An Unnecessary Role

embracing false choices

Things I learnt when moving house

Local authorities can be much easier organisations to deal with:

Want to change your address, get a new council tax bill, suspend a couple of parking bays? Sure, no problem, in fact, we’ll sort all this out at our end and then we’ll call you back and let you know it’s taken care of.

Than private businesses:

Need to close your electricity account? Sorry, can’t do that on the website, you’ll have call the helpline, we’ll put you on hold for twenty minutes, oh, and by the way, your furniture can’t be delivered for two weeks and your removal van is going to be three hours late, but we’re not going to tell you that until you’ve been stood waiting on your doorstep for half an hour.

Putting all your stuff in boxes, moving it half a mile and then unpacking it all, is not conducive to doing a blog:

I do have a couple of rules which is that if it isn’t updated at least twice a day it’s not a blog, it’s a website.  So don’t fool yourself that you’re blogging when you’re really just putting stuff up online.  And twice a day is sort of, I think, the minimum.  I think a blog to live really has to be probably four or five times a day.

And Justin Lee Collins and Shayne Ward will soon be starring in a power ballad music called Rock of Ages:

ROCK OF AGES takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair! This five-time Tony Award nominated musical, now being made into a movie starring Tom Cruise, opens here at the the Shaftesbury Theatre in September.

Somehow I will now use this information to resume blogging. As you were.
