Ah... Crap.

Five days ago I started this baby and now I've had a hundred and fifty hits.
This is sweet. Awesome in fact. Thanks guys.

Firstly, I'd like to say that I am suffering terrible food poisoning inflicted by (someone else's) bad cooking. If I have to suddenly make a dash for it to the bathroom in order to relieve my stomach, you probably won't notice. But I'll be sure to let you know. In detail.

So, what do you think about the Royal Mail Strikes? Has it actually affected you in a major way? Who actually uses mail these days? I mean, of course there are loads of businesses and people who do online shopping and well, the list could go on and on, but on a level aimed at you readers, who relies on mail anymore? And who has a sense of URGENCY regarding their mail?

Personally, I'm never expecting letters. They come, oh they come regularly, but when they do, I read them, I don't think I've ever found myself running to the front door, seeing that I have no mail and cursing the world with my fist in the sky asking "WHY!?"
When I have a parcel coming, it's normally from a website that doesn't use Royal Mail. And isn't there a cap for the number of times people are allowed to strike for? I won't pretend to know what the ins and outs are of this strike, I hear something about job cuts in order to make the service more efficient due to a waning demand for the Royal Mail service. Surely something about money too right?

And that just about peeks my interest for this whole Royal Mail debacle. Let's move onto a more interesting topic.


Windows 7 has been out a while now and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I tried out the RC when they released it and it was so much faster than Vista! I also want to use it for its multi-touch interface but that means having to buy a new monitor! I'm nervous about mentioning Windows 7 too many times because I'm sure my adverts will start changing away from "Polish Muslims" (Which I find amusing) to "Windows 7" which just won't be as much fun.

Maybe Microsoft will pay more than Polish wives though...

So that should ensure me some new flashy adverts.

What do we think about the U.S proposal to pay out members of the Taliban in Afghanistan something along the lines of $20 a month in order for them to stop being militia for the Taliban?

Yeah, stuff...

Stomach just went funny, think I might need the loo.



  1. some of us are getting so screwed over with student finance because of this whole mail strike thing!!

  2. Do they mail your money to you? ( :P )
    I dunno how student finance works isn't there an internet alternative? Is it because you have to send them stuff or the other way round? Or a flurry of both? Good luck with student financing though, hope it picks up!

    BTW, I don't know a dilruba... :S

  3. what's this about a US proposal? that is ridicuLOUS!

  4. its serina btw, apparently i have to have a profile to have my name come up....discrimination!

  5. Serina!
    Some people in high places in the US have proposed that they pay members of the taliban to disarm. Considering that the war has financially ruined many peoples lives, they turn to the Taliban as it's just about the only way to support their families.
    In doubling what the Taliban provide for them (the U.S would offer $20 a month) these people would no longer have to be the ground troops for the leaders of the Taliban.

    It's been a success for the U.S when they did it in Iraq.

    When I heard the news, it was because the war is costing the US something ridiculous like a hundred million dollars a day. Paying these people out instead of fighting them would cost something around the hundreds of thousands maybe.

  6. Food poisoning sucks, hope ur better dude.
    The strikes do suck badly, 1, yes its piss take for those waiting for their student loan confirmation letter, that they need to show to their university in order to receive the payment direct into their bank account. 2, if your waiting for a cheque/bank card or summin similar =(
    The u.s are gay, but if it means stopping war.. bring on the $20 a month.
