Talk to me about Sicily. I need tips for stuff to do end of October.

I think a road trip would be better than stopping in one place, only been to Marsala and Catania, both nice enough for a few days but not overwhelming for more than that. Very friendly people, great food and weather. It can still get too hot for me sometimes at the end of September, so with a bit of luck you should be fine at the end of October.

Genuinely intrigued, what colour of socks do you wear?

The ones I had on today were blue and green. Own some yellow, orange, red and purple ones as well, differing patterns too, even some differing shades.

How long does it take to get a passport these days?

Have been asked to go abroad with work on the 27th.

Around 20 days if it's a renewal

My son just applied for a renewal. Up to ten weeks in the answer.

There are fast tracking options, however, and you can always go along to the Passport Office in Glasgow in person, if you've got a day to spare.

That's what I though but a check of the Passport Twitter suggests around 20 days only.

Maybe I read the wrong thing though, or maybe it was an old page?

scottsdad should send his passport application to Liz Truss or Kamikaze Kwarteng as apparently they're very good at turning things around within 24 hrs.

Dunno, maybe Twitter has the current actual figures they're achieving, rather than the panicky "help, we're fucking swamped since Brexit and getting no extra resources" figure. Twenty days certainly sounds more reasonable.

thanks @hk blues and @BFTD

Even if I applied tomorrow, it would be touch and go if it came in on time. Quite frankly I am looking for an excuse to get out of it, and this seems as good a one as any.

You'll get nowhere with that attitude. The Prof certainly wouldn't allow this opportunity to go to waste.

He'd work to engineer a passport issue that would require a couple of weeks' stay at a nearby resort while it was worked out. Bit of ambition, man.

A certain British telecom company, who I have just set up a new contract with yesterday evening, have sent the documentation to a namesake of mine thanks to an email typo on their side (residual in their system from years ago, apparently), which is different to the correct one seen in the current contact details section of my online portal. 

The perplexed namesake individual has kindly phoned me up to highlight their balls-up, but also to inform me that he has been given my:  Name, home phone number (hence the direct call), bank account name, last four digits of account number, full sort code, direct debit ref, internet account number & ID, details of my order and the monthly charges.  The emails he's forwarded me confirm all this.

How many million am I to sue for?  Have you ever had your namesake phone you out of the blue?

 

Eta: turns out that Gmail has a strange feature whereby if you have the email [email protected], any email sent to [email protected] or [email protected] will land up in your [email protected] inbox.
