Wow... I can hear none of my colleagues talking on the phone in the office while using my AirPods Pro—this is a revelation.

A short time ago, my boss (who is a woman) walked into the space where I and my (all) female colleagues work, exclaiming, ‘Hey guys, quick question!’. I turned and responded with a greeting, to which she responded, ‘Oh, not you...’. It’s interesting how the word ‘guys’— once purely masculine—is becoming a broader term and in this case, it only referred to the women present. Changing language in action! 🙂

Check out the latest episode of my show , titled: ‘It’s Complicated’. This week I discuss how (and clocks in general) affect our behaviour and our perception of time.

I had an involved discussion with two colleagues earlier today who wouldn’t believe me that Queanbeyan is in New South Wales and *not* a part of Canberra within the Australian Capital Territory. For anyone else who refuses to accept this, please see the attached screenshot from Apple Maps.

Mondays at work are always a battle with colleagues over the last millilitres of milk in the office fridge, before the supply is replenished. Missing out can ruin your plans for an afternoon coffee.

Whilst my intention has been to keep things simpler these days with fewer accounts, I couldn’t resist giving Mastodon a proper try. Let’s see how things go!
