where the fuck is that ugly little bastard

okay, okay. i was moving house. my cunt of a landlord decided that the repair bills required to satisfy regulations for student housing were greater than the profits from the students, and instead of installing functional windows, sold the apartment i live in. he is a money-grubbing coke-snorting underdeveloped shit of a pathetic little man, and i should dearly love to see him floss his ass with razor wire. he has caused us a fuckton of stress, not to mention necessitated my spending over a month disconnected from the Wired, calling agents and companies, viewing a hundred dingy nasty flats occupied by flies and leftover Playboy posters, having to have discussions about who's actually compatible with who before two people who would very much not get on move in together by accident, trying to sort out the ~£400 heating bill caused by the abovementioned cunt making us keep electric heaters on 24-7 when the boiler broke down for two months (he didn't want to pay for repairs to burst pipes), trying not to let my final undergrad project crash and burn, etc.

i'm not dead. i am buped up to the eyeballs, allowing me a modicum of clarity to understand and accept the situation. we have now found a new apartment where i will stay with one housemate until i graduate, upon which i will get my own place. all of this is still being funded by undergraduate loans and grants.

Southpaw news in a little while, sapes. i've got 216 mails to reply to. cc

PS i'm not single, handful of Googlers. i spent Valentine's Day with my Muad-Dib, who does not give a shit about gender or orientation, we got fried chicken and had a picnic. i have been with him for close to two years, i love him irrevocably, i'm not interested. you also have got to stop referring to me as a "lady" when i am genderless.

Your moving out has improved the cultural life of the city, by opening up some prime studio space for struggling artists. Because they're the the poor fucks who get the "no-one sane would pay money for this" spaces. ",)
Shitsux, boss. G'luck with the new place.

Well who woulda thunk it? My favorite biohacker is still alive. Sucks to hear of your misfortunes, so good luck in that new apartment.

I'm actually pretty surprised to hear you care about valentines day. I've so far always managed to make a point to my mates that I don't care for valentines day, roses and all those things. There are nicer ways of saying 'I love you' than by buying plants that'll look like crap in a week or two. I usually completely ignore the day. If you're single, the day gets you down, and if you're not, you're being a ass about that fact.

@Max: agreed. personally, i hate holidays in general. we shouldn't need some special occasion to be reborn, or to have a chance to start over, or to give gifts to each other. in my opinion, holidays just devalue this stuff; holidays with rituals even more so.

@L: welcome back. i actually figured (as you may be able to tell in one of the comment sections) that you were busy with university again.

once you've completely settled in and life is back to normal(whatever "normal" is for you), you should check out and start contributing to the new site, biohack.me. that goes for all of you. go over there, now.

wait, am i understanding this correctly; a bunch of people asked you out through your lijit widget? and i thought i was pathetic.

Reminds me of the guy from that black books ep.

Sad to hear it, but hey new apartment. Do you already have a space set up to slice yourself open? :)

Hope your new pad is cozy, dude.

Moving is a pain, but at least you might find some long lost piece you've been fretting over. ;)

Landlords must rank alongside redtop hacks, "infosec experts" and pinko pundits for most odious group of people by job. In my short period of renting houses, I didn't encounter one who was not a hypocritical, repugnant cunt of a man.

"... a money-grubbing coke-snorting underdeveloped shit of a pathetic little man..."

Magnificent. I love it.

heya - what does 'buped' mean? I wanted to use it before I realised that its absence from urban dictionary probably means a typo of another word I don't know or a REALLY niche UKism. If you give me the low-down, me love it long time and *bupe* (or similar)'s semantic fame will spread across the land.

Gah. Screw that push-enter-to-post shit, especially when I've got a clumsy semi-working finger...

Unqi, why don't you go and offer her your connection? Also: Fuck you!

@L: Once you're done with all those emails, you should make an "I get email" post a la P'Zed.
