Ok, so I could be persuaded to change the name of the blog to
An Aussie – No A Kiwi ; No Man and a Burmese but it has a vaguely familiar ring and I don’t want to get done for copyright infringement… or to upset Katia and her most excellent blog… but we now do have the Burmese thing in common…
This is Chino. Apparently short for cappucino but actually I derived his name from a contraction of Chinois – French for Chinese if I recall correctly… which is stoopid anyway because he’s not Chinese… Go figure… anyway I never said my brain didn’t work in mysterious ways… I’ll confess that it’s most likely to get regularly shortened to ChiChi anyhow which sounds suitably Oriental which was the whole point…
I’m blogging from work, Optus showed up yesterday and were unable to connect me to the cable… I’ll be dropping from ADSL2 down to ADSL as the new exchange hasn’t been DSLAMED – bugger… one of the things I should have checked before moving in… Nightmare… had a meltdown on the phone to the CSR because I’ve been hanging out for it SOOOO long… I do have to point out in Optus’ favour that they’ve been very helpful about it all even though it’s still bloody next week before I’ll get anything going on… arrrgh… The worst part of all is that I’m missing my NZ family like mad and can’t call them for good long chats because I don’t have a home phone!!! BOGUS.
Anyway… I should have a phone on Monday… it will be cheaper than the last because I’ve signed up for a business plan… hah… take that Optus… getting less money out of me after all… particularly, due to my pain and suffering, as they’re not getting any transfer fees out of me.
Amazing what a few tears down the phone can do, eh girls?!
Anyway – best do some work… Blogosphere I miss you… and as it’s de-lurking week please leave a comment to say hi… I know you’re out there… my stats don’t lie!!!
