Lonely post

Helloooooooooo hellooooooooo helllooooooooooo.

I can hear the echoes around the working world today. Is anyone else still out there (pretending) to work like me?

I am probably going to be in and out of work until I leave for SA; cute furry little plantlets wait for no man or seamonkey. But I am cool with that because I will have three weeks in a beautiful sunny place to make up for it.

I am trying to keep myself company until then by, erm, writing blog posts to myself.

*Waves at self*.


Okay, maybe I should stop doing sniff checks to see if my ethanol bottle is empty…

Peace out.

    I don't blame you, why Harry Potter? Which one? I don't think her writing often stands up to a reread. I am reading the Shantaram at the moment, have you read it? It is quite a rambunctious tale.

    P.S. it is pretty cool that you can keep me company from across the seas. Is the internet not cool?

    It is about a bank robber from Aus who is in jail for 20 years, and escapes and ends up living in a Bombay slum working for the mafia and fighting on the side of the Afganis in the war against Russia. It is all true too. This guy is a bit of a nutter, he used to rob banks with a toy gun. Awesome story!

    Oops, well he is not in jail for more than a few years but his sentence is 20. Steep sentence!

    Sarah: I leave on the 30th. What happened, why you stranded? Is it the weather? I am worried it could happen to me too, the weather here is mental and there is ice everywhere. bleeegh. Shame I cannot believe you won't be home for Christmas. Hugs.
