Customer Care

You have to just love the care some people give to their customers.

No telephone available? No email support?

Well…at least we can submit a ticket request…right. I just have to decide how unimportant it is:

Prioritise This!

Love it!

It’s been a long couple of weeks…so much so that I can’t even remember what happened the week before last. I’ve been out a lot, I know that much.

From last Friday I’ve spent pretty much all of my time at the Casino at the Empire in Leicester Sq, as it was hosting the World Series of Poker Europe. Thus, my routine for that week was as such:

Fri: Work. Lunch at casino. Work. Casino for dinner. Home to bed, drunk, at 2am.
Sat: Casino. Dinner. Casino. Home to bed, drunk, at 3am.
Sun: Casino. Dinner with a friend. Back to casino. Home to bed, drunk, at 1am.
Mon: Work. Lunch at casino. Work. Casino for dinner. Out to play poker. Back to casino. Home to bed, drunk, at 3am.
Tues: Work. Lunch at casino. Work. Casino for dinner. Out to play poker. Back to casino. Home to bed, drunk, at 1am.
…do you see a pattern?
Wed: Work. Lunch at casino. Work. Casino for dinner. Home to bed, drunk, at 2am.
Thurs: Work – but took a half day as it was down to the final. Casino for lunch, and midafternoon snack, home for shower, dinner, shave. Back to casino. Home, sober, at 5am.
Fri: Felt like shit for work.

This knocked me out for Friday night, and I was happy to sleep in.

As you can imagine, spending such a long time in a casino drinking and eating – even when not playing – can prove to be rather expensive…and I certainly managed to burn through several hundred during that time – however, it’s one week a year and I very much enjoyed it. Plus I’m up a bit in my actual poker playing just now, so that’s always good.

Apart from that I’m working on a few websites for people; one of which I am doing as a freebie, the other of which gave me payment (not quite enough to cover the casino…but there we go).

Someone is currently trying to buy riddle.me from me…and although they are offering slightly more than I paid for it, I’m not willing to sell for less than a couple of thousand at this time.
ETA: They seem to have stopped bothering at £800. Double it and I’m interested.

I’m a little enamored with someone right now, who is attractive, intelligent, funny and – of course – unattainable.

I bought a Nintendo DS…but the card I got to play games on it doesn’t seem to work. boo.
ETA: Seems to be working now – hurrah.

I’m several weeks behind many things that I need to do…but don’t have the energy to do them.

All in all…life is good.
