Never trust the postal service...

I had a somewhat frantic phonecall from my recruitment company today. Apparently they'd hadn't received my timesheet after I'd posted it in last friday, and if they didn't receive it within an hour I wouldn't get paid this week. The problem was that I didn't have a copy of my timesheet to fax to them. I remembered the personnel officer had photocopied it after she'd signed it, which was a lifesaver. She wasn't in today, but a girl in the office dug a copy out for me so I could fax it on. So todays' wonder women are the colleges' office people, including the nice lady who taught me how to send a fax (would you believe I'd never touched a fax machine before?). Anyway, now that's sorted I should be getting two weeks worth of pay on friday, just in time to draw out money for my holidays and also get me out of minus money.

Right now I'm feeling a little upset, Aislene had to properly evict one of the other housemates of the house-next-door and she'd been left with the two ones she liked the most, Spiral and Jonathon. In the end she chose Jonathon after much prompting and deadlines from Big Brother, as he'd said earlier that he'd be able to cope with it best. She was so upset and I really don't like seeing people cry, it makes me want to cry, and these were proper sobs. Some people seem to think she was putting it on, but I honestly don't think she is. If ever there was a reason for sobbing your heart out, I think this would be the one of them (maye not much in the grand scheme of things, but it's still upsetting). Anyway, I don't know if anyone ever watched the first season of Angel, but if you did and remember Doyle, Spiral reminds me so much of him. It's not just the really brogue Irish accent... honestly.

Yes, I do realise I'm really sad and pathetic for being affected in this way by Big Brother. I'm going to go and tidy up, to help me be less pathetic.

Bit of a mixed response. I never usually watch Big Brother (I watched the 1st series, but then again, who didn't?) but this one has caught my attention for some reason.
