I pine after it all day, my hangdog expression never leaving my pale twitching face. Every hour is filled with longing and despair. At my weaker moments I call the Ours and beg him to...log in and read my emails.
Yes. My new job blocks EVERYTHING (That's fun).
The first day when I typed in the web address and saw the error message, I tutted but thought I could handle it. Within a few hours I was a shuddering mess. Everything that I wanted to do to pass the time was forbidden - email, blogs, social networking, you tube - so I started showing the following symptoms very quickly:
- Incessant text messaging
- Talking non-stop to my long suffering co-worker
- Asking the Ours to text me the more interesting emails
- Thinking about buying a Blackberry
The cure? Seems to be (shock horror) actually picking up the phone and calling people, which I personally hate. No problem with face to face discussion but phone calls leave me cold. As evidenced by the following conversation:
Daisy: Heeellu? *Her best phone voice*
Me: Hiya it's me.
Daisy: Holy crap what's wrong? Are you ok?
Me: I'm just calling to say hi.
Daisy: Phew. Everytime someone calls me now I assume the worst.
