Long absence

I’ve had no access to the internet for the past couple of weeks or so. No phone either, and no television! But today I finally managed to pay my bill and I’m hooked up again! It’s a relief, because I just finished rereading Slaughterhouse Five and wasn’t in the mood to find another book to fill my time. I’ve quit smoking again, it’s not going SO well, keep slipping. But it’s getting better everyday!

I’m poor again, it is true, but I’ve started my new job and I quite like it. Market Research Interviewer again. It’s a good gig really, pay is okay and the only problem is figuring out a schedule where I can get a few more hours a week. I may have to pick up a Sunday shift, which is okay generally except on Easter when people get pissy on the phones.

But Easter is a long time away, Jesus has to be born still on Christmas before we get to him dying a horrible death and then coming back to life.

I never understood why he came back to life and then buggered off. I mean, he ressurects, and then his whole physical body goes to heaven? It confuses me. Are there toilets in heaven?

Mum is getting a dog today, hopefully. She’s already bought a crate and little dishes and a teeny harness. It’s a smoothcoated mini dachshund, and she’s naming it Hermione. I hope Hermione and Arthur, the thuggy golden, get along well. Arthur hates little dogs except for my little guy Mister, so he should take to the new pup well. It’s exciting, new pets are always exciting. And mum likes dogs. She just wanted to go look at the pups at Petland one day because they had some doxies and fell in love with one of them. The last time we went her sister was gone, but the one mum wanted was still there. So HOPEFULLY by the time we get there this afternoon she’ll be there.

I’m so happy to have internet and television back. Hurrah for la interneta!
