Lost Day

My employer had a major network outage today, and even though it's 12:30 already, I haven't been able to work all day. Thing is, I can't go out and run errands or anything because the call can come in at any time saying the system is back up. So I'm playing Cafe Mahjongg and reading gossip blogs to pass the time.

Did you hear about this? A guy in Australia is selling his life on this website ( I read online that his wife left him, and so he's trying to sell everything - including his jobs and friends - to make a fresh start. Interesting concept, one I don't think I could do, but I applaud this guy for his efforts. Could you do this? Sell your life and start over?

I love the internets.

So all I need to do to get a life is buy it? I'll take one of those supermodels lives please.

My internet keeps fading in and out too, I hate that.

Agh. I have just accepted Spam as a part of my life....

I was going to say, tough life you got there. Mahjongg and Gossip instead of work? I wish there was a way to make a living like that!!

I tried that selling my life thing, but Pelegrim kept selling himself back to me.

Diane - Nah, it's not worth it. I turned it back off.

See, that's the thing. That guy is getting rid of everything but the clothes on his back and the money in his wallet. I could never do it.

That Cafe Mahjongg game looks like fun, I wonder if they make it for Mac?

My life for sale, I wouldn't know anybody that would want to buy me or my shit.

Wait, he should just donate himself to a worthy cause. That would make himself feel real good about himself.

Ryan - Cafe Mahjongg is online, so you can play it on either platform.
