My Poker Face...


It is Sunday. I am at my husband's best friend's lovely house - Do you remember the one we repaired to, in winter, when the weather meant we kept getting snowed in at home... This is the house with the all-white decor with tasteful nuances of rose; The house where I am afraid to move a lardy muscle, or even sneeze normally... I am the Mother of All Sneezers, and shopkeepers flinch in fear as I pass their bijou emporiums. I can break plate glass with my sneezules -

Why am I at my husband's best friend's house, sitting on his rose pink duvet, tippy-tappying upon a Georgian mahogany writing desk?

1. They are currently watching the Belgian Grand Prix;

2. This is at least where I have short-lived access to his t'Internet, which I have been without for ooh, well over four days now...

3. Did I tell you my husband's an IT techie person, manager, thingummyjig?

4. What that means is, like with busmen's holidays, he doesn't fix our stuff at home for he's world-weary of sorting other people's IT problems out twenty-four-seven, internationally, across wide oceans, interwebbily...

5. No.

6. "What do you mean I should have fixed it by now, Fhina?! Get bleeding stuffed!"

7. Meanwhile, Fhina lies bereft on a rose-pink velvet chaise longue.

8. Sighing.

9. Suffering.

10. With a long poker-face.

Please forgive my absences from your bloglettes? Mwah!

And the cobbler's children go without shoes. Sounds like my hubby - he would do/say the same in a similar situation. Hope he fixes it soon!

I feel your pain, Fhi. I was stuck in the French house without any tinternet and lufe was very bleak. Now I'm just watching how much I'm on here due to having some monthly limit on a non-landline set up.

It should be standard in every house now and totally free

yeh, my 'lufe' was indeed bleak

I understand both ends of the dilemma. Since I work in sound engineering, and spend much of my day listening intently for little pops and blips and whatnot in voice recordings, I have no desire to listen intently when I am at home. This annoys MY WIFE, as she likes to speak much more than I do, and I really should listen more carefully sometimes, but I don't. On the other hand, she works in finance. And wouldn't I like it if she'd bring home more money, no matter whose it might be? Alas, we have both learned to live with the other's shortcomings.

I'd vote for a 'World Wide Free Internet Party'. What is life without access? Unbelievable how it has taken hold of me...here, take my kids, JP, daughters cat [I'll keep Milou] but don't take my access.

If you don't mind I would like to befriend your husband's friend or any of your other friends who have a rose velvet chaise longue on white thick shag piled carpet with
waterford crystal glasses filled with champagne served on silver trays by Leonardo di Caprio look alikes. I also watched the Belgian Grand Prix but in dissimilar circumstances.Some people are very
spoilt!

Well someone looks like the cat that got the cream anyway, Fhina?! Hope you get hooked up to high speed soon!

I don't have that issue(husband is a scientist, with some hefty computer skills), because he can't bear to let anyone do something he could do himself, it hurts his male pride I think!
