All power corrupts, but we need the electricity

26 October 2005

Work is a bit *meh* at the moment. Stuff to be done, but I can’t do it cause of IT-related issues. You know how it goes, you sit down to email and the computer explodes[1]

Still, I do get to exercise ultimate power, the power to go down and tell silly peoples that “Like dude, your iPod is so, you know, loud that it is, you know, audible all over the library man. So like, dude, turn it the fuck off.” Fun stuff :) although perhaps said in a slightly different manner.

I have also discovered a terrible thing about myself….
I actually really enjoyed Eastenders last night. Lord the horror! But you know, Phil & Grant[2] were back. Nuffink like ‘avin’ the Mitchell bruvvers back to bring a smile to the square. Come on, it was great.[3]

And in a totally random aside, there was more purchasing[4] happening again. This terrible fact means that I have purchased[5] stuff I didn’t really need every day this week. And thats not even taking into account my internet ordering of books and dvds, or my Serenity Visual Companion that I am off to pick up this afternoon.

Still, its almost the end of the month, that means payday, so its all good. All the time.


  1. so vee haff a qvestion fur dich, did vee mean dat liter-alley, or feeg-urateeev-leee?
  2. say it with me, GrAHnt very soft t there
  3. apols to all of you lot wot don’t know nuffink about the bruvvers and the eastenders. It is, wot might be described, as a soap opera. But not the sort wot you ‘ave in the states. No gret looking birds or blokes, only depressingly normal, though still outragous storylines. But nuffink as glamourous as wot the Aussies or the Americans have
  4. pronounce this as “purrr *space *chase *space* ing
  5. purrrr *space* chase *space* ed

    I got bored with the purple ones. Though how anyone could ever be bored with purple darlink…
    Moved onto the trippy green ones. (spelling the pyschadelic word is probably beyond me at this moment in time)

    I'm a bit muddled…cold medicine…but I missed what you purrrrchased!

  4. Fence says:

    Carl is on drugs too :)

    Today I bought a bag, yesterday I bought two tops, the day before I got a pair of jeans, and on Sat I got a coat and a shirt. And I still wanna get some more stuff.

  5. Carl V. says:

    Well we all want to get more stuff, dear Fence. The trick is to exhibit a modicum of self control. Though how one does that is beyond me so please don't ask!

    Did someone say books? :-)

    P.S. Must get Zafon also as I gave my copy to me dad…

  7. Fence says:

    Hmm, think I may have a "Faith" level of self-control at the moment "want, take, have" only with me it is more likely to be "want, pay for, have" :)

    Banzai,there were books purchased also. Sandman Vol 4, Serenity Novelisation (don't bother), Serenity Visual Companion, that Shadow of the Wind(?) one that's been mentioned in oh so many places, and a collection of stories by Grant Morrison.

    Also, dvds; Angel season 2, and preordered Angel seasons 3 & 5 in their cheaper formats. So thats spreading the cost. And of course the pre-ordering of Serenity, playusa's R1 release date is Dec 20th.
