Signal boost for the lyrics quiz. Although I suspect the reason there's only three entries is not because people haven't seen it, but for the usual reason that my musical tastes are ridiculous.

Parliament was sat one night,
With rebels on the left and right,
The sky was dark, the hour was late,
And still the Commons did debate.

The arguments went round and round,
There was no sign of common ground.
The MPs all shook their heads,
As Theresa stood up and said:

One iPod containing a downright obtuse music collection.
Thirty first lines.
No googling.

(And I will be exceedingly generous regarding the name of the artist, since you'd have to be psychic to figure out when the track I have isn't the original...)

1) New job! After far too much kerfuffle and confusion, I started as an Admin Apprentice at the DWP today. It was mostly getting the lay of the land today, but honestly, I'm happy to be having dinner at a normal time again.

Because I had to quit the cleaning job. I was considering that it might be just possible to do both, but everyone who I mentioned this plan to (Mum, my former Jobcentre advisor, both employers) told me I was mad. I was a bit anxious about this (I've never actually left a job for reasons other than my contract ending before), but they were cool. For my last day we had chocolate cake at break, and they gave me a card. So that was nice.

2. Request for fic advice. The Wikipedia entry on speaking tubes says "Voicepipes have no switching mechanism and so, to provide multiple destinations, separate voicepipes with dedicated transit pipes have to be provided between all pairs of desired endpoints." Okay, but is there any reason why not, or is it just that nobody ever did? I have an idea for a busy Discworld office building having a central "switchboard" where all the pipes come out, and an operator connects the pipelines together, but I've a nagging feeling that if that worked, someone would have done it.

Oh, if anyone missed it at the time, or wants to see it again for some reason, I'm posting my 12 Drabbles of Christmas one a day in reverse order on AO3, here. Currently on Ten Lords a-Leaping.

I've also put up my Scots translation of s[livejournal.com profile] silly_swordsman's AdvenTale "Moa and the Lost Sun", here.

So, if anyone's interested, this links to [livejournal.com profile] john_amend_all's Unconventional Courtship Generator with Discworld characters. Have fun, and if it inspires anyone to actually write a story (as opposed to boggling and occasionally calling for brain bleach, which is all it's inspired in me so far), I'd be delighted to read it.
