Confidence In Wellington City Council Reinforced

I am actually amazed, even flabbergasted that Wellington City Council rectified not collecting our recycling bin earlier this week. They actually came round and collected and emptied the bin from where it was beside our house (as we had brought it back from beside the road when it wasn't collected on the day).

This is the service I 'expect' when something goes wrong, ie a full rectification of the error. I just didn't expect to get it from the Council (esp. not when I complained via their website - - you're normally hear nothing don't you?). Is it now really safe for me to have full confidence in the Council, in local government? Perhaps not yet, but this experience has certainly increased it.


Different Google Logo Designs Showing On iGoogle

I would like to be able to see the various Google logo designs they have on the original Google search page on iGoogle, but there's no iGoogle design that enables this - frustrating. Please tell me if one's ever made.

All Wound Up, But What To Unwind On?

I have this feeling like I should go for a walk and exercise or something, but a powerful unwillingness to do this or anything. What am I meant to be doing right now? I just can't make it out. I'm all wound up but with nothing to unwind on.


Losing Things

I am so disappointed with myself – to have lost my brown scarf from Kathmandu in Nepal and my black notebook, simply through carelessness. It's just so slack, and so unlike me usually.
