Now Playing: How Soon Is Now- The Smiths
Topic: My wages arrived
As you are no doubt aware it is Friday or maybe not for some of my foreign readers because of time differences. Honestly what hope is there for world peace if people can't even agree about something as simple as the time? Nevertheless I am the ruler of this blog, so humour me. If it's not Friday where you are just accept that your calender is wrong.
It is the end of my working week, I have no work until Tuesday and this pleases me.
I'm thinking about giving up drinking but don't know if I want to add alcoholism to my long list of failures. I love drinking but I only really got into it because I couldn't get drugs for a bit in my youth. Nowadays I just can't get the drugs I want so am sort of stuck with drink.
Anyway I have some news which will delight and surprise long term readers and provoke a shrug of total disinterest from newcomers. Today I was due to receive my salary.....and good God, can it be true? It arrived on time with no complications. A month without three figure bank charges. I can hardly believe it. And that's not the only financial news! I have received a second donation to the My Debt Hell appeal. It is from the same person as the first, making them not only Godlike in my eyes but a real mysterious benefactor. I feel like Pip in Great Expectations!
Other than that I've nothing much to report, so I shall leave you with a question. One of my kind readers took the unusual step of leaving a comment and expressed surprise that I don't get more comments. I must confess I'm puzzled too. On blogs where the most exciting entry is; 'I thought about cutting the grass today but then I thought it might rain so changed my mind' there are invariably 18 comments after each post, and here I am with a readership issuing me with a stern 'no comment'.
Are you shy? Do you think I'll go away if you ignore me? Some hope I've been talking to myself for thirty years and have no intention of stopping now.
I went for a peek at Sian's blog and took a look at her profile. Would it surprise you to learn that she has nothing listed beside favourite books?
