Coming home to find pots stacked up so high in the sink I can't fill the kettle, and bread crumbs over every available kitchen surface.
Also people who I haven't spoken to in over a year trying to talk to me all the time all of a sudden. It wouldn't bother me but I feel that I have moved on from those days but I can't seem to weasel my way of out of it without me coming off badly. As usually happens. Because I have the tact of a wet flannel/am too honest for my own good.

Installation bars that only monitor one aspect of an installation, so it just randomly bounds across the screen as it starts the next bit and dosen't tell you anything about overallprogress.

To be fair it was only an adobe reader update which took no time at all, but it made me irrationally upset for no reason.

I can only empathise with you here.

That sounds like the sort of thing I could do with knowing too. Goddamn practical research assesment making me spy on people.

the people who work in Vodafones call centre are a bunch of useless cunts. all i wanted to know was if my phone upgrade had been dispatched to the store im going to tomorrow. i spend 5 minutes repeating my phone number to the girl who is insitant that my phone number is only 10 digits long even thought i telling her 11 digits. but low and behold its the computers fault shes thick as shit. she then puts me on hold to talk to 'online team' and then asks for an order number. after explainig to her again all i wanted to know was if it had been dispatched, she goes to 'talk to her manager for 5 minutes' and puts me back on hold. after getting no where with that i give in a little and give her the order number. she puts me back on hold for another 5 minutes only to tell me what the address of the store is. i repeat myself again about what i want and puts me back on hold to 'talk to the online team'. only to come back as say and i quote "we dont know" and says they will contact me by email. so i put the phone down on her and try again to talk to someone else, who quite quite quickly says she doesnt know because the store is closed now but phone them before i go. what fucking load of good that is gonna do me at 7.30am when no one is gonna be in the fucking store anyway.

i hope whoever serves me tomorrow has the phone because they will not like me if they tell me its not in stock.

Went to a lecture for the first time in a week. The lecturer spent 30 minutes talking about a single slide of the Powerpoint, and got through I think 4 in total. It goes up on Blackboard anyway, so I'm not going to bother anymore.

Finding out VPW are doing a show in Portsmouth. Which I would quite liked to have gone to if it wasn't the day before I get paid.

Of all the thousands of words I type about pointless things of an evening, the moment I need just 1500 words on a subject I have somewhat of an interest in, I cannot think of anything to write. :(

Can't even browse SomethingAwful without paying for an account now, apparantly. Well that sucks, I got many a laugh from there.

Split my lip and didn't realise until I covered it in salt from the liquorice. IT STINGS.
