Internet users subscribed to streamyx in my area have been having trouble surfing the net for more than a couple of days now. I thought it would be fully recovered by today but no, loading a page earlier this evening took longer than my usual dumping session.
But seriously, nothing can top the misery I had to endure last night. Talking about a bad hair day, or night or whatever hell, it was by far the crappiest in recent months.
The bad internet connection was dreadful enough but that’s fine by me. I can live without surfing the net for a day or two. Besides, what can get worse right?
Wrong. Soon enough I discovered my Astro’s remote control had gone caput. I was so sure it wasn’t the batteries as It was only a few weeks back that I had it replaced. This may not be a big deal to you lot as the channel can still be switched manually but not me la joe, I was already in bed by then.
The worst is still to come- the Astro was last tuned to Playhouse Disney channel! Darn kids…another round of Barney and I’ll go barmy.
Right. So no smut to drool on nor any good programs to watch. And programs on terrestrial tv at best are as good as Bloomberg tv on Astro, only works good for those suffering from insomnia. In the end I decided to call it a day.
With the current political hullabaloo I don’t think I have missed much anyway. Some news (literally) blows, (back) entries on one 23yo dude are posted on many blogs and all of a sudden the fuel issue died down. At the end of the day the rakyat are still being screwed, just like that dude’s ass.
In the mean time I could do with a couple more of good, deep slumber. Try this (at home and office) and you’ll feel like weekend comes sooner than it usually does.
