Just don't catch your granny blanket on fire.

That would be my luck, wouldn't it. But Granny/Bunny blanket is going home today.

Kind of, I suppose. My family moved here to America in 1909, so it's kinda close. I used to hang out alot as a kid with my Great-Grandmother, and she was directly from England. (Oldbury, Birmingham)
I plan on going out there someday, Mum says I've got a few cousins out there I could contact. But if I had the choice and the means, I would emigrate.

Yesterday I retired the water mattress. It had developed its last leak. It had a very good run. It was purchased in 1985. It hasn't been replaced yet, but soon, soon.

Mrs. Dallas returns from England today. (Four hours late thanks to airline delays, but still.)

Oh believe me, Given a passport and a few thousand dollars, I'd kiss Old Glory goodbye.

Yey! My new computer is finally working!

When it arrived about ten days ago I had great trouble trying to install windows. Couldnt get a stable setup. Eventually took it to our local computer place and got them to look at it. Turns out both RAM sticks were buggered lol. They were faulty and also "cheap shite" according to our comp guy. So...got two more RAM sticks and decided to get them to put Vista on.

The cheap computer, not so cheap after all :P Lesson learned: don't bargain hunt the infrastructure of your rig. The original machine cost 280, with no OS installed. Cost of new RAM, Vista and setting everything up: 180.

Oh well. I have ended up with a very nice rig and it's all working well. I can now access whatever fucking sites I like without the constant presence of the council's Webmarshall programme looking over my shoulder. Hurray:)

The grass is always green in England. I mean that only in the literal sense.

I played 40 minutes last night and the knee held together through a few rough hits, including one that saw the other guy red carded. it is screaming at me today, but that's not the point.

I got my learner's permit today! :jig:

A few months shy of my 23rd birthday, I am finally learning how to drive.

HungLikeJesus 08-16-2008 12:41 PM

It must be tough to live in Tampa and not be able to drive. How have you been getting around all these years?

Chocolatl 08-16-2008 01:31 PM

The good will of friends and family, and a lot of luck. I'm looking forward to being able to go places without having to burden others or brave our joke of a public transportation system. (The last time I took the bus it took me 4.5 hours to get to my destination, which was only half an hour away by car.)

Having seen the lady's picture, I'd say any guy would stop and offer a lift. :D

I purchased the first two seasons of Reno 911. Hell yes. =)
