When I was younger (so much younger than today), I wasn’t much into fads and hobbies. My mother’s distaste for anything that encouraged consumerism (eg plastic dummies, Barbies, psychedelic bracelets made out of laces…) meant that I was never so fortunate to be bought every new fangled object of primary school desire. However, the closest I got to fad indulgence was that for several years one of my Christmas presents was the ‘Big Comic’ Annual. Lots of comic strip reading for the discerning younger reader. Contained within included Desperate Dan, Minnie the Minx and the like. One type of which always stuck in my head: Good news, bad news.
So, here, for your entertainment in these rainy summer months is my recent Good news, bad news…
Good news – Small Corner had a lovely time in the Republic. Good times were had involving ‘grape juice’, a sofa, a movie.
Bad news – my laptop wanted to join in the fun but he and ‘grape juice’ didn’t get along too well.
Good news – I’d been smart enough to know that I’m dumb enough that something like this might happen, so have been paying insurance for donkeys.
Bad news – Bought the laptop off PC World and their customer service is sh*te so laptop’s departure for the fixing place has been delayed by nearly three weeks.
Good news – I’m a little less addicted to the multi-tasking tv and surfing. My wrists are recovering from the RSI.
Bad news – Blogging curtailed.
Good news – my housemate and her pretty macbook got home from camp on Saturday so am being kept in the online fashion with which I am accustomed.
Bad news – I REALLY REALLY want a Mac.
Good news – I can’t afford a Mac just now so won’t be sacrificing my soul to the spirits of astheticism just yet.
Bad news – I REALLY REALLY REALLY want a Mac.
Good news – I get to use Housemate’s so that when… er… if I ever buy one, the transition will be less taxing.
