Telstra appears to be run on a special power source called Fuckwattage.
I have been without the interwebs for nearly two months and the only reason this event has not completely ruined my life is that I am not currently a participant of any online dating services.
The final chapter in this bruised and bloody saga was the technician arriving "first thing"today to finish off the job that was truncated yesterday when his drill ran out of power. Current English language usage suggests "first thing" means 7 or 8am. He arrived at 2.14pm.
I now plan to catch up on my facebook stalking and watching of inane videos involving small animals behaving oddly.
