That Burning Sensation
25 September 2001
6:11 PM: Angel good. Silly vampire. Felt unright to see show without faithful sidekick Buffy though. Network dumb. Want satellite TV, with digital video thing. Must wait til mid-October. Satellite TV company, also dumb. Ugh.
We had a power failure last night of course. But not until sometime after midnight. The main bad effect was having no alarm to go off this morning - something about which it is impossible to complain with any strength. But I did end up calling the Post Office after 9 AM instead of between 8 and 9 like the moro- er, helpful fellow said. So all he did Today was take my name and address and number and tell me he'd "get right back to me." With predictable result. If I were a cursing man, I would imply that the US Postal Service was having carnal relations with one or more of its parents. This isn't just a package you've lost, you idiots, it's my CIGARETTES!!! Don't you realize how dangerous that is?
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
