Yeah you want sad stuff? Because I only flea bombed my room and part of the corridor and lounge, there are still some fleas in the bathroom and kitchen (1 jumped on me in each location) and it doesn't take them too long to get back in my room. Just killed one on my leg in my room. My room should still be toxic to them, so can't tell if they're back or if it only biggy-backed on my leg but I'm back to being paranoid, which is not welcome.

Also, beware, I am complaining every day, it's only that your day is my night. So I just finished breakfast on another day of potential doom right now. But hey, thanks for caring Rostum!!  :P

I have no problem with the complaining. I just expect to hear you have been hit by a metiorite or had a piano droppped on you.

Sorry to hear about the flea problem not being cured i wish you well with that one.

@m3mnoch I found this for you. Seems like I found out you're a commy in the end. Wonder what the FBI will think of this!!

Ok.

So today on The Miseries of Nora, I had a drawn out fight with a flea in my bed which I lost because slapping a flea 3 times doesn't kill it, you need to crush it. I lost the battle as I could finally not find it.
Hung all my sheets and doona out on the line and beat the crap out of them with the end of a broom.

Then made my bag to go cool my head and do some lines at the swimming pool. Went out to find my just services and pumped up bike with a totally flat front tire. For no apparent reason.
I swear. I nearly had a nervous breakdown.

I'm walking there now, wondering if I'm gonna drown or gear a heat stroke or just get a car roll over me now to finish the day or what.
I swear people I've rarely been this miserable.

Sending you all the luck I can spare.
For what it's worth, my friends think that I'm really lucky (at least when I'm rolling dice as we're playing RPGs). So you can hopefully expect quite a boost of luck any time now (depending on what the average airspeed velocity of a common northern European luck is).  :)
Though, to be honest, that might not help you with your tendency to bump into things, as I'm notorious for walking into doorjambs and kicking my toes into anything and everything.  ::)

So today on The Miseries of Nora...
I think that would be a good name for a book.  :P

Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Well Nora, maybe if you stopped doing coke at the swimming pool, you'd remember what happened to your bicycle.


I'm sorry, I couldn't resist.  :-[

Best wishes, Nora. I'm sure your stream of bad luck will soon come to an end.

Library opening times are going to change, open at either 10-2 or 1-5, pretty shitty but guess have to be thankful they're not gone entirely. Certainly going that way though. :(

Where the heck do you leave, to have such problems with your library?

That moment when a game comes up with an error right as you smash the window your supposed to in order to exit the level and beat the boss.
Why? Just why?
I love that level though. I'm only good at three things when it comes to gaming. Sneaking, running, and smashing. Anything that involves more strategy, I suck at. And this entire stage has been sneaking, getting seen, then using a speed drink to fly like the wind and make them shoot each other! And the boss level for the stage is "Run For The Exit, because you shot a rocket launcher in a building you're supposed to be sneaking around in like an idiot!"
Fun times.
Now that the adrenalin has worn off, back to my books.
