Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
My name's Simon...
... and I'm an addict.

I hate dial-up. I really do. Yet here, for the sake of a couple of Easter Eggs I'm in Southampton (candidate for dullest city in the UK) with only dial-up for company. Bleurgh quite honestly!

Still, had a mediocre day at work which culminated in a good meeting (I talked, he pretended to listen) and it will be a chance to read up my GD downtime. The more I read it the better it gets but I have this urge to froth some more with yapman, sixtine, bellagrim and pax_draconis. Still, it can wait. And I do rawk ;-)

Hopefully out tomorrow with fishthecat and (if he emerges) lupercal. Until then I will suffer paying by the minute, and will consider getting broadband for the parental unit even though I only visit once in a blue moon.

Best go now and watch documentary on caddyman's fighter jets...

Current Mood: irritated irritated
Current Music: Eastenders on Parental TV

I lived in Southampton for seven years. I left cos I hated it so much. A lot of good things did happen there but its a hellhole of mediocrity. I did the pubs, clubs and other venues to death, they closed - I left. The place has little if any soul.

I was glad to get out when I did at 17 after having grown up here - then came back for an (academic) year. It'd take a lot to get me back here for any length of time now.

At least until I'm middle-aged enough to appreciate it!

Dear Simon

It is good to admit your addiction only then can you start the road to recovery or seriously plan your further fall into its irresistible yet fatal clutches.

Perhaps it should not be "He who dies with the most toys wins" but "He who dies with the most bandwidth wins" ?

You should also consider your local Starbucks.. Don’t they have WiFi now and even McDonalds is starting to tempt young unsuspecting bandwidth/always-on junkies to their centres, where one addiction can feed of another.

Bandwidth is one of those things you didn't know you had until it was gone..
