Why am I text only? Our internet got cut off while I was installing Ubuntu on my laptop :(
What a shitty day - and it had no right to be as I’d taken the day off (told my boss I had swine flu). Managed to, almost right away get into a big argument with my flatmate who i actually like very much about the fact i’d increased the internet bill some 7 months ago & offered to pay the excess but had never done so. My argument was that they had never told me the bill had come EG, if you have to pay the gas - you dont call the gas company every week asking if the bill is ready to pay, you just wait till they ask you. Same difference.Â
So that put me in a bad mood. I eventually paid them [my live-in landlords] the money and asked them to call up and downgrade the service, when they downgraded - boom, the internet went off and didnt come back. I was on the phone to O2 for about 3 hours and decided i’d better go to the pub instead.
I tried to do my blog in Gimp but its so eratic with the tablet EG a simple feature like ‘nudge’ just does the conga all over the screen.
Funny thing tonight is our local is some sort of semi-trendy pub, I say semi as a handful of very rough types frquent it and bring all the trendies crashing very firmly back to earth. For some reason someone had organised an extremely lo-fi kareoke night and nobody was interested meaning the organiser sung Elvis songs very badly - only to be punctuated by soem of the more ’special’ regulars singing for examlple ‘Ghost town’ and what not. It was very funny indeed.
Hopefully a proper posting tomorrow after I get my virtual machine up and running, sozzy xx
