It's been quite a good week for random this week, so here's my pearls of wisdom...

1. Citroen C3s and C4s have the same sized petrol tank (which is odd, as the C4 is about twice the size of the C3!)




2. I can plug my iPod into my new car, but it won't let me play playlists, only by artist.  Staples has 8GB flash drives @ 2 for £10 though, so I can pop my playlists on them if I want:


3. Food served on a slate may look cool and trendy, but it does make your veggies go cold quicker than a regular plate...


4. If you leave my parents house and travel at 40 mph to Garstang (even if you were in a 50 limit up til then), then at 50 mph up to the motorway, and then 83 mph to Tebay, my father will be able to catch up with you just before you pay for your goods in the farm shop... (which is what happens when you leave your sewing machine behind because it was hidden in a room away from the rest of your pile of luggage.  Not that I would ever do that.  Nor travel at 83 mph on a motorway ;o) )



5. Computers send out odd birthday reminders, designed to confuddle people...



6. Disbelief about your departure from a job increases exponentially the closer you get to the leaving date by those who had missed the news.

  4. Yes totally random - not sure what I learned - except for the size of petrol tanks - and that you had a thoughtful Dad. x

  6. Why have you been eating your dinner off the floor? We have underfloor heating under our tiles, so you can come eat your greens here if you like xxx

  10. Oh my parents live near Preston, though my dad would never go over 65, so he would never catch me!

  11. Oh now I'm embarrassed. As for being a lead foot, I wondered why I was feeling odd - but Katy will tell you I have been odd for years - takes one to know one.
    As for the slate, Katy is right things don't stay hot, but then she never heats her plate. Next time she leaves her sewing machine she should just keep her phone switched on!

  17. Nice bunch of random things. When I would drive home after visiting my dad I'd get home and have a cup of tea before letting him know I was safely home so he wouldn't know I'd been speeding up the highway. Your Dad's a champion!

  18. Great random things! And what a star Dad!! He sounds like he drives like my dad!!
    I might try the flash drives in my car! My iPod wont play at all, although it's probably something I've done!! or not done!

  19. Lots of random stuff there. When I left my last job people were still sending Christmas cards to where I worked with my name on (as well as other team members) for a couple of years after I'd left. Oh and why is it (I keep meaning to ask) that your blog takes longer than any other I read to load?

  20. You do random so well! I can't believe how thoughtful some people's dads are. Mine would have waited until I got home and then would have had my mom call to tell me about the machine.

  21. Your dad is the coolest, and clearly a great driver too. I hope you are enjoying your end of job party too.
