There are enormous spiders everywhere outside. I may never see the sun again.
Rant: a huge green grasshopper got into my room through open window and is making noise. When I attempted to peacefully evict it, it got scared and jumped behind the bed. Now I have to wait till it comes out or hope it will stay silent at night.
Oh...apologies, in English those things are apparently called bush crickets. It's all grasshoppers for me anyway.
Edit: on a third try, eviction was successful with neither party coming to harm. According to my brief venture into realm on entomology on wiki, it was great green bush cricket, male.
Rant: Yesterday my housekeeping helper came over, and decided to open a window. When she left 2 hours later, she did not bother to close the window, a fact I didn't realize until much later when I wondered why I was freezing (it gets down to single digits at night now, and we've already had first frost and first snow). So I checked and the window was wide open.
I forgot to shave, and it’s Yugoslavia’s fault.
I was in the shower and I was thinking about the war in Yugoslavia. I remembered one of my schoolteachers had CNN on in the background during class, so I would watch that instead of pay attention.
I too often think about Yugoslavia while I'm in the shower.
In truth, I don't. I usually think about @Snerk
I do like to think of myself as the Yugoslavia of shower thoughts.
Broken up on the ash heap of history?
A client has informed me that the cure to my ills is wearing onions on my feet. It's a wonder we need doctors in the world.
That just sounds like a good way to make your feet smell like onions.
I was wearing an onion on my foot, which was the style at the time
I googled it and got this hilarious article about how parts of our feet connect to organs (and we should walk barefoot because of "the earth's negative ion field") and how onions in your socks "purify blood" and "remove toxins." I think I ended up in the weird psuedoscience part of the internet.
Amazon billed me 49€ for an alleged Prime abonement .
The last time I ordered something via Amazon was in the middle of August, and while I ordered it on the French website, I'm sure that there was nothing which said "would you like to spend 49€ next month?".
Let's hope the customer support gets back to me .
They probably hid it somewhere sneaky.
Sounds like someone signed up for Prime to get a free expedited delivery and forgot to cancel during the trial period XD
LOL I read "abonement" as "abandonment" initially and was slightly confuse but I just looked up "abonement" and now I get it
Prime is 49 euros per month in France? Yikes.
Woke up mfin' 1pm
