Mood:  energetic
Now Playing: Chopin: prelude in E minor

I find it a little bizarre how much better I felt today, given how badly it started, with the robbery in my car. I spose I won't know the price of that till next week. And besides, thanks to the would-be car thieves, I only worked one hour today - no wonder I was feeling chipper.
I've got three days of uninterrupted |genericworkthings| to do now, though, so the cheery face may waver - ignore it! No more moaning and whingeing. Just don't read this blog till next Saturday is my recommendation.
It was all pre-menstrual tension anyway. (as a friend once put it: "just how many fucking days of the month are you not premenstrual, exactly?")
Anyway, I'm proud of my crappy sad self today, cos I opened an entire year's worth of post this morning, and dealt with every bill but one. I sorted loads of stuff out with banks and cards (couldn't really do anything but, as I'd run out of bogroll ... groogh), which left me with enough money to go buy some PJ's. Alongside the bed boiling, all part of the exorcism (that sounds mean, I don't mean getting rid of ex-DH, I mean making it possible to live here without nightmares or hearing weird voices in the middle of the night - it's hard enough breaking up, without having to wonder if you're dreaming or if you're bonkers yet.)
Today's serendipity factor is that if I hadn't gone to the bank to sort this out, this afternoon, I wouldn't have run into Chris Eubank at Canary Wharf. Celebtastic! I left him pining for more of me while I purchased my goods, but when I returned, there was a strangely coincidental bombscare. Lots of smoke and dust, and no ex world heavyweight boxing champion in sight. Either someone wants his eccentricity belt (and bowler hat) off him, or he was trying to get away without me following him back to Essex.

I swear, I couldnt' imagine how much more of an @#%$! I'd be if I were pre-menstrual.

I haven't paid a bill in months. I'm going ot regret it at the end of the year.

I can't help but read the blog, it's too interesting to miss!

Well done for opening all that mail - I open it and ignore the bills on a daily basis - to do it once yearly would be far too stressful. I bought myself a nice cosy pair of jammies yesterday too - I didn't have the money but I justified my putting them on my credit card becuase I had to have new jammies, cos it's cold and it's almost winter and I have no-one to snuggle up to. And seeing as how I was putting a few extra quid on my plastic, sure I may as well have slippers to match. And then sure I may as well buy that nice cardy that I seen in the shop at the same time - sure if I'm going to break my pledge to never ever use my plastic ever ever again except for stuff for Christmas, I may as well get everything I need (yes, I already explained why I needed everything). God, do I sound like I feel guilty about getting myself further into debt?

You're a sweetie for linking to me with such a sickly line! Rah, two blog heroes have linked to me now. Can someone tell Tom Cruise to do a link-list on his blog?

I see we share precisely the same financial acumen. :D
