    I'd love to say I have been sunning myself and whoring myself around the globe like my namesake but, alas, it is not true. It's a long and dull story, very Dynasty season 8.
    My laptop died and so I ordered a new one. Then I realised I had made a mistake and cancelled the order so I could get a laptop in the Black Friday sales for much less. It wasn't that long a wait, I figured. I found one and ordered it, and then somehow got locked out of my online shopping account as I had never had to use a password, as my laptop always had me signed in. I didn't have to enter a password for years, then using my phone I had to use the password. I had no clue what it was, despite the clues etc. I locked myself out of my account as they suspected fraud. I had made two expensive purchases and then attempted the maximum amount of password attempts. Then I had a nightmare of trying to email proof of ID and address via my phone. The attachments somehow wouldn't show up on their end. Eventually I had to mail them a letter along with copies of bank statements etc. This all took weeks! Then when I finally could could access my account they had cancelled my order so the laptop was now out of stock. I then had to look for an alternative which I did and it has finally arrived.

    Are you bored yet?

    Well... Don't even. I kinda rush bought it was it was one of the last few on sale. It was also the same make as my last one, now I've just realised i didn't check the specs on it. It doesn't have a disc drive! I've never had a laptop without a disc drive. I guess I'm going to have buy an external one now. I also I haven't reinstalled iTunes yet but I'm guessing I have lost a good chunk of my music, if not all of it since my last laptop died.

    The stress of it all.

    It seems I’ve had a dose of instant karma. My MacBook lost the will to live yesterday and I’m confined to RSI-inducing phone posting.

    This is what I get for teasing you.
