So, I get to write a bit more becaus Ache is running late…
I wanted to mention that I purchased my first mangoes of the season today ($1.97ea)… I am still waiting for the nectarines to come down a bit in price, they are still over $5.50 but watch out… I am a summer fruit animal… Then there’s the cherries… they drop after Christmas… Woo hoo… now I have to sit on my hands till the mangoes get just a little more ripe… Oh for Shame… I don’t know how long I can stand it…
I think I also promised to update on the flat situation… the Count will be moving into Bliss’ room early in December… he, (yes, he) is a colleague, an accountant… (hence the name) and quite possibly one of the most intense people I have ever met… quintessentially melancholic and pedantic and from all appearances quite possibly one of the straightest people on planet earth. When Bliss and I talked about him we decided that it would either work out very well, or be a complete disaster. She also added that if it was a complete disaster at least I would have lots of stories to tell. He is staying till February which will tide me over till the time when more people are likely to be looking for a change of scene so I think I can bear it till then…I wonder if it will be slightly weird working with my roomate, he sits behind me at the office… Too close for comfort???
On another work note I believe when I go back to work tomorrow I will have a new desktop computer with all the bells and whistles required for Supreme Potentates of HTML… Only bummers are, I can’t bring it home, will have to learn Photoshop (I am a PaintShopPro girl at the moment…), and will now have a computer on my desk that other people can use if I’m not there… I HATE THAT… (Sorry Territorial Girl slipped out for a second… )
Hope the Count works out…or adds up :)
Photoshop is fantastic – teaching myself at the moment and spending hours manipulating family photos into technicolour abstracts!

oooh, I think you may well have plenty of stories to tell by the sound of things! I’m glad I’m in a position where I don’t have to find someone else to share with me, especially as I’m wanting to sell up and move away next year anyway. I don’t know if I could handle getting used to someone new. Prayers for you!
