Just who do you have to screw...

to get a proper coffee around here! I've been here a few days now, I've still got stuff in bags that I don't even know I have, and stuff that I know I have and would like among it all, but it's better. I have all the bags to one side and at least for the most part there isn't debris on the floor. After 3 days of moving, mess, hangover, slowly pieces of my life start to come together, I get the computer hooked up, I go shopping for essentials like shampoo, food, coffee, milk, I push the bags around a bit so it all looks better, and finally, this morning I get up, knowing I have what I need to be a complete person again. I put on the kettle, put in the coffee, the milk... the sugar. Oh wait.. that wasn't sugar. I'm not a fan of salty coffee so I dumped it. Later on I discovered I did have some sugar, in one of the many bags off stuff I didn't know I had, didn't ask for and didn't want and takes up way too much space. Well at least there's tomorrow.

I have this vision of you sitting amidst a huge pile of boxes in an otherwise unfurnished room. You're sitting on one of the smaller boxes, staring at a monitor set atop a larger box. In your hand is a steaming mug of coffee, and on your face is an expression of disgust as you taste the salt. I'm laughing here. Am I a bad insensitive man?

remarkably accurate that is.. apart from it's mostly bags not boxes, and the computer is properly hooked up on a little tiny computer table thing with a wooden uncomfortable chair with some kind of animal draped over it, I made sure that I got that sorted out as soon as I got over the worst of my hangover.. clothes, floor space, you know who cares.. but yeah.. otherwise pretty spot on..

laugh if you want to, I find it pretty funny myself.
