    Amazon

    I need a battery bank:
    I need some Isopropyl Alcohol:
    It's likely that one or both of these items was produced in a foreign country, and got to the UK via a cargo ship, but delivering from the mainland across three miles of the Solent is out of the ****ing question. I can buy a battery bank from argos or currys on the island - how did they get them here?

    Went to put flowers on my son's grave. Could not find it for ten minutes as it was so overgrown. In fact fire ants had built a nest and abandoned it since the last time it was attended to.

    My ex-wife has apparently moved away and not told me to take care of it. I would have done so in a heartbeat had she just told me. (The fact that I had to stay away from his grave because she didn't want to see me is how this all happened. My only child, and she wanted to ban me from his grave. Makes me see her in a totally different light.)

    Just been feeling crap the last few days, general frustration with people and things and stuff!

    Also, stupid me suggested buying a tablet outright to my partners nan, rather than go to a phone shop. She wanted someone to help her sort it out so I suggested not going to a phone shop to be stung for a air tariff she will never use, buy the tablet outright as they're fairly simple to set up and save some dosh. I agreed to help her out if needed (i.e pop round one evening for a predetermined time)

    Got invited for tea, which while its nice she makes a good lasagne (although I swear it contains a tube of tomato puree), Just today is certainly not ideal... my partner also realised it wasn't ideal. Son has been to nursery and is generally exhausted and wants his bed pronto. too early to sleep by say... a gentle car ride perhaps? is enough to recharge his batteries ready to be a pain in the arse ALL NIGHT LONG.

    She tried to weasel her way out of it but her attempts only resulted in it being pushed from 5pm to 6pm... Somebody thought suggesting an hours doctor appointment was a sufficient excuse to rule out the whole evening!?

    When she also added the whole COVID thing her nan proclaimed "All those important have been vaccinated and are safe" Uh... HELLOOOOOO, I understand the intended sentiment here but come on now!?

    So tonight I'm having a (very tasty) but VERY RICH! Lasagne, a sleepless night and probably the squits.

    BON APPETIT

    I mean... come on... seriously?! Virgin Media connection quality is all over the shop, but I can literally run an intensive bandwidth test at the same damn time and still get a fairly fast result ffs!

    Yes, I signed up to their PlayPro ********, because £14.99 for a month for one month is cheaper than the retail cost of Mass Effect Legendary Edition...

    Thoughts and prayers.


    for me: really late night last night, feeling rough today and going away tomorrow for the weekend. Hope I'm not coming down with anything...

    Yeah, tried that, no beeping to be heard. so either the batteries are dead, its buried so deep that the beeping is too muffled; or its no longer in the house...

    I don't think you can control the box from the "Sky Go" phone app.
    But you can ask them for the new "Voice" remote for free.

    Moments ago, I learned of the passing of Berserk's mangaka Kentaro Miura at the age of 54. As someone who's been reading this manga for almost 20 years, this news hits hard.

    Apparently it may have been undiagnosed Marfan syndrome. As a Marf myself, this hits hard. Aortic dissection is my greatest fear.
