About Delilah

So apparently I give good haircuts to strong men πŸ˜‰

Also, I have changed my mind 137 times about who I am since I started this blog. So there is just no point writing it down.

  1. Hey Delilah,

    Do you sing by any chance?

    We are looking for sopranos who are interested in singing choral music, mostly acappella from the renaissance to the modern.

    I keep talking to people and all I find are alto’s, where this mega supply of altos turned up from I don’t know

      1. sigh. that blogroll has not been updated in a year at least and therefore is not indicative of who i read or dont πŸ™‚

  2. Delilah, just forward this to your boss and see if it draws any results:

    Dear Operational Team Members,

    We have received a request form the Honorable Minister of the Labour Relations and Productivity Promotion to grant a holiday on Friday, 19th November 2010 to organizations located in areas of Colombo 1,2,3 and 4.

    The Employers’ Federation in their circular to the employers have advised that appropriate action be initiated by such employers considering the practical difficulties the employees may encounter in terms of movement/road closers etc.

    Taking the above in to consideration our offices in Colombo 1,2,3 and 4 will not open for business on Friday 19th November 2010. However, you are advised to make appropriate arrangements to ensure that operational activities are maintained without interruptions.

    Thank you for your co-operation.

    HR Team.

    1. Jack,
      i could. but my boss might point out that we are located not in Colombo 1, 2, 3 or 4 but unfortunately in the sticks.
      still, all is not lost because i plan to head out of colombo on friday afternoon. so at least i will not sit in office sending murderous/jealous vibes your way πŸ˜‰

  3. Hi Delilah,

    Would you care to support a cause?

    I’m not sure if you are a visitor to the Galle Lit Fest, but this year Reporters without Borders called for a boycott of the festival. We have set up a Facebook group opposing the boycott call and we will write to the signatories once we have enough members.

    Sunila Abeysekera, an award winning human rights activist makes a good case as to why the boycott call was a mistake, see her letter here:

    http://groundviews.org/2011/01/24/writing-against-the-rsfjds-appeal-to-boycott-the-galle-literary-festival/

    My own post on the matter is here:

    http://jestforkicks.blogspot.com/2011/02/rsfs-boycott-of-galle-literay-festival.html

    If you think the call for the boycott of the literary festival was wrong, please add your friends to the group below.

    This years festival went well, but if properly organised next years could be sunk by a boycott, which would be a pity. About 312 people so far have signed the RSF appeal, we are hoping to grow this group to something larger than that. If each new member can add 5-6 friends we will be there.

    “Whether you like the literary festival or not, whether you support the government or not, if you feel that Reporters without Borders’ boycott was damaging to the cause of free speech, please join this group, to prove that most people oppose the boycott.”

    Please pass this on

    Thanks
