11 January 1999 - 11:54pm
Some days are just days,
while other days are adventures. Yesterday was a day, while today
has been an adventure!
When I get up of a morning, one of the first things I do is turn
my computer on, then go have a shower while it boots up, connects
to the internet, opens Outlook 98 and downloads my email, so that
I have something to read when I exit the shower. Today was
I turned the computer and monitor on, and immediately noticed that
my monitor wasn't showing anything. I hit it, and it came alive. I
watched it for a minute and when it started flickering I knew that
it was ill. I hoped that it wouldn't explode in my face, as I'd be
really unhappy, but it just died instead. I hit it again, and it
came alive - but died. I did this a few times, and eventually it
didn't didn't come to life again. My monitor died on me!
I rang around and discovered from the symptoms that it needed a
replacement of some kind which would cost more than what the
monitor is worth, so I decided to buy a new monitor.
Unfortunately, the shop which looks after me doesn't have any
monitors in my price range until probably next week, so I arranged
with a friend of mine to borrow one of his spare monitors until
That was the beginning of this adventure.
I met with MissA at around 1:30pm, and met her friend - whom I
shall call Isabel. Just for something different. The first
thing I noticed about Isabel was her tanned skin, which was
accentuated by her white top. She looked very pretty, and I was
happy I had been introduced to her. The next couple of hours were
great - MissA had to leave so Isabel and I continued chatting for
another hour, before she had to leave and pick up her son from
school. She told me that she was going to Sydney tomorrow and
would be back on Sunday, but I could call her next week after she
gets back. I think that's a good sign... and I'm glad - she's
really nice. Thanks MissA... *smile*
After that episode of today's adventure, I went to see my doctor
at 4pm. I have a couple of warts, one on the index finger of my
right hand and the other on the sole of my right foot. I wasn't
worrying about them all that much, but lately the one on my foot
had started to hurt, and a friend advised me to get it removed
before it grew roots up my leg! So today I did something about it.
It looks like I'll be seeing the doctor twice more over the next
couple of weeks, as he wants to remove them the painless and
slower way - by icing them off. That's fine by me. No pain
is good, as far as I'm concerned.
After that, I went to see my friend Estera, and got a rental
reference from her. The real estate agents of the house I'm
moving into want two written rental references from me; Estera was
one, and Alex will be the second. Anyway, it was good to see her
again. I got the reference from her, as well as a request to go to
a website and print out an astrological forecast for her for this
year... sure. No problem. Maybe I'll print one out for
myself too. I might also put it online here, and at the end of the
year we can all refer against it to see how accurate it was. That
should be an interesting experiment.
After I left her, I went to visit my other friend who I was
borrowing the monitor from, and I took it home. Then I went to
visit some more friends and spent the evening roleplaying... some
relaxation at the end of a day of travel and excitement.
So that has been my day of adventure. I didn't get any work done
whatsoever, but it was sure fun! *smile*
