Absolutely Not Your Monkey

I learned recently that Typing Girl is actually an intern. She is getting university credit to sit around here and type massive emails. I suppose I can’t really complain, since I’m actually paid to sit around here and write in my blog. I wish they’d at least get her a quieter keyboard.

I’m not usually one to take stupid online tests, but the questions on the Which Farscape Character are You? one are actually pretty funny. Turns out I’m Aeryn Sung. Another reason I shouldn’t be bitching about Typing Girl. I get paid to take silly online tests!

I emailed my parents, brother and sister about the real estate ad I found yesterday, and my brother emailed me back with a warning that my parents have discovered a letter I wrote 15 years ago in which I criticize them in what they obviously feel an unfair fashion. Lessee, that would be when I was in high school, so it’s probably my old journal. Imagine, a teenager complaining about his parents in his journal! Unheard of!

Last night after work I went over to the Chungking Mansions Taipei to meet with the landlord, or at least some representative thereof, but the guy didn’t show up. The girl who lives in the apartment now called him up, and he said he was sick. So we’re going to try it again today. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a commitment this time, since I need to inform my current landlord that I am leaving.

Later on I went over to check out Mindcrime’s new digs. A couple of dirty workmen were installing a couple of equally dirty air conditioners. The only furniture in the place was a bed and some shelves, but it’s a nice, large apartment for an incredibly cheap price in a good location. They’re lucky to have gotten it. I still give Mindcrime about 3-5 minutes before he starts bitching about it.

Dean, Graham, Mindcrime and I are going to meet up tonight at My Other Place after I am finished with the landlord thing. I also have to open a new bank account for my new job. I met with one of the people who hired me this afternoon after lunch, and she told me that there is no Chinese New Year bonus for part-time workers. I guess that makes sense in a way, but it’s still a bit of a disappointment.

Another disappointment is this fucking mobile phone I bought. I thought that, since it is a Nokia, it would be at least decent, but the reception and broadcast quality are crap. I don’t have the money to spend on another new phone, and my old phone gave up the ghost, so I’m just going to have to make due with this one for now.
