I eat, drink, watch ... telly ... read murder mysteries ... and miss all the ... clues ... eat more ... watch the Lord of ... the Rings again ... and again ... and ... again ... the computer has beat ... me at Puzzle Bobble thirty five times ... is this what being ... dead is like? ... went to ... the shops ... everyone else looks like they're ... walking ... through ... glue, as well ... must go ... Denis Norden special on teevee ... nearly bedtime ...

Thing is, I'd been utterly convinced that my adsl connection was the slowest thing on Earth or Star, but the ten minute wait for a previously loaded page to *refresh* is enough to put me off the bloody net forever. It's like talking to your grandad, this.

Imagine the Matrix filmed as a shadow-puppet show. Well, it's something to do while you wait for the page to load.

You poor dear, dialup. The style of this post had made me feel your pain. Perhaps you can try stuffing your brains back in to the proper spots upon returning home.
