There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Unpleasant corporate corporeality.
Barclays has never felt like a loving bank. They've always felt rather proud to be more important than you, their staff proud to know you mean little to them. And they're perfectly happy to rub these facts in.

When you receive letters with scaremongering tactics regarding credit card cover it goes to show how important you are to them, though. How much they would like to drain from your account.

You might not use your cards very often - but a thief would! and If you ever discover your [credit cards] have gone, your problems may only just be beginning.

For a loving bank I'd expect them to be far more pleasant if I ever did lose my cards. One day I'm really gonna have to look into alternative banks. I bet there are banks that offer better terms of interest, whilst still retaining locality and whilst still retaining a feeling that they're not corporate.

But until then? I've got to get ready for work. And get things ready for dogmeat, with his copy of Wario Ware waiting to be delivered to me. I need to send £25 in a fairly chunky padded envelope, along with a sticker with my address on, so he can send my game in return.

Wario Ware!!! good choice. excellent choice.

I just got a Natwest account. Why? Exactly teh same reason. I hate Barclay. I asked for a new Paying in book in March. NEVER GOT IT! they really are annoying...

Ugh. Banks. I have no clue with the likes of them, although in life you can't help but need them. (One flies over her head) See, I didn't even know about that one. :/

I'm really interested in Wario Ware, but I can't get my head around mini games that are only 5 seconds long. Wooooot? Would need to play to understand, methinks.

5 seconds or shorter, even.

Here's the key to Wario Ware - it's fast, and it keeps getting faster. You can set it to just send the same mini-game at you faster and faster, until you reach the point where your brain can no longer keep up with your digits.

Have you played Mario Party 4? You know the cute 1-player games in the Extra Room? Playing those games after playing Wario Ware is so painful, because the game keeps slowing back down. ...

Well, you have to play it. You need to play it. Yes.

5 seconds? Too quick! My reflexes are sooo slow, it'd be over before it'd even began with me! Stupid thumbs......

Sadly I've never played the Mario Party games past the second one :/ (Booo, hissss!). Ahhh, loved that flaming skipping rope ;)


A bomb game? If it's a half-decent Bomberman clone, it might be a reasonable site. So why not send a link and see what happens?
