Hope that got your attention.
Yeah. Well, on AT&T at last. Never again with GCI. They fucked up a lot more than too much. Not thrilled about 6gb of data to be shared among four people, but there is always room for a measure of “we’ll see” in these matters.
Best not to despair now; only the Norns can say how this may end, after all.
Enjoying the new unbroken phone. It is good to have a direct line to the outside world again.
I have a Job Corps progress evaluation tomorrow. It’s unpleasant but unchangeable, and so I try my best to practice a form of serenity to tolerate the discomfort and simply make it through the day– it’s just one day among many, and come fire or ice, in a hundred years no one will care.
The real change comes soon after, when I receive my new computer, putting an end to my near-broken workhorse Dell that has accompanied me through it all for almost 4 years now. The new machine is a Sony convertible laptop, and I have numerous high hopes for it.
So what’s all this about Sellotape toilets?
It’s Job Corps’ preferred means of fixing things: stick enough tape to it until the problem goes away. They treat symptoms, not causes, and in the case of our suffering sanitary facilities, this is the wrong thing to do. The problem often resumes within 15 hours.
I think the dream of a toilet that can flush what it needs to is not so unreasonable.
FIX YER GODDAMN TOILETS JOB CORPS. EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO GO SO FAR AS TO PAY SOMEONE.
