Swine flu. That’s all I hear about recently. A newspaper round here listed the symptoms and recommended staying in the house if you have them and calling an NHS hotline. Yeah, problem with that is that the listed symptoms are exactly what someone will have if they have a summer cold or hayfever. As it’s the season for both I can see a lot of people getting worried over nothing. Yet another manifestation of the society of fear we live in.
As I mentioned in comments here a while back, my phone battery has swollen up to about twice it’s normal size and I’m risking an explosion every time I use it. As I’ve seen the results of a phone explosion I’m using my old phone for now, until I either get a new one through or a replacement battery. The good news is I was one of the fifty people chosen to be a Samsung ambassador and should be getting a Samsung i8910 HD sometime soon, to keep. The bad news is that they haven’t given me further details yet and I’ve just got this feeling that something will go wrong and that feeling is usually right. I’m not letting myself get excited yet as it’ll crush me if it goes wrong, so I’m kind of in Limbo until I know for sure what’s going on.
A side effect of not using my regular phone is that I don’t have access to all my games and application files. As such I probably wont be sending my mailing list out this month. Also a load of the research for posts is trapped in that phone so this place will probably be a bit quieter than normal. At the very least I’ll be continuing to release themes and skins on Tuesdays. I’d release them more often but Tuesday is the only day I get PC access to make screenshots. I’ll try to keep up with at least one normal post per week but gathering the resources is a pain in the arse.
Going out for a walk in a bit and off to a museum tomorrow so I probably wont be here all that much the next couple of days. I’ll keep up with my watch list but may not comment much. Of course, if there’s a blatant joke waiting for a punchline in the comments, you know I can’t resist.
