Dull and boring

Well, my internet isn't broken any more, which is nice. The rest of the world is conspiring to annoy me, however. Yesterday I had to attempt to sort out the council tax, which is always fun. This is only the second time I've thought my account fixed and they were about to send me an updated and correct bill, so I'm not hopeful it'll actually turn up - usually it takes at least three visits in to shout at them.

I need to call the phone company too - I transferred the bill into my name and started a direct debit, but got a letter today saying the bill hadn't been paid. Which it has. Grrr. But I'm with Talk Talk so it's the Carphone Warehouse people and their call centre is outsourced to India and nobody has a clue what you're talking about. Maybe I'll go into the shop, which is what I do if I have problems with my mobile, but I'm not sure if they know much about the landline side. Argh, and now I've just checked my bank statements and the Carphone Warehouse have taken a random payment off me that they shouldn't have. Bastards. Why is everyone so bloody incompetent?!

Today the doctor was running late, and the pharmacy decided to keep me waiting for 20 minutes or so despite being completely empty apart from me. I have no idea how they can take so long to make up prescriptions - I'm vaguely suspicious it's a long-term hidden camera stunt. I have to go into town again to post a couple of LOTR figures I sold for virtually nothing on ebay, and make an optician's appointment, and buy shampoo.

I took Monday to today off as holiday, and I've spent it all doing dull, boring things. This is annoying. Well, I did manage to watch six or so episodes of Veronica Mars, which was fun, I guess.

Veronica Mars is only kinda fun? And I've heard such good things about it.

Oh, no, it's wonderful! But four hours of it in five days off only works out at "fun, I suppose" over the whole time.
