and chill... @ 15:11

So until Friday afternoon, had someone suggested that we "watch Netflix and chill" I would have expected to veg out in front of a TV and watch (a poor selection of) streamed movies. Perhaps we would have some popcorn or other such nommies.

Turns out I couldn't be wronger if I tried.

Filling the dishwasher and turning out the light.

All those offers I turned down because Netflix's selection of films is a bit shit.

Ah well.

This kind of thing makes me wonder what other things I've missed out on because I haven't the cultural knowledge to understand the situation. Perhaps when I was asked if I wanted to take tea with the parson or when I was invited to share information regarding my father's wellbeing something untoward was about to occur.

Warming my tea up in the microwave and waiting 30 seconds.

In toilet news, I learnt that sitting on toilet seats is not advisable. I've lived my whole life with the opinion that sitting on toilet seat lids is an acceptable thing to do. Turns out, with explosive force, that sitting on toilet seat lids is a risk to life and limb. I look forward to "Sitting on the toilet seat lid may result in serious injury" labels next to the "Sanitised for your protection" label.

Vacuuming the carpet and dusting.

In work news, I had to conduct some interviews last week for a new role in the company. One of the candidates came out as being gay to me. Which was nice for them. Not sure it's a tactic I'd use when in a job interview.

Identifying a suitable candidate and inviting back to second interview

I knelt on one of the toilet seats here, and it seemed to explode, sending jagged fragments of plastic all over the place. I also thought they were made of tougher stuff.

I only learned the "Netflix and chill" thing recently myself, not being on the market in some time.

I also told Zoe I had a similar thing happen, re. toilet seat lid. I am not a large person but apparently incredibly dense (in more ways than one). I think I saw the toothpaste inch towards me just now, drawn by my gravitational pull.

Stegzy is a larger person, however not so large that the average loo seat should quake in fear and explode

How did he come out? Was it a spectacular explosion from the closet, or was it more along the lines of a casual mention of his homelife?

She came out slightly explosively. She started by being vague about her home life then gave up and just admitted with a tinge of embarrassment. I said to her that it wasn't something that really mattered and we then joked about how in my experience its some of the vehemently homophobic aspects of society that are really just in turmoil with their own sexuality.

Let's ask the NHL what it means
