You check out your colleagues at work and try too figure out who is going to make KorvetteKaptain first.
Or you make a start on inviting the sweety at the coffee machine to be your Funkraum officerette.

Whilst under the shower you block the drain hole with your toe, until the water is ankle deep - just to imagine for a minute what it must have been really like! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Only the queen can own swans............True.
But I, or anyone can own fish, specifically Carp.
One of my parent companies managed Estates had some Carp in a pond outside the 'old' mansion house which needed re-roofing, enter Polish contractors - exit carp!.
Fishing in Ireland, every boat that stopped with Germans on it...... out came the spinning rod for the pike.
Both fish are delicacies in the respective countries and hey, a mans gotta eat!.
Having had a run in with a p!ssed off swan once I'd only do it again with a 12 bore under my arm as I walked over...... better still I'd borrow my mates 10 bore - sorted!.
