*Post 298, but also it's my birthday soon
It appears that due to the questionable virtues of a good typing speed and relative fluency in corporate doublespeak, I have become the family secretary. Kate is coming home at lunchtime to dictate a Highly Official Fax to Someone In Management about Someone Else In Management, which she is going to fire off this afternoon. Then I am writing my mother's cover letter for some job application or other. Wish I had pretended to be a lop-brained technophobe, then everyone would leave me alone to play NetHack in peace. In some ways being a secretary/PA/receptionist type would really suit me: I am good at looking professional, typing up minutes and fucking about on the Internet. I can do all three of these at once. Truly, one must bow before my amazing admin skills.
New thought: I sometimes worry that one day I will die (shut up, there is more to the worry than that) and that no-one who reads my blog will know. So now I have a new plan: you will have to pry the keyboard from my cold, dead hands. No wait that's not the plan. I guess I'll just let someone know my login details in my will and they can post something like "Sorry guys no more blog I was attacked in my bath" or whatever.
Sometimes I wonder if I am going Proper Mad. You would tell me, wouldn't you?
Have decided that for 300th post - which is now going to be anticlimactic no matter what I do - I'm going to write 300 words. About something. Or maybe just 300 random words of my choosing you will have to wait and see that is the exciting part I think I'm going to have some coffee now. Also it is my actual birthday soon. I am not excited. I have decided to be 21 forever and ever and ever. Who's with me?
