Two for a dollar

The tile guy came and fixed the leak in the roof. There’s still water in the ceiling that is very slowly dripping away. I suppose it will eventually stop. Or the ceiling will fall down.

I had a dream last night about Michael from NZ Idol. I dreamt I was giving him a ride somewhere and some chick who was a friend of mine, claimed to know him and wanted to come along for the ride. It turned out she didn’t know him and I ended up having to introduce her to him. He was really tired and not in a random fan meeting mood, so things were terse and awkward.

I have ADSL now. It was only $15 a month more than dial-up. More specifically, it’s $39.95 a month and I remember as recently as 1999 when flatrate dial-up was $45. Actually, I was working at Xtra when they introduced a flatrate dial-up plan that was $29.95, compared with Ihug’s $45. Those were exciting times. I had to go in at midnight and upload the webpages.

But I digress. My ADSL connect involved a bit of arsing about and having to call three different helpdesks. One was friendly but unhelpful, one was unfriendly and unhelpful (and he sounded pissed off to have to take my call), and finally one was friendly and helpful and now I have high speed interweb. Actually, I’m mainly getting it so my phone line can be freed up. So far no one has phoned me.

I found a card from a courier saying that a package had arrived for a person who doesn’t lived here. I’d previously had calling cards from the Department of Courts (!) saying that they were looking for this person, and now this mysterious courier package. I’ve been living here for almost a year and a half, and my cousin lived here about a year before I moved in, so something weird is going on. Maybe my address has been randomly given out by some fugitive.

Prime TV are showing the fourth series of Australian Big Brother. It’s just as cool as it’s ever been. They’ve all been made to move their stuff outside and sleep on camping beds. Everyone thinks that Igor and Aphrodite are secretly married, and Krystal has just revealed that she used to be a stripper. Her nom de titty was Delta, because obviously Krystal is no name for a stripper.
