Today I meandered over to the Guildhall, where the Cambridge University Engineering Society today hosted its Annual Careers Fair. An assortment of companies were present, including the likely suspects of BP, Shell & Rolls Royce, as well as others like British Sugar, who apparently don't just do sugar but also tomatoes, and various others who, as is the case with most of these corporate events, are only interesting for the freebies.
My shopping bag today consisted of:
2x highlighter - Faber Maunsell | Aecom, Shell
3x biro pens - Faber Maunsell (again), ARM, British Sugar
1x blue plastic 'Frisbee'/non-aligned flying disk toy you play Ultimate with - Sentec
1x orange foam boomerang - Tandberg. I've given this a try and for the most part it just flies in a vague forward arc with little suggestion of a return path. Might need more space.
1x stress ball in the form of a ripe red tomato - British Sugar
1x blue squidgy foam armchair for the resting of mobile phones - ARM [geddit?]
1x hand-crank dynamo-powered emergency mobile phone charger/torch - ARM. Bearing the cunning text of "ARM-powered". I c wut u did thar.
I also gave this item a trial run, and the torch element wouldn't be something I'd immediately leap for in a crisis. Takes a good deal of gyrating to get a current going, and the bulb promptly cuts out when the crank stops turning. Needs a capacitor mode I reckon.
So anyways I take a trip to Faber Maunsell out of common interest and see the crazy text:
// or for those that have scripting disabled.
But yeh, // for the win really.
Those concerned about yesterday's musings reading "2nd post in a week" and seeing it paralleled with one listed for 12 days beforehand: here's an explanation. That post was initially drafted a few days after seeing QoS, but it wasn't until last Friday, 14th November, that I finished it off and posted it. Curse ye Blogger and your definition of 'post date'. Those who are seriously pedantic can have the "two posts that went from start to finish in a seven-day timespan" now I suppose.
