Soddling the drabsy straights.

Looking at how much was in my bank, I've paid £20.26 out on something; what it is I do not know. I dislike this fact, but will find out why or die staring at my balance trying.

Update: Twas for a set of blank DVDs to burn, and for a region 1 copy of City of Lost Children. That's fair enough. I just forget simple things sometimes.

Today, as I mentioned in an earlier LJ post, was a day of simple chores. The majority of these didn't want themselves to be resolved (calling SI resulted in me not getting an answer, an attempt to contact an ebay seller failing, calling up a company to give them money and them not answering the phone) but at least I managed to doss about properly, going into town, paying bills and then settling in at work when it wasn't my shift, feeling too lazy to head home and enjoying the company. In the end I spent about four hours in the shop, and did a few hours' worth of work: it's a bonus to add to the amount I'd earn ordinarily.

A fortune cookie laid on the floor near a road I cross on the way home. I kicked the cookie open and read the message inside.

There's a good chance of a romantic encounter soon.
So, there you go. I'm single and apparently I'm very much available and waiting - but apparently not for too long!

I always thought fortune cookies were meant to be more vague than this.
