April 5th

Today there was a loud whining noise coming from my computer. It has a certain pitch that makes the back of my eyes feel like they are vibrating. The I.S. department said they would fix it but I have not heard back from them. I have taken twelve ibuprofen during the course of the day and am beginning to feel a little better.

Need more toilet paper.

I’ve upgraded to a new brand of dish detergent. It’s called ‘Oxygen Clean’ and apparently used ‘intense bursts of oxygen cleaning bubbles that cut to the heart of the dirt, with Awesome Power’. I’m not sure what exactly this means, but my dishes are not any cleaner. There are still crusty food bits in between the fork prongs.

It’s nice to be back at work.

I purchased a small ornament for Kenneth’s bowl. I hope he likes it. It’s a small wooden-style tunnel that has a little porthole so he can peep out and look at me. He hasn’t moved anywhere near to it yet, he just sits on the bottom of the tank. Maybe the tunnel thing will cheer him up. I hope so.

I went to the Personal Finances seminar. I was asked to set the chairs up beforehand, and I did, but I made a point of mentioning that the power cord to the projector was laid over a section of carpet where people would probably walk and might trip. The lady running the seminar was the HR coordinator, Mrs Flagrouche and she told me not to worry, no-one would trip over it.

I tripped over it. Just before the presentation started, I was bringing my toasted colby and Spam sandwich in from the kitchen area, and I didn’t see the cord. Unfortunately it pulled the projector off the table and broke the plastic casing. Dorothy was in the same presentation, so I was really embarrassed. I think Mrs Flagrouche thinks I did it on purpose. I might have to pay for the damage. With the cost of the gas bill this will mean I will be extremely short on funds.

I need to buy toilet roll.
