    Made it:
    - Productive enough day so far, and got an assignment more or less finished.
    - Been so bored that I'm looking forward to work, even though it's the night shift.

    Made it weird:
    - Was making dinner and one my housemates walks in with his friend, who it turns out I met when I was looking at other places when I first moved here. What a freaky, small world.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.
    - Wilkins Micawber

    If anyone wants a free $5M US feel free to contact Ali per this email I got from him today.

    àéFrom: Mr Ali Desmurs
    African Development Bank
    Burkina Faso (ADB)
    Ouagadougou - Burkina Faso .
    Dear friend,
    I am writting to seek your co-operation over this business, Please due welcome this letter.
    I am Mr Ali Desmurs, the director of the accounts & auditing dept .at the African Development Bank Ouagadougou-west Africa . (A D B) With due respect, I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be beneficial to both of us.
    At the bank's last accounts/auditing evaluations, my staffs came across an old account which was being maintained by a foreign client who we learnt was among the deceased passengers of motor accident
    Since his demise, even the members of his family haven't applied for claims over this fund and it has been in the safe deposit account until I discovered that it cannot be claimed since our client is a foreign national and we are sure that he has no next of kin here to file claims over the money. As the director of the department, this discovery was brought to my office so as to decide what is to be done. I decided to seek ways through which to transfer this money out of the bank and out of the country too.
    The total amount in the account is ten million five hundred thousand dollars (USD 10,500,000.00).with my positions as staffs of the bank, I am handicapped because I cannot operate foreign accounts and cannot lay bonafide claim over this money. The client was a foreign national and you will only be asked to act as his next of kin and I will supply you with all the necessary information and bank data to assist you in being able to transfer this money to any bank of your choice where this money could be transferred into.
    The total sum will be shared as follows: 50% for me, 50% for you and expenses incidental occur during the transfer will be incure by both of us. The transfer is risk free on both sides hence you are going to follow my instruction till the fund transfer to your account.
    I want to assure you that this transaction is absolutely risk free since I work in this bank that is why you should be confident in the success of this transaction because you will be updated with information as at when desired.
    I will wish you to keep this transaction secret and confidential as I am hoping to retire with my share of this money at the end of transaction which will be when this money is safety in your account. I will then come over to your country for sharing according to the previously agreed percentages. You might even have to advise me on possibilities of investment in your country or elsewhere of our choice. May God help you to help me to a restive retirement, Amen.
    Please for further information and enquiries feel free to contact me back immediately for more explanation and better understanding throught this email address (ali.desmurs210@gmail.com)
    I am waiting for your urgent response!!!
    Thanks and remain blessed.
    Mr Ali Desmurs

    Ruined My Day
    - Had a taxi run up the back of me pretty majorly. A truck pulled out in front of me then stopped realising I was there...but as it had stopped in my lane all I could do was stop as well. Taxi kept coming. Back of my car is bunged and I can't put the boot up, but the taxi fell to pieces and had to be toed. Third accident in three years and I wasn't to blame for any of them.
    - Have had too many skittles. Have an abundance of multi-coloured sugar phlegm.
    You going to be looked after with regards to insurance? There's been a bit of talk down here about taxi drivers not actually being insured properly.

    It's great to see Burkina Faso back on CW. Suspiciously at the same time that Murphy is allowed back on...

    Congrats.

    Made:
    Up to 3400 words done of my dissertation. More than a third!

    Ruined:
    Just remembered I volunteered two months ago to do an extra shift at work, 10:30-7 tomorrow. Didn't anticipate back then that the dissertation would be such hard work. I'll probably have to go to the library both before and after work. Intense Friday coming up.

    Well the bloke had a licence which was a good start.

    When I asked him about insurance he said to sort it out with the company. I told RACQ all about it and they agreed to pay my excess and will discuss the matter with Black & White on my behalf.

    Happy enough with that, tbh.
