Fair Warning - Ed's journal

Fair Warning
Ed is not a happy bunny.
Ed is getting remarkably close to a very large sense of humour failure.

This week I have had shit from SINergy, that I didn't really need.
At work, I've had a lot of stuff that has urgently needed doing, but none of it was even remotely interesting - filling numbers in on spreadsheets.
I have had my cash/switch card cancelled on saturday. I have been informed today that they managed to spell my name wrong on the replacement, so it will be another two weeks before I get access to my bank account.
And I have had council tax arrears, which as far as I was aware, had been dealt with, passed over to a bailiff firm.

I'm giving the second half of a training course this afternoon. Judging by how boring this morning was, it's not going to go well.

It would not be a good idea to piss me off, or otherwise wind me up at this time.

Yech. Two weeks is nasty.
I (theoretically) get paid next Tuesday, so if you need some cash in the interim, I'll do what I can.

It's not that critical a problem. I've still got several bank accounts from my student days.

I'm just ranting about shit happening, repeatedly recently.

Okie. Offer's there if you need it. We've got a spare room too if you want to escape. Oh, and possibly Paul's RP game this weekend, and a number of other stress-relieving activities can be found, no doubt :)

getting money surely involes marching into a local branch of you bank and wave a cheque at them. Which is of course hassle and must be done in office hours.
or is this pissing you off
EREEEEEEEEEEEEEEK

That's the problem. Where I am is far enough from town that it's a real inconvenience to have to visit the bank.

In the normal course of things, it'd be fine, it's just shit all at once.

Just to say that your second half was much much more interesting than the monotonous first half - there was interaction, jokes, something moving on the screen to watch, and doughnuts! You'd even have been fine without the doughnuts :-) Considering you started with "this product is crap", you did show it in a good enough light to make us believe it'll do the job too :-)

Is there such a thing as an e-doughnut?

Actually, it was an excuse for me to stuff my face with dognuts.
