I've been too busy working to do much knitting this week. I did find enough time to be childish, though. I don't like a certain organisation dedicated to recovering money from students. It's not that I object to paying, but the number of incompetencies beggars belief. The ultimate one (actually, there are worse but you might not believe me) was when they scared the hell out of my neighbour when they sent a private detective to find me. Apparently I was lost. Even though they had written to me the week before confirming that they had my new address....So, today, I felt it was only right that I tell them 'I may be recording this conversation for training purposes and fact verification'. They also get a bit phased when I respond to their threats by telling them to 'Go right ahead and take me to court.' They don't seem to have a response to that in their script. Well, what else can you do when you are bang up to date, in fact, ahead of the payment schedule but they still can't get things sorted out ? So, childish, yes, but the only way to keep some vestige of sanity when forced to communicate with them. I'm about to settle up early - wonder what I'll be threatened with when I do that ?
I'm hoping to see 'Memoirs of a geisha' over the weekend. A tad risky, having read and enjoyed the book a number of years ago. Still, nothing ventured. I'm also going to cast on Odessa -wish me luck.
