Photocopying and J-Pop

Thursday and Friday mornings are up-at-six mornings. I got to work early to do some photocopying, and stumped down two flights of stairs to Security because they hadn't opened the door of the photocopying room.
I had given up on the machine in the post-room, which was churning out blank paper.
By the time I got to the third photocopier that was churning out blank paper, I realised that I had the originals the wrong way up.
What a prat I am. Three quarters of an hour wasted by my own stupidity.
Later, I watched the student's faces as they watched a J-pop video. 
How I wish I had filmed them!
Watch it, and see if you can catch sight of your face in the mirror.

I got a parking ticket on Sunday because I put my ticket the wrong way up. I have appealed but I don't hold out much hope!

One has to ask why you showed them that.

It reminds me too much of that OMG moment when 'Mini-pops' (remember that?) had a group of pre-pubescent girls dressed up as, well, hookers miming to Madonnas 'Like a Virgin'. It regularly appears on 'what were they thinking' type clips shows, and truly was a nadir of television broadcasting. Probably available on youtube

you'll have to settle for some Sheena Easton

plus they were doing exactly that sort of thing about 80 years ago.

I'll shut up now :)

Oh poor Sarah! I hope your appeal works out OK.
I have been fined £250 this year after having my car towed away. My next vehicle will be a horse and cart, with the horse trained to bare its teeth and snarl at traffic wardens!
Wilky- thanks for the tip. I have been watching wall-to-wall minipops ever since
