first world whinging

i'm about to first world whinge. yes, i know that in the mountains of
crap, from housing to food to blah blah blah, internet access is a
relatively small problem.
but fuckity fuck fuck. i just spent several hours getting the damn run
around in a clearwire store. virgin fucking mobile still hasn't
refunded me for the service i paid for and couldn't use. i would love
to just call qwest and get good old dsl, but in our temporary digs i'm
not allowed to and i'd just have to pay for 2 rounds of pricey
installation charges.
sure, i could go to an internet cafe. but i am in constant pain,
everyday. getting there would be painful, then sitting properly in
hard chairs would do me in. (i told you all, first world whingey, i
whine like a baby)
So i'm tired and hurty and took 5 busses and walked multiple blocks
with nothing to show for it and now i am going to curl up with my
hotwater bottle and pout because i am stuck reading the intertubes on
my phone for the forseeable future.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
