Sometimes I wonder how I manage to get through life  
So this was my Saturday:
Wake up with a sore stomach and a headache. Mope about the house, put off doing the grocery shopping until I absolutely had to go. Get home, collapse on couch, put off getting ready for friend's daughter's party until I absolutely had to - contemplate calling in sick because of how I felt, then deciding to man up and get ready. Do makeup, get dressed, get on a bus into the city. Walk for ten minutes to the Eagle St Wharf where the Kookaburra Queen is berthed. Look around, wonder where everyone else is. Start messaging people like crazy "where are you?" Discover that the party is next weekend. Walk back to bus terminal, catch bus back home, arriving three and a half hours after I left.

Phishing emails are getting more and more sophisticated. Recently I had one from Spotify Support that looked so close to the real thing; even the links across the bottom (Contact Us; Download for Apple; Download for Android etc) went to a www.spotify URL - it was only if you looked closely you saw that the rest of it didn't make sense. The email stated that I had to reset my password because they'd changed it, due to it being the same password that was compromised on another site. Huh? But if you weren't paying too close attention, and not really thinking about it, you could be caught. I almost was.

Oh, no! How annoying to arrive a week early ...

It was annoying, I will confess, but I've no-one to blame but myself! I had three text messages which all specifically mentioned the date, but still managed to put it in my calendar on the wrong one.

Oh noooo - for feeling poorly and then for being a week early. Ack! Better than a week late I guess, but poor old you! Three and a half hours is a horrible time for that to take too...

I hardly ever use links via emails to do things, exactly because of phishing... but it makes it hard to know whether to believe other emails that might just be genuine too, which I find very annoying... I miss the relative safely of paper letters - so much harder for people to scam you!

Three and a half hours was time I could have better spent, that's for sure! Still as I mentioned above, no-one to blame but myself....

Aw, thank you. Yes, much better now. Whatever it was, it was over in a day.
