Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidaaaaaaaaayyyyy! Today's pubfact is a quote by Bill Gates: "I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job because he will find an easy way to do it." (Surely Gates should have hired me then) Bar is open!
OK one quick drink. Why does this bar open, when I have to leave for the office? See you tonight! PJ
Bill Gates is a very wise man indeed! I'll have a glass of red please.
Bill should of learnt that you need a woman to complete a difficult task more efficiently...men always try to make stuff too complicated.... I'll have a cup iof black tea please
hmmmmmmmmm, Sorting out all the confusing paperwork that only accountants (Rex) understand is a mammoth job for little old me,I have been sitting down so does that make me lazy? haha,it will take me weeks to finish it but I really don't mind. I would like to have a glass of your best red wine please. Good to take some time out and relax in the Friday VT pub again. Cheers Dorrise xx
Thanks for reminding me Daarth. I am sitting here in Starbucks in Kuala Lumpur wasting my time with coffee right now. Better get to the german beer bar at the Pavillion where vt member borneogrrl is coming in 45 minutes for a beer with me before tonights vt meet.
Whew I am really working hard right now ;-) I would have been the perfect Bill Gates employee... A cappuccino would do it for me right now, please..
so was Bill Gates a lazy person, finding an easy way to accomplish what he has done!!!
Hard working people are those who can not figure out how to get thigs done easy :)
Claus I know! I was being ironical as I am writing here instead LOL
Hello all, a virtual pint of Strongbow to accompany the real-life one I am indulging in. I cannot believe I survived six months without a single cider. Claus, I hate you! Have a good meet mate.
Cheeeeeeers all *waves at Dorrise and Kirsty* I'll have a cup of tea please. Daarth, I used that line once and it got me a really good job. I think I said something like *I don't mind working hard, but I'm so lazy,I like to work smart. No point in wasting time if you can finish up and go home early.*
great line by the great Gates... well me I still looking a computer in the office, and trying for the day to go quicker so can grab some chow and beers on way home. Rainy windy sun out and in here so it will be nice to find me a place to be lazy on a chair with a cold one lol!
I'll help Dorrise finish off the bottle of your best red if I may and then probably fall asleep in my chair. Cheers all Heidi :)
And I'll have a Cardinal - isn't that a Swiss beer? - in honour of Roger's tremendous semi-final win at Wimbledon this afternoon.
"the bottle of your best red" I had a couple of glasses of a "not the best red" last night on top of my usual consumption and am paying the price now.
Buying cheap wine is seldom a good idea. Okay for a backyard barbecue, perhaps, if you have only a couple of glasses, but as a rule good wine not only tastes better but has less of an effect. Of course, that may be because people drink less if it costs more!!
we call a cardinal , red wine and cassis or blackcurrant liquor kir, aligote white wine and cassis kir royal ,champagne and cassis all after Daniel Kir, major of Dijon. the kir anecdote of the day going home finally, cant wait for my kirs
Sorry, not much time for the VT pub today. Busy with work and now have to jump on the train to EDI for a business networking event at 6. The event is in a pub, so no need to feel sorry for me. May not even take my business cards. All I really need are beer tokens & train tickets.
I didn't buy it, a friend had it in the house and I just sort of fell into a couple of glasses of it.
A cold refreshment please. It's sticky warm weather here in Holland. Why did Bill Gates invented windows? I cannot see through those! PJ
I want to know how he heard my mother say that back in the late 70's????
