Procrastination's what you need

Hee. I like my flat. There is a Cute Boy living downstairs. Looks vaguely familiar, actually, which is distracting. I can't decide if he works at the BBC, or has been at some role-playing related thing. And he came up to tell me that my overflow pipe thingy is buggered, and is making nasty stains down the back of the block *sigh*.

I've been here 10 days and have now met my downstairs neighbour. I first met my downstairs neighbour in the old flat about 10 days before I left - ie, about 3 years and 3 months after I moved in. (But she was scary junkie lady, so I'm glad I didn't meet her sooner.)

I'm unpacking boxes - I only have about, er, 10 to go, maybe, and I plan to get another 4 or 5 done tonight. Only I got distracted by the Cute Boy, obviously. Arranging my books is causing me terrible problems, because I'm trying to put them in some sort of sensible configuration, but I have no idea how many I've got of any particular type, so I keep having to move things round.

Later, if you're lucky, you might get a rant about the proposed new stop-and-question without reasonable suspicion powers for the police, but there have been many other good rants, so you might not. Just now, I'll just give you a class quote from the BBC's Have Your Say on the subject:

I for one would happily support the imposition of stringent new restrictions on civil liberties, as long as they specified that any idiot who says “If you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear” was automatically locked up for the rest of their lives, on the grounds that their crushing stupidity represented a danger to public safety."

Rev. Stuart Campbell, Bath

Ganked from perlmonger, because it made me laugh. And also taught me the blockquote tag, coo. Thanks to andrewducker, blue_condition, burkesworks, miss_s_b and various other people for alerting me to this, I haven't been watching the news.

Also from andrewducker, Magic Eye picture! May be non-worksafe, if someone happens to de-focus their eyes while walking past your workstation. Er. I'm impressed that I can still de-focus my eyes at will, though, and see these things pretty much instantly. When they first came out I loved them, and stared at them so often that I actually lost the ability to focus properly on anything for any period of time - my eyes would de-focus automatically.

Hurrah for cute boys! There's a rather cute boy in the flat beside mine - our bedrooms share a wall...

Okay, enough. :P

Re Magic Eye ... R said, "Before you quite get it, it looks a bit like satellite imaging of the Tora Bora mountains -- p'rhaps we should let the US military know where to look next for Osama bin Laden."

So what does the magic eye thing actually show for those of us who can't see those things?

I'm told that it's goatse. I also can't see these things, and therefore cannot confirm this.
