This is a very random post, just my thoughts from the past week, nothing exciting.

I have actually been really productive this week (other than the part when I was still kind of sick): running errands, making calls, etc. I went on Tuesday after work and bought a new clock radio, which I have been meaning to do for ages. And on Wednesday morning, the first time I used it, I woke up to “Hey There Delilah” by the Plain White T's. I have totally loved that song ever since [ profile] being_fulfilled first posted it, so it started my day off just right. Evidently it is number three in the charts over here right now, which I would know, if my clock radio hadn’t broken three months ago! So I’m excited to have radio again. And I really should buy that CD, I bet it’s good.

Other things that I have done include making billions of important phone calls. In the past two days, during lunch, I have called all these people (I SO know you guys even care!):
1. Virgin Media – to ask why our internet was down over part of the weekend and get our phone line set up
2. Barclays – to FINALLY change my address to that place I moved to 3 months ago!
3. CPW – to ask why I haven’t received my new phone in the mail yet. Evidently the claim didn’t go through properly (STUPID), so now it’s been fast-tracked and I should get it tomorrow, THANK GOD.
4. Villa – to check on my brother’s jersey order
5. the Police – to get the reference number from reporting my phone stolen (need it for insurance) since they never called me back
That is a whole bunch of waiting in a queue and listening to bad elevator musak, so I feel very accomplished! Plus, everyone I talked to was nice, so that’s good. I hate it when I call customer service and they just can’t wait to get you off the phone.

I went to a wine tasting last night – my first ever – for New Zealand wines. The Embassy puts on these events from time to time, and this was one. It was actually pretty fun, mostly because of the people I went with. And I totally have a new crush now - I'm such a dork. Let's just say that it's weird that all the people in my office are my parents' age practically, and one of them brought her son (my age) to the wine tasting. Riiiight. That's just what I need! Anyways, I’m not much of a wine connoisseur, but we did have some nice tasting ones (yeah, that’s all I’ve got!!) and I wrote stuff down, so maybe I’ll remember?! I didn’t spit either, so I felt pretty happy by the time I was on the bus home.

Speaking of the bus, we’ve been having a tube strike this week, which is totally insane. I mean, seriously, A TUBE STIRKE IN LONDON? The whole frakkin’ city RUNS on the Tube, so it’s been chaos. Only 3 lines (out of 12) were running, so that meant that the buses and trains were absolutely packed. I usually get a seat on the bus at least on the way to work since I go in early (not usually on the way home) but not this week. The tube is always standing room only, so this just brought that right over to the buses, with people packing on and having to wait as two or three full ones went by. Quite frankly, it was a pain in my ass. But they seem to have mostly resolved it now, so that's good.

Eh, I think that's all I've got for now. I'm watching Greys Anatomy at the moment. It's my flatmate's absolute favorite show; I'm just kind of okay on it. I don't think it's so fabulous. We're on the episode where Meredith almost drowns and she's in this almost dead place - it's weird. I'm not sure I approve.

And I'm out.
