge was safe or not. Fortunately, trains could go through it again, but only at 20mph. It's estimated that the bridge being closed caused 5,193 minutes of delay for passengers, and had a knock on effect for stations as far away as Southampton, Portsmouth, York, Bristol and even as far as Edinburgh!

I mean, of all the things to happen, this has to be amongst the most bizarre reasons for delays, hasn't it?!

I'm afraid the pigeon did not survive :(
