and chill...

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
