Ha! Call that a commute, do you, Prague? I'll show you a commute. Try the Northern Line.

Sleep on the sofa and then you fall over. I'll be glad to get a real bed (Wednesday, apparently).

I'm in that odd state caused by sleep deprivation where colours shimmer slightly on the edge of my vision. My caffeine/sugar intake has to be calibrated with the utmost precision. It balances on a delicate knife-edge between helping me function as a semi-coherent human being and not. Just not. Mainly I twitch. It can lead to disaster.

However, the good news is that I have now packed, shipped, cleaned, inventoried, farewelled, moved, flown, moved in, arrived, hot-desked, VLANed, allocated, oriented, planned, collected and avoided staring rudely at a parti-coloured female mullet. But before I go thinking I'm a superior being and all, I suspect I may have done most of this wrong. Perhaps staring is a form of compliment?

And Subservients D. Boilerplate? I appreciate your sentiments. Really, I do. But I think you might get a more favourable reaction if you emailed someone of the opposite gender. I lack the equipment you appear to require.

EAP, I bet you are still busy POPping bubbles. If memory serves, it's as entertaining when unpacking as it is when packing--with the distinct advantage of not having to stop oneself from popping all the bubbles.

Bubblewrap still in transit, azteclady. I'm beginning to suspect I was being wildly optimistic about shipping when I only packed one pair of work trousers...

Oh, dear.


[So as not to say, all disbelieving like, "wha...?]

Sorry - I'll fill in the detail. Shipping people have adopted a "flexible" approach to my delivery needs. So most of my work gear is still in transit. I've had to buy new work clothes to make it through the week, since I expected the boxes to arrive on Monday.

I'd shipped a lot because I was trying to keep my plane luggage weight down.

Ack!! *wincing in sympathetic pain* [I've moved so far between 4 different countries--international movers are demon spawns indeed]

Here's wishing you luck in getting all the rest of your boxes soonest.

*Happy dance*

Now, EAP, get cracking with that bubble wrap! *chuckling*

Kidding aside, I'm glad you finally got your stuff.
