Back at work today after 2 days off, not sure what good I'm going to be though.. while I'm not sneezing/coughing as much as I was the last few days I'm utterly exhausted, my head feels like it's full of cotton wool and I'm ready to go back to bed

Hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start.

Did my grocery shopping tonight... was eager to get my final week of $50 spend at Coles out of the way... got about 29k flybuy points to slowly milk now.

Thanks MNF support for not calling me back for 3 days in a row.

I can one-up you on that Mugsy. I had them connect NBN a week ago after moving into my new place. I had it for the weekend and then on Monday I had no sync... and I've still got no sync. Still haven't heard back from them which is a shame, as I have my mobile with them (no problems) and I've been with them for VOIP for around 10yrs.

I'm probably just going to have to get a tech out myself and cough up, as it's too annoying to go through the real-estate, then have to have a day off yadda yadda.

Good job NBN, not thrilling me so far :P

OK, you win. I'll quit complaining. At least I can still get into Diablo 3 for a few games.

On a more positive note, i had catch up with my bro... nice tapas dinner and a beer as payment for massaging my sore left trap. Good to hear that his massage business is picking up.

Goats are mental. How on earth does it get down?!

That video gives me severe anxiety.

======

About to go on our first ever holiday as a family (and my partner's first holiday interstate in over 7 years). It's this week, 4 days in Melbourne, zoo, aquarium, super stoked.

My eldest (6) has gastro. Last time he brought gastro home was last August and saw all four of us with a really terrible bout of gastro all at the same time. Thank god for cancellation policies and insurance as we may well have to call on it. Very sad seeing my little buddy so unwell and slathering the entire house in disinfectant in the hope it stays with him.

Wish us luck!

Had a really nice day today, the weather was good so the Mrs I and I got out on the bike for a ride to a nearby town for coffee, was supposed to be 20 degrees or so and sunny and beautiful, and after the long cold ass winter we were looking forward to it - sadly we got to having coffee and the wind picked up and clouds started rolling in, riding in heavy winds isn't fun.

Still, made for a nice day, did some DIY on the bike and installed some new grips, although my bars are loose and I need to figure out whats going on there.

Glad to you and Cherry having a mostly good day yesterday before the wind picked up.

And finally, a response of some sort from MNF after 5 days of slow speeds and being kept in the dark on the issue:

https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-r ... 49&p=4#r67

Still nothing on their website nor an email to let people know what's going on:

I'm having a really tough time with my mental health at the moment, my anxiety is off the scale. We tried going to a pub for a few drinks on Saturday and I couldn't do it, we tried going to the supermarket on Sunday and again I really struggled to manage with such a simple task. I hate it when things get to this point. The ride on the Harley was good, but what I really needed was sunshine/fresh air/etc.

Disco is off to Sydney for his company's annual conference on Wednesday morning, so I am accompanying him. Weather should be sunny and around 20-23 degrees and we'll be across the road from the beach so hopefully some quiet time in the sun will help.

i picked up some glazing rolls today at a shop we use.
there is a new guy serving me (been using them for decade or two now)
young lad.
he had either a tat removed or he had scarred himself with a nazi tattoo on his forearm. it wasnt obvious, but there.

i dont know how i feel about it.
should i raise it with my rep or their management. if he has changed his life around and had a tat removed, who am i to get him into needless trouble. he just should wear long sleeves.
otherwise he is a fucking nazi and shouldnt be there at all...

That feeling when you've spent a week working on a 5000 word assignment and on the day it's due you stumble across a comprehensive 300 page report addressing your exact topic. I worked so damn hard creating my layout/topics/sources annnnd now here they all are in black and white with a billion references I never found. God damn it.
