By all rights I should be dead...or at least passed out by now. I stupidly stayed up until 3am installing a decent LJ client on my newly improved computer. Stupid OS CDs lied when the installer said it was installing a compiler and all the associated gubbins - it did no such thing. Downloading all the required gubbins over 33k6 took blumin' ages. And then I left it running downloading more stuff whilst I went to sleep, except when I turned the modem loud speaker volume down, it kept putting it back up again. So every 2 hours, thanks to Freeserve, I got woken up by it squeeling at me. And then I woke up just past 9. Thankfully I had some Redbull in the house.
In what must have been an act of unintentional sadism, I phoned lucfia as I'd planned to over xmas and didn't get around to it. Ended up helping her spend her xmas money and then some (Sorry :) and got myself some goodies too.
Spent the evening meeting up with folk and forgetting to phone izzy_stradlin. Not entirely my fault. Need to make it very clear that
which unlike the gizmo from work - is loud enough that I can hear it over background noise of cars and people and stuff.
Now...back online again and hopefully will try and get some sleep tonight :)
And yes...for reference I do get "Deck the halls"/pagan answer in the carol quiz. Which I find amusing cos I thought I'd get an answer similiar to the Tom Lehrer
