Gettin' down to it...

How sarcastic am i?  well, let's see...

You Have Your Sarcastic Moments
While you're not sarcastic at all times, you definitely have a cynical edge.
In your opinion, not all people are annoying. Some are dead!
And although you do have your genuine moments, you can't help getting your zingers in.
Some people might be a little hurt by your sarcasm, but it's more likely they think you're hilarious.


Interesting take on sarcasm.  You usually find the people who say it is the lowest form of wit, couldn't come up with a witty line if their lives depended on it.   i guess you have to be, not sorry for them exactly but acknowledge that not every one can be clever on cue.  i mean, we all have our days when the perfect comeback simply will not leap to lip...  It'd be fine if you had a scriptwriter to hand or had a couple of minutes to think about it but usually you don't.

It's going to be a busy week...  Starting off with a visit from the Housing people [to check on where i'm living, for some reason not clearly spelled out], maybe just to make sure you are living where you say you are, who knows...  They have given me a time slot when this bird is to call, 9-12pm, bit vague and elastic.  Just means i can't go out until this twit gets here.   Problem with this house is that only one of the bells works into the kitchen.  That's fine if you are actually in the kitchen but if i am in my room with the door closed, i couldn't hear Gabriel's trumpet...  So i will have to prop my door open and leave a note on the door to phone me, as everyone could be out except me.
i've got a load of old post to send back to the post office from the other flats, none of the tenants are interested in doing that - and why should they, it's not their problem.   Our new cleaner starts this weekend, so i should see some dramatic change when i go next.
Tuesday - i have agency interviews - yes, i don't know why i bother either but i have to show willing for the Benefit people, that i am exploring all possibilities...  *yawn*  But i also have booked myself a sight test for new glasses with SpecSavers that afternoon too.  My NHS certificate came on Saturday, finally!  and i rang up straight away and made the appointment.
Wednesday - i have to go visit the Housing Needs people.  i had a letter saying come in and then same morning, a girl rang and said the same thing!  She thinks they may have 'something' for me...  yeah?  that'd be a surprise.   But if it isn't better than here, i'm not interested.   Here, i have bus outside the door, doctor just down the street - chemist & some small shops close enough to walk fairly comfortably, with a Post Office too.   Most of this house is flat, with four steps down to the bedroom [that is the only main thing that stops it from being physically perfect] and lots of light & air in my room.  Okay, we don't have a dryer [Begonia & i are thinking of hiring one] and we could do with more fridge space...  Nothing is perfect but i am happy enough here.   i put myself on their register because of the stupid Housing Benefit payment gap but i have had the top up payments approved until December now.   This will take me up to Pension time.  That's going to be interesting....
Thursday - i'm pretty clear at the moment
Friday - Jobcentre sign in and yet another Interview [How can we get you back to work and off our books], but that's all so far.

There are two rooms now vacant at #46 - the one at #145, i think will be taken shortly as i showed it to a young couple last week who seemed quite keen.   Then two of my guys are going and will be out on 1st July, so that will be interesting too...

Right now, it's lunchtime, so have a great week, guys & gals!!
Stay focused and appreciate what you have got...  i think that is more an instruction for me than you, but there you go!!
