infinity

exuent and fall over. it's the ubiquity of globalfulnessness that makes us all sit at our desks and talk like this. I used to be just the same as I am now. sitting there on a warranty desk filtering out the calls with 'SunOS 4.1.1' or 'Openwindows' and putting them in a queue I kept especially for people I thought would never call again and then spending the rest of the day constructing a hilarious usenet posting about Pot Noodles and flaming a dick from Leighton Buzzard. but you progress, and now I'm working at the weekend because the thing I first thought of has turned into the thing that that's now 2 weeks later and 37 into one isn't quite all I thought it could be. you've got one of those over there, but I haven't got one over here. they definitely don't have one in Japan, and a guy from Slovakia has told me he already knew about it when I was supposed have told him but didn't but he isn't going to but it doesn't matter because they don't but I'm thinking they will when they see the things I'm sending them because they haven't asked for it, but they're going to get it and they'll just have to take it out themselves.

if I could only rearrange the following words, I think I'd be able to make sense of it: time on delivered when going might help if but you're busy localization applications for once I that said before dammit. It's probably something to do with that infinite number of program managers and an email client proposition. you know, give an infinite number of program managers an email client and eventually they'll write every single conference call number and meeting time combination possible on one line without word wrapping but including a signature file so dense the universe implodes after a 'five minute break', but crucially, they'll then spontaneously all stop using it and create a startup company and be the only people at their own leaving parties in an infinite number of bars on University Avenue, necking an infinite number of Jagers before waking up on their own and crying an infinite number of tears into their muesli because that's really all there is and there's always a parrot calling your name, but it's spelt wrong so you never got the email, but the sys admin who's aliased your own domain and catches all bounces is laughing at you with his friends and pointing at you in an infinite number of corridors with Network Computing posters and notices about Java Desktop System and Solaris plastered on them covering up the Why? campaigns that nobody's really sure whether you allowed to take down even though they're 3 years old.

there, there. is there a t-shirt I can wear? I love free stuff.

there's only one word here: washing. it's done in outline font and tarmac. it's right next to phone number for BT Business Broadband complaints (which is 0800 679905, by the way) and it serves to remind me of one thing. I'm more responsible than I ever used to be. I have a number of dependents, more house than Mecca bingo and sums of money that constantly slip betweem my tanned-but-fading fingers. If I don't hang the washing out I will DIE. That's all there is to it. I'll now put Joy Division on and poke myself with sticks in the dark until I get the bends.
