Just another boring week

Here we are at the end of the week again. I’m just trying to figure out if anything interesting happened to me by looking back through my actual, physical, paper diary. I suppose you could call this thing you’re reading the virtual diary, if you go in for all that virtual this and virtual that junk. How about the Virtual CyberDiary? Revolting, isn’t it.

Anyhow, I keep my diaries separate, mostly because carrying around web browser software and whatever hardware you need to run it on is not yet as convenient as putting a paper diary in your pocket. Oh, and because this online diary is primarily for the amusement of the viewing populace (that’s you). It wouldn’t be quite so amusing if it were as deadly dull as my paper one.

On Monday I paid some bills. That was exciting. Oh, did I say exciting, I meant mind-numbingly boring. Perhaps the rationalisation and corporatisation and privatisation and whateverelse-isation of all the various government owned industries that they’re going bezerk on at the moment will lead to bill payments being more exciting? Like the next month free for every 10th customer? Or maybe for a lucky account number drawn from a barrel? A random customer gets to be CEO for a week! Everyone billed this week with a second name beginning with F gets a free pen! Ah, the possibilities!
