I don't know how or when, but I've lost another contact. Great. I've only had these for a year. I got up, went to the bathroom, put in my contacts, made coffee, fed the cats, fetched the newspaper, sat down with it, and found I couldn't read it. Checked in the mirror and sure enough, no contact in my right eye. Retraced my steps, scouring the floor -- nothing. I've ordered a replacement, but it'll take about a week before it's here. Blasted thing, where can it have got to?

I got up early because I had to go to the hairdresser's. The girl turned out to be a perfectionist and took her time, but the result is worth it; for once, I'm not mourning the loss of my tresses. It's a good deal shorter now, which means my curls have all come back, and she's finished it off with some copper highlights in amongst the dark purplish red of my home dye job. It's looking very good, if I may say so myself.

I stopped by the book shop to get some tomes full of tips on assessments and job interviews, because I've decided there's too much at stake now than to trust in my usual technique of just winging it. And as it's been 10 years since I've successfully applied for anything, I figured I could use some help. So, if any of you have any helpful hints you feel you might want to bestow: be my guest! Virtual beer and chocolate all round when I land this job!

And since having heard it for the first time on TotP last night, I just can't seem to get Gwen Stefani's Hollerback Girl out of my head. Such a funny song, but -- what's with the bananas?

Is it sad that this sentence made me wonder how, exactly, you could lose a contact in your instant messenger list without deleting him or her?

See there now, you might just as well have written this in Japanese for all I can make out...I don't do instant messaging, you see, and so have no clue how it works, or what the terminology is. But if by using the word 'contact' I made you all confused, I apologise for it! ;-)

it's a little programme with a little window open

Ah! That'll be that blasted MSN Messenger that pops up on my screen at work every morning, and bugs the hell out of me with insistence I define my contact list. To which I invariably react by killing it -- ded.
