Half way through another week

This week is well under way by now, as Monday came and went with me working hard, leaving to catch an early train which came late, and Viv working hard too, while in the evening Viv left for Toastmasters carrying one of the club awards, and returned with another one of them.
Tuesday looked like it was going to be a quiet night, with both of us home, but it was not to be. Spinnaker needed a judge for their area contests, so after I had dropped the boys off at hockey practice, I drove over the Haywards to Whitby and helped judge their evaluation and humorous contests. The test speaker was speaking about organ donation and the abysmally low rate among New Zealanders. This was a heavy speech, so it was a fair contrast after the break when we heard five fluffy humorous speeches. Kim won with "Everything I know about men I learned from my mum" including the six word "Women are normal; men are aliens". She also explained that only a man could have written "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus", as they are only two planets apart. Her mother is reputed to have written the much more appropriately titled "Women are from Earth, Men are from a galaxy far, far away".
This morning, more of the same. I had Subway for lunch, for the first time in ages. This evening, it was a presentation from the SAS Institute, where we sat in Wellington while a guru in Heidelberg explained to us how SAS can deliver the tools for building reliable credit scorecards quickly and efficiently. That finished in time for me to catch the 8:35 train home. It's now time to catch up on a few bits and pieces before bed.
