Neither sound nor fury...


It’s wet, it’s cold and I’m miserable. This damn company I work for should be closed and liquidated by now but no, it still gasps and the blood still flows through those CAT 6 cables. Me? Again, I’m the last one standing, I’m bored and there’s no reason to go into the office,..

So I work from home, work as in drinking too much coffee, snacking on the chips and chocolate. Wanted to mow the lawn but the weather has been crap, wet and windy. As luck would have it, my Victa has died and gone up to mower heaven (or hell). Still, I sent it to the doctor’s and hopefully the defibrillator can put that spark back.

Since I’ve started whinging, no point holding back. The company intranet’s buggered; the two stunning ladies at the front door turned out to be Jehovah Witnesses; the wine cellar’s dry and I’ve got a 7:00 pm phone conference which clashes with Two and a Half Men on the box.

At least I’ve got the mash and meat loaf ready for dinner…

Wow - terrible week! Sorry to hear about the mower, zealot babes at the door (I mean, who doesn't celebrate birthdays?!) and dry wine cellar. Good thing you've still got meatloaf and chocolate...oh, a terrificly wry writing style...this too shall pass!

It feels good to vent sometimes! Let if fly - it's called being real, and it's refreshing!

Makes me not so ashamed of doing it myself!

@Annie: you won't find a better psychiatrist than Blogger.. and it's free :)

I kind of liked this post because it made me feel better about my week. Although I sold the house ig et what you mean about the most insanely fussy people. By the way you could be a stand up comedian if this keeps up. Hope things have got better. And where the hell would we be without chocolate....
