I 'm addicted to Skype . .truly . . I log in at 8:15 ish am and if that little orange bar doesn't light up and Notsoanonymous or JD doesn't say 'ello . . guten tag or fizzle ma shizzle I am crestfallen. Similarly less frequent 'blip' sounds in the evening announce someone wanting to chat . . .
I'm sitting here right now waiting for ClareBear to chime back. We started a conversation on Adam's new Power Book (not sure the webcam does me justice but . . ) then the bratty kids declared that one of five dogs has a tick in it's eye and nobody gives a shit. Hold that call.
Fortunately there are no paralysis ticks in England but the tick is still embedded in poor Lara the Lurch's eye. Clare has been briefed with the virtues of olive oil which suffocates the tick and allows it's removal. This woman she works with has no idea about how to care for animals . . the worst bit . .she (my depressed Au Pair) burst into tears. It's like watching your best friend behind a window, losing it. I can touch but can't feel. Only 6 days to go before her travels commence and . . . in the background, little posh tots are lurking and distracting. For goodness sake, piss off and give her a few minutes family time.
Anyway . . Adam and I ended up having a long conversation thanks to the novelty of new bunnies for the British Brats and after tears, and messages saying that she can't articulate her frustration we had a lovely chat. Webcam and all, bad hair and silliness, we cried, we laughed, I uncharacteristically so, I, had trouble getting a word in edgeways.
My Saturday's aren't complete without at least one chat with the usual suspect, Dr "his name must not be mentioned", or Gaye sitting in bed in her PJ's waxing lyrical about her plans or ClareBear sneaking a moment away from the Bratastics . . my evenings are often enlightened when GrannyMar pops in for a quickie or my once only test call with the Criminal. Hey, if any of you ever want a free conversation, IM or voice . . shit . . I'll talk to anyone! Skype me baino1610 . .unless you're name is "Hotman", I'm usually there. Webcam optional and only available after a full hair and makeup . .or if Drummer Boy is home with the laptop. Or of course unless you're Clare who loves me warts and all!
