I had a list of things to do today, and I didn’t really do any of them. Don’t you hate it when that happens? I was supposed to go for a run, but instead I turned off the alarm and slept for another 90 minutes. That’s never a good start. I am sick of using websites and phones to try and get things done. Because nothing does get done!
I detest those voice recognition femme-bots so many companies use to answer their phones these days. “I can understand what you say, please choose an enquiry from the following list”. I realise no one’s gunna offer me an actual person to talk to but what happened to “Press 9 for accounts.”?. I mean, you’re not fooling anyone, we know she’s not a real person! If you say anything while she’s talking like “hang on a minute, I’m on the phone” or even sneeze or something it’s all “I’m sorry I didn’t understand that. Please repeat your request” and you’re like “I didn’t make a request! That was a sneeze!” And no one wants to sound like a dork repeating the same thing over and over again until a computer masquerading as a receptionist understands you. “Something else”. “Something else”. “Something else“. “Some. Thing. Else”. “Something else???”
And I seem to have really bad luck with websites recently too. For example this WordPress blog. I’m sure it can’t be as hard to use as it seems to be. Like I’m sure this blog used to be in a sexy Tahoma, but everyone seems to be telling me that that’s impossible. Whatever.
This wasn’t meant to be a rant about the technoverse, moving on. 🙂
Tomorrow a man is coming at 9am to give me the interwub in my room! My dream is finally going to become a reality. Of course I’ve tried so many times I can’t quite believe it until it happens. I’ve been hurt too many times before 😛 I always have stuff I wanna write in here but by the time the computer’s free I’m always too tired to do it. Hopefully if I can go online on my computer I’ll be able to update more often. Try and contain your excitement.
For dinner tomorrow I’m meeting up with Amy and a couple of girls from high school which should be fun, and sometime I really need to start my essay!!! Found out today that I am working LONG hours this Friday and Saturday, joy. Might create a page on here for my cranes and then go to bed. Goodnight, blogosphere!
