Today was crap


In column B for bad
- I managed to bust my deadline today by more than an hour, just by myself.
- I forgot to send my aunt's birthday card.
- I didn't get home until 9pm; everyone else left at 7-8ish.
- My mate just got made redundant, six months before her wedding, which is scary news for anyone who works where I work;
- Speaking of which, LJToys informs me that one of youse who reads here in fact works in the building where I work. All I am saying is omerta. OMERTA, mate. No one say nuffin. I won't ask after you, you don't ask after me;
- It pissed down today, and was particularly torrential while I was walking home. Today's Evening Standard headline was Monsoon Weekend (which is shit in terms of being the weather forecast and a shit headline. Oh, Evening Standard you are pretentious and a bit rubbish at the same time.

In column A for awesome.
- I am presently writing this from my bath, which is hot and full of bubbles. I am eating Ambrosia Creamed Rice from the can and listening to early Simple Minds, before their crap stadium rock phase. I am well clarsy. [the image? why, you're welcome. *g*];
- I have achieved new Pratchett;
- I did not brain anyone with an iMac monitor today (though I was very rude to a poor lady from IT and I am very sorry about it now);
- I have decided that I am taking the month of January off work and will bugger off somewhere hot using the magic of credit cards. It's worth being skint for six months.

It comes up on the profile, *all* the time; they check my LJ by clicking to it, rather than going through the flist like everyone else does. I don't like it.

The Pratchett is "Nation", his first non-Discworld in an age, and has had a good buzz. I think it's a kid's book but I will read anything he writes. I thought it wasn't out until Monday but WH Smith on Chancery Lane had copies this morning.

Since it's going to tip down tomorrow, I plan to got to Tesco early, buy a heap of fruit and nuts and hummus and good bread and salady things, do my washing and sit in my house with the laundry steaming out that clean cottony smell from the radiators and read Nation aaaaallllll day.

I guessed. But CWT -- that's the IP addy that comes up? That's what you mean?

Yes, that's right. And I don't like it. Its habits strike me wrong.
