I should have gone back to bed when my internet connection suddenly died on me around 8:30 this morning. But no, I spent three quarters of an hour in the telephone hold queue for Ozemail support. Now I hate their hold system because unlike Canberra Cabs they don't give you an estimation of how long you're going to be stuck there or what number in the queue you are.
Instead they have one of those chirpy voices over utterly banal plinky music reminding you that "if you have an internet connection you can simply log on to the support website." I DON"T HAVE A CONNECTION! THAT'S WHY I'M STUCK IN THIS MOEIBUS STRIP OF A QUEUE!!!
Oh, and because of the music, I can't listen to my own music while I'm on hold because I (oddly enough) prefer to listen to one lot of music at a time.
Finally I give up, get on with all the other things I had planned to do and try logging on again around 2pm. And waste another 3/4 hour of my life on hold. But this time I was clever as I had a copy of Madison to read. Of course, after 3/4 of an hour on hold my internet suddenly decides to fix itself.
And to can my technobastard day off now I can't get the pictures on my blog to stay where they are supposed to be. I'm sure there's a very simple easy straight forward explanation (if you have one I'd love to hear from you) but I'm grumpy, hot sweaty, tired and realising there is probably a lot about how this blog program works that I don't understand. Why, for instance will it utterly refuse point blank to load some pictures?
Sorry, normal chirpy transmission will resume in the morning I'm sure...
