It's been a funny old week for me.
When I say funny I actually mean not funny at all.
In fact it would be more accurate to say it's been quite a painful week.
Both physically and emotionally draining.
I been a bit ill for most of this week.
Not ill enough to be able to have time of work, or a lie in or sympathy from loved ones. But ill enough for it to make a difference to my every waking moment... and there's been a lot of those moments because, due to the slight uncomfortable pain I have, I have not had much sleep.
Not being able to sleep means that I am tired and grumpy. Grumpier than usual.
On top of this the internet has been playing funny buggers with me.. In fact - just as I have written that very sentence the whole page has jumped half an inch to the left.
This means that I can no longer see the edge of the screen.
Why has this happened? I do not know.
I pressed a button by accident and now can not get the screen to look right.
This is a typical example of the kind of issues I have been having. Small, silly little errors that build up like a snowball that rolls down a mountain side and turns into an unstoppable avalanche, just as I've stepped outside to "write my name in the snow".
On top of this the internet has been running really slow and crashing all over the place and I don't know why.
It really creams my corn.
I'm usually careful with the internet. I don't go on websites I shouldn't, I never click links unless I know where they will send me, I don't even get spam emails.
In the many years I have mooched around the web I have never received an email telling me I could extend parts of my body, boost my wealth and sexual prowess or even make $$$'s from home.
Maybe I'm missing out. Maybe if I had taken the small risk of clicking those "too good to be true" links I could now be a multi millionaire, living on my gold plated luxury speed boat who has saved a foreign prince from exile, married a Russian gymnast and now have the ability to satisfy women from across the room without trying.
Alas - none of that is in anyway close to how my life has panned out since I first logged on to the internet in the mid 1990's with that AOL CD that came threw the post.
Instead I sit here with bad guts, an ingrowing toenail, huge bags under my eyes, a laptop with a suicidal "down button" on it's keyboard and await the wife to come home from work ready to give me a right good bollocking for not doing the washing up...... again.
I'm also quite hungry.
So all in all it's not been a funny old week at all really, unless you get off on that sort of thing.
What are you, a wierdo or something!
