Oh dear me, I am being a bit naughty.
Having been unable to stay on the internet for long since moving in here, first because the provided wireless internet signal is weak at this height, and secondly because for the past few days the network has not even accepted my entry, I got fed up.
Landlord's son has promised to boost my connectivity with a plug in thing soon. Until then, I am very naughtily using my phone, plugged in to my laptop as a wireless modem using the mobile network. Sort of expensive, but not nearly as much as pay as you go dialup, and much faster. Anyway, you may remember the many other bills I'm no longer paying. So it evens out. Justified?
I got bored of not visiting all my fave blogs!
Many thanks to those of you who kept visiting even though you weren't seeing my face round yours.
Rain, rain, go away and come again another day.
It's been raining for the past 2 weeks or more, and there's still more on the horizon.
This weekend I planned to put my wellies on and build my own ark. But it's toooooooooooooooooooo windyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. I stuck my head out of my skylight last night and it took my breath away!
Don't be surprised if Great Britain separates from its moorings and docks in a foreign port pretty soon. That is, unless it doesn't sink first from all the rain which has nowhere to go.
And another thing, you know those ridiculous "millions of dollars up for grabs because they can't find the next of kin/can't transfer foreign funds"-type spam emails?
I got the stupidest one today. Yahoo insisted that I had a new email, so I scrolled and scrolled and could not find it! You see, sometimes one of my friends' emails arrives a day late or so.
I found that I could sort by unread and guess where this email was!
At the very beginning of my account, dated 9/18/99, right after my "Welcome to Yahoo! " message from 8/19/04.
Now that, I call sneaky. What do they ever accomplish by sending this crap?
