    Funny enough being a (wannabe?) banker I'd have to say in general my collegues dress, on the whole, pretty piss poor. Lots of really bad fitting suits (jackets two sizes too big, pants about a foot too long) and the shoes - don't get me started on the shoes. There is the odd contrast collar wanker but they haven't yet realised that money doesn't equal style. Big thumbs up to some of the ladies though.

    Should get out soon after lunch.

    Anybody had any experience buying cake(s) in the Melbourne CBD?

    Need two for a talk on thursday. They won't let me graduate without completing this talk. Help a brother out?

    yep, on a floor of about 70 staff (wild guess, NFI the exact figure), there's 6 of us here....

    Would have taken the day off, except I'm taking Friday, and all of next week off to move house.

    Thanks for all the No Sweat tips guys. I'll give it another go. I don't tend to sweat excessively in general but I've certainly noticed that a consequence of better fitting shirts and jackets with higher armholes tends to be more sweating caused by fabric contact and of course more potential damage as a result.

    Short of making a quick dash to Italy, does anyone have recommendations on where to source a Venetian mask for my upcoming Masquerade Ball?

    Ideally, it won't cost spending too much money (I have not figured out what too much means in this instance). I have decided that going as Bane with a knit tie is not what I want to do anymore.
