Excuse me? Oonst? I say, Oonst?

I had a sudden and drastic urge to DANCE tonight. If I was still cool enough to have even a vague clue about where The Kids go these days with their raves and their drugs and stuff, I might have gone out. But it wouldn’t have been any fun without Annette anyway.

Once we live in town, perhaps we can do more of this stuff? I kinda hope so. I think my mad desire to dance is related to watching the episode of Spaced where Tim and Daisy and Mike and Twist and Brian and Tyres all go to a club and have a great time drinking and dancing, even though they all started out somewhat down.

For a time, in the early 90’s, I was crazed club ninja, I had VIP passes to various chch clubs (that almost certainly no longer exist) and the bar staff knew what drinks to bring, without asking me. I had a lot of fun, back then. Am I too old for that shit these days, I wonder?

Also, I am pondering selling my motorcycle and buying a really good pushbike, for travel around the central city once I actually live there.

And, once again, I wish Annette were here. I miss her! Much! Vastly! Huge!



So, I just found out that Annette has frantically been sending me mail to my personal account (which I have been mostly ignoring, cos work has been busy as and I was expecting her to mail me at my work account. And I have been frantically sending mail to the hotmail account that annette gave me before she left, whereas she’s been _checking_ her _university_ account!

So, there’s been a frantic bidirectional stream of “I love you! I miss you! You are my bestest woobie!” etc, all missing the intended target. :)Hopefully we have it sorted out now. 🙂

Some signs that I am bored and lonely:

– Workstation storage drive cleaned out, organised, defragmented
– Workstation BIOS settings tweaked, optimised
– Room furniture re-arranged for maximum efficiency
– Cat groomed
– T-shirts folded
– Media Server physically rebuilt. Now fits in 4RU of 19″ space.
– Socks bundled
– Local printer moved from SMB share on my workstation to standalone network printer
– Floor vacuumed

Annette tells me that so far, she has not experienced monkeys, though she did get to feed some deer, so that’s okay. I hope there are small mammals SOMEWHERE in her visit, however. 🙂



Annette left for Japan today. She’s only been gone a few hours, and I already miss her.

Our room is SO QUIET without her around. I may have to go out for a drive or something.

15 days to go!
