Putting the 'Hi' into Hiatus

Wow.
It's been aaaaages.
Turns out this whole 'real life' business can be a time consuming pain in the ass.

So yeah, I've been busy sorting out travel plans, working fuckloads and doing assorted other junk.

Still, not much to write at the moment as I'm kinda overloaded in the head.

Here's a tip for y'all though:
If you're emailing a relatively large number of highly ranked, government communications staff, don't get distracted and try to work out the correct spelling of hors d'oeuvres using only the powers of your mind.
Mainly because it will be discovered that the powers of your mind are in fact categiorized as 'Feeble' after you realise you've just sent out a batch email with the text "hors ordeavues" sitting just below the "Dear [important government person]" part.

Yeah, my bad.
I think the government have now tagged me as a "Special-Needs Child" in their database.
Next time I'll just write canapes instead.

One of these days, everything will chill the fuck out for a bit and I'll get back to posting with more regularity. Bring on the literary Metamucil!

Back to the grindstone...

He he! better than putting the hell in hello, i guess...

hey even most frenchies can't spell hors d'oeuvres correctly, don't beat yourself up.

although you did manage to mangle it spectacularly well. teehee!

Hey special kid -- I'm glad you're still alive, although sad you are overloaded in the head. :(
See? I even used a "frowny" emoticon to express my sadness over it.

"hors ordeavues" did make me laugh though. Sorry about that.

It me made laugh too.

And at least you don't pronounce it "ca-napes"... or do you?

I think everyone has horror email stories, but that one is particularly good
