Things have been a bit chaotic here in Head Rambles Manor of late.
You may have noticed a passing mention of computers going belly up? That was just part of it.
For some reason, every time I start a day, which I seem to be doing now on a daily basis, something conspires to thwart my efforts at a quiet life.
I actually managed to allocate myself a quiet afternoon the other day. No sooner had I sat down than the place was invaded by a K8, two grandchildren, an idiotic dog and a kitten.
Actually, the kitten was fun. It decided that it didn’t like guinea pigs for some reason, and did its damndest to attack our Minnie. For the sake of peace and quiet, our Minnie was in her cage, so the kitten climbed on top and tried to take swipes at her through the bars. Minnie, being a very wise guinea pig, just ignored the kitten which didn’t help matters, and just made it all the more determined.
I forgot I had left the trapdoor on the top of the cage open, and the daft kitten went and fell into the cage.
I have never seen a kitten move so fast.
The fucking thing shot out like a scalded cat [even though it was quite cool in the cage] and decided that guinea pigs were enormous dangerous creatures to be avoided at all costs. Minnie, of course just carried on munching whatever she was munching and never turned a hair. I like her attitude. She takes after me.
I have also been busy with the business of shutting down the business, whenever I can get on line.
I have decided that the best tactic, that involves the maximum profit and the least hassle is to send bills out to everyone, and wait for the responses. So far it’s quite good. One punter paid a couple of grand and he was just a name I plucked out of the phone book. As soon as I get all the cheques in, I will just switch off the servers. I honestly couldn’t be bothered with all the nightmares of shifting them to other servers. Too messy. They’ll thank me in the end when they stop getting any spam.
On top of all that, I have had the usual routine stuff, like gardening, games with the dog and hunting the odd American.
So you see, I haven’t had that much time for updating this thing.
But then, no one reads it anyway.
