There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Blocked in so many ways.
This post will begin with me talking about something that means more to me than it does you and will, with every paragraph, be of more use to more of you. Or, at least, that's the intention. I may amend this post consequently.

Since Thursday morning I've suffered a blocked left ear and nose. Otex went to work on it and did its job until this morning, so I had to re-attempt to fix this. My ears are now back and operational: the nose will remain blocked temporarily.

Another thing that was blocked was an account of mine on Gunbound. I felt the game was improving, so offered funding to get it working better. My account was then hacked into within days, as if I became a target with my newfound currency. I was very disappointed in this, so attempted to contact the people behind Gunbound to see if my currency could be passed over to another avatar - no response. I informed Paypal, who are in the process of getting me a refund. Gunbound closed the account in question, to prevent the hackers from getting anything else out of the avatar, I'm sure.

I've got myself out of the rut I was in, in terms of not feeling like travelling or meeting people. I'm very much in the mood to travel, to get away from work for a bit whilst in nice company. So, who's visiting London anytime soon? I know I'm going to meet Jess in Leicester, and Sel and Katy (and more!) may be down in early August to see Jerry Springer: The Opera, which I would like to see.

I finally got my mobile phone fixed, so you can pester me with messages again when I'm not near the PC. Which isn't very often, I know. Pfft.

I've been given the chance to beta test the feature livejournal are working on, which will allow you to shove pictures up onto their space. I've only set up basic things so far, but they're here if you want to see. You may need to be logged in to see these pictures.

Lastly, I'm now allowed to offer an invite to someone so they can use Gmail. Any takers for it? I know I've seen a few people post requesting the chance to get an account, but I believe they've since obtained accounts from friends earning invites before I have. First come, first served on this.

Thats pretty cool [Gmail].
But since I don't know you as well as most people I won't beg!

I txtd him and he didn't reply so I'm guessing the answer's no.
Applied for loads of jobs today so your trip to Norwich may be getting closer!

Well, you're the first to ask, so I don't mind passing the invite on to you.

And remember I did give you a number that might not be his for certain - we don't update mobile numbers that often, it may well be a mobile he doesn't have any more.

Anyway, what email address shall I send the invite to?


If it's still going that is!

Invite should be on its way.

Actually, wait.

Hotmail, last I heard, was blocking emails from Gmail sent to it. You might not actually get the invite if I sent it there.

Heya. I'd like an invite if you could spare one - gmail sounds rock and I don't want to go to eBay just to get my desired username before some other clown, but I won't flip out if you decide against it. That's my guarantee!

Well, I promised it was to be done in a first come first served manner, so when I get a second invite it'll be heading in your direction, as a guarantee back.

Wow, thanks. That would rock my socks, but please don't feel obligated.

No, that's what you get for replying second. If another invite comes along, it's yours.

Saying that, to get invites people need to email the gmail account. It's quite dead.

Oh you should definitely go and see Jerry Springer the Opera - I loved it to pieces! There's a fab tap-dance in it too. ;) Be prepared to be slightly shocked, too. ;D I've got the soundtrack if you want a copy after you've seen!
