Still not taking my hot water and heat for granted.
My colleague is working at home today. I wish I was working at home today. But, you know, if I was working at home today, there would be very little actual work being done, and much more sitting on my ass, in bed probably if I’m honest, drinking tea, watching The Wire*, because, hello, the shit just went down and someone got shot! A someone I actually like on this show that is taking far too long for me to get into but that everyone whose opinion I care about when it comes to TV tells me I absolutely MUST watch…er, where was I? Oh yes, not working at home, which is just WRONG!
I could also be knitting. Because, as we know, I am a knitter now. Except I kind of suck, as shown by the fact that I’ve unravelled the scarf I am knitting my friend 3 times now. 3 TIMES! Because I don’t know how to rectify a dropped stitch. I should really read my knitting bible, that’s gotta be in there surely.
I could also be playing Zelda on my kick ass DS, although Zelda is actually kicking my ass and I have fallen out with it a little because it keeps making me start at the effing beginning of the castle every time I die (which is often), and then I have to go through the same damn level, and past the evil sentry things that hate me, with time running out (as shown by the delightful hourglass in the corner), just to get to the same place and be killed again. I am very tempted to just read the online cheats, which are actually bookmarked on my PC now. But I promised I wouldn’t. And so I’m not. I’m just sulking instead. It’s cheaper than buying a new DS when I throw this one at the wall.
Backing up to The Wire again for a second, I am something like nine episodes in and have just started to get everyone straight. I don’t think I was paying as close attention as I should have been, because I only figured out who Avon Barksdale is today, and I’m not sure of the names of anyone else except McNulty and Kima. Oh and Bubbles. I am slow. McNulty is not annoying me as much today, but that’s because he cried and threw up when that person got shot, cos he was all guilt ridden like, so I’ll let him off a bit today for the dodge accent and bad boy crap. It is tempting to talk like all the people on the show, but I generally don’t swear that much and me adding ‘and shit’ to the end of every sentence or calling people a mo fo just wouldn’t go down very well.
I’m starving. It is no where near lunch time. Today I have to finish a flyer, send out some review copies and info, and er…make sure everything is sorted for Thursday’s sales conference. Not looking forward to that. I have to do presentations. I talk too fast and get all red. Not pretty. But then we have a meal out, hopefully with something I can eat (mmmm food….) and the party on Friday, with balloons.
OK…I think this stream has run dry for now.
*Season One just in case anyone reads this and feels the need to add spoilers…PLEASE DON’T! Ta.
