Internet drama and cold sweats
I woke up this morning and the big red russian screen on my computer said "Niet (no)".
"You cannot have internet today, for you have a DEBT!"
"We have not sent you a bill, but neither have you pro-actively contacted our company and requested a bill. So we have cut you off. Spaceba and Das Vidanya (thank you and good bye)."
Everything is running pretty smoothly at the moment in Big Beluga's life. Smoothly enough that I am mentally in the "brace" position, ready for something to go wrong. Losing my internet connection really, really bothers me. I have remembered pain from the dark days of the three months last year that I was off line.
However, I can relax. Husband's secretary has been on the blower and as is often the way in Kazakhstan, by paying a big wad of cash to someone and receiving a small bit of paper ripped off the bottom of a computer print out as a receipt, the problem will be solved by this evening!
