Rat: Chapter 30

I don’t need to switch on my PC to know that the absolute bare minimum required has been done with my work. My desk has already cast me adrift by burying me in three weeks worth of paperwork. I wouldn’t even mind so much if it was left for me to be filed as opposed […]

The pub looks great since the last time I saw it although it wasn’t open to the public then. The various pictures and knick-knacks make the place look authentic although the pog ma hoan sign makes me cringe.

Walking down the quays the ice cold breeze cuts me in half, although I’m grateful as it wakes me right up. This is the first time in weeks that I’ll be in before nine and I didn’t sleep a wink last night in anticipation. The day hasn’t even begun and I already feel drained. When […]

Rat: Chapter 8

The weekend sneaks by like a thief in the night and before I have a chance to digress, digest, and churn out a politically correct serving, I’m already discussing fictional plans for the upcoming weekend with some social misfit from the legal department. He may or may not be Ross but judging by his fluffy […]
