Diff'rent Strokes

Here are some of my initial observations on village working life:

1. You will never find the book you want, CD you want, magazine you want, or even the brand of gum you want. Anywhere. Ever. All shops sell things you neither want nor need. Unless you want ornate cherub candelabra, or garden furniture for toddlers.

2. You will be forced to eat lunch at the same place every day. Unless you want to have lunch at your desk. No thanks.

3. Short people with long legs just look plain wrong. Poor bastards.

4. Irony and cynicism are alien concepts. Use sparingly to avoid an outbreak of furrowed brows and tilted heads.

5. Tie - Neckwear consisting of a long narrow piece of material worn (mostly by men) under a collar and tied in a knot at the front. This item of clothing has absolutely no practical application or utilitarian purpose whatsoever.

6. Silence is not necessarilly golden.
